INTELLIGENCE FOR THE WINE CONSUMER
BY LEN NAPOLITANO

What wines go best with Thanksgiving dinner?
Thanksgiving dinner poses an interesting dilemma for the winepairing enthusiast. Does the wide variety of flavors from the multitude of side dishes like potatoes, vegetables, stuffing, gravy and cranberries – along with the turkey – make it impossible to pick one wine that complements everything, or do they just offer more opportunities to get at least one of them to match perfectly? This bombardment of flavors is the reason Thanksgiving dinner is not the occasion to serve a wine of great finesse. So, forget about that great vintage Bordeaux or delicate California Pinot Noir. Too many of these side dishes, not to mention a flavorful roasted turkey, will just overpower these nuanced wines. My approach to choosing wine for Thanksgiving is to go for the big red wine. What’s more, I like to stick with an American wine to go along with this all-American holiday. After smothering your plate with big food, you need a big wine to follow up. Here’s where a big red Zinfandel from Sonoma or Syrah from Paso Robles, among other fine California wine regions, comes to the rescue. The Zinfandel grape, commonly regarded as America’s grape, has many interesting, powerful, flavors that come through in the presence of an eclectic meal. Think of dark berries, spices and black pepper when considering Zinfandel. One word of caution when consuming a bolder-tasting wine: alcohol content is often equally big, sometimes as high as 18%, compared to typical wines with 13%-14%. The reason is partly out of necessity. The bigger the flavors in a wine, the more it has to be balanced on the palate with other components, like alcohol, tannin and acidity. It’s a good idea to also offer a white wine with Thanksgiving dinner. I suggest a dry Riesling for its versatility in pairing with many dishes and its ability to cleanse the palate with refreshing acidity. Riesling is made in both a dry and semi-sweet style, and this is not always stated on the label, so be sure to check with your wine retailer when selecting it.

BY JOSH STEIN

Is a Barrel by Another Name as Oaky?
Were Master Shakespeare to have included a winemaker in one of his plays, the famous phrase might have become “To oak or not to oak? That is the question,” and that would have been a spot on assessment, for few things bring on more questions, anxieties and myths than the discussion of oak usage and winemaking. Were they able to offer comment themselves, I imagine a towering oak offering something along the lines of “Chill out and just enjoy” because, as with many other aspects of winegrowing, the discussions tend to complicate and obscure the reality from the winemaker’s perspective. For whites, the decisions come down to the degree, if any, of oak influence. Many white varieties do not benefit from oak exposure, and even “neutral” barrels (barrels used long enough that oak tannin is no longer perceptible in wines stored therein) can cause a stylistic miscue since barrels play host to Oenococcus oeni, the bacteria responsible for malic-to-lactic acid conversion. Unless extraordinary and expensive precautions are taken, most winemakers would combine separate lots of filtered oaked and unoaked whites to arrive at a blend with the desired level of oak influence rather than hoping to arrive at an ideal middle through chance in the barrel. Red wines, though, present a bit of a different set of options. Oak is useful throughout the production process, so some folks will be using toasted or untoasted oak shavings at the crusher in cooler harvests to alleviate any underripe “green” aromatics or flavor compounds from methoxypyrazines, which contribute cigar or tobacco at low levels and green pepper or grassy, herb-y notes at higher levels. Winemakers can ferment in barrels either by removing the heads and punching down into upright barrels or through reassembling the barrels and using a rotation system to keep the cap wet by spinning. They can use larger puncheons to give more subtle, “rounder” notes to the wine without giving as “oaky” a presence – liquid volume to surface area matters a lot; the larger the vessel, the less the influence, everything else being equal. Post-pressing, most reds are aged either in barrel or in tanks with some kind of oak adjunct inserted; as with barrel options so go the adjuncts: winemakers have choices that range from oak source (American, French, Hungarian, blends and beyond), to toast level, to toasted or untoasted heads in barrels, and a slew of options for creating oak effects sans barrels including “beans,” cubes, spirals, blocks, sticks-in-chains to fit into barrel bungholes, and staves of various shapes and sizes for tank inserts. Think back to your first visit to a big toystore as a kid; now picture an adult kid and you know how winemakers feel about their oak options. It’s great to have choices, but there are lots of options, and one is not necessarily “better” than another. At the end of the day, oak is like every other part of the winemaking process: a series of decisions through which the final wine is realized, and the key thing winemakers must come to terms with in order to do their best work is that making a particular decision, or refusing to make it, will have an impact on that final bottling either way. Winemakers grow and “cook” with grapes, and once the process starts, the vessel in which the fermentation takes place absolutely has an impact – but you must start with the best ingredients possible. Just like cooking. Enjoy!

Gloria Ferrer Caves & Vineyards
BY MIKE HYLAND

Conveniently located at the gateway to the Sonoma Valley on Highway 121, Gloria Ferrer Caves & Vineyards should be everyone’s first (or last) stop in wine country. What better way to begin a day of wine tasting than with a glass or at least a taste of award-winning sparkling wine. With sweeping views of acres of vine-covered rolling hills, there is no better spot to begin a wine tasting journey. Just within the last five years, Gloria Ferrer has racked more than 400 gold medals and had more than 30 different wines receive point ratings of 90 or above. Additionally, they were just named one of the Top 100 Wineries for the year 2013 by Wine & Spirits Magazine; Gloria Ferrer also just received word that their Extra Virgin Olive Oil has received a Double Gold medal award from the 2013 Sonoma Harvest Fair. The olive oil is produced from Catalan and Tuscan olives grown on their Carneros estate. The olives are hand-harvested from some 475 trees to create a smooth, fruity blend with intense flavor, a perfect taste on bread, appetizers, pasta and grilled dishes. The first sparkling house in California’s renowned Carneros region, Gloria Ferrer Caves & Vineyards was established in 1986 by the Ferrer family. All of the wines embody winegrowing history, time-honored tradition and century’s old winemaking practices in creating exceptional sparkling and estate varietal wines blended to pair perfectly with food. The Ferrer family’s culture of generosity is expressed in their commitment to creating premium, affordable wines for everyone to enjoy.

Open Daily 10 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. 23555 Carneros Hwy (121), Sonoma, CA 95476 707-933-1917 | www.gloriaferrer.com For reservations or additional information about these events and others, including various tours, call (707) 933-1931 or email special.events@gloriaferrer.com.

