San Rafael, Calif.—While North Coast wineries may have found their fermentation and storage capacities strained by the consecutive record harvests of 2012 and 2013, industry experts claim the grape supply is in sync with the region’s overall capacity.

At Criveller California Corp. in Healdsburg, Calif., part-owner and enologist Davide Criveller reports that tank sales to wineries are robust. “Absolutely, this year has been a crazy year with tanks,” he told Wines & Vines.

The company is booked until after harvest with orders for tanks sized from 1,000 to 12,000 gallons, he said. For wineries looking to expand, Criveller estimated he has orders for 160 tanks from more than 25 clients.

Thousands of historical artifacts assembled by antique dealer Jim McCormick will be the heart of the California Wine Museum being planned in downtown Santa Rosa.
Santa Rosa, Calif.—Organizers of the proposed California Wine Museum plan to open next year in the basement (“cellar”) of a former telephone switching building in downtown Santa Rosa.

The heart of the museum will be 4,500 historical artifacts assembled by Jim McCormick, a long-time collector, antique dealer and specialist in wine and viticultural antiquities. It will feature interactive exhibits, wine tasting and pairing with food as well as classes and other events.

The mission of The California Wine Museum is to preserve and exhibit California’s wine heritage, educate visitors about state-of-the-art winemaking plus learn the nuances of wine appreciation.
