INTELLIGENCE FOr THE WINE CONSUMEr
BY LEN NAPOLITANO

What foods match best with dessert wines?
There’s an old rule that says sweet foods should be served with sweet wines. But I find this rule to work less often than when I match salty food with sweet wines. On those rare occasions when sweet wine is paired successfully with sweet food, it is usually the wine that is the sweeter of the two. If the food is sweeter than the wine, the wine tastes flat and thin. When the subject of pairing food and wine is approached, there are always classic marriages that are raised and pairing food with sweet wines is no exception. One legendary pairing is Port wine with Stilton and other blue cheeses. This is a perfect example of a sweet and powerful wine balanced by a rich, aromatic cheese. Another great duo is Sauternes and foie gras. In this example it is the fat of the goose liver that is complemented by the sweetness and viscosity of the famous wine from Bordeaux, France. Another great companion of
SEDANS

Sauternes is the intense spicy flavor of Roquefort cheese. Just as with pairing dry table wines with meals, the pairing of dessert wines should take into consideration the intensity, weight and texture of the accompanying food. Light dessert dishes work best with light, crispy white wines. Heavier, richer desserts deserve fuller bodied sweet wines, usually red, as with Vintage Port, but sometimes a full-bodied white wine also works, as in the case of Sauternes. Some lightweight sweet white wines include Moscato and Late Harvest Riesling. Prices for these wines can start as low as $10 a bottle. The more intensely flavored versions will be sold in halfbottles and run slightly higher in price. Sauternes is extremely expensive, especially from older vintages. This wine is handcrafted with only the best quality grapes available, and only in years that yield grapes that meet the highest standards of the fine winemakers of Bordeaux.

BY JOSH STEIN

Picking Decisions: Whites
When we think of the components of a finished white wine, what comes to mind? For me, I think of bouquet, level of fruitiness, acidity, mouthfeel, presence or absence of oak and level of residual sweetness. With this list of components at hand, every wine can be “reverseengineered” in terms of series of decisions made with those end goals in mind. This is why the truism, “Everything we do or do not do has an effect on the final wine” is, indeed, a truism, not a cliché. We say it to ourselves as a reminder so as not to get lazy or take for granted each and every step of winemaking. When we start to make picking decisions, there seem to be lots of variables, like variety, Brix (sugar) levels, maturity for depth of flavor and color, upcoming weather, etc., but I start with the processing in mind: is this going into steel or oak or something else like concrete or food-grade plastic? Why start there amongst all the other angles into picking? Because of what is trying to be emphasized based on the fermentation vessel. If we are using steel or another non-wood tank, then we are seeking to preserve aroma, keep higher acids and develop a more citrusy, grassy or minerally final wine. Think of an all-steel Chardonnay, a Sauvignon Blanc or a Pinot Gris and you’ll get the idea of why we pick earlier and are less concerned about what is developing on the skins: skin contact is going to be as minimal as possible, generally, and the wines are going to be kept away from oxygen and produced through low temperatures to preserve freshness. If, however, we are seeking to give extended skin contact ala “orange” wines or extended lees and oak contact to impart body and fullness (think oaky, buttery Chardonnay, for example), then we are going to pick at different ripenesses, at different Brix, and after longer hanging as the results we are looking for in the grapes come about only through those decisions. Then, because we want that contact continued through fermentation and beyond, oak is usually used in some form to add depth and body as well as help to start or nurture secondary, malolactic fermentation because those bacteria are resident in oak, and thus produce a transformation of citrus notes into apple, pear, peach and other tropical fruits in the finished wine. If an oak influence on aroma and a hint on the tongue are desired without any creaminess, juice separated from the lees via racking from vessel to vessel, ala a gravy strainer, will be paired with oak adjuncts of any number of kinds, which allow for quite exact “recipes” based on volumes and hours or days of exposure. Conversely, if a strong mouthfeel of time in contact with lees and oak are desired, the juice and lees together go into oak barrels, and length of time, stirring the lees, and toasting level of the oak all have an impact on the final wine. Residual sugar is actually something which is easy to control if the winemaking is detail-oriented. Fermentation is never the same twice, but each and every one can and must be tracked for temperature, yeast health, amounts and kinds of nutrients, Brix and alcohol, and other leading indicators of how well and how fast the conversion of sugars to alcohols and malic to lactic acid, if applicable, is happening. Arresting the fermentation, pulling the emergency break, if you will, is generally done through shutting down the temperature and adding enough sulfites to knock out the yeast. It’s more of a coast than a dead stop, but attention to the numbers and experience usually produce desired results. Fine winemaking is very much akin to fine cooking and baking, so it’s no wonder the two go hand in hand in wine country. We strive through our winegrowing, like the chef who grows and raises her own flora and flauna, to produce fantastic “ingredients” for which we have recipes developed through education, time in others’ cellars and experience. The next time you sip a white, think about what decisions were or were not made, and consider, too, what you would have done the same or differently had the recipe bezen yours to tweak. Enjoy!

Open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. 8466 St Helena Hwy, rutherford, CA 94573 (707) 963-3600 | www.peju.com

Sara Fowler joined Peju as their Winemaker in the summer of 2006, bringing a wealth of knowledge and creativity into the cellar. Sara’s passion for Bordeaux varietals and knack for innovative blending make her the perfect fit to lead Peju’s winemaking team. She is a master blender, and has headed Peju’s efforts to gain organic certification in the Rutherford Vineyard and is overseeing the winery’s sustainable farming efforts in the Persephone and Wappo Vineyards with organic certification in the near future. Sara has traveled the world representing the Napa Valley as a speaker, guest panelist, trainer and wine educator and currently lives in St. Helena with her husband, Matt, and three sons.

