WineologyI 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 Napolitano‘Is it OK to bring my own bottle of wine to a restaurant?’I am often asked whether it is proper to bring a bottle of wine intoa restaurant. I don’t discourage anyone from bringing their ownwine, but only suggest a few guidelines and advice on what to expectwhen you arrive with your bottle. Be aware that some restaurantshave limits regarding customers taking in their own wine and somedo not permit it at all.Aside from high wine list prices being the motivation for takingyour own bottle to dinner, the restaurant wine list that offers a verylimited choice of wines that also provides a reason to bring yourown. Unfortunately, often wine list selections are either lopsidedtoward the mass-produced, popular brands, or else do not offer awide enough variety of wines styles. This is why bringing your ownbottle to the restaurant sometimes makes sense. Here is how Iapproach it:If I am uncertain about a particular restaurant’s policy I will callin advance to ask about bringing my own bottle. I respect a restaurantthat does not permit private party wine, and this is more palatableto me if their wine list is extensive, diverse and reasonablypriced.I will only bring wine that is special – not an ordinary supermarketwine that can be found on virtually any restaurant wine list.I do not want to appear as if I am competing with the restaurant bybringing in a bottle of something they already have on their list. Ofcourse, it isn’t always possible to know this in advance so either I askin advance or I reduce the chance of that conflict by selecting anolder vintage bottle from my collection. On the other hand, forrestaurants that have small and very limited wine lists, bringing inan ordinary wine may not be a sensitive issueI expect to pay a fee to the restaurant, known as a corkage fee, toopen and serve my bottle. This fee usually ranges from $5 to $25,depending on the restaurant. Some restaurants may waive this feefor their regular customers or if you also order a bottle off their winelist.I always offer a taste of my wine to my server, host or sommelier.I do this simply as a courtesy and it is always appreciated, especiallyif I have brought an older wine, or one from an unknown, highqualityproducer.I tip my server based upon the dinner price and the approximatevalue of the wine that I brought.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 frequentcontact with California winemakers.

WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK | WINE COUNTRY NEWSWine Garage Offers Exclusive Wine Clubwww.WineCountryThisWeek.comHidden next to a dilapidated ’40s era former filling station onHighway 29 in Calistoga, lies the Wine Garage. A unique wine shopin Napa Valley that retails all wine in the store under $25. Soundcrazy? Its true. And the proprietors Todd and Joy Miller, have hit ona niche in the Valley that had been very missed by the locals here.“There are a lot of winemakers here that can’t afford to drink the winethey make, says Miller. “That’s crazy, yes, but who can afford to drinka $65 bottle with dinner every night?”Many people miss The Wine Garage on the first try upvalley, butthe search is well worth it. Miller stocks wine from all of California’swine-growing regions including fifty Napa selections and 40 fromSonoma County. When he first sought out buying the initial inventory,“I enlisted a local farmer buddy and his 15-foot box van and offwe went all over California hunting down the deals. Itried to seek out the small producers who didn’t havedistributers so I could pass the savings on to mycustomers.“ And Miller did just that. His store is stockedwith high-quality juice all under $25 and all are unique.Most labels in the shop are unrecognizable - but all passthe same test; everything passes over Miller’s lips beforehe 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 atthe store, and maybe I will crawl in bed by 3 a.m. Needlessto say my buddy bowed out of the deal after theirsecond trip. I initially recruited him on a ‘hey lets go wine tasting inSanta 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 uniqueability to hear a verbal description of a customers favorite wine andtranslate that into a recommendation for sometimes a third of the cost.“I have people all over the country that use me as their local wineshop. I ship right to their door - and the cost of the shipping is a dropin the bucket compared to what they save on the cost of the wine.”Miller gets deals on Napa wine too. “I have winemakers from smallwineries stop in every week saying ‘I have something that will fit intothe store,’ if they only have 15 or 25 cases of an end-of-vintage wine- I am the perfect outlet for them.”The Wine Garage offers a wine club, and much like their uniqueapproach to wine retailing, this club is very special. Unlike mostclubs offered by wineries that send out the same old two bottles everyother month or so, Miller has put together three different clubs thatinclude six different offerings. The consumer has a choice of: all red,half white and half red, or “Intense Red.” The first two clubs includes3 bottles $15 and under, and three bottles $15 and over, for anaverage of $100. The Intense Red club includes wines that are typically$20 to $25 bottles that are super extracted, fruit bombs that willturn your teeth purple and have a sixty-second finish. There is nocharge to join. All you do is pay whatever the wine costs, less a tenpercentdiscount. Any re-orders of club wines are alsodiscounted. You can cancel whenever you wish as long asit is 30 days before the next club ships.As a perk to club members, Miller will alert them toexclusive deals he finds along his wine hunting trips.When an incredible opportunity comes his way, like lastyear when he found a ‘95 Napa Cabernet grown onHowell Mountain that he sold for $14.99, Miller willemail all the club members and give them the first shot at snapping itup. He won’t even put those wines on the floor until the clubmembers have 30 days to buy it all. Then the general public gets theiropportunity to grab the awesome wine deal - that is, if there is any left.Need a personal wine shopper looking out for deals for you thatlives right in the Napa Valley? Join The Wine Garage Wine Club andstock up your cellar the easy (and inexpensive) way.You can find the Wine Garage at 1020 Foothill Blvd (Highway 29) inCalistoga.

