Wineology

INTELLIGENCE FOR THE WINE CONSUMER

BY LEN NAPOLITANO

What are the proper conditions for storing wine?


If you typically consume your wine purchases within a
month or so, the storage environment is important, but not as
critical as it is if you lay away your wine for long-term storage
and aging. In either case, you should protect your investment
by applying some basic guidelines below:
Once wine is damaged by heat, it is destroyed forever.
Beyond the danger zone of 75F, wine begins to break down
chemically, damaging its integrity and composition. Even
storing wine bottles in environments where temperatures are
consistently above 70F should be avoided. Planning a
summer tour of wine country? Be sure to avoid leaving
precious wine purchases in the trunk of your car!
At the other extreme, the lowest temperature for your
storage area should be about 45F. If your wine is exposed to
extremely low temperaturesbelow 40Fit slows aging and
could produce crystal-like particles (potassium tartrates) that
accumulate on the cork or at the bottom of the bottle. A
storage room kept between 50F and 60F is ideal, allowing
wine to age at a normal rate and reach its prime with full
potential to inspire.
Humidity is not as critical as temperature, although it is
generally targeted at 70% to 75% for home wine cellars. If
humidity is consistently above 90%, and your wines are in
wooden crates, mold may eventually show up on the wood or

on the tops of any corks unprotected by a metallic capsule.


Storing bottles on their sides will keep wine in contact
with the cork and ensure that it remains moist and
expanded, keeping a tight closure against the glass. A dry
cork, caused by a bottle stored upright for too long, will
become brittle, shrink and allow too much air to get to the
wine.
If you become a serious wine collector, consider getting a
wine storage unit that looks and works similar to a normal
refrigerator. It often comes with sliding shelves, precision
control of temperature and humidity, a low light environment,
vibration-damping design and a clear glass door. Available in
a variety of sizes holding as few as 24 bottles or as many as
2000-plus, the largest are walk-in rooms complete with
lights, racks, shelves and refrigeration unit, delivered ready to
assemble.
In apartments, or houses without basements, a wine
storage unit is almost a necessity for keeping valuable wines.
However, if you have a house with a basement or
underground space with a fairly consistent temperature
throughout the year, you automatically have a low-cost,
convenient wine cellar. Always keep wines in a relatively dark
area, too, as sunlight and, to a lesser extent, fluorescent light
will harm delicate wines.

Nose, Legs, Body!

a quick and easy guide for the wine beginner.

Winegrowing Decisions

BY JOSH STEIN

Picking Decisions: Reds


Close your eyes and think back to the red wine that first hooked
you on wine. Think about its aromas and flavors, the magic on
contact, the depth and weight of its mid-palate, the length of time it
remained after swallowed. Was it a higher acid red, or was it tanninfilled? How noticeable was the oak, and how sweet or vibrant the
fruits? Believe it or not, that end picture is what we start with as our
target in mind as we go to pick and make wine from red grapes.
When we start to make picking decisions, there seem to be lots of
variables, like variety, Brix (sugar) levels, acid levels, maturity for
depth of flavor and color, upcoming weather, etc., but I start with the
processing in mind: how much color, intensity, tannin do we want in
the finished wine? Starting there makes the subsequent decisions less
overwhelming because they deliberately take options off the table.
Lower-alcohol, less-intensive wines call for lower Brix grapes handled
in an easier, old school fashion; higher-alcohol, fruit- or tanninbombs, in the parlance of our times, call for more extreme farming
and Brix levels and tend to involve extended pre- and postfermentation soakings. One style isnt better than the other,
especially as its more a spectrum than extremes, but there are
technical production differences.
Options abound: temperture control matters for reds as much as it
does for whites. Reds are generally done at higher temperatures than
whites, and as with any cooking, heat equals speed; for wine, that
means the potential to get too hot or go too fast, potentially killing
the yeast and leaving the fermentation stuck, which increases the
likelihood of other issues. About 85F is what we generally aim for
in reds, which will translate into about a week to ten days until
pressing and movement to barrels. Sometimes you want a little more
color release, so you let the temperature nudge into the low-90s;
sometimes you want to preserve more aroma, so you keep it low and
slow in the mid-70s, extending the fermentation a week or two or
more.

