intelligence for the Wine conSUMer by Len Napolitano

What can be learned from a visit to a winery?
I enjoy visiting wineries and learning as much as I can about the wines, the winemaker and the history of the winery. In addition, the vineyard in the peak of the growing season--June through August--is be a beautiful sight with clusters of red and green grapes under bright green leaves. Winery tasting rooms are as varied as the wines themselves and are always welcoming, whether it’s a large and lavish room or simply a folding table among the barrels in a storage facility. A winery experience also is an opportunity to take a winery tour or talk to the people who are pouring the wines for tasting. This is a chance to learn something about their wines. Whether or not you like the wine, the time spent in a tasting room or winery is a time for discovery and learning. You should feel free to ask questions like “Is this wine filtered or unfiltered?” or “Does the winery source grapes from outside its own property or are the grapes Estate-Grown?” It can also be interesting to know how many cases of wine are produced and how long the wines are aged before they are released to the public. I also like hearing about the history of a winery and how its owner became involved in the wine business. It's surprising how many winery owners started their professional careers in areas completely outside the wine industry. In almost every case it was a deep passion for wine that motivated them. Maybe the best part of the winery experience is breathing in the aroma of a winery during the time of harvest, from September to November, when tons of just-picked grapes are nearby, some already in the process of fermentation. It's a sweet smell of fresh picked fruit mixed with notes of great expectations for a new vintage.

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.

WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK | WINE COUNTRY NEWS

Quality Wines All Under $25 at Wine Garage, Calistoga
by Jeffry Ross
The Skinny – The Wine Garage is all about the juice. It’s also about having fun –
like a kid in a candy store. The Wine Garage is, literally, a former gas station. Todd, the wine buyer, travels far and wide to find top-shelf, affordably priced wines. Inside, you’ll find more than 200 different labels neatly arranged in cases on the floor and an engaging staff who are friendly, attentive and most importantly, they know their wines. Buzz – Despite its funky space, the Wine Garage is a wine lover’s best friend. Reminiscent of visiting your favorite record store (yes, kids, once upon a time, that’s where you had to buy your music), the fun is going through all the cases and finding something you’ve never heard of. All the wines have been test driven by the staff, so, whatever you select, you won’t be disappointed. Value – Ultimately, the Wine Garage is about value. It’s no secret that in Napa Valley, it’s difficult to score a highly rated red for less than $65, but the Wine Garage manages to do it all the time. The staff takes great pride hunting down unusual and lesser-known, limited-production wines and passing their haggling finesse on to us. Ten-second summary – Nothing in this hip hideaway is more than $25 (with a few under $15)! The Wine Garage is stocked with premium, small-lot wines that you won’t find at BevMo, Trader Joe’s or your local wine store (plus, they do a better job storing their wines at the correct temperature). Best bets – In addition to all the labels the Wine Garage represents, they also produce their own lip-smacking blends. My in-house favorites are: 2009 Joy Ride White, 2008 Russian River Syrah, 2007 Napa Valley Cabernet, 2008 Chihuahua Cabernet and 2006 Hillside Cabernet. Under-the-radar – Go old-school with half-gallon jugs filled while you wait using their specifically designed service station nozzles. Not only are the wines delicious (and affordable), the jug is crazy fun conversation at the table. It’s also a cool gift. Secrets – For the next few weeks, receive an additional ten percent off the already low prices when you purchase six bottles. Twenty percent on a case. Better yet, the Wine Garage has the BEST wine club in the valley – and they ship just about everywhere. Insider – If you’re a serious wino, get on the inside track for ultra exclusive deals by hooking up with the Wine Garage on Twitter and Facebook (wine club members get first crack to cream-of-the-crop finds).

FEATURE STORY | WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK

St. Supéry Estate Vineyards & Winery
The Fusion of Great Wine & Fine Art
by Abigail P. Zimmerman
“I believe that fine art is the perfect marriage to great wines,” says Robert Skalli, owner of St. Supéry Estate Vineyards and patron of contemporary art. Skalli is host to the first-ever Napa Valley exhibition of world-renowned artist Wayne Thiebaud in St. Supéry Tasting Room and Art Gallery. Titled “Mountains,” the 14 paintings will be on unique display only now through the end of August. St. Supéry Estate partnered with the Paul Thiebaud Gallery in San Francisco to exhibit Thiebaud’s latest paintings for free to guests visiting the winery. Wayne Thiebaud is one of the most celebrated and acclaimed American realist painters of the twentieth century. Many know Thiebaud, a Sacramento resident, for his iconic interpretations of baked goods. In contrast, the Mountain exhibition embraces “aspects of realist paintings with the celebration of texture and light, but adheres closely to his experiments in geometric shapes and bold brush strokes of complementary colors.” Art Critic for Time Magazine, Robert Hughes, continues: “[Thiebaud] paints what he wants to paint, he is alive, his work is alive and the strokes of color that make a landscape are the invention of his idea of fantasy.” St. Supéry’s Art Gallery is part of the winery’s daily Tasting Room experience. Visitors to the winery will be able to enjoy St Supery’s new releases and signature Estate wines while gazing upon interpretations of the Sierra Nevadas and Yosemite from one of the finest American artists. St. Supéry Estate Vineyards & Winery is a family-owned estate winery with more than 500 acres of sustainably farmed, Napa Green Certified vineyards growing Bordeaux grape varieties. Unique to wine labels today, St. Supéry grows all of their own grapes for their Napa Valley portfolio of wines as well as highly regarded single vineyard Dollarhide and Rutherford Vineyard releases. Specializing in proprietary Bordeaux blends (red and white) and single varietal wines, St. Supéry meticulously farms over 500 acres of planted vineyards along the mountain ridges and valley floors of Napa Valley. The winery owns in total 1,556 acres of property. As a result, St. Supéry produces a unique, artisan array of carefully grown and crafted fine wines. Guests visiting St. Supéry Estate Vineyards are in for a treat. In addition to world-class Thiebaud art exhibition, fine wine is what St. Supéry does best. While much of Napa Valley boasts big, tannic reds, St. Supéry is incredibly proud of its lineup of whites also, including the St. Supéry Sauvignon Blanc. Produced in 2010, this fabulous white wine is a great sipper but also goes well with food. Aromas of exotic grapefruit and green lime dominate the palate with hints of lemon zest, kiwi and guava through the crisp finish. $20 per bottle retail. The release of the new 2006 St. Supéry Élu will also be a favorite for old and new fans. This inky, garnet Bordeaux blend boasts aromas of plum and black cherry and smooth flavors of vanilla and tobacco. A long, full finish tops off this seamless wine. $65 per bottle retail. Dollarhide is a fun aside in the St. Supéry history. Andrew Jackson Dollarhide ran a successful horse ranch and cattle operation catering to the boom of the California Gold Rush in the mid-19th century. A colorful character in Napa lore, Dollarhide carries a weighted name. When the Skalli family purchased the old property in 1982, they wisely named the new vineyard after the old great man. St. Supéry Estate Vineyards Tasting Room offers a birds-eye view of winemaking production. Visitors to the Art Gallery on the 2nd Floor can see all elements of wine production from the crush pad and fermentation room to the cellars and bottling line. Regardless of the time of year, activity abounds in and around the St. Supéry Tasting Room as highly trained staff works to produce the acclaimed wines.

