Graffigna Wines, San Juan, Argentina::
A New Wine Region to Keep in Mind. At the foot of the Andes, the province of San Juan, the second most important area in Argentina’s wine industry, produces luscious Shiraz, Malbecs.
Hayman & Hill, California:
Odd couple of winemakers from Australia and California joins forces to make their mark with affordable wines that capture the essence of California’s top appellations.
Terlato Wines :
This is the first time the Terlato family produces wines with their name on the labels. Terlato Vineyards 2004 Pinot Grigio Russian River Valley, Terlato Vineyards 2003 Syrah Dry Creek Valley and Terlato Vineyards 2003 Angels’ Peak Napa Valley Bordeaux blend.
Grich Hills, Napa Valley::
New Releases by Grgich Hills are always very exciting. One wonders how this winery manages to surpass itself year after year; thirty years after the legendary Miljenko “Mike” Grgich’s “coup” at the celebrated “Paris Tasting” of 1976.
St. Supéry, California Lushness with French-Style Subtlety:
Rich, complex, and approachable Napa Valley wines are more in tune with Bordeaux wines than with their California counterparts. Three exceptional whites have just been released.

MENDOZA Wine Capital of Argentina Mendoza is hot. Like Napa Valley was 30 years ago. With a strong US dollar and an even stronger Euro, tourists, merchants and sommeliers from high-end restaurants in the United States and Europe flock to the Andean city for skiing, trekking, wine tasting and eating in what are some of the best restaurants in the country.

Everybody knows about Pesto -- fresh basil, a touch of garlic, Ligurian olive oil, untoasted pine nuts, a pinch of salt and grated Parmigiano Reggiano -- the fragrant sauce originating in Genoa, Italy, that flavors from minestrone and pasta to fish and meat. Craig Colvin, the owner of Bear Pond Farm, has come up with a series of different flavored pestos certified organic by Baystate Organic Certifiers of Massachusetts. A favorite at the Fancy Food Show, July 2005 in New York City, the nut-free, low-carb and lower in sodium than most prepared pestos, Bear Pond Farm pestos are made with greenhouse organically-grown fresh herbs, including two rare varieties of the oregano-family plant not commercially grown in the US: Mentuccia, from Sicily, and Kaliteri from Greece.
