Wineology

INTELLIGENCE FOR THE WINE CONSUMER

BY LEN NAPOLITANO

Is there an easy way to navigate a wine list?


Finding a wine that fits your needs for dinner is easy when you
have a foundation of wine knowledge, including familiarity with
grape varieties and awareness of the three most common list formats,
described below.
A progressive wine list categorizes the restaurants wines according
to style and arranges them starting with the lightest, most delicate
white wines, typically sparkling wines, and finishing with full-bodied,
intense red wines like Zinfandels, Syrahs, Petite Sirahs and blends of
these grapes. This is the easiest type of wine list to navigate if you are
still early in your journey to wine savvy. You simply choose a wine
either based on your mood, personal preference, or style that best
matches the intensity of flavor of the food that will pair with the wine.
A geographic wine list breaks down wines by country or wine
growing region. Most geographic wine lists are geographic-

progressive, categorizing wines first by country and appellation, and


then further sorting wines progressively, from light-body to full-body.
It helps to be familiar with the styles of wine and the popular grapes
from each region to be able to make an optimal choice of wine for
your meal.
A varietal wine list breaks down wines by grape variety, listing them
in progressive order of style, from light white wine to heavy red wine.
This is popular among restaurants with wine lists entirely comprised
of American-made wines. If imported wines are offered, a separate
grouping on the list displays those wines. To best navigate a varietal
wine list, become familiar with the true varietal character of each grape
so you know what to expect in terms of fruit flavor and mouthfeel. It
also helps if you know a little about wine appellations that are widely
acknowledged to produce great wines of a certain style.

Winegrowing Decisions

BY JOSH STEIN

Two Ways to Produce Bubbles, Two Very Different Results!


Ever been handed a random glass of
sparkling wine at an event or someones
house, from which you eagerly sipped,
expecting creaminess and length, but
which instead gave nothing but
disappoitment in the insipid, sweet,

bubbled white or pink grape juice actually


in the glass? No, it wasnt you, and no, all
bubbles are not created equal or equally.
Blame soda for ever making you think
otherwise since thats essentially how that
wine was made. There may be a lot of
wine with bubbles out there, but not all are
sparkling wines in the way we usually
assume.
Inexpensive sparkling wine tastes
cheap not necessarily because of
inexpensive grapes (though they dont
help) but because of an inexpensive
production process, called the Charmat or
bulk process, which accelerates the
fermentation and thus the carbonation,
creating an artificially-tasting mouthfeel on
the tongue. Through the use of glass-lined
pressure tanks, carbon dioxide can also be
injected into the wine, giving it
carbonation ala soda water. The result of
either process looks like sparkling wine,
but it sure doesnt give the same pleasures
since with wine the time taken in
production is reflected in the mouthfeel of
the finished wine itself. It is literally a case
of tongue beware!
Indeed, without considerable time on
the lees, the spent yeast and other
fermentation by-products, the creaminess
we associate with a sparkling wine wont be
present, which is why the bubbles dont
have the same mouthfeel. This latter,
methode traditionelle, process produces
the bubbles as part of a long, slow
fermentation on the yeast in individual
bottles and is what creates the luxuriously
creamy yet fruity essence of proper
sparkling wine or its various pseudonyms
around the world (cava, prosecco, Asti,
Champagne, etc.). Its no joke that patience
is rewarded in sparkling wines. The

timeframe is completely different for each


methodology, and that has the impact on
the finished product.
Equally, because the pressure tanks are
proportionally so much larger than a
sparkling wine bottle, the liquid-to-solids
ratio is far different. What produces the
creaminess of the mouthfeel in aged
sparkling wines is precisely the length of
time in contact with the fine lees thats
what forms the modern day frozen bolt
that each bottle releases during
disgorgement before final bottling.
Producers will sometimes move sparkling
wines into other glass sizes before bottling
in the finished glass for this reason: the
right ratio really matters to the aging. In
fact, all of the packaging for these wines
has to be specially designed because
sparkling wine is under pressure as this
natural carbonation slowly builds, hence
the familiar wire cage to make sure the cork
cannot shoot out of the bottle.
Thus, unlike a lot of other things in the
world today, you really do get what you pay
for with fine sparkling wines and their
natural bubbles produced the low and
slow way first recognized by winemasters
Francesco Scacchi and Dom Prignon all
those centuries ago in Europe. Any
sparkling wine made the traditional way
will indicate as such on the label because
the imposters legally cannot, and given the
time, expense and headaches involved,
those who can want credit where its due!
At your next event, ask to see the bottle
before you imbibe that random glass
handed to you and if anyone gives you a
funny look, now youve got a conversation
starter for those awkward event beginnings
when no one knows what to talk about.
Enjoy!

