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 is terroir

The French term, “terroir” (pronounced tear-wah), is the term for

the conditions that make a specific grape-growing site, and its wine,

distinctive. It comes from a philosophy, originated in Europe, that a

multitude of influences in nature surrounding a vineyard, or wine

region, create a wine’s character. These natural factors include soil

composition, day and nighttime temperatures, the amount of rainfall,

the direction of the sun, just to name a few.

Terroir explains why some of the best California Pinot Noir, for

example, originate in the regions of Carneros and Russian River. They

may be separated by about 30 miles but they share similar soils and

experience the same cooling effects from bodies of water nearby –

either the ocean, in the case of the Russian River area, or San Pablo

Bay for the Carneros region. Both regions produce rich and complex

wines made from Pinot Noir grapes that reflect their similar terroir.

Over centuries of winemaking around the world, it has been

learned that the uniqueness of a specific location is what creates the

“personality” of a wine. Although the French word “terrior” has no

English translation, it has become a term used everywhere to describe

this interaction of the many factors that influence a grape-growing

site.

So, the next time you taste a great wine, whether Pinot Noir,

Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon or Zinfandel, take notice of where

the grapes were grown. If a distinct site is listed on the label as the

origin of the grapes, such as the name of a specific vineyard or an

official wine geographic region (also known as an appellation) know

that you are tasting more than just the grapes that made the wine.

You are experiencing “terrior” – everything in nature that makes that

site or region, unique.

BY JOSH STEIN

Barreling down for the winter

Winery operations are year-round, but the intensity of harvest,

which is so dependant upon time and speed, gives way to a much

more gentle process as our winter rains begin, cellars get more

chilly and damp, and wines begin to finish their primary and

secondary fermentations and are “racked” into barrel.

Alternatively, wines fermented in tanks which are meant to finish

those processes in the barrel are transferred off the “gross lees,”

the solid by-products of making wine, which include dead yeast

cells and various nutrients, so as to allow the oak’s influence to

be in the mix earlier in the production process before the wine is

even completely made. Regardless of which route toward oak

reds and some whites take, the reasons for “barreling down”

involve a slowdown into “cellar time.”

One of the things I’ve tried to emphasize in the past is the

idea that wine is a production process, not alchemy, and so the

choice of using barrels is just that, a choice, and one with many

subtle logistical options available to the winemaker. Before

going into them, let’s review what going into barrel does for a

wine. While almost all reds spend some time in contact with

oak, only some whites do. Oak imparts an underlying

creaminess, and time in contact with it encourages malolactic

fermentation to begin and to complete since Oenococcus oeni,

the organism which acutally does the acid shift, is resident in

oak; this serves to soften the wine since lactic acid is half as

strong as malic (think milk versus apple juice) and provides

perhaps another of the reasons barrels of oak were chosen for

storage in antiquity. Lastly, tannin formation and interchange

takes place between the barrels and the wine, and time in barrel

in combination with the micro-oxygenation as the wood

breathes serve to help create a chemically stable, silkier finished

wine.

With that as context, whether oak has been used as a primary

fermentation vessel or not, when ready to age in contact with

wood, the wine is transfered either from tank to barrel or from

barrel to barrel. Gravity-fed wineries do these processes through

the manipulation of space to allow the wine to literally drain

downwards without mechanical aids; most other wineries use

pumps of various designs to move wine horizontally or vertically

around their production spaces into barrels. Some wineries go

the opposite direction, concatenating their wines into larger lots

held in large oak or redwood vats or steel tanks, with or without

oak stave inserts.

And let’s not forget about costs. A new imported barrel is

north of $1,000, and that barrel will be used at most four times

for any discernible “oakiness” it would impart. Think of a stormbattered

piece of wood, only what’s left in the barrel after wine

has been in it for a year or two resembles more a dark, yucky

wine aquarium than driftwood. Once exhausted, a barrel can be

shaved and re-coopered for an additional cost, but it’s just that,

an additional cost which is dependent on the cooper’s skills to be

done properly or else the wines stored in the “rejuvenated” barrel

will take on port-like overtones. This is why some wineries

choose instead to use older, “neutal” barrels or small steel tanks

with various kinds of oak adjuncts like sticks, beads or cubes

inserted, or they will use larger staves with notches, hanging on a

lip around the edge of a large steel tank.

As you can see, what is mechanically a simple process –

separating liquid from most of the solids from fermentation –

becomes a much more complicated cultural and thus financial

process. How much of a difference this makes in consumer

awareness and apprecation is, of course, subject to debate. What

is undeniable, however, is the impact of oak on finished wine –

and its impact to the bottom line for the winemaker. Consider

that when next looking at a barrel chai: it’s not just a room of

wood and liquid – it’s the recorder of winegrowing decisions.

Enjoy!

