INTELLIGENCE FOR THE WINE CONSUMER
BY LEN NAPOLITANO

What is the difference between Champagne and Sparkling Wine?
Champagne, and all wines with bubbles, falls under a broad category known as Sparkling Wine, but Champagne specifically comes from the famous wine region in France of the same name. It is made by the traditional labor and time-intensive method known as méthode champenoise. In addition, the grapes that make genuine Champagne are limited by French law to chardonnay, pinot noir, and pinot meunier. Through international trademark law, it is no longer legal to identify a sparkling wine that is made outside the Champagne region of France as “Champagne.” A few American producers, through “grandfathering” rules, are permitted to label their sparkling wine as Champagne if they choose to. Some will opt to use the more generic term Sparkling Wine. There are no restrictions in the US as to the types of grapes that must be used in these wines. Sparkling wines around the world are identified with the country’s own term for sparkling wine. For example, in Spain it is labeled Cava and in Germany it’s known as Sekt. Italy calls it Spumante and in France, when outside of its Champagne region, a sparkling wine is identified as Crémant. Méthode champenoise, or “fermented in this bottle,” is an indication that the wine was made using the traditional Champagnemaking method, widely acknowledged to produce a superior style of sparkling wine – albeit at a higher cost. Using méthode champenoise, California produces some world-class sparkling wines that are bright and crisp with a delightful level of acidity. Most offer subtle flavors of apple, pear, and sometimes a mild “toastiness” that originates from the yeast of the second fermentation that occurs inside the bottle and creates the bubbles. One last thing to remember when shopping for Champagne or Sparkling Wine is the terminology used to describe the level of dryness. It can be confusing. The following translates some common Champagne category names: • The driest Champagne is labeled as “Brut Nature” or “Extra Brut” • A “normal” dryness is indicated as “Brut” • When just a tinge of sweetness is noticeable it is called “Extra-Dry” • A “normal” detectable sweetness is labeled as “Sec” • A sweeter than normal Champagne is a "Demi-Sec” • The sweetest Champagne is indicated as “Doux”

WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK

Good to Know Before Heading to the Wineries
BY CHARLES NEAVE

For the most part, going wine tasting is about the easiest thing in the world, especially here in California where wineries and tasting rooms abound. You can find wineries specializing in red wines of all types, those that are famous for their white wines and others who pour sparkling wine. It is a matter of doing a little research and planning your day. Most tasting rooms open around 10 a.m. and close between 4:30 and 6 p.m. Here are some tips that have proven to be helpful and are designed to help make the sensory adventure of wine tasting all the more enjoyable. Before you start off pack a few essentials: Water (plenty of water) and something to snack on – crackers or a baguette. Many wineries have picnic areas and there are plenty of delis and bakeries that can make up a lunch for you, or make your own. Which brings us to eating and drinking, the kind that doesn’t directly involve wine. Be sure to nibble during the day and make sure you make time for lunch. Two tips: drink at least twice as much water as you do wine, and remember that you don’t have to drink everything poured into your glass. There is a reason tasting bars have dump buckets and a pitcher of water to wash out your glass. Don’t be afraid to ask questions. Time and time again I have heard knowledgeable winery workers say that there is no such thing as a stupid question, and they mean that. You can drink what you want, in the order you want. If you only like

reds, say so; if you don’t like sweet wines, speak up. But the idea of starting with whites, then going on to reds and then sweet wines is a good guide. Zinfandel is red. I am sure you know that but it never hurts to remind everyone. If there is a particular wine you want to try and it is not on the list, ask. There might be a bottle around that was opened for a trade tasting or by the winemaker. Most tasting rooms are happy to pour a little if you show enthusiasm. Take notes on the wines you most enjoyed. Take advantage of tours when the winery offers them, but keep in mind that they take anywhere from 20 minutes to well over an hour, so one a day is plenty. Buy wines that you can only find at the winery. These often include smaller (375 ml) bottles of limited production Ports or dessert wines. Don’t buy a wine you can get at a supermarket back home. You’ll pay more, and besides, what’s the point? Look for tasting rooms in towns. Many of these are cooperative tasting rooms, where in one place you might find wines from a dozen or more small-to-medium premium producers. They are scattered throughout the area and more are opening all the time. Don’t give too much thought to ratings and vintages. It’s like art: if you like it, it’s a good wine. It is as simple as that. Remember that you don’t have to do the driving. It takes no more than a phone call hire a transportation company to do the driving.