Robert Mondavi Winery
Summer Music Festival
The 2011 Robert Mondavi Winery Summer Music Festival begins its 42nd year with a performance by Gavin DeGraw on July 2 at the winery in Napa Valley. One of the wine country’s most established and anticipated concert series, the Summer Music Festival will showcase five performances this year. Since the founding of the winery, both the late Robert Mondavi and his wife, Margrit, have worked to introduce wine, food and art as an integral part of the American experience. “This year’s lineup presents artists that are excellent musicians in their genre,” noted Margrit Mondavi, who founded the concert series in 1969. “Robert’s belief that we could make wines that stand in the company of the world’s finest, leads us to select artists who stand in the company of the world’s greatest. We are so excited to start with Gavin this year.” For the July 2 “Celebrating the American Dream with Gavin DeGraw,” guests will experience one of today’s premier singer-songwriters. DeGraw is known for his heartfelt lyrics and soulful, blues-tinged vocals. On July 9, the “Fume Blanc Concert with Colbie Caillat” features this Grammy-nominated rising star and her dusky vocals and acoustic guitar. The Summer Festival continues July 16 with “Festival del Sole Presents David Foster and Friends.” Foster is a noted singer, songwriter and composer from Canada, and his friends include the Canadian Tenors, Charice, Babyface and Ruben Studdard. Chris Isaak headlines the Summer Festival July 23 for the “Spotlight on To Kalon concert.” Since his debut in 1985, Chris Isaak has been captivating audiences with his signature rock ‘n’ roll music. The festival concludes July 30 with the “Winemaker of the Year concert with k.d. lang and the Siss Boom Bang.” A four-time Grammy Award winner, k.d. lang will enchant you with her touching and engaging songs. In the 42 years since the Summer Music Festival’s inception, Robert Mondavi Winery has donated more than $2 million from the proceeds to support the Napa Valley Symphony, the Napa Valley Unified School District and the Napa Valley Opera House. “Robert Mondavi Winery is so proud to support the community with our summer concerts,” said Margrit Mondavi. “Through our festival, we have been able to provide support to important institutions, ensuring that great music in the Napa Valley endures.” All performances begin at 7 p.m. and are held at the Robert Mondavi Winery on Highway 29 in Oakville, Napa Valley. Ticket prices vary by performance. For additional information and to purchase tickets, visit www.robertmondaviwinery.com or call 1888-RMONDAVI (766-6328). Founded in 1966, Robert Mondavi Winery is the shining symbol of California’s Napa Valley. The first major winery built in Napa Valley in the three decades since the repeal of Prohibition, Robert Mondavi Winery went on to establish the foundation for the modern-day California wine industry. With the philosophy that great wines reflect their origins, Robert Mondavi Winery pursues the fullest expression of the terroir of Napa Valley.

Charles Krug/ Peter Mondavi Winery Celebrates 150th Anniversary at ‘Tasting on the Lawn,’ September 10
On Saturday, September 10, Charles Krug Winery and the Peter Mondavi Sr. Family will toast the season’s grape harvest at the annual Tasting on the Lawn from 2 to 5 p.m. This year’s event will also celebrate a significant milestone – the 150th anniversary of Napa Valley’s first winery. Founded in 1861, Charles Krug represents the birthplace of the Napa Valley wine industry. The festivities will take place on the estate’s expansive Great Lawn in the shade of heritage oaks and surrounded by vineyards, a location unequaled by any other outdoor space in Napa Valley, and inside the estate’s recently restored 1881 Carriage House.

A summary of the day’s events:
Visitors will enjoy tastings of Charles Krug’s current releases, from Sauvignon Blanc to Cabernet Sauvignon, including the winery’s Limited Release and Family Reserve wines. Tastings will be paired with a moveable feast selected especially to complement the wines by Knickerbockers’ Catering. Three complete food and wine areas spread throughout the park-like estate will add to the festive atmosphere. In addition, chefs from several acclaimed Napa Valley restaurants will be on hand for the anniversary event, serving samples of their specialties to pair with Charles Krug wines. To add to the ambiance, actors portraying Charles Krug and his wife Carolina Bale Krug will stroll the Great Lawn in period costume, presenting vignettes from their lives 150 years ago. Two opportunities will offer a rare taste of Napa wine history that guests will get nowhere else. There will be special pourings from magnums of Charles Krug’s 150th Anniversary Cabernet Sauvignon, and a rare tasting of older vintage wines from the estate’s cellar (additional fee applies). These premium tastings will take place in the Carriage House ballroom. The ballroom boasts a soaring cathedral ceiling and stunning period chandeliers, and was recently refinished with old-growth redwood recovered from historic wine tanks. All guests will have the opportunity to enjoy wine tasting directly from the barrels and meet members of the Peter Mondavi Family, who will be on hand to sign bottles for guests. Live music on the main stage will provide a backdrop for all of the festivities. Tastings on the Lawn were started in 1951 as an enjoyable venue where the family could meet their customers, and educate visitors about fine wine; in the United States at that time, the wine industry was known more for ‘jug’ wines and not varietal wines. This Charles Krug tradition is believed to have been the first wine celebration of its kind, and went on to inspire myriad other wine country tasting events. Lawn chairs, picnic blankets and straw hats are encouraged for the September 10 event. Tickets are available online ($40 before August 1) at www.charleskrug.com. As always, admission for members of the wine club is complimentary, by calling Wine Club Manager Colin Wright at 1-888-747-5784, preferably by August 1.

