Vignerons Beaumes de Venise

History

The history of Beaumes-de-Venise can be traced back the famous natural history encyclopaedia by Pliny the Elder, where he calls Muscat `The Vine of the Bees`. The name of Beaumes-de-Venise comes from the caves above the village (`Balmes` which becomes `Beaumes` in Provençal). The adjective `Venise` comes from the Comtat Venaissin, the territory of several tribes of Gauls, which belonged to the Vatican from 1229 until taken over by France in 1791 at the same time as Avignon. `Muscat` is a Provençal word meaning `Odour of Musk`. The Greeks brought the famous Muscat grapes to the Rhône Valley, probably the oldest known vine inthe world. Winemaking at Beaumes-de-Venise is strongly traditional and is cariied out in accordance with the wine makers' CHARTER V.I.V.R.E (Vignerons Investis en Viticulture Raisonnée et Environnementale i.e. wine makers who have promised to respect the Environment).

Terroir

The vineyards stretch over the villages of Beaumes de Venise, Suzette, Lafare and La Roque Alric in the department of the Vaucluse; `the Province fo the Popes`. The soils consist of soft limestone, scattered with zones of sandstone and molass. These give light soil with few pebbles. The climate is Mediterranean, and hot because the hills protect the area from the Mistral wind. The argicultural land of the Rhône Valley has a very long history: an integral part of the history of Beaumes-de-Venise where peasants have sculpted the lands (continues) ...

Vignerons de Saumur

The Cave des Vignerons was established in 1957 by a group of winegrowers who wanted to combine their experience and expertise and to meet future challenges. The Saumur Cave des Vignerons is in the heart of the Saumur Champigny vineyard. Located at the top of the Saint Cyr en Bourg hill, it looks like a temple of wine surrounded by vines. Twenty-five metres below the premises, a maze of thousand year-old galleries extending 7 kilometres houses a thriving concern. The white limestone, locally known as tuffeau, was first extracted by the Oratorian monks to build churches, houses and the famous Loire Valley chateaux. The site was bought by local winegrowers in 1957, who dug out two vertical shafts to make full use of gravity flow. This original conception enables various activities to take place on separate levels between the receiving platform, located above ground, and the vats 25 metres below. Milestones 1957 Foundation of the Cave des Vignerons de Saumur 1968 Production reached 10,000 hectolitres 1975 The Cave des Vignerons de Saumur offered their Saumur Champigny to Paris restaurateurs and Saumur wines made their grand entrance in the French capital. The Paris market really took off in 1975. 1994 The Cave des Vignerons de Saumur was awarded the Capus medal, the highest distinction in the Anjou-Saumur area, for their 1993 Saumur Rouge. 1997 The Cave des Vignerons de Saumur celebrated their 40th anniversary with a production of over 85,000 hecto (continues) ...

Vignoble Champalou

Catherine and Didier Champalou have the sensitivity necessary, the natural adaptation to “to smell well? their soils to vinify beautiful wines without forcing the course of the things, not leaving any place randomly. Both children of vine growers, they have managed the estate for 15 years, covering 20 hectares of Chenin on two distinct soils: argilo-limestone (aubuis) on the plates and argilo-siliceous (parakeets) on the slopes. ROUGH VOUVRAY Produced on argilo-limestones soil, from vines 15 to 20 years old, the second fermentation is done in cellar, the bottles remaining on slats for approximately 20 months. Moving is carried out by hand. Discharging is still made “at the flight?, then the bottles rest during three weeks before the sale. The proportioning of our bottles is rough. No assembly is practised because we wish to respect the character of each year. adapted from: http://infosvin.free.fr/VIN/domainechampalou.html without permission

Vin de Pays Cotes de Gascogne

Vin de Pays Côtes de Gascogne is a syndicate of more than 1,400 members, the majority of which belong to cooperatives while 150 producers are independent. Gallo-Roman mosaics at Séviac in Montréal du Gers - dated to the fifth century - bear witness to Gascony's long history of winemaking. In those days, the Adour and Baïse rivers were the most important routes for transporting wine to the Nordic countries. This region tucked between the foot of the Pyrenees and the gateway to the Atlantic has always been a lush land of hillsides and valleys almost entirely devoted to the art of wine growing. Today, almost two thirds of all vineyards in the Gers or 11,700 hectares (28,900 acres) are set aside for the production of Vin de Pays Côtes de Gascogne wines. With its oceanic climate tempered by the Landes forests to the west, the Pyrenees to the south and just the right mix of sunshine, rain and coolness the Gers provides ideal conditions to get the best from its vineyards. When fully mature the wines develop their own particular identity - a rich aromatic palette that is complex and seductive. Gascogne wines also draw their distinctive flavours from the great wealth of Gascony's soil. To the east, Terrefort, a clay soil that lies on a bed of limestone rock. To the west, a mix of clay and silt in the Sables Fauves (tawny sands) and the Boulbènes (a local word for alluvial soils).

