The soul of Indian Soil Carefully Crafted into our Boutique wines
Here’s a dirty secret about the seemingly rootsy and artisan life of a winemaker: Aside from jamming around the clock during harvest, many spend the rest of the year on the road, hitting markets across the state, country, and world to peddle their bottles in a cutthroat market that’s ever-demanding of their time and increasingly competitive with a steady stream of new brands both big and small. The grind got so wearing for veteran vintner Lane Tanner — who started at Firestone Vineyard in 1980 and then made Zaca Mesa and Hitching Post wines before starting her eponymous brand in 1989 — that she retired her historic pinot noir brand in 2009. “I wasn’t having fun anymore,” she explained.

Thankfully for those of us who enjoy Tanner’s clean and bright style of pinot and chardonnay, the good times have returned, all thanks to her new business partner, Will Henry, whose father founded the Henry Wine Group, today one of the largest distributors in California. With his sales and marketing acumen — “I have a really good background on how to do things right,” said Henry, “and how not to do things wrong” — Tanner can focus solely on the winemaking of their brand, Lumen Wines, whose inaugural 2012 vintage is by-the-glass at many restaurants in Santa Barbara, including Sama Sama, Petit Valentien, and San Ysidro Ranch.

Lumen’s pinot and chard are from Sierra Madre Vineyard, where Tanner started working on a low-key project for the property’s owner, Doug Circle, in 2012, after her two years of retirement. But then Circle decided against founding his brand, so, as Tanner explained, “I had this beautiful wine with no home.” Henry serendipitously came knocking. “I was wanting to do a certain style of wine, and I’ve really been turned on by the low-alcohol movement, which is really more of a low-sugar-at-harvest movement,” he explained. “She’s always made wines along those lines and never changed to appease the critics.” After failed attempts to hire her as simply winemaker, he offered her a partnership, and she agreed.

Last year I recommended the 2010 vintage of this wine, but the 2011 is even better. It offers bright sour-cherry fruit that rings as clear as a tuning fork on the palate, with just enough stony minerality to give it structure. It’s a delightful expression of this little-known grape. Alcohol by volume: 13 percent.

What? They manufacture wine in Eddystone? That truthfully was my surprised, initial reaction when I found out the Penns Woods Winery plant was the next business on the schedule to tour through the Delaware County Chamber of Commerce’s Manufacturing Series this year. The Chamber has been hosting a series of behind-the-scene tours of local manufacturing companies in Delaware County and Penns Woods Winery was next up, this tour sponsored by TD Bank.

I knew Penns Woods Vineyard is out in Chadds Ford, but I had incorrectly assumed everything, from grape to bottled product, took place at that location. Last Wednesday, I learned instead that on a quiet little street in Eddystone, Penns Woods Winery is a thriving operation. The wine smell is so fresh and aromatic ,I could smell it as I stood at their front door.

To make a long story short, Gino Razzi grew up in a vineyard in Abruzzo, Italy. After he moved to Pennsylvania as a young man in 1962, he settled in Delaware County and began a successful wine import business here. Wines Unlimited still thrives on Saville Avenue in Eddystone. Impressed with the quality of fruit in Pennsylvania, Razzi purchased the 30-acre vineyard in western Delaware County to begin growing grapes to produce his own wines. Needing a location to implement the steps between grape harvest and final bottles of wine, Razzi purchased four properties across the street from his Eddystone import business to create the winery. Today, the Penns Woods Winery produces a variety of award-winning wines from Pennsylvania-grown grapes.

BEIRUT — As the U.S. was bombing Islamic State militants in Syria last week, eight wine experts were invited to the Ledbury, a two Michelin-star restaurant in West London, to sample the latest vintage from the Syrian winery Domaine de Bargylus.

For these red and white wines, it was the culmination of a remarkable journey that began in soil that was once a cradle of winemaking but now is the site of a bloody civil war that has killed more than 200,000 people in the past three years.

Domaine de Bargylus, founded in 2004 by Lebanese-Syrian brothers Karim and Sandro Saadé, has not allowed the country's civil conflict stop production, at least for the time being.

California Drought Produces Tastier Wine Grapes

That sentiment is echoed all over the two counties, which produce most of America's high-end wines. Part of the reason: Reduced water forces the grapevines to produce smaller berries, which results in sugar and flavors being more concentrated, said ...
