INTELLIGENCE FOR THE WINE CONSUMER
BY LEN NAPOLITANO

What makes Chardonnay, or any wine, taste different among producers?
The foremost reason is climate. Grapes grown in a cool climate retain a higher level of acidity than the same grape variety grown in a warm climate. High acidity produces a crisp freshness on the palate, whereas the warm climate grapes lose most of their acidity but develop more sugar. Higher sugar means higher alcohol potential. Higher alcohol adds weight to the wine, lending an impression of sweetness. Chardonnay, for example, grown in these two disparate environments may produce two very different wine styles. This difference in crispness verses weightiness is a difference in mouthfeel, a combination of viscosity with astringency or acidity. Vineyard soils also vary greatly throughout California and around the world. Chalk, limestone, clay, sand, gravel, loam, mineral components or volcanic deposits in soils each make unique contributions to wine. Grapes grown in the gravel, sand, loam, and volcanic-deposit soils of the Rutherford area of California’s Napa Valley are said to produce wines with an identifiable “Rutherford dust” character, described as a unique herbaceous spiciness. The limestone-rich soil of the Chablis region in France is a big reason why Chardonnay grapes harvested there produce wines of a steely, flinty quality. Also, the use of oak in fermentation or the aging process brings more presence to a wine’s mouthfeel, along with sweet flavor and aroma. Choose an “un-oaked” Chardonnay, for example, if you prefer a crisp, lighter mouthfeel. If you like a soft, buttery style with a hint of vanilla, look for Chardonnay aged with at least 40% new oak, or made using one or all of these processes: • Barrel-fermented: Chardonnay fermented inside an oak barrel absorbs toasted oak compounds from the barrel as fermentation progresses, mostly adding weight to the wine but also a touch of sweet aroma. • Aged-on-the-Lees: Lees are tiny dead yeast cells that settle at the bottom of a wine barrel, or tank, after fermentation is complete. About every other week during aging, they are manually stirred to mix more with the wine and create a rich, creamy mouthfeel. • Malolactic Fermentation: ML is a secondary fermentation, caused by injecting the wine with a natural lactic acid bacteria that converts tart, apple-like acid into softer, milk-like acid, creating Chardonnay with a rounder mouthfeel.

BY JOSH STEIN

Trellising: Shaping Wines Before the Grapes
Every grape vine pretty much looks like every other one, right? Well, while driving past them it may seem to be the case, but the truth is small differences in the shape of the vines can have major impacts on wine quality, yield, bouquet, taste and mouthfeel. Believe it or not, the shape the grapes are grown within has a major but often unrecognized impact on what ends up in your glass. Trellising is dirty, un-sexy work, but it’s the lifeblood of growing great wines. The canopy is what converts “sunlight into wine,” so it’s vital on many levels. Each style of trellising has to take into account a number of variables along the way to creating a structure which allows for vine balance; that’s what’s key to producing grapes with lots of flavor without damaging the vine or its roots through stress, over- or undercropping, or mismatching vine to location. These options include number of shoots per vine, number of leaves per shoot, number of clusters per shoot, orientation toward the sun, shading of the grapes via the canopy and the overall shape of the canopy, which is determined by the guidewires of the trellis. There are dozens of possible combinations in commercial use today. There are two basic kinds of trellising, though, vis-à-vis various ways of positioning the shoots vertically to maximize access to sunlight while maintaining less vigorous growth in poor, infertile soils, or different styles of dividing the canopy vertically or horizontally to control for vigorous growth in soil too-good for grapevines. What? I sense you thinking: How can soil be too good? Everything you’ve absorbed about growing things the “right” way is the opposite for winegrowing. Soil that is too good encourages excess leaves and excess fruit. The former stresses the vine and keeps it from putting its energy into the grapes. The latter dilutes the flavors in the resulting wines. When winegrowers talk about “Balance is key,” that’s what they mean: all of the elements are properly enfolded together. Some of the more common vertical shoot positionings, known generally as “VSP ,” take the forms of candelabra. Guyot divides the vine quite low to the ground, leaving just two canes regrown each year below guidewires, to which shoots will attach themselves. VSP generally makes the arms permanent, allowing for spurs on the arms from which the vertical shoots grow, and Cordon goes one step further with its permanency, with the shoots generally positioned up, over, and then back down so that the clusters are shaded from direct sunlight. In contrast, divided canopy trellising is designed to try to take away excess growth by making the vine work harder for what it does put out. Winegrowers do this by creating more sections with more canes, shoots, and/or cordons. Scott Henry creates multiple vertical canopies, making the vine work twice as hard. “California Sprawl” separates the canopy in two, “flopping” large sections of growth to each side; Lyre uses movable guide arms to open or close the “V” and the flop. Genva Double Curtain creates four cordons for each vine, doubling vine energy needs horizontally in contrast to Scott Henry’s upright, split form. Do the range of options really matter? Absolutely, as the trellis style alone has been shown to have an impact on all levels of wine expression: softening or hardening tannins; adding or removing flavors, aromas and range of ripeness options; effecting yield, concentration and vine life. The term “winegrowing” is a bit of a linguistic oddity, for sure, but as you can see, it’s absolutely appropriate. One of the reasons it’s quite fair to say civilization is wine is that, unlike just about everything else we produce, wine requires our constant attention – even long before a single grape is harvested or a bud breaks. Cheers!

