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

What information on a wine label is most important?

When shopping for wine, beyond looking for the name of a

reliable producer, it helps to gather other information from the

label to better understand what you are buying. Some basic items

to examine: the appellation (a geographic name); a vineyard

designation; the term “Estate-Bottled” and the term “Reserve.” A

wine’s vintage should not play a large role in your decision unless

you know of a specific year that you want.

The appellation designation, also known as the American

Viticultural Area designation, or AVA, will identify where the

grapes were grown. The broadest and most general designation is a

state name, like “California” or “Oregon.” A broad geographic area

designation usually indicates a wine without the unique

characteristics that a more narrow geographic designation, such as

Edna Valley, Napa Valley or Santa Ynez Valley, would possess. The

reason is because broad AVA designations allows the winemaker to

blend grapes from anywhere in the entire region. When I compare

labels of similar-type wines that I have never tasted and am

unfamiliar with, I almost always select the one with the smaller

AVA in order to get an impression of the more specific geography.

A wine label that includes the name of a vineyard, in addition to

the AVA, is getting even more specific with geography. A single

vineyard may have its own unique soil or climate and produce a

wine that is different enough to demand a separate and distinct

identification on the label.

Of less importance, the term “Estate-Bottled” means the grapes

were grown on either the producer's estate property or in

vineyards that are within his appellation and with whom he has

long-term contracts. In other words, production remained under

the control of one company from start to finish.

Finally, the term “Reserve” will sometimes be used to identify a

wine that the producer believes to be among its best. “Reserve”

could mean that the grapes were hand harvested, or selected from

hillside vines only, or the wine was given more time in barrel for

aging. For these reasons, “Reserve” wines will usually be priced

higher than the producer’s non-reserve wines.

And, don’t forget to check the alcohol content. The trend is to

make full-bodied, bolder wine these days and a higher alcohol

level usually goes along with that. Twenty years ago, the average

alcohol content in wine was around 12%. Today, it is probably

more like 13% to 14%.

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.

CHALK HILL

VINEYARDS & WINERY

Open daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

10300 Chalk Hill Road, south of downtown Healdsburg

in Sonoma County, California

From San Francisco it’s a 90-minute drive north on Highway 101

Reservations can also be booked online at www.vinovisit.com

CHALK HILL VINEYARDS & WINERY

Perhaps no other winery captures the casual luxury of Sonoma County better than Chalk

Hill Estate. Founded nearly four decades ago, this spectacular property features 1,300 acres

of wilderness areas interspersed with 300 acres of vineyards, a winery, a hospitality center,

culinary gardens, residences, stables, an equestrian pavilion, sports fields, fishing and

swimming ponds, and guest houses.

The highest points of the estate offers visitors stunning views of the Russian River Valley

to the west and the Mayacamas Mountains to the east. This is one of the most awe-inspiring

vistas in wine country.

From a winemaker’s perspective, the Chalk Hill Estate is considered a warm pocket in a

cool maritime region. The property features 13 soil types ranging from ancient alluvial

deposits to young volcanic soils strewn with rocks and boulders. A distinctive layer of

volcanic ash lies under much of the topsoil, inspiring the name “Chalk Hill.” The complex

soils and climate allow Chalk Hill Estate to produce great wines from a wide range of grape

varieties.

The winery’s vineyards are woven through the native foliage, contoured to fit the intricate

terrain. The vines are farmed using low-input, sustainable viticultural practices to preserve

the long-term viability of the ecosystem. More than two-thirds of the Chalk Hill Estate

remains uncultivated.

In addition to the great scenery, Chalk Hill offers a number of special tours and tastings

including the Estate Culinary Tour.

The Culinary Tour begins at the winery where guests gather and then enjoy a brief

excursions through the vineyards. You will arrive at the new organic culinary garden for a

tour led by estate gardener, Brad Agerter. In addition to learning about the advantages and

benefits of organic farming, guests can visit the new raised garden beds recently cultivated

below the Pavilion. The fruit and vegetables from these organically-farmed gardens are the

inspiration for dishes prepared by Chalk Hill’s Executive Chef, Didier Ageorges. The tour

finishes with a sit-down tasting in the Pavilion – a conservatory overlooking the equestrian

20 www.WineCountryThisWeek.com


WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK

center with panoramic views of

the Chalk Hill valley. There, you

will enjoy a sit-down tasting of

Chalk Hill wines paired with

several small plates prepared by

Chef Didier.

The Estate Tour explores the

history, viticulture and

winemaking practices at the

property. Guests learn about the

special conditions that make

Chalk Hill’s wines so distinctive.

The tour includes a tasting of

current releases.

For equestrians, there are the

Estate Vineyard Trail Rides. This

90-minute tour around Chalk

Hill’s 1,300 acres is led by

respected polo professional,

Rafael Hernandez.

Finally, there are Winery

Tastings at Chalk Hill’s beautiful

hospitality center overlooking

the natural amphitheater of

vines. Guests are invited to taste

current releases and library

bottlings of Chardonnay,

Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet

Sauvignon, Syrah and Estate Red.

