The Thibaut-Janisson Winery is a joint venture between internationally acclaimed Winemaker, Claude Thibaut and Champagne producer, Manuel Janisson, owner of Champagne Janisson & Fils. The goal is to produce a world class sparkling wine from the Monticello Appellation in Virginia. Claude Thibaut moved to Charlottesville, Virginia in 2003, with the first vintage released in November 2007 under the brand: Thibaut-Janisson “Blanc de Chardonnay”. Since he graduated over two decades ago from the University of Reims in the heart of France’s Champagne region, Thibaut has demonstrated superlative ability in the production of premium sparkling winemaking in regions outside of France. Thibaut encourages that sparkling wines should be enjoyed as a highly versatile wine that pairs well with an assortment of foods and can stand on its own as a daily pleasure and petite indulgence.

Joe Freeman has been Winemaker at River Road Family Vineyards and Winery, Green Valley, in the Russian River Valley since 1997. Vineyard sourcing defines the three unique series that include Sonoma County Vineyards, Reserve Vineyards, and Family Vineyards. The main focus in Chardonnay and Pinot Noir but today we talk about the newly fermented and very limited 2012 Nouveau Rosé of Pinot Noir Russian River Valley; the Russian River Valley Brut Sparkling Wine; the unique varietal bottling 2011 Hopkins Vineyard Pinot Meunier; and the 2011 Boschetti Vineyard Old Vine Zinfandel from the Russian River Valley. Pricing is incredibly reasonable!

In 2011, Champagne shipped 323 million bottles worldwide, with more than 19.3 million bottles shipped to the United States, an increase of 14.4% from 2010, making the United States Champagne’s largest export market outside of Europe. “I love Champagne. It is such a special wine to me, and there’s really nothing else like in the world,” said Nannette Eaton, creator of the Wine Harlots blog. “Even the everyday becomes extraordinary when you pour a flute of Champagne. Champagne makes everything sparkle.”

Laurie Schuler-Flynn and Amy DelBondio share an admiration for the age-old craft of producing olive oil and a passion for the art of food. The unique rocky soil and ideal microclimate in the rolling hills of California’sYolo County gives Hillstone Olive Oil its unique character. Each fall, the olives are hand-harvested in one day and pressed into oil using an Italian–made press. Only small closely monitored lots are produced to maximize quality and flavor. Hillstone Olive Oil has a distinctive, pungent flavor with hints of apple, artichoke, and pepper. Drizzle it on salads, pasta, or roasted potatoes. Dip a crust of rustic artisan bread into Hillstone Olive Oil... a small company in the tradition of small family farms.