When you hear mention of house style, this is one of the ways in
which it comes about. Each wines fermentation may be its own little
ship at sea, if you will, but the winemaker is the admiral of them all,
pulling together a range of varieties through subtle tweaks. The
vessel used adds to this as larger tanks make it logistically easier in
some ways as there is less to get lost or done wrong than when
working with dozens of small tanks or bins, yet the potential for heat
issues can be greater because of the size of the columnar liquid
masses; its not easy to get 10,000 gallons up to temp, and its not easy
to stop it once its going, for example.
Equally, the method employed to cause agitation, punchdown or
pumpover, as well as the number of times done daily, has an impact.
Think of your personal style of letting a teabag steep (or not you
know who you are) and you have an analogous situation as agitation
causes more mixing of liquids and solids in the fermenting must.
Even when done, there are stylistic choices: post-fermentation
contact with the gross lees or separation into barrels, casks or tanks
before fermentation is even fully done?
Intensity, of course, leads to discussions of alcohol and sugar.
Residual sugar is actually something which is easy to control if the
winemaking is detail-oriented. Fermentation is never the same twice,
but each and every one can and must be tracked for temperature,
yeast health, amounts and kinds of nutrients, Brix and alcohol, and
other leading indicators of how well and how fast the conversion of
sugars to alcohols and malic to lactic acid, if applicable, is happening.
Arresting the fermentation, pulling the emergency break, if you will,
is generally done through shutting down the temperature and adding
enough sulfites to knock out the yeast. Its more of a coast than a
dead stop, however, with attention to the numbers and experience
being the producers of desired results. This is obviously aided or
held back by the starting Brix levels, as noted above.
I like to think of fine winemaking as very much akin to fine
cooking and baking, so its no wonder the two go hand in hand in
wine country. We strive through our winegrowing, like the chef who
grows and raises her own flora and flauna, to produce fantastic
ingredients for which we have recipes developed through
education, time in others cellars and experience. The next time you
sip a red, think about what decisions were or were not made, and
consider, too, what you would have done the same or differently had
the recipe been yours to tweak. Enjoy!

Castello di Amorosa
Pairing wine and cheese
goes back at least 4,000 years.
Both products are made from living substances
and improve with age. Both are a product of
fermentation, the process by which yeast cells
introduce chemical changes. And, both reflect
their terroir. Terroir refers to the combination of
soil, climate and region from which the product
comes. Traditionalists suggest that the wine and
cheese be paired according to region or strength,
thus preventing one from overpowering the other.
Part of the reason is the tannin levels. Red wines,
fermented with the skins, have a higher
concentration than white wine and this affects the
pairing characteristics. Also, the protein and fat in
cheese helps coat the palate reducing the
harshness of excess tannin.

with frescoes, defensive fortifications, ramparts, a drawbridge and a moat. Just like
old world castles, it also has a dungeon and torture chamber, secret passages,
courtyards, a church and stables.
There are so many fun ways to visit the castle and make a wine country memory.
Royal Food and Wine Pairing Guests will love the interactive and educational
program designed to enhance their enjoyment of Castellos wine in this lively two and
a half hour tour and tasting experience. Your hostess and sommelier, Mary Davidek
will lead an educational tour of the property followed by a luxurious tasting in the

Trinchero Napa Valley


Culmination of a Dream
Over a decade ago, Trinchero Napa Valley was founded by
the Trinchero family. The only brand bearing the Trinchero
family name, every wine is crafted with estate-grown fruit, handselected from the familys sustainably farmed vineyards
throughout Napa Valley. The brand is an homage to Mario and
Mary Trinchero, who built Sutter Home and created their legacy
in the Napa Valley community that continues today.
The winery has been going through several phases of
construction starting in 2007 with the 22,000 square foot stateof-the-art winery which was specifically designed to craft small
lots of Napa Valley wine.
In 2009 the Hospitality Center was completed which boasts
multiple event spaces, a bocce court and dramatic views of the
Napa Valley. It is a private space that is rich with historical
details that tell the story of the Trincheros journey for Italy to
New York City to the Napa Valley.

