More than three years after attempting to make the wines served at the White House a state secret, President Barack Obama has resumed the longstanding practice of publishing state dinner wine lists.
Indian Cabernet Shiraz The White House has become price-sensitive since being slammed by Republicans in 2011 for serving 2005 Quilceda Creek Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon to then-Chinese president Hu Jintao at a state dinner. Many right-wing commenters complained that the Quilceda Creek, which was awarded 100 points by Robert Parker and cost $115 on release, was being sold by some retailers for as much as $399. The average Wine-Searcher price today is $322 excluding sales tax.

Late Harvest Chenin Blanc (dessert Wine) India " The label on the wine says San Francisco Bay -- which is the wine-growing region -- the sub-appellation. Wine grapes are broken into appellations or wine regions, but it's Vallejo. It's an excellent wine, by the way; not a typical California Chardonnay." The grapes for this wine have been growing for about 17 years at 1 Meyer Place, near the convergence of Curtola Parkway, Solano Avenue and Sonoma Boulevard, on 2 1/2 acres of the Meyer Corporation's Vallejo campus, Eagle said.
