Most Sonoma wine country daytrippers drive right through the intersection of Highway 116 and 121, heading for Carneros or Sonoma Valley. But there's a reason to stop and pull off the road: Anaba Winery. You'll likely spot a lone, tall windmill as you enter the little bungalow between the palm trees-- and a barrel head embellished with windmill blades as you enter the tasting room.
The Wine Society Of India Inside, the cozy room is outfitted with a tasting bar and fireplace. But if it's a sunny day -- and it usually is -- take that tasting outdoors to the porch overlooking the vineyards and ponder this: Anaba is the first wind-powered winery in Northern California. Its 45-foot wind turbine harnesses the winds flowing in from the Petaluma Gap and powers the tasting room, office, wine storage and irrigation pumps for the two estate vineyards. The winery's name is a nod to the swirling, upward-flowing breezes known as anabatic winds.

Those breezes will top it up, as you sip your way through the tasting menu ($10 for five dry wines and one sweet wine), which includes some cleverly named Aero Ports. Just tap into the newly installed electric car-charging station for a free wind charge, courtesy of the mighty Anaba wind turbine.

Wineries In India Winemakers from Priorat in the hills south of Barcelona have drawn inspiration from Oregon and other New World regions to create some of Spain’s most expensive wines, fetching around $100 a bottle and finding a market in the U.S.
The Wine Society Of India Techniques range from gravity-fed wineries that let the wine stream without the use of pumps to delicate grape-handling procedures honed by pinot noir growers in Oregon’s Willamette Valley and applied to old-vine grenache and carignan grapes in some of Spain’s steepest vineyards.

Albarino, tempranillo, graciano and verdelho are grapes most often associated with Spanish and Portuguese wines. In California, these varieties have found a comfortable niche in Lodi. It makes sense. Lodi has a climate that's similar to much of southern Europe, with warm days, cool nights and a dry summer.
Winery In India "The grapes are just a natural fit," says Ron Silva, a leading grower of Iberian grape varieties in Lodi. "I don't know why we're growing cabernet when we should be growing tempranillo." Iberian varieties still account for only a small percentage of Lodi's acreage, and there are parts of the state where several of these varieties are more common. San Luis Obispo County, for example, has the most albarino and tempranillo in the state. Other varieties, such as graciano, are so rare in California that the annual state acreage report doesn't even list them.
