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

Why do wineglasses come in a variety of shapes?

There is an art and science to designing the proper wineglass. When

served at the proper temperature, the best qualities of a wine will come

forward when served in a glass that is designed to bring out the best in

that particular wine. I learned this firsthand from a demonstration by

Riedel Glass, an Austrian glass manufacturer widely acknowledged to be

one of, if not the world’s leading wineglass producers.

Their philosophy is simple. The content of the glass determines the

shape. And for each wine style, from light, acidic white wines to fullbodied

reds with high alcohol levels, and everything in between, Riedel

has a wineglass to fit it.

The difference between tasting wine from an inappropriate glass and

one designed for that particular wine is an eye-opening experience. From

the moment you stick your nose inside the glass, to savoring the wine’s

finish, the right wineglass will help define the true aroma and flavors of

the wine.

There is a specific bowl shape for each type of wineglass:

Sparkling Wines: Tall, narrow, glass allows the wine’s bubbles to form

at the bottom and rise to the top better than in a wider, shallower glass.

The tall shape also celebrates the richness of the sparkler on the palate.

White Wines: Shorter than a champagne glass, with a medium

diameter bowl. This combination helps to release a fruity, acidic white

wine’s aroma quickly and gets your sense of smell working immediately.

Use this type of glass for Riesling, a French Chablis, Pinot Grigio and

Sauvignon Blanc. A more robust white wine, such as a full-bodied

Chardonnay or Viognier, will be better served in a glass with a slightly

larger diameter bowl, as this helps the wine breathe, releasing its full

aromas.

Red Wines: A glass for light to medium-bodied red wines, like Pinot

Noir, is one with a slightly wider bowl than that for white wine, and with

a rim that delivers the wine into the palate with precision. This type of

glass emphasizes the fruit flavors of the wine as much as its aromas. Some

will have a taller than average bowl to help direct the wine to the tip of

the tongue as it enters the mouth, where its fruitiness will be detected

first. The aim here is to balance the flavor and texture of the wine as the

initial sensations of the wine are experienced. Heavier red wines, like

Cabernet Sauvignon need the largest bowl of all in order to mix as much

wine as possible with air and allow you to stick your nose inside the glass

to fully appreciate the wine’s bouquet. This shape will bring out the most

in these big red wines, which, in general, tend to have more complexity

and more intense flavors than other wines.

Dessert Wines: Because dessert wines are meant for sipping very

small quantities at a time, these glasses will have very small bowls. In

addition, the shape allows the wine to flow over the tip of the tongue and

along its sides to experience the full effect of the wine’s rich flavors. This

glass is good when drinking sweet white wines like Sauternes or late

harvest Riesling. When drinking sherry and port wines, the strong aroma

coming from the higher alcohol levels of these wines must be tamed and

not permitted to overpower the rest of the wine’s bouquet. Thus, the

bowl for these wines is slightly tapered to prevent you from putting your

nose inside the glass and getting too much of the vapors from the

alcohol.

Wine & Spirits Education Trust and Chicago Wine School and continually gains knowledge from his frequent contact

Turn left and go back 100 years

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 oakstudded

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

BERiNgER viNEYARdS

BY ALEXANDRA CHARSLEY

Beringer Vineyards holds the distinction of being the oldest continuously operating

winery in the Napa Valley. This historic estate has to be one of my favorite visits while in

St. Helena as the architecture is the vision of fairytales. It is also one of the very few

wineries that survived prohibition and in 2001 the entire winery estate was designated a

Historic District on the National Register for Historic Places. With its perfect blend of

modern technology and age-old traditions, Beringer Vineyards still produces memorable

wines that continue to bring recognition to the company and all of Napa Valley.

Beringer Vineyards was founded in 1876 by two brothers Jacob and Frederick

Beringer. Traveling from Germany, they found Napa Valley to contain rocky, welldrained

soils similar to those in their native Rhine Valley. The volcanic soil was ideal for

growing the same grapes found in Europe’s great winemaking regions. Best of all, the

hills could be dug out to provide storage and aging tunnels that would maintain the

constant temperature needed to produce fine wines. Jacob and Frederick together

bought land in 1875 and set about making wines that compared to the best in Europe.

Even today, the average 58°F temperature inside the tunnels makes them the ideal place

for Beringer Vineyards to age fine wines and the newly restored Old Stone Winery, a

popular focus for visitors, marks the entrance to this cool, subterranean world.

The Hudson House, Jacob’s former residence has been restored and expanded and

now serves today as Beringer Vineyards’ Culinary Arts Center. The Rhine House,

Frederick’s former residence is a re-creation of the Beringer Family home located on the

Rhine River in Germany. This ornate Victorian classic is the center of Beringer’s reserve

and library tastings. It is a place where guests can enjoy a glass of wine while relaxing in

the old library or on the same porch that Frederick once sat, overlooking the expansive

lawns, lush gardens, and out across the Napa Valley.

Tasting wine is undoubtedly one of the big attractions of Napa Valley and their

historic estate offers several tasting rooms where you can sample an unparalleled

selection of wines and learn more about winemaking.

Taste Beringer Reserve and Limited Production Wines at the Reserve Tasting Bar in

the historic Rhine House Mansion. Here, you can select three wines

from an extensive menu for a tasting fee of $25. Or, tastings can be

held in The Old Winery Tasting Room. For a $20 tasting fee, guests

may select three wines from a menu that includes their whites, red

and semi-sweet/blush wines. Their tasting room staff has extensive

knowledge of each of their wines and will help you select wines for a

personal tasting experience. Private Tastings can be made by

appointment and include tastings of the Beringer Reserve and

Limited Production Wines in a private setting by one of their hosts.

Their extensive library collection of wines sets them apart and this

unique tasting experience is a must while in Napa Valley.

Their estate is so large that it’s easy to spend a good part of the day

here. Tours include:

Introduction to Beringer: This historic tour guides you through

the original Stone Winery and aging tunnels, highlighting Beringer’s

history and commitment to quality. Guests will enjoy tasting a white

wine at the bar in the caves and a red wine at the bar in the Old

Winery gift shop. Tour costs $25 per person; all ages are welcome.

Tour is given about eight times a day.

Taste of Beringer: Learn about the Napa Valley, Beringer Family

history and how to taste wine like a professional. You’ll first explore

the Old Stone Winery and wine-aging tunnels, and then visit the

demonstration vineyard. From there you will proceed to the Rhine

House Mansion for a sit-down tasting of three Reserve wines with

food pairing. Tour costs $40 per person; 21 years and over only; tour

is given at 10:30 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. daily.

