I N T E L L I G E N C E F O R T H E W I N E C O N S U M E R

Is “white wine with fish, red wine with meat”

still the rule when pairing food with wine?

For some people, the task of pairing wine with food becomes a

study in the seemingly unlimited complexities of wine and food

anatomy. However, the simple rule of pairing white wines with fish

and red wines with meat serves as a good starting point for anyone

who enjoys wine with their meals. Of course, you can feel free to

break this golden rule and still create a great food-and-wine

experience. Two of my favorite exceptions to this rule are salmon with

Pinot Noir, and pork with lightly-oaked or unoaked Chardonnay.

When choosing a wine that matches well with food, rule number

one is that your own personal wine preference overrides all other

rules. So, if you absolutely love merlot, even with the most delicate

fish dish, then go ahead and drink it regardless of what you are

eating. If, however, you want to experience a marriage between food

and wine that in some cases can be described as heavenly, it may be

worthwhile to consider this golden rule of wine and food pairing and

some simple steps that can bring you closer to a wine-pairing

nirvana.

After first deciding on whether to have a red or white wine, the

next decision point comes: matching a full bodied wine with a robust

dish or a light wine with a delicate dish. Finally, if you really want to

get into the nitty-gritty of wine and food pairing, you can then match

the flavors in a wine with the dominant flavors in the dish (or sauce)

because there is either a shared component in them or there is a

complementary contrast between them. In some cases, the structure

of a wine – its crisp acidity, for example, or its dry, tannic backbone--

are features to also consider in the decision.

BY LEN NAPOLITANO

There are some food and wine pairings that are considered classic

marriages. These include steak with Cabernet Sauvignon, lamb with

Merlot, scallops with Chardonnay, caviar with sparkling wine, or

sweet Port-style dessert wine with salty Stilton cheese. Except for the

last example, these pairings follow the rule of red wine with meat,

white wine with fish. But they all match the robustness of the wine

with the food. They also are built upon the marriage of either similar

or contrasting flavors that complement each other on the palate and

make for a rich wine and culinary experience.

Why the Weather Matters This Year AND Next

Wherever you go in wine country, you’re bound to see

machinery, equipment, even the vineyards themselves, which is

oriented towards mitigating weather influences. Unlike row crops,

vineyards and orchards can’t pick up and makes changes every year,

but they can make changes to things around said vineyards. Why is

this necessary in the first place? Because weather problems can

affect not just this year’s crop but next year’s too, and damaging

vines through cold or heat can quickly become a far more expensive

proposition than the costs of installing solutions to keep the

problems at bay.

Why? Because vines aren’t like other annual crops. If you look

closely at a vine, you will see both this year’s and next year’s buds,

which is why weather damage can be such a problem: a grower is

forced to contemplate the loss of multiple years’ income. Inside each

bud are really small leaves, and from them come the leaves, canes,

shoots and grapes, and each bud has concentric layers, which is why

weather damage is along a continuum. Minor damage, generally

from frost, may reduce the yield a bit, but it’s the more severe

darkening, akin to frostbite, which is the real issue, guaranteeing a

crop loss of at least fifty percent, if not more. Equally, the phloem,

join us at

our tasting

room

BY JOSH STEIN

the “bark” on exterior of canes and vine trunks, can also be damaged

by cold, causing crop losses, too.

The best way to undestand winegrowing options for weather

mitigation is to “walk” through the vineyard throughout the year.

Winter cold is actually no issue because the vines are dormant,

which is why all fifty states have vineyards. Spring is when weather

has the most impact on two years’ crop because the weather often

flipflops quite quickly, and rain at an early point can be helpful to

bring temperatures up while later in the season causing crop damage

via hail or thunderstorms’ winds. Shattering of the blooming

flowers can disrupt clusters or keep them from being fertilized, yet

when faced with a frost event earlier in the year, rain is welcomed as

it brings the temperature up above freezing. Summer and fall heat

can also be an issue because too-high a temperature can cause vines

to shut down, shriveling or even sunburning grapes, and also

potentially killing the vine in the process.

There are actually lots of options for mitigation, and the best, as

you might expect, are set up so as to help solve more than one

problem. Believe it or not, something as simple as low trellising

versus high has an impact as far as weather goes as low trellises in

the wrong locales are more subject to frost damage, and higher

trellises can provide shade for adjacent rows. How the trellis is

trimmed in winter and early spring prior to budbreak is thus one

strategy, and there is projected to be a move back to “California

Sprawl” from the VSP “candelabra” currently seen all over as the

North Coast replants in the next few years for this reason: not only

does this provide different vine growth and brix gains, but it also

helps as regards frost or hail damage during April and May, when the

buds break and the vines flower.

Mechanical options abound, too. The winds machines, those

twirling engines and fans on poles; the “Inverted Sinks” or “Air

Dams,” which essentially turn the wind machine to provide a frost

sink to pull cold air down and away from vines on hillsides and

slopes; vertical sprinklers and micro-sprinklers, which can raise the

temperature or allow frozen water to encase and protect the vines;

and smudge pots, the gas fired heaters for the end of vineyard rows

which work in combination with wind machines—all are ways to

work in combination with the land to mitigate the negatives of

weather while allowing the “terroir,” the locational distinctiveness, to

still show through in the grapes and finished wines by “moving the

weather” since the vines really cannot. It’s not always easy or cheap,

but the results are worth it, no? Enjoy!

When spring invites you outdoors and you begin preparing for summertime in

Sonoma County, most locals know it’s time to peek at rodneystrong.com to see whose

appearing at the winery’s annual concert series, which ends Labor Day weekend. This

year, Rodney Strong builds upon its stellar reputation of legendary musicians with

first-timers Dwight Yoakam and B.B. King along with season opener Michael

McDonald and other top names in contemporary jazz. These days at the winery offer

a wonderful late afternoon of sunshine, music, wine and food; the winery, though,

encourages you to bring a sweater due to the famous Russian River Valley breeze that

cools the evenings and nights.

If you’ve visited the winery in recent months, you’re aware that this stalwart

Sonoma County winery is mixing up their wine offerings locally. Sure, you can rely

on their Sonoma County Chardonnay and Cabernet every day and find them in

nearly every store that sells wine. It’s almost as though they’ve provided a staple for

your wine rack. Did you know, though, that Rodney Strong makes a fantastically

delicious Syrah from Dry Creek Valley? How about their Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir?

Malbec anyone? Rodney Strong has a dedicated wine club that receives these special

wines throughout the year with an upside for locals (or visiting guests); specially

made wines that are available for tasting and purchase in their tasting room. There are

also three highly acclaimed Alexander Valley single vineyard Cabernets to taste and

their tasting room has been recently named as the best in Sonoma County according

to a Northbay biz reader’s pole.

WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK | ON THE COVER

The winery is also hosting a

number of events for its club

members as well as locals.

Count the recent trip to a San

Francisco Giants game as the

type of fun you can expect

along with the Zin and Pizza

party on their patio and you get

an idea of what Rodney Strong

has to offer this summer. And, if

you’re looking for summertime

later this year, say around

November, you’re in luck.

They’ll be part of a cruise to the

Caribbean that features great

musicians, themselves and

other Sonoma County wineries

and wine country chef, John

Ash.

