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

  • As the former National Wine Director for Smith & Wollensky Restaurant Group, I love the line, “A slab and a Cab, please.” As a native Texan, I never would have thought Texan Cabernet would join cattle as one of the state’s most prosperous crops. But it has, and I am thrilled to see Texan wine thrive. Surprised to hear that the Lone Star State ma... Read More

  • Aside from the perfumy potpourri sweetness, you just described a considerable part of the profile of a lot of small wineries around the landscape when I was first hitchiking up and down CA and the Pacific NW, as well as Europe, back in the '70s. Before Davis-style modernization took universal hold. Sourness, brett, questionable sediment. Althoug... Read More

  • Made a trip to Pahrump Nevada today to play a round of golf with my friends at Mountain Falls GC. Amazing course! Rated #1 in Nevada and the #7 public course in America. Who would have thought a course that nice could be located smack dab in the middle of basically no-mans land.Because the trip is 45 minutes from Vegas, I decided to visit the wi... Read More

  • Set on an oak-dotted hillside in eastern Paso Robles, Vina Robles epitomizes the stylistic bridge between old and new-world winemaking. The distinctive winery was the brainchild of Hans Nef, a Swiss entrepreneur, engineer, and developer who always had a passion for wine. His passion led him from collecting fine Bordeaux, to importing select wine... Read More

  • 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
