  • Didn't mention it in the Amador County thread, but on our return from Amador County to the East Bay, we took the state routes through the Central Valley and down the Delta.  The route took us right through Clements, which is really the heart of Lodi wine country, and along the edge of the city of Lodi.  Here's a little map:Although Lodi is in th...

  • I think OT had a thread in Berserkers all about pictures of vines and vineyards...tried to find one on here but came up short. There was some talk of Limerick Lane (has a nice ring to it) on here recently, I believe Mark has some of the wines. Just now I noticed a nice picture of some Limerick Lane Vineyard rows posted to Facebook by Adam of Sid... Read More

  • I remember when I met Steven Spurrier, back in the early-mid-80s, he insisted that the best time to taste wines in terms of body clock and sensory sharpness was around 10 in the morning... Read More

  • Terra d'Oro wines are the more expensive, but their wines are generally really reasonable. The story behind the winery is that Walter Field's daughter married Cary Gott (the father of Joel Gott and the son of a winemaker himself), so Walter Field moved to the mountains to be near his daughter.  He bought the land, and Cary Gott started making th...

  • Very excellent essay, Fox.  Thank you, very much.Can you explain the diferentiation in the Terra d'Oro/Montevina labels?  At first I was going to guess that theTerra d'Oro label was used for wines made from "Italian" grapes, and Montevina was used on wines made from "California grapes that everybody else uses,"  but it is not that simple.  It ap...

  • Misery loves company.  But it was fitting to go from Dino to the pan-Ital wines of Amador County.  (I've got a theory about how "Italian Americans" came to be viewed as folks you want to socialize with instead of suspicious foreigners with individual regional identities, and Dino fits into it.)OT, the Turley room was still showing on the map as ...

  • "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...

  • Last week I met Jon to trade some bottles.  We met at Hi Time Liquor in Costa Mesa--a store with a very excellent inventory of wines.  I might have surprised Jon a bit when I declined to do any shopping.  There have been numerous hits to my credit cards, lately, and I thought that I should tone it down a bit.Well, that lasted until today.I'd bee...

  • The middle of February has long been a time to celebrate love. The ancient Greeks and Romans held festivals to honor fertility and marriage. The fourteenth century English poet Geoffrey Chaucer wrote of love birds choosing their mate on St. Valentine’s Day.
