The soul of Indian Soil Carefully Crafted into our Boutique wines
Ballard Canyon Road residents who opposed Michael Larner?s plan to develop a winery offering wine tasting and special events breathed a sigh of relief Monday, after a county official ruled that the project would require a longer, more in-depth and costly review before getting the green light.

Larner, owner with his family of 134 acres at 955 Ballard Canyon Road, applied with Santa Barbara Planning & Development to develop a winery and a tasting room and an option to host as much as 20 events each year, including concerts, weddings, an arts outreach fundraiser, a harvest party and a future tasting and a winemaker?s dinner.

?It?s sad for me to think that I?m being vilified in that people think I can?t conform like Rusack does,? he said.

From my last count they are 12 organisations importing wines for distribution in Jamaica. In the last few months a number of brands have been shuffled around. These market activities are not new; if you choose any major wine or spirit product, chances are the current distributor for that product might not have the organisation that introduced it to the market. Ultimately, I believe that you the consumer will benefit as importers will need to find new products to balance their portfolio and so you will have a lot more choices for your enjoyment.

While some might get concerned and sometimes bogged down with these activities, others get on with scouting the vast wine universe to look for new products the Jamaican consumer will enjoy. Over the next few weeks I will highlight a few new wines for you to try.

Sauvignon Blanc India

New on the market are two wines produced by the Cupcake Vineyards Brand. On shelves now are the 2009 Sauvignon Blanc and the 2009 Pinot Noir. Started in 2008 by multi-brand producer Underdog Wine & Spirits, who were looking to create a new product for upcoming wine drinkers who want to enjoy great wine without the sophistication. Australian winemaker Adam Richardson's inaugural release of three wines, a chardonnay, a cabernet sauvignon and a merlot, all from the central coast of California, was an immediate success. Cupcake Vineyards has expanded its portfolio to consist of wines from different countries. These included Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand, Malbec from Argentina, Prosecco from Italy, Riesling from Germany and Shiraz from his native Australia.

Winter is slowly creeping in to Washington, and as the thermometer begins its decent in to the chilly territory, the first thing that that most wine lovers think of is reaching for a big red wine. After all, big red wines are the perfect accompaniment for cold weather fare, such as stews and chili.

But what about white wines for weathering winter weather? Most consumers usually think of white wines as warm weather companions. However, there are many white wines on the market that can be enjoyed all year long. Like wool scarves and flannel sheets, big white wines can provide warmth and contentment. Pair them with comfort foods such as white bean chili or roasted chicken and you have a match akin to red wine and steak.

Rosé India

The essential characteristics that I look for in winter whites are relatively straight forward. It's really all about structure. I like white wines that carry a lot of weight and density in the mouth and fruit notes centered around pear, peach, roasted nuts and tropical fruits.

It can be a daunting task to find an affordable bottle of wine when you just want to have a glass with dinner and not break the bank. I refer to this particular type of bottle as an everyday wine, but the real problem is locating one that you don’t have to change with every vintage.

I recently tasted a sauvignon blanc at Magnum Wine & Tastings in Sarasota, Fla., and was quite surprised to learn that the vintage was 2011 until I was informed that the wine came from Terra Andina, which is in Chile.

Ignasi Lopez is a man with a mission -- and a rather simple oneat that. A native of Spain, Lopez set out on a mission to 'makewines that consumers wanted", and to sell them inexpensively. Theproblem was that many of the winemakers in Spain were making winesthat were over-oaked for the average American consumer, and thewinemakers saw no reason to change.

Chenin Blanc

Traditional Spanish winemakers grew up making and drinking theseoak-ladened wines just like their fathers and grandfathers hadtaught them, and many of the smaller wineries in Spain simplyweren't exporting their wine. Eight years ago Ignasi and hispartner Robert Hunter saw this potential market niche, formedVinergia, and set out to find growers and winemakers who would makewine that would appeal to American tastes.

In addition, the partners believed that the Spanish DO(Denominations of Origin) system of classifying and labeling wineswas confusing to Americans, so they labeled their wines with thegrape variety -- a custom more familiar to the United Statesconsumer.