JUDD’S HILL

WINERY & MICROCRUSH

Open daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. by advance appointment

2332 Silverado Trail, Napa, CA 94558

(707) 255-2332 | www.juddshill.com

JUDD’S HILL WINERY & MICROCRUSH

It would be easy to zoom by the small sign and picturesque bridge that mark the

entrance to one of Napa’s friendliest and most highly regarded boutique wineries. But,

those in the know, slow down as they round the curve past the strawberry stand at the

south end of the Silverado Trail, and hang a right over the tree-lined bridge crossing

Milliken Creek to cruise up the gravelly road. Judd’s Hill Winery and MicroCrush

should be on the top of your list of places to taste if you are looking for great wines and

an informal familial setting. Owned and run by two generations of the Finkelstein

family, Judd’s Hill remains one of the few places in Napa where you are likely to have

personal interaction with the owners when you visit for a tasting.

The Finkelstein family of Judd’s Hill has been making wine in the Napa Valley since

the 1970s, when they founded their first winery, Whitehall Lane. After the sale of

Whitehall Lane, Judd’s Hill Winery was founded in 1989 with the vision of making

small-lot handcrafted wines that are balanced and food-friendly. “Having a good time

making great wine with family” was and continues to be the winery’s motto.

A wide variety of wines are poured in their tasting room, which is open daily from

10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Currently, they are featuring their Sauvignon Blanc, Rosé, Estate Pinot

Noir, Old Vine Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon. From time to time, “bonus bottles”

from the library or pre-release wines will be added into the flight to give their guests a

special treat. Visitors with a desire to take their wine country experience to a more

interactive and hands-on level should make an appointment to take part in their “Bottle

Blending Day Camp.” BBDC participants work with a Judd’s Hill Blending Guide to craft

their perfect Bordeaux-style wine from four different barrel samples of Cabernet

Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Once your favorite cuveé has been decided

upon, you’ll be led into the cellar where you’ll assist in hand-bottling, labeling and the

application of foil capsules to the bottlenecks. You then get to take your personallycrafted

wine with you the same day. The whole process takes about two hours and it’s a

fun and edifying experience for singles, couples and groups of all sizes.

If a few bottles of your own wine isn’t enough to quench your thirst, Judd’s Hill also

has a MicroCrush service in which clients can make a barrel or more of their own wine.

You can craft your own blend of a selection of barrels in the Judd’s Hill cellar or make

wine with grapes from Judd’s Hill grower-partners or from your own vineyard.

From a quick tasting to a multi-year wine making project, Judd’s Hill is the perfect

option for anyone with the desire to “have a good time making (or tasting) great wine

with family!”

WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK

B.R. Cohn Wine and Cheese Trail Pairing

BY MIKE HYLAND

When you think about wine, you naturally think about cheese. It’s like peanut butter

and jelly or maybe even Laurel and Hardy, you don’t usually think about one without

the other. When something goes together perfectly, it’s hard to tear them apart. The

folks at B.R. Cohn have created the ultimate Wine & Cheese Trail Pairing that takes

place at the winery every Friday through Monday at 1 p.m., and not just for the

summer months, but all year long.

“We select the finest cheeses from Sonoma, Marin and Napa counties,” said wine

educator Chris Schuur who directs the program for the winery and is easily considered

the main cheese head. “We use nothing but local cheeses and seek out the smallproduction

artisans creating the most flavorful products to pair with our wines. Our

Cheese Trail program gives our guests a sense of the agricultural aspects of our area.”

The wine and cheese tasting takes place in the original milking barn on the B.R.

Cohn property, where owner Bruce Cohn grew up. The cheese selections as well as the

wine selections change often with each pairing consisting of four wines and four

cheeses. The Cheese Trail tasting fee is $20 for wine club members and $25 for the

general public. You can call 1-800-330-4064 extension 124 to make a reservation

during your next visit to wine country.

“We have traveled the countryside seeking out excellent cheeses that will pair well

with our wines,” said Schuur, “Some of our vendors include Vella Cheese from

downtown Sonoma and Point Reyes from Marin County. The program is a natural

extension of our gourmet shop that includes a variety of olive oils, vinegars, mustards

and the like.”

There are some 12 different varieties of award-winning olive oils, 12 different

vinegars, plus herb, seafood and steak rubs, three different mustards as well as three

olive tapenades. Additionally, the gourmet shop also features dessert sauces including a

Chardonnay caramel sauce and a chocolate Cabernet wine sauce as well as chocolate

raspberry Cabernet fudge. There is a little something for everyone in the gourmet shop.

And, let’s not forget the wines. The list of award-winning vintages includes three

Estate wines, 2009 Zinfandel Olive Hill Estate, 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Olive Hill

Estate and 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Special Edition. Also on the tasting list are the

2009 Pinot Noir Russian River, 2009 Zinfandel Sonoma Valley, 2009 Primitivo Sonoma

Valley, 2009 Barbera Mendocino County, SyrCab Sonoma Valley blend, 2009 Cabernet

Franc Sonoma Valley, SyrZin Sonoma Valley blend, Merlot Sonoma Valley, 2009 Malbec

Sonoma Valley, 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley, 2008 North Coast Petite Sirah

and 2008 Sonoma Valley Syrah.

