WINE COUNTRY: AN INTRODUCTION

the agrarian rhythms of the farms that canvass the landscape. The Mayacamas Range, which runs roughly north from the edge of San Francisco Bay, divides Napa and Sonoma counties. Napa Valley, situated on the eastern side, which comprises most of Napa County, stretches north to Mount St. Helena. Sonoma County spreads west, over hills that lead to rocky cliffs pounded by the Pacific Ocean, and north, past the Russian River and into the redwood forests. Separated by mountains, the two counties are deeply intertwined, united in a history that revolves around the grape.

THE ROOTS OF WINE COUNTRY

Napa County may have been the first to garner international recognition for its wines, but Wine Country’s first wines came from Sonoma County. In the 1820s, Franciscan monks planted vines at Mission San Francisco de Solano (which stands today in the heart of the town of Sonoma), the last in the chain of missions established by the Spanish to “civilize” California’s indigenous peoples. The missionaries’ holy wine set the stage for all that followed. The Franciscans sent some of their vines over the Mayacamas mountains

he best wines are grown in lovely places: the slate slopes of Germany’s Mosel; the tawny, sun-warmed hills of Tuscany; the hardscrabble terraces of Portugal’s upper Douro; the lush length of France’s castle-lined Loire; and, of course, the rolling hills and verdant vales of California’s Napa and Sonoma counties. Welcome to Wine Country, a region defined by the land and the glorious bounty it produces. Though a mere hour’s drive from the bustling cities of San Francisco and Oakland, Wine Country is a world apart. The pace of life is set by


MO M E N T S I N W INE C OU N T RY HIST ORY 1823 THE MISSION

Spanish Franciscan monks found the Mission San Francisco de Solano, the last of the California missions, in the town of Sonoma.

1836 NAPA’S FIRST SETTLER

Frontiersman George Yount founds the first homestead in Napa County, near what is now Yountville.

1846 BEAR FLAG REVOLT

Settlers in Sonoma rise up against Mexican rule. Mexican General Mariano Vallejo surrenders without resistance, and the settlers declare the Republic of California. A homemade flag featuring a star and a bear is raised in the town of Sonoma. Within a month, the United States annexes Northern California.

1857 WINE TAKES ROOT

Agoston Haraszthy founds Buena Vista Winery, Wine Country’s first commercial winery, in the town of Sonoma. Haraszthy would later bring the first European grapes to the region.

with George Yount, a frontiersman who spent time at the mission before moving to Napa County, where he established the county’s first homestead. He planted his first vineyard in 1836. Wine took root toward becoming an industry in 1857, when an adventurous Hungarian rapscallion named Agoston Haraszthy opened Buena Vista Winery, Wine Country’s first commercial winery, in Sonoma Valley. German immigrant Charles Krug worked for Yount before starting Napa County’s first commercial winery in 1861, in St. Helena.

The early settlers did not live on wine alone. They grew wheat, potatoes, and fruit, raised livestock, and cut timber. Gold seekers wintered in the region, lawlessly fueling the local economy. But the region’s foggy mornings, cool and wet winters, and uninterrupted summer sunshine were ideal for growing grapes, and winemaking quickly became the most profitable enterprise. Robert Louis Stevenson, who visited winemaker Jacob Schram’s vineyard in the hills of Calistoga in 1880, wrote in The Silverado Squatters that his wines were “bottled poetry” and that “the stirring sunlight,

1859 A SPA IS BORN

Sam Brannan purchases land at Indian Springs and founds the spa resort town of Calistoga.

German settler Charles Krug founds Napa County’s first commercial winery, in St. Helena.

MO M E N T S I N W INE C OU N T RY HIST ORY 1871 THE FIRST CRISIS

The root louse Phylloxera threatens to destroy the wine industry. Farmers fight back by using hardier rootstocks.

1905 A WRITER AT WORK

Author Jack London, already famous for such works as The Call of the Wild and The Sea Wolf, establishes his Beauty Ranch in Glen Ellen.

1920 AMERICA GOES DRY Solage Calistoga

upping the demand for locally grown fruits, vegetables, meats, seafood, and dairy products. Agricultural land that’s not utilized for grapes is used to grow organic produce or feed free-range livestock. The interdisciplinary nature of wine growing has enhanced the cultural vitality of the region. The industry relies on science, intuition, aesthetic sense as well as business sense—and a dash of luck. The result is a creative, open-minded community. Wineries host musical and theatrical performances, and many are home to art

galleries. Likewise, countless artists have found inspiration in the land. Recreationists enjoy a natural playground in the varied landscape. Parks and open spaces stretch from inland valleys across mountains and through forests to the Pacific’s coastal bluffs. The region’s natural mineral springs have inspired spas that rival Europe’s finest. The region is also an ethnic melting pot. Descendents of Italian, German, French, and Spanish settlers still tend the land; Latino immigrants are a growing presence in both counties; and visitors from around the world give the region a cosmopolitan sensibility rarely found in such a rural setting. Despite Wine Country’s emergence as a travel destination—some 12 million visitors arrive each year—it hasn’t lost its charm. It is still a land of small towns, quirky characters, and hidden treasures. You can’t help but become enchanted by the magic of the vine.

