INTELLIGENCE FOR THE WINE CONSUMER
BY LEN NAPOLITANO

What is terroir?
Influences of terroir include soil composition, morning or afternoon
fog, day-to-night temperature swings, annual and growing-season
rain, length of growing season, direction of the sun in relation to the
orientation of vine rows, vineyard elevation – you get the idea: it’s the
totality of a site’s environment, sometimes referred to as a “sense of
place.”
Although of French origin, terroir philosophy applies anywhere: it
applies to regions like Oregon’s Willamette Valley or California’s Santa
Maria Valley, both places where the pinot noir grape makes superb,
world class wine; it applies to New York’s Finger Lakes and

Washington’s Columbia Valley, two regions consistently producing
amazing rieslings. The similarities of terroir within these regions –
primarily a cool climate for pinot noir and a cold climate for riesling –
create wines of notable character from identical grape varieties. This
philosophy may be applied down to the details of vineyards with
similar terroir.
Winegrowers and winemakers have learned how terroir is
responsible for “personality” in a wine, evident year after year –
except when the unpredictable nature of extreme weather
intervenes.

BY JOSH STEIN

If I Could Keep Time in a Barrel …
The end of Spring brings heat, and with it, lots of things start to
happen in the cellar. Over the Winter and into early Spring, with
cellars cold, wines in barrel tend to slowly blurb along, the yeasts
gently doing their thing with the last percent or two of residual
sugars or the bacteria finishing up the conversion of malic to lactic
acid, both of which are good for aroma and mouthfeel, but come
the warmth of late Spring, the wines in barrel come alive again
because heat speeds up reactions, just like in your high school
chem lab from ages ago, which means it’s decision time once again.
For whites, generally Chardonnay but occasionally Sauvignon
Blanc or another oaked variety, this is when the secondary
malolactic fermentation finishes if it has not already, and with the
exception of those who are going for a long time in barrel, this is
when the previous Fall’s white wines are bottled. Some bottlings,
like Sauvignon Blanc or Riesling, generally made in steel the whole
time, would be released immediately, the freshness and vibrancy
preserved for exactly how appealing these wines are when young.
Most producers, however, would bottle oaked whites and then
allow them to age under glass for at least a few months, if not
longer. This is not just about bottle shock from bottling, which
does tend to mute or cause otherwise great wines to taste a bit off
for a month or two. No, the anaerobic conditions actually allow
the wines to again undergo a slow maturation, bringing out more
mouthfeel and complexity through the lack of oxygen. This is why
the wines “wake up” when opened – they have returned to aerobic
conditions, activating bouquet and flavors through the
reintroduction of a lot of oxygen all at once.
Red wines, on the other hand, take a parallel but different
trajectory than the whites. Just about all reds spend time in oak,
and Spring will mean time to transfer, or “rack,” again as every few
months barrels need to be topped up to reduce the oxygen of
headspace created by the “angel’s share,” and the best way to

address this is to conslidate into fewer barrels. This causes a
gradual reduction of the overall wine in the cellar as barreled wines
are racked out of their homes and then into either a new barrel or a
tank, some folks deciding to maintain the integrity of each wine lot
while others allowing for a general mixing in a larger tank before
going back to individual barrels again.
Any given red spends eighteen to twenty-four months in this
cycle, and along the way, each racking creates a natural fining effect
as particles fall out of solution and end up in the belly of each
barrel. These lees provide for complexity but also possible
microbial contamination, which is why the monitoring of each
wine in barrel and as it is racked is most important of all—we can
taste and smell problems far quicker through sensory monitoring,
and knowing that Spring brings warmth, and warmth speeds
things up, simply means paying closer attention rather than
necessarily doing anything at all.
Regardless of which decisions are made, or not, each time the
winegrower chooses to tweak or not, to rack or not, how often, the
logistics of the racking, etc., all leave an impact on the final wine.
While the processes are scientific, measurable, and generally
predictable, the application is where experience and creativity come
to the fore. There is no one right answer, which is what makes
winegrowing so much fun. If we knew all the answers ahead of
time, there’d be no point in doing it since wines tend to have minds
of their own. Consider that when you pop the next bottle and
enjoy!

