INTELLIGENCE fOR THE WINE CONSUMER by Len Napolitano

What is organic wine?


Someone I know, who has not consumed red wine in years because it gave her headaches, has joyfully started drinking red wine once again. The cure, she said, was organic wine. But when she explained to me that the wine contained no sulfites, and, thus, was the reason for her pain-free sipping, I had to politely correct her. Organic wines technically still contain some sulfites, however, at much lower levels than non-organic wines. In organic wine, there are no additional sulfites beyond what occurs naturally during normal fermentation of grapes. However, in the vast majority of wines, more sulfites are added because they are necessary to preserve the flavor and integrity of the wine throughout its shelf life. But there was still another correction that I had to make after I read the label of the bottle she was talking about. It turned out that the wine was not really 100% organic, but instead made from organically grown grapes. These are two very distinct categories. Organic wine certification requires years of compliance with certain standards in growing and making wine. Then an independent certifying organization audits and qualifies a vineyard and winery on its soil management, record keeping and other ecologically friendly practices that meet strict standards set by the US Department of Agriculture. For example, the producer must not use chemicals in the vineyard, such as herbicides, fungicides and pesticides and, most importantly, must not introduce additional sulfites into the winemaking process. Therefore, a wine label is permitted to state that the bottle contains organic wine if two conditions are met: the wines grapes were grown organically and the total amount of sulfites is below the government limit. On the other hand, if grapes were grown organically, but the level of combined sulfites, both naturally occurring and added, are higher than government limits, the label is only permitted to state that the wine was made from organically grown grapes, if the producer chooses to say so at all. (It is not a requirement to mention whether grapes were grown organically or not.) Wine made from organically grown grapes is not exactly the same as organic wine but it might be enough to make a difference to some people who have allergies. Unless a doctor is consulted, it is impossible to know the true reason for one wine being a headache wine and another being a headache-free wine. But trying organic wines, or at least wine made from organically grown grapes, can be a step toward minimizing, and maybe avoiding side effects that come from drinking wine. Just remember that the shelf life is limited with 100% organic wines, so it is not recommended that you buy these wines for long-term aging in your home wine cellar. Also bear in mind that a winery is free to practice organic farming methods without acquiring certification, or even mentioning it on the wines label. If you are in search of organic wine or wine made from organically grown grapes, feel free to investigate your favorite wine brands to see if any of their vineyards are farmed organically and what specific wines are made using those vineyards.

The Past Is Their Future
BY MIKE HYLAND

BUENA VISTA WINERY Open Daily from 10 am to 5 pm 18000 Old Winery Road Sonoma, CA 95476 1-800-926-1266 www.buenavistawinery.com

In 2011, Buena Vista Winery, the oldest premium winery in California, became a part of Boisset Family Estates, a well-renowned and charismatic family with a collection of historic wineries in Italy, California and Canada with roots in Burgundy, France. The family, led in the United States by Jean-Charles Boisset, possesses a true love and respect for Buena Vista and its unrivaled heritage, authentic roots, colorful history and of course, great wines. Boisset is passionately committed to his partnership with the Count, to carry on the vision and legacy that the winerys founder, Agoston Haraszthy, the self-proclaimed Count of Buena Vista, first created on the property almost 160 years ago. To that end, restoration of of the original and historic Champagne Cellar began shortly after Jean-Charles took over as owner. The entire restoration project is a two- to three-year process with the first phase nearing completion this month, and it wont be long before wine will once again be made in the cellars. Starting September 1st, , the historic Champagne Cellars will host guided cave tours and barrel tasting, as was done 20 years agao before the building was closed to the public. . The by reservation tours and tastings will take place seven days per week during September and October and Friday through Sunday during the off season. You can see pick ax marks on the cave walls left by the original Chinese workers back in the 1860s, says Tom Blackwood, director of retail operations for Buena Vista Winery We didntont want to lose that, as we felt it was essential to maintain the original look and feel of how it was in the 1860s and how it looks now in 2012. It is exciting to be back into the caves where it all began. Buena Vista suffered earthquake damage to the Cellar Building in 1906 and again in 1989. I never thought I would see the Champagne Cellars restored and used again, said Tom Blackwood, But the Boisset family is committed to returning the property to its former glory. Structural strengthening has taken place on the Champagne Cellars and repointing, a process of re-grouting the outer layer of mortar that exists around the stonework of the winery buildings has been completed. A unique mortar was created following numerous test mixes to ensure that it is compatible with the soft characteristics of the original stone as well as match the original historic stones. No detail in the renovations is being overlooked. And, while all the construction will continue into 2013 it is still business as usual at Buena