Candlelight Inn Napa Valley


A Romantic Rendezvous for Your Sweetheart and You
A first encounter with the Candlelight Inn is a bit like love at first sight! As you approach the
beautifully maintained and landscaped Tudor Mansion built as a residence in 1929 it appears to
straddle Easum Drive, a modest residential area. The street not far from Napas Town Center ends
as you park in the welcoming front courtyard. Right here, in the bustling epicenter of everything that
makes the wine country so desirable, the luxurious ten-room inn sits on its own private, one-acre, secluded park. It is bordered by Napa Creek and nestled beneath towering redwoods. Here, a spacious
pool/cabana is surrounded by meticulously landscaped flowering shrubs, bushes and rock gardens.
Noticeable sounds are birds and rustling leaves.
Originally designed for an active familys enjoyment, Candlelight Inn is now a private retreat for
discriminating visitors to the wine country. Many guests, who were smitten by that first impression,
now return year after year to relax and renew their enjoyment of all the region offers. On each visit,
there is more to do. In recent years, Napa has become a hub for worldrenowned chefs, and each year brings more restaurant openings. At the
inn, guests can enjoy complimentary wine and hors doeuvres as well as
snacks and drinks at all hours. A three-course breakfast featuring local
and seasonal foods is served each morning. Most rooms have a deck or
balcony, a two-person marble Jacuzzi tub and a fireplace. All have air
conditioning, TV, telephone and wireless internet access. Each is unique
and tastefully designed. An on-site concierge provides personalized dining and wine country touring recommendations. The concierge also
helps guide you to the numerous attractions of wine country hiking
and bicycling, kayaking, bird watching, cultural attractions, balloon rides
and spa services. The inn has received numerous awards and been featured in USA Weekend and National Geographic Traveler.
The Candlelight Inn is located at 1045 Easum Drive, Napa.
For reservations and to hear more about our packages, call

BREATHLESS
WINES
Celebrating Your Breathless Moments

Grab a picnic and enjoy the (often sunny) weather


at the Breathless Wines tasting room. Well provide the bubbly.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take,


but by the moments that take our breath away.
22

Three sisters, Sharon Cohn, Rebecca Faust and Cynthia Faust,


guided by the expert winemaking hand of Penny Gadd-Coster, created
Breathless Wines in honor of all who take no breath for granted. These
sparkling wines pair well with food and friends, and have been
awarded more than 20 Gold, Best of Class and 90+ point ratings since
the winerys inception just a few years ago.
We were inspired by our Mom, who lived each day to the fullest,
said Sharon Cohn. She was a teacher committed to giving back. Our
goal is to bring breathless moments to those in our community who
need it most.
A portion of Breathless proceeds goes to non-profits that support
women, children and health education, such as Healthcare Foundation
Northern Sonoma County. Each year, Breathless sponsors its major
fundraiser, Wine, Women & Shoes, and this fall, hosted a harvest
party at the Breathless pop-up tasting room in Geyserville to support
the organization. Executive Director Pat Callahan said, Breathless is a
wonderful partner They are not just willing, but excited to support
our cause and help out in any way they can.

WOODFOUR
BREWING COMPANY
Farmhouse-Inspired Beer in the Heart of Sonoma County
Woodfours Master Brewer, Seth Wood, carefully creates seasonal, yeastdriven beers, inspired by the timeless traditions of European farmhouse
brewers. He has an extensive background in winemaking and fermentation,
having studied fermentation science at CSU, Fresno and every single beer he
crafts clearly illustrates his skill. The beers here are truly unique.

