I had the opportunity this week to feature an event many are unaware of.  Once you attend the Capstone Dinner Event you will make a point to never miss one.

This week I invited a representative from The University of Montana College of Technology Culinary Arts Department to join me on the WineGuyMike™ Radio Show©.  Kacey Swanson who is a student in the program and I discussed the upcoming Capstone Dinner Event.

The Capstone Dinner will take place at The Holiday Inn Downtown in Missoula on Saturday April 28, 2012 from 5-10PM.  The Holiday Inn is located at 200 South Pattee, Missoula, Montana.  Ticket prices for this event are $85.00 each.  For information on how to obtain tickets please call 406-243-7870.

I became familiar with the culinary program at a local event that I attend each year where I met the Director of the COT Culinary Arts Program, Tom Campbell.  I sought Tom out at this event on purpose to let him know just how inspired I was as a result of my interaction with his students.  The presentation of the food from this culinary program was beautiful; the passion shared by the students who prepared the courses of food was contagious.  Oh yeah, the food it was amazing too.  I was introduced to an instructor, Chef Suzanne Noyd who also owns The Butler’s Pantry.  The Butler’s Pantry is a catering company providing exquisite fine food for special events.

With my interest piqued I sought out to learn more about this wonderful program located in Missoula and respected regionally throughout the Northwest.  The Capstone Dinner Event is a combination of fine dining, fine wine, and a silent auction in which all proceeds support the College of Technology Culinary Student Education Fund.  This fund also supports competitions, exhibits, and field trips for the students, conferences and the Capstone Dinner Event.

This years event theme presented by the students; “SAUSSURE” (saw-sure), Explore the Alps in Montana – A Culinary Tour of Alpine Cuisine. Horace-Benedict de Saussure led the first expedition through the Alpine Range, believed to have founded Alpinism or Mountaineering.  Translating cuisine from Lyon, France to Vienna, Austria to the shores of the Adriatic Sea and infusing these dishes with Montana seasonal ingredients.  The culinary students are proud to show their unity by showcasing the talents and knowledge they have acquired over the past two years.  Don’t miss this opportunity for a great night out to experience a multi-coursed fine dining experience paired with exceptional wines.  There will be an assortment of delectable silent auction items presented and available for your bid.

For more information about this event and how to get on the mailing list, please e-mail Chef Tom Campbell at Thomas.campbell@umontana.edu or Kacey Swanson at kacey.swanson@umontana.edu

This week the Iceman Donald Ziraldo joins WineGuyMike for week two for the final show in this series on Ice-wine.  Last week we tasted the Equifera Riesling Ice Wine and this week I’ll taste the Equifera Vidal Ice Wine with Donald.

If you missed last week’s show with Donald and I be sure to listen to it, the podcast link is; http://trail1033.podbean.com/2012/04/01/wine-guy-mike-for-april-1st/  Talking with Ziraldo is like sitting in on an intimate wine education course.

The Equifera Ice Wine was a treat for me to taste.  Tasting wine with Donald Ziraldo was a pleasure and an education, one of my stand-out featured guests I have had the opportunity to have on my show.  In addition to last week’s following blog post I have included my review from this week’s tasting of the Equifera Vidal Ice Wine.

Ice-wine is a wine of extremes. Donald Ziraldo who produces Equifera Icewine is a man of extreme passion.  This week on the WineGuyMike radio show I had the pleasure and opportunity to talk with Donald and learn about him, his life’s body of work, and the Ice-wine he is so passionate about.

Ice wine is a form of extreme winemaking that takes the excruciating circumstances of Mother Nature to an entirely new level.  Ice-wine or “liquid gold” as it is referred to by wine aficionados is a dessert, or aperitif wine.

The practice of making Eiswein in Germany dates back to the early 1700’s.  But it is in Canada where it has become a modern day art.  Canada is now recognized as the finest Ice-wine producing area in the world.  This is mainly due to the Herculean efforts of one man, Donald Ziraldo.

Ziraldo is known as the “Godfather” of Ice-wine throughout the world.  He is also readily acknowledged as the world’s foremost authority on Ice-wine’s.  Ziraldo is the son of Italian immigrants who settled in the Canadian province of Ontario.  This is just across from Lake Ontario, one of the best known wine regions in the United States, the Finger Lakes region.

