INTELLIGENCE FOr THE WINE CONSUMEr


BY LEN NAPOLITANO

What is Riesling?
Riesling is a white wine grape variety, just as Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc are also grape varieties. Unfortunately, while Riesling does not enjoy the popularity of Chardonnay, it is a refreshing wine at great value. In my opinion, its light characteristics offer a nice change from the trend toward heavier style wines in either red or white especially during the summer. A big myth about Riesling is that it is always a sweet wine. This may have been true during the sixties when a sweet Rieslings were popular, but it is not true today. The ubiquitous Blue Nun brand was a sweet wine from Germany during that period and it contained some percentage of Riesling and may have contributed to the growth of this falsehood. Wine drinkers today have more of a dry wine preference and thankfully enjoy many more choices when it comes to Riesling. Native to Germany, where it has grown extensively for centuries, Riesling wines have a delicate fruitiness with a noticeable acidity and pleasant spiciness. German-made versions are categorized according the degree of sweetness, with the price generally increasing hand in hand with the amount of sugar remaining in the wine. The residual sugar range of categories start at a level barely detectable and go all the way to extremely sweet. In France, it is also a popular variety in the Alsace region, which borders Germany, and where it is always made dry. California Rieslings offer a range of styles, from dry to sweet, and the style is not always indicated on the label. When faced with making a purchasing decision for a Riesling wine, be sure to ask if it is a dry or sweet (also referred to as off-dry). In either case, the wine has aromas of green apples, is light in body, has little to no influence of oak barrel aging, should be served very chilled to bring out its crisp acidity, and, maybe best of all, pairs wonderfully with many dishes, including salads, spicy and Asian foods. It also serves as a great warm weather wine because of its lower than normal alcohol level.

BY JOSH STEIN

Why the Weather Matters This Year AND Next


Wherever you go in wine country, youre bound to see machinery, equipment, even the vineyards themselves, which is oriented towards mitigating weather influences. Unlike row crops, vineyards and orchards cant pick up and makes changes every year, but they can make changes to things around said vineyards. Why is this necessary in the first place? Because weather problems can affect not just this years crop but next years too, and damaging vines through cold or heat can quickly become a far more expensive proposition than the costs of installing solutions to keep the problems at bay. Why? Because vines arent like other annual crops. If you look closely at a vine, you will see both this years and next years buds, which is why weather damage can be such a problem: a grower is forced to contemplate the loss of multiple years income. Inside each bud are really small leaves, and from them come the leaves, canes, shoots and grapes, and each bud has concentric layers, which is why weather damage is along a continuum. Minor damage, generally from frost, may reduce the yield a bit, but its the more severe darkening, akin to frostbite, which is the real issue, guaranteeing a crop loss of at least fifty percent, if not more. Equally, the phloem, the bark on exterior of canes and vine trunks, can also be damaged by cold, causing crop losses, too. The best way to undestand winegrowing options for weather mitigation is to walk through the vineyard throughout the year. Winter cold is actually no issue because the vines are dormant, which is why all fifty states have vineyards. Spring is when weather has the most impact on two years crop because the weather often flipflops quite quickly, and rain at an early point can be helpful to bring temperatures up while later in the season causing crop damage via hail or thunderstorms winds. Shattering of the blooming flowers can disrupt clusters or keep them from being fertilized, yet when faced with a frost event earlier in the year, rain is welcomed as it brings the temperature up above freezing. Summer and fall heat can also be an issue because too-high a temperature can cause vines to shut down, shriveling or even sunburning grapes, and also potentially killing the vine in the process. There are actually lots of options for mitigation, and the best, as you might expect, are set up so as to help solve more than one problem. Believe it or not, something as simple as low trellising versus high has an impact as far as weather goes as low trellises in the wrong locales are more subject to frost damage, and higher trellises can provide shade for adjacent rows. How the trellis is trimmed in winter and early spring prior to budbreak is thus one strategy, and there is projected to be a move back to California Sprawl from the VSP candelabra currently seen all over as the North Coast replants in the next few years for this reason: not only does this provide different vine growth and brix gains, but it also helps as regards frost or hail damage during April and May, when the buds break and the vines flower. Mechanical options abound, too. The winds machines, those twirling engines and fans on poles; the Inverted Sinks or Air Dams, which essentially turn the wind machine to provide a frost sink to pull cold air down and away from vines on hillsides and slopes; vertical sprinklers and micro-sprinklers, which can raise the temperature or allow frozen water to encase and protect the vines; and smudge pots, the gas fired heaters for the end of vineyard rows which work in combination with wind machinesall are ways to work in combination with the land to mitigate the negatives of weather while allowing the terroir, the locational distinctiveness, to still show through in the grapes and finished wines by moving the weather since the vines really cannot. Its not always easy or cheap, but the results are worth it, no? Enjoy!
Josh Stein has been in the Napa wine business for more than a decade, and, in addition to being owner/winemaker of the Stein Family Wine Group, which produces a nationally and internationally distributed portfolio of wine brands and donates 5% of its sales to the children of wineworkers in the form of college scholarships and support funds, he regularly consults for wineries and organizations throughout the North Bay and Coast via their subsidiaries, Discrete Wine Support Services and SF-Integrated Vineyard Management.

