Friday Night Tasting: Antiquum Farm

As winemaker for Antiquum Farm, Andrew Bandy-Smith works with owner and farmer Stephen Hagen to usher a distinct interpretation of place into each wine. Antiquum is an idyllic scene from a time before the introduction of modern farming. Flocks of sheep and geese graze the vineyard hillsides throughout the growing season. This grazing based system requires no fertilizers, composts, tilling, or irrigation. Farming this way is not just about growing wine, it is a way of life.

Monday Night Tasting: Abacela

Proprietors Earl and Hilda Jones, long admirers of fine Spanish Rioja wines, were curious why Tempranillo had never produced exciting wines in the New World, even after 100 years of cultivation in California. In this dichotomy they saw both a challenge and an opportunity, so, in the early 1990s they purchased 500 acres of rolling oak savannah in the Umpqua Valley AVA and established Abacela. The name comes from the Spanish/Portuguese word abacelar, which means to plant a grapevine. Today, Abacela is considered a modern era pioneer and leading producer of Tempranillo and other Iberian varietals in America.
