Gambero Rosso Walkaround in NY
Cabernet based wines – Apparently the Italians haven’t read Decanter or even the lowly Wine Spectator; there are too many good wines from Bordeaux, and the Napa Valley vintners have the big and bold and expensive Cabernet category pretty well much wrapped up.

If Napa’s home, where to vacation?
Every year more than five million people visit the Napa Valley. Thats right, were getting away from the Napa Valley for a bit, exchanging our sunny, warm weather and vineyards for some cooler, much wetter Pacific Northwest air.

SIX NEW REGIONS JOIN FIGHT FOR PLACE NAMES
In the past couple of years, several different waves of litigation to protect place names have passed through the United States, lead by regions such as Napa Valley and Sonoma Valley. The first step in protecting place names in the US was taken in 2005 when the California Supreme Court ruled that Bronco Wine Co.’s (founder Fred Franzia) Napa Ridge brand was required to use grapes from the Napa Valley or stop using the word “Napa” in its label.

AW: No, we just manufacture in Napa Valley and we make it in 200-gallon kettles to control the quality, but we are working on selling the product nationwide and we have an export partner who is at the Japan FOODEX Show right now.