KENDALL JACKSON WINE ESTATE & GARDENS
Renovated and Ready for Visitors
DENISE OLLIFFE

Kendall-Jackson, a family-owned winery, is one of Wine Country’s most recognized brands. Visitors from around the world stop by Kendall-Jackson Wine Estate & Gardens, located conveniently off Highway 101, just north of Santa Rosa. Its stately façade attracts visitors to sample great wines, culinary delights and enjoy tranquil gardens. Recently renovated to focus on the fusion of wine and food, the estate prides itself on being a place to relax and learn. Kendall-Jackson has created a destination for wine lovers and foodies to have a total sensory experience – indoors and out.

The Wine Estate & Gardens
The estate is a garden-lovers delight. Pathways meander through flourishing year-round gardens surrounding the Kendall-Jackson Wine Estate. Thoughtfully crafted hedges and annuals abound. Guests are welcome to take a self-guided tour through abundant sensory gardens to learn the nose of Kendall-Jackson’s wines, as well as discover trellising techniques used to grow K-J varietals. It’s also a great photo op. Each garden bed has specific “descriptors” and “affinities” planted for red and white wines. For instance, to help describe Sauvignon Blanc in a meaningful way, the garden has melon, fig, pear, grapefruit, lemon, gooseberries, dill and olive descriptors planted, as well as lavender, rosemary, chilies, horseradish, cilantro, lemon grass affinities. Being able to see, smell and touch these plantings, helps visitors to understand the aromas and flavors they should pick up from each wine. Each garden has signage, for easy identification. The state-of-the-art culinary center at Kendall-Jackson Wine Estate, ran by executive chef Justin Wangler, utilizes the herbs, vegetables and flowers from the working gardens, providing visitors choosing food and wine pairing sessions with fresh-picked, seasonal tastes created specifically to pair with wines being served. Tucker Taylor, the estate’s Culinary Garden Manager is in the process of planting massive, working vegetable and herb gardens, and patios, where garden parties and events will be held. Guests will be able to see chefs pluck fresh ingredients to be used in the cuisine being served – a real farm-to-table experience.

WINEMAKER PROFILE

NORI NAKAMURA
Jamieson Ranch Vineyards
BY ALEXANDRA CHARSLEY

Open 10 am to 5 pm daily 1 Kirkland Ranch Road, Napa (707) 254-8673 | www.jamiesonranch.com

Jamieson Ranch Vineyards lies at the southern tip of Napa Valley overlooking the serene countryside and is surrounded by more than 300 acres of rolling hills and vineyards. Specializing in Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, their wines capture the unique character and style of the winery’s surroundings. Being Winemaker at Jamieson Ranch allows Nori Nakamura to bring his extensive knowledge to create wines with broad appeal that over-deliver on terms of taste, balance and elegance, but that are drinkable on a daily basis. Nori was born and raised in Tokyo, Japan. He was influenced by wine at a young age since his uncle owned an Italian restaurant and was able to experience the knowledge of great wine. After graduating from Keio University with a degree in Economics he started his career at a hotel management company, Hotel Nikko. One of the biggest reasons he worked for a hotel was to learn about wine. He earned a sommelier certification with Japan Sommelier Association before transferring from Tokyo to California to assume the role of catering manager at the prestigious Hotel Nikko San Francisco. Since he had many opportunities to visit local wineries in Napa and Sonoma, he came to enjoy California wines and his interest in wine grew and leaned towards making wine rather than tasting wine. A year later he decided to alter his career and study winemaking. He went back to Japan to give up his hotel job and returned to California, and experienced two harvests at KovesNewlan and Pine Ridge in Napa. After obtaining a second bachelor degree of Viticulture and Enology at UC Davis, he worked at Napa Wine Company and Artesa Vineyards and Winery, where he benefited from observing a variety of winemaking styles. He handles every aspect of the winemaking process to continue making highly acclaimed wines that speak for themselves. Enjoy their three latest releases of award winning wines in a specially tailored wine tasting experience. The 2013 Reata “Aurelius” California White Blend has lifted aromas of orange blossom and spices abound from this artful blend of Muscat Blanc and Viognier. The 2012 Reata “Egan Vineyard” Carneros Chardonnay is a sophisticated Chardonnay with a rich entry, layered citrus and tropical fruit flavors, and delicate oak notes contributing nuance and complexity. The 2012 Jamieson Ranch Coombsville Cabernet Sauvignon has intense dark berry flavors on the palate giving way to a seamless and silky texture with well-integrated oak for a delicate finish. Jamieson Ranch Vineyards is pleased to present one of the most innovative offerings in wine country; refillable wine growlers from their wine-on-tap program. Environmentally friendly, these stylish, branded vessels hold one liter of hand-crafted Cabernet Sauvignon, Carneros Chardonnay or Pinot Noir. There’s no better way to ensure your favorite wines are always on-hand.

