INTELLIGENCE FOR THE WINE CONSUMER


BY LEN NAPOLITANO

Do sulfites in wine give me a headache?


If the sulfite level in wine and some foods is high, it
may be enough to trigger a reaction in people with an allergy
to sulfites. Although individual thresholds for a reaction vary,
in 1988 the U.S. government established a limit and required a
label stating Contains Sulfites to appear on every bottle of
wine made with more than the maximum allowed amount of
10 milligrams per liter. Even though a small percentage of the
U.S. population, estimated to be around one percent, might
sneeze or cough from drinking wine containing sulfites
exceeding the limit, about ten percent of the one percent will
suffer a more serious reaction, such as shortness of breath.
Headaches are not a typical reaction, even though people who
get them from wine usually blame the sulfites.
In the majority of cases, the cause is something else:
dehydration from not drinking enough water while consuming
wine; consuming wine on an empty stomach; a wines high

alcohol content; or from histamines, another natural


byproduct of winemaking, present more in red wine than
white. Some people take an antihistamine in advance of
drinking red wine in order to prevent or mitigate a headache,
or they avoid red wine altogether by choosing only white
wine.
Experimenting with different producers might uncover one
that makes your favorite varietal wine with the right amount of
sulfites for your system. Needless to say, the cause of any
physical reaction from wine is difficult to pin down without a
doctors assistance. There are dozens of compounds in wine,
any one of which could cause a sensitive person to have an
allergic reaction. If you suffer any reaction as a result of
drinking wine, you should consult a doctor.
And, ask your doctor about trying wines with low sulfite
content, i.e., organic wines.

Microclimates:
How Location Impacts, Well, Everything!
Terroir. Its one of those words you hear used all the time, but
no one ever really stops to define their usage, and more than
sometimes, its used to cover up ignorance via pretense, which
drives me nuts. Terroir is easy enough to define: every decision
we make about location, varietal, trellising choices, amount of
irrigation, when and how we pick, when and how we ferment
you get the idea, I hope; thats all terroir. Its simply the total
environment and the decisions about that environment, from
planting to grapegrowing through to picking and winemaking.
And it all starts with where you decide to grow your wines years
before there are even grapes.
What makes a wine valley, anyway? While its true you can
grow grapes just about anywhere you can get water and soil
together, that doesnt mean youll end up with wine-quality grapes.
Napa was recognized quite early on in its settlement for what

makes it so special. Yes, there is good heat from its north-south


orientation, but it is also a narrow valley to channel air flow, and it
is close to the bay, which is what allows for the forty- and fiftydegree diurnal temperature swings that produce sun-soaked,
fruit-laden red wines with retained acidity, produced through cool
nights. Equally, consider Carneros and its sand and clay slopes so
close to the bay. Cold climate grapes like Chardonnay and Pinot
Noir produce scintillating wines precisely because of the locale,
needing more cold to show their best.
So, that naturally raises questions about location: which is
better, you want to know, valley floor, benchland, ocean-exposed
or hillsides, right? The answers depend on what you are trying to
grow, where you want to do so, and how expensive your end
product needs to be for it to sell and pay the bills. Access or best
grapes is often a real question addressed by trade-offs in the
growers mind. Being on level ground, closer to transport
corridors, and with a bountiful supply of grapes sounds ideal; level
ground often means drainage issues and the potential to overcrop,
car exhaust ends up on grape skins and thus impacts wine flavor,
and grape quality varies quite a bit by location and varietal most
of the Valley is planted to hardier red grapes for a reason. Even
there, though, there are exceptions as To Kalon, perhaps the
greatest and most reknowned of American vineyards, breaks most
of these rules in terms of location and drainage, accessibility and
crop loads.
Ultimately, the issue of micro-climate isnt just one of ocean
exposure, bay fogs or evening breezes. Its part of a complex dance
in the winegrowers mind, balancing creative desire, agricultural
possibilities and economic reality. The next time you stop in at a
tasting room, ask more Why questions and youll gain more
insight into the philosophy behind whats in the glass. Absolutely,
that sensory experience is the whole point of everything we do, but
how we get there is often many opaque years in the making unless
folks go digging beyond the standard taste descriptors. Trust me,
you will appreciate what is in your glass even more so enjoy!