The white wine tastings include the 2011 San Luis Obispo County Rosé, 2011

Sonoma Valley Pinot Gris and the 2010 Carneros Chardonnay. Additionally there are

two dessert wines, the 2008 Cabernet Port Olive Hill Estate and the 2008 Late Harvest

Semillon, plus a host of library selections, large format bottles and numerous verticals

from which to choose.

“We are in the epicenter of a cheese renaissance,” Schuur continues, “yet why spend

all day driving from dairy to dairy on the Cheese Trail? Come to B.R. Cohn winery and

relax while we showcase revolving selections of the most exquisite cheeses from the

Sonoma-Marin Cheese Trail, seasonally appropriate, paired with elegant and awardwinning

wines in our Glen Ellen Hamlet . When you are traveling in the Sonoma Valley

and you are looking for ultra premium wines, extra virgin olive oils, handcrafted

vinegars and gourmet food products, pull in to B.R. Cohn and enjoy your visit on a

historic property filled with grape vines and olive trees. And, if you happen to arrive

over a weekend, check out the Wine & Cheese Trail Pairing. Taste some of the best

wines and best cheeses in all of wine country.

SUMMER AT ST. FRANCIS

Wine, Food & Film Take Center Stage in Sonoma Valley

26

ST. FRANCIS WINERY & VINEYARDS

Open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

100 Pythian Road at Highway 12, Santa Rosa

1-888-675-WINE | www.stfranciswinery.com

For nearly 35 years, St. Francis Winery in Sonoma Valley has produced fruit

forward, full-bodied wines from superior mountain and valley vineyards in Sonoma

County’s top appellations, earning scores of impressive accolades along the way.

While wine has always been the star at St. Francis, food plays a magnificent

supporting role.

Executive Chef David Bush heads up the winery’s onsite kitchen, crafting

unforgettable culinary experiences designed to reflect the beauty, charm and

agricultural heritage of Sonoma Valley. The winery’s multicourse wine and food

pairing is unsurpassed in wine country, offering what one popular food writer

described as “small plates that rival the kitchen of any Michelin-starred restaurant.”

Chef Bush, whose résumé includes Sonoma’s the girl & the fig restaurant,

masterfully pairs his creative dishes with St. Francis’ award-winning wines. The

menu changes seasonally but offers an array of gourmet delicacies.

Mouthwatering selections include items like slow roasted spice-rubbed shoulder

of local lamb tasted alongside the St. Francis 2007 Sonoma Valley Anthem Meritage

blend. Chef’s Banh Mi sandwich with grilled sirloin and housemade duck rillette

bring out the luscious fruit and spice in the St. Francis 2009 “Old Vines” Zinfandel,

a wine rated 91 points by Wine & Spirits. A recent dessert course paired the winery’s

2009 Port, a Double Gold Medal winner at the San Francisco Chronicle Wine

Competition, with decadent chocolate fondue.

“My philosophy about wine and food pairing is that there are

no rules,” Chef Bush says. “I like to take risks. My ultimate goal is

to surprise people and for them to leave with a different view of

how wine and food work together.”

St. Francis’ dining room, with its tiled fireplace and spectacular

vineyard views, is the ideal setting for Chef Bush’s break-the-rules

pairings. Guests sit together at a custom-designed round table,

guided through each course by an expert host who highlights key

components and shares some of the winery’s history. The

experience is relaxed, friendly and educational, showcasing the

best Sonoma County has to offer.

Planted just steps away from the winery’s dining room, is the

winery’s new two-acre estate vegetable garden uses organic

farming practices to produce a bounty of seasonal vegetables,

berries and fruits for Chef’s kitchen.

“The garden gives me an opportunity to create wine and food

pairings using the freshest seasonal ingredients grown right

outside our kitchen door,” Bush says. “I have everything I could

possibly want, from lettuces, greens and beets to multiple

varieties of heirloom tomatoes, apples and pears.”

Seated pairings are held Friday-Sunday at 11 a.m., 1 and

3 p.m. There are two seatings on Mondays and Thursdays at

11 a.m. and 2 p.m. The cost is $38 per person. Reservations are

strongly recommended and can be made by calling 1-888-675-

WINE.

For a more informal wine and food paring, St. Francis also

offers the option of relaxing on the outside patio with a glass of

wine or a flight of wines paired with a selection of charcuterie,

featuring local cheeses, housemade patés and rillettes.

The Place to be This Summer!

St. Francis is hosting several events this summer and fall,

including their third annual Stars Under the Stars outdoor film

festival and concert series (see below), their annual Dinner Under

the Stars winery dinner on July 28, a lobster feed for club

members on Saturday, August 11, and the 12th annual Blessing of

the Animals on Sunday, October 7.

