The Kiser family began planting of fine wine grapes in southwest Florida over thirty years ago. Their purpose, to see if they could grow the grapes that produce the fine wines of the world; Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Sangiovese and others. They learned that although the grapes would grow, after only a few years they would begin to die. The culprit was Pierces Disease, a little known condition that attacked the vitis vinifera specie. The Kiser’s also learned that efforts in the early 1900’s to grow fine grapes in Florida had ended in failure. Rather than quitting, they continued their efforts to learn more specifically what had actually happened. They discovered a small research effort that had begun in the 1930’s by agricultural researchers at the University of Florida to learn more about Pierces Disease. Through the efforts of this dedicated group, it was learned that Pierces Disease is a bacteria. They also began a long and painstaking process to determine whether Read more »

  • Thanks all for the concern but we are fully enjoying everything so far. I'm writing up these notes after tasting hours and before or after dinner so no problem missing out on any fun. Day two was as good as day one or even better. Another great breakfast to lay in a good base, then a walk around town (didn't take very long) and then off to our f... Read More

  • Had a great first full day here in south central California. Started off with a very good breakfast at the ForFriends B&B in Santa Ynez. Too early for any of the tasting rooms to be open so we headed down to Jalama beach for some salt air and scenery. Beautiful beach with some interesting campsites and about a half dozen surfers enjoying some mo... Read More

  • It's interesting that a few new topics have popped up recently (Experiencing Cabernet Franc for one) and that my wife Sandra just today handed me an article by Dave McIntyre she cut out of a Washington Post newspaper dated 25 March 2015.  I'm starting this new topic based on this article "The wine cost four digits.  And the taste?" regarding the...

  • This is a report I adapted from my recap on WB. Unfortunately a few guests fell ill in the days prior and had to bow out. Missed you Richard! All in all it was a fun evening with some interesting wines. Plenty of left overs to start the next incarnation. Weather was rain in the AM and we feared having to host indoors but the skies cleared around... Read More

  • RBA, that shellfish platter looks amazing.  You would have had to roll me ... learned some things.Mount Eden Vineyards is, in fact, a historic wine estate located in the Santa Cruz Mountains AVA.  From this list, it appears to me that there is no peak in the Santa Cruz Mountains called "Mount Eden."  So, it is unclear to me why the vineyard/wi...

  • Viszlay Vineyards the Mt. Eden Estate Chardonnay 2012


    Very nice Russian River chardonnay. This is more about ripe stone fruit, fig, apricot and pear. There is also some oak influence but not too much and some creamy mouthfeel but without the buttery flavor. Would prefer a bit more acidity but overall a good RRV chard. Read More

  • The oil spill is, I'm guessing, about 20 miles north of downtown Santa Barbara and about 20-25 miles south and west of what most people refer to as Santa Barbara wine country--Lompoc/Santa Ynez.  There are some tasting rooms in the city of Santa Barbara, and, in fact most of them are within walking distance of each other.  I would guess that the...