Reservations are recommended and can be made by calling 1-

866-708-9463.

With their extensive portfolio of wines, it is easy to find a favorite

here. Spend the afternoon with a glass of wine strolling through the

gardens. There are snack items onsite or call ahead (at least 48 hours)

and they’ll arrange a box lunch.

Where Exciting Options Await at Any Speed

BY JOSH STEIN

Andretti Winery is minutes from the city of Napa, but you’ve got to know

where to look to find it – which makes the arrival all the better!

The winery was founded in 1996 when legendary race car driver Mario

Andretti and his friend, Joseph Antonini, former Chairman, President and

CEO of Kmart Corporation, brought their shared love of Mediterranean

cuisine, lifestyles and wines to the Napa Valley’s Oak Knoll District, selected

because its location just north of the city of Napa provides moderating ocean

breezes and weather, cooling the heat of long summer days and prolonging

harvest, allowing for more complexity in the resulting wines. Well-known

winemaker Bob Pepi has been involved since the beginning in designing the

winery to create the best expressions of food-friendly releases from the

surrounding forty-two acres.

Creating wines which go well with food means approaching the vineyard

and winemaking with an eye towards acid levels: “You want the fruit to shine

forth,” remarks Bob. “And when you have that crispness from the acidity, it

really makes the wines go well with food.” This also means working with

vineyards in the mid-Valley so that higher alcohols and their deleterious

effects on food-and-wine matches are kept at bay. The award-winning “Cal-

Ital” wines have not disappointed, and given the wide range of wines Bob

makes for Andretti Winery, there’s something for everyone.

Indeed, most would be hard pressed not to find something to their liking

in the Andretti releases. The team has thoughtfully produced multiple

“families” of wines, with specific varietals and source locations for each,

matching lifestyles and wine, not just cuisine as many claim to do but

actually considering the way in which wine is incorporated into different

lanes of life.

The Montona Reserve are all estate releases, including Reserve

Chardonnay, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. The Napa Valley Series

provides wines from the full range of the Valley’s locations and includes

Cabernet, Chardonnay, Merlot, Pinot Grigio, Pinot Noir, Sangiovese,

Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah and a Cal-Ital Zinfandel-Primitivo blend. As if that

weren’t enough, the California Selections, as its name implies, goes further

afield to produce “La Dolce Vita” wines for everyday enjoyment, and the Villa

Andretti Wines offer small production bottlings of rare-for-Napa varietals:

Dolcetto, Moscato and Riesling.

As might be expected given the founders’ passions, the winery estate’s

forty-two acres, on often-mistakenly-overlooked Big Ranch Road

conveniently just beyond the city’s limits at the very start of “wine country,”

immediately brings to mind the relaxation of the Aegean. A mini village

awaits, accompanied by Cypress and vinesand a total feeling of isolation from

the rest of the Valley. Walk-ins are perfectly welcome, but many of the

winery’s best offerings require reservations; give them a call and they will not

disappoint.

The range of options shows again the team’s emphasis on the guest’s

enjoyment: for those wanting an experience for a larger group, private tours

and tastings, vineyard tours, private events for ten to 250 in the villa and

WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK

Napa Cellars and Ménage à Trois

by Sue Straight, The Wine Wench

Located smack-dab in the middle of the Napa Valley is a comfortable,

friendly place that offers great wines, an awesome gift shop,

knowledgeable, helpful staff and picnic grounds, too! This place is

home to Napa Cellars and Ménage à Trois!

The grounds are beautifully landscaped – mounds of lavender and

assorted colorful flowers delight the eye and nose and a fountain

(which is actually their sign – how cool is that?) burbles away merrily,

delighting the ears. Around back is a grassy, tree-shaded picnic area,

where visitors are invited to kick off their shoes and relax a while.

The visitor’s center is a geodesic dome, with a pentagon shaped

tasting bar set up in the middle of the room, so visitors have lots of

space to belly up to the bar. Directly above the bar, in the center of

the room, a grape motif stained glass window shines a rainbow of

color down on the happy scene. A marble topped bar against one

wall is used for overflow on busy days, and

because of its prime location, this visitors

center can get very busy at times. Not to

worry, though, the well-trained staff easily

handles busy times. They are friendly and

knowledgeable and love gently educating

their guests about all things wine.

There is an impressive array of non-wine

gift items, including logoed T-shirts, hats,

glassware, oils and dipping sauces (samples

available), picnic supplies and more, artfully

displayed around the room on upended

barrels and custom display racks.

The wines here are very good and reasonably

priced. I tasted a few during my visit and

the following wines were my favorites:

Napa Cellars Reserve Chardonnay, Mount

Veeder: This is a classic Chardonnay, with

aromas and flavors of baked apples, baking

spices, buttered toast and vanilla. Rich and

complex in the mouth, with a long, delicious

finish.

Napa Cellars Zinfandel, Napa Valley: This

Zin is spicy, sassy and absolutely enjoyable! It’s

what my wine-judging buddies and I call a

“berry bomb.” Blackberry, raspberry and

strawberry aromas and flavors abound, enhanced by lots of peppery

spice. It is bright and juicy in the mouth, with a mouthwatering finish.

You’re going to want another sip…

Napa Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon, Stagecoach Vineyard: In a

word, delicious! Mouthwatering aromas of black cherry blackcurrant,

mocha, rose petals and spice box continue as flavors in the velvety,

decadently rich mouth.

The visitors center for Napa Cellars and Ménage à Trois, located at

7481 St. Helena Hwy, Oakville, CA is open daily from 10 a.m. to

6 p.m. For more information, call 1-800-535-6400 or visit their

ZD Wines – Four Decades of Organic Excellence

BY JOSH STEIN

ZD has been doing things the right way for more than four decades,

and over the years they have never lost sight of the importance of being

good stewards of the land. Long before Napa became world famous, wine

country had its intrinsic appeals: a slow pace of gradual movement, an

appreciation for the valley’s environs, and working with and not against

nature. That feeling of connectedness has been the cornerstone of ZD’s

success and that same attitude certainly shines through in their wine

tasting experiences. Whether you’re tromping around their organic

vineyard during the Eco Tour or overlooking Rutherford’s famous

vineyards during the Vineyard View Tour, you will find yourself with a

deeper appreciation of organic winegrowing and the attention to detail it

takes to make world-class wine.

ZD prides itself as an eco-friendly winery, and equally a winery that

produces world-class wine. They do a great job connecting the relationship

between healthy, balanced grapevines to the quality of wine in the bottle.

