Children's Atlas of Wine Foothills, Lodi, Delta

From their beginnings, vines brought in from cuttings stuffed into miners' boots during the Gold Rush, the California terroirs east of Sacramento have boomed and busted in equal measure.Some (Sierra Foothills) have receded from view. Others (Lodi) have been used more as a bulk wine source by big producers than as an opportunity to express place.But today, whether in the bayou-green vegetation on the other side of the levee in the Delta, the flat hot expanse of Lodi or the high-elevation granite of the Foothills, some of the most interesting and diverse wines in the state are emerging: not coastal Pinot Noir, not cult Cabernet, but something both older and entirely new.

Children's Atlas of Wine Heart of the Loire

The longest river in France, the last wild river in Europe: the Loire contains multitudes. Its center, between Saumur and Amboise, is dedicated principally to two great varieties: Chenin, and Cabernet Franc.

The heart of the Loire yields some of its most powerful, textured, and complex wines, wines that gesture towards Bordeaux and white Burgundy while remaining uniquely themselves, and bargains to boot.

From Montlouis to Saumur-Champigny, from Puy-Notre-Dame to Chinon, we’ll take a detailed look at the sites and producers that make this slice of the river special, and continue exploring my favorite region of France.

Children's Atlas of Wine Spanish Wines for Anti-Fascist

Every once and a while, I'll catch myself and remember that the history of wine doesn't run parallel to 'real' history, somehow alongside and apart from it. Wine history is history. A vintage is a year in someone's life, and the lifetime of a vine is a human lifetime. You can talk, for example, about 'nearly 80 year-old Garnacha vines' in mountains west of Madrid.And you might think to yourself: Gredos is on the front lines; these vine cuttings are going into the ground ahead of Franco's army. It's 1937, and the city will be under siege for another two years before it falls to fascists. Barcelona is still free; Orwell has just gotten back from the Aragon front. Guernica has been bombed by the Condor Legion, and Bilbao's about to be occupied. And you can drink these wines today: Gredos, Getaria, Catalunya. We'll map and drink the wines of Republican Spain, including vines that were planted just before the start of their Civil War. We'll learn about Spanish wine's modern rebirth. And we'll  toast anti-fascism.

Children's Atlas of Wine The American Northeast

It's a good time to think about what's happening in my own backyard: to wit, a local vinicultural flowering that is genuinely exciting, and that feels totally distinct from the wines of the West Coast.'America,' by the way, doesn't just mean the United States. There is an extremely inconvenient border separating the Canadians of the Niagara Escarpment from the USians of the Finger Lakes, but the energy, the angle of the sun, and the feel of the wines have a lot to say to one another — to say nothing of what's happening outside of New York State in places like Vermont.Whether it's vinifera, hybrids, or combination wine-and-cider, there is history and a sense of place here worth exploring that's unlike anywhere else in the world, whether this is your own back yard or a peek into someone else's.

Deep Dive Godforsaken Grapes

Several years back, Robert Parker, Jr. posted a screed on his website against "godforsaken grapes" that, apparently, were being forced on an unwilling public."What we also have from this group of absolutists is a near-complete rejection of some of the finest grapes and the wines they produce. Instead they espouse, with enormous gusto and noise, grapes and wines that are virtually unknown," he wrote. "They would have you believe some godforsaken grapes that, in hundreds and hundreds of years of viticulture, wine consumption, etc., have never gotten traction because they are rarely of interest."I'll cop to being one of these 'absolutists.' (Although maybe not for the reasons Parker gives.) Ecological diversity in the vineyard is good for its own sake. Varieties Parker calls 'godforsaken' may be key to wine regions surviving climate change.And that's all not to mention the immense pleasure these diverse wines can give. We'll taste three unlucky varieties on an unlucky day and discover why they're not international superstars, and why it doesn't matter.

