What is a ‘hot’ wine?

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

by Len Napolitano

Despite its connotation for things that are trendy and in demand,

when applied to wine, the word “hot” is definitely not one that makes

winemakers feel warm and fuzzy.

A “hot” wine is one whose alcohol content is over the top. Along

with other components of fruitiness, tannin and acidity, alcohol is a

necessary part of every great wine, but when it dominates a wine’s

impact on the palate, it causes a burning sensation on the tongue, or

lips or on the whole palate. When severe, it can be quite jarring to the

unsuspecting wine drinker.

Of all the components that make up a bottle of wine, alcohol is

perhaps the one that makes the biggest impact in the final product.

Because, by manipulating the amount of alcohol in the wine, a

winemaker can give a dry wine an impression of sweetness, or make a

thin wine feel more full-bodied.

There are ways in which a wine’s alcohol level can be

manipulated – one takes place outside in the vineyard and the other

inside the winery.

In the vineyard, grapes that are left longer on the vine before

picking, that is, increasing its “hang time,” will naturally develop

more sugar. And it’s the sugar inside the grapes that gets converted

and search “Wineology.”

into alcohol during fermentation. So, if you start fermentation with a

high percentage of sugar content in the juice, you end up with more

alcohol when the fermentation finishes.

In the past ten years, the average amount of alcohol in wines has

quietly been creeping upward. Not long ago, the average Chardonnay

contained 11.5%-12.5% alcohol, but today it’s quite normal to see

13.0% or more. And, the issue is not limited to just Chardonnay.

From Fumé Blanc to Zinfandel, the trend is evident in most

California wines.

It’s hard to determine if the wine producers are simply responding

to consumer demand for more robust wines or acting on a desire to

imitate the higher alcohol levels in wines that have been consistently

getting highest scores from many respected wine critics and

publications. Whichever the reason, the trend is something the wine

consumer should be concerned with. However, some wine producers

are making an effort to control the growth of high-alcohol wines.

Inside the winery, winemakers who feel that a wine doesn’t

necessarily get better with more alcohol take steps to actually reduce

the alcohol content in wines that ferment to excessive heights. A

mechanical process, called spinning cone technology, can be used to

remove a pre-determined amount of alcohol from wine in order to

make it more balanced, food-friendly and exhibit more noticeable

delicacy and nuance. Another method of reducing alcohol is to add

water to the fermenting juice, although this approach is not often used.

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. More information is on his website, www.wineology.com.

New Tasting Room and Marketplace

Opens its Doors for a Taste Of Italia in Sonoma Valley

It’s been the talk of the Sonoma Valley for weeks as people have watched the finishing

touches being put on the stunning two-story Italian villa along the Sonoma Highway in

Kenwood. That buzz has reached a crescendo now that VJB Vineyards and Cellars has

officially opened its new tasting room and marketplace, offering visitors an authentic taste

of Italy in the heart of the Sonoma Valley.

This opening marks the realization of a long-held dream for the Belmonte family who

had been pouring their wines for the past decade at a smaller store-front tasting room

adjacent to their new property. “We’ve always prided ourselves on our family hospitality,

and this new property takes it to a new level,” says Henry Belmonte. “This is where people

can truly experience our unique culture and in some way feel embraced into our family.”

VJB’s new home, which looks like it was plucked off a Tuscan hillside, is surrounded by

nearly two acres of newly planted Montepulciano and Aglianico vines, both Italian varietals

that are rarely grown in California.

In the tasting room, guests can sample those wines as well as other Italian varietals such

as the award-winning Barbera, Primitivo and VJB’s flagship wine called Dante – a blend of

Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese – made in the tradition of a Super Tuscan wine.

The marketplace features estate-grown olive oil, owner and Executive Chef Maria

Belmonte’s homemade tomato sauces and pestos, plus a wide range of the very best

imported Italian pantry items.

In the coming weeks, guests can also choose from a selection of freshly made antipasti,

panini and salads in La Cucina, the onsite deli and espresso bar, or order pizzas made in

the outdoor wood-fired oven.

At the heart of the ten-thousand-square-foot property is the central courtyard that

exudes the ambiance of a piazza in a small Italian village. Here, guests can enjoy a glass of

wine or a long, leisurely lunch from La Cucina. At one end of the piazza is the brick oven

where the pizzas are made and a demonstration kitchen where Chef Maria and her son and

co-owner Henry will host cooking classes featuring beloved family recipes.

The opening of their new winery marks VJB Vineyards and Cellars’ entry as a top wine

and food destination for the local community and visitors traveling the scenic Highway 12

corridor.

SCHUG CARNEROS ESTATE

Pinot Pickin’ Party and Outdoor Tasting

BY MIKE HYLAND

Steeped in wine country history, the Schug Carneros Estate Winery was established in

1980 by Walter Schug, highly regarded for creating excellent wines and known throughout

Napa and Sonoma counties. Schug’s reputation expanded greatly during his tenure as

founding winemaker for Napa’s Joseph Phelps Vineyards in the 1970s, where he made

California’s first proprietary Bordeaux-style blend called Insignia as well as award-winning

Cabernets.

A native of Germany’s Rhein River Valley, Walter Schug was raised on the region’s only

Pinot Noir estate, a varietal he has known since childhood. Both his father and his father-inlaw

managed wine estates in Germany, so it was only natural that grape growing and

winemaking would become a big part of Walter’s life. He marked his first harvest in 1953,

apprenticing at all nine of the famed wine estates of Hessen, in the Reingau area of Germany.

In 1959, after graduating from the prestigious German wine institute of Geisenheim,

Walter left for California where he spent a year expanding his knowledge working at a

winery as well as taking extension courses at UC Davis. Two years later, he returned to

California for good, with his wife Gertrud. In 1966, Julio Gallo asked him to become the

family’s head of Grower Relations and Quality Control for Northern California. Through his

work with Gallo, Walter became acquainted with more than 500 independent growers and

several thousand acres of prime vineyards in Napa, Sonoma and Mendocino counties.

Needless to say, Walter knows where all the premium grapes are in wine country.

