          The NGRC Space Park Enology Club was founded in 1974 by a group of dedicated wine lovers.
               Since that time, the Club has met regularly to taste, evaluate, and discuss fine wines.

Housekeeping
We have a new membership chair, Kim Nesbitt. So, if you change your email address, please send an updated
address to kim.nesbitt@ngc.com.

Hint: As soon as you receive a flyer for an event, send an email to the person taking reservations (see the flyer
for information). That will hold a spot until you can get your check to us. We ask that it show up within a
week.

We have now merged in to the Northrop Grumman Recreation Club (NGRC) from the Space Park Site Council
(SPSC), so now we are the NGRC Space Park Enology club. In the future, checks are to be made out to the
“Enology Club.”

The 2011 Enology Club Board has been selected!

The board has played a little bit of musical chairs, some have “retired,” we have some new faces. New board
member, Kim Nesbitt, is taking over as the membership chair – you may have noticed that she sent this
newsletter to you. Her husband, CJ Nesbitt, has joined the board as the internal (to NG) webmaster. Mike
Bilinski has joined us as our new photographer; he will also be creating the photo collages, a job previously
done by the newsletter editor. See his terrific work below. If you’d like a softcopy of any of the pictures,
contact him at michael.images@yahoo.com. Joyce and Jared Stout are taking over as newsletter editors starting
next month (thank you!) – Barb Wolford is still providing the content (thank you too!).

We also have two new board positions this year, Membership Outreach, headed by Stephanie Herczog and
“floater,” Bruce Barwick. Stephanie will be reaching out to the younger/newer wine tasters, hosting
introductory wine tastings in a more casual atmosphere. She’ll be bringing in the next generation of wine
lovers! Bruce will be filling a desperately needed function as “floater.” Many of the board positions make it
difficult to take time off, now we have Bruce to step in and save us!

We say goodbye to our board members Jim Belt, Ron Polidan and Jayne Lange. They have gone back to being
“regular” members. Thanks to them for all their hard work and we look forward to seeing them at future
tastings.

                                    Friday, January 14th, 2011, 7:30pm
                                    At the El Segundo DoubleTree Hotel
“Pinot Days” has been organizing Pinot Noir events in San Francisco and Chicago for many
years. Our January event will help kickoff the second “Pinot Days Southern California”
weekend. Several winemakers will join us, each representing one of California’s top Pinot Noir

winemakers, hear their stories, and immerse yourself in noble grapes from their highly acclaimed
2007/8 vintage!
For more information on Pinot Days, visit: http://www.pinotdays.com/
This event will examine the influences of terroir and climate on wine by comparing each region’s
Pinot Noir side-by-side. For the first flight, each winery will provide a regional wine. Our second and third flights will
focus on single vineyard wines from each region. This tasting event will also include a wine glass specifically crafted for
Pinot Noir - which you can take home with you. Meet our winemakers:
                         La Follette Wines handcraft small lots of Pinot Noir from Sonoma Mountains and Mendocino
                           Ridge area. Greg La Follette favors cool vineyard sites that yield a maximum expression of
                           terroir.
                         Thomas Fogarty Winery is a 325 acre winery in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Winemaker
                           Thomas Fogarty produces small lots and has been perfecting his fermenting skills for more than
                           30 years.
                         Hitching Post Wines makes elegant, refined wines from the finest Santa Barbara County
                           vineyards. Hartley Ostini HP winemaker wines were featured in the hit movie “Sideways” and
                           the rest was history… Just plain great tasting Pinot Noir wines.
To get a taste of hand-crafted “artisan” Pinot Noir from California’s top regions, join us on January 14th at 7:30pm at the
new venue El Segundo DoubleTree Hotel, 1985 East Grand Ave., East of N. Sepulveda Blvd, between El Segundo

Funny and Famous Wine Quotes and Toasts
Great Writers Have Paid Homage to Wines Throughout History

Wine, the nectar of the Gods - the inspiration of the muse - the fruit of the vine. All of those and more have
been said about wine as it has been romanticized in prose, uttered in jest or memorialized in the pages of
history. Robert Louis Stevenson wrote, “Wine is bottled poetry,” while Dom Pérignon said “Come quickly. I
am tasting the stars.” Both were trying to put into words the very nature and essence of the premium crushed
elixir of the wine grape.

Quotes, Idioms, and Sayings About Wine

From the dawn of time, wine created a sensual experience. When a glass of wine was poured the senses were
engaged -- the sound of the popped cork, the splash made in the glass, the smell of nature, the hues from golden
to ruby, and the tickle and weight of the wine on the tongue all added to the imagery of the mind as these senses
found their way to paper. It was said, "In water one sees one's own face, but in wine one beholds the heart of
another.” No other drink has inspired so many poets and writers!