Sophisticated, but Fun, with a West County Flair


Woodfour Brewing Company was founded in August of 2013. It is
located in The Barlow, which is a former apple processing plant. The
Barlow (which is actually a collection of large warehouses) maintains an
industrial vibe, along with a good dose of urban chic and a fun, funky,
open atmosphere. Woodfour Brewing Company exemplifies this attitude,
inside and out. The outside patio beckons on nice daysumbrellashaded tables and comfy outdoor furniture lure hungry, thirsty guests
into staying a while. Also on nice days, a couple of the walls roll up,
creating an airy indoor/outdoor feel. Even without the walls rolled up,
the overall feel inside is airy, clean, sophisticated and funone wall is
covered with a display of beer bottles and the kitchen is open for diners
to view while they are enjoying the outrageously good food (more on the
food in a minute).

Seasonal Beers, Wines & Menu Items, Oh My!


Everything on the menu (beer, wine and food) is based upon the season
and sourced from fresh, local ingredients. Their salad of crispy brussel
sprouts, for example, is highly addictive and patrons get really upset when
the menu changes and they cant order it. I liked that dish so much that I
came back two days later with a friend so she could experience it, too. Yum!
We shared a few other plates and everything else we ordered was absolutely
delicious as well.
The wine list is short, (this IS a brewery) but thoughtfully chosen, with a
tasty selection of affordable wines. The wine and beer offerings are
seasonally based as well, to best highlight the changing menu. The staff is
friendly, efficient and knowledgeable.

Theres Something For Everyone Here!


Woodfour Brewing Company offers up amazing food, beer, wine and
service, all in one place. In a nutshell (or pint glass) dont miss this place!

DOMAINE CARNEROS
'Tis the Season at Domaine Carneros
With the holidays approaching, visit Domaine Carneros and taste the
wines you plan to pour during the holidays or simply relax while taking
in the view and enjoying a glass of Sparkling wine or Pinot Noir on the
terrace. Situated atop a knoll in Napa in Northern California wine
country, the Domaine Carneros chateau (designed after the Taittingerowned Chateau de la Marquetterie in Champagne, France) is reason
enough to visit; a stunning landmark overlooking a pond and vineyards.
Domaine Carneros is well-known for their Sparkling wines made in
the traditional mthode champenoise and their handcrafted Pinot Noirs. All
wines are produced from the Carneros appellation with 95% of their fruit
coming from their estate vineyards. With a diverse portfolio ranging from
their classic vintage Brut Cuvee to Le Reve Blanc de Blancs and Pinot
Noirs like The Famous Gate, how do you choose what to serve this
holiday season?

Winemaker Eileen Crane Shares her Tips on Wines and Entertaining


Open daily from 10:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

When planning a special gathering for the holidays, there is nothing


like the sound of a Sparkling bottle of bubbly going pop to convey to
your guests that you are really happy to see them! Always start with your
best wine, setting the stage for a memorable night.

Wine Country This Week >> Wine Country News

How Much Bubbly Will You Need?


A bottle of Domaine Carneros Brut
Cuvee will give you six pours. Choose
an elegant flute or tulip glass. If you
are serving a party of eight, for
example, have at least two bottles on
hand. Eileen suggests an extra bottle
in the fridge, just in case. Heaven
forbid you run out.
What pairs well with Sparkling
wine? Eileen suggests raw oysters,
artisan cheeses, even popcorn or tasty
chips. As the evening progresses into
dinner, a fine Pinot Noir goes well
with almost everything from filet
mignon, beef stew, pork roast, turkey,
chicken to even venison. You just
cant go wrong with a good Pinot.

Holiday Gift Giving


The Perfect Wines for the Holidays
Eileen Crane has a few picks of her
own to offer this season: The 2012
Domaine Carneros Brut Ros and the
2013 Carneros Estate Pinot Noir. The
Ros was created with great balance,
emphasizing fruity and floral
characteristics. Lush aromas of red
berry and peach pie with a note of
lime zest are followed on a round
palate evoking plum, berries and a
hint of spice. The wine will continue
to develop depth and complexity as it
ages, so consider cellaring a few
bottles for the coming years.
The Domaine Carneros Estate Pinot
Noir packs a full range of flavors.
Beginning with the nose, one
encounters black raspberry, cherry and
plum along with savory notes of loamy
earth, cola and sandal wood. Ten
months of barrel age lends a sweetness
that balances the supple tannin from
this exceptional vintage producing an
intense full bodied Pinot Noir. The
hallmark of Domaine Carneros Pinot
Noir is the texture, and this wine
delivers with a supple and silky
mouth-feel guaranteed to please.
BY MONICA L. DASHWOOD