The Napa Valley’s most innovative performing arts and event destination has added a new, tasty element that will further elevate and complete the experience at the venue. Noted Chef Cindy Pawlcyn will now provide her world-renowned cuisine at performances and events at the Napa Valley Performing Arts Center at Lincoln Theater in Yountville. And, Cindy Pawlcyn Napa Valley will add the Lincoln Theater to their exclusive list of venues utilized for their discerning clientele. Cindy Pawlcyn Catering & Special Events will serve as the Culinary Partner for the Napa Valley Performing Arts Center at Lincoln Theater, managing the concessions and catering the venue’s events, as announced today by Pawlcyn, Cindy Pawlcyn Napa Valley’s Managing Director Sean Knight and the Performing Arts Center’s Executive Director Michael Madden and General Manager Patricia Moskowite. “This partnership with Cindy, Sean and their extraordinary team is a very significant strategic growth step for us,” said Madden, “Adding the Cindy Pawlcyn experience to our innovative and diverse programming, instantly transforms us from being just a magnificent theater with great entertainment and education into a world-class wine country destination complete with world-class entertainment, world-class wine and world-class cuisine within one world-class venue.” “Being a part of the new direction for the Napa Valley Performing Arts Center at Lincoln Theater is very exciting and very gratifying,” Pawlcyn added, “Not only is it a good business opportunity for us, it’s also great for our community and for the performing arts, both of which are passions that Sean and I share.” “Anyone who knows Cindy, knows that she has always been very community-minded, it is reflected in the way she comports herself everyday as well as in her commitment to local and sustainable food,” said Knight, “We strongly believe in the Performing Arts Center’s mission, and are very impressed by what they have been able to do in less than a year. We are looking forward to being a part of their continued growth.” Master Chef Cindy Pawlcyn established her distinctive style and her commitment to local, seasonal, sustainable, globally inspired wine country cuisine, gracious service and creating unforgettable occasions in 1983 with the opening of the now-legendary Mustards Grill. In addition to Mustards, Pawlcyn currently has two other of Napa Valley’s most sought-after restaurants (Cindy’s Backstreet Kitchen and Cindy Pawlcyn’s Wood Grill & Wine Bar), and is getting raves for her most recent endeavor, Cindy’s Waterfront at the Monterey Bay Aquarium (where she also serves as their Culinary Partner and strong advocate for their important Seafood Watch program.

CHATEAU ADORÉ
BY SUE STRAIGHT, THE WINE WENCH®

Open from 12 to 5 p.m. Friday through Sunday or by appointment 4080 Old Redwood Highway, Santa Rosa The facility is available to rent for private parties. (707) 548-3979 | www.jjcustomwines.com.

Chateau Adoré is conveniently located just north of Santa Rosa on Old Redwood Highway, down the road from Willi’s Wine Bar – in my humble opinion, one of the best restaurants in Sonoma County – and is easily accessible from Highway 101. When you pull up to the winery, your first impression is of lots of white latticework at the gate. The white lattice theme is continued with a large white trellis-like structure, which shades the picnic area. A goodly handful of black wrought iron picnic tables and chairs are scattered about under the trellis, creating a relaxing, welcoming ambience. Visitors are encouraged to bring a picnic, grab a bottle or six of wine and relax and stay a while. Once inside the winery and tasting room is where visitors may see (and taste) what makes Chateau Adoré different from other local wineries. A long, granite-topped tasting bar spans the back of the room. A variety of wines and medals from various wine competitions are proudly displayed around the room. The overall atmosphere is bright, cheerful and colorful. Let’s talk about the wines – The 2012 Chateau Adoré Chardonnay is varietally correct, with abundant aromas and flavors of baked apple, citrus and buttered toast, all wrapped up in a juicy, richly textured mouthfeel. The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon is a steal at only $28! It has mouthwatering aromas of black cherry, spice and cedar, which continue as flavors in the luscious, silky mouth.

Open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. 277 St. Helena Hwy (Hwy. 29) South St. Helena, CA 94574 (707) 963-3104 ext. 4208 | info@sutterhome.com | www.sutterhome.com

