Winemakers answer the question


Welcome to a slightly different show this week.  Later this year we'll be celebrating the 12th anniversary of our podcast and for many of those years I've posed this to our winemakers, “What is the one question that you've not been asked, that you would like to be asked?”  So for this program, we've put together several interesting responses from our library of over 600 interviews.  I think you'll enjoy it!

This program features in order of appearance: DAVID RAMEY/RAMEY WINE CELLARS, ALICE WARNECKE SUTRO/SUTRO WINE CO, DARIO SATTUI, CASTELLO DI AMOROSA, VICTORIA ANGOVE/ANGOVE FAMILY WINEMAKERS.

Russian River Valley Pinot Noir | Zoetic Wines


Meet Zoetic Wines, a beautiful example in the wine industry where passion grows and grows and opportunity finds a way to intercede. Winemaker Kim Vance has dived deeper into Pinot Noir in the Russian River Valley AVA and is specializing in clones and single vineyards.  

Of the notoriously difficult to grow Pinot Noir, Kim notes that she started playing around with the different clones of Pinot Noir and actually aging them separately. Pommard flavor profiles really drew her in, with its fruity characteristics and nice earthiness undertones.  She also takes on 777 clone which is a little bit more earthy and not quite as fruity on the initial palate. Zoetic Wines bottles the clones separately which is unique. Single vineyard designates, where grapes come from one vineyard, is common, but you don’t see the single clonal a lot. 

Kim talks about how the vineyard speaks to her and she is of that place and it means a lot.  She uses what Mother Nature intends and doesn’t do a lot of manipulation of fruit.  The fruit is the best tool to have in your toolbox. And the barrels, whether neutral or French Oak, can add a lot of different components.  

She and husband David keep their operation small, so it is manageable and they can focus on getting the quality of the wine.  

Cellar Angels is very excited to see the growth of Zoetic Wines and what Kim and David are doing with two very, very special varietals.  Do yourselves a favor and grab some of this wine.  Thank you so much for all of your support.

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon in Coombsville | Sciandri Family Vineyards


Very excited to reintroduce Sciandri Family Vineyards in Napa Valley’s Coombsville AVA. Bringing 200 years of passion for food and wine from Italy to the United States. Sciandri’s first vintage was back in 2006, single varietal Cabernet Sauvignon from their single vineyard estate.  After years of growth, they now offer a blend, a rosé, estate Meritage, and a Sauvignon Blanc. 

All the wines are small-batch, hand-harvested, hand made. The artisan way.  Before they decided to produce their own wines, they tasted wines made by Don Baker at a local festival, fell in love, and asked him to join their team. Don has been making wine with Sciandri Family from the beginning.

As grape growers in the late 90s, Cabernet was the only varietal grown. After getting bit by the unofficial wine bug, the family planted the other Bordeaux varietals on their estate.  Three generations of the family are involved in growing and producing wine.  

Rebecca Sciandri says, “If you only serve good food so you can drink good wine, then you should only drink good wine so you can eat good food.”

Let Us Do The Driving On Your Wine Touring Adventure



Approximately 4 million people visit the Napa and Sonoma Valleys to tour & experience world-renowned wineries each year. Many decide to utilize the services of a limousine or private driver company while on their wine country visit.

After becoming a preferred driver and guest favorite for several local vendors, we began to recognize that we could offer customers a much more enhanced experience with an added cost savings benefit. This, in addition to providing full-service concierge standards, such as an end to end customized itineraries, reservation bookings at exclusive restaurants, and even sourcing rare wines that cannot be easily found.

Since launching WeWine Napa, we have been humbled by the amount of positive guest feedback and referrals received. As local residents for over 40 years, it is truly our honor to provide a safe, professional, and memorable experience while visiting this beautiful region. It is truly our privilege and goal to serve you.
