WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK

Good to Know Before Heading to the Wineries


BY CHARLES NEAVE

For the most part, going wine tasting is about the easiest thing in
the world, especially here in California where wineries and tasting
rooms abound. You can find wineries specializing in red wines of all
types, those that are famous for their white wines and others who
pour sparkling wine. It is a matter of doing a little research and
planning your day. Most tasting rooms open around 10 a.m. and
close between 4:30 and 6 p.m. Here are some tips that have proven
to be helpful and are designed to help make the sensory adventure of
wine tasting all the more enjoyable.
Before you start off pack a few essentials: Water (plenty of water)
and something to snack on crackers or a baguette. Many wineries
have picnic areas and there are plenty of delis and bakeries that can
make up a lunch for you, or make your own. Which brings us to
eating and drinking, the kind that doesnt directly involve wine.
Be sure to nibble during the day and make sure you make time for
lunch. Two tips: drink at least twice as much water as you do wine,
and remember that you dont have to drink everything poured into
your glass. There is a reason tasting bars have dump buckets and a
pitcher of water to wash out your glass.
Dont be afraid to ask questions. Time and time again I have heard
knowledgeable winery workers say that there is no such thing as a
stupid question, and they mean that.
You can drink what you want, in the order you want. If you only like

www.WineCountryThisWeek.com

reds, say so; if you dont like sweet wines, speak up. But the idea of
starting with whites, then going on to reds and then sweet wines is a
good guide. Zinfandel is red. I am sure you know that but it never
hurts to remind everyone.
If there is a particular wine you want to try and it is not on the list,
ask. There might be a bottle around that was opened for a trade
tasting or by the winemaker. Most tasting rooms are happy to pour a
little if you show enthusiasm.
Take notes on the wines you most enjoyed.
Take advantage of tours when the winery offers them, but keep in
mind that they take anywhere from 20 minutes to well over an hour,
so one a day is plenty.
Buy wines that you can only find at the winery. These often include
smaller (375 ml) bottles of limited production Ports or dessert wines.
Dont buy a wine you can get at a supermarket back home. Youll pay
more, and besides, whats the point?
Look for tasting rooms in towns. Many of these are cooperative
tasting rooms, where in one place you might find wines from a dozen
or more small-to-medium premium producers. They are scattered
throughout the area and more are opening all the time.
Dont give too much thought to ratings and vintages. Its like art: if
you like it, its a good wine. It is as simple as that.
Remember that you dont have to do the driving. It takes no more
than a phone call hire a transportation company to do the driving.

INTELLIGENCE FOR THE WINE CONSUMER


BY LEN NAPOLITANO

What is tannin?
Wine dryness, which provides palate-like structure for red
wine, comes from tannin, a natural chemical compound of grape
skins, seeds, stems, and oak. Its a key component of red wine and,
if uncontrolled, gives wine harshness and astringency. It can do
the same to wine as it does to a cup of hot tea after it cools down
make it bitter and hard to drink.
The majority of wine tannin is extracted during juice
maceration and fermentation. Naturally, red wine, by virtue of its
longer contact time with grape skins, has significantly more
tannin, that is, dryness, than white wine. A secondary source of
tannin comes from the oak barrels in which wine is aged. Wood
tannin contributed by barrels varies, depending on the type of oak
and toasting temperature.
Tannin also acts as a wine stabilizer, helping it age longer by
protecting aroma and flavor. It enables long-term aging in bottle, a
reason why you dont find as many old white wines as red.

Typically, a cabernet sauvignon will show significantly more of its


dry, firm tannin at two to three years old than it will after it has
aged in the bottle for say, 10 years or longer. In extreme cases, a
newly released cabernet can exhibit so much tannin, it becomes
hard to taste any fruit at all. As wine ages, however, tannin
develops a softer, silk-like texture, lessened by time but not so
much as to lose its capacity to preserve the wines delicate fruit
component.
A red wine is at its peak for consumption when it has reached
an age with perfect balance in tannin structure and fruit
expression. Largely unpredictable to pinpoint, fine wines are
known to take years, sometimes decades, to acquire that magical
balance.