By 1980, and with a very small market for Pinot Noir, Joseph Phelps ceased production of

the varietal. Not wanting to stop working with the grape that was so prominent in his life as a

child, and firmly believing in its future, Walter made a deal with Phelps to continue his

regular work at the winery, and also produce Pinot Noir under his own label.

Three years later, Walter’s private project had grown to such an extent that he left Phelps to

concentrate on his own brand, growing it over the years from 2,000 cases to 35,000 cases a

year. Walter marked his 50th harvest in 2003, an achievement that very few in California can

claim. Today as winemaster, Walter continues to oversee the production of consistently great

wines along with winemaker Michael Cox, who grew up in Sonoma and worked in both

WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK | WINE COUNTRY NEWS

Sonoma and Napa as a student.

Cox has been working with

Walter for more than 17 years.

With Chardonnay and Pinot

Noir being the mainstays of the

Schug Estate, the hospitality staff

is gearing up for its 8th Annual

Pinot Pickin’ Party ’n’ Polenta-a-

Plenty Picnic which follows in

the footsteps of its predecessors;

last year’s Pinot Pickin’ Party ’n’

Pizza Pie Palooza and the 2010

edition, Pinot Pickin’ Party ’n’

Palate Poppin’ Paella Picnic. This

event takes place during the

second or third weekend in

September and includes, of

course, Pinot grape picking on

the estate, a catered luncheon,

tasting of the Pinot Noir that was

picked two years ago (especially

cool for those who “worked it”

two years ago) and a whole lot of

fun and community with wine

club members.

A new addition has been

added to the wine tasting

experience at Schug as well. An

outdoor wine tasting area has

been created on the south end of

the winery which offers beautiful

vistas of the Carneros region, but

most importantly, it was

specifically situated to be alee of

the daily afternoon winds. “There

are so many beautiful days when

folks would just like to taste the

wines outside,” says David

Cumming, director of consumer

sales and a 15 year member of

the Schug family.“The biggest

obstacle to overcome was the

Petaluma Express that blows

through here just about every

day, so we found a great spot that

works perfectly, and we provide a

new tasting experience for our

guests.” Come by Schug and

enjoy the great wines in the great

outdoors and if you are just a bit

adventurous, sign on to pick a

little Pinot in September and

sample plenty of polenta while

you are at it!

MILJENKO ‘MIKE’ GRGICH

Celebrating 35 Years of the Man and His Legend

BY ABIGAIL P. ZIMMERMAN

“The American Dream came true for me in Napa Valley…That is how I

feel about it.,” explained famed winemaker Mike Grgich.

“It” being the sweeping success story of man triumphing over Easternblock

Communism and global migration only to win the most celebrated

wine competition ever – the 1976 Paris Tasting – and placing California

wine squarely on the global enological throne as King.

No small feat – any of it – so you can imagine my surprise to find this

Napa titan a fit, twinkle-eyed 89 years old, happily signing autographs,

taking pictures and even pouring wine to unwitting customers behind the

bar in his universally acclaimed Grgich Hills Estate Winery.

Born into a winemaking family living under Communism in Croatia,

Miljenko “Mike” Grgich was one of 11 children tending vineyards from a

very young age. His mother weaned him from breast milk at 2-1/2 years

and “my next beverage, from that point forward, was wine… Wine is so

important for the whole family,” continued Mike. “It is tradition.”

It took the covert whispers of his college professor, Professor Hebrang

(who had just returned from a sabbatical trip to study California wines

and vines) to inspire young Mike to think big. In the rare absence of

police monitors, Professor Hebrang whispered “California is a Paradise.”

And, Mike was hooked.

In August 1954, he literally walked out of Croatia carrying just one

small suitcase with two degrees in winemaking and business, ten books

on winemaking, a clean beret and US $32 between the soles of his shoe.

It took him four years to arrive in West Germany, immigrate to Canada by

1958 and later board a Greyhound bus to California. He arrived at 10:15

p.m. on August 15, 1958 in St. Helena, California holding the promise of

a job at Souverain Cellars.

The Souverain position came with a small cottage that Mike was

emotionally overwhelmed to see surrounded by Zinfandel vineyards – the

same vines he knew as a boy. The vines, to Mike, were old friends and “I

felt not lonesome anymore.”

Mike’s subsequent meteoric rise in winemaking is stuff of legend. Like

Henry Ford or Andrew Carnegie, Mike worked his way up from humble

beginnings to be a keystone of his industry based on luck, ambition and

determination. Following one vintage at Souverain, Mike moved onto

Christian Brothers (now the Culinary Institute of America) followed by

nine years working alongside legendary Russian winemaker Andre

Tchelistcheff at Beaulieu Vineyards.

In 1968, a mere ten years after stepping off that Greyhound bus, Mike

became Chief Enologist at the most innovative winery of the time, the

Robert Mondavi Winery. “In 1969, I made my very first Cabernet for

Robert,” Mike recalls by fusing cutting-edge techniques that nodded to

his traditional winemaking heritage. Mike listened intently to the

teaching of the master and took to heart “Robert’s preaching … that one

day, we’d be making wines every bit as good as France.”

By 1972, Mike joined Chateau Montelena as winemaker and limited

partner. There, he produced the epic 1973 Chardonnay that knocked the

French out of first position in the most famous, groundbreaking,

blind tasting competition in Paris, 1976. That day, his 1973

Chateau Montelena Chardonnay scored not just the best

Chardonnay but the very best wine in the world.

“I was nobody really until that point,” says Grgich. Jim Barrett,

Montelena owner, showed Mike the winning telegram but it took

Frank Prial, a reporter from the New York Times to fly out to Napa

and truly explain the magnitude of the win. Then, Mike

remembers, “It was like being born again.”

Within a single year, he joined forces with Austin Hills, of Hills

Brother Coffee Co., and broke ground on his childhood dream – a

California winery of his very own – Grgich Hills Estate. In each

corner of the new winery, Mike buried one of his four top bottles

produced respectively at Souverain, Beaulieu Vineyards, Robert

Mondavi and Chateau Montelena.