As the warmth of summer days roll into Napa Valley, a fool-proof way to make the
most of the season is a day spent at the Bennett Lane Winery in Calistoga. One of our
favorite stops every year, Bennett Lane is known for its succulent Cabernets, their
signature “feasting wine,” Maximus, and for one of the finest visitor experiences in
the valley. Founded by Randy and Lisa Lynch in 2003, Bennett Lane’s off-the-beatentrack location and friendly tasting room offers visitors to Napa a “secret gem” and a
great way to learn about – and try – some of Napa’s best wines in a more intimate
setting.
Bennett Lane’s Cabs have continuously garnered critical acclaim. In the short
period that the winery has been open they have received an incredible 36 scores of
90+ points between Wine Spectator, Wine Enthusiast and Robert Parker’s Wine
Advocate. Year after year the popular blend of Cabernet, Merlot and Syrah has won
accolades from critics and visitors alike. The “red feasting wine,” as Maximus is
affectionately referred to on the label, demonstrates owners Randy and Lisa Lynch’s
commitment to making wine an integral part of entertaining with family and friends.
The current vintage of 2009 is available in the tasting room – at $35 per bottle this is
the best deal in the valley.
Bennett Lane’s wines are crafted to be approachable, yet complex – or what owner
Randy Lynch calls “the best of both worlds, meaning you can drink them today, but
they are structured enough to cellar for several years. My goal is for us to make
consistent wines – both in quality and taste – from year to year, so that consumers
can trust Bennett Lane wines,” he says.
Bennett Lane has quickly become one of the top vintners in the valley and has
upgraded their tasting room to match the amazing accolades that the wines have
received in their first few years. It is fast becoming the must see destination for wine
lovers visiting Napa Valley’s AVA of Calistoga. In addition to the elegantly appointed
tasting bar, they are sharing their new custom ipad application for their guests to use
for an interactive tasting experience. Guests can not only read the latest reviews and
tasting notes – but also find interesting food pairing recipes, share their favorite new
wines on Facebook, and email their personal wine notes home, all while tasting a
glass of Napa’s finest. Owner Randy Lynch notes, “As a small winery we strive to not
only make the best hand-crafted wines available, but also one of the most
educational and enjoyable tasting experiences around for guests coming to visit one
of the premier wine growing regions in the world.”
The Signature Tasting Flight at Bennett Lane is $15 and includes four of Bennett
Lane’s wines: 2011 Reserve Chardonnay, 2009 Maximus Red Feasting Wine, 2009
Cabernet Sauvignon and one special selection from their wine library. Cabernet
enthusiasts can upgrade to their Reserve Tasting Flight for $40, and get a chance to
try three of the wineries top tier Cabernets, including the Lynch Family Vineyard
Calistoga Cabernet with less than 100 cases produced. Be sure to put Bennett Lane
on your short-list of must-visit tasting rooms as the production is small and the
Cabernets sell out quickly. Visiting Bennett Lane affords tasters another rarity with a
small winery – a likely run-in (and perhaps a last minute barrel tasting if you’re
lucky!) with owners Randy and Lisa Lynch.
Bennett Lane Winery is located in an understated Mediterranean-style building at
the secluded and beautiful northern end of the Napa Valley, and is considered well
worth the drive.

Enjoy Wines With A View
at Tahoe City Wine Walk
Wine aficionados, ‘foodies’ and those who fancy having fun, take note!
The 9th Annual Tahoe City Wine Walk returns to the shores of
North Lake Tahoe Saturday, June 21, to “toast” the beginning of the
summer season. The 2014 line-up includes participation from over
30 vendors specializing in wines, boutique teas, high-end spirits,
micro brews and North Lake Tahoe’s premier restaurants and catering
companies. The Wine Walk is one of the area’s most popular events,

social center and commercial core.
“What has stayed the same each year is this ideal event location,”
said Gary Davis, president, Tahoe City Downtown Association
(TCDA). “The Wine Walk runs along scenic North Lake Tahoe
Boulevard in Tahoe City and provides some of the best views of the
lake. The venue alone is priceless and is thoroughly enjoyed by our
visitors and locals alike. Last year we hosted more than 800 attendees
from far and wide, and 30 regional wineries. This year’s event will be
even bigger and better.”
Always alfresco and appropriately on the first day of summer, the
Wine Walk is scheduled from noon to 4 p.m. “Sippers” along with
younger family members, or those just interested in “strolling”, will
find an abundance to do such as sampling gourmet bites from
restaurants, shopping in the numerous boutique stores, playing in
the park, listening to live music and striking up conversations with
locals and visitors alike along with the many winemakers and their
representatives.
The Wine Walk is a perfect prelude to a dinner that evening at one
of the many restaurants along the main strip, North Lake Blvd, and
don’t forget to take a stroll to the “Y” for some riverside dining.
Tickets are now on sale online at www.tahoecitywinewalk.com
and cost $40 per person in advance and $50 per person at the event
– cash only day of. Ticket price includes admittance, wine, beer,
spirits and non-alcoholic tastings, commemorative wine glass,
delicious bite-sized offerings, live music and free on-site parking.

Robert Mondavi Winery Announces Lineup
for 45th Annual Summer Concert Series
Preservation Hall Jazz Band opens series on June 28
Robert Mondavi Winery has announced the full lineup for its
45th annual Summer Concert Series. Preservation Hall Jazz Band
will kick-off the festivities on June 28, with exciting performances
in the following weeks from Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Five for
Fighting, Dave Koz and Friends and Colbie Caillat.
“Since its inception, the summer concerts have been my favorite
opportunity to invite our friends and neighbors to celebrate with us
in the vineyard,” explains Margrit Mondavi, who organized the
original concert series in 1969.
The concert series begins June 28 with a fireworks show and a
performance by Preservation Hall Jazz Band, who will be making
their 40th appearance on the summer concert winery stage. Fresh
from their 2013 Grammy performance, the group will entertain the
crowd with their classic New Orleans-style jazz, performing old
favorites and hits from their latest album, That’s It, released in
2013.
The concert series continues on July 5 with Big Bad Voodoo
Daddy. With their newest release, Rattle Them Bones, the big-band
style swing group celebrated their 20th anniversary last year. Back
by popular demand, Five for Fighting singer-songwriter John
Ondrasik will perform for the second time in the vineyard on July
12. Known for hit singles such as “Superman” and “100 Years,”
Ondrasik will perform popular selections from his sixth album,
Bookmarks, released in 2013. On July 18, Dave Koz and Friends
Summer Horns 2014 with Mindi Abair, Gerald Albright and
Richard Elliot – four of today’s pre-eminent saxophone players –

