They're smarter than you are. They have a better moral compass than you do. And they know you should follow their rules their guidelines. Cause you know they have your best interests at heart. Even though you're not smart enough to figure out your own way life they're going to figure it out for you. And so they're telling us During this pandemic, we gotta be locked down, Got to close the restaurant's got to stay inside. Can travel can't go anywhere. Well, the interesting thing about that is Thies. Liberals are a bunch of big old hypocrites. OK, you got Gavin Newsom, Democratic governor of California. He says, You cannot go eat with people. You can't go out. You can't gather with your family too dangerous time during this pandemic, so stay home. Stay by yourself. Don't go to any social events. Well, so there's Gavin Newsom at the French laundry in Napa Valley with more than 10 people. Maybe 15 20 people. No mask, son drinking some good Napa Valley wine. Have you got a second? Wait not least drinking some wine while what are you doing? Natalie? How you drinking wine during the show. Badly. You're drinking during the show. What's going on here? Well, apparently it's National Cab Day. It is. That's what I've been told that somebody just wrote Taxi cab everyday. Everyday day, It could be a taxi. So I am now drinking. Suddenly Joe's interested he was doing something on the phone. Joe is that he's waving a glass of wine around it. Just like Whoa, Here I am about right. Yeah. Home for nine months. You miss out being here at the studio in the lining. No, we should say the jet. Jeff, Our engineer is becoming a Somalia. Yeah, we have a wine fairy here. Yes. Wine. Watch a wine fairy. We call it the wind ferry over. Stop that. But that was real. Really So inappropriate Zari that way. Yeah. Yeah, well, you said can you put your way? I would. I would. I would like to talk to Jeff about because I'm gonna do with state tonight for for the holidays we've got, you know. Two more weeks of fun times before we got the real holidays, kicking in which we'll do. Maybe we'll do a little wine, then then I think we have to have an intervention with Natalie. It's getting out again. I don't know. Every morning she's got a different line. She sometimes it Z sometimes is the wine speaking when she's talking to us, I'm a little something you wouldn't believe me. You'll know when the wind starts talking to you hasn't started talking yet. There's weather Staten Island accent comes out a week. I'd pay to see that. Also, the more she drinks, the more hair, the bigger the hair gets. No, it's the accent. Jeff, though. Can you put your phone? I have a question about the way we'll give you. Can you find him? No, No, don't don't don't want you to stand up and try to walk at this point. No, it's great. It's great. Would she? Would She drinks the wine, Michael Normally, she says, Okay, go to news. In other news go to news. It's time for the new. You know when that was he drinks the wine. It's like, Hey, when whenever you want, you know, just take your time. Whatever you want to do. If you can find Jeff, I would love to ask him. I'm gonna buy a rib eye steak tonight to make for Kristina myself, and I would love to get a couple of wine recommendations from Jeff, who's an engineer. But he's also becoming the Somalia and by the way, becoming the Somalia is not an easy thing. You have to really get smashed to be able Tonto might go because apparently C 100 has stuff from quick check over there right now, so I'm probably gonna go soon. So what does that nice talking in A jiffy Lube? What is quick check quick tick. Well, I guess they're mostly in New Jersey. But quick check is like a 7 11 kind of, but there are also great Subs. Wow. Yeah, I love I love quick check. I'm there. Really? Wow. I love that stuff. You still want to go have a 7 11 sub with your cabernet. Well, you got class vodka. I will tell you that the last time quick check came here. You guys love their cookies. They have great cookies. Oh, yeah. Who remembered more interested in the cabernet sauvignon blanc. But anyway, so these liberals are a bunch of hippie. Oh, yeah. What are you talking about? Seating. Len, change the subject. He doesn't want to deal with this. Essentially that went out. I did a good job of that, didn't I? All right. So you got Newsom? No gatherings. Well, he's there at the French laundry without a mask on drinking cabernet. And then you got this London breed. I don't know what this woman is. She's the Democratic mayor of San Francisco. She also is going to shut down all the restaurants there. Where did she go? Joe? She goes to the French laundry as well. And she has a $450 bottle of cabernet sauvignon blanc from the Napa Valley. So she's a hypocrite. Of course, we know No sneeze. Of course we know Nancy Pelosi. No salons opened in San Francisco. But for Nancy Pelosi there open she could get her hair done right there. And then you got this moron. Steve Adler, the Democratic Maribel Austin, Texas. He says. Don't go anywhere. Thanksgiving. We don't want you to spread the virus around. So what does he do? Gets on a private plane flies to a villa in Kabul, San Lucas Hang out with a bunch of people. I mean, these hypocrites are unbelievable. And yet people like Len will always give them a pass. Because apparently, how's the wine? Is it really good news? News news for the news? Here's Natalie knows Stafford Stafford this You know what This guy, I would. Um, uh, relax some of Mike. I'll give up some of my time to get an answer from you Land on how you feel about those democratic hypocrites. You're never gonna answer from Len. No way. I think it's time for the news, Joe.