Ice-wine is a winemaking style wherein grapes are naturally frozen on the vine, harvested during the middle of the night and pressed in the extreme cold to separate the juice from the ice crystals. 

If the freeze does not come soon enough, the entire crop can be lost to rotting and if the freeze is too severe, it can prevent any juice from being extracted when the grapes are pressed.  The results produce very special wines that express aromatic flavors of white and tropical fruits such as mango, peach, and lychee.

Donald Ziraldo has a long and storied history of producing fine quality wines with winemaker Karl Kaiser.  Ziraldo and Kaiser are the forefathers of Canadian Ice-wine, together they founded Inniskillin Winery.  The Ice-wines of Inniskillin put Canadian Ice-wine of the map of the wine scene internationally.  Inniskillin produced many internationally renowned wines.

In 2006 Ziraldo and Kaiser left Inniskillin, although Kaiser remains as an emeritus consultant to Inniskillin.  Ziraldo has a new wine project in the Equifera Ice winery. 

The Equifera Ice Wines are grown and produced in Short Hills, a sub-appellation of the Niagara Peninsula.  The Equifera Estate Winery is the former home to champion race horses in the 1950’s and 60’s.

 Equifera produces Riesling, Vidal, and red Cabernet Franc Ice-wines. This week WineGuyMike had the opportunity to talk with Donald about the beautiful Equifera Ice-wines, we tasted them too.

The award winning Equifera Ice Wine is a special occasion in a glass.  When I taste great wine it occurs to me that you can taste the personality on the person behind the wine.  This is true of the Equifera Ice Wine, perhaps the best of Donald Ziraldo’s entire body of work in the world of wine.

The first wine that Donald and I tasted was the Riesling Ice-wine.  The Equifera Ice Wines strike the perfect balance of sweetness and acidity.  The Riesling is lighter in body and texture than the Equifera Vidal Ice Wine that Donald and I will taste next week on the show.  The structure and complexity of this magnificent ice-wine go hand-in-hand.  You would be hard pressed to find more complex wines in the world than the Equifera Ice Wines.  You could think of the Equifera wines as having multiple personalities as there are some many layers to them, you must try them.

Visually this Riesling ice-wine has a deep golden straw color that dances in your glass.  You are then greeted with the aroma of tropical fruit and a wonderful essence of stone fruit, and the nectar of honey.  On the mid-palate combine a wonderful tug of war between sweetness and acidity. The complexity of this wine is so deep that of the finish your palate is cleansed from the perfect acidity of the wine, but it does not end there.  The finish is an eternity of joyful bliss, just like a world class Sauterne you are left with the flavor of tart raisin.  This is one of the premier dessert or aperitif wines you will ever taste.

Week Two wine tasting:

The Equifera Vidal Ice Wine is every bit as complex as the Riesling, the Equifera Ice Wines are tantalizing.  The quality of Donald’s wines is exceptional.  The Vidal varietal is a hybrid of Trebbiano and Ugni Blanc grapes.  The Vidal varietal is hardy and more resistant to the extreme cold than the Riesling.

The Vidal that Donald and I tasted this week is fuller in body than the Riesling Ice-wine.  The nose of the Vidal is beautifully aromatic with tropical fruits of pineapple, mangos, lychee and then notes of grapefruit.  When this wine hits the palate it just explodes filling your mouth with lush texture that clings to sides of you mouth.  The Vidal, like the Riesling from Equifera is so well structured and balanced with acidity that it cleanses the palate on the finish, but not without a lingering memory of rich tropical fruit and honey. Truly incredible wines from Ziraldo.

I would like to thank Donald for taking time to share his Equifera Ice Wine with the WineGuyMike audience; it was a memorable experience for all.

This week on the WineGuyMike™ show I’m very pleased to introduce you to a great winemaker.  Just like his Wine By Joe, Really Good Wine without attitude, this personifies Joe as well.  A really great winemaker without attitude, he just has a burning passion to produce great wines to share with you and me.  Joe does this and his Wine By Joe over delivers, just what WineGuyMike™ loves to share my readers and radio show audience listeners.  Let me introduce you to my new wine friend Joe Dobbes, Proprietor and Winemaker.