We all enjoy and appreciate

what Rodney Strong brought to

Sonoma County more than 50

years ago, when he unlaced is

dancing shoes and started his

namesake winery. These days,

the team that carries the torch is

making sure you’re just as

entertained and that your thirst

for great wine is just as

quenched.

rANCH & viNeYArds

BY CHARLES NEAVE

If you like Northern California trivia, here are two questions: What

was the name of the ranch in the movie “Giant?” And, what does the

name reata have to do with ranching? The answers: the name of the

movie ranch was Reata; in Spanish the name translates as lariat. As you

sample the wines at the South Napa Valley winery with that name, it

should not be a surprise to discover that this property has been used to

farm and raise cattle for almost two hundred years.

Formerly part of General Mariano Vallejo’s historic Rancho Suscol, it

is, to this day, a 300-acre working ranch, where cattle still roam the hills

and sheep graze on the cover crops between terraced vines. The organic

honey that the 60,000 resident bees produce in the hives on-site is

available in the tasting room, along with their award-winning wines.

Like the wines themselves, the building that houses the tasting

room, state-of-the-art winery and special event space is handcrafted of

stone and different varieties of woods, from the tasting bar to the

exterior walls and interior beams. There is seating around a cozy

fireplace, an observation gallery overlooking the barrel room and

production area, and a spectacular wrap-around veranda that affords

sweeping views of the Napa Valley and San Pablo Bay, where days are

warm, nights cool and an ocean breeze whisks away the morning fog.

Conditions that are optimal for growing the Chardonnay and Pinot

Noir Reata is famous for.

The wines here artfully combine the different elements of the

winemaker’s craft to capture the true California expression of each of

the award-winning varietals. “We also believe that if it’s worth doing, it’s

worth doing right, with pride and craftsmanship that stands the test of

time.” Those wines include small lots of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay,

Viognier, Petite Sirah and Syrah.

To try the wines, step up to the bar. At the tasting bar there are a

number of tasting options, served by an enthusiastic staff. Beginning

June 1, Reata introduces a new food and wine experience showcasing

sophisticated comfort food. The winery chef uses produce from their

own organic, edible gardens along with seasonal local ingredients in

unique, rustic, yet refined, menus.

For the true wine lover, there are Barrel Tour and Tastings, a

memorable experience for up to a dozen guests. You and your friends

will have the opportunity to sample, among other wines, two that are

currently being crafted, all while learning about how the wines are

made.

The winemaking philosophy at Reata is simple: make great tasting

wines that remain true to their varietal character. To achieve that goal,

Reata provides its winemakers with the freedom and resources they

need to make each bottle of wine the best it can possibly be.

BERINGER VINEYARDS

Three Centuries and Counting of

Celebrated Napa Valley Winemaking

BY JOSH STEIN

Everything at Beringer Vineyards, just north of St. Helena, has been designed to

pull you in and offer relaxed enjoyment of a wide range of wines. It’s just that they’ve

been doing it continuously longer than anyone else in the Valley – since 1876, in

fact. Yes, three centuries’ worth of winegrowing have yielded some impressive

results. No winery or vineyard more thoroughly embodies the timeless appeal and

seductive flavor of Napa Valley than Beringer Vineyards, today guided by

Winemaster Emeritus Ed Sbragia and Winemaker Laurie Hook, who craft Napa

Valley wines that speak eloquently of the rich heritage of the Beringer Vineyard while

offering cutting-edge quality and contemporary elegance, displaying a single-minded

dedication and pursuit of excellence instilled by founder Jacob Beringer.

The design of the grove of trees and the landscaping which greets you as you pull

in silence the road noise of Highway 29, taking you back in time to the nineteenth

century. Founded by German brothers Jacob and Frederick, the gravity-flow and

then-steam-powered winery is supported by thousands of feet of hand-dug caves in

the hillside, which still provide a stable 58 degrees year-round. Declared a Historic

District on the National Register of Historical Places more than a decade ago, the

property also features what remains of a 200-year-old Leaning Oak, a designated US

Constitution Bicentennial Tree.

The winery offers two different, highly popular tours, so reservations by phone or

online are highly recommended, even if same-day. Offered eight times a day, the

thirty-minute Introduction to Beringer Tour guides visitors through the Old Stone

Winery and wine-aging tunnels,

highlighting Beringer’s long

history and commitment to

quality, tasting two wines during

the tour. The thrice-daily, hourlong

Taste of Beringer Tour

explores the Old Stone Winery

and wine-aging tunnels and visits

the demonstration vineyard

before proceeding to the Rhine

House Mansion for a sitdown

tasting of three wines paired with

small food bites.

Equal to the atmosphere are

the wines; the various tasting options and the cornicopia of bottlings

make Beringer Vineyards the amazing experience it is. The sheer

number of wines made is staggering, and there are literally too many

to count. Among the highlights are the annually released Private

Reserve Cabernet and Chardonnay wines, which were first made in

1977; and the Modern Heritage bottlings of Chenin Blanc, Riesling,

and Rosé, among others. The Knights Valley wines show off the

impact of volcanic soils on several Cabernets, a Meritage red blend,

Sauvignon Blanc, and a white blend while the Napa Valley releases

highlight at least a dozen different vineyard-designated Cabs, as well

as Sauvignon Blanc.

Your options for enjoying the wines are equally as allencompassing.

The Old Winery Tasting Room offers the

opportunity to sample the more popular releases while the 1883

Rhine House Mansion provides tastings of the reserve and limitedrelease

bottlings. For those looking for something special, the Private

Tasting, by appointment only, will take you deep into the library,

and the Private Club Tasting, personally led by the Wine Club

Concierge, goes even further. Large groups of ten or more can be

accommodated, too, with special individualized tastings arranged in

advance.

Events abound, too, and weekends through October bring

“Music on the Promenade” each afternoon, with live music from

Steel Jam, The Blues Box Bayou Band, Jazz Mirage or the acoustic

Sweet Burgundy; the website has a full schedule of who is playing

when. Grab a sandwich, pour some wine and enjoy the afternoon at

one of Napa’s oldest wineries. Memorial Day Weekend Passport

offers a progressive walk-around tasting highlighting the wine

portfolio matched with an inspired summer pairing by Beringer’s

Chef Maurine Sargent at each of the four tasting stations. Live music

and bocce are also part of the fun. Lastly, mark your calendar now

for Saturday, September 21st’s 2010 Private Reserve Cab release

celebration, when Winemaker Laurie Hook and Associate

Winemaker Chris Louton will share the first taste of the anticipated

2010 release of the flagship wine.

It’s that combination of lots of wines and lots of ways to enjoy

them which really makes Beringer stand out above the crowd and

which shows why they’ve been leading the way for as long as folks

have been coming to Napa for the best wines in the country. Check

out for yourself what others have known since the nineteenth

century – Beringer Vineyards is the best of the best. Enjoy!

Still Reminding Us All That “Old Napa” Never Left!

BY JOSH STEIN

Surrounded by Cabernet vines, on a knoll at the base of Spring Mountain overlooking the

upper-Valley, sits the 1878 Victorian mansion which houses St. Clement Vineyards. Originally built

by Fritz Rosenbaum, the man responsible for furnishing the homes of San Francisco’s Guilded Age,

the property went through a number of winemaking owners before it was purchased and renamed

in 1976 when local opthalmologist William Casey bought it and built the stone winery behind. The

name pays tribute to Casey’s ancestors who helped found the state of Maryland, the cross in the

St. Clement logo coming from that state’s flag. It’s hard to find a more magnificent example of the

“Old Napa” idea of a grand winery, and the experience lives up to that image.