Families made the Napa Valley what it is today, and the Trinchero family have been one of the most important in driving the wine industry forward over the last eighty years. Even if you don’t recognize their name, it’s a sure bet you’ve tried their wines as they are the second-largest family-owned winery in the United States, and the foundation of their business is Sutter Home and its Victorian’s unfussy elegance on Highway 29. Sutter Home has been a Valley staple for decades for a very simple reason: they produce what people like! A victim, like so many others in the Valley, of Prohibition, the winery was purchased and brought back to life by the Trincheros in 1948. In order to make it work, each family member took on daily responsibilities, ranging from Mother Mary’s keeping of the books to siblings Vera’s and Roger’s handling of bottling to the tank cleaning done by Father Mario, Uncle John and eldest sibling Bob. It was Bob, via his accidental creation of White Zinfandel more than forty years ago, who most shifted the winery’s direction, highlighting the need for Napa Valley wines of and for the people. Since then, Sutter Home has been at the forefront of high quality, affordable wines, as evidenced by the success of their various Moscato releases over the last few years. The tasting room reflects this vision of past and future, giving insight into the Valley’s

history while showcasing the fun of today’s world of wine. Two dozen bottlings of Sutter Home wines are currently available, and there truly is something, or more than one!, for everyone’s tastes. Fruity whites abound, including Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, Gewürztraminer, Moscato, Pinot Grigio, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc and White Merlot. Reds bottlings aren’t ignored, either, and include Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir and Zinfandel. Sweet wines get their due, as well, with Red Moscato, Sweet Red and Sweet Whites, and the justly famous White Zinfandel. The Pink series is amply represented, too, with Pink Moscato and Pinot Grigio and lovers of the bubbles have been taken care of with Bubbly Moscato and Bubbly Pink Moscato. Plus, there are limited release wines available only from the winery directly, including the “Retro” series of Muscat of Alexandria, Pinot Grigio, and Zinfandel; Reserve White Zinfandel; Proprietors Series Zinfandel Port and Triple Cream Sherry. Sutter Home Family Vineyards has always been a leader in pairing great food with great wine. In fact, this is the 24th anniversary of the Sutter Home Build a Better Burger recipe contest, in which ten recipe creators are flown to Napa for a cook-off judged by some of the country’s top chefs. Sutter Home also works extensively to support breast cancer awareness, pairing with City of Hope to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for research, treatment and education; their series of Pink wines have clearly helped to spread the message far and wide as their Home for Hope program has raised more than $800,000 to date. As you can see, Sutter Home really is more than a winery. It’s more than a Valley institution or even the family which revived it. It’s an attitude about how to live and enjoy life, making great wines which make consumers smile, and taking care of the community so it takes care of you. Head up Highway 29 and go visit and taste why the Trincheros and Sutter Home have been so successful for so long – you’ll be glad you did. Enjoy!

The Rhone Rangers Celebrate Craftsmanship at the Largest Tasting of American Rhone Wines
Craneway Pavilion, Ford Point, Richmond, April 6, 2014
The Rhone Rangers are moving across San Francisco Bay to the spectacular and historic Craneway Pavilion at Ford Point, for the 17th Annual Bay Area Grand Tasting on Sunday, April 6, 2014. The day will celebrate the craftsmanship of 100+ American winemakers who will pour over four hundred Rhone-varietal wines. Guests will be able to enjoy spectacular views of the bay and city skyline from the recently renovated architectural gem built more than 80 years ago by Henry Ford as an assembly plant for automobiles. Small plates of iconic American fare will be available from Assemble Restaurant, under the direction of Richard Mazzera, an alumnus of Chez Panisse and the owner of Cesar in Berkeley. Over 2,000 wine lovers and members of the trade and media are expected to attend the Rhone Rangers tasting. Tickets are now on sale at: www.rhonerangers.org. “The move to the Craneway Pavilion provides us with a worldclass venue, breathtaking views of San Francisco Bay, and greater accessibility with improved parking, highway access and public transit options for our attendees,” explained David Gates, President of the Rhone Rangers Board of Directors. Private ferry service will be available for our San Francisco-based fans for a safe and fun way to travel to-and-from the event. For those who would prefer to use BART we will provide round-trip complimentary shuttle service to the Craneway from the El Cerrito BART Station. There are also thousands of parking spaces available for attendees who will be traveling by car from the North Bay, East Bay, Sacramento and South Bay. “My vision for the renovation of Ford Point, including the stunning Craneway Pavilion was to utilize the award winning architecture of Albert Kahn and offer the ultimate San Francisco Bay

x

Area special event venue, perfect for food and wine events.” The Rhone Rangers wine event adds to the realization of this vision and we are thrilled that they have chosen the Craneway as the new home for their signature Bay Area event,” said Eddie Orton, Orton Development Inc. Orton undertook the $40 million restoration of the historic Ford Assembly Plant several years ago to create a state-of-theart event center that would capitalize on its landmark architecture and unique waterfront site to attract dynamic events to the East Bay. Tickets are now on sale and the public is invited to purchase them online at www.rhonerangers.org. For more information, call 1-800467-0163.

Blend Your Own Custom Wines with Judd’s Hill
Visiting Napa Valley is always a treat. And as great as it is to sample offerings from some of the world’s most popular wineries, we’ve discovered a wine country excursion that may be even better… crafting your own personal Napa Valley Cuvee! In 2009, the Finkelstein family of Judd’s Hill had the forwardthinking idea of creating a “Bottle Blending Day Camp” experience (BBDC for short), during which visitors to their winery, located at the southern end of Napa’s Silverado Trail, can actually craft their own, personal, Napa Valley Bordeaux-style blend. The wines used for this blending experience currently include barrel lots of two Cabernet Sauvignons, each from a different vineyard, plus a Merlot and Cabernet Franc, all from Napa Valley’s extraordinary 2012 vintage. Judd’s Hill specializes in making small lots of hand-crafted wines for their Judd’s Hill label, and for dozens of their Custom MicroCrush clients. It can take years to convert clusters of grapes into a ready-todrink bottle of red wine. Blending finished wine, however, is a vital part of the wine making process that can be accomplished in a relatively short time. These BBDC experiences are led by extremely knowledgeable and passionate wine educators and take about two hours to complete.

