Wine or Spirits, Anyone?

e’ve been discussing the idea of having a special issue showcasing the local wine and distillery scene for quite some time. A few years ago, we published a brewery issue that received a lot of attention. In this issue, we are proud to be able to profile a variety of local wineries and distilleries in our First Annual Wine & Spirits Guide. Before we could put together a special Wine & Spirits issue, we had to do some research and a lot of homework. As you could imagine, this project involved visiting many local wineries and distilleries. We encountered very enthusiastic proprietors who were eager to give us tours, explain their processes, and tell us about the history of their establishment and their personal journey. And then there was the wine and spirits sampling – of course we had to sample the products personally! What kind of research project wouldn’t involve sampling? It just seemed like the polite thing to do. We were surprised to learn that there are wineries and distilleries in just about every corner of San Diego County. While most of the distilleries have an urban feel, the wineries were a bit more diverse. There are urban wine tasting rooms that do a fantastic job of sharing their wine. There are small wineries and large wineries. Country wineries and city wineries. Wineries with their own vineyards, and wineries that have offsite vineyards. The bottom line is that there are all types of establishments, and all of them are definitely worth a visit. Derrick Breaux The ZCode Team would like to thank all the local wineries Publisher and distilleries that took the time to meet with us and open their doors (and bottles). And we would like to give a special shout out to the wineries and distilleries that shared our vision and chose to participate in this first Wine & Spirits issue. There wouldn’t have been an issue without these participants, so be sure to put them on your short list to visit (and tell them that ZCode Magazines sent you). Until next time… Cheers!

All the best, Derrick Breaux, Publisher

Theatre at the Mount

PQ Natives Play KAABOO

Mt. Carmel High School’s Theatre at the Mount presents D.O.A. this fall. Take a seat as the school’s Performing Arts Center is transformed into a film noir-style drama, complete with black-and-white sets and live recreations of classic movie previews. The play begins as Frank Bigelow walks into a police station to report his own murder. He has just a few hours to unravel the whodunnit before he succumbs to the poison, during which he encounters a mysterious suicide, shady business deal, femme fatales, and more. D.O.A. is directed by Stacy Michelle Walker. Performances run for two weekends – Nov. 1 through 3 and Nov. 8 through 10 – from 7 to 8:30 p.m. each day. Tickets are available at the door or at www.mchsdrama.com.

Local musicians took the stage at KAABOO this year as Creature Canyon, an LAbased rock band. Lead singer Austin Steele and guitarist Ryan Amyot are both from Rancho Peñasquitos. “My dad is the owner of the The Deli Stop!” Austin said. “Go get some food there!” The PQ natives team up with drummer Kyle Victoria to complete the set. Playing KAABOO was a standout experience for the band. “I think my favorite moment was meeting the guys from Earth Wind and Fire,” Austin shared. Musical connections have been important to their journey – he shared that they recorded their new EP Did You Want That at United Recording in LA. “That was a spiritual experience. Everyone from Frank Sinatra, Michael Jackson to No Doubt recorded there.” Creature Canyon’s latest album, Did You Want That, released last month, and the band has plans to tour in 2019. Stay tuned for more updates at www.creaturecanyonmusic.com.

Student-Run Donation Drive photo by Jennifer Berk

Local students at St. Michael’s Church afterschool Religious Education program are running a donation drive for their Advent Service Project. Collected items will be delivered to the Trinitarians of Mary, an order of nuns founded in 1992 in Tecate, Mexico. The nuns will distribute the donated items to area residents in need. Items needed include: soap, shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, toothbrushes, dental floss, feminine hygiene items, lotion, deodorant, and razors. Donations will be accepted through Dec. 12, with collection boxes on the patio of the church’s Religious Education office at 15546 Pomerado Rd. For more information call 858-485-1392.

