200 Years of Madeira Wine Tasting at Wine Watch You can not call yourself a wine lover if you have never tried Madeira. I remember the first time that I tasted a vertical selection of Madeira at the Great Wine Seminar and I was stunned at the wines complexity and the layers of flavors and aromas that continued to rise from the glass for hours. These Madeiras were from the cellar of Dr. Bob Maliner, the founder of this yearly event that has now been taken over by Bob and Arlette Cataldo in its 24th year. Join us as we will taste through one hundred seventy -two years of Madiera. Chef Michael Saperstein will be preparing a few courses to accompany the tasting wines. The fee for this tasting is $275 + tax, for reservations call 954-523-9463. Madiera is an island off the coast of Morocco that belongs to Portugal. Historically, it was a popular port of call for ships on the trade routes between Africa, Asia and the Americas. The original Madeira wines were made as a powerful white wine, however to protect them during transport they were fortified - alcohol is added before fermentation is complete, which stops the process and leaves residual sugar in the wine. Sea Captains discovered that long ocean voyages actually improved casks of Madeira. Unlike other wines, heat and oxidation are essential to Madeira and so the wine is virtually indestructible. During the 18th and 19th century, Madeira was America's wine of choice and most fashionable drink amongst hi-society. When the Declaration of Independence was signed they toasted ...

Hine The House of HINE stands on the banks of the River Charente, deep in Cognac country. In the ancient cellars behind, little has changed in 250 years. Always locked, they protect the finest vintages. This is one of the oldest houses in Jarnac, and has always been the company's headquarters. For over two centuries, the Hine family home remained largely unchanged. But then experimental English designer Russell Sage, known for his love of antique textiles, ancient buildings and the finer things in life, was brought in to give the place fresh new appeal. He combined the 'best of British' traditions (the likes of Savile Row bespoke tailoring, hand-made shoes and city shirts) with out-and-out British eccentricity. His unorthodox approach — much in line with HINE's — gave rise to a delightfully original interior design style. generation to generation Thomas Hine earned a reputation for being a serious, hard worker, but not lacking in a good sense of humour. His in-depth knowledge of finance and business, good commercial sense together with his French and English skills gave him special status. He expanded what was to become the traditional business of the HINE company; making bespoke cognacs for English wine merchants. When his father-in-law died, his mother-in-law chose Thomas — rather than one of her own sons — to take charge of the family cognac business. In 1817, Thomas gave his name to the company: Thomas Hine & Co. Just a few years later, in 1822, he died of pneumonia at the ...

Flyover: Conti Costanti e Eredi Fuligni - the vineyards Driving through Tuscany, we came upon a delightful small medieval town perched atop a hill, called Montalcino. The hill upon which the town was erected dominates the Orcia Valley (Val d'Orcia), northwest of Monte Amiata. One theory regarding the name traces it to "mons", mountain in Latin, and "ilcinus", as the countryside abounds with holm oaks ("ilex") -- one of them firmly planted in the citadel's coat of arms. The town is first mentioned in 814, and the oldest buildings go back as far as the tenth century BC. Ironically, the wine as such is relatively recent, by Italian standards. It did not exist in the Middle Ages, when Montalcino was famous for a sweet white wine called Moscadello. Its beginnings were "only" around 1860/1870, and we have Phylloxera to thank for it. Phylloxera's devastation had wiped out many vineyards, in the hopes to preserve their routes the farmers replanted them not with white grapes but with a local clone of Sangiovese Grosso, "Brunello" ("bruno" meaning "dark", from the berries' especially dark color). The result was so great that slowly more and more producers began making wines from pure Sangiovese Grosso, sans the white minority grapes that dimmed the noble Tuscan's light at the time. At that point, demand rose from all over Italy, then from abroad, as Brunello di Montalcino acquired increasing renown as one of the two longest-living wines in Italy.
Grenache (a hip hop wine tutorial part II)Kool Keef&Nappy J Kool Keef & Nappy J deliver another informative rollercoaster ride of booty shaking, hip gyrating, baby making grooves. Grenache lyrics: Gigondas and Chateuneuf de Pape use a lot of Grenache, 80 percent or more, well usually. While Tavel and Cotes de Rhone like it for rose. Its got lots of alcohol cause the grapes are sweet. It grows on hillsides steep, in the desert heat. Austrailia is known for GSM blends. That's grenache, syrah, mourvedre my non savvy friends. Got to give it up for Le Mistral. The intense cold wind blowing from the Alps. Although Grenache likes to grow where its dry and hot, the icy blast cools the vine and prevents the rot. It gets a lot of sun, but doesn't get a lot of tannin. With high alcohol and sugar so you know the body's bangin'. The grapes are low in pigment, as well as malic acid. The spicy berry flavor should be soft on your palette. Grenache is big, but without the backbone. In fact it dominates in the southern Rhone. It's the number one red grape planted in the world. Add mourvedre or cinsault for a flavor swirl. It is a little dry, but can be drank alone. So we add the other grapes to round out the tone. Its got lavender, thyme, vanilla, oak and smoked wood. Blend the acid and tannins to make it really good. Said to have orgins in the country of Spain, this grape goes by many a name. Often the M word that's tricky to say, Moo Vad, Moor Vahd, or Mourvedre. The Portuguese call it Mataro. Monstrell in Spain. In parts of France its known as ...

