About The Wine Appreciation Guild

The Wine Appreciation Guild is commited to promoting wine education, and the appreciation of wine and it's healthful benefits. As the knowledge of wine is spread, the core group of wine drinkers increases. It is this continuing commitment that assures the growth of the industry.

The Wine Appreciation Guild is now in its 27th year as America's premier provider of wine education, wine accessories and wine storage. When we began in 1973. there were only a handful of premium California wineries. Many big name wineries of taday were in the planning stages, or had barely been established. At that time, the California Wine Advisory Board, operating under the State Department of Agriculture, was the primary provider of wine items and literature to aid in the enjoyment of wine. However, a decree by the Governer of California in 1973 dissolved the Wine Advisory Board.

The Wine Appreciation Guild was formed as the official successor in the distribution of wine accessories, and the publication and distribution of books and educational materials. This carries on a tradition of service that started in 1939. As the oldest company and the most trusted business in this sphere of the wine industry, we hope you will continue to count on us for the finest wine accessories and educational products, with the best pricing and service.

Dear Wine Friends:

  We considered over a dozen Sonoma wineries for this honor and selected Petroni Vineyards due to their special terroir, organic farming methods, and legendary winemaking techniques which result in unique and distinctive award-winning premium wines.    This is your invitation to stop by (any day except Wednesday) from 11:00AM to 6:00 PM for this special wine experience.  Petroni’s lineup includes: 2010 Chardonnay, 2012 Rosato, 2011 Pinot Noir, 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon, 2008 Syrah, 2008 Rosso, and the flagship Brunello di Sonoma 2007 . Janice, Jasmine and Jimmy are more than happy to answer any wine related questions you might have and would love to serve you! Be sure to ask about the wine club.

 Browse the vast selection of wine racks, ready built or in kit form for easy assembly.  Examine the ready-to-go, temperature controlled  wine cellars from France and many custom built models to be finished in any kind of wood or style to match your décor.   There are no other wine accessory stores in America like WINE HARDWARE.  Now with the addition of Petroni Vineyards, WINE HARDWARE in Sonoma is a special wine lover’s experience featuring a family-owned, small case production winery.

Just bring this letter in and you will receive a free copy of our acclaimed SONOMA WINE TOUR book.  The award winning tour book showcases everything wine and food in Sonoma County and with no advertising, all recommendations have been made solely on merit.   $12.95 value.

Stain Rx --The BEST Stain remover
15 October, 2013


Stain Rx represents a completely different chemistry

compared to other stain removers on the market. Stain Rx does not contain harsh oxidizing agents such as peroxide or chlorine bleach, which may adversely affect fabric. It is generally safe on all washable fabrics EXCEPT rayon and acetate. Test for colorfastness on all dyed fabrics, especially silk and wool, before treating stains.  Stain Rx may also be used on all stainless steel surfaces, plastic and glassware. Many variables affect stain removal including the age, type of stain and fabric quality.

Stain Rx,as Erado-Sol, has been used in the medical and industrial fields for more than 50 years prior to being offered for household use. It has a very long and successful track record, and we expect that you will be equally satisfied.

Wine Marketing Online

How to use the newest tools of marketing

to boost profits and build brands

Brue McGechan

If it seems like small wine businesses are getting crowded out of a vibrant US wine market by retail chains, entrenched distributors, and established brands, there’s good news for them. There’s a reason why these massive companies spend a fortune acting “small.” In the new, wired realm of marketing and customer relations, the qualities that make small businesses distinctive, like personalized service, deep product knowledge and authentic interest, matter more than ever.

Wine marketing consultant Bruce McGechan answers the question of how to put those built-in attributes in front of all those online customers with his new book Wine Marketing Online.

  • Discover the secrets that successful wine businesses use to market their wines online.
  • Learn how to increase your credibility and be seen as an expert by your local customers.
  • Generate Traffic to your website using Google.
  • Convert that traffic into sales through fine-tuned content and a positive user shopping experience.
  • Utilize social media to effectively engage with new and existing customers on your blog, Facebook, and Twitter.
  • Ride the coming wave of mobile websites, apps, advertising and location based services like Foursquare and Yelp.
  • Analyze your wine eCommerce software options.
  • ‘Finally’ turn one-off orders into repeat loyal customers.
  • and last but not least share your enthusiasm for wine and really enjoy your business.

 

Wine Marketing Online includes a winery internet marketing and brand plan, wine store internet marketing plan, wine store financial model and wine competitor and customer research.

 

Bruce McGechan has consulted wine businesses large and small, from one edge of the world to the other. He is the founder and managing director of WineMarketingPros.com, an internet wine marketing advisory firm based in New Zealand.