The exterior is surrounded by gardens with picnic areas and shaded awnings, allowing for

spots to stop and savor: the porch and Hilltop Terrace – all harken back to a more timeless sense

of the Valley. Stepping into the house is stepping back in time, to an age of quiet kindnesses and

elegance. A grand staircase greets visitors upon entry, dividing the bottom of the house into the

two tasting rooms, and a small children’s playroom resides under the stairs themselves. One gains

a sense of the Valley’s history simply by looking around.

Equal to the surroundings, it’s the focus on vineyard location and matching site to varietal

which has given St. Clement the edge over others in the Valley. Long-term relationships have been

key in developing special vineyards from which to source the best grapes as no single property

can do it all. Carneros’s Abbott Vineyard is perfect for Chardonnay and Merlot because of its fog

and breezes. South Napa’s Bacigalupi Vineyard offers consistent growth for the Napa Cab bottling.

Verhey Vineyard in Atlas Peak provides ultra-concentrated Cabernet grapes while Gamble Ranch

Vineyard between Yountville and Oakville presents amazing Sauvignon Blanc. Rutherford’s Star

Vineyard supplies the backbone for the “Oroppas” Cabernet with St. Helena’s Bale Lane Vineyard

providing aromatic Sauvignon Blanc and Tournahu Vineyards two different Cabs because of

different soil types. The hills are equally showcased, with Howell Mountain’s Steinhauer Ranch

Look for us on Facebook and become a Fan!


WiNe CouNtrY tHis WeeK | WiNe CouNtrY NeWs

Continued

giving Cabernet and Mount Veeder’s Progeny providing Cabernet and

Syrah.

As should be clear from above, there are lots of wines to enjoy,

ranging from Napa Valley whites and reds to a half-dozen singlevineyard

bottlings of Cab, and at last count, at least eight of the

wines can be found only at the winery. The pedigree of each

varietal is showcased while not losing the sense of place for the

grapes. The Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc show careful,

detailed winemaking, and the Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

and Merlot are some of the best, especially at these pricepoints,

in the Valley. The single-vineyard Cabs really show off Napa’s

locations, with distinct differences in wines from the different

areas of the Valley. Additionally, the winery’s flagship release, the

“Oroppas” Cabernet, named for then-owners Sapporo, has been

showing off the finest of each vintage within St. Clement’s

combintorial wineblending for more than two decades.

Tasting and touring options accommodate both walk-ins and

appointments, and for groups or those looking to personalize the

experience, the winery requires you to make reservations so that

they’re able to make the visit memorable and special. The Hilltop

Terrace is the place with amazing views to pair with the wines, and

the time looking around the house gives real insight into Napa’s

past. There are two different clubs, with a reds-only option, too, so

you can have access to both the wines and these kinds of

experiences all year round. As you can see, there’s a lot going on up

just past St. Helena. Do yourself a favor: drop on by or pick up

your phone and give the kind folks at St. Clement a call right now –

you’ll be glad you did. Enjoy!

Only available at winery. Not applicable online. Offer expires 06/30/2013.

LIVERMORE VALLEY

Garré Wines – A Glass from the Past to Toast the Future

SUBMITTED BY GINA MOLINARO-CARDERA

Historians can trace the viticulture activity in the Livermore

Valley back to 1832. We can trace our family winemaking back to

the early 19th century as well to a small village outside of Genoa,

Italy.

A family photo hangs in our Tasting Room of Nonna “Rosa”

Garré with a glass of wine in her hand and her son-in-law, Gino

Molinaro, holding the jug of family wine. The picture was taken in

Glen Ellen at our family’s summer cabin in the early 1930s.

My dad, (Bob Molinaro, Garré Winery owner) tells the story of

Wine Country

his dad and uncles getting together every year to make their wine

for the family. The truck would bring red grapes from Napa to San

Francisco, where the families lived. The grapes would be crushed

and fermented and the wine would be made. My uncles learned

from their uncles who brought their knowledge and experience

from the Old Country to the New World.

Our heritage and family traditions are the backbone of Garré,

welcoming everyone who visits as family to enjoy the experience of

Old Italy. Stop by for a visit, you’ll be glad you did.

Share in our toast of “a glass from the past, a toast to the future.”

Mira Pinot Noir Named Wine Enthusiast

“Editors’ Choice” With 94 Points

the First u.s. Winery to experiment with ocean Aging receives ratings

Mira Winery, a Napa Valley winery that distributes through high

end restaurants and directly to consumers through

www.miranapa.com, recently announced that the 2009 “Stanly Ranch”

Pinot Noir was named Wine Enthusiast’s “Editor’s Choice” with a 94-

point rating and the 2010 Syrah was given a 92-point rating.

The May issue of Wine Enthusiast noted, “The flavors are

enormously complex, ranging from fresh raspberry jam and

cranberries to red currants and persimmons. Earthy cola, mushroom

and forest floor notes add complexity. The acid-tannin balance is just

about perfect. Good as it is, this compelling Pinot should develop

well over the next six years.”

“Pinot Noir is my favorite variety to work with,” said Gustavo

Gonzalez, Mira Winery winemaker. “It presents quite a challenge

both in the vineyard as well as the winery but the result in the bottle

is like nothing else. I'm thrilled my Mira Pinot Noir has received

recognition from an authority such as Wine Enthusiast.”

Mira received national attention in February as the first winery in

the United States to experiment with ocean aging. The winery

submerged four cases of 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon, in specially

designed cages, into the Charleston Harbor for three months. The

cages will be pulled at the end of May.

domestically-produced Tempranillos, Albariños, Garnachas,

Verdelhos and many more, from the wine regions of the western

Presidio in San Francisco on Sunday, June 23.

Two special Kickoff Seminars will take place prior to the event:

“¿Arizona? Growing Spanish Varieties in the American Southwest”

with panelists including Maynard James Keenan of Caduceus

Cellars, Tim White of Arizona Stronghold, Todd Bostock of Dos

Cabezas WineWorks and Kent Callaghan of Callaghan Vineyards

and “Defining American Tempranillo.” Kickoff Seminar attendees

receive early admission (1 p.m.) to the Grand Wine Tasting.

Tickets for the Kickoff Seminars and Consumer Tasting are

available at tapas13.eventbrite.com. Advance ticket prices are $60

for the Consumer Tasting only, or $95 for the Kickoff Seminars

with early admission to the Consumer Tasting. Tickets for the

Consumer Tasting only will be available at the door for $65.

The event will include a silent auction featuring special wines

and other great items.

Chef Hendrickson Sets the Standard at The Hess Collection

BY MIKE HYLAND

Trends often tend to come and go in Wine Country, and one of the

hottest trends these days is food and wine pairings (or wine and

cheese pairings) at numerous tasting rooms in both Sonoma and

Napa counties. One tends to forget that the venerable Hess Collection

on Mount Veeder in Napa has had an Executive Chef on staff since

2001 – some 12 years of enjoying wine, food and art all in one very

gorgeous setting.

Executive Chef Chad Hendrickson arrives each day on Mount

Veeder to lead the Hess culinary program, pairing wines from the

Hess Collection with recipes featuring fresh seasonal and sustainable

foods, most of which are grown right at the winery.

A graduate of the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New

York, Chef Chad began his career in Los Angeles, honing his skills at

such elite Hollywood restaurants as Café La

Boheme and Le Bel Age Hotel.

