The Wine Institutes' South American Adventure
on "The High Seas"

Crossing Vineyards' Wine Institute recently sponsored a 14 night trip to South America on The Celebrity Infinity, which included visits to the ports of Buenos Aires, Puerto Madryn and Ushuaia in Argentina, Montevideo and Punta del Este in Uruguay and Punta Arenas, Puerto Montt and Valparaiso in Chile.
Breathtaking scenic cruising through the Straits of Magellan and the Chilean Fjords made this wine lover's voyage truly the trip of a lifetime. The Wine Institute's programs always take the "road less traveled" to create unique and memorable travel experiences.

See a slide show below...



The Jefferson Cup is is an "invitational" in which over seven hundred wines from around the country were pre-selected for exemplifying viticulture and winemaking in America. The Jefferson Cup Invitational does not award gold or silver medals. Rather, the invited wines have proven their excellence in competitions and tastings throughout the last year. Wines that win in the Jefferson Cup are deemed "extremely deserving" of the nation’s attention.

This year, out of over seven hundred chosen wines, the judges selected just over three hundred to receive the “Certificate of American Merit," which respects wines exemplary of their regions and varieties, and is comparable to a Silver Medal.


Wine Institute Trip Features 4 Days in Paris, Luxury Barge Excursion in Champagne and Private Tours in Alsace

Crossing Vineyards latest wine adventure began in Paris and included a visit to The Wine Institute in Passy, a Sunday morning organ concert at Saint Sulpice Church and lunch at Les Deux Magots, Hemingway's famous hangout in St. Germain des Pres.

For the following six days, Crossing's owners Tom and Chris Carroll, joined by Wine Club Members Mary and Rich Ryan and 3 other couples, cruised along the Marne River in Champagne. Highlights included a tour of Reims Cathedral, visits to the elegant champagne houses Moet et Chandon and Billecart Salmon and a private brie tasting at Fromagerie Ganot in Columnieres. A moonlight cruise along the Seine offered a perfect ending to their fantasy wine voyage.

The next chapter featured a trip on the TGV from Paris to Strasbourg, where the group enjoyed a boat tour along the Ille River and dinner at Chez Yvonne, listed by Newsweek Magazine as one of the world's best restaurants. From there, they embarked on a car trip along Alsace's famous Route du Vins, highlighted by the Harvest Wine Festival in Eguisheim, visits to the esteemed Domaine Burn, Sipp Mack Winery and Hugel et Fils among others, and tours of the Open Air Market in Kaysersberg and the famous landmark Chateau du Haut-Koenigsburg in Orschwiller.

This trip of a lifetime's grand finale included visits to Monet's House at Giverny and Musee d'Orsay and lunch at La Tour d'Argent in Paris. Great food. Great Wine, Great Trip!

The Wine Institute's next adventure is in South America, scheduled for January, 2013. There's still time to join us.

As Mark Twain once said:
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."

"We are always gratified to earn gold in this important regional competition," said Tom Carroll, Jr., Vintner at Crossing Vineyards and Winery. "We are judged with our peers by an independent consulting firm. The results are important and meaningful."

In this year's competition, Crossing Vineyards' 2008 Cabernet Franc won Double-Gold.

Colonial Christmas Dinner Delights Guests

Crossing Vineyards' Holiday Winemaker's dinner planned for Tuesday December 28 sold out quickly; so a second night was scheduled on December 29, and it too filled up quickly.
The menu reflected colonial culinary traditions with dishes like smoked turkey and apple compote on toasted corn bread round; individual chicken pot pies; and venison medallions with wild berry reduction, English peas, whipped sweet potatoes with crispy parsnip chips.
Dessert was delicious and representative of the period: Indian pudding with dried fruits and whiskey hard sauce.

Customers agreed this was Crossing's best Winemaker's Dinner ever!

PA WINERIES MAKE HISTORY EVEN THOUGH ATTEMPT TO ENTER GUINNESS BOOK FALLS SHORT
7675 wine lovers gather at 60 wineries to toast thriving state wine industry

Ready, set... Cheers!

At precisely 4:15 p.m. on Saturday, August 14, 2010, lifelong Pennsylvanian, wine lover and racing legend Mario Andretti raised a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon in a toast to the Pennsylvania wine industry and a Guinness World Record. More than 7,600 wine lovers gathered at 60 wineries across the state followed his lead, in what could easily be considered the single busiest day in the Pennsylvania wine history.