CLiNe CeLLArs
Try The Syrah Hill Tasting Tour
BY MIKE HYLAND

July 13, 11 a.m. - 6 p.m. $30 advance, $35 at the gate www.clinecellars.co m/jazzfestival

Dont Miss! Cline Wine & Dixieland Jazz Fest ival

Open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. 24737 Arnold Dr Sonoma, CA 95476 (707) 940-4000 | www.clinecellars.com

Cline Cellars offers free public tours of the winery grounds every day at 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m., but there is one tour in particular that should not be missed. The Syrah Hill tour and tasting begins in the tasting room with a glass of sparkling wine before guests are loaded into a van and driven through vineyard roads up to the top of Syrah Hill. The estate entails some 350 acres of vineyards, gardens and the winery buildings. The vineyard roads are unpaved and generally not open to the public, so walking up the hill is not an option. Once at the top of the hill, the oohs and aahs begin as the views are amazing from Mount Tamalpais to Mt. St. Helena on a clear day. Sipping Cline wines, and enjoying artisan cheeses surrounded by Syrah vines is truly an incredible experience. This special tasting takes place on Saturday and Sunday at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., weather permitting, and groups are limited to 12 guests. The tour is $40 per person, $30 for Cline wine club members or $20 for dual Cline/Jacuzzi Family Vineyards wine club members. Back down the hill, the grounds of the winery are some of the most welcoming in all of wine country. People get married on the property and businesses have meetings and retreats there as well. In fact, the property is so expansive and elegant, it is a perfect setting to host any kind of celebration. From the Great Lawn that can host 1,000 people to the restored vintage Rail Car and deck that can seat up to 80 guests (or 175 standing), the property can accommodate all manner of parties and events. The Adobe Mission is of historic origins and is surrounded by ponds and flowering gardens. A flagstone reception area under eucalyptus trees makes for an intimate wedding or special event venue. The Barrel Room is an impressive location for large indoor events such as a wedding, corporate gala or business meeting. The Barrel Room accommodates 250 guests seated or 400 standing. For California history buffs, one of the most interesting parts of a visit to Cline Cellars (aside from wine tasting) is an exhibition of scale models of all 21 of Californias historical

Missions that are on display in the Mission Museum on the winery grounds. Beginning in 1769 and continuing for the next 50 years, Spanish Missions were built along Californias El Camino Real highway. Spanning 650 miles from San Diego to Sonoma, the Camino Real and the Missions that occupy it are a legacy of the states history. The construction of the models of the Missions on display at the winery museum was based on two years of research and was completed by a team of German cabinet makers under the direction of Italian artist Leon Bayard de Volo. All were designed to scale, are faithful representations of the original missions, and are finely detailed down to the shrubbery. Materials used in the construction of the missions include wood, clay, glass, cast iron, paperboard and real plant material. As a collection, the models are acclaimed as extraordinary and accurate depictions. In 1998 Nancy Cline saved the models from being auctioned off individually, and in 2005 created the museum as a fitting showcase for these historical treasures. In addition to the models, the museum also features a life-size figure of Father Junipero Serra, mission paintings by local artists Robert Morris and Henry Nelson, and two stained-glass panels originally housed in Mission Delores prior to the 1906 earthquake. When planning your wine country adventure, remember to plan extra time to taste and explore the beautiful Cline Cellars.

triNCHero NAPA vALLeY


Spring Fling Event, May 25
Nestled off the winding section of Highway 29 just north of Saint Helena, is the hidden gem, Trinchero Napa Valley winery. Trinchero Napa Valley is the signature wine collection of Trinchero Family Estates, Napa valley vintners since 1948. The winery is a work of art unto itself. No detail was overlooked and we worked tirelessly to not only make this a functioning flagship winery, but to also make it a place for friends and family to gather, noted Bob Torres, senior vice president of production and third generation Trinchero family member. Wines bearing the Trinchero Napa Valley label are luxury class, single-vineyard designates which are carefully handcrafted and produced in limited quantities. Trinchero Napa Valley sources its grapes from 100 acres of estate vineyards in prime Napa Valley appellations, including St. Helena, Mount Veeder, Rutherford and Atlas Peak. Mario Monticelli just celebrated his fifth harvest as winemaker of the award-winning wines, each of which represent the unique terroir of these subappellations. Like the Trinchero family, Mario Monticelli has deep roots in the wine country of Italy. Growing up in Northern California, his Italian-born father sparked his interest in winemaking at an early age. Mario was exposed to every aspect of the winemaking process; from driving tractors in the vineyards to picking the grapes. Mario continued his passion for winemaking and Italy by graduating from UC Davis with a Bachelor of Science of Viticulture and Enology as well as with a Bachelor of Art of Italian Language. This Memorial Day weekend, on Saturday May 25, wine lovers and locals can join Mario and the Trinchero family for the Trinchero Napa Valley Spring Fling

The town of Sonoma offers visitors highly acclaimed wines, culinary adventures and insights into the rich cultural heritage that has led Sonoma to being one of the worlds premier wine producing regions. Located just a short walk from the Historic Sonoma Plaza is Sebastiani Vineyards and Winery. From food trucks to historic car shows, they are a central hot spot for downtown Sonoma and with newly introduced wine programs; you are going to love your next visit to Sonoma! This historic winery began as a dream for Samuele Sebastiani who emigrated from Tuscany in 1895 and started the winery nine years later. In 2001 the tasting room and hospitality center underwent a major renovation so guests could embrace the romantic Tuscan character through the new cultural and historic programs offered. In addition, the production facility was upgraded with a renewed focus on small-lot artisan winemaking. Bill Foley, vintner and entrepreneur, acquired the winery in 2008 and, as part of Foley Family Wines, Sebastiani is committed to crafting appellation specific wines of Sonoma County. Their grounds are lush with olive trees and outdoor tables are set upon the cobblestone patio for you to enjoy a glass of your favorite Sebastiani wines. Wine tastings are $10-$20 for a flight of seven wines and this month, they are releasing their 2012 Sonoma County Sauvignon Blanc. Wine tasting at their large tasting bar is always casual and fun but for those looking to expand their wine knowledge, Sebastiani now offers four exclusive tasting experiences. Delve deeper into wine history, food and wine pairings, winemaking techniques and the culture of wine in their historic tasting room. These events showcase Sebastianis wines and food from some of Sonomas most celebrated chefs, cheese makers and chocolatiers. Sebastiani offers guests a chance to be their own winemaker during their Wine Blending Seminar. On the second and fourth Sunday of each month, a wine educator will guide you through the same steps used by professional winemakers to determine a final blend. This is a hands-on experience that begins by learning how to evaluate wine from a winemakers perspective and ends with the creation of several unique blends. If you are foodie and love pairings, Sebastiani

has you covered.