Mike did not let his fame get the best of him. Instead, he

channeled his focus into producing smaller and smaller batches of

only the finest quality Napa Valley wines. Mike worked to purchase

prime Napa vineyards to control every step on winemaking – from

vine to bottle. Today, all Grgich Hills wines are produced from

100% Estate vineyards and represent some of the finest terroir and

microclimates found in Napa Valley.

Even now in 2012, Mike and his team still work to carefully

produce artisan wine each year. “With too large a production, you

can’t specialize,” says Mike. “The rule exists that limited production

allows you, the Winemaker, to be an artist.”

Today, Mike still revels among his vines and works with

daughter Violet and nephew Ivo Jeramaz on each vintage produced

at Grgich Hills Estate. And on very special occasions, he breaks out

a bottle of that 1973 Chardonnay to savor with family. To Mike, the

old wines taste better and better as “Good wine and good ladies

only improve with maturity.”

Two Chances to Taste Ferrari-Carano Wines!

Now you have two choices when tasting Ferrari-Carano wines –

visit Ferrari-Carano Vineyards and Winery in Dry Creek Valley, or

taste the wines in Healdsburg at Ferrari-Carano’s Seasons of the Vineyard

Tasting Bar & Boutique!

Ferrari-Carano Vineyards and Winery

Ferrari-Carano Vineyards and Winery is known for their worldclass

wines as well as their magnificent gardens, and summer is the

perfect time to visit. Don and Rhonda Carano invite you to visit the

beautiful home of Ferrari-Carano wines, the spectacular Italianate

hospitality center, Villa Fiore, set in the midst of the 70-acre Dry

Creek Valley estate vineyard. Here you may taste critically acclaimed

Ferrari-Carano wines at the Classic Wine Bar, or sample Limited

Release and Reserve Wines downstairs in the Enoteca, stroll acres of

beautiful gardens, or view the magnificent underground cellar. Be

sure to browse the wine shop where you’ll find wine country’s most

distinctive gifts, wine gift packs and of course, the entire portfolio of

Ferrari-Carano wines.

If you’d like an in-depth look at Ferrari-Carano, reserve your spot

for the winery tour, offered daily at 10 a.m., free and by appointment.

Hosted by friendly and knowledgeable staff, you will stroll through

the gardens, see vineyards up close, perhaps catch one of the winemaking

team or cellar crew hard at work on the crush pad or in the

winery’s cellars or tank rooms, view Don and Rhonda Carano’s

personal wine cellar, and visit the Enoteca and Villa Fiore tasting

rooms. You will hear about Ferrari-Carano’s history – how Don and

Rhonda first came to Sonoma County on a wine buying trip and just

fell in love with the area. After the tour, you are invited to taste

Ferrari-Carano wines at the Classic Wine Bar or in the Enoteca.

Winery tours are available Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m., by

appointment. To schedule your tour, email tourinformation@ ferraricarano.com

or call the Hospitality Department at (707) 433-6700 or

1-800-831-0381.

Private tastings are also available by appointment. Each tasting,

hosted in the private PreVail Room, is designed to highlight the many

24

nuances of wine in a fun and informative style, and include Matchmaker

(a wine and food pairing), Chardonnay Lovers, The King of

Reds, The PreVail Tasting and Scentiments, to name a few. Private

tastings range in price from $20 to $35, and groups of up to eight are

welcome. To schedule a private tasting, contact the hospitality department,

privatetasting@ferrari-carano.com, call the Hospitality Department

or visit the website, www.ferrari-carano.com.

ZINA HYDE CUNNINGHAM WINERY

BY CHARLES NEAVE

The Mendocino County town of Boonville in the verdant Anderson Valley has its own fascinating

story. In fact, it even has its own vocabulary, called “Boontling.” The Zina Hyde Cunningham Winery

has a pretty interesting story as well. The winery’s history began in Maine (about as far from Boonville

as you can get), then to San Francisco during the Gold Rush then, to Mendocino County after

stopovers in Windsor and Kenwood, where winery founder and winemaker Zina Hyde added to his

landholdings by buying ranch property.

As with many prosperous and respected wineries, the ill-fated Volstead Act, which mandated

Prohibition, all but destroyed the winery that had taken decades of hard work and dedication to

build. But fast-forward half a century or more, to 2004 when Bill Cunningham, with the

encouragement of his cousin Steve Ledson, a prominent winery owner and winemaker in his own

right, encouraged him to restore the label that had roots going back nearly 150 years. You can

discover the result when you visit the architecturally superb tasting room on the town’s main street,

across from the Boonville Hotel and near restaurants, cafés and galleries.

The tasting menu is comprehensive, to say the least, since the wines that Zina Hyde Cunningham

produces include Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Gewürztraminer, Rosé, Pinot Noir, Carignane,

Zinfandel, Barbera, Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petite Sirah. Many of

the bottlings are listed as reserve, and there are also such limited-production dessert wine rarities as a

Late Harvest Primitivo Sweet Kerry Port, an Orange Muscat (plus an Orange Muscat “Port”), and a

Russian River Demi Sec Riesling. In fact, most of their wines are made in small lots, which is why

many people subscribe to their futures program, to make sure they can get the wines they covet.

Luckily, to help you decide, you can go to the tasting room and sample, either indoors at the

handsome bar, or out on the front porch, where you can take a bottle (the tasting room folks will

open it for you and loan you glasses) and perhaps get something from the charming and delightful

market right next door in this period building. There are also picnic tables out back, by the bocce

courts, should you be feeling borderline athletic.

DESTINATION DRIVERS

A Better, Smarter, Safer Way to Tour & Taste

BY TOM FLIPPEN

If you’re in the wine country your

objective is probably to tour and

taste, and you’ll most likely be doing

that by car. So you pretty much have

only two choices if you want to

minimize the possibility of flashing

lights in the rear view mirror: either

severely limit the number of tasting

rooms you visit, or have someone in

your group volunteer to…uh,

forego.

Ah, but there is a way for you and

everybody with you to enjoy as

many wineries as you want with

zero concern about encountering

the local gendarmerie. That’s what

Destination Drivers is about: providing a driver for your car.