BY JOSH STEIN

Two Ways to Produce Bubbles with Very Different Results
Ever been handed a random glass of “sparkling wine” at an event or someone’s house, from which you eagerly sipped, expecting creaminess and length, but which instead gave nothing but disappoitment in the insipid, sweet, bubbled white or pink grape juice actually in the glass? No, it wasn’t you, and no, all bubbles are not created equal or equally. Blame soda for ever making you think otherwise since that’s essentially how that “wine” was made. There may be a lot of wine with bubbles out there, but not all are “sparkling wines” in the way we usually assume. Inexpensive sparkling wine tastes “cheap” not necessarily because of inexpensive grapes (though they don’t help) but because of an inexpensive production process, called the Charmat or “bulk” process, which accelerates the fermentation and thus the carbonation, creating an artificially-tasting mouthfeel on the tongue. Through the use of glass-lined pressure tanks, carbon dioxide can also be “injected” into the wine, giving it carbonation ala soda water. The result of either looks like sparkling wine, but it sure doesn’t give the same pleasures since with wine the time taken in production is reflected in the mouthfeel of the finished wine itself. It is literally a case of tongue beware! Indeed, without considerble time on the lees, the spent yeast and other fermentation by-products, the creaminess we associate with a sparkling wine won’t be present, which is why the bubbles don’t have the same mouthfeel. This latter, “methode traditionelle,” process produces the bubbles as part of a long, slow fermentation on the yeast in individual bottles and is what creates the luxuriously creamy yet fruity essence of proper sparkling wine or its various pseudonyms around the world (cava, prosecco, Asti, Champagne, etc.). It’s no joke that patience is rewarded in sparkling wines. The timeframe is completely different for each methodology, and that has the impact on the finished product. Equally, because the pressure tanks are proportionally so much larger than a sparkling wine bottle, the liquid-to-solids ratio is far different. What produces the creaminess of the mouthfeel in aged sparkling wines is precisely the length of time in contact with the fine lees – that’s what forms the modern day frozen “bolt” that each bottle releases during disgorgement before final bottling. Producers will sometimes move sparkling wines into other glass sizes before bottling in the finished glass for this reason: the right ratio really matters to the aging. In fact, all of the packaging for these wines has to be specially designed because sparkling wine is under pressure as this natural carbonation slowly builds, hence the familiar wire cage to make sure the cork cannot shoot out of the bottle. Thus, unlike a lot of other things in the world today, you really do get what you pay for with fine sparkling wines and their “natural” bubbles produced the “low and slow” way first recognized by winemasters Francesco Scacchi and Dom Pérignon all those centuries ago in Europe. Any sparkling wine made the traditional way will indicate as such on the label because the imposters legally cannot, and given the time, expense and headaches involved, those who can want credit where it’s due! At your next event, ask to see the bottle before you imbibe – and if anyone gives you a funny look, now you’ve got a conversation starter for those awkward event beginnings when no one knows what to talk about. Enjoy!

CANDLELIGHT INN
A Romantic Rendezvous for Your Sweetheart and You
A first encounter with the Candlelight Inn is a bit like “love at first sight”! As you approach the beautifully maintained and landscaped Tudor Mansion – built as a residence in 1929 – it appears to straddle Easum Drive, a modest residential area. The street – not far from Napa’s Town Center – ends as you park in the welcoming front courtyard. Right here, in the bustling epicenter of everything that makes the wine country so desirable, the luxurious ten-room inn sits on its own private, one-acre, secluded park. It is bordered by Napa Creek and nestled beneath towering redwoods. Here, a spacious pool/cabana is surrounded by meticulously landscaped flowering shrubs, bushes and rock gardens. Noticeable sounds are birds and rustling leaves. Originally designed for an active family’s enjoyment, Candlelight Inn is now a private retreat for discriminating visitors to the wine country. Many guests, who were smitten by that first impression, now return year after year to relax and renew their enjoyment of all the region offers. On each visit, there is more to do. In recent years, Napa has become a hub for worldrenowned chefs, and each year brings more restaurant openings. At the inn, guests can enjoy complimentary wine and hors d’oeuvres as well as snacks and drinks at all hours. A three-course breakfast featuring local and seasonal foods is served each morning. Most rooms have a deck or balcony, a two-person marble Jacuzzi tub and a fireplace. All have air conditioning, TV, telephone and wireless internet access. Each is unique and tastefully designed. An on-site concierge provides personalized dining and wine country touring recommendations. The concierge also helps guide you to the numerous attractions of wine country – hiking and bicycling, kayaking, bird watching, cultural attractions, balloon rides and spa services. The inn has received numerous awards and been featured in USA Weekend and National Geographic Traveler. The Candlelight Inn is located at 1045 Easum Drive, Napa.

Five Tips For Buying and Serving Sparkling Wine
BY LEN NAPOLITANO

Peak season for sparkling wines is here, and consumers possessing the fundamentals of this special wine will make smarter purchases, says Len Napolitano, author of Nose, Legs, Body!: Know Wine Like The Back of Your Hand. “The first step is knowing that all Champagnes are sparkling wines but not all sparkling wines are Champagnes,” says Napolitano, whose quick and simple wine book is a “best seller” in California tasting rooms. “A genuine Champagne is made in a specific region of France named Champagne.” Napolitano offers the following buying advice:

work well with what you are eating. Salty meat and snacks, spicy and fried foods and cream-based sauces all shine followed by a sip of crisp bubbly.

5. Handle with care, chill and serve – Be aware of the high pressure
trapped inside a closed bottle of sparkling wine. A warm bottle increases pressure and causes the cork to shoot out with even more force than a cold bottle. Chill to about 45°F , use a towel to grab the cork in one hand, and turn the bottle, not the cork, as you pull the cork straight out without twisting.
Len Napolitano was the “wineologist” on TV’s Fine Living Network and is the wine columnist for Wine Country This Week . Len has certification from the Society of Wine Educators and the Wine & Spirits Education Trust. His book is available at select Gelson’s supermarkets in greater Los Angeles, amazon.com, barnesandnoble.com and www.wineology.com.

