    La Crema Winery »

    La Crema’s vineyards are all harvested by hand. The winemaking techniques are primarily traditional to ensure that the wines are true to both the variety and the terroir. The Chardonnays are whole-cluster pressed and fermented and aged in French oak on the lees with bi-monthly battonage to add texture and complexity. The Pinot Noirs are cold soaked for five to eight days before fermentation in small, open-top fermenters and aging in a combination of new and used French oak barrels. As with the Chardonnay, La Crema’s Pinot Noirs are pure, accurate and reflective of their origin. Over the intervening years, La Crema expanded its collection of vineyards to include some of the most esteemed sites in not just the Russian River Valley but also Sonoma Coast, Mendocino, Carneros and Monterey.

    Sorry, this event is now full.

    Premium Tequilas from Casa Noble »

    One of the small-volume craft Tequila producers helping to raise Tequila’s image is Casa Noble, a brand whose history dates back to the 1700s. Casa Noble’s blue agave fields are mostly on slopes and hillsides, which stresses the plant, and the company believes produces a more complex tasting agave plant. Another difference in Casa Noble’s process to set it apart is the three distillations to which it subjects its spirit. They are also certified organic, the second brand in Mexico to receive the certification. That means it employs no fertilizers or chemicals in the cultivation of its blue agave, or in its distilling process.

    Wines for Labor Day Weekend »

    The days are growing shorter and the summer rays will soon be giving way to the changing leaves and bone-chilling breezes. Labor Day may be our last chance to light up the grill without having to put a snow suit on first. In short, this is lull time for indoor activity and high time to enjoy summer's last rays of sunshine. Mark Strassel will be here to give us some inspiration on wine pairings for a perfect picnic or BBQ.

    Argentine Wineries Quara vs Lujuria »

    Formerly associated with inexpensive bulk wine but dramatically shifting focus from quantity to quality, Argentina is the most important wine-producing country in South America. Certainly excellent values abound here still, but increases in vineyard investment, improved winery technology, and a commitment to innovation since the late 20th century have contributed to the country’s image as a producer of great wines at all price points.

    Highly Rated Wines from California Estate Wineries »

    Responsible for the vast majority of American wine production, if California were a country, it would be the world’s fourth largest wine-producing nation. The state’s diverse terrain and microclimates allow for an incredibly wide-ranging selection of wine styles, and unlike tradition-bound Europe, experimentation is more than welcome here. Just about every style of wine you can imagine is made in California, from bone dry to unctuously sweet, still to sparkling, light and fresh to rich and full-bodied. With all the diversity that California has to offer, it is certain that any wine lover will find something to get excited about.