WCTW: What’s your favorite local restaurant and what draws you there? oC: I love the Ravenette. The menu is hand-written every day and they use only fresh local ingredients. There is always a vegetarian option and the space is intimate and welcoming. The kitchen is open so you get a good view of the food preparation and the service is friendly yet professional. WCTW: What other places do you like to “hang out?” oC: Bravas has done a fabulous job with their back patio and the atmosphere is casual yet refined. I am a dedicated fan of Willi’s Wine Bar in Santa Rosa for their extensive list of BTG wines and availability of small pours. I also just had an exceptionally good experience at the new Kendall-Jackson restaurant Par Take. A fun concept and great opportunity to explore the depth of the KJ portfolio. Rosso in Santa Rosa is fantastic as well, I really appreciate the niche they have carved for themselves and they give the kids a ball of dough with which to play then bake it for them very endearing and appreciated. WCTW: What’s your favorite place to picnic? oC: I am a tremendous fan of the trails around Lake Sonoma; the Half a Canoe trail offers spectacular views, a challenging hike, great animal watching and beautiful vegetation. WCTW: Who is your favorite artist or style of art? oC: Traditionally speaking I adore Maxfield Parrish. There is an ethereal quality to his work in sort of a fairytale/mythological vibe. On a more quirky note I am completely enamored of the collage artist Hope Kroll’s work; very edgy but thought-provoking. WCTW: What’s your favorite extracurricular activity? oC: Hiking or maybe biking; just being outdoors and active. Ondine Chattan has been with Geyser Peak for 14 years during which time she has honed and refined the style of their wines, introduced innovative production techniques, and enthusiastically promoted the Alexander Valley and their broad portfolio of award-winning wines.

dAve GUFFY
A Nurturer of Grapes Who makes many, many Great Wines
BY JOSH STEIN

4411 redwood rd Napa, CA 94558 (707) 255-1144 | www.hesscollection.com

The world-famous Hess Collection on Mt. Veeder has only had two winemakers since its founding in 1982, and Dave Guffy has been the second one since 1999. Of course, there’s a wrinkle to his job as Director of Winemaking Operations since winemaking is only part of everything he does as he also manages the vineyards and grower relations. Dave notes, “It isn’t just the grapes. I need to see the health of the vineyard and what shape everything is in. We operate under the philosophy that what we are really doing is growing a bottle of wine, so this combination of responsibilities simply made sense.” Indeed, through his understated, sure guidance, the winery has grown from two to four collections, to a total of more than two dozen wines annually in need of the stewardship he provides all the way from before bud break in the vineyards through to bottling at the winery. As Dave remarks, “I have a strong belief in making wine in the vineyard, working each site to absolutely maximize flavors. My goal is to make ripe, fruit-forward California-style wines with both power and elegance.” And that he does. Dave’s exposure to the challenge of science-driven winegrowing began early when the San Jose, California,-native would spend summers on his grandparents’ five-hundred-acre Kansas farm: “The farming aspect of wine has a primal challenge about it, and it’s the same with winemaking – you can never know everything.” His college career started at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo as a Food Science student, but work as a cellar rat in a small Santa Cruz Mountain winery spurred his transferring to Fresno State, where he received a degree in Enology and Viticulture. Shortly thereafter, Dave was named Assistant Winemaker and then Winemaker at Santa Maria’s Cambria Estate Winery in 1990 and 1992, respectively, before being hand-selected by Donald Hess to guide the winery’s pioneer position in the wine industry in transforming to sustainable and organic farming and winemaking practices. “I learned very early that I have to walk the vines,” he says. “Being environmentally conscious is not only the right thing to do, but in the end produces the best tasting wine.” Dave’s challenge was to sustainably farm more than one thousand acres, more than seven hundred in the Napa Valley alone. He describes his and the winery’s task thusly: “The mantle of sustainability brings more dust on your boots. Our approach now is to grow and nurture the healthiest vines we can, avoiding problems by becoming great farmers. In the past, we waited for a problem to arise and then applied a ‘fix.’ Now, we avoid that approach, and everything is better, for the vines, our workers, and our community.” The results? This initiative led to Hess Collection’s being one of the first ten wineries to be certified by

www.WineCountryThisWeek.com

WiNe CoUNTrY THiS WeeK | oN THe Cover
the Napa Valley Vintners Association under the Napa Green Winery and Napa Green Land programs and one of the first seventeen to receive certification through the California Sustainable Winegrowing Alliance. It’s also produced many award-winning wines through the winery’s credo: “By being responsible in our business and winegrowing practices, we are able to return to the land what we ask it to provide.” The resulting range of releases is more than impressive, really. The Hess Collection Mt. Veeder Estate wines show off this unique mountain in Napa with the highest elevation, coolest growing season and most geologically diverse soils of any growing area in the Valley. The Hess Napa Valley releases draw upon special fruit chosen from single vineyards. The Hess Select bottlings utilize estate fruit combined with that from grower partners in the North Bay who utilize the winery’s sustainable practices. Perhaps the most exciting from both a winemaking as well as wine-enjoying perspective is the Hess Small Block series with almost a dozen specially selected wines to display winemaking finesse with less familiar varietals, giving a sense of the estate’s range for growing premium grapes. What one gets in each bottle is Dave’s signature: a wine that expresses where it came from, guided each step along to the way to show the purity of its fruit and the vineyard where it grew. Try one to see what a farmer’s vision produces – and this is the time of year to do so as the Estate is simply riotous in nature’s bounty. Enjoy!