Vista. This month, and for the first time in many years, Shakespeare Under the Stars returned to the winery. Sonomas oldest Shakespeare company presents the magical romantic comedy A Midsummer Nights Dream August 23rd-26th. Kate Kennedy directs the Avalon Players as they portray the adventures of four young Athenian lovers and a rustic group of amateur actors, their interactions with the Duke and Duchess of Athens, the feuding fairy King and Queen, the mischievous Puck, Theseus and Hippolyta, and their fairy subjects who inhabit a moonlit forest. Picnic table seating is available in the Buena Vista courtyard. Show times are 7 p.m. with seating beginning at 6 p.m. Tickets are $25 and may be purchased at the door or on the winery website. Wines will be available for purchase by the glass or bottle. Additionally, every Saturday through October 20th, a free play about the history of Buena Vista will be presented featuring George Webber as Count Agoston Haraszthy a Haraszthy historian as well as an actor.Webber used to conduct walking tours of downtown Sonoma. With the construction, landscaping and all the activity going on out here, it is safe to say that 2012 has been a rebuilding year for Buena Vista, but you know, weve been here for a long time, says Tom Blackwood. Most of the hard work is now behind us and before long the property will begin to shine as it once did in the 1860s but loaded up with 21st century innovations.

A Napa Valley Hidden Gem
When Napa Valley is bustling and its time for a break, drop by Arger-Martucci Vineyards where you can enjoy award-winning wines in a relaxing and unpretentious setting. Located just south of St. Helena, the winery is quaint and picturesque. The tasting rooms poolside picnic area, complete with an outdoor gazebo, boasts a beautiful view of the Mayacamas Mountains and offers guests the ideal atmosphere to taste exceptional wines away from the crowds. Arger-Martucci is a boutique, family-owned winery that is more than a business venture between two owners it is a love and appreciation of making great wine that is shared by two families one Greek, the other of Italian descent. Owners Kosta Arger and Rich Martucci first met and became close friends through a Reno, NV wine tasting group in the 80s. At the time, Arger was establishing himself as an accomplished cardiologist and skilled home winemaker, while Martucci was working to build the struggling bank he had acquired. Dr. Arger, who learned to make wine in the 70s from the legendary Joe Heitz of Heitz Cellars, had always dreamed of starting a Napa Valley winery. In 1998, both families were looking for property in the Napa Valley and decided it was the perfect time to partner and start a winery. The Arger-Martucci partnership is ideal Rich manages the financial aspects of the business, while Kosta handles the winemaking. Still a practicing cardiologist in Reno, Dr. Arger spends his weekends, holidays and the harvest in Napa Valley. The winery is known for its Cabernet Sauvignon and its estate reserve, Bordeaux-style blend, the Odyssey. They produce a handful of other delicious reds, along with an elegant white blend called the Iliad. Other varietals produced include Cabernet Franc, Petite Syrah and Dulcinea (dessert wine). All red wines, with the exception of the Petite Syrah, are estate grown on their mountainside Odyssey Vineyards, which are located 1,400 feet above the Napa Valley floor on Atlas Peak. The next generation is also involved in the winery full time. Anthony Arger handles the outside sales and marketing duties, while Vince Martucci is the assistant winemaker and oversees the tasting room. Stop by and enjoy this wonderful Napa Valley secret.

ARGER MARTUCCI VINEYARDS Open daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. 1455 Inglewood Ave, just south of the town of St. Helena (707) 963-4334 | www.arger-martucci.com On facebook at www.facebook.com/argermartucci

MAIN GALLERY EXHIBIT ANCIENT MYTHS & VINEYARD LIGHT

A photographic journey of spiritual discovery: by photographer/artist Janis Miglavs Runs through October 14, 2012

MUMM NAPA Open daily 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. | Last seating at 4:45 p.m. 8445 Silverado Trail, Rutherford, CA 94573 1-800-MUM-NAPA | mummnapa.com

The Mumm Napa story started with a quest for great New World sparkling wine production. G.H. Mumm, a renowned French Champagnerie, was one of the first of the Old World houses to realize the United States had locations where sun, soil and rain could combine to create spots ready for their style of winegrowing, and Guy Devaux, with more than forty years of sparkling and still wine production experience, was given the task of finding the location worthy of the Mumm name. Monsieur Devaux finally found what he was looking for in the Napa Valley after a four-year search, and in 1986, Mumm Napa was completed along the Silverado Trail in the heart of the Rutherford District. The winery was built to allow for wines produced according to methode traditionelle, which includes hand-pruning and care of the vines, careful hand-harvesting and in-bottle fermentation so each wine has aged on the yeast, the key to great sparklng wines. Although Guy Devaux passed away in 1995, his spirit lives on in the winerys top bottlings, DVX and Devaux Ranch, as well as in the continuation of traditional production processes under Winemaker Ludivic Dervin. The winery has been certified by the Napa Green Winery and Green Land programs, displaying the attention paid to Devauxs legacy. Equally, they work with growers to produce fruit from Carneros and along the Napa River north towards Yountville, aiming for lush and concentrated flavors combined with crisp acidity. Mumm Napa is, in fact, the remaining large sparkling house to source their grapes exclusively from the Napa Valley, continuing Guy Devauxs belief that Napa is the perfect place for New World bubbles. Mumm Napa is well known for its Brut, Rose, Cuvee M, Deveux Ranch, and Blanc

