WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK | WINE COUNTRY NEWS

Quality Wines All Under $25

at Wine Garage, Calistoga

Hidden next to a dilapidated ’40s-era former filling station on Highway 29 in

Calistoga lies the Wine Garage. A unique wine shop in Napa Valley that retails all

wine in the store under $25. Sound crazy Its true. And the proprietors Todd and

Joy Miller, have hit on a niche in the Valley that had been very missed by the locals

there.

“There are a lot of winemakers here that can’t afford to drink the wine they

make” says Miller. “That’s crazy, yes, but who can afford to drink a $65 bottle with

dinner every night”

Many people miss the Wine Garage on the first try upvalley, but the search is

well worth it. Miller stocks wine from all of California’s wine growing regions

including an large assortment from Napa and Sonoma counties and other California

appellations. When he first sought out buying the initial inventory, “I enlisted

a local farmer buddy and his 15-foot box van and off we went all over California

hunting down the deals. I tried to seek out the small producers who didn’t have

distributors so I could pass the savings on to my customers.” And Miller did just

that. His store is stocked with high-quality juice all under $25 and all are unique.

Most labels in the shop are unrecognizable – but all pass the same test; everything

passes over Miller’s lips before he makes a buy. “If I don’t love it, I don’t buy it,

period. Sometimes I will taste over a hundred wines in one day, load up the truck

and haul it up to Calistoga, unload at the store, and maybe I will crawl in bed by 3

a.m. Needless to say my buddy bowed out of the deal after their second trip. I

initially recruited him on a ‘hey lets go wine tasting in Santa Barbara’ until he realized

how much work it entailed. Poor guy, he had to be at the farm at 5 in the

morning.”

It is all worth it. Millers’ customers love him. He has a unique ability to hear a

verbal description of a customer’s favorite wine and translate that into a recommendation

for sometimes a third of the cost. “I have people all over the country that use

me as their local wine shop. I ship right to their door – and the cost of the shipping

is a drop in the bucket compared to what they save on the cost of the wine.

Miller gets deals on Napa wine too. “I have winemakers from small wineries

stop in every week saying ‘I have something that will fit into the store,’ if they only

have 15 or 25 cases of an end-of-vintage wine – I am the perfect outlet for them.”

So head up to the Wine Garage and check out the best deals in the Valley at

1020 Foothill Blvd (Hwy 29), Calistoga, CA 94515. For more information, call

(707) 942-5332. You can also check out the website at winegarage.net.

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

by Len Napolitano

Why should I smell wine before I taste it

A wine’s aroma is mostly responsible for what you taste. Try sipping

wine while holding your nose closed and you’ll find that it has virtually

no taste at all. The little bit of flavor that you get with your nose

closed is because the wine’s aroma has entered your nasal cavity

through your mouth.

A wine’s aroma originates from chemical molecules in a gaseous

state that rise from the surface of the wine. Even in small concentrations,

we are able to detect the presence of these molecules in the form

of distinct fragrances.

Every individual aroma that we can identify in a wine, and thus,

every flavor we perceive, is actually a chemical compound. These are

compound groups such as alcohols, aldehydes and esters. They have

names like ethyl acetate, benzoic aldehyde, and piperonal. An offsmelling

wine with the aroma of rotten eggs actually has excessive

hydrogen sulfide.

When sniffing and tasting wine, concentrate on the individual

aromas that make up a wine’s overall impression. Wine is warmed as

it enters the mouth, which releases the

aromas that travel up a passage in the

back of the mouth. The membranes

along this route are what perceive the

aroma as either pleasant or foul and enable you to identify a specific

aroma.

The next time you want to impress someone with your wine tasting

aptitude, take a sip of Chardonnay with flavors of honey, butter and

nuances of hazelnut and then declare how much you love its balance

of phenyl-ethylic acids and undecalactones. You will be admired more

for your skills at pronunciation than wine tasting.

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. Send your questions

WINERY FEATURE | WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK

SEQUOIA GROVE VINEYARDS

by Diana Greenwood

Some things get better with age. Sequoias,

for example, grow from delicate seedlings to

majestic trees with massive trunks the width

of a barn and branches that stretch from

cloud to cloud. With age, giant Sequoias are

wise and wonderful proof that time rooted in

a single spot is just what a seedling needs to

thrive.

Sequoia Grove Vineyards was a seedling

in 1978, planted at 8338 St. Helena Highway

under the shade of Sequoias already giant at

the time. But there wasn’t much else useful in

the spot except a rundown vineyard, a

century-old barn, and an old farmhouse that

needed a chain saw and a sledgehammer to

make it livable. The vineyards were torn out

and extensive replanting was completed,

primarily Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon,

the winery mostly growing grapes for

neighbors also new to the business. The barn

stayed and became the tasting room and

bottling line area, the working winery one

where if you popped in at any given time you

might be given a task to complete.

One of the wisest decisions made in those

seedling years was the hiring of Michael

Trujillo who came on board as Winemaker in

1982, bringing along his knowledge of

chemistry and a winemaking certificate from

the University of California at Davis. Today,

as Director of Winemaking and President of

Sequoia Grove, Michael has witnessed the

staying power of a solid, award-winning

Cabernet Sauvignon, his signature wine that

speaks of rich soil and velvety fruit. For years

he produced two versions of this wine, a

Reserve and Sequoia Grove Napa Valley

Cabernet Sauvignon. But in 2007 he decided

to combine the two, offering a richer, more

complex wine that shows varietal expression,

structure, and balance with a true sense of

place. Michael describes the 2007 Sequoia

Grove Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon as

red-black in color with intense aromas of

blackberry, black cherry and currants interwoven

with burnt toast and tar. On the

palate, flavors of sweet ripe raspberries come

through and the wine has smooth tannins

and creamy weight with an impeccable

balance and a long finish.

“In my winemaking I strive for balance

and varietal character to come through,” said

Michael. “I don’t get carried away with the

big, high-alcohol wine trend that influences

much of the industry. I strive for richness

and balance from start to finish.”

The 2007 Sequoia Grove Napa Valley

Cabernet Sauvignon is approachable now

but will evolve beautifully as it ages in the

bottle, getting even better over time. The

winery recently completed a program along

with Firebirds Wood Fire Grill called “Buy a

Bottle, Save a Tree” where 10% of sales from

bottle purchases were donated to the

Sequoia Grove Vineyards’ Save a Tree

Campaign, an initiative benefitting the

Sequoia Parks Foundation. The program

raised awareness of the need to protect these

silent giants, the world’s largest trees.

The tasting room, recently remodeled but

still rustic and old-barn casual, is on the top

of the friendly list in the Napa Valley with a

staff that likes to chat. When you’ve been

around a long time, some things just come

naturally so expect to learn a lot about the

history of the region and the winemaking

process. You’ll hear too, the story of the

Sequoia that was struck by lightning and

crashed through the roof in 2003, leaving a

hole the perfect size for a skylight, now

called, of course, “the lightning skylight.”

Always thrifty, the winery salvaged the wood

from the enormous tree and made presentation

boxes. There are copper details, upscale

wine-country gifts, and you’ll lean on a

polished tasting counter made of a single

piece of wood. Two large upright French

casks or “puncheons” flank the double-door

entrance, and there always seems to be a

pleasant and earthy mix of scents here; the

heady scent of fermenting wine, wildflowers,

and even a hint of sawdust. Set back from

Highway 29, this is a quiet place where wind

whispers through the branches above lovely

gardens backed by 22 acres of estate vineyards.