After moving to Santa Barbara County and

working at San Ysidro Ranch, he settled a little

further north in the Napa Valley where he

worked in the iconic Napa restaurant Brix and

at the legendary Auberge du Soleil, before

joining The Hess Collection in 2001.

At Hess, Chef Chad follows the tenets of the

Seafood Watch program, and has planted an

extensive organic garden just a few steps away

from the winery kitchen door. Fruit trees, olive

trees and an herb garden are also available on

property. The Hess Collection website regularly

features Chef Chad’s recipes and pairing

suggestions, and Hess Collector’s Club

members enjoy the opportunity to experience

his creations at regular wine club events.

For the Wine Country visitor, however, there are numerous

options at Hess Collection for a more comprehensive tasting

experience. While most of the tours require advance reservations, it is

certainly worth a phone call or email to enjoy any one of the tours

available throughout the year.

The most notable experience is the Tour of the Palate, available

only on Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 2 p.m. at a cost of $85 per

person. Guests will enjoy a guided tour of The Hess Collection

Contemporary Art Museum followed by a tasting of three current

release wines expertly paired with three exquisite creations from

Executive Chef Hendrickson. The Tour of the Palate menu, on a

recent visit to the winery, included a pan seared fennel dusted day

boat scallop, red watercress, frisee, grilled asparagus, Easter egg

radishes, navel oranges with a wildflower honey citrus vinaigrette

paired with the 2011 Napa Valley Chardonnay.

Next was country pork pâté and duck rillettes, Fiscalini Farms San

Joaquin Gold Wholegrain Mustard, and pickled onions paired with

36

Executive Chef Chad Hendrickson

the 2009 Artezin Napa Valley Charbono. The

tasting was completed with grilled Black

Angus beef skirt steak with brown clamshell

mushrooms, fava beans, Bloomsdale

spinach, roasted fennel, spring onion and

sweet pepper relish, paired beautifully with

the 2009 Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon.

Another highly recommended tour is the

Wine & Chocolate Experience which is

offered daily for $65 per person, and again,

with advance reservations. Enjoy a tour of

The Hess Collection, followed by a current

release wine tasting of four wines paired with

artisan truffles developed and handcrafted

with TCHO Chocolate by the Hess Pastry

Chef and Chocolatier, Emma Kate Veader.

This is a unique and educational experience

with one-of-a-kind chocolates that pair

exceptionally well with the wines.

If it is wine and cheese you are after, then by all means sign up for

the Wine & Cheese Pairing that takes place daily for $65 per person.

Guests will enjoy an educational wine production tour with your own

private host from The Hess Collection, followed by a current release

wine presentation paired with artisan cheeses served with seasonal

fruits and nuts selected by Executive Chef Hendrickson. Or, when the

weather’s nice, enjoy Wine & Cheese Tasting In The Garden

Courtyard. Taste underneath vines of wisteria, surrounded by

contemporary sculptures and beautifully landscaped gardens. Cost is

$10 for the Mount Veeder wine sampler and $30 for a six ounce

cheese plate with crackers, dried fruits and nuts, weather permitting.

The Hess Collection Winery and Art Museum are open daily for

public visits, tours and tastings. Groups up to eight people are invited

to taste four current release wines, many of which are available only at

the winery, for $10 per person. Larger groups are asked call (707)

255-8584 or email info@hesscollection.com to make a reservation.

Perched high on a hill and requiring an aerial tram ride to get to the winery, Sterling

Vineyards in Calistoga has given guests another phenomenal reason to visit with the addition

of their new Food and Wine Program. With stunning views, amazing wines and cozy tasting

rooms, once you’re at the top you will never want to leave!

Board the tram to the top and let your wine tasting journey begin. General admission is

just $25, including aerial tram, self-guided tour and tasting of five wines. Once you arrive,

you are warmly greeted with a glass of wine and then your self-guided tour begins. Sip and

savor their wines as you stroll past the barrel room, wander out by the crush pad or better

yet the upper deck overlooking the rolling hills lined with grapevines. For a small upgrade

fee, you can choose one of their seated tastings held in the main tasting room or Club Room.

Select from their Reserve Wine, Silver or Gold Experience and taste winery exclusives as

well as their single-vineyard and limited-release wines.

The Food and Wine Program at Sterling is now being featured in the main tasting rooms

including the Club Room and Reserve Rooms Thursday through Monday. Four Sterling

wines are perfectly paired with a selection of cheeses, charcuterie and accoutrements for a

cost of $25; wine tasting fee additional. Their current pairings feature Bellwether Farms

Carmody and Vella Mezzo Secco cheeses paired with the 2011 Winery Lake Chardonnay and

2007 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon. The Fatted Calf Rustique Pate and applewood smoked

duck breast is paired with the 2006 Reserve Merlot and 2011 Carneros Pinot Noir. On the

weekends, they serve this platter on the South View Terrace along with two other small

plates. A smoked filet of salmon served with a celery root and apple terrine with Pecorino

cheese and citrus Sauce and a Reuben Lasagna with Thousand Island Foam, red wine

sauerkraut and red wine syrup. Both small plates are individually priced at $15 and there

are several wines by the glass available for purchase to compliment the food offerings.

There are so many choices when visiting Wine Country and Sterling Vineyards is one that

should not be missed! Parents are encouraged to bring their children and binoculars and

activity books are available. This month they are featuring original art by two local artist’s

along the tour and as always have selections from the Sterling private art collection on view

as well as their Ansel Adams’ “the story of a winery” photo essay.

RASgalleries

BY CHARLES NEAVE

For many people a visit to Yountville in

the Napa Valley would not be the same

without a stop at RASgalleries. The art glass

gallery founded and operated by Ronda

Schaer is now celebrating its 23rd

anniversary and is a “must see” for art lovers.

With an unwavering focus on American

Art Glass it showcases the work of some of

the most renowned artists from the Bay Area

and throughout California, plus the Pacific

Northwest and the East Coast, among other

locales. Masterful glass techniques such as

mouth blown, lampworking, cast, cold

worked and fused glass are always on display

at the gallery, in forms such as vases, bowls

and sculpture. Specialty pieces like perfume

bottles (they have the largest collection of

hand-blown perfume bottles in Northern

California), stemware and paperweights are

also available.

A carefully chosen number of ceramic

artists have been selected to accompany the

glasswork and most recently original fine art

paintings are being displayed. In all, it makes

for a unique and memorable destination.

Like everything involving RASgalleries, they

are of the highest quality and reflect the fine

eye of the owner and the amazing talents of

the artists she represents. The gallery also has

a rotating display of one-of-a-kind sculptures

and regularly sponsors single-artist shows

and receptions that draw devotees of the

medium from around the nation. Details and

updates can be found on the gallery’s

website.

“I created RASgalleries with a singular

focus on original American art, primarily Art

Glass – my personal passion – and I’m proud

that after 23 years in the same Napa Valley

location, the passion remains!”

Wine education Lunches, receptions, dinners: Ask for details

The year was 1969. Neil Armstrong took his first steps on the moon; the New York

Mets were on their way to their first National League pennant; “Butch Cassidy and the

Sundance Kid” was topping the year’s box office sales. And an intrepid young

Midwesterner, yearning to answer the call of his ancestors, was scouring Napa Valley

for the perfect piece of land on which to plant the family flag.

Now, on the eve of Jay Corley’s 82nd birthday, he looks back at his 40+ years in the

Napa Valley and looks forward to the next generations taking the reins of the Corley

Family’s Monticello Vineyards.