The passage of the Volstead Act establishes Prohibition. Commercial wineries suffer, but grape growers survive by selling to home winemakers around the country.

1933 A NATION CELEBRATES

Prohibition is repealed, but the damage to the California wine industry is slow to heal.

1966 THE RENAISSANCE

Robert Mondavi opens his estate winery, spurring the resurgence of commercial winemaking in Wine Country.

1976 FRENCH TOAST

California wines gain international fame when two of them win the top prize in a French wine competition.

Today WINE FOR THE WORLD

Napa and Sonoma counties are home to more than 500 wineries. World-class wines, delicious food, beautiful scenery, and vibrant culture attract millions of visitors from around the world.

SPORTS AND OUTDOOR ENTHUSIASTS will find no shortage of adventure in Wine Country. Those with lofty aspirations can enjoy biplane rides and hot-air ballooning (Napa Valley has the busiest balloon corridor in the world). Perhaps your feet prefer terra firma? Hikers can take their pick of terrain, from spectacular coastal bluffs and beaches to majestic redwood forests and the 4,339-foot Mount St. Helena, from whose peak you can see San Francisco, the Sierra Nevada range, Mount Shasta, and even the Pacific Ocean. Rock climbers will find cliffs aplenty on the coast, where they can cool their heels with salt spray. Narrow country lanes that wind through enchanting, vine-studded hills offer cyclists scenic rides. Equestrians can saddle up in several state and regional parks and recreation areas. Water lovers opt for canoes and kayaks on the Russian River or spend a day boating or paddling on Lake Sonoma and Lake Berryessa, investigating tidepools at a marine reserve, diving for abalone along the Sonoma coast, or fishing off Bodega Bay. Recreational opportunities in Napa and Sonoma counties are virtually inexhaustible. Dive in! 34

WHEN SAM BRANNAN SET OUT IN 1846 TO LEAD A MORMON settlement expedition to the West, no one could have predicted he’d become the father of California spas. At the time, few people other than the native Wappo Indians were paying heed to Northern California’s bubbling brew of sulfurous hot springs and gushing geysers. Brannan, however, knew the moneymaking power of New York’s Saratoga Springs and saw an opportunity. He began snatching up acreage at the northern end of the Napa Valley, and supposedly announced, in a tongue-tied drunken moment, that he would build “the Calistoga of Sarafornia!” Thus—at least according to lore—was the great spa town named. Today, Calistoga’s spas and resorts offer everything from locally ubiquitous mud and mineral water baths to exotic treatments such as sea kelp and lavender body wraps and rose-petal facials. And Calistoga is just one slice of Wine Country spa heaven: You’ll find all manner of destinations in Napa and Sonoma counties guaranteed to leave you feeling relaxed and pampered. 40

MICHAEL CHIARELLO Food Network host and former Iron Chef contestant Michael Chiarello owns the lifestyle brand Napastyle, a winery, and two restaurants, including Bottega in Yountville. Here are his tips for ordering like a Wine Country local: Fall “Wild mushrooms—on pizza or in a simple pasta. That’s the great thing about fantastic mushrooms: They don’t need many other ingredients to bring them to life.” Winter “Citrus: That’s our sunshine in the cloudy days of winter. I like a whole roasted fish with Meyer lemons, and citrus cocktails.” Spring “Asparagus. In the beginning of the season, the skins are tender. I like them with a salad or whole, roasted in the oven.”

CEDRIC GLASIER

Summer “Tomatoes, tomatoes, tomatoes. You can have a threecourse tomato meal.” Anytime “Poultry. Petaluma is the poultry capital of the West: quail, duck, chicken, turkey. And the lamb is spectacular.” botteganapavalley.com.

