INTELLIGENCE FOR THE WINE CONSUMER
BY LEN NAPOLITANO

What is a vineyard-designated wine?
More geographically specific than a wine appellation, or even a sub-AVA, is a vineyard of grape origin. Though not by itself an appellation of origin, if a vineyard is indicated on a label, at least 95% of the grapes must have been grown in that vineyard. The producer of a vineyard-designated, or single-vineyard wine, believes grapes grown there produce a uniqueness deserving of special recognition. It is not required that the vineyard be the producer’s own, as in cases where grapes were purchased from an independent grower who gave permission to state the vineyard’s name on the label. With a successful wine, it’s a winning situation for everyone—vineyard owner, wine producer, and consumer. Napa Valley’s Heitz Cellars was the first California vineyarddesignated commercial wine to reach notable success. In 1966, the Heitz Martha’s Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon (not a reference to the popular Massachusetts summer destination) was that era’s version of thinking outside the box. Today, it’s easy to find wineries making single-vineyard wines. California’s J. Lohr Winery & Vineyards, Wente Vineyards, and Dry Creek Vineyard are three brands with numerous wine selections featuring single vineyard designations. Here’s something to keep in mind: when comparing wine labels that appear identical, but are priced differently, look closely for a vineyard designation. Sometimes it’s easy to miss that subtle distinction, but this detail is important because a single-vineyard wine is often more expensive. Usually, it’s worth spending a little extra because a special vineyard creates a wine of distinction. There is a unique word for distinctiveness derived from the accumulation of one-of-a-kind geographic, geologic, and climatic conditions of a single location. That word is terroir.

BY JOSH STEIN

Why the Weather Matters This Year AND Next
There’s one thing you can count on as a farmer: one year’s weather will never be like any other. What that means in practice is that the past only serves as example, not roadmap. And especially in a year like this one, where none of the established past patterns seem to hold and drought is on the close horizon, how we strategize about the weather and our water use makes the difference between having grapes to make into wine and having to take a pass after two bumper harvests in a row. What makes this doubly fraught is that this year’s decisions affect two years’ crops. Why? Because vines aren’t like other annual, row crops. If you look closely at a vine, you will see both this year’s and next year’s buds, which is why weather damage can be such a problem: a grower is forced to contemplate the loss of multiple years’ income. Inside each bud are really small leaves, and from them come the leaves, canes, shoots and grapes, and each bud has concentric layers, which is why weather damage is along a continuum. Minor damage, generally from frost, may reduce the yield a bit, but it’s the more severe darkening, akin to frostbite, which is the real issue, guaranteeing a crop loss of at least fifty percent, if not more. Equally, the phloem, the “bark” on the exterior of canes and vine trunks, can also be damaged by cold, causing crop losses, too. The best way to understand winegrowing options for weather mitigation is to “walk” through the vineyard throughout the year. Winter cold, even as cold as we got this past year, is actually no issue because the vines are dormant, which is why all fifty states have vineyards. Spring is when weather has the most impact on two years’ crops because the weather often flipflops quite quickly, and rain at an early point can be helpful to bring temperatures up while later in the season causing crop damage via hail or thunderstorms’ winds. Shattering of the bloming flowers can disrupt clusters or keep them from being fertilized, yet when faced with a frost event earlier in the year, rain is welcomed as it brings the temperature up above freezing. summer and fall heat can also be an issue because too-high a temperature can cause vines to shut down, shriveling or even sunburning grapes, and also potentially killing the vine in the process. There are actually lots of options for mitigation, and the best, as you might expect, are set up so as to help solve more than one problem. Believe it or not, something as simple as low trellising versus high has an impact as far as weather goes as low trellises in the wrong locales are more subject to frost damage, and higher trellises can provide shade for adjacent rows. How the trellis is trimmed in winter and early spring prior to budbreak is thus one strategy, and there is projected to be a move back to “California Sprawl” from the VSP “candelabra” currently seen all over as the North Coast replants in the next few years for this reason: not only does this provide different vine growth and brix gains, but it also helps as regards frost or hail damage during April and May, when the buds break and the vines flower. Mechanical options abound, too. The wine machines, those twirling engines and fans on poles; the “Inverted Sinks” or “Air Dams,” which essentially turn the wind machine to provide a frost sink to pull cold air down and away from vines on hillsides and slopes; vertical sprinklers and micro-sprinklers, which can raise the temperature or allow frozen water to encase and protect the vines; and smudge pots, the gas fired heaters for the end of vineyard rows which work in combination with wind machines – all are ways to work in combination with the land to mitigate the negatives of weather while allowing the “terroir,” the locational distinctiveness, to still show through in the grapes and finished wines by “moving the weather” since the vines really cannot. It’s not always easy or cheap, but the results are worth it, no? Enjoy!

MADRIGAL FAMILY WINERY
Twenty Years and Going Strong!
BY JOSH STEIN

“Our 20th anniversary means the continuance of a dream, of my life goal. The challenge was to get here, and it’s an exciting challenge to keep going. 20 years is a testament to the drive we have to continue the dream.” - CHRIS MADRIGAL

Open Daily from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. 3718 St Helena Highway Calistoga, CA 94515 (707) 942-8619 madrigalfamilywinery.com

The celebration of Madrigal Family Winery’s twentieth year proves immigrant dreams blossom with enough time, effort and patience. Chris Madrigal’s grandfather came to Napa in the 1930s, planting forty acres of apples, pears, walnuts and vineyards halfway between St. Helena and Calistoga, the future motherlode of California wine. He was a farmer, and he did what he knew best: grew great fruit for others. Chris’s father, Jess, went one step further and chose to focus on winegrowing, starting the family’s vineyard management company, which today nurtures over 800 valley acres for the family and a range of clients. Chris and his father, in turn, continued the growth of the family’s legacy with the establishment of the winery and its first crush of ten tons of Petite Sirah twenty years ago. The growth since then has helped to cement that legacy as the winery has become well-known for Cabernet Sauvignon, Gewürztraminer, Petite Sirah, Sauvignon Blanc and Zinfandel. Chris puts it best: “Our family history here is a constant source of inspiration and something that guides us in our winemaking. We value the long relationship we’ve had with the land and people here, believing that the combined wisdom of the folks who have lived here for generations and a deep appreciation of these vineyards can be tasted in our wine.” Petite Sirah is the variety through which Madrigal has made its name, and after three generations, they know which special spots in the vineyards nurture the best fruit, which is why in addition to their widely available Napa Valley Petite, they also produce three reserve bottlings from the north end of the Valley, where the grape does best: the Calistoga estate, Barberis and Saviez vineyard wines. The tasting room, with its stunning views of vineyards, lavender and the peaks of the Palisades mountain range, is the only place these wines can be had, and guests can savor their glasses of wine out on the Brazilian ironwood deck. Something really special is lunch with Chris Madrigal himself, enjoying the Madrigal family hospitality at its finest with a private lunch catered from his favorite local deli with an intimate tour of the property while

