Quietly, though, the formula for California chardonnay, if such a thing can be said to exist, has been recalibrated. The stereotype of an almost sweet oak-rimmed butter bomb with its cornucopia of tropical fruit flavors has given way (or at least made room) for something much finer, leaner and more energetic.
Winery In India The pendulum has been swinging back toward the middle of the stylistic spectrum for a decade, not just for chardonnay but for cabernet sauvignon, pinot noir, zinfandel and the rest. Yet the shift has been especially striking for chardonnay, which for so long symbolized the polarized feelings of wine drinkers toward California. Many people loved the over-the-top exoticism of those wines. But a significant number hated them as well, which gave rise to the ABC method of ordering white wine, that is, anything but chardonnay.
Vineyards In India Make no mistake: chardonnay has never gone away. It is by far the most planted wine grape in California, according to the Agriculture Department, with more than 95,000 acres in 2012, as against the runner-up, cabernet sauvignon, with around 79,000 acres. The second-most-planted white wine grape? Around 24,000 acres of French colombard, grown mostly in the Central Valley and used for cheap wines and brandy.

An OC Beach Party Fetes California Wines Pretty settings in the OC and Santa Barbara, plus vino, make for swanky soirees.
Wines Of India The California Wine Festival rolls into Orange County in the spring and Santa Barbara in the summer. Both stops include beach-close wine sipping.
Winery In India The Orange County party rolls on Saturday, April 20 and Santa Barbara happens on Saturday, July 20. There are Friday events paired with both events, but the Saturday soiree is the one you'll want to sundress-up for and apply the coconut lotion. It's major -- the name should convey that -- and dozens of wineries show up to grab some table space.

The audience at this year’s Drink Local Wine conference chuckled in agreement. Blue crabs and Natty Boh are iconic in the Old Line State, but few think of premium wines.
Wine From India Rob Deford and a handful of other vintners are trying to change that, working to raise the profile of the local wine industry — and increase wine’s popularity among consumers — by raising the quality of Maryland’s wines.
Wines Of India While the state had just 11 wineries in 2001, it’s now home to 62. And an increasing number of vintners are moving away from the fruit wines and non-European grape varieties that have long plagued the East Coast to produce wines that can compete on the world stage.

yesterday talking Green Wines….there are so many it was hard to get all the details out on air and really talk about all the great wines that are being made in a very green way these days. It is still a relatively new idea in the whole world of wine to focus on being Green, but we’ll also find many Old World wineries that have been farming their vines for generations organically. Though the process is better for Mother Earth and for you, the real reason a lot wineries have turned to a Green way of making wine is because producing a clean wine means you’ll produce a very vineyard driven wine, the key idea many winemakers gravitate toward these days. For us, it means delicious juice! A few selections were sent for editorial consideration, most selections can be found around town at our various wine stores like Goody-Goody or Spec’s, or directly through their websites.
Red Wine In India 2010 Clif Family Climber Bordeaux Blend – $28, Based in Napa from the family that brought us the Clif Bar. The winery was certified organic in 2009 and are currently moving towards being sustainable with processes in place like reducing carbon footprint by creating a green shipping program, they have a CSA (community supported agriculture) for their Napa neighbors, and steps in place that help both the wildlife and water preservation around their vineyards. This wine is a limited release blend of predominantly Merlot with Cabernet Sauvignon from 5 vineyards including their prestigious Howell Mountain Cab vineyard. The juice sees18 months in oak creating a wine very old world inspired wine with ripe red cherry, plum tart and licorice notes, great for pairing with grilled beef and Colorado lamb.
Wine From India 2010 Benziger Cabernet Sauvignon - $20, Based in Sonoma, 100% biodynamic and organic. The winery made a focused shift a handful of years ago to quality vs. quantity with very clean vineyard farming and production, mainly as Mike Benziger says because his family and children are working in their vineyards, as well as his workers. It benefits everyone to farm their property as clean as possible. An example of their biodynamic program includes their sheep scattered throughout the property who feed off of overgrown cover crop and naturally aerate and fertilize the soil. Without the sheep they would have to use machines and chemicals to do the same work, creating pollution. Result of all their efforts – fruit driven, balanced wines with expression and character.
