Beverage Publication Mutineer Magazine announces partnership with innovative online wine reservation system, CellarPass, to promote Calaveras wineries.
12.02.2010 – The Mutineers are at it again! Mutineer Magazine Editor in Chief Alan Kropf has been vigorously working to create buzz about Calaveras County since he made Murphys the Mutineer Magazine HQ in late September of this year. Mutineer Magazine has not only launched a marketing campaign with the Calaveras Visitors Bureau which includes several wineries, restaurants, lodging properties, and outdoor recreation venues; but they have just recently entered into an exclusive partnership with CellarPass on behalf of promoting Calaveras wine and tourism.

It would seem that food trucks and vendors have begun taking over downtown Napa and I for one am very excited. Why am I excited, you may ask? I’m excited because three of these trucks will be parking at Jacuzzi Family Vineyards on December 11th for the Mutineer Magazine Holiday Comedy Festival. Okay, so its one truck, an Airstream and a mobile barbecue trailer, but the idea is the same.
Dim Sum Charlie’s will be joining us at the Comedy Festival. Normally found just past the train tracks, off of First Street in Napa, Dim Sum Charlie’s is owned by Andrew Siegal and chef Clayton Lewis. They serve up delicious dim sum from pork sui mai dumplings to sticky rice wrapped in lotus leaves stuffed with pork sausage, chicken and scallops. I know I can’t wait to try out some of these dumplings paired with an ale from Lagunitas or crisp Vernaccia wine from Jacuzzi, both of which will be offered at the tasting during the festival.

Michael Kobayashi can’t keep away from the flame. One would think, after ten successful years as a music manager, that he’d evaluate the chaos of combining that life with the frenetic existence of a restaurateur, and just let it go. But Michael and his chef-brother, Chris, just celebrated the fourth anniversary of their restaurant, Artisan, and there seems to be no sign that Michael’s day after day commitment to both of those worlds is in any sort of decline.

Definition of silver-tongued: a person who is able to clearly and effectively express themselves, or who has a clever way with words. While at once it is admission of sophistication, it is in some cases an accusation of deceptiveness.
I wanted to make sure I clearly defined that term before I moved on any further. I am referring to the latter bit of the definition.
I’m currently working on a blog article for my own blog, over at Rantings, but I thought that this little piece of the pie deserves even more attention due to its level of deceptiveness.
What I’m talking about is thujone and how some of the less scrupulous absinthe brand representatives spin the info to make it seem like it plays an important role in the consumption of absinthe.
For those of you who have not yet read my previous blog post about the authenticity of absinthe that is available in the U.S., let’s just say that thujone really plays no part at all. Reports of its significance and/or its effects are highly exaggerated, and have been proven incorrect by recent scientific studies. See the full post »
As you read on our last blog entry, we recently tried out a NewAir AW-210ED 21 bottle dual temperature zone wine cooler and we were so pleased with it that we wanted to give one away to one of you out there that supports Mutineer. Instead of the NewAir AW-210ED, we will be giving away the newer and more expensive NewAir AW-211ED, valued at $280.00. See the full post »