Private And Corporate Events Gloria Ferrer annually hosts a variety of private and corporate events. While the location is tucked into a Sonoma hillside above scenic rolling vineyards and contains a charm reminiscent of Old Spain, Gloria Ferrer is an ideal setting for special occasions such as corporate events, anniversaries, birthdays, rehearsal dinners, holiday parties or any type of function that comes to mind. Available for private events from 6:30 to 10:30 p.m., the Sala de Catadores (Hall of Tasters) can accommodate dinner parties of up to 120

guests. During the day, private events from up to 40 guests can be accommodated in either the cave or the Vineyard View Arbor. During the past few years, many corporate clients have utilized a variety of team building activities that were created by the Gloria Ferrer team. Forget about the old corporate ways. How about building your team via traditional winemaking or Spanish events? Their events team will customize a program to fit your goal and budget. Your teambuilding outing will not only be fun, but in some cases tasty, too (pun intended). Holiday Events Kick off the Sonoma coast Dungeness Crab season this year at Gloria Ferrer’s inaugural Holiday Crab Feed. Similar to their very popular wine club-exclusive Lobster Feed that takes place in March of each year, the first Holiday Crab Feed is open to the public with special pricing for wine club members. The event takes place on Saturday, December 7 from 6:30 to 10 p.m. and includes plenty of fresh crab, mussels, clams, shrimp, corn, artichokes and potatoes, while sipping on award-winning wines in the cave. If you are a fresh seafood lover, this is the place you want to be in December. Tickets are $117.50 per person and $100 per person for wine club members. Keeping up with tradition is a big part of the Gloria Ferrer family history. To that end, “Three Kings Day” will take place on Sunday, January 5, 2014 from 4 to 5 p.m. For more than 20 years, Gloria Ferrer has staged this performance of the Epiphany to celebrate the Spanish tradition, “El Dia de los Reyes Magos,” or “Three Kings Day.” Sip on a glass of sparkling wine followed by a sampling of traditional Spanish Holiday Rosca bread and hot chocolate. Tickets are $15 per person and $12.75 for wine club members. Children under 12 are free.

Bennett Lane Winery Offers a Feast for the Senses this Thanksgiving
Located just north of downtown Calistoga, family-owned Bennett Lane Winery’s friendly and casual tasting room is one wine country destination worth the drive north. The winery caters to all of the senses, offering guests one of the premier tasting experiences in the valley, and offers the perfect slice of fall as harvest at the winery comes to a close. Bennett Lane’s tasting room has become known as the friendliest tasting room in the valley and this fall they are proud to share two incredible tasting options, sure to please everyone from the wine beginner to the true Cabernet collector. Their signature $15 flight buys guests tastes of four of Bennett Lane’s wines, the Chardonnay, the Maximus Red Feasting Wine blend, a library release of their 2006 Merlot and their 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon. In addition they are offering their Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon flight for $40 person. This tasting flight includes a sample of the highly rated 2006 and 2008 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, and their single-vineyard Estate Lynch Family Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon. With only 99 cases of this Calistoga AVA wine and a rating of 92 points in Wine Enthusiast, it is a rare treat. Don’t miss this stop – it is fast becoming the “must-see” destination for wine lovers visiting the Napa Valley. The Maximus “feasting wine” blends are the perfect for the top feast of the year: Thanksgiving. The red “feasting wine” blend has had wine lovers flocking to Bennett Lane’s tasting room since its inception. The current release 2008 Maximus Red Feasting Wines is being hailed as the best deal in the valley – and was awarded 94 points in Wine Enthusiast. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah, this wine will please all of your guests this holiday season. According to Bennett Lane owner Randy Lynch, “Our goal at Bennett Lane is to make wines of outstanding quality year after year,” he says. “We make every effort to use only the finest fruit and bring it to fruition in the bottle through meticulous winemaking.” In addition to the red blend, they also produce “White Maximus,” a Sauvignon Blanc blend with a touch of Chardonnay. This aromatic white is the perfect partner to all of your holiday meals. For the more ambitious Napa-goer, Bennett Lane offers exclusive flight packages in their own hot air balloon. The first winery branded hot-air balloon of its kind in the valley, the Bennett Lane Winery balloon was launched for the first time this fall. “Who doesn’t love a hot-air balloon? We are thrilled to be able to offer our guests a unique way to experience Napa Valley, with our signature Bennett Lane Winery brand of hospitality,” said Bennett Lane Winery owner Randy Lynch. Bennett Lane Winery has partnered with Calistoga Balloons to offer standard and private flight packages for guests who would like to experience the thrill of riding in their hot air balloon. Private flights in the balloon are available in either, two, four or six person options and include a limousine pickup from an up-valley hotel prior to launch, a Bennett Lane flight jacket, and brunch in Calistoga. Also

included in this package is a private reserve tasting at Bennett Lane Winery following the flight. The prices for this package are $1999, $2399 and $2899 for two, four and six people respectively. A standard flight with a group in the hot air balloon includes a Bennett Lane flight hat, brunch in Calistoga and a tour and tasting at Bennett Lane that includes a picnic lunch. Transportation to and from the launch site is provided; guests must provide their own transportation to the winery. This package is priced per individual and costs $339 per guest. Bennett Lane Winery is located at 3340 Highway 128, approximately two miles north of Calistoga, and is open by appointment from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. for tastings and tours.

Rare Vertical Tasting of Cabernet Sauvignon at Tedeschi Family Winery
Tedeschi Family Winery is sharing samples of 2004, ’05, ’06 and ’07 Cabernet Sauvignon made from their dry-farmed estate vineyard in Calistoga. Three generations of the Tedeschi family have been farming the land in Napa Valley since owner, Emil Tedeschi’s grandparents first emigrated from Pisa, Italy, and fell in love with the same Calistoga site back in 1919. Early on, they recognized the exceptional terroir in everything they planted – especially wine grapes. In tradition of the old country, they planted their first grapes amongst orchards of walnuts, figs, peaches and pomegranates. In 1991, Emil set out to transform this rich land to single vineyard, estate and dry-farmed Cabernet Sauvignon.

ANDRETTI WINERY
The Holiday Season Done Right on Big Ranch Road!
BY JOSH STEIN

ANDRETTI WINERY Open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. 4162 Big Ranch Rd, Napa, CA 94558 (707) 259-6777 | andrettiwinery.com