Josh Stein has been in the Napa wine business for more than a decade, and, in

WENTE VINEYARDS
Celebrating Five Generations in Wine in the Historic Livermore Valley
Livermore Valley, with its rich heritage and variety of wine tasting experiences,
should be a top destination that people consider when planning their next wine
country getaway. And as the countrys oldest, continuously operated familyowned winery and Californias First Family of Chardonnay, Wente Vineyards
would be a good place to start the journey. The winery, led by fourth and fifth
generation family members, has clearly proven their leadership both in
winegrowing and in being one of Californias premier wine country destinations.
This year, Wente Vineyards celebrates its 130th vintage anniversary. The
winery is located just east of San Francisco in the historic Livermore Valley. At the
historic Wente Vineyards Estate Winery & Tasting Room and Vineyard Tasting
Room, guests are offered two unique opportunities to experience the winemaking
process. Tours of the winery facility allow visitors to see an insiders view of the
Estate Winerys state-of-the-art equipment in operation, including the Small Lot
Winery. At the Vineyard Tasting Room, they can enjoy a special tasting and tour
in the historic sandstone caves.
The newly unveiled Winemakers Studio is yet another way for consumers to
learn more about wine. This state-of-the-art wine education studio offers an
intimate, behind-the-scenes look at grape growing, wine and food pairing, and
wine tasting experiences for both the wine novice and expert that they will
remember long after they have left the property.
This year, Wente Vineyards also celebrates its 28th anniversary of entertaining
guests with delicious wine country cuisine at The Restaurant at Wente Vineyards.
The Restaurant at Wente Vineyards uses locally grown organic ingredients
sourced within a 100-mile radius and features ingredient-driven California wine
country cuisine. While the menu holds its foundation in American dishes, it is

22

www.WineCountryThisWeek.com

influenced by French and


Italian provincial cuisine. The
seasonal menu changes daily,
utilizing produce from The
Restaurants organic garden.
Guests can choose from more
than 1,000 selections on the
restaurants award-winning
wine list. Recent accolades
include the 2013 Wine
Spectator Best of Award of
Excellence and high scores
from Zagat for consistently
delivering with wine friendly
Cal-Med cuisine.
For those guests who are
musically inclined, they are
sure to enjoy the Concerts at
Wente Vineyards. Every
summer, for more than 25
years, the concerts at Wente
Vineyards have showcased
world-renowned entertainers
in the winerys picturesque
natural amphitheater. Guests
enjoy pre-concert sunset
dinners outdoors or in The
Restaurant at Wente
Vineyards. This years artists
include Chris Isaak, Wynonna
and The Big Noise, Tony
Bennett, Frankie Valli and The
Four Seasons, Earth, Wind &
Fire and The Beach Boys.
Wente Vineyards is also the
only winery in Livermore
Valley to offer a championship
18-hole public golf course,
designed by golfing legend
Greg Norman, which traverses
three distinct eco-system
native woodlands, mature
vineyards and rolling hills of
natural grasslands.
Family, food,
entertainment, and of course,
the wines beckon visitors to
experience the legacy that is
Wente Vineyards.

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, Thats It, released in
2013.
The concert series continues with 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

Grammy-winners 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

WCtW: Describe the perfect day in wine country.


JA: A perfect day in Sonoma starts with a delicious
breakfast at the Sonoma Golf Club, affiliated with
The Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa. Sit
back and enjoy their signature lemon cottage
cheese pancakes, while overlooking the scenic
golf course and sipping your mimosa.
Afterward, head over to Robert Hunter
Winery for their unique garden tour at their
private estate. I am fond of their sparkling and
Pinot Noir.
Then its off to the VJB Vineyards & Cellars
to taste their wonderful Italian varietals and for a
little lunch from their Mercado. They are serving
delicious grilled paninis and pizzas from their
brick oven, and have great picnic tables in the
patio of their brand new Villagio.
After a short drive across the valley, you will
arrive at Repris, Sonomas newest and most
exciting winery (open by appointment only).
Their friendly crew tours you through their
facility and into their enormous 18,000-squarefoot caves for barrel tasting. Then they load you
into an ATV and whisk you through the vineyards
to the top of the mountain. Youre now looking
down at the entire valley with views spanning all
the way to San Francisco. What a jaw dropping
view!
Now for a little pampering, Fairmonts Willow
Stream Spa, offers a wide array treatments to
sooth your stress away. Start with a soak in the hot
spring pools which are filled from a natural
spring. Your Provider will come for you for your
hot stone massage.
Now if you are not completely mush, its time
for the Chefs tasting menu with wine pairing in
Sant, the resorts signature fine dining restaurant.

WCtW: Whats your favorite overall varietal?


rM: I am a Pinot guy, sometimes a Zin, I do like
Cabs, balanced Viogners are really sexy Adrian
Fogs Pinot is something I am really fond of.
WCtW: What winery do you think has the best
over-the-top experience to offer visitors?
rM: Js Bubble Room
WCtW: Where do you send guests that want to
learn about wine?
rM: Korbel if they want to learn about bubbles,
Benzinger for still wines.
WCtW: Where would you take friends to learn
about/taste organic wines?
rM: Littorai, amazing high-end tour and very
detailed not to mention delicious wine!
WCtW: What areas would you recommend that
are not part of the popular wine country?
rM: Coombsville, Green Valley, Sebastopol, west of
Dry Creek, Howell Mountain, south of Petaluma
WCtW: Who is your favorite new winery or hot
spot wine bar/tasting room?
rM: DArgenzio on Thursday nights is a
happening place old and new all at the same
time. Food trucks come up to provide food.
WCtW: Tell us the best wineries to bring pets.
rM: Kaz, Lambert Bridge, Stryker, Wilson
there are more than you can imagine!
WCtW: Which winery has your favorite
cave/cellar tour?
rM: Repris, B Wise, Jarvis, Realm cant
decide!
WCtW: Whats the best wine country picnic spot?
rM: Gustafson! Bennet Lane for sure! Lambert
Bridge argh, so many!

