Quality Wines All Under $25 at Wine Garage, Calistoga
Hidden next to a dilapidated ’40s-era former filling station on Highway 29 in Calistoga lies the Wine Garage. A unique wine shop in Napa Valley that retails all wine in the store under $25. Sound crazy? Its true. And the proprietors Todd and Joy Miller, have hit on a niche in the Valley that had been very missed by the locals there. “There are a lot of winemakers here that can’t afford to drink the wine they make” says Miller. “That’s crazy, yes, but who can afford to drink a $65 bottle with dinner every night?” Many people miss the Wine Garage on the first try upvalley, but the search is well worth it. Miller stocks wine from all of California’s wine growing regions including an large assortment from Napa and Sonoma counties and other California appellations. When he first sought out buying the initial inventory, “I enlisted a local farmer buddy and his 15-foot box van and off we went all over California hunting down the deals. I tried to seek out the small producers who didn’t have distributors so I could pass the savings on to my customers.” And Miller did just that. His store is stocked with high-quality juice all under $25 and all are unique. Most labels in the shop are unrecognizable – but all pass the same test; everything passes over Miller’s lips before he makes a buy. “If I don’t love it, I don’t buy it, period. Sometimes I will taste over a hundred wines in one day, load up the truck and haul it up to Calistoga, unload at the store, and maybe I will crawl in bed by 3 a.m. Needless to say my buddy bowed out of the deal after their second trip. I initially recruited him on a ‘hey lets go wine tasting in Santa Barbara’ until he realized how much work it entailed. Poor guy, he had to be at the farm at 5 in the morning.” It is all worth it. Millers’ customers love him. He has a unique ability to hear a verbal description of a customer’s favorite wine and translate that into a recommendation for sometimes a third of the cost. “I have people all over the country that use me as their local wine shop. I ship right to their door – and the cost of the shipping is a drop in the bucket compared to what they save on the cost of the wine. Miller gets deals on Napa wine too. “I have winemakers from small wineries stop in every week saying ‘I have something that will fit into the store,’ if they only have 15 or 25 cases of an end-of-vintage wine – I am the perfect outlet for them.” So head up to the Wine Garage and check out the best deals in the Valley at 1020 Foothill Blvd (Hwy 29), Calistoga, CA 94515. For more information, call (707) 942-5332. You can also check out the website at winegarage.net.

INTELLIGENCE FOR THE WINE CONSUMER by Len Napolitano

Do you have any suggestions for giving wine as gifts?
There are two ways to choose wine as a gift when you know little or nothing about the recipient. You can decide on a certain style of wine based on his or her personality, or, as I like to do, you can choose a wine that carries some meaning with it. For example, if I am choosing a wine gift for someone who lives out of state I always choose a California wine. People living in other states don’t have the same vast selection of California wines that we are accustomed to. I especially like to choose a wine from a lesser-known producer that does not have nationwide distribution. Ask your local wine merchant for help on selecting a wine from a smaller California winery that makes wines of distinction. I’ll also give a gift of wine from wineries that I’ve personally visited. It’s nice being able to add a story to the gift-giving moment taken from my own experience at the winery. You can learn a lot on a short visit to a winery’s tasting room – how the winery originated, a fascinating biography of the owner – something unusual that adds interest to the gift. When you get down to selecting the particular style of wine for someone whose preference you’re unsure of, here are a few tips that may help: • Champagne: A safe bet in practically any situation, but avoid lowprice choices. • Pinot Noir: A very versatile wine that would be appreciated by either a devotee of red wines or white wines. • Cabernet Sauvignon: The perfect gift for a “meat and potatoes” guy. • Bordeaux: For the lover of tradition and history, or else for someone who enjoys gourmet cooking. Costs a little more, but that won’t go unnoticed. • Chianti Classico Reserva: Nothing says “amore” better than an Italian red wine from Tuscany.
Len Napolitano lives in San Luis Obispo County and is certified in wine by the Society of Wine Educators, Wine & Spirits Education Trust and Chicago Wine School and continually gains knowledge from his frequent contact with California winemakers.

WINERY FEATURE | WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK

CHATEAU ST. JEAN
by Michelle J. Baker
A couple of lightly worn, saddle-brown leather chairs look rather lonely outside the second floor offices at Chateau St. Jean in Kenwood. But by the time you get there, the winery staff will have moved those cushy and tempting armchairs in front of the roaring fireplace in the winery’s Reserve room, and you won’t be able to resist slipping over to the Chateau, sliding into those chairs and spending the afternoon sipping wine in the lap of luxury. In many ways winter is the best time to drop by Chateau St. Jean. Although the weather outside may be cold or rainy, inside the Visitor Center and across the way in the chateau it’s warm, dry and marvelously quiet (except for some soft music playing overhead). There are no crowds to fight through, plenty of attentive staff to make your visit relaxed and enjoyable, and lots of delicious wines to try and buy. In fact, with just a little luck you may even find some “end of the vintage” promotions that will make it easy to restock your wine cellar after all those holiday meals! Once you’ve made your way up the drive to the winery and parked, head to the Visitor Center through the formal gardens. Chateau

LOCALS TASTE FREE!
Visitor Center Tasting January and February, 2011
St. Jean is well-known for its sprawling European-style gardens, which are actually quite beautiful even in the winter. The deciduous trees have shed their leaves and rise starkly above the garden’s formal hedging. Dwarf Satsuma Mandarin Orange trees that line the pebble path are deep green and their fruit is just now turning from green to yellow and soon bright orange. If it’s not raining, you’ll want to wander around and see the gardens. Once you step inside the Visitor Center, you can choose a tasting to suit your preferences. For a small fee, visitors can upgrade their tasting to the Reserve tasting (which yes, includes use of leather chairs), featuring Chateau St. Jean’s Reserve and limited-release wines. This is where you’ll really see the skills of veteran winemaker Margo Van Staaveren, who just finished her 31st harvest at Chateau St. Jean. Van Staaveren’s wines have a signature style: elegant, polished and varietallycorrect. Her Reserve wines represent the most concentrated, distinctive and balanced wines

made at Chateau St. Jean. At 10:30 a.m., 1 and 3 p.m. daily the winery offers private tastings, an opportunity for you and your group of two to six people to taste with your own private guide in one of several exclusive rooms in the Chateau. More than six people in your group? No problem, the staff will set you up at a private table in the Visitor Center. Private tastings are available by appointment and available yearround. In the winter, you can often book your private tasting the same day.