The skill of master winemaker created the essence of wine, but the journey of wine was chronicled by the
thousands of quotes and saying penned or uttered by history's most notable characters. Quotes, quips, idioms,
and sayings were passed down from Jesus, Homer, Plato, Shakespeare, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson,
Mark Twain, Wm. Butler Yeats, Virginia Wolfe, W.C. Fields, Erma Bombeck, and a host of others.

Many quotes relating to wine have been attributed to Anonymous, French and Chinese Proverb, and Irish Toast.
These writers are more often quoted than some of the world's most prolific literary greats. Unfortunately, many


http://web.st.northgrum.com/enology/                                               http://www.SPEnology.org/
sayings appear to have been muddled versions from prior times and authors. Sayings are also attributed to
several authors or historic icons, leading to duplications and mis-quoted versions.

Such is the case of this quote, “One of the disadvantages of wine is that it makes a man mistake words for
thoughts," originally made by Dr. Samuel Johnson. Reference credit is sometimes given to James Boswell, as it
was written in Boswell’s book The Life of Samuel Johnson, yet Johnson himself previously wrote it. When
curious about quotes checking with Bartlett’s Familiar Quotations, it has been a definitive resource for quotes
for more than one hundred years.

While Bartlett’s Quotations has quotes from history's greats, it doesn't address some of today's notable
unattributed witticisms that often come out while drinking wine such as:

      Due to the heavy wine fog all further thoughts have been temporarily suspended
      Wine improves with age, the older I get the better I like it
      Like a fine wine I'm not getting older, I'm becoming more complex
      I only drink on days ending in "y"

Many of the above quotes are referenced in the book: Wine and Sweet Words, a collection of quotes, sayings
and toasts.

Toasts

When toasts are needed, famous authors and those “ Proverb” and anonymous people are often referenced. The
Irish seem to have been very prolific quoters and toasters, at least based upon the amount of credit given to Irish
Proverbs. You would expect these quotes and toasts to pay less homage to wine or drink and more to the
occasion, however, the wine drinker will find that quotes were inspired by the essence of the grape's nectar as
much as the person that was being regarded with a toast.

"Here's to friendship, the wine of life, let's drink of it and to it," does justice to the wine and the person being
toasted. Others that have been frequently quoted include:

      May our wine brighten the mind and strengthen the resolution
      May we always have old wines, old friends and young cares
      Pour deep the rosy wine and drink a toast with me; Here's to three: wine, thee and camaraderie

There are thousand of quotes to be found and read in both old and modern literature. To borrow a quote from
Samuel Butler, “Letters are like wine; if they are sound they ripen with keeping. A man should lay down letters
as he does a cellar of wine.” It is obvious that many have taken this to heart and committed the essence of wine
to paper for the wine drinker’s enjoyment. Cheers!

What is the Oldest Wine Discovery?

This is a little tricky as several locations can claim this title, depending on the definition of wine and whether
the criteria of actual liquid or residue is used. Any of the following are accurate for wine trivia.

      The oldest traces of a wine-like substance were discovered in China. The pottery jars and the rice, fruit
       and honey mixture residue inside the jars date this find to over 9000 years ago. The drink that was
       contained in these jars is not what wine would be considered today, but a combination closer to a wine
       mead drink.
      In the area that is now Iran, wine jugs were discovered that dated from around 7000 years ago. These
       jars contained a residue that was closer to the foundation of larger grape concentrations used in modern
       wine.
      While older wine residue has been found, the actual oldest bottles found intact and with wine still in one
       of the bottles was found in two Roman stone sarcophagi in Germany. Scientists have dated the wine to
       325AD. The bottle is on display in Speyer, Germany.

Wine Origins

For those would be oenophiles that believe wine came from Europe, that would be false, not fact. Wine didn't
make the way to French and English soil until thousands of years after its birth, as the discovery of wine bottles
and jugs prove.


      Middle Eastern areas now known as Iran, Israel and Georgia are the earliest origins of modern day wine.
       It wasn't until 1500 years later that the Greek's culture expanded and brought wine with the growing
       civilization.
      The Romans began the documentation of winemaking and spread the basis of modern day winemaking.
       Bottles have been found along with the classification of grapes and wines.

Other Fun Facts

      There are more than 10,000 grape varieties used in wines around the world.
      A wine must contain 75% of the main grape to avoid being labeled as a blended wine.
      Egyptians used pine tar, oil and rags to seal wine bottles thousands of years ago before the use of cork.
      Wine grapes are the world's largest fruit crop based upon the number of acres planted.
      Lead poison was a common cause of death in ancient Rome due to the use of lead in wine to help
       preserve the wine.
      Old world wines from Europe use the wine's region to denote the wine's name such a Bordeaux while
       new world wines use the grape's name such as Pinot Noir.
      Wine quotes have been around almost as long as wine. Written records have quotes dating back more
       2500 years.
      Finally, the most important fact is that the best wine in the world is the one you are drinking now!