WCtW: If you were to visit just one winery, which


would you choose and why?
LAd: If I could visit only one, I would visit Spring
Mountain Winery, because it is so breathtakingly
beautiful, and the wines are so incredible.
WCtW: What winery do you think has the best
over-the-top experience to offer visitors?
LAd: I think that Far Niente is rather over-thetop; its place within the history of Napa Valley
winemaking is fascinating, the building is
gorgeous, the grounds are stunning and to see the
antique car collection is really quite special.
WCtW: Where do you send guests that want to
learn about wine?
LAd: If they are newcomers to the world of wine I
might send them to Beringer for one of the
educational tastings with Dean, who is so
fabulous. He makes it all so accessible, easy, and
enjoyable. If my guests are budding collectors, I
might send them to Shafer, where they do a more
formal educational tasting.
WCtW: Where would you take friends to learn
about/taste organic wines?
LAd: I think Grgich Hills is an excellent example
of organic wines that are absolutely superb. I like
their whites as much as their reds.
WCtW: Who has your favorite cave tour?
LAd: My favorite cave/cellar tour is at Del Dotto
winery; but I may be influenced by their Cab
Franc.
WCtW: What areas and/or wineries would you
recommend that are not part of the popular wine
country?
LAd: I think that the Glen Ellen area is still a bit of
a hidden gem, its so rural and peaceful, and
beautiful.

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

MOSHIN VINEYARDS
Twenty-Five Years of Russian River Valley Pinot and Smiles
BY JOSH STEIN

MOSHIN VINEYARDS
Open daily from 11:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Moshin Vineyards and Winery makes a small amount of many, many wines, and thats a
really good thing. Started in 1989 by then-San Jose math instructor Rick Moshin with the
purchase of ten acres of prime Pinot Noir vineyard in the Russian River Valley and the 200
cases of its first release, the winery today features a unique four-tier gravity flow design and
twenty-eight acres of vines, proof that dreams can come true with hard work and smart
planning, resulting in an annual production of 10,000 cases at year twenty-five.
Pinot Noir and its need for delicate handling have guided everything about todays
winery, the goal being, in Ricks words, a wine that expresses a truthful view into the heart
of the vine. To do this, all farming is sustainable to support vineyard health, the
winemaking is conducted as unobtrusively as possible, and the winery itself facilitates
energy conservation via its gravity flow design. The result is an array of small bottlings of
Chardonnay, Merlot, Motion Potion Dessert Wines, Petite Sirah, Pinot Gris, Sauvignon
Blanc, and Zinfandel, in addition to the multiple Pinot Noirs, and, unsurprisingly, just about
everything has done extremely well at international wine competitions.
The bright and airy tasting room is open every day except Christmas Day and New Years
Day from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and the tasting fee is refundable with a purchase. Tours of
the winery and explanation of its design philosophy are also available by appointment, with
part of the fee also waived with purchases. The staff is truly friendly in the way that makes
Sonoma County the very different wine country that it is, and I defy anyones claim of not
finding something to enjoy amongst the winerys offerings. In other words, there are a lot of
reasons theyre at the quarter-century mark.

CoLes CHop House


Where Delicious Dreams Come True!

Coles Chop House, located in historic downtown Napa, is


known for good things: fine dining, prime steaks, a select wine list
and excellent guest services qualities that are second to none in
the restaurant industry. This Classic American Steak House is also
recognized for making dreams come true which has certainly been
the case for founder and top chef, Greg Cole, business partner and
wife, Beth Fairbairn and experienced manager, Eric Keffer. Happily,
Greg and Beth decided the time had come to promote Eric Keffer to
one-third partner and Vice President of Operations. After working
for Coles Chop House and Celadon a combined total of 12 years,
Eric will realize a life-long dream of owning his own restaurant.
Greg and Beth, who hold the remaining two-thirds, and who over
the years have built a reputation on the importance of community
and staff, are proud of this newly formed partnership.
Eric is not only a tremendous asset to Coles, hes family, says
Greg, who also co-founded Celadon restaurant in Napa. His
commitment to the business and to our team, and the creative
solutions and ideas he brings to the table are invaluable. We just
couldnt have asked for a better partner.
Eric began his restaurant career in 1993 as a bus person for
Piatti Italian Restaurant and Bar in Yountville. With time, focus and
determination, Eric worked his way up from server to manager
while studying at San Francisco State College with a degree in
political science. In 2002, he joined Greg Cole and Beth Fairbain as