Insurance? Your policy is primary, but all drivers have secondary

coverage and a clean DMV record. If you have a rental car your DD

person must be listed as an additional driver. They’ll get directions to

the rental car company’s nearest office, go there with you for the

necessary show of license, then get behind the wheel to begin your

wine country adventure.

There’s also the security factor. It’s comforting to have a live body

in your car while you’re in a tasting room, or while you savor a local

Port after dinner at that restaurant recommended by friends. DD

drivers are with your car at all times…except maybe when you want

Sean Pennington, owner of Destination Drivers and

one of the many drivers, escorts Laurie throughout

wine country in the comfort of her own car.

them to take a picture or help carry

that case of Cabernet from the

tasting room.

Destination Drivers has people

available from San Diego to Seattle,

including of course Napa and

Sonoma. Each will drive their

personal vehicle to meet you where

you’re staying (or anywhere else), at

any time you want, and take you to

as many wineries as you wish. And,

at no charge, DD can help with

planning and logistics.

Cost? For up to six people, $30

per hour with a three-hour

minimum ($40/hour for seven to

14). That’s about half the tab for a

limo or chauffeured SUV, and pales in comparison to the cost of a

DUI: currently a total of $2,326 in Sonoma County – not to mention

a mandatory 96 hours in the cross bar hotel (including 48 consecutive

hours), attorney’s fees and dramatically increased insurance

premiums for at least three years.

The cost-benefit analysis is nicely summed up by the Destination

Drivers tag line: “We drive. You relax,” which of course makes it

possible to really enjoy your wine country experience. Isn’t that what

touring and tasting is all about?

To reserve a Destination Driver for Napa or Sonoma counties, call

(707) 293-8137, or book online at destinationdrivers.com.

Auction Benefiting Young Musicians

Features One-Of-A-Kind Charles Krug Guitar

Guitar Crafted from Old Wine Tank Auctioned Online

for Napa Valley’s Music Connection Program

Charles Krug Winery is auctioning a handcrafted

guitar using wood from a 50-year-old wine

tank, with 100% of the proceeds benefiting “The

Music Connection,” a program of the Napa Valley

Education Foundation. The auction runs through

August 31, 2012 at www.charleskrug.com.

Affectionately referred to as “B.O.B.” because it

was built with wood at the “bottom of the barrel”

of a 50-plus-year-old redwood fermenting tank

from the historic Redwood Cellar on the Charles

Krug estate, the guitar is currently on display in the

Charles Krug Tasting Room. Bidders may view the

one-of-a-kind instrument during regular tasting

room hours, and images can be viewed on the

Charles Krug web site or at the auction site. Two

complimentary tickets to the annual Tastings on

the Lawn at Charles Krug Winery are also included

in the package.

The auction is solely for the benefit of the Music

Connection program of the Napa Valley

Educational Foundation for children in grades four

through twelve. The Music Connection has

provided musical instruments and education to

students in Napa since 1997. The program serves

nearly 3,000 Napa Valley students with nine

distinct music education and appreciation

programs offered through the Valley’s public

schools. Information about the foundation is

available at www.nvef.org.

B.O.B. was designed, crafted and donated by

WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK | WINE COUNTRY NEWS

David Heitzman of the Napa Guitar Company, and

a special label on the inside of the guitar is signed

by Peter Mondavi Sr. and sons.

“Everyone connected with the Charles Krug

Winery is proud to be able to support this

wonderful cause,” said Peter Mondavi, Jr., coproprietor

of the winery and a longtime supporter

of music education in the schools.

The winning bidder will officially be announced

at the winery’s Tastings on the Lawn event,

September 8th. The annual event, now in its 61st

year, offers food, wine, music and dancing on the

great lawn of the historic winery, which was the

first commercial winery in Napa Valley.

POPE VALLEY WINERY

Along a winding country road, up an unpaved drive and past Gus, a big, friendly,

chocolate lab, you’ll find one of the most unpretentious, down-to-earth tasting rooms

around. The Pope Valley, one of the California wine region’s hidden treasures, is home to

the Pope Valley Winery. This serene, bucolic setting offers a wine tasting experience far,

far away from the ostentatious fare to be found at some of the more well-known wine

country destinations. Here, you will be treated less like a visitor and more like a friend.

To reach the Pope Valley Winery requires a leisurely country drive that is, in itself, a

significant part of the experience. Winding through picturesque fields, undulating

vineyards and oak-studded hills, one gets the feeling of being transported back in time.

The pace here is slower, more peaceful than the flurry and commotion found along the

main thoroughfares of the Napa Valley. Photo opportunities present themselves around

every bend in the road.

A visit to Pope Valley Winery allows wine lovers to step back in time and experience

40 acres of history. The bubbling sounds of Haus Creek can be heard as you roam the

grounds of this historic winery. The original farmhouse still graces the property, as well

as a blacksmith’s workshop, complete with the tools of the trade. The winery itself is

housed in a historic building that was designed; before electricity was brought to the

site. It was fashioned as a three-story gravitational flow winery with a hand-dug cave, to

allow the wine to flow from crusher, to press, to barrel.

The Pope Valley Winery was founded in 1897 by Ed Haus as Burgundy Winery &

Olive Oil Factory. A century later in 1997, the Eakle family, purchased the historic

winery and gave it a new life as Pope Valley Winery. In 2009, the next generation of

Eakle’s stepped in to continue building and furthering the family’s vision for Pope Valley

Winery as a fine winemaking establishment. Currently siblings – David Eakle as

winemaker along with consulting winemaker Shaun Richardson and Diana Eakle

Hawkins as general manager – are making great strides in bringing Pope Valley Winery

to the next level.

You’ll enjoy the drive there, but the true prize comes when you arrive at Pope Valley

Winery. This isn’t just a pretty place; this is where some truly amazing wine is made.

Pope Valley Winery produces high quality, handcrafted single varietal wines. The

winery’s vineyards include more than 80 acres planted to Sangiovese, Cabernet

Sauvignon, Chenin Blanc, Zinfandel and Merlot. The rich, intense and flavorful wines

are created by combining superior fruit and oak barrel aging in the century-old cave.