WINE COUNTRY NEWS | WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEKSCHUG CARNEROS ESTATE WINERYFounded by Pioneering Winemaker Walter Schug, Celebrates 30th AnniversaryFamily-owned winery in Sonoma County’s Carneros Appellationmarks milestone with first-ever estate grown Pinot Noir –looks toward the future with plans to go 100 percent solar by year’s endSchug Carneros Estate Winery – founded in 1980 by husband andwife, Walter and Gertrud Schug – marks its 30th anniversary this year.To celebrate, the winery will release its first-ever estate grown PinotNoir this holiday season and will break ground on a solar array toproduce 100 percent of the winery’s electricity needs.Walter Schug brought his life’s work to California in 1961, establishinghis reputation during his tenure as winemaker for JosephPhelps Vineyards from 1973 to 1983, where he made California’s firstproprietary Bordeaux-style blend, Insignia, and legendary vineyarddesignatedCabernets from Bacchus and Eisele Vineyards.Walter Schug also made Pinot Noir for Joseph Phelps, and whenthe winery ended production of the varietal in 1979, Mr. Phelpsallowed him to continue to produce Pinot Noir under his own label.Schug spent three more years as winemaster at Joseph Phelps beforemaking the decision to devote himself full-time to his own wine brand.From the beginning, Walter Schug recognized the Carneros region’ssuitability for the cool climate Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in whichthe winery specializes. “Making wine, particularly Pinot Noir, has beenmy chosen craft since my upbringing in Germany, where my fatherproduced Pinot Noir on the Staatsweingut Assmannshausen,” saidWalter. “To have merged my roots in Europe with my life’s work inCalifornia and reached this milestone is very gratifying.”“I have a deep respect and admiration for my parents’ legacy ofwork,” said Axel Schug, managing partner of the family’s winery. “Aswe mark this anniversary, our goal remains the same as in the beginning– to produce the finest wines that reflect the terroir of Sonoma18and embody the elegance and balance of European-inspired winemaking.”In addition to Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, Schug Carneros Estateproduces Cabernet, Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc. Beyond its 42-acreestate vineyards, the winery sources grapes from several of SonomaCounty’s premier winegrape growers. Schug wines are available at finewine shops and groceries nationwide and direct from the winery. Theyare also available in 12 foreign countries.About Schug Carneros Estate WinerySchug Carneros Estate Winery is the showcase and lifelong dreamof one of California’s most celebrated winemakers, Walter Schug.Drawing on his extensive experience in the production of fine winesin Europe and California, Walter established his own brand with hiswife Gertrud in 1980. Focusing on grapes grown in the cool, marineclimate of the Carneros Appellation, he eventually built a new wineryin 1990 with emphasis on Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, which hadalways been close to his heart.In 1995, Sonoma-born winemaker Michael Cox came on board atSchug as assistant winemaker. Trained in Enology at UC Davis, Mikewas promoted to winemaker in 1996 and placed in charge of day-todaywinemaking activities, a position he continues to hold. Today,Walter holds the title of winemaster emeritus and uses his experienceof more than half a century of harvests to provide guidance to theteam.Surrounded by estate vineyards, Schug Carneros Estate Winery liessheltered in a hillside five miles south of the historic town of Sonoma.Located just north of the San Francisco Bay, the winery boastssweeping views of the Carneros region and Sonoma Valley.

