Bodega de Edgar A Formidable Niche of Spanish Varietal Wines In the Paso Robles viticulture region that is known for diversity, Edgar Torres has created a formidable niche of Spanish varietal wines. Twenty-one years ago, Edgar was an eight-year-old undocumented immigrant. His parents left everything behind in Michoacån, Mexico, to recalculate their future in the Central Coast community of Cambria. He grew up attending local schools and learned early the value of mentorship. Edgar sought the wisdom of his parents, his teachers, a high school coach, and a few winemaking mentors who saw in him a genuine desire to create his own destiny. And blaze a trail he did – in restaurant and wine cellar work, and in planning, conservative budgeting and relentless study. Edgar learned from his mentors but was determined not to duplicate them. At 21, Edgar gathered his modest college savings and plunked it into four barrels from which came his first wine. He never looked back.

Wine Country This Month: Central Coast


“I have an Old World mindset, but I’ve embraced the New World,” said Edgar. “I’m an intuitive winemaker, so I don’t tie it to a style or a trend.” Edgar insists upon approaching his craft in an uncomplicated sort of way. But what visitors will find in every pour is not only consistency of quality and balance, but a winemaker’s maturity beyond his years forged through sacrifice, delayed gratification, and commitment. Edgar is discriminating about his grapes and sources them only from reputable vineyards on the Central Coast. Among them are Grenache, Tempranillo, Mourvèdre, Graciano, and Carignan from Paper Street Vineyard in Paso Robles’ Willow Creek District, Cabernet Sauvignon from the Geneseo District, and Syrah and Grenache grapes from Kimsey Vineyard in northern Santa Barbara County’s Ballard Canyon, which is nestled between the cool Sta. Rita Hills and warmer Happy Canyon sub-regions. “I don’t chemically drive my wine; I make decisions based on what’s happening on the vine,” said Edgar. “My yields are small and artisanal. Each vintage is unique and interesting, and that makes it fun for people to come back and enjoy them.” An abiding Bodega de Edgar label is E-Squared (E2). This cellar-worthy 50-50 blend of Grenache and Syrah has notes of chocolate, dark berries, and a touch of white pepper. Another is Bodega de Edgar Tempranillo, an impressive and instantly likeable wine sourced from Laetitia Vineyard grapes and aged for 18 to 20 months in American and French oak. Complex, structured and balanced, this wine is sure to please Tempranillo aficionados. In addition to his popular Albariño wine, aged 19 months in stainless steel, is a quartet of fruit-forward reds, which Edgar calls his “Homage to Spain.” They include one Toro de Paso red blend and three Bodega de Edgar wines, Tarragona, La Jumilla, and Priorato, the latter of which honors Spain’s dry and rugged northeastern Priorat region. It is here where 12th-century Carthusian monks first planted their vines. Deep and dark with firm tannins, Priorato is 90 percent Carignan softened with a touch of Syrah. “These wines are similar in style and indicative of the wines of Spain,” said Edgar, where the days are hot and the nights are cool, much like Paso Robles.” Three wines reflect Edgar’s love of life. La Guera is 80 percent Albariño blended with Rhone-style varietals and aged in French and Russian oak. Affectionately named, this intoxicating “blondie” is a tribute to Erika, his wife and mother to their six-year-old son, Evan. Another is a half Cabernet Sauvignon blended with Rhone-style varietals called El Cabrhone, a play on words that Edgar characterizes as “badass” determination and the grit to succeed. But central to the Bodega de Edgar collection is Mis Pasos (“my steps”) upon which images of Edgar’s family adorn his best bottles of Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Tempranillo wines. These special vintages reflect Edgar’s reverence for elders who exampled the integrity required to conduct his own life’s journey. BY MELISSA CHAVEZ

Wine Country This Month: Central Coast

New digs in Paso Robles’ eastside In February, Edgar will unveil his newly-constructed tasting room with an industrial vibe at 3550 Combine Street, just north of Hwy. 46 East in Paso Robles, where visitors can sip, swirl, and chat with the winemaker. Beyond the bar, large windows offer peeks into the production facility and barrel room. A speakeasy is also in the works for wine club members. Outside, umbrella-shaded tables, a play structure for kids, a giant Jenga replica and cornhole provide wholesome entertainment for visitors with children. Repurposed sea train containers provide a bar area and cooking facilities for events and private parties throughout the year. “I used to dream of retiring, but I don’t want that because I’m in a passion-driven business and my vision is enlarging,” said Edgar. “My dream is coming true,” he added, surveying his new space. “Just as I’ve experienced it, I also want to make a difference in the people who cross my path, and that’s fun.”