People talk about Highway 29 and the “less travelled” Silverado Trail, but true insiders know there’s a special five miles of road that run north out of the city of Napa, parallel to both aforenamed better-known cousins, but unseen from either, and on this patch awaits a bit of Italy and a range of wines made for food and good times. Andretti Winery is minutes from the city, but you’ve got to know where to look to find it – which makes the arrival all the better! Founded in 1996 when legendary race car driver Mario Andretti and his friend, Joseph Antonini, former Chairman, President, and CEO of Kmart Corporation, brought their shared love of Mediterranean cuisine, lifestyles, and wines to the Napa Valley’s Oak Knoll District. Well-known winemaker Bob Pepi has been involved since the beginning in designing the winery to create the best expressions of food-friendly releases. The award-winning “Cal-Ital” wines have not disappointed, and given the wide range of wines Bob makes for Andretti Winery, there’s something for everyone. Naturally, with the chill in the air comes new wines and new ways to taste them. New releases for autumn include the 2011 Villa Barbera, 2011 Montona Cabernet Sauvignon, 2012 Montona Chardonnay and 2011 Montona Merlot. All are foodfriendly and begging for holiday meals. Equally, the winery is offering Two-for-One Barrel Tastings, which tastes through a line-up of releases in conjunction with a Pinot Noir barrel tasting. Complete your experience with a stroll around the estate, taking in the stunning views of the 42-acre vineyard and the Napa Valley. The Founders Tasting Experience provides a fully private tasting of reserve wines in either the Tuscan House or the Barrel Chai and pairs gourmet cheeses and breads with Cabernet, Chardonnay, Merlot, Pinot Grigio and a yummy Zinfandel port. Private tastings at the Tuscan House are accompanied by additional special treats. The holidays approaching are about giving, not just receiving. The folks at the winery

have put together a number of gift-ready options. There are twobottle gift packs where you decide which wines are included; wine and stocking stuffers, including a Cabernet and racingtheme stopper and a Chardonnay and aerator; and a very cool winery-only bamboo cutting board and wine combo. If you need more reasons to come visit, Andretti’s upcoming holiday events should do the trick. Saturday, December 7th, kicks things off with Holiday Shopping Night: from 5 to 8 p.m. there will be special prices, one-of-a-kind offers, Mario Andretti autographed bottles, great wines and hors d’oeuvres. Saturday, December 14th, continues the theme with the three-course Holiday Winemaker Dinner. Bob Pepi will be in-house to discuss the wines and enjoy the family-style meal from Napa’s Il Posto, and the wines poured will be available for purchase at special holiday pricing. Last but not least, January 10th and 24th once again bring the “L’Italia in Vigneto” Tuscan House Intimate Dinners, which feature threecourse meals prepared by Il Posto’s Josh Wheeler in combination with Bob Pepi-selected new bottlings and library favorites, as well as barrel tasting. Do yourself a favor and come visit the wine country you envision when you see the words “Napa Valley.” The more-thankind folks at Andretti Winery will be glad to see you and happy to pour a variety of wines in a setting which few know about even though it’s been there going on two decades. Slow down onto Big Ranch Road and come taste the fun – but only tell those who deserve to know; just buy wine and gifts for the rest. Salute!

I’ll head over to Costeaux French Bakery, for sure!
What’s your favorite on-the-go meal or food truck?

I like the taco trucks around Healdsburg … the one near the freeway on Lytton Springs Road is very good.
Where do you go for a fun day out with your family?

We head out on the lake with a picnic, and boat from spot to spot.

WCTW: At home, what’s your favorite go-to meal and bottle of wine? DW: At home, I like to make chicken curry when time is short, and pair it with a Wilson Winery Sawyer Zinfandel. WCTW: What’s an interesting fact that most people don’t know about you? DW: I used to drive a cherry-red 1959 MG-A up and down Hwy. 101, to the university in San Diego! Quite a ride! ABOUT: Ken and Diane Wilson own several boutique wineries offering exceptional wines, beautiful scenery and friendly, informative tasting room staff. A visit to their namesake Wilson Winery or any of their sister wineries located in Sonoma County offers guests a chance to taste highly acclaimed small-lot, single-vineyard wines. Known in the area for her amazing Zinfandels, Diane Wilson has branched out with different varietals for the new boutique wineries that they have purchased in the past few years. Adding new wines to her portfolio, she has had fun applying known techniques and learning new practices to accommodate their expansion.

RH: Rib eye carne asada with my home-made chile sauce crushed with the mortar and pestle with a bottle of Brenda’s Vineyard Cabernet.

About: Rolando Herrera has been the winemaker at Baldacci Family Vineyards since 2003. He has an intimate knowledge of Stags Leap wines and vineyards, having been involved with winemaking in this region for almost 20 years.

He truly believes that wines speak for themselves and, in addition to the Estate Cabernets, Rolando makes wines for the Family Collection utilizing grapes carefully sourced from unique vineyards in Napa and Sonoma. His passion also led him to create wines for his personal label, Mi Sueño.

Antonio Barrios
CHIEF CONCIERGE, THE ST. REGIS SAN FRANCISCO

Eric Edenfield
CHIEF CONCIERGE, KENWOOD INN AND SPA Member, Les Clefs d’Or, USA

Ellen Rudolph
MERITAGE RESORT AT NAPA

WCTW: If you were to visit just one winery, which would you choose and why? AB: I prefer smaller and family-run vineyards, but one winery that I would pick is Copain Wines. The winery is perched on a hill overlooking the serenely beautiful Russian River Valley. The staff is warm, welcoming and extremely knowledgeable. The Les Voisins Pinot Noir and the Les Voisins Syrah are expressive, sophisticated wine blends born from neighboring vineyards in the Anderson Valley and Yorkville Highlands. They are spectacular. WCTW: Where do you send guests that want to learn about wine? AB: Robert Mondavi WCTW: Where would you take friends to learn about and taste organic wines? AB: Definitely Benziger Family Vineyards … a great location for a picnic and awesome wines. WCTW: Tell us the best wineries to bring pets. AB: A great winery for that is Bella Vineyards and Wines Caves WCTW: Which winery has your favorite cave tour? AB: Jarvis WCTW: Describe the perfect day in wine country. AB: A perfect day for me would be to head to the Dry Creek Valley, hitting two of my favorite vineyards, Copain Wines and Dutcher Creek, then breaking for lunch at the Dry Creek Store. I would finish the day with another pit stop in the Alexander Valley at Meadlock Ames. WCTW: Which wineries have the best shopping for wine-related items? AB: I like Portalupi in Healdsburg.

WCTW: What’s the best wine country picnic spot? EE: Sonoma has an abundance of superb picnicfriendly wineries. One of my favorites is Hop Kiln Winery. Their grounds offer numerous tables placed around decorative ponds set in a breathtakingly beautiful garden. Their helpful staff can help with serving utensils as well as a nice array of food items. WCTW: Which winery has the best wine-related gifts for shopping? EE: Matanzas Creek is not only a beautiful winery, but it is also very well-known for growing lavender. Their gift area is filled with a wide array of wine-related products but moreover products using their lavender. WCTW: Where do you send guests that want to learn abut wine? EE: If a guest has never taken a winery tour before, I love to send them to Benziger, as I feel their tramway tour through the property is the best in all of wine country to illustrate the making of wine from grape to glass. However, if one of my guests is truly looking to educate themselves on all areas of wine, I love to send them to KendallJackson Wine Center. From production to taking a walk in their sensory gardens to experience firsthand what really goes into wine pairings and blending, KJ does it like no other and should not be missed. WCTW: Where is your favorite place to visit and taste organic wines? EE: Deerfield Ranch Winery is not only certified organic, they also produce “Clean Wine” which is a term used to signify the lowest level of histamines possible. No more red wine headaches! Their cave tasting room is a cozy place to sample wines, not to mention pet friendly as well.