AHWAHNee HoTeL
Thanks for Giving Us Vintners’ Holidays
Thanksgiving isn’t the only great holiday in November. For food and wine lovers, November means it’s time for a different fall festival that embodies America’s natural bounty to an even greater extent. It’s called Vintners’ Holidays at Yosemite National Park. Celebrating 32 years in 2013, Vintners’ Holidays brings authentic vintners – not sales reps – together with Yosemite’s guests, and the result is a top-shelf festival of good times and great wines. What’s even more special about the event is that all the action takes place inside the legendary Four-Diamond Ahwahnee hotel in the heart of Yosemite Valley. The idea for Vintners’ Holidays was inspired by California’s plentiful vineyards and the winemakers who tend to them with self-sacrificing devotion. Guests choose from six sessions that run from November 11 to December 6 and are treated to an intimate welcome reception with the session’s vintners, a series of wine-tasting seminars and a divine five-course gala dinner. Executive Chef Percy Whatley and the Ahwahnee Culinary Team design the custom gala menu to pair perfectly with the sessions’ featured wines. So not only is the atmosphere stunning, but the flavors are equally world class. With Yosemite’s fall colors as a backdrop, each year this event attracts more than 20 talented winemakers who are crafting some of California’s finest wines. You’ll find iconic labels such as Silver Oak and Rombauer sprinkled throughout the sessions. Another fine example, the first session of 2013 (November 11–12) features Frank Ostini and Gray Hartley of Hitching Post Wine, who are local celebrities on the Central Coast. Their exposure exploded since the release of the movie Sideways, and their variety of excellent Pinots make them a hot ticket. Session two (November 13–14) will be hosted by Evan Goldstein, who

The third and fourth sessions (November 17–19, November 20– 21) feature Dan Berger as moderator. Dan is widely regarded as one of the best wine writers in the business and has authored two books: Beyond the Grapes: An Inside Look at Napa Valley and Beyond the Grapes: An Inside Look at Sonoma County. Session five (December 1–3) features industry legend Margrit Mondavi of Robert Mondavi Winery. The final session of Vintners’ Holidays 2013 (December 4–5) features Andy Beckstoffer, who single-handedly changed the wine business and was inducted into the Vintners Hall of Fame in 2010. In all, the Vintners’ Holidays experience is a lavish yet tasteful adventure. You’ll get closer to people that share similar passions. You’ll get closer to the finest wines that North America can produce. Plus, you’ll get closer to a wilderness that captivates the imaginations of all who visit.

Caymus Vineyards Purchases Vineyard, Winery Site in Solano County
Caymus Vineyards in Rutherford, Napa Valley has recently purchased a 178-acre site and submitted permit plans for a winery, production and warehouse facility along Cordelia Road, south of Fairfield, California. If approved, the build-out would be constructed in phases, with completion slated for 2016 or 2017. Caymus Napa Valley Cabernet wines will remain Napa Valley fruit. But as members of the Wagner family explore new wines and new wine growing regions, a new winery in Solano county will be constructed. The site is located eight minutes from Napa, quite close to the home winery in the Napa Valley and will be home to production-related traffic and located in closer proximity to the four lane highways. Owner Chuck Wagner states, “Vineyards positioned strategically within our maritime climate of California are the core of Wagner quality, yet some areas of the winemaking process can be best performed elsewhere. In our own small way, we will be helping protect the iconic Napa Valley by reducing truck traffic caused by bottling and supply deliveries. Vineyard land has been protected as an agricultural preserve since 1968 and it is about time that our two lane highway system has some equal consideration. With 35,000 acres of manicured vineyards Napa Valley’s monoculture and life blood is wine. Tourism allows window shopping of this most exceptional valley and there is no wine region on earth more intriguing than the Napa Valley – it has become a must see destination in the U.S.A. The Napa Valley should be protected and every little bit helps – our limited truck traffic included. In addition, I am excited to discover the wine potential of Napa’s neighboring county of Solano. Right under our nose exists a relatively untapped maritime region – where a winemaker’s imagination can still run wild.” An interesting side note is that Wagner’s ancestors acquired 70 acres of Napa land in 1858, then bought an additional 150 acres of land in Solano County in 1861. This family began farming in Napa and Solano counties about 150 years ago and today they are proud to showcase a collection of wines that have a reputation for quality and consistency, sourced from the premiere wine growing regions of California. The Wagner Family of Wine has proven they are clear leaders as they are the only winery in the world to have been awarded the title of “Wine of the Year” by Wine Spectator twice, for their Caymus Special Selection Cabernet Sauvignon. Their desire to do something truly special and make the finest wines they can, drives them to try new techniques, refine practices, and continue to improve the quality of their wines.

Peju Province Winery Celebrates Harvest
BY CHArLES NEAVE

It depends on which way you’re looking when you turn off Highway 29 in Rutherford. Straight down the drive is the stucco and stone 50-foot French Provincial-looking tower with its large antique stained glass window in the tasting room. It is also the same tower you see on every label of their Peju Province estate wine. Sitting on top of the weathered copper roof is one indication that what you are entering is a charming mix of fantasy and reality. It is a unicorn weathervane. Look to either side and vineyards stretch out into the distance. After you park you are confronted with fountains, a calm reflecting pool and a profusion of carefully designed and tended plantings. This should come as no surprise when it comes to founder Tony Peju. From the time he came into the world at the family home on the Caspian Sea, then later in France, England and Southern California, agriculture, in all of its various forms, has been central to his life. When he and his wife founded Peju in 1982, his decision to buy this particular 30-acre parcel came down to one thing: location. A mantra heard everywhere in wine country. Today, Peju Province remains a small, family owned and operated winery that stresses organic and sustainable farming practices. “Our estate-grown fruit develops into wines that exhibit a graceful pairing of power and elegance,” is a phrase you often hear. If you want a real winery experience then the Peju Annual Grape Stomp on Saturday August 24, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. is the place to be. Gather your friends for a day you will be talking about for years to come. You’ll enjoy a welcome taste of wine and a continental breakfast when you get there and then it’s off to “Stomping Man” for the grape stomp and BBQ in a vineyard location with a glass of Peju Provence at hand. All of this for just $75. If you want elegance, make plans to attend the Peju 30th Anniversary Harvest Celebration under the Stars on Saturday, September 21, from 6 p.m. until the music stops at 10:30 p.m. The Peju family invites you to share in this intimate celebration, which they promise “will be filled with special selections from the cellar, a bountiful meal prepared by Chef Emily Buller in the Peju Kitchen and dancing to live music under the stars.” Black and Red Wine Country cocktail attire is recommended and the tariff is $215 per person. Stomp grapes or tap your feet to music, the choice is yours. Just be sure to mark your calendar and get your stomping boots, or your dancing shoes, ready for action. Peju Province is located at 8466 St Helena Hwy, Rutherford 94573. They are online at www.peju.com; their phone number is 1-800-4467358. The beautiful and friendly tasting room with its wide variety of tasting options and an extensive list of both red and white wines is open daily 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Note that some special tastings require reservations. They are also on Facebook and Twitter.

