Sting: pay to pick my grapes

sting_estate
Finding labor to perform the annual harvest at a vineyard can be hard. Many wineries compete for migrant laborers at a time when there are lots of other fruit to bring in; we’ve even seen酿酒厂招募学生选择葡萄。但刺痛没有这样的困难:托斯卡纳的英国人每天收取350美元的人来到他的葡萄园里工作。

这paying pickers would arrive at a leisurely 11:30 at Il Palagio, Sting and Trudie Styler’s 900-acre estate. After a picnic on a lawn, with possibly a game on the giant chess set, the paying help can then start laboring for up to four hours. Then, freshen up (no word if the pool is available), and, before heading out, try a sampling of the estates wines, including the rosso “Message in a Bottle,” which sells in the US for about $20. No word if the estate’s owners will be around but guest workers will get a talk from the estate manager about the vineyards and soil, as well as winemaking.

如果您无法在托斯卡纳太阳下获得足够的时间,那么您可以在11月回去,并收获Sting的橄榄。

G.D. Vajra in Barolo – “clean traditionalist”

giuseppe_vajraGiuseppe Vaira was caught in a fight when he was in elementary school. It wasn’t the sort of meet-you-at-the-bike-racks kind of thing. No, it encapsulated what might happen only to the son of a winemaker, or even the son of a Barolo winemaker. He was classmates with two other kids who were also from wine families. One said proudly that he was the son of a modernist winemaker while the other said proudly that she was the daughter of a traditionalist. No doubt, both the kids harrumphed, crossed their arms, and turned their backs to each other.

PROSEK / PROSECCO:令人困惑?欧盟说是的

prosecco_prosekCroatia is set to become the 28th member state of the EU on July 1. Yet the membership has hit a vinous snag: the EU requires that winemakers drop the local wine name “Prosek” since it sounds too much like Prosecco from Italy. Yet the two wines are different since Prosek is sweet, still and centuries-old while Prosecco is (mostly) dry, fizzy and a more recent creation.

“I can’t even think what would happen if our Prosek disappears,” a leading maker of the wine toldAP。他继续说:“这里的每栋房子都一直在制作散文克。从达尔马提亚夺走Prosek就像带走大海一样。“

您如何看待 - 一种悲剧或必要的?无论哪种方式,我都相信来自土耳其的红甜酒的“Champay”生产者正在重新考虑他们的欧盟支持。

Destroyed: six complete vintages of Soldera

蒙塔尔科诺的令人震惊和令人发指的犯罪导致了六个完整的葡萄酒葡萄酒,被誉为令人瞩目的,昂贵,已经难以找到的葡萄酒。未知的攻击者闯入酿酒厂并打开了大橡木桶的水龙头。2007 - 2012的所有未燃料葡萄酒的内容溢出到地板上,失去了排水沟。永远。酒厂里没有别的东西被盗或摧毁WinEnews.it.,这是根据Gianfranco Soldera的沟通的简要账户。

It’s a tragic crime against wine. This news rips at the heart of any wine enthusiast, indeed probably anyone who can imagine six years of their work destroyed especially since it never saw the light of day.

In all, the equivalent of 80,000 bottles of wine was lost. The last vintage of Soldera that is commercially available, the 2006, fetches about $250 a bottle. (find this wine)

On Twitter, reaction was swift. Alder Yarrow dropped theF bomb莱尔大豆called it “Beyond heinous,” calling it the “worst news I could imagine out of Italy and the wine world.” Italian Wine Merchants鸣叫“I can’t begin to wrap my mind around Soldera’s loss. Like having your children, your life’s work and your art killed at once.”Michael Madrigale鸣叫: “horrible. wicked. I’ve heard of this happening in Southern Italy (mafia) but never in Tuscany.”John Gilman想知道,“会好好占上风吗?”

Katherine Cole在布鲁厄洛的活动中表达了常识的情感:“为什么为什么为什么为什么为什么为什么会为什么有人会这样做的是什么人会对gianfranco solosera呢?