ER: I prefer to give guests an array of choices that will not only introduce them to wine country, but also to the variety of the ambiance and culture. If they like sparkling wines, Domaine Chandon is beautiful and elegant. Hess and Jessup have wonderful wines and art galleries. Perhaps Mondavi for an amazing educational experience with their Signature Tour and Tasting, Grgich Hills for their wonderful buttery Chardonnay and Raymond for their organic red wines. If they haven’t had lunch, I suggest V. Sattui for the picnic experience. Possibly onto Beringer, with its variety of wines and beautiful floral-filled grounds. And then onto the “Castles of Calistoga.” I tell them about the amazing Castello di Amorosa, Chateau Montelena and Sterling. And finally, the great smaller wineries of the Spring Mountain area. I love Charbay, with its “mom & pop” feel and warm and friendly reception. It’s especially charming for the guests to be introduced to their array of fruit infused liquors. Then cross over and come down the Silverado Trail for the “Tuscany” experience. Frank Family, Rombauer, Mumm Napa and Silver Oak are all good choices for them to pick from. Further down the Trail is Darioush for that Persian flavor and Hagafen, which is one of the few Kosher wineries. The Carneros region is located within 15 minutes from the Meritage Resort. Artesa, Etude and Domaine Carneros are just a few of the choices that I get very positive feedback on. Of course, Napa is all about indulging in wine and food, so the conversation inevitably moves to dining suggestions. Here at the Meritage, we have a shuttle to take our guests to downtown Napa if they choose. Finding the right cuisine experience is as important as finding the right wine experience.

34

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

TASTING ROOM OF THE WEEK

WHITEHALL LANE
Distinctive Options Abound on Highway 29!
BY JOSH STEIN

WHITEHALL LANE WINERY Open daily from 10 a.m. to 5:45 p.m. 1563 St Helena Hwy, St Helena, CA 94574 (707) 963-9454 | www.whitehalllane.com

Can you imagine being serious enough to put an offer on the table for a winery on a Monday and owning it lock, stock, and barrel(s) a week later? That’s what happened as the modern legacy of Whitehall Lane began in 1993 when Tom Leonardini, Sr. purchased the property; in the two decades since, three of the family’s next generation have become daily involved, too, while the winery has grown from one modest estate vineyard to 140 acres and seven vineyards, and that growth hasn’t gone unnoticed. In Wine Spectator’s year-end ranking of wines, Whitehall Lane has been honored an unprecedented three times in five years for producing wines rated among the top five in the world. “This is not just a hobby. We’re committed to making superior wines” is what Tom said back in 1993, and it clearly still rings true today. Equally as distinctive as the wines is the winery itself, an architectural standout for decades and clearly visible on Highway 29. Inside its geometrical and color-filled façade, the winery produces a range of bottlings, including Cabernet and Reserve Cabernet, Chardonnay, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, several red and white dessert wines, and the “Tre Leoni” Cab/Merlot/Syrah blend, as well as “Leonardini Family Selection” bottlings of very special wines. Autumn, of course, calls forth new releases and special wines for the holidays, and Whitehall Lane doesn’t disappoint with November 1st bringing the release of the 2012 Las Brisas Vineyard Pinot Noir; not to be ignored, too: the tasting room is currently pouring a Reserve Cabernet vertical of the 2005, 2006 and 2007 Reserve Cabs. Options abound, too, for tasting, touring, and food pairing experiences. Current-release and reserve tastings are available throughout the day for six or less; call ahead for larger groups as they are happy to accommodate. Tours of the facilities and wine library paired with wines to taste are available several times daily. Equally, the Club Room presents exclusive access to panoramic vineyard views, winery-only releases, and Reserve Cabernet with food pairings: the Chocolate Experience, which pairs several chocolate bites; the Cheese Trail Experience, which offers selections from Bellwether Farms, Laura Chevel’s Chevre, Vella Cheese Company and Nicasio Valley Cheese Company; and the Cicchetti Experience, which offers a series of small chef-created bites. The Tuscaninspired garden, nestled within the estate vineyard, can also be reserved for picnics for small or large groups. As you can see, Whitehall Lane has found the perfect balance: lots of great wines, including a number only available directly from the winery, and lots of ways to enjoy those wines while visiting. There’s a reason so many people sing the winery’s praises. Stop on in the next time you’re on Highway 29 and taste what all the talk has been about for two decades and counting. You’ll be glad you did – enjoy!

Hanukkah Hootenanny – A Party Like No Other!
What do surf music, jelly donuts, brisket sliders and Napa wine all have in common? If you said, The 8th Annual Hanukkah Hootenanny on Sunday, December 8th from 12 to 2:30 p.m. at Judd’s Hill Winery, then you are a person in the know or an extremely lucky guesser. For nearly a decade, Judd’s Hill Winery and MicroCrush, located at the southern end of Napa’s Silverado Trail, has hosted this Hanukkah party like no other. As you would expect, the event features a wide variety of Judd’s Hill Wines, both current releases and library offerings. There will also be plenty of food, including the traditional food of the Hanukkah season, fresh hot latkes, decadent jelly donuts and delicious beef brisket (prepared as sliders). It’s right about here where this Hootenanny veers off into a different direction from your bubby’s Hanukkah celebrations of yore. As with any good party, Hanukkah or otherwise, having the right entertainment is key. Ever since their first Hanukkah Hootenanny, the folks at Judd’s Hill have welcomed the band, Meshugga Beach Party, to delight the crowd with traditional Jewish songs enthusiastically performed in an instrumental surf-rock style, a la Dick Dale. Dressed like rabbis, the guys execute synchronized dance moves and occasionally unfurl the “dead joke scrolls” to deliver ancient one-liners in the finest tradition of the Catskills. You may have caught the band’s act at Bay Area Jewish heritage festivals, the famous Bay to Breakers, and hipster havens like Lebowski Fest, Forbidden Island Tiki Lounge and the Hubba Hubba Burlesque Revue. If not, this is your chance at some serious Hava Nagila shenanigans. To get an idea of the hilarity that awaits you, check out their uproarious clips on YouTube. The party takes place on the winery’s covered crushpad, in full view of the adjoining Kairos Cabernet Sauvignon Vineyard. Traditional dreidels and gelt are provided for all. And, once the party really gets going, the family usually leads revelers in dancing the Hora, the traditional circular dance of celebration. Tickets are $50 per person, or free for wine club members. The Judd’s Hill Wine Club is free to join and you can find more information about it at www.juddshill.com. As you can see, this is a wonderful celebration, not to be missed. It is also an event that supports a great cause. A portion of ticket sales and proceeds from the day’s wine sales are donated to Napa Children’s Health Initiative, a non-profit corporation dedicated to achieving 100% healthcare coverage for all Napa County children. So eat, drink, dance and be merry! This event does sell out quickly, so call the winery today at (707) 255-2332 to make your reservation.