Joe Dobbes, Proprietor and Winemaker

Joe Dobbes, Proprietor and Winemaker

Joe Dobbes is a true Oregonian.  He was raised in a small town in the north Willamette Valley where he began his career in agriculture.  Joe grew, picked, sold, and delivered(by bicycle with his dog) Marion berries to the well known Smuckers corporation.  This set the stage for Joe’s entrepreneurial and winemaking endeavors.  Joe went to college in Ashland where he earned his degree in business.  Following college Joe ventured overseas and started training in the wine business in 1985 in Germany at Weingut Erbhof Tesch, located in the Nahe region of Germany.   Joe briefly returned from Germany to work with the well known Elk Cove winery in Oregon.  Joe’s continued desire to become a master at his craft of winemaking once again took him back to Europe to the hallowed grounds of Burgundy, France.   In 1988 Joe found himself working at the esteemed wine estates of Domaine G. Roumier and Domaine Comtes Lafon in Burgundy with winemasters Christophe Roumier and Dominque Lafon. 

Upon his return from France he landed his first head winemaking job at Eola Hills Wine Cellars in 1989, followed by winemaking positions at Hinman Vineyards where his entrepreneurial spirit blossomed when he revamped select Hinman Vineyard’s wines into the new Silvan Ridge Reserve label (1991 – 1995).  Joe then became Willamette Valley Vineyard’s winemaker and vice president of production, and simultaneously winemaker for the Griffin Creek and Tualatin Estate labels (1996 – 2002).

After 17 years of working for others Joe decided it was time to strike out on his own and founded Dobbes Family Estate in 2002 and Wine by Joe in 2003 and has never looked back.  Joe also has his own custom crushing company and consults for as many as twenty wineries. His real success though is his wonderful family, wife Patricia Dobbes and two teenage children, Amelia (AKA Skipper) and Griffin, all of whom have wines named after them.

Joe’s expertise lies in producing wines of impeccable balance that are true to their varietal character, specializing in Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, Viognier, Syrah and now added a Gewurztraminer, Rose, and Chardonnay into the mix.  I personally can’t wait to taste Joe’s winemaking touch with these new varietals.

The Dobbes Family Estate line of elegant yet powerful wines from Oregon’s premier vineyards carries the crest of Joe’s extensive winemaking experience.  Willamette Valley Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris; and Rogue Valley Syrah and Viogner are some of the best in Oregon under the Dobbes Family Estate label.  The specialty estate wines are all limited release and available online(where permissible) and at the tasting room.

Wine By Joe, the family of three Pinots, hit your tables in August 2004.  This fun package of serious wine begs to be poured on your everyday table with lots of great company.

In February of 2006, Wine By Joe, LLC became one of the largest vineyard holders in the state of Oregon.  Joe’s  214-acre estate vineyard is located in the Eola Hills/Amity AVA (American Viticulture Area), in the Willamette Valley’s Polk County, approximately 10 miles west of Salem.

The vineyard site has a cool coastal influence due to the late afternoon, summertime breezes blowing through the Van Duzer Corridor from the Pacific Ocean approximately 45 miles to the west.  The cool breezes during the height of the warm summer affects ripening by allowing for longer hang time in the vineyard for full maturity of flavors, fruitiness and overall complexity.

The vineyard encompasses eastern facing elevations from 203 to 328 feet and western facing elevations from 208 to 320 feet.

The vineyard was planted with Pommard and Wadenwille clones of Pinot noir in 1988.  Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris and additional Pinot Noir were planted in 1989.  The most recent planting took place in 2004 and 2005 to bring the total planted acres to 189; comprised of 80 acres of Pinot Noir, 82 acres of Pinot Gris and 27 acres of Pinot Blanc.

A special note to all of the WineGuyMike™ readers and listeners a portion of Wine By Joe proceeds are donated to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention Northwest.  Joe gives back and we love this here at WineGuyMike™.

I want to thank my special guest Joe Dobbes for taking time out of his busy schedule to be a guest on the WineGuyMike™radio show this week and to share his story.  Joe we love your story and all that you do, thanks for sharing it with all of us.

Wine By Joe receives the WineGuyMike™ Seal of Approval®, I recommend all of the wines from Wine By Joe.  All of the Wine By Joe are great companions for the dinner table too.  Joe Dobbes is an outstanding winemaker whose wines you must try.  The wines that Joe makes are a result of what he brings to the table from his Old World winemaking style and experience in Europe.  This is where Joe’s past intersects with a corner of what I consider to be some of the finest terrior in the New World today, the Oregon wine country.  The result is Wine by Joe.

2009 Pinot Noir suggested retail $19.00