TOURING WINERIES SHOULD BE A SENSORY EXPERIENCE, not an intellectual one. However fascinating the technology of winemaking—from the gleaming finish of the stainless steel tanks to the hulking oak barrels lining the cool walls of the cellar—wine tasting is the best, most fun, and most efficient way to understand wine. The wine-tasting room offers a relaxed, cordial setting in which to investigate intriguing blends, challenge and expand your palate, and find out what you like and don’t like. Your hosts will help you understand how a wine’s color, aroma, taste, and texture—the teeth-etching acidity of a Sauvignon Blanc, the silky suppleness of a Pinot Noir—engage the senses. Ask your host to explain why Cabernet Franc often evokes the flavor of a bell pepper or why a little Semillon is blended into their Sauvignon Blanc. Tour a winery to understand the complex processes involved in making a sparkling wine. Take part in a wine and food pairing to learn how certain varietals and foods complement each other. Tasting wine will help you learn to trust and value your palate—an ability that will come in handy when a waiter hands you the wine list. 70

NAPA WINERY LISTINGS

NAPA COUNTY

American Viticultural Areas ATLAS PEAK The mountainous terrain here is cooler year-round than the valley floor, and the volcanic soil, which often requires irrigation, yields higher acidity Cabernet Sauvignons and Sangioveses, and crisp Chardonnays laced with floral and pear flavors. CALISTOGA This historic wine-making region—known for Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, and Syrah—gained official AVA status in 2010. The area is distinguished by high elevation, volcanic soil, and the highest diurnal temperature variation in the valley. CHILES VALLEY Protected by the surrounding hills, Chiles Valley is mostly warm, but its higher elevation means cooler nights. The Cabernet Sauvignons, Merlots, Rhône varieties, and Zinfandels from here are strong and juicy, with unmistakable blackberry, chocolate, and plum flavors. Chardonnays and Sauvignon Blancs are on the lighter, crisper side. COOMBSVILLE Napa’s newest AVA (designated in 2011) is tucked away in a quiet southeastern corner of the valley, with soil containing abundant rock, gravel, and layers of volcanic ash. The area’s Cabernet Sauvignon and other Bordelais varietals are marked by soft but significant tannins and underlying layers of earth and mineral flavors. DIAMOND MOUNTAIN Afternoon breezes and marine air keep this region cool. The Cabernet Sauvignons, Cabernet Francs, and Merlots are firmly structured, rich, and very tannic when young, with strong black currant, mineral, and cedar flavors, and have excellent aging potential. The Chardonnays are full-bodied with peach and green apple aromas. HOWELL MOUNTAIN Across the valley from Spring Mountain, this AVA is warm and dry thanks to abundant afternoon sun. High elevations and cool nights help maintain good acidity. The soil is volcanic and shallow, but the red wine grapes are powerful and rich in tannins, with superb aging acidity. LOS CARNEROS Breezes from San Pablo Bay keep Carneros cool year-round, ideal for sparkling wines. The main varietals from this shallow, clay-filled soil are spicy pear and apple Chardonnays; lightly herbal Merlots; spicy, intense Syrahs; and Pinot Noirs that yield cinnamon and cherry flavors. MOUNT VEEDER The fog rarely reaches these vineyards, making for warmer nights. Wines from these grapes are intense and age well, yielding Bordeaux-style tannic reds such as Cabernet Sauvignons, Merlots, and Zinfandels, as well as Chardonnays with good acidity. OAK KNOLL DISTRICT OF NAPA VALLEY AVA The marine morning air and fog keep this region cool, producing Merlots and Cabernet Sauvignons that benefit from the longer growing season and are defined by cassis, tobacco, and spices typical of Bordeaux-style reds. The Chardonnays yield apple and tropical fruit flavors.

SONOMA COUNTY

American Viticultural Areas ALEXANDER VALLEY Named after pioneer Cyrus Alexander, this AVA is adjacent to the Russian River. The area’s tame Cabernet Sauvignons rarely need to be mellowed by blending with Merlot. Earthy Zinfandels, Merlots, French Syrahs, Italian Sangioveses, and Chardonnays are all prolific here. BENNETT VALLEY With fewer than 700 acres, and farmed mainly by small independent growers, this AVA is defined by a long growing season that maximizes flavors, increases concentration, and softens tannins. Cool weather produces varietals such as Merlot, Syrah, Chardonnary, and Pinot Noir. CARNEROS Carneros’s cool morning fog blankets lightly soiled hills that roll over into Napa County. Pinot Noirs that evoke strawberries, Chardonnays with light peach notes, and spicy, intense Syrahs thrive here. More recently, the area has begun to produce Merlots full of cassis flavor. CHALK HILL Named for its whitened volcanic-ash hillsides, which afford excellent drainage, this central AVA produces mineral-filled Sauvignon Blancs, sturdy Chardonnays, and black currant and cassis Cabs, as well as Cabernet Francs and Merlots. DRY CREEK VALLEY The valley’s stony soil and warm days tempered by morning Pacific fog yield excellent Sauvignon Blancs and what’s considered by many the quintessential Zinfandel. FORT ROSS–SEAVIEW Carved out of the large Sonoma Coast AVA in 2011, this mountainous area near the Pacific Ocean is above the fog line, with longer periods of sunlight. It is known for its Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. GREEN VALLEY The coldest AVA in Wine Country, Green Valley is where a grape variety’s fruity components can best mature. Chardonnays, Gewürztraminers, Pinot Noirs, and Sauvignon Blancs are flavored by nutmeg, cinnamon, and floral aromas.

