Winemaker Jail Birdies

Assault with a golf marker. Whew.
Stephan Kidder

Deputies said Stephan Kidder, 36, of Chateau Sinnet Winery, was found trespassing and interfering with a business about 5:30 p.m. on the 100 block of East Carmel Valley Road. When asked to leave, deputies said, Kidder threatened employees with the marker.

Deputies said that when they arrived, he ran into the Carmel River. Deputies were able to talk Kidder out of the river, and he was booked into the Monterey County Jail on suspicion of exhibiting a deadly weapon, public intoxication and trespassing. Jail officials said Kidder also had a warrant for driving with a suspended license, without vehicle insurance and registration.

Primo – Small Food Portions, Big Whines

The wine bar was a losing business prospect over at the Grove Bistro which stayed open for 9 months.

Can being open four days a week be a success? Will they add live music like the ‘pretending to be a bookstore’ coffee house or ‘pretending to be a home theater store’? The clock starts now.

Don’t forget that Big Wines attract crime.

Winos Attract Crime?

At least it stays in Carmel. Guess there are no paintings or wine worth stealing in P.G.

Carmel police are trying to solve what they are calling a bizarre robbery at a cheese shop in Carmel Plaza.

Police said thieves cut a hole in the drywall to enter the shop. Once inside, they went after specific targets that included rare, collectible wines

Pacific Grove Artwalk did say that paintings and wine go together.

Carmel’s art galleries attract crime, now the wine boutiques join the victim list.

Study: $90 wine tastes better than the same wine at $10

(C|net)

Winos – sheesh. At least they are happy when the fork over $90 for a bottle of cheap wine at a P.G. eatery.

Wino Wisdom

Researchers from the California Institute of Technology and Stanford’s business school have directly seen that the sensation of pleasantness that people experience when tasting wine is linked directly to its price. And that’s true even when, unbeknownst to the test subjects, it’s exactly the same Cabernet Sauvignon with a dramatically different price tag.

Specifically, the researchers found that with the higher priced wines, more blood and oxygen is sent to a part of the brain called the medial orbitofrontal cortex, whose activity reflects pleasure. Brain scanning using a method called functional magnetic resonance imaging (FMRI) showed evidence for the researchers’ hypothesis that “changes in the price of a product can influence neural computations associated with experienced pleasantness,” they said.

Wine will be served at the next Pacific Grove Artwalk scheduled from 6 to 9 p.m. on Aug. 10, said Artwalk organizers.

In May, wine was banned during the regular showcase of the town’s art galleries after Police Chief Darius Engles sent a letter to the Chamber of Commerce informing the organization that without licenses, merchants could not legally provide alcohol to the public during the event

Art Galleries Go Dry

Wino Drunk Joseph Minton

A ban on serving wine during a regular showcase of Pacific Grove art galleries has uncorked spirited protests in the once-dry town.

Back at his art gallery, Robert Lewis said the wine caper is just a symptom of a greater problem: The city doesn’t have a clear vision for itself.

Hah! Chug some wine and wander in the fog – no one has a clear vision.