WINERY FEATURE | WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEKDUTCH HENRY WINERYMore fun than any one person should beallowed – so take some friends with you!by Nan ReileyNapa Valley is home to hundreds ofwineries. Students of architecture can have awonderful time admiring the temples andpalaces that house some of these wineries.Students of having a good time and tastingsome great wine are more likely to head forDutch Henry Winery, located on the nongridlockedSilverado Trail at the far northeasternedge of the valley. A palace it isn’t: it’smore like a big barn that houses both tastingroom and winemaking facility.In keeping with the free-wheeling spirit ofthe place, Dutch Henry employees have beenknown to dress up as fun-loving, lovableoutlaws from the early days of Napa Valley,when Dutch Henry, a real person and probablehorse thief, was roaming the vicinity.Even in their usual civvies, the Dutch Henryfolks are laid-back, friendly non-conformistswho are totally serious about only one thing– making fine wine.Well, okay, they are serious about somethingelse, too – sustainable farming in aneco-friendly environment. The winery takesits fruit from certified organic vineyards andemploys organic winemaking practices aswell. It is 100% solar powered, usuallyreturning about 15% to the grid. All wastematerial is either recycled or composted.“We like to have fun and kid around here,”says Gary Koehler, marketing man for thewinery, “but we are very sensitive to the needfor running an environmentally responsibleshow.”Dutch Henry is owned by Less and MaggieChafen and their winemaker son, Scott.Less, a radiologist and medical researcher,is often to be found pouring wine on thepremises. Wife Maggie is also the owner ofDottie Doolittle, a well-known San Franciscochildren’s clothing store. Scott has masteredevery production role a winery can offer, fromcellar rat and forklift driver to landscaper andoffice manager. Winemaker at last, he cannow concentrate on his passion for fine wineby exercising his personal philosophy that thebest wines are made in the vineyard, not inthe winery. “That’s where all the secrets are,”says Scott. “My job is just to bring out the bestthat is already in the fruit.”Established in 1992, the winery is a verysmall-production (only about 6,000 cases ayear) enterprise that specializes in makingwine from vineyards that reflect Napa’s bestsoil and climate for each grape variety. Offeringsinclude Sauvignon Blanc, CabernetSauvignon, Syrah, Merlot and Zinfandel. PlusArgos, a rich red Bordeaux blend, and a NapaValley Rosé composed of Cabernet Franc andMalbec, perfect for spring and summer enjoyment.And the best – or at least most fun –place to try these wines is at the winery itself.You’ll drive (or bike) into Dutch Henryalong a lane lined with bushy olive trees, pastraised vegetable beds with giant artichokesand end at a broad, shady lawn under oaktrees with picnic tables and bocce ball court.The large, barn-like structure has a colorfultiled image of Bacchus outside the huge doorsopening to the rustic tasting room. A fewwine country historic artifacts, tables andbarrels, serve as the tasting bar. Here you canrelax and sip a refreshingly crisp SauvignonBlanc, a spicy, jammy Zinfandel from thevineyards of Rutherford and the other DutchHenry wines. It’s a good idea to find yourfavorite and then take a bottle outside toenjoy with a picnic lunch under the oak trees.But before you do, be sure to sample theestate-grown olive oil and Cabernet Francvinegar. Here are two good wine countrysouvenirs that are easy – and delicious – tocarry home with you.20 www.WineCountryThisWeek.com