Robert Mondavi Winery Summer Concert Series

Napa Valley Winery hosts five artists in festival’s 43rd year

In the spirit of Robert Mondavi’s belief that wine, food and the

arts are an essential part of American life, the 2012 Robert Mondavi

Winery Summer Concert Series began with O.A.R. taking the stage at

the winery on June 30. Multi-platinum singer, songwriter and actor

Josh Groban will perform the final concert on July 21st benefitting

the The Napa Valley School’s Music and Art Programs and his own

Find Your Light Foundation. Margrit Mondavi founded this annual

concert series in 1969, quickly becoming an anticipated wine country

tradition.

Throughout the festival’s 43-year history, more than $2 million in

proceeds has been raised for the Napa Valley Symphony, Napa Valley

Opera House and the Napa Valley Unified School District. Proceeds

from ticket sales of this year’s series will directly benefit the Napa

Valley Unified School District.

Perhaps best known for their hit “Superman,” Five for Fighting

will bring their smooth vocals to the winery on July 14 for the “Hope

in the Vineyard” concert. City of Hope is a national cancer research

and treatment center, providing patients with specialized care.

The summer concert series concludes July 21 with the “Spotlight

on To Kalon” performance by Josh Groban. “Robert Mondavi Winery

is the perfect place to experience the musical genius of Josh Groban.

You can be a part of a world-class musical performance, watch the

moon rise over the vineyard, and enjoy wonderful wines,” says Carl

Jaeger, Estate Director at Robert Mondavi Winery. “Making music and

making wine are both artistic expressions and this performance

marks the beginning of a collaboration between Josh and the

winery.”

“With the goal of sharing our love for the arts with the local

community, we couldn’t imagine a better collection of artists to

perform at this year’s festival,” says Carl Jaeger, Estate Director at

Robert Mondavi Winery. “The diversity of acts coupled with the

unique charities that will benefit

from the concerts combines to

bring evenings of world-class

wine and entertainment, right

here in our backyard.”

The Robert Mondavi Winery

Festival started as a small venture

in the arts, with tickets costing

only $3 and drawing a modest

crowd of 400 attendees. Since its

inception, the festival has hosted

more than 100 performers and

now draws thousands every year.

From the first performance by the

Napa Valley Symphony, a guitar

soloist, and the Xoregos Dance

Company, the festival has grown

32

to showcase world-renowned jazz, R&B and pop artists.

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

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

prices vary by performance. For additional information and to

purchase tickets, including General Admission, Reserved and Dinner

seats, visit www.robertmondaviwinery.com, ticketweb.com or call

STERLING VINEYARDS

Take a Sky Tram to Good Times!

BY JOSH STEIN

Few wineries anywhere directly control more than 1,200 acres of estate

vineyards, and fewer still can lay claim to acreage from across the

complete range of Napa Valley sub-appellations: mountainsides, various

spots on the Valley floor, Carneros and Calistoga. And only one can lay

claim to a “green” sky tram which takes you 300 feet above the Valley,

giving unique views and striking architecture with which to enjoy the

wines: Sterling Vineyards. They’re proof that great things in the wine

business truly do get better as they age!

A legacy of five decades of stewardship continues today as the winery

was one of the first twelve to be certified as a Napa County Green

Winery by the Napa Valley Vintners; Sterling has also received Napa

Valley Green Land certification for its sustainable management, water

conservation and fish-friendly farming across all of its estate vineyards.

Even the tram is solar-powered! This commitment to doing things the

right way naturally extends to the winemaking after the grapes are

grown. Whites are harvested at night, going directly to press as whole

Continued

clusters to preserve quality. Reds are brought to

the crush pad in small boxes and are hand-sorted

before being destemmed and innoculated with

native yeasts. Reserve wines are given even more

special treatment in the micro-winery-withinthe-winery

built in 2008. This 10,000-case

facility across from the caves allows for wholeberry

fermentations, barrel spinning for

micro-fermentations and multiple small lots for

best-of-the-best bottlings.

That commitment to ensuring a legacy of

quality is present in every release, and given the

variety of vineyards and locations under its direct

control – a true rare luxury for the winemakers

in today’s modern global marketplace – it’s not a

surprise to find wines to appeal to all tastes and

lifestyles. Indeed, there are the Napa Valley wines

for which the winery is well known; the Single-

Vineyard releases, which highlight the unique

combination of variety and place within various

parts of the Valley; the Cellar Club wines, small

bottlings of club-only exclusives; the Vintner’s

Collection, which shows off other Sterling

Vineyards in California; and the Reserve wines,

individual, special and rarely bottled. All are

available to taste at the winery, and many can

only be found there altogether.

Beyond the tram and the wines, there is

plenty more to enjoy while on the property. The

layout of the Greek island Mykonos-inspired

white stucco walls allows for wandering amidst

famous artworks and prints, architectural details

and, every once in a while, a random turn reveals

breath-taking views of the Valley’s narrowing

northern quadrant, with the Mayacamas and

Vacas in extreme proximity on both sides. Every

quarter-hour, eight bells recovered from London’s

bombed out Church of St.Dunstans-in-the-East

accompany your movement around the winery’s

facilities. Self-paced by design by utilizing

motion-activated flatscreens, the general

admission tasting and tour covers the tram ride,

the tour, tasting of five wines and a souvenir

wine glass. For those wanting exclusive wines,

there are also the Reserve, Sterling Silver VIP and

Sterling Gold VIP options, which will taste you

through reserve wines, single-vineyard, limitedrelease

and premier bottlings available nowhere

else. The goal is for visitors to be comfortable

and able to enjoy everything the winery

produces.