Sequoia Grove Vineyards is open daily for

WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK | WINERY FEATURE

tasting from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

and the tasting fee is $15. You’ll

try current releases that will

include wines produced exclusively

for the winery as well as

their more widely-available varietals.

If you love Chardonnay, try

the 2008 Carneros Napa Valley

Chardonnay, an affordable wine

for any occasion. Rich gold in

color, the aroma is heady and

intense with complex notes of

lemon verbena, fresh mango and

crème brulée. Further olfactory

discovery leads to red ripe apple,

cinnamon, toasted pineapple

and lemon/lime aromas. There is

a hint of mineral steeliness,

similar to wet river rocks, in the

background. The wine has bright

lemon/lime on the palate,

continuing to ripe pineapple and

ending with a long, custardy

finish.

Located at 8338 St. Helena

Highway, Sequoia Grove Vineyards

offers casual tours Monday

through Thursday at 11:30 a.m.

and 2 p.m. You’ll be greeted with

a glass of Chardonnay and then

take a guided jaunt through the

vineyards, winemaking facility

and grounds under the shade of

the giant Sequoia trees. The tour

concludes with a barrel sampling

of future vintages. For special

events and additional tour and

tasting options, visit the website

at www.sequoiagrove.com or call

1-800-851-7841 or locally, (707)

944-2945. On weekends there is

a wine and chocolate pairing

program from 2 to 3:30 p.m. that

promises to perk up your palate

with wines selected to complement

handmade chocolates from

local chocolatiers. There is a

minimum of four people and

reservations are required.

Sequoia Grove Vineyards is a

place that has aged gracefully as

wine does, and as those majestic

Sequoias do too.

Perfect Pairs BY

LEN NAPOLITANO

Braised Lamb Shanks

with Joseph Phelps

2007 Napa Valley

Cabernet Sauvignon

In the art of pairing wine with food, like in literature, there

are classics. For every Moby Dick or Tom Sawyer, there’s an

equally legendary food and wine combination, like Sauternes

with Stilton cheese or this column’s pairing of lamb with a red

Bordeaux-varietal wine such as Cabernet Sauvignon. Although

a reasonable argument could be made for pairing a red

Burgundy-varietal wine, specifically, Pinot Noir, with a lamb

dish, this flavorful recipe for Braised Lamb Shanks from Napa

Valley-based Joseph Phelps Vineyards demands a wine with a

little more muscle and intensity. It could be said that these

braised lamb shanks and the Joseph Phelps 2007 Cabernet

Sauvignon work together as naturally as Tom Sawyer and

Huckleberry Finn.

A lamb shank takes the meat located below the knee of the

leg, a meat which is typically tough and lean. Therefore, it’s

necessary to break down the connective tissues that make the

meat tough through a combination of dry heat (searing the

surfaces) and moist heat (simmering in liquid). What’s more, a

slow, extended period of heating the meat and then allowing it

to sit overnight after being cooked will easily convert the meat

from tough to tender.

What makes this Cabernet Sauvignon the perfect wine for

this recipe is its balance of tannin structure with intense

flavors of blackberries and plum. The mouthwatering fatty

compounds in the lamb are cleansed from the palate by the

wine’s soft, dry tannins. On the other hand, the robust fruit

and its natural acid contribution is countered by the recipe’s

generous amounts of salt, pepper and tomato paste. Perhaps

most important to the success of this pairing is the fact that

the wine is outstanding on its own merit. In fact, it earned a

rare “trifecta” of wine ratings, scoring 91 points from three

different wine publications: The Wine Advocate, International

Wine Cellar and Wine Spectator Online. Though well-known

for its flagship wine, “Insignia,” Joesph Phelps offers many

highly rated wines across the board.

Joseph Phelps Vineyards offers tastings by

appointment only. Check the website for terrace tastings

at www.josephphelps.com/tastings or the seminars at

www.josephphelps.com/seminars. All are by appointment.

Call the Guest Center directly at 1-800-707-5789 or

(707) 967-3720 to make a reservation.

BRAISED LAMB SHANKS

Recipe by Stephen Pavy Serves: 6-8

This dish should be made over a two-day timeframe, if possible.

Aside from enhancing the flavors, this leisurely preparation schedule

allows the cook plenty of time to clean up after the messiest part of the

preparations.

• 7 - 8 lbs. lamb shanks –

Have your butcher crack the shanks for easier handling

• Salt and freshly ground pepper to (generously) sprinkle over the shanks

• 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

• 2 large onions, very coarsely chopped

• 2 medium shallots, sliced

• 6 garlic cloves, peeled

• 5 medium carrots cut into large chunks

• 3 celery ribs, cut into large chunks

• 3 tablespoons double strength Italian tomato paste

• 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme leaves

• 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary

• 3 cups red wine

• 5 cups low sodium chicken broth

Pre-heat oven to 350°F

Sprinkle salt and pepper all over lamb shanks.

Heat olive oil in large heavy-bottomed kettle or Dutch oven over

medium-high heat until shimmering. (I strongly recommend one with

greater than 6 quart capacity, otherwise spillage is very likely.)

Place shanks in single layer in kettle or Dutch oven. (You will need to

repeat this since not all shanks will fit at once.) Cook, turning once, until

shanks are nicely browned all over. This should take around 7 minutes

per layer. Transfer shanks to platter and set aside.

Add all vegetables, herbs, tomato paste and ½ tsp. salt to kettle or Dutch

oven and cook until vegetables begin to soften (3-4 minutes). Add wine,

and then stock, using wooden spoon to pry up browned bits on bottom

of pan. Bring liquid to simmer, then add the reserved lamb shanks and

additional salt and pepper to taste.

Cover tightly and place in pre-heated oven. Cook for 1 ½ hours. Uncover

and cook for 30 minutes more. Turn shanks and cook, still uncovered, for

15 minutes longer.

Remove from oven and use tongs to remove bone from shanks. (The

meat should be sufficiently tender that it is falling off the bone at this

point.) Place cooled bones on platter so that you can remove last bits of

meat (add these bits to the pot) by hand before discarding bones.

Allow to cool and then refrigerate overnight.

One hour before serving, scrape congealed fat from surface of chilled

broth/lamb and discard fat. Place pot on stove and heat thoroughly

through. Liquid should be simmering.

Allow guests to spoon lamb and vegetables into shallow bowls, passing

bread for the sauce. (I prefer Della Fattoria polenta bread but any rustic

will do just fine.)

Domaine Carneros – A Sparkling Delight

by Rachel Hall

24

This is living. I’m sitting here sipping

award-winning sparkling wine by the fireplace

while my husband savors Pinot Noir, in

a gorgeous winery chateau, overlooking

rolling hills of beautiful vineyards.

The family at the next table has ordered a

bottle of wine. A couple nearby is enjoying

flights of wine. Food lovers that we are, we’re

debating which to order: a plate of artisan

cheeses, smoked salmon, charcuterie

(prepared meats), French-style pastries or the

ultimate indulgence – caviar.

We feel like royalty, even though we’re

totally comfortable in our usual travel garb.

The hospitality is warm, gracious and

inviting. And the biggest surprise This taste

of luxury is amazingly easy on the pocketbook

– tastings, food pairings and wines!

Domaine Carneros is a sparkling jewel of a

winery, set on a knoll about five miles west of

Napa, five miles east of Sonoma, all decked

out in holiday splendor. Got a camera The

beauty of the gardens and “Famous Gate,” the

grand staircase, fountains, terraces, salon,

holiday décor and views are a photographer’s

dream.

