  • 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...

  • Interesting. Given the current water situation in CA, it may not be such a bad idea not to develop any more water-intensive businesses.Greg, the central coast has had water issues as long as I can remember...  Even in spells of good rain.  They are always conserving.  I read it has to do with their location- their source is basically runoff from...

  • NG, you can call me Darren, or a-hole, whichever is more applicable at the time :)I should have said I found on the internet, a real estate site that had listings for sale.  It makes sense then if you can't do anything with it that people would give up.I thought America was the land of the free!  That sounds Totalitarian to me.  Is that a local,...

  • Unless you're an utter Revolutionary War geek, or want to get down and dirty and maybe survive a visit with the utterly wrong crowd, I think I already did. Two visits to Camden running into the wrong sorts years back and I knew that sage and manzanita and shale hillsides behind and head-high or higher gnarly breaks in front--with a proper burrit...

  • Wrights Station Winery Reserve Chardonnay Santa Cruz Mountains 2010

    Snoothrank:

    A great Chardonnay from a new winery. Dan Lokteff has perfected Chardonnay. A slightly oaked citrus chard, touch of hazel, refreshing, you'll want to fill your canteen up with it before a long hike... Read More

  • Oh, crap, I posted on the doozy thing on your other thread.It rained in Santa Cruz today, about ten big drops my kids say.  I am betting we just have overcast here.  If I'm wrong, I'll be paying a big price, since my skylight has been open for literally months and I'm not closing it now. And, yeah, wrong thread, but tonight I drank a 2004 Poggio...

  • SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA: our origins and future in a single glance I am going to create a winery in Los Angeles, on the banks of the Los Angeles river, on the edge of what was once the greatest grape growing region in the whole country. I aim to have this winery up and running by harvest 2015. I have made great progress already and will devote much ... Read More

  • My father had an expression:  Centrally located and convenient to nothing.  Referred to working in Wichita, KS, but was used at other times.  That was, I think, the point that JD made earlier.  Carmel was on the table at one point, but there's some sense in doing it closer to an airport if folks like to travel that way.  That said, anyone who wa...

  • OT is our boots on the ground up there in Sonoma, but I've been watching GdP's reports and keeping an eye on the weather and it looks pretty ideal.  According to Clay Mauritson, Zin's perfect temperature for growing and ripening is right around 86 F.  And that's been where the weather has stayed, outside that insane heatspike at the end of June/...