Wine Tasting in
LIVERMORE VALLEY Wine Country
Garr Wines A Glass from the Past to Toast the Future
SUBMITTED BY GINA MOLINArO-CArDErA

Historians can trace the viticulture activity in the Livermore Valley back to 1832. We can trace our family winemaking back to the early 19th century as well to a small village outside of Genoa, Italy. A family photo hangs in our Tasting Room of Nonna Rosa Garr with a glass of wine in her hand and her son-in-law, Gino Molinaro, holding the jug of family wine. The picture was taken in Glen Ellen at our familys summer cabin in the early 1930s. My dad, (Bob Molinaro, Garr Winery owner) tells the story of

his dad and uncles getting together every year to make their wine for the family. The truck would bring red grapes from Napa to San Francisco, where the families lived. The grapes would be crushed and fermented and the wine would be made. My uncles learned from their uncles who brought their knowledge and experience from the Old Country to the New World. Our heritage and family traditions are the backbone of Garr, welcoming everyone who visits as family to enjoy the experience of Old Italy. Stop by for a visit, youll be glad you did. Share in our toast of a glass from the past, a toast to the future.

The winery itself is housed in an historic building that was designed to utilize the slope of a hill to move the grapes through the process of becoming fine wine, long before electricity was brought to the site. Now operated by the Eakle family, Pope Valley Winery produces 5,000 cases of some of the finest wines in the Napa Valley, all of which are from estate grown fruit, with some from vines that are nearly 70 years old.

Tempranillo TAPAS Grand Wine Tasting, June 23


For the sixth year, the Tempranillo Advocates, Producers and Amigos Society is hosting the most extensive annual tasting of domestically-produced Tempranillos, Albarios, Garnachas, Verdelhos and many more, from the wine regions of the western United States. Grapes native to the Iberian Peninsula produce some of the hottest-selling wines on the market right now, but not many people know that there are excellent and unique domestic versions being grown, too. Trade and consumers will have the unique opportunity to taste wines produced by TAPAS members in a casual walk-around setting where they can chat with the growers and producers. Many TAPAS members are limitedproduction, family-owned wineries and will be pouring small lot wines that are not widely available. Wine will be available for sale at this event. This year the event will be held at the Golden Gate Club at the Presidio in San Francisco on Sunday, June 23. Two special Kickoff Seminars will take place prior to the event: Arizona? Growing Spanish Varieties in the American Southwest with panelists including Maynard James Keenan of Caduceus Cellars, Tim White of Arizona Stronghold, Todd Bostock of Dos Cabezas WineWorks and Kent Callaghan of Callaghan Vineyards and Defining American Tempranillo. Kickoff Seminar attendees receive early admission (1 p.m.) to the Grand Wine Tasting. Tickets for the Kickoff Seminars and Consumer Tasting are available at tapas13.eventbrite.com. Advance ticket prices are $60 for the Consumer Tasting only, or $95 for the Kickoff Seminars with early admission to the Consumer Tasting. Tickets for the Consumer Tasting only will be available at the door for $65. The event will include a silent auction featuring special wines and other great items. For directions to the Golden Gate Club, visit www.presidio.gov/visit/transportation. Tempranillo Advocates, Producers and Amigos Society (TAPAS) is a trade association comprised of over one hundred members, whose mission is: To promote Tempranillo and other varietal wine grapes native to the Iberian Peninsula and wines produced from them in North America.

A Day of Wine, Food & Fun: Lodi Appellations Ninth Annual ZinFest Wine Festival, May 18
Join the Lodi Appellations growers and vintners at the Ninth Annual ZinFest Wine Festival for an afternoon filled with incredible wine, food and entertainment. Festivities are scheduled for Friday through Sunday, May 17-19, with the main festival taking place on Saturday, May 18, from noon to 5 p.m. at Lodi Lake Park. Additional weekend activities include the popular Vintners Grille on Friday, May 17, and Sundays Winery Tours and Open Houses on May 19. The ZinFest Wine Festival will feature 200 handcrafted wines from over 40 Lodi wineries. Along with exceptional Lodi wines, guests will enjoy a selection of gourmet food from local restaurants, live music and educational tips from the ZinFest Wine and Cooking Schools, where guest speakers such as Master Sommelier, Catherine Fallis and chefs Ruben Larrazolo of the locally-acclaimed Alebrijes Mexican Bistro and Mark Berkner of Taste Restaurant will be presenting. Unique to this event, a custom blended commemorative bottling of Old Vine Zinfandel will be available for purchase. Although Lodis climate and terroir allows for close to 100 different varietals to thrive, its important to pay homage to the grape that has helped define the region. ZinFest is a great way to learn more about Lodis history with Zinfandel and taste the many unique wines that are produced from the area, as well as connect with the passionate winemakers and growers, states Camron King, Executive Director of the Lodi Winegrape Commission. Tickets are now on sale and can be purchased online at www.ZinFest.com or by calling the Lodi Wine and Visitor Center at (209) 365-0621. Advance tickets cost $45 per person and $55 at the event. Designated driver tickets are also available for $10 per person. Tickets include a ZinFest wine glass, wine tasting, participation in all seminars and entertainment. All attendees must be 21 years of age or older. Located south of Sacramento and west of the Sierra Nevada, the Lodi wine region features 100,000 acres of vineyards that thrive in the classic Mediterranean climate of warm days and cool evenings. With more than 75 varieties currently being cultivated, Lodi offers a diverse portfolio of wines. While long known as a superior producer of Zinfandel, including an estimated 2,000 acres of preProhibition own rooted vines, the area also produces award-winning Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah and Chardonnay. More recently, Lodi has begun producing varietals such as Albario, Tempranillo, Graciano and Vermentino, among many others. Lodi has been a major winegrape growing region since the 1850s, and today is farmed by over 750 growers. The region also serves as home to more than 80 boutique wineries specializing in small-lot, handmade wines that have garnered major awards at domestic and international wine competitions. In addition, Lodi is one of the leading wine regions in sustainable viticulture. The Lodi Winegrape Commission created Lodi Rules, Californias first third-partycertified sustainable winegrowing program. For more information about the Lodi wine region, visit www.lodiwine.com.