The majestic chateau is modeled after

Champagne Taittinger in France. The

Carneros winery was founded by the Taittinger

family, and the wines truly rival those

of Champagne and Burgundy. Since its inception

in 1987, Eileen Crane has served as CEO

and sparkling winemaker. Over the years,

she’s become something of a legend – innovative,

masterly and down to earth all at the

same time. She’s led the winery in a philosophy

of sustainability, and it feels good

knowing the winery farms all its vineyards

organically and collects and uses solar power,

too.

I’ve seen Domaine Carneros Vintage Brut

in a few shops and restaurants, but I had no

idea they produced such a selection of

bubbly, Pinot Noir and other still wines. Our

host tells me only three of their wines are

distributed while all the rest are available

exclusively from the winery. In addition, two

were just included in Saveur magazine’s “21

California Wines to Drink Now,” and almost

all consistently earn over 90 points from

Wine Spectator magazine.

So while we eagerly await our “Art of

Sparkling Wine” tour (we’ve heard it’s a gem),

I’m strolling the gift shop finishing my 2010

gift giving in style. There are sparkling and

still wines in keepsake wood boxes, wine and

chocolate toffee duos, etched flutes, decanters

and more.

I’m treating my husband to membership

in the Chateau Society Wine Club. We’ll

receive access to exclusive wines found only

at the winery (some only available to club

members), the sheer delight of Domaine

Carneros wines on our doorstep six times

each year, complimentary tastings

throughout the year, entrée to the club

members-only salon, invitations to special

events and savings on everything we buy

today. Perfect time to stock up on bubbles for

New Year’s Eve!

Take my advice: Don’t miss Domaine

Carneros. Make it a family holiday tradition,

getaway with friends or your own private

retreat. Whatever the occasion, it’s an incomparable

place to linger and enjoy the best of

wine country.

Domaine Carneros is located at 1240

Duhig Road, off Hwy. 121 between Napa and

Sonoma. For more information, call (707)

257-0101 or visit www.domainecarneros.com.

5th Annual Sonoma Valley Gingerbread Winery Contest

Rings in Season Long “Holiday in the Vines” Celebration

Sonoma Valley’s Vintner’s & Growers Alliance has

announced the contestants in the 5th Annual Sonoma

Valley Gingerbread Winery Contest where wineries

create edible replicas of their wineries. This signature

event kicks off the Holiday in the Vines, a calendar of

Sonoma Valley winery events including Open Houses,

Winemaker Dinners, visits from Santa, Toy Drives and

musical events. For the complete list of festivities, visit

www.sonomavalleywine.com.

Each year, Ramona Nicholson of Nicholson Ranch

challenges the Sonoma Valley wineries to pick up their spatula and

join the fun. This year’s creation by Tasting Room Manager Charles

Whittaker includes a diorama of the hillside complete with their beautiful

rock walls, waterfall and chapel that will be hard to beat!

Throughout the month of December, visitors can pick up a map and

a ballot at any of the participating wineries and vote for their favorite

gingerbread winery. As an added bonus, each time voters cast a ballot

either at the wineries or on the Sonoma Valley Grapes & Wine Facebook

page, they’ll be entered into a raffle to win a case of Sonoma

Valley wines.

Larson Family Winery, last year’s winner, will again have their

winery created by Rose Fanucchi of Sweet Treats. Anaba Wines associate

and Culinary Institute of America graduate Gretchen Heller is

constructing a gingerbread winery that features a

“working” wind turbine like the one on their property

that harnesses the anabatic winds that blow through the

Carneros vineyards powering their property. Kelly

Cleaver is taking on B.R. Cohn Winery’s Rock & Roll

House of Cohn as well as Chateau St. Jean’s alien adventure.

A flying saucer has crashed into the chateau in

search of the best wine featuring sweet green slime!

dollhouse take on their historic tasting room created by

Tiffany Laufer & Kevin Hamann. Chef Khambay Khamsyvoravong

of Mayo Family Winery is taking on their charming Glen

Ellen winery. Annette McDonnell and crew is creating Winter in

WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK | WINE COUNTRY NEWS

Winemaker Profile: B.R. Cohn Winery

TOM MONTGOMERY

by Brendan Conroy

For the past seven years Tom Montgomery,

the winemaker at B.R. Cohn, has

established a wide spectrum of different

varietals for the everyday consumer to

enjoy. Instead of simply specializing in one

or two specific varietals, as is common with

many winemakers, Montgomery instead

searches for the best possible growing

conditions for each specific grape and

sources from that appellation thereby

creating a true cornucopia of flavor and

complexity within the wine itself. With his

32 different wines to select from, there is a

wine for every palate and preference. Montgomery

focuses on creating big reds that

are very well extracted (typically meaning

concentrated, however there are specific

winemaking techniques that exemplify this

concept) and very low yield. The estate

vineyards themselves are nestled in a gap

between the Mayacama Mountains and

Sonoma Mountain. According to Montgomery,

this creates a reliable airflow to the

grapes which in turn heats this area better

www.WineCountryThisWeek.com

than appellations in Kenwood and Sonoma

because it consistently creates slightly

hotter days and slightly cooler nights for

the grapes. In the case of B.R. Cohn’s wine,

this natural advantage creates a blend of a

heavily structured front palate with a soft,

refined finish.

Montgomery’s overall goal for his wine is

to slowly shy away from blending multiple

vineyards into one wine and make production

exclusively from multiple single vineyards.

In the future, he plans to create a Bill

Pauley Vineyard Barbera (Tuscan grape as

well as the first Barbera for B.R. Cohn) as

well as a late harvest Semillon that is sure

to be a crowd pleaser. When using grapes

from such illustrious vineyards such as

Sangiacomo for its fantastic, ripe fruit or

Rochioli for its rich tannin structure, who

would need to blend from other vineyards

in order to create a better wine Fortunately

for the consumer, the wine itself not only

holds up to, but also exemplifies each of

these vineyards’ individual qualities and

reputations.

The total case production at B.R. Cohn

Winery is roughly 25,000 annually of highend

or estate-grown wines. Another 50,000

cases are produced and bottled off-site of

Silver Label which is widely distributed in all

50 states. Silver Label was created in 1992

and directly accelerated B.R. Cohn’s popularity

to its current position today. Tied to

Bruce Cohn’s music is Doobie Red that gives

back to the people. To date the Doobie Red

and the Annual Charity Fall Music Festival

(yearly rock-and-roll concert with some very

prestigious performers) has raised more than

5.5 million dollars toward donating to

specific charities many of which being military

veterans organizations. So come to B.R.

Cohn to enjoy not only a wide variety of

wines, but also come to the Annual Charity

Fall Music Festival in order to hear great

music and to support charity with a bottle of

Doobie Red.

B. R. Cohn is located at 15000 Sonoma

Highway (Highway 12, just north of the

corner of Madrone Road), Glen Ellen. Call

1-800-330-4064 x124 or check the website

at www.brcohn.com. The tasting room is

open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.

Welcome to

S U I S U N V A L L E Y

Que Sera, Sera … No, Petite Sirah – Suisun Valley

… No crowds, just beauty and peace for every soul’s palate

Submitted by ‘The Sipping Savant’

Do you think you are a red wine lover, really You might be intimidated

by Petite Sirah, a noble grape. Often used to blend with

Cabernet Sauvignon, only the heartiest of red wine aficionados will

appreciate this adventurous and bold varietal. If you were to compare

it to a woman, think sassy redhead. Compare this wine to a man and

think pirate “a la Johnny Depp.”

