Winemaker Notes

From the Piedmont region of Northern Italy, the name means "little sweet one," referring to the sweetness of the juice at harvest time. Dolcetto is fermented dry and noted for its soft, lush and supple qualities. An excellent choice with any Italian or Mexican dishes, fish, game or poultry.

Callaway Vineyard, California
Image of winery
Callaway Vineyard & Winery was founded in 1969, when Ely Callaway and veteran viniculturist John Moramarco planted their first 105 acres of vineyard in Temecula, California. Temecula is 60 miles northeast of San Diego and has a unique microclimate created by the ocean breezes of the Pacific Ocean only 22 air miles away. The growing environment is similar to the coastal wine producing regions of Central and Northern California. The soils of the valley are made of decomposed granite, and are Phylloxera-free. This allows Callaway to plant vines on their own, native vinifera roots - a rarity in California.

In 2000, Callaway expanded its grape sourcing to include all of California's prime Coastal winegrowing regions and shifted the entire brand to Callaway Coastal. With these new coastal vineyards, cooling ocean winds and fog moderate temperatures during the growing season, lengthening the time on the vine and producing fruit with concentrated varietal character and lively acidity. Callaway Coastal wines include Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot; as well as three Coastal Reserve limited production wines, Chardonnay, Merlot and Viognier. Callaway Coastal wines offer crisp, fresh fruit character and subtle complexity -- great with today's inventive, flavorful food styles.

California

Responsible for the vast majority of American wine production, if California were a country, it would be the world’s fourth largest wine-producing nation. The state’s diverse terrain and microclimates allow for an incredibly wide-ranging selection of wine styles, and unlike tradition-bound Europe, experimentation is more than welcome here. Wineries range from boutique to massive corporations, and price and quality are equally varied—plenty of inexpensive bulk wine is made in the Central Coast area, while Napa is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious and expensive “cult” wines.

Just about every style of wine you can imagine is made in California, from bone dry to unctuously sweet, still to sparkling, light and fresh to rich and full-bodied. Each AVA and sub-AVA has its own distinct personality. In the Napa Valley, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and other Bordeaux varieties dominate, as well as Sauvignon Blanc. Sonoma County is best known for Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Zinfandel. The Central Coast has carved out a niche with Rhône blends based on Grenache and Syrah, while Mendocino has found success with Alsatian varieties such as Riesling and Gewürztraminer. With all the diversity that California has to offer, it is certain that any wine lover will find something to get excited about.

Other Red Wine

Beyond the usual suspects, there are hundreds of red grape varieties grown throughout the world. Some are regional indigenous specialties capable of producing excellent wines on their own, while others are better suited for use as blending grapes. Each has its own distinct viticultural characteristics and aroma and flavor profiles, offering much to be discovered by the curious wine lover. In particular, Portugal, Italy, and Greece are known for having a multitude of unique varieties.
