    Quotation of the Month

    Wine is bottled poetry

    Robert Louis Stevenson

    Zodiac of the Month-Cancer



    June, 22 - July, 22



    I feel



    Deeply intuitive and sentimental, Cancer can be one of the most challenging Zodiac signs to get to know. Emotion runs strong for this sign, and when it comes to family and home, nothing is more important. Sympathetic and empathetic, Cancerians are greatly attuned to those around them.

    Devotion is the keyword for this sign, making them wonderfully sensitive people to be around.


    When it comes to wine, Cancerians are magically attracted to high quality. They prefer to build up little wine stocks to remember the "good old times".

    In general, they know more about wine, than others expect them to. This background knowledge is also caused by natural scepticism.

    We have received the following letter from Sequoia Grove!


    Dear Valued Customer,


    We are pleased to introduce an elegant new package for Sequoia Grove, a look that better reflects the quality inside the bottle and our home in the Rutherford appellation of the Napa Valley. We have spent the past several years strengthening our relationships with Napa Valley’s most renovated growers and enhancing our own top-quality estate fruit through our recent acquisition of the Tonella Vineyard in Rutherford.


    As you known we’ve never followed the pack with our Chardonnay. It is full-bodied, crisp, clean and Burgundian-like in style with great varietal expression. Our Chardonnnay grapes come from Dijon and Wente clones grown in the renowned Carneros District in Napa Valley. With the 2009 vintage, we are pleased to introduce a few new grewer acquisitions, which, along with the Beckstoffer Vineyard. Haire Vineyard, and Ghisletta Vineyard create a fresh expression of Carneros Chardonnay.


    Thank you for your continued support.

    Michael Trujillo

    President and Director of Winemaking

    Red Capsicum carpaccio & Cava Yate Rose

    Red capsicum carpaccio  

    Red capsicum:3
    Juice from the pickled shallots: 75cc
    Extra virgin olive oil: 25cc
    Myoga ginger: 2

    Cut the red capsicum in half and grill until the skin is brown. Peel the skin and cut again in half lengthwise.

    Mix the olive oil (25cc) and the juice from the pickled shallots (75cc) and marinate the red capsicum for a day. Cut the red capsicum sideways in bite-sized pieces and place it on a plate. Put the finely cut myoga ginger on top of the capsicum and sprinkle black pepper and a bit of salt according to your taste.

    The juice from the pickled shallots is too good to be wasted. So I sometimes eat carrots marinated in this juice. It is very convenient as if you marinate it in the morning it is already perfect in the evening. Actually, I do not pickle the shallots myself but ask my father to give me some of his pickles every year. Make sure you try this red capsicum carpaccio before throwing away the juice when you buy pickled shallots not too sweet.  

    I matched the Cava Yate Rose for the red capsicum carpaccio. As the marinade juice flavor is not too strong, you can still enjoy the original red capsicum taste even after it is marinated for one night. Capsicum alone will be very mild but by adding myoga ginger, the carpaccio flavor tightens the flavor up and gives a more three-dimensional flavor. The natural sweetness of the capsicum matches very well with the fruity Cava Yate Rose flavor. Myoga ginger matches well with strong characteristic white wine such as Gewurztraminer and Viognier and rose. When you eat carpaccio and sip Yate Rose, a round harmonized flavor expands in the mouth and you will feel a smoky tone that comes from the grilled carpaccio as an aftertaste that makes it a more complicated marriage.

    If you add Pizza Margherita that matches perfectly with Cava Yate Rose, you already have a simple dinner ready!