Bodega de Edgar Wine Club A $15 tasting fee is waived with a two-bottle purchase or Bodega de Edgar Wine Club membership. A word to the wise: Join the wine club. Why? Because Edgar prioritizes quality over quantity, the demand for his smalllots is high, and favorites may quickly run out. Membership includes two free tastings, 20 percent wine discounts, and two annual pick-up parties in March and October. OPEN DAILY FROM 11AM-5 PM (805) 369-2625 EDGAR@BODEGADEEDGAR.COM

Glunz Family Winery An American Generational Story

There are many inspirational stories about immigrants Coming to America, working hard, realizing the American Dream, and building multi-generational family businesses. The Glunz family is one of those stories. The relevant word in Glunz Family Winery is “family.” In 1871, at the age of 17, Louis Glunz first immigrated to America during one of the early waves of migration from Europe (on the same ship as Oscar Meyer). Little could Louis realize that almost 150 years later, his story could be told with the oft use phrase “and the rest is history.” Louis Glunz found his way to Chicago, where he began a business as a spirits merchant, and opened a tavern next to his liquor business. Today, the original family tavern is still there – as a testament to the Glunz family legacy. In 1893, Louis became the bottler and wholesaler for Schlitz Beers for the Chicago World’s Fair … never looking back. That truly was the beginning of the history and legacy of this new American family. Today, the fourth generation is involved in a multi-national family business – but to be involved there are rules: It is stipulated that once becoming adults, descendants must spend at least three years on their own, forging their own paths – and only after that can they make their proposal to join the family business. In the case of brothers Matthew and Stephan Glunz, they both had a passion for wine. After college, working and training in the industry (Matthew and Stephan’s first job was working for Penner-Ash in Oregon), the brothers, along with their eight siblings and parents purchased land in Paso Robles, and began their winery in 2013. Truly a family business!

Taste and Enjoy Visiting Glunz Family Winery & Cellars Driving up to the tasting room the vista and grounds seem to say “welcome.” With an abundance of trees, an inviting lounge area

Wine Country This Month: Central Coast


outside the tasting room, even a small putting green, your tasting adventure is about to begin. Between all of their other tasks of running a winery, spending time in the vineyards, making wine, overseeing business decisions, etc., Stephan and Matthew love spending as much time as possible in the tasting room – talking to guests and explaining their winemaking philosophy and history. Their passion and commitment is evident, and whereas you often hear winemakers give a somewhat more technical answer on how they look at making wine, Steve and Matthew are very down to earth: “We want to make wine that excites us and that we simply love to drink.” Following on that theme, during their time at Penner-Ash, a love affair with Pinot Noir began, and because they love to drink it, a 2018 Spanish Springs Pinot Noir will be released early in 2020. The Glunz brothers grow grapes, mostly Cabernet, for their estate wines, but also source from outstanding vineyards for other varietals, such as Spanish Springs for Pinot Noir, White Hawk for Syrah, and Paper Street for Zinfandel.

Drink in the Past, Experience the Present The tasting room is a blend of old and new. As you sip the current wines, take time to look around the tasting room for a history of the Glunz family. On one wall is a picture of the Glunz family, pictures dating from the time Louis arrived in America, a huge generational family picture, a chair that belonged to Louis Glunz first from the 1880s and a wall clock from the old Glunz tavern. Also, take time to look at the corks, corkscrews and sommelier tasting cups displayed under the glass counters. Visiting Glunz Family Winery is an experience blending Old World and New World dreams – and exemplifies what is really meant by the term: “The American Dream.”

Glunz Family Wine Facts • Stephan and Matthew’s nephew, Liam, is completing his degree at Cal Poly SLO in Viticulture & Enology. Before joining the family business, he will serve in the U.S. Army as a logistics officer. Thank you for your service, Liam ... and for your commitment to carry on the family tradition. • Some recent Wine Enthusiast Ratings - Glunz 2017 Dante Dusi Vineyard Zinfandel, Paso Robles: 91 points - Glunz 2018 Mrs. Murphy’s The Face of Ireland White Hawk Vineyard Viognier, Santa Barbara County: 90 points - Glunz 2017 Paper Street Vineyard Zinfandel, Paso Robles: 90 points • A Glunz family specialty: Mission Angelica. Named “Best Fortified Wine” 3 years running by Central Coast Wine Competition. Aged an average of 25 years, using the Solera method – each vintage is aged 10 years before blending in. • The winery contains an assortment of winemaking equipment dating back into the 1890s! • Try some of Glunz’s FUN sangrias, in bottles and cans! • Come for wine, fun, pizza festival weekend, history and one of the most enjoyable wine experiences you will have during your Paso Robles visit.

