Quality Wines All Under $25 at Wine Garage, Calistoga
Hidden next to a dilapidated ’40s-era former filling station on Highway 29 in Calistoga lies the Wine Garage. A unique wine shop in Napa Valley that retails all wine in the store under $25. Sound crazy? Its true. And the proprietors Todd and Joy Miller, have hit on a niche in the Valley that had been very missed by the locals there. “There are a lot of winemakers here that can’t afford to drink the wine they make” says Miller. “That’s crazy, yes, but who can afford to drink a $65 bottle with dinner every night?” Many people miss the Wine Garage on the first try upvalley, but the search is well worth it. Miller stocks wine from all of California’s wine growing regions including an large assortment from Napa and Sonoma counties and other California appellations. When he first sought out buying the initial inventory, “I enlisted a local farmer buddy and his 15-foot box van and off we went all over California hunting down the deals. I tried to seek out the small producers who didn’t have distributors so I could pass the savings on to my customers.” And Miller did just that. His store is stocked with high-quality juice all under $25 and all are unique. Most labels in the shop are unrecognizable – but all pass the same test; everything passes over Miller’s lips before he makes a buy. “If I don’t love it, I don’t buy it, period. Sometimes I will taste over a hundred wines in one day, load up the truck and haul it up to Calistoga, unload at the store, and maybe I will crawl in bed by 3 a.m. Needless to say my buddy bowed out of the deal after their second trip. I initially recruited him on a ‘hey lets go wine tasting in Santa Barbara’ until he realized how much work it entailed. Poor guy, he had to be at the farm at 5 in the morning.” It is all worth it. Millers’ customers love him. He has a unique ability to hear a verbal description of a customer’s favorite wine and translate that into a recommendation for sometimes a third of the cost. “I have people all over the country that use me as their local wine shop. I ship right to their door – and the cost of the shipping is a drop in the bucket compared to what they save on the cost of the wine. Miller gets deals on Napa wine too. “I have winemakers from small wineries stop in every week saying ‘I have something that will fit into the store,’ if they only have 15 or 25 cases of an end-of-vintage wine – I am the perfect outlet for them.” So head up to the Wine Garage and check out the best deals in the Valley at 1020 Foothill Blvd (Hwy 29), Calistoga, CA 94515. For more information, call (707) 942-5332. You can also check out the website at winegarage.net.

INTELLIGENCE FOR THE WINE CONSUMER by Len Napolitano

How long should I allow my red wines to age before drinking them?
There probably isn’t a red wine on the market today that can’t be enjoyed on the same day you buy it. The question that wine lovers and collectors often ask is, “how much will this wine improve if I let it age?” Knowing in advance when the point of maximum performance arrives is a guess on the part of the wine critic, the collector and even the producer. That’s why some wine reviews also suggest when the wine will be best to enjoy, in terms of years ahead the vintage. It doesn’t mean that the wine can’t be enjoyed immediately. If you are anxious to drink it, go ahead and indulge. If you are patient and can wait a few years or more, your experience may be enhanced significantly. Or, it may not. I would estimate that 80 percent of the red wine I drink in the course of a year is of the current vintage on the shelf of a typical retailer, which is typically two years old. In my personal wine collection, however, about 80 percent are from vintages no longer widely available. On certain occasions throughout the year I will enjoy one of these older wines, which probably average about six years old. In almost every instance, my older vintage wines will offer increased complexity and more interesting aromas than my current vintage wines. I enjoy the newer wines, but just not as much as I do the older ones. The wine aging process is actually the mix of air and wine inside the bottle, the slow infusion of tiny amounts of oxygen into the bottle through the cork, and the binding of tannin molecules with color pigments. This process tends to soften the wine and add complexity to its aromas. A fine red wine that ages for many years, or decades, in the bottle will one day achieve its peak balance of its four basic components-fruit, alcohol, acidity and tannin. One of the fun aspects of collecting wine is guessing when that day has arrived. This is why wine collectors will purchase multiple bottles of the same wine with a plan to drink one early and put the rest away in storage. Then, over the next few years, the other bottles are opened, tasted, and a determination made as to whether or not the additional in bottle has had a beneficial effect.