ON THE COVER | WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK

BENNETT LANE WINERY

Venture Off the Beaten Path for a Taste of Calistoga Cabernet

Cabernet Lovers will race to Bennett Lane for a Sneak Peek of the 2010 Vintage February 2nd

BENNETT LANE WINERY

Open daily from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

3340 Highway 128, approximately two miles north of Calistoga

www.bennettlane.com | (707) 942-6684 | 1-877-MAX-NAPA

The first weekend in February is all about Cabernet in the valley as wineries up and down

Highway 29 and the Silverado Trail release their luscious Napa Cabernet Sauvignons. One of

our favorite stops every year is Bennett Lane Winery in Calistoga, known for its succulent

Cabernets, their signature “feasting wine,” Maximus, and for one of the finest visitor

experiences in the valley. Founded by Randy and Lisa Lynch in 2003, Bennett Lane’s off-thebeaten

track location and friendly tasting room offers visitors to Napa a “secret gem” and a

great way to learn about – and try – some of Napa’s best wines in a more intimate setting. On

Saturday, February 2nd, Bennett Lane’s 2010 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon ($55), 2010

Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon ($95) and 2010 Lynch Family Vineyard Calistoga Cabernet

Sauvignon ($125) will be released and poured for visitors at the tasting room – a special

opportunity to get a sneak peek and taste the wines before they are released to the public

later this year. The cost for the release event is $30 per person and includes a flight of new

releases and select award-winning library releases.

Bennett Lane’s Cabs have continuously garnered critical acclaim. In the short period that

the winery has been opened they have received an incredible 33 scores of 90+ points

between Wine Spectator, Wine Enthusiast and Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate. Just last year,

the 2008 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve scored 92 Points from Robert Parker’s

Wine Advocate, 91 Points from Wine Spectator and 93 Points from Wine Enthusiast. Year

after year the popular blend of Cabernet, Merlot and Syrah has received 90 points or above

from the critics. The “red feasting wine,” as Maximus is affectionately referred to on the label,

demonstrates owners Randy and Lisa Lynch’s commitment to making wine an integral part of

entertaining with family and friends.

Bennett Lane’s wines are crafted to be approachable, yet complex – or what owner Randy

Lynch calls, “the best of both worlds,” meaning you can drink them today, but they are

structured enough to cellar for several years. “My goal is for us to make consistent wines –

both in quality and taste – from year to year, so that consumers can trust Bennett Lane

wines,” he says.

Only nine years old, Bennett Lane has quickly become one of the top vintners in the valley

and has upgraded their tasting

room to match the amazing

accolades that the wines have

received in their first few

years. It is fast becoming the

must-see destination for wine

lovers visiting California’s newest

AVA. In addition to the elegantly

appointed tasting bar, they are

premiering their custom ipad

application for their guests to

use for an interactive tasting

experience. Guests can not only

read the latest reviews and

tasting notes – but find

interesting food pairing recipes,

share their favorite new wines on

Facebook and email their

personal wine notes home, all

while tasting a glass of Napa’s

finest. Owner Randy Lynch

notes, “As a small winery we

strive to not only make the best

hand crafted wines available, but

also one of the most educational

and enjoyable tasting

experiences around for guests

coming to visit one of the

premier wine growing regions in

the world.”

The tasting flight at Bennett

Lane on a non-release event day

is $15 and includes four of

Bennett Lane’s wines, the

Cabernet, Reserve Chardonnay,

Maximus and Merlot. We

encourage you to put Bennett

Lane on your short-list of mustvisit

tasting rooms as the

production is small and the

Cabernets sell out quickly.

Visiting Bennett Lane affords

tasters another rarity with a

small winery – a likely run-in

(and perhaps a last minute barrel

tasting if you’re lucky!) with

owners Randy and Lisa Lynch.

Bennett Lane Winery is

located in an understated

Mediterranean-style building at

the beautiful northern end of the

Napa Valley, in Calistoga, and is

considered well worth the drive.

JUdd’s HiLL – Expect the Unexpected

BY MIKE HYLAND

I would guess that all of the wine club members as well as the many visitors to the winery

on the Silverado Trail in Napa know one thing for sure about Judd’s Hill – always expect the

unexpected. For example, the Judd’s Hill Valentine’s Day celebration will not take place on

February 14 as you would expect. They decided to make that date even more special by

celebrating ten days later on February 24, and calling it their Post Valentine’s Day Celebration

and Pick-Up Party. Crazy Maybe, but for winemaker Judd Finkelstein (hence the name) and

his wife Holly, that’s the way they like to do things, and apparently, so do all of their guests.

The event runs from noon to 2:30 p.m. with “great food, some form of live entertainment,

lots of surprises and, of course, massage therapists who will offer neck and shoulder

massages.” Now, what other winery offers that The event is free for wine club members and

$25 per person for non club members and takes place on the crush pad next to the vineyard.

Reservations are recommended by calling the tasting room at (707) 255-2332, and do you

really think it is an accident that the phone number and the physical address are somewhat

alike The winery is located at 2332 Silverado Trail in Napa. They are open by appointment

only every day from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Owner Judd Finkelstein was raised in Napa Valley. His college credits include the Walter

Cronkite School of Journalism and Telecommunications at Arizona State where he earned a

bachelor’s degree in television production. If you’ve been to the Judd’s Hill website (and if not,

you should) then you have already seen some of Judd’s “Wine Booty” shows starring Judd and

The Pirate. While it seems a little zany, the shows are also interesting and informative. So,

whether it be pirates or magic or Hawaiian luau’s, or even playing in his Napa Valley ukulele

club with The Wine Country Flea Jumpers, Judd is right at home having a good time.

In addition to having a lot of fun, Judd is very serious about his winemaking. He grew up

in the wine industry and learned the art of winemaking from his dad, Art. “Our idea is that

great fruit makes fine wine and we want that fact to show through,” says Judd. “We use oak

subtly, keep the alcohols at moderate levels and blend carefully, among other techniques. We

let the grape shine, which results in wonderful wines of true varietal characteristics.”