FEATURED WINERIES

restaurant manager for Celadon in Napa. It wasnt long, four years,


in fact, before Eric was promoted to manager at Coles Chop House.
In moving from manager to V.P. of Operations, Erics
responsibilities will change with time. However, he intends to keep
a close eye on what he feels matters the most, (besides delicious
food), a close connection with their guests. A positive engagement
with our guests is of paramount importance to me, Eric insists.
We want a lasting and memorable relationship with each and every
customer who walks through our doors.
Eric is honored and privileged to continue Greg and Beths
legacy of fine dining, community involvement and reputable
service. Outside of managing day-to day operations, Eric helped
create Coles popular whiskey program which involves custom
blending barrels of bourbon from a distillery in Kentucky. This
practice has established them as one of the Great Bourbon Bars of
America by the American Bourbon Association, adding to their
long list of accolades, including Michelin Guide Recommended,
OpenTable Diners Choice and Zagat Survey Top Rated
Steakhouse.
Erics passion and commitment goes beyond the service industry.
He is a dedicated family man, living happily in Napa Valley with his
wife, Heather Keffer, who happens to be a chef and trained in
hospitality at the prestigious Culinary Institute of America in Hyde
Park, New York. They have two young children, Bradley and
Elizabeth. When you come to Coles Chop House, you will see Eric
working the room, greeting guests and talking up the specials on
the menu.
At Coles Chop House, youll soon realize it wasnt only Erics
dreams that came true as partner and head of operations, but your
dreams of a top dining experience, with smiles all around, will have
come true for you too!

JUDDS HILL WINERY AND MICROCRUSH

Do you have a passion for wine? Have you dreamt about having your
name on your own label? If the answer is yes, then you need to pay a visit
to Judds Hill Winery and MicroCrush. Nestled amongst the vineyards on
the famed Silverado Trail, this small, family-owned winery offers a fun,
personalized and educational experience for would be vintners.
According to Food and Wine Magazine, Judds Hill is THE place for
custom winemaking in Napa Valley. And 2014 marks their 25th year of
making hand-crafted, ultra-premium, custom wine for everyone from
grape growers and wine enthusiasts, to budding wine entrepreneurs.
Their success and longevity in the field of personal winemaking stems
from a unique service that they offer. Where most custom crush facilities
require large minimums, often between 5-10 tons of fruit, Judds Hill
specializes in small-lots, as little as a half-ton. These small one barrel
minimums set them apart from the others and have created a home for
those vintners with smaller production needs.
Dubbed The Pioneer in Personal Winemaking, Judds Hill founder,
Art Finkelstein, began his journey into small-lot winemaking when a
neighbor asked him to make a barrel of single-vineyard wine from his
grapes, in order to showcase his fruit. Over the years, word of this service
spread to other grape growers in Napa and beyond and business grew.
Twenty five years later Judds Hill MicroCrush is the popular choice not
only for grape growers, but backyard vineyard owners and enthusiasts
who are looking to share their wine with family and friends. It has also
become a great way for businesses to market their company in a unique
way and a place for entrepreneurs to create their own small wine brands.
At Judds Hill you do not need to be a winemaker, because they do it
all for you. They offer all-inclusive, expert winemaking services from the
time you bring in your fruit until the time its bottled. If you dont have
your own fruit, its not a problem. With over 30 years in the wine
industry, Judds Hill has been able to establish long-term relationships
with growers around the Napa Valley (and beyond) and is able to source

www.WineCountryThisWeek.com

WiNe CouNtrY tHis WeeK | WiNe CouNtrY NeWs

from a variety of premium vineyards. If you are interested in getting


something into bottle sooner, they offer a selection of premium
wines from their cellar that can be custom blended to perfection.
Choose your level of involvement. Work closely with the
MicroCrush team every step of
the way, making decisions on
everything from barrel choices
to packaging. Meet one-on-one
with their award winning
winemaker to sample your wine
and make stylistic decisions as
your wine develops, then revisit
your wine prior to bottling to
craft the perfect blend for your
palate. If your schedule or
distance doesnt allow you to
participate, let Judds Hill
MicroCrush take the wheel.
With their proven expertise and
stability you can rest assured
that your wine is in good
hands.
MicroCrush vintners also
enjoy the same benefits as Judds
Hill Wine Club members!
These include discounts on
Judds Hill wine and local
lodging, as well as invitations to
all of the Wine Club and
MicroCrush events. You also get
special pricing on Bottle
Blending Day Camps, which are
mini versions of MicroCrush.
This is a great way to have your
friends and family experience
what you are doing, but on a
smaller scale.

Dont miss Rosenblum Cellars Tasting Lounge, located in


the heart of downtown Healdsburg, an urban-chic resting
place, and the perfect spot for tasting wines.
With open views of Healdsburgs quaint streets, the tasting

spacious rooms, the Club & Locals lounge, an educational
wine and food pairing room, as well as a comfortable
outdoor patio with fountains for sipping wine in the sun.
The Club & Locals Lounge welcomes you with plush
couches, tables and chairs for a more relaxed tasting