New Winery, Brewery, Foods Facility Certified LEED Platinum for Environmental Excellence at UC Davis
UC Davis’ new winery, brewery and food-processing complex recently received official LEED Platinum certification – the highest environmental rating awarded by the U.S. Green Building Council. Certification establishes the new building as the first LEED Platinum winery, brewery or food-processing facility in the world. A public grand opening for the new $20 million, 34,000-square-foot teachingand-research complex is slated for Friday, January 28. The new facility, located within the Robert Mondavi Institute for Wine and Food Science, exceeded the requirements for LEED Platinum certification, earning 60 points in a ranking system that requires 52 points for Platinum certification. (LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design.) The facility houses teaching and research activities for the UC Davis Department of Food Science and Technology, and Department of Viticulture and Enology. It is a complex building that was designed with a focus on water and energy use. Among all existing LEED Platinum buildings, it is one of the most extensive in its use of rainwater and on-site energy. Rainwater is being captured, stored and used for landscaping and toilets. Another of its unique features is a system for capturing carbon dioxide from all wine fermentations. The new complex was funded entirely by private donations; no state or federal funds were used in its design or construction. UC Davis is now raising funds to complete an auxiliary building to house the equipment that will make it possible to capture, store and recycle rainwater as the source of processing water, which, in turn, will be captured and reused up to 10 times, achieving remarkable savings in water use. The new winery, for example, will only use about one-fifth the amount of water used in a traditional winery. Such systems are intended to eventually make the new facility self-sustaining in water and energy use. The new auxiliary building also will make it possible to further protect the environment by sequestering all carbon dioxide captured from on-site fermentations. The new facility is only the second UC Davis building to complete the certification process. It joins the LEED Platinum UC Davis Tahoe Center for Environmental Sciences, completed in 2006 in Incline Village, Nevada. The team of architects, engineers and builders for the new UC Davis building has included the following firms, all headquartered or with offices in Northern California: BNB Norcal; Flad Architects; Frank M. Booth Inc.; Red Top Electric; KPW Structural Engineers; Creegan + D'Angelo Engineers; and The HLA Group, Landscape Architects & Planners Inc.

Exploring the Joys of Russian River Wine Road
by Charles Neave
From “A” (the Alderbrook and Armida Wineries) to “Z” (Zinfandel, one of the grape varietals that made the region famous) the Russian River in Sonoma Country is one of the treasured segments of this part of California. Known to some, and close kept by those who do, it is cache of fine wine and passionate winemakers. It is something you want to keep secret, but that you also cannot resist sharing. In between there is a whole roster of names, of wineries both large, such as FerrariCarano, Kendall-Jackson Healdsburg (and the esteemed Kendall-Jackson Wine Center near Santa Rosa), Rodney Strong Vineyards, and the historic and fascinating Hop Kiln Winery, which, among so many, is a personal favorite. In the area (the town of Healdsburg, for the most part, and the surrounding area) there is a long list of famous gourmet restaurants, intimate cafés, bakeries and plenty of gourmet delis. You can tour a long list of country back roads through pastoral vineyards and rural farms, take an exhilarating hot air balloon ride (be prepared for an early departure, though) take a lingering canoe ride down the Russian River, bike, play a round or two of golf, enjoy a picnic, beachcomb the stunning Pacific

Ocean Sonoma county coast, hike through the majestic, towering redwood forests, shop art galleries, boutiques and jewelry stores, indulge in a relaxing spa and maybe a couple of games of tennis. For that matter an outing as simple as a walk around town – or into town – is very fulfilling. Even for veteran wine travelers already well acquainted with the Wine Country of Northern California, the Russian River Cali-

fornia Wine Road is likely to be uncharted territory that is sure to give visitors a fresh sense of discovery or rediscovery. Along the way are some of California’s oldest wineries, run by vintners whose commitment to tending the vines and producing world-class wines, true to the appellation, runs back generations. The Wine Road organization was formed and over the intervening years has certainly become one of the greatest champions of this hallowed and respected area. Founded more than three decades ago, the Wine Road is an association of wineries and lodgings in the Alexander, Dry Creek, and Russian River Valleys of Northern Sonoma County. From its modest beginning as an organization of nine wineries, it has grown into a spirited constellation of more than 150 wineries and 50 lodgings. It’s not actually a “road” in the sense of a single, continuous stretch of paved highway, but more of a treasure map to the many jewels nestled among the hills and valleys of a region where fresh air, fine wine and exquisite cuisine await those who traverse it. This lively and committed organization has created a myriad of programs, events and services certain to enhance any visitor’s experience of the region, among them three major events: “Winter Wineland,” “Barrel Tasting

and “A Wine & Food Affair” (schedules and more information can be found at www.wineroad.com). January 15 and 16 is the 19th Annual Winter Wineland, which is a celebration of wine and the arts. It is a unique and great opportunity to meet winemakers, taste limited production wines, new releases or library wines. Some wineries will offer food pairings and others will have tours. Each participating winery will either host an artist for the weekend, so you will enjoy their fine-art, or the winery will have an educational display to help you learn about vineyard management or winemaking The price of the ticket will include wine tasting at all of the participating wineries for the weekend. The wonder of it all is not just in the great natural beauty, which is there in abundance over all, nor even in the vast variety in varietals. Though some do dominate there is an abundance of very enjoyable choices. And there is no better place to enjoy them in the wineries, restaurants and other welcoming spots along this beautiful stretch of “road.” Download the detailed program to see exactly what each winery will offer for the weekend … then plan your tasting adventure. The very reasonable ticket price will include wine tasting at all of the participating wineries for the weekend and the event does not take place at one location. You travel from winery to winery, visiting the ones you