Visit Pope Valley Winery and experience more than 100 years of history. The winery

has picnic grounds, a bocce ball court and a horse shoe pit for guests’ enjoyment as well

as cheese baskets for sale.

Joseph Pep Katcher, both of whom were born and whose family has

deep roots in Jalisco, Mexico. The trio set out to create a uniquely

smooth, delicate flavor with a quality refined enough for sipping.

The result was 14-time, award-winning CRUZ Tequila, which is made

from estate grown 100% pure blue agave from the highlands of the

Los Altos region of Jalisco, Mexico.

CRUZ Tequila is bottled in hand-numbered artisan blown glass

bottles, with an eye-catching solid metal cross on the face of the

bottle and metal raised profile cross cap, and is made from 100%

recycled glass and aluminum.

With the addition of spirits to TFE’s impressive wine portfolio, a

new division, TNS Brands, has been created to include dedicated

spirits sales and marketing resources. TFE will begin limited

distribution of CRUZ Silver and Reposado Tequila through its

national distribution channels in early August.

“We are excited to add award-winning CRUZ Tequila to the

Trinchero Family Estates portfolio,” Bob Torkelson, President and

COO of TFE commented. “As a family-owned business, we have

stayed true to our commitment to

providing quality products that

S T . H E L E N A

our consumers want.

CRUZ Tequila founder Todd

CHARLES

KRUG

Nelson added, “We are confident

that with Trinchero Family Estates’

BERINGER

extensive relationships with

MATERRA

restaurants and retailers, even

more consumers will be able to

experience and enjoy CRUZ

Tequila. While CRUZ is one of the

finest sipping tequilas on the

MERRYVALE

market, it will also appeal to

mixologists as the cocktail craze

continues to explode.

BALDACCI FAMILY VINEYARDS

BY CHARLES NEAVE

If you live in the wine country long enough, you’ll find out pretty quickly that when

friends and friends-of-friends visit, you become a de facto travel guide. To make matters

easier I made up a list of wineries that I could print out and keep on hand. For years,

Baldacci Family Vineyards on the Silverado Trail has been on the list, and from the

comments I have received from everyone who’s been there, Baldacci has deserved to be on

the list. Having been there recently, it deserves it now more than ever.

The winery is the realization of a dream that Tom and Brenda Baldacci had for a long

time, one that began to come together with the purchase of this 17-acre property in the

Stags Leap district in 1997. From the very beginning, the winery has combined a passion

for winemaking with the tradition of family.

The winery tasting room is like being in the private wine cellar of a friend’s home, in this

case, a restored Napa farm house with two compact granite-topped tasting bars. It is “wine

country casual” with great attention to detail and charming understatement. The terrace is

the same, as is the pathway to the 4,000 square feet of humidity- and naturally

temperature-controlled caves carved into the knoll.

As you sit outdoors and enjoy their wine, look across the vineyards that are at the core

of the winery’s estate Cabernet Sauvignon program. These grapes reach their maximum

potential and create exceptional tannic structure and concentrated flavors – essential

elements of their wine.

New to the property is their Cellar Reserve Room, with thick stone walls and perfectly

set tables for tasting in a venue that is both rustic and refined.

A wine that shows the commitment to both family and quality is the IV Sons Cabernet

Sauvignon, named for the four Baldacci sons. Then there are the four elements: it is always

crafted of Cabernet Sauvignon and a bit of Cabernet Franc, and the wine is aged in French

and American oak barrels. The result is a wine filled with fig and black cherry nuances.

Other wines wearing the Baldacci label are Pinot Noir and more Cabernet Sauvignon.

The Allwin Syrah is another favorite, as is the limited-production Gewürztraminer and a

wine that never fails to delight and surprise is their Chardonnay. But then, you need to

visit, decide for yourself and, most of all, enjoy every moment of the experience.

Calistoga Balloons – Experience, Quality, Safety

BY ALEXANDRA CHARSLEY

Calistoga Balloons is a unique and intimate flying experience over

the scenic northern end of the Napa Valley. These flights are more

rural in nature, providing pristine views. Experience Old Faithful

Geyser, the dramatic Palisade Cliffs, Mt. St Helena, as well as

spectacular views of world-renown landmarks, vineyards and

wineries including Chateau Montelena – the winery that put

California’s Napa Valley number one in the world, Castello di

Amorosa – the authentic 12th century Tuscan Castle-winery, Sterling

Winery, Envy Winery, Vincent Arroyo Winery and more. Calistoga is

a unique destination whose vistas will remain with you for a lifetime!

Your adventure begins just

after sunrise, between 6 a.m. and

7 a.m., when hot air ballooning

flight conditions are best and the

morning sunlight enhances the

natural beauty. Guests meet at the

historic Railroad Depot at 1458

Lincoln Avenue in friendly and

quaint, Calistoga and off to the

morning’s determined launch site.

After the crew inflates the balloon,

guests hop into the wicker basket.

Once everyone is in, the hot air

balloon is ready to go and you

begin your gentle ascent.

After about an hour of

enjoying the breathtaking views of

Napa Valley, the hot air balloon

42

Homewood

Winery

will be navigated to a landing site, then your ballooning party is

transported to the historic Calistoga Inn for a celebratory Champagne

brunch! Your magnificent flight and Champagne brunch costs only

$229 per person, ballooning excursions only $199.

“I look at all of the vineyards we

own, and all of the individual lots of

wines that we make, and the

thousands of barrels we have sitting

in our cellar and sometimes I think,

you gotta be kidding me! After I’ve

sufficiently recovered from my daily

panic attack, I take off my coat, dig

in my heels and take it one barrel at

a time. It’s a rewarding job that

I love.”

WINEMAKER PROFILE

RANDY ULLOM

Overseeing the Entire Kendall-Jackson Portfolio Since 1997

BY ABIGAIL P. ZIMMERMAN

Randy Ullom found his start to becoming King of America’s most famous

Chardonnay brand – Kendall-Jackson – by way of being a college ski bum in

South America.

