Keith and Kimberly welcome Ginny Lambrix, Winemaker at Truett Hurst Vineyards

Enjoy the Show (part 4 of 4)

 

Truett hurst Winemaker Ginny Lambrix: Winemaking begins with an understanding of the vineyard and allows for translation of its unique character ginny
through to the bottle. It requires spending a lot of time with the grower, the vineyard and the wine, to try and really understand what each should express in the finished wine.  Truett Hurst allows me to farm biodynamically and make wine. Usually viticulture (the growing of grapes) and winemaking are considered separate jobs. I got lucky – when I was looking to make the transition from viticulture to both winemaking and grape growing, Paul Dolan – a friend and fellow biodynamic practitioner- asked if I would be interested in working on the Truett Hurst project. I still have to pinch myself to believe its real.

Truet Hurst Vineyards: While the formation of the Truett Hurst partnership began in November of 2007, the founding partners worked together at Fetzer Winery years before. At that time, Paul Dolan was Director of Winemaking and hired Phil Hurst, fresh from UC Davis, to work as one of the winemakers. Years later, Phil would hire Paul’s son, Heath, right out of college to work for him. Thirty years after that first meeting, Paul, Heath, Phil and Sylvia Hurst formed a partnership in the Dry Creek Valley. Their vision: create world class wines using biodynamic farming principles. To complete that vision, Mark De Meulanaere and Virginia Lambrix were brought in.

The wines we will be opening are ….

Truett Hurst Russian River Valley 2012 Chardonnay

Truett Hurst Sonoma County Old Vine 2012 Luci Zinfandel

Truett Hurst Sonoma County Old Vine Red Rooster Zinfandel

Truett Hurst Sonoma County 2012 DragonFly Red Field Blend

Silk Road Soda Makes Top Trends of 2014

February 4, 2014

By Silk Road Soda

Wow! What a whirlwind of a trip we had going down to San Francisco to the 2014 Winter Fancy Food show last month. We had high expectations for the event, and they were definitely met! In fact, I’d say they were blown right out of the water, and we are so incredibly grateful for the recognition and positive feedback received for our Silk Road Sodas, and for all the new friends we’ve made along the way.

We even made the list of top 2014 specialty food trends unveiled at Winter Fancy Food Show! A group of food journalists and cookbook authors spent Silk-Road-Soda-athree days scouring the more than 1,300 exhibit booths, searching for the best of the best, to identify the leading food and beverage trends at the show, and the result was the top trends list. Mint was big this year, but of course, we already knew that *:)

The after-burn continued the excitement, as food bloggers and journalists took to their keyboards to give Silk Road Soda a shout out. A couple notable mentions were fromOMG!YummyTrendmonitorSF Gate, and Cooking With Amy. Thanks to all of you for your interest and support in sharing our cherished family recipes with the world.

Spring of 2014 is shaping up to be a busy one, and we’ll be keeping you posted as we move through these busy months. A big thanks to friends, family, retail shops, restaurants & most important, Silk Roaders – your inquisitive and discerning palates will keep us pushing for better, fresher, and cleaner refreshers – always!  Don’t forget to like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter and Instagram, and pin us on Pinterest!

Catalonia Wine Fest

OK this is a post from another source.. and yes we are placing a link here to give credit as we are supposed to do…OK whatever !!! (that’s the ME ME ME syndrome and a different article or post). OK i (Keith Miller) am not really posting this because of the article… now go ahead and click the link. http://www.pressdemocrat.com/home/2413667-181/a-taste-of-catalonia 

The Picture…Can you pick a worse picture ???

Now The Article

Catalonia Wine Fest

Back in 1986 when José and Gloria Ferrer opened a winery in the windswept hills south of Sonoma, Spain’s paella dish and flamenco dance were as uncommon in the area as pinot noir.

Maybe 50 people showed up for the first Catalan Festival the Ferrer family held that year to feature the culture of their home region on the Iberian Peninsula and celebrate the winery’s opening on Arnold Drive.

“At the beginning, no one knew Catalan,” said Eva Bertran, who was an intern back then and is now vice president of marketing. “Now, people arrive wearing red shirts and Spanish soccer jerseys.” More than 1,200 people gathered Saturday and Sunday at the sprawling 250-acre winery in the Carneros wine region for the 22nd annual Catalan Festival.

Catalonia is a region in northeastern Spain where people speak Catalan, a language that evolved from Latin with influences from Spanish, French and Arabic. The Gloria Ferrer Winery event is a fundraiser for the Sonoma Valley Education Foundation. Last year, the winery donated $15,000 to the foundation, and this year Bertran said they hope to top that with proceeds brought in from $75 admission tickets and an auction of paintings, sports memorabilia and vacation packages.

On Sunday, the event drew fans of Ferrer’s signature sparkling wines including a group of labor and delivery nurses from Stanford Children’s Health hospital, a tight-knit group who can rarely share a day off together. Carleigh Burdine, 30, of San Mateo had helped deliver a 7-pound, 11-ounce girl hours before she was stomping grapes at the Catalan Festival Grape Stomp.

Burdine pointed to scrapes on her legs as proof of their determination to stomp the most juice out of the grapes, but they came up short. “We lost, even with all the preparation. I’ve been doing the bar method, running and hiking, I’m in good shape,” Burdine said.

Clos de la Tech Labeling

Posted on Updated on

Keith and Kimberly are looking forward to tomorrows show… Wine and high Tech ?

Join us Live at 10am pst July 19 2014 http://www.iheart.com/live/AM760-381/

Our guest will be Valeta Massey, Owner / Winemaker at Clos de la Tech Vineyards

In the semiconductor business and in the business of making Pinot Noir, “Everything matters!” is our motto. And that holds true right down to the smallest detail of putting labels on our bottles. We start with filled bottles that have been aging for at least two years. These are called “shiners” because they come to the labeling line meticulously cleaned and polished. Every 20 or so bottles, we measure to be sure the front and back labels are exactly the same distance apart around the bottle. Millimeters make a difference!

Bloomberg West TV’s Editor-at-large Cory Johnson reports on T. J. Rodgers’ revolutionary fermentation technology at the Clos de la Tech winery and UC Davis’ wine program.