inviting club members and locals to sit back and watch a
good game or show.
The tasting room is surrounded by good smells, The
Wurst, a local eatery, known for their tasty home-made
sausages and onion rings, a partner in Rosenblums food and
wine pairing program. The lounge offers two different
pairings, a savory pairing from The Wurst, three wines with
three sausages for $20 per person, and a sweet pairing from
Sift Cupcakes, pairing three wines with three desserts for $20
per person. For both pairings, it is $35 per person.
Rosenblum Cellars makes great Zins, but also offers a
small production of varietal wines to suit everybodys tastes,
such as Syrah, Petite Sirah, Chardonnay, Grenache, Viognier,
Pinot Grigio, Bubbly Muscato and more. At Rosenblum
Cellars, you can taste the different regions. They pride
themselves on cultivating excellent grower relations over the
past 35 years, partnering with more than 50 grape growers in
premium wine growing regions around California.
As for which wines to sample, try the 2010 Rockpile Road
Zinfandel for $45, known for its rich aromas of blackberry,
bramble, rose petal and peppery spice. For white wine
lovers, taste the 2012 Great American Wine Company
Chardonnay for $18. This vintage is 100% Chardonnay, the
aromas are bold with clean, bright citrus and soft vanilla oak
layered over gentle stone fruits.
Rosenblum Cellars is available for private parties.
Interested individuals may rent any of the separate tasting
areas or the whole facility.
This urban dwelling is fun, elegant, relaxed and friendly.
The wines are to die for! If you plan on visiting Healdsburg,

Pinot Noir inspires unbelievable loyalty. Its a clich in todays wine world
for a reason: the most passionate producers are totally gaga over producing
the best Pinot Noir they can, and Diane and Ken Wilson, the founders of
Matrix Winery, and several other wineries under the umbrella Wilson Family
Wine Estates, are absolutely dedicated to producing vineyard-driven wines.
It is this commitment to the stewardship and sustainable farming of the
Russian River and Dry Creek Valleys which drives everything Matrix Winery
produces.
Honored as Woman Winemaker of the Year in 2008, and winning
multiple back-to-back Sonoma County Harvest Fair and San Francisco
Chronicle Sweepstakes, Diane Wilson is a guiding light for the Sonoma
County wine industry. These highly-regarded awards, coupled with dozens
of 90+ scores and over 100 Gold Medals, demonstrate Dianes strong track
record as an outstanding winemaker. She says, My goal is to maximize the
fruit flavor of the grape, making sure each wine has a front, a middle and a
back, so it produces a full, rich mouth feel. It is all about balance.
The best place to sample that balance is at the Matrix Tasting Room in
Healdsburg; the Sip Sip Lounge is open daily from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., offering
panoramic views of the Russian River Valley through expansive windows to
accompany the critically acclaimed wines: multiple bottlings of Chardonnay,
Petite Sirah, Pinot Noir, Primitivo, Ros, Sauvignon Blanc and Zinfandel, as
well as several vintner blends. Its cozy atmosphere and friendly tasting staff
create a unique and personal wine experience not found in the larger spots,
and enjoying wines while gazing at the undulating vineyards is quite
memorable.
Additionally, for those wanting something truly distinct, the full range of
the Wilson Family Wines Estates come into play in the VIP Tour Package,
where you decide which four of the eight properties you wish to visit. This
VIP tour includes a wine educator, who will guide you through the four-hour
tour in a luxury limousine. Plus, at the winery of your choice, youll enjoy a
picnic that includes two bottles of wine for the group and a delicious box
lunch from the famed Costeaux French Bakery. See their website for all the
details: matrixwinery.com.
The winery also has several events coming up later this year youll not want
to miss. September 6th brings the annual Pups & Pinot New Release Party
where participants can be the first to try eight (thats not a typo!) new Pinot
Noir releases and well-behaved dogs on a leash are welcomed. RSVP by
August 31st to andreanna@matrixwinery.com to guarantee a spot. Equally,
October 18th provides the opportunity to attend the annual Winemaker
Vineyard Picnic, a day of sun, gourmet food, and delicious Pinot Noir. Be a
part of this exciting annual event and celebrate the fall Matrix style in the
vineyard with the winemaking team. Reserve your spot at this annual event by
emailing andreanna@matrixwinery.com.
One can easily point to the huge numbers of high scores and gold medals
Matrix has received, but that tells you nothing about the experience of being
at the winery itself. There, the emphasis is on the appreciation of the wines
and the vineyards which create them. Do yourself a favor and stop in when
you next get a chance: youll be glad you did theyre Tasting Room of the
Week for a reason! Enjoy.

Vine Cliff Cellars Opens a New Tasting Room


New releases to Celebrate opening
of vine Cliff Cellars in st. Helena
Vine Cliff Winery recently opened its
new tasting room in St. Helena. Vine Cliff
Cellars opens daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
This new addition to Vine Cliff is located
just south of Dean & De Luca at the corner
of St. Helena Highway and Inglewood
Avenue. The winery also celebrated the
opening with the release of its 2009 Private
Stock Cabernet Sauvignon and its 2012
Proprietress Reserve Chardonnay.
The Sweeney Family, owners of Vine
Cliff, commissioned noted Napa Valley
architect Howard J. Backen whose firm has
been involved in the design of a number of
wineries including Harlan Estate and The
Napa Valley Reserve, to design the new
tasting room in 2012. The design has
incorporated classic touches to a green
building. Working with Nell Sweeney,
Proprietress and Rob Sweeney, General
Manager, Backen designed the 4,000square-foot building with specifications
that met the Sweeney Familys dedication to
energy conservation and green practices.
The Sweeneys also requested the
incorporation of features inspired by their
travels to European wine regions. The
architecture was inspired from trips that we
took to the great estates in Burgundy and
Bordeaux. There was one particular
building in Burgundy that we loved. Classic