de Blancs bottlings, which display the range of traditional sparkling styles, as well as its top release, DVX, but its only at the winery that you can gain access to older library bottles of DVX in addition to special releases of the Santana Brut, DVX Ros, Sparkling Pinot Noir, and Demi-Sec, a dessert sparkler; the winery also makes available still bottlings of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, as well as large- and small-format bottles of their sparkling wines for those everyday or special occasions in need of pizzazz. Of course, if Mumm Napa were only about its wines, it wouldnt be the world-renowned wine country experience it is, and the real secret is to go at locals time, which is actually in the mornings before the heat and crowds, when palates are at their sharpest and the Valleys best views are in crystal-clear light. Why wouldnt you want to start the day with some bubbles, as everyone says? Once you walk down the breezeway and are greeted by a staff member, everything else is taken care of for you except for deciding which of several different tours and tasting experiences you wish to enjoy. Smaller groups can taste without reservations on the outside patio or in the glass-enclosed tasting salon. Each gives access to staff who really care about your visit and presents views not to be missed. Even more special is the reservations-required Oak Terrace Tasting, which pairs library wines with fruit and cheese, if you choose, with leisurely relaxation on the terrace built around an 180-year-old blue oak, protection of which, in keeping with the Devaux spirit, delayed construction more than nine months in ensuring no damage to the tree during the build. The resulting line of sight over the Valley is magnificent. The winery is quite well known for its Fine Art Photography Gallery; the Private Collection Gallery houses twenty-seven Ansel Adams original signed prints on loan from grandson Matthew Adams, and the Gallery also rotates exhibitions, Ancient Myths and Vineyard Light shows off photographer Janis Miglavss color photographs and illustrations of Africas undiscovered myths and stunning vineyard shots. Sparkling wines and fine art: what could pair better? Clearly, at year twenty-six, Mumm Napa and its staff can be quite proud. Not only have they carried on the discerning eye and demand for highest quality of Guy Devaux, they have continued to push for even greater hospitality and enjoyment of the Valleys bounty. Monsieur Devaux got it absolutely right. Come see and taste for yourself why the quest finally ended when he looked out upon the Valley from the Silverado Trail and knew he had found the place for sparkling wine in Napa. Enjoy!

THANKS For GiviNG US viNTNerS HoLidAYS


Thanksgiving isnt the only great holiday in November. For food and wine lovers, November means its time for a different fall festival that embodies Americas natural bounty to an even greater extent. Its called Vintners Holidays at Yosemite National Park. Celebrating 31 delicious years in 2012, Vintners Holidays brings authentic vintners not sales reps together with Yosemites guests, and the result is a top shelf festival of good times and great wines. Whats even more special about the event is that all the action takes place inside the legendary Four Diamond Ahwahnee hotel in the heart of Yosemite Valley. The idea for Vintners Holidays was inspired by Californias plentiful vineyards and the winemakers who tend to them with self-sacrificing devotion. Guests choose from eight sessions that run from November 4 to December 6 and are treated to an intimate welcome reception with the sessions vintners, a series of wine-tasting seminars and a divine five-course gala dinner. Executive Chef Percy Whatley and the Ahwahnee Culinary Team design the custom gala menu to pair perfectly with the sessions featured wines. So, not only is the atmosphere stunning, but the flavors are equally world class. With Yosemites fall colors as a backdrop, each year this event attracts more than 30 talented winemakers who are crafting some of Californias finest wines. Youll find iconic labels such as Silver Oak and Rombauer sprinkled throughout the sessions. Another fine example, the first session of 2012 (November 4-6) features wines from Simi Winery, whove been winemaking in Alexander Valley since 1876, and Halleck Vineyards, who recently received a 100-point rating for their 2009 Estate Grown Pinot. The second session (November 7-8) features the regions female visionaries. As such, its appropriately titled the Goddesses of the Grape. Amelia Ceja from Ceja

Vineyards is back by popular demand. Its no wonder that she was named most outstanding female leader, innovator and visionary in the wine field in the North Bay by North Bay Business Journal. Vintners Holidays 2012 also features two Master Sommeliers as event moderators. Not too shabby when you consider there are only 129 masters in the entire world. For example, session three (November 11-13) will be hosted by Evan Goldstein. This Master Sommelier penned the famous wine book Perfect Pairings: A Master Sommeliers Practical Advice for Partnering Wine with Food. This novel is noted for its easy-reading tone, its usefulness for all skill levels, and its transcendental ability to make fine wine and expert pairing concepts more accessible to the beginning wine-curious consumer. Sessions five and six (November 25-27, November 28-29) will be moderated by Gilles de Chambure, another of the countrys few