are interested in exploring. Advance online ticket prices are: $45 weekend, $35 Sunday only, $5 for designated drivers. At the door prices will be $55 weekend, $45 Sunday only, $5 for designated drivers. A complimentary Wine Road map is the key to exploring the glories of the area and is also available at www.wineroad.com. The area is nothing if not rich in history. The Russian River takes its name from the Russian fur trappers who established a trading colony in the early nineteenth century, and following on their heels were the French and Italian immigrants who brought their own centuries-old traditions of winemaking to the area. Wine has been made in Sonoma County for over 130 years. Even during the Prohibition years (from 1920 until its final and joyously welcome repeal in 1933) many wineries continued to make wine for “medicinal” land “sacramental” purposes. Quotation marks are very intentional. Today, some of the many stars of the regions include Christopher Creek Winery, Balletto Vineyards, the stunning deLorimier Winery, Fritz Underground Winery (the name says it all), Hauck Cellars , the very, very unique Martin Ray Winery, the architecture and wine of Matrix Winery, Mazzocco Sonoma, Moshing Vineyards, plus Sausal Winery and the revered Since Vineyard & Winery.

FREESTONE VINEYARDS
The Phelps Family on the Sonoma Coast
Driven by the goal of producing world-class Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, the Phelps family and management team of Joseph Phelps Vineyards began developing 100 acres of vineyards near Freestone, California in the Sonoma Coast AVA in 1999. Late in 2005, construction began on a new winery which was completed in time for the 2007 harvest. This state-of-the-art facility allows the winemaking team to handcraft wines in small lots in the finest Burgundian tradition. The winery is located in the midst of the estate vineyards and is designed to blend into the landscape. Taking advantage of the building’s three stories, the force of gravity is harnessed to transport grapes to fermenters and fermented wine to barrels. The subterranean level is an ideal cellar environment where temperature and humidity are controlled naturally with minimal energy requirements. The Freestone Vineyards Estate on the Sonoma Coast is comprised of three distinct properties: Pastorale, Quarter Moon and Ferguson Vineyards. The three vineyards lie only five to eight miles from the Pacific Ocean, east of Bodega Bay, providing a long, cool growing season. Goldridge soils, careful attention to clonal and rootstock selections and use of biodynamic farming principles result in Chardonnay and Pinot Noir that is distinctly Freestone. Biodynamic farming maintains, preserves and ecologically enhances the natural vineyard environment by combining natural farming practices – composting, recycling nutrients, carefully managing irrigation and using cover crops. Simple natural non-toxic biological field and foliar spays are utilized to good effect for deficiencies and seasonal changes. These efforts contribute to the cultivation, preservation and enhancement of soil health, which in turn improve fruit quality – all while respecting the environment. You simply have to come and taste the wines! Joseph Phelps Vineyards is known internationally for Insignia – the first proprietary Bordeaux blend produced in California, and other Bordeaux and Rhône varietal wines. (Phelps was the first producer of Syrah in California and one of the first for Viognier.) Joe Phelps challenged his team to find the best place to grow Pinot Noir and Chardonnay because he loves these wines. Joseph Phelps Vineyards produced Pinot Noir in its early years (until 1980) and has produced Chardonnay continuously since its founding in 1973. But if you know anything about the wines from Joseph Phelps Vineyards, you will understand that Joe is constantly searching for the best places to grow grapes in order to make the best wines possible. This is what led him and the Phelps family to the Sonoma Coast. That is the hallmark of the wines from Joseph Phelps Vineyards and now, Freestone Vineyards. And when you taste the wines, you will understand Joe’s passion for excellence. So, we invite you to come and taste our Fogdog, Ovation and Freestone Chardonnay and our Fogdog and Freestone Pinot Noir. Single Vineyard wines from Pastorale and Quarter Moon are now also being produced in small lots. The Freestone Vineyards Guest Center is open Thursday through Monday, 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. No appointment is necessary but for groups larger than six persons, we ask for a phone call ahead of time, if possible. The Guest Center offers seated tastings and has picnic tables available as well. Every “Second Sunday” of the month the Guest Center features local artists, musicians or food specialties of Western Sonoma County like fresh oysters, artisanal cheeses, paella and barbecue. Check the website: www.freestonevineyards.com for event postings, availability and directions, or call (707) 874-1010 for information.