learning about his family’s history. To that end, May 3rd, 2014 marks the official celebration of the winery’s Twentieth Anniversary, and it is also the sixth annual Heritage Celebration. Such a doubly auspicious occasion demands a good time, and much is planned to make sure it will be. A slew of new releases created under the guidance of Ed Sbragia, consulting winemaker, will be open to taste, and many won’t be publicly available otherwise until later this year: 2013 Mendocino Gewürtzraminer; 2012 Napa Valley Garnacha; 2013 Calistoga Estate Sauvignon Blanc, harder to find these days in the Valley than in decades past; and 2012 Napa Valley Tempranillo and Viognier, both very difficult to find in Napa. “Collaborating with Ed is so exciting and enables Madrigal to take advantage of everything the vineyards have to offer,” remarks Chris Madrigal. Additionally, bottlings of the 2011 Merlot and “Nuestra Sangre” Blend, the latter named by a wine club member, will both be open, too. There will also be barrel tastings of several 2012 reds: Über Cabernet, Sonnet #63 and Cabernet Franc. A fiesta without food and music simply isn’t done, so popular band LaTiDo will provide the tunes and a special paella by the Cooking Channel-featured Paella Del Reyes will fill the belly. If you can’t make the party, don’t worry, as the winery already has its next big event on the drawing board: save the date now for September 13th’s Harvest Party from noon till four. Clearly, no matter which number you choose – eighty years, twenty years or six years – Madrigal Family Winery is going strong. With a firm grasp of where they’ve come from and where they’re headed, the three generations of Madrigal winegrowing efforts have mirrored what the best of fine wines always do: only gotten better with age. Do yourself a favor and stop on in for exclusive, small-lot releases which sing the praises of the land and the folks who’ve been caring for it for quite some time. You’ll be glad you did – salud!

FERRARICARANO VINEYARDS & WINERY
BY SUE STRAIGHT, THE WINE WENCH® Enoteca

Open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. 8761 Dry Creek Road, Healdsburg CA 95448 Winery Tours and Private Tastings are available by appointment, and reservations may be made by calling the Hospitality Department at (707) 433-6700. Appointments may also be made online. For additional information, visit www.ferrari-carano.com.

Ferrari-Carano Winery is a feast for the senses – five acres of awardwinning gardens delight the eye (and nose) as you wend your way up the driveway, the gentle Dry Creek Valley breezes rustle through the trees to delight your ears and the wines are absolutely delicious! Once out of your car, a walkway leads you through the well-manicured, colorful grounds to the visitor’s center. For good luck, stop and rub the nose of “Bordeaux, ” a 1300 pound bronze sculpture of a wild boar that sits just off the visitor’s center walkway. If you visit during springtime, you will surely be amazed by the living bouquet of over 18,000 bulbs, which are planted in colorful profusion surrounding the visitor’s center. The Italianate villa-style visitor’s center sits atop the gently rolling hills of the Dry Creek Valley and the views are breathtaking. Inside the visitor’s center, you’ll find an amazing variety of reasonably priced gift items, including Italian pottery, logo wear, beautiful scarves, wine luggage, wine and food-related books, glittery jewelry and more. In my humble opinion, this is one of the best winery gift shops in Sonoma County – it is the perfect place to find that one-of-a-kind gift! A dark cherry wood bar stretches across the back of the room, beckoning visitors to stop and sip a while. The visitor’s center’s high ceilings echo with the conversations and laughter of guests and Ferrari-Carano Winery’s expert hospitality team. Downstairs is the “Enoteca,” a wine-lover’s wonderland. Where a spotless barrel room once resided, an inviting wine lounge beckons visitors to indulge in a series of private tastings. For a nominal fee, visitors can relax and enjoy

Ferrari-Carano’s delicious limited release and reserve wines. Ferrari-Carano Winery’s winemaking team is crafting some excellent wines. With Sarah Quider, Executive Winemaker for FerrariCarano, Rebecka Deike, Associate Winemaker in charge of red wines and Steve Domenichelli carefully nurturing the vineyards, the resulting wines are world class. So, let’s talk about the wines … I had the pleasure of tasting a few of wines that this dream-team produced, and I can tell you first-hand that they rocked my world! • 2013 Fumé Blanc, Sonoma County ($14): I have always been a big fan of Ferrari-Carano Fumé, and this is (in my humble opinion) the best one yet! Aromas of grapefruit, pineapple, cut hay and white flowers jump out of the glass and lure the taster into a bright, juicy mouthful of Fumé deliciousness. You gotta try this wine! • 2014 Pinot Noir, Anderson Valley ($34): In a word, wow! What a great price for a classic Pinot Noir! Black cherry, spice box, rose petal and a whiff of vanilla delight the nose and continue as flavors in the seductively silky mouth. Mmmm. • 2010 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon ($52): This is Cabernet with a capital “C!” Mouthwatering aromas of chocolate-covered-cherry, cassis, mocha and cigar box continue as flavors in the velvety mouth. Long, luscious finish.

TRINCHERO NAPA VALLEY
Spring Fling Event, May 24
Nestled off the winding section of Highway 29 just north of Saint Helena, is the hidden gem, Trinchero Napa Valley winery. Trinchero Napa Valley is the signature wine collection of Trinchero Family Estates, Napa valley vintners since 1948. “The winery is a work of art unto itself. No detail was overlooked and we worked tirelessly to not only make this a functioning flagship winery, but to also make it a place for friends and family to gather,” noted Bob Torres, senior vice president of production and third generation Trinchero family member. Wines bearing the Trinchero Napa Valley label are luxury class, single-vineyard designates which are carefully handcrafted and produced in limited quantities. Trinchero Napa Valley sources its grapes from 100 acres of estate vineyards in prime Napa Valley appellations, including St. Helena, Mount Veeder, Rutherford and Atlas Peak. Mario Monticelli just celebrated his fifth harvest as winemaker of the award-winning wines, each of which represent the unique terroir of these subappellations. Like the Trinchero family, Mario Monticelli has deep roots in the wine country of Italy. Growing up in Northern California, his Italian-born father sparked his interest in winemaking at an early age. Mario was exposed to every aspect of the winemaking process; from driving tractors in the vineyards to picking the grapes. Mario continued his passion for winemaking and Italy by graduating from UC Davis with a Bachelor of Science of Viticulture and Enology as well as with a Bachelor of Art of Italian Language. This Memorial Day weekend, on Saturday May 24, wine lovers and locals can join Mario and the Trinchero family for the Trinchero Napa Valley Spring Fling for a preview of Trinchero Napa Valley’s spring releases from the 2011 vintage and barrel tastings of unreleased single vineyard wines including the brand new Haystack Vineyard (Atlas Peak) Malbec. The afternoon will feature live music by the band San Geronimo, painting by artist Neal Barboza, barrel tasting and food, including artisan pizzas prepared by our team of chefs. Admission to the always sold-out event is $30 for the general public, and free for wine club members. In addition to complimentary admission to the spring release party, members of the