old world plaster, inside and out. We


wanted a very traditional winery feel. We
have 17 inch thick walls that are
emphasized in the architecture but also
provide superior insulation, explained Nell
Sweeney. Concrete stone plaster and wood
are the materials throughout, with concrete
counters and a fireplace by Concrete
Works.
The conservation elements of the
building include the solar 4energy system
that provides 60 percent of the estimated
electricity. In the short time that the room
has been open, the savings from the system
with Enphase Energy has shown a small
contribution to offsetting the carbon
footprint, which is part of our Vine Cliff
mission, Rob Sweeney emphasized.
The landscaping surrounding the
building and in the inner courtyard, was
designed to be drought resistant by
landscape architect Steve Arms and was

www.WineCountryThisWeek.com

installed by Rodney Rose.


The seating areas, with comfortable
lounge chairs and sofas in beige tones, are
designed for intimate conversation. There
are two smaller rooms to support the main
room for more formal tastings; these are
equipped for AV presentations as well.
The outdoor area with a separate
entryway from the street, runs along one
side of the building, creating a clever use of
a combination of indoor/outdoor space as
needed. A food preparation kitchen permits
Vine Cliff staff to prepare artisanal cheese
and charcuterie plates to go with the wine
selections, and to provide for larger catering
requirements.
The tasting room is located at 699 St.
Helena Highway in St. Helena, CA 94574.
The winery is at 7400 Silverado Trail, Napa,
CA 94558. Call (707) 944-1364 or email
info@vinecliff.com for more information or
to make a reservation.

Bordeaux varietals. As a specialist in Cabernet Sauvignon, each
vintage the winemaking staff crafts 15 distinct Cabernet blends

SUMMERS
WINERY

Bennett Lane Winery in Calistoga was started by Randy and Lisa


Lynch and, while it is surrounded by vineyards in Northern
California, it has its roots in Europe, where they first discovered their
love of fine wine and the relationship between wine and food.
When they decided to pursue their passion for wine, they found
land where the topography, geography, soil and climate form a unique
spot to grow grapes. Vines, particularly Cabernet, thrive here.
Today, this small winery has its label on almost three dozen wines
scoring 90+ in just seven vintages. For a winery this size that is
amazing. Maximus Red Feasting Wine best shows the results of their
constant effort to create great wine. Crafted in limited amounts from
3718 ST HELENA
HWY NO,and
CALISTOGA
Cabernet Sauvignon,
Merlot
Syrah, it was an immediate hit.
707-942-8619
WWW.MADRIGALFAMILYWINERY.COM
In addition
to red Maximus, they also produce a Maximus White
Feasting Wine, Reserve Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and a
dessert wine.
The winery also has a hot air balloon to take guests aloft for a
spectacular view of wine country. All part of the special Bennett Lane
experience.

rodney strong vineyards Concert schedule


sunday, July 13 Chris isaak
In the course of Chris Isaaks 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 hes 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 careerchanging break when his third album, Heart Shaped World became a hit when director David Lynch used
Isaaks song Wicked Game in the film Wild at Heart. Herb Ritts video for the song helped make Isaak a
star and sex symbol.
Doors: 4 p.m./Show: 5 p.m. | Tickets: VIP $115 / GA $75

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 albumDaybreak, 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 Ive 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 wasnt 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 bands 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, Youre Still A Young
Man, and more. Rising from the streets of Oakland, Towers 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.

DeLoach Vineyards Celebrates Winery Renaissance


Winery undergoes Franco-American renovation
DeLoach Vineyards celebrated the
renaissance of its recently renovated Russian
River Valley estate and announced the launch
of a selection of newly created educational
experiences aimed at transforming the
winery into the premier destination of
exploration and discovery in Sonoma
County. The recent renovation and addition
of experiences were inspired by the
entrepreneurial pioneering spirit of the
DeLoach family, Huguenots who emigrated
from the Loire Valley of France to California
in the 17th century and the Fleur de Lys, the
longtime symbol of DeLoach Vineyards.
The Fleur de Lys has traditionally been
used to represent French royalty, JeanCharles Boisset, Proprietor, explained. It is
said to signify perfection, light and life. Due
to its three petals, the Roman Catholic
Church ascribed this flower of the lily as
the special emblem of the Virgin Mary, which
has also been used to represent the Holy
Trinity.
Jean-Charles continued, DeLoach is

