Interview with Clos Du Val’s President/CEO Steve Tamburelli

Clos du Val winery has been in business nearly fifty years, founded in 1972 by French expatriate Bernard Portet with owner John Goelet. Portet’s French winemaking approach to fruit from Napa Valley earned the brand a dedicated following of consumers early on. Clos du Val captured the terroir of the famous Stags Leap District, Carneros, and Yountville, with the goal of making classic, timeless wines. Industry veteran and Napa Valley native Steve Tamburelli was appointed president of the winery in 2014 with the task of overseeing all operations, concentrating on estate-grown wines, and overall tightening the brand’s focus, production levels, and image. Tamburelli’s previously roles included Stags Leap Wine Cellars chief operating officer, general manager at Chappellet, and just prior to Clos Du Val, chief operating officer at Flora Springs Winery.

Born of Fire and Violence: Volcanic Wines

Vineyards and volcanoes may sound like an unusual pairing, but in truth, it’s one that has long been established. For hundreds of years, from Italy, Spain, to Greece, grape vines have flourished in the mineral-rich particles of battered volcanic rocks.

Five Tips to Improve Your Wine Game

Looking to improve your wine game? From chilling, to decanting, to navigating a restaurant wine list, here are five tips that save time, money, or simply elevate your wine drinking experience. 

 

1. Chill Your Whites Rapidly. You’ve got guests coming who will be eager for an aperitif, but your white wines are still in the grocery bag. The solution is not the freezer or ice cubes in your glass, but a salt water bath. If you’ve got an ice bucket, fill it with water and a few tablespoons of salt. Add ice cubes. Then, the wines. If you don’t have a bucket, plug your kitchen sink. The ice creates a freezing cold bath, and liquid draws heat from the wine better than solid cubes. The salt lowers the freezing point of the ice water, allowing it to become even colder, resulting in faster chilling. Finally, gently spin the bottle in the water every few minutes which helps expose all sides of the glass to the cooling bath. The result: wine chilled in 10-15 minutes instead of an hour.