18

will deliver an evening of hits, including songs from their Grammynominated album Summer Horns, which debuted at No. 1 on
Billboard’s Current Contemporary Jazz Albums chart.
The series will conclude on July 19 with singer-songwriter and
acoustic guitarist Colbie Caillat. A California native, Caillat broke
into the music scene in 2007 with her hit single “Bubbly.” The
Grammy-winner’s bright third album All of You will be the ideal
backdrop for the late summer soiree.
What began as a small venture in the arts with ticket prices just
under $5, the Robert Mondavi Winery Summer Concert Series has
evolved into a wine, food and music event that is a highlight of the
summer season in the Napa Valley. Robert Mondavi Winery has
played host to more than 100 performers and draws more extensive
crowds each summer, showcasing world-renowned and awardwinning R&B, jazz and pop artists alike.
Throughout the festival’s 45-year history, more than $2 million
in proceeds has been raised to assist a number of Napa Valley-based
organizations. Proceeds from ticket sales of this year’s series will
directly benefit Napa Valley Music Programs.
All performances begin at 7 p.m. and are held at the Robert
Mondavi Winery at 7801 St. Helena Highway in Oakville, Napa
Valley. Tickets are on sale now. Prices vary by performance. For
additional information and to purchase tickets, including General
Admission, Patio, Reserved and Dinner seats, visit

Hagafen Cellars’ Winemaking Pioneer
BY ALEXANDRA CHARSLEY

Open Daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
160 Silverado Trail, Napa, CA 94558
(707) 252-0781 | www.hagafen.com

At Hagafen Cellars, Winemaker Ernie Weir believes in producing
wines that he personally enjoys; Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon,
Chardonnay, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Roussanne, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah
and White Riesling. He also produces Brut Cuvée sparkling wines as
well as several late harvest dessert wines. These small-lot releases allow
them to hand-select and produce the absolute best of each year’s
production. With more than thirty years of winemaking experience,
Ernie has created a winery with many wines earning numerous awards.
He is in fact a pioneer that has created a niche that he loves.
Ernie first came to Napa in the 1970s when he worked for Domaine
Chandon while attending UC Davis to study viticulture and enology. In
1979, as a side business with purchased grapes, he started making wine
under the Hagafen name which means “vine” in Hebrew. “During that
time, we custom crushed our production so I was able to learn so much
from other winemakers and winemaking situations. However, there is
nothing like stepping into the fire to encourage you to learn fast and
correctly what works for you,” says Ernie.
In 1986, Ernie and his wife Irit purchased their vineyard called Weir
Family Vineyard II where the winery was later built. It consists of 12
acres of Cabernet Sauvignon. Later, they added the nine-acre Weir
Family Vineyard III, with three acres each of Cabernet Franc, Syrah and
Riesling. Their own vineyards now yield roughly half of the grapes used
for their annual production. Their grapes are organically grown
including some that are purchased and their production is kosher for
Passover. Ernie’s daily involvement in the two sides of wine production,
grape growing and winemaking, ensures the superb quality of their
releases.
In 1997, Ernie left Domaine Chandon to build the Hagafen Cellars
winery and tasting room located in Napa along the Silverado Trail. The
winery opened in 2000 and their wines have experienced much success
and will continue to do so. Ernie is proud of their success and honored
to be able to produce these fine wines for your enjoyment. As Ernie
says, “Fine wine starts in the vineyard with careful management. I strive
to take advantage of Napa Valley’s geology and climate to produce the
best wine varietals. I interfere as little as possible with the soil in order
to create a balance that minimizes the chemical and erosion impact. As
a sustainable Green Winery, we respect the values of conservation and
land stewardship while embracing innovative practices. Once harvest is
completed, I undertake the second part of my job, winemaking. This
presents an interesting challenge every time since each year the growing
season and harvest are unique and different. I never seek to change
what Nature has provided. My goal is always to showcase the best that
our land can produce. For these reasons, our total annual production is
only 8,000 cases.”