Take ZD’s Eco Tour and you’ll learn all about the great lengths taken to

produce flavorful grapes in a way that is symbiotic with nature. As you sip

your way around the vineyard, you are exposed to the sights, smells and

sounds of organic farming: the cover crops, insectaries, owl boxes and

composting. All their equipment runs on biodiesel. They use hybrid

vehicles and solar power, implemented waste reduction programs and a

water recycling system.

If a walkabout in the vineyard isn’t for you, ZD offers a variety of tour

and tasting experiences to choose from, like the Cellar Tour, which offers

28

visitors several current vintage and reserve wines with a private guided

tour through the cellar and a sampling of soon to be released wine

maturing in the barrel.

A Private Group Tour & Tasting provides a relaxed experience where

groups of people can enjoy a private tasting in the intimate environment of

its barrel rooms.

The Vineyard View Tour & Tasting is an experience in the

eponymous room with its west-Valley-facing floor-to-ceiling windowed

space and exterior deck above the crushpad at the top of the winery. From

there, you can see the entire property as you enjoy the wines

complemented by artisan cheeses and finished with a decadent chocolate

truffle. All tours require an appointment.

ZD also offers daily tastings, just drop by their Rutherford winery on

the Silverado Trail between 10 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. They offer a tasting of

current wines and a reserve tasting with selections from the library.

ZD Wines was founded by two aerospace engineers involved in the

1960s space race, Norman deLeuze and partner Gino Zepponi. The “ZD”

in ZD Wines has two meanings: the obvious, the initials of the partners,

and the inspirational – “Zero Defects,” a quality-control program used to

build rocket engines.

With a love of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, they set out to make their

favorite Burgundian wines. They received their winery permit in 1969, the

first new permit issued in decades, and subsequently fell in love with the

Carneros grape growing region where the first ZD wines were produced. It

was the beginning of a journey that had included three-generations.

ZD produces more than excellent Cabernet, Chardonnay and Pinot

Noir, they also produce special winery-only bottlings, known as the Rosa

Lee “Whims,” including, at various times, releases of Barbera, Malbec,

Muscat Canelli, Mourvèdre, Petit Sirah, Pinot Grigio, Riesling and Viognier

– the newest is a delicious and not-to-be-missed Grenache Rosé.

Perhaps the wine most symbolic of ZD’s approach to sustainable

winegrowing is its Founder’s Reserve Pinot Noir, made from the grapes off

of its organic estate vineyard in the Carneros region. This wine is a tribute

to Norman, who was the motivational force behind ZD’s philosophy of

eco-friendly business practices and organic farming.

Its flagship wine, Abacus, is the ultimate Cabernet Sauvignon,

combining the best qualities of an aged wine with the best of a youthful

wine, together in one sumptuous mouthful. Incredible depth and

complexity along with a deep, lingering finish are backed by an intense

Look for us on Facebook and become a Fan!

fruit character.

The concept was born on a deLeuze family retreat, when ZD

Winemaster, Robert and his brother, Brett were enjoying a wonderful

Cabernet Sauvignon from the ZD library. They agreed that the deep

complexity and subtle nuances that develop in older wines are always

accompanied by a loss of fruit. What if there was a way to blend the

elegance of an older Cabernet Sauvignon with the intensity of fruit found

in a younger wine? Their answer was a “solera style” multiple-vintage blend

of every ZD Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon ever produced, which is held in

barrel until bottling.

ZD offers an Abacus Tasting, which includes a comprehensive tour of

the ZD cellar and finishes in the Vineyard View Room for a sit-down

tasting of its current reserve wines and a bottle of Abacus, complemented

with artisan cheese selections and charcuterie. The tasting is finished with a

decadent chocolate truffle.

The ZD experience doesn’t have to end when you leave; they bring your

experience full circle. Those folks who tasted the young wines from barrel

will receive an email from ZD letting them know that the young wine they

sampled is now a finished wine in the bottle and is available to them.

Following a wine from barrel to bottle is an experience that all wine

enthusiasts should experience. To witness simple flavors and aromas evolve

into complex layers of hedonistic delight is a perfect punctuation to the

perfect Napa Valley experience.

One Vineyard, One Wine, Made Right: David Fulton

Winery’s Petite Sirah … The Awards Are Piling Up!

david Fulton Winery, a historic petite Sirah producer, announces

the newest accolade awarded to their 2008 petite Sirah, Old vines:

4-Star gold medal – Orange County Fair’s Commercial Wine Competition

This special designation indicates that the wine received a gold medal

recommendation from four judges on a panel. Since this is not a “consensus

judging” i.e. the judges do not confer among themselves to determine what

award they will make, but arrive at their recommendation individually, a rare

occurrence indeed. This year, out of a total of 2,762 entries only 39 Four Star

Gold wines received this prestigious honor.

The Orange County Fair’s Commercial Wine Competition is the largest and

most comprehensive judging of California wines in the world. The OC Fair

Wine Competition is now renowned worldwide, and is considered by many

to be one of the country’s premier judgings. The first OC Fair Commercial

Wine Competition was held in 1977.

In addition, David Fulton’s 2008 Petite Sirah has also received: 92

Points Wine Spectator April 2012 (#1 in “other” category!); Gold American

Fine Wine Competition, Boca Raton, FL 2012; Gold San Diego International

Wine Comp 2012; Silver Women’s Int’l Wine Comp & Silver San Francisco

Chronicle’s Int’l Wine Comp, 2012.

The 2008 Old-Vines Petite Sirah holds true to previous releases of

elegance. This vintage provides a wider range of bright, high-tone fruit flavors

emanating from the expected deep, dark color of the varietal. We found

pleasing aromas of blackberry, fig, cinnamon, dark baker’s chocolate and

licorice along with flavors of red cherry, boysenberry, raspberry and distinct

vanilla on the palate. With soft tannins, this is a round, velvety, silky wine that

will not need much cellaring to enjoy.

“We have one vineyard and make just one wine here at David Fulton

Winery. Our total production is less than 400 cases a year. (The Valley’s

largest winery produces nine million cases a year!) We hand-sort our grapes

three times before fermentation and have a three year aging program before

release.” Says David Fulton Winery’s Stephanie Trotter Zacharia.

The David Fulton Winery 2008 Petite Sirah is grown in the historic St.

Helena, estate vineyards planted in 1860. David Fulton also built the town’s

first stone wine cellar next to the vineyard. He invented the celebrated “One-

Horse-Plow” which reduced spacing between rows from 14’ to 8’ thereby revolutionizing

plantings in the Napa Valley. The current winery was built on the

foot print of the original reusing some of the same materials, looking much

like it did in the early years.