BY JOSH STEIN

Cover Crops: The Keys to Nutrition,


Frost Protection and Irrigation in Drought Year Four
I know I wondered as I drove past my first years in wine country,
so I am positive others have, too. Why do some vineyards have
nothing between the rows while others have every other or even every
row filled with flowery green, yellow, red, purple and even brown
plants? Believe it or not, you can tell a lot not just about the weather
but about the vineyard management philosophy just by looking
between the rows of vines rather than at them as is usually the case.
Cover crops matter because they affect the soil health the vines are
growing within and the irrigation levels of that soil. They have a huge
impact on erosion control, which is vital in wet winter months on
vine-dormant hillsides. Equally, in the drier times, like now, cover
crops can help with dust control, which also means pest control and
encouragement of beneficial bugs. And depending on the kind of
crops chosen and the microclimates proclivity to frost, cover crops can
help to protect vines from inclimate weather damage by helping to
keep the temperature the needed degree or two above freezing.
The reasons cover crops are so important are connected to what
vines dont do: move once in place, so everything around them
becomes really important. Unlike annual row crops, its four years

before vines start to give commercial production levels, and its often at
least two decades between replantings if at all as there are
empirical connections between older vines and great wines. In that
context, the mutability of cover crops becomes apparent, necessary,
and prudent, wouldnt you think?
Given the impact on soil irrigation levels, you will see a variety of
stripping patterns in the vineyards of wine country, which reveals a lot
about the years weather to date to the discerning eye. Is it early, but
the cover crops are already gone? A dry winter with no rain in sight, so
nothing is allowed to compete with vine irrigation. Already late spring
and the vineyards still look abundant with all sorts of grasses, clovers,
and mustards? A very wet year with the cover crops still above ground
to help pull water out of the soil. Some rows mown or tilled in early
spring? Someones making adjustments to soil water levels in different
areas of the vineyard, responding in a very immediate way to what the
weather gives and takes away. Cover crops and vines living amicably
together even as harvest approaches? Youre looking at a vineyard
designed to produce balance year-round, and probably organic or
biodynamic, to boot.
This year presents some very unique considerations, as you might
imagine. We saw vines become active in early March, and white
varieties in some locations had a foot of growth before April Fools.
Despite the warm and dry winter, frost is still a possibility because its
ocean flows which impact greatly the fifty-degree diurnal swing we
can see in such a situation. The wrong cold front at the wrong time in
April and May could spell real problems.
Thus, some growers have left their rows wild and almost riotous to
help with potential frost issues while others have already disced under
every or every other row and then smoothed them over in hopes of
preserving what soil moisture there is from being atmospherically lost,
gambling more on preservation than protection. Most vineyards have
their own catchponds, but after multiple years of way under-average
precipitation, even they are starting lower, making the conventional
anti-frost use of water via sprinklers an issue until June if they are to
have enough water for the rest of the season.
Its a lot to think about, no? The next time you drive by or get to go
into a vineyard, not only will you now know what youre seeing, youll
know why its there, and when you then taste the wines from that
vineyard, youll have a bit of insight into why its so much easier to be
a California winemaker these days than a California winegrower:
much of the heavy work in the vineyard and in the head is already
done long before they see the resulting grapes. Enjoy!

Newtons love for history can be seen in the winerys towers

Balletto Vineyards and Winery, best known for their Pinot Noir, share their love for this
special vintage and their land in the heart of the Russian River Valley. Take a trip here, and you
will quickly come to appreciate the deep rooted passions of a hard-working, winemaking
family founded on the stunning beauty of this region.
The Ballettos were farmers in the late 70s, but in 1995 economic and soil conditions,
turned their a thriving vegetable business into vineyards. In 2001, the first wine was made
under the Balletto label. Today, their 14 estate vineyards encompasses 600 acres in three
regions located in the cool and foggy southern tip of the Russian River Valley: seven vineyards
on the on the Santa Rosa Plains, six in the Sebastapol Hills and Hazels vineyard in the
Petaluma Gap. By selecting ten percent of the best grapes, they maintain the finest quality and
style for 16 varietal wines produced and offered on their tasting menu.
Consistent winners, Balletto produces eight vintages of Pinot Noir grown from unique estate
vineyards, born of distinct soils and cool climates of Sonoma Countys Russian River Valley.
Recently, Balletto Vineyards & Winery was rated Best Pinot in North Bay Biz magazine.
Come sample for yourself, included on their tasting menu is the 2012 Balletto Pinot Noir
which won the Gold 2014 San Francisco Chronicle Competition and was rated 91 points by
Wine Enthusiast. This garnet colored vintage has an intense aroma profile, with equal parts of
bright red fruit, warm savory units, a hint of dark toast and forest floor earthiness that give the
wine extra depth. In addition, the 2013 Balletto Sexton Hill Pinot Noir coveted the Double
Gold 2014 Sonoma County Harvest Fair award, a bold and complex wine with its deep ruby
color and briary aromas of wild berries and candied apple.
Besides the making of top quality wines, the preservation of land is on top of the Balletos
list. The western edges of his property are shared with the Laguna de Santa Rosa wetland
habitat and are preserved lands.