A long and quiet history of grape growing in Suisun Valley records

this grape as the oldest of the original vineyards planted. Enter Frank

Vezer, a pioneer who decided, along with his wife Liz, to move their

international mining businesses to Suisun Valley some 25 years ago to

raise their family aside their vineyards. This fiery son of Hungarian

emigrants has just the adventurous and bold personality to match the

art of harvesting the Petite Sirah and creating award-winning wine!

Along with the Petite Sirah, Vezer Family Vineyard offers some

equally big red selections of Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon. The

Zinfandel has garnered a variety of gold, silver and bronze medals at

Orange County, Los Angeles and San Francisco competitions.

Like children, it is hard to have a “favorite,” but one wine is truly a

Vezer Family heart-throb – the La Salette. This blend offers the best of

Suisun Valley Zinfandel and Petite Sirah. The nose, is first teased with

aromas of ripe cherry, toasted oak and ripe

plum. The taste is rich and bold with

lingering presence on the palate followed by

a lively fruit finish. “La Salette” is loosely

translated from Portuguese means “never

ending love.”

Where there is fabulous red wine,

dazzling white wines must follow. Since Liz

Vezer is a talented chef and entertaining

28

“small tribes” is a regular ritual for Frank

and Liz, no paired food and wine menu

would be complete without white wine.

Enter more award-winning wine from

Vezer Family Vineyard fruit from their

Verdelho and Sauvignon Blanc.

Fiery Frank did not stop at phenomenal red and white wines,

welcome new family member - Franci Black Muscat (Franci is one of

their daughters) and the perfect dessert wine to finish the culinary

talents of Liz Vezer, or the Chef in your home!

Vezer Family Vineyards is open daily for tastings without appointment.

Enjoy the Blue Victorian at 5071 Suisun Valley Road or their

Barista Café & Tasting Room at the historic home of the Pony Express

at 2522 Mankas Corner Road. Vezer Family Estate welcomes reservations

for escorted ATV Vineyards tours. The “trio” of beautiful wineries

welcomes groups from 20 to 300 for concerts, fund-raiser dinners,

casual barbecues and weddings. Plan some time with this feisty family!

Visit www.vezerfamilyvineyard.com, call 1-888-823-VINE (8563) or

email info@vezerfamilyvineyard.com for more information.

BONUS FOR THE MONTH OF DECEMBER

Purchase one case of Vezer Family Vineyard red wine

150th Annivesary Celebration at Charles Krug Winery

Peter Mondavi Sr. Family Toasts Historic Wedding

of Napa Valley’s First Winemaker

Caroline Bale was the daughter of Dr. Edward Bale and Maria

Soberanes, a niece of General Mariano Vallejo. On the day after

Christmas in 1860, just weeks after Abraham Lincoln was elected

president, Caroline was married to Charles Krug. It was a fortuitous

union for the Napa Valley’s winemaker: Caroline’s dowry provided

the land for the Charles Krug estate, thereby launching the regional

wine industry that put a small rural California valley firmly on the

world map.

150 years later, on December 26, 2010, the Peter Mondavi Sr.

family will throw a party to celebrate that historic marriage: Charles’

and Caroline’s 150th wedding anniversary festivities will take place

in the tasting room from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. The party will also

serve to kick off the 150th anniversary of Napa Valley’s first winery,

which Charles Krug founded in 1861.

Charles Krug’s Historic Restorations Honored

Governor Schwarzenegger pays tribute to Napa Valley’s oldest winery

On November 19, Peter Mondavi Jr., proprietor of Charles Krug Winery, accepted

the Governor’s Historic Preservation Award for 2010. The honor was bestowed by

Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and California’s Office of Historic Preservation for

restorations of two landmark buildings at his family’s winery in St. Helena, Napa Valley.

Peter Mondavi Jr. accepted the award on behalf of his brother Marc, and their father,

Peter Mondavi Sr.

The Peter Mondavi Family was commended for their restoration of Charles Krug’s

1872 Redwood Cellar and 1881 Carriage House. Charles Krug is Napa Valley’s oldest

winery, founded in 1861, and the two historic structures represent the birthplace of the

Napa Valley wine industry. The Redwood Cellar remains a working winery as it was in

Charles Krug’s day, and the Carriage House is now a popular venue for special events.

Both buildings are registered at the National Register of Historic Places and the California

Historic Landmarks.

The Governor’s Historic Preservation Award honors outstanding achievements in the

field of historic preservation of California’s cultural heritage.

One of the historical challenges of the Charles Krug restorations was sourcing stone

to repair the pink rhyolite vintner Charles Krug used in the original foundation, the trim

for 80 windows, plus every doorway, arch, base and corner of the two buildings. During

the renovations, which took close to two years to complete, the Redwood Cellar’s soaring

stone walls and cathedral-like atmosphere were preserved and, in the Carriage House,

finely hewn redwood planks from the winery’s heirloom wine tanks were salvaged and

refitted to beautiful effect. Heritage olive trees located near the buildings, believed to be

almost 150 years old and likely planted by Charles Krug himself, were also carefully

preserved during the construction, and replanted near the winery’s front entrance.

WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK | CALISTOGA

Calistoga’s Brannan Cottage Inn – Relaxing, Casual, Comfortable

Brannan Cottage Inn is a charming Victorian Wine Country Bed

and Breakfast, listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It

was built in 1860 by Samuel Brannan, Calistoga’s founder and one

of California’s early entrepreneurs. Of the original 25 cottages at his

original Calistoga Hot Springs Resort, only three remain and the Inn

has the only cottage remaining at its original location according to

the town layout developed by Brannan.

This Napa Valley B&B is located in the small, walkable, comfortable

town of Calistoga, about 25 miles north of Napa at the top of

the wine country. Guests at the Inn have easy access to all Napa

Valley wineries, the three wine regions in Sonoma County (Sonoma

Valley, Alexander Valley and Russian River Valley) to the west and

northwest, and the burgeoning Lake County region to the north.

Distinguished by its intricate gingerbread, gable-board and scalloped

ridge cresting, the inn features a broad wrap-around porch and

a private, shaded patio and garden on the north side of the main

building. On the south, sunny side we have a large lawn area (with

comfortable adirondack chairs) and rose and flower gardens. There

is a total of six rooms: three standard one- bedroom units, one deluxe

one-bedroom unit, and two mini-suites with sitting rooms (each of

which can sleep up to four guests). All rooms have queen-size beds

and private baths and entrance/exits. Five of the six also have ceiling

fans and fireplaces. A full breakfast is offered each morning. On

Fridays, local wineries pour their finest wines on the patio or in the

parlor; along with hot and cold appetizers - check out the latest

winery schedule on the website’s Specials and Packages page.

Brannan Cottage Inn Bed and Breakfast is located at 109 Wapoo

Avenue, Calistoga – approximately five minutes walking distance to

Calistoga’s popular restaurants, spas, shops and sports facilities.

For reservations or more information, call (707) 942-4200,

email BrannanCottageInn@sbcglobal.net or visit the Inn‘s website at

The Candlelight Inn

by Charles Neave

36

For almost six years I lived right around

the corner from Napa’s Candlelight Inn.

When I’d go out for a walk, I couldn’t help

but look down the small lane it occupies, and

it always enchanted me. Part fairy tale, part

hidden retreat, it cast a mystical spell. It was

like a childhood fantasy, a storybook illusion.