Winter Events at the Chateau
First up at Chateau St. Jean in the new year is Pinot Gris release weekend January 15-16, 2011. This is just the second release of the Cold Creek Ranch Pinot Gris, a crisp and flinty wine that is the perfect match with Northern California’s featured winter seafood, local Dungeness crab. You’ll want to buy a case of the Pinot Gris to last you throughout the summer, and with just 250 cases available it’s best to secure some during the release weekend. The winery will have some small nibbles to enjoy throughout the weekend, and the charcuterie in the Visitor Center will be open if you want to purchase something more substantial to eat. Every weekend throughout the winter Chateau St. Jean offers special wine classes

WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK | WINERY FEATURE
where visitors have a chance to learn something new about wine. The rotating list of class topics includes decanting and serving older wines (recently featuring a 1985 Cabernet Sauvignon); a comparative tasting of single vineyard and reserve Chardonnays; and a tasting of the components of Cinq Cepages, the winery’s revered Bordeaux-style blend. Wine classes are held on Saturdays and Sundays at 11 a.m. Simply call ahead to reserve your seats for one of these fun and informative classes. Also coming up on Friday, February 18, 2011 is Chateau St. Jean’s famous (and infamous) Valentine’s Day Club Dinner. In addition to fabulous food and wine, attendees are also treated to a memorable night of entertainment. Of course, you’ll want to join Club St. Jean first. The club is free to join, and every year you’ll receive four shipments of three wines, including reserve and limited-release wines, all at a 20% discount. Hurry up to make reservations for the Valentine’s Day Dinner, as seating is extremely limited! Take advantage of winter at Chateau St. Jean, located at 8555 Sonoma Highway in Kenwood. When there is a light dusting of fog dancing on the evergreenstudded Sonoma hills, it’s your cue to get down to Chateau St. Jean and make your rightful claim to the seats by the fire. The Visitor Center is open from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. daily. To make event reservations or schedule a private tasting or wine class, call (707) 833-4134. Chateau St. Jean is located at 8555 Sonoma Highway, Kenwood. Phone (707) 8334134 for further information, or go to chateaustjean.com.

Exploring the Joys of Russian River Wine Road
by Charles Neave
From “A” (the Alderbrook and Armida Wineries) to “Z” (Zinfandel, one of the grape varietals that made the region famous) the Russian River in Sonoma Country is one of the treasured segments of this part of California. Known to some, and close kept by those who do, it is cache of fine wine and passionate winemakers. It is something you want to keep secret, but that you also cannot resist sharing. In between there is a whole roster of names, of wineries both large, such as FerrariCarano, Kendall-Jackson Healdsburg (and the esteemed Kendall-Jackson Wine Center near Santa Rosa), Rodney Strong Vineyards, and the historic and fascinating Hop Kiln Winery, which, among so many, is a personal favorite. In the area (the town of Healdsburg, for the most part, and the surrounding area) there is a long list of famous gourmet restaurants, intimate cafés, bakeries and plenty of gourmet delis. You can tour a long list of country back roads through pastoral vineyards and rural farms, take an exhilarating hot air balloon ride (be prepared for an early departure, though) take a lingering canoe ride down the Russian River, bike, play a round or two of golf, enjoy a picnic, beachcomb the stunning Pacific

Ocean Sonoma county coast, hike through the majestic, towering redwood forests, shop art galleries, boutiques and jewelry stores, indulge in a relaxing spa and maybe a couple of games of tennis. For that matter an outing as simple as a walk around town – or into town – is very fulfilling. Even for veteran wine travelers already well acquainted with the Wine Country of Northern California, the Russian River Cali-

fornia Wine Road is likely to be uncharted territory that is sure to give visitors a fresh sense of discovery or rediscovery. Along the way are some of California’s oldest wineries, run by vintners whose commitment to tending the vines and producing world-class wines, true to the appellation, runs back generations. The Wine Road organization was formed and over the intervening years has certainly become one of the greatest champions of this hallowed and respected area. Founded more than three decades ago, the Wine Road is an association of wineries and lodgings in the Alexander, Dry Creek, and Russian River Valleys of Northern Sonoma County. From its modest beginning as an organization of nine wineries, it has grown into a spirited constellation of more than 150 wineries and 50 lodgings. It’s not actually a “road” in the sense of a single, continuous stretch of paved highway, but more of a treasure map to the many jewels nestled among the hills and valleys of a region where fresh air, fine wine and exquisite cuisine await those who traverse it. This lively and committed organization has created a myriad of programs, events and services certain to enhance any visitor’s experience of the region, among them three major events: “Winter Wineland,” “Barrel Tasting

and “A Wine & Food Affair” (schedules and more information can be found at www.wineroad.com). Coming January 15 and 16 is the 19th Annual Winter Wineland, which is a celebration of wine and the arts. It is a unique and great opportunity to meet winemakers, taste limited production wines, new releases or library wines. Some wineries will offer food pairings and others will have tours. Each participating winery will either host an artist for the weekend, so you will enjoy their fine-art, or the winery will have an educational display to help you learn about vineyard management or winemaking The price of the ticket will include wine tasting at all of the participating wineries for the weekend. The wonder of it all is not just in the great natural beauty, which is there in abundance over all, nor even in the vast variety in varietals. Though some do dominate there is an abundance of very enjoyable choices. And there is no better place to enjoy them in the wineries, restaurants and other welcoming spots along this beautiful stretch of “road.” Download the detailed program to see exactly what each winery will offer for the weekend … then plan your tasting adventure. The very reasonable ticket price will include wine tasting at all of the participating wineries for the weekend and the event does not take place at one location. You travel from winery to winery, visiting the ones you

are interested in exploring. Advance online ticket prices are: $45 weekend, $35 Sunday only, $5 for designated drivers. At the door prices will be $55 weekend, $45 Sunday only, $5 for designated drivers. A complimentary Wine Road map is the key to exploring the glories of the area and is also available at www.wineroad.com. The area is nothing if not rich in history. The Russian River takes its name from the Russian fur trappers who established a trading colony in the early nineteenth century, and following on their heels were the French and Italian immigrants who brought their own centuries-old traditions of winemaking to the area. Wine has been made in Sonoma County for over 130 years. Even during the Prohibition years (from 1920 until its final and joyously welcome repeal in 1933) many wineries continued to make wine for “medicinal” land “sacramental” purposes. Quotation marks are very intentional. Today, some of the many stars of the regions include Christopher Creek Winery, Balletto Vineyards, the stunning deLorimier Winery, Fritz Underground Winery (the name says it all), Hauck Cellars , the very, very unique Martin Ray Winery, the architecture and wine of Matrix Winery, Mazzocco Sonoma, Moshing Vineyards, plus Sausal Winery and the revered Since Vineyard & Winery.