CHIEF CONCIERGE, SILVERADO RESORT & SPA, NAPA

WCTW: Describe the perfect day in wine country. TJ: Light breakfast at Sweetie Pies in Downtown
Napa; Pick up lunch at Genova’s Deli; Round Pond Winery and Olive Oil Mill; Rutherford Hill Winery for wine tasting and picnic lunch overlooking the valley; cave tour at Schramsberg Winery; Robert Biale Vineyards – wrap the day up with some of the best Zin in the industry! WCTW: What’s your favorite overall varietal and where do you like to go to taste it? TJ: Living in the Napa Valley, there is only one logical choice here: Cabernet Sauvignon! Silver Oak Cellars,: the “original cult winery,” 100% American oak, great stuff! WCTW: What winery do you think has the best “over-the-top” experience to offer visitors? TJ: Palmaz Winery: This experience will be a memory for life … must do. WCTW: Where would you take friends to learn about/taste organic wines? TJ: Frog’s Leap Winery is the true pioneer in this category. WCTW: Who is your favorite new winery or hot spot wine bar/tasting room? TJ: Odette Estate Winery in the Stags Leap District. It’s all three; a winery, a wine bar and a tasting room … great staff, fair pricing and excellent wines: Odette, Plumpjack and Cade are all available here. Also, it’s less than ten minutes from downtown Napa. WCTW: Tell us the best wineries to bring pets. TJ: With more than 100 wineries posting “dogfriendly” signs in the Napa Valley, most dogs would be in heaven on any visit to the Napa Valley. However, Rombauer Vineyards would top this list. Long history of dog lovers there!

WCTW: If you were to visit just one winery,
which would you choose and why? JL: It’s difficult to answer this question because there are so many amazing wineries, but If I had to chose one winery it would have to be Darioush. From the moment you enter the gate, you are transported into an amazing experience: the impressive architecture, world-class wines and the impeccable service. WCTW: Which winery has your favorite cave tour? JL: Schramsberg WCTW: What’s your favorite overall varietal and where do you like to go to taste it? JL: My ultimate varietal would be Pinot Noir and I would either go to Artesa or Domaine Carneros. WCTW: Where do you send guests that want to learn about wine? JL: I think Robert Mondavi has one of the best educational programs. WCTW: Where would you take friends to learn about/taste organic wines? JL: Frog’s Leap WCTW: What areas and/or wineries would you recommend that are not part of the popular wine country? JL: The Russian River Valley WCTW: Tell us the best wineries to bring pets. JL: Landmark, Artesa and Chateau Montelena WCTW: Which winery has your favorite cave/cellar tour? JL: Schramsberg WCTW: What’s the best wine country picnic spot? JL: Pride Mountain Vineyards

WCTW: Describe the perfect day in wine country. TW: Begin at Downtown Bakery in Healdsburg
for breakfast, their sticky buns and croissants are a must. A nice walk around town afterward is always refreshing. I would then head into Russian River Valley to explore some Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Copain on Eastside Road is a must-do for Pinot Noir and Syrah, then Iron Horse for bubbles. In downtown Sebastopol my new favorite watering hole is Claypool Cellars. The tasting room is set in an old train car in the middle of Gravenstein Station. Continue on to the coast to Bodega Head for the stunning cliff side view. After stopping at a local kite shop and taking it to play at Goat Rock, I would round the coastal experience with dinner at River’s End Restaurant in Jenner right around sunset time. To end the evening, get a nightcap at the hip Spoonbar in downtown Healdsburg. WCTW: What’s the best wine country picnic spot? TW: Gustufson by Lake Sonoma is one of my absolute favorites. This hidden gem winery has breathtaking views and for the architectural enthusiast, the house has a Frank Lloyd Wright style to it. They also offer fantastic wines at a great price. On your way up stop at the Historic Dry Creek General Store for lunch provisions. Gustufson is worth the drive but best to start here first then work your way down the valley to other fun spots such as Bella, Preston, Lambert Bridge and Seghesio.

Remember: Please sip responsibly! Plan to taste at no more than three wineries based on these recommendations.