The vineyard and winery’s current owners are David Fulton’s greatgrandson,

Fulton Mather and his wife, Dink. The grapes are picked each year

and sorted along with wine club members, friends and family, by hand before

fermentation. The resulting wine is consistently highly acclaimed among their

peers and a favorite referral among Petite Sirah fans.

David Fulton Winery & Vineyards is located at 825 Fulton Lane, just four

blocks east of Hwy 29, in historic St. Helena. Visitors are encouraged to visit

the winery although tours and tasting are by appointment only. You should

note that the winery doesn’t have commercial signage, so you’ll have to look

for the address (825 Fulton Lane) to enjoy the winery’s private setting!

CADE Estate Winery Announces the

Appointment of Danielle Cyrot as Winemaker

CADE Estate Winery Partner and General Manager John Conover

recently announced the appointment of Danielle Cyrot to the position

of winemaker at CADE Estate Winery.

Cyrot brings to CADE a diversity of winemaking experience.

Having grown up with a French father with whom she took annual

trips to France, Cyrot was exposed to the winemaking history of her

family from a young age. Her great-grandfather was the last in a long

line of ancestors who owned the Cyrot vineyard in Burgundy’s prestigious

Côte de Beaune. After losing his eldest son in World War I,

he donated the land to the Hospices de Beaune (a Cyrot cuvée is still

sold at the renowned charity auction each year).

Cyrot had no plans to carry on her family’s winemaking legacy

when she enrolled at the University of California, Davis; however,

that quickly changed when she took an introductory winemaking

class and knew she had found her calling. While at Davis, Cyrot

worked harvests at Schramsberg and Artesa in Napa Valley, learning

the trade from the soil up. After graduating with a Bachelor of

Science degree in viticulture and enology, Cyrot worked abroad at

wineries in Alsace, France and South Australia.

Cyrot comes to CADE Estate Winery from St. Clement, where she

was praised for crafting elegant, structured and balanced wines with

refined tannins. Before taking on the role at St. Clement, Cyrot

worked as an enologist and was then promoted to assistant winemaker

at Stag’s Leap under her mentor, Robert Brittan.

Conover, who is also a partner and the general manager of Odette

Estate and the general manager of PlumpJack Winery, said, “We are

very pleased to have found such a talented and dedicated winemaker

for CADE. Her knowledge of winemaking regions around the world

and the intimate understanding of Napa Valley she has acquired over

32

the past 13 years will serve as great assets to the winery. We have

every confidence that Danielle will uphold and enhance the commitment

to quality winemaking, technology and environmental responsibility

that have been CADE’s hallmarks since its opening in 2009.”

About CAdE

Perched high upon Napa Valley’s Howell Mountain among a

dramatic hillside of Manzanita trees, CADE Winery is a unique,

state-of-the-art facility producing an exquisite Estate Cabernet as well

as an enticing Sauvignon Blanc and a rich Cabernet Sauvignon from

local artisanal grapes. Having received its Gold LEED certification in

2009, CADE is the greenest winery estate in California. The name

CADE derives from a Shakespearean term used for an oak cask or

barrel. The estate comprises more than 54 acres, 21 of which were

planted as vineyards in 2003. CADE is dedicated to the production

of world-class wines through environmentally conscious innovation

and is one of the architectural showplaces of Northern California’s

wine country.

CADE Winery (www.cadewinery.com) is located at 360 Howell

Mountain Road in Angwin, California. CADE is open for tastings by

appointment only seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.. CADE

can be reached by calling (707) 965-2746.

Judd’s Hill Winery and MicroCrush continues their tradition of

inviting the community to join in a rabbinical blessing of the harvest

“It is important for us to take a moment to celebrate and give thanks

for everything (workers, weather, functioning equipment, etc.) that

brings us a successful harvest season,” says vintner and co-owner

Judd Finkelstein. The blessing is free to attend and will take place

from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Sunday, October 7th, during the Jewish

The winery also invites visitors to picnic in their sukkah, the

traditional temporary hut constructed for the holiday, during the

holiday, which falls between October 1st and 8th this year.

When they are not busy hosting the community during harvest

blessings, the Finkelstein family produces balanced, food-friendly

wines under their Judd’s Hill label and also makes wines for other

wine enthusiasts in lots as small as a single barrel (24 cases) in their

Custom MicroCrush program.

California Syrah Rises to the Top

One of the first comprehensive tastings of

California Syrahs is the focus of the 8th Annual

Wine Advocate Seminar and Tasting at the CIA at

Greystone’s campus in the Napa Valley. Held on

Tuesday, October 16, at 1:30 p.m. and hosted by

wine critic Antonio Galloni, the event benefits The

Wine Advocate Endowed Scholarship fund for

students of the college’s Rudd Center for

Professional Wine Studies. Tickets may be

purchased online or by calling (707) 967-2400.

While the great French Syrahs are well known

and sought after, as are those from Australia, where

it is known as Shiraz, only recently have Syrahs

from California begun to gain attention and

popularity. In the last few vintages, California

winemakers have hit their stride with the varietal,

earning accolades from critics and consumers for

making complex wines with a personality all their

own – and this tasting event will feature 12 of these

extraordinary California Syrahs.

The one-of-a-kind tasting will be led by The

Wine Advocate's Antonio Galloni, who was invited

by Robert Parker to join the publication in 2006.

Mr. Galloni’s “beat” was soon expanded to include

Champagne, Chablis and the Côte d'Or in France,

and he has since assumed responsibilities for

reviewing the wines of California. The Culinary

Institute of America is honored to have Mr. Galloni

continue the annual seminar and tasting series

during his October visits to review California wines.

He will also host the traditional Great Friends,

Great Food, Great Causes…and Great Wine

(BYOB) Dinner at PRESS Restaurant in St. Helena.

California Syrahs are the focus of the 8th Annual Wine

Advocate Tasting with Antonio Galloni at the CIA at

Greystone. The event takes place October 16 at 1:30 p.m.

This event benefits the Robert M. Parker Endowed

Scholarship fund, now over $1.1 million, as well as

The Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City, Mr.

Galloni’s favorite charity.

Welcome to

C A L I S T O G A

Visit Calistoga’s Natural Attraction – The Petrified Forest

Step back in time, over three million years, and follow the trail of

majestic petrified redwood giants arrayed before you in a fascinating

grove in beautiful California wine country.

Over three million years ago a volcano in the direction of Mt. St.

