A Tasting with Amalia

For Episode 27 of The Wine Stream we will have the opportunity to talk with our mother—Amalia Palmaz—about her eponymous wine, the Amalia Chardonnay! In honor of this special episode, we’ve asked Amalia to pick some of her favorite Palmaz recipes that pair beautifully with her chardonnay. She’s chosen three: Smoked Salmon on Wasabi Caviar Stars, Duck Confit with Frisée Salad Lyonnais, and Seafood in Roasted Vegetable Consommé with Quinoa Pilaf.

These recipes give you a chance to participate in a live, virtual tasting during the Wine Stream this month. Make all three and enjoy a multi-course meal, or just make one—but make sure to have a glass of Amalia Chardonnay in hand!

Brasas Wagyu Beef Delivery Will Make You A Summer Grill Hero During The Pandemic

BY BAILEY S. BARNARD | MAR. 24TH, 2021 | ORIGINAL ARTICLE

One of California’s premier beef farms will deliver its Prime-grade, purebred, and 100% grass-fed Wagyu beef to your door through its delivery and subscription service. And the meat is as good (if not better) than any cuts you will get from a Michelin-starred restaurant. The farm is called Genesee Valley Ranch, the service is called Brasas at the Table, and the meat will make you a grill hero this summer—especially during the pandemic, when eating at home is still safer than dining out.

PALMAZ ROSES

by Florencia Palmaz | May 3rd, 2021 

Roses growing in our vineyards look gorgeous, sure, but we plant them for a variety of reasons—not just because they add a pop of color.

Historically, the practice of planting roses in vineyards originated in Europe, like many winemaking traditions. Winemakers in Italy and France placed them at the end of rows for mold control and to help guide plow animals. During times when oxen and horses were commonly used to plow vineyards, rose thorns would keep them from cutting corners and damaging the vines.

LIQUOR: The 11 best Rieslings in 2021

LIQUOR: The 11 best Rieslings in 2021

Culinarily speaking, Germany is known best for its bratwurst, pretzels, sauerkraut and beer. But in the wine department, Germany is near-synonymous with riesling. Not to say that only Germany can make a decent bottle of their homegrown variety (as you shall see).

Riesling is a tough grape; it’s drought-tolerant, heat tolerant, and packs a relatively high acidity. And yet, its structure is determined by the terroir where it grows, easily manipulated by soils and climates.

Riesling was officially first planted in California in the town of St. Helena in 1861. Back then, it was known as “Johannisberg Riesling,” a reference to Schloss Johannisberg –– one of the oldest Riesling producers in Germany. In the 1960s, Riesling was one of California’s most popular grape varietals but was pushed out by Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc from the ’70s onward. Today, Riesling is mostly grown in California’s cooler regions, especially in the Anderson Valley, Santa Barbara, Monterey and higher elevation vineyards in Sonoma and Napa Valley.

There, in 1881, young Henry Hagen arrived and founded Cedar Knoll Winery at the foot of Mount George, where the Palmaz Vineyards and family reside today. Hagen would become one of the true pioneers of the Napa Valley. His noteworthy wines were featured at the San Francisco Opera House, and Hagen even won a silver medal for his brandy at the 1889 World’s Fair in Paris. In 1895, Hagen died, leaving behind 450 acres of vineyards. While Cedar Knoll is lauded for its wines and spirits, Hagen’s descendants didn’t share his passion. With the arrival of Prohibition in 1919, the property’s winemaking endeavors were abandoned until Dr. Julio Palmaz (co-inventor of the balloon-expandable stent) and his family purchased the property in the late 1990s and set about restoring its former glory.