The mayor says he consulted with austin's top health authority. Dr marcus guide adler says he held the event outdoors and guest had to maintain social distance. He said the bride and groom gave out mass. Although he does not everyone wore them the entire time and everyone had to get a covid. Nineteen test prior to attending several wedding. Attendees luda awesome from across the us including seattle-based wedding photographer infections. That could happen what we did. As we say complying with the next day eight of those attendees including adler and both immediate and extended family members departed for their trip to kabo the day after they left. Dr scott issued this public warning. If you're going to a restaurant with your family the people who live in your household now with family and friends outside of your household start to decrease those. Those traveled outside your home in our as he did that. From timeshare in kabul the mayor of san francisco was just busted for eating at the same high end. French restaurant napa the night. The the governor gavin newsom was busted for the same thing more and more and more of these cases kayleigh mcenany at the press conference yesterday. The white house press secretary. She actually showed video on loop during her press conference of these liberal democrats and in fact. Here's the thing the thing about it is. They're killing the people that live in big cities rural communities aren't doing this it's democrats being hurt by this and that is why on cnn. One of their liberals blasted the covert hypocrisy. Because that's the people. It's actually hurting. This was product leaders apologizing or reversing course after multiple currencies of. Do as i say. Not as i do. They have been caught not following their own corona virus guidelines in san francisco. Air london breed facing backlash. After it was revealed that she attended a birthday party last month at the french laundry. The themed an exclusive napa valley restaurant with seven other people at her table. The mayor's office says it was an open air table which seems like semantic since it was a partially enclosed room complete with ceiling and chandelier according to the san francisco chronicle and when this party happened. Such gatherings were discouraged by statewide guidelines. Even if indoor dining was permitted in napa county. The mayor had traveled to the dinner outside of her own city which was on the verge of entering its red tier the second most restrictive for the state and yesterday breed warned. That san francisco may close all outdoor dining because the restrictions have not been working. We have to continue to do our part to distance ourselves from one another and to limit our our activities. We are in trouble and we are sounding the alarm as i said before. So that's going to mean some real challenging months ahead now. The restaurant has been quite the draw for democratic officials. Define the spirit if not the letter of the very regulations. They're telling their constituents to follow the day before breeds dinner at the french laundry. Governor gavin newsom also attended a party there with the least a dozen other people from different households. He later apologized for it. The spirit of what. I'm preaching all. The time was contradicted. And i got on that and so i want to apologize to you Because i need to preach and practice not just preach in los angeles county supervisor. Sheila culed voted to close outdoor dining last week and then dined at a restaurant before the order took effect while explaining her vote.

Cules office says she felt sorry for the restaurant businesses struggles and vowed that she would not dine out again until the county permits it and in san jose california. Mere samll accardo is also apologizing for ignoring state restrictions during thanksgiving when he attended a gathering with his elderly parents that included guests from five different households california limits households at private gatherings to three before his large thanksgiving dinner. Mayor licadho had tweeted this guidance quote. Cancel the big gatherings this year and focus on keeping each other safe in denver mayor. Michael hancock told residents of his city to skip. Large thanksgiving dinners quote. Stay home and stay in touch with friends family by phone or online. He sent that tweet and then he promptly appeared at the denver and flew to mississippi to spend the holiday with his wife and daughter the mayor's office confirming his travels and hancock later releasing a statement asking his city for forgiveness. He said this quote. I apologize to the residents of denver. Who see my decision is conflicting guidance to stay at home for all but essential travel. I made my decision as a husband and father and for those who are angry and disappointed. I humbly ask you to forgive decision that are born in my heart and not my head now. He apologized to the residents who saw his decision as conflicting with guidance. But to be clear. This isn't a matter of interpretation. He did the exact opposite of what he told everyone else to do. And in new york governor andrew cuomo last week told a local radio hosts that his thanksgiving include his eighty nine year old mother. My mom is going to come up and two of my i Girls is the current plan but the plans change then in the very same interview. Cuomo told new yorkers that this couldn't be a typical thanksgiving for them that they shouldn't have friends and family gathering trying to people. Now you know you want you all these commercials on tv. And they're selling commercial thanksgiving right. Twenty people around the table pass me. The wine pissed mulas happening. That can't happen. It can't happen now. The backlash was quick. Cuomo suddenly changed his plans. One of the governor's advisors telling cnn that the next day cuomo would now be working on the holiday. The past few weeks brought into relief a pattern of leaders failing to lead by example asking americans to make sacrifices that they themselves are unwilling to make an appearance. Sorry only when they're caught trust is built slowly that it evaporates faster than reservations at a fancy restaurant. A lot of these leaders. They're looking across the aisle to blame republicans who aren't taking mask wearing seriously but maybe it's time they also look in the mirror and ask themselves if that moves bouch was.

"Let's start the our in one of germany's power cities frankfurt in an interview recorded just before the global pandemic lockdown typically berlin. Munich can steal the show at the german city of frankfurt shines on its own as a modern city that also offers a great look. Today's germany devastated in world war two bombings and rebuilt with a new design. Today it's a gleaming city of towering skyscrapers and powerful straddling the mine river and the mine river is find riverside park lined with museums and taverns that are popular for their apple. Wine to learn more. We're joined in our studio by two german guys. Caroliina marburg and barbara ship kofsky barbara and carolina. Thanks for joining us. Thank you having us. Currently know when people think frankfurt in germany. What do they think. What's the reputation of frankfurt. The reputation is of. I think in english it's referred to as banquet but we more often call it mine. Hatton mind being the river that runs through it and mine. Hatton the reference to manhattan so skyscrapers banks and all that which however implies a certain lack of soul and therefore a lot of germans like well frankford so it's it seems to be just bank money trade however if you actually get to know it. Compared to at first sight frankford is a love at second side because it is it has a lot of local. Beauty has a lot of local charm. But it's something you need to discover. Yeah and it does have a shiny skyline. It's a city of skyscrapers. I think mine. Hutton is a good name because in germany. There's nothing so close to new york as frankfurt and it's a beautiful sky and they take care of how it is assembled so even though it keeps growing it's nicely assembled. There's a pedestrian bridge across the mine. River the irony. The irony is energy and when you stand in the iron bridge. You've got these beautiful parks on both sides of the mine river and then you've got this skyline and it just feels like a kind of a german new york. It's actually the recommendation for some a night is to go to the other side of the mine river and sit down on the green get. Maybe a fish sooner and napa valley and then marvel at. That's gallon i you know. Most americans they go to to old stuff. I love to see modern skylines also. I like modern architecture. London is great for that and in germany. You wouldn't find that in munich that's for sure to find it in frankfurt and the the big skyscraper that's open for the tourist as i understand is the tower named after the river and it's fifty four floors tall six hundred and fifty feet up there and the terrace on top is just an amazing view at the city. Now barbara one. We're thinking about frankfurt. It also has obviously a lot of history. And i know there was a big struggle in the nineteenth century when germany was being united. There's a small states that spoke german and there was prussia and there was and those were of the leading contenders to be the force behind which germany was united but apart from prussia and bavaria. You had a bunch of little states than looked to frankfurt talk about frankfurt in eighteen. Forty eight and how that was part of this german unification while you have in frankfurt. The famous poet skier it used to be an actual protestant church and if somebody gets the german medal of honor. I'm gonna macos going to give that to that person. In that church it goes back to that assembly in eighteen forty eight. The first national assembly democrats were getting together and saying this is what we want. We don't want the monarchy. Let's be democratic country so it was sort of the home of the german Feeling for democracy rather than autocracy. Yeah you mentioned pulse church. i think. The englishman repulsed.