When Flavor! Napa Valley arrives November 20-24, heralded names in food such as Chiarello, Carbone, Choi, English, Forgione, Kostow, Morimoto, Pawlcyn, Reddington and Torrisi will share the stage with another superstar, Napa Valley wine. The wines that made the Napa Valley legendary will be woven throughout the five-day culinary festival with seminars, retrospective tastings, food pairings, and intimate winery and vineyard activities. “Wine is an integral part of our lifestyle here in the Napa Valley,” stated master sommelier and Flavor! presenter Andrea Robinson. “We are fortunate to have many of the world’s finest wineries here and participating in Flavor! Napa Valley. If you’re a fan of wine, you will love what we have in store during this five day celebration of the best in the culinary arts.” New and seasoned enthusiasts will delve into what makes Napa Valley vintages some of the most sought after wines at events such as the Exploring the Rutherford Appellation, Why You Like the Wines You Like, and the grandest tasting of the festival, The Appellation Trail. Seasoned enthusiasts can partake in the Wine Lovers Boot Camp or match wits with esteemed wine experts at the Top Taster™ event. Toss in exclusive retrospective tastings including a tenyear vertical tasting of Joseph Phelps Insignia, a tasting tribute to Robert Mondavi, 40 years of Cakebread Cellars and a retrospective of the wines of Louis M. Martini, and Flavor! delivers something for every palate. Other memorable wine-focused

events include a private tasting with wine legend Mike Grgich at Grgich Hills Estate, The New California Wine seminar and tasting with Jon Bonné of the San Francisco Chronicle, an exclusive tasting of wines featured at Premiere Napa Valley with wine journalist Alder Yarrow, Discovering the Diversity of Napa Valley wines with Dean & Deluca wine director Kerrin Laz, and the ever popular Dinner with Napa Valley Winemakers. Guiding attendees through the vintages and varietals are wine authorities such as master sommelier Andrea Robinson, master sommelier Larry Stone, master of wine Tim Hanni, Karen MacNeil, author of the award-winning book, The Wine Bible, and renowned winemakers such as Charles Krug Winery proprietor Peter Mondavi Sr., Stephanie Putnam of Raymond Vineyards, Danielle Cyrot of CADE Estate Winery, and Marcus Notaro of Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars. Flavor! Napa Valley wine events range from $100 to $1200 per person and are available at www.flavornapavalley.com. Flavor!

WINE COUNTRY NEWS | WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK

Third Annual Napa Valley Film Festival Announces This Year’s Line-Up of Must-See Star-Studded Films
Sneak Preview Screenings include Saving Mr. Banks, August: Osage County, The Immigrant and Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom
Napa Valley Film Festival (NVFF) Co-Founders and Directors Brenda and Marc Lhormer are proud to announce several of the festival’s star-studded headlining films, as well as the first set of honorees to be feted at the Celebrity Tribute Program, hosted by Access Hollywood’s Billy Bush. Showcasing the year’s best new independent films in 12 uniquely designed screening venues along with Napa Valley’s finest food, wine and hospitality, NVFF returns in full force with a five-day festival spanning Napa Valley’s four postcardperfect towns of Napa, Yountville, St. Helena and Calistoga, November 13-17. On Opening Night, Wednesday, November 13, the Festival will present August: Osage County, based on the award-winning play, and directed by John Wells, one of the most prolific writers, directors and producers for television, film and stage. The film stars the legendary Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts, as part of a dysfunctional family returning to their home in Oklahoma. Sam Shepard, Juliette Lewis, Ewan McGregor, Julianne Nicholson, Margo Martindale, Chris Cooper, Benedict Cumberbatch and Abigail Breslin round out the stellar supporting cast. Courtesy of The Weinstein Company. Two-time Academy Award® – winner Emma Thompson and fellow double Oscar® – winner Tom Hanks will “wow” audiences with a Gala Presentation, on Thursday, November 14, of Saving Mr. Banks, directed by John Lee Hancock and inspired by the extraordinary, untold backstory of the long road Disney’s classic Mary Poppins took to make it to the big screen. The terrific supporting cast includes Colin Farrell, Jason Schwartzman, Bradley Whitford, B.J. Novak, Rachel Griffith, Kathy Baker and Paul Giamatti. Courtesy of Walt Disney Studios. In addition to August: Osage County and Saving Mr. Banks, NVFF will unspool the following new films: The Immigrant: Directed by James Gray, this emotional film brings to life his obsession with social class, in particular the immigrant experience that relates to his Russian Jewish heritage. In search of a new start, Ewa Cybulski and her sister sail to New York from Poland. When they reach Ellis Island, doctors discover Magda is ill, and the two women are separated. Alone and desperate to unite with Madga, Ewa falls prey to Bruno, a charming but wicked man who forces her into prostitution. The arrival of Orlando the Magician restores her hopes for a brighter future. Starring Marion Cotillard, Joaquin Phoenix and Jeremy Renner. Courtesy of RADiUS – TWC. Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom: The Festival Closing Night Film, Sunday, November 17. Directed by British filmmaker Justin Chadwick, this powerful film depicts the tumultuous history of Nelson Mandela and his harrowing life journey from rural childhood to anti-apartheid crusader to President of South Africa. Starring Idris Elba (The Wire) and Naomie Harris (Pirates of the Caribbean; Skyfall). Courtesy of The Weinstein Company. Nebraska: Yet another remarkable film directed by Alexander Payne, Nebraska captures the effortless acting of an aging man (Bruce Dern) who is convinced he has won one million dollars and travels across two states with his estranged son (Will Forte) to claim his winnings. Payne captures real-life love and heartache through his breathtaking sceneries and script. Dern has already won the best acting prize at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival. Nebraska will screen as a Sneak Preview on Tuesday, November 12 at the Cameo Cinema in St. Helena. Courtesy of Paramount Pictures. One Chance: Starring James Corden, Alexandra Roach, Colm Meaney and Julie Walters, and produced by Simon Cowell, this is David Frankel’s sixth feature film. One Chance tells the remarkable true story of aspiring opera singer Paul Potts. Frankel’s previous work includes The Devil Wears Prada, starring Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway, Marley & Me, starring Owen Wilson and Jennifer Anniston, The Big Year, starring Jack Black, Steve Martin and Wilson, and Hope Springs, starring Streep, Tommy Lee Jones, and Steve Carell. Courtesy of The Weinstein Company. Philomena: The Festival is proud to screen Philomena as its Centerpiece Presentation. Celebrated Director Stephen Frears has always embraced a wide variety of styles, themes and genres. Philomena, based on the book The Lost Child Of Philomena Lee by BBC correspondent Martin Sixsmith, is the true story of an Irish woman who was taken in by nuns as a pregnant teenager. Condemned to a slavish life at the abbey, she is forced to give up her four-year-old boy to an American couple she never meets. Late in life, aided by a journalist, she sets out to find her son. Starring Dame Judi Dench and Steve Coogan (playing Sixsmith). Courtesy of The Weinstein Company. This year’s Celebrity Tribute Program on Friday, November 15 will be hosted by Access Hollywood’s Billy Bush who will take the stage at Lincoln Theatre in Yountville for the third year, and once again amuse and delight audiences while interviewing the talented honorees and sharing stories. Tribute Honorees, special events and the full film lineup for the third annual Napa Valley Film Festival is available online at NapaValleyFilmFest.org. Film Screening dates and times subject to change. For information or to buy passes, visit NapaValleyFilmFest.org or call (707) 226-7500.

