  • "When the moon hits your eye/like a big pizza pie/that's amore."As we ate our breakfast on Sunday morning at the Imperial Hotel in Amador City, the soundtrack subtly changed.  Last night at dinner and halfway through breakfast, the soundtrack was from the same era, but Sam Cooke sent us, and Ray Charles warned us about women.  This morning, with...

  • We're even with the Golden Gate and we haven't had much rain at all.  However, there has been a bit more up OT's way and farther north.  Not enough to replenish the ground water that is being depleted or refill reservoirs.  More tragically, the Sierra snow pack is worse this year.  In fact, pretty much the worst it has ever been.  Far from being...

  • Robin recently took the winemaking position at Swanson Vineyards in Oakville ... Yountville, Oakville and as far north as Calistoga. The Pinot came from Annapolis in the True Sonoma Coast.  After the tasting he took me on a tour of the crush pad, barrel rooms, tasting salon and courtyard. Neat older property with a lot of charm. Robin seems ex... Read More

  • Growing up doing a bit of surfcasting, pier and offshore fishing in LA, Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties (out to even around the Channel Islands), and even a couple times down off San Diego (though more down the length of Baja), then traveling the world and fishing in other places, I never had the impression that SoCal oceans were as rich as o...

  • Okay, getting back to the topic at hand, in effect the Santa Lucia Highlands AVA is the other side of those mountains.  Arroyo Seco is basically due east of Big Sur.  And there's San Antonio Valley a little further south.  (Pierce Family, whom I have touted on the "Completely Different" thread, are down there.)  Here's a nice map: http://wine.ap...

  • The photos are all from three separate plots of private land that I looked at.Agreed, JD, and I hesitated before posting my query.But wondered if anyone knew of any winemakers doing things there, interesting or not. Certainly there is wine down towards Cambria and Cayucos. If the Hearst family had held onto San Simeon, there'd likely be hundreds... Read More

  • I once, a few years back, almost pulled the trigger on a real estate purchase in the hills back behind the Big Sur coastline. Was reminiscing on that today, and wondered why I never hear about wine from that area. Is it because I'm so far away and out of touch and there actually are barrels and barrels of wine being made there, or because the cu... Read More

  • OT, JD and others - Guess what wine we shared with friends at a restaurant tonight?  Nope, not a Silver Oak Cabernet Sauvignon.  We ended up trying that Caymus 40th anniversary Cabernet Sauvignon wine.  We paid $120 for the bottle (would have been $24 per glass), so it was a 2X markup.  It wasn't my first choice by far, but then after finding ou...

  • Thanks for the map to illustrate what I was pointing towards, Fox. If Clos du Bois were not wanting to say where they sourced their fruit, with an area as large and amorphous as the 'North Coast', it would then come almost entirely back to the winemaker. "As far as I'm concerned, there isn't any Vancouver Island or Gulf Island wine."Would be ver...

  • DM,As far as I'm concerned, there isn't any Vancouver Island or Gulf Island wine.  My friend Chester would say there ARE a few Pinot's that are good, but I'm not a Pinot fan at the best of times.  So, when I say BC wine, I mean Okanagan. I had a 2003 Clos Du Bois Marlstone (meritage) a couple years ago and it was good, not stellar.To further emp...