And, with names like Magic, Presitdigitation and Burke’s Blazing Barbecue Old Vine

Zinfandel, among others, you know that Judd’s Hill is a fun place to sample wine. Give them a

call to schedule a tasting appointment or to RSVP for one of their events and experience the

magic of this boutique, family-run Napa Valley winery for yourself.

VIANSA WINERY

AND MARKETPLACE

The Perfect Place to Start a New Lease on Life!

BY MONICA L. DASHWOOD

At Viansa Winery and Marketplace, it’s about beginnings. Beginning

your weekend getaway; beginning your wine tasting experience;

beginning your trip to Italy; beginning your life as a couple.

Whether you’re coming to the wine country for the very first time or

you are a frequent visitor, Viansa Winery and Marketplace, located at

the entrance to Sonoma Valley, sitting high upon a hilltop, providing

breathtaking views of Sonoma Valley, vineyards and wetlands, is a must!

For those who hold a special love for all things Italian, Viansa Winery

and Marketplace beckons you with its beauty. From its Italian

architecture, fantastic views, property lined with cypress, olive and fruit

trees, Italian statues, water fountains, rose gardens and staff, you will be

transported to Italy where all your troubles will disappear and you will

enjoy life and be treated like family.

The best part of visiting Viansa Winery and Marketplace is tasting its

amazing award-winning wines. During 2012, Viansa wines won 46

medals. One of my favorite ways to enjoy Viansa is getting a bottle of

wine, some delicious food from its deli and sitting outside and enjoying

the fantastic view of Sonoma Valley and Viansa’s 113-acre seasonal

wetland. There is no better way to spend an afternoon!

Viansa produces 24 fantastic wines, half of which are Italian varietals.

Three wines that I would like to highlight are its 2010 Estate Primitivo,

2010 Reserve Sangiovese and 2011 Estate Chardonnay. The 2010 Estate

Primitivo and 2010 Reserve Sangiovese have not been produced since

2006 making these new fruity flavored vintages a special treat for wine

lovers. For those who prefer a rich white wine, the 2011 Estate

Chardonnay is a must try, exuding aromas and flavors of baked apple,

crisp citrus, butterscotch and toasty oak. These three wines originate

from Viansa’s hillside vineyard and range in price from $30-$45 a bottle

but wine club members receive a 25% discount.

As far as new beginnings go, I cannot think of a better place to start

your life as a married couple! This is the picture perfect venue to plan

your dream wedding and start your new life as bride and groom.

Viansa Winery and Marketplace celebrates more weddings than any

other winery in Sonoma County. This is due to the exquisite beauty of

the property and Viansa’s team of wedding coordinators that work

closely with you to customize your wedding wishes, and crafting a

fairytale wedding like no other. Viansa Winery received the 2012

Wedding Wire’s Bride’s Choice Award, making it the fourth consecutive

year they have received this award. The testimonials speak for

themselves. “Viansa is hands down the number one choice for a wine

country wedding. It’s the perfect mix of venue and winery which cannot

be found elsewhere. The view, food and staff are outstanding.”

Viansa Winery and Marketplace also hosts a number of events for its

guests. One noteworthy event is its annual Valentine’s Day Wine and

Chocolate Pairing. This event will be held on Saturday, February 16th

with seating at 11 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. For wine club members the

cost is $50, per couple and for winery guests, the cost is $65, per

couple. This event is your opportunity to skip the crowded datenight

hot spots and opt for a luscious taste of Sonoma decadence

instead.

As you begin the New Year, Lloyd Davis, owner of Viansa Winery

and Marketplace promises you a one of a kind experience in the wine

country. Whether you are enjoying some of its delicious foods and

wines, or getting a grand taste of Italy, or starting a new life as bride

and groom, you will be treated like family and you will want to come

back again and again.

Winegrowers, winemakers and wine enthusiasts combine to form

the membership. The common focus is the preservation and

recognition of Zinfandel as America’s heritage wine. ZAP’s embership

includes approximately 250 winery-members, 4,000 advocate

members and 100 associate members.

Zinfandel is considered America’s heritage wine because of its rich

history; plantings of Zinfandel in California represent some of the

oldest vineyard plantings in the world – adding further to Zinfandel’s

critically important role in the world of fine wine. While the

Zinfandel grape originated in Europe, the Zinfandel name is truly

American – the earliest documented use of the name was when a

Boston nursery owner advertised Zinfandel for sale in 1832.

Zinfandel was introduced to California during the Gold Rush at some

point between 1852 and 1857 and became widely planted because it

thrived so well in the state’s climate and soil. Today, Zinfandel is the

third leading wine grape variety in California, with nearly 50,000

acres planted.

Zinfandel Advocates & Producers welcomes “Advocate” members

as well as wineries. ZAP members have unique opportunities to

explore Zinfandel, meet other Zinfandel enthusiasts and discover new

wineries. An annual membership is $44 (for two people) and

includes numerous special and behind-the-scenes events and

resources. Members have early entrance to the Grand Zinfandel

Tasting at ZAP’s Zinfandel Festival, plus winemaker workshops, as

well as ticket savings for the Festival and other events, including

cruises, invitations with special pricing to wine events, a seasonal

eNewsletter with news articles, member stories, recipes, discounts

and special offers at selected wineries and more.

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

ReFLeCtiNg tHe good LiFe

Artist Thomas Arvid comes to Napa Valley

BY SARAH DOYLE

There was something about the color

red that appealed to Atlanta-based artist

Thomas Arvid when he decided to choose a

focus for his artwork. While his first oil

paintings materialized images of Coca-

Cola ® cans, Converse ® tennis shoes, and

Radio Flyer ® wagons, it was Arvid’s still life

of a red wine bottle that caught the public’s

eye. The wine painting was purchased

before it was done drying on the easel. So

did the next one. And the one after that. It

was then that Arvid knew he was on to

something.