Here is what you can expect the next few months at Freestone:
• Saturday-Monday, January 15th, 16th and 17th – we will be participating in the Wine Road’s Winter Wineland event. For tickets, go to www.wineroad.com/winter_wineland/annualevents/1 We will also be featuring the art of Sondra Barrett during Winter Wineland. • Sunday, February 13th – stop by for our “Valentine’s Day” special. • Sunday, March 13th – enjoy a barrel tasting of the 2010 Freestone wines. • Sunday, April 10th – wine release of the 2009 Fogdog wines with special food pairing for the release. You may also taste the Freestone wines if you are in Napa. Call 1800-707-5789 for an appointment at Joseph Phelps Vineyards, 200 Taplin Road, St. Helena.

Winemaker Profile: Moshin Vineyards

RICK MOSHIN
by Sue Straight, The Wine Wench
Mad scientist, philosopher, building contractor, math teacher, poker shark, Pinot Noir fanatic, farmer and winemaker – Rick Moshin is all this and more. He is a fascinating guy to talk with about a myriad of subjects and he really enjoys sharing his knowledge. Starting in 1979, he taught Math at San Jose State, and did so until 2005. Here’s a random cool factoid – Rick did his Master’s thesis on the life and death of stars. Just had to share that… Like so many others, Rick’s journey to making wine and ultimately owning his own winery was a long and winding road. Back in the 1970s, he worked at Wine Supply West, a beer and wine supply store for home brewers and winemakers. He started out brewing beer at home, until one fateful day when wine’s siren song lured him into making wine in his garage. His first homemade wine was a Chenin Blanc. He quickly graduated to making Cabernet Sauvignon, from top-notch Rutherford fruit. Rick was one of the original “garigista” winemakers back in the 1980s. From 1989 to 1997 he made wine with Gary Farrell at Davis Bynum Winery. He also made wine at Porter Creek Winery and Hallcrest Winery before he had a winery to call his own. During this whole time, he was still teaching. In 1989, he purchased his first ten-acre lot and began farming it. In 2000, he purchased the property on Westside Road outside of Healdsburg where his winery and home are now located and started drawing up plans for the winery. And what a winery it is! Rick designed an innovative four-tier gravity flow system that allows the grapes to be processed on the top level, then as the winemaking process continues, the wine is gently moved down level by level without using pumps (gentle handling of grapes/wine is imperative to maintain the highest possible quality). Since Rick’s specialty is Pinot Noir, and it tends to be a difficult diva of a wine, this gentle gravity flow system is the absolute best for crafting incredible Pinots. The winery and tasting room (the tasting room is gorgeous, by the way!) are constructed from wood recycled from an 80-year-old barn, the winery is 70% solar powered and even generates its own nitrogen! Construction was a family affair – Rick and his family actually did a lot of the building. They are a hands-on kind of clan! Construction started in 2001 and was completed in 2005. Rick now owns and farms 28 acres, using Biodynamic® methods. He is a true steward of the land and his wines reflect his passion and dedication. I tasted a few wines and was really impressed with every wine I tasted. I even bought a bottle of 2008 Pinot Noir, Bacigalupi Vineyard for $45 (a steal!), which he autographed for me. Hazard of the job, I guess, but Moshin Vineyards wines are too good to pass up! If you are visiting Sonoma County, drive out Westside Road and visit Moshin Vineyards. You’ll be glad you did!

Tasting Room of the Week:

Zina Hyde Cunningham Winery
by Michelle J. Baker
Step into the tasting room at Zina Hyde Cunningham and you step back into the rich history of five generations of a single family with an enduring passion for growing grapes and making wine. The story of Zina Hyde Cunningham starts out way back in 1849, when the intrepid young teenager Zina left his home in Maine in search of gold in the foothills of California. With little luck in finding gold, Zina moved to San Francisco, where he set up a blacksmith shop. By 1859 he abandoned city life to head up to Windsor, where he purchased a 160-acre ranch and began to grow Zinfandel and Alicante grapes. Zina was drawn to the beauty of Mendocino County, and began planting vines in Ukiah, which he would call home for the remainder of his life. Zina’s son William and grandson Lloyd carried on the family tradition of growing grapes and making wine until Prohibition in 1919. Like many other winery owners of that era, Lloyd was forced to shut down the family’s successful winery, sell some of his crafted bottlings that will delight everyone from the delicate Pinot Noir lover to teethstained Petite Sirah fanatics. Mark your calendar for January 21-30, 2011, when Zina Hyde Cunningham Winery in Boonville will be celebrating the Mendocino Crab and Wine Days Festival with their own delicious crab and wine pairings daily. On January 22, the winery is having a crab-inspired Winemaker Dinner hosted by Winemaker Steve Ledson, who is also the owner of Ledson Winery and the great-great grandson of Zina Hyde Cunningham. All proceeds from the Winemaker Dinner will be matched by the Ledson Harmony Foundation and donated to the Anderson Valley School District to help buy computers and other supplies for the classroom. To make a reservation for the January 22 winemaker dinner, RSVP to (707) 895-9462 or e-mail: info@zinawinery.com.