1. The genuine article costs more – Although you pay for a reputation
for greatness earned over centuries, true Champagne requires much time and effort to make. But if you are not fussy about the size or longevity of the bubbles streaming up your fluted glass, choose generic sparkling wine, which can often be just as pleasing. Hundreds of sparkling wines are made in many states in the U.S. in addition to other European countries. Proseco and Spumante from Italy, Cava from Spain and Sekt from Germany are the most popular sparklers from Europe outside of France.

E S TD

18 76

2. Know the sweetness lingo – Terminology describing the level of
sweetness can confuse. Brut is very dry and, logically, Extra-Brut is one level drier. However, Extra-Dry, sometimes called Extra-Sec, is one level sweeter than Brut, but Sec is sweeter than Extra Sec.

N APA V ALLEY’ S M OST A WARDED W INERY

3. Don’t be too concerned with vintage – Contrary to still wines, the
majority of sparkling wines do not specify a vintage. These nonvintage, or NV, wines are made from grapes grown in multiple years so a consistent style is kept year to year. In exceptional growing seasons, a vintage sparkler is produced and the year is printed on the label. Expect to pay more for a vintage sparkler than non-vintage.

4. Enjoy its many pairing partners – Besides celebrations, or enjoying
sparkling wine in advance of dinner, keep in mind that it can also

KORBEL CALIFORNIA CHAMPAGNE
13250 River Road, Guerneville (707) 824-7000 | (707) 824-7316 www.korbel.com
CELEBRATE RESPONSIBLY

America’s most popular champagne
BY DENISE OLLIFFE

For more than 130 years, Korbel has been bottling some of the finest California champagnes from its facility located along the scenic Russian River Valley. Long considered the nation’s champagne, you’ve likely popped open a bottle to celebrate a milestone in your life, as have many American presidents throughout the years. (Since 1985, Korbel has been selected as the official champagne of the last eight Presidential Inaugurations.)

Méthode Champenoise
Korbel has held fast to the time-honored French tradition – méthode champenoise – where the champagne is fermented inside of the same bottle from which it’s served. First, wines are made (most popularly from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes) and fermented in casks until ready to be taken out to create a cuvee blend. The cuvee blend is then added to a champagne bottle along with further yeast and sugar. Next, the bottle is capped where the wine is fermented for a second time, inside the bottle. During this second fermentation process, yeast eats away at the sugar, creating a natural carbon dioxide (the bubbles Korbel California champagne is known for). The longer the yeast is given to eat away at the sugar, the smaller the bubbles become, and the finer the champagne. The bottles, initially upright, are then flipped 180° upside down for more than a year to “riddle” the yeast sediment into the neck of the bottle and complete the fermentation process. Once the second fermentation process is complete, bottles are carefully moved (with the yeast sediment now in the neck of the bottle), and the yeast sediment is frozen in place at the bottle neck, and extracted. Dosage (sugar) is then added (the percent of dosage is what makes champagne dry or sweet), then bottles are corked, caged and labeled.

WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK | WINERY FEATURE
Interesting Korbel California Champagne facts
• Did you know that according to tradition, the uncaging of the cork on a champagne bottle requires only six turns? The next time you pop open a bottle of Korbel, give it a try! • Korbel lists the percentage of “dosage” on the back of each bottle, to help buyers determine how dry or sweet the champagne is – check for it the next time you’re purchasing Korbel California champagne. For instance, Korbel’s popular Brut has a dosage level of 1%, making it dry champagne, and its Sweet Rosé is at 6% dosage – a much sweeter varietal. • People often ask what the difference is between a champagne and still wine grape. The actual grape varietals used are exactly the same. The only difference between the two styles is when the grapes are harvested (grapes used for champagne are harvested much earlier). Unlike wine, champagne is meant to be consumed quickly, not aged and shelved for long periods of time.

History and garden buffs take note
A free, captivating 50-minute tour departs daily 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., from the Korbel Railroad Station that was built in 1876 (a former railroad station on the tracks laid by Korbel which ran through the estate to San Francisco as a thriving supply line). This fascinating historic walking tour takes visitors through the antique Korbel wine cellars (built in 1886 and completed in 1890, using redwoods from the property) and history museum, full of artifacts from the winery’s inception. Be sure not to miss the short film on the history of Korbel. Korbel’s Garden Tour is offered mid-April through mid-October, 1 p.m. and 3 p.m., Tuesday through Sunday – a nod to Korbel’s rich farming history.

Tastings and the Korbel Delicatessen and Market
Korbel treats visitors to four free tastings per person, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., daily. Several Korbel champagne varietals can only be tasted and purchased directly at the tasting room or through Korbel’s wine club. Besides California champagne, Korbel also produces still wines that can only be purchased at the winery or through the club, as well as a variety of brandies (including its newly released Korbel 12 California Brandy – aged for more than 12 years). While you’re there, plan for lunch at Korbel’s award-winning delicatessen, open daily 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. You can choose from a gourmet boxed lunch (advance orders recommended) that includes a gourmet sandwich, handmade pasta salad, seasonal fresh fruit, a house baked cookie, soft drink and utensils. The deli also makes made-to-order sandwiches, salads, soup du jour, espresso drinks and more.