“We gather here in honor of the more than 100 wineries throughout the state, and the dedication, hard work and hospitality of everyone involved in growing, making, selling and, of course, drinking the wine that brings us to this memorable event,” said Andretti during the toast.

Andretti’s speech, broadcast to wineries via video, was the keynote address in the Great Pennsylvania Wine Toast, a one-day celebration of the state’s wine industry and an attempt set a world record for the largest wine tasting ever conducted. And although the attempt fell short of the official record of 17,540 (set at more than 400 United Kingdom pubs in 2008), the Pennsylvania Winery Association’s (PWA) secondary goal – raising awareness of the 130-plus wineries throughout the state – was an overwhelming success.

“Just to be able to bring the Pennsylvania wine industry to life the way we did and shine a spotlight on it for one day is a huge victory. We set out to show that our wineries are fun, exciting destinations and we accomplished that,” said PWA President Sam Landis, whose own Vynecrest Winery in Lehigh County hosted a wine toast event. “We might not have broken the world record today, but we certainly set a Pennsylvania record and we had a lot of fun along the way.”

A portion of the proceeds from the events held throughout the state will be donated to Andretti's charity of choice, The Fund to Benefit Children & Youth (www.fundforkids.org). The charity's mission is to provide abused, neglected and at-risk children with the items and services they cannot receive from traditional sources.


Crossing's Wine Institute Hosts 12 Day Trip to
Paris, Bordeaux and Normandy

The Ryans and the Carrolls at Chateau d'Yquem

Crossing Vineyards' Wine Institute, which provides courses and educational experiences for wine enthusiasts, recently sponsored a 12 day trip to France, May 15-26, 2010, as part of its International Travel Program.

The custom, private tour began with a free day to explore Paris and a Welcome Dinner at Le Reminet near Notre Dame Cathedral. The tour price included 3 nights at the Hotel Mayfair, a four star hotel near the Place de La Concorde in the heart of Paris.

The group was transported by High Speed Bullet train (TGV) on day 2 from Gare de Montparnasse in Paris to Gare de Poitiers, a railway station on the TGV Atlantique line between Paris and Bordeaux. After checking into a lovely B&B, Château Réal in St. Seurin de Cadourne, our travelers enjoyed table d'hôte with gracious innkeepers, Patrick and Violaine Lapeyrère.

Day 3 included wine visits to Château Sociando-Mallet, second growth Château Rauzan Ségla (Margaux), currently owned by Chanel, and Léoville Barton (St. Julien). Final stop for the day: fifth growth Château Pontet-Canet in Pauillac, where biodynamic viticultural methods are currently being used.

On Day 4, the group learned about the glories of the 2005 and 2009 vintages at Palmer, a third growth Château in Margaux. The afternoon included a visit to second growth Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande in Pauillac, which is currently owned by Louis Roederer Champagne, as well as tours of Château Réal's (Haut Médoc AOC) and Château Sérilhan's wineries (Saint Estèphe AOC), managed by Didier Marcellis.

One of the highlights of the trip took place on day 5, when the group enjoyed a private tasting at the world famous Château d'Yquem, a Superior First Growth Château in Sauternes. The tour guide's close friend Antoine Laborde was able to make arrangements, not just for a private tour and tasting, but for a brief meeting with the Yquem’s young female cellar master, Sandrine Garbay. The group tasted an ’07 Château d’Yquem, which to our travelers was heaven in a glass, but was considered “not ready for consumption” for another 10-15 years! The remarkable day ended with a visit to Smith Haut Lafitte in Martillac, a Grand Cru Classé Château in the Pessac-Léognan appellation. The group was surprised by the sudden appearance of Daniel Cathiard, owner of the property, who took them to his private cellar for a tour and sent them off with a gorgeous coffee table book written by Cathiard’s wife and filled with photographs taken by him. The group then checked into the next B&B, Château Grand Branet, built in the 17th century, renovated in the 19th Century and set in large wooded grounds in the heart of the Entre-deux-Mers hills.

Day 6 featured a tour of Château Grand Branet's Chai (Winery), then on to St. Emilion for a morning spent exploring the medieval city. The afternoon included a visit to Vieux Château Certan in Pomerol and its charming owner Pierre Thienpont, then on to Premier Grand Cru Classé B, Château Angelus (St. Emilion). Each château sang the praises of 2009, which has been described as “the vintage of a generation.”