Family Member Creates the Vision for the Estate


The architectural style of the new estate winery evokes early
California, while gracefully fitting into its agrarian surroundings.
The interior harkens to the historic roots of the Trinchero family,
which are seamlessly interwoven with the history of the Napa
Valley as a winegrowing region. Bobby Torres, third-generation
family member and a graduate of U.C. Berkeley with an
architectural degree, shaped the creative vision of the estate.

Historic Wine Cave


Trinchero Napa Valley sits on some of the oldest wine caves in the entire
region. Completely refurbished in 2011, this historic space houses 170
barrels, as well as the familys private cellar which includes some of the
earliest vintages, among many other collectibles.

The only brand bearing the Trinchero family name,


every wine is crafted with estate-grown fruit,
hand-selected from the familys sustainably farmed
vineyards throughout Napa Valley.

Luxurious Setting to Experience


Trinchero Napa Valley Estate Wines
The stunning new tasting room, which opened to the public on June 26,
is more modern to reflect the new generations of the Trinchero Family. With
French oak floors, ceiling art by Michael Dute, world premier decorative
painter, tooled leather wall and custom made furniture this elegant space
will be the highlight of any visit to the Napa Valley. The inviting outdoor
space features terraces, a firepit and breathtaking views of the surrounding
Napa Valley.

Best Hospitality Team in Wine Country


The hospitality team is expertly trained and able to make the novice wine
drinker or an accomplished enophile feel at home and part of the family.
Along with standard wine tastings, the winery offers some incredible
experiences including A Taste of Terroir, a single-vineyard Cabernet
Sauvignon comparative tasting with cheese selections for $75 per person.

Fine Winemaking Since 1948


The Trinchero family has been making wine in the Napa Valley since 1948.
Mario Trinchero, a young Italian immigrant with an innovative spirit, left
New York City and headed west to California where he hoped to build a
better life for his wife Mary and their three children. Soon after arriving in
the Napa Valley, Mario and his brother purchased a winery that had been
abandoned during Prohibition and the rest is history.

Single Vineyard Estate Wines


Trinchero Napa Valley Estate wines are sourced from some of the best
vineyards in the Napa Valley and are a perfect addition to any wine
collection. Marios Vineyard produces Cabernet Sauvignon and Marys
Vineyard produces Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon (Vin Santo). The Haystack
Vineyard produces Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Petit Sirah; Clouds
Nest Vineyard produces Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Malbec;
Central Park West Vineyard produces Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet

Theres
Something

HUGE

in Downtown Calistoga

Huge Bear Wines


In Vino Ursus Veritas!
For a winery steeped in Northern California history
and the Bear Republic independence movement, Calistoga
makes perfect sense as the location for the Huge Bear
Wines recently opened tasting room. Even in 2016, the
petite city on the border of two valleys still happily
balances small-town life and frontier adventure. There
may no longer be gold in them there hills, but there
certainly is plenty of vinous gold and concomitant high
scores from whats growing there now. Founded in 2006,
Huge Bear finally found a home in the historic Calistoga
National Bank building on Valentines Day last year,
creating a perfect match for the handcrafted wines made
with a focus on small-production bottlings.

The Unbridled, Unstoppable Bear

Founded by the owners of Knights Bridge Winery, the Huge Bear namesake comes
from an early twentieth-century newspaper article chronicling a local bear who
repeatedly surprised an early 1900s Knights Valley Justice of the Peace, in whose
home amongst others he could often be found, raiding for food. The bear was never
actually caught, giving motivation to organizers of the Bear Flag Revolt and therefore
was acknowledged on the Bear Flag of the short-lived independent Republic of
California. Today, the winery channels this story of unbridled, unstoppable selfdirection into its releases, and gives back to the community. Currently, with each
bottle sold in the tasting room, Huge Bear will donate back $1 to support local and
national non-profits. After each tasting room purchase, customers can choose to
donate this $1 per bottle to either the Calistoga Boys & Girls Club, The Napa Vine
Trail or The Bear League.

