Davis Valley Winery is one of the first wineries to produce Corot noir wine. This distinctive red wine has a deep red color and attractive berry and cherry fruit aromas. It pairs well with beef, game and other hearty dishes but will not overpower pork and lamb. Corot noir is a newly recognized wine variety, but the 2005 Corot noir wine in our bottles was 35 years in the making! The vines are 1970 hybrid cross between Seyve Villard and Steuben. The wine made from these grapes will surely come into vogue over the next few years. But you can be among the first to sample it at our winery! – Description from AlexJelena

  • If she's likening it to malolactic, once it's tamed we're talking more than just small batches. It's personally interesting to me that Zelma Long was playing around with it 25 or more years ago. She was someone I noticed when she moved to Simi from Mondavi at the end of the '70s. I began a book project that was catalyzed by a Capra Press (small,... Read More

  • I know of a number of people in the craft beer world who are purposely introducing brettanomyces into the brewing equation to see how interesting things can get. 'Wild yeast' beers are barely (not) controllable but they are rapidly becoming cult items. Case in point, this quote about a Sierra Nevada brew, taken from Good Morning America: Sierra ... Read More

  • Chardonnay, oh Chardonnay. You really don’t have to be any better, do you? Back in the day when I lead staff tastings in retail we had Chardonnay tastings some four times a year. It’s the only time people would call in sick in order to opt out of staff tastings. The wines, at all price points, vary so much in style and quality that you were sure... Read More

  • I visited their Oakland tasting room a few years back and really enjoyed the laid back atmosphere as well as their zins and especially their petite sirah.Here's a quote from the Dashe Web site re: their label design:"Anne and Michael (Dashe) met in 1994. Sharing a wealth of personal and professional interests, the couple spoke early in their rel... Read More

  • So I am sneaking away to Sonoma for a few days.  I have spent tons of time up in RRV and Sebastopol, and I think I want to revisit the lower valley this time- Kenwood, Glen Ellen...  I would love recommendations for wineries, hotels, motels, vac. rentals, and restaurants.  Sonoma proper would be ok to stay, as is close to those areas.  Plan on h...

  • I am pretty much prejudiced towards red wines.  However, that does not mean that I drink them exclusively.  I do drink quite a bit of white wine.  Probably, because, like most Americans my age, we are encouraged to bias out protein input away from red meats.  The good news for me is that I do love seafood and chicken.  So, that is really not a s...

  • Chardonnay is an ideal wine to pair with many grilled foods. For one thing, it’s immensely popular—I have friends who prefer it to anything else. It is also extremely versatile, with the best examples having not only the acidity to cut through the grease and char that one expects from a lot of grilled foods, but also a richness that helps it sta...