land and replant the rest of his vineyards to prunes, walnuts, apples and pears. In 2004, Lloyd’s son Bill Cunningham resurrected his family’s winery, aptly named after his trailblazing great-grandfather Zina. This rendition of Zina Hyde Cunningham Winery focuses on producing small lots of ultrapremium wines that are only available in the Boonville tasting room. The winery produces an impressive breadth of varietals from a crisp yet tangy and delicious Sauvignon Blanc to a luscious and decadent Orange Muscat to sip after any meal. In between, are more than a dozen hand-

Exceptional Wines, Over the Top Hospitality
and most of these awards are Best in Class, double gold and gold. “We are thrilled that we have just won gold at the New York’s International for their 2006 Cab,” said Frank Vezér. Also, at a blind tasting recently held at the elegant Bay Leaf Restaurant in Napa, Vezér’s 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon was unanimously preferred over a famous 97 point Napa Valley Cabernet. One cannot write an article on Vezér and Suisun Valley without mentioning the La Salette, if it is not already known as the world’s most exquisite Petite Syrah blend, it is certainly known as the world’s most expensive, where a magnum of La Salette sold to two investors for $30,000 in a live charity auction. Have no fear though, in the tasting room a bottle is far more affordable price, though it is indisputably a wine for those special occasions. But Vezér is all about hospitality and family, and this is the main reason why Suisun Valley is being recognized as the “wine hospitality valley.” The Vezér family warmly invites you to visit all of the twelve wineries in the valley, and to make it a full weekend destination. You can even plan a dinner at the Vintage Café, right next to one of the Vezér tasting rooms, and spend the night in one of the areas many fine hotels. For more information on this special part of the Northern California Wine Country, go to SuisunValleyTheNapaBackroad.com. And be sure to visit the Vezér website at www.VezerFamilyVineyard.com.

by Charles Neave
Though often – too often – overlooked, Suisun Valley is one of the last of California’s remaining hidden gems, despite the fact that it is barely a dozen miles from the City of Napa. But for years Suisun has been known as a trusted and quality stand-in to the star winemakers of Napa and Sonoma. Now, with the recent introduction of Frank and Liz Vezér and their best friends and partners, Sam and Mimi Mizirawi, things are changing. To begin with, the Vezer’s bought the 30-acre ranch and vineyard formerly contracted to the “Sin Zin” people and “Ravenswood.” That was followed in very short order by their purchase of the entire Western “Pony Express” village of Mankas Corners, a property with 160 years of colorful history. Then they acquired Suisun Valley’s Crown Jewel, the Blue Victorian in the very heart of this valley of rolling hills, farms, pasture and vineyards. Also a 160-year-old homestead, it has towering century-old date palms and a gorgeous and, yes, a very blue Victorian manor. All three locations are working winery sites, with some of the most unique and hospitable tasting rooms you have ever experienced, stocked with an array of good wines and staffed by people who are simply glad you stopped by and who want to share the area’s history, stories and wines with you. However, what is the best part about the Vezér Family wineries and this tranquil valley are their wines. There are the crisp, tropical fruit whites that even red wine drinker would love, and then there are the Vezér reds. Reds that are lush, jammy and with a silky smooth finish. And all their wines pair perfectly with food; in my mind the ultimate test of any wine. All of the wines from Vezér and Blue Victorian have won awards,

Phifer Pavitt Winery Opens to the Public
Phifer Pavitt Winery is now open to the public for tours and tastings, by appointment only. The tasting room, located at 4660 Silverado Trail (just north of Dunaweal, in Calistoga), welcomes visitors Monday through Saturday for tastings either at 11 a.m. or 1 p.m., at a cost of $25 per person. To make an appointment, contact (707) 942-4787 or Suzanne@phiferpavittwine.com. “If these walls could talk…” says Suzanne Phifer Pavitt, explaining the history of the winery’s tasting room. Winery and tasting room in one open space, the building is a nineteenth century barn which the Pavitts moved from its former home in Franz Valley (east of Napa Valley) to this spot on the Silverado Trail in 2005. Artful touches include light fixtures made from “historic” re-purposed barbed wire, seating on burlap-covered hay bales, life-size drawings of cowgirls on sliding blackboard doors and an unusual tasting “bar” – a fallen slab of walnut wood with naturally jagged edges. Suzanne Phifer Pavitt and her husband, Shane Pavitt, established the winery in 2005 with their first release, 2005 Date Night. Winemaker Ted Osborne sources the grapes from 15-year-old vines from Temple Family Vineyards in Pope Valley (Napa Valley AVA), which is organically farmed. Less than 400 cases a year are produced; currently available is the 2007 vintage, which sells for $75 at the winery or on the website at www.datenightwines.com. Date Night is in very limited distribution in only a handful of cities around the country.