Terroir: The Role of Geology, Climate, and Culture in the Making of French Wines by James E. Wilson
29 May, 2013


James Wilson’s classic book Terroir:The Role of Geology, Climate, and Culture in the Making of FrenchWinesstill considered to be the most detailed examination of the phenomenon.

 

The French word terroir is used to describe all the ecological factors that make a particular type of wine special to the region of its origin. James E. Wilson uses his training as a geologist and his years of research in the wine regions of France to fully examine the concept of terroir. The result combines natural and social history, and scientific study, making this a unique book that all wine connoisseurs and professionals will want close at hand. With a wealth of information explained in clear English, Wilson's book enables wine readers to understand and appreciate the mystique of terroir.

Vineyard Fresh Protects Your Wine
07 March, 2013


 

Simply spray 2 quick burstsof VineyardFresh into a leftover bottle of wine, and VineyardFresh will create a protective barrier between the air and the remaining wine left in the bottle, preventing the process of oxidation. VineyardFresh will naturally keep your wine fresh for weeks without affecting the taste, aroma or character of the wine.

VineyardFresh works through a simple combination of chemistry and physics. Don't worry, it's not too hard to understand!

 

 

Chemistry

 

Nitrogen and OxygenVS. Argon

 

VinnyBulletPoint Argon is an inert gas and will not interact with wine. Argon is non-metallic, colorless, odorless, tasteless.

 

VinnyBulletPoint

 

 Argon is naturally found in the air we breathe

 

VinnyBulletPoint

 

 With an atomic mass of 39.948 g/mol, Argon is heavier than air, which has an atomic mass of 28.97g/mol (the majority of air consists of diatomic Nitrogen and diatomic Oxygen)

 

Physics

Heavier Than Air     Bottlewithlayers

 

VinnyBulletPoint The heavier gas will displace the lighter gas, laying a protective blanket on top of the wine.

 

VinnyBulletPoint Argon settles below the oxygen in the bottle and creates a harmless barrier between the wine and the oxygen, preventing the oxygen from spoiling the wine.

Gearhead Corkscrew- A Statement of Sophistication For Your Wine Brand
20 February, 2013


Every few years there is a significant technical advancement in corkscrews which facilitates the ease, efficiency and reliability of removing the cork. Having been in this industry for over 35 years, we at The Wine Appreciation Guild have seen them all.

25 years ago it was the Screwpull, invented by Bill Allen of Texas. 15 years ago the Puig family of Spain revolutionized the waiter's corkscrew with the two-step boot on the Pulltap.

Today, we are proud to introduce the next evolution in corkscrew technology, the 
Gearhead corkscrew, created by Hans Gomberg in Germany.

The Modular

The Modular unit has come from the experiences By The Glass International has gained worldwide in the last seven years. The main difference with the modular and the standard models is the ability to start small, both in terms of space andinvestment. One unit contains a temperature zone for 2 bottles and is easily expandable to however many wines the user wants to serve by the glass. That's what we call modularity!

The Modular was developed from the following list of requirements;
  • to be compact as possible

  • excellent quality, professional appearance and suitable for any interior
  • can be fully incorporated into a wall or cabinet (ventilation at the front)

  3. Presentation; by using the By The Glass® Modular, the inserted bottles are always presented in an elegant and hygienic way
  4. Serving; with portion control (3 different doses), you always serve the desired pre-set amount of wine
  5. Easily expandable by linking multiple units by using only one plug (up to 6 units)
  6. Anti-theft; doors can be locked to avoid access and serving keys can be locked electronically
  7. Tubes which guide the wine are easy to change, and provide optimum hygiene conditions
  8. Silicone corks fit all types of bottles
  9. The inner LED lighting is dimmable in two positions
  10. Also available with external watercooling (ask your local distributor for specifications)

The Best Wine Stain Remover
09 January, 2013


Stain Rx represents a completely different chemistry compared to other stain removers on the market. Stain Rx does not contain harsh oxidizing agents such as peroxide or chlorine bleach, which may adversely affect fabric. It is generally safe on all washable fabrics EXCEPT rayon and acetate. Test for colorfastness on all dyed fabrics, especially silk and wool, before treating stains.  Stain Rx may also be used on all stainless steel surfaces, plastic and glassware. Many variables affect stain removal including the age, type of stain and fabric quality.

Stain Rx,as Erado-Sol, has been used in the medical and industrial fields for more than 50 years prior to being offered for household use. It has a very long and successful track record, and we expect that you will be equally satisfied.

NO STAIN REMOVING PRODUCT REMOVES ALL STAINS.