Helena erupted seven miles to the northeast. As Luthur Burbank said,

“A tremedous earthquake shook the country…the earthquake was so

violent that it hurled down the giant redwood…fire, ashes, molten

lava came out and coursed down the valley in which now lies the

Petrified Forest!” This same pale yellow, sandy ash is the soil you

walk on today when you visit the Petrified Forest.

All of the petrified tree tops point in a southwest direction away

from the volcano supporting the theory that the blast knocked the

trees over. When Mt. St. Helens in Washington exploded in 1980,

trees were blown down parallel to a lateral blast from the volcano and

show tops pointing away from the source. These kinds of processes

have been active in the past at the Petrified Forest and are a perfect

example of the geological principle of uniformitarianism. The trees at

Mt. St. Helens were not buried in ash, so they will not be petrified.

Water laden with silicates in the ash seeped down into the gaps

left behind by the decomposing tree fibers: replacing the wood cell by

cell with crystalized silica until the entire tree became stone. Some of

the silica has agatized into a colorful glass-like gemstone.

An ocean covered this area at times during the last three million

years. In the Museum there are fossilized fish and shells that were

found with petrified worms, snails and clams.

There are signs along the 20-minute self-guided tour to point out

the sights and understand the processes that result in the preservation

of these magnificent fossils.

meadow Walk

Take a guided walking tour of the Petrified Forest’s spectacular

upper meadow with Naturalist David Storck.

During the 1/2-mile, round-trip tour, David will explain the

volcanic activity and petrification of the forest. Guests will see a 100-

foot-high ash fall which contains deposits of volcanic material, such

as tuff, rhyolite, iron, petrified wood chunks and obsidian. Also seen

along the Meadow Walk are native trees such as live oak, douglas-fir,

madrone, manzanita, rare wildflowers and a scenic overview of Mt.

St. Helena. Meadow walk tours are held every Saturday and Sunday

at 11 a.m., weather permitting.

Other days and times are

available by appointment.

Pack a lunch and take

advantage of the picnic area

available on a first-come basis.

Admission prices range from

$5 to $10. Prices for admission

including the Meadow Walk are

$16. Park hours are 9 a.m. to 6

p.m. until October 21, 9 a.m. to

5 p.m. in winter.

The Petrified Forest is at 4100

Petrified Forest Road, Calistoga.

William Zweifel “in studio”

as he fires & forms his weaving

RASGALLERIES

6540 Washington Street, Yountville 94599

www.rasgalleries.com, rasart60@aol.com

Meet Woven

Glass Artist,

William Zweifel

at RASgalleries

on October 5 & 6

meet woven-glass sculptor William Zweifel at an artist

reception Friday, October 5, from 6 to 8 p.m. and Saturday,

October 6, from 2 to 4 p.m. at RASgalleries, Yountville

Fascinated by the fluid movements possible in kilnformed

glass, William Zweifel was drawn to the idea of

finding a way to actually weave glass, giving his sculptures a

new dimension and tactile quality. Years of experimentation

and a lot of broken glass later, he has perfected a true glass

wave that has become the hallmark of his work. “Tranquility

as produced by the gentle movement of a line calls to mind

memories of spring breezes and summer shadows,” he says.

“It is this same feeling, this calmness, that I seek to recreate in

glass.”

A native of Chicago, Zweifel now works from his studio

in rural southern Wisconsin. As a successful entrepreneur he

built and ran a large company. After its sale, he turned fulltime

to his hot glass work and opened near Elkhorn,

Wisconsin to explore his vision in the medium.

“Glass provides permanence, the ability to freeze a

moment or movement in time so that it can be examined

and explored,” Zweifel says of his work. “At the same time,

I find in its very fragility, a metaphor for the fragility of our

existence. Being able to freeze these moments in time, in

such a delicate medium offers me an opportunity to create

the tranquility that I find so comforting.”

Largely self-taught, Zweifel feels fortunate to have

worked with many successful artists in their studios and has

attended the Pilchuck Glass School to further develop his

skills.

He has exhibited in juried shows across the the country

and has won many awards for his work, including the

prestigious NICHE Award in 2005, 2008 and 2011.

Established in 1990, RASgalleries features American art

glass, sculpture and fine art paintings. Zweifel’s sculpture

will be featured at RASgalleries October 5-31, 2012.

RASgalleries is located at 6540 Washington Street,

Yountville (next to Bouchon) and is open daily from 10 a.m.

ALEXANdRA CHARSLEY

CHEF SCHRADER’S SEARED EYE OF

ROUND STEAK WITH ROASTED

RADICCHIO & OYSTER MUSHROOMS

by Chef Alejandra Schrader

2 servings

Seared Eye of Round Steak with

Roasted Radicchio, Oyster Mushrooms

Paired with Judd’s Hill 2008 Merlot

Even though the Finkelstein family of Judd's Hill Winery has been

making wine in the Napa Valley for decades, they continue to find new

ways to innovate and expand the food and wine pairing experience.

These trendsetters have partnered with Chef Alejandra Schrader (from

the popular TV show MasterChef) and she has been creating delicious

recipes to highlight Judd’s Hill wines. Since she was raised in Caracas,

Venezuela and chooses a fit lifestyle, her dishes are loaded with flavor

while still being nutritious.

I was so happy to prepare this meal as steak is one of my favorite

Sunday dinners. I have always enjoyed grilled radicchio but having

roasted it in the oven as the recipe suggests, this will now make an easy

addition to meals throughout the fall and winter! The 2008 Judd’s Hill

Merlot is filled with layers of dark plum, black cherry and currant

which bring out the rich flavor of the beef. Voluminous tannins create a

wine with intense structure that maintains perfect balance, in part due

to its robust front palate fruit. Supple flavors of cherry tobacco, plum

and fig emerge and linger on the smooth finish. This wine exhibits a

wonderful contrast between rich tannins and vibrantly seductive floral

aromatics. Judd’s Hill recommends decanting this wine in its youth to

allow it to open and fully showcase the vintage’s complex elegance.

Judd’s Hill Winery is located right off the Silverado Trail from

downtown Napa. Their tasting room is open daily from 10 a.m. to 4

p.m. by advance appointment so be sure to call ahead, (707) 255-

2332. For more recipes to be paired with any of Judd’s Hill’s food

friendly wines, visit their website at www.juddshill.com and get

inspired!