Wine Country This Week >> WINE COUNTRY NEWS

Adorned by a very whimsical, intricate label adapted from


Lynd Wards classic Caldecott Medal-winning book The Biggest
Bear, Huge Bear Wines most certainly reward second or even
third looks and tastes. The winery currently produces a halfdozen small-lot bottlings of Napa and Sonoma County fruit
including current releases of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet
Franc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Ros and Sauvignon Blanc and
the red blend, Ursa Gigantes, which deftly showcases its
Knights Valley origins.
Given how recently the winery was founded and the
vineyard oversight taken over a decade at this point its
really quite impressive to already be seeing 90+ scores from
Connoisseurs Guide and Wine Enthusiast and lots of print
space dedicated to the wines in the Contra Costa Times,
Decanter, New York Magazine and The Tasting Panel. Visits to
the tasting room also allow access to older library bottlings of
many of these releases, too another reason to come on up to
Calistoga. New wineries are often afraid to showcase their
history; clearly, that is not the case in many ways with Huge
Bear. They dont hide from their history but revel in it!

Visit the Bear


The tasting room itself reflects this theme in its touches of
old and new, repurposing and re-using materials where
possible while also updating the interior where needed,
providing great light and access to try the wines and spend
some time with fun folks who put the emphasis on whats in
the bottles and their enjoyment, not flashy marketing spin.
Tasting and a stroll around town are definitely in order the
next time youre in the mood to sample some great wines
without pretense. Head to downtown Calistogas Huge Bear

goodness, and youll be glad you did enjoy!

In Sonoma County, like in much of the extended Bay Area, people pay attention to
food. People want to know where their food comes from and how it is farmed. And in
wine country, people want to know how it pairs with really good wine.
Kendall-Jackson knows this and has responded with a Farm-to-Table series of
dinners at its Russian River Valley estate winery.
The dinners, a lavish sit-down, family-style feast, occur on a monthly basis under
the stars.
Kendall-Jackson created the dinner series last fall as a response to the popularity of
its wine and seasonal food pairings and garden tours and tastings available at the
winery. (The winery aims to promote a diversity of flavor, provide education around
the wine and the food as well as on gardening.)
The first dinner in fall 2015 was such a success, Kendall-Jackson decided to offer
the event on a monthly basis during the warm season (May to October) under the
direction of its executive chef, Justin Wangler, and its culinary gardener, Tucker Taylor.
Guests come to the feasts from the Bay Area and around the world. Some come for
special events, like birthdays and anniversaries, others come for family get-togethers or
girls nights out. A Wisconsin couple got engaged during a recent dinner.
The winery will host two dinners in September, one as a commemoration of the
20th anniversary of Kendall-Jacksons Heirloom Tomato Festival. The September 23
dinner will include a silent auction in the estate gardens to benefit the nonprofit
No Kid Hungry. Each course will be prepared by a different celebrity chef, including
Top Chef Masters Douglas Keane and Sang Yoon and Williams-Sonoma Chef Partners
Joshua McFadden and Ryan Pollnow.

Truly Farm to Table


The Jackson family is deeply rooted in
agriculture, and they consider themselves
farmers first, winemakers second. Their
passion and understanding for cultivating
the land led them to acquire the best
vineyards throughout California. They take
their role as land stewards seriously and
promote sustainable farming methods and
clean energy throughout their business.
Their philosophy carries over to the
winerys gardens, where culinary inspiration
is born.
With this in mind, Wangler and Taylor
work together to create an enticing seasonal
menu for each farm-to-table dinner.
The dinners are sourced primarily from
Kendall-Jacksons own estate culinary
gardens. What the chefs cannot get from the
grounds, they source from local purveyors
of meat, fish, oysters and cheese.
The wines all come from KendallJacksons sustainable vineyards and are
selected to pair well with the food.

The Kendall-Jackson Heirloom Tomato


Festival Celebrates its 20th Year!