Master Sommeliers. Gilles will be on hand to spark lively chats among the attending winemakers and to host proceedings with his worldly and nearly unrivaled knowledge of wine. The final two sessions (December 2-4, December 5-6) feature Dan Berger as moderator. Dan is widely regarded as one of the best wine writers in the business and has authored two books: Beyond the Grapes: An Inside Look at Napa Valley and Beyond the Grapes: An Inside Look at Sonoma County. In all, the Vintners Holidays experience is a lavish yet tasteful adventure. Youll get closer to people that share similar passions. Youll get closer to the finest wines that North America can produce. Plus, youll get closer to a wilderness that enchants the imaginations of all who visit. For more information on Vintners Holidays and a valley of autumn escapes, call (801) 559-4859 or visit YosemitePark.com/Vintners.

Charles Krugs Tastings On The Lawn


Harvest event to Be Held in 1881 Carriage House and on Great Lawn, Saturday, September 8
Charles Krug Winery and the Peter Mondavi Family will toast the seasons grape harvest at their annual Tastings on the Lawn, Saturday, September 8, from 2 to 5 p.m. The winerys signature event, now in its 61st year, welcomes wine, food and music lovers to the Charles Krug Winerys Great Lawn adjacent to the estates historic Carriage House. Founded in 1861, Charles Krug is Napa Valleys first winery and represents the birthplace of the Napa Valley wine industry. Visitors strolling in the shade of heritage oaks will enjoy tastings of Charles Krug wines from Sauvignon Blanc to Cabernet Sauvignon, including the winerys ultra-premium Limited Release and Family Reserve Bordeaux-style wines. Wines will be paired with a bountiful wine country feast created by Knickerbockers Oak Avenue Catering, who will also dish up pizza from the wood-fired oven to showcase just how easy food and wine pairing can be. Guests will have the opportunity to sample aging wines directly from the oak barrels, and to meet members of three generations of the Peter Mondavi Family who will be on hand for photos and to sign bottles. A harvest tradition, the Peter Mondavi family will delve into their cellars and open special library wines for guests in the upstairs ballroom of the 1881 Carriage House (additional fee applies). The Carriage House ballroom was recently restored using dramatically wine-stained redwood recovered from the winerys historic wine tanks; the ballroom boasts a soaring cathedral ceiling and stunning period-style chandeliers. Back by popular demand, the Steely Dan tribute band, Steely Scam, will perform on the Great Lawn stage as a backdrop for all of the festivities, and will likely inspire guests to kick off their shoes to dance in the soft grass to the beat of classic rock. Caricature artist Doug Shannon will be on hand to create portraits on request. Charles Krug Winerys Tastings on the Lawn began in 1951 as an enjoyable way the family could meet their customers and educate visitors about fine Napa Valley wine in the United States at that time, the wine industry was known for jug wines and not varietal wines. This Charles Krug tradition is believed to have been the first wine celebration of its kind, and went on to inspire myriad other wine country tasting events. Lawn chairs, picnic blankets and straw hats are encouraged for the September 8 event, which runs from 2 to 5 p.m. Tickets are available online (admission $50, Wine Club members $25, Reserve Wine Club members complimentary) at www.charleskrug.com. Charles Krug Winery is located at 2800 Main Street, St. Helena.

WHITEHALL LANE WINERY 1563 St. Helena Hwy South, St. Helena, CA 94574 1-800-963-9454 | www.whitehalllane.com www.facebook.com/whitehalllanewinery www.twitter.com/whitehalllane

As you travel St. Helena Highway visiting wineries, I highly recommend you experience Whitehall Lane Winery and Vineyards, a contemporary world-class operation surrounded by prime Napa Valley vineyards in the heart of St. Helena. At Whitehall Lane Winery, you will appreciate its unique beauty, overlooking the western hills while tasting award- winning wines and learning progressive winemaking techniques first hand. Whitehall Lane Winery was founded in 1979, and was purchased by the Leonardini Family 1993. Since then, they have updated the winemaking process, instituting a new barrel-aging program and continue to nurture and invest in their estate vineyards. The Leonardini Family owns approximately 125 acres of prime, valleyfloor vineyards, located in the Rutherford, St. Helena and Oak Knoll districts. The tasting room holds a simple, trendy and open atmosphere, welcoming a casual wine tasting affair. The walls showcase black and white photography of the Napa wine region, while showcasing several engaging winery, club events and vineyard videos on a large screen tv, as well as select, Whitehall branded retail products. A friendly and knowledgeable staff serve over a dozen varietal wines ranging in price from $18, such as the 2010 Sauvignon Blanc, Napa Valley to the $115 Library Reserve 2004 Leonardini Cabernet Sauvignon. Whitehall Lane Winerys flagship 2009 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon over delivers at $40 a bottle. This attractive wine is loaded with floral and bright fruit qualities, nicely balanced with great length on the finish. The Chronicle recently selected the 2011 Sauvignon Blanc, as a delicious summer afternoon white wine, known for its cold, crisp and fruity flavors. The Leonardini family, winemaker Dean Sylvester and staff pride themselves on offering their customers elegant wines for the best value in Napa Valley. General Manager, Mike McLoughlin says, The Napa Valley offers many expensive wines, however, for great tasting wines and value, you shouldnt miss visiting our tasting room. For group tastings and wine club members, one can enjoy a more intimate experience in the private upstairs V.I.P Club Room . overlooking panaromic vineyard views Westside hills, to a beautiful private garden and barrel cellar. Whitehall Lanes philosophy is clearly stated on the wall and promises consistency and dedication in their vineyards and in every glass of wine! Whitehall Lane is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., offering a Current Release Menu tasting for $15 per person, which includes four wines to sample. Winery tours are offered of their vineyard patio, fermentation cellars, crush pad, barrel room and wine library. Winery-only reserve tastings are also available by appointment.

