Historic Veedercrest, a pioneering Napa Valley winery and participant in the infamous Judgment of Paris, won a Double Gold in the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition for its 2006 St. Helena Cabernet, and won Silver for its 2006 Mt. Veeder Cabernet. Double Gold means that every judge awarded the wine a Gold.

The wines will be available for tasting this coming Saturday afternoon in the VIP Pavilion at the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition tasting, Ft. Mason.

Veedercrest was founded in 1972 after a visit from legendary Andre Tchelicheff. Andre invited himself to dinner after hearing about founder Al Baxter’s good quality amateur wines. Andre rated the wines “excellent,” and recommended “going commercial.” At the Paris tasting, the wines were recognized as the “most French in style.” Veedercrest wines have been served at White House dinners and for a visit of the Pope.

You can reach Veedercrest by phone: 510-459-5115, fax: 510-451-1033, and email.

Meatpaper, a San Francisco-based quarterly journal covering the art and culture of meat, is celebrating the publication of its tenth issue!

In Issue Ten, we continue our omnivorous approach to the topic of meat as we visit a Northern California meat rabbit farm, try pastrami at a New York deli, contemplate roast beef perfume, and consider the history of meat in rock, pop, and punk music.

Subscribe today and get Issue Ten delivered to your doorstep. Or look for it at fine local bookstores, newsstands, and meat purveyors.

And please join us at our issue launch party at Pizzaiolo in Oakland on February 21st.