The installation has hosted in excess of 100,000 visitors to date. This new Central California destination has also offered a highly romantic setting for popping the question, with Sensorio staff reporting at least six marriage proposals on the grounds to date. Sensorio, the intersection of art, technology, and nature, has been designed as a destination for entertainment, exploration, meditation, adventure, and delight, honoring the natural topography of the landscape. Future developments at Sensorio will include a hotel and conference center. Guests are invited to download Sensorio’s free app, “Sensorio Paso” for an enhanced experience.

Temecula Valley Balloon & Wine Festival, May 29-31 A Dynamic Blend of Unforgettable Sights, Sounds and Fun Scenically located in the heart of Southern California Wine Country, the Temecula Valley Balloon and Wine Festival, May 29-31, 2020, offers the finest tastes, sights and sounds in one picturesque setting. The three-day event is staged at Lake Skinner Recreation Area, a multi-species reserve that stretches into 14,000 acres of open space that eventually links to Diamond Valley Lake. Exhilarating views abound, whether feet are firmly planted on the ground or gliding through the air in a Hot Air Balloon. The Festival features up to 40 hot air balloons rising at sunrise into the Temecula’s beautiful skies, up to 16 wineries, camping, and top bands in concert on two different stages. Lifting both spirits and spectators, guests can choose between a 45-minute balloon flight over wine country or a five to eightminute tethered ride that does not leave the Festival grounds. Balloon flights held at dawn on Saturday and Sunday and are weather permitting. Tethered rides continue until about 8:30 a.m. Guests who prefer sleeping-in can enjoy the night-owls’ option of evening hot air balloon glows on Friday and Saturday nights. Balloon “Glows” provide a closeup view of the hot air balloons and a spectacular light show. During the glow, up to eight balloons tether to the ground, inflate their canopies and then simultaneously ignite their burners. This illuminates the colorful balloon canopies against the velvet black evening skies. A new eyeopener this year is the Sunrise Balloon Brunch on Saturday and Sunday mornings. The package features admission, a reserved tethered hot air balloon ride, brunch and mimosas. This is Southern California Wine Country where the vibe is casual, fine wine abundant and lazy afternoons in the sun are complemented with a variety of food experiences. Wine Enthusiast magazine named the Temecula Valley one of the 10

18

Best Wine Getaways for 2019. The Festival offers a chance to taste many of the local wines in one beautiful park setting. Up to 50 different wines will be offered with two ways to taste – the standard wine tasting ticket and the winemakers' reserve ticket where tasting is done in a private garden. Afternoons and evenings feature concerts on two stages. The wine stage offers local and Indie artists Friday through Sunday. The Main Stage provides festival headliners. All concerts are included in the ticket price. Reserved seats are available for the headliners. Previous concerts have included Chris Young, Third Eye Blind, 3 Doors Down, Big & Rich, Kenny Loggins, Blake Shelton, Bush and Peter Frampton. Bands are announced in the spring. Campsites go on sale Tuesday, March 3, 2020, online only. Full hook-ups usually sell out immediately. Check www.tvbwf.com for scheduled times and activities or call (951) 676-6713.

3rd Annual Event Offers Wow Factor for Trade and Consumers Alike The world of wine is set to come together at the third annual Wine Speak Paso Robles event on January 14-16, featuring a unique mix of trade and consumer experiences with an emphasis on community. “In two short years, Wine Speak has become a draw for those looking for a refreshing wine experience,” said Fred Dame, famed master sommelier and global wine ambassador at DAOU Vineyards & Winery. “The participants here truly 'participate' in all the events. This is a genuine wine community experience.” The result is a trade-focused event showcasing an all-star cast of master sommeliers, wine industry leaders and hospitality professionals, all of whom rub shoulders with wine lovers at two signature public tastings – the “Wines of The World” Grand Tasting on January 14 and the “BYOB Dinner” on January 15. “I think that’s what makes Wine Speak unique,” said master sommelier Chuck Furuya, who co-founded Wine Speak with Amanda Wittstrom-Higgins. “It’s not just for one segment of the wine industry. It’s for everyone. It’s an intimate event with a big tent, because we’re all in this together.”