Play Winemaker for a Day!

During the session, a wine educator will guide blenders through the intricacies of creating a wine best suited to the tastes of the blender, explaining and demystifying the process along the way. Once a favored cuvée has been decided upon and a name is chosen, the newly minted wine-blenders will complete the process by handbottling, labeling and “spinning” foil capsules over the bottle necks. The wine is then ready to take home the same day! The Bottle Blending Day Camp at Judd’s Hill has several options: $225 enables you to take home three finished bottles of wine; $395 results in six bottles; $695 is a 12-bottle adventure. A 24 case, full barrel option, is also available (bottling will be at later date). Sessions can be scheduled for any day of the week, and 24 hours advanced notice is usually sufficient for groups a large as eight. The Judd’s Hill BBDC experience is also a great outing for larger groups ranging in size from 10-100. And if you don’t have time to blend while you’re in wine country you can swing by the winery or go to juddshill.com and pick up their new “BBDC Home Edition” blending kit. It comes complete with everything you need to host your own blending party in your own home. Reservations can be made by calling the winery at (707) 255-2332 or visiting their website at www.juddshill.com.

We invite you to enjoy our wines responsibly. © 2014 Sterling Vineyards, Calistoga, CA

If you are first-time visitor to the Napa Valley, Sterling Vineyards is a must-see destination. Plan on spending a few hours and enjoy jaw-dropping views of the valley, an aerial tram ride, a self-guided winery tour, warm hospitality staff and beautifully crafted wines. Sterling Vineyards is a family-friendly winery that brings the best of the Napa Valley to the table. Ground breaking began at Sterling in 1971, and was the vision of Peter Newton, a British international paper broker who started the project in 1964. The beautiful winery design was inspired by the Mediterranean style structures seen on the Greek Island of Mykonos. A unique addition was an aerial tram to take visitors up to the hilltop winery. The self-guided tour is one of the best in the valley. As you make your way through the winery, you will see the entire facility highlighted with video screens to help you learn how wine is made. You will also taste some great wines and enjoy incredible vistas of the Napa Valley. Be sure and bring your camera! Something new at the winery is the opportunity for a food and wine pairing on the beautiful South View Terrace. Enjoy wine by the glass paired with a lovely charcuterie platter for two with locally sourced cheese, meat and fruit. And, the wines are spectacular! Sterling Vineyards newest release, 2010 Napa Valley Platinum, received a score of 91 points from Robert Parker. Be sure to try the 2012 Malvasia Bianca which is a semi-sweet, refreshing Greek grape varietal which pairs beautifully with spicy foods. Sterling also offers five different wine clubs so that you can get their limitedproduction wines shipped to you four times a year. The Sterling Silver Experience is not to be missed. This package includes the aerial tram ride and self-guided tour followed by a seated wine-tasting experience featuring single vineyard and limited-release wines in several exclusive tasting rooms which include outdoor seating. The Silver Experience also gives guests special access to the upper level of the winery where one can view exhibits from the Sterling Art Collection including pieces by Picasso, Chagall, Renoir and Ansel Adams.

9th Annual Pigs and Pinot, March 21 & 22
Featuring culinary stars and wine experts from around the world and raising significant funds for Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry Campaign and local Sonoma County charities
Chef Charlie Palmer will take over wine country with top food and wine talent by his side for the Ninth Annual Pigs and Pinot Weekend sponsored in part by Visa Signature® – the preferred card for Pigs & Pinot. Held at the award-winning Hotel Healdsburg and its acclaimed restaurant, Dry Creek Kitchen – located in serene Healdsburg where the celebrated appellations of Alexander Valley, Dry Creek Valley and Russian River Valley converge – this charitable celebration has become a coveted event amongst pork and wine enthusiasts eager to experience the creations of over 60 wineries and more than 20 chefs who showcase their talents each year. This year’s participating pork authorities include: Amanda Freitag, Chef/Owner Empire Diner and Food Network TV Personality; Bryan Voltaggio, Chef/Owner VOLT and RANGE and Top Chef Masters Runner-Up; Frank Crispo, Chef/Owner Crispo Restaurant; and Philippe Rispoli, Chef/Owner PB Boulangerie Bistro. To guide guests on an illuminating red wine experience, the featured Pinot pros include: Michael Browne, CIRQ; Pierre Emmanuel, Domaine Pierre Gelin; Jesse Katz (Pinot Cup 2013 winner) and Bill Foley, Roth and TeKairanga; Tom Rochioli, Rochioli Vineyards & Winery; and Mike Weersing, Pyramid Valley Vineyards. And finally, the weekend wouldn’t be complete without the foodloving, celebrity comedian and actor serving as emcee, judge and keep-us-on-our-toes participant: Mario Cantone, actor and comedian. The 2014 Pigs & Pinot event presents a stimulating line-up of food and wine seminars, tastings and cook-offs, with all net proceeds benefitting Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign to end childhood hunger in America, as well as local Sonoma County scholarships and charities. The event is supported by sponsors including: Visa Signature, DCS Appliances by Fisher & Paykel, Encore Events, Fiji Water and Relish Culinary Adventures, as well as participating wineries and restaurants, which help to make this weekend celebration possible. A complete list of our sponsors can be found by visiting www.PigsandPinot.com. “At last year’s Pigs & Pinot celebration, we raised over $130,000. Each year this event – and the demand to be a part of it – grows exponentially,” says Chef Charlie Palmer.

