INTELLIGENCE FOR THE WINE CONSUMER
BY LEN NAPOLITANO

What’s better – cork or screw cap?
Natural cork, the bottle closure used since commercial production
of precision glass bottles, has established itself as an unofficial
industry standard. An alternative to the cork closure has long been
the aluminum screw cap or twist cap. It was the closure on
inexpensive, low-quality wine since the sixties, resulting in a
damaging association for decades. But not anymore. Since around
2000, increasingly more winemakers choose screw cap closures over
natural cork for one or more of the following reasons: reduced costs;
retained fruit freshness; more consistent aging; and reduced chance
that bacteria, known as TCA, will impart a damp, musty smell to the
wine, destroying its fruit aroma.
Another benefit of screw caps is that they allow bottles to be stored
upright instead of lying on their sides. The absence of a cork closure
eliminates the need to keep wine in contact with the cork, which
expands to create a virtual airtight seal within the bottle.
Of all the reasons above, the problem with TCA has been the
driving force behind the growing popularity and acceptance of twist
caps. It is generally estimated that somewhere between 1% to 15% of
all wine is tainted by natural corks containing TCA, though
winemakers, cork manufacturers and wine critics have debated this
number for years. In January 2013, Wine Spectator magazine’s James
Laube reported “3.7 percent of the 3,269 cork-sealed wines from
California tasted in the Wine Spectator office in 2012 were thought to
be tainted by a bad cork.” If you estimate that wine aficionados at the
magazine are about twice as sensitive to TCA-tainted wine than
average wine consumers, it would translate to fewer than 2%

detectable by the average wine consumer. This figure is closer to
where the Cork Forest Conservation Alliance claims TCA
contamination to be: they say current testing indicates only “1% of
wine is tainted by cork-TCA.” Regardless of the true number, what’s
important is that contamination from cork is on the decline.
The smell from TCA can be too subtle for the average palate to
notice, so certainly consumers have been drinking cork-tainted wines
for years without knowing it. Winemakers, however, are highly
sensitive to cork-taint smell and work hard to keep their products free
from off-odors. That’s why those winemakers who choose natural cork
closures demand rigid quality control from cork suppliers. Together,
they are succeeding at reducing the incidence of corked wine.
Ironically, there are issues with twist caps, as well. Because of their
air-tight design, caps have on occasion been blamed for aging wines
too slowly, or for a buildup of sulfides inside a bottle, which adds a
subtle smell of rotten egg. Cap manufacturers responded with new
technology that permits a controlled amount of oxygen into the
bottle, matched to the wine style and how soon the wine will be
consumed after bottling (which is difficult to know). Bottom line:
there is no perfect closure.
With tens of thousands of wines entering the market every year,
there is ample room for closing wines with all available options: twist
caps, synthetic corks, aggregate corks (crushed natural cork pressed
into a cork shape) and conventional natural corks. It has become
common for twist caps to close white wines more often than reds,
since they are more likely to be opened and consumed sooner. Red
wines are more age-worthy and corks are proven to enhance wineaging by allowing microscopic amounts of oxygen into the wine.
The advantages and
disadvantages of various bottle
closures will play out over the
coming decades. Each type will
find its niche. Probably alternative
closures will close the more
affordable wines and corks the

BY JOSH STEIN

Is a Barrel by Another Name as Oaky?
Were Master Shakespeare to have included a winemaker in one
of his plays, the famous phrase might have become “To oak or not
to oak? That is the question,” and that would have been a spot on
assessment, for few things bring on more questions, anxieties and
myths than the discussion of oak usage and winemaking. Were
they able to offer comment themselves, I imagine a towering oak
offering something along the lines of “Chill out and just enjoy”
because, as with many other aspects of winegrowing, the
discussions tend to complicate and obscure the reality from the
winemaker’s perspective.
For whites, the decisions come down to the degree, if any, of oak
influence. Many white varieties do not benefit from oak exposure,
and even “neutral” barrels (barrels used long enough that oak
tannin is no longer perceptible in wines stored therein) can cause a
stylistic miscue since barrels play host to Oenococcus oeni, the
bacteria responsible for malic-to-lactic acid conversion. Unless
extraordinary and expensive precautions are taken, most
winemakers would combine separate lots of filtered oaked and

unoaked whites to arrive at a blend with the desired level of oak
influence rather than hoping to arrive at an ideal middle through
chance in the barrel.
Red wines, though, present a bit of a different set of options.
Oak is useful throughout the production process, so some folks will
be using toasted or untoasted oak shavings at the crusher in cooler
harvests to alleviate any underripe “green” aromatics or flavor
compounds from methoxypyrazines, which contribute cigar or
tobacco at low levels and green pepper or grassy, herb-y notes at
higher levels. Winemakers can ferment in barrels either by
removing the heads and punching down into upright barrels or
through reassembling the barrels and using a rotation system to
keep the cap wet by spinning. They can use larger puncheons to
give more subtle, “rounder” notes to the wine without giving as
“oaky” a presence – liquid volume to surface area matters a lot; the
larger the vessel, the less the influence, everything else being equal.
Post-pressing, most reds are aged either in barrel or in tanks with
some kind of oak adjunct inserted; as with barrel options so go the
adjuncts: winemakers have choices that range from oak source
(American, French, Hungarian, blends and beyond), to toast level,
to toasted or untoasted heads in barrels, and a slew of options for
creating oak effects sans barrels including “beans,” cubes, spirals,
blocks, sticks-in-chains to fit into barrel bungholes, and staves of
various shapes and sizes for tank inserts. Think back to your first
visit to a big toystore as a kid; now picture an adult kid and you
know how winemakers feel about their oak options. It’s great to
have choices, but there are lots of options, and one is not
necessarily “better” than another.
At the end of the day, oak is like every other part of the
winemaking process: a series of decisions through which the final
wine is realized, and the key thing winemakers must come to terms
with in order to do their best work is that making a particular
decision, or refusing to make it, will have an impact on that final
bottling either way. Winemakers grow and “cook” with grapes, and
once the process starts, the vessel in which the fermentation takes
place absolutely has an impact – but you must start with the best
ingredients possible. Just like cooking. Enjoy!

