GREETINGS FROM CHRIS RECENT WINE COMPETITON AWARDS Gusto Gourmet Market & Café - NEW AND EXCITING PRODUCTS EVENTS & LIVE MUSIC 6/2/14 1:18 PM


FOLD

Greetings from Chris While I welcome the sunshine and the warmth of summer, I cannot stop wondering……where has this year gone? We have been so busy with existing operations as well as working on some exciting new projects. Firstly, news from the vineyard. We recently changed vineyard management consultants to Vineyard Professional Services, a local company with enormous depth and experience. Two of the top staff were previously involved with Beckstoffer Vineyards in Napa. They bring a very fresh approach to our farming practices. I have never been too shy to experiment or step outside of the ‘norm’ for my own “endless pursuit of excellence” and VPS also embrace the concept of trying new things, looking to push the envelope.

FOLD

Harvest will be under way by the time the next newsletter is due and I expect the quality to be outstanding, the vineyard is looking great at present. As always, please let me know if you are visiting and I will come by and say hello.

HIGHLIGHTS FROM RECENT WINE COMPETITON AWARDS DOUBLE GOLD GOLD SILVER SILVER SILVER SILVER SILVER

On another note, we have recently discovered our vineyard, Rancho Tierra Rejada, had several celebrity owners in its history. At one point, the vineyard was jointly owned by Wayne Rodgers (“Trapper” from M.A.S.H), Peter Falk and James Caan. We are currently investigating ways we can acknowledge their involvement. One other interesting fact is that when the vineyard was originally planted in 1973 it was the largest single planting of Merlot in the United States…more fun facts to follow!

GOLD + 90pts GOLD + 89pts SILVER SILVER SILVER

I made mention last year of trying to develop a Merlot of ‘Reserve’ quality. Well, we have succeeded! There is a parcel of Merlot from Block 1G that is outstanding. It is currently sitting in new French Oak barrels (l’Ermitage) and is certain to get a lot of attention on its release (maybe late 2015). While we have significant vineyard resources (all Certified Sustainably Farmed) we are currently seeking the real ‘gems’, those unique and exciting lots to isolate and offer to our direct to consumer sales, especially our Wine Club Members.

GUSTO GOURMET MARKET & CAFÉ A L’Olivier Fruit Vinegars (Imported from France) Specialists in oils, vinegars, and condiments since 1822, A L’Olivier introduces their new line of innovative fruit vinegars. Made with fresh fruit puree, sugar and pectin, these vinegars have a rich sauce-like texture and irresistible bright tart-sweetness. They will add a delicious burst of fruit to your favorite salads and savory dishes.

The only question is, with seven delicious and tempting varieties to choose from, which to try first?

Cheers

Finger Lakes International Wine Competition: 2011 BROKEN EARTH Petite Sirah 2010 BROKEN EARTH Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 BROKEN EARTH Grenache 2010 BROKEN EARTH Merlot 2010 BROKEN EARTH Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 QUADRANT Gold - White blend 2010 PULL Cabernet Sauvignon

Some of our new plantings already embrace this philosophy. We have small blocks of new varieties like Malbec, Tannat, Black Muscat, Vermentino and one I am very excited about,Verdelho. We have already made some experimental parcels and are confident future offerings will be certain to delight.

New & Exciting Products

Culinary Uses: Fig - Earthy and honey-colored; drizzle on goat or blue cheese. Lemon Grapefruit - Bright tangy flavors of lemon, pink grapefruit & orange. It is best paired with poultry & seafood and can be used also as a marinade for shrimp & shellfish. Passion Fruit - Ambrosial aroma & taste; toss with fruit, green leaf or seafood salads. Mango - Fruity golden relish: pair with salads and grains or combine with ginger & fruits for chutney. Tomato Basil - Combines well with steamed fish or grilled poultry, as well as a variety of cheeses, most notably those made from sheep’s milk. Raspberry - rich raspberry flavors; fantastic with duck & grilled chops, also pair well with blue cheeses & of course on salads. Black Currant - Full-flavored berry taste & vivid purple color; pairs equally well with salads & duck or pork. 6/2/14 1:18 PM