Food & Wine Trails Announces 2014-2015 Wine-Cruise Series
In 1989, Food & Wine Trails President Larry Martin launched his company’s first wine-cruise with 50 guests and five Sonoma and Napa wineries traveling on a Royal Viking cruise. Royal Viking is long gone as are some of those wineries, but Martin has announced his company’s 25th wine-cruise season, with eleven wineries sailing to Europe, the Caribbean, New Zealand and Australia in 2014 and early 2015. Wine cruising has exploded in popularity since Martin’s first cruise as winelovers from every walk of life have discovered the benefits of cruising with their favorite winery owner or winemaker. Martin's company now handles over 3,000 customers a year, but faces competition from mega-companies like Costco and Expedia travel and from the cruise lines themselves, with Celebrity and Holland America hosting their own wine themed cruises. The increased competition doesn’t bother Martin who says he’s differentiated his product with three signature inclusions: • Each cruise is hosted by the winery owner or winemaker instead of a marketing representative • Many of the wines poured are rare or not available elsewhere • In various ports visited by the cruise, customers can taste and have lunch at some of Europe’s most sought-after wine estates Martin adds, “We avoid the larger sized ships, as our guests enjoy the conviviality and quality of traveling on smaller to midsize cruise lines like Oceania, Azamara and Uniworld River Cruises. This gives our programs more value and attracts more enthusiasts.” All Food & Wine Trails wine cruises include private parties and wine tastings, and an onboard winemaker dinner and optional wine-related shore tours. Most include free or discounted airfare from the US, and booking incentives such as free prepaid gratuities and onboard credits. The typical high-season starting price for a seven-night 2014 Food & Wine Trails cruise is $2,874 per person double occupancy including round-trip airfare from any one of 26 US and Canadian city airports. Wineries for the 25th cruise season were selected for their high-scores in US wine publications and include such brandicons as Chateau Montelena, Pahlmeyer, Rochioli, Joseph Phelps Vineyards, Hess, Siduri and Ponzi Vineyards. More information on Food & Wine Trails 25th year cruise series can be found at www.foodandwinetrails.com/cruises or by calling 1-800-367-5348 to speak to a travel consultant or to order the company's complementary, 12-page color newsletter.

PRAGER WINERY AND PORT WORKS Tastings by appointment from 10:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. daily 1281 Lewelling Lane in St. Helena. (707) 963-7678 | www.pragerport.com.

When visiting Napa Valley, not many people think about Port Wine but whenever I’m in St. Helena, my trip isn’t complete without a visit to Prager Winery and Port Works. Located right off Highway 29, this family owned and operated winery has been hand-crafting various styles of Port since their first harvest in 1979. Founded by Jim and Imogene Prager, the winery’s first vintage included Chardonnay, Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, and a Cabernet Port. Their children now handle all the winery’s operations but Imogene still makes her caramelized walnuts as the perfect complement to their port wine. Their tasting room is quaint and it reminds me of being home sipping wine with my family and friends. Wine tastings are $20 for a flight of five premium ports and wines and they are currently offering two table wines and six different ports and you get to keep your glass! While they do produce some ports in an old world vintage style, they have taken a classic and made it modern and a little edgier. Their port wines can be enjoyed now and aren’t cloyingly sweet and over the top but still possess ample liveliness. Think charcuterie and chocolate and add a little port! Their flagship port is the Royal Escort and in special years a Royal Escort Vintage Port. This port is made with 100% Petite Sirah grapes from the Paladini Vineyard in St. Helena and happens to be my favorite port they produce. The Noble Companion 10 year old Tawny Port is made from the 2001 vintage of Cabernet Sauvignon and has a golden-orange hue with hints of light caramel, plum and a rich creamy texture with candied orange peel and walnut. For those who seek out the rare and unusual they produce two white ports; the Aria and Alyssa Golden Dry Port that will pair perfectly with summer seafood dishes. Prager Winery also produces a Petite Sirah wine that is made from the Paladini Vineyard grapes. This is a full bodied red that is beautifully balanced with a silky smooth finish and is a steal at $22. They also offer Chocolate Port Drizzle and Port filled boxed chocolates both made with their Prager Port by Anette’s Chocolates in Napa. Or, try any of their three vinegars as they make a great marinade for flat iron steak or a lightly dressed salad. The Prager Winery and Port Works tasting room is open daily from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Usually, you will find a family member pouring in the tasting room and I always appreciate their conversation and education they happily provide. All port, wine and gift items are available exclusively in their tasting room or online at www.pragerport.com.

Masterful glass techniques such as mouth blown, lampworking, cast, cold worked and fused glass are always on display at the gallery, in forms such as vases, bowls and sculpture. Specialty pieces like perfume bottles (they have the largest collection of hand-blown perfume bottles in Northern California), stemware and paperweights are also available. A carefully chosen number of ceramic artists have been selected to accompany the glasswork and most recently original fine art paintings are being displayed. In all, it makes for a unique and memorable destination. Like everything involving RASgalleries, they are of the highest quality and reflect the fine

Three generations of the deLeuze family in ZD Wines’ cellar: Jill deLeuze Billeci, Brandon deLeuze, Rosa Lee deLeuze, Robert deLeuze and Brett deLeuze

Zd WiNeS
A Unique Vantage Point Into the Napa Valley
With a history built upon more than four decades of winemaking, ZD Wines is rightfully known as one of California’s premier Chardonnay producers. Back in 1969, ZD was founded by aerospace engineers Norman deLeuze and Gino Zepponi. Today, three generations of the deLeuze family and the growing ZD staff welcome guests daily who have traveled to the Rutherford winery from around the world – for a taste of ZD’s award-winning wines. Over the years, the winery has received particularly significant recognition for its Chardonnays, which have been produced since 1972. In 1983, President Ronald Reagan served 1981 ZD Chardonnay at a state dinner for the Summit of Industrial Nations. The official memo sent out afterward noted that the ZD Wines Chardonnay “stole the show.” Since then, ZD Chardonnay has continued to grace the tables of U.S. presidents and their guests. ZD Wines also garnered international recognition in 1985, when its 1982 Chardonnay won the Decanter Award for Best Chardonnay at the International Wine & Spirits Competition in London. Most recently, ZD’s current release of 2011 Chardonnay earned Gold Medal/Best in Class at the San Diego International Wine Competition, Gold Medal at the Tasters Guild International Wine Judging and Gold Medal at the Dallas Morning News Wine Competition. The limited production 2011 Reserve Chardonnay – sourced entirely from ZD’s organic Carneros Estate vineyard – has also received recognition from wine writers and competitions. California Grapevine Magazine awarded ZD’s 2011 Reserve Chardonnay 91 points, and it also earned a Double Gold Medal at the Tasters Guild International Wine Judging. Both current release ZD Chardonnays are available for