A dream takes root

In 1969, the Stanford-educated Corley was running a successful publicly traded

company in Los Angeles, but wanted to trade his three-piece suit for overalls. After

all, farming was in his blood. “Every generation of my family for 400 years has been

farmers. As a boy, I loved spending time on my grandfather’s farm in southern Illinois.

I just always wanted to get back to farming.”

At the time, Corley’s friend, a wine shop owner in Los Angeles, was developing a

piece of property in Yountville. He invited Corley to come for a visit, and Corley was

hooked. “I would come up nearly every weekend for nine months to see what was

going on here. I would just roam around, get to know people, ask questions. There

weren’t many people around, but the ones who were,” as Corley lists the names of

contemporary Napa Valley pioneers and icons, “were very helpful.”

A self-described “Burgundy guy” with a taste for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay,

Corley was looking for a place where those varieties would thrive. He found it in an

80-acre prune orchard at the southern end of Napa Valley.

He liked the property’s proximity to the cooling breezes of the San Pablo Bay and the

fact that it sat next to the Napa River. “I didn’t think of being on Highway 29 to capture

visitors; I wanted to be on the river because I knew access to water would be essential.”

RECENT ACCOLADES – April 2013 Issue of The Wine Enthusiast:

• 2009 Corley reserve Cabernet sauvignon – 93 points and “Cellar Selection”

• 2009 Corley “state Lane” Cabernet sauvignon – 93 points and “Cellar Selection”

• 2009 “tietjen vineyard” Cabernet sauvignon – 92 points

• 2009 Corley “Yewell vineyard” Cabernet sauvignon – 91 points and “Cellar Selection”

Once the property was cleaned up, Corley didn’t cut corners

planting the vineyard. “We used all of the new technology coming

out of Davis. We tested the soil everywhere, and we drilled holes in

the ground to see how the water was flowing. Then we planted the

vines closer together than most people were doing in those days to

stress them.”

the Next generation

Things went well enough those first years to make Corley think,

“We can do this.” Soon the successful winegrower wanted to build a

winery. As a graduate student years earlier, Corley had written a

thesis on starting up a winery. He opened his desk drawer, dusted

off the old thesis, and got started.

All seven of Corley’s children helped out at the winery during

their high school years. But Corley encouraged them to go off,

experience the world outside of the winery where they had grown

up, and then come back if they wanted.

Kevin Corley, now Winegrower and President, became a

successful banker in Los Angeles. Stephen Corley, now the winery’s

Director of Sales and Marketing, was a CPA who worked at the

accounting firm KPMG before he came back to the winery in 1997.

Chris Corley, the youngest of the three, has worked at the winery

the longest. Initially aiming to be a marine biologist, Chris

eventually decided he would “rather drown in wine than sea water.”

He worked in the cellar under other winemakers for 13 years before

he earned enough stripes to become Head Winemaker in 2002.

Now the three brothers form a harmonious management team.

“Three of them is better than one of me,” says the senior Corley.

the Jefferson Connection

Jay Corley was a great admirer of Thomas Jefferson, who was not

only a founding father but also America’s first great connoisseur. He

honored the third President by naming the winery Monticello

Vineyards - after Jefferson’s mountaintop home in Charlottesville,

Virginia. In 1984, the Corleys built the Jefferson House, a very close

replica of Monticello, on the Home Ranch that is now used as office

space and to entertain guests. The four acres of grounds

surrounding the Jefferson House are comprised of the same trees,

shrubs and flowers Thomas Jefferson planted at Monticello.

savor the taste, experience the Hospitality

In the quaint, rustic tasting room, the staff pours a little bit of

everything the Corleys produce from 80 acres of vines on the Home

Ranch in the Oak Knoll District as well as four other estate

vineyards in Napa Valley. With 30 vintages under their belts, the

Corleys like to show off their library wines in reserve tastings in the

Jefferson House. Slip into the comfortable black leather chairs and

enjoy a flight of our wines, “People come for one or two wines,”

Stephen Corley says, “but they usually leave with it all!”

Explore The Heritage Wine Trail at Four Iconic Wineries

BY MONICA L. DASHWOOD

With so much to do and see in the wine country, the research

involved in planning your day can be overwhelming. The Heritage

Wine Trail, a full-day tour and tasting package, takes the guess work

out of your travel plans and offers a memorable excursion from

Carneros to Calistoga that is sure to satisfy the senses!

For only $99 (a value of over $150), from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., you

will experience tours and tastings at four iconic wineries, Acacia

Vineyard, Beaulieu Vineyard, Provenance Vineyards and Sterling

Vineyards, including an authentic wine country picnic lunch.

The tour begins at Acacia Vineyard, where you will walk through

their lush vineyard and end with a visit to their tasting room.

Winemaker Matthew Glynn will share his winemaking knowledge

and Acacia’s unique 32-year history. You will taste a few of their

favorite wines, not commonly found outside the winery, as well as

select wines that have been awarded 90+ points.

Continue on to Beaulieu Vineyard, to tour the most historic part

of their winery, built in 1885. A wine guide will take you through

their 100-year-old Redwood Tank Forest to the Heritage Room where

you will sample wines from French and American oak barrels and

two of their current releases, including the iconic Georges de Latour

Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, made at BV since 1936.

From there, experience the passion of Provenance Vineyards as a

Warren St

Jefferson St

wine club member for the day with exclusive tastings of three current

releases followed by a pairing of Merlot chocolate sauce and port.

The tour ends with a big finish at Sterling Vineyards as you

ascend on an aerial tram overlooking panoramic views of one of the

most dramatic wineries in California. You will be greeted with a glass

of wine as you follow the winemaking process from grape to glass.

You will be guided from the barrel room to one of the terraces, to sit,

relax and taste three of their limited-production wines.

The Heritage Wine Trail promises a fun filled day from start to finish!

The Heritage Wine Trail is offered daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

For more information, go go www.HeritageWineTrail.com, call

Robert Mondavi Winery Kicks Off

44th Annual Summer Concert Series

This June, Robert Mondavi Winery

kicks off its 44th annual Summer Concert

Series with a festival featuring five top

musical acts. With June 18 marking what

would have been the 100th birthday of

Robert Mondavi, country singer and

songwriter Martina McBride will begin

the series with a performance that

celebrates Robert Mondavi’s contributions

to the wine industry throughout the Napa

Valley and beyond. Now a muchanticipated

wine country tradition, the

annual concert series began in 1969 by

Margrit Mondavi.

In celebration of the 100th birthday of Robert Mondavi and presented by Pandora Jewelry, the festival

begins June 29 with the “Cen’tanni” performance and fireworks show, headlined by Martina McBride.