More Halloween Wines 2020

"It's now, it's me Dave from a cheap wine finder.com off the scary music playing which means is another Halloween wines episode. And today we've got I mean look at it. It's Freakshow Lodi Chardonnay. 2818. Yeah, it's a freak Show Off is actually not all that scary the scary but the freak Show is more reference to a long time probably novel side shows and on the front. There's the mermaid lady the fish lady and it's kind of scary in the Ray Bradbury Something Wicked This Way Comes kind of way, which I'm done with. They're trying to get in. But you know. It looks good. And it tastes great. And the best thing about this one thing I find our for $14 is from Michael and David their their fifth generation. I think the 6th generation still working at the winery grape Growers and Lodi the family has been farming there for over a hundred and fifty years, which is kind of off but I'm talking here which is kind of common in Lodi. There's a lot of the big names there have been there for Generations, which is one of the things I like about it were so many Palm wine brands in California are fo wine Brands mean no Winery. No Vineyard safe, they buy the grapes and they rent the space make good wine, but low tides that I'm not doing an old-school. This is a really good Chardonnay. It's half barrel fermented and 1/2 stainless steel fermented, but they used all new o'farrell's off. I don't know what he said, but I'm afraid now and 80% new French barrels and 20% new American Oak barrels that's expensive. This is a line. I found off $14 and that's an upscale a little detail that really makes this wine because it's got really premium. It's Gotta Stay prudent Michael and David they have different lipsticks sense cerrad a couple of other brands there. They do a good job along with Freak Show also has as in a Cabernet seven young at a red blend which are like those are three of the best things you can get out of load at. And you know, it's a really great place for value-priced. Why isn't this Chardonnay? Leave me alone. You're trying to scare me, but it won't work. It's a really great place though the San Pablo Bay, which is the northern part of San Francisco Bay goes far enough Inland, even though it's The Vineyards are like from 7,200 miles away from the ocean. The bay is up there and there's all these river valleys that go flowing through there. It's lower areas cold air gets funneled in there and they can have wine even though nothing around them is the old able to grow grapes. Napa Valley is north of them and West and they're in the mountains and that changes everything to load. I'm not have the mountains or they're they have valleys. This is a really tasty chardonnays and the oak program with all that new Oak and and the fermentation and Oak really comes through cuz there's some really delicious page here. And it's it's nothing is over-the-top. Everything has kind of bounced out and it's like there's some salty and loose things. There's there's some buttery phone numbers. There's some creamy flavors are some ripe fruit flavors. There's just a lot of flavor here. So if it's not the scariest Halloween one, I could come up with no skulls or you know, anything like that. It does taste really good. Can you hear that too, or is it just me? So anyway? I keep on taking ships cuz it's that good. It's a delicious why it's got its because of all that Oak and the way they made it they you know, even though it's a 2018. It's it's it's still a kind of a young one that's got a good and engages your pal in a really nice way. So that's it for me. I found a freakshow chardonnay from I have the zombies invading my headphones and They're good. So I'm the next one. Keep it cheap, but there's more Halloween's lines come in and adios, and bye-bye.

"And cheap wine fighter.com coming again with a kind of a fun one. Well, at least it was fun like adults playing until off the fires and Napa Valley half and all the tragedy and people lost their lives and grape Vineyards that have burned and raped Wineries and people lost their life's work off. But rather to be a downer when I dressed wine, this one is called the Trader Joe's Platinum Reserve Cabernet, Sauvignon, Oakville, Napa Valley 2018 lot 97 There have been a couple of bumper crops in Napa Valley Sonoma that area so there was Surplus and then the covid-19 off but these are wines and so to restaurants and for parties and none of that's going on right now. So there was a trip plus and there was going to be a great many wines that were going to be a prices. They usually never AR CNET and Trader Joe's was starting to show this was a velour the Palm Spring Mountain at Atlas Peak and there might be another one all Napa some Indian from a high-end subdivision small places. I think the Oak Grove that's where Screaming Eagle is front Screaming Eagles when it was 100 Point perfect lines themselves in the thousands of dollars and I figured out I'm going to have a 1490. I have one that off. Ghost videos of Vineyard within two miles of that place or or something like that. I don't know where the vineyard is. They don't tell you that when you're paying $49 for high-end. Well, I'll tell you about you all the details, you know with Cooperage what force the old came from who's arrived start with winemaker the history of the winery all and for the price of these things and when you don't offer you get cheaper, so I don't know if there's still going to be a a glut is just the last gasps Trader Joe's were you want to run out and find these small production wines? I think there was a little bit less than five thousand cases. There's twelve thousand twelve bottles off the case for each of these but which you know is a lot of wine, especially when it's a nationwide distribution. So, you know on a Thursday Supposed to go to continue there's resorting lions and in the works that are coming our way out of cheap price, but you know a lot of that, you know a big deal any more with the fires are happening there and you'll see the devastation and I know you know people lost their lives people of lost history things. They worked on forever. You know, I just saw a man who had 100,000 bottles in one of his buildings in the building burned burned out. It's just, you know, it's crazy drink to him. I'm going to do that. So I don't know if this is gonna be the last of the cheap wines from Napa Valley. They're coming up or what? But they're good the 1499. There's over those got a nose that is worth you just smelling it all the different Roma's going on in there is worth forty nine thousand. I mean you don't get that and just regular then there is a reason why these Appalachians are famous and this is a 2018. It's not a young age worthy. Why that's drink it now. Maybe you could put it away for a couple of years if you want to you know, but it doesn't need to you can drink it right now, but it tastes great. It's got a lot of flavor. It's got its Sleek doesn't have a lot of Weights medium weight on the palate. It's liquid has a ton of flavor. It's you know, it's just kind of flows money's nice deal II 1499. It kicks butt Trader Joe's says that it's if it were a retail branded. Did you have an air brand on it? What's so for about $30 and $30 Napa cabs are starting to really ride, you know that when it starts getting more expensive a lot of that is because of its more often. It's it's rarer line mean, there's not enough to go around you gotta pay to get them but you really hitting some really good wines when you get dirty on the upper end or you can go higher the 13 get you some good one.

