H.R. 5034 C.A.R.E. Lives Again… Damn it!

Date: Thu, Sep 16, 2010 Winery Blogs

It appeared that the momentum behind the ludicrous H.R. 5034 had waned, but just this Monday retiring Congressman Delahunt of Massachusetts re-filed the bill with some minor changes. He is also asking that the bill be heard before congress adjourns this year. The rumor is a hearing may be scheduled as early as September 29th

Day Four – Fun in Napa Valley

Date: Wed, Sep 15, 2010 Winery Blogs

Saturday was intended to be a bit of a down day for us but even so the calendar began to fill quickly. Today like most mornings began with a 10 AM tasting which brings me to a Donna quote, “one of the best things about wine country is that you can start drinking wine at 10 AM and no one judges you ;-).” Visits include Alapha Omega Winery, Cakebread Cellars, Solage Resort

Day 3 – Guilty Pleasures Day

Date: Sun, Sep 12, 2010 Winery Blogs

This day the theme was Guilty Pleasures because both Donna and I got to pick out long time favorite vineyards to visit. For Donna the choice was easy as she is addicted to the lush, rich and creamy flavors of Rombauer Chardonnay (The favorite drink of Cougars everywhere). For me, we ventured up Howell Mountain and through the quaint town of Angwin to visit the Dunn family of Dunn Vineyards - Howell Mountain Cabernet fame.

Day 2 Sonoma Wine Country

Date: Sat, Sep 11, 2010 Winery Blogs

The drive from Napa to Sonoma can take 45 minutes to an hour through beautiful winding mountain roads. The two areas both make great wine but in many ways that’s where the similarities end. One person told me to think of Napa as Las Vegas and Sonoma as Reno. The description isn’t far off. To me Sonoma is very reminiscent of the Napa I first visited 27 years ago. The countryside has much more of a rural feel and the folks seem much more casual and relaxed.

Day 1 Napa Sonoma Adventure

Date: Thu, Sep 9, 2010 Winery Blogs

The clouds of San Francisco dissipated as we drove across the bay bridge and on to Napa where it was sunny and 75 degrees. Our first stop was at the newly opened Kenzo Estate high above the town of Napa on Glass Mountain. Think of this as more of a destination winery rather than a stop by tasting room. This sleek, elegant winery is the 100 million dollar dream of Kenzo Tsujimoto of Japanese video game giant, Capcom. Heidi Barrett of Screaming Eagle fame is the winemaker.