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

PRAGER WINERY & PORT WORKS
Get a Taste of Their Exceptional Spirits
BY MONICA L. DASHWOOD

PRAGER WINERY
AND PORT WORKS
1281 Lewelling Lane, St. Helena, CA 94574
1-800-969-PORT | www.pragerport.com

22

Prager Winery & Port Works is no ordinary winery. Hidden in the Napa Valley’s St. Helena,
Prager Winery carries a down-to earth, and welcoming vibe drawing port and wine lovers from
all over the world since 1979.
When you come to the winery, you feel like you’re the only one that matters. You are
personally greeted by one of the Prager brothers, Pete, Jeff, John or Richard (in-law), having all
the time in the world to talk to you. “We just don’t want to miss anybody coming in,” Jeff Prager,
General Manager says. “We’re interested in the people. Everybody talks to each other.”
At Prager Winery, simple traditions are honored which means friendly service, top quality
port and wine products, and good times. The winery is a family-run affair with three generations
of Pragers involved in the crafting of premium ports and wines. The tasting room is intimate,
cool and inviting. Classic rock plays in the background. Fresh flowers and wine barrels behind
the tasting bar greet guests where they can choose from a variety of their delicious offerings.
When you walk in, you’ll wonder about the one dollar bills plastered all over the wood paneled
walls. Just ask the Pragers, it makes for good conversation as you sip their finest port, red and
white wines.
Prager Winery and Port Works produces 3600 cases, making small productions of the good
stuff – what they call the perfect prescription for port lovers. Their most popular is their Noble
Companion, a 10-Year-Old Tawny Port. You’ll never taste anything so delicious. The Noble
Companion is produced from Cabernet Sauvignon from their 2003 vintage. Aged over a decade
in sixty gallon barrels, this Tawny has developed a brilliant amber color along with aromas of
vanilla and caramel. The flavors of dried orange rind and caramel come through on the palate,
with a creamy vanilla finish.
Their 2009 Aria White Port is another production worth singing its praises. It’s a favorite
seller that they’re almost out of it, but as Jeff Prager says, “Go ahead and drink it, we’ll make
more.” Don’t worry, if you can’t come in time to try the 2009, the 2010 is on its way. This Aria
was aged for over three years in sixty gallon oak barrels, where it developed a nutty aroma

WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK | WINERY FEATURE

Introducing...

More than 2100 California
accompanied with vanilla. The
extended aging is responsible for this
semi-sweet port’s creamy texture,
accenting the vanilla and citrus flavors.
Again, the Aria White port is simply
divine!
Prager Winery and Port Works also
offers a number of varietals on their
tasting menu, such as the 2009 Petite
Sirah Table Wine, the newly released
2013 Sweet Claire Late Harvest
Riesling, and 2013 Dry Riesling. There
is a $20 per person tasting fee, which
includes a complimentary souvenir
with logo tasting glass.
In addition to their libations, a must
try is Imogene Prager’s sweet and savory
walnuts. According to Jeff, his mother
makes these savory walnuts three times
a week. “She’s a real dynamo,” Jeff says,
chuckling. “You have to try them with
the port wines.” To cleanse the palates,
delectable chocolate truffles are also
available for tasting.
For those of you who want bottles of
Prager port delivered to your home
throughout the year, join their port
club. For more information, email
portclub@pragerport.com.
There are tons of reasons to talk up
Prager Winery and Port Works. Come
and see for yourself why this winery is
exceptional – real to the core,

Photographs by Legendary Graham Nash at
Mumm Napa’s Fine Art Photography Gallery
‘my Life through my Lens’ exhibit runs through January 31, 2015
More than 50 photographs by legendary singer-songwriter
Graham Nash will be on display in a new exhibition at the Fine Art
Photography Gallery at Mumm Napa in Rutherford. Titled My Life
Through My Lens, Photographs by Graham Nash, the exhibit runs
now through January 31 at the winery’s Fine Art Photography
Gallery.
In addition to his prodigious talent for music, Graham Nash is
also an internationally renowned photographer, collector and digital
imaging pioneer. My Life through My Lens was curated specifically
for the Fine Art Photography Gallery at Mumm Napa by Theron
Kabrich of the San Francisco Art Exchange (SFAE). This collection
of over 50 images beautifully illustrates that Nash’s celebrated talent
as a compelling storyteller seamlessly carries over into his
photography. With autobiographical intimacy, and as only Graham
Nash could have photographed them, the exhibition includes
artfully crafted pictures of friends such as David Crosby, Jerry
Garcia, and Johnny Cash who have been part of his long and
influential career.
Inspired by his father, Nash began taking pictures at the age of
11. Prompted by his friend Joni Mitchell, with whom he once lived
and who was the inspiration for his song Our House, Nash began to
exhibit his photographs in 1990. Since then his work has appeared
in solo and group exhibitions in museums and galleries around the
world, including at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, The
Eastman House, and the Butler Museum of American Art. His
company Nash Editions’ original IRIS 3047 digital printer and one
of its first published works – Nash’s 1969 portrait of David Crosby –
is now housed in the National Museum of American History at the
Smithsonian Institution in recognition of his revolutionary
accomplishments in the fine arts and digital printing world.
Visitor center and gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.
Additionally, the winery and gallery’s Summer Hours are Friday
through Sunday from 10 a.m to 6 p.m. through October. There is

no charge to view My Life Through My Lens. Mumm Napa is
located at 8445 Silverado Trail, Rutherford, CA 94573. All
photography in the exhibit is represented by SFAE.
Mumm Napa is one of California’s top sparkling wine producers
and one of the most popular destinations for wine country visitors.
For more than 20 years, Mumm Napa sparkling wines have set the
standard for California méthode traditionnelle sparkling wine,
emphasizing the exceptional qualities of Napa Valley fruit along
with the unique casual elegance of the Napa Valley lifestyle. The
winery and visitor center are located in Rutherford along the
Silverado Trail in the Napa Valley and are open daily for tours,
tastings and private events.