As a college student in Utah, Randy felt set apart first for his preference for

wine over beer and second for his wanderlust penchant for skiing. “Even though I

was studying Mining and Engineering, I mostly majored in skiing.” Part way

through school, Randy took a leave of absence to ski in Chile. Three months

hiatus became three years! Randy felt welcome in early 1970s Chile. Locals

befriended him and Randy reveled in Chilean culture, especially enjoying wine

each night.

Wine at dinner was a staple,” explains Randy. “There was a white wine glass

and a red wine glass at the table every night.” The father of a local friend took the

time to explain the nuances of grapes, cultivation and wine. Randy may have lived

in Chile indefinitely had political instability and a dangerous new regime not sent

Randy back to America.

Once home, Randy delved into Crop Production with a specialty in Viticulture

and Enology at Ohio State. Initially selecting the University to be near family,

Randy soon found a home within the thriving regional grape-growing belt

surrounding the Great Lakes. After earning his degree in 1975, Randy worked in

Ohio and New York before coming to California in 1981 to work the next decade

with renowned winemaker Cecil De Loach. Then, “Jess” came calling.

This year, I’m wrapping up 19, entering my 20th year here with Jess and

family!” And legions of American wine lovers can be thankful. Randy’s astute

palate and hard work ethic combine to preserve and expand the wine legacy that

is the Kendall-Jackson brand. Men and women across the nation toast each other

with Kendall-Jackson wines and it is Randy who we may thank for the nationally

distributed Vintner’s Reserve Chardonnay – which is not just Gold Medal wine

but also the enological point for wine enthusiasts to begin exploring their own

palate and seek even more diversity in their glasses.

“When people come to taste at Kendall-Jackson, they’ll be pleased to find many

different tiers of Chardonnay.” Indeed, Kendall-Jackson produces distinguished

single vineyard, single block, even single clone Chardonnay in California.

“My palate was quite aligned with Jess…and we understood how to make that

200 case, $85 per bottle Chardonnay as well as the larger volume Vintner’s

Reserve that America loves…We understood the volumetrics, economics and

quality aspects for the breadth of wines produced by Jackson Family Wines,”

explains Randy.

Today, visitors to the Tasting Room on Healdsburg Square may select and

savor higher end wines from the Grand Reserve, Jackson Hills and Highland

Estate tiers as well as the Vintner’s Reserve wines available in the Fulton Road

Tasting Room.

Summarizes Randy, “Just try our wines. Sip it. And a couple of sips leads to a

glass which leads to a bottle, and the rest is history.”

Raise a Glass to the 17th Annual Grape to Glass Pre-Harvest Party

Russian River Valley Winegrowers hosts beloved annual event showcasing

its regional wines and chefs for a summertime pre-harvest celebration

The grapes are warming in the sun, ripening on the vine and

preparing for harvest in the fall. Celebrating the bounty of spectacular

wines produced in Sonoma County, the Russian River Valley

Winegrowers announced that tickets are on sale for the 17th Annual

place on the beautiful grounds of Richard’s Grove & Saralee’s

Vineyard (3575 Slusser Road) in Windsor, the Grape to Glass event

kicks off at 4 p.m. and brings together wine enthusiasts, winemakers,

grape growers, chefs, hoteliers and artists for a summertime

celebration of all things wine. Guests will taste boutique wines

grown in the Russian River Valley appellation as well as some of the

“The Grape to Glass Pre-Harvest Party is one of our most popular

signature events of the year,” said Russian River Valley Winegrowers

President John Holdredge. “It’s a chance for guests to celebrate the

region for all its wonderful wines and wind down the summer before

the labor of harvest season kicks in.”

Consisting of a walk-around wine tasting, a silent and live auction

benefitting Russian River Valley Winegrowers, a dinner feast by Chef

Larry Vito of BBQ Smokehouse Bistro & Catering, live music by

Urban Oasis and a Farmer’s Market, Grape to Glass features more

Cutrer Vineyards, Balletto Vineyards & Winery, Martin Ray Winery,

Longboard Vineyards, Dutton Estate Winery, Williams Selyem, Merry

Edwards Wines, Village Bakery, La Tortilla Factory, Martinelli Farms,

glass mosaic artist Lisa Jean De Soto, printmaking and textile artist

Rakshika Thakor, glass artist Susanna Kaplan, Jungle Maiden Jewelry,

Wine Barrel Creations, Interiors By Lynn and Napkins by Sue, with

more to be announced.

For more than 130 years, the Russian River Valley has been

making a variety of wines, which thrive in its cool-climate. The area

now consists of more than 15,000 acres of planted grapevines and

produces Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Zinfandel, Merlot, Cabernet

Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Pinot Gris and Gewürztraminer.

Tickets range from $80 for an individual ticket to $900 for a party

of 10, the latter including two bottles of Russian River Valley wine

and two VIP parking passes, and may be purchased at online or over

the phone at (707) 521-2534.

Russian River Valley Winegrowers works to support wineries and

winegrowers in the Russian River Valley appellation of Sonoma

County. Consisting of approximately 275 members, the organization

was founded in 1994 and also consists of the Russian River Valley

Winegrowers Foundation, Inc., a 501(c)3 charitable foundation that

supports agriculture education and activities in the region. For more

STATION 1870

‘Santa Rosa’s Newest and Most Vibrant Wine Bar’

BY ABIGAIL P. ZIMMERMAN

Station 1870 is the new wine spot in historic Railroad Square. Named for the year the

very first locomotive train arrived into downtown Santa Rosa, Station 1870 is a rich,

comfortably sophisticated night spot to mix and mingle with old and new friends.

Station 1870 is owned by Clay Fritz and boasts eight labels and 22 different wines

available by the glass or bottle each night. Illustrious labels such as Lost Canyon, Fritz

Estate and Rocca Caselli (Italy) are only a few of the fine wines on hand at Station 1870.

Born into an important name in Sonoma wine, Fritz utilizes his legacy in fine wine

production to not just serve his namesake wines but also to pour select, limited release

labels he has acquired here in California or imported from Italy. Married to an Italian

American, Fritz has also honed his palate for Italian produced Prosecco, Brunello and

Chianti – all of which are available nightly at Station 1870.

