Santa Barbara Wine Company

Led by estate-grown Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, Santa Barbara Wine Company offers a fresh, modern approach to California's most exciting wine region. While some North Coast wines are like a three-piece suit, where the fruit character may be subdued by heavy-handed oak or over-manipulation in the winery, our wines are more like an aloha shirt: a true expression of the wonderful Santa Barbara terroir. – Description from Nerevar

  • I once spent 48 hours making a sauce from scratch. It was a classic Sauce Robert that started with a tray full of bones and vegetables. The compound sauce required demi-glace, the rich reduction of beefy goodness that takes a lot of time and effort, and I was determined to use no pre-made ingredients. At the end, gallons of liquid and pounds of ... Read More

  • The reach of Santa Rosa-based Jackson Family Wines now stretches from one side of the world to the other. The family-owned winery recently purchased South Africa's Fijnbosch farm, a piece of land which, according to the Santa Rosa Press Democrat, includes a 20-acre vineyard in South Africa's famed Stellenbosch region. “The family has been lookin...

  • 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

  • It’s a great thing when things just come together. Earlier this year I had planned a trip to California to do some tasting but it had to be postponed. When I went to reschedule I noticed a thread in the Snooth Forum  that was looking for people to join in a West Coast Pinot Noir Throw Down. I wasn’t sure what exactly that entailed but I am alway...