GRGICH HILLS ESTATE
Lots to Enjoy from Two Generations of Winemaking
BY JOSH STEIN

GRGICH HILLS ESTATE Open daily from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. 1829 St Helena Hwy, Rutherford, CA 94573 (707) 963-2784 | www.grgich.com

To understand today’s Napa, you have to step back in time before it was internationally well known, and you need to look to those who were there before the change. The Grgich family’s legacy is a reflection of the evolution of the Napa Valley itself over the last half century, as well as portending where its future lies. It was, of course, at the historic 1976 Paris Tasting where Mike Grgich’s public recognition took place – his Chardonnay received the highest combined score of any wine, red or white – and, after again winning first place at a second event, The Great Chicago Showdown, he received his famous nickname, “The King of Chardonnay.” It was July 4th, 1977, when Grgich Hills opened its doors to the public. Since then, Mike has made many wines and become world-known for his winemaking prowess. Today, the torch has been passed to daughter Violet, and Mike’s nephew, Ivo Jeramaz. (Ivo has a master degree in engineering and originally came to America to work as an engineer. When he first arrived, Mike put him to work where quickly learned to love winemaking. Ivo is now responsible for all of the daily operations, including the transitioning of the estate to sustainable practices. “At Grgich Hills, we grow grapes like my grandfather did, farming without chemicals and pesticides,” Ivo says. “Mike taught me early in my career that you need great grapes to make great wine. Over the years, I’ve focused on working with the land. Through our natural farming, it’s been very rewarding to seeing the soil alive with healthier plants than under conventional farming. It allows the wines to be more authentic – more distinctive.” And, as the awards, medals and scores have shown, the transition of the estate, and the transition of one generation of stewardship to another, have proven to be quite successful and ready for whatever the next fifty years bring for the Napa Valley. The wines waiting for you after you pull in next to the Wine Train’s tracks are each as distinct as the tasting room itself, which is cement-floored and lined with barrels. As Mike says, “We treat each of our different wines as a special child, carefully nurturing their development and character.” All the fruit is estate owned, and all are certified organic and biodynamic, hence the addition of Estate to the winery’s name in 2007. There are two different Cabernets to try, as well as two Chardonnays, two very different expressions of

Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot, Zinfandel, and the Violetta Late Harvest White, named for Mike’s daughter. In addition, there are tasting-room-only and rare library releases, which are constantly changing, and the holidays always bring new releases, too. The limited production wines releasing this December are the 2009 Petite Sirah and 2012 Essence Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc; both are wine club and tasting room only wines, so the intrepid earn the rewards here. And what makes your visit an experience way above par are the loads of tasting and touring options. Most Friday afternoons provide the opportunity for barrel tasting, but that’s just the beginning. You have choices which include the Unforgettable Tour and Tasting, which goes from vineyard to production areas, concluding with tasting current releases. For those looking for something more intimate, the Private Seated Tasting provides a private tour which concludes in the Salon with cheeses paired to current releases. Equally, the Library Wine and Cheese Tasting on Saturdays and Sundays provides opportunities to enjoy cheeses with specially selected bottlings. There is also the Private Library Tasting, an exclusive, private tour which concludes in the Wine Library, allowing access to past vintages. Last but not least is the Rustic Vineyard Adventure, which leads visitors through the South Napa vineyards on a personal tour. All of these options can include extras like boxed lunches or barrel tastings at your discretion. The hospitality team is more than happy to create unique experiences for you; just let them know your plans and they’ll take it from there. While several of these experiences do not require reservations, most do, and the winery is busy enough – and enjoyable enough – that you won’t want to leave it to chance: go online and make a reservation or call ahead, even if on the same day, to save your spot! Trust me: there aren’t many places anywhere which can pull it off the way the team at Grgich Hills Estate can. There’s a reason the winery is on its second generation and still going strong with almost four hundred acres under its direct control. Go and enjoy!

MERRYVALE
Lots of Possibilities at the Very Merry Merryvale!
BY JOSH STEIN

MERRYVALE VINEYARDS Open daily 11 a.m. – 6:30 p.m. | Wine Tasting Flights until 6 p.m. 1000 Main Street, St Helena CA 94574 | (707) 963-7777 | www.merryvale.com