INGREDIENTS

Coarse sea salt

Freshly ground pepper

Olive oil

2 5-oz eye of round steaks

1 small head of radicchio

¼ cup leeks, thinly sliced

1 garlic clove, thinly minced

Canola oil

2 teaspoons cider vinegar

3 oz oyster mushrooms, cut into pieces, stems trimmed

PREPARATION

Radicchio

Preheat oven to 400°F

Place radicchio wedges in a large bowl. Drizzle with

olive oil and season with sea salt and pepper; toss to

coat. Arrange all wedges on baking tray with one cutside

down and roast until wilted, about 8 minutes. Turn

over to other side and roast about 4 minutes longer.

Remove from oven and set aside.

Mushrooms

Heat 1-2 tbsp of canola oil in a large nonstick skillet

over medium-high heat. Sauté leeks for 2-3 minutes;

add garlic and stir quickly with a wooden spoon. Add

mushrooms, season with salt and pepper and sauté

until golden, about 6 minutes. Add vinegar and sauté

until liquid has evaporated, about 1 minute. Remove

from heat and set aside.

Steak

Pat dry steaks and season with salt and pepper on both

sides. Heat a Tbsp of canola oil on a cast iron skillet over

medium-high/high heat. Sear steaks on both sides until

brown, about 2-3 minutes on each side for

medium/medium-rare.

Plating

Serve each steak with 2 wedges of radicchio and oyster

mushrooms. This dish goes great with a roasted pepper

sauce (see my blog for recipe); it also adds great color!

Garnish with chives or spring onions.

Ca’ Momi Winery Releases Ca’ Rosa Frizzante

A Blushing Sparkler

Ca’ Momi Winery has announced the release of

its newest wine – a frizzante rosé called Ca’ Rosa

Frizzante, which was produced in Napa from

California grapes. This fun, lightly sparkling

summer rosé will pair perfectly with a picnic at

the beach, a day at the pool, or with a light

dinner.

Rosa is made from a blend of Sauvignon Blanc,

Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Muscat grapes, and

has an alcohol level of 11.5%, making it easy to

enjoy. This bright pink wine boasts a nose full of

fruit such as pear, cantaloupe, pineapple and tutti

frutti. On the palate you can identify strawberry, lychee and pear

surrounded by tropical notes.

“Ca’ Rosa came as a result of the great success we have enjoyed

with our Ca’ Secco Frizzante since its release in 2007,” enthused

Winemaker Dario De Conti. “Both of these wines are light-hearted

and pair well with many foods. They are also the perfect

accompaniment for relaxing in the backyard on a warm afternoon.”

Retailing for around $18 per bottle, the wine

may be purchased online at

www.camomiwines.com or at your local wine

shop. Ca’ Rosa Frizzante is available for purchase

throughout the U.S.

Tours, Tours, Tours!

BY MICHELLE J. BAKER

Looking for a behind the scenes tour at a family-owned winery?

Look no further than Balletto Vineyards, where you’ll find a daily tour

at 11 a.m. as well as crush season walk-in tours from 10 a.m. until 2

p.m. on days that the winery is processing grapes.

That’s a lot of touring opportunities at a small winery like Balletto,

one of a very few producers of exclusively estate-grown, estate-bottled

wines in the Russian River Valley. The winery is primarily known for

Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir, but also produces Gewürztraminer,

Chardonnay, Zinfandel, Syrah and even a dessert wine made from

Pinot Gris. The Balletto wine portfolio is most notable for its long list

of awards and 90-plus point ratings combined with its affordable

prices.

John Balletto got his start in agriculture at the tender age of 17. He

and his mother, Hazel, began farming produce after the sudden death

of his father, and the business quickly grew. By the mid-1990s, the

Ballettos were enjoying great success with their vegetable business.

Then tough economic times hit, and the family decided to replant

much of their vegetable land to vineyards.

In 2001, the Ballettos had their first vintage, just over 600 cases of

Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

Today, the family farms 600 acres of vineyards spread throughout

the Russian River Valley. The winery keeps only a select 15% of the

grapes, selling the rest off to 25 different wineries. This year they will

be holding on to more Pinot Noir in order to fulfill the demand for a

wine that sells out quickly every year.

The daily 11 a.m. tours at Balletto are designed around whatever is

happening in the cellar or in the vineyards. During harvest season,

that usually includes a tour through the cellar plus a stroll in the 193-

acre vineyard surrounding the winery (and often a walk past the

“Field of Dreams,” a four-acre parcel the Ballettos turned into a

baseball field for their vineyard workers).

Plan your day so you stay after the tour to enjoy the winery’s

comfortable and shaded patio. Bring along a few sandwiches or a

picnic, grab a bottle of wine in the tasting room and spread out on a

picnic table!

If you can’t make it to the winery for the daily scheduled tour or

the crush-season tour, you can still enjoy a self-guided vineyard tour.

Balletto is one of only eight Sonoma County wineries participating in

Sonoma County Vineyard Adventures, which offers free self-guided

vineyard tours with no advance reservation, weather permitting.

A year of festivities is kicked off with a retrospective tasting

In honor of its 10-year anniversary, Inman Family Wines

Winemaker and Owner, Kathleen Inman, has announced plans for

a year-long series of celebrations beginning with an exclusive

retrospective tasting featuring a complete vertical of Kathleen

Inman’s estate Olivet Grange Vineyard Pinot Noir from 2003-2009.

A dinner paired to Inman wines will follow. The event will take

place on Saturday, October 13 at 4 p.m. at the winery, located at

3900 Piner Road, Santa Rosa. Tickets are extremely limited and

may be purchased for $125 by calling (707) 293-9576.

Ten years ago, Kathleen Inman made her life-long dream official

when she began harvesting her first crop of Pinot Noir and Pinot

Gris from her estate vineyard, Olivet Grange. Just a few years prior,

she had traded her Valentino-shoes lifestyle in England as a

financier for a pair of galoshes and her native California sunshine to

start Inman Family Wines. Kathleen Inman has since been a woman

with an unfaltering mission. She is an advocate for natural

winemaking, organic farming and produces wines that are balanced

and food-friendly with naturally higher acidity. Her sustainable

practices extend beyond the vineyard. The recently opened Inman

Family Wines tasting room is constructed almost entirely of

recycled and repurposed materials and the final phase of

WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK

Inman Family Wines Celebrates 10 Years of Winemaking

construction for the Inman winery has just been completed in time

for harvest. Her entrepreneurial spirit and success is echoed by the

fact that she has expanded production from 70 cases to an

anticipated 4,000 cases this year.