Michelin Star Chef To Board V. Sattui Customer Appreciation Cruise
Discover foods from the Ancient Empires paired with Napa Valley Wines
One of Italy’s beloved Michelin Star Chefs will board the
upcoming V. Sattui President’s Cruise, offering hands-on cooking
classes for guests on the customer appreciation adventure. Stefano
Masanti, Executive Chef and owner of Il Cantinone restaurant in
Madesimo, Italy, will join Tom Davies, President and Co-owner of V.
Sattui Winery, and winemaker Brooks Painter on V. Sattui’s President’s
Cruise. The customer appreciation cruise is scheduled for June 1
through June 16, 2015, aboard Oceania Cruises’ newest ship, the
Riviera. The cruise departs from Rome and visits the Ancient
Empires, including stops in Italy, Greece, Israel, and Egypt.
Stateroom prices start at $6,874 per person, which includes
roundtrip airfare to Europe. For more information or to reserve call
1-800-367-5348, or email info@foodandwinetrails.com.
“This is a great chance to visit the Ancient Empires that are a big
part of the Italian culture and our way of cooking,” said Masanti. “For
us working with V. Sattui is always a pleasure and a great experience.
It’s like cooking for your best friends and family.”
Il Cantinone is located high above Lake Como in the Italian Alps.
Chef Masanti is an advocate of the Slow Food philosophy of cooking,
and he uses local, seasonal and organic ingredients whenever possible.
For this journey, Masanti will help cooking class participants discover
new foods and flavors from the ports of call on the cruise. He will take
class participants to a local farmer’s market, and the group will choose
their ingredients. They’ll return to the Bon Appetit Culinary Center on
the Riviera, a kitchen classroom with 24 stations. Masanti will put his
students to work to help create a menu inspired by the ingredients in
a hands-on cooking class. Class participants will enjoy their finished
dishes paired with V. Sattui wines.
“We are elated that Chef Masanti is boarding this cruise,” said Tom
Davies, President of V. Sattui Winery. “Stefano has become a good
friend of our winery and our customers. He understands our Italian
heritage, our love of good food and wine, and how to make a
gathering of friends and family memorable. This is going to be a
culinary adventure of a lifetime.”

Davies met Masanti six years ago at Il Cantinone while vacationing
in Madesimo. The relationship has grown and, in 2009, 2010 and
2014, Masanti traveled to the Napa Valley to present a cooking
demonstration and prepare a six-course dinner for V. Sattui’s annual
Harvest Ball.
V. Sattui Winery is a family-owned property located in the heart of
Napa Valley, that was founded in 1885 and makes more than 60
different wines with dozens of 90+ point rated wines among its
current vintages. It is a stunning, must-see Napa Valley destination
for picnics, weddings and events, offering an impressively robust
Cheese Shop with more than 200 selections. Executive Chef Gerardo
Sainato and his staff create mouthwatering salads, sandwiches,
paninis and entrees in the Deli. V. Sattui also makes house-cured
meats from its own Salumeria, and gelato and sorbetto from its own
Gelateria. The sprawling estate includes two-dozen picnic tables
nestled beneath ancient Valley Oak trees and tri-level terraces that
overlook beautifully manicured gardens and vineyards.
V. Sattui Director of Winemaking, Brooks Painter, was recognized
as “Winemaker of the Year” at the San Francisco International Wine
Competition in June of 2013, and in 2014 V. Sattui was named
“Winery of the Year” for the third year in a row at the Winemaker’s
Challenge. This marked the tenth time in the last decade that the
Winery has been given that honor at a major national competition.
In addition, V. Sattui garnered “Best Winery in the Bay Area” for the
third year in a row in the San Francisco Bay Guardian 2014 “Reader’s
Poll.”
V. Sattui wines are sustainably farmed (some from its own organic
vineyard) and are sold exclusively from the winery, direct to
consumer. V. Sattui Winery is located on a 38-acre vineyard in the
center of the Napa Valley, along Highway 29 (at White Lane) in
St. Helena. The winery welcomes visitors daily for wine tastings
between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. daily (9 a.m. to 5 p.m. during the winter
months), as well as barbecue on weekends in the warmer months of
the year. Information for V. Sattui Winery is available on the website

Louis M. Martini is an iconic winery crafting world-class
Cabernet Sauvignon since the 1930’s. Located in St. Helena
in the heart of the Napa Valley, Louis M. Martini is the
premier location for tasting exceptional Cabernet
Sauvignon vintages, especially their Lot No. 1 releases.
Michael Martini, third-generation vintner, continues the
winemaking traditions of his pioneering father Louis M.
Martini who played an integral role in establishing Napa
Valley as one of the world’s top winegrowing regions.
Michael, with his vast knowledge and vintner experience,
honors his father’s legacy by crafting the finest award
winning red wines in the country, such as the Lot 1 wines.
The concept of lot wines dates back to 1968, when
Louis P. Martini first produced his luxury Cabernet
Sauvignon wines from selected barrels named by lot
numbers. To this day, Michael selects the best grapes from
Napa Valley’s rich mountaintop and benchland vineyards
for his Lot 1 Cabernet Sauvignon, including Pritchard Hill
in St. Helena, Spring Mountain, Stag’s Leap, Atlas Peak and
Howell Mountain.
The Louis M. Martini 2011 Napa Valley Lot 1 Cabernet
Sauvignon is full bodied and complex. Capturing the
essence of Napa Valley’s terroir. When tasting, you will see