The KJ Experience
Upon arrival, dinner guests are greeted
with a welcome reception of wine, hors
doeuvres and live music. A dinner bell
rings to usher guests to a family-style long
table in the center of the estate garden.
As guests enjoy the gardens bounty, the
winemakers, culinary and gardening teams
mingle and discuss the meal and make
them feel right at home.
Each dinner represents the season not
just through food and wine, but through
the table dcor and ambiance.
Guests spend a total of three hours at the
estate winery, and leave filled with great
wine and food and knowledge of the origins
of that food and wine.
Each dinner is listed on the winerys
website, www.kj.com/farm-to-table, and
guests can sign up online. The cost is $125
per person or $100 for wine club members.
As the date for each dinner nears, the
winery posts the dinners menu online.
Tickets to the Heirloom Festival Charity
Dinner on September 23 are $225 per
person and can also be purchased online.

Judds Hill
Winery &
Microcrush
Winemaker Eric Lyman The Chameleon
Judds Hill winemaker Eric Lyman is funny, realistic and is proof
that anything is possible if you work hard enough. When Eric is not
perfecting select wines for Judds Hill Winery, he is micro-crushing and
custom-blending wines for over 100 small-lot private labels and commercial
wine brands.
Eric always knew he wanted to make wine for a living but took a circuitous route and
finally landed at Judds Hill. Born in Petaluma, California, Eric spent much of his youth in
Puerto Rico with his family before moving to Napa in the early 1980s. He left Napa and
joined the Navy for four years and then spent eighteen years in the pharmaceutical industry.
Then fate struck when the company Eric worked for was bought out. The thought of
moving to New Jersey or New Delhi with the new company was not appealing to Eric and
his wife Donna. Due to a clinical trial Eric was working on, he had two years to prepare
their lives for a drastic change in lifestyle and income. He decided to become a winemaker.
Eric would become a student and intern starting in his early 40s. He enrolled in the
winemaking program at the Napa Valley College in 2010 and interned for several harvests
before landing a full time job at Judds Hill.

Erics Winemaking Philosophy


Eric believes that one should respect varietal integrity, and dictate wine style in the
vineyard, not the cellar. As winemaker for the MicroCrush program and making wine for
Judds Hill, he works with a vast array of varietals. Currently, one of his favorite projects is
experimenting with wild native yeast. He fermented the Judds Hill 2015 Carneros Pinot
Noir and Chardonnay from the Reinke Vineyard this way and is very happy with the results.
This was a first at Judds Hill and he hopes to continue the practice this harvest.
There are 19 different grapes used in Ctes du Rhne wines. However, there are really
just three varieties that define the style. These varieties are Grenache, Syrah and Mourvdre
they hold the secret to Ctes du Rhne wine. Its a blend that provides inspiration to Eric
in his winemaking.
We asked Eric what were the best wines he has ever tasted. He replied, For white wine it
would be Trefethens dry Riesling. Its perfect as far as I am concerned. Standouts in recent
memory were a Bergstrom Pinot Noir from Oregon that almost made me cry and two
Cabernets produced by Lokoya.

Lymans take on Bio-Dynamic Farming


and the Natural Wine Movement
Bio-dynamic farming is a good concept and
very popular with the hipsters for sure. I
havent worked with enough biodynamic
farmed fruit to have an opinion on the quality
of the fruit versus traditional farming. As for
the natural wine movement, I think its good if
not taken too far. Sometimes natural wine
isnt very good because of restrictions
winemakers put on themselves. I think the
balance is to make wine as natural as
possible but not to the detriment of taste.

Open daily by appointment 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Theo Zaninovich, long-time shareholders with the Van Asperen family acquired the winery.
Over three generations, the Zaninovich family has been committed to earth-friendly
winegrowing. Sustainable viticulture is not only good for the environment; it results in higher
quality fruit, a prerequisite for crafting world-class wines.

portfolio which includes limited-production wines exclusive to the winery. Tastings can be

just cant be done. But, if you choose

Attendees will receive a copy of A Perfect Score, written by vintners Craig and Kathryn Hall,
detailing the art, business and soul of a 21st Century winery
HALL St. Helena will be celebrating the 2013
vintage of its flagship Cabernet Sauvignon at the