Don't forget, wine makes the perfect holiday gift. Who doesn't love a delicious bottle of wine in a wooden box or in
a gift bag? You will soon see, as you sample wines for that special occasion, Domaine Carneros can help you with
all your holiday gift giving!

Tastings, Pairings and Tours: Sample for Yourself!


Domaine Carneros invites you to select your holiday wines by drinking in the experience first. Choose from a
variety of tasting flights of their handcrafted sparkling and still wines; enjoy expertly paired local artisanal
cheeses, meats and smoked salmon plates; and take a behind the scenes look at winemaking on the Art of
Sparkling Wine tour. The wine educators will assist you every step of the way to ensure you leave confident of your
wine choices for the holidays by the end of your visit.

JUDDS HILL WINES Meet the Winemaker Alchemist


Eric Lyman, winemaker at Judds Hill in Napa, has a lot of
barrels on his hands, literally. When Eric is not perfecting select
wines for Judds Hill Winery, he is micro-crushing and customblending wines for over 100 small-lot private labels and commercial
wine brands. With a full plate, Eric remains focused on making the
best wines possible, hoping to meet or exceed vintner expectations
with his special magical touch.
How does he do it all? Eric smiled and gave a chuckle. I get
to think outside the box at Judds Hill and perform a lot of
winemaking trials. We often experiment with nontraditional
techniques to make the most interesting and finest wines possible,
Eric says. As for the large number of varietals he produces, he readily
admits, When Im making wine whether it be for Judds Hill or for
our Custom MicroCrush clients, understanding the vision, being
organized and open-minded are important, as well as having a great
winemaking team. Eric proudly states, he doesnt do it alone. I really
appreciate the open-minded environment that Judd (Finkelstein) has
created here. Having the freedom to make changes and try new
things makes it possible to keep raising the bar for Judds Hill
winemaking. He relies on a core group to get the job done, and
done well. My team here at Judds Hill is such an important part of
our winemaking process. Without Kenn Vigoda (Winemaker
Emeritus), Chuy Rivas (Cellar Master), Jorge Torres (Cellar
Technician) and Susie Dineen our MicroCrush Manager, I would
never achieve my goal at the end of each day: To make Judds Hill
successful and produce well made wines across the board.
Born in Petaluma, California, Eric spent much of his youth in
Puerto Rico with his family before moving to Napa in the early
1980s. He appreciated the cultural immersion that life in Puerto Rico
provided him and quickly learned the merits of being bi-lingual,
especially if one wants to work collaboratively with those working
hard in the wine industry.
Following high school, he joined the Navy and became a
cryptologic technician with the good fortune to be stationed on
Oahu, Hawaii for four years. After proudly serving his country, he
returned home to follow in his fathers footsteps in the
pharmaceutical industry. Over the next 18 years, he worked his way
up the ranks to become a process development specialist taking
bench scale products to commercial size. When the company he
worked for was bought and relocated to the East Coast, Eric decided
to keep his roots firmly planted in wine country with his family.
Nevertheless, career changes like Erics are not for the faint
of heart. Without the support and encouragement of his wife,
Donna, Eric wouldnt have had the courage to start over and follow
his aspirations, which forced them to make many sacrifices along the
way. In 2010, Eric rolled up his sleeves and got busy working as an
intern for Judds Hill taking his scientific background and applying
his clinical knowledge and experience to the art of winemaking.
During those years, Eric apprenticed under Kenn Vigoda, winemaker
at Judds Hill who definitely influenced his winemaking style.
Kenns generosity and willingness to share his years of winemaking
32

Winemaker Eric Lyman

knowledge have been incredible. Hes really done it all, having made
wine in Napa for more than 30 years, and his guidance has given me
a strong foundation in winemaking.
As Eric approaches the winter season, he is busy catching up on
all the tasks that are put on hold during harvest such as blending and
bottling, while keeping a close eye on the continual evolution of this
years vintage. Eric Lyman sat back and looked out over the vineyards
turning color, he is pleased with how far he has come in his
winemaking career. After spending so many years in the sterile and
emotionless pharmaceutical industry, its great to be in a feel-good
one. I want my guests to feel good the moment our wines touch their
lips.