While they cannot promise a White
Christmas, on the Friday after Thanksgiving
the people of Yountville will transform their
town into a magical winter wonderland
nonetheless, using thousands of tiny (energy
efficient) twinkling lights. Celebrating its
twenty-sixth year, Yountville’s Festival of
Lights invites friends, families, neighbors and
visitors to play hooky from the shopping
mall and gather in the heart of one of the
world’s most popular destinations for a feelgood family event to kick off the holiday
season. Tasting bracelets are available now.

WHAt’s NeW?
Gone are the tiny tasting tickets of years
past, that had attendees scrambling in pockets
for cash. This year’s attendees will sport color-

32

coded tasting bracelets for food and wine and,
to ensure a pleasant experience for all,
bracelet sales will be limited. Attendees 21
and older receive a green bracelet and a
souvenir wine glass; designated drivers and
those under 21 receive a red bracelet for food
and non-alcoholic beverages (both are $35);
and, there’s a white tasting bracelet for
children under 12 ($15).
Beginning at 2:15 p.m., Santa will arrive
with sirens and flashing lights on CalFire’s
big hook-and-ladder fire truck. Carolers in
period costume will saunter down Main
Street, and everyone can join in a holiday
sing-a-long. There will be romantic carriage
rides clip-clopping down glittering lanes,
photos with Santa and his elves, a balloon
artist and a caricaturist, and other treats and
activities just for kids. Several groups will
lend their voices, music and talent to the

festivities, including VOENA, a stunning a
capella children’s choir which has performed
at the White House and the Olympic Games.
There will be a performance from The
Nutcracker by the Napa Regional Dance
Company and the Sugar Plum Fairy, and
additional local talent will round out the
day's entertainment. Retail shops throughout
town will be offering special pricing and
drawings for fabulous prizes.
Yountville’s award-winning restaurants
including Hurley’s, NapaStyle, Pacific Blues,
Redd Wood, Bouchon Bakery, Mustards,
Brix, étoile, and more will offer tasty bites,
and more than two dozen wineries will pour,
including Cliff Lede, Girard, Hestan,
Ma(i)sonry Napa Valley and Robert Mondavi.
Then, as the hour nears 5:30 p.m., Santa
and his elves plus the Sugar Plum Fairy will
start the countdown to the main event, when

Yountville will be set aglow with
thousands of sparkling lights
adorning trees and shops all
along Yountville’s main street.
Following the town lighting,
Yountville’s art galleries,
boutiques, tasting rooms and
restaurants will keep their doors
open well past their regular
hours for a relaxing, convenient
and enjoyable holiday shopping
experience. From hand-painted
chocolates and exquisite
jewelry, to local artwork and
luxury spa goodies, Yountville’s
local artists and artisans offer
something extra-special for
everyone on your holiday gift
list.
The Festival of Lights will
also feature a silent auction to
benefit children’s programs in
Yountville, and CalFire will be
on hand to collect toys for the
Napa County Toy Drive.
Admission to the Festival of
Lights is free. Tasting bracelets

presale NOW, online at

PeJu ProviNCe WiNerY
C’est Tres Magnifique!
BY MONICA L. DASHWOOD

You don’t have to travel to France to savor the delicious taste of
French culture. Peju Province Winery, located in Rutherford in the heart
of Napa Valley, brings French architecture, manicured gardens, top
culinary experiences, contemporary artwork and delicious Bordeaux
wines to you!
“Breathtaking” is the word that comes to mind when visiting the
tasting room at Peju Province Winery. As you approach the property,
you are welcomed by a row of graceful Sycamore trees, vibrant flower
gardens, modern sculptures and lush estate vineyards.
Family owned and operated for more than 30 years, founders Tony
and Herta (H.B.) Peju had a vision for the property long before they
purchased it. Today their daughters, Lisa and Ariana continue to offer
state-of-the-art tasting experiences to travelers from around the world.
Resembling a French provincial tower, the stucco and stone structure
is one of the tallest and most unique buildings in the Napa Valley,
designed by Southern California architect Calvin Straub. The tower is
surrounded by fountains, flowers and a reflective pool and graces the
label of every estate-bottled Peju wine. Inside, the tower showcases a
100-year-old stained glass window, cherry wood bottle racks which
prominently display award-winning, Bordeaux-style wines and legendary
proprietary blends.
After you walk through the elegantly designed rooms, peruse the
eclectic gift shops and upstairs art gallery, you can taste Peju’s varietal
wines in a number of ways. The Peju Classic Tasting offers guests a
sample of four current release wines in a presentation-style setting with
no reservations needed for groups 8 or less for $25 per person.
The Peju Private Tour, Barrel Tasting and Current Release Tasting
lasts 60 minutes and is for groups up to 8, available by reservation only.

antipasti, sweets and espresso bar.
Tony and Herta Peju (middle) with daughters Ariana and Lisa

Your tour begins with an introduction to the varied terroir on their
estate vineyard, the Rutherford appellation, the Peju family history,
and their approach to winemaking and viticulture. There, you’ll
sample from a barrel, explore their vineyards and the beautiful
surrounding gardens. This tour includes tastings of
their current wines for $50 per person.
The Peju Private Wine Tasting with Artisan
Cheeses also lasts 60 minutes for 2-12 people,
sampling four current release wines in a beautiful,
intimate setting. Guests will sit down in the Peju
kitchen or Rutherford Room where a tasting room
ambassador shares the story of each wine, Peju’s
history and winemaking style. Each wine is
paired with locally made artisan cheeses served
alongside assorted house-made crackers for $65
per person. (To learn more about their
personalized and customized culinary
experiences, contact the winery).
Lastly, the wine you don’t want to miss is
Peju’s flagship wine. The 2011 Reserve
Cabernet Sauvignon is balanced with the perfect
combination of sweet and savory components.
The wine has finesse and will develop even
greater complexity in the cellar, which will allow
it to age a decade or more. The retail price is
$115/bottle.

