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 rby Len NapolitanoIs it the sulfites in the wines that give me headaches?Sulfites are the reason for mandatory label warnings on winebottles because a small percentage of the US population, a fractionof one percent, suffer an allergic reaction to sulfites, such assneezing or coughing. About ten percent of this small group ofsufferers have a more serious reaction, such as shortness of breath.However, people who get headaches from wine should not automaticallyblame the sulfites. In the majority of cases the cause isprobably something else, such as histamines in the wine. Somepeople take an antihistamine in advance of drinking wine in orderto prevent getting a reaction from the histamines in the wine.Needless to say, the causes of allergic reactions of any kind aredifficult to pin down without a doctor’s assistance and if you sufferany ailment as a result of drinking wine, you should consult with adoctor.If you have a wine allergy you can try narrowing down thecause by first sampling wines made from organically grown grapes,such as Bonterra made by Fetzer, or Sanford from Santa BarbaraCounty, among many others. These wines are made from grapesthat are grown without the use of synthetic chemicals, like pesticides,herbicides and fungicides. If no relief comes from drinkingwine made from organically grown grapes, the next step is to try a100% certified organic wine, which contains a minimal amount ofsulfites that occur naturally in production, and has no sulfitesadded. These wines are commonly found in natural food grocerystores.To be sure, every wine, organic or not, contains some sulfitesbecause sulfites are produced naturally in the process of winemaking. If the total sulfite content is ten parts per million orhigher, however, the government requires a warning label. Winemakersadd more sulfites because they help to preserve the qualityof the wine for long-term shelf life. Therefore, wines that containno added sulfites should be drunk while the wine is young, or elsethe risk of the wine going bad is increased greatly.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 contactwith California winemakers. More information is on his website, www.wineology.com.Send your questions about wine to: wineologist@earthlink.net or by mail to Len Napolitano in care ofWine Country This Week magazine.

WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK | WINE COUNTRY NEWSQuality Wines All Under $25at Wine Garage, Calistogaby Jeffry RossThe Skinny – The Wine Garage is all about the juice. It’s also about having fun –like a kid in a candy store. The Wine Garage is, literally, a former gas station.Todd, the wine buyer, travels far and wide to find top-shelf, affordably pricedwines. Inside, you’ll find more than 200 different labels neatly arranged in caseson the floor and an engaging staff who are friendly, attentive and most importantly,they know their wines.Buzz – Despite its funky space, the Wine Garage is a wine lover’s best friend.Reminiscent of visiting your favorite record store (yes, kids, once upon a time,that’s where you had to buy your music), the fun is going through all the casesand finding something you’ve never heard of. All the wines have been testdriven by the staff, so, whatever you select, you won’t be disappointed.Value – Ultimately, the Wine Garage is about value. It’s no secret that in NapaValley, it’s difficult to score a highly rated red for less than $65, but the WineGarage manages to do it all the time. The staff takes great pride hunting downunusual and lesser-known, limited-production wines and passing their hagglingfinesse on to us.Ten-second summary – Nothing in this hip hideaway is more than $25 (with afew under $15)! The Wine Garage is stocked with premium, small-lot winesthat you won’t find at BevMo, Trader Joe’s or your local wine store (plus, they doa better job storing their wines at the correct temperature).Best bets – In addition to all the labels the Wine Garage represents, they alsoproduce their own lip-smacking blends. My in-house favorites are: 2009 JoyRide White, 2008 Russian River Syrah, 2007 Napa Valley Cabernet, 2008Chihuahua Cabernet and 2006 Hillside Cabernet.Under-the-radar – Go old-school with half-gallon jugs filled while you wait usingtheir specifically designed service station nozzles. Not only are the wines delicious(and affordable), the jug is crazy fun conversation at the table. It’s also acool gift.Secrets – For the next few weeks, receive an additional ten percent off thealready low prices when you purchase six bottles. Twenty percent on a case.Better yet, the Wine Garage has the BEST wine club in the valley – and theyship just about everywhere.Insider – If you’re a serious wino, get on the inside track for ultra exclusive dealsby hooking up with the Wine Garage on Twitter and Facebook (wine clubmembers get first crack to cream-of-the-crop finds).Sign up for our email newsletter at www.WineCountryThisWeek.com11