Half a century ago, Sterling Vineyards was

founded with the ideal of growing grapes in the

best locations the Napa Valley had to offer and

then producing the best possible wines to

showcase those vineyards in an awe-inspiring

setting. Lots of folks have come and gone in that

time, and the winery is still here, doing what it

does best: making wines that speak strongly of

their sources. Come find out for yourself what

more than a quarter million others annually do –

there’re great wines still to be had after all these

years up in Calistoga at Sterling Vineyards. Go

and enjoy – you won’t be sorry!

JACK STORMS

Master of Cold Glass Sculpture

Meet the Artist at RASgalleries

BY RONDA SCHAER

As the owner of RASgalleries, I’ve had the opportunity to meet hundreds

of talented American glass artists over the past twenty-two years. I’m

fascinated by the work of Jack Storms, one of only three cold glass sculptors

in the world. It’s a pleasure to announce that RASgalleries will host Jack

Storms: Master of Cold Glass Sculpture beginning July 13 and continuing

through August 31. In this show, we’ll present Bella Vino, exclusive winethemed

sculptures as well as pieces from his “Cube & Ariel Series.” The show

begins Friday, July 13, with an artist reception from 6 to 8 p.m., and there’s a

second chance to meet Jack Storms on Saturday, July 14 from 2 to 4 p.m.

I recently had the chance to chat with him about his life and work and his

plans for the RASgalleries show.

RASgalleries: Your sculptures radiate and mesmerize. Our clients can’t take their eyes

off them! The spectrum of color makes everyone want to touch the surface of the

crystal. Talk about the first time you touched glass. What drew you to this medium?

Jack Storms: That was a seminal moment for me and it was just that quick.

Sculpting glass is a slow, tedious process but that first day when I stood at the

grinding wheel manipulating the glass and saw what I could do, I was

immediately hooked by both the process and the form. That first day, with the

simple and tedious task of grinding a piece of glass flat and then smooth and

then to a polish, I knew what I wanted to do with the rest of my life. It was

magic to me to transform a piece of glass that looked like a chunk of concrete

into a treasure that shone like a diamond.

RASgalleries: You opened your studio in 2004 and you’re one of very few optic crystal

sculptors in the world. You’ve said that it can take ten weeks or more to complete a

piece. I understand the process is demanding, requiring painstaking construction of a

core of dichroic film on glass. Each piece is cut, polished and laminated, layer after

layer to achieve the geometric rainbows. Your studio must be an interesting place,

describe it and the preparations you must make prior to beginning a new piece, and

explain the steps you take to ensure success. What can go wrong?

Jack Storms: It can all go wrong. That’s one of the main reasons the process

takes the time that it does. There’s a lot of room for error and it’s a constant

struggle to maintain a polished surface that’s vital for the interior construction

of the work and the finish. The studio looks like a dungeon since most of the

tooling is wet and I use diamond tools and grit (basically the texture of beach

sand). It’s a constant struggle to not cross contaminate. The process is slow

enough without making a mistake like mixing up a polishing compound with

grit. I bond the glass in a clean room that must be dust free. Again, I have to

be constantly aware of contamination since no one wants my eyelashes in

their artwork.

RASgalleries: You draw inspiration from both your heart and science, using the

theory of Fibonacci in each lead crystal sculpture. Fibonacci, as a great

mathematician, articulated that math is natural in nature. Fibonacci numbers are

38 Follow us on Twitter @WineCountryTW


found in the patterns of growth in every living thing. Can you explain how this is interpreted in your

work?

Jack Storms: Utilizing the Fibonacci theory, my work has the ability to be visually spectacular

at one angle and then show the simplicity of form, pattern and structure at another. The

principle is also responsible for being a bridge from a very technical medium to a more

natural reception, giving the sense that the work is created and not manufactured.

RASgalleries: Talk about the beverage-themed sculptures that you will feature for Bella Vino, the

RASGalleries show in July. What excites you about this new series? How are these forms different for

you?

Jack Storms: The wine-themed work is what I call my Bella work. These works are very dear to

me because they come from a concept that I was told multiple times would never work. I

was convinced I could shape glass on a lathe so I designed then created a lathe that would

prove the doubters wrong. The first works from this lathe were wine-themed. It seemed very

natural to me. There are so many exciting forms that I can explore with the lathe and the

shapes and colors in the finished pieces that will be at the

show – bottles, wine glasses, Champagne flutes –

emphasize the energy between the love of wine and art.

Each of the ten new pieces refracts light, reflects and casts

colored shadow.

RASgalleries: There are two new rainbows in your life: your wife,

Vivian, and your son, Owen. Give our readers a slice of your life

outside the studio. What do you love to do with your family?