Wine Speak 2020 - Trade Experiences Wine Speak 2020 spans three days in the Paso Robles wine country, kicking off with a regional open Pack n Ship 0719.qxp_Layout 1 6/20/19 11:12 AMhouse, Page 1followed by two days of winemaker-sommelier panels. The event will conclude with professional development seminars and workshops on the final day.

Wine Speak 2020 will boast an international flair, featuring industry luminaries from both the old and new worlds—such as Paso Robles, California; Napa Valley, California; Rhône Valley, France; Priorat, Spain; Mendoza, Argentina and elsewhere. Said co-founder Amanda Wittstrom-Higgins, Ancient Peaks Winery’s VP of operations, “Our aim is to create a premier experience for wine industry professionals to grow and learn together.”

National award from recognizes Garagiste Festival’s innovation; 2020 line-up in Sonoma, Solvang, Los Angeles and Paso Robles announced The Garagiste Wine Festival, which was just named ‘Best of the Fests’ for 2019 by Fest Forums, is kicking off its 10th anniversary year with its popular Garagiste Northern Exposure event in Sonoma on February 15th, 2020. The Sonoma event offers wine lovers rare access to cutting-edge wines from over 40 micro-production, commercial wineries from Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino, Sierra Foothills, Lodi, Santa Cruz and more. The Garagiste Festival premiered in 2011 and is the nation’s first and only festival to showcase the wines of microproduction commercial ‘garagiste*’ winemakers. The ‘Best of Fest’ Award from Fest Forums, the country's leading conference for Event and Festival producers nationwide, recognized The Garagiste Festival for its innovation. Because Garagiste offers wine lovers oneof-a-kind opportunities to taste a range of each year’s most exciting handcrafted small-lot production wines, all under one roof, its four annual festivals in Sonoma, Solvang, Los Angeles and Paso Robles consistently sell out. This is the second national award for the festival which was also named the ‘Best Wine Festival in the US in USA Today’s 10 Best Readers’ Choice Awards. “2020 is a landmark year for Garagiste, and we are so grateful to receive this prestigious award as we head into our 10th anniversary year,” said Garagiste Festival Co-founder Doug Minnick. “The Garagiste Festival is the ‘little engine that could’ in a world of bigtime events featuring major stars and corporations, and we know it is all down to the amazing winemakers who pour at our festivals and each year inject freshness, creativity and a renegade spirit into the wine establishment.” The non-profit Garagiste Festival also supports the Garagiste Festival Scholarships at the Wine and Viticulture Department at Cal Poly University San Luis Obispo.

“Our mission over the last decade has been to shine a spotlight on smalllot winemakers, who you don’t find in grocery stores or on wine country maps, while supporting the winemakers of the future through our Garagiste Festival Scholarships,” said Garagiste Co-founder Stewart McLennan. “Our intimate and ‘no snobs’ allowed atmosphere has made the Garagiste Festivals unique and memorable, while our winemakers have expanded the horizons and palates of thousands of wine lovers. 2020 will be our best year of festivals ever. Stay tuned!”

Northern Exposure in Sonoma: The February 15th 2020 Garagiste Festival Northern Exposure will be held at the Sonoma Veterans Building near Sonoma’s historic downtown plaza and features 40 winemakers, one-in-four of which are brand new to the festival, pouring over 100+ wines from 20+ grape varieties.

San Luis Obispo’s unusual natural beauty, along with its gentle climate, first attracted the Spanish padres to the area in the 1700s. In 1772, they built the fifth of California’s 21 missions

here, on the banks of San Luis Creek, and named it Mission San Luis Obispo de Tolosa. Today, many consider this the most beautiful of the Spanish missions.

t’s no wonder the people here call it SLO. No one is in any hurry in the cafes or on the sidewalks, and certainly no one is in any rush to leave. Strangers are genuinely friendly, always ready to talk about their favorite hiking trail or barbecue joint, or to point the way to the winery with the best Pinot Noir. It’s all part of the SLO life, that combination of good stuff that makes visiting here so nourishing to the soul.