Perfect Pairs byMillie HowieAcacia Vineyard 2008 Lone TreePinot Noir Perfectly Paired withChicken SaltimboccaSaltimbocca, a tempting and tasty dish that is quick and easy toprepare is traditionally made by pounding fresh sage leaves and aslice of prosciutto into an already finely sliced piece of veal. Theslices are then fried quickly in butter before being braised in wine.The term “veal” is generally used to describe meat from a youngcalf, with firm, delicately textured flesh, creamy-white with a palepinkish tinge. The delicate flavor and fine texture of veal haveappealed to diners for centuries.Saltimbocca casually translates to mean “jump in the mouth,”which this dish is sure to do as each tender meat strip disappears.The dish has also been described as a really quick dish that tastes asif it were prepared for a royal banquet. Because veal is not alwayscommonly available, this recipe, shared by Acacia Winery ChefKevin Simonson, is an American twist on an Italian classic. It isunique in that the meat used is the more-available tender, youngskinless and boneless chicken thighs that are quickly sautéed withsage and proscuitto, then dressed with a tangy cranberry Pinot Noirsauce.The wine used in the sauce, the 2008 Lone Tree Pinot Noir wastaste-tested alongside the saltimbocca by winemaker Matthew Glynnand chef Simonson who agreed the match between the earthy andherbal complexities of the wine’s dense, rich berry flavors andaromas were exactly right. Their only regret is that only 687 cases ofthis extremely fragrant and rich Pinot Noir were produced and theywill disappear quickly. It might be wise to add a case or two to yourcellar, particularly since Matthew predicts that the Lone Tree PinotNoir will continue to improve through at least the year 2014.SALTIMBOCCAwith a Pinot Noir Cranberry SauceAcacia Vineyard Chef Kevin Simonson Serves 4• 8 chicken thighsskinless and boneless with fat trimmed off• 8 slices prosciutto, about 1/4 pound• 16 fresh sage leaves• 16 toothpicks• 2 tablespoons butter• 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil• 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt• 2 tablespoons shallot, chopped• 1 cup dried cranberries• 1-1/2 cups Pinot Noir• 3 tablespoons butter• Salt and pepper, to tasteLay chicken thighs flat, skin side down, on a sanitized worksurface.

WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEKMichael Mondavi’s Folio Winemakers’ StudioThe name Mondavi is synonymous with wine in America. In theMichael Mondavi family (he is the eldest son of the late RobertMondavi) that equates to four generations of winemaking. This is nowthe solid heritage that is the foundation of the Folio WinemakersStudio on Dealy Lane in the Carneros region of southern Napa County,right on the Napa/Sonoma County line.Folio is a venture of Michael Mondavi and his family: his wife Isabel,daughter Dina and son Rob. The Winemakers’ Studio serves as the basefor Folio’s locally produced wines. Their labels include Isabel Mondavi,Medusa, Oberon, Hangtime, Oberon Emblem and Spellbound.Hangtime, which focuses on Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from theCentral Coast, now has added to its lineup aCarneros Estate Pinot Noir from the Gallery Vineyardthat surrounds the Folio Taste Gallery. Hangtimealso features a new varietal: a Syrah from theMounts Vineyard in Dry Creek Valley.Inspired by Isabel Mondavi, the Isabel Mondavilabel features wines that are made the way that shemost enjoys. These include a Sonoma CountyChardonnay, a Pinot Noir and a refreshingly dryRosé that is perfect now that warm weather hasarrived and summer picnics are clearly on thehorizonZinfandel is the varietal that Medusa concentrateson. The coveted Old Vine Zinfandel to beexact, from the Creekside and Lover’s Lane Vineyards.There is even a much-coveted ZinPort that simply has to beexperienced.The Spellbound wines feature a very food-friendly Chardonnay, aPetite Sirah Reserve, Petite Sirah, and an off-dry Riesling that simplycries out for fresh fruit or spicy food such as Thai or Chinese, or evenbetter I think, Vietnamese. These are well-crafted wines for daily (ifyou desire) consumption.The wines of Oberon include a serious Napa Valley CabernetSauvignon and Merlot, both well-priced, as well as a fruit-filled SauvignonBlanc. There is also the Hillside Reserve Napa Valley CabernetSauvignon.“The big thing we have is the variety of wines at Folio, and the factthat it is a Michael Mondavi family venture,” said the affable MichaelAbernathy, Taste Gallery Manager and a partner in the Folio Fine WinePartners venture. “We have long-term relationships with vineyardowners and managers in Napa and Sonoma counties, and throughoutCalifornia. That is invaluable. That, and the hands-on involvement ofMichael Mondavi.