Then one day I walked to the end of the lane,

knocked on the door, and asked if I could

look inside. What followed was a tour, an invitation to come back

anytime, and a continuation of that enchantment.

In 1929 when Napa’s postmaster built this Tudor-style mansion I’m

sure he had no idea what the Valley would one day become. No one

did. But with its whitewashed plaster, dark oak timbers and manicured

grounds, the inn is now a splendid retreat for visitors to wine

country.

Perhaps a 15 minute walk from downtown Napa, this ten room

bed and breakfast sits among towering trees – including some majestic

redwoods – and backs onto quiet Napa Creek. To one side is a fenced

pasture. Yet the location is still close to restaurants (more of them

opening everyday it seems), shopping and wineries, including a

number of popular winery tasting rooms.

The rooms at the inn are all unique. Some have balconies overlooking

the pool, others have decks. Some even have fireplaces and

two person in-room Jacuzzi tubs.

Happily, the inn’s breakfasts are famous as well. They are both

casual and gourmet, and fit the overall ambiance of the property beautifully

and are served in the English countryinspired

dining room. A different menu is

carefully prepared and served each day by the

inn’s chef, and there is always an assortment of

tea, freshly brewed coffee, fresh juice and

seasonal fruit. Tables for two provide the

option for privacy, or if you’d like, converse

with fellow guests as you look out onto the

grounds abutting the creek where the pool is

located. Except or the sounds of birds and the

rustle of leaves in the trees, it is serenity

personified. And by the way, if you are particularly enamored by one

or more of the dishes and would like the recipe, just ask. It’s another

souvenir to take home

In the warm months, of which there are an envious number, the

pool is a popular meeting place for visitors, many of whom return on

a regular basis. In cooler months the parlor becomes the focal point.

Local and national newspapers are spread out on the dining room

table and an assortment of snacks appear each afternoon. Some days

local wineries such as Robert Biale and many others may come and

pour their wines for a complimentary late-afternoon tasting. It is also

a great way to catch up on local news and local insight, something also

provided by the inn’s owners and always-helpful staff. Just one of so

many reasons to put this stellar property at the top of your agenda.

The Candlelight Inn is located at 1045 Easum Drive just a minutes

drive west of the intersection of Route 29 and First Street. For reservations

and information call our 1-800-624-0395 or within the (707) at

257-3717. Also, reservations may be made at www.candlelightinn.com

and be sure to follow them on www.facebook.com/thecandlelightinn.

Prominent Photographer’s Compelling New Exhibit at Mumm Napa Valley

Finding grace in every step that we take is the theme of Yesterday

and Today, Mumm Napa Valley Winery’s powerful new fine art

photography exhibit, which celebrates the changing faces of people

over time, as captured by acclaimed portrait photographer Art Rogers.

This exhibit will be on view through March 13 in the winery’s popular

Fine Art Photography Gallery. With its exhibits, Mumm Napa Valley

has established a strong reputation over the years for its fine art

photography.

Comprised of more than 100 black-and-white, silver gelatin

photographs, the exhibit honors the passage of time through the

changing images of individuals over the course of 30 years in the same

location. The earliest photograph was taken in 1975, the most recent

in 2010. The photographs highlight the poignancy and profound

beauty evident in the passing of generations. At Rogers’ suggestion, the

exhibit emphasizes time as being measured in change much more than

in passing years. One series for example showcases a couple both on

their wedding day and after their first year of marriage, while another

captures the changes in siblings as they travel from childhood to adulthood.

“The idea behind these photographs is to see them and feel good

about moving forward,” says Rogers. “I want to elevate the passage of

time to a thing of elegance and honor.”

Calistoga

Rogers, whose collected works have appeared in Life magazine and

TUBBS LANE

LINCOLN

hung in both the International Center of Photography in New York as

well as the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, has spent more than

40 years as a professional photographer. Yesterday and Today was

born from a passion for photographing neighbors, friends and family

in the small town of Point Reyes where Rogers has lived since 1971.

“It’s thrilling to see a baby becoming a child and that child a young

man or woman,” Rogers explains. “Some people see growing older as

degeneration, I see regeneration.”

Yesterday and Today is one of two fine art photography exhibits

featured at Mumm Napa Valley Winery. A private collection of original

signed Ansel Adams photographs, currently on loan from the Ansel

Adams family, also hangs in the winery’s Private Collection Gallery

year-round. Visitors may sample sparkling wine while soaking in the

beauty of the art or the winery’s surrounding landscape – scenic vineyards

which are best enjoyed from a table on winery’s tasting patio.

Mumm Napa Valley is one of California’s premier sparkling wine

producers. The winery and visitors’ center is open daily for tours, tastings

and private events. Visitors’ center hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Mumm Napa Valley Winery is located at 8445 Silverado Trail, Rutherford.

For additional information on the exhibits or the winery, call

(707) 967-7700 or go to the website at www.mummnapa.com.

NAPA VALLEY | WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK

Tasting Room of the Week:

ROMBAUER VINEYARDS

by Michelle J. Baker

‘Tis the season to be jolly, and jolly is

most certainly in style at Rombauer Vineyards

this holiday season. Slip into the

Rombauer tasting room where there’s no

appointment required, sidle up to the bar

and share a toast to the holidays with the

Rombauer staff.

What more fun and festive winery to

punctuate the holidays than with the new

and exclusive Wine and Cheese Pairing at

Rombauer, offered three times every day (11 a.m., 1 and 3 p.m.). Join

the Rombauer crew in the new Joy of Wine Room overlooking the

Napa Valley floor and Mayacamas mountain range and learn how

magical the perfect pairing of wine and cheese can be. The Rombauer

staff serves up a selection of seven artisan cheeses paired with a flight

of the winery’s limited-production proprietary wines, including

Cabernet Sauvignons from Atlas Peak and Stags Leap and the 2004 Le

Meilleur du Chai (“The Best of the Cellar” blend). The Wine and

Cheese Pairing is only $25 per person, with a maximum of eight

guests per seating.

Or if you prefer to hang out in the tasting room, the Current

Release list is sure to please. The tasting kicks off with Rombauer’s

elegant Carneros Merlot, perfect for holiday meals that feature roasted

turkey or a crown roast of pork. The Carneros region enjoys Napa

Valley’s coolest and slowest growing season, allowing this Merlot to

gain great complexity and intensity on the vine. The result is a soft and

38

supple wine with fine tannins and a long

finish. If the main course at your holiday

meal is slow-roasted leg of lamb or prime rib,

a perfect pair is the Rombauer Napa Valley

Cabernet Sauvignon, a rich and full-bodied

wine with lots of black fruit, earth, spice and

a deep, lingering finish.

Rombauer is perhaps best known for its

popular Carneros Chardonnay, a lovely and

lush wine that hits the bullseye every vintage.

The current release 2009 Chardonnay is rich

and delicious, with loads of tropical fruit

flavors and a creamy, vanilla-laden palate. The Rombauer Chardonnay

is so popular that the winery has a separate Chardonnay Wine Club,

in which members receive four bottles of Chardonnay three times per

year. It’s the perfect way to toast good friends and family year-round.

Perhaps the showstopper at Rombauer is the Napa Valley

Zinfandel. The nose of this wine is intoxicating, with heady aromas of

jammy berries leaping out of the glass on the first swirl. This is an

utterly luscious wine, packed with fruit and unabashed in its

Zinfandel joy.

