California’s Next Generation Lead Women Winemakers and the Promise that Accompanies their Success

September 18, 2020

“Katy Wilson, LaRue Wines, Sebastopol, Sonoma County. Katy Wilson made up her mind to become a winemaker when she was 18. At the time, she was studying Agricultural Business at California Polytechnic University, San Luis Obispo. Having grown up on a California walnut orchard, Katy learned to drive a tractor before she learned to drive a car. She graduated from Cal Poly in 2005 with majors in both Wine & Viticulture and Agricultural Business and started her journey in the wine industry with harvest internships in different regions of California and in Australia and New Zealand."

These Wines Are The Perfect Pairing For Hearty Fall Meals

September 10, 2020

There’s red wine and then there’s RED WINE. While we all love to sip red year-round, there are certain reds that instantly make us want to light a fire, thrown on a vintage jazz album, and curl up with a big bowl of something hot and delicious. These are the reds we want to pair with those hearty braised dishes, stewed meats, game, hard cheeses, and 1000-calorie-per-serving casseroles. 

Viader “Black Label,” Napa Valley, CA, $150: Go ahead. Treat yourself. You deserve it. And we promise this wine will not disappoint. A heady blend of estate-grown Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Cabernet Franc and Malbec, it’s got concentrated blue and black fruit, sweet and savory spices like nutmeg, black pepper, and anise, and a masculine saddle leather note that ultimately leads to a velvety finish…when you finally get there, that is — those flavors go on for days.” 

As The Going Gets Tough In The Wine World, Delia Viader Continues To Move Mountains

August 31, 2020

"When Delia Viader first visited Napa Valley in the early 1980s, no one could have predicted that the 25-year-old single mother of four would one day be considered a pioneer and driving force in the United States’ most high-profile wine region. After borrowing money from her father to purchase a steep, rocky plot of land on Howell Mountain, Viader set about transforming it into a vineyard with unconventional vine spacing, row orientation, and grape varieties. Removing some of the larger boulders required her to set off a few sticks of dynamite, which is unsurprising once gets to know a little bit about Viader’s drive and determination."

The Dozen - Thinking of California

August 21, 2020

"Sometimes we can’t do much about a pending catastrophe except to think good thoughts and try to find a way to help. In the case of California wine regions which are being devastated this week by wild fires, you might crystallize those thoughts by considering choosing some of their wines, such as those in this week’s Dozen, in your next round of purchases. -- 2017 Viader Napa Valley Black Label Red Wine ($150). Excellent concentrated flavors of cassis and dark cherry with a touch of burnished vanilla in the finish. This wine improves with time in the decanter and will age for decades in the cellar."