Wine Country This Month: Central Coast


Wine Surf Report from SLOCoastWine.com The surf’s always up for SLO Coast Wine. In southern San Luis Obispo County on California’s Central Coast, the wineries reside an average distance of just five miles from the ocean, resulting in prevailing coastal conditions that are among the most pronounced of any wine region in California and beyond. Which is why they are known for producing standout Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, aromatic whites and other wines – and for the laidback vibe that locals call the “SLO Life.” From beachfront tasting rooms to storybook backroads, here is what’s shaking in SLO Coast Wine this season:

PHOTOS: STEPHEN ROSS WINE CELLARS

Nuts, Bolts and Grapes: San Luis Obispo’s Urban Wineries While most San Luis Obispo wineries are situated amid scenic settings such as vineyards, villages, canyons, volcanic morros or the seaside, there are a handful that call urban industrial parks and strip malls their home. Indeed, corrugated steel siding, roll-up doors and concrete pads compose the backdrop for San Luis Obispo’s maverick, urban wine mavens who possess small, boutique labels and an independent spirit. Stephen Ross Wine Cellars started a movement in its light industrial neighborhood on Suburban Road in the southern end of San Luis Obispo, and that the area is now home to two wineries and two craft breweries. “We believe in letting ag land be ag land and not building on top of it,” said Paula Dooley, who owns and operates Stephen Ross Wine Cellars with her husband, Winemaker Steve Dooley. “Wine-centric visitors –as opposed to view-centric customers – generally appreciate a tour into our cellar and the quiet, distraction-free tasting environment,” she said. “We focus on the wine.” Producing a range of sophisticated varietal wines, Stephen Ross is famed for its elegant Pinot Noirs made from its estate Stone Corral Vineyard. The winery is celebrating its 25th vintage this year. Visitors don’t seem to mind the absence of a full-blown hospitality center at Deovlet Wines, which is also located on Suburban Road. “People seem enthusiastic about tasting next to the barrels and tanks,” said Owner-Winemaker Ryan Deovlet, who specializes in Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and red blends. “They comment on how they feel closely connected to our dreams by tasting in this start-up, first generation, garagiste winery. Our

humble abode may be just an industrial building, nuts and bolts and metal siding, but it's filled with passion and courage and strength of heart within our dedicated, hardworking team!” Across town, near the airport and the FedEx shipping office, is El Lugar Wines, which is currently open in a “pop-up” format, just six weekends of the year. The roll-up door entrance has an unsuspecting “speakeasy” feel as guests are surprised and delighted as they walk into an urban space that offers a warm, inviting lounge and bar seating. Here, four vineyard-designate Pinot Noirs are the focus, with one white Pinot Noir Blanc and a cool-climate Syrah rounding out the intimate El Lugar family. The fresh flavors of Croma Vera’s boutique Spanish-style wines emanate from a bustling strip mall just off the southern end of San Luis Obispo’s Broad Street. “Since we are located at the gateway to Edna Valley and its many wineries, Croma Vera is a convenient place for visitors to begin or end their day of wine tasting,” said owner-winemaker Mindy Oliver. She added that the tasting room is also open until 7 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, which is later than most wineries. Added Paula Dooley, “Someone asked me what the difference was between an urban winery and one out in the country. I said, ‘Nothing!’ We all have equipment, and grapes don’t walk themselves in ... they all get on a truck to go somewhere.”

Wine Country This Month: Central Coast


Wines of the West Tasting Room Debuts in Paso Robles Paso Robles’ newest tasting location offers guests an atypical place to sample wine from four different brands

The Central Coast’s newest wine hideout, Wines of the West, is officially open along scenic Highway 46 West in Paso Robles. This maverick outpost is unique in that it allows guests to taste a wide variety of wines in one unconventional location. Wines of the West will be joined at the site by fellow rebel rousers, Heirloom restaurant, who have decided to set down roots at the location and will be serving their California farm fresh food seven days a week. Wines of the West is a new frontier of tasting rooms, designed to feel like two distinct tasting experiences. The front area provides a more traditional setting, serving Clayhouse Wines and Purple Cowboy. The back area, known as the CAN-tina, is a more casual and eclectic tasting space, focused on serving canned wines from If You See Kay and Alloy. Grapes for all four brands are sourced exclusively from Paso Robles AVA (with the exception of the Purple Cowboy sparkling wine) and crafted by a team of local winemakers committed to showcasing the best of the area. Wine choices include Rhône varietals from Clayhouse Wines, where the focus

is on small-bin fermentations. Not to be missed is the Petite Sirah, made from the oldest such vines on the Central Coast. Purple Cowboy focuses on Bordeaux varietals and pays homage to the true winemaker rodeo cowboys. Legend has it that their teeth were stained purple