Want a new, delicious way to wrap up a busy day or enjoy waiting for your table at any

of the fantastic restaurants in Railroad Square? Stop in to Station 1870 and start with a

very special glass of NV Loriella Prosecco paired with a piece of holy-cow-amazing Salt

Side Down Meyer Lemon Infused White Chocolate Truffle. This treat brings out an array

of citrus undertones and refreshing brightness in the wine. It is just the right amount of

decadence to put a smile on your face! ($8 for the pairing).

Be sure to also try the 2010 Vino Valpredo “Bianca Mia.” A unique blend of Sauvignon

Blanc and Chardonnay, this alluring white wine marries a bouquet of white peach,

nectarine and key lime with a rich, smooth finish of orange peel and sweet tea leaf ($8 by

the glass/$24 by the bottle).

Wines are also available by the flight. Selected regularly by wine stewards, each wine

flight consists of a 2-oz pour of three or four different wines. This is an ideal way to taste

through many wines without having to commit to a full glass. Choose from the White

Wine Flight ($8), Pinot Noir Flight ($10) and Red Wine Flight ($12). Subsequently, each

wine will also be available for purchase by the full glass or bottle.

Whether you come for the great wine or the sexy atmosphere and warm welcome,

Station 1870 is a wine bar sure to be a favorite.

Vineyard Tours Now Available At Meadowcroft Wines

Every Saturday and Sunday at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. Meadowcroft

Wines is offering Vineyard Tours of the 18-acre Pinot Noir vineyards

on the property. Discover why the Carneros region is the perfect spot

“Our tour guests will learn the dynamics of growing one of the

world’s most sought after grape from soil and root to leaf and berry,”

says Meadowcroft tasting room manager Phyllis Hyland. “Giving our

guests hands-on information about the varietal, why Carneros is an

important growing area for Pinot Noir, and discussing the various

stages of seasonal growth, with the end result being one of our most

popular wines, has become an extremely popular feature at our

tasting room.”

Individuals and small groups are invited to take part in the

weekend tours by calling the tasting room for a reservation at (707)

934-4090. Guests are also encouraged to bring a hat and depending

upon the time of year, a jacket as well. The Vineyard Tours will

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.

WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK | MENDOCINO/LAKE COUNTIES

A Taste of Lakeport Pairs Lake County

Wineries with Local Restaurants, August 17

The 16th-annual food and wine event, A Taste of Lakeport, will

once again pair Lake County wines with food from local purveyors at

various locations along seven blocks of Main Street in downtown

Lakeport on Friday, August 17, from 5 to 10 p.m.

The event encourages a leisurely stroll along Main Street with

stops at shops for wine tasting, while enjoying live entertainment.

Tasting will take place from 5 to 8 p.m., followed by the street dance

and no host bar from 8 to 10 p.m.

Event-goers can sip premium Lake County wines from as many as

20 participating wineries and sample tasty bites from local

restaurants. To keep the fun going, live music will play throughout

the evening featuring the Rodeo Polecats during the tasting portion of

the event and the Jimmy Z Band during the street dance.

Tickets for the event are $30 ($15 food only) in advance and may

be purchased at the Lake County Chamber of Commerce. Tickets

also may be purchased the day of the event. Ticket purchase includes

a wine glass and a map showing all participating wineries and

restaurants.

Presented by the Lakeport Main Street Association (LMSA), A

Taste of Lakeport is a benefit for the revitalization of downtown

Lakeport. For further information, contact LMSA at (707) 243-8843,

or visit www.lakeportmainstreet.com.

One of California’s hottest new wine destinations, Lake County is

just two hours by car from the San Francisco Bay Area, Sacramento

Valley and Pacific Coast. Lake County is home to Clear Lake, the

largest natural freshwater lake in California and one of the oldest

lakes on the continent, and Mount Konocti, an ancient volcano that

recently opened to offer one of the newest day hikes in the state. Visit

Lake County to enjoy the state’s cleanest air, spectacular scenic beauty

and unsurpassed recreation – hiking, biking, wine tasting, paddling,

fishing, birding, golfing, off-road adventures and even rockhounding.

Shannon Ridge Family of Wines

Opens New Tasting Room

Shannon Ridge Family of Wines has opened a new tasting room in

the High Valley Appellation of Lake County. Located on Highway 20

in the town of Clearlake Oaks, the tasting room gives Shannon Ridge

Family of Wines greater visibility and access. “Our goal is to make the

new tasting room a real expression of the agriculture of Lake County,”

stated Clay Shannon. “Of course we’ll have wine tasting, but we also

plan to offer our grass-fed lamb, fresh produce, a gourmet deli and a

store with fresh-brewed coffee and homemade ice cream.

“We expect the tasting room to be the go-to place for locals who

are shopping for produce or dinner supplies,” continued Shannon,

“and for visitors to Lake County who are looking for a taste of great

wine and a gourmet sandwich.”

The new tasting room is located at 13151 East Highway 20 in

Clearlake Oaks and is open daily from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more

information, call (707) 998-9656.

The Shannons are committed to preserving their land, not only for

the great vineyard sites but also for the bear, elk, mountain lions,

eagles and other creatures which live there. Of the approximately

1,400 acres on the ranch, only about 35% have been converted to

vineyards. The balance of the land has been preserved for the wildlife

which wanders through the property from the expansive wilderness

area to the north and east. The vineyards were carefully planned out,

leaving corridors open to migrating animals and to protect sensitive

nesting areas.

McGrail Vineyards and Winery

BY KIMBERLY HORG-WEBB

Wine enthusiasts can admire the breath-taking views of a 16-

acre Cabernet vineyard sprawled along Greenville Road, perfectly

situated on top of a hill in Livermore. McGrail Vineyards and

Winery specializes in 100-percent, estate-grown Cabernet

Sauvignon.

McGrail won the Sweepstakes Red Wine Award from the San

Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition this year for its flagship

wine, the 2008 McGrail Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve.

“We farm it to the highest degree for quality. We drop fruit

several times throughout the year and we strive for the best fruit

possible,” said Heather McGrail, McGrail Vineyards and Winery

President.

The winery ages its wine for 30 months in oak barrels. The

extra time in the barrel helps integrate the flavors. They also taste

each and every barrel before finalizing its blend which ensures

top quality.