Wine is great subject because people

are familiar with it. They really connect to

it,” says the self-taught Arvid who was

recently named one of the top “25 Artists

You Should Know” by U.S. Art magazine.

“My paintings speak to the special

moments that people share when they

share wine.”

Today, Arvid’s work focuses primarily on

still lifes of wine bottles, wine glasses, corks

and corkscrews, all of which are created

with startling precision. Even the smallest

detail gets significant attention, from the

delicately beaded bubbles lining each glass

of wine, to the minuscule pits in every

cork. More than 50 art galleries represent

his larger-than-life paintings in the United

States, Canada and Japan, including

Thomas Arvid Fine Art Gallery in Marietta,

Ga., which is considered one of the most

successful boutique art publishing

companies in the country. Currently,

collectors are willing to wait years for one

of his originals.

“It’s amazing that my collectors find a

personal fulfillment in my work,” marvels

Arvid. “Especially when I’m just doing what

I love.” The artist’s first museum exhibition,

“Arvid: Reflecting the Good Life,” appeared

this past November/December 2012 at The

Marietta Cobb Museum of Art in metro-

Atlanta and featured a retrospective of

Arvid’s body of work.

Thomas Arvid

meet the artist

On February 1, 2013, North Bay Gallery

in Yountville will present a wine and cheese

reception with Thomas Arvid from 5 to 7

p.m. Guests will have the opportunity to

mingle with the artist and view a selection of

his latest wine-themed work.

“Thomas is a remarkable artist,” says

North Bay Gallery owner, Marc Eremian. “He

has an incredible gift and I consider him to

be the pre-eminent painter of all things wine.

I’m always amazed by his ability to capture

the most subtle reflections through his

hyper-realistic style and composition.” If you

haven’t been to the North Bay Gallery in V

Marketplace, Arvid’s opening is the perfect

opportunity to visit this multimedia art

house, which exhibits an eclectic array of

bronze sculptures, metal art, paintings,

handcrafted jewelry and art glass created by

North American artists. (A second location

exists in Sonoma’s downtown square.)

On February 2, 2013, from 10 a.m.-3:30

p.m., Thomas Arvid will make his annual

appearance at Silver Oak Cellars in Napa

Valley as part of the winery’s biannual

Release Day event. The artist is a great

admirer of Silver Oak’s wines and has

captured many of the winery’s iconic images

on canvas throughout his painting career.

Guests can observe Arvid paint a work-inprogress

while enjoying Silver Oak’s newly

released 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon. Live

music and artisan small bites prepared by the

area’s best restaurants will also be on hand.

winery; but I may be influenced by their Cab

Franc.

korbel champagne cellars - the toast of the inaugural luncheon

eighth inauguration for America's Premium Champagne

When Barack Obama was sworn in for his second term as the

44th President of the United States, this historic event was once

again toasted with flutes of Korbel California Champagne. On

January 21st, immediately following the public Swearing-In

Ceremony, Korbel Russian River Valley Natural Champagne –

featuring a commemorative neck label including the Inaugural

Seal – was served at the Inaugural Luncheon and raised in

toasts to the Obama administration.

2013 marks the eighth Presidential Inauguration in

which Korbel Champagne Cellars, producer of America’s

favorite premium Champagne, has been selected for this

prestigious honor. This Korbel tradition began in 1985

with the inauguration of Ronald Reagan and has

continued through the inaugurations of George Bush in

1989, Bill Clinton in 1993 and 1997, George W. Bush in

2001 and 2005, and Barack Obama’s first term in 2009.

Since 1897, the Inaugural Luncheon has been one of

the most exclusive events of the Presidential Inauguration.

In addition to the President, Vice President and members

of their families, the 200 invited guests include the senior

members of the Senate and House of Representatives,

ACACiA viNeYARd

BY MIKE HYLAND

If you love great Chardonnay or Pinot Noir and you have not yet made it to Acacia

Vineyard in the Carneros region of Napa, do yourself a favor and stop in sometime

soon. Carneros is known for its Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, and Acacia offers eight

unique Chardonnays and eight distinctive Pinot Noirs, a taste for everyone.

Off the beaten path – but one of the closest Napa wineries to San Francisco – Acacia

is a jewel of the Carneros region. Situated on a hill overlooking San Pablo Bay, with

views of Mount Tamalpais and surrounded by some 150 acres of vineyards, Acacia

looks and feels like paradise, even in the wintertime.

With an intimate tasting room and an extremely knowledgeable staff, there is always

something cooking in Acacia’s little corner of the world. Whether it be a crab or lobster

boil, a Mardi Gras party, a Mother’s Day brunch or just a hike in the vineyards, there are

events going on each month. For big groups, the hospitality staff opens the Tank Room,

a large tasting area complete with fermentation tanks and barrels (hence the name).

Acacia has been making its award-winning, single-vineyard wines since 1979.

Utilizing the winery’s estate grapes, winemaker Matthew Glynn also sources fruit from

such well-known Carneros and Russian River vineyards as Sangiacomo and Lone Tree.