Gracianna Winery Opens Tasting Room Doors, Unveils Worlds First Vineyard That Wears Jewels
Gracianna Winery has opened its long-anticipated tasting room on the lauded Miracle Mile on Westside Road in Healdsburg. It is one more facet of the Amador familys dream to share warmth, graciousness, gratitude and its award-winning wines with Sonoma County. It offers some one-of-a-kind features found in no other winery in the world. One highlight of the tasting room is its Mercedes Riverblock vineyard, where the vines wear medallions featuring the names of the Amador family and friends and Medallion Wine Club members. The Medallion program will be part of the offerings of the Gracianna wine club, which also launched with the opening of the tasting room. Another interesting feature is the entrance to the tasting room, punctuated by a larger than life sculpture of the trademark gift logo. This will be a landmark for visitors to spot the tasting room at 6914 Westside Road. The intimate, welcoming and uniquely decorated tasting room complements what Gracianna stands for wines for those who have something to be grateful for. By opening our new by-appointment tasting room, our family can realize our long-held dream of being able to host customers, fans, friends, family and members of the local wine community, says Ashley Amador, partner. Visitors are able to taste an award-winning lineup of wines, dating back to 2008, as well as learn first hand about the history behind the Amador family and their Basque matriarch Gracianna Lasaga (for whom the brand was named) how their roots helped plant the seeds for the success that modern day descendants have enjoyed in making brilliant, fruit-forward wines for the world to enjoy. Graciannas winemaker is 27-year-old Trini Amador IV, one of nations the youngest up-and-coming winemakers. The business is run by Trinis sister, Ashley, and their parents, Trini III and Lisa, are also involved in the winery. Ashley says, People always ask, What does the gift on the label mean?

Got a hankering for Zinfandel? Well then you best zip on by Alderbrook Winery, down on the southern edge of Dry Creek Valley. Alderbrook is something of nirvana for Zinfanatics who want as many different Zins as there are days in the week. Alderbrook offers six different Zinfandels, each with its own personality. Add to that a snazzy Zin-based blend called Zinfluence, and for dessert, a Zin Port, and youre set for a whole week of Zin happiness. Alderbrook also produces one of Sonoma Countys finest Carignane, a Spanish varietal often used in California as a blending grape. The Alderbrook Carignane is dark, firm and bold. Ask anyone in Dry Creek whos got the best Carignane, and theyll say Alderbrook. Better yet? Its a steal at $22. In 2002, the Terlato family purchased a majority interest in Alderbrook, adding it to their portfolio of small Napa and Sonoma wineries that includes Chimney Rock, Rutherford Hill and Sanford Winery in Santa Barbara County. The Terlatos also have their own wines featured under the Terlato Family Vineyards label. At Alderbrook, visitors will find the Terlato Familys Russian River Valley Pinot Grigio, a crisp, light wine made in the traditional Italian style that is the perfect foil for oysters, a chilled calamari salad or anything from the sea. You can also try the Terlatos Dry Creek Syrah, a dark, bold wine showing many layers of flavors, is a nice match for anything off the end-of-summer barbecue, red meats or even medium to strong cheeses. Alderbrook has a fantastic porch out front where you can enjoy a picnic and a bottle of one of Alderbrooks Zins. If you dont want to lug around your own picnic all morning, check out the tasting rooms supply of lunch munchies: prosciutto and other deli meats, a selection of cheeses and crackers, and an assortment of dips. After your picnic, dont miss the fabulous array of housewares and wine country gifts to take home as mementos of your wine country vacation. Now Alderbrook also offers a daily tour at 11 a.m. This exciting and educational tour takes visitors through the process of creating fine wine, including a brief explanation of growing premium grapes and a look inside a boutique winery at the wine production process. The tour is $15 per person, complimentary for wine club members (up to four people).