Dont Miss the Judds Hill Springtime Bonanza


Vibrant green buds are beginning to peek their leafy tips through the vines, signaling the start of another growing season in wine country. Spring is here and its a wonderful time to visit your favorite wineries and discover a few new ones. One of our favorite boutique wineries happens to be located on the southern end of the Silverado Trail in Napa Valley. It is called Judds Hill Winery and MicroCrush, and the folks who run the place really love to have a good time. They dont need much prompting to get them in the mood for a party, or in this case a Bonanza! To kick off the 2013 growing season and celebrate the vineyards awakening from their winter slumber, Judds Hill is hosting a Bonanza, their 7th annual Springtime Bonanza on Friday, May 5th from 12 to 2:30 p.m. It is a benefit for the Napa Valley Youth Symphony and if youve never attended a party at Judds Hill, we suggest you make plans to be there and experience their relaxed and friendly hospitality first hand. As with any Judds Hill party, its a good idea to come ready to eat. Although it is a benefit for the Napa Valley Youth Symphony and musicians from the symphony will provide entertainment throughout, the real star of the show is the food. As in years past, a world-class barbecue lunch will be prepared and served. Dont expect dainty finger-foods and miserly appetizers here. The good people of Judds Hill know how to feed their fans. Tri-tip and ribs, beans and cole slaw are all on the menu. As a special treat, winemarinated barbecued flank steak will be served and paired with the newly released 2010 Judds Hill Syrah. Other new release wines, such as the Judds Hill 2012 Ros and 2012 Sauvignon Blanc will also make their public debut at the event. And no barbecue at Judds Hill would be complete without sampling their most popular 2011 Zinfandel, otherwise known as Burkes Blazing BBQ Zin. This wine is crafted every year with the express purpose of being the perfect wine to pair with the food served at their Bonanza. Tickets are $55 per person, but for Judds Hill Wine Club members entry is absolutely

free. Youll enjoy great wine, food, music and people, all for a good cause. What could be better on a beautiful spring day? If you happen to miss the party, you should call the winery and make an appointment to visit their tasting room, open daily from 10 to 4 p.m. Their small-lot, hand-crafted wines are affordably price and produced in a food-friendly style making them a popular choice among Napa Valley restaurants. With less than 3,000 cases produced annually, you are not likely to find these wines outside of Napa. You can also make your own wine at Judds Hill in small (or larger) lots, hence the MicroCrush moniker. It is one of the few places where wine enthusiasts can make a single barrel of their own wine from either their own grapes or from grapes sourced by Judds Hill. And if a barrel of custom wine, which is about 288 bottles, is a bit much Judds Hill offers another option for personalized wine. Their Bottle Blending Day Camp is held daily by advance appointment. Here guests craft their own cuvee using Bordeaux varietal barrel samples and are led by a Judds Hill wine educator who guides them toward their final blend which is then bottled, corked and labeled. It is a fun and hands-on way to experience wine country, perfect for couples and groups of all sizes. Theres always something fun happening at Judds Hill. Make a point to check them out and see for yourself.