Teacher of the Year San Diego County Office of Education and San Diego County Credit Union recently named the five San Diego County Teachers of the Year at the 28th Annual Cox Presents: A Salute to Teachers. Among the five honorees was Katie Wu, a teacher at 92129’s Westview High School (WHS). “This is an exceptionally dedicated and talented group of educators,” said County Superintendent of Schools Dr. Paul Gothold. “While each has unique qualities that helped bring this recognition, they all believe in the power of connecting with students and community.” Katie teaches English, English Prep, and Academic Success at WHS. She emphasizes social support along with academic instruction, with small-group check-ins for Academic Success students, an afterschool writing center, and extra support for students learning English. “It’s not only the high-quality teaching she brings each day to her classroom that sets her apart; it is the emphasis she puts on getting to know each of her students,” WHS Principal Tina Ziegler said.

Rolling Hills Park Renovation After a recent groundbreaking ceremony, the Rolling Hills Park Improvement Project is underway – the first time the park has been upgraded since 1986. The upgrades are a collaboration between the City of San Diego, Councilmember Kersey’s Office, and Sienna’s PlayGarden Community Group. Sienna’s PlayGarden is a Rancho Peñasquitos nonprofit honoring Sienna Marie Palkovic. Sienna loved playing at the park before she passed away at 16 months in 2012. Her mother Jennifer Palkovic founded the nonprofit to revitalize the park for generations of future PQ children. “We are deeply touched by the outpouring of love and support we’ve received to bring this vision to life,” Jennifer said. “The groundbreaking marked a significant milestone in the project and we are extremely grateful for all the kindhearted people who helped with this community effort over the years.” Learn more about Sienna and the project at www. siennasplaygarden.isabellasgiraffeclub.org.

, San Diego s sun-kissed vines offer a taste of history for connoisseurs and casual sippers alike. The area is

,

home to California s first recorded vineyards, planted in the 1700s by Father Junipero Serra. Today, the county boasts over 115 wineries – and more history to be savored with every glass. Our beautiful climate is a key factor for the success of local vineyards, and diverse conditions allow a wide variety of grapes to flourish. Wine grapes tend to be hardier and more water-efficient than other crops, giving them an advantage during drier years. San Diego-grown wines include Albarino, Cabernet Franch, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Grenache, Merlot, Sangiovese, Syrah, Tempranillo, Viognier – the list goes on! THE MORE YOU KNOW A hybrid is two grape types genetically crossed, while a blend combines two grape varieties after fermentation. Terroir is the natural environment for a particular wine – including soil, farming techniques, and climate. A vintage is a specific year or harvest. A varietal is a wine made from a particular grape type.

Vodka can be made from any sugar or starch source – wheat, corn, potatoes, or fruit. Gin is essentially flavored vodka, but must have a predominant flavor of juniper. Generally speaking, whiskey (with an “e”) refers to American and Irish spirits, while whisky (no “e”) refers to spirits made in Scotland, Canada, Japan, or elsewhere.

ven the name says mellow relaxation and big deep breaths: Koi Zen Cellars. This craft urban winery in the heart of Carmel Mountain Ranch has a vibe unlike any other. Like stepping into your best friend’s home, Koi Zen Cellars is a special place for patrons to ‘uncork, sip back, and relax.’ Owner and winemaker Darius Miller’s life was run by pressure for many years, to the point it almost did him in with a stress-induced stroke. After honing his self-taught skills, Darius turned his passion for winemaking from a small-scale project into a beautiful business, allowing guests to reconnect, be in the moment, and take time (and a great glass of wine) to themselves. Koi Zen Cellars’ welcoming and warm ambiance has turned it into a community hangout for wine loving people. Co-owner Lisa Miller attends the Sonoma State Wine Business program, while steward Jon is a Level 1 sommelier en route to his Level 2. Steward Cat comes from the hospitality industry, and “Her infectious smile is loved by all,” Lisa confirmed. Koi Zen sources their grapes from growers throughout California, “giving guests a unique taste experience from all the major wine regions in the state.” Koi Zen creates fruit-forward, approachable, lively, and fun