A Napa Valley Icon

For first-time visitors to the Napa Valley and “newcomers” to the world of wine, Sutter
Home is a welcoming destination that offers guests a friendly staff, great selection of wines
and one of the only complimentary tastings in the Napa Valley. The Visitors Center is open
daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and offers not only an incredible selection of wines, but a
well-appointed gift shop with something for everybody. Also, be sure to take a self-guided
tour of the beautiful gardens.
This beautiful Victorian home, gardens and the winery’s history span over 140 years and
is truly a jewel in the Napa Valley. In 1874, Swiss German immigrant John Thomann built
a small winery and distillery in St. Helena. Upon his death the property was sold to another
Swiss family, the Leunbergers, who renamed the estate Sutter Home.
Shut down during Prohibition, the winery was abandoned until 1948 when it was
purchased by John and Mario Trinchero, immigrant brothers of New York City whose
family had been active in the Italian wine business. The Trinchero family had a great vision,
passion and apparently, an insight into consumer tastes. They changed the way Americans
enjoyed wine by offering them high-quality varietals at an affordable price.
In 1968, Mario’s oldest son Louis “Bob” Trinchero, sampled a homemade Zinfandel from
the Sierra Foothills, was taken by the robust and rich flavors of the wine so Sutter Home
began to make Amador County Zinfandel.
In 1972, Bob’s newest innovation was White Zinfandel. Originally called Oeil de
Perdrix, the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms demanded the name be in
English hence “White Zinfandel.” In 1975, a wonderful accident occurred which change
the face of the wine industry. About 1000 gallons of bleed off juice of the Amador
Zinfandel refused to ferment to dryness and retained a substantial amount of sugar so Bob
put it aside. Two weeks later, he tasted the wine and it was sweet, had a lovely pink color
and tasted great. By 1987, Sutter Home White Zinfandel became the best-selling premium

wine in the United States.
But, that was just the
beginning. Sutter Home began
producing Moscato long before
it was “cool,” continuously
staying one taste bud ahead of
the consumer with new varietals
such as Bubbly Pink Moscato
and Red Moscato.
In 2001, Sutter Home
launched one of the first breast
cancer awareness programs.
Through the “Sutter Home for
Hope®” program, the company
has raised more than $800,000
toward breast cancer awareness
and research.
Always innovators and
understanding the needs of their
consumers, in 1990 Sutter
Home hit another home run.
This fall will be the 24th annual
“Build a Better Burger®” recipe
contest which demystifies the
wine experience by pairing
America’s favorite meal with its
favorite wine, Sutter Home.
With a grand prize of $50,000 it
continues to bring together
burger and wine enthusiasts
every year.
The Sutter Home portfolio
has over 20 different wines and
something for everybody,
without pretension and at a
reasonable price point.
While sampling some of
Sutter Home’s “iconic” wines be
sure to ask your server about
Sutter Homes Wine Clubs.
There are three clubs including
the Sutter Home Lifestyle Club,
the Red Only Sutter Home
Lifestyle Club, and the Home
Sweet Home Wine Club. The
Lifestyle Club selections are
automatically delivered to your
home or business four times a
year in winter, spring, fall, and
of course the holidays. The
Home Sweet Home Wine Club
receives two or three bottles of
Sutter’s sweet wines six times
per year.

ZD Wines Eco Tour: A Longstanding
Philosophy on Organic Grape Growing
More than 40 years ago, as the Napa
Valley was making its first mark on the global
wine scene, ZD Wines Cofounder Norman
deLeuze set the stage for a winemaking
tradition rooted in sustainable, organic
farming. ZD’s 1969 Pinot Noir was the first
wine to mention the Carneros region on its
label, well before it was designated an official
AVA (American Viticultural Area) in 1983.
Three generations and two organic vineyard
certifications later, ZD Wines continues to
produce top notch Pinot Noir, Chardonnay
and Cabernet Sauvignon crafted under the
same organic philosophy Norman took pride
in. ZD celebrates this philosophy and its
founder every spring with the release of
Founder’s Reserve Pinot Noir. Made from
100% organically farmed ZD Carneros Estate
fruit, this Pinot Noir has been an annual way
to commemorate Norman since 2007.
ZD Carneros Estate includes
a six-acre Pinot Noir parcel that
was planted in 1997. It is this
exact vineyard block that has
been the centerpiece of ZD
Reserve Pinot Noir since its first
harvest, turning out a
phenomenal crop year after year.
The estate property also features
23 acres of Chardonnay planted
in the early 1980s. This acreage
has long provided a foundation for ZD
Carneros Reserve Chardonnay. In fact, ZD
produced Chardonnay from this vineyard for
a full decade before the opportunity to
purchase it arose in 1996. The winery
jumped to secure it, and Norman
immediately began work converting its vines
to certified organic status. The vineyard
thrived instantly as new organic farming
techniques encouraged vigorous growth.
Three short years later, ZD Wines Carneros
Estate received official recognition from
California Certified Organic Farmers
(CCOF).
For a true hands-on vineyard experience
with ZD, spring is the ideal season to attend
an Eco Tour and Tasting at the Rutherford