Wine Country This Month: Central Coast

from tasting as they crafted their blends. If You See Kay wines are an ode to the unconventional, focusing on nontraditional varietals in cans and bottles. This unorthodox brand is paired in the CAN-tina with Alloy Wine Works. Bringing together edgy blends and unique lots that are hand harvested, Alloy is canned wine that reflects the inventive spirit of Paso Robles. Wines of the West Wines of the West is a wine tasting collective located along the picturesque Highway 46 in Paso Robles, owned by the prestigious Vintage Wine Estates. Wines of the West’s collection of four wine brands includes Clayhouse Wines, an ode to the clayhouse relics of Paso Robles’ pioneering past and producer of Rhône varietals; Bordeaux-focused Purple Cowboy, a tribute to the purpleteethed cowboy winemakers of another era; If You See Kay, producer of nontraditional varietals that veer away from the status quo; and Alloy Wine Works, maker of unique, small-lot canned wines. Wines of the West is open daily from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m, and is located at 3750 Highway 46, Paso Robles, CA 93446. You can find them on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter or visit the website at pasowinesofthewest.com.

Rich in multicultural history, indigenous Chumash settlers and Spain’s famous Portola Expedition of the Central Coast were followed by homesteading Swiss-Italian dairyman, Danish, Scotch, Irish and English settlers, Japanese, Portuguese, Chinese, Filipino and Mexican farmers and workers.

Their efforts later became immortalized on street surnames, businesses, schools and even Santa Maria-style BBQ. There’s plenty of sunshine for sightseeing and winery visiting, but dress in layers.

STORY OF SOIL

cultivation of classic grape varietals and world- class wine, including Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Syrah, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio, Cabernet Sauvignon, Viognier and dozens of others. From the time of the earliest settlers, the Santa Ynez Valley has been renowned for the quality of its land, making agriculture, along with ranching, the primary source of the region’s economy. The area’s Catholic missions planted the first vineyards as early as 1804 to produce wine for trade and for use in their services. By the 1870s farmers began to ramp up grape production in earnest. Prior to Prohibition, there were several wineries and approximately 5,000 acres of vineyards in the region; from 1919 to the early 1960s, however, very little was invested in the region’s viticulture, with the weather being considered too cold to produce large quantities of grapes for the jug and fortified wines of the era.

FIGUEROA MTN

When it comes to wine, it’s no secret that California is home to some of the best in the world. But until recently, one of the most unique wine regions in the state was also one of its best kept secrets. Then a little movie called Sideways, which celebrates its 15th anniversary in 2019, happened. Set and filmed on location in the Santa Ynez Valley, the 2004 Oscar-winning film shone a bright light on the incredible wines and gorgeous scenery of the region, spurring visitors to discover and explore the area for themselves. What they found was a wine country unlike any other. The Santa Ynez Valley is set in an unusual mountain configuration that backs up against the coast, rather than running parallel to it. In fact, it’s the longest east-west transverse valley found on the west coast from Alaska to the southernmost part of South America. The result of this unique orientation is a constant inland flow of fog and ocean breezes, creating one of the coolest winegrowing regions in the state. Cooler weather brings a considerably longer growing season than other areas of the state, giving the fruit an unusually long SAN MAR COS PASS RD “hang time” on the vine.154The result is an ideal environment for the

Santa Ynez Valley Restaurant Weeks January 19-31 During Santa Ynez Valley Restaurant Weeks, participating restaurants will offer three-course tasting menus for $20.20, excluding tax and tip. In addition to Santa Ynez Valley restaurants, many tasting rooms and wineries are also offering special wine and small bite pairings for $20.20. On top of the culinary delights, hotels will offer special pricing for overnight accommodations throughout the two weeks.