LoST CANYoN WiNerY


A True Keystone of Small Lot, Cool Climate Fine Wines
BY ABIGAIL P. ZIMMERMAN

LOST CANYON WINERY Open friday through Sunday 10 am to 4 pm 123 4th Street in downtown Santa Rosa, CA 95401 (707) 623-9621 | www.lostcanyonwinery.com On facebook and Twitter!

Lost Canyon Winery is the newest, ultra-premium winery to open in historic Railroad Square in downtown Santa Rosa. Sharing a translucent wall with Station 1870 Wine Bar, Lost Canyon Winerys Tasting Room boasts a stunning collection of small-lot, single-vineyard wines from the cool Russian River Valley. Lost Canyons wine portfolio focuses on Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and a spectacular cool-climate Syrah. And, just how small is small lot? The largest batch of wine produced by Lost Canyon is less than 700 cases. The Lost Canyon label was originally started in Oakland in 1979 but was recently purchased by Clay Fritz, son to the Fritz Cellars wine legacy and owner of Station 1870 Wine Bar. Clay sought to diversify the Fritz Cellars portfolio with the purchase and immediately branched out to select only the finest, boutique vineyards for his new artisan label. Today, Lost Canyon wines are sourced from Russian River vineyards that include famed Saralee Vineyard, Ruxton Vineyards and Morelli Lane with the largest block of grapes being approximately five acres. When you visit as you must! be sure to try the 2010 Ruxton Vineyard Chardonnay. This stellar white wine has real zing and is a full-bodied wine with big notes of citrus, white flowers and a long mineral-driven finish. Fermented 60% in new French oak barrels, this Chardonnay truly lets the terroir of the Ruxton Vineyard shine through. Caution, this is not a Chardonnay for you butter-lovers but rather a fantastically food-friendly wine that will pair nicely with anything ($35). While the Lost Canyon pours some of the finer Pinot Noirs in town (and I truly enjoyed the Morelli Lane Pinot produced entirely from Dijon and Pommard clones), I would like to strongly urge you to try the 2008 Trenton Station Syrah. Please dont get a tasting pour, be sure to order a glass. The 2008 Trenton Station Syrah is one of those unique, memorable Syrahs that truly expresses the primal, sexy, epically alluring quality of Syrah fruit grown in the cooler microclimate, just off River Road in Forestville. Syrahs traditional notes of dusty Earth and hot spice are refocused and tightened by being grown in cooler morning fogs, sandy soils and a longer hang-time on the vine. The Lost Canyon Syrah has a luscious mouth-feel and superb finish of black fruit, burnished leather and red spices. I rarely say this, but Wow ($35). Receive a complimentary wine tasting for two when you mention this article or bring in Wine Country This Week.

Artwork of Michael Holland Returns to Charles Creek Vineyard Tasting Room & Gallery
The artwork of Sonomas own Michael Holland returns to Charles Creek Vineyards Tasting Room and Gallery with a show of new paintings and prints, scheduled to hang through September 30. The current show is focusing primarily on works created after the artist suffered from a debilitating stroke in 2008. Painting now with his left hand, Mikes post-2008 works, while clearly exhibiting his mastery of color, also display a unique sensibility that goes beyond the physical changes he has experienced since the stroke, seemingly emanating from a different emotional well-spring. Specializing in high quality Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon from great vineyard sources in the Sonoma and Napa Valleys, Charles

First held in 1855, it is, by far, the oldest wine competition in America, and is firmly established as the most prestigious of American Wine Competitions. According to industry leaders, it is the most meaningful of the major competitions restricted to California wines. In addition, the uniqueness of this competition gives further credibility to its future within the industry. It is the only competition that requires all wines to be entered based on the viticultural area (also known as an appellation, Region or AVA) where the grapes are grown, not where the winery is located. This year, the CA State Fair received 2,890 wine entries from 688 participating wineries. The Best of California award is given to only 25 wines one for each varietal / category. After the judges award medals, they line up all of the Double Gold and Gold winners to determine the one best wine for each varietal So when the results were tallied, BRYTER Estates 2009 Inspired Cabernet Sauvignon was named the best overall Cabernet in California. Terin Ignozzi, winemaker uses old world techniques with modern sensibilities to create award-winning wines. Terin and her team are proud to be listed with some of the best wineries in California.