Wine Sulfites

This term covers the use of sulfur-based preservatives, sodium and potassium metabisulphite, as well as sulfites
and sulfur dioxide gas. These are all closely related or derived compounds of such. Sulfur is a very common
element naturally occurring in foods, nature, and the human body.

Sulfites are used as a preservative and antioxidant in various food products and in wine as well. For the
winemaker it is extremely important as it inhibits both oxidation and the growth of infections. In the low
concentrations used, it is non-toxic to humans.

Oxidation
Oxidation is among the greatest problems the winemaker deals with. In every day life, when you cut an apple
and leave it out, it quickly turns brown due to oxidation. Oxygen helps break the complex sugars and other
chemicals down into smaller component parts. Once the skin of a fruit is punctured, oxygen gets in easily and
starts breaking the area surrounding the puncture to the noticeable brown color. It is in this same manner that
sulfites are used to preserve the fruity flavor and freshness in wine.

Infections
For the winemaker preparing the must, it is very effective in killing or inhibiting all unwanted bacteria prior to
the point when the alcohol production commences. Then, the sterilizing agents in alcohol assist it in the fight
against bacteria. Campden tablets are a common sterilizing agent and anti-oxidant (containing approximately
60% sulfur dioxide) used to kill unwanted bacteria in wine. Sulfite is also a popular sterilization substance as
winemakers often use a sulfite solution (Sodium metabisulphite) to wash their equipment. One of the main
reasons that it is such a great sterilizing agent in winemaking is due to its effectiveness against all known
infections in wine.

Measuring
So how do you measure the level in your wine? Sulfite measuring kits are available for purchase. They are
perfect for a home winemaker and make it very easy to measure the amount of sulfites in your wine.

Declaration of Sulfites
The government put a “Declaration of Sulfites” requirement on wines bottled after July 9th 1987. FDA requires
food and beverage manufacturers to disclose the presence of sulfite agents in concentrations of at least 10 parts
per million. This declaration must be on one of the labels on each bottle. Since sulfur naturally occurs in fruits
and grapes and is a byproduct of yeast fermentation, all wines have sulfite. As such, you see this declaration on
your wine bottles.

                2010 Holiday Dinner at the Tin Roof Bistro in Manhattan Beach

On Saturday evening at 7:00, our group was greeted with a glass of Zonin Prosecco as we walked into the
banquet room at the Tin Roof. The wine was crisp and refreshing and paired well with the passed hors
d’oeuvres of Wild Mushroom Pizzettes and spicy Tuna Spring Rolls. The volume increased as food was passed
around and a second glass of Schramsberg Blanc de Blancs was poured. Everyone was having a good time
greeting friends (old and new) and getting situated for an evening of food and wine.

In fact we were having so much fun that it was difficult to get everyone seated so we could start the evening off
with a brief speech by our president, Gregg Jackson who announced the 2011 board members. Once he
finished, the servers were quick to get out our first course: Jumbo Lumped Crab Cakes with Arugula and Aioyo
paired with Frank Family Chardonnay. Once again, an excellent pairing of food and wine. The wine was not
too oaky and complimented our crab cakes. We did have a few people on special diets who received different
plates, each well pleased with their substitutions.

We had our choice of 3 entrees, each paired with its own wine selection. The first entrée was the wine braised
shortribs – delicious fall-off-the-bone short ribs balanced with soothing carbohydrates and a delicious soft
Hunnicut cab. The second choice was a Woodfired Roasted Jidori Chicken – crisp skin enveloped a moist
chicken entry paired with an excellent Gargiulo Sangiovese. Our last choice was organic Chinook Salmon
served on a bed of wild rice paired with Tyler Pinot Noir. The wine had a cherry nose pairing well with the
sauce and rice. While I didn’t get a taste of every dish, everyone at my table appeared to enjoy each of their
meals. I would like to thank Marty Flannery for providing each of the tables with an extra bottle of wine.
Marty has always been a generous supporter of our club.

Dessert was served family-style so everyone could have a taste of everything. The women kept pace with the
men over a large slice of apple tart, mustard seed cheddar and drunken pears. Apple Tart Tatin was passed
with a jug of crème fraiche, the crust was light and the apples well toasted, the crème added just the right flavor.
The red wine poached pears were dark red and had a slight spicy undertone followed by a selection of cheeses
all complimented the Fonseca Bin 27 Port.

Between courses, everyone was welcome to get their photo taken in front of the Christmas tree in the front of
the room. As spectacular as everyone was dressed, I am sure several of these will find themselves framed in
individual’s living rooms or dens. Thanks to Mike Bilinski, the new club photographer, for providing this
luxury. The restaurant’s service was excellent and our group did not want for anything. A great place to hold a
party or just drop in for a bite before or after shopping in the mall, Tin Roof provided our club with an evening
to remember.

Thanks to all that attended, Carol Underwood