OAKVILLE This AVA is moderately warm, cooled by early morning and night fog, which maintains consistent acidity levels. This is Cab country, with Cabs the main varietal, along with Merlots, which are heavy with currant and mint. The Sauvignon Blancs are full-bodied.

KNIGHTS VALLEY In the warmest AVA, Sauvignon Blancs with hints of fig and melon ripen best here. Rich reds and Bordeaux Meritage varietals such as Cabernet Sauvignons and Francs, Merlots, Malbecs, and Petit Verdots are also excellent.

RUTHERFORD Early-morning fog moderates the year-round warmth here, and the volcanic soil’s deep and fertile gravel and sand have made this region Cabernet country as well. The cherry flavor is intense, but the tannins are supple enough to withstand longer aging.

ROCKPILE In the county’s northwest corner, this newest AVA is defined, as its name suggests, by bare ridgelines and demanding soils. The higher elevations mean cooler temperatures but greater sun exposure, producing intense, defined Zinfandels, Petite Sirahs, Syrahs, and Cabernet Sauvignons.

SPRING MOUNTAIN High elevations and cool nights maintain good acidity here. Thanks to great drainage and low fertility, the Cabernets, Merlots, and Zinfandels yield powerful and rich tannins and superb aging acidity. The chardonnay grapes emit less juice but deliver an intense citrus flavor.

RUSSIAN RIVER VALLEY This is Pinot Noir territory. Where most red wines strive for flavor, Pinot Noirs are about texture, and here the morning river fog combines with the afternoon sun to develop mature fruit with complex flavors.

STAGS LEAP This AVA is on the warm side, and the heat radiating from sun-soaked rocks then cooled by the bay yields Cabernet Sauvignons, Merlots, and Sangioveses that have a velvety texture. The wines are defined by rich cherry flavors and supple tannins. Chardonnays and Sauvignon Blancs yield citrus and apple flavors.

SONOMA COAST The coolest part of Sonoma County, this AVA receives twice as much rainfall as the other AVAs. Grapes achieve their fullest flavor here by growing above the morning fog line on slopes farther inland. Known wines here include creamy Chardonnays and black-cherry Pinot Noirs.

ST. HELENA Little fog or wind penetrates this valley, where the sun and the gravelly, claylike soil yield Cabernets, Merlots, and Zinfandels, which all have rich berry flavors and are well structured. Rhône varietals such as Syrah are slightly earthy and supple.

SONOMA MOUNTAIN Well above the morning fog line, this diverse AVA yields Cabs that are of the Bordeaux style as well as excellent Pinot Noirs and Sauvignon Blancs. Steep slopes, well-drained soil, and full morning light conspire to yield an intense currant flavor with touches of blackberry.

WILD HORSE VALLEY This warm AVA in the east is cooled by the winds of nearby Suisun Bay. The volcanic soil often requires irrigation and yields cherry-like Cabs and Sangioveses, along with crisp, floral, pear-like Chardonnays. YOUNTVILLE The moderate climate here—cool, foggy mornings and breezy afternoons—yields Cabernet Sauvignons and Merlots that are rich in flavor and firm in tannins. The Chardonnays are XXXXXXX crisp and apple-like, and the Sauvignon Blancs are loaded with lemon flavor.

82

WHAT IS AN AVA? American Viticultural Areas (AVAs) are regions whose climate and soil create unique growing conditions. Grapes from a particular AVA have distinct characteristics—flavors, acidity, textures. Most winemakers blend grapes from various AVAs to maximize these characteristics. If an AVA is named on a label (just beneath the wine’s name or grape variety), at least 85 percent of the wine’s grapes come from that AVA. See the winery maps starting on page 90 for the location of each AVA.

The Insiders Guide to Wine Countr y

SONOMA VALLEY Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs for table and sparkling wines are produced from this AVA’s cooler areas. Chardonnays with hints of apple and Cabs heavy with the flavor of currants come from varieties grown up-valley. Zinfandels with peppery, spicy, and raspberry flavors come from grapes even higher up the ridges.