Wine Show, Thailand by For Bookings: For More Video: Wine is an alcoholic beverage typically made of fermented grape juice. The natural chemical balance of grapes is such that they can ferment without the addition of sugars, acids, enzymes or other nutrients. Wine is produced by fermenting crushed grapes using various types of yeast. Yeast consumes the sugars found in the grapes and converts them into alcohol. Different varieties of grapes and strains of yeasts are used depending on the type of wine being produced. Although other fruits such as apples and berries can also be fermented, the resultant wines are normally named after the fruit from which they are produced (for example, apple wine or elderberry wine) and are generically known as fruit wine or country wine (not to be confused with the French term vin de pays). Others, such as barley wine and rice wine (ie, sake), are made from starch-based materials and resemble beer and spirit more than wine, while ginger wine is fortified with brandy. In these cases, the use of the term "wine" is a reference to the higher alcohol content, rather than production process. The commercial use of the English word "wine" (and its equivalent in other languages) is protected by law in many jurisdictions. Wine has a rich history dating back to around 6000 BC and is thought to have originated in areas now within the borders of Georgia and Iran. Wine probably appeared in Europe at about 4500 BC in ...

Vinos de Chile / Wines of Chile Wine grapes (Vitis vinifera) are not native to the Americas; they arrived with the Spanish in the 1500s. Early attempts to form vineyards in more northerly climes, such as the Caribbean, Mexico, and Peru proved unsuccessful; in Chile, however, the vine found its first true New World home. The Catholic missionaries who followed the Spanish Conquistadors lamented the lack of wine that was essential for celebrating religious rites, and they set about to resolve the problem. Fray Francisco de Carabantes is widely credited with bringing the first vines probably País (pronounced " pah-EES" and known as "Mission" in California) into Chile through the port of Concepción round 1548. Such was the success that vineyards were quickly planted throughout the country from the Limarí Valley in the north to Bío-Báío Valley in the south precisely the areas that still delimit the vast majority of Chile's wine production today. Of course the desire for wine in Chile was not limited to the Church-there were plenty of secular uses for the traditional European beverage of choice. The thirsty residents of the burgeoning capital city of Santiago also clamored for wine, and the surrounding Maipo Valley proved to be a ready and abundant source of red wine. Improvements in maritime transportation made cross-Atlantic travel much more viable by the early 19th century. Chile, freshly emancipated from Spain, yearned for knowledge of its European roots, and members of the country's wealthiest families ...