“Here we focus on making great wines that we enjoy drinking, butthey are also wines that we love sharing with family and friends. Andof course with those people who come out here to our tasting room.”And quite a pleasant trip it is. The tasting room is surrounded byvineyards in an area that is, to be conservative, almost all vineyardsMichael Mondavi Familywith a bit of pastureland and open space thrownin. “We’re off the main highway, in real winecountry, and we don’t have – and don’t want tohave – a big, showy winery and barrel room,”Abernathy adds.What they do have is a tasting room you willnot want to leave, because of the space, thesetting, the climate, the friendly staff, the wines,the views and the list goes on.The fog that rolls in from San Pablo Bay just afew miles away results in cool year-round temperatures.In the tasting room, which looks most likea thoughtfully restored farmhouse, there are lightwalls, plenty of natural light year round, lots of polished wood and anicely proportioned tasting bar backed up by a large stained-glasswindow. There is a country tile floor and a fireplace at one end of theroom further softens the open two-storied space. Behind this isanother airy room that opens onto a porch that stretches the width ofthe building and looks out over the hills and vineyards, and off in thedistance on a clear day you can see Mount Diablo. With its comfortableseating it is the perfect spot to enjoy the wines of Folio.During crush – as harvest is known here – the seating on thecovered front porch is the place to be to catch the oft-times hectic andalways fascinating action that defines that season of winemaking.The tasting room offers two different tasting menus: the GalleryTasting has a selection of good, honest wines, and visitors can pick sixfor $10. The Artisan Tasting includes single-vineyard and reservewines, and visitors can pick half-a-dozen for $20.The Folio Winemakers’ Studio is located at 1285 Dealy Lane inNapa, which is just off Carneros Highway and Old Sonoma Road.They are open from noon until 5 p.m., (and closed Wednesdays andThursdays until May).

The Napa Back RoadThe Timeless Bounty of the Suisun Valleyby Charles NeaveFirst, foremost and always, the Suisun Valley in Solano County just25 minutes from Napa, has its roots – often quite literally – in the businessand passion of agriculture. And nowhere is that more evidentthan in the rich earth and thriving vineyards and farms of the SuisunValley, the stretch of land that runs to the west of Fairfield and Interstate80, and borders the county of Napa on two sides.Perfectly situated between a pair of coastal mountain ranges, theMount George Range on the west and the Vaca Mountains to the east,this verdant six by two mile valley sits within the Coastal climateregion. It is also an area where fog rarely visits, though it is not far fromboth the Sacramento River delta and San Francisco’s San Pablo Bay.Set within this compact area are more than 10,000 acres of richfarmland, almost a third of them planted to the grapes that helpsupply the area’s flourishing wineries, and many with a more familiarNapa Valley label. This region is part of the North Coast Appellation,a district famous for what is known as “ultra-premium” fruit, which inthe case of wine lovers everywhere means wine grapes, planted to astaggering number of both familiar and rare varieties.If you look at a map of where many growers in Napa County andbeyond source their grapes or own vineyards, you will be surprised athow many have vineyard holdings here. This is in addition to thedozen or so wineries that call the Suisun Valley their home, and bothmake, age, bottle and market their wines here. Many also have theirown tasting rooms, and during the year hold – both individually andcollectively – special events to lure those who appreciate wine to theircellar doors.The Suisun Valley is also dotted with farm stands and workingfarms that welcome visitors.