On Day 7, the tour moved on to the Dordogne Valley and the town of Les Eyzies, where the group lunched at La Grignotière, then visited the cave at Font de Gaume, which contains prehistoric paintings and engravings. Font de Gaume's polychrome drawings are considered the best in the area other than Lascaux, which is now closed to the public. Next stop: La Ferme du Bouyssou in the heart of the Black Périgord, a family owned and operated foie gras farm where the group saw a demonstration of “le gavage” by owner Denis Mazet. This force-feeding technique is used to fatten the geese’s livers for the making of foie gras. The tour ended with a tasting of several different types of foie gras served with a sweet local wine, Monbazillac, which tastes similar to Sauternes and creates a pairing made in foie gras heaven. The group then checked into a charming new B&B, Le Moulin Neuf in Paunat. It is, as hosts Robert and Stuart say on their website “…Bed and Breakfast at its Best.”

The final day of the Bordeaux portion of the trip included a visit to the Saturday Market in Sarlat, a cruise on the Dordogne River in a traditional "gabare," and a tour of the famous medieval Castelnaud on the banks of the Dordogne. The group said a reluctant goodbye to the region with a farewell dinner at Chez Julien, one of the most popular restaurants in Paunat.

Back to Paris on the TGV on day 8, the group explored the Marais in the 3rd Arrondissement and enjoyed a great meal at the popular Chez Janou, which features Provençale cusine and 80 different kinds of pastis.

On Day 9, the group was off to Normandy for a two day tour, which included stops at The Caen Memorial and Museum, the remains of the artificial harbor at Arromanches, the battery at Longues Sur Mer, The American Cemetery at Omaha Beach and Pointe du Hoc, which was attacked by U.S. Rangers during the D-Day invasion. Lodging accommodations at Hotel Bellefontaine in Bayeux made it convenient to stop at Musée de la Tapisserie de Bayeux to view the famous Bayeux Tapestry.

Day 10 included a trip to Mont St. Michel on the North Coast of France with lunch at La Mère Poulard (a restaurant famous for its unique puffy omelets), a tasting and tour at Busnel Calvados Distillery in the Pays d'Auge and a brief stop at Monet's House and Garden at Giverny, which was one of the highlights of the trip. Late spring is an ideal time to visit.

The final day of the tour included sightseeing and museum hopping in Paris, a Farewell Dinner at Le Clou de Paris in The Latin Quarter and a sunset cruise through the “The City of Lights” along the River Seine.

Never a wish better than this…


Lukacs Likes Crossing Vineyards' Chardonnay!

Crossing Vineyards Pennsylvania (United States) Chardonnay 2008 ($18): One of the most impressive East Coast Chardonnays I have ever tried, this wine marries crisp apple and citrus fruit with nutty, spicy, and dare I say, mineral-rich undertones, all of which make the wine seem extremely Burgundian. Very long and evolved on the palate, it represents an outstanding effort from a small, mostly regional winery. (Tasted blind at last month’s International Eastern Wine Competition.) 92 - Paul Lukacs Jun 8, 2010

Crossing Strikes Gold Again at IEWC in The Finger Lakes

The International Eastern Wine Competition, one of the oldest and largest competitions in the United States, is held each May in The Finger Lakes region of New York.

Consumers Can't Get enough of Crossing in Lodi Competition

This past March 15th marked the date of one of the most unique, relevant and extraordinary wine assessment and awards events - ever. The 2010 Consumer Wine Awards took place in Lodi, California, and was open to wines of every region, grape variety, type and style from around the world.

Although this was the first Consumer Wine Awards at Lodi, it was the third year of a series of tasting events designed to refine and improve the wine assessment process. Executed by Diversity Wine Awards LLC, in partnership with the Lodi Tokay Rotary Club, proceeds from the event are used by the Rotary to local and international service projects projects.

This years’ tasting was assessed by 90 selected consumer judges and a team of over 120 local volunteers. It features a new judging methodology and assessment system developed and refined over the past three years in conjunction with Drs. Rie Ishii , Michael O'Mahony and a team of their star sensory science students at University of California, Davis. Tim Hanni, Master of Wine (MW), and his partners (from Diversity Wine Awards, LLC) "Pooch" Pucilowski (Chief Judge at the California State Fair) and Aaron Kidder (Wine Software Specialist) along with David Akin (Winemaker and past President of the Lodi Tokay Rotary Club) are the masterminds behind this landmark event.

The Consumer Wine Awards at Lodi recognizes and celebrates the fact that every person has unique physiological and sensory differences that profoundly affect wine and food preferences. The judges assessing each category of wine will be the very consumers who are most inclined to buy and enjoy the wines of that category. Awards will be given in a variety of formats and you can visit this website to learn more about this exciting facet of our already paradigm-shifting tasting methodology.