Buena Vista Winery
Est. 1857
By Abigail P. Zimmerman
One of California’s first wineries is also one of it’s finest. Founded in 1857 by a man as colorful in character as oenologically savvy, Buena Vista Winery is a treasure for wine lovers and history buffs visiting Wine Country. Hungarian Count Agoston Haraszthy (1812-1869) came to America as a penniless aristocrat with a restless spirit. He tried several business and agricultural ventures on his journey west to California but was primarily interested in successfully reproducing the fine wines from his home continent. Upon emigrating in 1840, the Count worked his way west, first planting vines in South Dakota where the winter-freeze efficiently killed every vine. Next he traveled to warmer San Diego and was employed as a Sheriff – only to be ousted when his jails proved so flimsy that prisoners simply dug their way out. San Francisco was next where he planted vines in a still-too-cold climate. But it was here his “luck” changed. With some training in metals, and keeping one eye north on an area he’d heard called Sonoma, Count Haraszthy accepted a position as an Assayer of Gold during the California Gold Rush. He was subsequently accused of and tried for embezzlement. It seems his estimates consistently ran short of the actual weight. But he was acquitted. The very next day, the Count purchased the Buena Vista properties. Almost immediately, Count Haraszthy began laying foundation for winery buildings and digging caves. Now flush with equity, Haraszthy brought to his Buena Vista dreams of winemaking and the knowhow… as well as cuttings of European varietals – the very first vinus vinifera grapes planted in California. At the time, wine was produced from hearty Mission grapes. But Haraszthy planted the tender vines of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Chardonnay. The structures of the Buena Vista winery were built from handcarved limestone. These finely crafted winery facilities altered industry thinking. Indeed, the Buena Vista Tasting Room was completed in 1862 and was California’s 1st Stone Fermentation Room. Today, it is host to visitors seeking to savor the rich flavors of Carneros wines.

Buena Vista Today
Specializing in artisan wines and careful stewardship of more than 500 acres of estate vineyards, Buena Vista wines display an amazing array of fruit flavors and textures. Buena Vista’s Carneros-grown fruit benefits greatly from vineyards straddling the southernmost tip of Sonoma and Napa counties. Coastal fog and breezes cool the vines and extend the growing season. Grapes are more balanced and fruit forward. Wines poured at the tasting room are exclusive releases and not

widely distributed. Most specifically, Buena Vista’s wines made from their famed Ramal Vineyards attract a cult following. The Ramal Vineyard boasts 500 acres of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in more than 100 distinct blocks. Ramal grapes are clone specific and grown to best reflect the topography, geology and microclimates. Visitors to the tasting room will taste the Ramal wines and savor this reserve tier. Ramal wines are made from the best grapes available to Buena Vista annually. A perfect example of this cultivated elegance would be the 2007 Ramal Vineyard Chardonnay. Winemaker Jeff Stewart and the Buena Vista team produced a wonderfully balanced Chardonnay with floral aromas and a pretty nose of Asian pear, citrus rind, and minerals (98 points and Double Gold winner, $36). The 2007 Ramal Vineyard Pinot Noir is already a favorite. Showing great intensity, structure, and age-ability, the 2007 Pinot is a deep purple wine with plum flavors, vanilla, and a long, silky finish, ($42). Don’t miss the 2008 Ramal Vineyard Pinot Noir, Clone 538. Produced from an Alsatian Clone, this Pinot Noir stands out for its vibrant purple color, bright acidity and robust flavors of bing cherries, dark raspberries and vanilla ($42). In April, Buena Vista Winery changed hands and the Boisset Family Estates is the proud new owner. Born into a proud Burgundian winemaking family, Jean Charles Boisset first came to America at 11 years old and visited Buena Vista. The property apparently had not lost its magic. Jean Charles felt a special connection with the property and now quips that he’s been trying to acquire the winery for more than 20 years.

Perfect Pairs

BY ALEXANDRA CHARSLEY

Crab Cakes Paired with 2009 Waterstone Chardonnay
Every year I can’t wait for crab season! Even if you can’t get fresh crab, tin crab works well so this dish can easily be made year ’round. Whenever I make crab cakes, I usually make parsley sauce but since this recipe contains dill, I thought the Chardonnay cream sauce would make a nice change. This is a family recipe from Philip Zorn, winemaker at Waterstone Winery. The 2009 Waterstone Chardonnay pairs perfectly with the sweet delicate flavors in these crab cakes. After one bite you will be longing for something crisp and refreshing and this wine is sure to delight. The exterior chips add great texture and just the right amount of salt. I love that the Chardonnay was also used in the cream sauce. I am a firm believer that your pantry should never contain a cooking wine! Even though the cream sauce has only three ingredients, it is anything but basic. It’s best to double the sauce recipe as we couldn’t get enough of it! The citrus flavors in the wine are bright and refined which make it a great wine for this dish. With that little bit of oak for richness, it’s easy to indulge in this perfectly balanced Chardonnay. Waterstone Winery was formed in 2000 when veteran winemaker Philip Zorn and longtime wine executive Brent Shortridge were introduced and discovered a shared interest in creating luxury wines at affordable prices. They have preferred to focus on the wine itself and produce balanced wines of varietal character and only source the best grapes for their wines. While Zorn and Shortridge do not own any vineyards or winemaking facilities, they have proven that they are dedicated winemakers producing top quality wines in Napa. Waterstone Wines are available for tasting at the Taste at Oxbow across the street from the Oxbow Public Market. They offer a complete downtown Napa experience, featuring the wines of Waterstone and Mahoney Vineyards and boutique retail items. If you want a more personal tasting, call (707) 265-9600 to book your next sit down tasting or wine pairing and their knowledgeable staff will work out all the details. All gourmet foods served are from local purveyors at the Oxbow Market. The tasting room is open daily Sunday through Thursday from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m. and Friday and Saturday 12 p.m. to 9 p.m. Reservations are not required which makes it a great place to stop when you are in downtown Napa. On Saturday, July 9th, from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., Taste at Oxbow is holding a Mahoney White and Asian Bite Food Pairing. This is going to be a great event featuring the wines of Mahoney Vineyards and Asian food from Dim Sum Charlie’s food truck. Winemaker Ken Foster will be on hand to guide guests through the pairings. Live music will be provided by Richard Perrot. This event has a limited number of tickets being sold so please call Mallory at (707) 253-9463 or email muran@mahoneyvineyards.com. Tickets are $30 for The Edge Club Members and $35 for non-members.