32

Estate vineyard. The three-acre Cabernet
Sauvignon parcel located at the winery site
was certified organic by CCOF the same year
as its Carneros Estate vineyard. The
comprehensive Eco Tour and
Tasting offers visitors a glimpse of
the same organic farming features
ZD implements in Carneros –
cover crops, insectaries, owl boxes
and composting to name a few.
Guests are guaranteed to walk
away with a deeper appreciation
for both organic grape growing
and the attention to detail it takes
to make world-class wine. The
tour continues to be a testament
to founder Norman deLeuze –
much like the Founder’s Reserve
Carneros Pinot Noir produced
from 100% organically farmed
ZD fruit.
So what does ZD’s organic
farming approach entail? To
maintain healthy, fertile soils, the
winery plants cover crops such as
mustard and wildflowers to
replenish the nutrients in the soil
and to attract insects beneficial to the grapes.
Mustard, for example, allows the soil to
better absorb water and minerals while
daisies attract insects such as ladybugs to
help keep pests at bay. The presence of

natural predators such as hawks, owls,
starlings and bats is encouraged to further
strengthen pest control. Owl boxes in the
vineyard help keep these vineyard-friendly
creatures around, and composting also
contributes to a healthy vineyard ecosystem.
ZD’s vineyard equipment is run fully on
biodiesel.
In addition to making organic farming
upgrades at their Carneros Estate property,
the deLeuze family undertook the project of
restoring the estate’s historic turn-of-thecentury farm house built in 1897. Work
began in 2011 when St. Helena architect
Wayne Leong was hired to design and
develop a plan to refurbish the house and
add an eco-friendly farm building. The
design incorporated photovoltaic solar
power, polycarbonate siding and a rain water
collection system. Both projects were
completed in 2012. Although ZD Carneros
Estate is a private residence not open to the
public, there are occasional exclusive
opportunities to visit the vineyard and
celebrate the bounty of Carneros.
Having just released the 2012 vintage of
Founder’s Reserve Pinot Noir on May 1, ZD
is thrilled with how beautifully it is showing
and eager to share it with fellow Pinot Noir
lovers. Aged for 15 months in 100% French
oak, it is an excellent expression of the
Carneros Estate vineyard’s terroir.
Aromas of dark cherries,
rhubarb, plum and cedar mingle
with subtle hints of toasted nuts,
sweet vanilla and clove. On the
palate, the ripe fruit and subtle
oak integrate beautifully and lead
to a long, silky finish. Although
the Founder’s Reserve is ready to
be enjoyed now, it has the
elegance and depth to age for
many years.
To order 2012 Founder’s Reserve Pinot
Noir and other ZD selections, or to book an
Eco Tour and Tasting, call the winery at
1-800-487-7757 or visit online at

to a close, an elegant dinner by Christopher
Kostow, The Restaurant at Meadowood’s threeMichelin-star chef, will celebrate the dynamic
community of Napa Valley’s winemakers,
growers, foragers, hunters, millers and
purveyors in a serene setting under the stars.
“The flavorful synergy between Napa Valley’s
wines, its abundance of world-renowned chefs
and the rich bounty of ingredients grown and
raised here is a perfect expression of this special
place,” notes David R. Duncan, honorary cochair of this year Auction Napa Valley and
president and CEO of Silver Oak and Twomey
Cellars. “Our Auction chefs’ generosity in
sharing their immense culinary talents is a
testament to the collaborative nature of our
community.”
New this year, Thursday’s Vintner Welcome
Parties will show Auction attendees Napa
Valley’s relaxed, down to earth side and the
casual camaraderie and deep agricultural roots
for which the region’s vintners are known. Slow,
spit-roasted pig, wood-fired pizzas and garden
inspired-creations are just a sampling of foods
that will grace tables set by groups of vintners

rodney strong vineyards Concert schedule
saturday, June 21 – Jazz Attack:
rick Braun, Peter White & euge groove
Nearly twenty years into his solo career, Rick Braun’s done just about everything, from backing the likes of Rod Stewart
and Sade to stepping out into the spotlight as a vocalist and a master of the trumpet and flugelhorn. Peter White has
maintained a reputation as one of the most versatile and prolific acoustic guitarists on the contemporary jazz landscape.
Armed with an unparalleled combination of lyricism and energy, he combines elements of jazz, pop and classical guitar
to create a sound that is singular and at the same time accessible to a broad audience. Steven Eugene Grove, better
known as Euge Groove, is an American smooth jazz saxophonist with a strong Top-40 background.  Always a crowd
favorite, Euge Groove is currently recording his ninth album, due out this summer.
Doors: 4 p.m./Show: 5 p.m. | Tickets:  VIP $90 / GA $60

sunday, July 13 – Chris isaak
In the course of Chris Isaak’s career, he has released nine extraordinary albums, been nominated for two Grammy
awards, acted in several motion pictures and starred in his own critically acclaimed TV series on Showtime. His legendary
shows with his longtime band Silvertone have entertained tens of thousands of people for over two decades. Even his
hair has its own fan club. Now, after more than a quarter of a century into his career, Chris Isaak finally created the
album he’s always wanted to make - Beyond the Sun, an ode to the glory days of Memphis’ Sun Studio and the visionary
artists who got their starts there - Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison, Carl Perkins and Jerry Lee Lewis. Isaak received
his career-changing break when his third album, Heart Shaped World became a hit when director David Lynch used
Isaak’s song “Wicked Game” in the film Wild at Heart.  Herb Ritts’ video for the song helped make Isaak a star and sex

symbol.