Visit Rombauer Vineyards at 3522 Silverado Trail in between St.

Helena and Calistoga. The tasting room is open for holiday cheer daily

from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. To make an appointment for Rombauer’s

Cheese and Wine Pairing, call 1-800-622-2206 or visit

www.rombauer.com. Follow Rombauer Vineyards on facebook

(RombauerVineyards) and twitter (rombauervino) to keep up with the

winery when you get back home.

SONOMA COUNTY | WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK

Fritz Winery – Beautiful, Friendly, Delicious!

by Sue Straight, Wine Wench

Subterranean, intelligently designed, energy-efficient, beautiful,

friendly, futuristic, quirky and delicious are just some of the adjectives

that describe Fritz Winery. Located in the rugged, hilly fringes

of Sonoma County’s Dry Creek Valley, this winery is simply a “must

stop!”

You’ll enter the winery’s driveway through an elegant white

gateway, drive over a wooden bridge and then meander up a fairly

steep slope. The driveway ends in an oak-shaded parking lot. It’s a

short walk up the hill to the tasting room (handicapped parking is

available right in front of the tasting room) and the views of Dry

Creek Valley are absolutely breathtaking. The landscaping is

minimal and focused on local flora and fauna, with oak and pine

trees shading the surrounding area.

Picnic tables with market umbrellas are scattered about the patio,

inviting guests to linger and enjoy the delicious wines and the

gorgeous scenery. It’s very peaceful on the patio.

The winery itself is a sight to behold. Think hobbit house, crossed

with space station and you’ll start to get the picture. It is a tall futuristic-looking

white structure, which is set into the hillside. It has

rounded archways for the glass doors and windows, which let in

plenty of golden Sonoma County sunshine.

The tasting room is spacious and airy, with a light-colored, woodtopped

tasting bar that spans the back of the room. Above the tasting

bar are framed photographs of the winery during construction in the

1970s – really interesting! There is a good selection of artfully

displayed wine-related gifts for the discriminating shopper,

including logo T-shirts, baby clothing, books, olive oils and chocolates.

Another cool thing Fritz Winery offers is personalized etched

bottles of their wine.

When you’re done browsing, mosey up to the bar and taste a few

wines. There are two wine flights available – the $10 flight offers a

selection of current release wines and the $15 flight offers a selection

of reserve wines that are only available at the winery. Tasting fees are

refundable with purchase.

Fritz Winery was designed to be energy-efficient. It was

constructed on three levels to create a gravity-flow production

system. The crush pad is on the roof. The tasting room is on the first

level below ground with the fermentation tanks. The juice is then sent

to the third level (second underground tier) for barrel aging. All of

this is done using gravity instead of pumps, which is a much more

gentle process for the grapes and finished wine. This process utilizes

the naturally even, cool underground

temperature for optimal processing and

barrel aging of Fritz Winery’s awardwinning

wines.

Let’s talk about the wines. I tasted a few

and they were all excellent. The following

wines were my personal favorites:

2008 Russian River Valley Reserve

Chardonnay, $45: A classic Chardonnay!

One sniff and you know you’re in for

something very, very good! Aromas of

buttered toast, caramel apples, tropical

fruit and baking spices delight the nose and continue as flavors in

the big, creamy mouth. Long, luscious finish.

2007 Russian River Valley Reserve Pinot Noir, $50: Oh! My!

Goodness! What a gorgeous Pinot! It made my knees weak. Mouthwatering

scents of dried rose petals, black cherry, vanilla and spice

delight the nose. The mouthfeel of this wine is silky and sleek and

packed with ripe cherry, cranberry and baking spice flavors, which

linger through the finish.

The tasting room is open daily from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Tours of the cave are avaialable by appointment on Saturday and

Sunday. For more information, email info@fritz.com, call 1-800-

418-9463 or visit their website at www.fritzwinery.com.

HOP KILN WINERY

by Frances Rivetti

Lovers of Russian River Valley wine

country heritage, with its intriguing, storied

past and hand-picked selections of some of

the finest red wines of the celebrated region,

would be wise to make a bee-line to Hop Kiln

Winery’s historic Tasting Room.

The Winery takes its name from California

landmark #893 - a beautifully transformed,

original American Hop Kiln structure dating

back to 1905. Over 40,000 visitors each year

pay homage to the history of the American

West as they savor the tasting room’s captivating

vintages of award-winning wines

alongside an appetizing array of private label

gourmet foods.

Purchased by Westside Grapes in 2004,

the 248-acre ranch had been successfully

turned over to grape farming back in 1975,

some 25 years after hop processing had

ground to a halt. Westside Grapes has taken

its stewardship to amazing levels, realizing its

potential for producing some of the region’s

most exemplary fruit while preserving the

integrity of the property’s history.

It is easy to be transported in time with a

visit to the former Sweet Water Springs Ranch,

as history and legend quite naturally unfold.

48

By the early 1900s, prosperous ranching lands

in the region were populated by a colorful

community of self-reliant pioneers. The most

famous being Bernadette Randall, known as

Big Red for her initials, striking spirit and

flowing red locks. Hops were a major crop in

the area and Big Red is said to have cheered on

the stonemason, Angelo ‘Skinny’ Sodini and

his crew of 25 men who built the magnificent,

three-story Hop Kiln in 1905 in just 35 days.

It is the warm hospitality of the tasting

room’s vintage appeal, coupled with

renowned, artistic proprietary blends and the

winery’s ultra premium label “HKG” that

continues to attract eager, loyal visitors to this

Westside Road, Healdsburg locale.

As with all great, vintage tasting rooms,

Hop Kiln’s hospitality staff provides a truly

unique and genuine experience while tasting

winemaker, Chuck Mansfield’s, meticulously

crafted wines. Always honoring its past, the

newly remodeled tasting room incorporates

native, heritage elements of wood and metal

materials from this historic ranch. HKG

Estate grown offerings are mostly Burgundian:

Gold Medal winning Pinot Noir and

complex Chardonnay. Also available to taste,

daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. (excluding holidays)

are the winery’s inspired varietals such

as Hop Kiln Sauvignon Blanc, aromatic

Grenache and a full-bodied new release of

2008 Malbec.

A secluded picnic area complete with tranquil

rose garden and duck pond provides the

perfect setting to drink in the glorious views

of the region, while enjoying a light lunch or

afternoon nibble of artisan cheeses, breads

and charcuterie, paired with a bottle of estate

grown Pinot Noir or an outstanding proprietary

white blend of newly released 2009

Thousand Flowers. Also newly released is the

sensational 2009 Big Red; also a Hop Kiln

proprietary blend and fanciful holiday pick.

Over 60 locally produced artisan food

products are available for purchase, ranging

from wasabi or sweet garlic mustard, basil

and garlic infused oils, vinegars and vinaigrettes,

pine nut, garlic, anchovy or artichoke

heart pesto’s and a popular lemon zest and

grape seed grill blend.

Hop Kiln Winery also invites you to pay a

visit to its spacious HKG Tasting Room,

located in Glen Ellen, open Friday through

Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Hop Kiln Winery and Tasting Room is

located at 6050 Westside Road, Healdsburg.

For more information, call (707) 433-6491

or email info@hopkilnwinery.com.