Suzanne Phifer Pavitt and Shane Pavitt came up with the idea of calling the wine “Date Night” over several years of date nights. The practice of regular date nights with your spouse is newly in the news – whether it’s Michelle and Barack Obama or Claire & Phil Foster in the recent movie Date Night or the Pavitts – who tuck their young sons in before enjoying date nights in Napa Valley restaurants ranging from Calistoga to old-town Napa. As they like to say, “when is the last time you had a date night?!”

Chef Charlie Palmer’s Pigs & Pinot Epicurean Benefit
Featuring culinary stars and wine experts from across the country
On Friday and Saturday, March 18 and 19, Chef Charlie Palmer will once again bring together culinary and wine elites from around the country to participate in the sixth annual Pigs & Pinot weekend (www.pigsandpinot.com). Held at the award-winning Hotel Healdsburg, located in tranquil Healdsburg where three of California’s most important wine producing regions unite – Dry Creek, Russian River and Alexander Valley – this celebration has become a tradition amongst pork and wine enthusiasts who are eager to experience the creations of more than 60 wineries and 10 chefs who showcase their talents each year. The 2011 Pigs & Pinot event will feature an exciting line-up of food and wine seminars, tastings and cook-offs, and all proceeds will benefit Share Our Strength® and local Healdsburg education, including The Healdsburg Education Foundation, St. John School and The Healdsburg School. And, to continue the support of the local community, Chef Palmer is once again raising two suckling pigs which he has personally selected and is nurturing in the gardens of Quivira Vineyards, a Biodynamic® vineyard, closely cared for by Quivira’s head gardener Andrew Beedy. The pigs are fed Dry Creek Kitchen vegetable trimmings as well as spent grain and barley from nearby Bear Republic Brewing Company and finished in the European style, with an acorn diet to produce a richer marbling and slightly sweet fat. The meat will be served as part of the chef’s pairing course during the Pigs & Pinot gala dinner.

Saturday, March 20
• Tournament of the Pig – 10:30am-12:30pm Charlie Palmer and three of his guest chefs will be divided into two talent-packed teams. These teams will be given three different pork products which they will use to craft three creative dishes, along with ingredients they can find at Dry Creek Kitchen. The winning team will be determined by a panel of prestigious porkloving judges. Of course the audience will be supplied with tastings too. • Ultimate Pinot Smack Down – 1-3pm Time for wine experts to steal the show and demonstrate their Pinot persuasion skills. Join Master Sommeliers Keith Goldston, Fred Dame, Drew Hendricks, and Aureole Las Vegas Wine Director William Sherer for this exciting march-madness inspired wine seminar. Each Master Sommelier enters the room with his personal selection of four Pinot Noirs from around the world and proceeds to “sell” his favorites in this lively head-to-head pitch contest including blind tastings where the audience chooses the winner. • Pigs & Pinot Gala – 7pm Saturday evening’s elegant Pigs & Pinot Gala features a delectable five-course dinner at Hotel Healdsburg’s Dry Creek Kitchen. As a collaborative offering, each course features a signature creation from Palmer and his guest chefs including “Top Chef” brothers Michael and Bryan Voltaggio and Nancy Oakes of Boulevard and Prospect. Every course will be paired with two limited-production Pinot Noirs from highly acclaimed wineries including, Domaine Parent, Merry Edwards, Rochioli and Woodenhead. Pigs & Pinot Late Night is a late evening celebration following the gala with after-dinner drinks and dessert in the Hotel Healdsburg lobby. All Pigs & Pinot celebrants are welcome to attend. Tickets to this event quickly sell out. For more information, tickets or details about package prices with accomodations, visit www.PigsandPinot.com.

THE 2010 PIGS & PINOT WEEKEND LINE-UP Friday, March 19
• Taste of Pigs & Pinot – 12pm To kick off the weekend fun, guests are invited to experience 60 highly-acclaimed Pinot Noir wines, all contenders in the Pinot Cup competition. These hand-picked Pinot Noirs, hailing from California and beyond, face a distinguished judging panel in a blind tasting. This year’s panel is made up of top wine media personalities such as Dan Berger, national wine columnist and Leslie Sbrocco, epicurean author and television host. The winner and runner up of the prestigious Pinot Cup will be revealed at the end of the night. Wine tastings are served alongside a selection of pork dishes created by Chef Palmer and Dry Creek Kitchen Chef de Cuisine Dustin Valette, guest chefs, and many local Healdsburg restaurants including Cyrus, Zin, Barndiva and Healdsburg Charcuterie & Café.