Merryvale is unique in several ways. It was the first winery built in the Valley after the repeal of Prohibition (known then as Sunny St. Helena), and it put a shot into the arm of the domestic wine business, letting the country know that Prohibition hadn’t shut anything down in wine country. Equally, most wineries, not just in Napa but throughout the world, tend to be in less-than-easy locations to reach, which makes sense given the necessity of having grapes in locations ideal for them rather than humans and the ability to process those grapes close at hand. However, being in the city grants much easier access, not just to the winery but to the worldrenowned restaurants, shops and community within easy walking distance. What greets visitors now are beautifully landscaped grounds, a glorious fountain and a building which proudly shows off how long it’s been around, surrounded by the mid-Valley and its glorious views. Wine production at Merryvale focuses on Cabernet and other Bordeaux varieties, but as befits a winery with this much pedigree, they produce a full range of outstanding wines. The Merryvale wines are produced in different tiers, and as befits a winery with this much pedigree, there are lots of great options. The Prestige wines present two cuvees, the Silhouette Chardonnay and the red Bordeaux blend, Profile, each of which is bottled to showcase the best lots from the estate vineyards in each vintage. The Merryvale Portfolio and Single-Vineyard wines are limited production releases of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Chardonnay, Merlot and Pinot Noir, as well as vineyard designated bottles of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah and Zinfandel, among others. Not content with these various lines of releases, the Schlatters and famed Napa growers the Beckstoffers created three special single-vineyard releases under a MerryvaleBeckstoffer Vineyards label gtp, 1999-2005. The Merlot is from Carneros’s Las Amigas Vineyard; one Cabernet Sauvignon comes from Oakville’s Vineyard X while the Clone Six Cabernet Rutherford comes from the historic Georges III Vineyard. These wines are available only from Merryvale’s Wine Library. Last but not least is the Antigua dessert wine, made from Muscat de Frontignan grapes and fortified with brandy. Aged in oak for an average of eleven years, this is a wine not to be missed! The Schlatter family has created a tasting cellar which, befitting its links to Napa’s origins, shows off fir and

redwood with lots to look at on the walls as you taste and wander around or sit at a table; three different wine flights await: the Signature Tasting of current releases, the VineyardDesignate Tasting of estate and single-vineyard bottlings, and the Prestige Tasting of small-lot and special releases. There are daily Wine Experiences, giving the option of cheeses to pair with the wines, or visitors can choose private tastings in the Barrel Room and a tour, and there is also the Library Portfolio Tasting, which allows a tasting through three decades’ releases. For those wanting more to enjoy, there are a number of club options available to allow the experience to continue even when you’ve left the Valley. These include a choice of three or six bottles in each shipment, and the option of reds-only or a mix or reds and whites with each delivery. The Premium Club sends a selection of both limited and distributed Merryvale wines while the Prestige Club gives full access to the small production wines, including Profile and Silhouette, generally available only direct from the winery. For those seeking something even wilder, the Magnum Club offers only large-format bottlings of Merryvale red wines. As you can see, while wine is sometimes up on the side of a mountain, it can also be just south of the heart of the Napa Valley. And that can be a very good thing. It makes for good times tasting great wines in a relaxed, welcoming atmosphere. Do yourself a favor and stop in for the very merry times just south of the St. Helena main drag – enjoy!

A portion of the seminar will include truffle dog training considerations, led by Alana McGee, ATC’s Master Dog Trainer. Buffet lunch on Friday and Saturday truffle orchard tour/dog training demo at Sinskey Vineyards are included.

Welcome Reception – La Toque
The Festival officially kicks off with an exclusive welcome reception on La Toque’s elegant terrace where guests will sip local wines and sample an array of delectable truffle appetizers while hobnobbing with truffle experts, food gurus and the guest star chefs (sans toques).

 FRIDAY, JANUARY 17  New this year: Scientific Grower Truffle Cultivation Seminar
Truffle orchards are highly profitable, and are an excellent and viable way to diversify land usage. The demand for European black truffles, the most sought after truffles in the world (aka “the diamond of the kitchen”), far exceeds supply. Current black truffle production is almost exclusively in Europe, but now these truffles can be cultivated in select areas around the world. North America, especially regions like Napa and Sonoma, offer particularly suitable climates/soil. Designed for potential truffle growers, this in-depth seminar provides a detailed technical overview of the science and methodology involved in truffle cultivation. Presented by American Truffle Company’s Chief Scientist Dr. Paul Thomas and Managing Director Robert Chang, you will learn about the myriad of scientific factors one must consider to successfully grow truffles.

 SATURDAY, JANUARY 18  All About Truffles – For the curious and the hungry, and anyone who loves truffles (the fungi kind)
Come learn all about truffles – the cuisine, the sex and the science! In this exciting, comprehensive primer about all things truffle, you will get tips on cooking with truffles from our Michelin star host chef Ken Frank who will discuss how to handle fresh truffles in the kitchen, as well as common myths and misconceptions about the various truffle species and “products.” You’ll also get a glimpse into the science of truffles (including “sex and truffles”!) with world-

In addition to Chef Ken, this year’s star chef lineup includes Alessandro Boglione, Ristorante al Castello, Italy; Carrie Nahabedian, NAHA, Chicago; and Jarad Gallagher, Chez TJ, Mountain View.

 SUNDAY, JANUARY 19 
Festival-goers will rise and shine for an early morning wild mushroom forage led by renowned mycophagist David Campbell: “We’ll see what we find and find what we see! With a little luck, perhaps we’ll find Porcini, Hedgehogs, Chanterelles or Candy Caps…” accompanied by Dr. Paul Thomas and local mycologist Stephanie Jarvis.

