Why Are Napa Valley Wines so Special? – State & Allen

State & Allen

The Napa Valley in California has long been regarded one of the best places to get great wine, particularly in the United States. And here at State & Allen Kitchen + Bar in Dallas, Texas, we stock many delicious wines from the region. But why are wines from the Napa Valley so special? What sets them apart from other regions of the world?

State & Allen did a little investigating and here’s what we found out:

Unique Soil Combination

The soil in the Napa Valley is unprecedented in its variations, with most other wine regions around the world lucky to even have a fraction of the fertile soil that Napa does. At just 30 miles long and 4 miles wide at its largest point, the Valley is made up of varying topography, including the collision of two mountain ranges, volcanic soil from California earthquakes, varying sea levels that wash sediments in and out, and even wooded areas. These changes in topography are what make the soil uniquely suited to grow grapes of varying kinds – and do it well. There is no other wine region in the world with so many topography nuances to add flavor and depth to the wine.

Perfect Climate

At the bottom of the Napa Valley, you’ll find the San Pablo Bay, and wine loves can thank this marine inlet for creating the perfect climate for grapes of all varieties. Napa is traditionally warm and growers worry about the grapes overheating, but it’s the winds of the San Pablo Bay that rush up from the south and will cool down the grapes so they can mature slowly.

Ready to grab a glass of Napa wine? State & Allen located in Uptown Dallas, Texas has a vast menu of red and white wine available by the glass – or by the bottle. All of our wines are carefully curated so you really can’t go wrong, and many of our selected wines are from the Napa Valley. And don’t forget about Wine Down Wednesdays, where we have the best wine specials in Dallas!

What You Need to Know about Dallas’ Newest Restaurant: Ross & Hall

State & Allen

It’s not open yet, but we’ll spill the beans: State & Allen is opening a sister restaurant in the Deep Ellum/Downtown Dallas area.

 

Get ready folks because Ross & Hall is coming this Fall, and we hope you love the concept as much as we do! Here are a few things you need to know about Dallas’ newest restaurant:

 

Dallas Scratch Kitchen & Beer Garden

While State & Allen has the Dallas scratch kitchen and craft cocktails down to an art, Ross & Hall will take that a step further by offering a full beer garden. That’s right – everything from impeccable craft beers from the likes of Lakewood Brewing Co. to the everyday mainstays like Miller Lite will be on tap. Your favorite brews and plenty of new ones to try – all ice cold and ready to be enjoyed. But know that Ross & Hall isn’t all beer. We’ll have a full menu of carefully chosen wine, bourbon, and other spirits as well.

 

New Restaurant. New Menu.

Don’t just assume that this is State & Allen 2.0. While we’ll definitely be bringing the best of State & Allen to Dallas’ newest restaurant, we’ll also be customizing the menu to the palette of the area. Expect to see new entrees on the menu, and we’ll continue to tweak that menu as the restaurant opens and feedback is given. Ross & Hall may be a mere 3 miles from State & Allen, but we recognize that this is a different area and we want you to call it your own!

 

Green Initiatives are a Priority.

As with State & Allen and Social Pie, the owners of Ross & Hall value our environment. State & Allen has gone through rigorous steps to be awarded as one of the greenest restaurants in Dallas, and you can expect that Ross & Hall will be no exception. It’s the little things that add up and make a difference.

 

Stay tuned for more information to come on opening dates for Ross & Hall! If you or anyone else you know are interested in applying to work at Ross & Hall, email us at rosshall@calwink.com.