Viansa Winery
by Ronda Giangreco
Here’s a great idea for the New Year. How about giving your family a trip to Italy? The fabulous wines, the unbelievable food, the scenery and of course the famous hospitality of the Italians are all sure to create an unforgettable memory. If it wasn’t for that darned little recession. No worries! There is a wonderful place right at the entrance to the Sonoma Valley that will give your friends and family almost the exact experience. Viansa Winery sits majestically upon a hilltop, providing a breathtaking view of vineyards, olive groves and wetlands. With just a wisp of imagination, it is easy to believe that you are actually at a villa in Tuscany. And that is precisely what the folks at Viansa want to happen. “We would like everyone to come up and experience a taste of Italy. We really feel like we have a unique setting here, just like a piazza in Italy. We think it is the perfect spot to enjoy wonderful wines, Italian delicacies and the warmth and joy of our employees.” says Lloyd Davis, one of Viansa’s new owners. As in Italy, here at Viansa it is all about the marriage between great food and great wine. Viansa’s wide array of Italian wines offers visitors a chance to enjoy some of the old world varietals that have made the country famous. As the premier producer of Italian wines in the United States, Viansa offers such rich and luscious award winning wines such as its Sangiovese, Primitivo, Pinot Grigio and its proprietary blend, Ossidiana, just to name a few. You really would have to travel all the way to Tuscany in order to find so many Italian wines in one place. But great wines are only half of the equation. Viansa is a treasure trove of Italian goodies. They make literally hundreds of food products here to pair with their wines, using only the freshest local ingredients. Pasta sauces, artisan cheeses, and estate grown olive oil are just a few of the offerings to make the foodies in your life swoon. And the gorgeous Italian pottery makes a beautiful compliment to any table decor. They also stock a wide array of cookbooks, wine accessories and glassware. Stumped with all the choices? They even have gift cards! Viansa also offers lunch fare made fresh each day. Sandwiches, salads and from May through October, wood-fired pizzas are just the ticket when paired with a glass of Sangiovese or Primitivo while gazing over the magnificent wetlands below. While feasting, you are sure to catch a glimpse of one of the over 600 species of birds that have been sighted on Viansa’s restored wetlands. Viansa’s marketplace hours are from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., seven days a week. The modest cost of just $5 per person for a tasting ensures that you can play host and still stay on with your New Year’s resolution to be budget conscious. Private tastings for groups of ten or more are also available and can provide you with a great way to entertain those hoards of family visitors this year. For more information, call (707) 935-4726 Finally, for that very special lover of all that is Italy, Viansa offers a wonderful plan that will keep a taste of Italy in their life all year long. A membership in Viansa’s famous Tuscan Wine Club offers several ways to please even the most discriminating palate. For example, their “Every Other Month Mixed Cucina” package will provide you with two bottles of their red wines, two white wine, plus four delicious and fun items for their pantry, ranging from condiments and sauces to chocolates and confections. Each shipment ranges between $93 and $133, plus tax and shipping. So leave your passports at home, grab your friends and relatives and head to Sonoma’s version of Tuscany. If you want to make a new pisano or just please your existing ones, there’s no better way than a visit to Viansa Winery.

Winemaker Profile: Martin Ray Winery

BILL BATCHELOR
by Brendan Conroy
Bill Batchelor has spent many years creating a solid reputation for himself as a winemaker. After refining his skills as a vintner over a period of nearly fifteen years with some well known wineries including Blackstone and Preston, Batchelor joined the Martin Ray winemaking team as the assistant winemaker. After eight years in their service, the 2010 harvest will be his debut as chief winemaker of Martin Ray. In order to create a more refined, elegant wine, Batchelor’s overall wine philosophy is to leave them untouched as much as possible and to allow the natural process to reach its fullest potential. Using some native yeast during the fermentation process, the wine itself is embodied with intricate, bold fruit that clearly represents the terroir from which it was derived. According to Batchelor, using whole cluster fermentation (in which both the grapes and the stems remain intact), the wine gravitates towards having a hearty “woody tannin structure” that sets it apart from other wines in the area. The winery itself produces roughly 250,000 cases annually and is split between two labels. The “Angeline” label is distributed across the United States and accounts for the bulk of Martin Ray’s production with each being created from a mix of diverse vineyards. The Martin Ray label however is a much smaller production of the two which focuses on being mostly single vineyard based. With its one million gallon production facility located at the winery itself, it is no wonder that action happens year round at Martin Ray. The near constant blending of different vineyards for the Angeline wines in addition to personifying the Martin Ray single vineyard wines keeps Batchelor and all of his staff working at maximum productivity year round. The wine itself is outstanding. The Angeline 2009 Sauvignon Blanc is crisp, citrusy, with very balanced acidity which does not overwhelm the palate. It would be an ideal food pairing for scallops with a lemonbutter sauce or even sushi. Complement it with a bottle of the Martin Ray ’09 Chardonnay and one will have a truly magical experience. Receiving a Gold Medal at the Sonoma County Harvest Fair and a score of 87 points in Wine Spectator’s “Best of the Year” edition, this beautiful, exquisitely creamy wine is one the most sophisticated and polished Chardonnays in the Russian River Valley with notes of vanilla, nectarine and a dash of lightly buttered popcorn on the finish. Deciding upon a preference between these two exceptional wines is no easy feat. … If one wants to be the center of attention at a party, pick up one of their one-liter jug wines, Red. For a very reasonable price of $14.99, one can enjoy a blend of various grapes which changes yearly. The current vintage is the fourth vintage of this practice and is a field blend of Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Zinfandel and Petite Sirah. Imparted with a floral nose and forward aspects of plum and white pepper, this wine will make an entire room brighten with delight. The tasting room is open daily from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The winery and tasting room are located at 2191 Laguna Road, west of the city of Santa Rosa.