Grgich Hills Estate Celebrates Release of Paris Tasting Commemorative Chardonnay with a ‘Day for Peace’
May 24th marks the date of the famed Paris Tasting, when the 1973 Chateau Montelena Chardonnay crafted by Miljenko “Mike” Grgich was the champion of the 1976 Paris Tasting, beating the best of France and revolutionizing the wine world. Thirty eight years to the day, the Vintners Hall of Fame legend will release his Paris Tasting Commemorative Chardonnay, with a portion of sales during this “Day for Peace” to benefit Roots of Peace. Miljenko “Mike” Grgich first earned his world-wide recognition from the 1976 Paris Tasting. He then partnered with Austin Hills to open their family-owned-and-operated winery in 1977. To honor Grgich’s legacy, the winery showcases its best Chardonnay vines to create this limited-production wine featuring a woodcut image of him on the label. The winery released the first vintage of the Paris Tasting Commemorative Chardonnay in 2013, which quickly sold out. The public is invited to join Miljenko “Mike” Grgich and family at the winery to celebrate the release of the newest vintage of this exceptional wine with an afternoon devoted to savoring delicious wines paired with small bites. The afternoon will also feature live music by jazz legend Mike Morris. winery will donate 5% of all purchases during this day for peace. Grgich’s homeland of Croatia suffered through the Balkan War, which left an estimated 1.3 million landmines and unexploded ordnance throughout the country. Grgich first joined Heidi Kuhn, Founder and CEO of Roots of Peace, in 1998, to support Kuhn’s vision for planting the roots of peace by turning Mines To Vines on land formerly held hostage by the terror of landmines. Grgich’s business partner, Austin Hills, has also supported Roots of Peace by hosting fundraising events at his San Francisco and Napa Valley homes. In 2008, Roots of Peace presented Grgich with the Global Citizen Award for his leadership and unique contributions in raising landmine awareness around the globe. “Miljenko ‘Mike’ Grgich has left a lasting impression upon my entire family,” said Kuhn. “All of us involved with the Roots of Peace mission feel honored that at 91 years old, he continues to support our goal of Mines to Vines.” On the same day as the release party, Kuhn will be in Bethlehem and Palestine, coinciding with the visit of His Holiness Pope Francis, working to continue the Roots of Peace mission in The Holy Land.

TASTING ROOM OF THE WEEK:

BENNETT LANE WINERY
Unique Tastings, Unique Wines
BY JOSH STEIN

BENNETT LANE WINERY Open daily from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. 3340 Highway 128, approximately two miles north of Calistoga www.bennettlane.com | (707) 942-6684 | 1-877-MAX-NAPA

While Bennett Lane Winery, owned by Randy and Lisa Lynch, has only been in the wine business for just over a decade, their wines have made quite an impact throughout the wine world, with more than three dozen 90+ wines, two-thirds in the last half-decade. These folks know Cabernet in a short time like few others ever have in the Valley, and they’ve done so without pricing their wines through the roof or putting on airs in the process. The point, in other words, isn’t just to make great wines – the goal is to go above and beyond and give memorable experiences, making Bennett Lane the winery as must-visit as its wines are must-haves. The winery itself is positioned at the dove-tailing “wedge” of the eastern Vaca and western Mayacamas at the top of the Valley. The combination of soil, exposure and breeze makes about as perfect a spot for wine as exists anywhere on the planet, and the twenty-three acres of Cabernet vines produce those wines with all the high scores. The private lane which greets you is surrounded by vines, and the multi-story, artfully shaped winery feels set inside the land as you drive towards it, row after row on all sides. The tasting room is contemporary and funky, a rustic Meditterranean seen through the lens of the North Bay. It gives a mix of natural stone and wood, and the Napatypical red pine of the barrel room nicely accents the color palette. Outside are multiple decks and pergolas, each providing views of the Mayacamas, and the soft tinkling of the large water fountain accompanies all this, underlying the feeling of being “within” the Valley. The winery’s iPad app adds a nice touch since it’s loaded with info yet unobtrusive for those who want their tasting sans the details. Everything, in other words, has definitely been thought out with the experience in mind. For your tasting, you’ve got quite a range of choices, too, especially given the attention paid to Cabernet, obviously. There are three different Cabs, by the way, as

well as the renowned Maximus Red Feasting Wine, which adds Syrah into the usual Bordeaux buddies along the way to being the best deal in the Valley for a red wine blend. The latest Maximus release would be reason enough to get up there, but there’s plenty more: reserve Chardonnay; Merlot; Syrah; the white Maximus Feasting Wine with its Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Muscat blend; as well as a port-style dessert wine of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and, enjoyably, Carignane, that now-little-seen favorite of the original planters of the Calistoga area. Other tasting options include a unique “Varietals Fruit Flavor” Custom-Blending Experience; it needs reservations, but you are introduced to the winemaking process through a vineyard tour and discussion of the ideal growing conditions for each grape. After the tour, you taste and smell the unblended varietals (Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah) along with a range of aromatics selected to represent the essential qualities and flavor profiles of each variety. By using different amounts from a mix of vineyard lots, guests blend, bottle, cork and label their own unique, personalized bottling of Bennett Lane’s Maximus!

Bennett Lane also has its own, Valleyexclusive hot air balloon to take guests up, up and away at dawn. In conjunction with Calistoga Balloons, they offer standard and private flight packages, presenting lots of options for thrilling memories. Regardless of when or where you taste, General Manager Stefanie Longton says it perfectly, “We want to offer the full hospitality experience so people feel welcomed to learn about the amazing wines in the Calistoga AVA. After all, some of the best reds in the valley come from here, and what better place to experience them than right here at Bennett Lane!” If all I’ve written still hasn’t convinced you to come check these folks out, here are a few more inducements: the vineyards around you are sustainably farmed. Continuing the philosophy of honoring what works from the past, there’s a very cool theme of Roman coins on the wine labels and in the wine names. Be true to who you are, regardless of what you enjoy, is basically the message since it’s the Lynches themselves who are into the Romanalia. In the same vein, they’re totally dog-friendly! Add it your list: Bennett Lane presents the most enjoyable winery – and wines – in the Valley. You won’t be sorry. Enjoy!

WINEMAKER PROFILE:

IGNACIO ‘NACHO’ BLANCAS
‘The Vineyards Make the Wines’ at Summers Estate
BY JOSH STEIN

SUMMERS WINERY Open daily from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. 1171 Tubbs Lane, Calistoga CA 94515 (707) 942-5508 | www.summerswinery.com