The Scent of Black In the Cahors region of France, black truffles are almost literally as valuable as gold in the culinary world. Prized for their glorious scent, black truffles are fungi that grow exclusively on the roots of oak trees. Found in late autumn and winter, the truffles cannot be seen since they grow under the ground. Pigs, or specially trained dogs have been used to search for these elusive truffles. About 20% of the French production comes from southwest France, which possesses the limestone soils and dry hot weather that truffles need to grow. In the late 19th century, an epidemic of phylloxera destroyed many of the vineyards in southern France. Large tracts of land were set free for the cultivation of truffles. Thousands of truffle-producing trees were planted, and production reached the peak of hundreds of tonnes by the end of the 19th century. Wars during the 20th Century decimated the fields. After 1945, the production of truffles plummeted, and prices rose dramatically. In 1900, truffles were used by most French people, and on many occasions. Today, they are a rare delicacy reserved for the wealthy, or used on very special occasions. Originally a common grape in Bordeaux, Malbec has lost popularity as one of the five varieties in the Bordeaux blends. Meanwhile, Malbec increased its status in the French region of Cahors, an area southeast of Bordeaux, where it creates distinctive wines that now require 70% of the variety. GrapeRadio is proud to present a look at the ...

"Santiago, a city protected on all four sides" Gails's photos around Bariloche, Chile A TripAdvisor™ TripWow slideshow of a travel blog to Bariloche, Chile by TravelPod blogger Gails titled "Santiago, a city protected on all four sides" Gails's travel blog entry: "We had the whole day inPuerto Varas before our flight to Santiago. A few of the group decided to spend it by going to Chiloe Island (not sure of the spelling) to see the penguins. I decided to stay put and just take a short tour to the top of a volcano and I´m very glad I did. Four of us had a private guide, with very little English, who took us all round the area which is spectacularly beautiful. First we visited the Petrohue River on which there are exciting rapids, waterfalls, and the most amazing colour of turquoise water. It´s all to do with the limestone and glistening particles that flow down from surrounding mountains and volcanoes. Only in December and January there is a flying bug, a type of horsefly, that lands and BITES. He only likes dark coloured clothing and guess who was wearing a DARK green tee shirt! Of course my repellent was back on the van so was swatting away at these things to no effect. Got a few bites but not too serious. We stopped for coffee overlooking a huge lake, the name of which escapes me, but is the second largest lake in the country. There is a German influence around these parts and the cafe we were in must have had Turkish influences too because you could trot a donkey across the coffee! I noticed some of the brass coffee pots similar to Brian´s from the ...
Langmeil Freedom 1843 Shiraz - Wine Australia A+ angmeil Winery is home to what we believe to be the oldest surviving pre phylloxera Shiraz vineyard in the world, The Freedom 1843. The question: is it amongst the greatest? The Barossa is believed to house the oldest living Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards on the planet. Beyond age, vinous interest is then focused on their absolute quality and uniqueness. The Wine Spectator opined, "Old vines can make a difference. Everyone knows that nothing is more important than what the Italians evocatively call 'la materia prima', the foundation ingredient. If you've got a good site and good winemaking—which are hardly incidental — then old vines can make a discernible impact." Matt Kramer 2010 At Langmeil we consider The Freedom 1843 Shiraz to be as significant as the greatest vineyards of the world. After more than a decade at the helm, Paul Lindner fifth generation Barossan and Langmeil family winemaker, believes The Freedom vineyard has all the hallmarks of a great terroir. The essence of Barossa Shiraz whose ancestry and pedigree is universally acclaimed. The ultimate judge will be 'Time, tide and fortune'.