Welcome to
by Charles Neave

SUISUN VALLEY
the big names, as a matter of fact – own vineyard property on this side of the mountain and the harvest of these grapes go into some very recognizable (and often quite pricey) bottlings. The obvious thing is that the spacious and immaculate rooms and suites in both the Hilton Garden Inn and the Holiday Inn Express make a perfect base to explore this region. And if you do decide to visit the Napa Valley, that is easy. It is, after all only three-quarters of an hour away, going either down to Jameson Canyon and over, or through Wooden Valley and left onto Monticello Road. They are what you might call a “two turn drive”. That is all there is to it. So an afternoon trip from your hotel room is an easy expedition. Back at your hotel, you can uncork one of your new finds (and trust us, even if you live here they are still likely to be welcome discoveries), put some cheese and fruit (the area is world famous for fruit orchards as well as for grapes) on a plate, put your feet up and relax before walking or making the short drive to dinner. It is the best of both worlds: access to Old World wineries, farm stands, a bistro here, a restaurant there, and freeway onramps so close you can see them from the lobby. What could be better – and both more efficient - than that? And as a bonus you have, in your backyard, all the tools you need to relax and enjoy this special part of Wine Country. • Hilton Garden Inn: 2200 Gateway Court, Fairfield, California 94533; (707) 426-6900 • Holiday Inn Express: 316 Pittman Road, Fairfield, California 94534, (707) 864-3797

Fairfield Hotels – Close to Wineries, Shopping, Restaurants & More
Ask any realt estate agent and it’s likely that one of the first things you will hear is “location, location, location.” When you visit the wine country of Northern California the same admonition can often be just as important and just as appropriate. For any number of reasons, staying in a small inn surrounded by vines, or an auberge on a distant knoll, may not be the best choice. Perhaps you’re headed to another city on business or for a family reunion or anniversary and your time is limited. Possibly you have limited time between business meetings or other commitments and access to an interstate highway or business and governmental centers is crucial. But with that said, it does not mean that you cannot enjoy a visit or two to a vineyard tasting room, lunch or dinner at a local restaurant that offers local bounty as well as a list good local wines. You should be able to take at least a part of a busy day and see some of the finest landscape the area has to offer. And to that there is, in fact, a most practical answer: Hilton Garden Inn and the Holiday Inn Express. Both are handsome, self-contained hostelries with quick and easy access to Interstate 80. They are both near a long list of dining possibilities, from burgers and pasta to sushi and steaks, plus plenty of shopping. Parking is easy and if it is military affairs that are the cause of your trip, Travis Air Force Base is just up the road a couple of miles. If it is state business or a trip to Old Town, the capital, Sacramento, is less than an hour away. For a touch of whimsy the Jelly Belly Factory is down the road, and the newly renovated waterfront city of Suisun is not much further. But what about the wine? Trust us, there is plenty of it, beginning with tasting rooms and vineyards that are, at most, 20 minutes from either of these two hotels. Suisun Valley, Wooden Valley, they are steeped in history and have the advantage over their counterparts in the much busier Napa Valley in that they are relaxed, the roads and tasting rooms are much less crowded, and the wine is both first-rate and reasonably priced. And remember: many Napa wineries – some of

NAPA VALLEY | WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK

Rutherford Wineries Create the Largest River Restoration Project in the History of the Wine Industry
“This must be the most valuable dirt in America,” says Gretchen Hayes, project coordinator. She is looking at a mountain of soil removed from steeply eroding river banks in order to provide fish habitat and restore the natural flow of the Napa River through the Rutherford American Viticultural Area. “It is truly a mountain of Rutherford Dust, and the greatest wines in America are grown in this coveted red soil!” For the past seven years, a river restoration team headed by Davie Pina, John Williams and Andy Beckstoffer of the Rutherford Dust Society has worked with a wide range of stakeholders to develop a long-range sustainability program for the Napa River as it passes through the Rutherford AVA, between Zinfandel Lane and the Oakville Cross Road, south of St. Helena. Twenty-three local growers have volunteered to sacrifice nearly 20 acres of top-quality vineyards in the heart of Napa Valley’s finest AVA to restore the river to a more natural condition. “Our mission is to work collaboratively with neighbors and agencies to stabilize river banks, reduce the impacts of flooding, protect and enhance fish and wildlife habitat, reduce Pierce’s disease pressure on vineyards and provide ongoing education about the river and its watershed,” says Beckstoffer of the project. “Our goal is a living river.” Since the early 1970s, the river has cut down as much as 15 feet, creating a simplified channel with degraded fish habitat and severely eroding banks, depleting the riparian vegetation buffer and placing property at risk. Despite these conditions, the Rutherford Reach remains the most critical spawning habitat for Chinook salmon in the Napa River. The salmon are re-establishing a population in the watershed after having been absent for nearly a century. “This is a pioneering effort, to my knowledge the most ambitious river restoration project to date proposed on private property in California,” says Hayes. “The Rutherford Reach Restoration Project is enhancing fourand-a-half miles of the Napa River from the perspective of both protecting private property and the river's ecological value.” In the first two seasons of construction, landowners have re-dedicated $2.1 million dollars’ worth of prime vineyard land to the river corridor, sacrificing $1.6 million in grape production over the next 20 years. “The landowners of the Rutherford Reach are investing in the future,” says Hayes, “preserving the historic legacy of Rutherford grapes and wildlife for future generations.” It is truly a private-public partnership that works to the benefit of property and the public trust. Public funding critical to advancing this initiative has been provided by the California Department of Fish and Game, the Coastal Conservancy, the State Water Board, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, and the California Department of Parks and Recreation Salmonid Habitat Conservation Fund. Napa County matches all funds raised on behalf of the project and is overseeing construction, which began in 2009 and is being conducted in phases. In 2009, the David Guggenhime Family and the Quintessa Estate were the first properties to undergo restoration construction. This past summer, The Ranch Winery / Sutter Home, Frog’s Leap, Caymus and Carpy-Conolly provided for the wholesale setback of agricultural berms into valuable vineyard land to widen the riparian corridor, create refuge for young salmon and steelhead, and attenuate flooding. In 2011, Emmolo, Bettinelli/Mee, Round Pond, Honig, and Sequoia Grove will join their neighbors in the river restoration effort, completing the first half of the project between Zinfandel Lane and the Rutherford Cross Road, and at Sequoia Grove vineyards. Design plans are being advanced for the remainder of the Project reach, with an implementation completion goal of 2014. Landowners along the Rutherford Reach are dedicated to restoring the river for future generations and are supporting Project maintenance through a joint venture with Napa County. The Rutherford Dust Society’s River Restoration Project has garnered Congressional