Tempranillo Advocates, Producers and Amigos Society


Presents its Annual Grand Wine Tasting, April 26
The worlds most comprehensive tasting of
American-produced Tempranillo celebrates its
8th year in 2015, when the Tempranillo
Advocates, Producers and Amigos Society
(TAPAS) conducts its annual Grand Wine
Tasting at the Golden Gate Club at the
Presidio in San Francisco on Sunday, April 26,
2015. Join nearly thirty TAPAS member
vintners as they showcase their top
Tempranillo bottlings as well as other Iberian
varietal wines.
Trade and curious consumers will have the
opportunity to taste Tempranillo, Albario,
Garnacha, Verdelho, Touriga Naional and
several other Spanish and Portuguese varieties,
in a casual walk-around setting where they can
chat with growers and vintners. Attendees will
be encouraged to explore the diversity of
grapes and styles produced across the western
United States including a debut showing from Texas. Many TAPAS

members are limited-production, family-owned


wineries and will be pouring small lot wines that
are not widely available. Many of the wines will
also be available for sale at the event.
TAPAS President Stuart Spencer (of St. Amant
Winery in Lodi) says, The TAPAS Grand Tasting
is a unique opportunity for you to discover,
savor and celebrate this treasure chest of exotic
and delightfully food-friendly wines. You will
gain appreciation for what some visionary
winegrowers are doing here on American soil.
Dont miss it!
This years event will also feature a
Tempranillo Shootout starting at noon a blind
tasting of four domestic Tempranillos versus
four Spanish versions, moderated by Patrick
Comiskey, Senior Correspondent for Wine &
Spirits Magazine, regular contributor to the Los
Angeles Times, wine judge, educator and writer
for many other publications.

seminars:
- Albario: Taste an exciting selection of Albario wines vinified by

Tickets to the Tempranillo Shootout and Consumer Tasting are
now on sale at tapas15.eventbrite.com.
TAPAS, now in its eleventh year, started at the 2004 Unified
Symposium, when Tempranillo winegrowers from California,
Oregon, Washington, Texas and Arizona met for the first time to
discuss their avocation. Since that first visionary group pointed the
way, the organization has incorporated and grown to over 100
members. The first Grand Wine Tasting was held at Copia in Napa
in 2008, and has continued annually since then, as one of many
initiatives to promote Tempranillo and other varietal wine grapes
native to the Iberian Peninsula and wines produced from them in
North America.

WINERY FEATURE | WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK

ACACIA VINEYARD
Rolling Carneros Hills and Fantastic Wines
for Thirty-Five Years and Counting
BY JOSH STEIN

With the finest of wines, its what the winemaker doesnt do which
matters much more than what she does. If youve got great grapes, you
dont need to over-work the result; at Acacia Vineyard, which was founded
in 1979 less than two miles from San Pablo Bay, theyve got one hundred
and fifty acres worth of great grapes which have produced worldrenowned Chardonnay and Pinot Noir for more than three decades. And
as members of the Carneros Wine Alliance, Acacia has taken the lead in
making sure Carneros stays a place which will always produce great
grapes. What else would you expect from one of the few wineries getting it
right about Carneros from the start?
Indeed, Acacia was one of the first to recognize the Carneros regions
potential, and the winery was also a forerunner in vineyard-designating
their wines because of the lot-by-lot methodology it has employed for its
fermentations. Rather than homogenizing the grapes or juice, each
vineyard block is made separately and goes into its own barrels, allowing
time and cellar conditions to do their magic before any decisions are made
about bottling this helps to preserve the uniqueness of each vintage and
the specialness of the particular vineyard in the glass.
And thats the other part of Acacias success as how best to deliver these
kinds of results vintage after vintage is what the Acacia system has been
developing since before just about anyone else in Carneros. Long before
any grapes have been crushed, attention to lots of details has to have taken
place: meticulous pruning, careful canopy and cluster management,
planting beneficial cover crops within the vineyards, and constant
monitoring of all facets of the vineyard environment are required to
produce the best grapes. Once judged ready for picking, every lot is
harvested and sorted by hand only perfect grapes go into Acacia