E X C U R S I O N S Five Perfect Days in Wine Country

V Marketplace, Yountville

ALTHOUGH WINE CERTAINLY GETS STAR BILLING, Wine Country is about so much more than grapes. For lovers of art, history, music, food, and just plain fun, this region possesses an embarrassment of riches. Follow your bliss on one of these five tailored itineraries, or pick and choose from each to put together your own perfect Wine Country adventure.

9 A.M.

NOON

7:30 P.M.

Trust us when we say that braving the line at Bouchon Bakery for Thomas Keller’s heavenly, fresh-from-the-oven pastries paired with espresso beverages are worth the wait. Meander up Washington Street to ogle his breathtaking French Laundry garden as you nibble your pain au chocolat. Once you tear yourself away from this heavenly view, continue north to Napa Valley Bike Tours, where you can rent individual Specialized bikes or hop on a tandem for some morning exercise and fresh air. Cruise around town on your own or with a tour to marvel the vineyards along Yountville Cross.

Indulge a hearty appetite with an outdoor table at Redd Wood, Chef Richard Reddington’s rustic pizzeria, for scrumptious pastas, artisanal pies, and curiously clever cocktails. Once sated, pop into nearby V Marketplace for specialty shopping, art galleries, and fine dining. Browse apparel and home and wine products before stepping into Napastyle Wine Bar or V Wine Cellars for a tasting and a bottle of boutique wine. Then, soothe stiff muscles with a couples massage in one of Spa Villagio’s signature suites with an outdoor jacuzzi.

Unless you made reservations two months ago, dinner at The French Laundry is probably out, but you will not be disappointed with an unforgettable feast at Bottega. Crowned Esquire magazine’s Chef of the Year in 2013, Michael Chiarello himself just might make an appearance at your table for a photo opp. Don’t miss his famed ricotta gnocchi and polenta in a jar. If you’re not ready to pass out from your food coma and want to rub billiardplaying elbows with locals, you can party and play pool until 2 a.m. at Pancha’s, one of the valley’s best dive bars and the only late-night watering hole in town.

Crush Ultra Lounge at The Meritage Resort and Spa, Napa

11 A.M.

NAVIGATING NAPA

Meander the marketplace, and work up an appetite just in time for lunch at the Healdsburg Shed, housed in an industrial garage. This mercantile arcade celebrates all things local, with everything from produce and garden goods to housewares and workshops. Take a seat to nosh at the cafe, or sip ciders at the fermentation bar. For a little glitz and glamour, book a tasting at JCB Tasting Room and Wine Bar just off the square.

9 A.M.

Locals love the approachable ambience found at Alexis Baking Company and Cafe, known for its delectable breakfast menu. Perk up with coffee and cornmeal pancakes before a walk around downtown Napa’s charming antique shops and tasting rooms. Looking for a dog-friendly park? Take Fido to play fetch at Alston Park, where locals go to hang with their furry friends. 1 P.M.

C O U R T E S S Y O F T H E M E R I TA G E R E S O R T A N D S PA

7:30 P.M.

To really indulge your sense of taste, why not go on a global gastronony tour? No matter what you’re craving, from Moroccan meals at Pizzando to Greek grub at Taverna Sofia, this locale is brimming with international flavor. Try one of ten po’ boy combinations at The Parish Cafe, or opt for fancier fare by the fireplace at Charlie Palmer’s Dry Creek Kitchen.

Fans of San Francisco’s Ferry Building Marketplace will love the slightly smaller Oxbow Public Market in downtown Napa. Purveyors include Hog Island Oyster Bar, Gott’s Roadside, The Fatted Calf, Ritual Coffee Roasters, and glutenfree specialists Cate and Co., to start. Stop by for Locals Night every Tuesday from 5 to 8 p. m. to enjoy special menu offerings. Once sated, if it’s sunny, go for a walk along the swanky Riverfront.

If it’s raining, head over to Crush Ultra Lounge at The Meritage Resort and Spa for cocktails, billiards, and bowling. 6 P.M.

A walk through the quirkily decorated storefronts of Napa’s Art on First Street is the perfect warm-up to dinner and a live performance in Napa’s downtown. Head to the Napa Valley Opera House, the Uptown Theatre, or City Winery; each hosts an extensive, intriguing lineup from rock stars to comedians. Soak in the sunset with dinner on the rooftop terrace at The Thomas, an ultra-hip bar and restaurant in a historic building. If you prefer to snuggle up and indulge indoors, book a reservation at Morimoto Napa, the Iron Chef’s west coast flagship Japanese eatery, where you just might see the sushi master himself cruising the floor in his shorts and signature white tennis shoes.
