It's a good indication of the hospitality to come when you reach the top of the hill.The Rombauers are

gracious folks, as indicated by hundreds of photos of happy visitors sampling wines in the casual room since 1982. Many notables have visited but tasting room staff, Jim, John, Marie, Nancy and Holly treat everyone like royalty, no questions asked. It's that kind of place. Chances are the family dog will be milling about. A pint-sized, third-generation Rombauer may dart in and out, hitch a ride on a forklift or pick a rose from the lush garden begun with the magic touch of the Ferragamo Snake Patent Leather Ballerina Flats lovely, late Joan Rombauer, reminding one of the family's staying power.That's what the wine business is all about - quality of product and staying power - and Rombauer has proven to the world their wines are worth a taste. Still family-owned and operated by Dad, Koerner Rombauer, who oversees the day-to-day; daughter, Sheana, special events and marketing; and son, Koerner Rombauer III (K.R.), Director of National Sales, the dedication of the family spills over to the entire team and shows in every bottle. Hands-on Winemaker, Greg Graham, joined the team in 1988 and plans to stick around. He fits right in.Particularly known for Carneros Chardonnay and Estate Grown Zinfandel, Rombauer also successfully produces the varietals Diamond Selection Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley Merlot and a meritage blend, Le Meilleur du Chai translated as "the best of the cellar." The very limited production of the popular Joan's Vineyard Zinfandel is sold exclusively at the winery. Full-bodied and bursting with raspberry and pepper, this is a wine to remember. At Rombauer, tasting is complimentary seven days from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The tasting room staff is happy to talk wine and food and share the story of The Joy of Cooking, the internationally recognized cookbook written by Koerner's great-aunt, Irma Rombauer. Continuously revised and updated for changing lifestyles, the book, like the family, celebrates the relationship between friends, food and wine. Even the wine club, "The Joy of Wine," tags the concept.Located at 3522 Silverado Trail in St. Helena, visit Rombauer for great wine, the welcoming reception, and for the flourishing grounds strewn with gravel paths through cool woods that lead to romantic picnic tables offering the best in valley views. Tours are available by appointment and events are planned with that same gracious hospitality you'll find in the tasting room. Call the winery at 1-800-622-2206 or check for additional information.

      Poll: What's the First Thing You Look for on a Nutrition Label? When you're trying to eat healthier or lose weight, reading nutrition labels is a must. With all the numbers, percentages and details, what's really the most important?A recent report shared the top five nutrients consumers look for when they study nutrition labels: total calories, total fat, calories from fat, sugars and sodium. The report also lists which five nutrients consumers are trying to avoid (such as trans fats) and the ones they're interested in eating more of (such as whole grains).This led me to wonder: What nutrients do you look at first when studying a nutrition facts label? I do read nutrition labels, but not all the time, to be honest. Mostly, I look at the ingredients lists to see exactly what is in the product and in what order (since labels must list ingredients in descending order based on weight). This way, I can tell right away if sugar, fat, trans fats (hydrogenated oils), refined grains and other things I don't want in my food are there before I even look at the numbers. For me, ingredients are more important than the numbers on the label, but I will skim those, too.While I do not pay attention to calories (I'm not trying to lose weight), I do look at protein (as a vegetarian, I’m always trying to maximize it), fiber, total fat, sodium, and sugars on the label. Although I don't count calories, if two foods I'm comparing have a similar breakdown of these other nutrients, I will often pick the lower calorie option.I also look at serving size so I have an idea of how much I'd need to eat to reach the particular numbers listed and whether that's worthwhile—and realistic. If a serving of cereal is listed as 3/4 cup, I know

      I'll have to at least double the nutrients listed since that is too small of a serving for me.Although I read nutrition labels when considering new foods to buy, I almost never go back and read the labels of the foods I buy regularly and Sale Air Jordans Future Infrared 23 Black Red Shoes On 1TOPJORDAN eat often. However, I've learned the hard way that a food manufacturer can change the ingredients list (and therefore the nutrition profile of the food) without ever changing the look of their packaging. So it's a good idea to double check the labels of your favorite foods every so often to be aware of any changes that do take place. Get tips on how to read a nutrition facts label.How about you? What's the first thing you look for when reading a nutrition facts label? Is it because you want to maximize that nutrient or minimize it?

