The renowned Sashi Moorman makes the wines for Stolpman Vineyards in Santa Barbara County's new Ballard Canyon appellation. Though Stolpman's Syrahs tend to get most of the attention, I'm more impressed with the Roussanne called L'Avion. The vineyard, farmed organically, the vineyard is actually planted on what was once the landing strip for planes in the '30s and '40s. Fermented in big French oak casks and aged on its lees for over a year, the 2010 L'Avion is rich and complex with scents of honey and jasmine. This is a gorgeous, subtle Roussanne, pale gold in color, with a beautiful mouth feel. Over the course of an evening, the flavors reveal themselves slowly.
Late Harvest Chenin Blanc (dessert Wine) India It's a perfect white to serve with lobster or Dungeness or Alaskan king crab, it's also a wine big enough to work with scallops or other seafood in a sauce. You'll want to save this bottle for a special meal or for someone who'd pay attention as the wine develops over the course of an hour or so.

Sauvignon Blanc India How does this translate to better wine? The move to organic, sustainable and biodynamic cultivation and winemaking produces higher-quality fruit and wines that better express the distinctiveness of the grape variety and its "terroir" — the specific plot where grapes are grown.

The Bordeaux region of France not only has some of the most famous wines in the world (St. Emilion, Margaux, Pauillac, Y'quem), but the region is packed with historic and wonderful chateaus, many of which have been turned into exclusive hotels. Fourteenth-century castles perch along the Dordogne River, fields of red poppies lie next to the vineyards and French chefs are busy preparing white asparagus in puff pastry, braised veal, tiny vegetables from their personal gardens, local chevres cheeses and walnut souffles.
Cabernet Shiraz India Cro Magnon artifacts can be found in the caves of some of the charming Bordeaux towns, and among the villages is Bergerac, home of Cyrano, where the grapes of Bergerac and Monbazillac wines are grown, as well as the best truffles in the world.