Trader Joes Reserve Carneros Chardonnay 2019 Review

"Then from cheap wine finder.com with a wine review today from Trader Joe's they actually have some interesting wines right now. There is a deadline blood or they were supposed to be a wine glass. Mostly Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley and covid-19 is kind of shut down restaurants sales and you know, there's the fires out there are doing anybody any favors right now, but that's where we're at. And so they're starting to see and Trader Joe's has a bunch of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. This isn't one of them. This is let me grab the bottle so I get it right. It's the Trader Joe's Reserve Chardonnay canero. Snap Valley 2019 lot 204. Keep in mind the 204 cuz there's also a 205 lot 2:05 and I believe that is a different producer Jim. All together. These are small production lines from a high-end growing area. This is a crime chardonnay pinot noir grow name is Richard name the 2019. So too young why not drink and now one but that's fine. Drinking now lines are usually made simply let those grapes shine through, you know, you're you know in not a lot of age and not a lot of this has some but not a lot and it just lets the grapes be nice and juicy and bright and when you have upscale groin area with expensive types with high-end Vineyards will have a young lion that what's the grapes shine through was a very very nice thing. Canaris is half and Sonoma happened. Napa Valley funny thing I'm going to label if it's in the Napa Valley where The Vineyards are that will be on the label. If it's on the snow my side to the second Narrows, you know, I guess that's being Snappy or something to take a sip. It's pretty good stuff. Nick an arrow Southern border even though it's Inland is the San Pablo Bay which is the northern part of the San Francisco Bay which has brings very cold cold pack Waters all the way Inland and you get the breeze as you get your basically on the coast, even though you're Inland and so it's kind of a freak of nature in the truest sense that it makes good wine that The back label said it was made by a good Winery and I couldn't really find an avid Winery but there isn't in the same town. They're from there's an avid Vineyards. Who do I end up, you know the wire in the exact same city, so it might be a part of that and they're high-end producer and I kind of think this wine is from a high-end booster. They bought the grace we can narrow so they made it wherever in Sonoma Coast region because the bottles a heavy bottle when you get these $10.99 off but usually a lightweight Echo bottle so it's less glass and cheaper to transport since it's a lighter weight wage actually has a real Court which you know for it's a line and should have I keep my quirks, but I have a whole bunch of them and it's so rare. It's always these kompas. Some of these plastic things or I don't know that's why I'm you know, you know, you should put screw Tops on if you're going to use these crappy things just put screw times, but this one actually has a very decent quarterback, but young wine one you wouldn't age so sign up like thick cork but it's way better than ninety-nine ninety-nine and Trader Joe's chardonnays normally have so it's need to be ironed grapes from a producer isn't really always that into making value-priced wines. It seems they don't tell you much about these things. You have to guess on what you get off, but that's what I'm guessing. It's from caneros. It tastes really good. It's a young one. Like I said the Young Lions are style. That's another thing and canaris. They don't make you online. This is Page nineteen if they just went in 2018 and made the line little more complicated a little bit longer and Barrel they can sell it for twenty twenty five dollars. You know, why solo / 999 that's one of the things at Trader Joe's Is actually kind of cool for Trader Joe's will give you a drink at now young wine with really upscale grapes. You don't really get that everywhere and that's kind of one of those when they really good things about about you know, people say, oh it's cheap wine iron. You got it all wrong you getting these unique wines up. You can't always get everywhere. So yeah keep that in mind if you if you off at the 205 lot 205 is in your store will like this isn't going to tell you everything this is for the lot 204 but it's really good. If you're into Chardon eight by it off. It's it's plenty good. It's some it's a taste of Carneros grapes that you're not going to get at this price bed. So there you go. So keep it cheap.

How the North Bay Became 'Wine Country'

Bay Curious

How the North Bay Became 'Wine Country'