REMOVES THE FOLLOWING: 

  • Red, Rosé and White Wine Stains
  • Beer Stains
  • Berries, Most fruits and vegetables including beets
  • Perspiration stains
  • Most fresh hair dye stains

STAIN REMVER ALSO REMOVES:

WINE RESCUE
19 October, 2012


Wine preservation and wine improvement products are a rapidly growing  category.  From the old vacume pumps, to canned Argon and a bevy of wine aerators,  wine consumers now want to improve their wine or preserve it.  A VERY EXCITING NEW PRODUCT IN THIS CATEGORY, does both. WINE RESCUE is made up of natural ingredients, commonly used in winemaking, now packaged in a small consumer friendly bottle.  Just a few drops in an opened bottle of wine retards  oxidation and removes the bitter components of oxidized wine.  We are very impressed with the results in white wines that have been open for up to a week.   This is a great product for wine bars and restaurants that want to refresh those bottles of wine they opened yesterday or earlier.

AMPELOGRAFIA Book set
20 March, 2012


Ampelography is the science of identifying, naming and classifying grape varieties through detailed analysis of the unique characteristics of the plant, its morphology and the different phases of its development.

At the same time, the vine has its own extraordinary aesthetic and iconographic appeal. The exceptional convergence of the Authors’ scientific contributions and the dazzling splendour of the chromolithographs is thus what makes the three volumes of this Illustrated Historical Universal Ampelography so unique.

This is the first time that a single work has united the most beautiful collections of ampelographic plates: the Ampelographie - Traité général de viticulture by Pierre Viala and Victor Vermorel (1901-10), Giorgio Gallesio’s Pomona Italiana (published between 1817 and 1839) and Ampelografia Italiana, published in 1882 by the Ampelographic Committee of the Ministry of Agriculture. The work illustrates 551 cultivars, complete with entries describing each one and listing its synony

VIEW FROM THE VINEYARD By Clifford P. Ohmart
16 February, 2012


Author and entomologist Clifford P. Ohmart brings reason and clarity to the politically loaded and amorphously defined popular world of sustainable viticulture with this unique and comprehensive examination of the subject.

"View from the Vineyard" does much more than explain what sustainable means. It also provides the farmer with a realistic and achievable path to a sustainable vineyard by describing:

• The challenges of practicing sustainable winegrowing

• Where does Integrated Pest Management fit in?

• How are organic and sustainable farming related?

• A holistic vision for the farm

• How to identify and define your farm’s resources

… and more!

The book concludes with a self-assessment guide in which growers can easily track their progress through these transitional periods. For more information, contact The Wine Appreciate Guild at 650-866-3020 x22 or bryan@wineappreciation.com

UNDERSTANDING WINE TECHNOLOGY 3rd Edition NOW AT WINE APPRECIATION GUILD
06 June, 2011


Understanding Wine Technology 3rd Edition

David Bird

Foreword by Hugh Johnson

 ISBN: 9781934259603

Any student who’s ever logged credits in a viticulture and enology class knows Bird’s book. It’s the most widely assigned wine-science primer in the English speaking world. This completely revised and updated edition to Bird’s classic textbook deciphers all the new scientific advances that have cropped up in the last several years, and conveys them in his typically clear and plainspoken style that renders even the densest subject matter freshman-friendly.

 New material includes: expanded section on the production of red, rosé, white, sweet, sparkling and fortified wines; information on histamine, flash detente, maceration, whole bunch and whole berry fermentation; expanded chapter on wine faults, including Brettanomyces; new section on HACCP analysis as applied to a winery; and much more.

Paperback, 6 x 8 inches, 328pp., full-color illustrations and charts, fully indexed. $49.95

A MUST READ BOOK----WINE FULTS CAUSES, EFFECTS, CURES
08 March, 2011


 

A precise and comprehensive description of the
problems encountered at times by all winemakers
and wine judges, Wine Faults covers the differences
between flaws and faults, how flavors
develop, how taste works and how it differs from
smell in the evaluation of wine. From there it
tackles the increasing problems resulting from
high alcohol wines as well as volatile acidity
found in high pH wines common in some warm
grape-growing regions. It also deals with the
vegetal qualities of cool viticultural regions
usually caused by methoxypyrazines and the occasional
lady beetle. Every microbial infection
found in today's wineries is fully described and arrayed in full color slides.
Dense as the material may seem, the book is written in a manner that the
layperson, or even the quality control professional who forgot that he ever took
Organic Chemistry, can understand.
Paperback, 8-1/2 x 11 inches, 96 pp., full-color illustrations, fully indexed.