sale at the winery and on ZD’s website at zdwines.com. ZD Wines offers several tasting experiences and tours at the winery. Guests can explore the organic Rutherford Estate vineyard during the Eco Tour. From the Vineyard View Room, they can take in ZD’s expansive landscape while indulging in expert pairings of cheese and award winning wines. The Library Selection Tour allows guests to discover vintage Chardonnay as it begins to show the essence of its varietal with wonderful tones of vanilla, pear and honey. Acidity continues to integrate into the wine more each year, balancing the lush palate with ripe apricot and sweet, toasty oak as the complexity of ZD Chardonnay continues to develop. While ZD Wines’ flagship wine is Chardonnay, it is also well known for world-class Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon, along with additional varietals through the Rosa Lee’s Whim limited releases. These small production offerings, selected annually by Norman’s wife and first generation ZD owner Rosa Lee deLeuze, have ranged from Barbera to Pinot Grigio to Malbec. This year’s Rosa Lee selection is 2012 ZD Semillon, a perfect summer white. There are only a handful of small, family-operated wineries in the Napa Valley, and ZD Wines is one of them. This winery offers guests an intimate vantage point into the Napa Valley experience with each and every visit.

Saturday, August 17: dave Koz and Friends Summer Horns Tour – with mindi Abair, Gerald Albright & richard elliot
Eight-time GRAMMY nominee and saxophonist extraordinaire Dave Koz typically spends every summer on the road, bringing a stellar group of musician friends along with him. This summer he’s assembled an all-star lineup of saxophonists: Mindi Abair, Gerald Albright and Richard Elliot. Tickets: VIP $90 / GA $60

Sunday, September 1: B.B. King
His reign as King of the Blues has been as long as that of any monarch on earth. Yet B.B. King continues to wear his crown well. At age 87, he is still light on his feet, singing and playing the blues with relentless passion. Time has no apparent effect on B.B., other than to make him more popular, more cherished, more relevant than ever. Don’t look for him in some kind of semi-retirement; look for him out on the road, playing for people, popping up in a myriad of T.V. commercials, or laying down tracks for his next album. B.B. King is as alive as the music he plays, and a grateful world can’t get enough of him. B.B. continues to tour extensively, averaging over 250 concerts per year around the world. Classics such as “The Thrill Is Gone,” “How Blue Can You Get,” and “Everyday I Have The Blues” are concert (and fan) staples. Tickets: VIP $115 / GA $75

SONOMA WINE COUNTRY WEEKEND
Celebrate Sonoma Wine, Food and Lifestyle at Sonoma County’s Largest and Most Fun Charitable Fundraiser, August 30-September 1
Wine country enthusiasts, as well as Sonoma County locals, can plan to indulge in world-class wine, food and festivities during Sonoma Wine Country Weekend. The event will raise funds for a wide array of Sonoma County non-profits over Labor Day Weekend August 30 through September 1. Sonoma Wine Country Weekend, the premier wine and epicurean event that showcases the birthplace of California wine, is presented by Visa Signature®. Produced in partnership by the Sonoma Valley Vintners & Growers Alliance and the Sonoma County Vintners, the 2013 Sonoma Wine Country Weekend event features Taste of Sonoma at MacMurray Ranch®, Sonoma Harvest Wine Auction at Chateau St. Jean, Sonoma Starlight at Francis Ford Coppola Winery, and an assortment of intimate and exclusive winery lunch and dinner parties at multiple locations throughout Sonoma County. “We are planning a vibrant and highly entertaining event that features a cast of hundreds of wineries, vintners, grape growers, chefs and volunteers who work hard to represent the best of our incredibly diverse and bountiful region,” said Maureen Cottingham, Sonoma Wine Country Weekend Co-Director. “All Sonoma Wine Country Weekend event tickets are on sale. With the popularity of our Labor Day Weekend event, we anticipate that events will sell out quickly, so we encourage visitors and locals alike to purchase early.” (Locals are Sonoma County residents that may be eligible for special pricing while supplies last). “At Sonoma Wine Country Weekend, we are all neighbors supporting our kids and our community. It is always gratifying to see our vintners and culinary world come together, and ultimately make the most important task of the weekend, the critical fundraising supporting dozens of vital Sonoma County non-profits, a reality,” said Honore Comfort, Sonoma Wine Country Weekend Co-Director. The 2013 Sonoma Wine Country Weekend Honorary Co-Chairs are Sonoma County vintner leaders The Gallo Family as the Winery Co-Chairs and grower Phil Coturri, Enterprise Vineyards, as the Grower Co-Chair. Culinary community leader Sondra Bernstein, proprietor of the girl & the fig, is the Culinary Chair and Bruce Riezenman of Park Avenue Catering returns as the Culinary Director. Sonoma County’s largest and most fun charitable fundraising event generates almost $2 million, supporting the local economy and non-profits each year. Proceeds from Sonoma Wine Country Weekend support Sonoma County non-profit organizations that serve youth, preserve the environment, and improve the health and welfare of local communities. To date a cumulative total of more than $11 million has been donated directly to Sonoma non-profits by the local wine community. The Locals Discount Tickets are available while supplies last for Sonoma County residents only. Locals tickets to Taste of Sonoma at MacMurray Ranch® are $85 ($165 for the general public). To obtain the special “locals” pricing, residents of Sonoma County can go to www.SonomaWineCountryWeekend.com and use the promotion code “LOCALS” and their Sonoma County zip code at checkout. A maximum of four specially-priced tickets is allowed per address.