WINE COUNTRY NEWS | WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEKGrgich Hills Host ‘Buxtehude: Bach’s Inspiration’ ConcertConsidered among the brightest jewels of 17th century chamber musicThe chamber quartet Les Violettes will perform a program of musicby the man who inspired Bach on Monday, May 30, 2011 starting at2pm at Grgich Hills Estate winery in Rutherford, CA.Among the very brightest jewels of 17th century chamber musicshine the works of Dieterich Buxtehude; little wonder that the youngJohann Sebastian Bach said of Buxtehude, “He is the very model of amodern Lübeck organist” (or words to that effect), and went to greatlengths to hear Buxtehude perform. Buxtehude’s sonatas for violin,viola da gamba, and harpsichord rethink the nature of a trio sonata,and his sacred cantatas for voice and instruments are emotionallymoving and rhetoricallypowerful.Les Violettes (CoreyCarleton, soprano, DavidWilson, violin, Colin Shipman,viola da gamba, and VioletGrgich, harpsichord) willperform at Grgich Hills Estate,1829 St. Helena HighwayViolet Grgich will be playing harpsichord(Highway 29) in Rutherford, CA.Cost is $25 general admission, $20 for Grgich Hills wine clubmembers. For reservations, please contact hospitality@grgich.com orcall the winery at 707-963-2784.Grgich Hills Estate was founded in 1977 by Miljenko “Mike”Grgich and Austin Hills after Mike’s Chardonnay outscored the best ofFrance in the now-famous 1976 Paris Tasting.

Oh, and don’t forgetthe Ménage à Trois!The grounds are beautifully landscaped – mounds of lavender andassorted colorful flowers delight the eye and nose and a fountain(which is actually their sign – how cool is that?) burbles away merrily,delighting the ears. Around back is a grassy, tree-shaded picnic area,where visitors are invited to kick off their shoes and relax a while.The visitor’s center is a geodesic dome, with a pentagon shapedtasting bar set up in the middle of the room, so visitors have lots ofspace to belly up to the bar. Directly above the bar, in the center ofthe room, a grape motif stainedglass window shines a rainbow ofcolor down on the happy scene. Amarble topped bar against one wallis used for overflow on busy days,and because of it’s prime location,this visitors center can get very busyat times.

Rich and complex in themouth, with a long, delicious finish.2008 Napa Cellars Zinfandel, Napa Valley ($22): This Zin is spicy,sassy and absolutely enjoyable! It’s what my wine-judging buddiesand I call a “berry bomb.” Blackberry, raspberry and strawberryaromas and flavors abound, enhanced by lots of peppery spice. It isbright and juicy in the mouth, with a mouthwatering finish. You’regoing to want another sip…2009 Napa Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon, Stagecoach Vineyard($48): In a word, delicious!

MankasWoodenRd ValleyS U I S U N V A L L E YChange Things Up From Busy Wine CountryIf this is one of your many visits to the wine country, you are no doubtlooking for something a little different. So why not change things up andtake the road less travelled through Suisun Valley “The Napa Back Road”.We all no doubt have our favorites, but we are always looking to one upour friends back home. Yes, that never ending search for something newand refreshing, but still preserving all that made you first fall in love withthe whole “Wine Country Experience.”If you are staying in Downtown Napa, do you realize you are justapproximately 15 to 20 minutes away from a valley that preserved whatNapa was in the 1960s? However, the wines at such places like VezerFamily Vineyard and the Blue Victorian Winery take advantage of both theold traditions, such as 100% hand punched down wines, along withimplementing the important new techniques learned from those greatCalifornia winemakers over the last 50 years.This Suisun Valley has been a long-time held secret in the winecountry. In fact, many of the locals try to continue this secret, simplybecause it is where they go to still experience those old feelings of daysgone by. Suisun Valley is where you can find wines that would sell forover $150 a bottle at the popular better known tourist destinations inNapa, for $30 to $60. These same wines have 94, 95 and 97 point rankingsand medals from the