In all the clatter over pinot noir, the Grape of the Moment, it's easy to forget that the Santa Cruz Mountains appellation also grows some really good cabernet sauvignon and related red Bordeaux grapes. One of California's best cabs, Ridge Monte Bello, comes from a site above Cupertino, and a number of other wineries have had success with the grape, albeit often in tiny quantities.
Wine Club India Some of the appellation's earliest recognition, in the late 1800s, actually was based on cabernet sauvignon. By 1889, more than 100 acres of cabernet and other Bordeaux varieties were planted in the Santa Cruz Mountains, and some of the wines received international acclaim. The high quality of cabernet is a prime reason that the section of the mountains running from Woodside to the Lexington area near Los Gatos became known as the "Chaine d'Or," or golden chain.
Wine Business In India Today, according to the Santa Cruz Mountains Winegrowers Association, about 1,500 acres of grapes are planted in the appellation, with cabernet accounting for about a quarter of that acreage.

Wines From India KENWOOD, Calif., Nov. 4, 2013 -- /PRNewswire/ -- Thanksgiving is almost upon us, which means now is the time to select wines for the big feast. Fortunately, choosing wines that pair deliciously with Thanksgiving dinner can be quick and easy; all you need do is let your dinner and your preferences be your guide.
Wine Club India The traditional Thanksgiving dinner encompasses a range of flavors: rich, herbal, sweet and creamy. Wines that handle such diversity best are those that complement or accentuate, but don't overpower. The key is moderation; less – in terms of power, alcohol, tannin and oak – is actually more in achieving scrumptious Thanksgiving wine matches. And because Thanksgiving is a truly American holiday, it deserves to be celebrated with American wines.

Like many things at Pfeiffer Vineyards near Junction City, the creation of an event center that would join an outdoor water garden and an indoor tasting room happened pretty much organically.
The Wine Society Of India Owners Robin and Danuta Pfeiffer already had a concrete crushing pad that they used to process grapes. So they built a roof over it this year to protect workers from rain.

Wineries In India Evidence would indicate that Croatia could be the cradle of wine grapes, with cultivation of "vitis vinifera" dating back some 8,000 years. Perhaps Croatia's greatest contribution to wines we enjoy today is Zinfandel.
The Wine Society Of India In fact, experts now believe Zinfandel and Primitivo are clones of an obscure Croatian grape called Crljenak Kastelanski. In the vineyard, Zin and Primitivo are not identical, and our federal government recognizes them as separate varieties.

Ray Isle ( @islewine on Twitter ) is Food & Wine's executive wine editor. We trust his every cork pop and decant – and the man can sniff out a bargain to boot. Take it away, Ray.
Vineyards In India Being a wine critic, of course, this prediction chilled me to my very bones. Apparently, despite the fact that the world’s vineyards produce some 2.8 billion cases of wine each year, we want more than that. We’re a wine-crazed bunch, we humans.
Wineries In India But before the riots in the street start, I should also point out that several other financial institutions weighed in just the other day, more or less saying that Morgan Stanley’s report was so much hogwash (if you wash your hogs with wine, that is; not many people do, but it does make them an attractive purple color). These other financial experts note that wine production in 2013 is up, that we used to be swimming in a lake of surplus wine and now we are not (a good thing), and that all this vinous doom and gloom is mighty darn premature.