TASTING ROOM OF THE WEEK

MARTIN RAY WINERY
BY DAWN MARIE CARLSON

Look for the historic Martin Ray Winery water tower and when you arrive, you will wander on the soils of California winemaking at the oldest winery in continuous operation in Sonoma County and one of the oldest wineries in the state. The original site, the Twin Fir Winery established originally in 1881, became the Martini and Prati Winery in 1902. Beginning a new era, Courtney Benham purchased the winery site in 2003 from the Martini family who ran it for five generations. He also purchased the Martin Ray wine library and trademark brand from the Ray family. Martin Ray was a protégé of French winemaker, Paul Masson and Ray first established 100% varietal wines in California, a tradition continued today at the winery. The antique tasting room structure was formerly a bunkhouse and stable for the Italian immigrant vineyard workers dating back to 1900s. Your friendly hosts will invite you to try different varietals and explain the winemaking techniques. Wine tasting is complimentary, although Reserve wine tastings are $5 per person. You will find unique gifts, purchase wine by the bottle/glass, and enjoy the lush and expansive picnic grounds, which are family and dog friendly. You will not want to miss the special wines featured at the winery now such as the Martin Ray Winery Mountain Appellation Reserve Cabernet Sauvignons and other exclusive wines. At the 2013 Sonoma County Harvest Fair, their Martin Ray 2012 Dry Rosé from 100% Russian River Pinot Noir won the Gold Medal, Best of Class, as well as their 2012 Angeline Russian River Sauvignon Blanc! Their 2011 Martin Ray Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon also won a Gold Medal.

Winemaker
Bill Batchelor joined Courtney Benham at the new Russian River Valley winery as Winemaker producing high quality, distinctive wines created from premium vineyards. The Winemaker sources grapes from hillside vineyards in Santa Cruz, Napa, Mendocino and Sonoma Counties. The winemaking team produces handcrafted Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir and proprietary reserve wines in small lots through the vision of Martin Ray. Today, the winery has new state-of-the-art presses, open-top fermenters, stainless steel tanks, crushers, laboratory equipment and winemaking equipment.

Award-winning Wines
The Wine Enthusiast awarded 93 points for the Martin Ray 2009 Napa Valley Synthesis and 91 points for the Martin Ray 2009 Reserve Diamond Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon, both in April 2013. Wine brands: Martin Ray Winery, Angeline Wines and Courtney Benham Wines. Wine library: Chardonnay, Rosé, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Synthesis and Cabernet Sauvignon. Purchase special wines for your holiday celebrations and share your winery adventure.

MARTIN RAY WINERY Open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. 2191 Laguna Road, Santa Rosa, CA 95401 (707) 823-2404 | www.martinraywinery.com

SONOMA COUNTY | WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK

Korbel Introduces Extraordinary Handcrafted California Brandy
Korbel Brandy is excited to introduce Korbel 12, a limited-edition California brandy of extraordinary character. The first new Korbel Brandy in more than a decade, Korbel 12 draws on a 124-year heritage of brandy excellence to achieve the ultimate in richness, smoothness and complexity. When Francis Korbel constructed his first brandy still inside a brick tower at Korbel Champagne Cellars in 1889, he made the foundation of Korbel Brandy – in the grapes, in the distillation, in the barrel and in the blending. Quality continues to be Korbel Brandy's foundation and the very best of those production elements went into Korbel 12. Made with premium grapes, this handcrafted brandy was distilled in a copperlined still (similar to the one Francis used), aged for a minimum of 12 years in hand-coopered Appalachian oak barrels and blended from individually selected barrels to be the finest brandy possible. Korbel 12 showcases concentrated yet seamlessly integrated fruit, vanilla, cedar and spice aromas and flavors. The rich, sophisticated character is complemented by exceptional smoothness making it perfect for savoring “neat” and wonderful in mixed drinks. Korbel 12’s packaging is as stylish and elegant as the brandy itself; a tall, square-shouldered bottle bearing a gold-embossed black label and medallion. Just 1,800 six-bottle cases of Korbel 12 California Brandy were produced for this inaugural release. It is available in select markets at a suggested retail of $39.99. Korbel has produced award-winning California brandy since 1889. Unique among United States producers, Korbel maintains complete control of its brandy production process from grape to bottle. Korbel 12 joins three other brandies in the Korbel portfolio: rich, flavorful Korbel California Brandy, complex, sumptuous Korbel V.S.O.P Gold Reserve and unique Korbel XS, which blends Madagascar vanilla, natural orange essence, spices and pure cane sugar for a one-of-a-kind taste. A visit to this historic winery is a trip back in time, and also a visit to the future. The grounds are beautiful, the tasting room lively yet harkens one back to the hallowed past. The people are well-versed in it all, and a visit is not just about today, it also recognizes a very special history that should not be forgotten. Korbel Champagne Cellars is located at 13250 River Road in Guerneville and is open daily from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. For more information, call (707) 824-7000 or visit the website at www.korbel.com.Drink responsibly.