SONOMA VALLEY | WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK

Season of the Olive Arrives in the Sonoma Valley

Three-Month Celebration of All Things Olive Returns to Sonoma

The tenth annual Sonoma Valley Olive Season, a celebration of the

olive harvest and an agricultural and epicurean showcase, will take

place December 2010 through February 2011. Encompassing a range

of exceptional events, culinary thrills and Valley-wide promotions –

from the Blessing of the Olives ceremony to the elegant Feast of the

Olive Dinner – the upcoming Season of the Olive promises to transform

the winter months in Sonoma into a celebration of the senses.

The kick off of the olive season began with the traditional Blessing

of the Olives ceremony, set within the historic Mission San Francisco

Solano. Following the initial weekend, key events and promotions are

planned Valley-wide in honor of the three-month celebration. In addition,

local restaurants and lodging properties will offer olive season

packages and promotions, including exclusive olive-inspired menu

items and spa treatments throughout the winter months. Throughout

the Season of the Olive, visitors will have the opportunity to roll up

their sleeves for an olive curing workshop,

attend festive events, such as the

annual Martini Madness competition,

and enjoy an array of activities, from

olive oil tastings and art exhibits to live

music, family activities and food and

wine pairings. A complete list of

events and promotions can be found

at www.olivefestival.com.

Season of the Olive favorites slated

to take place again this season include

the highly-anticipated Feast of the

Olive Dinner on January 22 at

Ramekins Culinary School. This

multi-course, olive-inspired ceremonial

dinner prepared by Sonoma Valley’s finest chefs, is one of the

Season’s anchor events and is a food-lover’s paradise. On January 7,

master martini makers will gather at Saddles Steakhouse at MacArthur

Place Inn & Spa to compete for the best martini at the wildly popular

Martini Madness, where patrons can sample each concoction and

place their votes. Then, from February 19-21, the Season of the Olive

will culminate with the Olive Season Finale Weekend, a magnificent

celebration of special events, dinners and tastings, including VinOlivo,

an epicurean showcase that includes live entertainment, a silent

auction, and a Marketplace highlighting Sonoma Valley wine and olive

oil. The Season of the Olive’s Finale Weekend is a guarantee to

impress even the impossible-to-please foodie.

For a comprehensive calendar of Season of the Olive events, visit

the official website at www.olivefestival.com.

The Sonoma Valley Olive Season, currently in its tenth year, is a

celebration of the senses. Taking place December through February,

SONOMA COUNTY | WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK

Tasting Room of the Week:

ERIC ROSS WINERY

Eric Luse

by Brendan Conroy

In the heart of Glen Ellen lies one of the

most premier small production wineries in

Sonoma Valley. Eric Ross has an annual

production of roughly 3000 cases, but each

bottle is tailored to perfection. In the beginning,

the idea for the winery itself was created

by of all things, photography. The winemaker,

Eric Luse, began his career as a photographer

for the San Francisco Chronicle during the

1980s. During this time, he spent a good

portion of his time with actual vineyard

workers in order to depict daily life of the

laborers as they tend to the needs of the

grapes. Many of the photos within the tasting

room itself tell the stories of the individual

vineyard workers as well as the highs and the

lows of working the land. Seeing their utmost

care and unshakable dedication to the vines

themselves stirred something in Luse. He

decided that he would create a winery that

would share that same philosophy of giving

respect to the fruit itself and nurturing it to its

fullest extent.

In 1993, Eric Ross made its debut.

Focusing on sourcing only the highest of

quality fruit, the quality of the wine is

outstanding. Specializing in numerous

unusual varietals, Eric Ross sets the bar for

unique, complex wine that makes the

consumer want to come back for more. The

Tempranillo (Spanish grape originally from

the Rioja region of Spain) is a passionately

fruit forward wine that rockets across one’s

palate with nuances of plum and an abundant

amount of spice. An ideal pairing for complementing

this wine’s low acidity and high fruit

concentration would be pan-seared swordfish

topped with Moroccan olives. The Pinot Noir

from Saralee’s Vineyard is to die for. The

dynamic, ripe fruit on the front of the palate

leaves the distinct impression of cinnamon

and raspberry with a truly delightful long

finish. Both of these wines are fantastic by

themselves or with holiday dinners so that the

entire family can enjoy the fruits of steadfast

care for the grapes themselves.

Eric Ross also takes well-deserved pride in

its blends. Much like a chef ultilizes various

combinations of food in order to find the best

possible pairing, Eric Ross experiments with

blending different grapes together to create the

most refined wine. Enter the Struttin’ White

and Struttin’ Red. The White is comprised

mostly of Albarino (another grape originally

from Spain and typically a drier style of wine)

with a trace amount of Orange Muscat (which

usually has sweet notes). With hints of lemon,

citrus, and a very long finish, this mix of dry

and sweet makes the palate sing. The Struttin’

Red is a mix of Tempranillo and Garnacha. It

is everything a Spanish style blend should be

with hints of tobacco, cedar, pepper and

chewy tannin. If one is searching for a quality

winery with its primary focus being the depiction

of utmost consideration for the land as

well as producing superb wine, Eric Ross is

the one for you…

Visit the tasting room at 14300 Arnold

Drive, Glen Ellen. For more information, call

(707) 939-8525 or go to www.ericross.com.

Local, Critically Acclaimed Winery

Opens with New Release Wines

Audelssa Estate Winery

opened its new tasting room in

time for the holiday season. The

elegant space is located in the

historic Poppe Building in

“downtown” Glen Ellen.

Designed by co-owner Linda

Brewer and Denise Nelson, the

stylish room occupies 1,000

square feet and provides visitors

with a beautiful setting to sample

Audelssa’s sensational wines.

Leading the list of wines now

available to the public are two

special releases. The 2008

Summit is a Left Bank-inspired

blend of Cabernet Sauvignon,

Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec

and Petite Verdot. It is layered

and complex with a juicy middle,

supple tannins and ample structure

that should age effortlessly

for a decade or more. Also available

to the public for the first

time is the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon

Reserve. The 2007 vintage

is a being hailed as a great one,

especially for Cabernet Sauvignon.

Winemaker Erich Bradley

explained, “The 2007 Cabernet

Reserve is all about texture. It’s

silky with uncommon purity and

depth. It is unquestionably the

most seductive Cabernet Reserve

we have released to date.”

Audelssa makes 13 different

wines, all of which have been

championed by wine critics.

Virtually all of their wines, dating

back to the 2000 vintage have

scored 90 points or higher with

various leading wine critics.

Their focus is on Bordeaux and

Rhône varietals produced with a

distinctive Burgundian flair.

Their fruit is sourced from high

WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK | SONOMA COUNTY

Audelssa Opens Tasting Room in Historic Glen Ellen

mountain vineyards that lend the

wines complex aromas and

flavors while maintaining great

body and depth.

As winner of the San Francisco

Chronicle’s SFGate online

poll as top Sonoma winery, the

new Audelssa tasting room is

sure to please their many fans.

Throughout the holidays,

Audelssa will be donating a

portion of all tasting room

proceeds to CASA (Court

Appointed Special Advocates), a

program assisting abused and

neglected children. They are also

planning to raffle a double

magnum (3 liter) of the 2007

Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve to

raise additional funds for CASA.

The Audelssa tasting room is

open daily from 11 a.m. to 5

p.m. It is located at 13750

Arnold Drive in historic downtown

Glen Ellen. For more information

Recognized Annual Event

from January 21-30

Every January for the past twelve years, Mendocino County in

Northern California has been celebrating locally harvested Dungeness

crab and local wines with a festival that delights foodies and

oenophiles alike. From gourmet, crab-themed dinners in four-star

restaurants, to family-style cioppino feeds, to a wine competition that

showcases the local wines that pair well with crab, to the ever popular

Crab Cake Cook-off featuring local Mendocino chefs, it’s no wonder

this festival was named one of the Top 10 Seafood and Wine Festivals

in the country by Coastal Living magazine.