Jack Storms: Before I met my wife and created our family,

I thought my true love was my work. I used to live to

sculpt not sculpt to live. I was made to be a dad and

husband and I’m lucky enough to support them doing

something I thoroughly enjoy. That realization has made

me a better sculptor. I take my love for them and their

love for me and channel it into the work. That energy

makes the creative process flow from me without

resistance. When the day is done, I race home to wrestle

with my two-year-old and coach him on the ABCs, and

be a husband to my wife. It recharges me for the next day

of sculpting in the studio.

RASgalleries: What would you like people to take away,

emotionally, from this show?

Jack Storms: I hope that they find my work brings a sense of

fascination and wonder that is enduring for them through

the years.

Jack Storms is a driving force in the world of cold glass

sculpture. Collected internationally, his work has also

been commissioned for award ceremonies, as

commemorative pieces, and even as a gift honoring the

President of Nigeria. At RASgalleries, we are pleased to

represent this accomplished artist year-round. We invite

you to Jack Storms: Master of Cold Glass introducing

Bella Vino, a highly anticipated show of sculpture by Jack

Storms, opening on July 13 with new works continuing to

arrive through August 31, 2012. Attend the artist

reception July 13 from 6 to 8 p.m and July 14 from 2 to

4 p.m. at RASgalleries in Yountville.

Golden Haven Hot Springs

BY KARIN ARGOUD

Want to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and

not spend a fortune? Calm your mind, sooth your soul and beautify

your body at Golden Haven Hot Springs and Spa. This charming

Calistoga Spa is nestled in the heart of the legendary Napa Valley

Wine Country and has everything you need for the perfect getaway at

the perfect price. Melt your troubles away with the magical Calistoga

hot springs water and rejuvenating spa treatments at Golden Haven.

People have been coming to Calistoga for over a hundred years to

enjoy the hot springs mineral waters. Why? The Calistoga mineral

waters contain more than 35 minerals and have been touted to have

great health benefits. Besides, it’s fun and if you love wine, Golden

Haven offers guests a winery guide with great deals on tours and

tastings.

Or maybe you want to just take a deep breath and unwind. You

deserve to feel this good, balanced, rested and connected with

yourself. So go ahead, spoil yourself with a soothing massage, or

luxurious herbal facial, or detoxifying European Body Wraps and

relax in a mud bath. Staff members will guide you throughout the

entire process of a traditional mud bath that this Calistoga spa is

known for. Golden Haven’s private treatment rooms for mud baths

were chosen as the favorite mud bath experience of all the Napa

Valley spas.

“What people really love about this place is that we are oriented

towards couples and we are one of the only spas in town that does

the traditional mud bath for couples,” said General Manager, Barry

Stern. Stern explains that a traditional mud bath is a thick

combination of clay, peat moss and hot springs mineral water. “What

we have here is really thick mud,” adds Stern. “Some Calistoga spas

just add water to clay, so it’s more like a liquid. At Golden Haven, you

will enjoy the traditional mud bath that is world famous.” Stern says

that the peat moss gives thickness and buoyancy to the mud “So you

are floating, which makes it

relaxing, it sooths your muscles

and takes out toxins.” Stern says

it’s fun too, because you can take

a mud bath together in a private

room for two. The mud bath is

flushed after every use with hot

mineral water at temperatures

between 102 and 104 degrees.

Between treatments, you can

soak in sun and enjoy the

outdoor pool and Jacuzzi heated

naturally with water from the

Calistoga hot springs, which

emerges from the ground at 140-

degrees. The minerals in the

water are excellent for softening

your skin. The pool is housed in

42

an inviting cabana that also includes a shower and changing room.

There is a sun deck, floral gardens and picnic area.44_ too.

“We offer the best deals in Calistoga,” said Stern. He wants guests

to know that Golden Haven Hot Springs “offers a really great

experience with wonderful services. We are welcoming,

unpretentious, comfortable and affordable!”

All the rooms have been remodeled in last five years and include a

private bath or shower, color cable TV, air conditioning, a refrigerator,

and complimentary coffee, tea and bottled water. There are three

types of rooms: standard rooms, superior rooms and the most

popular Jacuzzi rooms. Those rooms feature a full size whirlpool spa,

king bed, vaulted ceilings and dressing area.

Make sure, before booking a room, to go to the website and check

out their current specials. It’s usually more affordable to come on a

weekday, but right now they are offering Sizzling Summer Specials.

For only $319 you can stay in a superior room and get mud baths

and massages for two. Check website for specific dates at

www.goldenhaven.com.

Golden Haven Hot Springs is open Monday through Sunday from

8 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. for spa treatments. The pool is open year-round

from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. and is located at 1713 Lake Street, Calistoga,

CA 94515. For reservations, call (707) 942-8000.

WILSON WINERY

1960 Dry Creek Road, just north of the wine-infused Mecca of Healdsburg

Open daily from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Tell them the Wine Wench sent you!