What are Truffles?
Truffles are a kind of underground mushroom that grow on the roots of certain host tree species, particularly oak and hazelnut. They are highly prized by top chefs and connoisseurs around the world for their exquisite flavor, and command extremely high prices. There are hundreds of varieties of truffles, but the fruiting body of a select few, particularly the European black and white truffles, are highly prized, with demand far exceeding supply. In a 60 Minute segment that aired in 2012, truffles were dubbed “the most expensive food in the world,” the allure and scarcity of which has created a black market - “none of which has dampened the appetite for this prized fungi.” Current European black truffle production is almost exclusively in Europe - predominately France, followed by Spain and Italy, with small amounts in Slovenia, Croatia and Australia. But now, with proper science, these truffles can be cultivated in select areas around the world. Northern California, especially Napa and Sonoma, offer particularly suitable climates/soil.

Let Stagecoach Express Ship Your Wines Home
Long gone are the days when you bring a couple of bottles of Cabernet or Chardonnay in your carry-on bag for the flight home. Besides, in all likelihood the bottle or two you had set out to buy had suddenly crept closer to half a case or a case, and even if it was a viable option, do you want to tote 40 pounds of wine through the terminal and onto the plane? I think not. That is when you call or stop by Stagecoach Express in Napa. The business, started over two decades ago, was acquired by Sue Bailey and Larry Rupp in 1998. “Let us ship your Napa Memories home” is their mantra and that is exactly what they do. They package up those bottled memories and make sure they get safely to your home or office. “We specialize in shipping wine all over the country, or at least to most of it,” Sue says. “Customer service and attention to detail is what we are known for. We take care of it right away and pay special attention to every shipment. We also send emails to customers when their shipment is sent, and call them to make sure someone will be home to receive it.” Stagecoach Express will also pick up your wine from Napa Valley wineries, hotels, private residences and bed and breakfasts, and ship it off x for you. In addition to packaging and shipping wine they also offer fax and copy services and, if you need one, they’ll get a notary for you. They’ll even recommend wineries to visit if you are curious about searching out new places. If you’re planning ahead and know that you will have some bottles to send home, you can go to their website and download their shipping form. Just another part of a 29 business where service, and the customer, means everything. The Stagecoach Express office is just off of Highway 29 (take the Redwood Road exit) at 3379 Solano Avenue in Redwood Plaza, Napa 94558. They are open every day except Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. (on Saturdays 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.) For more information, call (707) 257-1888 or (877) 232-5054, or go to www.stagecoachexpress.com.

NAPA VALLEY WINE TRAIN
A New Year’s Eve to Remember
Acclaimed by Entertainment Tonight, Food Network, VH1, NBC and more, the Napa Valley Wine Train is a wine country favorite. Vintage décor, authentic American train cars and spectacular gourmet cuisine continue to meet and surpass guest expectations. Elevated Vista Dome, classic Gourmet Express and open-air Silverado BBQ grill offer guests a well-rounded selection of menus for dining and travel experiences that impress. Executive Chef Kelly Macdonald uses as many local ingredients as possible to create a melody of spectacular flavors that excite the palate. Five Dot Ranch skirt steak, spiced pumpkin soup, and chocolate tiramisu truffle are all just the tip of the iceberg of the variety offered on board. In the midst of savoring a spectacular meal, unforgettable picturesque views of the Napa Valley countryside roll by. Guests are encouraged to simply sit back, relax and enjoy with a glass of wine in hand. The Wine Train has also become known for its impeccable New Year’s Eve celebrations. This year’s theme, the Blackjack Ball, is being designed to recreate the elegance and class exuded by international spies, Monaco and martinis. Guests will begin their evening with a caviar and sparkling wine reception in the Station, then board the Train for an exquisite dining journey. The Wine Train is equipped with a full bar on board, allowing guests to assume the “private eye’s” persona and order their beverage shaken not stirred. After the Train returns to Napa, guests will disembark at the Wine Train Station, which will have been transformed into the Blackjack Ball complete with casino tables, a dance floor and a DJ. Then party guests will start the new year off right with a sparkling wine toast at midnight. Entertainment will continue until 1 a.m. The Napa Valley Wine Train is one of the most distinctive restaurants in the world. The antique rail cars and old fashioned service harkens back to the era of vintage American travel. These once dominant features of luxury in travel now offer the backdrop for one of a kind excursions, special events and private gatherings that leave you fully satisfied.

Duck Commander Willie and Korie Robertson

Trinchero Family Estates Collaborates with Robertson Family To Launch Duck Commander Wines
Duck Commander Wines will become part of Trinchero Family Estates’ portfolio of wines, and the line of products built around the successful Duck Commander company and Duck Dynasty TV series
Trinchero Family Estates announced that it has collaborated with the Robertson family, of Duck Commander and Duck Dynasty fame, to produce Duck Commander Wines. The first vintage includes Triple Threat 2011 Red Blend, Wood Duck 2012 Chardonnay and Miss Priss 2012 Pink Moscato, all produced from California vineyards. Duck Commander was founded in 1972 by Phil Robertson to produce professional duck calls. In 2012, Duck Dynasty premiered on A&E, and in 2013 it became the #1 unscripted cable show on record and the family’s book Happy, Happy, Happy became a #1 New York Times’ Best Seller. Duck Commander is still family-owned and family-run, and remains the leading supplier of duck calls. Trinchero Family Estates was founded in 1948 when the Trinchero family purchased the Sutter Home winery. In the early seventies – about the time Duck Commander was founded – Bob Trinchero produced Sutter Home White Zinfandel during a serendipitous winemaking experiment. The new varietal was a game-changer for Trinchero Family Estates and American wine drinkers. Still familyrun and family-owned, the Trinchero Family Estates portfolio now includes more than 35 brands such as Ménage a Trois (the #1 selling Red Blend in the U.S.), Folie a Deux, SeaGlass, Joel Gott Wines and Trinchero Napa Valley luxury wines – the only brand which bears the family name. The two families had a private dinner on November 18 to celebrate the launch of the wines and to plan for the upcoming vintage and varietal line-up of the brand. Roger Trinchero, principal, vice chairman and CEO of Trinchero Family Estates commented, “There are some natural synergies between the Trinchero family and Robertson family businesses. Both companies were built on family values with a mission to provide consumers with quality products. This has helped us both establish customer loyalty which continues on from one generation to the next.” Duck Commander CEO Willie Robertson added, “We decided to create Duck Commander Robertson Family wines because we know that many of our customers and our viewers choose to celebrate family moments with wine. We knew we needed to find a family company in the heart of wine country that could produce authentic, quality wines. The Trinchero family is the right fit, and the wines are delicious.”