Andretti Winery Offers Educational Barrel Tasting Experience
BY BONNIE ZIMMERMANN

The Andretti Winery invites visitors the
opportunity to enjoy “La Buona Vita”, and
visit their Tuscan inspired estate, hidden
away deep in the heart of the Napa Valley.
Founded by world renowned racecar driver
Mario Andretti, the winery offers guests the
opportunity to experience ultra-premium
wines in a majestic and beautiful setting.
If this is your first visit to wine country,
you probably have wondered about “aging”
wines in French and American oak barrels to
gain complexity and balance. What are the
characteristics of a barrel that make wine
taste different? If you put the same wine in
two different types of barrels will they taste
different? The seasoned team at Andretti

Winery will be able to share their knowledge
of barrels and winemaking with you at an
exclusive Andretti Winery Barrel Tasting.
Andretti offers visitors a chance to
experience a barrel tasting in their vintage
barrel room. Hosted by one of Andretti’s
senior wine staff, this enlightening
experience starts with a taste of two wines in
the tasting room, and then moves into the
rustic barrel cellar for a barrel tasting.
Barrel tasting is a different experience
than wine tasting. When trying wines while
still in the barrel, the wine will be in the mid
process, with flavors that will likely tone
down over time. While sampling the young
wine your host will explain how the wine
evolves during aging and what might emerge

when it is time to bottle.
Understanding what to expect from barrel
samples can make the experience more
enjoyable and educational. After the barrel
tasting, guests will return to the tasting room
where they will be able to taste finished
wines of the same varietal and current
vintage to see how important the aging
process is in creating hand-crafted wines.
The barrel tasting is by appointment only
and is $25 per person.
A visit to Andretti Winery and the Tuscan
estate should not be missed. There are very
few spots in Napa that allow visitors to enjoy
wines at their own pace, explore the property
and art collection, and wander the vineyards
while enjoying some of the best wines Napa
has to offer. Andretti Winery is a hidden
gem and a great destination for that special
wine country afternoon.
Andretti Winery is located at 4162 Big
Ranch Road, Napa and is open from 10:30
a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. For more information,
call (707) 259-6777 or visit the website at

Blend Your Own Custom Wines with Judd’s Hill
Visiting Napa Valley is always a treat. And
as great as it is to sample offerings from some
of the world’s most popular wineries, we’ve
discovered a wine country excursion that
may be even better… crafting your own
personal Napa Valley Cuvee!
In 2009, the Finkelstein family of Judd’s
Hill had the forward-thinking idea of
creating a “Bottle Blending Day Camp”
experience (BBDC for short), during which
visitors to their winery, located at the
southern end of Napa’s Silverado Trail, can
actually craft their own, personal, Napa
Valley Bordeaux-style blend. The wines used
for this blending experience currently
include barrel lots of two Cabernet
Sauvignons, each from a different vineyard,
plus a Merlot and Cabernet Franc, all from
Napa Valley’s extraordinary 2012 vintage.
Judd’s Hill specializes in making small lots
of hand-crafted wines for their Judd’s Hill
label, and for dozens of their Custom
MicroCrush clients. It can take years to
convert clusters of grapes into a ready-todrink bottle of red wine. Blending finished
wine, however, is a vital part of the wine
making process that can be accomplished in
a relatively short time.
These BBDC experiences are led by
extremely knowledgeable and passionate
wine educators and take about two hours to
complete. During the session, a wine
educator will guide blenders through the
intricacies of creating a wine best suited to
the tastes of the blender, explaining and
demystifying the process along the way. Once
a favored cuvée has been decided upon and a
name is chosen, the newly minted wineblenders will complete the process by
hand-bottling, labeling and “spinning” foil
capsules over the bottle necks. The wine is
then ready to take home the same day!
The Bottle Blending Day Camp at Judd’s
Hill has several options: $225 enables you to
take home three finished bottles of wine;
$395 results in six bottles; $695 is a 12bottle adventure. A 24 case, full barrel
option, is also available (bottling will be at
later date). Sessions can be scheduled for any

38

day of the week, and 24 hours advanced
notice is usually sufficient for groups a large
as eight. The Judd’s Hill BBDC experience is
also a great outing for larger groups ranging
in size from 10-100. And if you don’t have
time to blend while you’re in wine country
you can swing by the winery or go to

juddshill.com and pick up their new “BBDC
Home Edition” blending kit. It comes
complete with everything you need to host
your own blending party in your own home.
Reservations can be made by calling the
winery at (707) 255-2332 or visiting their
website at www.juddshill.com.

