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.

Winemaking is intense. Not just on the people who work the land but on the land itself.
India Vineyard These days, many producers are still using fertilizers, pesticides, fungicides and carbon-based fuels during production. They use immense amounts of water and ferment their wines in plastic bins. Don't even get me started on the glass, corks, boxes, Styrofoam, and gas used to ship wines worldwide.
Red Wine In India In celebration of Earth Day, let's make a point to purchase and consume a wine that is not consuming our environment. From dry-farmed wines to those made using natural practices free of chemicals and additives, there are so many to choose. Here are five: 1. Lightweight bottle: 2012 Mud House Chardonnay (Marlborough, New Zealand) This peachy, unoaked chardonnay is among the first to be stored in a very light glass as part of the winery's commitment to sustainability. The glass is 10 percent lighter than the winery's previous bottle, which means a reduction of about half a ton of weight per container of wine exported. $12.