McBride, recipient of a Grammy and four CMA Female Vocalist of the Year trophies, brings more than

two decades of country music tradition to the Napa Valley. The concert series continues on July 6 with

the “Cool Climates of Carneros” concert, headlined by alternative rock group Lifehouse. With a number

of hit Billboard singles, including “Hanging by a Moment,” Lifehouse’s performance will showcase old

favorites and a collection of songs from its newly-released album, “Almeria.” On July 12, the “A Night

Like No Other: Celebrating Fume Blanc” concert will welcome pop-rock star Huey Lewis. Raised locally

in Marin County, Lewis (of the platinum-record-selling group Huey Lewis and The News) brings his

American rock style to the winery as part of the “Sports” 30th Anniversary Tour. On July 13, Robert

Mondavi Winery welcomes Bruce Hornsby and the Noisemakers for the “Spotlight on Oakville”

celebration. Grammy-winning songwriter and former Grateful Dead member Bruce Hornsby brings his

Noisemakers group to Napa for an expressive, soulful performance, displaying the group’s eclectic and

multi-genre encompassing sounds. The final performance of this year’s Summer Concert Series takes

place on July 20 with ZZ Ward and Delta Rae for the “Ode to To Kalon” celebration. Blues-influenced

singer-songwriter ZZ Ward and alternative-pop Americana folk group Delta Rae co-headline to combine

their multifaceted sounds and energetic personalities.

All performances begin at 7 p.m. and are held at the Robert

Mondavi Winery on Highway 29 in Oakville, Napa Valley. Tickets

are on sale now and prices vary by performance. For additional

information and to purchase tickets, including General Admission,

Reserved and Dinner seats, visit www.robertmondaviwinery.com,

Remède Spa at The St. Regis San Francisco Partners with

Matanzas Creek Winery to Unveil Beauté de Terroir Experience

san Francisco’s only Forbes Four-star spa Creates unique Beauty

& Culinary Package inspired by the Natural Bounty of Wine Country

Remède Spa at The St. Regis San Francisco, the city’s only Forbes

Four-Star spa, has announced a partnership with Matanzas Creek

Winery in Santa Rosa that offers guests a new signature spa package

showcasing the exceptional beauty benefits and epicurean delights of

wine country. Designed to foster a greater harmony of body, mind

and spirit, Beauté de Terroir taps the bounty of Sonoma County’s

Matanzas Creek estate to create an exceptional experience that

indulges all the senses. Spa guests will taste, smell and feel the

distinct terroir of Matanzas Creek while enjoying a body scrub, wrap,

massage and pedicure complemented by a three-course wine and

cheese pairing.

“We are thrilled to partner with Matanzas Creek Winery, an

establishment that is well-aligned with our dedication to inner

harmony and everyday health,” said Deborah Larsson, director of

Remède Spa. “The new Beauté de Terroir is an exciting new offering

that uniquely connects guests to California’s natural bounty through a

genuine vineyard-to-spa experience.”

Launching in June 2013, the Beauté de Terroir experience will

feature ingredients sourced directly from Matanzas Creek Winery’s

celebrated terroir, pairing the serenity and expertise of Remède Spa

with the richness of Sonoma County. Upon arrival, guests will

refresh their palates with a pure white grape juice, served with fresh

cut grapes. The spa experience will begin with Matanzas Creek’s

hydrating and smoothing Lavender Salt Scrub – a combination of sea

salt, shea butter, ground chamomile, lavender essential oil and a hint

of musk. A deep-cleansing, nourishing body wrap follows,

showcasing grape seed oil and lavender fresh from the Matanzas

Creek estate. The wrap will then be washed away with a revitalizing

Vichy shower, leaving the skin noticeably softer and optimally

from local sustainable vineyards that use grape skins and seeds for

milling into flour for artisan baking. Each guest will also receive an

exclusive gift bag that includes fresh grape seed body balm, known

for leaving skin soft and smooth.

St. Francis Launches New Menu, Culinary Programs

experience true farm- and vineyard-to-table dining against sonoma’s majestic landscape

Leading the trend of winery-based culinary programs, St. Francis

Winery & Vineyards unveiled several new offerings this month. “We

were among the first wineries to develop a culinary program, as our

guests became more and more interested in experiencing and learning

about the close relationship between wine and food,” notes

Christopher Silva, President & CEO of St. Francis Winery &

Vineyards. New spring/summer culinary programs at St. Francis

include:

• Seasonal Spring/Summer Wine and Food Pairing Menu

• Private Estate Dining

• Estate Vineyard Tour & Tasting

seasonal spring/summer Wine and Food Pairing

Led by Executive Chef David Bush, one of the very few dedicated

winery chefs in the region, the acclaimed five-course Wine and Food

Pairing highlights the seasonal bounty of Sonoma County, utilizing

fresh ingredients from the winery’s two-acre organic garden. Paired

with St Francis’ 100% Sonoma County wines, the pairing is hosted by

a St. Francis wine expert, and presented in a relaxed, quintessential

wine country setting. The new menu offered five days a week,

includes dishes such as: Sichuan-Style Slow Roasted Pork Shoulder

with fava beans, fava leaves, charred yams, grilled spring onion,

upland cress, and roasting jus paired with a 2010 Three Valleys

Zinfandel.

Private estate dining

A more intimate experience for groups of 8-16, guests are now able

to reserve the winery for an entire evening and dine on a memorable

seven-course prix fixe dinner paired with St. Francis’ iconic wines.

The evening begins with wine on the Syrah Patio overlooking the lush

Sonoma Mountains. Dinner follows in the winery’s private dining

room with sweeping views of estate vineyards.

estate vineyard tour & tasting

Offered weekdays, this 40-minute guided walking tour begins at

the St. Francis Visitor Center and extends throughout the Wild Oak

Estate Vineyard and two-acre sustainable vegetable garden. This indepth

tour examines the lifecycle of the vineyard, soil composition,

terroir and sustainable farming practices to illustrate what makes

Sonoma Valley ideally suited for the production of world-class wines.

In addition, guests learn about the seasonal ingredients used in the

winery’s Wine and Food Pairings, from melons and squashes to

cardoons, kale and fresh herbs. The tour concludes with a wine

tasting and discussion in the Reserve Wine Club Room.

56

Open Table diners recently recognized St. Francis as one of their

favorite spots in the SF Bay area. For more information on St. Francis’

culinary programs, including pricing, timing, reservations and menus,

CHArLie tsegeLetos

Cline Cellars

BY MIKE HYLAND

Cline Cellars winemaker and director of winemaking, Charlie Tsegeletos’s interest in wine

goes back to his childhood and was inherited from his great-grandfather, Guippe Guidotti,

who grew grapes and made wine in the Guerneville area of Sonoma County back in the 1930s.

A 1979 graduate of UC Davis, Charlie began his winemaking career as an apprentice at

Pendleton Winery when he was 24 years old. In the 1980’s he held winemaking positions at

Hacienda Wine Cellars, D’Agostini Winery and Glen Ellen Winery, where he would remain for

some 15 years.

He joined Cline Cellars in 2002 and is responsible for winemaking and production for the

winery’s Cline, Oakley and Jacuzzi Family Vineyards brands.

“Over the years, we have added more wines to the Cline portfolios, with still more to

come,” says Charlie. “Our core wines at Cline stay the same – Zinfandel, Syrah, Mourvedre and

Pinot Noir, but we also like to experiment and create some red blends that truly rock the boat.

Then there are the Rhône varietals that owner Fred Cline pioneered in the Sonoma Valley years

ago – Syrah, Viognier, Marsanne and Roussanne.”

Tsegeletos is producing about 25 different wines for both Cline and Jacuzzi, which

obviously keeps him and his winemaking team of four members and a cellar staff of another

12 people pretty busy. And then even more staff is added to the mix when harvest and bottling

takes place.