full-bodied wines – Bordeaux, Burgundy, and Rhone-style reds and red blends among the broad-spectrum list of choices. Their most popular offerings include Cabernet Sauvignon, Viognier, and Zinfandel. The San Diego U-T readers’ poll awarded Koi Zen the best local winery for two years running, and their wines have won awards in competitions from local to international, earning points in the 90s. They give back to local charities and schools by hosting fundraisers. Koi Zen even received the Think Local First championship in 2017 by the San Diego North Business Chamber. Their fundraising efforts and Holiday Gift Extravaganza, coupled with hosting local musicians on the weekends and active memberships in local networking groups and the North San Diego Business Chamber, highlight the business as involved community members. Their tasting room and winery can double as a unique event space for corporate, private, and holiday events. Currently Koi Zen has entered their Crush season, processing 96,000 lbs. of grapes – equivalent to 3,000 cases of wine! They’ll be releasing a Petite Verdot and a few others for the cooler winter months, along with a Frenchstyle Stainless Chardonnay. 

ince 2007, Principe di Tricase Winery has been making wine the traditional way – no added ingredients or sulfites. “We believe that grape juice should be the only ingredient in wine,” explained owner Alfredo Gallone. Alfredo is committed to making the wine the “ancient way,” following in the footsteps of small-country wineries in Italy. Pairing the rustic, old-world style winery with Italian family ambience makes a tasting at Principe di Tricase an unforgettable experience. The winery offers a selection of Italian wines, including Aglianico, Nebbiolo, Aleatico, Barbera, Sangiovese, and Moscato. “Our Dark Rose Aglianico rosé style is very unique,” Alfredo explained. “Aglianico is one of the most ancient wine grapes with a special self-preserving capability that is transferred into the wine, giving it a very characteristic flavor.” A number of their wines have been awarded medals from both national and international wine competitions. Principe di Tricase complements their Italian selection with a number of French wines. The wine list includes Petit Sirah, Sirah, Cabernet Franc, Cab Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Chardonnay, and Sauvignon Blanc. Since the arrival from Italy of daughter Raffaella and son-in-law Alberto, wine tastings are hosted Thursdays through Sundays. It’s a family affair, and Alfredo, Alberto, and Raffaella are proud to personally host guests. They’re joined by Joaco Sanz, a 25-year veteran of the wine industry in Spain. Joaco may look familiar to some as he has been on a number of TV shows about wine and wine pairings. “He was known as ‘El Professor Del Vino,’” Alfredo shared, “the wine professor.” Tasting flights start at $10, but the tasting fee is waived with the purchase of a bottle of wine. Balsamic vinegars and olive oils are also produced in house and available for purchase. A unique pairing on the winery property is the Highland Valley Christmas Tree Farm. “Since we purchased the property, we have been selling Christmas trees, continuing a long tradition,” Alfredo said. For many years, families have been choosing and cutting their Christmas trees on the property. “The smile on the children’s and parents’ faces makes it worthwhile.” Producing excellent wines and maintaining their strong Italian family ambiance are priorities at the winery. “Principe di Tricase and our family are here for you,” Alfredo said. “Please come and visit us and share in the love of excellent wines and an unforgettable experience.” 

reezy days full of sun, cool nights, and rocky soils make Ramona a perfect place to grow wine grapes of exceptional quality and why Ramona Valley is recognized as a designated viticultural area by the federal government. With more than 100 vineyards and over 35 wineries dedicated to crafting unique small-batch wines, Ramona is becoming known around the world as San Diego’s wine country. Crystal Hill Vineyard is one of the newer estate wineries to open its doors. Founded in 2014 with four acres of vines, they have already produced several award winners by focusing on quality at every step of the winemaking process. The founders, Scott and Miki Warner, take a holistic approach to vineyard management and production. They use only organic fertilizers and manage the land towards natural sustainability. “We make the wine in the vineyard,” said Scott. “In other words, what you taste in the bottle is the flavor of that soil enhanced by the story of the season – its challenges and its triumphs.”

