In the world of wine, certain regions are widely renowned as elite places to grow a specific varietal -- cabernet sauvignon in Napa Valley, malbec in Mendoza, Argentina and pinot noir in Willamette Valley, Ore., to name a few. At a recent wine tasting, I met Dr. Madaiah Revana, who has had the vision to start a winery in each of these three regions.

This passion led him to purchase land in the St. Helena appellation that was suitable for growing Bordeaux varietals. With the addition of Jim Barbour and Heidi Peterson Barrett to the Revana family, the doctor accomplished his main priority at the start by bringing aboard a top vineyard manager and top winemakers from the region to establish his winery.

The biblical claim, made in Psalms 104:15, was that winewas a gift of God “to gladden the heart of man.” Still, twomillennia went by before truly good wine came out of Israel.When the 4th edition of The Sotheby’s Wine Encyclopedia appearedin 2005, Israeli wines got only one skimpy paragraph.

By Marc Liberts Instead of asking what I could bring to Thanksgiving dinner this year, I informed my wonderful hostess, Judith that I'd be bringing wine. I asked the attendees what kind of wine they liked, and then proceeded to pick out all my favorites. My thought was to introduce all the guests to the best of Santa Barbara County wines. So, I hosted a mini-wine tasting before Thanksgiving dinner. I think it went well, because it helped the hostess get everyone into the proper frame of mind, and it gave the hostess and her helpers time and space to do their work. Also, I set up the tasting at the edge of the kitchen, so the hostess and her helpers were able to taste along and still do what needed to be done.
The Wine Society Of India Here are the wines I brought, and my impressions of them. All the wines were tasted non-blind. The whites were properly chilled. The one problem was the fact that the reds were opened and consumed immediately. Most reds are more pleasant when opened 2-8 hours before they are served. If not, decanting can also help them get the air they need to loosen up.
Wines From India When doing a wine tasting, always try and start with the lightest wine, and end with the heaviest. Generally, you want to taste oaked white wines after ones that are done in stainless steel, because the oak flavors can overwhelm the flavors of stainless steel white wines. If you aren't sure, ask your wine merchant, someone who knows, or email me for suggestions.