sCott CHAFeN
Dutch Henry Winery
BY JOSH STEIN

There are still pockets of Old Napa proudly making wine their way, but you have to know where to look to find the best of the best. Running along the northern edge of the Silverado Trail, above its namesake canyon, lies Dutch Henry Winery, surrounded by Syrah vines, organic vegetable gardens and olive trees which provide the estate olive oil, picnic tables and a bocce court. Established in 1992, Dutch Henry Winery is owned and operated by the Chafen family. The family takes great pride in nurturing all aspects of their winery and vineyards, having done so for three decades in the upper Napa Valley; the vineyards, orchards and vegetable gardens are all organically certified to ensure their peak performance. Known for highest-quality wines, all of the Chafens vineyards are located in the northeast part of the Valley, an area winemaker Scott Chafen calls the jewel in the crown nestled along the southwesternfacing slopes of the Vaca mountain range and overlooking the entire eastern side of the Valley. Comprising two vineyards at 800 and 1200 feet above sea level, they are planted to eighteen acres of five Cabernet Sauvignon clones and a small amount of Petite Verdot. The soils there, and the carefully selected clones that have been planted, bring about the concentrated flavors for which Dutch Henry is known. Scotts father, Les, a radiologist and medical researcher who got the family started in viticulture in the 1980s, is often to be found pouring wine on the premises. Wife Maggie is also the owner of Dottie Doolittle, a well-known San Francisco childrens clothing store. Scott concentrates on his passion for fine wine by exercising his personal philosophy that the best wines are made in the vineyard: Thats where all the secrets are. My job is just to bring out the best that is already in the fruit. Dutch Henry thus specializes in small lots of handcrafted wines, producing about six thousand cases annually. Bordeaux varietals dominate in the Argos blend and the several Cabernet Sauvignon bottlings, including the Estate, Reserve and Terrier Station. Others include an estate Syrah, a unique Mt. Veeder Pinot Noir, Zinfandel, Cab Franc, Merlot, Petite Sirah, Sauvignon Blanc and a dry ros. The Wanted red blend is just about to be released, too! Scott Chafen knows the meaning of doing it all yourself. Since Dutch Henry opened its doors in 1992, Scott has worn many hats: winemaker, cellar rat, sales guy, office manager, landscaper, olive picker, architect, delivery boy, forklift driver, customer service anything and everything in service to making and selling great wines. Scotts initiation into the wine business began as forced labor on his fathers Massey Ferguson tractor. Working his familys vineyard in

Calistoga soon led to stints as a cellar rat in a local winery where farming married production. After college graduation and working a year in France, he returned to Calistoga where he worked both in the vineyards and cellar of a local winery. 1992 saw Dutch Henry ready to open its doors with Scott as winemaker. Scott prides himself on being a wine grower rather than a wine maker, reflecting his personal philosophy that wines are made in the vineyard, not the cellar. A simple philosophy guides all of the wines: they must represent the vineyards where they grew. And the best way to do that is organic viticulture and other processes that minimize impacts during production. The results speak for themselves as Dutch Henry has been known since its inception as a hidden gem amongst the larger Valleys wineries. As you can tell, Dutch Henry is a zealously guarded semi-secret because theyve kept the focus on growing amazing grapes, minimally turning them into wines which express their origins, and making them available in an environment designed to enhance those very connections to the vineyards and surrounding Napa bounty. The next time youre in the north Valley, head to Dutch Henry to taste and experience what an emphasis on the grapes produces. Youll be glad you did. Enjoy!

Welcome to

YOUNTVILLE
At Jessup Cellars, Its All About the Experience
From the time you enter the stone-faced structure, past the outdoor fireplace and the native plants that adorn the front, Jessup Cellars tasting room is a wonderful experience. The wines are excellent, the people are friendly (while also being efficient and knowledgeable about their wines, art and hospitality in general). But there are some things you will find when you visit that set Jessup apart from the rest. As any staff member will proudly proclaim if asked, Jessup is all about the experience. Walk-in visitors are welcomed at the tasting bar, but for those seeking a more intimate occasion, the by-appointment semi-private tastings are the way to best enjoy the tasting room and staff. Taking place within Jessups art gallery, visitors get to enjoy a range of wines available only from the winery in a relaxed, no attitude environment. In fact, if you ask the right people around the Valley, youll hear the same response: its the staff at Jessup, their willingness to answer any question, their joy at getting to share what they love about the wines, which really makes the distinction. Jessup Cellars offers Napa Valley Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, a Napa Valley Zinfandel, a local Petite Sirah and a Cabernet Sauvignon produced using Napa Valley fruit. Jessup Cellars also makes a Merlot and two ports, one from Cabernet and the other from Zinfandel grapes. Every one of these limited-edition, hand-crafted bottlings are afforded equal amounts of care, attention, nurturing and concern, from vineyard to crush to aging and then on to the bottle. Consider a visit to this charming tasting room with its fine wines, gracious wine country hospitality, collection of art, handsome dcor and casual feel a true treat for all of the senses. To be able to sit, sample their exceptional wines along with a bit of food in such a setting, where you learn in such a way that it feels as if you are simply absorbing knowledge instead of just being taught, is wonderful way to spend an hour or so here in a small town that is a beacon to wine lovers and gourmets from

around the globe. And, it certainly warrants planning ahead and making that slight turn off of busy Highway 29 to experience it all for yourself. Jessup Cellars is open daily 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. (last seated tasting at 5 p.m., reservations are needed for seated tastings) and is located at 6740 Washington Street, Yountville; (707) 944-8523.

On Thursday, Furthur featuring Phil Lesh and Bob Weir, The Avett Brothers, The Black Crowes and Primus will energize the crowd on the first full night of BottleRock Napa Valley. Friday brings multiple Grammy Award winners and nominees, including The Black Keys, The Flaming Lips, The Shins, Alabama Shakes and more to the main stages. On Saturday the headliners include Kings of Leon, Jackson Browne, Dominari Janes Addiction, Bad Religion, Ben Harper & Charlie Musselwhite, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros supported by many others. Sundays schedule closes the weekend with a full lineup anchored by the Zac Brown Band, Cake, Train, and Rodrigo y Gabriela. An up-to-date festival lineup can be found online at www.bottlerocknapavalley.com, with updates as acts are added. Festival passes begin at $139 for a single day pass, and $399 for a four-day pass. Three-day passes are sold out. Individual tickets for the May 8 Macklemore and Ryan Lewis show are $29. Three-day and four-day passes also include the Macklemore and Ryan Lewis show. Passes are on sale at www.bottlerocknapavalley.com. The genesis of BottleRock springs from the great live entertainment gift that is the Uptown Theatre. The long awaited downtown Napa renaissance has inspired us to bring an eclectic and broad group of world class music and performers to our home town, said BottleRock Co-Founder Gabriel Meyers. The Napa Valley has set such a high standard for wine, food and hospitality that we feel that the time is right to add an amazing music festival to the mix. It will be great to see foodies, wine lovers and BottleRockers exploring the Valley by day and then coming together in downtown Napa for an evening of after parties. BRNV will be a different kind of music festival by virtue of its location in the Valley and Downtown Napa. Where else will you see winemakers, chefs and artists mingling with patrons before, during and after the music? The chance to raise money for all of our community and charitable partners is really exciting and motivating as well. Situated on three stages spread over 26 acres on the grounds at the Napa Valley Expo in the City of Napa, BottleRock Napa Valley