As for his winemaking philosophy, Charlie often lets the grapes guide his style. He works

WiNe CouNtrY tHis WeeK | soNoMA vALLeY

Continued

closely with the vineyard managers to ensure that

varieties are planted in locations that will provide

optimal acid and sugar levels and express the true

varietal characteristics. Then he hones his

winemaking skills to guide the wine toward his

chosen style. His red wines are big and dark with

lots of fruit concentration and delicate oak

nuances, while his white wines are always bright,

crisp and fresh.

“A visit to Cline Cellars historic setting in the

Carneros region of Sonoma County reveals

Charlie’s basic varietals, Zinfandel (there are seven

of them), Syrah, and Pinot Noir; the various Rhône

wines, and as a bonus, there is Nancy’s Cuvee

Sparkling Wine, which is an excellent way to start

a tasting at Cline.

An important historical side note, the site of the

Cline Cellars winery and tasting room is also the

site of the last original Spanish Mission to be

established in California. The mission was

dedicated on July 4, 1823, and later built at its

present location in downtown Sonoma.

In addition to his duties at Cline, Oakley and

Jacuzzi, Charlie is also a professional wine judge as

well as a member of the Board of Directors of the

Sonoma Valley Vintners and Growers Association.

He is also an avid snow skier and motorcyclist. He

resides on an old chicken ranch in the hills of

Sonoma with his wife and daughter and assorted

animals.

seven-course food & wine pairing experience highlights spring’s offering

The Wall Street Journal has (twice) called it “the best value in wine country”

and Open Table’s recent list of the top ten Wine Country Diners’ winners features

the Mayo Reserve Tasting Room at number one, ahead of such full service area

stalwarts as The French Laundry, Farmhouse Inn & Restaurant, the Restaurant at

Meadowwood and Dry Creek Kitchen.

So what’s the big deal? Just an incredible food pairing of seven gourmet treats

coupled with seven delicious wines, and all for the unbelievable price of $35 per

person ($25 for club members). Mayo Family Reserve Room Chef Clayton Lewis

has announced a new spring menu. The seven-course, sit-down menu celebrates

spring with locally produced ingredients now coming into production along with

seven Mayo Family Winery wines to demonstrate the various ways food and wine

can compliment one another. “Pairing our wines with great food is something our

family has been doing since we started in 1993 with our first vintage,” says Jeff

Mayo.

The sit-down Reserve Room food and wine pairing is offered Thursday

through Monday, 10:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. and cost $35. Reservations are not

required, but recommended. The Mayo Family Reserve room is located at 9200

Sonoma Highway in the village of Kenwood in Sonoma Valley. For more

Sonoma Plaza, a National Historic Landmark, is

originally home to the last of the chain of 21

California missions. Throughout its colorful

history – including the Bear Flag Revolt where the

California state flag was first raised in 1842 – the

small-town epicenter is now home to some 25

gourmet dining establishments, 40 boutique shops

and art galleries as well as 18 unique tasting

rooms. A well-known tourist destination, visitors

come to Sonoma to experience the idyllic Wine

Country lifestyle. Sure, doublewide tractors may

grace the two-lane Highway 12, wide-open

ranchlands blanket the valley between towns, and

wooly sheep keep weeds and grasses minimal in the

vineyards. But, no doubt, you will also find

countless award-winning wineries and world-class

restaurants in Sonoma. Sonoma is all about life,

about taste and enjoying each day.

Chris Loxton is thrilled to release his first tawny Port style wine to

wine club members. Each year he’s been putting aside a barrel of his

Port wine made from Syrah grapes grown here at the winery so that it

can age into what is known as a “Tawny” style. He started the

program with the inaugural vintage in 2002 and each year he’s

topped the barrels with the current vintage wine. That initial barrel

from 2002, the bottled version of which won “Best Port in Sonoma

County” at the Harvest Fair, now contains small amounts of each

successive vintage. Therefore, it now contains some of the wines that

have awarded “Best of Port in Show” three times and runner-up for

“Best Port in Show” twice! He has waited ten years since this wine

was originally put into barrel and it was finally bottled in December

2012.

The wine is called “Décarda,” which is Portuguese for a decade, to

celebrate its ten years in barrel. It is the first of Loxton’s Tawny Ports

to be bottled with a production just yealding 550 bottles. This wine is

currently available to the wine club on a one bottle allocation limit.

To celebrate this release there’s a short video about the wine.

The inspiration came many years ago at one of his father’s Wine

and Food Society dinners where

he had the privilege of tasting

wines presented by the winemaker

for the Australian firm Hardy’s,

who presented vintage and tawny

style Ports that were originally

from the same tank. One had been

bottled after 18 months (Vintage)

and the other at 20 years (Show

Tawny).

This is a wine to sip after

dinner, by itself or maybe with

blue cheese, while thinking of

what has happened over ten years.

Age has lead to some browning

and lightening of color (just as a

cut apple goes brown, hence the

tawny descriptor), has also given

incredible richness to the wine

and this leads to a warm and

lingering finish.

Mendocino County in Northern California is noted for its

distinctive wines and the independent spirit of its winemakers. True

to their pioneering nature, ten diverse vintners from separate regions

of Mendocino County have united to create and launch their own

collaborative wine collection. “CORO” means ‘chorus’ in Italian and

Spanish and Coro Mendocino is now releasing the 10th Anniversary

Coro Wine.

Coro Mendocino is a class of ultra-premium wines made to

showcase the rich heritage and unique characteristics of Mendocino

County. Made entirely in Mendocino County from County fruit, each

Coro wine shares a juried quality standard and a trademarked

package.

Mendocino Makes History with CORO Wine 10th Anniversary Release

Winemakers Create Ten Ultra-Premium Wines Using Only Mendocino County Fruit

Anderson Valley Winegrowers Host

16th Annual Pinot Noir Festival


Tickets are almost sold out for the 16th annual Anderson Valley

Pinot Noir Festival, May 17-19. The event, which is put on by The

Anderson Valley Winegrowers Association (AVWA), will feature an

expanded grand tasting that highlights 45 producers pouring only

Anderson Valley Pinot Noir and Pinot Noir rosé.

The Pinot Noir Festival weekend kicks off on Friday, May 17 with

a day-long technical conference aimed at members of the trade and avid

Pinot consumers. Conference topics include: the Navarro River watershed,

a Wiley Vineyard focus tasting led by owner Brad Wiley, a history

of Pinot Noir clone 828 by Rusty Gaffney of PinotFile, a tasting of white

Pinot Noirs, barrel selection strategies for Pinot Noir, and more.

The technical conference will be followed by a casual, outdoor

barbecue at Scharffenberger Cellars, featuring plenty of BBQ delicacies,

a live band, and Pinot Noirs from a variety of producers.

After a press tasting on Saturday morning, the grand tasting will

again take place in the vineyards at Goldeneye Winery in Philo. Pinots

will be paired with grilled lamb, local cheeses, wood-fired pizzas from

Piacci Pizza in Fort Bragg, Pinot Noir chocolate by Essence by Chocolate,

and other delicious bites. There will also be live music and a silent

auction to benefit the valley’s only medical facility, the Anderson Valley

Health Center in Boonville.

On Saturday evening, May 18, local wineries will host four winemaker

dinners in Anderson Valley and on the Mendocino Coast. This

year’s dinners include: Roederer, Handley and Esterlina at Roederer

Estate; Lazy Creek and Navarro at Aquarelle restaurant; Goldeneye,

Baxter and Fulcrum at The Little River Inn; and Husch and Greenwood

Ridge at The Philo Apple Farm.