Acacia has the distinction of being one of the first California wineries to offer vineyarddesignate

Pinot Noir. While Acacia makes a multitude of Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs,

they are all limited productions – usually about 200 to 300 cases per varietal – and the

only way you can get them is through the tasting room or by joining the wine club. In

addition to the Chards and Pinots, Acacia produces a delicious Viognier and a

refreshing rosé of Pinot Noir, perfect for summertime sipping.

Long before the climate of the Carneros AVA was recognized as ideal for growing

Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, Acacia’s pioneering founders were convinced of it. Their

goal in launching Acacia was to achieve a certain balance in Pinot Noir that, at the time,

existed only in French wines. They wanted to craft a single-vineyard California Pinot

Noir that was both complex and delicate – a wine that heightened the enjoyment of

food, making everything just a little tastier.

Today, that quality is what draws both aficionados and novices alike to Acacia wines.

It also helped to put Carneros on the map, and it continues to inspire winemaking at

Acacia after almost 35 year.

Welcome to

y o u n t v i l l e

at Jessup cellars, it’s all about the experience

In a verdant valley full of wineries,

vineyards and tasting rooms, the Jessup

Cellars tasting room is something different.

The wines are excellent, the people are

friendly (while also being efficient and

knowledgeable about their wines, art and

hospitality in general). But there are some

things you will find when you visit that set

Jessup apart from the rest.

As any staff member will proudly

proclaim if asked, Jessup is “all about the

experience.” Walk-in visitors are welcomed

at the tasting bar, but for those seeking a

more intimate occasion, the by-appointment

semi-private tastings are the way to best

enjoy the tasting room and staff. Taking place

within Jessup’s art gallery, visitors get to

enjoy a range of wines available only from

the winery in a relaxed, no attitude

environment. In fact, if you ask the right

people around the Valley, you’ll hear the

same response: it’s the staff at Jessup, their

willingness to answer any question, their joy

at getting to share what they love about the

wines, which really makes the distinction.

It is fair to say – perhaps even an

understatement – to consider a visit to this

charming tasting room with its fine wines,

gracious wine country hospitality, collection

of art, handsome décor and casual feel is a

true treat for all of the senses. To be able to

sit, sample their exceptional wines along

with a bit of food in such a setting, where

you learn in such a way that it feels as if you

are simply absorbing knowledge instead of

just being taught, is wonderful way to spend

an hour or so here in a small town that is a

beacon to wine lovers and gourmets from

A Romantic Rendezvous for Your Sweetheart and You

A first encounter with the Candlelight Inn is a bit like “love at first sight”! As you approach the

beautifully maintained and landscaped Tudor Mansion – built as a residence in 1929 – it appears to

straddle Easum Drive, a modest residential area. The street – not far from Napa’s Town Center –

ends as you park in the welcoming front courtyard. Right here, in the bustling epicenter of everything

that makes the wine country so desirable, the luxurious ten-room inn sits on its own private,

one-acre, secluded park. It is bordered by Napa Creek and nestled beneath towering redwoods.

Here, a spacious pool/cabana is surrounded by meticulously landscaped flowering shrubs, bushes

and rock gardens. Noticeable sounds are birds and rustling leaves.

Originally designed for an active family’s enjoyment, Candlelight Inn is now a private retreat for

discriminating visitors to the wine country. Many guests, who were smitten by that first impression,

now return year after year to relax and renew their enjoyment of all the region offers. On each visit,

there is more to do. In recent years, Napa has become a hub for worldrenowned

chefs, and each year brings more restaurant openings. At the

inn, guests can enjoy complimentary wine and hors d’oeuvres as well as

snacks and drinks at all hours. A three-course breakfast featuring local

and seasonal foods is served each morning. Most rooms have a deck or

balcony, a two-person marble Jacuzzi tub and a fireplace. All have air

conditioning, TV, telephone and wireless internet access. Each is unique

and tastefully designed. An on-site concierge provides personalized

dining and wine country touring recommendations. The concierge also

helps guide you to the numerous attractions of wine country – hiking

and bicycling, kayaking, bird watching, cultural attractions, balloon

rides and spa services. The inn has received numerous awards and been

featured in USA Weekend and National Geographic Traveler.

The Candlelight Inn is located at 1045 Easum Drive, Napa.

For reservations and to hear more about our packages, call

Lost CANYoN WiNeRY /

stAtioN 1870 WiNe BAR

BY MICHELLE J. BAKER

What award-winning winery’s tasting room by day turns into

downtown Santa Rosa’s most hip and happening wine bar by

night

By day the tasting room is Lost Canyon Winery, a wellestablished

label that debuted in 2001 and was purchased by

Fritz Winery in Dry Creek Valley in 2007. Lost Canyon is best

known for its single-vineyard Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and

Syrah sourced from five prime Russian River Valley vineyards.

Then at night (or about 4pm), the Lost Canyon tasting room

becomes Station 1870 wine bar, which has quickly become one

of downtown Santa Rosa’s hottest late-night destinations. The

wine bar features live music on weekends and the best of both

North Coast and (surprise!) Italian wines imported exclusively

by Fritz Winery’s proprietor Clay Fritz.

In addition to the Lost Canyon wines, the tasting room and

wine bar both offer wines from its sister labels Fritz, which

primarily focuses on Dry Creek Valley estate and reserve wines;

Jenner, with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from the Sonoma

Coast; and Vino Valpredo, featuring a bit of this and a bit of

that, including Sonoma County Merlot and a tasty white blend.

And then there are the Italian wines. Local wine lovers are

clicking their heels with joy to find a place in Sonoma County

to try a slate of Italian wines from Prosecco to Chianti Classico

and Brunello di Montalcino, with more showing up regularly.