Re-warm sauce over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, before serving.) Place remaining potato chips in shallow dish. Press each cake into chips, turning to coast evenly.

Working in batches, add crab cakes to skillet and cook until golden brown and heated through, adding more oil as necessary, about 5 minutes per side. Transfer crab cakes to paper-towel-lined plated to drain. Place 2 crab cakes on each plate.

SUISUN VALLEY
La Salette – Vezér Family Vineyard
If you are somewhere in the Napa or Sonoma wine country today, do you realize you are only about 15 to 20 minutes away from tasting your very first “La Salette”? People from all over the world can tell you where and when they first tasted La Salette. This simply gorgeous wine has started to be quite a phenomenon, especially when a single bottle – a specially signed magnum – brought in more than $30,000 at a prestigious charity wine auction in 2007. Fortunately, outside of the world of black ties, and tuxedos, one can get a taste, or a bottle, for far less. You say you have never heard of La Salette? Well, the truth is you cannot say you have tasted all of the best California has to offer until you have at least tasted this seductively lush, deep red wine. It’s smooth, as if laying naked in amongst silk sheets, with just enough tannins to let you know this is a big person’s drink. Add to this experience, dark cherries and ripe plums with aromas of vanillas and nuts coming from the strategically paired and very light use of French Limousine Oak barrels. La Salette is a blend of two Californian varietals made in a very similar style to the Amorone. La Salette is trademarked and can only be grown and vinted in Suisun Valley. It’s a wine that no one has ever been disappointed after trying. Come discover this amazing wine in Suisun Valley. Often referred to as “the Napa Back Road,” this quaint little valley of rolling oak-studded hills, laced with terraced vineyards is back-dropped by the towering Vaca Mountains and the Twin Sister Mountains that separates the approximately 15-mile span from the town of Napa to the darling Suisun Valley. This valley, which is thought to be one of the oldest winemaking regions in North America, is dotted with small boutique family-owned wineries. The old country charm found here gives you that feel of what Napa used to be like in the era that set the scene for the Movie “Bottle Shock” and the famous prime time soap “Falcon Crest”.

Here in Suisun Valley, you will find many great little gems at very reasonable prices. However, two absolute must visit wineries that are the actual custodians of the trademark license and the hallowed grounds that the La Salette was first grown and produced on. These special boutique wineries are the

The Napa Back Road
Blue Victorian Winery and Vezér Family Vineyard Winery. The Vezer Family, along with their married children, own and operate both wineries. Each winery is uniquely different, but both in their own way entirely preserves the 160-year-old Pioneer Estates they operate on. The Blue Victorian has a very unique verity of wines. They also carry a new second generation of the Vezer’s world-famous La Salette blend called the Trio Amici. The Blue Victorian is where you can actually enter into the dramatic Barrel Room with 40-foot ceilings and large rustic timbers tied together with artistic iron works. This is where you can see and taste this blend being created right from the barrels. The original first-generation La Salette that has won so much acclaim is sold half of a mile down the road at the Vezér Family’s other tasting room, located in the tiny little village of Mankas Corner. This little village was originally founded by a ’49er mining family and carries its namesake. Mankas Corner existed as a stagecoach overnight stop and Pony Express station until the late 1800s. After purchasing the entire village nearly 160 years later, the Vezers established it as a European wine oasis: a beautiful deli, restaurant, concert gardens and stone winery with tasting room. You will soon find that Vezér makes some of California’s finest wines, and the tasting rooms are ran by professional Sommeliers that can answer almost any wine questions you may have. However, with all this said the Vezérs maintain a “No Snobs” policy, so all of their customers feel so happily welcomed and appreciated. Come visit the Vezérs – there’s a good chance one of the family members will be working the day you visit and they would love to give you a personal tour. Also try their double gold Cabs, Zinfandels, Petite Sirahs and Verdelhos.

WINE COUNTRY NEWS | WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK

Summers Estate Winery
A ‘Perfect Balance’ at the Top of the Valley
by Josh Stein
There are plenty of places throughout the Valley to find nice wines, but if you’re looking to see for yourself what the original settlers and planters appreciated about the north end’s gifts to red wines, Summers Estate Winery on Calistoga’s Tubbs Lane is where you want to go to taste the best appreciation of that 19th-century founding vision of vines and place: the largest planting left anywhere of the heritage variety Charbono. That alone would be reason to visit, but the range of wines which await you are matched by the views of Mount St. Helena and the world-famous “Old Faithful” Calistoga geyser that greet you as you pull in to the winery. And all that before you’ve even stepped through the door. Stewardship of the land and preservation of the things that have worked well in the past have guided everything the Summerses have done in the wine business. Jim and Beth Summers purchased their first vineyard, twenty-eight acres in Knights Valley, in 1987, planted mostly to Merlot and Muscat Canelli; the first Summers Ranch wines were the 1993 vintage. Several years later, they added the twenty-five acre Villa Andriana Vineyard, named for their daughter, to be the home of Summers Estate Wines in Calistoga. While maintaining the spirit of the original settlers’ vision of intense, Old World reds, the properties have been completely revitalized and brought into the modern Napa Valley; Cabernet Sauvignon has now joined the Charbono and Petite Sirah, and the four-acre block of very special, old-vine Zinfandel, in Calistoga. As they like to say around the winery, “It’s the perfect balance of pleasure and productivity.” The winery is known for its wide-ranging choices of bottlings, giving a true sense of the variety the hills are capable of supporting. Equally, because these are very small production runs, what you find being poured and available for purchase is ever-changing. In addition to the justly renowned Charbono,