NAPA VALLEY | WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEKTasting Room of the Week:BENESSERE VINEYARDSLa Dolce Vita in Napa Valleyby Nan ReileyIf an appreciation of good wine, good food andthe good life is a component of IQ, then the Italiansare geniuses. Share the dolce vita on your next tripto wine country with a visit to Benessere Vineyards,where classic Italian grape varieties have found theirperfect home in Napa Valley. Established by theBenish family in 1994, the winery aims to produceestate-grown Italian-inspired wines in small quantitiesand of high quality. Its very name, “Benessere”means “well-being” or “prosperity” in Italian, and asense of well-being is certainly what visitors canexpect here.Located just a few miles north of the fashionable town of St. Helena,Benessere Vineyards lies at the end of a meandering lane that stops atthe banks of the Napa River.A grouping of sunny yellow buildings houses both Benessere’sproduction facility and tasting room. A walkway to the tasting room islined with fragrant thyme bushes and climbing roses that arehumming with the contented buzzing of honey bees. A trellised patiowith delicate wrought iron tables and chairs provides shade and aperfect place to sip wine and enjoy a picnic luncheon. Mellow windchimes and muted operatic music add to the feeling of relaxation andcontentment.Inside the tasting room, you’ll feel like a guest invited into a friend’shome. The staff offers low-key, personal attention to visitors, and theywill guide you through the array of fine Italian varietiesavailable for tasting. Choose from Pinot Grigio (fromthe cool-climate Carneros and the only wine notestate-grown), Sangiovese, old-vine Zinfandel, MuscatCanelli and a special proprietary red wine called“Phenomenon,” a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon,Sangiovese, Merlot and Syrah. Made in the style of thefamous Italian “super-Tuscans,” it is truly a “super-Napan” collectible. And with summer fastapproaching, you should also try Benessere’s Rosato ofSangiovese, a delicious rosé wine that is perfect forsummer lunches on the patio.Winemaker Jack Stuart, a fifth-generation Californian,has had the benefit of famed Italian wineconsultant Alberto Antonini, who guided the winery atits beginning with advice on selecting the best clones and choosing thebest vineyard sites for each grape variety. Today, Jack’s mission is tokeep Benessere’s wine style true to the highest standards of Italianclassics. Judging from the bountiful display of award ribbons andmedals in the tasting room, Benessere is doing just that.Benessere Vineyards is located at 1010 Big Tree Road, just off Hwy.29 and north of St. Helena. The tasting room is open daily, except formajor holidays, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.Tasting fee is $15 per guest, except for wine club members, whocan enjoy a free tasting for four.

Arroyo Dr.West St.Tulocay St.NAPA VALLEY | WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEKDon’t Miss Judd’s Enormous Wine Show!by Judd Finkelstein, Judd’s Hill Winery“Hooray for Hollywood!” This optimistic tune jangled enthusiasticallyinside my young head as I hit tinseltown, armed with ambitionand a degree in television production looking to make my markin the movies. I worked steadily on several independent and bigstudio films, and although the artistic aspect of filmmaking wasthrilling, it became apparent to me that the industry as a whole wasnot suiting me, the purple-footed quiet kid from the Napa Countycountryside. A whole new appreciation for the world of wine wasinstilled in me and I returned to the family biz.That was a dozen years ago, and while facets of the LosAngeles lifestyle (ethnic food eatin’, beach bummin’,jazz clubbin’) still beckon me back southward nowand again, I couldn’t be happier being back home inNapa Valley making wine here at Judd’s Hill.With that said, there’s been a part of me thatmissed the creative filmmaking that had been thefocus of my collegiate training. This past year, Idecided it was time to merge my former and currentcareer and launched a series of videos called “Judd’s EnormousWine Show.” They’re off-beat vignettes that look at the worldof wine through my somewhat foggy goggles. It’s been a real blastwriting and producing again while keeping wine as the center ofattention. The show has found me lampooning wine snobbery,exploring winemaking as art and even led me back to Hollywood toshoot a Los Angeles themed mini-series there.While the “Enormous Wine Show” has been an underground hit,enter StlementsX Winery& AmicusCalistoga AveFranklin StFranklin StRandolph StArroyo Dr.Randolph StWineries of Napa ValleyTown CenterCejaOlabisi/Trahan WineryRandolph StCoombs StStonehedgeWineryVintners CollectiveFirst St.Second St.Brown StThird St.Fourth StFifth StMain St.Main St.Clinton St.Pearl St.BackRoomWinesBounty HunterRare Wine Co.Caymus St.Ubuntu RestaurantCOLE’S CHOP HOUSECELADONSilo’s Jazz Club & Wine BarNapa General StoreAngeleSoscol AveMasonTASTE AT OXBOWMAHONEY VINEYARDS/WATERSTONEMC KINSTRY(Oxbow Public Market)Oxbow Wine MerchantGustavoToFOLIOThraceJV WineENOTECA& SpiritsThird St.Uncorkedat OxbowD O W N T O W NN A P Ait’s now time tobring things outinto thelight.

Somewhat of a spin-offof the previous show, “WineBooty” takes the character ofCaptain Whylee Raven, theJudd’s Hill wine pirate, andintroduces him as a cellarsquatter who offers me the useof his lair as a TV studio inexchange for being able to keephis abode at the winery. In thisnautical setting, I interview luminariesof the wine world inunscripted and unusualsegments that go beyond thetypical wine tasting shows. Visitorsin our tasting room haveeven been getting in on the act!Yes, fun is a most importantpart of the “routine” here, but Ido take winemaking very seriouslyand continue to craftsmall-production, hand-made,premium wines that have beenthe signature of our family forover 30 years.