There are plenty of places throughout the Valley to find nice wines, but if you’re looking to see for yourself what the original settlers and planters appreciated about the north end’s gifts to red wines, Summers Estate Winery on Calistoga’s Tubbs Lane is where you want to go to taste the best modern understanding of that 19th-century founding vision of vines and place: the largest planting left anywhere of the heritage varietal Charbono. The winery is also known for its wide-ranging choices of bottlings, giving a true sense of the variety the hills are capable of supporting. In addition to the justly renowned Charbono, the winery produces Reserve Alexander Valley Chardonnay, Rosé of Charbono, Zinfandel, Merlot, Petite Sirah, multiple bottlings of Estate and Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, the Checkmate red blend and a sweet Muscat Canelli dessert white. The person behind all of those releases and who nurtures the heritage vines is Ignacio “Nacho” Blancas, Summers’ Winemaker and Vineyard Manager for the past five years, who has actually worked with the winery for more than fifteen years. Ignacio has been with Summers Estate since founder Jim Summers hired him to work in the cellar way back in 1997, and he says his “on-the-job training” started on day one under the direction of a UC Davis graduate. Along the way Ignacio, a native of Michoacan, Mexico, completed his Certification in Viticulture and Enology at Napa Valley College and is currently working through the requirements for his bachelors. Simultaneously, over the past decade, the winery has replanted more than fifty acres of vines, and it’s been Ignacio who has been managing the logistics of all of that agricultural nurturing. He says that “great wine starts with great vineyards,” so Ignacio has helped Summers enhance and take advantage of the volcanic soils of the estate, resulting in unique qualities that give the wines their distinctiveness in the glass. Testiment to his success comes from the man who believed in him all those years ago: “We’re a small winery,” Jim says. “So teamwork is absolutely integral to our success. I could not have asked for a better member of the team than Ignacio. This winery is built on his efforts as much as it is on mine and on my wife Beth’s.” Of course, reading about a winemaker’s skill isn’t the same thing as getting to taste the wines, and Summers Estate now has three new ways in which to do so. By appointment only and ranging in cost from $20 to $35, visitors now have the options of Chocolate and Wine Pairing, Barrel Tastings in Cellar, and, weather-permitting, a Walking Tour and Tasting. Each presents a different facet of the work Ignacio has done, and visitors most definitely will not regret time spent at the top of the Valley. Enjoy!

Blow Off Steam at Old Faithful Geyser of California
Napa Valley’s Geyser is a Daytrip Destination for Everyone
BY DENISE OLLIFFE

Old Faithful Geyser of California is undergoing major refurbishments to prepare for a busy tourist season. A popular Napa Valley landmark since the 1970s, the geyser has long been a spot where visitors could stop by to watch one of only three geothermal geysers dubbed “old faithful” in the world – attracting more than 100,000 visitors per year. However the renovations under way will soon make Old Faithful Geyser of California a complete destination of itself that the entire family can enjoy. Acquired over a year ago by Calistoga Enterprises LLC, Old Faithful Geyser of California has been given a mindful branding overhaul, respecting the historic attributes of the site, and honoring the hard work and dedication previous owner Olga Kolbek had given to the property since the 1970s when she and her husband first bought the land and opened the geyser to the viewing public. Part of the property renovations has been the installation of Old Faithful Gardens. It’s a massive circular garden area where more than 600 plants have recently been bedded, including trees that will one day provide lofty shade to sit under. The focal point of the garden is a cascading geothermal mineral water fountain – making the garden one of the only spots where visitors can touch the therapeutic local mineral waters, other than checking into a nearby Calistoga spa – highly recommended. Cohesive, educational information boards have been placed throughout the property allowing visitors to take self-guided reading tours learning interesting facts about the geyser and its surroundings. The Old Faithful Museum will be opening May 2014 and will present an enrichment opportunity to learn facts about the earth we stand on, an explanation of geyser activity, volcanoes, earthquakes, and much more.

Slated for completion by end of May 2014, there will be new tables with elegant umbrellas sponsored by local wineries where visitors can sit and picnic, as well as outdoor fire pit areas to enjoy evenings under the stars. The garden, grounds and geyser will also be highlighted at night with accent lighting to illuminate the features and extend visiting hours until 10 p.m. There are several more features being planned for the property, including an Old Faithful Culinary Gardens, Old Faithful Greenhouse, Old Faithful Treehouse, bike trail and much more. Visitors can still see charming farm animals on the property, however the area has been restored and turned into an interactive petting zoo with information boards about the variety of animals living on the farm and food pellets to hand-feed them. The grounds also serve as a natural habitat surrounded by concentrated walls of bamboo and lofty palm trees (the geysers often shoot water as high as the palms). The park-like setting attracts a variety of bird species throughout the year. If you look closely, you can even see small cobalt blue zebra fish swimming in the natural pond waters surrounding the geyser – interesting considering the highly concentrated minerals found at the site – the fish apparently thrive there. While visiting, be sure to peek around the gift shop which has a variety of souvenirs, quick snacks, ice cream bars which are pleasant on hot Calistoga days, maps of other local attractions as well as informative staff happy to provide you with insight about the facility. Old Faithful Geyser of California is located on the north end of the Napa Valley at 1299 Tubbs Lane, Calistoga. The park is open seven days a week 8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. during spring. Admission is $14 for adults, $8 for kids age six to 12 (children under age six are free) and $12 for military or seniors. For information, call (707) 942-6463.

Sixth Annual ‘Sense Yountville’ Napa Valley
World Renowned Napa Valley Wineries & Chefs Serve Up their Finest to Benefit Locally Based National Veterans Program – May 3
Spend time at a beautiful venue in world renowned Yountville, have one-on-one conversations with the marquis names of Napa Valley vintners, enjoy tasting savory bites at the whim of the chef and end your day taking home amazing bottles of small production wines at special event prices. Sound like a good day? You may accomplish all of the above and more at the 6th Annual Sense Yountville, Saturday May 3 at V Marketplace-Vintage Estate. Along with enjoying some of the best the Napa Valley has to offer, you may feel good knowing that your purchases will benefit veterans of current wars. “While our participating winemakers and chefs are marquis names at world-class events all over the country, this is about hometown pride right here in our own backyard,” notes Scott Lewis, proprietor of V Wine Cellar, the organizer of the event. “Napa Valley is a mecca for both food and wine lovers; this event was designed to showcase what we do right here at home, and being able to help our Vets certainly sweetens the deal this year.” Whether you’re looking for an exclusive

Judd’s Hill Celebrates 25th Anniverary
Celebrating 25 years of being a Napa Valley favorite, Judd’s Hill is not a typical Napa Valley winery. It’s a small, family owned spot where, yes, you’ll find wonderful handcrafted wines, and, yes, you’ll enjoy beautiful vineyard views. But in the past quarter century, Judd’s Hill had become something more … a slightly off-beat, fun, down-toearth destination where visitors can expect to have a great experience that goes beyond the usual wine tasting. Mission #1 at Judd’s Hill is making small lots of really good wine and, after one of their signature sit-down tastings of at least five varietals, you’ll agree that this mission has been accomplished. Their next goal is to show you a fine time while bringing wine off of its pedestal and into your daily lives. How do they do they do it? Let us count (a few of) the ways: 1. Education. Judd’s Hill offers two very popular hands-on classes to up your knowledge and appreciation of wine. • Their Bottle Blending Day Camp allows you to sit down with one of their entertaining wine educators to create your

own red blend using wines just pulled from the barrels. Once you’ve decided on your favorite cuvee, you’ll head to the cellar to put the blend together, bottle it, cork it and apply your custom label. You can make as little as three bottles and up to multiple barrels of your unique wine. Call with at least 24 hours notice to set up your Dominari opportunity to become a Napa Valley winemaker!