Deep Dive Not Quite Wines

When I think about beverages that say 'autumn' to me, a whole bunch of things that don't quite fit into the standard wine box start coming to mind: cider, sherry, mistelle, Madeira, amari . . . beverages whose character perfectly matches fallen leaves, the darkening approach of the winter solstice, decorative gourds, etc. But, for a variety of reasons, they don't have the cultural weight of 'real wine.'Whether it's non-grape raw material that's been fermented as though it were natural wine, or fermented grape juice to which other things (oxidation, fortification, flor, aromatization) have happened . . . we'll taste three drinks made almost like table wine that rarely get their due in classes like these, that are delicious, and that are perfect for late November.

Deep Dive Rebels in Classic Wine Regions

There’s a reason why wild experimentalists typically come from corners of the map you’ve never heard of before. When you’re trying to tend vines in some of the most celebrated places in the wine world, tradition hangs heavy.

There are family members to fight, financial barriers to hurdle, not to mention the expectations of drinkers who may not be happy to be surprised by a bottle from a benchmark appellation.

Nonetheless, just as in wine’s lesser-known fringes, there are dynamic voices bucking the current: renewing abandoned traditions, and trying something new.

Drink with James Drink Like a Sommelier

Being turned into tastemaking celebrities with our own TV shows was probably the worst thing that could have happened to people whose job description, when you get down to it, is making restaurant wine lists and bringing you a bottle to go with dinner.There are a lot of people in the world of wine — retailers, importers, and how about the people who grow and make the stuff — who arguably have a much more profound impact on how we relate to the beverage.Nevertheless, "NYC Somm" is a cultural bubble like any other, and to its credit it does happen to contain some of the most knowledgeable and deep tasters I've been lucky enough to meet.How do sommeliers taste, what do they love drinking, and what would it mean to approach wine 'like a sommelier'? For putting up with this ultra high-concept class topic, you'll receive some great wines to drink while we figure it out.

Drink with James Orange Wine

Halloween wines that are a lot better than candy corn! This time of year is traditionally when bad clickbait articles about pairing wine with Halloween candy flood the internet.I have to accept now that I've lost the pedantic battle in naming these wines. Turns out 'skin-macerated whites' was not a winner, and orange wine is here to stay.More than just a trend, though, it's a style with deep roots in ancient winemaking regions, and a lot of new playful experimentation as well. The sheer range of possibility is wider than red or white; we'll try to wrap our heads around what to expect, why winegrowers macerate, and why this pumpkin-colored style is perfect for the season.

Drink with James Sparkling Wines

Hard for me to tell you just how hubristic it feels to plan a class about sparkling, a style made virtually synonymous with celebration, for early November.But I want to say that's part of the point? The truth is, sparkling wines of all colors and stripes have a place on our table and in our hearts beyond wedding toasts and New Year's Eve,, Churchill and Napoleon, beyond that quotation about deserving champagne in victory, needing it in defeat.They belong in real wine glasses, with food, given consideration beyond their branding or house style.We'll learn about sparkling wine's complex and global history, taste three radically different wines that have come out of it, and, one way or another, we'll think about the future.

Drink with James Zinfandel is Actually Good

It’s the day before Thanksgiving, a holiday dedicated to the classic wine problem, “What do you drink that goes with a table full of completely different things?”

Zinfandel has not always been a great answer. But it has always been something people tell you to drink, on a holiday that asks us to consider what America means, and what it means to take care of one another.

Let’s be clear: it may have been imported from Puglia. It may have been born in the Balkans. But Zinfandel is quintessentially American. And for those willing to write it off as all sweet rosé or 16% alcohol port bombs, there’s a whole lot of wines out there now from some of the oldest vineyards on the continent that will change your mind: delicate and fresh, nuanced and complex, age-worthy bargains. Zinfandel is good, actually!

We’ll set ourselves up to drink three delicious wines with Thursday’s dinner, and maybe beyond. It’s that other quintessential Thanksgiving tradition: leftovers.
