Editor’s Letter Fellow Winos, You are now witnessing the second wave of the American wine revolution. What started in Napa Valley in the sixties with a rag-tag bunch of winemakers has evolved into a national movement of increased wine appreciation and production in the U.S. The torch is now being passed from these “Founding Fathers” to you and I —the next generation of wine drinkers. We are responsible for the massive rise in vino consumption in recent years, and we are now responsible for taking the American grape game to the next level. Knowledge is power, especially when you’re wading through a sea of over 250 wines at The Wine Riot. At our Crash Course Seminars, you can learn about regions like France, Italy and California and meet producers who are creating local ciders and eco-friendly wines. At our Wine Intelligence Unit (WIU) booth, Boston wine experts will help to answer your fermented-grape-related questions. And at each table at the Courthouse, you can consult with passionate winemakers and reps who know their stuff inside and out. We encourage you to learn as much as you can and pass that info on to your friends and family. Together, we can get the entire country to drink more wine!

ABOUT the COVER Throughout history, successful revolutions have been accompanied by powerful and iconic imagery. For the first Wine Riot in April, our cover artist looked to Soviet propaganda posters for inspiration to create an image of young people taking over the means of wine production for themselves (and it had nothing to do with Shepard Fairey, we promise). For Wine Riot II, we’ve adopted an American Revolution theme and, since our event is on Boston’s waterfront, we chose “George Washington Crossing the Delaware” by Emanuel Gottlieb Leutze. The original painting depicts General Washington leading troops across the Delaware River into the Battle of Trenton the day after Christmas in 1776. The message behind our image? The wine world is changing for the better, and with your help, this generation is leading the charge. Join the revolution. Drink more wine! Cover and Guide Design by Holly Gordon:

Crash Couse: Find Romance and Awesome Reds in Vallipocella Room A at 7:30/8:30/9:30 Fair Verona is the setting for Romeo and Juliet and the home of Valpolicella, a small region of Italy that produces stellar wines. From simple yet delicious tables wines to otherworldly vinos worth getting into a gang war over, you’ll taste a range in this crash course.

VIP Night includes some complimentary samples, so make sure to grab a tasty snack from The Daily Catch, The Savant Project and Tavolo!

Alex DeWinter | Grill 23

Alex DeWinter is the overlord of Grill 23’s ginormous (850-bottle) wine list, but he’ll never forget what it’s like to buy wine on a student budget. This top sommelier is always on the hunt for a big red at a reasonable price.

Crash Couse: Livin’ the dream in Napa Room B at 7:30/8:30/9:30 It stands to reason that an award-winning sommelier, wine writer and wine judge would know what tastes good—so it’s no surprise that some of the country’s top wine lists feature Carr’s wine. Come pop a bottle and learn what goes into the making of both a good wine and a great family vineyard. Joseph Carr | Joseph Carr Winery

After working as a sommelier for a numerous major hotel chains, Joseph Carr decided to switch sides and become a winemaker. Now he bottles his own wines under the label Joseph Carr Napa Valley.

Crash Course: France vs California Throw Down Room C at 7:30/8:30/9:30 French fries versus freedom fries. Green beans versus haricots verts. Michelle Obama versus Carla Bruni. These two countries may have a healthy rivalry, but they are cousins when it comes to wine. This course breaks down the regional differences and remarkable similarities between the two. Melvyn Master | Tortoise Creek Wines

Writer, winemaker, restaurateur and all around pro wino Mel Master has been involved in the wine industry for virtually his entire life. He currently makes wine in both France and California with the label Tortoise Creek.

WINE RIOT September 2009 | 9


Crash Courses Knowledge will be dropped during free Crash Course Seminars. Courses occur throughout the Riot sessions, dishing in-depth explanations of specific grapes, regions, and growing trends. Rioters can stop in for complimentary guided tastings and head back to the main floor equipped with stellar tips and know-how to help them face any wine list, party or store.

Bubbilicious: Sparkling Wine from Around the World Bin Ends | Room A Bin Ends offers tremendous deals on close-outs with a Filene’s Basement style pricing system—which means owner and wine buyer John Hafferty knows a good deal when he sees it.

Bin Ends 236 Wood Road Braintree, MA (781) 817-1212

Room A at 1:30pm/8:00pm Cristal is for hip hop videos and rapper wannabes. There’s a world of bubbly outside of Champagne. This class will introduce you to some of the best sparkling wines coming out of Austria, Spain, Italy, and even the US of A.

Chocolate Thunder: Pairing Wine and Chocolate Room A 2:00pm/8:30pm In the world of wine pairing, cheese and fruits are the typical fare, but chocolate? Get it right and it’s pure delight, but get it wrong, and it’s “in your face disgrace.” (Free chocolate bar to the first person to correctly indentify the origin of this phrase.)

A Wine Whose Name Cannot Be Spoken Room A 2:30pm/9:00pm Hungary has been making tasty dessert wines and red currant-inflected reds since the days of the Roman Empire. With names like Kiralyleanyka and Harslevelu, Hungarian wines can be hard to pronounce—but rest assured, they go down easy.