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. Now, along with his two sons, Emilio & Mario and his daughter Elaine, they are continuing the family’s commitment to handcrafting award-winning, old-world-style wines that are true to their terroir. Today, the wines are enjoyed by ST. HELENA their friends and acclaimed by their peers. Varozza CHARLES The winery’s total production KRUG RATT P is less than 900 cases and includes Estate Cabernet DAVID FULTON Calafia Cellars N FULTO Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir, BERINGER ONA MADR Chardonnay, Petite Sirah, Materra Tamber Bey Semillon, rosé and port-style Orin Swift MS ADA Covenant dessert wine made predominantly St. Helena Wine Center PE from Tempranillo.

The International ‘East Meets West’ Wine Challenge
International Eastern Wine Competition vs. West Coast Wine Competition
Vineyard & Winery Management has combined two of its oldest and most established wine competitions into one by creating the first International “East Meets West” Wine Challenge, to be held February 19-20 in Sonoma County. Wines will simultaneously be judged in two established regional divisions: the International Eastern Wine Competition and the West Coast Wine Competition. Traditional awards will be given in each division. Best of Show winners will move on to compete in the East Meets West Taste Off to see which wine is best overall. This affords each entrant two chances to win medals: one in its own division and one in the Taste Off. Established in 1982, the West Coast Wine Competition has annually recognized wines produced and bottled in the West. The International Eastern Wine Competition, started in 1975, is one of the oldest and longest-running wine competitions in the nation. “We decided to let the momentum of these two competitions work in tandem while folding in a new marketing element,” according to Vineyard & Winery Management Director of Wine Competitions Debra Del Fiorentino. “Our customers not only know these established brands, but budget well ahead of time to enter. Keeping the competition brands intact and adding a twist like the East Meets West Taste Off puts an exciting spin on the challenge while keeping the competition fresh,” says Del Fiorentino. A long-standing component of the International Eastern Wine Competition has been its Riesling Championship. Rieslings will now be judged in both divisions to award a best Eastern Riesling and Western Riesling. The deadline for entry is January 31. This challenge is open to all domestic and internationally produced wines according to regional designations explained on the challenge website. See www.winecompetitions.com for details. Entries may be made at www.winecompetitions.com or www.enofileonline.com. Based in Santa Rosa, Vineyard & Winery Management is an independently owned and operated multimedia company that produces an international wine trade publication, conferences, trade shows and wine competitions. The family-owned company publishes Vineyard & Winery Management magazine, which has the highest circulation of any North American wine trade publication. V&WM’s conferences and trade shows include Wineries Unlimited and the Midwest Grape and Wine Conference. Its wine competitions include The Press Democrat North Coast Wine Challenge, Grand Harvest Awards, East Meets West Wine Challenge, International Women’s Wine Competition, International Wine Channel TV Awards, and U.S. National Wine Competition.

Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon or the All 18000 Old Winery Rd, Sonoma 800.926.1266 She Wrote Port. www.buenavistawinery.com “When the weather began to cool off, coupled with the completed harvest that took the grapes off the vines, our daily vineyard tours lost a little of their luster,” said Phyllis Hyland, Director of Hospitality for Meadowcroft Wines. “Rather than fight the elements, we decided to bring the fun into the tasting room with several wine and food options presented in both a tasty and educational setting to learn more about wine and the many flavors that work with it.” Le Belge Chocolates are handcrafted in Napa and are created in the French chocolate making tradition by award winning Master Chocolatier Chef Sebastian Beline of Paris. Known for producing distinctive chocolates, Chef Beline has perfected a balance of flavor and texture to produce an unparalleled chocolate experience. The Meadowcroft Wines menu includes the Meadowcroft, Thomas Henry and Foyt Family labels. The tasting room is located within the Cornerstone Sonoma complex that features 24 world-class gardens, a restaurant, art galleries and cutting-edge design shops all set among acres of vineyards. Meadowcroft Wines is open daily from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The venue is available for private parties, private tastings, wine dinners and other events. For information, call (707) 934-4090.

WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK | MENDOCINO/LAKE COUNTIES

Three Newly Released Pinot Noirs from Harmonique
Harmonique Wine owners Bruce and Moira Conzelman announced the opening of a new Tasting Room, showcasing the recent release of three gracefully aged Harmonique Anderson Valley Pinot Noir wines: 2007 The Noble One, 2007 Elegancé, and 2007 Delicacé. “We are pleased to be presenting our wines in the charming town of Boonville in Anderson Valley,” said Conzelman. The Harmonique Tasting Room is centrally situated in the John Hanes Fine Art Gallery, among a collection of original paintings and sculptures, across from the Boonville Hotel. Harmonique is a partnership between owner Bruce Conzelman and Claudia Springs winemaker Robert Klindt. “The name Harmonique recognizes our desire to create wines that harmonize with many foods and evoke a sense of their French Burgundian heritage,” remarked Conzelman. “Our wines are released only when we believe they have reached a prime level of maturity and are ready to be enjoyed in all their elegance and complexity. With proper cellaring, they can continue to age well for a decade or more after release.”

Harmonique 2007 Delicacé, Anderson Valley Pinot Noir
The core of this wine is the 2A clone from the Ferrington Vineyard, imparting bright red fruit notes and suppleness, rounded out with the deeper fruit flavors of the Klindt Vineyard Dijion clone 777 and the Conzelman Vineyard old block Pommard clone. The Delicacé opens with red fruit aromas of strawberry and spice. Delicate strawberry flavors echo the nose, with hints of rhubarb and

pomegranate. Firm acidity contributes to the bright fruit; a lingering finish follows a full, rich mouth feel. Harmonique 2007 The Noble One, Anderson Valley Pinot Noir – Fruit from the Klindt Vineyard (clones 115, 777 and Pommard) and the Wiley Vineyard (clones 115 and Pommard) create a bold and juicy offering. Aromas of black cherry, spice and a hint of molasses grace the nose. Rich flavors reflect notes of dark berry, cola and clove. Hints of orange zest complete the complex finish. Harmonique 2007 Elegancé, Anderson Valley Pinot Noir – The 2A clone from the Ferrington Vineyard provide red fruit notes and suppleness; the Klindt and Wiley Vineyards provide dark fruit flavors. The old-block Pommard, planted in 1986, from the Conzelman Vineyard contribute herb, cherry and spice notes, with good acidity and tannin for structure. The complex flavors of red licorice, cherry and cranberry are held together with firm acidity, leading to a long, satisfying finish. 2007 Vintage in Anderson Valley – The 2007 vintage was ideal in Anderson Valley. The growing season started with spring rains followed by moderate temperatures throughout the summer, allowing the fruit to ripen slowly and retain good acidity. A late season warm spell allowed the grapes to achieve optimal ripeness from late September to early October.

Harmonique Wines and Tasting Room
Harmonique wines are available to purchase in the new tasting room located at 14051 Highway 128, Boonville, located in the Hanes Art Gallery, open Friday through Monday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.; (707) 895-9300. Wines may also be purchased through the website, www.harmoniquewine.com. The Delicacé retail price is $44; The Noble One is $39; and Elegancé is $36. Harmonique also features a popular un-oaked Chardonnay in very limited quantities for $39. Gina Schock is the new Tasting Room Manager. She formerly worked at Goldeneye for 10 years, helping to open their tasting room. “Tasting is complimentary and library wines are also available to purchase,” said Gina. “We are offering our visitors a beautiful, luminous space to discover these wine gems.”

Visit the Mountains for Christmas Pines, Holiday Wines

At the Summit to Sea Wineries, buy three bottles or more and get an adorable cork ornament, while supplies last. Burrell School and Loma Prieta are located near many Christmas tree farms, where you can traipse through the rows looking for the perfect gem to grace your home. If you’re not much into dealing with mechanical saws, head to The Summit Store, where you’ll find pre-cut fresh trees, along with all your holiday needs, from Diestel turkeys to giftwrap. Their selection of local wines is unmatched and they’ll be offering special holiday case prices. holidays. Add a box of Love Bites and the whole deal is $65.

Holiday Wine Gift Ideas
Without a doubt, wine is one of the most popular gifts given during the holidays. Probably the most appreciated gift, especially if you don’t really know the recipient’s tastes, is that of sparkling and/or dessert wines. These are always popular at parties and there are very few people who would turn down a really well-made dessert or port-style wine. Highly recommended are the Burrell School “Chaperone,” which is a late harvest Chardonnay that tastes like baked apples; the Fernwood Cellars 2010 “Klammer” Red Dessert Wine, made from Zin and Riesling, a red raspberry delight; the Fernwood Cellars 2010 Late Harvest Riesling, a lively wine, not at all sweet and lovely with white figs, goat cheese and marcona almonds; the Guglielmo “Eredita” Special Family Reserve Port, a classic ruby style port which is made from traditional Portuguese varietals and handsomely packaged; and finally, the Loma Prieta 2009 St. Amant Port, also of Portuguese varieties, which intrigues with aromas and flavors of warm baked brownies, fig bars, fresh-brewed coffee and gingerbread cookies. Burrell School Vineyards will be offering a three-pack on their three dessert wines (they also have a Late Harvest Zin called “Probation,” and a Zin-based port called “Deportment”) for just $59, for the

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.”