• The Judd’s Hill Wine and Food in Balance tutorial also gets you sitting down with a delightful wine educator for a fun session of learning how the flavors in different foods and wines interact and play with each other as you nibble and sip to learn by example. This is a great way to gain culinary knowledge and confidence to wow your friends at your next dinner party!

2. Humor. Second-generation proprietor, Judd Finkelstein is known throughout the wine world as having a grand sense of humor. For proof, one needs only to look to the “Videos” section of www.juddshill.com to see episodes of his two web-series, “Judd’s Enormous Wine Show” and “Wine Booty.” They are certainly quirky, comical and engaging. They’ve gained national acclaim and the Napa Valley Vintners Association calls them “Saturday Night Live blended with Napa Wine.” You’re sure to get a kick out of them and gain an appreciation of wine from this entertaining insider. Judd also hosts “Judd’s Napa Valley Show,” a weekly radio program featuring the characters that make our valley the intriguing world destination that it is. Podcast episodes are available via the iTunes store.

3. Hospitality and Events. A good time is a sure thing when visiting Judd’s Hill. Depending on the season, tastings may be held in their lovely tasting room, out on the beautiful tasting terrace with vineyard views or right where the magic happens, surrounded by tanks and barrels in the winery cellar. All of their hospitality pros have gone through Judd’s audition and training program to make sure that guests are never stuck with a “stiff board” of a host. The winery’s many Wine Club parties showcase wine, food and various (often unusual) styles of entertainment while raising funds for local non-profit organizations. Judd himself might even stroll into your tasting while strumming his ukulele to croon you a tune. We’ve come to realize that visitors to Judd’s Hill should expect the unexpected and know they’re in for a good time!
• 3 Passenger Sedan at 5 hours – $325 • 6 Pass limo 5 hours – $358 • Up to 8 passenger limo 5 hours – $425

The Finkelstein family has been making wine for more than 40 years. In the past 25 as Judd’s Hill, locals here in Napa Valley have been their biggest support. It’s obvious that this family is having a good time making fine wine. When you visit this charming winery, you’ll be treated warmly, you’ll enjoy yourself and you will certainly create many fond memories of your Napa Valley experience. Judd’s Hill is open daily at 2332 Silverado Trail, Napa. For reservations and information, call (707)2 55-2332x2. Visit the website at www.juddshill.com.

SONOMA COUNTY | WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK

Annual Taste Alexander Valley Weekend May 16-18 at the Historic Asti Winery
Winegrowers add unique ‘Private Access’ events on Saturday and Sunday for wine enthusiasts
The 17th rendition of Taste Alexander Valley, the annual appellation event celebrating the renowned Alexander Valley, will be held May 16, 17 and 18 in and around the vineyards just north of Healdsburg. More than 25 wineries will open their vineyards, wineries, tasting rooms and caves for guests to enjoy the latest releases of world-class wines made from grapes grown in the sumptuous Alexander Valley. The weekend kicks off with the Opening Celebration, Friday evening, May 16th at the historic original home of Italian Swiss Colony – the Asti Winery in Cloverdale. Now home to the Souverain brand, the Asti Winery evokes the early wine- and Champagnemaking era that long preceded Prohibition. The backdrop for the event are the amazing and original Champagne vaults built in 1910, which still boast the original signage for the Grand Prix Winner of the Torino Wine Exposition in 1911 – Golden State Extra Dry Champagne, made by winemaker Pietro Rossi for Italian Swiss Colony, owned by Asti’s own immigrant icon, Andrea Sbarboro. Running from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., the outdoor celebration will feature reserve and library wines from throughout the Alexander Valley, allowing guests a special opportunity to interact and mingle with local vintners, growers and winemakers before the weekend festivities kick into high gear. Returning for a third year are notable local guest chefs – Josh Silvers of Jackson’s Bar & Oven, Jeff Mall of Zin Restaurant & Wine Bar, and Carlo Cavallo of Meritage Sonoma. Each chef will be creating passed hors d’oeuvres and small plates to pair with featured Alexander Valley wines, poured by winemakers and vintners of participating wineries. On Saturday and Sunday, May 17 and 18, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.,
Enjoy a moment in time with family and friends

wineries will host individual parties at sites throughout Alexander Valley. Wineries will create colorful and engaging decorative environments for their TAV guests, often including live music and entertainment to enhance the wine and food offerings. For the first time this year, the growers are introducing a new series of events entitled Private Access Alexander Valley. Private Access (PA) events are designed to heighten and advance the guest experience by offering more personalized, in-depth wine exploration of special wines for tasting and purchase in an intimate winery, vineyard, cellar or wine cave setting, distinctly apart from the historic TAV consumer experience. A Private Access pass will allow each guest access to their choice of two VIP experiences. PA events and ticketing will be offered online through the Taste Alexander Valley website once guests purchase the basic weekend pass.

Cellars, Clos du Bois, deLorimier Winery, Field Stone Winery & Vineyard, Francis Ford Coppola Winery, Hanna Winery & Vineyards, Hawkes Wine, J. Rickards Winery, Kelley & Young, Medlock Ames, Pech Merle Winery, Pendleton Estate Vineyards & Winery, Praxis Cellars, Quaking Hills Winery, Rodney Strong Vineyards, Sapphire Hill Winery, Simi Winery, Soda Rock Winery, Souverain at Asti, Starlite Vineyards, Stonestreet Winery, Stryker Sonoma, Stuhlmuller Vineyards, Trione Vineyards & Winery and White Oak Vineyards & Winery. Sponsors for this year’s weekend include American AgCredit, Bohemian, Geyserville Inn, KRSH 95.9, Press Democrat, Pure Luxury Transportation, Sonoma Magazine and Wine & Spirits.

Alexander Valley
An hour north of the Golden Gate Bridge lies the Alexander Valley, located at the northern end of Sonoma County. The Alexander Valley is 22 miles long and varies in width from two to seven miles. There are 76,900 acres of land, of which 15,000 acres are planted to premium wine grapes. World-famous Cabernet Sauvignon grapes thrive from the Valley floor all the way up the rolling hillsides and mountain ridges. The gravelly loam soils straddling the river encourage Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Merlot to flourish. Alexander Valley also produces Zinfandel grapes as well as Rhone varieties, such as Syrah and Viognier.