Beth & Jim Summers
the winery produces several Chardonnays sourced from throughout the state, Rosé of Charbono, Zinfandel, Merlot, Petite Sirah, multiple bottlings of Estate and Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, the Checkmate red blend, a sweet Muscat Canellli dessert white, and a Petite Sirah port. All current releases have been rated 90+, or as Beth Summers modestly says when asked, “Yes, we’ve done well recently.” Given the options, the only people who will be disappointed are the ones who don’t stop in. And there really is good reason to do so as, in addition to the vistas of the Valley and the wine options, the people at the winery make the experience. Ask around and folks will let

you in on a bit of a secret: the tasting experience at the winery is spot on, comfortable and personalized, and what’s most impressive is their ability to consistently deliver fantastic food-and-wine matches. Additionally, there is a picnic area reserved especially for tasting guests only, re-enforcing the serenity and separation from the busy Calistoga main drag. Because of new Valley regulations, wines can be purchased and enjoyed with your lunch outside, taking in the views. It’s probably not too surprising with all of the above that folks have requested the creation of several wine clubs to allow the Summers Estate releases to come to them year-round. Members of the Bacchus and Bocce club not only have options on how much wine is delivered and how often, but they also gain access to winery-only bocce tournaments, harvest parties, and picnics. Looking for further incentive to come visit? The upcoming Calistoga Celebration and Fundraiser will allow you to taste Summers Estate Winery’s releases as well as wines from two dozen other small Calistoga producers. Contact napagrowers.org for further details. All in, Summers Estate Winery gives you the best of two valleys and California’s most and least planted varietals, Cabernet and Charbono, respectively, in a setting that’s impossible to beat with folks happy to see you. Come see for yourself the “perfect balance” that awaits at the top of the Valley.

Stags Leap District - A Valley Within The Valley
by Tom Flippen
At a blind tasting in Paris in 1976, with an all-French panel of judges and featuring some of France’s finest, voted best Cabernet Sauvignon was a 1973 bottling from a winery in an undesignated area of the Napa Valley. When another winery from that same undesignated area won a second competition in Paris ten years later, the American Viniculture Association took notice, and in 1989 the Stags Leap District was officially designated an American Viniculture Area. On the east side of Napa valley, opposite Highway 29 and bisected by the Silverado Trail, the Stags Leap District is barely a mile wide and just under three miles long. It is a valley within the Napa Valley, bordered by the Vaca Mountains and, most prominently, the Stags Leap Pallisades after which the District is named. Although the first winery was established there in 1878, Cabernet Sauvignon was not planted until 1961, contrary to conventional wisdom about the District’s soil and climate, and when there were a grand total of 800 acres of CabSauv in the entire United States. (Fast forward: some 34,000 acres in the U.S. today, with 9,800 in the Napa Valley). Limited offerings of Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc are available at some Stags Leap District

wineries, but it’s really about the Cabs. Individual renderings elicit different aspects of the intense flavors from fruit produced by lowyield vines grown in the coarse, rocky soils that are one of the District’s distinctions. Climate of course helps: morning fog from the San Pablo Bay stops almost literally at the Silverado Trail sign that marks the District’s southern boundary, while throughout the day sunlight reflects off the surrounding palisades for longer doses of warmth. There are now 18 wineries in the Stags Leap District. Several are either not open to the public or by appointment only – but, all

of them (yes, all!) can be accessed over one weekend in May each year during the Stags Leap Winegrowers Association V2V (Vineyard to Vintner) open house. For example, the Lindstrom Winery is open just those two days (and their ’08 Cab gets 94 points from Robert Parker). It’s up a steep hill by shuttle for a spectacular view of a total 204 acres, only four of which are planted because of the terrain. Other treats during the V2V weekend include a chance to chat with Bob Hartwell at his namesake winery (he’s the co-inventor of Velcro); with Richard Steltzner in caves at his eponymous winery - and note the framed 1987 article where he’s states he’s “about to break even.” Then consider his ’05 Cabernet in a 40th anniversary bottle signed by him; and partaking of a BBQ personally prepared before your very eyes by Tom Baldacci at his winery. Goes great with his Four Sons Cabernet (the next bottling with be called “Fraternity” as three sons are now collegeaged). Abundanza! The Stags Leap District offers a visual appeal that complements the unique taste experiences at the small number of wineries located there. Visiting the area, and any of the wineries, addresses all senses, and will not disappoint any. A list of all wineries in the District is available at the Stags Leap Winegrowers Association website, www.stagsleapdistrict.com.

Horseback Riding Returns to Wild Horse Valley
Four Star Farm Relocates to Kenzo Estate
Kenzo Estate has announced that Four Star Farm, a highly respected equestrian training center has moved its Napa location to the south end of Kenzo Estate at the former site of Wild Horse Valley Ranch. The company’s Bodega location will remain in operation. Four Star Farm specializes in the training of horse and rider for the eventing and dressage disciplines. Head Trainer Natalie Rooney Pitts, U.S. equestrian team member and Olympic hopeful, learned to ride at the Wild Horse Valley Ranch property that eventually became Kenzo Estate starting at the age of six. She has successfully ridden at the fourstar level in eventing and through the FEI levels of dressage, has ridden on the U.S. Team for eventing, and earned a U.S.D.F Silver . Medal in dressage. Natalie also graduated with distinction from the USDF Judges L-program. Four Star Farm offers lessons, training, coaching at shows, clinics, and a state-of-the art rehabilitation program for sport horse injuries. Quality horses are also available for lease and for sale. The company also offers a recognized Pony Club Riding Center Program for youths who do not own their own horses. “Kenzo Estate is delighted to have Natalie, her horses and her students come to this land. It is such a special place and deserves to be shared with the community as it was in the past,” said Kaz Kano, COO of Kenzo Estate. Kenzo Estate, located at 3200 Monticello Road in Napa, is open for tastings by appointment only seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Appointments can be made by calling 1-877-977-7704 or visiting www.kenzoestate.com. Four Star Farm is located at 7471 Wild Horse Valley Road in Napa. To inquire about Four Star Farm’s services, call (707) 312-1119 or visit www.fourstarfarm.com. Arrangements to participate in Four Star Farm’s equestrian activities can only be made directly through Four Star Farm.

Eat, See and Learn: The Best Way to Experience Napa Valley
Local Napa Valley wine educator serves Wine Train guests sensory wine tasting tips dosed with local history.
The Napa Valley Wine Train has recently launched a new wine appreciation class that explores food, wine and Napa winery history. The course entitled “Eat, See, Learn,” encourages guests to relish every moment and deeply explore each bite and sip while traveling through and learning about one of the most beautiful places in the world. “Eat, See, Learn” is hosted by wellknown Napa local, Richard Miami, who is a Wine Educator at Robert Mondavi Richard Miami Winery. Miami was born and raised in St. Helena, and has worked for Domaine Chandon, COPIA, and as an entertaining tour consultant for both the Napa and Sonoma Valleys. During the class, Miami will stroll through the Vista Dome while he discusses the Robert Mondavi wines and shares stories and facts about Napa History, as well as about Mr. Mondavi. But Miami isn’t the only Trancas main event for the afternoon, he shares the stage with the fresh, gourmet DOMINARI cuisine of the Napa Valley Wine Train's Executive Chef, Kelly Macdonald.
Big Ranch Rd

All of the Wine Train’s rail cars have been restored with an eye to authenticity, but the Vista Dome Car is extra special. The 1952 Vista Dome is one of only of a handful of full dome cars made by Pullman and it truly exudes elegance. The two story car consists of the private kitchen on the ground level, and the exclusive dining room on the second level. The dining area is surrounded by large, curved windows, which give passengers an unobstructed and elevated view of Napa. Sessions are $165 per person. Classes held on select dates only: June 13, June 27, July 11, July 25, August 15 and August 29. For more information, visit the website at winetrain.com/events/wine-tasting-class.