Wines to Savor
For those coming to Judds Hill during the holidays, theyve got
to sample the Judds Hill flagship wine. At Judds Hill, Cab is King,
Eric says. You cant go wrong with our 2008, 2009 and 2010
Founders Art Reserve Cabernet. Judds Hill offers five reserve wines
on their tasting menu, comprised of five vintages: Meritage, Merlot
and the three Founders Art Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon. For those
wanting to expand their options, Judds Hill has over 24 different
bottlings to sample to suit everyones palate. Judds Hill is located at
2332 Silverado Trail in Napa. For more information, call (707) 2552332 or go to www.juddshill.com.

Calistoga
Bennett Lane Winery Announces Two New Tasting Programs for Visitors
Cozy Up To Calistoga Cab and Seated Tasting Debuts
Calistogas Bennett Lane Winery recently announced two new
additions to its tasting room offerings. The new programs provide
visitors to the boutique estate with a diverse range of choices,
each aimed at celebrating the winerys Napa Valley surroundings,
specifically Calistoga, plus their relaxed and friendly customer
service.
Autumns shorter days and cooler climes are the inspiration
for the winerys new Cozy Up To Calistoga Cab tasting.
Ongoing through December 31, the guided tasting, led by a
seasoned wine specialist, features four exceptional Cabernet
Sauvignons and Cabernet blends from Bennett Lane. After
warming up the palate with a taste of the popular Bennett Lane
Chardonnay, Sangiacomo Vineyard, Carneros, guests will be
treated to a fab-Cab wine lineup including, Maximus Red

vineyard-designated Bennett Lane Lynch Family Estate
Cabernet Sauvignon. As an added treat, a barrel sample of a
future vintage of the pinnacle Lynch Family Cabernet will be
available for enjoyment as well.

Served in the friendly and cozy surroundings of the Bennett


Lane Winery tasting room, its a great way to ward off autumns
chill, as guests delve into the unique flavor characteristics that
distinguish and define Cabernet Sauvignon from the Napa Valley
and especially those from Calistoga. The flight is $55 per
person for private groups of two to six people.
In addition to the seasonal Cozy Up To Calistoga Cab
tasting, visitors to the winery can also experience their Seated
Tasting option. This offering, available the year round, allows
groups of two to six people to do a deep dive into the winerys
more exclusive wine offerings under the guidance of a personal
wine specialist. Guests will be greeted upon arrival by their host
and seated at a private table. The specialist will then lead the
group through a tasting of four of Bennett Lanes top end wines,
including their Bennett Lane Napa Valley Chardonnay, Maximus
Red, Cabernet Sauvignon and Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
bottlings. In this intimate and relaxed setting (a bit like having a
personal wine steward in your own living room), there will be
plenty of time for tasting and exploring each wine in depth.
Moving at a leisurely pace, the personal wine expert will share
the full story on each bottling and answer any questions
regarding winemaking, fruit sourcing, cellaring and more. Priced

