State of the Union: The California Wine Industry with Cory Beck of Francis Ford Coppola Winery
I recently had the opportunity to sit down with Francis Ford Coppola winemaker, Corey Beck, to chat about all things California. Beck has a richer history with California wine than most. As the grandson of a former Chateau Montelena vineyard manager, Beck has been tending to vines since the early 1970s! In addition to giving a recap of the 2009 vintage in Northern California, he provides us with some early insight into the 2010 vintage, which emerging California appellation we should watch for, and explains why Malbec is not only for Argentina anymore.

California fire officials say weather conditions have improved and that authorities hope to begin containing a big wildfire in Sonoma County's wine country by nightfall.Fire personnel on the ground and planes in the air are fighting the blaze.The Sonoma County fire broke out late Wednesday and exploded to more than 15 square miles (39 square kilometers) due to extremely windy and dry weather affecting the state. California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection makes a statement on the current situation.
The fire turned out to be fueled by what we believed to be about 60 mile per hour winds plus or minus and the terrain up there in that area is very rugged. Throughout the night, the fire continued to push, wind driven, down toward the community of Geyserville, in that general area, pushed down and surfaced in the Geyserville area sometime around 5 – 5:30 o'clock this morning.
The fire is currently staffed by about 500 personnel from numerous agencies from the northern half of the state. We have approximately eight air tankers assigned and the VLAT is on its way now, the Very Large Air Tanker is on it's way now.

Rosso & Bianco: When You Can Have Anything
Rosso & Bianco wines are an extension of the generations-long Coppola tradition of winemaking, crafted in the same spirit perfected by Francis’s grandfather, Agostino Coppola in the 1920’s – they are wines for everyday life.
Over the years, even when one can afford more pricey wines - when you can have anything - the favorite is often Rosso & Bianco.

Reports say at least three people have died, with homes destroyed and buildings razed around Tijuana, Mexico's Californian Peninsula. Two died in Tecate and one in Rosarita in what authorities were calling wind-related fires, the San Diego Union Tribune reports. Tonight, firefighters are racing against time battle to contain wildfires in California amid fears forecast winds will whip up the infernos that have been burning for days in the US state. Thousands of firefighters are defending counties from the infernos that at one point encroached on densely-populated suburban Los Angeles. The blazes have ripped through the US sunshine state's major southern city and counties that span its wine country region since Thursday. Around 50,000 people near California's famed Sonoma county wine country were ordered to evacuate yesterday amid fears winds forecast to rip through the area would spread the flames according to Reuters. By Saturday afternoon local time, firefighters were cutting defensive lines against the wildfire threatening the area. The 25,000-acre Kincade Fire in rugged and steep terrain north of San Francisco was one of two major wildfires burning in California today, local time. A second inferno, the Tick Fire, has been raging in suburban Los Angeles where it has charred 4,600 acres. The more than 2,000 firefighters battling the Kincade Fire, which officials said was 10 per cent contained by Saturday afternoon, and had destroyed nearly 50 structures, faced a more immediate threat of escalation from weather than crews battling the Tick Fire. The state's authorities had yesterday declared a state of emergency in counties affected by two wildfires burning on Friday. The threat posed by the blaze saw a major electric and gas supplier warn nearly one million Californian households can expect protective blackouts over the weekend. Pacific Gas and Electrical (PG & E), which was deemed responsible for causing the state's most destructive ever wildfire in 2018 - the 'Camp' fire - warning households should brace for their power to be shut off this weekend in affected counties. The National Weather Service has issued a red flag warning for areas around the Kincade Fire tonight. Low-humidity conditions have dried outplants and trees and left the flames with plenty ofcombustible fuel. And conditions were only expected to worsen. Winds picking up on Saturday afternoon are forecast to reach peak intensity late at night into early Sunday. The forecast warns of sustained speeds of up to 55 miles per hour (90 kph) and gusts of 8