Ticketing and Passes
Weekend passes and Opening Celebration tickets are available at www.alexandervalley.org. Passes are $65 in advance and $75 at the door. Tickets for the Opening Celebration are $95 in advance only and may be purchased with a weekend pass for the best value price of $140, with limited availability. Tickets for Private Access Events on Saturday and Sunday, are available to ticketed guests, on the website. This year’s participants are Alexander Valley Vineyards, Arbios

SONOMA COUNTY | WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK

Russian River Valley Winegrowers Celebrates Russian River Valley Pinot Noir with the Pinot Classic
Memorial Day Weekend, May 23-26
The multi-day celebration of Russian River Valley’s internationally acclaimed Pinot Noir is taking place during Memorial Day weekend, from May 23 through May 26. The highly anticipated weekend of events explores the rugged beauty of this largely undiscovered destination and it’s hidden gems – including world-class wines, local food and unmatched hospitality. The Pinot Classic comprises multiple events including the annual Passport to Pinot barrel tasting and the second annual Pinot Classic Paulée Dinner. In addition, a seminar on the AVA’s neighborhoods initiative will take place on Saturday, May 24 from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at the Fountaingrove Inn. Passport to Pinot offers Barrel Tastings from more than 30 Russian River wineries and producers while showcasing the vineyards and people that comprise the exceptional beauty of the Russian River Valley. Guests will enjoy preferred access to pre-release wines, barrel, library and limited edition winery-only wines, as well as artist demonstrations, entertainment, delicious food and so much more. Early bird tickets are $55 per person until April 15 and $65 thereafter and are available on PinotClassic.com. An exclusive evening celebrating the wine, winemakers and growers of the famed Russian River Valley will inspire guests of the annual Paulée Dinner, this year hosted by Jean-Charles Boisset’s DeLoach Vineyards on Saturday May 24, beginning at 6 p.m. The tradition of the original Paulées in Burgundy celebrated the conclusion of harvest where vintners would gather for a communal meal, bringing special bottles of wine to share. In the spirit of this tradition, vintners from the Russian River Valley will dig deep into their personal and private wine cellars to present their favorite Pinots and Chardonnays from the Russian River and beyond. Guests are also encouraged to bring a special bottle to share. The Annual Paulée evening begins with a winemaker reception, followed by a delicious three-course plated meal. Attendees will experience a truly unique Russian River Valley evening under the stars with a Pinot-inspired menu prepared by Michou Cornu, Director of Cuisine and Hospitality at Boisset Family Estates. Host wineries include Arista, Benovia, DeLoach, Joseph Swan, Hartford Family, Kosta Browne, Merry Edwards, Thomas George, Williams Selyem and more. Tickets are $250 per person and available at PinotClassic.com. The Pinot Classic will also offer a full VIP experience, which includes exclusive opportunities for 36 ticket holders to enjoy a behind the scenes experience, including an intimate VIP reception hosted at Kosta Browne with Russian River’s winegrowers and producers on Friday, May 23, entrance to the Russian River Valley Neighborhoods seminar on Saturday, May 24, including an in-depth discussion on the distinguishing characteristics of each neighborhood and a private barrel tasting at DeLoach Vineyards on Saturday, May 24. A ticket to the Paulée Dinner is also included in the package price. Tickets are $350 per person for all three days of the Pinot Classic and available at PinotClassic.com. The Russian River Valley American Viticultural Area (AVA) is located in the heart of Sonoma County, California, just 55 miles north of San Francisco. The seasonal fog and tempering effects of the Pacific Ocean to the west provide this area with an uncommonly long growing season, and ideal conditions for cool climate loving grape varieties, particularly Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The growing conditions result in wines of uncommon depth and richness that still maintain bright, natural acidity. The Russian River Valley Winegrowers (RRVW) is a non-profit marketing and educational organization dedicated to maintaining the agricultural diversity of the Russian River Valley while preserving its natural resources and protecting its authentic farming heritage. As a trade association that supports grape farmers and wineries, our nearly 300 members participate in educational seminars, sponsored and consumer events, and community networking. The RRVW provides regular marketing, publicity and community relations support and is committed to promoting the Russian River Valley as the world’s premiere winegrowing region. For more information, email info@rrvw.org or visit www.rrvw.org.

Rosenblum Cellars to Move Original ‘Urban’ Tasting Room
New Location Will Offer Host of Dining Options
Rosenblum Cellars, the “original urban winery” and California Zinfandel pioneer, announced plans to move its East Bay Visitors Center location to Jack London Square on the Oakland waterfront. The new location will offer Rosenblum club members and other visitors the wine experience with friendly staff they expect, as well as a wealth of new food and entertainment options. The new location is just three miles from Rosenblum's current Alameda site and convenient by public transportation, including the Ferry and BART, which are just steps from the new door. “We listen to our club members and visitors to our locations in the East Bay and Healdsburg,” said Brigid Harris, General Manager, Direct-to-Consumer, Diageo Chateau and Estate Wines. “We know they love Rosenblum Cellars for great quality wines and for the warm atmosphere of our wine experience. We also know they enjoy food and wine pairings, as well as good food in general. For all of these reasons, we are Silver Oak Frick excited about the new J Rickards 128 Winery 128 Palmeri Route Rosenblum space and all the Pedroncelli Meeker Local David GEYSER Terroirs Caffaro Oakland location will offer.” PEAK 128 Last October, the Rosenblum 101 deLORIMIER Cellars Wine Tasting Lounge and Trione Mercury Clos du Bois Educational Center opened on TRENTADUE Garden the square in Healdsburg, close Robert Creek Ranch Young Francis to many of its regional growers Ford Coppola Stryker and finest Zinfandel vineyards.

Located just outside the wine-drenched hamlet of Healdsburg is a special kind of oldnew place. “Old-new, what the heck is that?” you may ask. Well, here’s the scoop ~ Geyser Peak Winery was founded over 134 years ago (old) and has produced lots of great award winning wines throughout the years at their original chateau-like Geyserville location. They still make wonderful wines, but now the winery and tasting room has a (new) location, just off of Westside Road, at the former home of Alderbrook Winery. So, there you have it, old-new. With great wines and gracious hospitality. What more could you want? Over 65 acres of vineyards surround the large farmhouse-like tasting room. A large covered front porch sets a welcoming tone and the grassy picnic area behind the tasting room tempts visitors to relax, kick off their shoes and stay a while. The inside of the tasting room is gorgeous! Floor-to-ceiling windows let in lots of Sonoma County sunshine, the dark hardwood floors echo with the laughter of well-heeled customers and a long bar spans the back of the room. The Peak Room sits off to the side for private seated tastings. A fireplace takes up one wall, surrounded by cozy, cushy chairs and couches. A tasteful selection of non-wine merchandise is artfully displayed around the room, perfect for browsing while you sip. Let’s talk about sipping – Geyser Peak makes some eminently sippable, award-winning wines! There is a wine for everyone here, from dry Sparkling Shiraz to sweet Late Harvest Riesling, and lots in between! Many of the wines are only available at the winery, so you don’t want to miss a chance to taste them! I tasted a few wines during my visit and they were all delicious, but I only have room to write about a couple, so here goes: • 2012 River Ranch Sauvignon Blanc ($21): Mouthwatering aromas of grapefruit, melon, cut hay and lemon blossoms are enhanced by clean mineral notes. These aromas continue as flavors in the crisp, juicy mouth. • 2011 Devil’s Inkstand Cabernet Sauvignon ($55): This is an $80 Cab in a $55 dress! Black cherry, mocha, cigar box and potpourri spice aromas and flavors all play together nicely, from the first sniff, through the velvety-rich mouthfeel, and on through the finish. Geyser Peak Winery’s friendly and knowledgeable staff will guide you through the tasting selections at the bar. Private tastings are available for groups of up to 30 people by appointment.

