I tried their Zin not long ago and loved it. Was thinking about visiting their winery, do they do tastings?

I believe so, but I think you need an appointment.

I’ve tasted at Darioush and Luna, but never at Biale, even though I’ve had their wines on many occasions. They’re on my list the next time I go out to wine country.

I fell in love with the Black Chicken Zin a while ago... Drank that and several other Biale wines back in Mississippi, but I haven't seen any since I moved to CA.

I was looking into it, and their wines are almost impossible to get your hands on. The waiting list to get on their mailing list is a mile long.

I tried their 04 "Royal Punishers" Petite Sirah last night. It was a great wine, but at 16% alcohol, i was quite drunk by the end of the bottle.

I wouldn't complain if i were you Maverick. I have trouble getting a hold of any Biale wine.

I'm not complaining at all, I guess im just a light weight in my old age.

Mmmmm. I just had the bottle of 03 Black Chicken I'd been saving since it's hard to find (as has been pointed out). So damn good I wrote a post about it on my blog.

Farley, i was incredibly jealous before i read your post. After reading it, which is great by the way, my feelings are confirmed...

Thanks, diamondgirl. Like I said, it's bittersweet cause now I'm sad it's gone.

Black Chicken is a great wine, and the story behind it is really interesting. During Prohibition, the Biales sold jugs of homemade wine under the codename "black chicken." Aldo's Vineyard is also a must-try as well as their Alexander Valley Petite Sirah.

Ben, I'm with you on the Petite Syrah. Had it a couple of years ago and loved it. I also have the Zappa blend, which I'm holding on to, but not for much longer.

Biale does tastings by appt. and you can go to their websight and get on the mailing list. Sometimes, it is hard to get. Go to the Websight