The weekend will conclude on Sunday, May 19 with open houses

at Anderson Valley wineries, featuring special tastings, educational

talks, music and food.

For tickets or more information, call, (707) 895-WINE.

This is a milestone year for Coro, and this 10th anniversary

launch could not be done in any other part of the world,” said Dennis

Patton, Winemaker for Golden Wines. “We actually taste each other’s

wines and share constructive advice. That is remarkable in the wine

world. We did this to prove that we can and do work together in true

collaboration, and that our wines are world-class.”

According to Scott Schneider, the President and CEO for Visit

Mendocino County, Coro is a central part of the County wine and

personality story. “We are all about unique experiences, wine and

people. Coro is a living example of this lifestyle and community. And

of course, it is an industry first.”

Each Coro wine must contain between 40-70% Zinfandel and

adhere to strict production protocols set by Consortium Mendocino.

The 2010 vintage was made by ten wineries: Brutocao, Claudia

Springs, Fetzer, Golden, Mendocino Vineyards, McFadden, McNab

Ridge, Parducci, Philo Ridge, and Ray's Station.

The Coro Tenth Anniversary Collection will formally launch on

Saturday, June 22 at the Little River Inn in Mendocino County. An

exclusive VIP Tasting of Library Magnums will happen on Friday,

June 21, also at Little River Inn. For more information, visit

www.coromendocino.com or call (707) 937-5942.

Lone Oak Lodge – Clean, Affordable, Convenient

BY LAURA NESS

A cozy place to stay in Monterey is the Lone Oak Lodge, on North

Fremont Street, just off Highway 1, past the Monterey Fairgrounds.

This is your basic old-fashioned style motel that makes car camping

easy. You pull up to your room, unload, boom, you’re done. All onestory

units, with pleasant bathrooms, clean, comfortable and

equipped with wireless everywhere. Fresh flowers in each room are a

nice touch, and each unit has a fridge and a coffee maker – thank

goodness!

Creature comforts are important, and this quiet, easy-to-find and

easy-to-love, family-friendly lodge has decent towels, great water

pressure and plenty of space to stash all your stuff. The fireplaces in

some rooms are quite cozy. Everything is clean and in working order.

The best part about Lone Oak is location, location, location: you’re

only minutes away from all the sights and sounds of nearby Monterey

Peninsula and Pebble Beach, but you don’t hear any of it from the

rooms, thanks to layout and setback off the highway. There are several

restaurants in proximity, including a serviceable Chinese for takeout,

and drug store, bottle shop and breakfast spot within walking

distance if you’ve had enough time behind the wheel. You seriously

can’t beat Lone Oak for value, convenience, comfort and quiet. A

good nights’ sleep is what you need most after an exhausting day

touring 17 Mile Drive, playing a round on a championship golf

course, gazing at the wonders of the deep at the Monterey Bay

Aquarium, playing tourist on Cannery Row and Fisherman’s Wharf

and winetasting and people watching on the storied streets of Carmel.

Featuring family suites, single rooms and king suites with in-room

spas and fireplaces, an on-site indoor Jacuzzi, dry sauna, exercise

equipment, Scuba Diver rise area, plus an outdoor barbecue area

make the Lone Oak Lodge an ideal home base when you’re in the

Monterey area.

Celebrate National Great Outdoors Month

in June, National Picnic Month in July

Hyatt Carmel Highlands overlooking Big sur Coast

invites You to take a Hike and Let them show You the Beauty!

Hyatt Carmel Highlands Overlooking Big Sur Coast, Carmel’s

quintessential destination retreat, is celebrating National Great

Outdoors Month in June and National Picnic month in July with a

new hiking and picnic package! Guests will meander beautiful coastal

trails experience scenic views, flora, fauna and fun with an

experienced Big Sur guide. The chefs have prepared a picnic lunch

sure to match the incredible scenery of the Big Sur coastline. The

keepsake picnic backpack will forever remind you of this stunning

experience. Package prices begin at $600. (Package available

beginning June 1, 2013)

Hikes are led by Stephan Copeland, a Big Sur hiking expert. For

the past 32 years Copeland has been in the business of providing

guided hikes and walks, for people of varying capabilities, into the

breathtaking Big Sur Wilderness. Let him introduce you to the

migrating California Grey Whale, where you can get wet from the

spout; listen to the sounds of cascading water flowing down a canyon

laced with 7- and 8-hundred-year-old California Coastal Redwoods;

explore the most secret of water falls and so much more. One of the

guided hikes will take you to the only forest in Big Sur where the only

thing between you and the sky are at least 10 thousand Monarch

Butterflies.

Hyatt Carmel Highlands offers several different hiking excursions:

the Walk of the Married redwoods

As one drives to the trail head, it would be impossible not to

notice the incredible vistas this journey through the Big Sur hillside

offers. The actual 2- to 2.5-hour walk, mostly in flat terrain, traverses

one of the lushest canyons within the area, accompanied all the way

by the sights and sounds of rushing water. One can truly get a feel for

the serene beauty of Big Sur. This walk also features a very special

visual surprise provided by Nature herself … let them show it to you.

robinson Jeffers Walk

If the contrast between green and blue excites you, this walk is for

you. This walk is the best example of Robinson Jeffer’s famous quote,

“Big Sur is the greatest meeting of land and sea in the world.” Hikers

will first make their way up through a lavishly twisting canyon,

overlooking terracing waterfalls, while visually experiencing shades of

green that one never knew existed, eventually making their way to

one of the most beautiful waterfalls in the world. This walk clearly

offers a much more intimate relationship with the nature of the area.

After leaving the canyon, head down to the sea, where the land seems

to melt into the ocean; and where the seal, otter and occasional

humpback whale might be observed. Never will you see such various

shades of blue.

70

Meditation Walk

For the guest that is striving to attain that inner peace that only

meditation can provide, consider the Meditation Walk, A three-hour

experience that starts with a little yoga. Then off to the trail head a 30

minute drive back into the wilderness, with views of the California

Coast that only the Red Tail Hawk sees. Upon arrival at the trail head,

walkers will embark upon the trail and traverse the Little Sur River

for one hour; silently, while trying to attain oneness with the forest.

After one hour, break for lunch. At this time conversation is

permitted. After lunch, a little more yoga, and then the return to the

trail head, once again, silently. The rewards from this experience last

eternally.

Bluff trail

This particular walk glides above the ocean about 80 feet from the

sea, on a bluff where guests will walk south observing a myriad of

both plant and animal life. The smell of the sea coupled with that of

California sage and a hint of fennel, are overpowering on this walk

that will follow a path to the seashore. A good part of this walk is

spent discovering the various coves that are secretly tucked away

throughout this beach walk.

Waterfall Walk

This particular trek introduces you to the Big Sur River, the largest

river in the area and specifically shows you two great secluded

getaways; a perfect place for a picnic with someone you really care

about. If the river is cooperating, hikers will cross it and search out

some beautiful meadows where one might find a fallen hawk or owl

feather. At this point, head east to view a fairly recent waterfall

stunning to the eye. For the person who might want a tad more

exercise, Hyatt Carmel Highlands offers one hike, rather than walk.

This hike combines the best ingredients of all the walks in that it

provides the added stimulus of sight from 500 feet of elevation! The

beauty of Big Sur from this elevation is unparalleled.

For more information regarding Hyatt Carmel Highlands new

travel package available beginning June 1, 2013, visit

www.hyattcarmelhighlands.com or call (831) 620-1234.
