PAGE 14 -- WEDNESDAY, MAY 4, 2011 ~ CLOVERDALE REVEILLE • CLOVERDALE, CALIFORNIA The Horseless Carriage Club of America's Western Gaslight Tour featured Cloverdale as a stopping point for lunch at the Historic Owl Cafe on April 20. Over 67 people and 34 one and two cylinder cars from all over the west coast were involved in the tour. This beautiful 1905REO drew a lot of attention and so did the driving apparel. Pictured are owner, Steve Weber, Jan Hills and Bob and Nancy UIIrich, all from Oregon. Alan Furber, Jr., left, Ron Siegemund, and Bill Lambert at April's Chamber Mixer. It was hosted by Pamela Mandela at her Cloverdale KOA camping resort located in the hills east of downtown. It is a great place to bring the kids or grandkids for a "staycation." Veronica Hermosillo, left, and Sara Howell from Redwood Credit Union, enjoyed the networking, refreshments and wine poured by Milano Family Winery. Last week Cloverdale also saw several hundred rare vintage European automobiles come through downtown. They also created a lot of interest. Many rally drivers and passengers dined at Cloverdale restaurants before heading to Calistoga, the next destination. £ GENEP AL EP CHANDISE SINCE 1911 SPRING IS HERE!

He got his first job with Jack Florence Jr. pruning grape vines. He became a perma- nent resident and then a citizen (in 1996) because of the 1986 Immigra- tion Reform and Control Act. In 1987, he was promoted to part own- er and eventually a partner in Flo- rence Vineyard Management Co. In 2003, he bought out Florence's interest in the company and started Valdez & Sons Vineyard Manage- ment. In 2004, Valdez decided to real- ize his dream of having his own wine brand by creating Valdez Family Winery. With the help of winemakers Paul Hobbs of Paul Hobbs Winery and Jeff Cohen of JC Cellars, Valdez made and released his first wines in 2005 from a shared winemaking facility in Santa Rosa. ,~ce that time, he has produced several more wines and many have received critical acclaim. A few have received 90 point plus scores from The Wine Spectator. In Decem- ber 2010, the 2007 Valdez Family Petite Sirah from Landy Vineyard scored 96 points in The Wine Specta- tor. In May, 2010, Valdez was hon- ored when his "Silver Eagle" Char- '~ donnay from the Russian River Valley was served to President Fe- lipe Calder6n of Mexico at a state dinner at the White House. Mauricio Soto is the winemaker at Valdez Family Winery. He was formerly with Paradise Ridge and Stryker Sonoma wineries. -Elizabeth Valdez April's Business After Hours mixer was hosted by Pamela Mandela, left, at her CloverCale KOA Camping Resort.