2014 PIGS & PINOT WEEKEND LINE-UP
FRIDAY, MARCH 21ST Taste of Pigs & Pinot; 6:30-9pm Friday evening’s kickoff event is the lively Taste of Pigs & Pinot where guests sample 60 highly-acclaimed Pinot Noir wines competing in the Pinot Cup competition, both from Sonoma County and around the world. This year two Rosé wines will be offered in addition to the lineup of Pinot Noirs treating guests to a “white wine” twist on Pinot Noir. Tastings are served alongside a variety of pork dishes, including homemade sausages, charcuterie, grilled pork, pates and other special creations from Chef Palmer and Dry Creek Kitchen Chef de Cuisine Dustin Valette, guest celebrity chefs and local Healdsburg restaurants. SATURDAY, MARCH 22ND Tournament of the Pig; 10:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Pigs & Pinot guest chefs will be divided into two talent-packed teams. Charlie Palmer and actor and comedian Mario Cantone will host this iron-chef style competition so guests can once again expect some lively commentary! The two teams will be given a whole pig, which they will use to create two distinct dishes, along with ingredients they can find at Dry Creek Kitchen. A pork-loving panel of judges will determine the winning team. And yes, the audience gets to taste, too! Ultimate Pinot Smack Down; 1:00 p.m.-3:00 p.m. Join Master Sommeliers Keith Goldston, Fred Dame, Drew Hendricks and Michael Jordan for this exciting March Madness inspired wine seminar. Each Master Sommelier enters the room with his personal selection of four Pinot Noirs from around the world and proceeds to “sell” his favorites in this lively head-to-head pitch contest, which includes blind tastings where the audience picks the winner. Pigs & Pinot Gala Dinner; 6:30 p.m. Saturday evening’s Pigs & Pinot Gala features a sumptuous five-course dinner at Hotel Healdsburg’s Dry Creek Kitchen. As a collaborative offering, each course features a signature creation from Palmer and his guest chefs including: Amanda Freitag, Bryan Voltaggio, Frank Crispo and Philippe Rispoli. Every course will be paired with two limited-production Pinot Noirs from highly acclaimed wineries including CIRQ, Domaine Pierre Gelin, Roth & TeKairanga, Rochioli Vineyards & Winery and Pyramid Valley Vineyards. Spoonbar’s Swine & Wine Dinner; 7:00 p.m. at h2hotel Spain comes to Sonoma on Saturday evening with a fabulous four-course dinner from fellow Top Chef  2013 contestants Chef Louis Maldonado and Chef Carrie Mashaney. For this menu, the duo will be playing up one of Spain’s favorite ingredients – pork – and pairing dishes with two of Sonoma County’s premier Pinot Noirs at this casual chic dinner in h2hotel’s Green Room. Pigs & Pinot Late Night is a late evening celebration following the Gala and Spoonbar’s Swine & Wine Dinner with after-dinner drinks and dessert at Hotel Healdsburg’s Spirit Bar and fireside lounge. All Pigs & Pinot celebrants are welcome to attend.

8th Annual California’s Artisan Cheese Festival Announces Event Lineup For March 21-23
Tickets now on sale for weekend’s events including local farm tours, grand tasting events, beer, cider & wine pairings and brunch with a surprise celebrity chef
The nation’s premier cheese and wine event, California’s Artisan Cheese Festival, is back for its eighth year, March 21-23, at the Sheraton Sonoma County in Petaluma. Celebrating all things cheese, the festival brings together artisan cheesemakers, authors, chefs, brewers, wineries and enthusiastic guests for three days of cheese tasting, learning and celebration. Throughout the weekend, guests will have the opportunity to experience new, limited-production, and rare artisan cheeses and learn about the art of making cheese, while supporting California farmers and cheesemakers in their ongoing effort to advance sustainability. The weekend will include seminars, pairings, tastings, farm tours, hands-on cheese-making classes and cheese-focused demonstrations. Tickets are now on sale and available through www.artisancheesefestival.com. Additional details and events will be added in the coming weeks, so check back frequently for updates. “California’s Artisan Cheese Festival is a much-anticipated, cheeselover’s paradise that allows guests to see every step of the farm-to-table process of cheesemaking,” said Festival Executive Director Judy Groverman Walker. “From farm tours where people can interact with the animals and meet the cheesemakers to tastings, hands-on classes and culinary demos, there truly is something for everyone.” Those interested can also follow updates by “liking” the Artisan Cheese Festival on Facebook and following the event on Twitter. All events are priced separately and the Sheraton Sonoma County – Petaluma is offering special discounted rates on rooms for festival-goers. To date the Artisan Cheese Festival has contributed more than $55,000 to these nonprofit organizations that work to support the artisan cheesemaking community and its infrastructure in California. For more information, visit www.artisancheesefestival.com.