Foley Family Wines Announces Strategic Partnership With Langtry Estate & Vineyards
FFW To Lead Sales and marketing For Historic Guenoc valley Winery
Foley Family Wines announced it has formed a strategic partnership with Langtry Estate & Vineyards to lead sales and marketing for the iconic Guenoc Valley producer. The Langtry Estate is steward to 23,000 acres within both Lake and Napa Counties. With the establishment of the Guenoc Valley AVA on December 21, 1981, Langtry became the first winery in the nation with its own appellation. Under the Langtry and Guenoc brands, the winery currently crafts approximately 175,000 cases of wine annually. The winery offers four tiers of wines: Langtry Single Vineyard Wines (limited, estate, singlevineyard, luxury-class), Guenoc Lake County Wines (premium, single-AVA), Guenoc North Coast Victorian Claret (Bordeaux blend) and Guenoc California Selection Wines (value, broad distribution). The winery has enjoyed significant critical success for all of its wines. The Guenoc Petite Sirah ranks in the top five in US sales within its price segment. The Guenoc California Selection Sauvignon Blanc is in the top 10 in US sales in its price segment. We are excited to be partnering with the robust sales and marketing team at Foley Family Wines, said Easton Manson, President of Langtry. Their expertise and execution will be invaluable in our efforts to expand sales and distribution across the county for all of our tiers, especially our Guenoc California Selection wines which feature new packaging and redesigned labels. Langtry and Guenoc are the two most recognizable and important brands from Lake County, said Bill Foley. The addition of their wines will strengthen our portfolio and help us gain access to a number of important national and regional accounts. Foley Family Wines was established by Bill Foley in 1996 with the acquisition of Lincourt Vineyards in Californias Santa Ynez Valley. Since then, Foley Family Wines has grown to become a major producer, marketer and distributor of highly-acclaimed, handmade wines from some of the worlds greatest vineyards.

Shannon Ridge Family of Wines Opens New Tasting Room


Shannon Ridge Family of Wines has opened a new tasting room in the High Valley Appellation of Lake County. Located on Highway 20 in the town of Clearlake Oaks, the tasting room gives Shannon Ridge Family of Wines greater visibility and access. Our goal is to make the new tasting room a real expression of the agriculture of Lake County, stated Clay Shannon. Of course well have wine tasting, but we also plan to offer our grass-fed lamb, fresh produce, a gourmet deli and a store with fresh-brewed coffee and homemade ice cream. We expect the tasting room to be the go-to place for locals who are shopping for produce or dinner supplies, continued Shannon, and for visitors to Lake County who are looking for a taste of great wine and a gourmet sandwich. The new tasting room is located at 13151 East Highway 20 in Clearlake Oaks and is open daily from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, call (707) 998-9656. The Shannons are committed to preserving their land, not only for the great vineyard sites but also for the bear, elk, mountain lions and other creatures which live there. Of the approximately 1,400 acres on the ranch, only about 35% have been converted to vineyards. The balance of the land has been preserved for the wildlife which wanders through the property from the expansive wilderness area to the north and east. The vineyards were carefully planned out, leaving corridors open to migrating animals and to protect sensitive nesting areas.

McGrail won the Sweepstakes Red Wine Award from the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition this year for its flagship wine, the 2008 McGrail Vineyards Cabernet

LIVERMORE VALLEY Wine Country


Sauvignon Reserve. We farm it to the highest degree for quality. We drop fruit several times throughout the year and we strive for the best fruit possible, said Heather McGrail, McGrail Vineyards and Winery President. The winery ages its wine for 30 months in oak barrels. The extra time in the barrel helps integrate the flavors. They also taste each and every barrel before finalizing its blend which ensures top quality. Jim and Ginger McGrail opened McGrail Vineyards and Winery in 2008 with the help of their daughter, Heather McGrail. The McGrails have been growing grapes for the last 12 years for the Steven Kent Winery. In 2009, they hired Mark Clarin as winemaker and the rest is history. We use the time honored method of producing wine; start with good grapes and dont mess it up, Heather McGrail said. Our winery is all about fun, family and friends. According to her, the Petite Sirah and Chardonnay are other popular selections. The Chardonnay is a California style Chardonnay with fruit notes, oak and butter. The Petite Sirah is grown from the fruit of a family friend and neighbor, Julio Covarrubias. It has blueberry notes, dark fruit and dry tannins. Two wines were released this year, a dry Cabernet Sauvignon Ros and a 2009 Reserve Cabernet that will be released in July. When the tasting room originally opened they poured only one wine, the 2005 Reserve Cabernet, the same recipe but different vintage. Each year, they work at improving this wine while keeping it consistent with previous vintages. Its exciting that three vintages later we have successfully created a wine that receives such high honors, Heather McGrail said. She says besides sampling the award winning wines, guests always have the opportunity to meet someone from the family at the winery on any certain day. The tasting room is open Friday through Monday and by appointment Tuesday through Thursday. They offer private vineyard tours as well as private tastings for groups or events. For more information, call (925) 215-0717 or visit the website at www.mcgrailvineyards.com.

