Valentine Vineyards is a small family-run winery in Southern Mendocino County, just a quarter of a mile from the Alexander Valley appellation. The vineyard was planted in 1976 by Rodney Strong with 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Between 1975 and 1985, the vineyard was operated by Sonoma Vineyards which produced wine from the vineyard under the designation “Haehl Ranch”. In 1987, the vineyard was purchased by Bob Valentine and became Valentine Vineyards. Since the purchase of Valentine Vineyards, Bob Valentine has been busy at work both selling his grapes to outside wineries and producing his own private, award generating wines comprised of 100% Valentine fruit. The gold medals collected in amateur wine competitions over the past decade are both numerous and impressive. Triple gold awards are not uncommon in Bob Valentine's repitoire of amateur wine awards. After more than 19 years of personal bottling of Valentine private, family-label Cabernet, Valentine wine is now available for sale to the public. Valentine Read more »

  • White wines are a summer classic, but it has been a long summer. There is a good chance that you are surfeit with white wine by now. Ultra-hip rosé and orange wines aren’t your only options. Be a true trendsetter and cozy up with a late summer red. Summer calls for diaphanous red wine grapes that allow fresh fruits to shine without the deep, dar... Read More

  • My quest to uncover wine categories that aren’t getting as much love as they deserve continues, and just in time for Valentine’s Day. As luck would have it many of the same groups of wine that don’t get enough attention also represent terrific values for wine lovers. Too many wines, too little time is one reason that some of these categories are... Read More

  • Here's the funny thing:  For just a minute, Napa Ridge Cab was made from grapes from Napa Valley.  So that added to the confusion.  Franzia sometimes bought up labels that had some history or a reputation.  (His company is called Bronco, because the Franzia name was bought by Coca Cola and sold to The Wine Group.  So there's lots of history and ...

The fourteenth century English poet Geoffrey Chaucer wrote of love birds choosing their mate on St. Valentine’s Day. During the same period in France, King Charles VI issued a charter directing members of h... Read More

  • Again, v v, an excellent report.  I think this is the best wine country trip report I've ever read.  I have often commented here that I enjoy Spring Mountain District wines.  Maybe your experience will add more popular respect to this district.  My experience is from Chateau Chevalier, Keenan, Smith-Madrone and Terra Valentine.  However, I do ha...

  • I love the Ridge labels.  They are the most informative labels around.  GregT made reference to Ridge "single vineyard" bottliings and "Zin-based" bottlings.  Very few of the Ridge bottlings will have "Zinfandel" prominently displayed on the front label.  In the United States in order for a wine to be identified by a grape variety, it must conta...
