DFV Ups Monterey Presence With Santa Lucia Highlands Vineyard Buy

Delicato Family Vineyards (DFV) has acquired River Road Vineyard in the Santa Lucia Highlands from the McFarland family. The purchase, which was made for an undisclosed sum, includes 243 acres planted to Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Riesling. DFV said it will begin incorporating fruit from River Road in future luxury programs, and also pursue replanting, with focus on Pinot Noir.

River Road was originally planted in 1972 by the late Jerry McFarland, whose family will continue to source fruit from River Road for the McFarland brand. For DFV, the acquisition complements the company’s existing Monterey vineyard holdings, which include the San Bernabe Vineyard in the sub-appellation of the same name.

The Grapes Behind Italian Red Wines

U.S. wine changed forever 40 years ago, but not just at a blind tasting in Paris

Yet there was another event in 1976 that had a similarly profound effect on the industry and on American wine, even on the wider foodie culture staring out at us from magazines, newspapers, TV shows and restaurant menus. On June 4 of that year, the New York Legislature passed the state’s Farm Winery Act. Gov. Hugh Carey signed it the same day.

Becoming Bogle: How a 2-million-case Winery Keeps that Family Feeling

What may be less known is the company’s commitment to sustainability. All 1,600 of the company vineyards are certified sustainable under the stringent “Lodi Rules” regulations and, in an unusual extra step, the company pays a bonus to growers they source from who meet the same standard.

White Wines for Red Wine Drinkers

 

There are several white wines that go above and beyond the typical fruity-fresh white style and deliver a savory complexity that is worthy of even the most ardent red wine fan.

Wine-store signs often deceptive, group says

This means nearly 90 percent of stores had signage promoting wine ratings for bottles containing vintages not actually for sale. In some cases, the vintage had not yet been rated so an older rating had been displayed.

Whale vomit beer could be the next big thing

California Regulation Requires Warning Labels for BPA

Retailers and tasting rooms are required to post 5” X 5” signs at the point of sale.

Join Betsy Barry of Franklin Yoga & Wellness and Mark Lenzi of Franklin Liquors for a sensory exploration of wine through the energy systems of the body.

This unique workshop combines a 6o-minute yoga class with a carefully sequenced wine pairing designed to open and balance the major energy centers, known as “chakras.” With a heightened sense of awareness, we will explore each chakra through physical observation of each shared wine, discovering taste, flavor and feel in a new way.

No prior knowledge of yoga or wine is required. Plan to bring an open mind and leave feeling balanced and satisfied with a new appreciation of both wine and self.