"These awards mean alot to us," said vintner Tom Carroll, Jr. "The evaluations have a scientific basis and are conducted by ordinary wine drinkers, not "experts" who have trouble perceiving PA as a legitimate wine region. I trust the opinion of a guy who has to shell out his own hard-earned money to buy a bottle of wine he likes!"

Crossing's business practices have been influenced by the native American proverb “We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children.”
The new building features a high-efficiency geothermal heating and cooling system and is designed to accommodate the future installation of solar panels. It also includes a water recharging well that collects and recycles groundwater instead of allowing erosive runoff.
In addition to the geothermal heating system, Crossing also has installed energy efficient lighting. Timers and sensors also have been installed, so lights are working only when the building is in use, therefore avoiding waste.
The new building will allow Crossing to serve customers better, while conserving natural resources, protecting the environment and reducing the company’s carbon footprint.

Crossing Hosts Private Wine Tour in The Rhône Valley and Provence

As part of its Wine Institute's International Travel Program, Crossing Vineyards sponsored a ten day trip to France, May 13-22, 2008.

The custom, private tour began with a free day to explore Paris and a Welcome Dinner at Chez Clément near The Place de la Bastille. The tour price included 2 nights at Pavillon de la Reine, a four star hotel on the Place des Vosges in the Marais.

The group was transported by High Speed Bullet train (TGV) on day 2 from Gare de Lyon in Paris to Gare Part Dieu in Lyon. After checking into their four star hotel accommodations at Villa Florentine in Old Lyon, our travelers enjoyed a café lunch and a visit to Domaine Gérin in Ampuis (Northern Rhône Valley) for a barrel tasting with its world famous owner and vintner Jean-Michel Gérin. Ampuis is located in the Condrieu appellation, home of some of the world's finest Viogniers.

Day 3 included wine visits at Domaine Mouton Père & Fils and Domaine du Monteillet in Condrieu, where the group tasted memorable Viogniers and Syrahs from Côte Rôtie. Lunch on the banks of The Rhône at Le Beau Rivage in Condrieu featured gourmet local cuisine paired with the finest Viogniers from the Condrieu appellation. The high point of the trip was a private cooking class at Paul Bocuse Institute in Lyon. Our travelers earned certificates of accomplishment under the tutelage of Chef Cyril Bosviel and afterwards enjoyed a world-class, four course meal paired with wine at The Institute’s Saisons Restaurant.

On Day 4, the group was back on the TGV bound for the city of Avignon in The Southern Rhône Valley. A Mercedes minivan whisked the group to its 4-star hotel accommodations at Jules César in the ancient town of Arles.

The group enjoyed a private tour and olive oil tasting at Moulin St. Michel in Mouriès, a small, picturesque village at the foot of Les Alpilles in the heart of the Vallée des Baux.
The afternoon included sightseeing in Arles and dinner at Le Nord Pinus, featuring regional food and wine.

After a quick stop at the famous Saturday Market in Arles on day 5, the group enjoyed a private tasting with owner and vigneron Baptiste Grangeon at Domaine de Cristia in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. A leisurely four course lunch at Le Verger des Papes was followed by a tasting of regional wines in La Cave, then on to another private tasting with owner Martine Meffre at Domaine Saint Gayan in Gigondas.

Day 6 featured a tour of The Lubéron in Provence with stops in Rousillon for wine tasting at
Domaine Chasson. The group enjoyed a leisurely Sunday lunch at La Ferme de la Huppe in Gordes as guests of chef-owner Gerald Konings and his wife, sommelier-conseil, Charlotte.

The group’s final day in Provence began with a tasting of some of the world’s finest dessert wines at Domaine de Durban in Beaumes de Venise. After a gourmet lunch at La Fourchette in Avignon, our travelers enjoyed a private vineyard visit and tasting with owner Gaël Petit-Roudil at Domaine Moulin-la-Viguerie in Tavel. The group enjoyed its farewell dinner with guide, translator and sommelier-conseil John Sherwin at Lou Marquès in the Jules César Hotel.  

Back to Paris on the TGV on day 8, the group enjoyed 2 days of sightseeing and museum hopping in Paris, including a half day tour of the Palace at Versailles. Our travelers ended their memorable trip with a bottle of Côte du Rhône and an evening cruise through the “The City of Lights” along the River Seine.
