By DOUG ERNST / Napa Valley Correspondent Historic buildings and places are preserved so that future generations can visit them, learn from them and appreciate their heritage.

A Good Read: ‘The Wines of Burgundy’ by Clive Coates Coates has made a life and a living off of the lands of Burgundy while never making wine. His “Côte D’Or: A Celebration of the Great Wines of Burgundy” canonized the vineyards. This book, published in 2008, provides a broader overview of the region. A must-have for those who are fascinated by the wines and the vineyards of Burgundy.
White Wine In India Now, all five of these winemakers have dabbled in the production of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, but their primary wines range from Port to Cabernet. And yet, when asked, they all answered with the same response. Why are the wines from Burgundy considered by those who make wines to be the finest in the world? Well, if you have ever tasted a Grand Cru Burgundy, I’m sure that you will have some clue based on your own experiences. The nuances of a great Pinot Noir can be revelatory, and the silkiness of a Chardonnay from the region can change how one thinks about wine. Not just a wine from Burgundy itself, but any wine. There are more people in the wine world who have their world rocked by wines from the Grand Cru vineyards of Burgundy then those from just about anywhere else. Yes, including Champagne and Bordeaux.
Wine Testing Tour When these five winemakers answered my question with the word “Burgundy” they are generally speaking of very specific selections of wines from a tiny section of a much larger region that produces many styles of wines. They are specifically referring to the amazing wines of the Grand Cru vineyards, the most valuable and sought-after vineyard land on Earth. In the classification system of Burgundy, a tiny percentage of wines qualify as Grand Cru. These are wines that originate in the 1,400 or so acres that have been officially designated as the very best, the creme de la creme, of Burgundy. They total less than 2 percent of all the vineyards in Burgundy and account for less than 1.5 percent of the region’s total production.

Covenant Wines has been raising the reputation of kosher wines since its first vintage in 2003. Napa Valley based winemaker Jeff Morgan set a challenge for himself: to make the best kosher wine in 5,000 years, and make them from Napa Valley grapes. Thus Covenant Wines was born.
White Wine India Morgan began with 3,000 barrels for his first vintage; now he’s up to 5,000 barrels and 13 wines, including his flagship Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Many prominent critics, including Robert Parker and Jancis Robinson, have called Covenant one of the best kosher wines in the world. Morgan consistently receives scores in the 90s from Wine Advocate and Wine Spectator . He has certainly made good on his challenge.
White Wine In India There are only about half a dozen kosher fine wine producers in the United States. So it’s a big deal that Covenant will be packing up and leaving Napa Valley and setting up shop in Berkeley. The winery’s new home will be at 1102 Sixth St. in Berkeley and Morgan says he thinks Covenant will be the first kosher winery in the United States to be in an urban setting since before Prohibition, let alone in Berkeley.