"To answer Michael's question about when wine country got start and how it became. So popular, we brought in reporter Christopher Beale Hey Christopher Hay alluvia. So let's start with when wine grapes were first planted in the North Bay. When was that all the way back in eighteen twenty three the Spanish created a mission in Sonoma's. It's the first place where grapes were intentionally planted in wine country but the wine made from these grapes was Sacramento Kinda like alcoholic. Grape juice used in church, not what we would recognize as wine, and then in eighteen thirty s some of the early European settlers in the NAPA sonoma valleys would have grown some basic wine grapes as well. Now, when does the wine country that we think of today start to take shape for the sake of the story let's start in eighteen forty California is ten years from entering the Union and this guy named Charles Krug arrives in San Francisco. Crew was a German after the revolutions of eighteen, forty eight in Europe the comes into San Francisco. It was the editor of a German language newspaper in San Francisco. That's Jim Lapsley he managed agricultural continuing education at UC Davis for more than thirty years with focus on wine-making. Now, after a few years in San Francisco Charles Krug gets married and ended up as a dowry getting quite a bit of land. This is the area just North of Santa Lena where the Charles Krug winery is located considered. It'd be the first commercial winery in Napa Valley. The wine country story is really one about marketing and innovation, and this Guy Charles crew gets credit for a lot of the early innovation and wine country including being the first to use a cider press, which is kind of like a slotted barrel to press wine grapes before that grapes were generally crushed by people's feet. When California entered the union, it was a place where we could grow grapes because the climate was quite similar to the southern Mediterranean. It was dry during the summer it had wet winters and differ grew very well here in California. For, is a species of grapevine. It's used to make wine after the early success of pioneers like Cruyff people began to plant grapes and produce more wind and the NAPA and sonoma valleys. But this was still considered low quality table wine and it continued to represent only a fraction of the US market mainly because it was still cheaper for east coast consumers to import wine. From Europe by boat, then from California by train. But that all changed in eighteen, seventy five, the US government stepped in and increase the tax on imported European wines to twenty cents a gallon which leveled the financial playing field for California's wine producers, and as a result, the wines dig it imported from Europe can be much more expensive wines and oak wine that was everyday drinking. That became the from California. Now. It wasn't a linear march from this moment today. The wind industry suffered a few major setbacks over the years but one way or another managed to survive them. Here's a few of the important ones I wine country was almost destroyed by bugs in the eighteen seventies. This is a microscopic bug that eats the roots of wine grapes. It's related to an eighth fit in it's called. PHILOXENIA. And when it arrived in wine country, it destroyed the vineyards to kill the vineyards and the only way could really come up with a solution was to plant on grafted vines the bottom, the rootstock would be a native variety and then on top graft with Vida's Benifica.

Hall of Fame pitcher Tom Seaver dies of COVID-19, dementia at 75

"Tom Seaver has died at 75 from dementia and Kobe, 19 and Calistoga where he owned Seaver Vineyards. Ah, five time 20 Game winner a 13 time 15 game winner. Spent 12 of his 20 seasons with the Met's most notably in 1969 when he led them to their first World Series title after they averaged 107 losses during their first seven years as an expansion team. I have first really got to know him when he moved to Calistoga in around 99 or 2000. Then he started working weekend games for the match. He would come into our broadcast booth because he would drive to and from SFO so he would listen to Giants games on the radio and my crew going. I would occasionally talk about why? Because Kruger was a big person in introducing me to a wide and teaching me about one and Seaver was starting the wine business. Well, then I go to the mess. I get a chance to work with Tom and then had the incredible honor a couple of times of being invited up to his home to see Passion he put into the wine business. This is whats admirable about him.

Tom built a house and then he planted the grapes. 10 Robinson on KCBS this morning, said Seaver nurtured those grapes. He didn't know how to make wine. He tended to those grapes every single day, and about three years ago, my wife and I had a chance to go spend an afternoon with Tom and he had already started to suffer more severe effects of the disease, and he still took us out on the vineyard. He still was tying vines together and walking and talking about the grapes he was growing at that point. Physically, he was still a strong man and a vital man. But His mind had had started to really suffer the effects of the disease self. I think he was quite proud that he started his life in California, Fresno and USC, and he ended his life. You lived the last 20 plus years in the northern tip of Napa Valley and his wife and his daughters. I think we'll carry on with the vineyard because they make great cabernet.

And didn't I couldn't quite get to and be willing to pay for it. What they want for it? Then I was with Bruce at an auction a few years ago. Another friend of Bruce's Phil Bennett. Bruce CANEPA sent between those two guys before the dangerous pair to be sandwiched between because they both have about as much experience and it's like the cartoons cartoons where there's little devil on each shoulder. You know telling you what to do so I ended up with this car fantastic now now that I have it I like to even better than I thought I would. And so it was a great day. Isn't that great that's fantastic. I know you've got it all Bentley to four point five right a special car but you're not driving that. Yesterday I was driving a little alpha. It's a neat little car. It's fantastic nothing better than the rear end of that Alpha. Yeah the Little Cam Tail Beautiful Flat Black and the tail lights. And what a great car I saw it. I didn't realize that is that it is an enthusiast car. But it's it's really a connoisseurs car because it's not high horsepower. Smells like thirteen hundred pounds. You Know Sixteen hundred.

I'm convinced that when we're young when we're in our teens you imprint early and what you see when you're twelve or thirteen years old kind of sticks with you for life life and that's what makes cars such incredible points of reference as we go through life we look back. We say man. When I was fifteen years old I was in love and her her name was this and the car was named this and all of those things continue to resonate for decades and decades and decades? And I think we grew up in exactly the man. You guys were you you. In the Golden Age we grew up in the forties so we had hot rods which were just dream machine. There are a couple I saw yesterday some thirty two to Ford just dead gorgeous hundred percent and so we we enjoyed hot riding. We enjoyed the birth of drag racing. which was last night with the snake? We kinda got into motorcycles when they were safer that's right because there were burnt people texting and driving. That's right so when you just look at the the time that we grew up place and place a hunt that's right. We had twelve months of beautiful Dr Driving. That's that's a really good point bill. Of course course they were always expensive. Always ought to reach a little bit but the good news is that back in the sixties and early Seventies. These were just old used cars and that made it great who they weren't these precious ten twenty thirty million dollar artifacts you could actually by up to seventy five. Gt beef and drive it. When we started focusing being on exotic sports cars going going four or five thousand dollars today? The radio upgrade for five. So well I mean you know you could buy a forty four for fifty dollars if he had a paper quarter. You could afford the kind of stuff that we had. I would say I.

We could cuss them doing anything we wanted to we paint them. We could change the engine. We can do anything if I had to. Cut Ask both of you your first the real car.