David Milligan | Room A Wine importer and writer David Milligan has been bringing stellar wines into the U.S. since 1996. He started with French wines, then became an expert on up-andcoming regions like South Africa and Chile, with an eye for wines with great taste and terroir.

Real Deals From the Southern Rhone Room A at 3/3:30/4pm + 6:30/7/7:30pm French wines don’t have to be overly fussy or superexpensive. David Milligan takes you on a virtual tour of the Southern Rhone River Valley, reviewing labels and vintages that give you the best value for your money.

Farnum Hill Ciders | Room B This New Hampshire producer makes crisp, traditional ciders from vintage apple varieties, helping to preserve the country’s biodiversity and bringing you some deliciously alcoholic brews that are perfect for fall sipping and food pairing.

10 |WINE RIOT September 2009

It’s Like Wine, but from Apples Room B at 1:30/2/2:30pm + 8/8:30/9 Johnny Appleseed didn’t truck his seeds across the frontier so the pioneers could make pie. Early settlers depended on his trees to make apple-based booze. Farnum Hill has continued this proud tradition with their cidermaking outfit. In this crash course, we’ll taste a variety of cider apples, sip finished ciders, and debunk the Johnny Appleseed myth along the way.

Yellow + Blue | Room B In 20 years, many of the winemakers of the world will (we hope) look a lot like Yellow + Blue. With their organically-grown grapes and eco-friendly packaging (yellow and blue combine to make green, get it?), this California outfit is blazing a trail for other vintners to follow.

downTown wine + spirits Room C Davis Square’s source for hooch carries over 1,300 beers, 1,000 wines, a deep cellar of high-end favorites and almost 200 whiskies, among other libations. Wine buy Jeff Golden will be dropping knowledge and downing—er, sharing samples all day long.

downTown wine + spirits 225 Elm St., Somerville (617) 625-7777

Eco-Minded Wines of the Future Room B at 3/3:30/4pm + 6:30/7/7:30pm If you think farmers are sexier than bankers and bicycles are better than cars, you’ll want to sit in on this crash course, where you’ll learn as much about the way wine is produced as you will about the way it tastes. Yellow + Blue CEO Matt Cain, who’s earned accolades from trendwatchers like Forbes, Fast Company and TastingTable for his innovative techniques, will divulge all the juicy details on starting his company, from sourcing organic grapes in South America to getting customers to drink wines from a Tetra-pack container.

Stop and Smell the German Wines Room C 1:30/3pm + 6:30/8pm Wines from Germany rarely get the attention they deserve. Yes, the labels and lingo are a bit complicated, but that only means you get high quality, delicious wines for less cash. Learn the key to unlocking some of Europe’s best white wines.

Bordeaux is Far from Boring Room C 2/3:30 + 7/8:30pm It’s not all bitches and bling in the wine world’s Beverly Hills. For hundreds of years this region has set the world’s standard for fine wine. The home of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot has a long history and a very interesting future. Chianti: Get That Dirt Off Your Shoulder Room C 2:30/4 + 7:30/9pm Vintage clothes are IN so why not old school wines? From a land of tradition and old wineries comes one of the world’s most ubiquitous yet least-understood wines. Get the low-down on a cat that’s been cool for centuries.

Whether you’re a wine novice or a seasoned wino, it can be quite the challenge to wade through a sea of over 250 wines. It’s for this reason we’ve created the Wine Intelligence Unit (WIU); a rag-tag crew of local wine buyers, certified wine experts and seasoned sommeliers. Stop by with basic questions, rack their brains for their favorite wines at ‘The Riot’ or have them map out a personal tour. These winos are are at your disposal, armed with encyclopedic knowledge of everything related to fermented grape juice. Remember, no question is too “basic” or “simple” and no request is too large. Use this crew to make sure you conquer the Riot! 12 | WINE RIOT September 2009

DRINK MORE WINE! (bu t don’t go overboard)

Sing, dance, take funny pictures, make new friends – but above all, stay on your feet! Make the best of your time at the Riot with these tips:


You can’t get enough water in your system. Bottled water is provided free of charge at the Riot by Polar Water. Drink as much of it as you can! It will keep your body healthy and you on the dance floor -- not on the floor of the bathroom. It will also help you feel a lot better tomorrow morning.


Marathon runners aren’t the only ones who need to carbo-load before the big event. Snacking before and throughout the Riot will help absorb all that vino so you don’t find yourself stumbling after a few sips. We make this easy at the Riot with scrumptious samples from The Savant Project, The Daily Catch and Tavolo. Eat up!


Whether you’re sitting in on a Crash Course, chatting up the members of our Wine Intelligence Unit, or planning your next vineyard road trip with the local winemaker who’s pouring you a glass of bubbly at one of our booths, you’ll have the opportunity to learn interesting facts about wine that you wouldn’t pick up elsewhere. These people came here to answer your questions and teach you about the delicious wines and all the background info--and it’s rare to have so many of them all in one room. So be sure to take advantage of their insight and ask questions, even as you’re holding out your glass for another sample of that killer Sauv Blanc.


Tweet, text or and post hilarious pictures on Facebook -- and be sure to chat, flirt or exchange cards with the real person next to you while you’re at it. It’s time to put the “social” in “social drinker”!