Up close and personal with rockstar winemakers

BY ALEXANDRA CHARSLEY

MARIO TEDESCHI
Tedeschi Family Winery
Mario Tedeschi grew up on the family farm in Calistoga, where his
grandparents settled in 1919 as Italian immigrants. A thirdgeneration winemaker, Marios passion for wine began in the
vineyards, while working alongside his father in vineyard
management. Mario helped build his familys winery from the ground
up, and soon began overseeing production with his brother. Making
wines our grandparents would be proud of is what we are aiming for;
traditionally made old-world wines. Today, Mario continues to be
heavily involved in farming his familys vineyards with his father, and
making the approachable, fruit-driven wines that the Tedeschi Family
is known for. Their flagship wine is the Tedeschi Estate Cabernet
Sauvignon.
WCTW: Whats your favorite local restaurant and what do you like to order?
MT: I like the Calistoga Kitchen and almost always order the
Hanger Steak.
WCTW: Where do you go for coffee and a pastry?
MT: The Village Bakery on Lincoln Avenue is my favorite.
WCTW: If you are meeting a friend for cocktails, where do you go?
MT: I like the bar at Brannans Restaurant.
WCTW: What do you do for fun?
MT: I go mountain biking in the Palisades, north of town and
snowboarding.
WCTW: Wheres the best place to relax in Wine Country?
MT: For me, its on my tractor in the vineyards.
WCTW: Whats your favorite meal and bottle of wine to enjoy at home?
MT: It is a big bowl of pasta with my familys homemade sauce
the recipe has been handed down for generations paired with
our Estates Cabernet Sauvignon.
WCTW: What other places do you like to hang out?
MT: When I can get out of the county I enjoy Fishermans Wharf
down in San Francisco.
WCTW: Whats an interesting fact that most people dont know about you?
MT: I really like working on old cars. When I was 17, I restored a
1969 Datsun Roadster that was my first car.

Tedeschi Family Winery


Tedeschi Family Winery is a very small, family-owned and
operated winery producing 2000 cases a year in the style of the old
world. Their flagship wine is made from the estates dry farmed,
single-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon. Emil Tedeschis grandparents
settled in Calistoga in 1919, emigrating from Pisa, Italy. Their son,
Eugene acquired the property that currently houses the winery and
38

family home in 1951, where the familys first grapevines were planted
among established fruit trees. In 1991, Emil, Eugenes son returned
as steward after co-founding one of Hawaiis most successful wineries:
Tedeschi Vineyards Maui. The Calistoga winery has become the
passion and single focus of Emils two sons Emilio and Mario, along
with a very interested daughter, Elaine.
Together, with Emilio acting as General Manager and brother
Mario as Winemaker, they have sought out and committed to
handcrafting old world-style wines from several small and
neighboring vineyards to produce Malbec, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Petite
Sirah, Primitivo, Chardonnay, Viognier, Ros of Pinot Noir, Port-style
wine and a Late Harvest wine of Sauvignon Blanc. All of the
vineyards are specially selected and hand-tended.
Tedeschi Family Winery is located at 2779 Grant Street in
Calistoga. For more information, call (707) 501-0668 or visit the
website at www.tedeschifamilywinery.com.

Founded in 1992, today Frank Family owns 380 acres of the finest vineyard land
in Napa Valley and has one of the biggest word-of-mouth followings in the wine
country. First constructed as the Larkmead Winery in 1884, the historic stone
building on the property was refinished with native sandstone from the nearby
hills in 1906. The massive stone edifice is considered one of the finest structures
in the Napa Valley; it appears on the National Register of Historical Places and is

Virginia Dare Winery Unveiled


Virginia Dare Winery has just released the Virginia Dare Showcase Wines. The inaugural vintages
from the newly named Virginia Dare Winery include the 2014 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir and
2014 Russian River Valley Chardonnay. After more than a year of speculation, American Pioneer Wine
Growers recently christened its Geyserville operation the Virginia Dare Winery in honor of the
influential people, places and stories that are part of the origins of early American winemaking.
A division of Francis Ford Coppola Presents, APWG released a series of four eclectic American
blends The White Doe, Manteo, Two Arrowheads, and The Lost Colony over the past year, as clues
leading up to the announcement of the winery name. Virginia Dare was the first child born in the illfated Virginia Colony, which was established in 1587 and found long-deserted in 1590.
The myth of Virginia Dare always intrigued me, said legendary film director Francis Ford Coppola,
owner of the Francis Ford Coppola Winery in Geyserville. The winerys new home in Geyserville is the
ideal location in the heart of American Wine Country to tell the origin stories of American wine.
Virginia Dare Winery is located at 22281 Chianti Road in Geyserville, CA 95441. The tasting room is
open daily from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
For more information, call (707) 735-3500 or go to www.virginiadarewinery.com.