This May, she was honored with a Rising Star award by Women

for WineSense, and in 2011 she was presented with the Best

Practices Award from the Business Environmental Alliance of

Sonoma County. “I often joke that it only took me 10 years to

become an overnight success,” says Kathleen Inman. “In all

seriousness, my biggest accomplishment has been the fact that I

continue to produce wines that I like to drink and that are true to

the Russian River Valley, and that I’ve done so with the support of

my loving husband Simon and our two daughters.”

Inman Family Wines handcrafts small lots of estate-grown Pinot

Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Gris. The estate wines reflect the

unique imprint of the Olivet Grange Vineyard (OGV), located

amidst some of Sonoma County’s and the Russian River Valley's

most respected vineyards. Inman Family Wines is committed to

quality from grape to glass – from sensitive, organic and sustainable

viticultural practices, to great attention to detail in the winemaking.

Inman Family Wines can be found at many fine dining restaurants

and are also available for purchase online at

Rick Sayre is a hard-working, well-respected winemaker who has been working in Sonoma

County’s wine industry since 1970. Along with his years of practical, hands-on experience, he

possesses movie-star-quality easy charm and good looks (he will probably blush when he reads this

about himself – he’s a humble man).

Rick was born in Ann Arbor, Michigan and grew up in Southern California. He and his family

moved to Sonoma County in 1966. Shortly thereafter, his parents bought a ten-acre prune ranch in

Windsor, where Rick and his lovely wife Peggy still live today.

When Rick was a teenager, both of his parents worked full-time (his mom was a schoolteacher and

his dad was in construction), so Rick ran the ranch…and he hated it. Here’s a little-known factoid

about Sonoma County’s agricultural history – back when Rick was tending the family ranch, school

would be delayed for up to two weeks in the fall so the local kids could harvest prunes. What child

labor laws?

Even though Rick hated agriculture back then, it took root in his soul and he soon found himself

working at Simi Winery in 1970, and loving it. During his years at Simi, he worked with MaryAnn

Graf (the first American female winemaker), Zelma Long and winemaking legend André Tchelistcheff,

who became Rick’s mentor. “André took as much pride in the people he trained as he took in his wines

– I was fortunate to be one of those people,” Rick tells me with a shy smile.

“It’s so important to be aware of everything,” Rick says. “André taught me that a winemaker must

live with his wine; even the smallest details can have an effect.

Rick worked hard at Simi, alongside luminaries André Tchelistcheff, MaryAnn Graf and Zelma Long

for the next nine years. “I did everything,” Rick tells me. “At Simi, everyone did everything.”

In November of 1979, Rodney Strong came calling, and Rick signed on to make the winery’s estate,

reserve and Sonoma County varietal wines. His position at Rodney Strong also included crafting

Méthode Champenoise sparkling wines, so he spent several weeks studying all things bubbly at Piper-

Heidsieck in the Champagne region of France.

Many award-winning wines later (and other awards too - including “Winemaker of the Year”), Rick

is still happily working away at Rodney Strong. Vineyards. He is passionate about what he does and is

very involved in all aspects of winemaking, from the vineyard to the bottle.

What’s New at this Year’s

Sonoma County Harvest Fair

One of Sonoma County’s most popular annual events is back

October 5, 6 and 7. New at this year’s Sonoma County Harvest Fair

will be a fun contest for high school-aged budding chefs, as well as

cooking competitions for professionals where fair-goers can watch

and learn. There also will be a “school” any beer aficionado would

love, lots of new farm-themed attractions and activities, some

special pricing for admission, and value-focused packages.

Cooking Competitions

Friday, October 5, students from Sonoma County high schools

that have culinary programs will be competing in an “Iron Chef”

type contest. Participants will each receive the same set of

ingredients, and will create their best gastronomic masterpieces.

Saturday, October 6, professionals and amateurs will be competing

(in separate categories) to see who can create the best grilled cheese

sandwich. Sunday, October 7, another cooking competition will

identify the best quesadilla in the county.

Beer School

What could be better for beer lovers than engaging the senses

and learning all about their favorite beverage? The new Cheesy Beer

School will include a Lagunitas “short course” using five popular

microbrews, paired with local cheeses. The courses will run for 20

minutes at 4:30 p.m. Friday; and 1, 3 and 5 p.m. Saturday and

Sunday. People can sign up prior to the fair at www.harvestfair.org.

On Saturday, October 6 from 1-5 p.m. in the fair's village area

between the Hall of Flowers and the Garrett Building, there will also

be a microbrew tasting sponsored by Lagunitas.

Farm Fun

Sweet Lil’s Farmery will be on hand with hatching chicks,

barnyard animals, and perhaps best of all, a faux cow kids and

adults can milk. Another hot spot during the entire Harvest Fair will

be the new Pumpkin Stage – the setting for not only the giant

pumpkin weigh-off, but other pumpkin-themed fun, like carving,

painting, and even an Easy Bake Oven bake-off to determine the

best pumpkin cake.

Returning Favorites

Last year’s new Grand Tasting event proved popular with

attendees and will be back this year on Friday, October 5, from 5:30

to 8 p.m. All “best of show” and gold medal-winning wines and

food will be available for unlimited tastes with ticket purchase.

Of course, the World Championship Grape Stomp will be back

this year with more than a dozen qualifying stomps before the big

final on Sunday, October 7 at 5 p.m.

This three-day celebration of the Sonoma County lifestyle will

also feature chef demonstrations, delicious cuisine, wine seminars,

an art exhibition and sale, ongoing musical performances, farm and

harvest agricultural activities for children and adults, and much

more. For ticket prices, schedules and more information, visit

New Tasting Room and Marketplace

– 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.

viANSA WiNERY

Something Magical

BY MIKE HYLAND

If there is one thing that truly stands out about Viansa Winery and Marketplace it

is that they really take care of their wine club members. With two outdoor seating

areas reserved expressly for members with views that are truly outstanding coupled

with world-class wines, it is easy to see why so many people join the club.

“There is something kind of magical about this property and the Sonoma Valley

in general,” says Lloyd Davis, president and co-owner of Viansa since 2008. “When

you come here it is more laid back, more friendly than other wine country

destinations. In many cases, you will be able to talk with the owner or the

winemaker and get an inside look at how the winemaking process really works.”

Lloyd Davis grew up in Manhattan, in a family that regularly enjoyed wine with

meals. While in college his passion for wine grew. After graduating with a degree in

finance, Lloyd joined the ranks of the New York financial world where he provided

capital to companies to support growth and acquisitions. He eventually became a

partner as well as chief credit officer at Laurus/Valens Master Fund, a $2 billion

Hedge Fund. It was at this company that he made an investment in Viansa. When

the opportunity arose to take control, Lloyd jumped at the chance.