Tasting Room of the Week:

Christopher Creek Winery
by Sue Straight, The Wine Wench
Christopher Creek Winery is located atop a knoll on lovely Limerick Lane, just south of Healdsburg. This charming, family-owned, completely unpretentious winery has everything a visitor could want – excellent, reasonably priced wines; friendly, knowledgeable staff and a lovely setting to boot. There is a small picnic area outside, which provides a breathtaking view of the rolling hills of the Russian River Valley. The winery’s original name was Sotoyome Winery (established in 1974), after the land grant within which the winery was constructed. Several years ago, not long after the original winery was sold and became Christopher Creek, the Wasserman family purchased the winery. In addition to growing grapes, The Wasserman family has been farming oranges in the central valley of California for the past 35 years. Because of this extensive farming history, they are passionate about growing the best grapes possible, which ultimately results in world-class wine (with a little help from their winemaker, Todd Crowell, of course). The winery and tasting room are housed in a rustic, barn-like building, surrounded by vineyards. The tasting room is intimate and comfortable. The tasting bar, which is constructed of recycled redwood wine aging tanks, spans the back of the room. One wall of the tasting room is dedicated to ribbons and medals that the wines have been awarded at various wine competitions. It’s pretty impressive! Annual production at Christopher Creek Winery is a mere 3500 cases, much of which is estate grown. Syrah, Petite Sirah, Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Viognier and Port make up their wine portfolio. For a $5 tasting fee (refundable with purchase), visitors may taste a goodly selection of the aforementioned wines. I had the pleasure of tasting a few wines and they were all delicious! The following wines were my personal favorites: 2007 Viognier, Catie’s Corner, Russian River Valley $28: Mouthwatering aromas of tropical flowers and fruits, Froot Loops® cereal and a hint of fresh green herbs (Viognier often reminds me of the cereal – it’s not artificial tasting, it’s the intensity of several fruits hitting you all at once and the slight sweetness inherent in the varietal. It’s a good thing!) continue as flavors in the richly textured mouth and linger through the finish. In a word, yum! 2008 Petite Sirah, Reserve, Russian River Valley $32: Juicy blackberry, boysenberry, cassis and peppery spice aromas and flavors all play nicely together from the first sniff, through the silky mouthfeel and on through the long, delicious finish. I’m not the only person who loved this wine – it won sweepstakes (best red wine) at the 2010 Riverside International Wine Competition!

SONOMA COUNTY | WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK

Environmental Film Festival & Sustainability Conference Offers a Fresh Perspective on the Planet We Call Home
The 4th annual Sonoma Environmental Film Festival and Sustainability Conference, January 21-23, continues its mandate to raise awareness about ecological challenges by offering solutions through the artistry of film and inspiring discussions. Knowledgeable marine biologists, farmers, fishermen, teachers, environmental and management consultants, local government and non profit project coordinators, among others, join filmmakers and event sponsors for a weekend of inspiration, education, lots of fun, delicious healthy food and drink and good old fashioned networking. Founder Justine Ashton of Glen Ellen has put together a program of some of the world’s best films about the planet followed by panel discussions that cover the topics of the films as they relate to our communities. This is not your ordinary festival – conference – it is a weekend event, affordable ($10 to $15 per session) and open to students, seniors and the general public. On Saturday morning January 22nd there will be two short films: Bermuda: Nature’s Jewel is about rooftop rainwater harvesting on all island buildings (there are no lakes, streams or ponds on Bermuda) followed by The Turning Point – A Return to Community with directors Lisa Mead and Alex Page in person. This film seeks to motivate people to embrace peak oil changes with enthusiasm rather than despair and paralysis. It features practical examples of “low carbon” enterprises in and around the Findhorn Foundation community, a 50 year old eco village in Scotland. Richard Heinberg, Rob Hopkins and Joanna Macy offer insightful commentary. Following the films there will be a panel discussion titled Sustainable Sonoma County – Something to Cheer About! Moderated by Ed Bertain, owner of US HydroTech Environmental Solutions, panelists include Cathy Neville, Sonoma County Ag Commissioner who will talk about sustainable, low carbon enterprises in Sonoma County, filmmaker Lisa Mead whose activities in Findhorn included co-managing its organic food store, Erin Axelrod Program Director at Daily Acts, who will talk about harvesting rainwater systems in a residential home in Petaluma and Melinda Kelley, a City of Sonoma Community Services and Environment Commissioner and environmental consultant who will talk about Sonoma Community Center’s new rainwater 7,900 gallon catchment system. Saturday evening there will be the Northern California premiere of Keiko: The Untold Story with producer-director Theresa Demarest and world renown author Kenneth Brower in person. Nowhere in recent history has a captive mammal garnered so much attention as Keiko, the orca star of the 1993 hit film ”Free Willy.” The film’s success launched a children’s crusade that called for Keiko’s release into the wild. The result: a multimillion dollar project that spanned four countries, weathered endless controversy and lasted nearly a decade. Through first-hand accounts by the marine mammal expects charged with his care, the film follows Keiko, his life, his legacy of hope and the untold story of his extraordinary years in Iceland and Norway. Theresa Demarest is a songwriter/ producer/independent filmmaker for Joshua Records, LLC in Portland, Oregon. She brings to life her deep connection to Keiko’s story and allows the audience to explore his enormous embrace of his own freedom. Ken Brower is best known for his many books about the environment, national parks, and natural places, including “Freeing Keiko.” He is the oldest son of the late environmentalist David R. Brower. A session on Sunday afternoon January 23rd includes two films about California’s lost salmon and coral reefs followed by a panel moderated by Chris Bauer, a two-time winner of the international Society of Environmental Journalists Award for Outstanding Television Story and multiple Northern California Emmy Awards winner. Panelists are Zeke Grader, President of the Pacific Coast Federation of Fishermen’s Association and Dr. Geoff Shester, Program Director, Oceana Organization. They will discuss what’s threatening west coast fishing communities, no-trawl zones off the coast to protect coral and sponge habitats, banning commercial harvest of krill, and prohibiting commercial fishing in the US Arctic. There will be a sustainable seafood reception with organic wine from Ashton Vineyard and Deerfield Ranch Winery between films and panel discussion. Seafood and wine are good for the heart! All films, receptions, and panel discussions take place at the Sonoma Womans Club, 574 1st Street East, Sonoma. Tickets are available on line www.seff.us. and at the venue day of show. There are a limited number of Student Scholarships. Contact Justine Ashton at (707) 935-3456 or send her an email wcfilmfest@aol.com. For complete program details visit www.seff.us.