Napa Chef’s Market Season Returns in Napa Downtown
World-renowned Chefs Will Demonstrate Talent and Serve Up Tasty Treats Every Week
The seventeenth annual Thursday Night Napa Chef’s Market summer season has begun and will run through August 4. The event is free, family-oriented and open to the public from 5 to 9 p.m. on First Street in Downtown Napa. While many cities have mid-week street festivals, only Chef’s Market features two cooking demonstrations each night, at 6:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., featuring world-renowned chefs who are also Napa locals. After the demonstration, audience members can enjoy a sample of the food paired with a taste of wine from downtown tasting rooms. Both are free of charge. Chef’s Market manager Julie Morales looks for ways to make the market better each year, and this year she has a couple of changes up her sleeve that market-goers should enjoy. “The Food Truck Stop should be popular this year,” said Morales. “Food trucks are all the rage these days, and we have invited a number of them to set up at Randolph Street. So far, Cross Road Chicken, Mark’s the Spot and Phat Salads & Wraps will be in the lineup.” That area will include some of the most popular bands, as well. “We used to put the best bands at Dwight Murray Plaza, but there is so much good music now that the Food Truck Stop stage (on Randolph) will be just as popular,” said Morales. Other new food vendors include Pizza Azzurro, featuring a pizza oven on the street; Anna’s Catering, offering authentic Mexican food; La Crepe and Divco Dogs, a new hot dog cart. Regular favorites such as the Oyster Guy, Willie Bird, Fillipi’s and Anderson Catering will also be on hand. If food isn’t your thing, three musical stages will provide a musical mix to appeal to a variety of tastes. Chef’s Market will have a new and improved Family Entertainment Zone this year, with a focus on art and fitness for the whole family. This area will feature recycled arts and crafts from Napa Valley Arts Council, an obstacle course from Napa Entertainment & Sports, games and fun from Napa Valley Toy Company and of course, singalongs and music from Miss Jenny. It will now be located on First Street between Randolph and Franklin near Anette’s Chocolates and the new Eiko’s restaurant, formerly Piccolino’s. The farmers will be located on Coombs Street, tying them closer to the Chef’s demonstration. “It only makes sense to have all the fresh food together,” said Morales. Chef’s Market has been voted Best Family Outing by local radio station listeners for years. Stroll the streets while enjoying a glass of Napa Valley wine, a cold beer or other non-alcoholic beverage. From Highway 29, take the First Street exit toward downtown. For more information, call (707) 257-0322 or visit the website at www.napadowntown.com.

NAPA VALLEY | WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK

Tasting Room of the Week:

The Hess Collection
by Charles Neave
It is my contention, one most agree with, that successful winemaking is a combination of art, science and agriculture. Nowhere can I think of a winery that has art as such a major factor as at The Hess Collection. Here, two entire floors of the historic winery are devoted to just that, though not in the manner you might first imagine. The Hess Collection on Napa Valley’s famous and lofty Mount Veeder is unique in many ways. There’s the historic 1903 building – once occupied by the Christian Brothers – hillside vineyards, beautiful grounds and an art collection that is in a league of its own. Then there are the wines available for tasting in their stunning tasting room near the barrel cellars. The museum holds part of Swiss businessman Donald Hess’s extensive collection of contemporary art. When it comes to wine, the roster is comprised of Hess Collection Mount Veeder, Hess Napa Valley and Hess Select. The list of varietals they source includes Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, classic Bordeaux blends, Petite Sirah and a rich and well-balanced dessert wine, the Late Harvest Chardonnay. The wines come from steep Mount Veeder 10:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Special tours are available and you can also schedule an educational wine production tour followed by a current release presentation paired with local artisan cheeses, or a guided tour of the Hess Collection Contemporary Art Museum with food pairings and tasting of three wines To sum it up, a visit to this special winery is the perfect way to relax, learn, revel in nature and art – both in the bottle and on the walls – and enjoy some of Napa’s finest wines. As the winery’s hospitality director, Jim Caudill, says, “The wine and cheese pairing experience, sitting outside in the courtyard, is a really nice way to enjoy the visit. The museum, of course, is something well worth experiencing and even if folks have visited before, we do introduce new works throughout the year, so there’s likely to be something they might not have enjoyed before. The peaceful, historic sight well off the hustle and bustle of Highway makes a visit to Hess something different. The tasting room and galleries at the The Hess Collection are open every day from 10 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. It is located at 4411 Redwood Road about 15 minutes from Napa. For more information, call (707) 255-1144 or visit the website, www.hesscollection.com.

estate vineyards and showcase the unique climate and show structure, complexity and elegance. Single vineyard wines come from Napa Valley sites are handpicked based on climate and location. The Small Block Series wines, sold only at the winery, generate donations to local environmental groups in the “1% For The Planet” program. The estate properties are sustainably farmed in accordance with founder Donald Hess’s philosophy to “nurture the land, return what you take.” Even the tables and chairs outdoors, where the landscaping matches the setting, are made of reclaimed wood. It all blends together seamlessly. In addition to the standard tasting room option, they also offer a wide variety of tasting options. There are also complimentary winery and vineyard tours offered daily between