3rd Annual Holiday Wine and Food
Experience at Grgich Hills Estate
On Saturday, November 8 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. – just in time for the holidays – you
can explore the pairing of great wines with scrumptious food at Grigch Hills Estate.
You’ll sample food at individual food stations, allowing you to taste how versatile the
wines are with a variety of flavors and textures.
Cost for the event is $55, $45 for wine club members if purchased in advance; at the
door, the price is $65, $50 for wine club members. For reservations, contact the
Hospitality Department via email at hospitality@grgich.com or call 1-800-532-3057.
Located at 1829 St. Helena Hwy (Hwy. 29) in Rutherford, Grgich Hills Estate was
founded in 1977 by Miljenko “Mike” Grgich and Austin Hills after the 1973 Chateau
Montelena Chardonnay crafted by Mike outscored the best of France in the now-famous
1976 Paris Tasting.
Today, this iconic winery farms 366 acres naturally, without artificial pesticides or
herbicides, and uses its passion and art to handcraft food-friendly, balanced and elegant
wines. Mike is assisted by his daughter, Violet Grgich, Vice President of Operations, and
his nephew, Ivo Jeramaz, Vice President of Vineyards and Production. For more
information, visit www.grgich.com.

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
HWY NO,
CALISTOGA
3718 ST HELENA
Cabernet Sauvignon,
Merlot
and
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.

“Best Winery in Napa” award for 5 consecutive years in the Bay Area A-List.
2012 Winery of the Year” by Connoisseurs guide to fine wine.

Founded in 1992, today Frank Family owns 380 acres of the finest vineyard land
in Napa Valley and has one of the biggest word-of-mouth followings in the wine
country. First constructed as the Larkmead Winery in 1884, the historic stone
building on the property was refinished with native sandstone from the nearby
hills in 1906. The massive stone edifice is considered one of the finest structures
in the Napa Valley; it appears on the National Register of Historical Places and is
listed as a Point of Historical Interest in the state of California.

Sonoma County Winegrowers Launch National
Advertising Campaign on Sustainability
First of its Kind Ad effort teaches sustainable
Winegrowing Practices to Wine Lovers
Last January, the Sonoma County Winegrowers announced its
groundbreaking commitment to become the nation’s first 100%
sustainable wine region within five years. The group of
predominantly family-owned wine grape farmers is well on its way to
meeting its 2019 goal and is now taking the next step to inform and
educate wine consumers on the eco-friendly benefits of buying a
Sonoma County wine with what is believed to be the first national
advertising campaign specifically focused on sustainable winegrowing
practices.
Rather than take a typical wine advertising approach profiling
local farmers and their families or picturesque vineyards, Sonoma
County’s leading wine industry stakeholders, including grape
growers, vintners, Master Sommeliers and others came together to
develop an advertising campaign that would communicate directly to
wine consumers with a tutorial on sustainability.
“Research continues to show that sustainability and ecoconsciousness matters to consumers when choosing a bottle of wine,
but they can’t always define what sustainability is,” said Karissa
Kruse, president of the Sonoma County Winegrowers. She added,

5050

“We want consumers to be knowledgeable about the 138 vineyard
practices that winegrape growers in Sonoma County are utilizing so
that they can buy any bottle of wine from Sonoma County with
confidence knowing that it has been produced in a manner that
protects the land, improves the quality of life for those working in the
industry and enhances the community where we live and work.”
The first ad in the campaign series, called 138, focuses on vine
balance using content taken directly from the California Code of
Sustainable Winegrowing and will appear in the November issues of
Food & Wine, Wine Spectator and Wine Enthusiast.
“This is the right advertising approach at the right time,” said
Corey Beck, board president of the Sonoma County Vintners and
president of Francis Ford Coppola Winery. He added, “As we travel
around selling our wines we are constantly asked about our approach
to sustainability by customers, retailers and sommeliers. People want
to know more about it and this campaign will educate them on our
practices as well as showcase Sonoma County’s leadership role.”
Sonoma County has some of the world’s most prized grape
growing areas in the world with the first vineyards dating back to the
1820s. The region’s unique combination of geological history and
consistent fog patterns generated by its 70-mile Pacific Ocean
coastline, and topography has given rise to 16 unique American
Viticultural Areas (AVA). Each AVA offers distinct climate, soils and
temperature areas perfect for growing world-class Pinot Noir,
Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel and more. Sonoma
County is also home to around 500 wineries whose wines are
renowned throughout the world.
The sustainability advertising concept and creative strategy was
developed by The IDEA Cooperative out of Marin County, CA. For
additional information, please visit us at www.sonomawinegrape.org,

Russian River Valley Celebrates Single Vineyard Wines
at 5th Annual ‘Single Vineyard Night’ in San Francisco
Artisan Cheese, KRAVE Jerky and others. A silent auction will
feature several opportunities to win exclusive wines and experiences
in the Russian River Valley. The prizes are valued up to $750 and
include private tours and tastings, signed large format or library
bottles and elegant overnight stays. For collectors, 100 “Instant
Cellar” raffle tickets will be sold, offering the winner over three cases
of acclaimed Russian River Valley wines.
“San Francisco wine enthusiasts are acutely appreciative of the
world-class wines that are produced just an hour from their home;
Single Vineyard Night allows us to expand their already sophisticated
palates with more rare, perhaps lesser known wines,” says Donatiello.
“It’s an added bonus that while the event brings the wines of the
Russian River Valley right to their neighborhood, many of the auction
lots offer fantastic opportunities for city wine lovers to travel north
and enjoy our neighborhood!”
Single Vineyard Night begins at 6:30 p.m. November 5, with
general tickets at $55. A $65 VIP ticket affords early admittance at
5:30 p.m. and other perks. An Expert Sommelier Seminar prior to
the event will feature a distinguished panel of some of San Francisco’s
finest sommeliers, who will discuss their favorite single vineyard

more than 30 Acclaimed Wineries to Pour Limited-Production vintages
Wednesday, November 5 from 6:30-8:30 p.m.
More than 30 of the Russian River Valley’s most preeminent
winemakers and winery proprietors will gather at San Francisco’s
Fort Mason General’s Residence for an evening celebrating some of
the more rare, limited-production vintages of the region. The fifth
annual, aptly named Single Vineyard Night will showcase just that –
small lot wines hailing from single vineyards throughout the
esteemed AVA, boasting rich flavors that perfectly display the distinct
soil and climate of the region. As they savor the nuances of these
special wines, attendees will enjoy the added benefit of expert
guidance from the winemakers and growers themselves.
“The Russian River Valley has long been acclaimed for our varied
soils and climates throughout the AVA, which account for the
beautifully complex nature of our wines,” says RRVW president,
Chris Donatiello. “What is fascinating to both, experienced wine
aficionados and novices, is that single vineyard wines offer many