grateful to inherit this incredible and


powerful symbol, which for us represents
our holy trinity: Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and
Zinfandel and sustainable, organic and
Biodynamic farming.
The new and latest offerings at DeLoach
Vineyards now include:
Theater of Nature A self-guided tour
through the vineyards and garden that
illustrates and illuminates DeLoachs
organic and Biodynamic farming
philosophy.
Les Libertines Cellar Taste limited
production wines from the esteemed Estate
vineyard surrounded by the style, fashion
and excess of the 17th century French
royal court.
Barrel Tasting in the Royal Barrel Cellar
Enjoy wines thieved directly from the
barrel in the new Royal Barrel Cellar.
Explore selections from various vineyards,
including the DeLoach Estate and make a
side-by-side comparison with their finished
counterparts from earlier vintages.
M.F.S. Blending Experience Inspired by
the DeLoach Vineyards O.F.S. (Our Finest
Selection) collection of wines, the M.F.S.
Blending experience offers guests the
opportunity to blend their own M.F.S (My
Finest Selection), Russian River Valley
Pinot Noir, complete with personal,
custom wine label.
Vineyard Designate Tasting in the
Appellation Room Discover the nuances
of DeLoachs diverse terroir with a flight of
Vineyard Designate wines beneath a
towering three-dimensional map of
Sonoma County and surrounded by the
profiles of vineyard partners
The Magic of Wine and Mustard In
partnership with Fallot Mustard (Burgundy,
France), learn about the wonderful world
of wine and mustard as you stroll through
the vineyard and garden, then make your
own mustard from Dijon mustard seed.
The tour ends with delicious mustard-

www.WineCountryThisWeek.com

inspired food and a flight of DeLoach wine.


Taste of Terroir Discover the
Burgundian origins of Pinot Noir and
Chardonnay in this exclusive, guided
tasting that features wines from the Boisset
Collection of wineries in France served
alongside a selection of Pinot Noir and
Chardonnay from Californias nuanced
terroir.
JCB Winery The JCB Winery unites the
worlds of wine & fashion in a luxurious
tasting experience that illuminates then
transcends terroir, reaching beyond the
traditional confines of wine to embody
both style and sophistication.
Guests can also enjoy the Estate Garden
& Grove, where they can purchase any of
their favorite DeLoach wines and enjoy them
with a custom picnic basket prepared by the
winery.
The diversity of experiences at DeLoach
Vineyards offers guests a wide array of
opportunities to delve deeper into the Boisset
world of wine. Most experiences are by
appointment only and can be reserved online

Greeting you at the doorway to Sonoma wine country sits one of its jewels,
Gloria Ferrer Caves and Vineyards, the first sparkling wine house built in
Carneros. Sparkling wine is the perfect choice for celebrating special occasions,
but because its so food friendly, its ideal for everyday enjoyment and a visit here is
the best way to start your day!
Gloria Ferrer Caves and Vineyards takes great pride in partnering with
organizations and programs with goals that align with their core values and
interests. They support non-profit organizations in Sonoma County and throughout
the San Francisco Bay Area that strengthen the community. For over a decade,
Gloria Ferrer has partnered with Sonoma Valleys WillMar Family Grief and Healing
Center to raise funds for bereaved children while promoting sustainable agriculture.
All of the proceeds of the two vintages of limited-production Pinot Noir will be
donated to the Center. Only 100 cases of each of the 2011 and 2012 vintages were
bottled. This exclusive, handcrafted Pinot Noir yields from carefully tended estate
Carneros Vineyards. Original art graces the bottles with labels designed by young
talented WillMar artists. These images are also available in poster size sold in the
tasting room.
In addition to these exclusive wines and specialty artwork, the Gloria Ferrer
vineyard crew make blue bird boxes as used in the vineyards and donate them to
WillMar for the children to paint. Once painted, they are returned to Gloria Ferrer
and made available for purchase in the tasting room with 100% of the proceeds
going back to the WillMar Center.
Honoring their commitment to education, Gloria Ferrer is also a generous

Catalan and Tuscan olives to SVEF.

delicious seasonal bites while learning the basics of wine and food
pairings. Afterward, stroll out onto the terrace and enjoy a wine flight
along with their house-made specially seasoned almonds. Their
outdoor terrace is breathtaking while the tasting room is bright and
every table enjoys views of their lush estate vineyards and olive trees.
They also stock savory Spanish meats and cheeses that pair perfectly
with a glass of bubbly for you to enjoy during your seated wine
tasting. Savor the newest vintage of their estate grown, extra virgin
olive oil produced from Catalan and Tuscan olives. Hand harvested
from 475 trees, cold pressed then blended to create a smooth, fruity
blend with intense flavor. Look for this to brighten all your summer