Golden Haven Hot Springs Spa and Resort
by Michelle J. Baker
What could be more relaxing than a stay at the Golden Haven Spa and Resort in Calistoga? Start your days off with a dip in the resort’s hot springs mineral pool, enjoy any of a number of spa treatments Golden Haven offers, and then head out for a day of wine tasting. When you come back to the resort, rest in your newly remodeled, cozy and charming room or relax out on the sun deck; then stroll into downtown Calistoga for dinner. Act now and you can book Golden Haven’s most popular room, the Jacuzzi room, which features a full size whirlpool spa, a luxurious king bed (located a short dive from the whirlpool), vaulted ceilings and dressing area. The hot water in the private in-room whirlpool spa, as well as the rest of the resorts baths, showers and pools, is the natural Calistoga hot springs mineral water (cooled to 110 degrees) that has made Calistoga the premier spa destination in wine country. Even if you’re lodging somewhere else, or you live locally, Golden Haven Spa has the perfect spa package for you. Golden Haven proudly specializes in couple spa packages – in fact Golden Haven is one of the few Napa Valley spas where couples can actually enjoy spa treatments side-by-side. Start off your spa day with an immersion mud bath – if you’ve never had one before, it’s an epiphany for all of your senses. The combination of clay, peat and hot springs mineral waters in the mud bath relaxes muscles and joints, detoxifies, and leaves the skin soft and renewed. After your mud bath, shower off, hop in the Jacuzzi for a while and then enjoy a quiet, soothing massage, facial, herbal facial, European body wrap or mineral bath. Feel the stress melt away! Golden Haven also offers many other specials: a Girlfriend Spa Special, perfect for a girls’ weekend away; midweek specials, if your vacation plans bring you to the Napa Valley Monday-Thursday; and Solo Specials, if you want to take in some spa treatments on your own. The Golden Haven Hot Springs Spa and Resort is located at 1713 Lake Street in Calistoga, just a few minutes walk to the center of downtown Calistoga’s wine tasting venues, shopping and worldclass restaurants. For more information or to book a reservation, call Golden Haven at (707) 942-8000. Visit them on the web at www.goldenhaven.com.

Glen Ellen Provides Delicious Destination for Complete Wine Country Culinary Experience
The HKG Tasting Room in the charming town of Glen Ellen in Sonoma, will offer special wine and food pairings created by chefs of the award-winning Kenwood Inn and Spa.

In addition, visitors can purchase desserts to-go from the tasting room’s retail case, including individual pastries and sweet and savory pies. Pastry Chef Khambay, a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York, anticipates providing a delicious pairing at the tasting room as well as cooking goodies to go. “I’m most excited about being able to put a savory twist on traditional desserts, and utilizing the bounty of seasonal and local produce that Sonoma wine country has to offer.

The Cool Cats of Sausal Winery invite you to join them for a day of Rock n’ Roll and Classic Cars on Saturday June 25th from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.! Enjoy a diner-style lunch of hamburgers with all the fixin’s, hand scooped ice cream cones, and of course, Sausal's awardwinning wines! Rock out to the sounds of Allways Elvis. That’s right, Elvis will be in the building or more likely on the lawn, shimmying and shaking and singing all your favorites.

St. Francis Winery’s 2nd Annual ‘Stars Under the Stars’ Film Festival Pairs Silver Screen Icons with Stellar Wines al Fresco
Sonoma County pioneer, St. Francis Winery & Vineyards, expands its 2nd annual “Stars Under the Stars” outdoor film festival this year to six weeks and six classic films. Curated by celebrity sommelier and film aficionado Christopher Sawyer, the festival takes place every Thursday at the winery from July 14 to August 18. Christopher Sawyer and St. Francis Winery CEO and President Christopher Silva will host a short discussion of the evening’s film and suggested wine pairing before each screening. “Great movies and elegant wines,” asserts Silva, “transport us to another place and time – all the more so under the sky and the stars on a summer night in Sonoma.” “Big Night” opens this year’s festival on Thursday, July 14. Winner of the 1997 Independent Spirit Award for Best First Screenplay, “Big Night” tells the story of two Italian immigrants who open a restaurant on the New Jersey Shore in search of the American dream. Memorable for such lines as “To eat good food is to be close to God,” the movie revolves around preparations for a magnificent feast intended to save their failing restaurant. Academy Award winner “Moonstruck,” starring Cher and Nicholas Cage, screens Thursday, July 21. This intoxicating 1987 romantic comedy won three Academy Awards for Best Original Screenplay, Best
SCHEDULE OF ST. FRANCIS STARS UNDER THE STARS
• THURSDAY, JULY 14 – “Big Night” • THURSDAY, JULY 21 – “Moonstruck” • THURSDAY, JULY 28 – “Ferris Beuller’s Day Off” • THURSDAY, AUGUST 4 – “American Graffiti” • THURSDAY, AUGUST 11 – “Field of Dreams” • THURSDAY, AUGUST 18 – “Sideways”

Actress (Cher) and Best Supporting Actress (Olympia Dukakis). On Thursday, July 28, St. Francis pays tribute to the late director John Hughes by screening the iconic coming of age film “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” starring Mathew Broderick. This 1986 smash hit will be followed on Thursday, August 4, by “American Grafitti,” another classic coming of age film, this one set in 1962 and filmed in Sonoma County. Ranked by the American Film Institute as one of the 100 greatest movies ever made, American Grafitti was written and directed by George Lucas and stars Richard Dreyfuss and Ron Howard. Nominated for three Academy Awards, the 1989 baseball fantasy film “Field of Dreams,” starring Kevin Costner, Ray Liotta and Burt Lancaster, screens on Thursday, August 11. The festival closes on Thursday, August 18, with “Sideways,” arguably the most influential wine movie of all time. That evening St. Francis will pay tribute to Merlot, the much maligned varietal in this Academy Award winning film. Seating begins at 7:30 p.m., followed by the screening at 8 p.m. There is no charge for attending. Wine by the glass, charcuterie, popcorn, brownies and cookies will be available for purchase. For over 35 years, St. Francis Winery in Sonoma has hand-crafted fruit forward, luscious and full-bodied wines from superior mountain and valley vineyards in Sonoma County’s best appellations. While most renowned for its red varietals, including its Zinfandel (all old vines 60 to 110 years old), Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, St. Francis also produces a noteworthy Chardonnay. St. Francis Sonoma County wines are bursting with flavor and are recognized globally for outstanding quality and great value. An internationally-renowned sommelier, wine journalist, consultant, critic and public speaker, Christopher Sawyer travels the world following trends in wine and participating as a judge in international wine competitions. Sawyer earned the 2009 Best Sommelier in Sonoma County by The Wine Tasting Panel Magazine and is the recipient of many prestigious awards and industry honors. As the world’s first and only Film Festival Sommelier, Sawyer conceived and curated the wine experience throughout the Sonoma Valley Film Festival, including creatively pairing wine and food with films throughout the festival and at celebrity tributes. Christopher is currently sommelierin-residence at the Carneros Bistro & Wine Bar at The Lodge at Sonoma Renaissance Resort and Spa, where his wine list has received numerous awards.