greatest national and international competitions!Itinerary to impress your guestsLeave your hotel in Napa and arrive at Mankas Corners – a small,country-road village in the center of the vines in Suisun Valley. This 160-year-old Pony Express Station Stop boasts the largest pecan trees in theworld, the Vintage Café, the Vezer Family Tasting room, Italian Deli andGardens, outdoor dining areas, stone winery and country cottages.Taste some of the most unique white wines such as the PortugeseVerdelho that is known as “a white wine for red wine lovers.” Taste NorthCentral Coast’s Best in Class 94 point Zinfandel, the only California“double gold” at the New York International Wine Competition and oneof the top ten-ranked Petite Sirahs in the world called the “La Salette.”After tasting and having a wonderful and refreshingly educationalconversation with one of Vezer’s very own sommaliers, order a panini,cheese tray and hot soup from Tommie at the deli. Enjoy a bottle whileyou wait to be served at your quaint little outdoor garden table.Once you have a little food in your belly, drive a half mile down theroad to the Blue Victorian, where your tasting room manager, Joseph,greets you at the 100-year-old Victorian manor. Once you walk into thequaint parlor, reminiscent of an old Cape Cod sea captain’s bar, you havejust stepped back in time. After tasting some amazing Sauvignon Blanctake a “Trio Amici Tour.” This is a tour that involves walking through theback gardens to the old Victorian stone and timber Barrel Room with ironworks and huge timbers and travertine chandeliers hanging from the40'-high ceilings. Once you get into the room, your personal tour guidetakes you straight to his favorite barrels and starts to serve you a blendtaken from three different barrels, made in front of your very eyes. Haveyour tour guide get you to taste each phase of the blend and see how thewine progresses to its complete blend. He explains the history of thegrapes, the barrels and the Vezer Family and Blue Victorians House styles.Before you leave the Barrel Room, you are tempted as you walk by afew more barrels of Ruby Port and this White Port called the Sophie. Asyou taste these wonderful after dinner wines, you might hear that back inthe Mankas Gardens of Vezer’s, starting at 5 p.m. on the first and the thirdSaturday of the month, there is a live concert of jazz, R&B or classic rockmusic. You can actually have the Vintage Café serve you a hot outdoorgarden dinner of possibly a “Cab and Slab” (Vezer Cabernet and rib eyesteak) all while listening and dancing to some first-class music as the sungoes down in beautiful Suisun Valley.Come make your own dreams come true in Suisun (Sue-soon) Valley“Napa’s Little Sister Sui.”SoscolBig Ranch RdSilverado TrailSilverado TrailMonticello RdNapa121Atlas Peak RdJarvisS U I S U NV A L L E YW I N E R I E SWooden Valley RdAltamuraVineyardsEagle Eye28372912Jameson Canyon Rd80Rock Creek VineyardGreen Valley CellarsMason680Green Valley RdCordeliaRockville RdSuisunValleyBLUE VICTORIANWINERYVEZÉR FAMILY WINERYRockville RdSuisun Valley RdAbernathy RdWaterman Blvd80FairfieldFollow us on Twitter @WineCountryTWSuisun Valley RdDaniel CappWinesGordon Valley RdGardens, Deli & Barista Wooden ValleySuisunWineryWine CoopLedgewoodCreekWinterhawkTenbrinkOliverVEZÉRPrivate Ranch& Tasting RoomBY APPOINTMENT ONLYClayton RdANHEUSER BUSCHBREWERY TOURSJELLY BELLYFACTORY AND TOURS 12Suisun CityMankas Hills Winery

WINE COUNTRY NEWS | WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEKWinemaker Profile:Arger-Martucci VineyardsDr. Kosta ArgerArger-Martucci Vineyards, just south of the classic Wine Countrytown of St. Helena, is a small, family-owned winery where you canenjoy exceptional wines in a relaxed and unpretentious setting.Winery owners Kosta Arger and Rich Martucci first met andbecame close friends through a Reno, NV wine tasting group in the1980s. At the time, Arger was establishing himself as an accomplishedcardiologist and skilled home winemaker, while Martucci wasworking to build the struggling bank he had acquired.Dr. Arger, who learned to make wine in the 1970s from thelegendary Joe Heitz of Heitz Cellars, had always dreamed of starting aNapa Valley winery. In 1998, both families were looking for propertyin the Napa Valley and decided it was the perfect time to partner andstart a winery. The Arger-Martucci partnership is ideal – Rich managesthe financial aspects of the business, while Kosta handles the winemaking.The next generation is also involved full time. Anthony Arger takescare of outside sales and marketing while Vince Martucci is the