Heroes of Woodstock to Celebrate their 45th Anniversary


August 16th at Hobergs Resort and Spa in Lake County
Forty-five years ago on Max Yasgurs hillside field
in Bethel, New York, a generation found its dream a
vision of peace, music and joy that has resonated
through the years. The dream endures, and it is
called Woodstock.
This August the official Heroes of Woodstock a
fair sampling of the iconic musicians from the
original event, featuring Jefferson Starship, Canned
Heat, Big Brother and the Holding Company,
Country Joe McDonald, Tom Constanten (Grateful
Dead) and the Imperial Messenger Service (David
Freiberg of Quicksilver) will celebrate the
anniversary on Saturday, August 16, at Hobergs Resort and Spa, a
mountain top resort on Cobb Mountain, Lake County. The show
will rock you out of your shoes in one of the oldest, most
charming, and most environmentally green resorts in California.
The Jefferson Starship is the long-time evolution of the original
Jefferson Airplane founded by Paul Kantner in 1965. The most
successful by far of the bands that emerged from San Francisco at
that time, the Airplane gave the world classic albums like
Surrealistic Pillow and songs like White Rabbit and Somebody
to Love. Kantner and the Airplane were inducted into the Rock
and Roll Hall of Fame in 1996.
In addition to Paul Kantner, the Jefferson Starship will present
co-founder David Freiberg, who also helped create Quicksilver
Messenger Service, was a member of the Airplane, and as a
member of the Jefferson Starship went on to write one of its alltime biggest hits, Jane. Ace drummer Donny Baldwin boasts a
career that goes back to the mid-70s Elvin Bishop Band (he was
part of the #1 hit single Fooled Around and Fell In Love). Later
he was part of the Jefferson Starship and then the Jerry Garcia
Band, and he has toured and recorded with just about everybody,
including Gregg Allman, Heart and Van Morrison. Chris Smith
holds down both the keyboard and (synth) bass slots la Ray
Manzarek, and worked with the Supremes. Cathy Richardson,
who sings the vocals once made legendary by Grace Slick, was
nominated for a Grammy for her own release, The Road to Bliss,
and earned considerable acclaim for her portrayal of Janis Joplin
in the original cast of the hit show Love, Janis. Jude Gold is the
brilliant lead guitarist who stepped in to substitute for the thenailing (and now much better, thank you) Slick Aguilar.
Canned Heat, whose Going Up the Country became the
unofficial theme song for the original Woodstock Festival, is a
band whose mojo has survived the tragic loss of many of its

original members. Co-founders Larry The Mole


Taylor, a veteran of work with Jerry Lee Lewis and
The Monkees, and drummer Adolfo Fito de la Parra
soldier on, joined by an outstanding group of
musicians including New Orleans legend Dale
Spalding on harmonica, guitar and lead vocals, and
John J.P. Paulus, who has stepped in for regular
guitarist Harvey The Snake Mandel, currently on
injured reserve. The spirit that has allowed the band
to play everywhere from the Fillmore to Madison
Square Garden will never die.
Big Brother and the Holding Company came to
fame as the house band of the Avalon Ballroom led by the
scintillating guitar work of James Gurley. A woman vocalist by
the name of Janis Joplin passed through the band, but theyve
made a long career from their own talents, and are justly regarded
as among the strongest and most enduring bands around. All
three surviving founders will be at Hobergs Resort and Spa,
including Peter Albin (bass, vocals), Sam Andrew (guitar, vocals)
and Dave Getz (drums).
The Imperial Messenger Service celebrates the musical canon of
the legendary Quicksilver Messenger Service. Though history will
remember their hit, Fresh Air, those who know will tell you
about epic psychedelic performances by one of the San Francisco
scenes finest bands. Featuring David Freiberg (guitar, vocals) and
vocalist Linda Imperial, it shares many members with the
Jefferson Starship, which will make for interesting interplay
among the musicians and the music being played!
Hosting and performing will be Woodstock Hero Country Joe
McDonald. In recent years, he has made a particular study of folk
icon Woody Guthrie, and the effect is haunting even as he delivers
the songs with a seemingly casual grace.
Tom Constanten was the keyboard genius behind the Grateful
Deads most experimental and adventurous era, contributing
jewels like the harpsichord in Mountains of the Moon and the
classic keyboard part of St. Stephen. In recent years he has
played solo as well as in the company of Dead sound wizard Bob
Bralove in a group they call Dose Hermanos.
Hobergs Resort and Spa is about 100 miles north of San
Francisco, 100 miles Northwest of Sacramento, and 20 miles
north of Calistoga at State Highway 175 and Entrance Road,
Cobb, CA, in the mountain wine country of Lake County. For
further information, go to www.hobergsresort.com or Cobb
Mountain Concert Series hotline, 1-866-622-7709.

BY ALexANdrA CHArsLeY

WCtW: Whats 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 Lombardis 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 Tonys 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: Wheres 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: Whats 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: Whats an interesting fact that most people dont 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

tank staves. I like working with my hands and seeing my project come to life. It is also one of
Phone:(707)

the reasons I love to make wine. Seeing the process from start to finish fascinates me.

Rocco Ceselin

ABout: Justin Seidenfelds 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 winerys 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: Whats your favorite local restaurant and what do you like to order?
rM: Its 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 shes the one drinking the coffee. Probably the Flying Goat,
Parish Caf or Chloes French Caf.
WCtW: If you are meeting a friend for cocktails, where do you go?
rM: Healdsburg has some nice bars with great cocktails Willis Wine Bar, Mateos Cucina
Latina for margaritas or SpoonBar.
WCtW: What do you do for fun?
rM: Boating on the lake, fishing, hiking and mushroom hunting.
WCtW: Wheres 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 ros.
WCtW: Whats an interesting fact that most people dont know about you?
rM: I taught math for 26 years.
ABout: Rick Moshins 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.