Chardonnay, Pinot, or any other wine! The
winemaking is equally as detail-oriented, focusing
on gentle handling and extraction, by-hand punch
downs for reds, and barrel fermentations for
whites.
The tasting room is, naturally, the best place to
try these wines and see the winemaking in action,
and the enthusiastic staff are happy to pour their
best. Acacias Pinot Noirs exhibit seductive flower,
tea and fruit aromas, and they showcase layered
fruit flavors complimented by spice notes. Equally,
Acacias Chardonnays show off opulent aromas of
fruit and citrus, and oak is used only as accent to generous fruit and
spices. In addition to several different vineyard-designated bottling of
these classics, the tasting room also pours other exclusive releases,
which include Ros of Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc and Late Harvest
Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah and Viognier. Dont skip these they show
off what happens when winemaker Matthew Glynn gets to play a bit.
Enjoying these releases is simple enough, and all of the options
can easily be booked online. The Acacia Tour and Tastings personal
guide takes folks through the story of Acacias history and property,
and once the tour is complete, visitors have the opportunity to taste
delicious white and red Acacia wines only available at the winery; the
tour also includes a barrel sample of up and coming Acacia wines.
There are two different tasting options, too. The Acacia Tasting offers

www.WineCountryThisWeek.com

a mix of whites ands reds, including single-vineyard


and winery-only bottlings, while the Acacia Premier
Tasting features a red wine flight which includes five
wines from amongst the Vineyard Designate and
Estate Pinot Noirs. Each gives insight into how the
grapes have been transformed the Acacia way.
And for those looking for something really
special, May 2nd to 3rd brings Farm Stand at
Acacia, an amazing weekend of wine tasting, farm
fresh foods and local artists. Visitors will taste the
current releases; sample local artisanal olive oil,
mustard and chocolate sauces; and shop from a
selection of local artists and jewelers. The 2012 Orogeny Pinot Noir
and Chardonnay, both from Russian River Valley, have just been
released, too, so the timing is good for those looking for new
bottlings to enjoy.
As you can see, Acacia Vineyard has made it into the middle of its
fourth decade for a reason: the focus is put where it matters
making great wines from great grapes. Thats why theyve received 10
scores of 90 points or higher from Wine Spectator in the last year
alone. Do yourself a favor and go in between the two big wine areas
of Napa and Sonoma to appreciate what such close proximity to the
oceans influence allows: scintillating wines which show their place of
origin in glass after glass and bottle after bottle. Youll be glad you
did. Enjoy!

Napa Valley Vintners Announces Premiere Napa Valley Wine Offerings


The Napa Valley Vintners invites wine enthusiasts and collectors to
preview the one-of-a-kind, limited production wines that will be
available at Premiere Napa Valley in February 2015. Created solely for
the Premiere Napa Valley portfolio and produced in quantities as
small as 60 and never more than 240 bottles, the wines will be sold
exclusively to members of the wine trade during the nonprofit trade
associations annual barrel tasting and auction. Descriptions of the 225
lots can be viewed at premierenapawines.com
For Premiere Napa Valley, every winemaker crafts a blend that is
truly unique from all of the other wines they produce, notes Michael
Scholz of the St. Supry Estate Vineyards and Winery team that is
chairing the 2015 Premiere Napa Valley Steering Committee. The
barrel they create is the only barrel of its kind making Premiere Napa
Valley one of the rarest wine brands in the world.
Though reminiscent of how Hospice de Beaune wines are
produced, the process is uniquely American. For example,
winemakers might use a grape variety they would not normally bottle
as a stand-alone wine under their own brand. The grapes may be
sourced from a specific part of a single vineyard, or the wine might be
aged using a unique barrel regime not regularly employed by the
winery. Some of the most novel offerings are produced as joint lots
multiple vintners who collaborate to create a blend exclusively for the
Premiere Napa Valley brand.
The wines are offered as futures at the auction only to licensed
members of the wine trade for resale to their customers and ultrapremium wine collectors. Each bottle is hand-labeled, individually
numbered and signed by the winemaker, similar to a limited edition
work of fine art.

WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK | NAPA VALLEY

Mark Beringer to Join Beringer Vineyards as Chief Winemaker


Beringer Vineyards announced the hiring of Mark Beringer as
Chief Winemaker beginning April 20th, 2015. A direct descendant of
founding brother Jacob Beringer, Mark brings a familial passion as
well as decades of winemaking experience to Beringer. Its an honor
to step in and continue the legacy of winemaking that Beringer has
long been known for. I am incredibly excited to craft wines that
reflect the best of Napa Valley the very same sentiment that led my
great-great-grandfather to establish Beringer in 1876, said Mark
Beringer. Most recently at Artesa with additional experience at
Duckhorn, Mark brings great winemaking skill as well as years of
working across a variety of Napa Valley vineyards and appellations.
This month will also mark the transition of Beringers Chief
Winemaker, Laurie Hook, to Winemaker Emeritus. Laurie has been
with Beringer Vineyards since 1986, when she joined as enologist
under then Winemaker Ed Sbragia. Laurie was promoted to
Winemaker in 2000 and continued to work under Ed until his
transition to Winemaster Emeritus in 2008. As Winemaker Emeritus,
Laurie will continue to advise on winemaking and represent the
winery at key events.
We are thrilled to have Mark Beringer on board, said Sandra
LeDrew, Chief Commercial Officer, Treasury Wine Estates Americas.
His depth of experience and enthusiasm will serve Beringer well as
we enter this next chapter, one that will highlight why we remain one
of the most iconic wineries in California. We thank Laurie for the

passion, dedication and expertise she has given to Beringer


Vineyards.
Lauries contributions to winemaking at Beringer far exceed the
notable and continued acclaim for the brand's flagship Private
Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon. They include an evolution of style on
the Private Reserve Chardonnay, Knights Valley Cabernet and the
introduction of some of the winerys recent bestsellers including
Knights Valley Reserve, Luminus Chardonnay and Quantum Red
Blend. Her legacy at Beringer will be reflected in the many
outstanding wines she crafted during her tenure. Laurie Hook
commented, Im looking forward to my next challenge and while
this transition will be bittersweet, I will take pleasure in advising as
Winemaker Emeritus and remain confident our extraordinary
collection of vineyards, unique legacy and commitment to innovation
will live on in Beringers impressive portfolio of wines under Marks
leadership.

Beringer Vineyards
The longest continually operating winery in California, Beringer
has been Napa Valley's benchmark producer since its establishment in
1876. An acclaimed portfolio of wines are crafted from Napa's finest
appellations and Beringer's exceptional collection of vineyards. The
historic estate in St. Helena offers a tradition of hospitality that
defines the Napa Valley. www.beringer.com.

More than 100 years of winemaking excellence!


e legacy of innovation and bold vision continues to live on today.

Perfect Pairs

BY MELISSA VOGT

Judds Hill Cabernet Franc


Perfectly Paired with
Lamb Skewers with Mint Sauce
& Whole Wheat Couscous
Theres something really special about pairing lamb with
Cabernet Franc especially when the lamb is grilled and
drizzled in a delicious mint, olive oil and lemon sauce. At
Judds Hill Winery in Napa, they have been producing
Cabernet Franc from vineyards planted in the eastern foothills
of southern Napa since 2009, and this lamb skewers recipe
they have developed is incredible with their 2011 vintage.
The 2011 Cabernet Franc from Judds Hill is expressive and
complex with inviting aromas of currant and blueberry. On
the palate, rich flavors of boysenberry, raspberry and
blackberry create the perfect combination of fruit-forwardness,
balanced by notes of fresh vanilla bean. These flavors are
perfectly suited to the lamb skewers with mint sauce, served
over whole wheat couscous.
By marinating the lamb in a cumin, paprika and turmeric
spice combination, along with salt and pepper, the lamb is
richly flavored with just the right amount of spice to really
heighten the flavors of the wine. The spices contrast the
fruitiness and complement the earthiness that is derived from
the volcanic soils in which the vines are planted. Of course,
the lamb itself is very succulent and flavorful, bringing an
immense amount of richness to the body and texture of the
wine. Furthermore, grilling the lamb adds a whole new layer
of complexity to this pairing bringing desirable smoky
flavors from the lamb into the wine.
The mint, olive oil, lemon juice and lemon rind sauce is a
great accompaniment to the flavors of this pairing. Mint and
Cabernet Franc make a natural coupling, while the lemon
juice and rind provide a zesty contrast for added complexity.
With so many complementary and contrasting layers of flavor
and texture, this lamb skewers and Cabernet Franc pairing is
sure to please every palate.
For more incredible recipes from Judds Hill Winery, visit
their website at www.juddshill.com, or visit them in their
tasting room at 2332 Silverado Trail in Napa.