10. This will also serve as the book launch for A
Perfect Score, a new book by vintners Craig and
Kathryn Hall. Additionally, a unique Vertical Tasting
will be hosted by award-winning Director of
Winemaking, Steve Leveque, prior to the main event.
The Kathryn Hall Release Party is always special
because it is the first chance we have each year to
share the newest vintage of this great wine, says
Vintner Kathryn Hall. This year, however, the party
will be especially fun as we are also sharing our new
book in the setting that provides the backdrop for
our story.
Bringing together winemakers, wine-lovers, fans
and foodies alike, guests will be invited to enjoy a
sun-filled afternoon outdoors to sip on the newly
released 2013 Kathryn Hall Cabernet Sauvignon.
This wine was rated 98-100 points (in barrel), by
Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate.
As a bonus to this years event, all attendees will
receive a copy of A Perfect Score, which will be
available to the public, nationwide, on September
13. The book weaves a vibrant tale of Craig and Kathryns
experience in creating a modern winery that combines artistry in
all forms. Guests will have the chance to have their book and
bottles signed by the Halls.
Entertainment will be provided by country band, The
California Cowboys, and guests will be served western-style bites
by Feast Catering. Additionally, horse-drawn buggy rides will be
available throughout the event.
The Kathryn Hall Release Party takes place on The Great Lawn
at HALL St. Helena facing the Bergfeld Estate vineyard. Tickets
for the main event are $90 per person which includes a copy of
the book, A Perfect Score.
Tickets for the Vertical Tasting are $200 per person and

wine portfolio includes two 100 point scores given by critic
Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, for its 2013 Rainin Vineyard
Cabernet Sauvignon and its 2010 Exzellenz Cabernet Sauvignon.
HALL also earned the #2 spot in Wine Spectators Top 100 for
its 2008 Kathryn Hall Cabernet Sauvignon. Since the first vintage
in 2002, over 50 HALL wines have earned 95 point and above
scores. The HALL St. Helena winery was the first LEED Gold
Certified Winery in the State of California in 2009 and earned
another LEED Gold certification for its high tech production
facility and Tasting Room in 2014.

excursion to the hidden gems.

to relax, turn off the GPS and stop arm
wrestling over whos going to be the days
sober driver. These locals have got that
covered. You will spend the day with a Napa
Valley insider who will give you great service,
wine tips, a bit of history and peace of mind.

Dynamic Wine Tours by Beau are small


group tours of the Napa Valley no more
than 10 people and cost $125 per person.
They typically run about six hours from
pick-up to drop-off. These are semi-custom
tours designed with the entire group in
mind. When you book your reservation, the
professionals at Beau will ask you about your
individual wine tastes and the type of
wineries you would like to visit. They will
then design the tour based on the input of
each passenger in the group. Dynamic Wine
Tours are always different due to this process.
The day of your tour, you will be picked
up from either a hotel in Napa (they pick up

from nearly every hotel in the Valley) or at


the Vallejo Ferry Building. Visitors from San
Francisco take a ferry from the San Francisco
Ferry Building to the Vallejo ferry terminal
where they are met by a Dynamic Wine
Tours guide. Once aboard the luxurious
Mercedes Sprinter you will be handed a
complimentary glass of sparkling wine, settle
back in a plush seat and take the opportunity
to mingle with your tour mates for the day.
You will find that people visit Napa Valley
from all over the world. It can be an
opportunity to make new, life-long
international friendships.

The Wineries
While winding through the rolling hills of
vines and terrain unique to the Napa Valley,
you will stop at four distinctive wineries
where the group is greeted by a winery escort
at each destination. These insiders will give
you the scoop on their wines and process.
Many will take you on a tour of the barrel
rooms, caves or vineyards, too.
You will have ample time at each winery
to savor fine wines and make purchases to
bring a taste of Napa Valley home with you.

Wine Country This Week >> NAPA VALLEY

Tipping
Tipping your chauffer is encouraged. Tipping 15-20% per person
is the average for wine tours. Tips at tasting rooms are not expected
individual tasting fees absorb that. However, if you feel you received
terrific service, a bonus tip is always a nice gesture.

What to Wear
Be comfortable. Wear low, appropriate walking shoes for various
terrain and dress in layers.