Prominent Photographer’s Compelling New Exhibit at Mumm Napa Valley
Finding grace in every step that we take is the theme of Yesterday and Today, Mumm Napa Valley Winery’s powerful new fine art photography exhibit, which celebrates the changing faces of people over time, as captured by acclaimed portrait photographer Art Rogers. This exhibit will be on view through March 13 in the winery’s popular Fine Art Photography Gallery. With its exhibits, Mumm Napa Valley has established a strong reputation over the years for its fine art photography. Comprised of more than 100 black-and-white, silver gelatin photographs, the exhibit honors the passage of time through the changing images of individuals over the course of 30 years in the same location. The earliest photograph was taken in 1975, the most recent in 2010. The photographs highlight the poignancy and profound beauty evident in the passing of generations. At Rogers’ suggestion, the exhibit emphasizes time as being measured in change much more than in passing years. One series for example showcases a couple both on their wedding day and after their first year of marriage, while another captures the changes in siblings as they travel from childhood to adulthood. “The idea behind these photographs is to see them and feel good about moving forward,” says Rogers. “I want to elevate the passage of TU S LANE time to a thing ofBBelegance and honor.” Calistoga N L Rogers, whose collected works have appeared in Life magazine and LINCO hung in both the International Center of Photography in New York as well as the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, has spent more than 40 years as a professional photographer. Yesterday and Today was born from a passion for photographing neighbors, friends and family in the small town of Point Reyes where Rogers has lived since 1971. “It’s thrilling to see a baby becoming a child and that child a young man or woman,” Rogers explains. “Some people see growing older as degeneration, I see regeneration.” Yesterday and Today is one of two fine art photography exhibits featured at Mumm Napa Valley Winery. A private collection of original signed Ansel Adams photographs, currently on loan from the Ansel Adams family, also hangs in the winery’s Private Collection Gallery year-round. Visitors may sample sparkling wine while soaking in the beauty of the art or the winery’s surrounding landscape – scenic vineyards which are best enjoyed from a table on winery’s tasting patio. Mumm Napa Valley is one of California’s premier sparkling wine producers. The winery and visitors’ center is open daily for tours, tastings and private events. Visitors’ center hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mumm Napa Valley Winery is located at 8445 Silverado Trail, Rutherford. For additional information on the exhibits or the winery, call (707) 967-7700 or go to the website at www.mummnapa.com. For additional information on the Yesterday and Today photographs, email artrogers@mindspring.com.

Tasting Room of the Week:

Baldacci Family Vineyards
by Charles Neave
Tucked, almost literally, into a hillside along the west side of the Silverado Trail, near the Yountville Crossroad, sits one of the small gems you are sometimes lucky enough to come across as you explore the Napa Valley. It is Baldacci Family Vineyards, the fruition of a dream that founders Tom and Brenda Baldacci had for years, one that began to come together with the purchase of this 17-acre property in the Stags Leap district at the end of the last Millennium, in 1997. From the beginning, the winery seamlessly combined a passion for winemaking with the tradition of a close-knit family. “Combining these two vital facets of life into one ensures that every drop in every bottle produced is a true labor of love.” They believed that the enjoyment of great winemaking and the opportunity to build a lasting legacy for their family was an attainable goal. Part of their commitment is to the grape, and to the land. All of the fruit is handled as little as possible, allowing their unique attributes to come through in the finished wine and “making the special qualities of every glass a part of the land, a part of the tradition and a part of the family.” Part of what might be called the extended family is winemaker Rolando Herrera. With two decades of experience making wine in the Stags Leap district, he is a talented member of the team, the one who oversees the entire winemaking process from start to finish. “When I started talking to the Baldacci’s about coming to work for them, I was very excited because I wanted to get back to the vineyards of Stags Leap district,” he says. The vineyards that surround the tasting room form the backbone of the winery’s estate Cabernet Sauvignon program that carefully nurtures vine growth. This means that the grapes reach their maximum potential to create exceptional tannic structure and concentrated flavors, essential elements of their wine. But most of all it is one family’s true labor of love. Of all of the wines made at Baldacci, one that most signifies the commitment to both family and quality is the bottling labeled IV Sons Cabernet Sauvignon. For one thing it recognizes the four sons of Thomas and Brenda. Then there are the four elements present. First and second is that it is always constructed of a majority of Cabernet Sauvignon and a small amount of Cabernet Franc. Third and fourth is the fact that the wine is aged in a combination of French and American oak barrels. The result is wine filled with cherry, fig and black

cherry aromas; a supple wine for both special occasions and everyday drinking at a reasonable price. Other wines wearing the Baldacci label are two Pinot Noirs (one from the Carneros, the other from Russian River fruit) and from Stags Leap vineyards Brenda’s Vineyard Cab and a Black Label Cabernet Sauvignon. Their limited-production Ruppert Cabernet comes from just up the road, where the fruit for the Allwin Syrah is picked, and there is a new Diamond Mountain Cab on the list as well. As part of their Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and (very dry) Gewürztraminer project, the Baldacci’s also have 22 acres of vines in the Carneros District. To sample the Baldacci wines – maybe even take a look into the 4,000 square feet of temperature- and humidity-controlled caves if you call ahead – visit their tasting room on the Silverado Trail. It is a comfortable, well-appointed part of a lovingly restored 1923 farm house. With subtle green wainscoting below and white walls above, two granite-topped bars, a slate floor, and doors that open onto the terrace and the walkway to the caves, this “wine country casual” space is the ideal place to begin a leisurely journey through the wines of this small winery dedicated to family, friends and quality, all at a refreshingly unhurried pace. The Baldacci Family Vineyards tasting room is open daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. by appointment. It is located at 6236 Silverado Trail about 15 minutes from Napa and five minutes from the charming town of Yountville. For more information, visit the website at www.baldaccivineyards.com or call them at (707) 944-9261.