“For generations, my family has said, ‘when you serve sparkling wine, you are
serving a smile,’” stated Gloria Ferrer. Here you are … feeling serene, sipping
acclaimed sparkling wine and munching on complimentary almonds on the Vista
Terrace at Gloria Ferrer Caves and Vineyards in Sonoma Carneros. The
undisturbed view of the valley overlooking the estate vineyard from the base of the
golden Sonoma Mountains is remarkable. The rockier Mayacama Mountains rise in
the distance and random patchwork vineyards dot the valley. You continue to
sample your sparkling wine flights while breathing in the experience. Simply,
sublime.

HistorY
The Ferrer family has been growing wine grapes since the 1500s and was the
family behind La Freixeneda – a 12th century farming estate and well-established
sparkling wine producers in Catalonia, Spain near Barcelona. José Ferrer’s parents,
Pedro Ferrer Bosch and Dolores Sala Ferrer united two prominent Spanish wine
families. The result was Freixenet, which would eventually become the world’s
largest producer of sparkling wines in the world.
José, his wife Gloria and son Pedro came to California, purchased a pasture in
1982 in Carneros – an ideal Mediterranean climate – and planted Pinot Noir and
Chardonnay grapes. They incorporated their Spanish winegrowing traditions and
winemaking practices in creating exceptional sparkling wines and estate varietal
wines. Gloria Ferrer Caves & Vineyards opened in 1986 as the first sparkling
winery in Carneros. Today, they own 335 prime acres of estate vineyards with
Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes.

WiNe CouNtrY tHis WeeK | soNomA CouNtY

The winery architecture blends California
mission design and Spanish-inspired
architecture modeled on the original Ferrer
family’s 11th-century Catalonian farmhouse
(masia) in the hills outside Barcelona in Sant
Sandurni d’Anoia. Spanish features are
included throughout the winery such as the
grapevine-covered Spanish arbor, the décor,
the red tile roof and stucco walls.

sPArKLiNg WiNes
Gloria Ferrer brings Old World
handcrafted wine practices in creating
California-style sparkling wines. They
planted Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes
in the Home Ranch and Circle Bar Ranch
estate vineyards, which produce the entire
fruit for their sparkling wines.
Their secret: carefully hand-harvesting
their grapes at night, carrying the grapes to
the winery in small bins and gently pressing
the fruit in whole clusters using membrane
presses in their méthode champenoise
(fermenting naturally in the bottle) and
storing the wine in cool underground caves.
The winemaking team creates seven diverse
sparkling wines from over 50 individual
wine lots as the blending palette. Through
the entire process – from grape harvest,
pressing, blending, double fermentation,
aging, bottling and riddling – it takes two to
ten years to produce a great bottle of Gloria
Ferrer sparkling wine. The distinctive blends
offer different flavors and textures including
Brut, Blanc de Noirs, Blanc de Blanc, Vintage
Prestige Cuvées and VA de VI. The Royal
Cuvée is a tribute to the King of Spain in
honor of their Spanish heritage.

Executive Winemaker Bob Iantosca,
Winemaker Steven Urberg and V.P. of
Production Mike Crumly move seamlessly
from the vineyard to the cellar producing
consistent quality Gloria Ferrer sparkling and
still wines from vintage to vintage. Gloria
Ferrer remains a leader in sustainable
farming practices including biodiversity, soil
health, water management, energy
conservation and in systematic approaches to
improving environmental practices. Bob said,
“The synergy between the winemaking and
the winegrowing teams is one of our greatest
benefits. Mike and I have studied every
block, year after year, with the ability to

Follow us on twitter @WineCountrytW

choose the rootstocks, clones, trellising, vine
spacing – everything we need to make the
best sparkling and estate varietal wines from
these Carneros vineyard sites.”

vArietALs
Gloria Ferrer began making still wine after
producing sparkling wine to demonstrate
further the mature vines that produce
modest yields with full fruit expression. They
purchased new land and constructed
vineyards specifically designated for estate
varietal wine grapes with heirloom vines,
constructed new extended underground
caves, purchased fermentation tanks, barrels
and a separate crush pad.
The four estate Pinots produced are
distinctly different due to site-specific terroir.
Gravel Knob and Rust Rock Terrace Pinot
Noir are two vineyard-designated wines
produced from the 128-acre Circle Bar
Ranch vineyard and the 207-acre Home
Ranch vineyard. The José S. Ferrer Selection
Pinot Noir is a blend of the best blocks from
the estate vineyards. The Carneros Pinot Noir
is a blend from eleven different soil types
from varied terrain and different clones and
selections.
Carneros is a prime cool climate for
producing their award-winning Carneros
Chardonnay with warm, sunny days and
cool nights. They planted the Chardonnay
grapes in the lower sections of the vineyard
where prime fruit flavor is optimal.
For the Carneros Merlot, they selected the
grapes south of the winery in the
Thimbleberry Block of the estate vineyards

along the hillside of a small valley with clay
soil similar to those of Pomerol in Bordeaux.