        Sebastiani 2003 Port With Torta Di Ricotta E Cioccolata | Wine Country This Week Magazine Wineries, Wine Tasting, Wine Tasting Maps Fri, 09/12/2008Thu, 09/18/2008Sebastiani 2003 Port with Torta di Ricotta e CioccolataRecently, when the Italian Ambassador to the United States, Giovanni Castellaneta and his wife, Lila, were touring the famous grape-growing region around the colorful City of Sonoma, his friend and guide Chef Carlo Cavallo mentioned they would be dining at the home of Mary Ann Sebastiani Cuneo and Dick Cuneo, owners of the historic Sebastiani Winery.  What he didn't reveal was that the menu included a special dessert Chef Carlo had often prepared for the Ambassador's boss, Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi when he cooked for him in Milan several years ago. This choice was a great tribute to the Ambassador and was much appreciated by all those enjoying the luncheon.   A gentle hand and great patience are imperative in creating the delicate layers of the Torta di Ricotta e Cioccolata, starting with the Pasta Frolla (soft dough) base to the blending of the ricotta and chopped bittersweet Ferragamo Tropical Printed Silk Oblong Scarf Pink chocolate.  And the final touch, for the very pleasurable repast, says Chef Carlo, was selecting the wine to further enhance the elegant dessert. Since the setting for the lunch was the Cuneo home, with its extraordinary cellar of excellent Sebastiani wines there were a great many possible choices but Chef Carlo quickly identified the Sebastiani 2003 Adagio Amador Port as displaying a ripe raspberry fruit flavor that lingers and complements the chocolate and ricotta.  The Ambassador added his words of praise with a broad smile and the pronouncement that it had been "Un Pranzo Magnifico," an excellent lunch."       Visit Sebastiani Vineyards at 389 Fourth Street East in Sonoma, open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, call (707) 938-5532 or go to the website at . Torta di Ricotta e Cioccolata   Pasta Frolla 6 ounces of butter, melted 1 1/2 cup of flour 6 ounces of sugar 3 egg yolks Lemon zest Preheat a 350 degree oven Using a mixer with dough hook attachment, combine all the above ingredients and form a dough ball. Ricotta filling1 pound of ricotta cheese 3 eggs separated and whites beaten stiff 1 teaspoon of vanilla 8 ounces of sugar 4 ounces of bitter chocolate chopped fine into small pieces  In a bowl beat the sugar and the egg yolks together, mix in vanilla, ricotta and chocolate.

Vivacious and passionate, the 4 Ingredients team is run by busy moms who are committed to making healthy cooking easy and fun for the whole family.

Then add some of these...Apple slices: Served with peanut, cashew, or almond butter or then sprinkled with coconut or raisins. Or add thinly sliced orange and lemon slices with honey to the top.Cheese cubes: With sliced turkey and grapes--for a lunchbox cheese board!Crackers: Variety is the spice of life, so buy different crackers each week. Choose whole-grain crackers, of course.Cottage cheese: Top crackers with cottage cheese, chopped toasted walnuts or raisins.Fruit Salad: Is the ideal lunch box solution; it’s colorful, easy to eat and bursting with vitamins. Our faves are strawberries, grapes, apple and oranges (the juice of the orange prevents the apple from discoloring too)!Leftovers: The trick is to think ahead and make a little extra at dinner for lunch the next day.