"Bottle Shock in Colchagua Valley" Btran's photos around Santa Cruz, Chile A TripAdvisor™ TripWow slideshow of a travel blog to Santa Cruz, Chile by TravelPod blogger Btran titled "Bottle Shock in Colchagua Valley" Btran's travel blog entry: "About 1.5hrs south of Santiago is the heart of Chilean wine production. The Colchagua Valley has been described as the Napa Valley of Chile. While the Maipo Valley (closer to Santiago) is known for Cabernet Sauvignon, the Colchagua Valley is well regarded for Carmenere. If you haven't heard the story, it is quite interesting... Carmenere is a grape that resembles Merlot. Originally one of the six red grapes of Bordeaux, it is virtually extinct in France due to the Phylloxera plague of 1867. Chilean growers had been planting Carmenere since the 1850s when they imported the rootstock along with other varietals from France. Until the 1990s, Carmenere was collected and processed alongside Merlot grapes, to which it very closely resembles. Not until 1994, did a French Oenologist discover that the slightly spicier tasting Chilean Merlot was actually Carmenere. Discovering this varietal was the highlight of the week! We stayed at Hotel Vina Casa Silva, a small boutique hotel that is part of Vina Casa Silva. Besides the hotel and vineyard, the owners also operate a riding school. This provided an opportunity for use to take daily riding lessons from Consuela, a spunky 26yr old competitive jumper. After our morning lessons, we would either ride or walk through the vineyard, or explore other nearby vineyards. This is ...
Franco Espanolas - El Corazón De La Rioja Bodegas Franco - Espanolas, SA was created as an indirect result of the biggest misfortunes in the history of French wine making. In the second half of the 19th century, French vineyards were almost completely ruined by phylloxera. This led vineyard owners from Bordeaux, a region characterised by the high quality of its vines and a great tradition for making world - renowned wines, to move to Spain in search of suitable soil and climates where they could continue to produce and age the wines for which they were famous.
Vineyard 1869 This is the taste of history - a Zinfandel from America's Oldest Zinfandel Vineyard. Scott Harvey, a German-trained, California winemaker has created an elegant, complex, first growth wine. On March 24, 2009, Vineyard 1869 will be released and available at . This renowned vineyard was planted 140 years ago. The ancient vines plunged their roots through twenty-five feet of multiple soil types in search of water. The famous vineyard was first noted in a deed from an 1869 US Geological Survey - making it America's oldest documented Zinfandel vineyard. The immigrants who planted these vines chose them from hardy stock. In the late 1800's, the vines survived the nearly total destruction of California's vineyards from the disease phylloxera and in the 1900's they survived Prohibition. The vineyard now produces small yields of high quality Zinfandel. It is now coveted for producing California's premier Old Vine Zinfandel.

10. Cafés and the Culture of Drink France Since 1871 (HIST 276) Because drinking is such an integral part of French culture, alcohol abuse has been historically ignored. Although there have been celebrated attempts to address this problem, such as Zola's L'Assomoir, it is only in the past five or ten years that the government has seriously tried to tackle the problem of alcoholism. One of the major ways in which alcohol is embedded in the cultural identity of the country is the close association of certain wines and liquors with their regions of production. Likewise, different types of bars serve as loci for social interaction, and have always played a central role in rural as well as urban life. Complete course materials are available at the Open Yale Courses website: open.yale.edu This course was recorded in Fall 2007.

Wine Tasting Notes: 2007 Parducci True Grit Winemaker Bob Swain tastes his 2007 Parducci True Grit. Can a wine be rugged and true? Can it be swaggering, brash and confident? Taste True Grit and you'll answer, "Yes!" Petite Sirah survived phylloxera and Prohibition, and some of those old, burly vines still stand, among the oldest in America. We've been making Petite Sirah at Parducci for generations. We know our way around this varietal, and True Grit is something special: big and bold, with plenty of heart. Dark, intense, peppery, and a little rough around the edges. Brash when young, but worth waiting for -- it mellows with age.
[F] Domaine O Pithon, Roussillon --- A visit to the winery Domaine Olivier Pithon that Olivier founded in 2001. He originally comes from the Layon region in the Loire Valley but settled in Roussillon to make wine. He came to the Calce village to taste the wines of Gerard Gauby, one of the leaders in new French winemaking. He tasted, and then he stayed. Olivier tries to make very personal wines - with a lot of freshness, acidity, and elegance. He makes white wines using the traditional grape varieties macabeu, grenache blanc and grenache gris. His reds are made with grenache noir, carignan, and a bit of syrah and mourvedre. In this village one can still find vines planted just after the Phylloxera, about one hundred years old! There is a small group of hard core winemakers with similar philosophies in Calce: Pithon, Matassa, Gauby, Padie,... Pithon explains how he works with bio-dynamism (which in some ways can be seen as an extreme form of organic vine growing) and what role the plants and herbs play in the biodynamic winegrowing. Biodynamic agriculture (and thence vine growing) was created some hundred years ago by Rudolf Steiner in Germany and not all is necessarily applicable in the Roussillon...