Biography Of Wine Industry Pioneer Jess Stonestreet Jackson Released
‘A Man and His Mountain’ tells the story of the everyman who created Kendall-Jackson and became America’s greatest wine entrepreneur
Jackson Family Wines, a portfolio of exceptional wines including Kendall-Jackson and more than 30 individual wineries around the world is proud to announce the publication of the authorized biography of company founder, wine industry visionary Jess Stonestreet Jackson, entitled “A Man and His Mountain; The Everyman who Created Kendall-Jackson and Became America’s Greatest Wine Entrepreneur.” Released on October 22, 2013 by PublicAffairs Books (a member of the Perseus Books Group), “A Man and His Mountain” tells the extraordinary story of the self-made man who built Kendall-Jackson from nothing into the biggest-selling brand of ultra-premium wines in the U.S. – all after the age of 50 years old. Jess Stonestreet Jackson was one of a small band of pioneering entrepreneurs who put California’s wine country on the map. His life story is a compelling slice of history, daring, innovation, feuds, intrigue, talent, mystique, contrarianism and luck, offering a unique window on the elegant, adventurous and cut-throat worlds of Jackson’s two passions: wine and horseracing. Time after time his decisions would be ignored, derided, then finally envied and imitated, as whole industries watched him become a millionaire and tried to keep up. He reinvented himself at mid-life, and became founder and CEO of KendallJackson Winery. The empire he constructed endures and thrives even after his death in 2011. In “A Man and His Mountain,” Pulitzer prizewinning author Edward Humes brings us the tale of the brilliant, infuriating, successful man who seemed to win more than his share by staying far ahead of the pack. Written with the full cooperation of the Jackson family, the book is a no holds barred portrait of this complicated and brilliant businessman. “My family and I are so proud of Jess’ legacy,” says Barbara Banke, chairman and proprietor of Jackson Family Wines and Jess’ wife and business partner for 25 years, “our hope is that this book inspires others to follow their passions as Jess did.”

Bring Your Holidays To Cornerstone Sonoma
• Le Cirque De Boheme – A Winter Circus for the Holidays • Cornerstone’s 9th Annual Lighting of the Snowmen • Santa in the Big Blue Chair, Carolers, Shopping, Gift Wrapping & More
Cornerstone Sonoma invites you to “Bring Your Holidays to Cornerstone” as they kick off the season with an authentic 1920s style French holiday circus titled “Le Cirque de Boheme,” for eight special performances beginning on Friday, November 29 and closing on Monday, December 2. Next up is the 9th annual Lighting of the Snowmen set for Sunday, December 8 with festivities beginning at 3 p.m. plus additional holiday highlights including photos with Santa in Cornerstone’s Big Blue Chair, a complimentary gift wrapping station and Christmas carolers. All of this holiday fun can only happen at Cornerstone where the shops, wine rooms and entertainment are as unique and artful as the gardens. A French holiday tradition begins its inaugural run at Cornerstone Sonoma for just eight special performances. “Le Cirque de Boheme” is an old style, holiday circus based on the French tradition of the 1920s, filled with the promise of enchantment, thrill and wonder. Tickets are $25 for adults and $15 for children 15 and under. Tickets can be purchased online at www.cornerstonesonoma.com. A portion of each ticket will benefit the Sonoma Valley Mentoring Alliance. Le Cirque de Boheme is an intimate gathering limited to just 80 guests per show and held under the wedding tent in the magical gardens at Cornerstone. Show times run daily at 1 and 3 p.m. for four days only, Friday, November 29 through Monday, December 2. Enjoy world-class talent with performances that are deftly woven into “Le Cirque de Boheme,” a story of 10-year-old Luna who takes us on a journey into a long ago time high atop the hills on Montmartre near the famous Le Moulin Rouge in Paris. Within Luna’s dream, she encounters a sword thrower, contortionist, magician, slack rope walker and other assorted denizens of Paris of the 1920s. To make room for the debut of Le Cirque de Boheme, the 9th annual Lighting of the Snowmen at Cornerstone has been moved to Sunday, December 8 at 3 p.m. Come out and be the first to see what the Snowmen are up to this year! Festivities include photos with Santa on the Big Blue Chair, a special performance by the Sonoma Ballet Conservatory, live music in the snowflake filled courtyard, classic holiday films in the Olive Grove Cinema, and back for a second year, a traditional German Beer Garden with a variety of beers, German sausage and even men in Lederhosen. Admission to the Lighting of the Snowmen is free but because of overcrowding, parking is $5 per car with 100% of the proceeds benefiting the Sonoma Valley Mentoring Alliance. Overflow parking is available two minutes down the road at Jacuzzi Winery with a shuttle to and from the event leaving every five minutes. The Lighting of the Snowmen has become a favorite holiday tradition in Sonoma. In addition to wine, food, fun and live music, during the Lighting of the Snowmen event, Cornerstone is hosting a benefit to support the Sonoma Valley Mentoring Alliance. An arms length of tickets will go a long way for $20. You can swap benefit tickets for gingerbread men and women to decorate, hot chocolate, face painting by Popo

Buena Vista Winery Awarded California Preservation Design Award for Innovative Seismic Strengthening
California’s First Premium Winery Recognized for Seismic Strengthening
Buena Vista Winery was awarded the 2013 California Preservation Design Award for “Craftsmanship/Preservation Technology” at the 30th Annual California Preservation Awards at the Merchants Exchange Building in San Francisco. The Champagne Cellars at Buena Vista, a California Historic Landmark, were seismically retrofitted using innovative technology called center core drilling, making it possible to restore and preserve the original look and feel of the façade of the cellars, as it had originally been built in 1857. The California Preservation Foundation recognized the renovation and seismic strengthening of the Champagne Cellars as having “maximized retention of character-defining features while minimizing visual impacts.” The Champagne Cellars last produced wine in 1979 and closed to the public after the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake. Jean-Charles Boisset, proprietor of Buena Vista, has made the restoration of the winery his duty to remind the world of its extensive role in winemaking history. “Buena Vista’s future is its past. Our mission is to preserve and perpetuate the imaginative vision and unrivaled legacy of the winery’s founder and to protect the first grand estate of the California wine world for the world to discover.” Restoration and preservation of the Champagne Cellars, which had fallen to great disrepair and neglect, would follow shortly after Boisset’s purchase of the winery in 2011. To prevent any visible evidence of reinforcement on the stone walls, center core drilling was utilized. Four- to six-inchdiameter “cores” were meticulously drilled from the top of the wall to the bottom, allowing for a single rod of reinforced steel to be placed within the core. This was then filled with grout creating a reinforced vertical column reinforcing and strengthening the stone walls. Additional work to the cellars repointing all the joints; replacing cracked and deteriorated stones; repairing wall cracks and removing mortar; re-grouting of the outer walls with a unique mortar custom-mixed to ensure it was compatible with the original stone; and replacing the asphalt driveway with hand chiseled cobblestone. Lead architect Naomi Miroglio of Architectural Resources Group, Inc., remarked, “The California Preservation Foundation is the premier preservation organization in the state of California; and to have them recognize the work that we have done is very exciting.” Miroglio’s other prominent projects have included Beringer Winery, Charles Krug Winery and the Culinary Institute of America Greystone Campus.

On August 31, 2012, after having been closed for over 20 years, the Champagne Cellars re-opened to the public on the 200th anniversary of Count Agoston Haraszthy’s, the founder of Buena Vista, birthday, and wine is again being produced within the historic cellars’ walls. To learn more about Buena Vista Winery, visit www.buenavistawinery.com, or call (707) 963-6939.