"So. That's that's the foundation to try to build a winegrowing state not own. The land was not something I was interested in this first forty years of the two hundred year plan was really about trying to identify and capture some of the very best land in America which I feel is not values. They produce higher quality wine in for a long period of time red wine Cabernet baseline than anyplace in America. And so I wanted to be here and I wanted to try to figure out how to uncaptured this land in a way that we create something beyond what had done up until now so that was the dream bit presumptuous. But that was the idea what were your first steps Persepolis to start to learn about the wine business what I was looking for land so he started a winery by buying fruit from different growers to get to understand the land and over over the next five years. Did this research started making wine. Learn about the wind business. Everything from growing grapes making wine to understanding how the distribution abuse network works in wind business. This winery had turned into a warehouse. So acquired the property and converted into a winery where we could learn and so had that property property for about thirteen years we grew up from about four hundred and fifty cases to about forty five thousand cases made every mistake known to man but We learned a lot. We bought fruit from over sixty different growers probably closer to eighty different growers over that period of time. And so we really got to understand the the lands of the Napa Valley's what about the land in the Western hills of Oakville drew you to it. The best way to the Napa Valley was on the west side of the valley. What they call the bench lands oakville rather for the bit so I wanted to be as close to there but the most valuable vineyards in the world were always in the hills especially they've done the most amount of research over the longest period time well over a thousand years is in Burgundy and you'll find the ground crews the finest vineyards are on on the slopes not down floor the Bali or the top of the hill but what I think of his at tenderloin so that was kind of land? I wanted to own land like that. Would I've been in the Western hills but they were all in forest and woodland so I was able to acquire a piece of land I forty acres and from there began to grow. And at the time that you acquired hired the land you had a hunch but you didn't really know that it was able to produce the kind of wine you wanted no. He didn't so try to hire the people that knew more about these things and certainly certainly more than I did at that time. So we acquired that land cleared the land brought into roads brought in the infrastructure planted the vineyards And began Dan making line. That was nineteen eighty-four. So here we are thirty five years later so That's Harlan the state and we have a good start The challenge now is working on bringing the next generation along. So we've been and working on that now for about Really twenty years but with our own family about twelve years at. What point in that process did you? You realize that you really did have something special and unique land that expressed a very unique character from the time we acquired the land planted bend in your until we sold. Our first bottle of wine was twelve years. You don't really get a crop for the first two or three years but starting nineteen eighty-seven. We made our first wine. By the the time we got to ninety the fourth vintage we could see that the Weinstein Rini coming along. I ninety one. They had made another jump by ninety four. We were convinced not only. Could we make good wine but we had two or three vintages backing it up by one thousand nine hundred ninety six this when we first came to the market. She got her voice as I felt like this risk may have paid off. Yes that's after twelve years of money going in without a Nikola revenue but then after that took another eight years before started to be profitable. But it's really about the second generation and in a way bond began even before Harlan estate because that project evolved out of your experience working with different vendors for so many years and your first project when we sold the property. Start Out Sunday. Selena winery when we sold let a ball. Those vineyards that we brought fruit from there was one or two that were head and shoulders above all the others and so we kept those two vineyards and that was the the beginning of bond those vineyards deserve to have their own label so that was the beginning of bond. We slowly grew bond over the next decade from two properties to five and so out of about a hundred different vendors that we bought fruit from and made wine we were able to capture five about one in twenty and then promontory also began early in your career to in a way because although it took decades before it was realised as a project you had discovered the land about the same time that you acquired this property Meta would this property and metal it was seventy nine and eighty eighty. The first time I walked onto the property which would become promontory was in nineteen eighty-four hiking in the hills in Western hills of oakville assembling. Land that would be Harlan Estate. But this property wasn't adjacent to that land analysts much larger and we weren't even sure at that time if the land in the Western hills we're going to be as good as we hope they could be so over the years. I kept my eye on that property. Took US twenty four years before we were able to acquire and before we had really built a team that had the capability of understanding it and before we had produced wine at the quality that we hope to and even maybe beyond but we very fortunate. The time of the depth of the recession really property became available and that was the beginning of promontory and it was also the beginning any of the next generation. So it's really about the next generation taking on responsibility of promontory and in their own way taking it to what they're working on now to the potential the promontory of our two hundred year plan we put together in nineteen eighty. Were now about forty years into and soon. It's going to be there turn. You've been involved than somebody other businesses and I know you were speaking with Robert About cars and the car world is when we're new models come out every year it's about speed of innovation with wine. It's such a different. You said it. Change Your Perspective on time but I would say that the change in time perspective happened for me very quickly up until all the time I was forty everything was working toward that point of disequilibrium of not knowing what's going to happen the next fraction of a second. That's where it's very very very exciting to live to live in zone. It seems like you need to continue to take pretty big risks to keep you in that zone of just just living in the moment so from the time I seventeen until I was forty I lived in that world time I was forty and went on this trip to seve properties that had been in these families hands for some time as many as well been fourteen generations it just gave you hold perspective. The cars do come out every year with a new model. But with where human nature nature delivers. You knew hand every year so we do our best to express a character not only the place from from where the wind comes from but the time that growing season certainly the difference between any automotive manufacturer and what you do in your wind. Businesses bill is is that the no automotive manufacturer has two hundred year plan and I think your vision is clearly one. That's strategic not just for the near term but for the long term but interesting thing. You're a big thinker. You're a long range thinker but you're also detail man and those are interesting characteristics to share the same mind most people people don't have that ability and I look at for instance even the labels of your various wines. Harlan estate promontory bond. These are amazing. Things you're aesthetically driven driven on every level someone sale. What is the vision? What is it all about? And what are you trying to do. And so we're kind of giving answers to that wish. This idea of creating a first growth has evolved into creating a domain of producing wines at the very highest level from a few different properties. I would say the things that they have in common more have to do with. Why the reason why for us? It's really too. I think over time we can delight white people. If we can with a little more depth we can begin to help enrich their lives maybe indirectly and if we can do that at high enough level to inspire them to maybe go beyond but I think of as elevating the spirit and we talked about these cars aesthetically if you have a car hi this beautiful it it makes you feel good even when you're not in it and once you're in a car that you've become at one with it you just feel great. They're so both awesome are about elevating the spirit. You know you think about throughout history what has elevated the spirit more than anything else and it really gets down down to art and so when you think of these fantastic cars you were talking about with Bruce and talking about the Peterson Museum. The automobile is going to be recognized is as a work of art. This great automobiles. I think some day wine will be recognized in the realm of art so if we can be working toward word producing something at that level that can have that kind of impact on how people cognitively think about things but also aesthetically. The emotional emotional connection is really about why we're in this business. And how those two relate I feel Bill Brett. This was a very rare insight and kind of special special quiet moment to get to really understand the depth behind the wines certainly the winds that you produce a remarkable but I think more remarkable still as the vision behind them and the in fact this mission is certain to endure for not just a century but centuries and more thanks for giving us that insight. Thank you thank you Roberts pleasure here to be at the table with you again. Well cheers thanks to bill. Harland Bruce Meyer and Brett Anderson for joining us on cars that matter and thank you to the Harlan family family and the Napa Valley reserved for hosting us. We'll see you next time to continue talking about the passions that drive us and the passion. We drive.