The Italian wines are carefully chosen and make a perfect Old

World complement to the California wines.

Whenever you go, take a seat in the warm, cozy couches, at

the modern bar or at the romantic, softly-lit tables in the back,

relax and let this doting and knowledgeable staff do its thing.

Taste a flight of wines, enjoy a glass or bottle of wine before or

after dinner, or try a yummy Prosecco cocktail. The team at

Station 1870 has also come up with a deliciously creative

crostini menu and a lovely cheese plate to pair with your wines

if you’re looking for a light nibble.

You will want to stick around for a while to enjoy the live

music offered Thursday through Saturday nights. Featured

artist Amaya Rising, whose music is “flamenco-inspired tours of

Europe,” may serenade you with his beautiful viola-playing, and

any number of his musical buddies may show up to jam the

night away.

‘sisters – sculpture By Jane and tyler Burton’

to debut at a new leaf gallery | sculpturesite

First time Collaboration show by sister sculptors Jane and tyler Burton

Renowned figurative ceramic sculptors Jane Burton and Tyler

Burton are debuting their first collaborative exhibition titled

“Sisters” on Saturday, January 26 at A New Leaf Gallery |

Sculpturesite located at Cornerstone in Sonoma. A reception for

the artists will be held on Sunday, January 27 from 2 to 5 p.m. in

the gallery. The show will remain at A New Leaf Gallery |

Sculpturesite until April 21.

Working in collaboration for the first time, sisters Jane and Tyler

Burton have created an installation titled “Selective Memory,”

comprised of more than 1,200 hanging white porcelain rocks

layered over scores of ancestral faces. The 12'H x 7'L x 3'D piece

reflects on family ties, perceived family memories, as well as a

realization that we are all a fragment of a larger whole. Both artists’

works are significantly influenced by the countless patterns,

textures and colors of nature and reveal their reverence for the

power and quietude found there. In addition to the one major

collaborative piece, both Jane and Tyler will exhibit several solo

works each.

Jane Burton has been represented by A New Leaf Gallery |

Sculpturesite owner Brigitte Micmacker for more than eight years.

“I am thrilled that Jane and her sister Tyler are collaborating on

their first show which will take place at our gallery in Sonoma.

The idea for ‘Sisters’ grew out of a two-month residency the Burton

sisters participated in at the Banff Art Centre in Banff, Alberta

Canada,” says Brigitte.

“We have always talked about doing some kind of suspended

work, and porcelain rocks are a natural for us since we both work

in clay and love to collect rocks,” says Jane Burton. “We created

each piece and feel like we imbued our DNA, a common gene, on

each rock. Our original intention was to create a hanging figure

A TASTING ROOM BY DAY…

within the rocks, but as it

progressed, we loved the

simplicity of a suspended box.”

“Working with family or

close friends can be challenging,

and since we are sisters, you

would think it would be

extremely challenging, but Jane

and I have a dynamic that works

really well together,” said Tyler

Burton. “First of all, we have the

same sense of humor and when

together, we laugh a lot. We also

have close to the same esthetic

and an appreciation for each

other’s eye. We can anticipate

what each other will think about

certain things and often we

don’t even have to verbalize a

thought. I believe this gives us a

communication edge.”

A New Leaf Gallery |

Sculpturesite is dedicated

entirely to modern and

contemporary fine art sculpture.

Located within Cornerstone

Sonoma, a unique destination

for art, design, architectural

gardens, wine and food,

Micmacker and Denning have

also created SculptureWALK

that features more than 60 largescale

sculptures placed

throughout the Cornerstone

grounds.

Meadowcroft wines Mardi gras party, february 9

3rd Annual event to Feature Cajun Food,

music and second Line Parade

Meadowcroft Wines will once again get a

jumpstart on Fat Tuesday when they

welcome Mardi Gras in authentic Louisiana

style on Saturday, February 9 from noon to 4

p.m. at the tasting room. Located in

Cornerstone Sonoma (23570 Arnold

Drive/Hwy 121) the third annual party will

be rocking with Louisiana/Cajun/dance

music by Rhythmtown-Jive. Members of the

band will also lead a Second Line parade

throughout the Cornerstone shops and

gardens to get the party in high gear.

All the food for this Mardi Gras

celebration is being flown in from Louisiana.

rice arriving from Baton Rouge, red beans

and rice with Cajun sausage from Eunice,

Jack Miller’s Bar-be-que Sauce from Ville

Platte, as well as French bread, Louisiana

Sensation salad and King Cakes from New

Orleans. And, of course, Cajun food pairs

exceptionally well with all of the

Meadowcroft Wines.

“I don’t believe there is a more authentic

Mardi Gras celebration in Northern

California than what we have done over the

past two years, and it just keeps getting

better,” said Tom Meadowcroft, owner and

winemaker of Meadowcroft Wines. “When it

comes to the food, the music, the parade and

the crowning of our King and Queen of

Mardi Gras, this is as close to a Louisiana

celebration as you can get.”