SONOMA COUNTY | WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK

Chef Charlie Palmer’s Pigs & Pinot Epicurean Benefit
Featuring culinary stars and wine experts from across the country
On Friday and Saturday, March 18 and 19, Chef Charlie Palmer will once again bring together culinary and wine elites from around the country to participate in the sixth annual Pigs & Pinot weekend (www.pigsandpinot.com). Held at the award-winning Hotel Healdsburg, located in tranquil Healdsburg where three of California’s most important wine producing regions unite – Dry Creek, Russian River and Alexander Valley – this celebration has become a tradition amongst pork and wine enthusiasts who are eager to experience the creations of more than 60 wineries and 10 chefs who showcase their talents each year. The 2011 Pigs & Pinot event will feature an exciting line-up of food and wine seminars, tastings and cook-offs, and all proceeds will benefit Share Our Strength® and local Healdsburg education, including The Healdsburg Education Foundation, St. John School and The Healdsburg School. And, to continue the support of the local community, Chef Palmer is once again raising two suckling pigs which he has personally selected and is nurturing in the gardens of Quivira Vineyards, a Biodynamic® vineyard, closely cared for by Quivira’s head gardener Andrew Beedy. The pigs are fed Dry Creek Kitchen vegetable trimmings as well as spent grain and barley from nearby Bear Republic Brewing Company and finished in the European style, with an acorn diet to produce a richer marbling and slightly sweet fat. The meat will be served as part of the chef’s pairing course during the Pigs & Pinot gala dinner.

Saturday, March 20
• Tournament of the Pig – 10:30am-12:30pm Charlie Palmer and three of his guest chefs will be divided into two talent-packed teams. These teams will be given three different pork products which they will use to craft three creative dishes, along with ingredients they can find at Dry Creek Kitchen. The winning team will be determined by a panel of prestigious porkloving judges. Of course the audience will be supplied with tastings too. • Ultimate Pinot Smack Down – 1-3pm Time for wine experts to steal the show and demonstrate their Pinot persuasion skills. Join Master Sommeliers Keith Goldston, Fred Dame, Drew Hendricks, and Aureole Las Vegas Wine Director William Sherer for this exciting march-madness inspired wine seminar. Each Master Sommelier enters the room with his personal selection of four Pinot Noirs from around the world and proceeds to “sell” his favorites in this lively head-to-head pitch contest including blind tastings where the audience chooses the winner. • Pigs & Pinot Gala – 7pm Saturday evening’s elegant Pigs & Pinot Gala features a delectable five-course dinner at Hotel Healdsburg’s Dry Creek Kitchen. As a collaborative offering, each course features a signature creation from Palmer and his guest chefs including “Top Chef” brothers Michael and Bryan Voltaggio and Nancy Oakes of Boulevard and Prospect. Every course will be paired with two limited-production Pinot Noirs from highly acclaimed wineries including, Domaine Parent, Merry Edwards, Rochioli and Woodenhead. Pigs & Pinot Late Night is a late evening celebration following the gala with after-dinner drinks and dessert in the Hotel Healdsburg lobby. All Pigs & Pinot celebrants are welcome to attend. Tickets to this event quickly sell out. For more information, tickets or details about package prices with accomodations, visit www.PigsandPinot.com.

THE 2010 PIGS & PINOT WEEKEND LINE-UP Friday, March 19
• Taste of Pigs & Pinot – 12pm To kick off the weekend fun, guests are invited to experience 60 highly-acclaimed Pinot Noir wines, all contenders in the Pinot Cup competition. These hand-picked Pinot Noirs, hailing from California and beyond, face a distinguished judging panel in a blind tasting. This year’s panel is made up of top wine media personalities such as Dan Berger, national wine columnist and Leslie Sbrocco, epicurean author and television host. The winner and runner up of the prestigious Pinot Cup will be revealed at the end of the night. Wine tastings are served alongside a selection of pork dishes created by Chef Palmer and Dry Creek Kitchen Chef de Cuisine Dustin Valette, guest chefs, and many local Healdsburg restaurants including Cyrus, Zin, Barndiva and Healdsburg Charcuterie & Café.