MINI LAMB SKEWERS


WITH MINT SAUCE AND WHOLE WHEAT COUSCOUS
Pairing for Judds Hill 2011 Cabernet Franc

Yield: 4 servings

INGREDIENTS
1.5 lb boneless lamb shoulder steak,
trimmed and cut in 1-inch cubes
tsp ground cumin
tsp smoked paprika
tsp turmeric
Coarse sea salt
Freshly ground pepper
1.5 cups whole wheat couscous
1 large garlic clove, finely minced
2.5 cups low sodium chicken broth (may
substitute with vegetable broth)

cup fresh mint leaves,


roughly chopped
cup extra virgin olive oil
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
tsp lemon rind
2 red bell peppers,
cut in 1.5-inch squares
1 large brown onion,
cut in 1.5-inch squares
You will need: 5 bamboo skewers; soak
in water for 20 minutes before grilling

PREPARATION: In a medium bowl combine lamb, cumin, paprika, turmeric. Season


with salt and pepper; massage using hands and making sure to coat all meat evenly.
Set aside and allow resting for 15 minutes.
While beef marinates, bring chicken or vegetable broth to a boil over medium high
heat. Combine dry couscous with minced garlic in a deep bowl or container with a tight
lid. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Add hot liquid carefully, stir
with a spoon, and cover with lid. Let couscous hydrate for at least 15 minutes.

Assemble all skewers starting and ending with red bell pepper and making sure to add
onions on each side and in-between cubes of lamb. Grill on high heat for 5-7 minutes,

Prominent Clos Pepe Vineyard Leased To Walt Wines


Pioneering Santa Barbara-based vintners Stephen and Cathy Pepe
announced that they have entered into a long-term partnership with
WALT Wines, a St. Helena-based specialist in vineyard specific Pinot
Noir from California and Oregon. The 29-acre winery and vineyard
was founded in 1994 on Highway 246, just 8 miles east of Lompoc,
CA.
My wife Cathy and I have enjoyed our two decades of producing
Pinot Noir in the Santa Rita Hills, says vintner Stephen Pepe. We
have decided to scale down our lifestyle after dedicating over 20+
years in crafting Pinot Noir. We are thrilled to be able to work with
the talented team at WALT and plan to continue live on the property
and sell Clos Pepe wines for years to come. Cathys son, Wes Hagen,
has been actively involved with the operation since day one as the
vineyard manager and head winemaker.
When the Pepe family arrived in Lompoc in 1994, the Santa Rita
Hills was just emerging as a premier appellation for Pinot Noir.
Steve, Cathy and Wess efforts helped define Pinot Noir from the
Santa Rita Hills, and partially due to their success, other prominent
vineyards have earned notable vineyard success in the area. During
this time, Wes developed a national reputation as a prominent
winemaker and wine educator. Wes was also one of the principal
draftspersons of the Sta. Rita Hills AVA as well as two other AVAs in

56

Santa Barbara County.