Lake County Winery Association Hosts Upcoming Lake County Wine Adventure Weekend, July 30-31
Passport-style Event Offers Tours, Hors D’oeuvres, Entertainment, Tastings From More Than 25 Wineries
The seventh-annual Lake County Wine Adventure, a two-day passport event, will be held July 30-31, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. This year’s Lake County Wine Adventure is once again being hosted by the Lake County Winery Association. Adventurous wine enthusiasts will have an opportunity to discover the “new” wine country of California’s Lake County and sample distinct “high elevation” award-winning wines. Throughout the weekend, “wine adventurers” will taste wines from five of Lake County’s six distinct viticulture areas (AVAs) as they visit participating wineries. Adventure tickets can be purchased in advance for $35 each. Tickets also are available at every participating winery on the day of the event for $40 each. Each ticket is good for two days of activities and entitles the holder to wine tastings and hors d’oeuvres at each winery, a logo wine glass, art exhibits and entertainment. Event-goers will be entered into a raffle drawing when they leave their completed wine adventure tickets with the last winery they visit. A special grand prize will be awarded to the winner. Event organizers promote responsible hospitality and encourage all participants to designate a driver. Designated drivers are invited to enjoy non-alcoholic drinks, food and entertainment free of charge at each site compliments of the Lake County Winery Association. Designated drivers also can turn in their special buttons to be eligible for some fun Lake County prizes. For more information, call (800) 595-WINE (9463), (707) 3552762 or visit www.lakecountywineries.org For visitor information, contact the Lake County Visitor Information Center at 1-800-525-3743 or www.lakecounty.com.

Clay Shannon and Gregory Graham Team Together for First Annual Wine & Food Pairing Festival
Clay Shannon of Shannon Ridge Vineyards & Winery and Vigilance Winery & Vineyards is teaming up with his neighbor Greg Graham of Gregory Graham Wines to organize a day at their vineyards overlooking Anderson Marsh State Park. Named after the marsh that is near the vineyards, Cattails and Tules will be held on June 18 from noon to 3 p.m. and will be the first annual wine festival in the Red Hills of Lake County. Cattails and Tules is one of the few family-friendly wine events in California, and will offer a wide variety of entertainment for all ages, including hiking, music, food and wine pairings and even a scavenger hunt and horseshoes for the kids. The event will showcase local restaurants and chefs as they pair Vigilance and Gregory Graham wines with their creative cuisines. Throughout the day, a panel of professional chefs will judge the pairings in four different categories, and guests will be asked to vote for their favorite dishes. Guests who attend the day’s activities can choose to stroll between the two vineyards or enjoy the special accommodations provided onsite to get them from one vineyard to the other. Prizes, including a kayak and a two-night stay at the Vigilance Villa, will be given to raffle and scavenger hunt winners. The price for the event is $40 and proceeds will go towards the Konocti Regional Trails and Anderson Marsh Interpretive. Tickets may be purchased at Shannon Ridge, Vigilance, and Gregory Graham Tasting Rooms, online at Cattails & Tules 1st Annual Wine & Food Pairing Festival-Fundraiser or by calling (707) 998-9656.

Murrieta’s Well Kicks off New Season of La Luna Fridays
As the warm summer nights approach, Murrieta’s Well, a true gem in the heart of the historic Livermore Valley, is gearing up to launch its much-anticipated series of La Luna Fridays take place from 6 to 9 p.m. under the light of the full moon on the winery’s open terrace. The series will continue through the summer and fall seasons, landing on Friday’s closest to the full moon each month. Each evening will begin with Spanish-inspired tapas and Murrieta’s Well’s charming and nuanced blended wines, accompanied by live music. The event includes a complimentary tasting of coveted limitedrelease wines such as the ’03 White Meritage, ’09 Tempranillo, ’08 Anniversary Blend, ’09 Touriga Nacional and the ’06 Red Meritage. Select library wines such as the ’06 Souzao and the ’06 Cabernet Sauvignon will also be offered to guests, along with special event pricing on select Murrieta’s Well wines. For years, this series of events has created a relaxing atmosphere for wine-enthusiasts. The schedule of events include: tapas and wine service from 67:30 p.m., wine sales by the bottle until 8:45 p.m. and live music from 6 to 9 p.m. La Luna Fridays are $45, or $40 for club members. Reservations are required and can be made by calling (925) 456-2395 or visiting the website at www.murrietaswell.com. For a complete listing of events, visit www.murrietaswell.com/news-events/events and to join the club, visit www.murrietaswell.com/wine-club/club-benefits. Murrieta’s Well is an elite Livermore Valley wine estate defined by its distinctive blended wines, stunning location, and a rich heritage that began in California’s Gold Rush era. In 1990, Fourth Generation Winegrower Philip Wente of the Wente family and Winemaker Sergio Traverso merged old and new winemaking styles, reviving the historic winery established by Livermore pioneer Louis Mel. Surrounded by vineyards, the serene, idyllic location on the Arroyo Mocho Creek has a sense of timeless romanticism. The old stone winery building was originally built in the 1880s and is a gorgeous example of early California architecture. Local timber and rustic concrete made from gravel gathered from the nearby creek were used in the construction. Combined with Spanish design influences, the colorful past of Gold Rush era bandito Joaquin Murrieta, and ultrapremium wines, Murrieta’s Well is a captivating and unforgettable destination. Murrieta's Well’s flagship wines include the Whip and the Spur, handcrafted blends that highlight the best attributes of the unique Livermore Valley terroir. The Whip is a vibrant blend of aromatic estate-grown white grapes and The Spur is its red counterpart, a sumptuous blend of the best red varietals from Murrieta’s Well’s certified sustainable 92-acre vineyard. Both pay tribute to the property’s Bordeaux lineage, while the Zarzuela is a blend of Spanish and Portuguese varietals, modeled after the famous Spanish blends of Ribera del Duero and Rioja. Their small-production, tasting roomexclusive Los Tesoros de Joaquin wines round out an extraordinary portfolio. Murrieta’s Well is located at 3005 Mines Road in Livermore.
