The Wine Life: What I Am Drinking Now…

THE WINE LIFE | What I am Drinking Now…Cedar Knoll | Dec 26, 2019 | By Stanley Browne | Original Article

Founded in 1881 by Henry Hagen, a young entrepreneur who headed west in the 1850s amid the Gold Rush, Cedar Knoll Vineyard and Winery quickly established itself as notable, serving wine to San Francisco’s finest and even winning a silver medal for Hagen’s brandy in 1889 at the World’s Fair in Paris. The winery, one of Napa’s first, occupied the southern end of Napa along Mount George, on some 450 acres of hillside.

2019 Harvest Report

2019 Harvest Report | By Christian Palmaz

As of Oct 25, 2019

Looking back on 2019, I believe we will remember this vintage as the year of worry.  Perhaps still in shock from the fires of 2017 and 2018, 2019 felt like it got off on the wrong foot.  With bud break already about 1 week later than 2018, we were encouraged by April’s warming trend and significant sun exposure.  Although the trend appeared to be transitioning smoothly into summer with soils drying out, May brought more than a week straight of significant soaking downpours, cold temperatures, and cloud cover.  Check out the interactive weather chart below.

Around the Fire: The Sunday Asado

Around the Fire: The Sunday Asado

By Florencia Palmaz | EXCERPT From At the Table & ARound the Fire | Jun 22, 2019

At home a Sunday is defined first by what’s being grilled, and second by what wine is being served. When we are all back in South America visiting friends and family, a Sunday afternoon can easily reach 25 people with first cousins, spouses and children alone. The afternoon begins with kids running amok outside, while a group of adults play cards or Buracco (a Latin American version of rummy cube) in front of the parrilla, keeping the Asador company. Another gaggle gathers like a conclave on the patio, having a drink, gossiping. Slowly the crowd begins to get hungry. A few bites of meat are passed to the crowd as teasers. Eventually everyone gathers at a long table, and the show begins. Wave after wave of delicious meats and salads arrive. The wine flows and the conversation rolls on with the sounds of deep belly laughter and a joyous roar from the table. Hearty applause is given to the Asador, and slowly the evening winds down.

This scene is the quintessential Argentine Sunday afternoon, from casual family affair to large celebratory parties. The formula has been created by generations before us perfecting the menu and the social norms to set a stage on which a barbecue is not just a meal — it’s an Asado.
