Eric Miller has been a winemaker at Chadds Ford Winery for the past 29 years, and he’s never seen a better crop than this year.
White Wine In India Just about every winery across the region is reporting a bumper wine crop this year, due largely to the hot, dry temperatures, cool nights and the perfect amount of rainfall.
Wine Testing Tour “Everything just fell into place,” said Miller, whose winery produces about 25,000 cases of wine annually. “This is my 40th vintage, and I’ve had two 10s in that time. This year is one of them.” At the 30-acre Paradocx Vineyard in Landenberg, winemaker Dave Hoffman said the warm early spring and the warm weather through October fueled the best crop he’s ever seen.

The Oregonian - OregonLive.com Special to The Oregonian Four critics choose the best bottles to go with distinctive holiday flavors.
White Wine India From Thanksgiving to New Year's Day, the holiday season offers many opportunities for gathering around the table for celebrations with family and friends. Often, dishes with robust flavors are at the heart of those feasts, and finding the right wine can be tricky. For instance, conventional wisdom has it that a light-bodied pinot noir is a perfect match for roast turkey with all the trimmings. But less-traditional pairings like riesling and viognier are surprisingly good fits.
White Wine In India So we asked our panel of experts to come up with their ideal bottles to go with three kinds of classic holiday fare -- roast turkey, crown roast of pork and prime rib. Our panel is Katherine Cole, wine columnist for FOODday and MIX magazine; Darryl Joannides, owner of Cork -- A Bottle Shop and a former member of the MIX magazine wine panel; and Kyle O'Brien, a freelance wine writer. And because not everyone eats meat, we asked Grant Butler, who writes FOODday's Going Vegan column and is a member of the MIX wine panel, to choose wines that will go well with the vegetable side dishes that turn up on holiday menus.

Fetzer Vineyards vineyard and wild land in Mendocino County could make the chemical element a huge resource for the wine industry under California’s evolving greenhouse-gas emissions accounting system.
Indian Late Harvest Chenin Blanc (dessert Wine) Owners of vineyard property should get carbon-capturing credit for leaving parts of the property undeveloped for soil-friendly viticultural techniques such as composting, mulching and cover cropping, according to U.C. Davis researcher Louise Jackson , Ph.D.
White Wine India Her research team studied five Fetzer ranches with 1,322 acres in 30 vineyards and more than 100 blocks as well as surrounding undeveloped woodlands. The property is conservatively estimated to sequester 133 tons of carbon per acre, or 135,337 tons in tree and vine wood above ground and in up to three feet of dirt, per the Kyoto Protocols . Root volume was excluded because of the high difficulty in developing a statistical model of volume and density, Dr. Jackson said.

Darms Lane vineyard manager Tricia Bump Davis holding a bottle of the wine her family is selling to help raise money to fight the ovarian cancer that took her mother in 2007. For each bottle of Darms Lane 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Linda's Hillside Vineyard sold, $25 will go to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund.
Indian Chenin Blanc A limited-production wine is almost always a personal endeavor, but for the Bump family their recently released Darms Lane Linda's Hillside Vineyard cabernet sauvignon is truly a labor of love.
Indian Late Harvest Chenin Blanc (dessert Wine) The wine is named in honor of Darms Lane vineyard co-owner Linda Bump, who died of ovarian cancer in 2007, and one-third of the bottle's recommended selling price of $75 is slated for the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund.