This historic strip, located about an hour north of San Francisco, is shining much brighter these days, due in large part to Cellars of Sonoma, arguably the hippest tasting room (and wine bar by night) in Sonoma County. I’m giving away my age here, but let me just say that if I lived in Santa Rosa, Cellars of Sonoma would be my hangout. There are many reasons why this is so – let’s start with the building, which was originally constructed in 1909. The lovingly restored vintage back bar (the oldest bar in Sonoma County), brick walls, hardwood floors and high ceilings practically ooze history. Take this vintage charm and mix in a splash of contemporary chic, using a modern tasting bar, leather barstools, comfy leather furniture and a big screen TV and voila! That’s the vibe at Cellars of Sonoma. There is a lot of exciting stuff going on here – live music from top local talent is featured Thursday – Saturday, a live wine tasting broadcast where folks at home can taste along with the in-crowd at the bar happens every Tuesday night, the friendly, knowledgeable staff provides unbeatable concierge service and an amazing array of delicious, small production wines are poured daily. The wines of Cellars of Sonoma deserve their own paragraph, so here we go – eight micro wineries (2000 case production maximum) share the space and their wines are offered in flight format. Flights may be pre-set or customized, according to your taste. Food and wine pairings are available by appointment and cost $25. Happy hour is from 4 to 7 p.m. daily – house wines are $5 per glass and plates of cheese and chocolate (also $5) are offered to pair with the wines. Here’s something really great – you can bring in food from the fabulous restaurants of Railroad Square to enjoy with your wines! On a busy Friday or Saturday night, when you’d normally end up waiting for a table, you can place your order, then relax and savor your meal with a fabulous bottle (or glass, or flight) of wine.

Barrel & Bottle Summer Barrel Tasting, August 17
Eighth Street Wineries Sonoma announces their first Barrel event – Saturday August 17 from noon to 4 p.m.! Join Sonoma’s exclusive boutique and artisan wineries as they roll up the warehouse doors and welcome you to Barrel & Bottle: A Summer Barrel Tasting, hosted by Eighth Street Wineries Sonoma. Located off the beaten path yet just five minutes from Sonoma Plaza, this is a unique opportunity to visit these nine wineries in one stop! As you stroll among the barrels, glass in hand, and sample mouthwatering treats by various chefs, you’re likely to meet the winemakers themselves, a rare connection, as many of these ‘special gem’ wineries are typically closed to the public. Taste wines in the barrel just before bottling, enjoy small-batch wines and hard-to-find wines: a special occasion for any wine lover! “This event is an opportunity for winemakers to share their wine directly from the barrel and discuss, in greater depth, processes and philosophies in making hand crafted wines,” said Enkidu winemaker Phillip Staehle. “Tasting wine while still in barrel strengthens the connection for the taster between the winemaking process and the finished wine.” Admission is $40 in advance per person, $45 at the door, which includes a souvenir wine glass and access to event tastings at all participating wineries. Designated Driver passes are $10. Advance ticket purchase is recommended, as tickets are limited. Tickets and detailed information may be obtained online at www.eighthstreetwineries.com or by calling (707) 939-3930. Participating wineries are Anaba Wines, Enkidu Wines, MacRostie Winery and Vineyards, Parmelee-Hill Vineyards, Patz & Hall, Stone Edge Farm, Three Sticks Wines, Tin Barn Vineyards and Ty Caton Vineyards.

Red & White Ball 2013
The Biggest Plaza dance Party of the Year – Saturday, August 24
The Sonoma Valley Education Foundation is thrilled to host the very popular and highly anticipated Red & White Ball 2013 in support of the public schools of Sonoma Valley. Saturday, August 24th from 6 to 11 p.m. Dave Martin’s House Party Band will perform for the first time right in front of City Hall as the party moves to the much sought after south side of the Sonoma Plaza, for the dance party of the year. The event will also feature delectable food including treats from the Sonoma Valley School Gardens and exquisite Sonoma Valley wines. The winning raffle ticket for the white FIAT 500C POP Cabrio, with a red convertible top, will be drawn at this year’s event. All proceeds from the Red & White Ball will be invested in local schools. The event sold-out last year. Get your tickets now at http://svgreatschools.org/red-white-ball-tickets.html. “Our community is helping to fund vital programs in our schools such as critical Smart Start: Preschool For All, Summer Reading Academy, Algebra Boot Camp, Freshman Teams and Exploratorium Science. We are on a mission to make an even more significant impact next year, and we hope everyone will join in!” enthused SVED Executive Director Laura Zimmerman. Ticket reservations are required for entrance and there are three tiers of tickets for those looking to join the celebrations. Everyone who attends the Red & White Ball will need to purchase tickets in order to be a part of the festivities. If last year is any indicator, the popular VIP Farm to Table Dinner is a real “party within the party” at $150 per person. It includes an extravagant farm to table feast including all locally produced food, with some specially grown treats from the Sonoma Valley School Garden Project, plus the finest wines Sonoma Valley has to offer.