Jim and Ginger McGrail opened McGrail Vineyards and

Winery in 2008 with the help of their daughter, Heather

McGrail. The McGrails have been growing grapes for the last 12

years for the Steven Kent Winery. In 2009, they hired Mark

Clarin as winemaker and the rest is history.

“We use the time honored method of producing wine; start

with good grapes and don’t mess it up,” Heather McGrail

said. “Our winery is all about fun, family and friends.”

According to her, the Petite Sirah and Chardonnay are other

popular selections. The Chardonnay is a California style

Chardonnay with fruit notes, oak and butter. The Petite Sirah is

grown from the fruit of a family friend and neighbor, Julio

Covarrubias. It has blueberry notes, dark fruit and dry tannins.

Two wines were released this year, a dry Cabernet Sauvignon

Rosé and a 2009 Reserve Cabernet that will be released in July.

When the tasting room originally opened they poured only

one wine, the 2005 Reserve Cabernet, the same “recipe” but

different vintage. Each year, they work at improving this wine

while keeping it consistent with previous vintages.

“It’s exciting that three vintages later we have

successfully created a wine that receives such high honors,”

Heather McGrail said.

She says besides sampling the award winning wines, guests

always have the opportunity to meet someone from the family at

the winery on any certain day.

The tasting room is open Friday through Monday and by

appointment Tuesday through Thursday. They offer private

vineyard tours as well as private tastings for groups or events. For

more information, call (925) 215-0717 or visit the website at

www.mcgrailvineyards.com.

Musical Wine by The Singing Winemaker

BY KIMBERLY HORG-WEBB

Music and wine lovers can have the both of best worlds by tasting

musically inspired wines with live music by the singer/winemaker

who goes by the name: The Singing Winemaker (aka Steve Powell).

Steve’s signature wines are his red varietals but he offers every type

of wine ranging from Dolcissimo, a musical term meaning “very

sweetly” for a Cabernet Sauvignon blush; a white Scherzando,

(musical term for playful) for his, light summer white wine; a tawny

Port; a late harvest Zin dessert wine along with peach, raspberry and

almond sparkling wines. “We focus on red but provide wine for all

palates, there is something in the tasting room for everyone,” he said.

“We have great wines and the best wine tasting experience.” The

Singing Winemaker has not released a new red wine in a year, so this

summer he is back in action, releasing six wines. Each will have a

release party during the summer with wine and food pairings for

guests and of course, music for every age and taste performed by The

Singing Winemaker.

Many of his wines have musical names including his Harmony

blend made with Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Old Vine Zinfandel.

The Singing Winemaker’s popular Melody which is a blend of Malbec

and Tempranillo is always a crowd pleaser along with another favorite,

Amador County Barbera, which is a robust Italian varietal.

SANTA CLARA/SANTA CRUZ/MONTEREY COUNTIES | WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK

Santa Cruz Cancer Benefit Group Gourmet Grazing on the

Green Food & Wine Festival To Be Held on September 15

The 9th annual Gourmet Grazing on the Green, a fabulous festival

featuring the best local food, wine and beer, supports the Santa Cruz

Cancer Benefit Group. The Santa Cruz Cancer Benefit Group is a

non-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for

people living with cancer in the Santa Cruz community. Working

with a dedicated group of volunteers and partners the organization

raises community consciousness through events and outreach and

provides vital financial support for several Santa Cruz beneficiary

organizations including Hospice of Santa Cruz, Jacob’s Heart

Children’s Cancer Association and University of California at Santa

Cruz.

Held at beautiful Aptos Village Park on Saturday, September 15th

from 12 to 5 p.m., Grazing on the Green is a fun-filled day of fine

wine, excellent food, locally crafted beers and live music! Spend the

afternoon sampling the delicious flavors from dozens of the finest

local restaurants and local wineries as well as breweries. Also, Santa

Cruz Cancer Benefit Group is honored to welcome attendees to meet

and greet the Beneficiaries who are our special guests at the event.

Beneficiaries include Hospice of Santa Cruz County, Jacob’s Heart

Children’s Cancer Association, Katz Cancer Resource Center,

WomenCARE Cancer Advocacy and University of California at Santa

Cruz.

Ticket prices include food, wine and beer tastings all day. Plus a

wine glass. By purchasing a $65 ticket to this food and wine festival,

attendees are raising funds for the Santa Cruz Cancer Benefit Group

(SCCBG) while getting to attend a fun day for foodies and winelovers.

There will be a huge selection of Santa Cruz restaurants and

local wineries and breweries that are participating in the 2012 event

as well as local farmers who have donated produce for the Gourmet

Grazing event; this list includes Coke Farms, Route One, Earthbound

Farms, New Natives and Watsonville Coast Produce.

Tickets include admission to the event, special souvenir wine glass,

and a day of food, wine and beer tasting. Purchase tickets online or at

local New Leaf Markets. If you know a few people who want to

attend, take advantage of group discounts: 10 tickets for $500.

SCCBG has funded cancer research and local groups – including

many that support people living with cancer – since 1995. SCCBG

was started by a small group of friends who used to play tennis

together once a week; they had each lost a relative or friend to cancer

and wanted to do something to make a difference. The first event the

organization hosted was a Spring Forward Against Cancer Tennis

Tournament and Celebration; these tournaments are still held each

year. Proceeds from this year’s Gourmet Grazing benefit these local

cancer support and research organizations: Hospice of Santa Cruz

County, Jacob’s Heart Children’s Cancer Support and Services, The

Katz Cancer Resource Center, UC Santa Cruz Cancer Research and

WomenCARE.

Participating restaurants include Café Cruz, Chaminade Resort &

Spa, Hula’s Island Grill, Beast BBQ, Johnny’s Harborside,

Shadowbrook Restaurant, The Whole Enchilada and Zameen

Mediterranean Cuisine.

Participating wineries and breweries include Alfaro Family

Vineyards, Kathryn Kennedy Winery, Beauregard Vineyards,

Muccigrosso Vineyard, Santa Cruz Mountain Brewing, Seabright

Brewery, Sones Cellars and Vino Tabi.