BY SUE STRAIGHT, THE WINE WENCH

Great wines, friendly staff, unpretentious atmosphere and stunning views of

the Dry Creek Valley – Wilson Winery is all this and much more.

When Ken and Diane Wilson started restoring the old corrugated tin barn

(once known as the Chris Fredson Winery) in 1993, they had no idea of the

adventure they were embarking on. When they started the project, there were

still old redwood tanks and vats in the cellar. Now, almost 20 years later, they

have produced dozens of award-winning wines, garnered lots of critical acclaim

and most importantly, made lots of friends and fans. Wilson Winery is the first

winery in their growing family of Wilson Artisan Wineries, which includes

Mazzocco, Soda Rock, Matrix, Jaxon Keys, deLorimier and most recently, Pezzi

King.

Owner/Winemaker Diane Wilson crafts big juicy, jammy, tail-waggin’ good

Zinfandels (and Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Syrah and Petite Sirah,

too) that are way too easy to drink! If you are already a Zinfandel fan, you must

go there and taste a few. If you are not a Zinfandel fan, you must go there and

taste a few – those wines just might make a believer out of you! I’m not the

only fan – Wilson Winery’s wines recently won 25 medals (including three

double gold medals and six gold medals) at the San Francisco Chronicle Wine

Competition!

The winery is surrounded by lush, green lawn, which is partially shaded by

tall oak trees. There have been occasional sightings of pink plastic patio

flamingos on the lawn (the Wilson family definitely has a sense of humor), but

there is nothing kitschy about this place, folks! A handful of wrought iron

picnic tables are artfully placed about the shaded patio, inviting visitors to stay

a while and enjoy the gorgeous, sweeping views of the surrounding Dry Creek

Valley.

The tasting room is comfortable and well laid out, with the main bar

spanning the back of the room and another bar off to the side for VIP tastings

and large groups. Large windows let in lots of light and watercolors by a local

artist dot the walls, creating a bright, airy atmosphere. The overall vibe in the

tasting room is casual and welcoming.

A tasteful selection of non-wine gift items is artfully laid out for the

discerning shopper, including some dog-related gifts (Wilson Winery is dog

friendly). A refrigerator is stocked with cheeses, cold cuts, bottled water and

chilled wines, making it easy for visitors to create an impromptu picnic.

Wilson Winery has the well-earned reputation for being a fun place to visit.

The tasting room staff is friendly and knowledgeable, and they genuinely enjoy

chatting with visitors. They also feature live music performed by local bands on

a regular basis (my band has played there several times and I can tell you firsthand

that these events are really fun!).

I tasted a few wines during my visit. The following were my favorites:

2009 Molly’s Zinfandel ($34) – This is Zinfandel with a capital “Z!”

Mouthwatering aromas of blackberry, plum, black pepper and brambles lead

into a juicy mouthful of consistent flavors, which linger through the finish.

Yum!

2009 Wilson Family Red ($34) – This is a big-bodied, delicious, red blend,

loaded with aromas and flavors of plum, blueberry, blackberry and peppery

spice.

Wilson Winery is a must-stop on your next visit to Sonoma County!

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

Grape to Glass Pre-Harvest Party on Saturday, August 18. Taking

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

latest releases before they are made available to the public.

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.

TOM MEADOWCROFT

“My passion for wines comes from my experiences growing up, working

and traveling in Europe and the United States,” says Tom Meadowcroft,

winemaker and owner of Sonoma’s Meadowcroft Wines. “I started my journey

in winemaking by working the harvest of 1979 in Bordeaux, France.”

His passion for wine continued as he worked at wineries in both

Washington and the Napa Valley. He took numerous extension courses from

U.C. Davis and graduated from Napa College with an Associate of Science

degree in Winery Technology and Viticulture. He became a vineyard manager

focused on sustainable farming and environmental advocacy.

“Managing dozens of vineyards for many of the top wineries in Napa and

Sonoma taught me the principles of winegrowing and gave me a vision for the

kinds of wines that I make today,” says Meadowcroft. Over the years he has

gotten a well-earned reputation for the quality of the wine he creates and a

passion for the environment, two things he considers inseparable today, and

for an ongoing stewardship for the land that nurtures the grapes.

“The way I look at it, what I do is not just about the landscape and the

wine; it is just as much about sustainability.” He adds, “The fruit that comes

from our own vineyards as well as those from which we source, all use

sustainable practices.”

The standard bearer of the Meadowcroft label is the Mt. Veeder Estate

Grown Cabernet Sauvignon. An award-winning wine since its first vintage in

2005 which received 94 points in Wine Enthusiast, the current 2008 release

stands shoulder to shoulder with its predecessors and just recently garnered a

91 rating from the magazine. The Meadowcroft label also produces

Chardonnay, Zinfandel, Sangiovese, Viognier and Pinot Noir.

In addition to the flagship Meadowcroft label, Tom has also created Thomas

Henry Wines named for his father, Thomas Henry Meadowcroft, and crafted

for daily enjoyment and for sharing with friends and family. “My dad always

looked for great wines at a good price,” says Meadowcroft, “We lived and

traveled throughout Europe together by car, foot and on bicycle, sharing the

lessons of life, family and friends and that philosophy remains with every

bottle of Thomas Henry we produce.”