The Krewe of Meadowcroft Mardi Gras

party is $50 per person in advance and $60

per person beginning February 1, and $40

per person for Meadowcroft Wine Club

members. The ticket price covers food, wine,

music, dancing, parade participation and

fun! Tickets may be purchased by calling the

tasting room at (707) 934-4090 or online at

Family labels. The tasting room is located

within the Cornerstone Sonoma that features

24 world-class gardens, a gourmet café, art

galleries and cutting-edge design shops all set

among acres of vineyards.

a.m. to 5 p.m. The venue is available for

private parties, private tastings, wine dinners

and other events. With plenty of free parking

valentine’s dinner at st. francis winery, feb. 14

Make Valentine’s Day memorable with a very special dinner at

St. Francis from 6:30 to 9 p.m. Celebrate with great wine and food as

Executive Chef David Bush creates an exquisite menu for you and

your special someone. Share an intimate candlelit experience, with

each tantalizing course expertly paired with St. Francis premium

Artisan Series wines.

Cost is $125 per person, $99 for wine club members (plus tax and

gratuity). Reservations are required.

With so many different options for wine tasting in Sonoma Valley,

it can be difficult to choose one over another. One winery may have

great wine and another may have a beautiful view. For the best of

everything, come to St Francis Winery & Vineyards.

Start by admiring the majestic view surrounding the Visitor

Center. With its plush foliage, acres upon acres of vineyards and

intricate, Tuscan-inspired architecture, St. Francis Winery is nothing

short of breathtaking. Sit on the back patio taking in the view nearly

150 acres of estate vineyards as well as the grandeur of Hood

Mountain.

With a number of tasting options, there is a selection of wines

for every palate. The vast majority of St. Francis’ grapes come from

Sonoma Valley, with the rest coming from other top appellations in

Sonoma County, such as Dry Creek Valley and Russian River Valley.

For the ultimate culinary wine adventure, reserve a seat for one

of the winery’s daily wine and food experiences. The winery’s seated

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.” This notto-missed

experience costs $38 and pairs five premium wines with

exceptional gourmet foods from the winery’s talented onsite

Executive Chef David Bush.

For a more informal wine and food pairing, 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. Availability

varies by season.

Winery & Vineyards is located at 100 Pythian Road, Santa Rosa.

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.

vJB cellars open late fridays

Join vJB Cellars as they ring in the New Year

by keeping the Red Rooster Kitchen open late!

Every Friday in 2013, the Red Rooster Kitchen at VJB will stay

open until 7 p.m. and will be serving up wood-fired pizzas, chicken

drumsticks, baby back ribs and much more!

Fill up your VJB jug with their red table wine, enjoy the company

of other locals and top off your evening with a cup of gelato!

During regular tasting room hours (10 a.m. to 5 p.m.), visitors can

taste a number of VJB wines which are produced with an eye toward

new world innovation and old world sensibility, including Californiagrown

Italian varietals such as Barbera, Sangiovese, and Primitivo, a

close relative of Zinfandel.

VJB Cellars is located on a corner parcel, surrounded by

vineyards. From the exterior, the buildings exude old-word style,

reminiscent of Tuscan countryside homes with stucco and stone

façades and red tile roofs. Visitors enter the marketplace through the

piazza – a central square – bordered by unique shops intending to

have the look, feel and charm of an Italian neighborhood village. The

square is adorned with a scattering of wrought iron tables and chairs,

market umbrellas and a cascading fountain where visitors gather.

The new charming Italian-style villa that houses the tasting room,

marketplace and central piazza has quickly become a popular

gathering spot for visitors and locals alike in the small town of

Kenwood at 60 Shaw Avenue. For more information, call (707) 833-

WiNe CoUNtRY NeWs | WiNe CoUNtRY tHis WeeK

lodi’s 16th annual wine & chocolate weekend,

february 9 & 10 featuring Brix chocolate

This year marks the sixteenth occasion of one of Northern

California’s favorite Valentine’s Weekend celebrations: Lodi Wines’

annual Wine & Chocolate Weekend. Festivities are scheduled for

Saturday, February 9th and Sunday, February 10th, from 11 a.m. to

4 p.m. each day. Bring someone special to Lodi Wine Country and

fall in love with the diversity of handcrafted wines from the Lodi

winegrowing region paired with decadent chocolate treats by Brix

Chocolate.

High-end confectioner, Brix Chocolate

(www.brixchocolate.com), is the official chocolate sponsor of this

year’s celebration, generously donating the commemorative

chocolate treats that event attendees will be receiving. Brix

Chocolate has the distinguished privilege of serving as the first

chocolate sponsor of Lodi’s Wine & Chocolate Weekend in 16 years.

Brix is the first line of chocolates that are specifically blended to

compliment wine, based on the varietal. The primary ingredient of

each Brix Chocolate is single origin Ghanaian chocolate, known for

its red fruit tones, mixed with the highest quality confectionery

chocolate. The result is a blend so pure in flavor that it actually

enhances the nuances found in great wines, without confounding

the palate.

In addition to exceptional wines and chocolate, event attendees

to the Lodi Wine & Chocolate Weekend will have the opportunity

to visit over 45 participating wineries over the course of two days

and engage in various activities such as wine and chocolate pairings,

barrel tastings, live music and winery tours. More than 100 prizes

will be awarded to lucky wine and chocolate lovers, including a

Lodi Wine Country Getaway and the “Golden Ticket,” which will be

hidden in a commemorative chocolate bag.

“Lodi’s Wine & Chocolate Weekend is the quintessential

occasion for anyone interested in one of the greatest gustatory

pleasures: the pairing of wine and chocolate,” said Camron King,

Executive Director of the Lodi Winegrape Commission. “Not only

does this event offer exceptional wines, but one can experience the

passion, heritage and variety of the Lodi wine region.”