Wine, Food, Cycling and Adventure!
BY JOSH STEIN

Summer Solstice Concert


June 22, 6-10pm
$25 Wine Club Members (up to 2 tickets); $35 general public; $40 at the door Enjoy great music and dancing with Clif Bars own band Grove Valve Orchestra. They recently took home 1st place in the 2012 Fortune Battle of the Corporate Bands. This coveted award earned them a place in history at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. To keep you replenished from all that dancing, theyre providing an all-you-can-eat taco bar from Azteca Market and sweet treats from Karas Cupcakes. And to celebrate the summer solstice, we will be offering a very special limited release wine that will only be available for purchase the night of the event. Space is limited and we tend to sell out! Purchase your tickets online or at the Velo Vino tasting room.

Open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. 709 Main Street, St. Helena, CA 94574 (707) 968-0625 | www.cliffamilywinery.com

At first glance, its not surprising that Clif Family Winery, given its long-standing connections to the outdoors, would be involved in Napa Valley wine; after all, Napa is proof that preserving land for uses beyond the urban is not only financially beneficial but also good for the community. The pairing of wine and cycling is far less surprising within this context, which is why their Velo Vino tasting room on Main Street in St. Helena makes perfect sense: taste great wines, enjoy food and wine pairings and go on self-guided bike-based Valley tours. And trust me, experiencing Napa on two wheels sans engine is unlike anything else and way more fun than by convertible or limo if the goal is to feel part of the environment rather than day tripping from winery to winery. Clif Family Winery is owned by the same folks who produce Clif and Luna Bars, and while Valley land was purchased in 1997, the first wines were released only in limited distribution in 2006 with the goal to extend their successful business ideas into wine: longterm sustainability for the planet and the community so as to be able to appreciate and experience natures bounty in all its forms. The winery currently owns two Cabernet vineyards on Howell Mountain and a Zinfandel parcel in Pope Valley. Wines currently produced include The Climber Limited Release Red Blend, Rte. Blanc Sauvignon Blanc, Mendocino Gewrztraminer and Riesling; a limited release Clif Family Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel and Petite Sirah. The innovative St. Helena tasting room is open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and offers a range of tasting options. These include the Passo Gavia, which provides a selection of any four current release wines enjoyed at the tasting bar, at a more private tasting table, or on the garden patio; and the Le Maillot Jaune (The Yellow Jersey the ultimate symbol of cycling excellence), which includes all current release wines, a sampling of specialty food products, an espresso drink and a souvenir glass. Equally, the Rifugio Food & Wine Pairing includes a selection of five limited-release Clif Family wines paired with their Napa Valley specialty food products and a selection of three cheeses. While the Passo Gavia and Le Maillot Jaune tasting options do not require reservations, the Rifugio does, and given the winery's popularity and location, calling ahead never hurts, even if you're just down the street, to guarantee you get the personalized experience Clif Family wants visitors to have. Given the above, it should be clear why Clif Family Winery at Velo Vino is our tasting room of the week: lots of memorable and personalized tasting options, great wines and several unique ways to taste and enjoy the organic bounty. Do yourself a favor the next time youre in the midValley and looking for tasting options off the beaten path and unlike where everyone else is spending their time. Youll be very glad you did. Enjoy!

Robert Mondavi Winery Kicks Off 44th Annual Summer Concert Series
This June, Robert Mondavi Winery Martina McBride to perform at kicks off its 44th annual Summer Concert June 29 Cen'tanni concert Series with a festival featuring five top presented by Pandora Jewelry (Photo: Business Wire) musical acts. With June 18 marking what would have been the 100th birthday of Robert Mondavi, country singer and songwriter Martina McBride will begin the series with a performance that celebrates Robert Mondavis contributions to the wine industry throughout the Napa Valley and beyond. Now a much-anticipated wine country tradition, the annual concert series began in 1969 by Margrit Mondavi. In celebration of the 100th birthday of Robert Mondavi and presented by Pandora Jewelry, the festival begins June 29 with the Centanni performance and fireworks show, headlined by Martina McBride. McBride, recipient of a Grammy and four CMA Female Vocalist of the Year trophies, brings more than two decades of country music tradition to the Napa Valley. The concert series continues on July 6 with the Cool Climates of Carneros concert, headlined by alternative rock group Lifehouse. With a number of hit Billboard singles, including Hanging by a Moment, Lifehouses performance will showcase old favorites and a collection of songs from its newly-released album, Almeria. On July 12, the A Night Like No Other: Celebrating Fume Blanc concert will welcome pop-rock star Huey Lewis. Raised locally in Marin County, Lewis (of the platinumrecord-selling group Huey Lewis and The News) brings his American rock style to the winery as part of the Sports 30th Anniversary Tour. On July 13, Robert Mondavi Winery welcomes Bruce Hornsby and the Noisemakers for the Spotlight on Oakville celebration. Grammy-winning songwriter and former Grateful Dead member Bruce Hornsby brings his Noisemakers group to Napa for an expressive, soulful performance, displaying the groups eclectic and multi-genre encompassing sounds. The final performance of this years Summer Concert Series takes place on July 20 with ZZ Ward and Delta Rae for the Ode to To Kalon celebration. Blues-influenced singer-songwriter ZZ Ward and alternative-pop Americana folk group Delta Rae co-headline to combine their multifaceted sounds and energetic personalities. All performances begin at 7 p.m. and are held at the Robert Mondavi Winery on Highway 29 in Oakville, Napa Valley. Tickets are on sale now and prices vary by performance. For additional information and to purchase tickets, including General Admission, Reserved and Dinner seats, visit www.robertmondaviwinery.com, eventbrite.com or call 1-888-769-5299.