Harvest Celebration Celebrates 31st Year in Lovely Livermore Valley Wine Country
BY LAURA NESS

Livermore Valley Wine Country is truly one of the best-kept secrets in Northern Californias treasure trove of wine regions. If you visit this beautiful hilly vine-rowed mecca on a quintessential late-summer or early-autumn day, youll enjoy the abundant sunshine of summer, cooled by a beautiful breeze that makes sitting outdoors downright pleasant. Hopefully, Harvest Festival this year, held on Sunday, September 2nd and Monday, September 3rd, will be blessed with this kind of weather. On such a day, I happened on Retzlaff Winery as two couples, men in suits, women in fashionably chic dresses, walked in, having just come from a wedding at nearby Ruby Hill Winery. They had an hour until the reception and decided to come wine tasting. Turns out they were from Scottsdale, AZ, and had never been to Livermore. I joined them in a glass of Retzlaff Sauvignong Blanc as they sat in the shade of the enormous pepper trees, transfixed by the natural beauty of the setting. I am sitting here thinking Im really, truly in paradise! said the woman wearing the pearls. This is just so beautiful, I never even thought wine country could be this spectacularly pretty! I wish I could just stay right here, drinking this wine, for the rest of my life! As I left our Arizona visitors to pursue my Harvest Wine Celebration rounds (with visits to Nottingham Cellars, McGrail, Wood Family and Rodrigue Molyneaux), all four were mesmerized by the confluence of the moment: when everything just comes together. I know theyll all be back. They had just discovered the new gold in Livermore: its blonde hills, ruffled by the Bay breeze, and vineyards heavy with Chardonnay grapes glistening in late August afternoon light. You, too can enjoy the beauty of this region on Harvest Festival weekend. Visit Longevity, Nottingham and Occasio, three wineries on Vasco, right next to one another. Therell be plenty of great food, and the wines to pay attention to are the 2010 Sotto Voce and 2011 Sauv Blanc from Occasio, the 2009 Tempranillo from Longevity and the 2010 Awakening GSM from Nottingham Cellars. Then, on to McGrail for some award-winning Cabernet. If its Sangiovese youre hankering for, Rodrigue Molyneaux is your best bet: theyre pouring at Concannon, along with several other wineries, including Darcie Kent Gallery, who makes gorgeous Gruner Veltliner and Merlot, Bodegas Aguirre, whose Malbec and Petite Sirah

are amazing, plus En Garde, one of the newest wineries in the region (lovely ros and tempting Tempranillo). On to Wente, where Muriettas Well is pouring: The Whip and The Spur blends are fantastic values. Make sure to pick up some great mustards and a bottle of something Rhone from Les Chenes Estates while youre there. Its easy to make a full day or two of this festival, now in its 31st year. Many wineries will have special activities planned for Monday, so be sure to come back and enjoy things like bottle your own wine at Cedar Mountain Winery, el Sol Winery and Eckert Estate Winery. Be responsible recyclers, and bring your own bottles! Enjoy barrel tasting at Mitchell Katz or beekeeping demos at el Sol. For tickets and information, including bus route map for Sunday only, visit www.LVwine.org or call 925-447-WINE.

August: When Grapes Become Teens


BY LAURA NESS

6-6-12 WCTW S2S Ad-July vert. 3.75w x 6.25 h

August brings the beginnings of ripeness to the vineyards, and depending on the vagaries of the season, red grapes will begin veraison, turning from green to various shades of purple, somewhere around the middle to the end of this typically toasty month. Everyone is very optimistic about the cropload and the quality so far. Come on out to the vineyards and check out the beautiful Chardonnay at Burrell School and the lovely clusters of Pinotage at Loma Prieta. Winemakers with fog pressures are hoping they dont have to spray for mildew abatement, as the buildup of sulfur on the fruit the closer you get to harvest is not ideal. Theyre also praying that excessive heat waves can be avoided, as the slow maturation of fruit flavors is what theyre after, not just a sudden run-up in sugars which can send cluster chemistry into what literally amounts to diabetic coma. While July is the month where you pull up the wires to accommodate dramatic growth, when you leaf thin for optimal sun exposure and when you pull shoots and drop non-optimal clusters, August is the month you weigh your options on fruit load. If its nice and warm, you might ride it out and keep the clusters in place. If its excessively cool, you take the chance to start dropping fruit. If you dont keep the vines balanced now, you run the risk of either never getting fruit truly ripe before the growing season wanes. Or, you face the consequences of excessive cluster dropping should a September heat wave ensue, throwing the vines into that diabetic coma we talked about earlier, combined with dehydration and heat exhaustion. August is also the time that the bird netting goes up in earnest, and the sounds of bird bombs, air rifles and cannons begin to sound off in those vineyards where netting is too labor intensive. Whether you use the Australian white throwover nets or you install the green or black kind that attach to the trellising and roll up when not in use, most netting lasts only five seasons, due to weathering and UV exposure. Who said having a vineyard was cheap, or fun? Speaking of fun, we know you just wanna have fun in the summer. The Summit to Sea Wineries have tasteful tattoos for the girls. Make sure you get one of those oh so sexy Wine Babes beauties to show off your fabulous summer tan! Grab picnic fixins from the Summit Store and head to one our beautiful mountain wineries for some summer fun.