We have been producing Pinot Noir from the Clos Pepe Vineyard
for the past five vintages, says WALT President Mike Reynolds. The
wines demonstrate a unique combination of elegance and
concentration and we are thrilled to have a deeper connection with
this vineyard for years to come.
The Clos Pepe vineyard consists of 29 acres of sustainable Pinot
Noir and Chardonnay vines producing some of the finest fruit and
wine in the world. Sustainably farmed with low yields and no
herbicide or insecticide, the Clos Pepe vineyard is exposed to wind
and fog and features small vines and clusters. The site includes 25
planted acres of Pinot Noir as well as four planted acres of
Chardonnay. Relationships with select buyers of Clos Pepe Pinot
Noir and Chardonnay will continue.
The Clos Pepe Estate is located at 4777 East Highway 246 in
Lompoc, CA 93436. For more information, visit www.clospepe.com
or by call (805) 735-2196.
WALT specializes in premier, small-lot Pinot Noir and
Chardonnay from some of the most coveted vineyards along the
West Coast. The WALT Tasting Room is located at the Sonoma Plaza
in Sonoma and is open to the public. For more information, visit
www.waltwines.com or by calling (707) 933-4440.

B.R. Cohn Charity Events Announces 2015 Sonoma Music Festival


October 2-4 at Sonomas Field Of Dreams:
Chicago, America playing October 2
Ringo Starr and His All-Starr Band, Pablo Cruise playing October 3
Doobie Brothers with Michael McDonald, Gregg Allman on October 4
Tickets are now on sale for B.R. Cohn Charity Events (BRCCE)
2015 Sonoma Music Festival, October 2-4 at the Field of Dreams
near downtown Sonoma. Appearing at the successor to his fabled
28-year winery fall festival are Chicago and America on Friday
evening, October 2; Ringo Starr and His All-Starr Band with Pablo
Cruise Saturday evening, October 3; and the Doobie Brothers with
Michael McDonald, Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Gregg Allman, the
Edgar Winter Band, Tommy Castro and others Sunday afternoon,
October 4. Tickets and information are available on the website at
www.sonomamusicfestival.com or call 1-888-810-2063.
Tickets range from VIP experiences starting at $1000, $350 to
$219 for Gold Circle (Friday/Saturday) and $119 and $89 for
general admission seated tickets for all days. A limited amount of
$47 local Sonoma tickets for standing room only will be available in
person with locations announced soon. Special ticket packages,
including three-day tickets and limo packages, will also be available
through the website.
The Sonoma Music Festival was born from the desire of BRCCE
to change up its annual fall event formerly at B.R. Cohn Winery and
move it closer to town for a more community event. The new Field
of Dreams location not only puts the concert goer two blocks from

Sonomas Plaza, it allows the festival the opportunity to grow and


generate more proceeds for charity. This years beneficiaries include
national and local veterans organizations including Fisher House
and American Legion Post 489, the Redwood Food Bank, Bread and
Roses and others to be announced. Over its 28-year history BRCCE
has raised more than 6.5 million dollars for charity.
This is a very impressive three-day line-up, exclaimed Bruce
Cohn. Not only do we get to finally present a Beatle, but all of
these great acts are a perfect fit for Sonoma and wine country. Come
up to stay, shop and enjoy this great music-filled fundraising
weekend.
The Field of Dreams set-up, while different than the winery setup, still allows in the BRCCE tradition, great sight lines and access
no more than 150 feet from the stage. With the newly added night
time headliners, video and projection screens will make sure you
dont miss a thing happening on stage. These are rain or shine
shows.
Plans call for the best music, food and wine Sonoma has to offer.
Many of the regions finest purveyors are joining in, including
Lagunitas Brewing, a pop-up HopMonk beer garden, high-end and
popular restaurants and, of course, some of the best wine in
California including B.R. Cohn and many others. There will be no
in and out privileges.

