I recently enjoyed a very good, well-priced wine perfect for summer. Chateau St. Jean of Sonoma County, California is located at the foot of Sugarloaf Ridge in the Sonoma Valley near Kenwood. Founded in 1973, Chateau St. Jean has long been recognized as a leader in Vineyard Designated wines. Winemaker Margo Van Staaveren uses her 35 years of vineyard and winemaking expertise with Chateau St. Jean to highlight the best of each vineyard in the wines.
White Wine India wines from each special vineyard are bottled and marketed separately with the vineyard name on the label. Chateau St. Jean offers vineyard-designated Chardonnays from the acclaimed Robert Young, Belle Terre and Durell Vineyards as well as a Pinot Noir from Durell Vineyard and Fumé Blanc from the La Petite étoile ("The Little Star") Vineyard and Lyon Vineyard.

White Wine In India Chateau St Jean Chardonnay Cold Creek Sonoma Coast 2012 $18.99 The Vintner says: Cold Creek Ranch Chardonnay is known for its bright, tropical fruit aromas of pineapple and citrus. The wine also has subtle floral notes that add complexity. The core of minerality on the palate gives structure to the luscious lemon meringue pie, white peach and nectarine flavors on the full, rich palate. Lively acidity balances the richness through to a mouth filling, lingering finish.

This is another installment of a series called "Livermore Stories," which takes a look at the most exciting wineries in this wine growing region located east of San Francisco. More than 50 wineries now call Livermore Valley home. The wines have never been better, and the wineries have great stories to tell.
Indian Late Harvest Chenin Blanc (dessert Wine) It's barrel tasting weekend at the end of March in Livermore Valley, and only the third time that Caddis Wines has been open to the public.
White Wine India "We're in our pop up tasting room," says Chris Sorensen, winemaker and co-owner. "We're the new guys in town," adds his co-owner Courtney Garcia. "We've been making wine since 2010, all Livermore fruit except our Zinfandel." That fruit comes from her parent's vineyard in Sonoma Valley.
White Wine In India
One of the historical wine regions of Mexico happens to be just a quick two-hour drive from San Diego in the Valle de Guadalupe in Baja California. This area was where a migration of wine makers took place in the 16th century and has evolved into an unnoticed and unappreciated wine making area.
Indian Chenin Blanc This region is producing some really good wines now, but I wouldn't go as far as the Wall Street Journal calling Valle de Guadalupe the next Napa. That's going way too far. There are about 50 wineries there today that produce about 90 percent of all Mexican wines. But, then again Mexico is known for Tequila, Mescal and Cerveza.
Indian Late Harvest Chenin Blanc (dessert Wine) The wines are worth the try and one great way is at the fabulous harvest festival that wraps up Aug. 17 that has been held now for 24 years. This particular harvest festival uses the Latin term of Vendimia.

Dan’s Harvest East End on August 23, when The Old Field Vineyards and more than 35 other Long Island wineries will be pouring selections for guests to taste alongside food by East End top chefs and purveyors during a night celebrating the area’s fine wines and culinary culture.
Indian Sauvignon Blanc What drew you to work in the Long Island Wine industry? The determination to save the family farm, purchased in 1918, for the sixth generation, and getting into an industry my husband Chris was much intrigued by—so much so that he was willing to take the risk and be the second planter out here  using Hargrave vines on a small plot.
Indian Chenin Blanc What is the best thing you’ve ever heard anyone say about your wines? On a cold Friday morning in February, David Schildeknacht sat at our kitchen table tasting our wine and declared our Blanc de Noir was “world class.” What a thrill.

In our opinion, Sauvignon Blanc is one of a few varietals with universal appeal. Not only is it made in a number of styles in countries around the world, it’s almost always offered by the glass on wine lists and we’re yet to ever hear anyone say they don’t like it. In fact, it’s one of the only varietals that we’ve found is identifiable by people who know very little about wine.
Indian Rosé Our hypothesis for this is availability, familiarity, and accessibility. Because it’s typically available in wine shops and on wine lists, consumers are familiar with it. And because it tends not to be too heavy, funky-nuanced, or expensive, it’s accessible to the palates and wallets of most.
Indian Sauvignon Blanc We very much enjoy Sauvignon Blanc ourselves and are always on the lookout for different styles and producers to recommend to our readers and friends. So when we were recently served a glass of the 2013 JUSTIN Sauvignon Blanc as an aperitif at a dinner party, we were happy to discover another lovely producer to add to our repertoire.