Fritz Underground Winery Adds Hiking, Wine-and-Food Pairings


In addition to renovating its 1979
hillside tasting room, Fritz Underground
Winery in Sonoma Countys northern Dry
Creek Valley introduces two new visitor
experiences, a vineyard hike and an estate
wine-and-food pairing. Both allow visitors
to experience the unique aspects of the
Fritz Underground Winery property.
Built into a hillside, the tasting room has
been re-oriented so that guests now look at

the vineyards as they sample Fritz


Underground Winery wines. The expanded
U-shaped bar comfortably fits 25 people,
and the sleek elm-top bar and wrought iron
chandelier give the space a modern
sustainable atmosphere that is approachable
and inviting.
The new wine-and-food pairing features
Fritz Estate wines with local artisan cheese
and meats, as well as seasonal or preserved
ingredients from the Fritz Estate gardens.
The tasting is offered by appointment only ($20).
The 90-minute Fritz Vineyard Hike explores the 112-acre Fritz
Estate and the winemaking process with a journey through the
vineyards, the estates organic garden, and the majestic redwoods,
finishing with a detailed tour of the underground winemaking
facility and a seated tasting on the outdoor patio. Guests should
dress accordingly, with hike-appropriate footwear. The vineyard
hike is offered daily at 10:30 a.m. by appointment only ($45).
Fritz Underground Winery is located at 24691 Dutcher Creek
Road in Cloverdale, CA 95425. For more information, call (707)
894-3389 or visit the website at www.fritzwinery.com.

SONOMA COUNTY << Wine Country This Week

Young Talent takes over the Kitchen at Mayo Family Winery Reserve Room
Chef cooks unforgettable dishes for winery owner and is hired on the spot
Mayo Family Winery announces the hiring of new Executive
Chef Samuel Frumkin, who took over the operations and kitchen at
the Reserve Room on Highway 12 in Kenwood in October.
The Mayo Reserve Room takes guests on the ultimate wine
country tasting journey unlike anything theyve experienced in a
wine tasting room before. Not only can guests taste through reserve
label wines, they are taken on a food and wine adventure with
Executive Chef Samuel Frumkins custom menu.
Mayo Family Winery owner Jeffrey Mayo began the search for a
new Executive Chef after former chef Clayton Lewis left to open his
own restaurant at the Tomales Bay resort and interviewed multiple
candidates. Coming to the interview process late in the game, Chef
Sam Frumkin was given the task of creating two dishes to pair with
the Mayo Reserve Chardonnay and Zinfandel wines. Using his
culinary experience and expertise from the Culinary Institute of
America, Olivia in Austin Texas, Eleven Madison Park in
Manhattan, and finally at the Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inns Sante
restaurant, Frumkin created a Roasted Fennel Vichyssoise for the
Chardonnay and a Chinese five-spice brisket, each pulling from
personal and professional experience, and was offered the job on
the spot. Both dishes will be featured in the November/December
menu.
Not only were the flavors Sam was able to create in these two
dishes unlike anything I had ever had, the presentation, correlating
stories and feel of genuine hospitality in his interview are what
drove me to offer him the job, said owner Jeffrey Mayo. I am very
54

excited for Sam to further explore his talents in food, wine and
hospitality and create memorable experiences for our guests month
after month.
The menu at the reserve room will change every two months,
with inspiring new dishes and wines served for guests to enjoy.
Ive been working in some of the best kitchens my entire life,
but always loved the home style, feel-good cooking my family
created at home, said Chef Sam Frumkin. The inspiration for my
first menu came from that upbringing, with some of my best
memories stemming from big meals with lots of wine, and most
importantly, family. Theres always been food and family, so now
sharing my cooking with others is an amazing opportunity to do
what I love. I want to bring dishes that really demonstrate
technique, but with simple and approachable dishes. A home style
cooking style but in a refined context.
Along with the hiring of Chef Sam, Mayo Family Winery
welcomes Sous Chef Sara Martinez, a recent graduate of the
Culinary Institute of America at Greystone, to join Sam in the
reserve room kitchen.

Mayo Family Winery


A family-friendly and down-home place to enjoy a bit of wine
country, Mayo Family Winery completed its 22nd harvest in 2015.
Offering more than 20 wines, a dog-friendly tasting room and
family-style wine club events, Mayo Family Winery is open year