assistantwinemaker and oversees the tasting room.Still a practicing cardiologist in Reno, Dr. Arger arranges his busyschedule so he can spend weekends, holidays and the harvest in NapaValley. Although he has been making wine for over 35 years and hascrafted many award winning wines, he has never taken a formal winemakingclass. If you’re lucky enough to spend an hour or two withhim, talking about vineyards, winemaking technique and philosophy,his passion for his art of turning top-quality fruit into top quality wine,and tasting some of the results, you will begin to appreciate thepassion he has for what once was a hobby and a dream, before it allbecame a reality.Arger-Martucci’s flagship wine is the much acclaimed Odyssey, agorgeous Bordeaux-style blend. The elegant blend contains CabernetSauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Petite Verdot, all of which aregrown on their estate Odyssey Vineyards. Located on Atlas Peak 1,35030feet above the Valley floor, the vineyards provide what Dr. Argeremphasizes are imperative in quality winemaking – “a consistentsource for the finest Napa Valley fruit.” In addition to this consistentfruit source, he is also of the Old World mindset that red wines shouldnot be released too early. Instead, they should be allowed “sufficientbottle age before release.” As a cardiologist, he knows that “a lot canhappen in five or ten years,” and wants to make sure that when thewines are released, they are “drinkable, enjoyable and ready forconsumption.” With the additional time in the bottle (Arger-Martuccitypically does not release a red wine until five years after its vintagedate), these wines are truly elegant and complex.Accompanying the Odyssey is a refreshing white blend called theIliad. Released for the first time two years ago, the blend, whichcontains Viognier, Sauvignon Blanc, Gewurtraminer and Muscat, hasquickly become one of the winery’s best sellers. In addition to theseproprietary blends, Arger-Martucci produces an array of excellent redwines including Pinot Noir, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, CabernetFranc and Petite Syrah. They also make a small lot of Late HarvestSauvignon Blanc dessert wine called Dulcinea, which is incrediblyreminiscent of excellent Sauternes.The tasting room, tucked behind the crush pad and barrel room, isquaint and picturesque. It boasts a beautiful view of the MayacamasMountains on the western side of the Valley and there’s a poolsidepicnic area, complete with an outdoor gazebo, where guests can tasteand enjoy the scenery away from the crowds.The Arger-Martucci Vineyards tasting room is open every day ofthe week from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. (Friday, Saturday and Sunday until5 p.m.). Appointments are highly encouraged. Private barrel tastingsare also available by appointment. They are located at 1455 InglewoodAvenue in St. Helena.

SONOMA COUNTY | WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEKWine Icon Jess Stonestreet Jackson Passes AwayFounder of Kendall-Jackson winery, industry visionary, thoroughbred ownerJess Stonestreet Jackson, the wine visionary who popularizedChardonnay in America in the early 1980s with his immediatelysuccessfulKendall-Jackson winery and then became a pioneeringarchitect of the ascendant American wine industry, died April 21 at hisGeyserville, home after a long and courageous battle with cancer. Hewas 81.A one-time longshoreman and police officer, who put himselfthrough University of California Berkeley's Boalt Hall law school,Jackson became one of the best-known figures in American viticulture,as Kendall-Jackson became the best-selling Chardonnay in Americafor over two decades.Raised in San Francisco during the Great Depression, Jacksonworked as a farmer, policeman and land-use lawyer. He started theKendall-Jackson wine business with the family’s 1974 purchase of an80-acre pear and walnut orchard in Lakeport that he converted to avineyard. In 1982, he produced his first bottle of wine under theKendall-Jackson label. In 1983, the wine won the first double PlatinumAward ever presented by the American Wine Competition.Kendall-Jackson Wine Estates remains today one of the most awardedwineries in the United States.Jackson's vision and outspoken manner often ran counter toconventional industry practices. When he realized that the quality ofthe French oak barrels used to age his wine was inconsistent, heinvested in his own mill in France to provide barrel staves, andbecame a partner in a cooperage located in Missouri. He created hisown California distribution company to remain free of