ZCODE MAGAZINES WINE & SPIRITS GUIDE 2018

Crystal Hill features great views from its spacious outdoor patio and large porch. There’s also an indoor tasting room with an art gallery and restroom. The service is first class and the vibe is relaxing. They also offer a free tour of the vineyards and cellar with a guide that explains their approach to winemaking and how each piece of winery equipment is used. They currently offer a Chardonnay, a Cabernet Sauvignon, a Syrah, and two Merlots. Each of the wines includes a description of how it was made and from the tour you’ll learn about the special care that goes into every bottle they produce. For food, they provide some munchies with a wine tasting and also offer a cheese plate for $12. You can even bring your own food and make it a picnic! A wine tasting is $10 or free when you purchase one or more bottles of wine. Crystal Hill is dog-friendly, kid-friendly, and has ample parking. There’s space for groups up to 40 – just call ahead to reserve your seating and book your free tour. 

The Kitchen, a Sicilian-California style restaurant, offers exceptional fresh hand-made pasta and brick-oven pizzas, recipes inspired by the Rizzo family. Explore the winery, gardens, and village of unique shops in the winery courtyard. Bernardo Winery is also the perfect backdrop for weddings, special events, the weekly farmers market, and regular live music. “At Bernardo Winery, our winemakers Ross Rizzo and Matty Ward strive to produce wines that best suit the San Diego terroir, wines that love our soil and our sunshine,” shared Samantha Nawrocki, Director of Marketing. “It allows them to play with some interesting varietals that thrive in a Mediterranean, warm climate.” Bernardo Winery produces beautiful silky, full-bodied reds like the Syrah, as well as whites like Albarino and Viognier that burst out flavor notes of citrus and creamy vanilla. Regulars on the tasting menu include Syrah and Petite Sirah, Grenache, Cabernet Franc, Zinfandel, Merlot, Malbec, and Sangiovese for the reds.

For whites, Albarino, Viognier, Chardonnay and Muscat are eager to dig their roots in and call San Diego home. San Diego was, after all, the first place that grapes were planted in California, and they thrive well here from the vine to the bottle. “We still, at Bernardo Winery, after 130 years, make our wines in the same traditional ways,” Samantha said, “while utilizing new technology and viticulture practices to produce wines that truly represent the region today.” 

They took a craft beer approach to wine, developing wines that could be duplicated year after year, even using adjuncts to create new flavors and wines that depart from traditional wine culture. Abnormal has since grown to encompass an open-kitchen restaurant, The Cork and Craft, and a craft brewery, Abnormal Beer Co., to complete a truly unique experience for their guests. The winery has grown a barrel program, including aging wines in spirits barrels, working with local distillery Malahat Spirits and Newtopia Cider to forge truly Abnormal partnerships.

hough the Forgotten Barrel tasting room in Escondido opened in 2017, the property itself is steeped in history. Forgotten Barrel Winery occupies a historic winery, which was established in 1886 as one of the first vineyards in San Diego County and Southern California. It was then purchased by George Ferrara in 1928 and re-opened in 1932 with the passage of the 21st Amendment ending prohibition. During the following 75 years, Ferrara Winery grew to prominence in the California wine industry, and was designated a California historic point of interest in the late 1970s and a historic site by the City of Escondido in 1989. It was operated by three generations of the Ferrara family until 2010. Forgotten Barrel Owner Rodger Grove purchased the winery in 2016, working hard to restore this historic property while continuing to tell the story of the Ferrara family. The winery now offers wines produced on location in Escondido as well as wines produced at its Napa Valley winery. Forgotten Barrel’s winemaker sources grapes from Napa, Sonoma, Central California, and San Diego County. The property’s rustic charm provides a one-of-a-kind setting for weddings, birthday parties, or corporate events, either in the barrel room or in one of its outdoor venues. Forgotten Barrel is proud to be part of the history of the Escondido and San Diego County wine industry. For more information visit www.ForgottenBarrel.com. 