gLoriA Ferrer CAves & viNeYArds


Spring and summer seasons in Sonoma Wine Country offer endless days of blue skies best viewed from one of the green rolling hills, like the carefully chosen spot where Gloria Ferrer Caves & Vineyards resides in the bucolic Carneros region. Inspired by the Ferrer familys 11th-century farmhouse in Sant Sandurni dAnoia, Spain, the winery exudes Spanish charm while retaining the relaxed, casual elegance for which Sonoma County is known.

Where sonoma and spain Meet


As a tribute to the Ferrer familys more than 150 years of winegrowing and winemaking history, the annual Catalan Festival celebrates the cultural diversity of Spain. This multi-faceted experience tantalizes the senses with the traditional Spanish folklore, food, wine, lively classical guitar, passionate flamenco dancing all to be enjoyed July 20 & 21, at Gloria Ferrers 21 st Annual Catalan Festival. Guests will be transported to Spain for the day as they stroll the likes of Las Ramblas, the popular main street in Barcelona, and enjoy savory tapas, while observing paella and cooking demonstrations, and participating in educational seminars, a festive grape stomp, or while sipping the acclaimed Gloria Ferrer Carneros sparkling and estate varietal wines, as well as Spanish wines from the Ferrer familys global world of wines.

tour & taste


Between the Ferrer familys absorbing history of love and adventure, as well as winemaking expertise, theres more than meets the eye when it comes to Gloria Ferrer Caves & Vineyards. A tour of the winery is an excellent way to hear about the winerys origin, as well as explore the process by which the mthode champenoise sparkling wines are made. Three daily public tours are available at 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m., or choose one of three new private tours, including a delicious food and wine pairing option. Afterward, meander out onto the Vista Terrace and feel like an instant local. Take in the sweeping views of the valley, munch on the specially seasoned almonds made onsite each day, and sip some award-winning bubbly.

Awarding excellence
For more than 26 years, Gloria Ferrer Caves & Vineyards has cultivated Pinot Noir and Chardonnay for both sparkling and estate varietal wines from the Carneros region. Executive Winemaker Bob Iantosca and Winemaker Steven Urberg are regularly acknowledged for their wines, which offer a delicate combination of aromas, flavors and mouthfeel. Their care and expertise have garnered Gloria Ferrer more than 400 gold medals and 30 outstanding 90+ point ratings in the last five years alone, including most recently the Wine of the Year and Best of Show Sparkling Wine awards for the 2001 Carneros Cuvee at the 2013 Monterey Wine Competition.

JCB by Jean-Charles Boisset Collection is Opening New aWine Tasting Experiences


JCB by Jean-Charles Boisset is expanding its collection of tasting rooms to include locations in Santa Rosa, Sonoma, New York and Irvine, CA. Each limited-production wine within the JCB portfolio captures a unique balance of elegance and style, featuring a number that is symbolic of key moments in Boissets life. Until now, most of the wines could be experienced only through the JCB Tasting Room in Healdsburg or by private appointment at the JCB Lounge in St. Helena. On March 17, JCB moved its JCB Tasting Room from Healdsburg to Santa Rosa, where it is undergoing a dramatic evolution to reopen in this month as the JCB Winery. Located within the barrel cellar on the DeLoach Vineyards estate, the new JCB Winery will offer visitors with an appointment the opportunity to enjoy the wines precisely where they are crafted, from the vineyards where they are born to the barrels in which they are aged. Guests can choose to discover the portfolio with a guided tasting in the stunningly chic barrel room, featuring Bisazza chandeliers, gilded flooring and a beautiful communal marble table. The larger space will also allow for more in-depth experiences, inviting guests to blend and bottle their own Pinot Noir from some of Sonoma Countys most acclaimed vineyards, or embark on a sensual journey of music and wine, exploring the subtle interplay of music, emotion, sound and taste. To complement the JCB Winery in Santa Rosa and JCB Lounge in St. Helena, JCB by Jean-Charles Boisset will also open JCB Cellars in Sonoma this spring, an appointment-only bubble lounge featuring a selection of JCBs Cremants de Bourgogne in the historic cellars of the Buena Vista Winery. In addition, private JCB tasting lounges within Gaggenau showrooms in New York, NY and Irvine, CA are due to open in late summer/early fall 2013. For more information, visit www.jcbwines.com.