UPDATE 12/4:Gianfranco Soldera推出了一款新闻稿,详细说明了62,600升被摧毁。他在这时写道,他写了“我们的思想和行动,仅针对未来,因为没有恐吓可以阻止我们的工作和对这片土地的激情和它收益的产品。”所有的声明在这里。感谢罗伯特·博尔·罗勒的选择,美国进口商的美国进口商,用于传递它。

Drink like a hipster: pelaverga edition

Pelaverga。从来没有听说过?这是可以理解的。这几乎是普遍存在的祖传群品种,曾经以更大的数量种植(甚至在它必须在100%Nebbiolo之前融入Barolo)。现在,葡萄在少数生产者自己装瓶葡萄时,葡萄正在经历一种复兴,其中一些生产者正在向我们的海岸分钟批量批量。

G. B. Burlotto,Verduno镇的生产者对他们的BaroLo更令人着迷,使2010年Pelverga成为。浅色是卡皮黑色的,但口感是更轻,佩戴佩的单宁底阳亮的水果。它不同体是一个巴罗洛,但它不需要:这是美食友好的,虽然兄弟在今年夏天是一个有趣的红色。

Orange ya glad you asked? Levi Dalton on orange wines

橙色葡萄酒正在席卷这个国家!好吧,那样的东西。这些白色葡萄酒从葡萄皮上发酵,富有丰富,有时橙色,色调。由于橙色是本赛季的颜色,特别是讨论,如果不是尝试,现在是橙色的葡萄酒。这就是Dave Erickson,北卡罗来纳州的网站读者博客the Wine Mule,一直在做,他在这个问题上发送了他们:

We had a tasting of orange wines夜晚, and the question came up: How do sommeliers deal with these wines, when they all seem to need anywhere from 4 to 24 hours to become presentable? Do they tell diners to call in advance? Do they use aerators?

I forwarded it toLevi Dalton.,趋势设置侍酒师,现在至少几年在葡萄酒世界中闪耀橙色光线。以下是他的详细回复:

Back in 2009, when I held the first of a series of Orange wine dinners at Convivio restaurant in Manhattan,阅读更多…

Refreshing Brunello: Il Paradiso

I attended a private dinner recently where a Brunello was the main wine. It was big and extracted and I found it fatiguing. I can’t even remember the producer’s name. Of course, the palate fatigue wasn’t helped that the other wines on the table were a primitivo and an Amarone. It was the sort of lineup that made me want to step outside under the pretense of feeding the meter and wander off to find a beer.

几个星期后,我有另一面的Brunello,恰当地命名为Il Paradiso。1958年,Manfredi Martini在Montalcino买了一些土地。他在Biondi-Santi工作,并将他的七英亩的财产从橄榄树转换为桑迪瓦夫格罗索的葡萄园。当Brunello de Montalcino Doc于1968年成立时,只有十几种生产商(现在超过200)。今天,葡萄园每年ekes仅为9,000瓶,在罗索和布鲁诺洛之间分裂。Manfredi的女儿和女婿,索拉和弗洛里奥,继续从有机种植的葡萄园中制作旧学校的Brunello,并在大约2,500升的桶中抬起。

当Sangiovese正在进行中,它是华丽的。我在美国发射时尝到了葡萄酒(Grand Cru选择正在进口;搜索for these wines)。这2004was the richest of the wines I tasted–this is still Brunello, not Chianti, after all–but it was plummy rather than the tiring jam. The thing that got me about this wine was the concentration without being overdone. The2001has an alluring aroma of spice, cedar, faint volatility and oxidation with a lovely, appetizing bitterness on the ten-year old tannins. Layered and complex, it is drinking well now. The2000Riserva在大型橡木桶中看到了更多时间,但拥有旧学校的魅力,冗长的地球,皮革和微弱的香料。这些是独特的瘀伤 - 绝对不是人走出去的。

A transitional red: SP68


随着秋天的天气开始到达,这是季节性转换的一葡萄酒:Arianna Occhipinti的SP68 Red。在西西里岛的有机葡萄园中欢呼,葡萄酒将夏季快乐与Nero D'Avola的结构融为一体。为最大限度的享受而稍微冷静下来。2010年比2009年更加单纯,但两者都很简单,有趣的饮酒。(Search for this wine at retail)

2004年,Arianna Occhipinti在成熟年龄的21岁的成熟年龄制作了她的第一个Agricola Occhipinti葡萄酒。她的叔叔Giusto,在西西里岛的传统酿酒厂制作葡萄酒。她自然让她的葡萄酒;了解更多关于她的信息这Q&A。我最近在纽约的纽约州倒了这款葡萄酒,而这个团队真的很喜欢它。我还向他们展示了Arianna(右)和一个人的照片,评论了她年轻的外表,说它看起来好像她从来没有反对合作社的董事会。