industryconsolidation there. He was a leader in the sustainable farming movementwithin the wine industry, implementing dozens of environmentally-friendlyfarming innovations throughout the vineyards of JacksonFamily Wines. As a philanthropist he and his wife Barbara Bankequietly donated millions of dollars in support of local and nationalcharitable organizations.Jackson was a founding member of Family Winemakers of California.In 2009, Jackson was inducted into the Vintner’s Hall of Fame.At that time he remarked, “Wine is entirely different from liquor andbeer, and I’d like to see our industry free itself from the images that areused to sell those products. Wine is a part of our cultural heritage. Ithas always been the traditional partner with food. Wine celebratesfriends, family and love – all of the best things in life.“When my family and I founded Kendall-Jackson in 1982, wesimply wanted to create extraordinary wine from California’s best vineyards,”Jackson wrote in his biographical notes. “We grow grapes onour own 14,000 acres of California coastal vineyards. We take the nocompromise,high road approach to quality required to grow ourworld-class grapes and produce acclaimed award-winning wines.“From day one we have been a family-owned and family-run business.It is a distinction that is rapidly becoming a rarity in our industry.Our family culture is built on the time-honored principles of hard48work, integrity, and uncompromising desire for quality and the longtermstewardship of the land.”Among the wines made in the Jackson Family collection areKendall-Jackson Wine Estates, Cambria, Stonestreet, Edmeades, LaCrema, Cardinale, Lokoya, Hartford Family Winery, Verite, Atalon,Carmel Road, Murphy Goode, La Jota, Freemark Abbey, Bryon Estates,Arrowood, all in the U.S.; Chateau Lassegue in France; Tenuta diArceno in Italy; Yangarra in Australia; and Calina in Chile. JacksonFamily Wines is one of California's few remaining family-ownedwinery groups, with family members working full-time in a variety ofpositions.Jackson’s passion for farming and horses led him later in life tothoroughbred breeding and racing. In 2007, he became majoritystakeholder in the racehorse Curlin who then won Horse of the Yearfor two consecutive years (2007 and 2008). The following year,Jackson’s filly, Rachel Alexandra became the first filly to win the PreaknessStakes at Pimlico in 85 years. She also won 2009 Horse of theYear.

By the time May arrives in the Santa Cruz Mountains, the threatof frost has, for the most part, theoretically abated. A big emphasison the “t-word,” as you never know in this ever-hanging world ofweather, whether you are falling on this side of “normal,” or that. Ittakes a farmer to accurately read what the weather gods are tellingus. And, we might forever need to redefine “normal,” so it can bereflective of what actually happens from year to year, instead ofwhat we hold in our fondly fuzzy memory banks.By May, though, the vineyards have become vibrant and confident,with every variety kicked into gear. It’s the high altitude vineyardsthat worry most as we thread our way from careful to obsessive.Still, with all the rain we’ve socked away, there’s a sense ofcautious optimism about vintage 2011 in the land of vines.Generosity Abundant on the SummitThe generous outpouring of support for the “Sip for our Schools”local benefit held by Loma Prieta Winery, which raised over $5k ina two-day period, clearly shows that mountain people understandhow to lend a helping hand. They, along with winery visitors fromnear and far, also demonstrated their global consciousness byhelping Burrell School Vineyards & Winery raise funds for theJapan disaster. A two-week long fund raising drive at the end ofMarch collected tasting fees for the American Red Cross. Clubmembers, who receive complimentary tastings, were asked if they'dlike to contribute.Said Anne Moulton, winery co-owner, “We are so pleased by theresponse we had to this effort. So many club members generouslydonated to the cause, and we are happy to be giving $515 to theAmerican Red Cross Japan Disaster Relief Fund.”Visit MJA’s New Tasting RoomCheck out the newest tasting room on the Summit: MJA Vineyards,a winery sourcing fruit both locally here in the mountains,and from Napa. Located at 24900 Highland Way, their hours areThursday through Sunday, from noon until 5 p.m., (408) 353-6000. The setting is delightfully wooded, as are their wines, andyou’ll want to make a stop at the Summit Store to get some of thosefabulous sandwiches to enjoy as you watch the birds and butterfliesflitting about among the many flowering trees.