MOONDANCE CELLARS
A Unique Blend of Music, Art & Wine!
BY ABIGAIL P. ZIMMERMAN

Don’t miss Moondance Cellars! David and Priscilla Cohen are two cool cats who make delightfully delicious, small lot wines under their artisan labels Moondance Cellars (reds) and Orchard Station Winery (whites). Usually on hand to welcome all guests to their tasting room, David and Priscilla take all pretension out of fine wines. What’s left? A down-to-earth place with a happy vibe, cool hosts and awardwinning wine to sip. Building on more than two decades of passion in their pursuit of wine, the Cohens created this tasting room to share their unquenchable joy in wine – especially Cabernet. “We want everybody to love wine!” says David. “And we are not intimidating. Wine should not be intimidating!” Moondance Cellars Tasting Room is located in Glen Ellen at the historic Jack London Village – the oldest winery building in California. In keeping with the flavor of the 1860s building, the Cohens renovated using only salvaged materials. Hand-hewn beams and discarded lumber, old window frames and warehouse doors add charm. Great jazz is always on the radio. This laid-back, dog-friendly space both welcomes visitors and draws your attention first and foremost to the wines. Moondance Cellars showcases David’s long love affair and work history producing wine that truly reflects the fruit – specializing in making wine from only the very best grapes. Years ago as ranch manager for B.R. Cohn Winery, and under the tutelage of Helen Turley and the late John Speed of St. Francis Winery, David learned the art of winemaking and portraying the true, pure characters in each varietal. For a $10 tasting fee, guests will taste six wines. Current tastings include: • 2012 Orchard Station Chardonnay ($25): true to the grape. Zesty citrus, melon and brightly crisp acidity. • 2011 Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon ($48): A cornucopia of anise, black cherries and deep earthly spice. Two great facets to the Moondance Cellars Tasting Room: 1. Their superb selection of gourmet oils, spices, sauces and mustards. Made solely for Moondance Cellars, the grapeseed oils and mustards are only available for purchase at the tasting room. 2. Wine Country Chocolates is right next door. Pick up their Zinfandel truffle and savor it with any of David’s Cabs!

14301 Arnold Dr, Glen Ellen, CA 95442 (707) 938-7550 | www.moondancecellars.com

Moondance Cellars tasting room is open Thursday through Monday, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. It is wheelchair accessible and of course, dog friendly!

Visit the New Tasting Room at Laurel Glen Vineyards
BY ALEXANDRA CHARSLEY

Laurel Glen Vineyard is a beautiful mountain vineyard that is well known for producing highly rated Cabernet Sauvignon wines in the past under the direction of founder Patrick Campbell. Patrick focused efforts on developing and producing wines in Lodi and South America and eventually decided to sell the vineyard. In 2011, Bettina Sichel, a veteran of the California wine industry, became the steward of Laurel Glen Vineyard after teaming up with a group of wine lovers to purchase the iconic estate. Bettina is the daughter of Peter M.F . Sichel, the man responsible for making Blue Nun a household name in America. She is the fifth generation of the

Sichel family to work in the wine business. She brings over 20 years of working with the finest producers of Cabernet Sauvignon and believes that with improved organic farming, more careful handling of the fruit and gentler fermentation techniques, the new wines are already noticeably more exciting. The Laurel Glen Vineyard Tasting Room which is open daily by advance appointment. Guests are offered two different

seated tasting options. For $20, guests can taste their three current release wines and this fee is refundable with a wine purchase or waived for members of their Laureate Club. For $45, reserve a Library Wine Tasting with Cheese and taste four vintages of Cabernet Sauvignon spanning 10 years of production. Both tasting experiences offer insight into the rich history of Laurel Glen as well as their future plans. Bettina, along with her knowledgeable winemakers and team, are on a mission to restore the stylistic elegance with a balance of acidity and fruit ripeness, finesse and ageability to their estate Cabernet Sauvignon. To schedule your tasting, visit www.laurelglen.com or call (707) 933-9877.

Harmonique Wine Opens New Tasting Room
Situated in the Hanes Fine Art Gallery in Boonville New Club Members Receive up to 30 Percent Discount
Harmonique Wine owners Bruce and Moira Conzelman announced the opening of their new tasting room in downtown Boonville, Anderson Valley. Centrally located in the Hanes Fine Art Gallery across from the Boonville Hotel, small-lot Anderson Valley Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines are available for complimentary tasting, Friday through Monday, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. For a limited time only, Harmonique is offering a discount of up to 30 percent when new members sign up for the wine club. “Although the tasting room is situated among a beautiful collection of original paintings and sculptures, we wanted to give it a sense of place,” said Bruce Conzelman. To give visitors a feeling of actually being in the Conzelman Vineyard, located in the “deep end” of Anderson Valley, a wide panoramic photograph of Pinot Noir vines entices guests. “The mural is very large, almost actual size,” said Conzelman. Tom Liden, a well-known Mendocino County photographer, shot the life-sized scenic backdrop. His photos can also be seen in the new book entitled Mendocino Roots and Ridges. “I wanted to give the viewer a close-up experience of being right in the vines where Harmonique Pinot Noir grapes are grown,” said Liden. The 16.5-foot wide by five-foot high vineyard depiction establishes this sense of place. Harmonique Wine offers three distinct styles of Anderson Valley Pinot Noir and an un-oaked Chardonnay in the new tasting room at 14501 Highway 128, Boonville. Gina Schock is the Tasting Room Manager. “Tasting is complimentary and library wines are available to purchase,” said Gina. “We are offering our visitors a beautiful, luminous space to discover these wine gems.” For more information, visit www.harmoniquewine.com or call (707) 895-9300.

Wine Tasting in
LIVERMORE VALLEY
Garré Wines – A Glass from the Past to Toast the Future
SUBMITTED BY GINA MOLINAROCARDERA

Historians can trace the viticulture activity in the Livermore Valley back to 1832. We can trace our family winemaking back to the early 19th century as well to a small village outside of Genoa, Italy. A family photo hangs in our Tasting Room of Nonna “Rosa” Garré with a glass of wine in her hand and her son-in-law, Gino Molinaro, holding the jug of family wine. The picture was taken in Glen Ellen at our family’s summer cabin in the early 1930s. My dad, (Bob Molinaro, Garré Winery owner) tells the story of

his dad and uncles getting together every year to make their wine for the family. The truck would bring red grapes from Napa to San Francisco, where the families lived. The grapes would be crushed and fermented and the wine would be made. My uncles learned from their uncles who brought their knowledge and experience from the Old Country to the New World. Our heritage and family traditions are the backbone of Garré, welcoming everyone who visits as family to enjoy the experience of Old Italy. Stop by for a visit, you’ll be glad you did. Share in our toast of “a glass from the past, a toast to the future.”