Drought Intensifies Korbel Garden’s Sustainability Efforts
Korbel Champagne Cellars’ lush garden is one of Sonoma County’s top visitor destinations for good reason – towering redwoods and the historic circa 1882 Korbel House provide a spectacular setting for the garden’s colorful plantings, including 250 different rose varieties. As beautiful as ever, the Korbel Garden looks subtly different since it opened for the 2014 season on April 15th and it is all due to the current California drought and Korbel Champagne Cellars’ ongoing sustainability efforts. For years the Korbel Garden has utilized a range of sustainable cultivation techniques – including compost made from vineyard waste, low-flow drip irrigation (run only at night) and integrated pest management with beneficial bugs and nematodes – not unlike those used in Korbel Champagne Cellars’ estate vineyards. The California drought has caused Korbel to intensify its sustainability efforts to further conserve water. In the Korbel Garden, the changes include replacing some annuals with perennials, adding more compost to some beds, increasing plantings of drought-resistant California natives and limiting “color” plantings – all techniques applicable to home gardens. A visit to the Korbel Garden is an awe-inspiring experience. Winding footpaths lead to vibrant plantings of agapanthus, pincushion plants, irises, dahlias and roses – old worlds, hybrid teas and damasks – all framed by box hedges, clematis, plume poppies and a 30-foot-tall climbing hydrangea. Many travelers make the Korbel Garden the centerpiece of a visit to Korbel Champagne Cellars. In addition to taking in the garden, they sample Korbel California champagnes in the tasting room, tour the historic Champagne cellars and enjoy lunch at the gourmet delicatessen. From opening day until mid-October, free guided tours of the Korbel Garden are offered Tuesday through Sunday at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. On major holidays that fall on a Monday, the garden will be open for tours that day, but closed the following Tuesday. Additional information regarding the Korbel Garden and Korbel Champagne Cellars is available by telephone at (707) 824-7000 and via the internet at www.korbel.com. Established in 1882, Korbel Champagne Cellars produces America’s most popular methode champenoise Champagne. Korbel is located on River Road near Guerneville, 14 miles west of Highway 101.

Beau Wine Tours, Transcendence Theatre Company to Start a ‘Broadway Under the Stars’ Shuttle Service
Guests from Santa Rosa and Sonoma will be able to enjoy the pre-show picnic, fine wines and concert and return safely
Beau Wine Tours and the Transcendence Theatre Company (TTC) have joined forces to create a shuttle service for the Transcendence Theatre’s 2014 “Broadway Under the Stars” concert series. Brad Surosky, co-Executive Director of TTC stated “We’re excited to provide a safer and more enjoyable experience for the Sonoma community that so wonderfully supports our shows. We’re also excited to provide access to “Broadway Under The Stars” and Jack London State Park to those wouldn’t otherwise be able to attend, making the roads safer, the experience more enjoyable, and the parking a smoother operation in the park. We are pleased to be teaming with such a wonderful organization as Beau Wine Tours, that offers top of the line transportation, and is highly regarded in both Napa and Sonoma counties.” Transcendence Theatre Company’s concert series Broadway Under the Stars in Jack London State Park recently garnered some prestigious accolades in 2013, including the Broadway World San Francisco Award for “Theater of the Year,” as well as “Best Production for Youth,” “Best Choreographer,” and a second consecutive win for “Best Special Theater Event” (2012 & 2013). Broadway World is the world’s largest internet theatre website and the organization honors the theatrical arts in many communities across the U.S. In addition to the awards, the 2013 season was a significant success for Transcendence as it attracted over 11,000 attendees and raised over $40,000 for Jack London State Historic Park. Rose Kapsner, Director of Sales for Beau Wine Tours stated, “We’re very excited to partner with Transcendence Theatre for their Broadway concerts in the park. Supporting the arts, the parks, and the community is

important to us as we are also based in the Sonoma Valley. We are thrilled to add world-class transportation to the already awardwinning events they produce and look forward to seeing many of our

Anderson Valley Winegrowers To Host 17th Annual Pinot Noir Festival, May 16
Event Showcases the Many Styles of Cold-Climate Pinot Noir
This year’s Anderson Valley Pinot Noir Festival, to be held May 16-18, will not only showcase Anderson Valley Pinot Noir as we know it, but celebrate the versatility of the grape. More than 45 producers will pour everything from Pinot Noir Blanc to Blanc de Noirs, Vin Gris of Pinot Noir, and more at this 17th annual event. The Festival, put on by the Anderson Valley Winegrowers Association, kicks off on Friday, May 16 with a day-long technical conference aimed at members of the trade and avid Pinot consumers. Conference topics include: viticulture and winemaking in a drought; the multiple personalities of Pinot Noir (from Pinot Noir Blanc to rosé and more); a tasting of Angel Camp Vineyard Pinot Noirs; a presentation by Clark Smith on his book, “Postmodern Winemaking,” and how it applies to Pinot Noir; and more. The technical conference will be followed by a casual, outdoor barbecue at Foursight Wines, featuring grilled lamb and other delicacies from Bones Roadhouse in Gualala, Calif., plus live music from locals Dean Titus & The Coyote Cowboys. Pinot Noirs from a variety of producers will be on offer to pair with the meal. After a press tasting on Saturday morning, the grand tasting will again take place in the vineyards at Goldeneye Winery in Philo. The many styles of Pinot Noir on offer will be paired with Karina’s Paella (including a live cooking demonstration), local smoked salmon and sausages from Roundman’s Smoke House, Pennyroyal Farmstead cheeses, wood-fired pizzas from Piacci Pizza, cookies from The Mendocino Cookie Company and other delicious bites. There will also be live music and a silent auction to benefit the valley’s only

medical facility, the Anderson Valley Health Center in Boonville. Participating wineries include: Angel Camp Vineyards, Ardzrooni Family Wines, Balo Vineyards, Baxter Winery, Bink Wines, Black Kite Cellars, Breggo Cellars, Brutocao Cellars, Cakebread Cellars, Champ de Rêves, Chaname Wines, Domaine Anderson, Drew Family Wines, Donum Estate, Esterlina Vineyards, Ferrari-Carano Vineyards and Winery, Foursight Wines, Frati Horn, Fulcrum Wines, Goldeneye Winery, Greenwood Ridge Vineyards, Handley Cellars, Husch Vineyards, Knez Winery, La Crema, Lazy Creek Vineyards, Lichen Estate, LuLa Cellars, Maggy Hawk Wines, Navarro Vineyards, Nelson Hill Winery, Panthea, Philo Ridge Vineyards, Roederer Estate, Saintsbury, Scharffenberger Cellars, Toulouse Vineyards, Twomey Cellars, Waits-Mast Cellars, Wind Racer Wines, Witching Stick Wines, Woodenhead and Zina Hyde Cunningham, with more to come.