BY MIKE HYLAND

JACUZZI FAMILY VINEYARDS Open daily from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. for complimentary tasting 24724 Arnold Dr Sonoma, CA 95476 (707) 931-7575 | www.jacuzziwines.com Pizza in the Piazza Last Sunday of every month, 12-3 p.m. Wine paired with pizza made fresh in the Jacuzzi Family Vineyards kitchen with sustainably grown ingredients from Green String Farm. Maximum of 6 person groups only. $10 for a slice & glass of paired wine $30 for an 8" pizza & bottle of paired wine (pizza serves 4 guests)

At the gateway to the Sonoma Valley stands Jacuzzi Family Vineyards, an 18,000square foot Italian stone villa that pays homage to owner Fred Clines maternal grandfather, Valeriano Jacuzzi (yes, that Jacuzzi of spa and pump fame). The winery is modeled on the Jacuzzi family home in the northern Italian city of Casarsa in the Friuli region. Reminiscent of an Italian monastery, the building combines stone work and stucco and is built around a central courtyard. Traditional architectural details and natural materials add to the historic ambiance of the building. The interior features authentic Italian art, Venetian-style glass chandeliers, handmade furnishings, a 17-foot stone-cast fountain imported from Italy, as well as an 80-year old fig tree imported from Valeriano Jacuzzis ranch. Mature olive trees from Valerianos ranch also adorn the entrance. Truly more than just a winery and a tasting room, the facilities feature the Jacuzzi Family Museum that chronicles their immigration from Italy to the United States and showcases many family artifacts and inventions. Additionally, the beautiful chapel-like Barrel Room is a special event venue that can serve up to 150 guests and features vaulted ceilings, stunning stained glass windows and three large scale paintings of St. Teresa. Many weddings are held there. Additional special event venues include the Vineyard Vista that overlooks the adjacent wetland preserves, other vineyards and distant mountain ranges. The Tuscan Road is a wide, tree-lined path through the vineyards and is perfect for small, intimate lunches or dinner parties. The Grand Piazza features Italian stonework and five arched windows with a view to the vineyards (be sure to ask about Pizza in the Piazza every Sunday, paired with a great glass or bottle of wine). And lets not forget The Olive Press, an award-winning producer of California extra virgin olive oil. The Olive Press is housed inside the winery, offering guests a unique and educational experience featuring a tasting bar, gourmet gift shop and of course an olive-

pressing facility were guests can watch olive oil being made. Jacuzzi Family Vineyards and The Olive Press share the same roof the first combined winery and olive oil tasting room, gourmet shop, and production facility in Northern Californias wine country. Visitors to the winery can sample Jacuzzi Family Vineyards wines free of charge. The list of varietals includes Barbera, Chardonnay, Merlot, Pinot Grigio, Pinot Noir, Primitivo and Sangiovese. Winemaker Charlie Tsegeletos was raised in Northern California by Italian and Greek parents. He inherited his interest in wine from his great grandfather, Guippe Guidoitti, who grew grapes and made wine in the Guerneville area of Sonoma County in the 1930s.

After earning his degree in agricultural science and management/plant science from UC Davis, he began his winemaking career at age 24. After working at DAgostini Winery and Glen Ellen Winery, Charlie joined Cline Cellars in 2002, and is responsible for winemaking and production for the winerys Jacuzzi Family Vineyard, Cline Cellars and Oakley brands. When visiting Jacuzzi, make sure to check out the Neptune Fountain at the edge of the Piazza. With water spewing from the four large horses and four fish, Neptune sits atop the fountain with his trident and sometimes even a sexy pair of Italian sunglasses. Its a perfect spot to sip a glass of wine and enjoy a picnic lunch while taking in the breathtaking scenery.

The Wall Street Journal has (twice) called it the best value in wine country and Open Tables recent list of the top ten Wine Country Diners winners features the Mayo Reserve Tasting Room at number one, ahead of such full service area stalwarts as The French Laundry, Farmhouse Inn & Restaurant, the Restaurant at Meadowwood and Dry Creek Kitchen. So whats the big deal? Just an incredible food pairing of seven gourmet treats coupled with seven delicious wines, and all for the unbelievable price of $35 per person ($25 for club members). Mayo Family Reserve Room Chef Clayton Lewis has announced a new spring menu. The seven-course, sit-down menu celebrates spring with locally produced ingredients now coming into production along with seven Mayo Family Winery wines to demonstrate the various ways food and wine can compliment one another. Pairing our wines with great food is something our family has been doing since we started in 1993 with our first vintage, says Jeff Mayo. The sit-down Reserve Room food and wine pairing is offered Thursday through Monday, 10:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. and cost $35. Reservations are not required, but recommended. The Mayo Family Reserve room is located at 9200 Sonoma Highway in the village of Kenwood in Sonoma Valley. For more information see www.mayofamilywinery.com/reserve-room.

Sonoma Plaza, a National Historic Landmark, is originally home to the last of the chain of 21 California missions. Throughout its colorful history including the Bear Flag Revolt where the California state flag was first raised in 1842 the small-town epicenter is now home to some 25 gourmet dining establishments, 40 boutique shops and art galleries as well as 18 unique tasting rooms. A well-known tourist destination, visitors come to Sonoma to experience the idyllic Wine Country lifestyle. Sure, doublewide tractors may grace the two-lane Highway 12, wide-open ranchlands blanket the valley between towns, and wooly sheep keep weeds and grasses minimal in the vineyards. But, no doubt, you will also find countless award-winning wineries and world-class restaurants in Sonoma. Sonoma is all about life, about taste and enjoying each day.

Hardcore blues fans gather alongside music enthusiasts of all colors to share the privilege of seeing world class musicians in this intimate setting. The stage is set amidst beautiful lush scenery on a great grassy meadow surrounded by majestic redwoods that sit alongside a flowing creek. The acoustics are unmatched, and the crowd is amongst the friendliest, allowing for a perfect day of music. The SCBF is a locally produced event that embraces a green philosophy towards a sustainable community music festival. In addition to the world-class music, the food court features a variety of cuisines including vegetarian, ribs and seafood. Wine and beer are also available as well as a variety of nonalcoholic beverages. TO SAN JOSE