            Unique Wine Experiences At Elizabeth Spencer | Wine Country This Week Magazine Wineries, Wine Tasting, Wine Tasting Maps
            Fri, 01/23/2009Unique Wine Experiences at Elizabeth SpencerCharles NeaveThe tasting room of Elizabeth Spencer Wines is in a little, historic (c. 1872) jewel box of a building. The original town post office, it is situated in the small but celebrated hamlet of Rutherford, about midway between Yountville and St. Helena, surrounded by some of the most renowned grape-growing soil anywhere on earth Partners in business and in life, Elizabeth Pressler and Spencer Nike Zoom Hyperdunk Graham are the creators of their somewhat eponymous winery. Just as their names have combined to create the Elizabeth Spencer imprint, so have their lifelong passion for food and wine been a guiding force. Together they have worked with some of the finest wineries and winemakers, chefs and restaurants in the country. As a chef Spencer understood the dynamics of food and wine; as a marketing expert Elizabeth understands the dynamics of presenting wine to the public. "Partnering with Spencer to make our own wines seemed such a natural evolution." When they considered what wines to offer, they wisely kept the core list small and limited to wines they truly loved. So to that end, they offer six varietals. There is an organic Sauvignon Blanc, a Chardonnay crafted from fruit from cool-climate California vineyards that has a flavor profile that includes notes of lemon, minerality and minimal oak. Then there is a fruity Grenache, a seductive and earthy Pinot Noir with flavors of both dark and red fruits and at times that wonderful and elusive orange peel quality. They also have a Syrah that is an intense blue-black color, and to round out their well considered list, a Cabernet Sauvignon that is ripe - but not overly ripe - rich, fruity and full. Sometimes Malbec, Cabernet France and a Roussane (among others) - wines made in made in very www.saletopshoe.com small lots and available only at their tasting room - might appear. In all they work with a select group of growers and source their fruit from a dozen prime vineyard blocks in Northern California. Their philosophy as it pertains to winemaking is admirably straightforward: "Wine should be delicious and representative of its appellation of origin. We make wines to drink. Inviting wines that we and our friends - and by extension, our customers - truly enjoy. And the model for all of our wines is intensity without weight, purity, persistence and length. "We carefully monitor the annual growing cycle and fruit development through to harvest.  Our wines are made to be accessible in youth, display ample fruit and be well-balanced from the first impression through to the finish." Winemaker (and California native) Matthew Rorick's winemaking philosophy is just as direct. It is to strive for the purest expression of the relationship between site and vine. He feels Elizabeth Spencer offers a unique opportunity to address that challenge, with its commitment to searching a wide range of sources for the most vibrant, complex, and exciting fruit available. In the winery, he believes in an approach that he calls "meticulous minimalism," in order to allow the fruit to showcase its true character.   One of the most enjoyable and educational programs they offer explores this philosophy. It is the hour-long Appellation Tasting, an intimate, sit-down tasting featuring four Elizabeth Spencer Cabernet Sauvignons produced from four different Napa Valley appellations plus a "mystery wine." They are paired with hand-selected artisan cheeses. When you take part you will taste and explore the individual characteristics of each wine and how the climates, soils and conditions found in the growing region are expressed. You will also learn about artisan cheeses and how and why they pair with the selected wines. There is also the octagonal, tented and heated space next to the tasting room, which people have described as like an exotic private lounge, with it's own small tasting bar, a basket of lap blankets, comfortable seating and much, much more. It is a magical space and when the weather cooperates, six of the eight sides can be opened. Used for private events and certain tastings, it is an oasis flanked by a wall of vines and more. Surrounding it are small tables where anyone tasting can sit and relax. It is, in fact, a hidden garden with, one with excellent wines. But no matter how you to choose to do your tasting, make sure to take the time for a memorable visit at this intimate and beautiful spot in the middle of the Napa Valley. You will walk away all the better for it, that I can promise. The Elizabeth Spencer tasting room is located at 1165 Rutherford Road (Highway 128) in Rutherford across from the Rutherford Grill. It is open 365 days a year from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. for tastings and for retail sales and no appointment is necessary. Private Tastings, Wine and Cheese Pairings and the Appellation Tasting can be arranged by prior arrangement. They can be reached by phone at (707) 963-6067 or look on their website at .