saturday, July 26 – Mindi Abair
with special guest elliot Yamin;  spencer day opens the show
In a career that spans seven solo albums and countless collaborations in the studio and live on stage, Mindi Abair has
made her mark on jazz, pop, rock, R&B, soul, funk and more. In addition to her acclaimed body of solo work that
includes ten # 1 radio hits and close to half a million albums sold, Abair was the featured saxophonist on the 2011
and 2012 seasons of American Idol, jammed with Paul Shaffer on the Late Show with David Letterman and joined
rock legends Aerosmith for their 2012 summer tour. More recently, Abair received a 2014 GRAMMY® nomination in
the Best Pop Instrumental Album category for Summer Horns, a #1 recording with her friends Dave Koz, Gerald
Albright and Richard Elliot.
Elliot Yamin is best known for being a fan favorite, and placing third, on the 2006 season of American Idol, which

launched his solo career that has featured gold certified albums and the hit single “Wait For You.”
Vocalist, pianist and modern “torch singer” Spencer Day was raised in the small town of Pinetop, Arizona by his mother,
an accomplished music teacher and soprano vocalist. Her talent and love of music encouraged him to become the singer
and musician that he is today, finding inspiration from the works of Cole Porter, Roy Orbison, Joni Mitchell and many
others. It has been an exciting few years for Day, having performed at the San Francisco Jazz Festival, Hollywood Bowl
and at various international events.  Spencer spent the winter of 2014 in the studio working on his fifth album Daybreak,
set for release on May 6, 2014. The album is filled with a selection of classic tunes from the 60s, in addition to five original songs that pay homage to the era. “The whole album is really a reflection of where I stand at this moment; more
happy than I’ve ever been in my adult life.”
Doors: 4 p.m./Show: 5 p.m. | Tickets:  VIP $75 / GA $50

saturday, August 16 – Chris Botti
In recent years, jazz trumpeter Chris Botti has seen his career launch into superstardom. “I always wanted to be the star,
but I wasn’t down on myself for being behind the scenes for so long.”  Botti has established his reputation touring with
Barbra Streisand, performing at the White House with Herbie Hancock, and selling more than three million albums,
including the 2013 release Impressions, a Grammy winner for Best Pop Instrumental Album. He has found a form of
creative expression that begins in jazz and expands beyond the limits of any single genre. With Impressions and the
albums that preceded it, Chris Botti has thoroughly established himself as one of the important, innovative figures of the
contemporary music world.
Doors: 4 p.m./Show: 5 p.m. | Tickets:  VIP $100 / GA $75

sunday, August 31 – tower of Power and Jonathan Butler
Since 1968, Tower of Power has been creating a unique kind of soul music, often hard to categorize, but the band’s
leader and founding member, Emilio Castillo, has labeled their sound as “Urban Soul Music.”  Fans have responded with
sold out concerts, driven by hits such as “What Is Hip,” “You’re Still A Young Man,” and more.  Rising from the streets of
Oakland, Tower’s rhythm section lays down a groove like no other, the multi-layered horns are powerful, and the way
they approach everything, from writing and arranging to mixing and performing, is totally their own. Combine all of that
with an outstanding lead vocalist and you have one of the most dynamic groups of musicians to ever hit the stage.
Jonathan Butler is a South African native whose expansive musical gift has earned accolades in the R&B, contemporary
jazz and gospel fields.  In 2014, Butler is celebrating what he calls “the season of me” and finally admitting that he is
living his dream. He tells the story of his life and loves in the eleven original songs that “came from the heart” on his
forthcoming Artistry Music album, “Living My Dream,” which will be released June 24.

J Vineyards & Winery – ‘Heaven Around Every Corner!’
BY SUE STRAIGHT, THE WINE WENCH

J Vineyards & Winery truly offers, as Owner/Founder Judy Jordan
says, “heaven around every corner you turn.” It is conveniently
located just south of the charming hamlet of Healdsburg on Old
Redwood Highway. If you are planning on visiting Sonoma County,
take my word for it and don’t miss this wonderful place!
The J experience starts as you wend your way up the vineyardlined driveway. Park your car, walk over a wooden bridge that
crosses a creek (with a resident river otter – how cool is that?) and
enter the ultra-modern concrete and glass building that houses the
winery and Visitor Center. The Visitor Center is large, bright and
tastefully decorated. A long tasting bar spans the back of the room
and the wall behind the bar is a work of art. A tasteful selection of J
wines, glassware, books, logo wear and more is artfully displayed on
glass shelves and tables around the room.
There are several delicious options available for tasting wine at J:

Wine Country
Elegance

The Bubble Room ($75 per person/$60 for Club J members) is a
delightful sit-down wine and food pairing experience, where six
wonderful wines are paired with tasty bites created by Executive
Chef, Erik Johnson. I experienced this myself and highly suggest that
you take an hour or so to relax and enjoy this amazing food and
wine experience.
The Legacy Room Tasting ($30 per person/$10 for Club J members)
is a seated tasting, held in the Legacy Reserve Lounge, where guests
may choose either five sparkling or still wines. Small bites to pair
with the wines are available for a modest charge.
The J Signature Tasting ($20 per person/complimentary for Club J
members) offers five wines, sparkling and still, all produced from J’s
Russian River vineyards.
The J Terrace Tasting ($45 per person/discounts for Club J members)
offers four wines, sparkling and still, perfectly paired with tasty small
bites, on the terrace (weather permitting).
The J Tour & Tasting ($30 per person/$10 for Club J members) is
an in-depth one- hour tour that offers visitors a behind-the-scenes
peek at the workings of J Vineyards & Winery. Strategically placed
tasting stations offer sips of five different wines for visitors to sip as
they stroll.
With all of these delicious, educational and fun options available,
there truly is something for everyone at J Vineyards & Winery. Take
my word on this – plan ahead and book your reservations! Tell ‘em,
“The Wine Wench® sent me!”

they’re produced.”

