Gary Farrell was a winemaking pioneer in California’s Sonoma County, helping establish the Russian River Valley’s reputation for world-class pinot noir and chardonnay. After he sold his eponymous winery in 2004, however, the label essentially became a brand in one corporate portfolio after another. As often happens when a famous winemaker sells, the wine’s quality — and its reputation — seemed to slip.
Wine From India Heredia came to Farrell from Freestone Cellars, located in what has become known unofficially as the “west Sonoma Coast.” At Freestone, owned by the NapaValley-based Joseph Phelps winery, Heredia made a name for herself, crafting racy chardonnay and vibrant pinot noir from picturesque vineyards just a few miles from the Pacific Ocean. Her talents earned her a Winemaker to Watch designation from the San Francisco Chronicle in early 2011.
Wines Of India The west Sonoma Coast and the Russian River Valley aren’t far apart, but their wine styles are. When she visited the District of Columbia earlier this year with Nancy Bailey, the winery’s general manager, I asked Heredia how her experience on the west Sonoma Coast translated to the Russian River Valley.

Neil Patrick Harris says he'll host Oscars in 2015 LOS ANGELES (AP) — Neil Patrick Harris is set to host the Oscars next year.
Red Wine In India I first met winemaker Ryan Deovlet at a wine tasting in Nipomo in 2013. I quickly learned that he’s an artist who puts his heart and soul into his craft, and you can taste it in the quality of his wines. Like other artists in his field, he’s absolutely committed to the pursuit of singling out great vineyards and producing better wines with each vintage. I’ve found the truth of that in the impressive array of chardonnays and pinot noirs Deovlet (pronounced Dev-let) makes for his eponymous brand.
Wine From India Although his vineyard designated wines under the Deovlet label are quite limited, they aren’t the only wines he makes. He has been making delicious wines for Refugio Ranch in Santa Ynez Valley since 2008. This year Deovlet added a new client, Biddle Ranch Cellars in Avila Valley. Few winemakers straddle the border between Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties, yet he goes farther. He also began a sparkling wine project with Paso Robles winemaker McPrice Myers, for which they haven’t created a proprietary name yet.

Harlan spent a lot of time in Bordeaux and said: Meeting the families in whose hands they’d resided generation after generation, witnessing the noble pursuit of creating something artful from the land at the highest possible level, shifted the paradigm of the romantic little vineyard to that of a wine growing estate that might, in time, with the right team, yield a wine that would be welcomed among the first growths.
India Vineyard Harlan still personally picks the grapes from his vineyards and produces fewer than 2,000 cases a year.

IMG_4699.JPG The vines at Ducard are empty now, having just been harvested, but will be full of fruit next summer.
India Winery At the base of the mountains, just off Gibson Hollow Lane in Etlan, sits DuCard Vineyards, a destination for wine lovers, created more than a decade ago by the purchase of a weekend home.
Vineyards India Former Washington, D.C. residents Scott and Karen Elliff didn’t set out to own a winery, it just kind of happened. Scott began his career at the White House budget office and served as a partner in several consulting firms before starting and running his own firm for more than a decade. The pair purchased their Madison property 16 years ago as a weekend getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city. At the time, the front vista of their getaway featured an old apple orchard which had been left untended for years. When the piece of property came up for sale, the Elliffs purchased it.