And so the two of US have our twin to seventy five long nose six carburetors or his way rare than mine and and it's just like one of those magical stories you know that just was meant to be well if she has any other garages with any other cars and give me a call. Let me see what I what a fabulous until the car has a great honor. It's basically guys that don't sell their cars. I love even today here. We are almost almost twenty years later. She comes up about every four or five years to see her car. She still loves that car checks in on the phone every so often and so. It's just a a wonderful experience. Some his whole thing with Bruce with Michelle with a car and just fate. What a fantastic asked thing show a fella named Peter Sacks about ten years ago probably caused said Bruce what do you think about doing an event you know in the Napa Valley is all? Oh my gosh this is perfect and I know right who to call so I call bill the whole thing happened tried here at matter with twenty-three GTO's out of what thirty seven seven were made these guys they don't like publicity they don't want to contaminate their events with anything other than GTO's. That's the only way that I would get involved organizing this thing with my pal bill that both of us were included in the rally and the whole event not seventy five or two in there. Yeah so are two yellow to seventy five hung with the GTO's and we had a great rally right at bills resort at matter wouldn't the I don't think they've ever had so many together at one time. And maybe the most beautiful place on earth is the winery bond. That's right and we have pictures of the gathering at Bonn and bond by the way is another one a bills enterprise. You've been to bond correct. Yes I have. Can you imagine you know you sit in that reception area and you see the parking harking out in front of your gun on two and a half billion dollars worth of Ferrari and by the way. That's only twenty cars. Crunch numbers quickly resist resist. Yeah let's get a little debate. Go between you guys know your friends but I'm sure there are some friendly disagreements to let me ask you got your desert island. You've got had an ice road on it and you can. We have one of your favorite cars. What are you gonNA drive? I'm a take on the car that like an old friend again. I had that car car since one thousand nine hundred sixty nine. I think lazing just just for our audience. Who probably doesn't know from Allard Obviously it's British car with a big American motor wonder. How would you define that as a significant car both historically and today? It's almost like a hot rod. It's British body and Frayne etc with Cadillac engine and that was well in advance of Carroll Shelby's to sixty to eighty cobra so they forged the way for a hybrid car put together in two basic countries the carpet south hybrid mid something else. Anyway I would say that. The design of the car is probably from the thirties but With a big engine edit it could it could compete but it was pretty wild car- Cartoon Testicle those vendors those outboard vendors Kinda just in the car when you see it if you got any interest in something that might be exciting. That was it. I'm not surprised. At what bill came. Up with Sydney our Allard was the Carroll Shelby of the fifties. He just didn't make the mark that shelby did. His cars are much more refined than esoteric acquired taste but whatever the engine is in that car is what it came with. I can tell you when you if you could see this car. That's unheard of by the way right. Those things used to blow engines I Nelson people would take the Cadillac and they pump it up and they make it look like the old Cadillac. The engines of the bills is the original engine and a three speed transmission. Because the first thing guys did when they started racing at Laguna Seca throw a four speed in it or mess with it. Bill never messed with it and I can remember member so clearly when bill ran his Allard. We're talking the first year the historic bill called me said there's an event up at Laguna Seca. Once you come mab wasted the Green Lantern in Carmel and bill drovers aller down from San Francisco and he raced it. Kick Butt and Practice Stephan. We're here at home and drove it home. But what made bill so at ease and that our is that bill really loves sideways. The brakes go out after the I lab in an hour so the way you stop it I mean is pitch it and I just happened to be standing next to Steve Earle. who was the organizer? And this guy came up and was like Apoplectic apoplectic that Bill Harlem was going to kill somebody because he was so sideways so out of Control and with I didn't realize that he was so in control threat threat. Anyway I can remember the way he drove that I told you bruce is a good story. Now it's my life was as good as his story. I have a feeling is probably pretty. Close Bruce Co Carroll Shelby's one of those larger than life characters and you fed along friendship with him during all those many years when he was kind of the luminary of the racing scene. When did you I meet him? I met Carroll Shelby in the mid eighties and a friend of mine knew him and put us together and I wanted to get the glovebox signed on my Cobra. Yeah I hear you there you know what I mean. And so like everybody so he was nice enough to come by my garage and shortly thereafter. He was waiting for a heart and he would come by when he was in the area driving. By so we spent a lot of time together. He was a very close friend of Robert. E Petersen person and I hosted him for lunch at my Country Club more than once quite a few times and they would sit there and they'd have their C- throughs see through and see through his and drink like do I remember that one time we sat there and we met at noon and it was like two o'clock in the lunch service was starting to close and they were on their third see-through oh man that had to be fun and the stories. Both of those guys lived lives that you just get larger than life larger than in life and I had nothing to add to the conversation but I would just sit there going. Oh you just discussing both great. I mean I know with Carol. You'd set up the Mike and Basically just kick back second and it would be a story like you've never heard before making it up on the flight stories. Were so great and he remembered everything and I would just sit there and I mean my Jain my you know I know he and Robert e Petersen would chat and then he had another good friend Johnny Myers and Johnny Myers was Jack. Northrop's best friend in the test pilot for the flying wing. I grew up with Johnny Myers. Son Liu so I kind of hung around the Meyers. We all used to eh boats up at the lake so I spent a lot of time with Carol. The stories are amazing. He was an amazing guy. I mean from the most amazing mazing salesman to boy. Some people said scoundrels. itsel the proverbial ice to the Eskimos but it was good ice when he made it was. You know I mean I mean he. He really brought it home. A friend of mine growing up an ally. The largest Ford dealer wasn't Galvin at that time Kobe Ford. That's right and Bill Cobra and I went to high the school together. So we were absolute best friend in high school. And I remember in the mid sixties when bill was saying because he would go back these big dealer conventions Carroll Shelby be just held up Ford for an enormous amount of money on this Lamar project. Carol knew he wasn't shy. Of course they here. Carol tell the story. We didn't get paid a dime pittance. I got paid a pittance. That's right those stole my show. You think about the time that I grew up in. Where's it's the best time? In the automotive history ever world yes you know from hot rods on an carroll shelby was hot rider. I've got a picture of Dan.