Sonoma’s Ledson Hotel Celebrates Ten Spectacular Years!
Fifth generation winemaker, master craftsman, and philanthropist Steve Ledson is thrilled to celebrate the 10th anniversary (August 20) of the esteemed and critically acclaimed Ledson Hotel, located on Sonoma’s historic downtown plaza. Standing like the crown jewel in the center of town, the Ledson Hotel invites guests to step back in time to a grander era. Meticulously designed and built by owner Steve Ledson, the hotel is near world-class shopping, spas, restaurants and rich California history. Steve has long believed Sonoma is one of the best towns in California to visit that has kept its old historical character. In fact, the town hasn’t changed much since his grandfather used to walk the square. To help celebrate this anniversary, Steve would like to invite guests to visit the Ledson Hotel and Centre du Vin Bistro during the month of August and he will donate a portion of the proceeds to local charities. Some of the things Steve has donated include a barrier-free playground in Sonoma or helping families take their terminally ill children on their dream vacations. Built to fit into Sonoma’s historic character Condé Nast Traveler noted, “From the inlaid-walnut floors to the ornate dentil molding, every painstaking detail recalls the era of Edith Wharton. Hotel owner Steve Ledson – known locally for the lavish 16,000-square-foot Gothic Castle he designed and built for his winery’s headquarters – cut no corners in this six-room inn.” The hotel’s Centre du Vin offers French bistro fare with a seasonal menu focused on dishes created from a variety of locally grown and produced specialties. Sidewalk seating allows dining al fresco with a full view of the bustling Sonoma Plaza. Guests can enjoy a full bar and a selection of Ledson and Zina Hyde Cunningham wines as well as other selections from local Sonoma Valley wineries. The Ledson Hotel and Centre Du Vin are located at 480 First Street East, Sonoma. For more information, go to www.ledsonhotel.com or call (707) 996-9779.

Yorkville Highlands Hosts Eleventh Annual Highlands Wine Festival at Meyer Family Cellars, August 10
Continuing a long-standing tradition, the Yorkville Highlands Wine Festival will again be hosted at Meyer Family Cellars, located near mile marker 34.2 just shy of Boonville on scenic Highway 128 from 1:00 pm until 5:00 pm on August 10, 2013. Anyone seeking an adventure filled with great food, wine and music – whether a wine lover or a family just wanting to get away – is invited to attend this fun-filled day in the picturesque Yorkville Highland’s rolling hills. Highlights will include tasting over 60 local wines made and grown within the region, live music, sumptuous food including assorted paella dishes, a tempting silent auction, grape stomp and other wild and wacky games for all ages. There is also the traditional Highlands Fire Hose Signing where festival goers are encouraged to sign their name or write a special message on a 100 foot fire hose as a statement of gratitude to those who risk their lives battling the annual blazes in California. Proceeds go to support the local fire department. In addition to the delicious array of award-winning wines, many of the winemakers will be present to share their insight, tips and techniques for producing some of California’s most exciting wines. What wine festival would be complete without patrons being able to go home with incredibly good wines at incredibly good prices? The annual silent auction hosts some of the most extraordinary wines of the area as well as options to snag vacation retreats, beautifully turned one-of-a-kind wooden bowls, a personal tour in a private nature reserve with catered lunch, a flyover of the wine country and so much more – over 75 items to win. With past sold out attendance, festival fans should order their tickets in advance. Tickets are $45; $30 for designated drivers as well as children 13 to 18 and children 12 and under are admitted for free. For information or tickets, visit www.yorkvillehighlands.org. or www.facebook.com/YorkvilleHighlands or call (707) 895-2341. Proceeds benefit the local communities in which the Highlands reside. Located in southern Mendocino County just two hours north of San Francisco, the wineries and vineyards of the Yorkville Highlands produce wines as varied and intriguing as its landscape. Today, 12% of the appellation’s grapes produced are for white wines with the dominant varietals being Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay. Eighty eight percent of the grapes are for red wines with the dominant varietals being Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Pinot Noir, Merlot and Zinfandel.

The ranch’s Birthday Celebration will benefit the Alzheimer’s Association
Holman Ranch will be celebrating its birthday on Thursday, September 26th, from 6 to 9 p.m. with its annual Fiesta del los Amigos and a benefit for the Alzheimer’s Association. The Fiesta de los Amigos is a part of Holman Ranch’s history! The popular Fiesta de los Amigos began in 1928 as the Ranch’s birthday celebration and was an annual highlight, often attracting more than 2,000 guests. In the 1960s-1980s, the Ranch was known for its rodeos and horse shows, daily trail rides, barbecues and fiestas filled the calendar. This year, the celebration will be filled with flavorful food truck delights, Holman Ranch estate wines to sip, lively entertainment to enjoy and more! Capture the moment of the Fiesta in the photo booth or head to the game tent and enjoy games for the entire family. In addition, attendees can sign up to support the Holman Ranch Walk to End Alzheimer’s team. The walk will be held on October 12th and depart from Custom House Plaza in Monterey. Attendees can sign up to join the team or pledge their support! The event will cost $50 per person or wine club members get two free tickets and all additional wine club member tickets are $35 per person. If the event is not sold out, tickets will be available at the door for $60 per person. Five dollars from each ticket sale will be donated to the Alzheimer’s Association. Reservations are required. RSVP by September 20th to (831) 659-2640. Upon confirmation by Holman Ranch of your RSVP , you will be provided a gate pass to Holman Ranch.

‘Concert in the Park’ Brings Live Music to Downtown Pleasanton
The Pleasanton Downtown Association’s (PDA) popular Concert in the Park series takes place every Friday night through August 30, featuring an eclectic mix of music from rock, blues and big band to ’50s and ’60s oldies, soul and Latin rock. The free concerts run from 7 to 8:30 p.m. and take place at Lions Wayside Park, on the corner of First Street and Neal Street. Patrons are encouraged to pick up dinner “to go” from one of Downtown Pleasanton’s many restaurants and bring it with them to the park. While guests are allowed to put out blankets and chairs (at their own risk) in Lions Wayside and Delucchi Parks, they are asked to wait until the morning of the concert to do so. Also, the use of plastic tarps, which can burn the grass, is not allowed.

Upcoming Concerts:
• August 9 – Burton & Co. – Jazzy rhythm and blues Sponsored by New Leaf Market • August 16 – Synaptic Gap – Modern rock hits Sponsored by the Pleasanton Weekly • August 23 – Magic Moments – Hits of the ’50s and ’60s Sponsored by SafeAmerica Credit Union Contact the Pleasanton Downtown Association, (925) 484-2199 or www.pleasantondowntown.net for more information.