This winter, on January 15th, begin a new adventure and experience the excellence of the wines produced in this appellation, by spending a wonderful day at the wineries and in the company of winemakers. Santa Cruz Mountains Wines and Passports make wonderful gifts for all occasions. Many of these award-winning wines can be hard to find in stores (and of course are not be available there for sampling). Special prices are also often available during passport. Check the website for area map and last-minute changes in Passport offerings. All four restaurants will be preparing two crab dishes to satisfy your appetite on Sunday, January 16th from 2 to 5 p.m. For $49, you are welcome to take on the challenge of “consumer judge.” Taste food and wine at two restaurants, of your choice, and let them know what you think. All ballots will be tallied to determine the “Consumer Choice Awards” as well as scores from professional judges for the “Judges Choice Awards.” For an additional $16 you can visit another restaurant of your choice. Restaurants are still to be determined but will let you know as soon as they are finalized! Reservations for both events may be purchased from the Santa Cruz Mountains Winegrowers office or online. For more information, or to make reservations, call (831) 685-VINE (8463), go to www.SCMWA.com and enter promo code GW11 for a $5 off discount when you attend both events, or email info@scmwa.com for more information.

New Year, More Cheer from Santa Cruz Mountains
A very happy and healthy new year to you from all the Summit Sirens in the Santa Cruz Mountains! Remember, wine not only lowers bad cholesterol and boosts the good, but it puts you in a good mood, which can lower your stress. And who doesn’t need a little stress reduction, especially after the holidays. January opens a new door to a new decade, and the Summit to Sea wineries have an event-packed year filled with delicious opportunities for your tasting pleasure. Visit all the wineries on the Trail for Winter Passport on Saturday, January 15, and you’re in for a special mountain taste treat. On Saturday, sample local jams and chutneys by Tabitha at Burrell School and Poetic Cellars, enjoy a taste of Pinotage at Loma Prieta, the only winery in the mountains to offer this intriguing off-the-path wine, and taste the gregarious Grenache at Hunter Hill. It’s not too late to contribute to the “Sip to End Hunger,” 2nd Harvest Food Bank Drive that runs through the end of January: hunger doesn’t take a holiday. The Summit Sirens are asking for your help to keep the shelves stocked at your local food bank, so bring those leftover cans and non-perishables with you on Passport and you’ll get an extra sip for your good behavior! Cash donations also accepted. On Sunday, January 16, the Sirens are feeling crabby, in a good way. They’re hosting a Passport Sunday Crabfest. If Passport made you crabby, too, get ready to smile! Show your Passport for free tasting of crab-happy whites and rosés, and for a mere $5 per plate, enjoy some delicious crab dishes served up by local chefs, including Chef Desiree Love from the Oracle Café and Chef Greg from Sandabs in Scotts Valley. Dive into scrumptious crab salad at Loma Prieta, deliciously rich crab quiche at Poetic Cellars, tasty crab salad sliders at Vine Hill, spicy crab poke at Burrell School and some secret fab crab dish at Hunter Hill, which you’ll have to discover for yourself. One thing is certain, you’ll delight in our whites!