Hamel Family Wines’ Grand Opening
Winery, Caves and tasting experience showcases the Natural Beauty of the estate
Hamel Family Wines, an exciting new addition to Sonoma Valley,
the birthplace of California’s famed wine industry, announced the
celebration of its grand opening on Monday, June 2. The 7,500square-foot winery features limited-production premium wines from
estate-grown, organically farmed vineyards, led by two generations of
the Hamel family – vintners Pam and George F Hamel, Jr., managing
.
director George F Hamel III and winemaker John B. Hamel II.
.
Renowned winemaker Martha McClellan serves as winemaking
consultant and respected organic viticulturist Phil Coturri assists with
vineyard operations and development.
Hamel Family Wines, located on the Hamel Family Ranch at
15401 Sonoma Highway, sits at the base of the beautiful Mayacamas
Mountain range in a region that is quickly becoming synonymous
with the finest Sonoma Valley blends, showcasing varietals that
include Cabernet Sauvignon and Bordeaux-inspired blends,
Zinfandel and Grenache. The property was acquired by George, Jr.
and Pam Hamel in 2010 in partnership with their sons, George III
and John. The property had primarily been family-owned for 100plus years. The history of family ownership is an important element
that resonates deeply with the Hamels’ vision of presenting the
winery as a home to its loyal customers and guests. The extraordinary
124-acre property encompasses a 6,875-square-foot Estate House
from which guests can savor panoramic views of the Sonoma Valley, a
7,500-square-foot winery, and 12,000 square feet of immaculate
caves for barrel storage, tours, private dining and events.
“Since purchasing this property, it has been my family’s vision and
commitment to create estate, terroir-inspired wines that reflect the
purity of the land and embrace Sonoma Valley’s seminal role in the
development of the California wine industry,” said vintner George
Hamel, Jr. “Together with some of the industry’s most celebrated
talents and my two sons, George III and John, we seek simply to be
the latest stewards of the land, honor its heritage, and let visitors and

54

locals alike discover this remarkable estate we hold so dear to our
hearts. It is our hope that we continue the legacy of the estate, and
that people will taste the heartfelt joy, passion and care that has gone
into producing these wines and creating an incomparable
experience.”
Visitors to Hamel Family Wines are greeted by a stand of hundredyear-old olive trees surrounded by gently rolling vineyards. Both the
Estate House and the production facility were designed in
partnership with Gould Evans, an award-winning architecture firm
whose principals and associates are united around a common vision:
to create environments that transform their surroundings, engage
their occupants, sustain their environment and support their clients’
missions. In collaboration with Gould Evans, Angela Free, principal
of Angela Free Design worked hand-in-hand to develop interior
finishes and furnishings. Picturesquely nestled against a slope of oak
woodland and manzanita chaparral, the architectural design of the
winery takes its inspiration from the natural beauty of the site. The
layout of the estate celebrates the expansive views of Sonoma Valley’s
vineyards from its charming mountainside location, inviting guests to
experience the array of indoor and outdoor spaces created for the
enjoyment of the wines. The winery’s design showcases fundamental
materials of black walnut wood, travertine and basalt stone,
combined with a rammed-earth wall that spans the length of the
Estate House and captures the natural beauty and texture of the
surrounding earth.
To further showcase this special estate and its wines, Hamel
Family Wines has partnered with multi-faceted branding and design
guru Ken Fulk and his company, Ken Fulk Inc., to curate once-in-alifetime experiences for guests of the property, such as dinner in the
vineyards with chef Gary Danko, campfire concerts and an outdoor
movie series. Ken Fulk Inc. is a creative think tank specializing in
multi-disciplinary design projects that range from residences to
restaurants and gala fundraisers to private parties. Hamel Family

Aventine Coming to Glen Ellen’s Historic Gristmill
Something is happening in the town of Glen Ellen. The once
sleepy hamlet is awakening as a foodies’ delight of great restaurants
manned by top-flight chefs. It could be that Glen Ellen is becoming a
fine dining mecca similar to Yountville. The newest illustrious
restaurant helmed by a high-profile chef is on the horizon. Chef
Adolfo Veronese will open Aventine Glen Ellen at the revered 170year-old Gristmill in Jack London Village. Aventine Glen Ellen will be
a straight-out Osteria with a full bar, on premise brewery, inside and
outside dining, and fresh, farm-to-table modern Italian dishes. Perfect
for weddings and private events, this location captures the beauty of
its natural surroundings and rich Sonoma history.
Aventine Glen Ellen will be the third location for Chef Veronese
and his brother Gian-Paolo (both are the children of Angela Alioto
and respected restaurateur Adolfo Sr. of Osteria Romano fame.)
Along with partner Rodrigo Nevado (founder of the successful
Mexican-based Tropisueño in San Francisco), the group founded the
wildly popular Taverna Aventine in 2007 in San Francisco. In 2012
they opened Aventine Hollywood and quickly became the talk of the
town. For their third venture, the Aventine team chose a more rural
location. Aventine Glen Ellen will be their first foray into wine
country. “We all grew up in San Francisco and have our own fond
memories of family trips to Sonoma,” said Nevado, “We were ecstatic
to find this spectacular, historical building. It has alcoves, different
levels and terraces, all of which are right up our alley. The location,