“For me, running Viansa is a dream come true,” says Lloyd. “I work seven days a

week and I enjoy every minute of it. From working behind the bar, pruning the

vines or accompanying our Tuscan wine club members on a Mediterranean cruise to

Italy, it is exactly what I want to do at this time in my life.”

Situated on a hilltop at the entrance to the Sonoma Valley, Viansa

is usually the first stop on many travelers’ tour of the wine county.

With its distinctive Italian atmosphere and old world architecture,

Viansa is a tribute to the early Italian immigrants who brought their

winemaking traditions and in some cases, their grapes, to the

Sonoma Valley many, many years ago.

Surrounded by vineyards, flower gardens and olive groves, the

main winery building appears to have been transported from the

Italian countryside. Crafted from authentic materials and boasting

details like hand-painted interior frescoes depicting peasant life in the

Tuscan hills, Viansa’s villa can easily transport visitors away to

romantic Italy, if only for an hour or two.

And then there are the wines! Viansa pioneered the concept of

Cal-Ital wines – California made wines crafted from Italian varietals

grown here in Sonoma. Using traditional Italian grapes such as

Arneis, Pinot Grigio, Tocai Friulano, Vernaccia, Dolcetto, Primitivo,

Sangiovese and Barbera, Viansa’s winemaking team creates the flavors

of the old world right here in the new world. And in addition to all

the great Italian varietals, they also have created a menu filled with

many of the popular California wines such as Chardonnay, Sauvignon

Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Syrah and

Cabernet Franc.

And let’s not forget the Viansa “Signature Series” wines that

represent the “best of the best.” These wines are single vineyard

designate wines created by Lloyd Davis, with no more than 150 cases

of each wine made within a vintage. They express the best that Viansa

has to offer and as a result, have become highly collectible. Only

Signature Club members are eligible for the wine club discount on

these wines.

“While I am naturally very pleased with the reaction and response

to our Signature Series, I am totally committed to maintaining

Viansa’s Italian heritage, offering a very wide selection of world-class

wines, focusing on exceptional customer service and treating every

guest as family,” says Lloyd.

Sonoma Valley Wine Trolley Expands Service, Adds New Route

visitors have even more choices to see wine country in a unique way

All aboard for a new way to see wine country! One of the Bay

Area’s favorite modes of transportation now roams the quaint streets

and vineyards of the gorgeous Sonoma Valley, offering open-air views

that allow guests to experience wine country like they never have

before. And now, the Sonoma Valley Wine Trolley has added a new

route, giving guests a choice of two memorable experiences.

Reservations may be purchased at www.sonomavalleywinetrolley.com,

or by calling 1-877-WINE-TROLLEY.

The new route begins at the historic Sonoma Plaza and meanders

into the town of Glen Ellen and the Kenwood area, including stops at

Benziger Family Winery, Imagery Winery, Paradise Ridge in Kenwood

and Deerfield Ranch Winery. This excursion is offered in addition to

the Sonoma Valley Wine Trolley’s original route, which includes stops

at four boutique wineries located in and around the town of Sonoma.

Both tours are $99 per person and include a gourmet lunch catered

by the acclaimed the girl & the fig restaurant. The Sonoma Valley

Wine Trolley experience begins with a daily passenger pickup at

10:30 a.m. from the town of Sonoma's Historic Downtown Plaza.

Arrangements for pickup at several Sonoma hotel locations can be

made prior to 10:30 a.m.

“We’ve added this new experience to give visitors a chance to visit

more quality wineries in our area, and to be able to do that in a fun,

memorable way that is affordable,” says Craig Haskell, General

Manager of the Sonoma Valley Wine Trolley. “Guests are able to leave

the driving to us, while they sit back and enjoy the scenery and the

great wines.”

The Sonoma Valley Wine Trolley is a hand-built replica of a

California Street Cable Car that was used in San Francisco from the

late 1890s to the early 1930s. Every detail from the all-wooden

carriage to the solid brass bell is an authentic feature. It is an open-air

cable car, allowing for a more sensory experience with unobstructed

views, and the aromas of the vineyards, especially during crush. The

wine trolley tours daily throughout the year, so guests are encouraged

to dress warmly throughout the cooler months.

The Sonoma Valley Wine Trolley is owned by Appellation Tours, a

local company founded 11 years ago by Tom Buck. Tom and his wife,

Georgia, have successfully built a highly acclaimed limousine and

touring company, offering high quality customer service, comfortable

transportation, and knowledgeable drivers. These standards, the

relationships they've established with businesses in Napa and

Sonoma, and their drive to provide unique wine tasting experiences

for locals and visitors, are the foundation of this family-owned

company. For more information, visit

Wine Tasting in

LIVERMORE VALLEY Wine Country

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.

Wine Tasting on

TREASURE ISLAND

Come Discover the

Hidden Treasures

by Robert Amox, Proprietor & Vintner

KNIGHTSWOOD VINEYARDS & WINERY AND BODEGA WINE ESTATES

One of the most often-asked questions

winery visitors ask is some form of, “Why

Treasure Island?” It has not been a direct

route from the pastoral vineyards of

Sonoma County to the former Naval base

with its curious blend of peaceful

avenues, transitional ghost buildings and

stunning views of every San Francisco

landmark. Doing the same thing as

everyone else is seldom the path for me.

Not only do I listen to a different

drummer, I’ll probably make his drum different, too. Instead of

opening yet another winery in Sonoma County, I was drawn in by the

unique location and environment. No one had attempted to make

wine here, but re-utilizing these buildings with the correct infrastructure

already in place was a great opportunity. I co-founded the first

multi-winery property on the Island, then split off to establish Bodega

Wine Estates in another building that became available.

My love affair with wine and food developed over many years.

Never content with being a bystander, my journeys led me to learn to

cook, grow grapes and make wine. It is a process in motion, always

seeking the best out there – learn from the best, source the best and

make the best. I am always looking to combine the timeless trinity of

food, wine and friends. The “Bodega” (Spanish for “cellar”) provides a

vehicle for these passions and to share them with others. Besides my

winery, Knightswood, I provide space in the Bodega for other artisan

winemakers.

A visit to the comfortably appointed tasting room provides our

guests with an unhurried, welcoming experience as well as a range of

wines to sample and purchase. On any afternoon, one can expect a

warm greeting from our group. Terri is a delightful hostess and multilingual

expatriate who spent many years living in Madrid, Spain. She

provides much of the inspiration behind the designs and events. A