Coro Mendocino Celebrates 2012 Vintage


with Release Party in San Francisco, June 19
The Iconic and Collaborative Label Debuts its 2012 Collection of Wines
with a Multi-Course Winemaker Dinner at Dogpatch WineWorks in SF
Coro Mendocino, a collection of ultra-premium wines produced
to showcase the rich heritage and unique characteristics of
Mendocino County, will debut its 2012 vintage at their 12th Annual
Release Party on Friday, June 19, 2015. This year, Coro Mendocino is
excited to announce that it has moved the annual events host
location from Mendocino County to San Francisco, with Dogpatch
WineWorks in the DogPatch District of San Francisco hosting the
event.
We are beyond excited to grow this annual event by hosting our
first-ever Release Party in San Francisco, states Hoss Milone,
Marketing Manager for Coro Mendocino and Winemaker at Brutocao
Cellars. While Mendocino has been a wonderful location for our
Release Dinner for the past 11 years, in 2015 we are looking forward
to sharing the Coro story with a larger audience, outside the borders
of our beloved Mendocino County.
The 2012 vintage marks the 12th release for Coro Mendocino,
and includes wines from eight diverse Mendocino County vintners.
The christened label and blend known as Coro named and
inspired from the Latin root for chorus is the first wine of its kind
to set blending and aging parameters for a wine distinctive to its
region in the United States.
Every Coro wine is a signature blend, individually handcrafted in
Mendocino County from 100 percent Mendocino County grapes, in
strict accordance with the production protocols and bylaws set forth
by Consortium Mendocino. Zinfandel, the countys heritage varietal,
must make up no more than 70 percent and no less than 40 percent
of the wine. Nine other types of grapes may be included, typically
Rhne or Italian varietals.*
All Coro Mendocino wines are aged a minimum of one year in the
barrel and one in the bottle before the world is permitted to taste
them. Even then, no one can sip until the winemakers in the
Consortium have blind-tasted every wine and determined that the
wine is worthy of the Coro label.
2015 marks the 12th vintage of the Coro Mendocino label,
established in 2000 by a collection of liked-minded Mendocino
County winemakers. The reviews for previous years have been
effusive, calling the wines smooth, lush, intense, sophisticated and
fun, and rich, long and stylish.
Of course, no two Coro wines are ever exactly alike. Oenophiles
will have the opportunity to be the first to taste the 2012 vintage at
the official Coro Release Party on June 19, at Dogpatch WineWorks in
San Francisco. Each vintner will pour selections of their white, red
and sparkling wines during the welcome reception (beginning at 6
p.m.) while guests nosh on bites and nibbles created by Park Avenue

New WineryGeek app now available for iPhone and Android!

Catering. Following the opening reception, guests will be seated and


enjoy a gourmet, four-course meal (also prepared by Park Avenue
Catering), with each course being paired with two of the 2012
vintage Coro wines. Each table will host a different winemaker or a
winery representative from a Coro winery to answer any questions
guests might have about Coro and the wines being poured. The
evening will conclude with a selection of beautifully handmade
desserts and treats, paired with ports and dessert wines from the
participating Coro wineries.
Wineries participating in Coro Mendocinos 2012 Annual Release
Party include: Barra of Mendocino, Brutocao Cellars, Clos du Bois,
Golden Vineyards, McFadden Vineyard, Parducci Wine Cellars, Rays
Station and Testa Vineyards. As a parting gift, each couple will receive
a complete collection of the eight 2012 Coro wines produced by
these labels to take home and enjoy (a value of $320).
Cost per couple to attend the Release Party is $700, and includes
the complete collection of 2012 Coro wines, as well as free valet
parking, an opening reception with a selection of wines and passed
appetizers, a four-course winemaker dinner and a dessert course
paired with dessert wines.
The Coro wines have evolved over the last 12 years as fullbodied, fruit-forward products that stand out as complex and
different from standard varietal bottlings, said Dennis Patton,
Winemaker for Golden Vineyards. In moving the dinner to San
Francisco, we hope to introduce Coro wines to individuals who are
not familiar with the brand, and have them fall in love with our story
and wines, just as our loyal and long-time fan base has.

Coro Mendocino
Established in 2000, Coro is the only American example of
winemakers coming together to set standards for a class of wines to
represent a particular wine region. That region is Mendocino County,
a diverse area that encompasses a variety of climates and soils, and
boasts a mixture of multi-generational winemakers with deep Italian
roots alongside newcomers with extensive and varied backgrounds.
Coro means chorus in Italian, and it represents the crafting of the
Mendocino terroir into wines that sing on the palate.
Every Coro wine is a signature blend, individually crafted in
Mendocino County from 100 percent Mendocino County grapes, in
strict accordance with the Coro Mendocino bylaws. Each Coro wine
must lead with between 40-70 percent Zinfandel and may be blended
with up to nine named varietals, honoring the Old Italian field
blends of Mendocino. Every bottle is held to strict protocols, and
must be aged at least one year in the barrel and one year in the bottle,
followed by blind-tasting by the winemakers before it can be deemed
a Coro wine.