Tickets are now on sale and can be purchased online at

www.lodiwineandchocolate.com or by calling the Lodi Wine and

Visitors Center at (209) 365-0621. Advance tickets cost $45 per

person and $55 per person during the event. Tickets include a

commemorative wine glass, a chocolate gift, wine tasting and

admission to all participating wineries. Tickets are valid for both

Saturday and Sunday and there is no charge for designated drivers.

love is in the air for upcoming events at garré vineyard & winery

Surrounded by beautiful scenery, Garré Vineyard & Winery is a

part of the historic Livermore Valley Wine Country. From sunrise to

sunset, the panoramic views offer a spectacular backdrop while

enjoying what Garré has to offer.

Garré hosts many annual and seasonal events that have become

tradition, although the details may change the flavor of the event

remains. Throughout the year, events are put on the calendar such as

winemaker dinners, chocolate and wine pairing, who knows … they

may even celebrate a full moon.

If a wedding or special event is in your future, come to Garré on

February 10 for a Bridal Faire, held at Garré’s Martinelli Event

Center – a beautiful Hacienda-styled building complete with an

outdoor cobblestoned courtyard, fireplace and fountain. The outdoor

ceremony area has a wisteria covered arbor overlooking the valley.

The mission-style surroundings bring a feel of ‘simply stated beauty.’

On February 9 and 14, love is in the air at Garré. Music and

flowers set the tone for their annual Valentine’s Dinner. Enjoy a

delectable menu created by the chef, expertly paired with Garré’s fine

wines to celebrate this evening of romance.

Festival to showcase international Whites, dinner by Chef John Ash

For the eighth consecutive year, the Anderson Valley

Winegrowers Association will host the International Alsace Varietals

Festival – an event that has become a premier showcase for Alsacestyle

whites from around the world. The 2013 festival, to be held

February 9-10, features a winemaker dinner by Chef John Ash, a

cooking demonstration by mother-and-son duo Joyce and Evan

Goldstein and much more.

Producers from Anderson Valley to Alsace will pour Riesling,

Gewürztraminer, Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc and Muscat during the

weekend’s festivities. Alsace Festival events will include an

educational seminar, a food and wine pairing demonstration, a grand

tasting, a group winemaker dinner and winery open houses.

Saturday morning’s educational session will blend both pertinent

issues in winemaking and grape growing with wine tasting. Topics

will range from botrytis management to a “Gastro Tour of Alsace”

and a 30-year retrospective Riesling tasting by Greenwood Ridge

Vineyards Winemaker Allan Green.

The Alsace Varietals Grand Tasting on Saturday afternoon will

showcase aromatic white wines from approximately 30 producers.

Fantastic small bites will be paired with the wines, including:

Tomales Bay oysters; tarte flambée by Piaci’s Pizza; a selection of

cheeses from Boont Berry Farm; a pork belly dish created by Chef

Marc Dym of The Little River Inn; custom chocolates from Essence

by Chocolate, and several others.

Evan Goldstein, M.S. – cookbook author and president and chief

education officer at Full Circle Wine Solutions, Inc. – will host an

engaging and educational food & wine pairing demonstration just

prior to Saturday’s grand tasting. His mother, Joyce Goldstein, also

an acclaimed food author and expert, will join her son for the

demonstration. Together, they will prepare a recipe from their book,

Perfect Pairings: A Master Sommelier’s Practical Advice for Partnering

Wine with Food, and pair the dish with wines from attending

wineries. Attendees will learn tips and tricks from the pros, and have

a chance to sample the dish at the Alsace Festival Grand Tasting, just

after the demonstration.

Participating wineries at the festival have included: Anne Amie

Vineyards, Arista, Banyan/The Hobo Wine Co., Alderbrook Winery,

Bowers Harbor, Brandborg Vineyard & Winery, Breggo Cellars,

Brooks Winery, Grand Traverse, Chateau Ste. Michelle, Chehalem,

Claiborne & Churchill, Claudia Springs Winery, Domaine Charles

Monterey County is perfectly complemented with our incredible

array of intimate dining options, world-class shopping and spa

experiences, and the most beautiful coastline in the world,” she

added.

The designation is the result of Wine Enthusiast editors who trek

the globe each year in search of the most exciting places to visit.

Decisions are based on overall cultural experience, timeliness, travel

infrastructure and, of course, wine quality in the region. The entire

list is featured in the February 2013 issue of Wine Enthusiast,

available on newsstands now.

Monterey County has seen a stunning forty percent increase of

tasting rooms in the last year and is home to more than 40,000 acres

of premium vineyards. Wine enthusiasts are able to take public

transit to tasting rooms in rustic Carmel Valley which is home to the

new East End Wine Row. Shoppers can mix finding their latest

treasure with wine tasting in Carmel-by-the-Sea. Fifteen tasting

rooms are now located in the walkable one square mile known for

unique shops. Vineyard experiences along River Road are also gaining

momentum with ATV rides through the vines.

“There are amazing things happening in Monterey County,

especially in wine. I feel we are finally getting the recognition we

deserve,” said Sabrine Rodems, winemaker of Monterey County

based Wrath Wines.

an association of 14 Monterey County winery tasting rooms, located

primarily along the River Road / Foothill Road corridor, on the Santa

Lucia bench above the Salinas Valley. Charming and intimate, these

tasting rooms specialize in limited release vintages and genuine

hospitality. Often, visitors will be sampling with the actual

winemaker. Conveniently situated just east of Monterey and Carmel,

Trail has become one of the Central Coast’s premiere wine touring

destinations. The group’s online home is RiverRoadWineTrail.com.
