Dear Reader,

We have just added another interview to the Vineyard Views section.  Become a Basic Member (see below for details) and read all about Linda and Earl Ault, owners of Cedar Mountain Winery in Livermore, CA.  A fascinating interview of how they met in college (both Physics majors) in Southern California, and how, many years later, they followed their instincts and bought a vineyard.  They started to make wine and a new life style was born.  Their home and winery are on the same property which they share with their 3 cats.  Check out the recipes we have put together to go with their wines.  We have a roasted red pepper soup (served either hot or cold) to go with their Pinot Noir Rose.  And for dessert a carrot cake to go with their Chardonnay del Sol. is a website dedicated to help you learn more about wine:  how each wine region is unique, the art and science of wine making, some FAQ's on wine etiquette, and recipes that go great with different wines.

Our website features:
Ask the Winemaker column in which our dedicated consultant answers your questions.
Vineyard Views article where we interview wine industry personalities.
Wine Region area information from wineries and lodging to restaurants and spas.
Food and Wine Pairing
Travel Planning Services where you tell us what you want to see and do on your next wine region getaway, and we will plan it for you.
Blog to write about your wine experiences or read what others wine lovers have to say.

To see all our features, recipes and the basic wine region information become a Basic Member..  It's FREE.  If you want more detail about all the wineries, lodging, restaurants etc. and other perks, then you should become a Julius Caesar Club Member.  (We are having a Launch Special: if you become a Julius Caesar Club Charter Member by September 30, 2008 you will not only receive one FREE 3-day personalized itinerary and a wine tote bag, but you will also receive a wine/beverage opener.)

If you want to be part of helping a new website get off the ground it's easy!  All you have to do is to forward this newsletter along to as many of your friends and family who you think would enjoy learning more about wine and the experiences that traveling in the different wine regions offer.  We would greatly appreciate it.

We will send you periodic newsletters to update you and keep you informed with our most recent adventures and snippets of what's going on in the wine world.