ARMIDA WINERY
by Sue Straight, The Wine Wench
Heaven and Hell, PoiZin (Armida’s signature Zinfandel) and Antidote (Armida’s Pinot Grigio), big fun and great wines at reasonable prices are what come to mind when I think about Armida Winery. The owners and staff describe it as “wines to remember in a place you’ll never forget…” I must agree – I’ve been a fan for years. Armida Winery is definitely an unforgettable place! If you’ve ever come to Armida Winery for Dry Creek Valley’s Passport event, the Heaven and Hell theme that they decorate the cellar with is always a topic of conversation, long after the event is over. Located not far from Healdsburg on Westside Road, Armida Winery sits atop a vineyard-striped knoll. Wind your way up the driveway and you are in for a real treat! To start with, the views from the oak-shaded deck/picnic area and bocce court are unforgettable – the Russian River Valley unfolds before your eyes in a glorious patchwork of vineyards, trees and hills. The winery itself is a geodesic dome, the practical reason, according to designer Buckminster Fuller, would be that “The sphere uses the ‘doing more with less’ principle in that it encloses the largest volume of interior space with the least amount of surface area, thus saving on materials and cost.” The Armida reason is “…’cause it looks cool.” Brothers Bruce and Steve Cousins purchased controlling interest from Steve Frugoli in 1994 and have brought a whole new meaning to the term “family owned winery.” These guys love what they do and it shows – the whole atmosphere at Armida Winery is one of delicious fun, with a bit of mischief thrown in. The wines are seriously good, but the folks at Armida Winery don’t take themselves too seriously. There’s not an ounce of pretension here, folks. The tasting room is light, bright and airy feeling, with an octagonal shaped wooden bar that is staffed by friendly and knowledgeable servers. PoiZin themed gifts are placed everywhere in the artfully merchandised tasting room – casket-shaped cases and numerous displays offer a wide array of PoiZin T-shirts, sweatshirts, hats and other non-wine goodies. There are plenty of Antidote gifts and wine available as well. A fullsized wooden Indian gazes solemnly at visitors as they sip, swirl and shop. Against the back wall, a glass-fronted refrigerator is well stocked with cheeses, hummus and other picnic fare. This is one of the best places in Sonoma County to have a picnic! Armida Winery is a popular stop along the wine road, because the tasting room is unique, the views are stunning, these folks really know how to show visitors a good time and the wines rock! Let’s talk about the wines – I just had to taste the 2008 PoiZin “The wine to die for.” It is a classic Zinfandel, loaded with aromas and flavors of ripe blackberry, plum, caramel, vanilla and peppery spice, with a big, rich mouthfeel and long, juicy finish. The bottle is really cool, too – it’s black, with a red skull-and-crossbones label. It’s a great deal at $25! I also tasted their 2007 Durrell Vineyard Pinot Noir ($45), which was another delicious, varietally correct wine. The nose drew me in, with mouthwatering hints of rose petal, violet, cherry and baking spices. These aromas continued as flavors in the oh-so-silky mouth and on through the finish. Yum! Be sure to visit this unforgettable place and tell them The Wine Wench sent you! Armida Winery is located at 2201 Westside Road, just outside of Healdsburg. The tasting room is open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. For more information, call (707) 4332222, check them out on Facebook or Twitter or visit their website at www.armida.com.

SONOMA COUNTY | WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK

Environmental Film Festival & Sustainability Conference Offers a Fresh Perspective on the Planet We Call Home
The 4th annual Sonoma Environmental Film Festival and Sustainability Conference, January 21-23, continues its mandate to raise awareness about ecological challenges by offering solutions through the artistry of film and inspiring discussions. Knowledgeable marine biologists, farmers, fishermen, teachers, environmental and management consultants, local government and non profit project coordinators, among others, join filmmakers and event sponsors for a weekend of inspiration, education, lots of fun, delicious healthy food and drink and good old fashioned networking. Founder Justine Ashton of Glen Ellen has put together a program of some of the world’s best films about the planet followed by panel discussions that cover the topics of the films as they relate to our communities. This is not your ordinary festival – conference – it is a weekend event, affordable ($10 to $15 per session) and open to students, seniors and the general public. On Saturday morning January 22nd there will be two short films: Bermuda: Nature’s Jewel is about rooftop rainwater harvesting on all island buildings (there are no lakes, streams or ponds on Bermuda) followed by The Turning Point – A Return to Community with directors Lisa Mead and Alex Page in person. This film seeks to motivate people to embrace peak oil changes with enthusiasm rather than despair and paralysis. It features practical examples of “low carbon” enterprises in and around the Findhorn Foundation community, a 50 year old eco village in Scotland. Richard Heinberg, Rob Hopkins and Joanna Macy offer insightful commentary. Following the films there will be a panel discussion titled Sustainable Sonoma County – Something to Cheer About! Moderated by Ed Bertain, owner of US HydroTech Environmental Solutions, panelists include Cathy Neville, Sonoma County Ag Commissioner who will talk about sustainable, low carbon enterprises in Sonoma County, filmmaker Lisa Mead whose activities in Findhorn included co-managing its organic food store, Erin Axelrod Program Director at Daily Acts, who will talk about harvesting rainwater systems in a residential home in Petaluma and Melinda Kelley, a City of Sonoma Community Services and Environment Commissioner and environmental consultant who will talk about Sonoma Community Center’s new rainwater 7,900 gallon catchment system. Saturday evening there will be the Northern California premiere of Keiko: The Untold Story with producer-director Theresa Demarest and world renown author Kenneth Brower in person. Nowhere in recent history has a captive mammal garnered so much attention as Keiko, the orca star of the 1993 hit film ”Free Willy.” The film’s success launched a children’s crusade that called for Keiko’s release into the wild. The result: a multimillion dollar project that spanned four countries, weathered endless controversy and lasted nearly a decade. Through first-hand accounts by the marine mammal expects charged with his care, the film follows Keiko, his life, his legacy of hope and the untold story of his extraordinary years in Iceland and Norway. Theresa Demarest is a songwriter/ producer/independent filmmaker for Joshua Records, LLC in Portland, Oregon. She brings to life her deep connection to Keiko’s story and allows the audience to explore his enormous embrace of his own freedom. Ken Brower is best known for his many books about the environment, national parks, and natural places, including “Freeing Keiko.” He is the oldest son of the late environmentalist David R. Brower. A session on Sunday afternoon January 23rd includes two films about California’s lost salmon and coral reefs followed by a panel moderated by Chris Bauer, a two-time winner of the international Society of Environmental Journalists Award for Outstanding Television Story and multiple Northern California Emmy Awards winner. Panelists are Zeke Grader, President of the Pacific Coast Federation of Fishermen’s Association and Dr. Geoff Shester, Program Director, Oceana Organization. They will discuss what’s threatening west coast fishing communities, no-trawl zones off the coast to protect coral and sponge habitats, banning commercial harvest of krill, and prohibiting commercial fishing in the US Arctic. There will be a sustainable seafood reception with organic wine from Ashton Vineyard and Deerfield Ranch Winery between films and panel discussion. Seafood and wine are good for the heart! All films, receptions, and panel discussions take place at the Sonoma Womans Club, 574 1st Street East, Sonoma. Tickets are available on line www.seff.us. and at the venue day of show. There are a limited number of Student Scholarships. Contact Justine Ashton at (707) 935-3456 or send her an email wcfilmfest@aol.com. For complete program details visit www.seff.us.

