Here we are at the start of 2013, with dormant vines, the chill of winter days, and the discussion of what is in store for the year. With new Winemaker Jeremy Weintraub at the helm, we will be sharing his philosophy as he hears the "voice of the Adelaida vineyards."
We will also feature posts, musings, recipes, and vintage updates from production, wine club, national sales, and hospitality too.
Welcome to Adelaida-
Truth be told, I am a closet cheese-maker. With two years under my cheese-making belt and a degree in Food Science from Cal Poly, my cheese is still rough and inconsistent. This makes me appreciate even more the art of fine cheese and the complexities surrounding it.
Through my studies, I have come across many authors on the subject, but none have been more compelling about the complexities of cheese flavors than Laura Werlin. If you haven't read The Cheese Essentials or The All American Cheese and Wine Book, you are missing out on some incredible cheese insight.
The good news, we are bringing Laura Werlin, national author to Adelaida Cellars on
Sunday, November 10th. We will be featuring a Cheese and Wine Pairing University with Laura Werlin.
Laura is one of the country’s foremost authorities on cheese. She is a James Beard award-winning author of six books on the subject, is a sought-after speaker and spokesperson for consumer and trade organizations, and is a frequent television and radio guest. She is an expert in cheese and wine pairing and in particular American artisan cheese, Werlin received the prestigious James Beard award for her book The All American Cheese and Wine Book.
The seminar will include Laura’s lively discussion and then tasting of several cheeses paired to Adelaida wines. With the holiday season upon us, Laura will also add in tips on creating an incredible cheese plate for entertaining. We will have her books available for purchase and a book signing too.
Reservations are required for this event as seating is limited. Tickets are $50 per person and include event and wine tasting to follow.
To reserve your seat, please email email@example.com.
Hope to see you at the Cheese and Wine University!
The Summer Newsletter was created throughout the late spring and early summer months of 2013. With notes from the Winemaker Jeremy Weintraub, insights from Resident Wine Educator Tony Hermann, and from National Sales Manager, Paul Sowerby, a lively review of our cellar wines, it is a work that incorporates the many voices of Adelaida. Also included is a recipe pairing for Grilled Swordfish, a list of our most recent wines, notes on our new 2011 Pinot Vineyard Series, and a list of upcoming events.
The cover photo is of one of our newest additions, Liam the llama. He came to Adelaida in March with his big black coat, thick and matted, from the cold winter months. His face, warm and friendly, boasts dark eyes and lengthy lashes, giving him the appearance of a big flirt as he greets our guests. At the winery, Liam's job is to protect the sheep and he acts the part by being on constant watch. In times of trouble or simply to play, he is always quite the show with his long loose strides and lengthy neck gaining momentum as he removes the sheep from danger.