Admit that one you can't you can't you. Can't make this stuff.

When I was at Berkeley I was as a bartender at a place called the rescuer and it was the place to be Larry Blake who owned the place? Love any cow athlete and he encouraged urge just to buy beers for the Catholics. Of course bill was at cal. Athlete so rightly took Care Bill.

I'd always been a going was like the first supercar I it means still supercar. It's really kind of a lot of ways the first modern car that you can still drive today a hundred percent so I look and I see this car sitting there and at the time it had a reverse trigger on you know and I mean I knew what that was I knew it had an American engine so I went right away to the office and talk to Dick Clark Clark. Does that going of his chevy engine and he goes. Yeah Oh my God the perfect combination. Yep Yep no foreign exotic car with a motor. That won't break. That's right right boys and buy a set of plugs for called foreign cars. You meaning like nobody can work on them and boy nobody could work on.

Up is there any way or probably sure that some of the AC rooms would be up there or is that still kind of an type? Deal That's that's an I. Tuned I, tune thing. For now we haven't really decided what to, do some of that content becomes very. Dated very fast right so I I don't know about the long Javadi of it necessarily whatever's up I'm sure we won't take down oh okay I. Was just kind of curious that maybe. That would be something that was on, in archives. They're? Like hey, I remember when he went to XYZ brewing somewhere and that was. A pretty good show or whatever. Maybe, visit That was just whatever's up whatever is up now put it this way whatever's up there now. We'll probably, stay, where it is and got it I don't we, don't have any plans to take any of that, stuff down You on that question was is It was kind of interesting have you in your travels around through visiting wineries and breweries did you ever and you don't? Have any names, like specifically earned not at all but you're ago, to a place, where they said this. Is our this is our prime this is what attracts people when you went in there and it just wasn't your Cup of tea or just tastes like total dog shit or Syria was Yes yes of course Be out naming? Anyone. Without, naming anyone So the places with the nicest people families and what have you or with the most interesting physical locations You know wineries with tasting rooms with great works of art and what have you Have some of the worst wines in my opinion really I will give you an example because I've mentioned it I'll give you an example because I've. Mentioned. It before and they do have, one great wine, okay Now again this is my opinion your mileage may. Vary But in my opinion the Francis Ford Coppola winery. Has one great wine. And about two dozen my opinion lousy ones really lousy now. It's. Now called by the way he's. Changed the name again I think how it's called inglenook he bought the old. Inglenook, name, and Coppola owns the. Old inglenook winery facility In Rutherford in the Napa Valley Rubicon is one of the great red wines in the Napa Valley But I wouldn't. Give, you two cents for the rest of a wines of Coppola however if you're in the Napa Valley and you've never seen an Academy Award in person or you've never, seen the score of a great film like the godfather in person or if you've ever wanted to see a Tucker automobile. One of the three or four dozen that exist on planet earth. It's a great place to visit and I recommend it to those they have one of those at the Coppola or the place formerly known That is correct there is a Tucker automobile there The movie is fascinating I. Don't remember what bad thing happened in the, world the day that movie was, released was nine eleven or, some bad thing happened and the movie got buried but. It's really a great film. And That was, a real person and a real car Yeah. I wanna see that came out in the nineties I remember watching in the. Theater when I was a kid with my dad it was the whole thing was actually pretty, interesting because, he was kind of the front runner I guess for lack of better term like like. Features and carplay seat belts and. Things like that that was not mandatory at all and he kind of put those in there there a couple of different things that he had those cars as, well to the whole story was actually, pretty interesting, and you just got. Railroaded by. The you. Know essentially the big three so right it wasn't that is. The Tucker story is actually a pretty interesting story I don't think I, don't think the movie really touches all of, it but, if you do some research on them I mean it's pretty interesting kind of what he. Did for the automotive business when, they didn't care if you went to your. Windshield you know they'd. Just get cut the. Pieces so big safety glasses the big one too It's getting. Really nerdy but yeah. It was the whole Definitely Yes No I think it was safety glass to where it just didn't shatter like all the whole thing popped. Out I think that was the other night came out with two because back then it was essentially if you went through your like going through your opinion of glass, so but But that like I said I was just always. Kind of curious about that because I've been to some breweries, before where they're like oh. Yeah this is our you know this is the cream of the crop and everybody wants us to like. Man I wouldn't I wouldn't use this shift to degree the engine in my car so I was kind of wondering if you came across that and that's interesting to, know I tell you. What again if you haven't gotten Napa Valley which you must, do I must do thing Henry is a, great place to visit But unless you're drinking Rubicon. I. Wouldn't drink any of the wines there Yeah I've actually been I've been contemplating actually, heading down there I've got some relatives that live not far from.