www.WineCountrythisWeek.com

nestled next to Sonoma Creek, is breathtaking and creates a tranquil
setting-perfect for any kind of private event.”
Another signature of the Aventine restaurants is their inclination to
find historical buildings and incorporate a stunning design aesthetic
to create gorgeous, jaw-dropping interiors. Taverna Aventine in San
Francisco is anchored by a 150-year-old sea wall, a remnant from the
infamous Barbary Coast. Aventine Hollywood yielded stained glass
windows and original brick walls over 100 years old that had been
covered by a previous tenant.
The Gristmill that will house Aventine Glen Ellen is one of the
oldest buildings in the area. Dating back to 1830s when it was built
by General Vallejo, the building started as a saw mill before being
converted into a gristmill. The Gristmill water wheel, which is over
40 feet high, still stands and works today. Then in the 1850s it was
purchased by Joshua Chauvet from the General and amongst other
things he made it one of the first wineries in the region. It is also
known that Jack London wrote many pieces of his work in the top
floor of the building. In the 1960s Janis Joplin frequented the
building when it operated as an entertainment center.
Aventine Glen Ellen is located at 14301 Arnold Drive and will be
open for dinner six days a week from 4 to 10 p.m. with Happy Hour
Tuesday to Friday from 4 to 7 p.m. Additional brunch will be served
on Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Closed on Mondays.

Holman Ranch Olive Oil Now Available at the Tasting Room
approximately 19 acres of undulating terrain. The wines produced
are unfined and crafted to deliver the true varietal of the grape from
harvest to bottle. The climate and terroir of the appellation has
played a critical part in the success of their wines. The warmth of
the inland valley coupled with the cooling marine layer has proven
to be an ideal microclimate for the production of Pinot Noir and
Pinot Gris. The vineyards’ Burgundy Clones have thrived from the
perfect blend of ideal climate, southern exposure and thin rocky
soils.
The estate wines of Holman Ranch include: Pinot Noir, Pinot
Gris, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Rosé of Pinot Noir.
Carefully hand-harvested, cold pressed and bottled, the Extra Virgin
Olive Oil produced from the fruits of our trees has a delightfully
distinctive flavor.
Tucked away in the rolling hills of Carmel Valley, historic Holman
Ranch provides a unique and memorable setting for weddings,
special events, family gatherings, corporate retreats, and teambuilding events. With its charming gardens, stunning mountain
views and serenity, this private estate affords old-world charm while
providing modern day conveniences. This stunning Property
includes a fully restored stone hacienda, overnight guest rooms,
vineyards, olive grove, horse stables and more.

Holman Ranch Olive Oil grown on its estate in Carmel Valley is
now available to the public through its website,
www.holmanranch.com, or at the Holman Ranch tasting Room at 19
E. Carmel Valley Road in Carmel Valley.
Extra virgin olive oil. There is nothing quite like it. It has been
called liquid gold, or green gold, a title that is well deserved.
Historically, it has been used for everything from lighting lamps to
moisturizing skin and, of course, in the kitchen! It can transform the
simplest of ingredients into something sublime. The taste of EVOO
can range from fruity and grassy, to straight up peppery and a
myriad of nuanced flavor profiles in between.
For more than five years, Holman Ranch has cultivated a
distinctive olive grove located on a south facing hill in the vineyard.
The grove is comprised of 100 trees with multiple Tuscan, Spanish
and French species planted. These species consist of 25 Frantoio, 25
Leccino, 10 Mission, 25 Coratina, 5 Pendolino, 10 Picholine. The
olive grove is planted in shale for the best production and harvesting
results possible. Holman Ranch harvests it fruit by hand in
December, which is then milled, producing a superb, high quality
product.
Although the olive grove is not certified organic, the trees are
farmed sustainably. An interesting fact is that olive trees are alternate
bearing, which means that one year they may produce 180 gallons
worth of oil, while next year they may produce only 10 gallons
worth oil. The certified EVOO is estate-grown and bottled from
Holman Ranch’s 100 Tuscan, Spanish and French variety olive trees.
The olive oil comes in 375 ML/12.6 FL. OZ bottles and costs $25
per bottle.
Located at the north eastern tip of the Carmel Valley Appellation,
the family-owned Holman Ranch resides approximately 12 miles
inland from the Pacific Coast. Immersed in history and romance, the
ranch has not only proven to be an excellent growing location for
our vineyards but also for the Tuscan variety olive trees which have
flourished under the temperate climate.
Holman Ranch estate-grown wine varieties are planted on