SONOMA COUNTY | WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEKPopular Solitude Chardonnay Now Available at Sonoma EnotecaWhether you’re a die-hard Solitude Chardonnay fan or you’re newto this elegant, beautiful wine, you have reason to rejoice. Solitude isback. Rediscover this popular and much-sought-after classic. Formore than twenty years, the Solitude brand has had a majorfollowing. After a brief hiatus, this rich, full-bodied Chardonnayis available once again. Look for it at Sonoma Enoteca on thehistoric Sonoma Plaza.Walter Dreyer, founder of Dreyer Family Wines, was thrilledto share the circumstances that led to the re-emergence of Solitude.“Bringing Solitude back is especially wonderful forSonoma. The grapes come from the Carneros appellationgrown just down the road from the Sonoma Enoteca TastingRoom. The grapes are grown on south Broadway in Sonomaon the famed Sangiacomo Family Vineyards. The Sangiacomofamily has been farming in the Carneros area since1927. They are now transitioning into the third generationmanagers as growers of world class Chardonnay inthe Sonoma Carneros appellation.”Solitude founder and winemaker Richard Litschcontinues to bring his expertise to the brand. Walterexplained, “We were aware of Solitude as a wine with aloyal following and a very high reputation after being inthe market for twenty years.”That stellar reputation was no doubt earned throughdedication to bringing out the best in this wine. This veryrich, complex Chardonnay uses French oak barrels forfull-flavored elegance. Carneros Chardonnay has receivedworldwide recognition. Quality wine grapes are essentialto producing quality wines.Solitude Chardonnay is barrel fermented in French oak, utilizingBurgundian yeast strains. Malolactic fermentation, yeast contact andstirring occurs during the seven months of oak aging. TraditionalBurgundian techniques combined with California cellar practicesproduces the ultra-premium Chardonnay that is consistently markedwith high quality and value.This 2008 vintage exemplifies the style of wine achieved at Solitude.Layers of oak complement the tropical fruit flavors of theCarneros appellation. The wine is dry, full and very rich but retainsrefreshing acidity to keep the wine well balanced. The traditionalBurgundian techniques of barrel fermentation, lees stirring and 100%malolactic fermentation increase complexity and richness. The winedrinks beautifully in its youth and will gain aromatic and flavorcomplexity with additional age.Jonathan Dreyer, general manager of Dreyer Family Wines, ispleased to add Solitude to the family’s portfolio of wines whichincludes Seabiscuit Ranch, Compass, Il Cuore “The Heart” and DreyerSonoma. “We have deep roots in Sonoma County and have greatconfidence in the future for Sonoma and Carneros wines.” All of theDreyer Family Wines are available at Sonoma Enoteca at 35 East Napa52Street at First Street East in Sonoma.The Dreyer family has been involved in California agriculture forfifty years growing grapes, olives, tree fruit, cotton and tomatoes.The Dreyers branched into the premium wine grape business withthe purchase of Grand Cru Vineyards in Glen Ellen, SonomaValley, California in 1980. The family sold this brand to anotherwinery but continues to produce high quality and high valuewines under its other brands.Walter Dreyer has extensive experience in the consumer foodproducts industry managing Oroweat Foods for over thirtyyears. He has served as president of the Sonoma CountyWineries Association, the Sonoma Valley Vintners Association,and has served as a director of the Wine Institute.Jonathan Dreyer is general manager of the wine andgrape operations for Dreyer Family Wines. In addition toworking sales and marketing for the family winery, hereceived a degree from the University of California Davisafter studying viticulture and enology and agriculturaleconomics.Look for Dreyer Family Wines at Sonoma Enotecaalong with ten other boutique wineries including FaveroVineyards, Brutocao Cellars, Manzanita Creek, Trios,Madrone Ridge and the Rose Group featuring GrieveSauvignon Blanc, H Pinot Noir and Double Eagle Merlot.Sonoma Enoteca also features olive oil and balsamicvinegar tastings along with wine sales, wine accessories,books and home furnishings.Visit Sonoma-Enoteca at 35 East Napa Street, open11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday through Monday.