It wasn’t until experimentation with cooler-weather varietals such as Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in the 1960s that the region began to show its true potential. Many of the Santa Ynez Valley’s most prominent wineries were established in 1970s, with the Santa Ynez Valley AVA being established in 1983. Three decades later, the Valley is home to more than a hundred wineries, consisting mainly of small, family- owned boutique operations. Visitors here get to enjoy a more relaxed, friendly atmosphere than found in the typical wine country, with ample opportunity to chat with the winemaker or owner in the tasting room. Many of the wineries have tasting rooms on- site or downtown in one of the Santa Ynez Valley communities. Wine tasting events throughout the year give oenophiles the chance to sip and savor while enjoying live music, art, winemaker dinners and fine cuisine. In addition to wine, the Santa Ynez Valley features a burgeoning craft beer scene, with several microbreweries and tasting rooms, in addition to the region’s first craft distillery since Prohibition. Each May, local craft brewers come together for the Santa Ynez Valley Craft Beer Week, offering tours, tastings, classes and beer & cheese pairings. The week cumulates with the annual Buellton Brew Fest, featuring nearly 30 breweries from around the region along with live music, food and fun. With six distinct communities encompassing everything from

On Friday evenings (between 5:00-8:00pm) you can accompany your tasting with a gourmet cheese platter or small bites as you “time travel” to this Italian retreat, even if just for a few hours. Less than 10 minutes from Magnavino, you’ll arrive at Four Brix Winery in Ventura. Step into this fun, funky tasting roomwinery to savor wines made from grapes that are an homage to four great grape regions: Italy, France, Spain and California.

A few blocks from Four Brix is Panaro Brothers Winery.

Reaching New Highs with New Year’s Resolutions Every year, when January 1 rolls around, approximately half of the population declares New Year’s Resolutions for being healthier, wealthier and happier in the new year. Such resolutions are a tradition dating back to 150 B.C., when Romans would petition their two-faced god Janus (hence, January) to forgive their past transgressions and to look forward with blessing of good fortune. The New Year’s Resolutions most Americans make are to exercise more and lose weight. However, only about 8% attain their goals. Do not be discouraged! If better fitness is your top New Year’s Resolution, consider how cannabis can support you in reaching your highest level of fitness. The number one reason for using cannabis medically is pain relief. If you are starting a new, exuberant exercise routine, chances are you will be experiencing days and nights of sore, stiff, aching muscles and joints. Topical salves, creams, and ointments infused with CBD/THC are known to bring relief and comfort. Pain is usually experienced when muscle spasms due to a chemical “messages” that are sent from your central nervous system to the part of your body being overstressed or traumatized. CBD/THC counteracts the flow of this chemical messenge with a boost of endocannabinoids that naturally soothe away pain. Part of why cannabis is so effective in pain relief, body work, and professional massage is that it impersonates endocannabinoids, which in turn expands muscle elasticity, thereby triggering relaxation and reducing pain.

44

Choosing a Salve or Topical When choosing for yourself or your massage therapist, follow this advice for successful pain management. First, everyone experiences pain differently and what may work for others may not work for you. So, start small and experiment with different products. Be aware of your skin’s sensitivity. You can always increase your usage, so start moderately, as you should also do with your exercise program. Whether your choice is infused with THC or CBD, salves containing these cannabinoids are popular on the market today and are not known to be psychoactive. You might find yourself relaxed, you might find your back feeling a little less tight, but you should not be experiencing a mental high, except for that happy feeling when pain is reduced or relieved Not all topicals are that same. Read your labels and ask your dispensary staff questions about ingredients. A good label detail is the reassuring “Made with All-Natural Ingredients.” Some of the natural ingredients used in both THC and CBD salves are Vitamin E, eucalyptus oil, coconut oil, green tea and camphor. These natural ingredients can lead to enhanced aromatics and faster skin absorption. Also, seek out plant-based sustainable salves, especially if the product is made from the whole plant. Whole-plant products get the benefit of full spectrum oils, which contain an array of essential compounds.

Wine Country This Month: Central Coast


DIY Cannabis Salves If you’d like to reduce your costs and increase control of ingredients in your topical, consider making your own salves and ointments. The Ganja Grande Dame says it’s easy to combine your homegrown flowers, leaves, and larf (tiny loose buds, usually low on the plant) with your favorite oils, essential fragrances, fresh herbs, and emulsifying compound to make an effective and unique salve. As your experience and knowledge of using cannabis increases, you will find many way to use full-spectrum, natural plant products to decrease not only your exercise strains and pains but also to reduce or eliminate chronic nerve pain, sore feet, inflammation, joint pain, arthritis, rashes and other sources of discomfort. With so many people willing to explore unique natural plant-based paths toward pain relief and reporting positive results trying a lotion, topical or salve infused with CBD/THC