Santa Lucia Highlands Wine Artisans Name Rancho Cielo as Charity Partner For Gala
Auction at May 17 SLH Tasting Event will Benefit Youth Campus and Its Programs
The Santa Lucia Highlands Wine Artisans, an alliance of the appellation’s winegrowers and the wineries that rely on the district’s world-class grapes, announced that Rancho Cielo will be the group’s official charity partner for this year’s SLH Gala. On Saturday, May 17, five hundred wine lovers will gather at Mer Soleil Winery, outside Salinas. In addition to sampling world-class Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from more than thirty Highlands’ vintners, guests will participate in an exciting silent auction of rare “big bottles” and one-of-a-kind wine experiences. A portion of the SLH Gala’s auction proceeds will be donated to Rancho Cielo and, in particular, the Drummond Culinary Academy there. The Rancho Cielo Drummond Culinary Academy is one of several programs there that are tailored to help transform the lives of young people through learning new skills, on-the-job training and professional mentorship. The goal is to train at-risk youth in the Salinas and Monterey County area in a work environment that is conducive to learning, where they feel challenged, respected and accountable; the Drummond program’s ultimate desire is to prepare culinary academy students to become qualified to work in the region’s many restaurants. More info on Rancho Cielo’s important outreaches can be found at ranchocieloyc.org. This is the eighth year the Santa Lucia Highlands Wine Artisans have held their Gala, their only public tasting annually. Vintners and winegrowers likely to participate include: August West, Belle Glos, Bernardus, Black Kite, Boekenoogen, Cattleya, Hahn, Hallcrest, Hawks View, Hope & Grace, J. Lohr – Highlands Bench, Joyce, La Rochelle, Lucienne, Loring, Mansfield – Dunne, Manzoni, McFarland, McIntyre, Mer Soleil, Miura, Morgan, Novy, Paraiso, Pelerin, Pessagno, Pisoni / Lucia, Poppy, Puma Road, Roar, Scheid, Siduri, Testarossa, Tondre, Tudor and Wrath. The SLH Gala takes place from 1 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, May 17 at Mer Soleil Winery – a dramatic venue not normally open to the general public. Mer Soleil is located at 1290 River Road, Salinas. General admission tickets are $85. More info and ticket purchasing is available at SantaLuciaHighlands.com. The Santa Lucia Highlands is one of the crown jewels of California viticulture, growing and producing some of the state’s best cool climate Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Syrah. The appellation encompasses more than 6,000 acres of prime vineyards, planted on the elevated terraces of the Santa Lucia mountain range, all heavily influenced by close proximity to Monterey Bay. The area's unique character was recognized with official A.V.A. status in 1991. The Wine Artisans of the Santa Lucia Highlands, formed in 2005, is a formal association of vineyards and wineries that grow grapes here or use this region's fruit to craft their wines. Their primary goal is to promote this unique viticultural district and increase awareness and appreciation of the Santa Lucia Highlands. The group’s online home is SantaLuciaHighlands.com.

WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK | WINEMAKER FAVORITES

Up close and personal with rockstar winemakers

BY ALEXANDRA CHARSLEY

WCTW: What’s your favorite local restaurant and what do you like to order? JS: My favorite restaurant is KIN in Windsor. When I go there, I get the Purist Pizza. The pizza is based on a recipe from Lombardi’s in New York, which is one of the oldest pizzerias in America. The pizza is very simple. It uses freshly sliced mozzarella cheese (not shredded), homemade sauce and fresh basil. While the ingredients are basic, the flavors are intense and very pleasurable. WCTW: If you are meeting a friend for cocktails, where do you go? JS: I like to go to Jack and Tony’s in Railroad Square (Santa Rosa). They have a great happy hour and I love the atmosphere. WCTW: What do you do for fun? JS: If I am not playing with my kids, I try to play as much golf a possible. My favorite course in Sonoma County is Fountaingrove Golf Club. WCTW: Where’s the best place to relax in Wine Country? JS: I would have to say spending Thursday nights in the summer at the Windsor Town Green is great. We meet up with all of our friends and family, listen to live music, talk, eat and hang out. WCTW: What’s your favorite meal and bottle of wine to enjoy at home? JS: I really enjoy barbecuing on my deck, while my kids are running around having fun. Typically we are grilling hamburgers. I like to drink our Rodney Strong Dry Creek Zinfandel with them. I think it is a great pairing. WCTW: What other places do you like to “hang out?” JS: I love going out to lunch at Wurst in Healdsburg. They have great hot dogs, which I love. JUSTIN SEIDENFELD I also like going to Spring Lake and taking a walk, or visiting Keiser Park playground in Windsor. These are great places to hang out with my family, and we all enjoy it. WCTW: What’s an interesting fact that most people don’t know about you? RODNEY STRONG VINEYARDS JS: I love to build things out of wood. I started out with a farmhouse dining room table and a Open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. doll house for my daughter. Now, I am planning to build another table out of old redwood 11455 Old Redwood Hwy, Healdsburg, CA 95448 tank staves. I like working with my hands and seeing my project come to life. It is also one of Phone:(707) 431-1533 | www.rodneystrong.com the reasons I love to make wine. Seeing the process from start to finish fascinates me. ABOUT: Justin Seidenfeld’s winemaking career began in 2005 when he was an intern at Iron Horse Winery. There, the regular work of the cellar kicked off a quick rise in winemaking responsibilities that landed him a job at the venerable Robert Mondavi Winery. In 2006, Justin graduated from the University of California, Davis with a B.S. in Viticulture & Enology. He began working for Rodney Strong in the spring of 2010 and works alongside veteran winemaker, Rick Sayre, in the winery’s main cellar. As to his inspiration to become a winemaker, Justin notes, “People recalling the occasions that wine makes better and memorable is the reason I make wine. Hearing about how and when someone enjoyed a wine I made inspires me.” WCTW: What’s your favorite local restaurant and what do you like to order? RM: It’s a toss-up between Ume Japanese Bistro where I would order the Hamachi Collar and the Old Redwood Roll or the Russian River Pub – I can go in there during harvest covered in grape juice and relax with a beer and a burger. WCTW: Where do you go for coffee and a pastry? RM: Wherever the wife takes me – she’s the one drinking the coffee. Probably the Flying Goat, Parish Café or Chloe’s French Café. WCTW: If you are meeting a friend for cocktails, where do you go? RM: Healdsburg has some nice bars with great cocktails – Willi’s Wine Bar, Mateo’s Cucina Latina for margaritas or SpoonBar. WCTW: What do you do for fun? RM: Boating on the lake, fishing, hiking and mushroom hunting. WCTW: Where’s the best place to relax in Wine Country? RM: I like to relax at the coast sipping Sauvignon Blanc and slurping oysters after a walk along the shore or on a picnic after a hike with a cold bottle of rosé. WCTW: What’s an interesting fact that most people don’t know about you? RM: I taught math for 26 years. ABOUT: Rick Moshin’s fascination with fermentation began with homemade beer, but he soon turned his attention to wine. A former San Jose State University math instructor, Rick made prudent use of his math skills to design a four-tier gravity flow winery for small-lot wine production at Moshin Vineyards. Acquiring a vineyard was a dream that became a reality for him in 1989 when he and his family decided to purchase a 10-acre Pinot Noir vineyard in Sonoma County. His goal for producing the highest quality wines inspired him to grow this endeavor into a full-fledged winery.