The 2011 festival takes place from Friday, January 21st through

Sunday, January 30th.

Crab and Wine Days – January 21st and 22nd in Fort Bragg

Mendocino Coast Clinics hosts the two flagship events of the

Crab & Wine Festival. Over the course of two days, visitors can take

part in Crab & Wine Days, held at Pentecost Hall in Fort Bragg,

where spectacular ocean bluffs and majestic redwood forests create

www.WineCountryThisWeek.com

an incredible backdrop for the festivities.

• January 21 - Cioppino Dinner

Family-style dinner features steaming bowls of fresh Cioppino

• January 22 – Crab Cake Cook-Off and Wine Tasting Competition:

The premiere event of the Crab & Wine Festival!

Held under a big tent set up just behind Pentecost Hall, this is

where Mendocino County Chefs and Wineries compete for the

coveted “Professional’s Choice” award (chosen by a panel of

esteemed food, wine & travel editors) and the “People’s Choice”

award (chosen by festival attendees).

Proceeds from the Cioppino Dinner, the Crab Cake Cook-Off and

the Wine Tasting Competition go to the Mendocino Coast Clinics,

a non-profit, board-governed community health center that

provides medical, dental, perinatal and behavioral health care to all

Mendocino Coast residents and visitors, regardless of their ability

to pay; www.mendocinocoastclinics.org or (707) 961-3463.

Other Crab & Wine events are being hosted throughout

Mendocino County for the duration on the festival:

• Three-course Crab Tasting Menu with

Optional Wine-pairings at Rendezvous Inn & Restaurant

• Complimentary Crab Appetizers at many Mendocino Wineries

(and wine tastings are still mostly free!)

• Crab Catching Excursion & Feast Aboard the Rumble Fish,

courtesy of MacCallum House Inn & Restaurant

luxury resorts, rental properties and historic hotels

“Our festival continues to attract people from around the world,”

said Scott Schneider, President of Visit Mendocino County, Inc. “And

it’s a win-win for everyone, as the local chefs and winemakers are able

to showcase their talents, the attendees get to sample an array of fabulous

food and wine creations, and local organizations are able to raise

a substantial amount of money for philanthropic purposes.”

About Mendocino County

tradition of coming together as a community and creating an environment

Vineyard Tours, Tasting and Education

Every Saturday at Murrieta’s Well Winery

Murrieta’s Well Winery recently

announced the commencement of their

regular Saturday vineyard tours and tastings,

now available to the public. Starting at 11

a.m. every Saturday, guests have the opportunity

to explore the winery and surrounding

vineyard grounds while sampling wines and

getting a sense of Murrieta’s Well’s unique and

exceptional terroir.

The tour consists of a morning walk

through different areas of the stunning 92-

acre sustainably farmed estate while learning

more about the concept of terroir and how

the soil, weather, and topography all effect the

cultivation of the vine. Along the way, guests

will taste wines that embody the terroir of the

Livermore Valley. The educational content

will vary as the vines progress through their

seasonal changes. These tours will offer a

unique, first-hand glimpse into the distinctive

practices at Murrieta’s Well, while offering the

community an intimate winery experience.

Tours are available every Saturday at 11

a.m. for $20, $10 for Silver Spur Club

members. To reserve a spot, call Murrieta’s

Well Winery at (925) 456-2395.

About Murrieta’s Well Winery

Murrieta’s Well is an elite Livermore Valley

wine estate defined by its distinctive blended

wines, stunning location, and a rich heritage

that began in California’s Gold Rush era. In

1990, Fourth Generation Winemaker Philip

Wente and Winemaker Sergio Traverso

merged old and new winemaking styles,

reviving the historic winery established by

Livermore Pioneer Louis Mel.

Surrounded by vineyards, the serene,

idyllic location on the Arroyo Mocho has a

sense of timeless romanticism. The old stone

winery building was originally built in the

1880s and is a gorgeous example of early

California architecture. Local timber and

rustic concrete made from gravel gathered

from the nearby Arroyo Mocho Creek were

used in the construction. Combined with

Spanish design influences, the colorful past of

Gold Rush era bandito Joaquin Murrieta, and

ultra-premium wines, Murrieta's Well is a

captivating and unforgettable destination.

Murrieta’s Well flagship wines include

their Red Meritage and White Meritage,

blends of Bordeaux grape varietals, and

Zarzuela, a blend of Spanish and Portuguese

varietals, modeled after the famous Spanish

blends of Ribera del Duero and Rioja. Their

estate, old-vine Zinfandel from the renowned

Raboli Vineyard and small lot Los Tesoros de

Joaquin wines comprise their exclusive portfolio.

Murrieta’s Well Winery and Tasting Room

is located at 3005 Mines Road in Livermore.

WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK | MONTEREY/CENTRAL COAST

Santa Cruz Mountains Great Wine Weekend, Jan. 15-16

Santa Cruz Mountains Winter Passport Program

The Santa Cruz Mountains Winegrowers Association invites you to

take part in the Winter Passport Program. More than fifty Santa Cruz

Mountains wineries – from Ahlgren to Zayante – will open their doors

to Passport Program participants on Saturday, January 15th between

11 a.m. and 5 p.m. Passports, which cost just $40, provide entry into

participating wineries, including many that are not normally open to

the public. Passport holders will be invited to tour the facilities, meet

the winemakers and sample the fruits of their labors – including

special wines poured only for citizens in the Passport Program!

As an added feature to the Passport Program several of Santa Cruz

Mountain’s finest restaurants and wine bars that are offering special

discounts to Passport Holders will be showcased on the day of the

event.

The Passport Program is held on the third Saturday of January,

April, July and November, allowing for visitors to view the vineyards

at every season in the growing cycle. This winter, on January 15th,

begin a new adventure and experience the excellence of the wines

produced in this appellation, by spending a wonderful day at the

wineries and in the company of winemakers.

Santa Cruz Mountains Wines and Passports make wonderful gifts

for all occasions. Many of these award-winning wines can be hard to

find in stores (and of course are not be available there for sampling).

Special prices are also often available during passport. Check the

website for area map and last-minute changes in Passport offerings.

Wine & Crab Taste -Off

Taste wonderful crab dishes paired with luscious local wines. The

Santa Cruz Mountains Winegrowers Association presents the eight

annual Wine & Crab Taste-Off! Four of the finest local restaurants will

be battling it out in hopes of being named “Crab Cook 2010.” Your

help is needed to make the decision, so come and judge for yourself!

All four restaurants will be preparing two crab dishes to satisfy your

appetite on Sunday, January 16th from 2 to 5 p.m. For $49, you are

welcome to take on the challenge of “consumer judge.” Taste food and

wine at two restaurants, of your choice, and let them know what you

think. All ballots will be tallied to determine the “Consumer Choice

Awards” as well as scores from professional judges for the “Judges

Choice Awards.” For an additional $16 you can visit another restaurant

of your choice. Restaurants are still to be determined but will let

you know as soon as they are finalized!

Reservations for both events may be purchased from the Santa Cruz

Mountains Winegrowers office or online. For more information, or to

make reservations, call (831) 685-VINE (8463), go to

www.SCMWA.com and enter promo code GW11 for a $5 off discount

when you attend both events, or email info@scmwa.com for more