AWArd-WiNNiNg WiNes
Top sommeliers recognize Gloria Ferrer
wines in worldwide competitions awarding
over 400 gold medals. Wine experts
continue to deliver stellar reviews with over
30 outstanding 90+ ratings in the last five
years. In June, The Wine Spectator gave 93
points to the 2008 Anniversary Cuvée, 90
points to the 2003 Carneros Cuvée, and 90
points to the Sonoma Brut. Wine & Spirits
Magazine voted Gloria Ferrer the 2013
Winery of the Year. Steven Urberg, the
Winemaker said, “I enjoy the exercise in
subtlety involved with making sparkling
wines. The challenge lies in creating the
delicate texture and mouthfeel, while
maintaining balance with the fruit structure.”

A visit to Meadowcroft Wines located in the beautiful Cornerstone
Gardens in Sonoma, features award-winning, lush, single-vineyard
and limited production wines in a beautiful setting. The tasting room
offers several different flights of fine wines that will please any palate.
Visitors can taste three wines for $5 or six wines for $10 or enjoy
wines by the glass and explore the peaceful and pastoral gardens.
Three very special wine flights are also available for the discerning
wine lover. “The Cabernet Lovers Flight” features Cabernet from
Alexander Valley, Oak Knoll District and Meadowcroft’s very own 90+
point estate Mt. Veeder Cabernet. Wine insiders know that the fruit
from Mt. Veeder is some of the best in the world. “The Sweet Wine
Flight” features a both a dry and sweet Riesling, and the popular “All
She Wrote Port Style Dessert Wine.” The third flight includes wines
that have been hand-crafted for racing legend A.J. Foyt. “The Foyt
Flight” features Riesling, Chardonnay, Meritage-Cabernet Blend and
finishes with the Estate Mt. Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon.
For only $18 per person, visitors can indulge in a wine and
chocolate pairing with luscious La Belge chocolates (available daily)
or with 24 hour advance notice can enjoy a cheese and charcuterie
plate which range from $18 to $25 per person.
Meadowcroft Wines produces a diverse selection of wines that has
something special for every wine lover. The white wine portfolio
includes Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier and three distinctly different
Chardonnays. The red wine portfolio includes a rich Pinot Noir
(grown on the property at Cornerstone Gardens) a bright and food
friendly Sangiovese, Double Gold Medal winner Knights Valley
Zinfandel from the Speedy Creek Vineyard, and a wide selection of
Cabernet Sauvignons sourced from some of the best vineyards in
Napa and Sonoma.
The tasting room traditionally features reserve wines under the
Meadowcroft label, but on request visitors can sample the Foyt Flight
as well as wines from the Thomas Henry label. Thomas Henry pays
homage to owner Tom Meadowcroft’s father who shares the same
name.
Tom’s father was his first major influence in wine and after a
memorable summer of camping, backpacking and biking around
France, Tom wholeheartedly decided to peruse a career in wine. To
commemorate that connection and his father’s influence he chose to
create a label in his honor.
With a friendly, warm and informative hospitality staff, great wines
and beautiful surroundings a visit to Meadowcroft Wines will make a
special wine country memory for visitors to Sonoma.

Sonoma Valley Vintners and Growers Alliance
Announces 2014 Reserve Sonoma Valley Event
Tickets are on sale for the for the 2014 Reserve Sonoma Valley
event presented by Sonoma Valley Vintners and Growers Alliance
(SVVGA). This year’s event will be held on Saturday, November 1st.
Reserve Sonoma Valley celebrates the unique depth and diversity
to be found throughout the Sonoma Valley wine region, through a
collection of eight themed excursions. Each day-long excursion
includes guided visits to four wineries, chauffeured transportation
and a wine country picnic lunch.
“Sonoma Valley is the birthplace of the California wine industry,
and there are so many hidden gems and compelling stories to share,”
says Maureen Cottingham, SVVGA Executive Director, “this event
allows us to feature some of the people, places and wines that make
Sonoma Valley so special.”

• History in the Making
• Harvest in Sonoma Valley
• Generations of Sonoma Valley - Family Wineries
• Sommelier Tour

• Discover Moon Mountain District
• Discover Sonoma Valley
“With Reserve Sonoma Valley we really take a less is more
approach, says Scott Black, SVVGA Marketing Director, “each
excursion is purposely limited to just 12 participants each, allowing
for a much more intimate experience than your typical wine country
event can provide.”
For detailed information on the excursions offered and to
purchase tickets for this year’s event visit the SVVGA website,
www.sonomavalleywine.com. Tickets for all excursions are $110 per
person, and advanced purchase is required. All Reserve Sonoma
Valley participants must be 21 or older to attend.

non-profit trade organization serving over 500 members who share a
mission to promote awareness of Sonoma Valley’s grapes, wine, and
history as the birthplace of the California wine industry. The Sonoma

Mushroom Madness in Mendocino County
the 15th Annual mushroom, Wine & Beer Fest salutes
All things ‘shroom with Hunts by Horseback, Winemaker events,
skunk train Parties and Forest Forages
As the flavors of fall arrive in Northern California’s Mendocino
County so does the annual crop of coveted candy cap, chanterelle,
porcini and morel mushrooms. Straddling historic Highways 1 and
101 with nearly 2,500 square miles of live oak, pygmy forests and
stately redwood groves, the region is a natural hotspot for some
3,000 mushroom varieties. The annual haul is nothing short of
historic, nurturing nirvana for local mycologists, chefs and fungi
foragers. Add to the mix a cache of artisanal chefs, 95+ wineries, a
formidable craft beer and hard cider scene and the annual salute to
Mr. Fungi sprouts into action November 7-16, 2014
Visitors can tap into a variety of adventures from mushroom hunts
by horseback, foraging excursions, Pinot and porcini menus,
educational seminars, art exhibits and the annual Skunk Train trek

event, regional hotel properties and restaurants are offering special
menus and packages throughout November.