DYNAMIC WINE TOURS BY BEAU

Many of the wines you will taste are only available exclusively at the
winery or through their wine club memberships. You will taste four
or five different wines at each stop on these tours. Definitely leave
room in your suitcase for taking home a few bottles of your favorites.

the Fig. While youre tasting wines, your chauffeur will be busy
setting up your feast of rustic sandwiches, seasonal side salads and
desserts. You are encouraged to uncork a bottle of wine you
purchased to share at lunch, however bottled water and sodas are
included. If you have a special dietary consideration, just let them

About Calistoga Wine Growers


Located at the top of the Napa Valley, Calistoga Wine Growers
(CWG) mission is to promote and protect the past, present and future
of grape growing and winemaking in the Calistoga AVA. The AVA was
approved in 2009 and became official in 2010, although it has always
been considered a unique wine grape growing location, with
viticultural and winery census data dating to 1880 listing Calistoga as
a distinct region separate from Napa. Rich volcanic bedrock and
sediment provide a geologic uniformity, while the AVAs diverse
topography ranges from steep mountains to valley floor making
Calistoga entirely unique to other Napa Valley AVAs. The Calistoga
AVA is cooled by air currents drawn in from the Russian River; these
currents are strong enough to support the sailplanes that were
headquartered for years at the Glider port in downtown Calistoga. The
hot air rises and mixes with cooling breezes from the Russian River in
the late afternoon until after sunset, cooling the valley floor to about
65 degrees. In addition, cooling breezes flow down the slopes of both
the Vaca and Mayacamas mountains. On fog-free nights, the cool air
moving downslope can bring the temperature down another 12-15
degrees. Experiencing Calistogas wines, people and businesses makes
a visit a great Napa Valley adventure. For more information, visit
www.calistogawinegrowers.com.

Ferrari-Carano Vineyards and Winery

Ferrari-Carano Winery
Beauty and Luxury in Dry Creek Valley
It takes effort to get there, but once you drive to the north end of Dry Creek
Road at the tip of Dry Creek Valley and enter the gates of Ferrari-Carano Winery,
you may never want to leave.
The wine is reason enough to linger. The Fum Blanc has generated a large
following as Ferrari-Caranos flagship wine. Its been around since the winerys first
vintage in 1985. But the Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon also
stand in high regard.
People come because they recognize the brands in the stores and markets and
want to see the origins, said Sil Coccia, manager of retail sales.
When visitors arrive, they walk through grand, manicured gardens up to the
Villa Fiore tasting room. There, they can sample a flight of wines, browse the shop
for keepsakes, and purchase a glass or a bottle of their favorite wine and enjoy it on
site.

Luxurious Tasting Options

PreVail Room
52

Ferrari-Carano offers a slate of tasting options for visitors. A standard tasting in


the Villa Fiore tasting room is $10 and includes five tastes of the winerys standards:
Fum Blanc, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Siena, as well as Pinot Noir and
dessert wines. The fee is waved with a $50 purchase.
On weekends, visitors can savor the picturesque view of Dry Creek Valley while
enjoying an array of award-winning wines as a tasting flight, by the glass or by the
bottle on its the outdoor terrace, Il Terrazzo.
For a more exclusive experience, the winery offers reserve, single-vineyard and
limited-release wines in its the Enoteca underground tasting room. For $25,
visitors can taste four limited-production vintages that are only available at the
winery.

Wine Country This Week >> SONOMA COUNTY

Jazz it Up Summer Concert Series


The winery began offering a chocolate and Cabernet Sauvignon tasting in May,
which has become very popular. Wine Country Chocolates in Glen Ellen provides
the flavor bar chocolate to pair with a flight of Ferrari-Carano cabs. This King of
Reds / Chocolate tasting is $35.
Private tastings for small groups are offered in the PreVail Room, a separate room
in the underground cellar. Private tastings are tailored to the visitors requests,
including white or red-only tastings, Pinot Noir flights and wine and food pairings.
Private tastings must be booked in advance.

They Make Wine Too?