The Thomas Henry label features Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Merlot, Meritage,

Sauvignon Blanc, Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon.

In addition to the Meadowcroft and Thomas Henry brands, Tom also

makes the wines for the Foyt Family. With each varietal, a memory in motor

sports from the Foyt family’s rich history, which extends over some five

decades, is shared. But the name Foyt is more than just a celebrity name on a

bottle.

Foyt Family Wines was created by Larry Foyt and A.J. Foyt IV, the son and

grandson, respectively, of world renown racing legend A. J. Foyt. Their

venture began with their passion for fine wine, and as a way of creating a

tribute to A.J. as well. The Foyt Family label presently includes a Chardonnay,

a Meritage and a Cabernet with additional vintages planned for the future.

“Our style of winemaking for all of our labels is all about balance,” says

Meadowcroft. “Not too much oak, because I never want to mask the varietal

characteristics that are so essential.”

To see for yourself, take a trip to the tasting room located at Cornerstone

Sonoma, only five miles south of the town of Sonoma, 40 miles north of the

Golden Gate Bridge and just across the street from Gloria Ferrer.

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 of local food. 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 for $35 ($15 food only).

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.

Lake County Wine Adventure Weekend

The eighth-annual Lake County Wine Adventure, a two-day

passport event, will be held July 28 and 29, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The Lake County Wine Adventure is hosted by the Lake County

Winery Association.

Adventurous wine enthusiasts will have an opportunity to

discover the “high elevation” wine region of California’s Lake

County and sample many award-winning wines.

Throughout the weekend, wine adventurers will taste wines

from five of Lake County’s distinct viticulture areas (AVAs) as they

visit participating wineries.

Adventure tickets can be purchased in advance online or at

select participating wineries for $35 each or on the day of the

event for $45 each. Each ticket is good for two days of activities

including tours, music and art exhibits and entitles the holder to

wine tastings and hors d’oeuvres at each winery, a logo wine glass

and a four bottle wine bag. Event-goers will be entered into a raffle

drawing when they leave their completed wine adventure tickets

with the last winery they visit. Raffle prizes include a dozen choice

Lake County vacation and entertainment packages and a special

grand prize featuring a stellar collection of Lake County wines.

Event organizers promote responsible hospitality and

encourage all participants to designate a driver. Designated drivers

are invited to participate free of charge at each site, compliments

The Tenth Annual Petite Sirah Symposium

Sponsored by Concannon Vineyard, Livermore, July 31, 8:30 a.m.

The best and brightest Petite Sirah talent in California is again

gathering to discuss Petite Sirah grape growing, winemaking and

marketing issues as they continue to share their enthusiasm for this

stealth variety of consequence.

Since PS I Love You began after the first Petite Sirah Symposium,

interest for Petite Sirah has grown substantially. In the past ten years,

the number of Petite Sirah producers and growers has grown from 62

in 2002 to more than 1,000 in 2012. Anyone who has attended the

symposium understands the correlation between what was the case

ten years ago, to what is the story today.

Petite Sirah is truly an artisan winemakers “pet” project, with most

of these wines being sold directly through tasting room sales and

wine clubs. Most wine critics are not seeing these wines for critical

review. However, the media tasting that follows the morning session

of the symposium will provide a rare view of what many of these

wineries are doing.

The event promises to be one of exploration,

This year, Concannon is reflecting on having grown

this heritage variety for 100 years

Jim Concannon had the foresight to varietally label Petite Sirah in

1964, with a 1961 vintage, marking last year as Petite Sirah’s Golden

Anniversary.

“Concannon is the best location for the Petite Sirah Symposium,”

states Jo Diaz, founding executive director of PS I Love You, Inc.

“Petite Sirah is Concannon’s flagship wine; couple that with the fact

that Concannon’s commitment to sponsoring the Petite Sirah

Symposium has kept it in the forefront of interest by U.S. wine

reviewers for all of these years.

Nes: Big Change of venue for this year, only

Due to office renovations at Concannon Vineyard, the Symposium

Sessions will be held at the Martinelli Event Center (Sessions, only)

3585 Greenville, Road, Livermore. The Annual Luncheon and Media

Tasting will return to Concannon for the afternoon at 4596 Tesla

Road, Livermore.

Lone Oak Lodge – Clean, Affordable, Convenient

BY LAURA NESS

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

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

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

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

units, with pleasant bathrooms, clean, comfortable and

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

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

goodness!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

restaurants in proximity, including a serviceable Chinese for takeout,

and drug store, bottle shop and breakfast spot within walking

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

can’t beat Lone Oak

for value,

convenience, comfort

and quiet. A good

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

17 Mile Drive, playing a round on a championship golf course, gazing

at the wonders of the deep at the Monterey Bay Aquarium, playing

tourist on Cannery Row and Fisherman’s Wharf and winetasting and

people watching on the storied streets of Carmel.

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

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

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

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

Monterey area.