FRIDAY, MARCH 21 Farm Tours & Lunch Back by popular demand are five intimate farm tours where guests are guided on walking tours of various area farms to meet the cheesemakers, see how the cheeses are made and, of course, taste the fruits of their labor. The tours allow guests to observe every step of the cheesemaking process and interact with cows, sheep, water buffalo and goats in their natural environment. Each tour includes round-trip transportation from the Sheraton Sonoma County, cheese tastings and lunch. A three-course, sit-down lunch is included in Tours A and B at Point Reyes Farmstead Cheese Company’s The Fork with guest chef Louis Maldonado, executive chef at Spoonbar in Healdsburg and Top Chef Contestant; Tour D will stop for an adventurous farm-to-table lunch at Zazu Kitchen & Farm at The Barlow in Sebastopol; and Tour E, an exploration of Petaluma-based cheese talent, will conclude with a beer and cheese-pairing lunch on the patio of Lagunitas Brewery in Petaluma. All other tours will include a delicious box lunch to be enjoyed on site. Cheese is available for purchase on the farm tours. Tickets are $75/$135. Meet the Cheesemakers Reception Guests meet the cheesemakers in person at this evening reception and cheese tasting at the Sheraton Sonoma County from 5 to 7 p.m. More than 20 participating cheesemakers will offer samples of their products, along with artisan wineries and breweries at this informal walk-around reception to kick off the weekend. There is also a “Fantasy Cheese Table” featuring a spectacular cheese display for guests to sample as much as they like. Tickets are $35. SATURDAY, MARCH 22 Seminars, Cooking and Pairing Demonstrations The 2014 event presents a variety of seminars at Sheraton Sonoma County. Seminars from which to choose, giving guests the opportunity to learn from industry experts as they discover new cheeses, learn how to make cheese, cook with different cheeses, experience diverse wine, cider and beer pairings and much, much more. Confirmed instructors include Judy Creighton, an American Cheese Society Certified Cheese Professional (CCP); Janet Fletcher of the San Francisco Chronicle; author and cheese expert Laura Werlin; training and merchandising manager of Atlanta Foods International and American Cheese Society CCP Michael Landis; Mission Cheese owner Sarah Dvorak; Master Cicerone Rich Higgins; and the San Francisco Milk Maid, Louella Hill. The seminars include a catered lunch by Petaluma Market. During the lunch break and after the afternoon seminars authors will be available for book signings. Tickets are $65-95. Grand Cheese Tasting and Best in Cheese Competition In the ultimate culinary challenge at Sheraton Sonoma County from 6 to 9 p.m. Guests taste their way around this event, sampling dishes from 25 of the Bay Area’s best chefs and caterers, each incorporating their favorite locally made cheese into a dish for attendees. Guests cast their vote for their favorite “cheesiest” dish and the winner is announced on-site during this lighthearted and festive competition. Artisan wineries and breweries will be on hand to provide beverages to complement each dish. Tickets are $75. SUNDAY, MARCH 23 Sunday Bubbles and Brunch with Surprise Celebrity Chef Join a surprise celebrity guest chef for Sunday brunch celebrating cheese at every course along with a live cooking demonstration. Tickets include brunch, sparkling wine and coveted early entry into the Artisan Cheese Tasting & Marketplace at 11 a.m. before it opens to the public at 12 p.m. Sunday Bubbles and Brunch takes place at the Sheraton Sonoma County from 9:30 to 11 a.m. Tickets are $115. Artisan Cheese Tasting & Marketplace The grand finale of the festival, the Marketplace, brings together more than 75 artisan cheesemakers, winemakers, brewers and chefs to sample and sell their products directly to attendees in this feast for the senses. Guests can discover the next wave of local, hand-crafted cheeses, boutique wines and artisan-brewed beers as well as interesting cheese products, books and recipes. Each ticket includes entry to the Marketplace, an insulated cheese tote bag and a signature wine glass. Tickets are $45 for adults, $20 for children 12 and under. The Marketplace goes from noon to 4 p.m. at the Sheraton Sonoma County. In between tasting and buying cheeses at the Marketplace, guests are invited to watch several cooking demonstrations conducted by local chefs and cheese experts.