Some people come just for the gardens, said Coccia. Rhonda Carano, the
winerys matriarch, has turned her passion project into a gardening afficionados
destination. Across five acres, the Ferrari-Carano gardens are teeming with color,
texture and whimsy.
Foot bridges and meandering paths wind visitors through the gardens containing
more than 2,000 species of trees and shrubs, water features and bronze statues,
including one of a Wild Boar, commissioned for the Caranos after a wild boar
devastated Rhondas garden at their Alexander Valley Home Ranch. If you rub its
snout, you will have good luck, a placard reads below the eight-foot piece.
The gardens are home to several Portuguese cork trees, which are some of the only
successful specimens of that type growing in the area.
Tulips are also a big draw here during the spring, and the winery offers a tulip
hotline for visitors to check when the tulips are in full bloom.

Ferrari-Caranos Seasons of the Vineyard Wine Shop


continues their free Jazz it Up Saturday live,
wine and jazz concert series from 4 to 6 p.m., no
reservations required. Guests may sip wines and
sample small bites while enjoying free, live jazz
performances featuring an amazing lineup of
musicians from this area and beyond.

Saturday, October 8 Susan Sutton Trio

Concerts are free and no reservations are required.
For more information and the calendar of events, call
(707) 431-2222 or visit www.seasonsofthevineyard.com.

Part of The Family


When visitors arrive at Ferrari-Carano, they are treated like members of the family,
which is the atmosphere the Caranos have created among their staff. As a family-run
winery, lines of communication are open and winery staff want visitors to feel
comfortable and taken care of, just like family.
The wine club, called Circle of Friends, is like being a member of three wine
clubs, in that it offers discounts at the Ferrari-Carano estate, its Seasons of the
Vineyard tasting room and boutique on the Healdsburg square, and at the Caranos
Mendocino County winery, Lazy Creek Vineyards, which specializes in Pinot Noir.
Each year, members are privy to two food and wine pairing events, a cruise and
other special events, like a trip to the San Francisco Giants game.
But first and foremost, Ferrari-Carano wants its visitors to come to the winery and
relax. When you come here, youre on wine time, said Coccia. Enjoy the gardens,
the views from Il Terrazzo and taste our fabulous wines. You can walk away with a
feeling of an overall memorable experience, that youll want to come back and bring
friends.

119th Valley of the Moon Vintage Festival Takes Place September 23-25
The Board of Directors for the Valley of the Moon Vintage
Festival has announced the entertainment for the Opening
Night Gala, which kicks off the weekend of festivities.
The Northern California based dance act
Notorious will take the stage on Friday,
September 23, at 6:00 p.m. in the Sonoma
State Historic Park barracks and entertain
attendees as they enjoy food and wine
from local restaurants and wineries.
This band has played for corporate
clients like Cisco, Yahoo and YouTube
and are also the back up band for 80s
giants like Vince Neil of Motley Cre,
Howard Jones, Curt Smith of Tears for
Fears and Tone Loc. The act has a
repertoire that spans the full spectrum of 80s
and beyond, from disco to classic jazz.
Notorious is known for their ability to connect and
interact with an audience. This band puts on an
electrifying show, as many of their fans will attest.
We thought it was important to bring in a really dynamic
dance band this year, said Maria Toimil, president of the
festival board. They really wowed the crowd at Wine Country
Weekend last year and were expecting the same at the Gala
Tickets for the event are on sale now at the festival website,
valleyofthemoonvintagefestival.com. The Gala is the only paid
admission day of the festival, with the rest of the weekend free
and open to the public.

Its summer in Sonoma and the fun keeps going throughout


the entire weekend on the plaza including more wine tasting,
grape stomp, fire fighter activity, Get Your Glow On
night parade, 5K/12K and Tiny Tot race, 80+ artists,
great food and bar, live music, plus family fun in
the Kid Zone on Saturday and Sunday. Music
for the weekend is free of charge and open to
the public and families are invited to come
down to the Sonoma Plaza and enjoy some
local music talent.
The Valley of the Moon Vintage Festival
is celebrating its 119th year and is the
second oldest festival in California,
following the Rose Parade. The festival is
always held on the last full weekend in
September. The festival is free and open to the
public; proceeds benefit many local Sonoma
Valley nonprofits including Native Sons of the Golden
West, Parlor #111, Sonoma Jr. Dragons, Sonoma Fire
Department, Volunteers in Policing, Sonoma Valley High School
Wrestling and Cross Country Team and Hanna Boys Center. For