A NEW FORCE to be reckoned with MEET THE SAN DIEGO FORCE COACHES Coach at San Diego Force FC // OCAMPO BROTHERS Bringing the Force of Club and High School Soccer Together After six years of working in the 4S Ranch community, the Ocampo brothers have helped to develop a club soccer culture at the Force FC that is rich with community spirit. Adrian and Jose Ocampo grew up on the streets playing soccer and spending all of their family time watching their dad play at one soccer field or another. Today, they bring that simple, passionate love for the sport to the club level and hope to continue the Nighthawk winning tradition by entering the high school soccer realm. Together, the Ocampo Brothers have shared decades of success at the State, Regional, and National level and have developed top talent on the girls’ side of the sport. The Nighthawks ladies soccer program will offer another opportunity for them to brand their style of play and continue to service the community with nights of enjoyable soccer for families to watch and follow, just like the brothers’ upbringing.

STUDIO WEST OFFERS AFTER SCHOOL WORKSHOPS FOR STUDENTS A

s the new school year begins, students are once again getting to create music at a world-class recording studio by participating in the Studio West After School Workshops. The workshops are led by Andy Walsh, who has been associated with Studio West for over 10 years and brings a wealth of experience as a producer, engineer, and musician. Andy is a 2012 graduate of our own music production program and also holds a B.A. in Music Humanities from UCSD but, most importantly, he creates an amazing environment for students to explore their musical creativity. The workshops center around collaborative and individual projects that challenge students, giving them the tools they need to make their musical ambitions a reality. Students develop their skills by listening to and critically analyzing

the music they love. From this insight, along with the experience of working in Studio West’s professional recording facility, students have the unique opportunity to make recordings that bring their creative visions to fruition. Students meet weekly for 90 minutes in focused groups of three to six students analyzing music, working on original compositions and arrangements, and ultimately recording their performances in the amazing studios. Students learn production techniques and get hands-on time with industry standard hardware and software packages such as Ableton Live and Pro Tools. Recruitment is ongoing and Andy and the Studio West team are always happy to offer tours of the studio to interested students. We look forward to hearing from you! 

When to List It

H

ave you seen the HGTV show, Love It or List It? In the show, a design and remodel team works with the featured homeowner to renovate their existing home, turning it into a space that is functional for their current needs and meets their design expectations. While renovations are taking place, the homeowners meet with a real estate agent to view other homes that might better fit their needs and desires. In the end, the homeowners are left to decide: Love it? Or list it? Will they stay in their existing, newly renovated home, or sell and move to a new home? While you may not have the opportunity to appear on a show such as Love It or List It, you may find yourself in a similar situation. Is it worth it to renovate your current home, or is it in your best interest to sell and move into something different? How do you decide? It’s difficult to find the perfect home, one with just the right amount of storage, the ideal layout, and all the room your family needs. Most homeowners have at least one thing they’d change about their home. If that something is within the four walls of the home, a renovation may solve the problem. However, if

by JEAN RILEY

it’s a matter of location, the size of the yard, or the length of your daily commute that has you feeling discontented with your home, selling might be your best bet. If you’re weighing your options between a home renovation project and selling, here are some questions to ask yourself: What is the real estate market in your area like? What is the biggest issue you have in your home? How long have you been in your home? Are you really ready for a renovation? How does your home compare to others in the neighborhood? Have you outgrown your space? No matter how much you enjoy shows like Love It or List It, remember that this isn’t TV, it’s real life. Take time to weigh all your options before making your decision to love it or list it. Whether you decide on a home renovation or are ready to start the hunt for a new home, contact us for a complimentary consultation. 