Santa Cruz Mountains Great Wine Weekend, Jan. 15-16
Santa Cruz Mountains Winter Passport Program
The Santa Cruz Mountains Winegrowers Association invites you to take part in the Winter Passport Program. More than fifty Santa Cruz Mountains wineries – from Ahlgren to Zayante – will open their doors to Passport Program participants on Saturday, January 15th between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. Passports, which cost just $40, provide entry into participating wineries, including many that are not normally open to the public. Passport holders will be invited to tour the facilities, meet the winemakers and sample the fruits of their labors – including special wines poured only for citizens in the Passport Program! As an added feature to the Passport Program several of Santa Cruz Mountain’s finest restaurants and wine bars that are offering special discounts to Passport Holders will be showcased on the day of the event. The Passport Program is held on the third Saturday of January, April, July and November, allowing for visitors to view the vineyards at every season in the growing cycle. This winter, on January 15th, begin a new adventure and experience the excellence of the wines produced in this appellation, by spending a wonderful day at the wineries and in the company of winemakers. Santa Cruz Mountains Wines and Passports make wonderful gifts for all occasions. Many of these award-winning wines can be hard to find in stores (and of course are not be available there for sampling). Special prices are also often available during passport. Check the website for area map and last-minute changes in Passport offerings. All four restaurants will be preparing two crab dishes to satisfy your appetite on Sunday, January 16th from 2 to 5 p.m. For $49, you are welcome to take on the challenge of “consumer judge.” Taste food and wine at two restaurants, of your choice, and let them know what you think. All ballots will be tallied to determine the “Consumer Choice Awards” as well as scores from professional judges for the “Judges Choice Awards.” For an additional $16 you can visit another restaurant of your choice. Restaurants are still to be determined but will let you know as soon as they are finalized! Reservations for both events may be purchased from the Santa Cruz Mountains Winegrowers office or online. For more information, or to make reservations, call (831) 685-VINE (8463), go to www.SCMWA.com and enter promo code GW11 for a $5 off discount when you attend both events, or email info@scmwa.com for more

Wine & Crab Taste -Off
Taste wonderful crab dishes paired with luscious local wines. The Santa Cruz Mountains Winegrowers Association presents the eight annual Wine & Crab Taste-Off! Four of the finest local restaurants will be battling it out in hopes of being named “Crab Cook 2010.” Your help is needed to make the decision, so come and judge for yourself!

MONTEREY/CENTRAL COAST | WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK

Vine Hill Winery Receives Coveted CCOF Organic Certification
by Fred Gillaspy
When vineyard manager, Rachel Ormes first arrived at Vine Hill Winery, located in the very heart of the Santa Cruz Mountains overlooking Monterey Bay, she immediately saw the organic potential that the winery’s property possessed to contribute to ecosystem health. So began the extensive process and dedicated effort that has now reaped the prestigious reward of receiving organic certification for the winery and its estate vineyards by the highly regarded agency, California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF). In her focused organic management program at Vine Hill, Rachel integrates a number of non-ecothreatening practices, including integration of an intensive covercropping and green manure program that increases the fertility of the soil; a pest program where insect populations are brought into balance by providing beneficial insect habitat in and around the vineyard; and use of compost teas and biofungicides to help deal with the everpresent fungal pressure that typically prevails with canopy management in coastal vineyards like those at Vine Hill. She does have some concerns about some people’s perceptions of organic

winemaking. “Some wine drinkers associate organic wine with being bad wine . . . and this simply isn’t true. Most folks aren’t aware of the fact that the only difference between ‘organic wine’ and ‘wines made from organic grapes’ is the addition of sulfur dioxide as a preservative. Without the addition of sulfur dioxide, wine readily oxidizes and this is what makes wines go “bad.” Rachel also feels strongly about the significance of organic farming practices and how some consumers perceive the concept of organic farming in general. “There are a number of

misconceptions about the differences between organic, sustainable, biodynamic and conventional farming practices. I think it’s important for the organic consumer to understand that there is sustainable farming – and then there is organic farming – and they are not always the same thing,” she points out. What does this all mean to wine drinkers? The 2010 vintage of Vine Hill’s Pinot Noir and Syrah will be their first estate wines labeled “made from organic grapes.” And aside from being a powerful acknowledgement of Vine Hill’s commitment to the practice of organic farming and its dedication to ecological stewardship, as well as an increasing awareness and acceptance of the benefits of organically grown products, it’s also an assurance that the wine is made under the highest level of quality standards. And that means that there’s something very special to look forward to from Vine Hill when the winery’s first releases of organically grown estate Pinot Noir and Syrah are released in late 2012!

RACHEL ORMES

Vine Hill Winery is located in the Santa Cruz Mountains at 2300 Jarvis Road, Santa Cruz. The tasting room is open to the public on the third weekend of each month from noon to 5pm and for special events and selected holidays. Tastings, winery and vineyard tours by appointment for groups of 10 or more are also available. For more information and directions, visit vinehillwinery.com or call (831) 427-0436.

New Year, More Cheer from Santa Cruz Mountains
A very happy and healthy new year to you from all the Summit Sirens in the Santa Cruz Mountains! Remember, wine not only lowers bad cholesterol and boosts the good, but it puts you in a good mood, which can lower your stress. And who doesn’t need a little stress reduction, especially after the holidays. January opens a new door to a new decade, and the Summit to Sea wineries have an event-packed year filled with delicious opportunities for your tasting pleasure. Visit all the wineries on the Trail for Winter Passport on Saturday, January 15, and you’re in for a special mountain taste treat. On Saturday, sample local jams and chutneys by Tabitha at Burrell School and Poetic Cellars, enjoy a taste of Pinotage at Loma Prieta, the only winery in the mountains to offer this intriguing off-the-path wine, and taste the gregarious Grenache at Hunter Hill. It’s not too late to contribute to the “Sip to End Hunger,” 2nd Harvest Food Bank Drive that runs through the end of January: hunger doesn’t take a holiday. The Summit Sirens are asking for your help to keep the shelves stocked at your local food bank, so bring those leftover cans and non-perishables with you on Passport and you’ll get an extra sip for your good behavior! Cash donations also accepted.