La Follette Launches ‘Barrel To Bottle’ Tasting Experience
Winemaker Guides Guests Through In-Depth Barrel Tasting of Single-Vineyard Chardonnays & Pinot Noirs
La Follette Wines has just introduced a new tasting experience for wine country visitors that takes guests on an in-depth barrel tasting adventure with winemaker Greg La Follette. The La Follette Barrel to Bottle Tour showcases some of La Follette’s finest single-vineyard Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs in a lively journey from barrel aging wine to the finished blend, led by Greg La Follette himself. La Follette hosts guests at his barrel aging cellar where he draws tasting samples of three different Chardonnays and three different Pinot Noirs directly from the barrel. With characteristic enthusiasm and encyclopedic knowledge, La Follette provides a detailed narrative on each barrel sample, describing the differences in vineyard sites, grape clones and even barrel types and coopers. After the barrel tasting, guests join Greg at the La Follette tasting room at The Barlow in Sebastopol for a tasting of finished wines. The Barrel to Bottle Tour offers a rare opportunity to taste unfinished wines alongside the winemaker to get his candid thoughts, personal impressions and unique insights into the art and science of winemaking. The La Follette Barrel to Bottle Tour costs $55 per person ($40 for La Follette Vigneron members) and is available by appointment. To book the La Follette Barrel to Bottle Tour, contact Lisa Gower at the winery at (707) 827-4933 or lisa@lafollettewines.com. La Follette Wines debuted in 2010 and the wines have continued to win accolades from some of the country’s leading sommeliers and wine writers. Both winegrower and winemaker, Greg La Follette works intensely in the vineyard to make wines that are an accurate expression of a place, whether that place is in the Russian River Valley or in the unique Mendocino Ridge appellation. While steeped in the traditions of Burgundy, Greg La Follette’s winemaking pushes the edges of convention. 4080 Old Redwood Highway Santa Rosa, CA 95403 La Follette Wines at The Friday-Sunday 12-5pm or by appt. 888-946-3708 | www.jjcustomwines.com Barlow is located at 180 Morris St., Sebastopol and is open daily from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. The telephone number is (707) 8274933.

Kenwood Vineyards, located in the heart of Sonoma Valley in the town of Kenwood, offers the best in show and wine. Being named one of the top 100 wineries by Wine & Spirits Magazine, Kenwood Vineyards promises a wine tasting and art experience like no other. Founded in 1970, Kenwood Vineyards is a beautiful historic winery with its tasting room housed inside a converted barn that dates back to 1906. For more than 40 years, Kenwood has earned the reputation of producing consistent premium wines, including the collectable trio of reds from the Jack London Vineyard. A fun fact is Kenwood Vineyards has the sole rights to the vineyards of the famous and historic Jack London Ranch. From these fertile grapes, award-winning, limited-production wines are produced. A wolf’s head logo adorns the label on these wines. In addition, Kenwood Vineyards offers wine lovers an extensive portfolio with 13 renowned varietals, such as Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, White Zinfandel, Moscato, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Vintage White and Red Blends, and Sparkling Wine. Since 2003, winemaker Pat Henderson and his winemaking team have received a great number of awards, including the Double Gold and Best of Class at the San Francisco Chronicle Tasting Competition, most recently for the 2013 Sonoma County Sauvignon Blanc and 2011 Sonoma County Merlot. Together, they are dedicated to the small-lot style of winemaking with more than 550 estate-owned acres and using sourced grapes from dozens of sustainably farmed vineyards in Sonoma County’s best appellations. The vineyard grapes are picked separately to preserve its uniqueness and true character. As a result, every bottle of Kenwood Vineyard wine proves delicious. With more than 30 wines on the tasting menu, you will find the perfect wine just for you. Another big draw to the Kenwood winery, besides fine wine is the Kenwood Vineyard Artist Series, a Sonoma County tradition since the 1975 vintage. Back then, local artist David Lance Goines was commissioned to create an original art work for

the first reserve Kenwood Vineyard 1975 Artist Series Cabernet Sauvignon. The concept for the series was to design an inspiring, distinctive label that would showcase an artist’s unique art. Each vintage represents a different work of art, showcasing the true character of the collection. Today, the 2009 Artist Series Cabernet Sauvignon features the work of Markus Linnenbrink, a German contemporary artist, titled “THE STATEYOU’REIN.” Kenwood’s Art, Food and Wine Experience is offered on Sundays from 1 to 3 p.m. Guests are given the opportunity to see original art pieces from the collection that began with the controversial 1975 “Naked Lady,” by David Lance Goines. Inside the bright and contemporary tasting gallery with exquisite art surrounding you, savory appetizers will be paired to bring out the best characteristics of the wine. Reservations are necessary and can be made by calling (707) 2824228. The cost is $30 per person/$25 for wine club members. As you drive up Sonoma Highway 12, you will be guaranteed an amazing experience at Kenwood Vineyards. Lovers of premium wine and fine art will feel at home, knowing they are in one of the top 100 wineries in the vast and beautiful wine country!

KENWOOD VINEYARDS Open Daily from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. 9592 Sonoma Highway, Kenwood www.kenwoodvineyards.com | (707) 833-5891