Wackenthaler

Ammerschwihr, largest wine commune of the High Rhine, is 8 km from Colmar, (1 km from Kaysersberg) on a soil privileged in the middle of the Alsacien vineyard. The Wackenthaler vineyards are composed of many pieces of land distributed on 3 communes: Ammerschwihr, Kientzheim and Colmar. These soils are all different from/to each other, allowing the wines to profit from the assets of the various soils, and thus to obtain wines of very diversified characteristics.

Warres

Warre's, founded in 1670, was the first British Port company established in Portugal and therefore the pioneer of a great tradition; its history is synonymous with that of Port itself. William Warre, from the Oporto family of Port producers, fought with the Anglo-Portuguese army led by the Duke of Wellington, at nearly every major battle in the Peninsular war (1807-1814). These battles re-established Portugal’s independence. Warre’s Warrior Reserve Port is the first and oldest Port brand in the world, having been shipped continuously since 1750. The Symington Family is descended from Andrew James Symington and Beatrice Atkinson who were married in Oporto in 1891. Andrew James arrived as a young man from Scotland in 1882 and was admitted to partnership in the firm of Warre & Co. in 1905. Beatrice Atkinson was descended from John Atkinson who had lived in Oporto since 1814, and both her father and uncle were Port producers. On her mother’s side, Beatrice Atkinson was a direct descendent of the 17th century Port merchant, Walter Maynard, English Consul in Oporto in 1659. He is recorded in the official archives of the city of Oporto as shipping 39 Pipes of Port in 1652. This is the second oldest shipment of Port (by one year) ever made by a British merchant and pre-dates the foundation date of any British Port company. Thus the Symington family’s ancestry in the Port trade spans a period of over 350 years, through 13 generations, from Walter Maynard to the pre (continues) ...

William Cole

My home, the Casablanca Valley of Chile, is well known for its natural beauty. Rugged hills are seen in every direction, and between them, fertile farms with small villages nestled here and there. Perhaps, though, the most beautiful parts of the valley are the fields of wine grapevines. Their rich green colors spread sometimes as far as the eye can see; they are arrayed row upon row of meticulously cultivated Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Merlot and Carmenere. It is partly the soil diversity that makes the Casablanca Valley one of the premier wine producing regions in the world. But for me, the most important factor is the climate; typically, the intensely cold waters of the nearby Pacific Ocean create cool foggy nights while clear, cloudless days are usual during the growing season. And every day, an afternoon breeze brings dry, clean air about the leaves of each plant to keep them free of damaging spores. So you can see why I call this valley home.

Windmeul Cellar

Located on the verdant Northern slopes of Paarl Mountain in the heart of the Paarl Winelands, Windmeul Kelder was first established in 1944. Originally the brainchild of a group of export grape farmers who sought to vinify a portion of their crop that was not suitable for table use, the co-operative cellar was a joint venture between these growers and several wine farmers from the Paarl region. While the cellar initially mainly produced distilling and rebate wines, the impeccable quality of the regional terroir lead to experimentation with vineyard practices and cultivars. Today the cellar draws from a host of well-tended vineyards, enabling the winemaking team to produce a range of exceptional wines that are enjoyed both locally and abroad. The windmill to which the cellar owes its name formed the hub of economic activity in this region during the 1800s and was according to popular lore arguably the finest mill in the entire country. Not much remains of the remarkable mill today, but we continue to be inspired by the honest toil and diligent industry that lies at the heart of the miller’s trade and seek to imbue our craft with the same sense of virtue and authenticity.

Woodthorpe Te Mata

Te Mata Estate is New Zealand’s oldest winery, dating from the early 1890’s. It is a New Zealand family owned winery – a true estate, specialising in grape growing and winemaking from its ten Hawke’s Bay vineyards. Acknowledged as one of only five icon wineries in New Zealand. Te Mata’s completely handmade wines are renowned as the country’s finest. Under the direction of John Buck, Te Mata Estate has, over nearly thirty years, produced a stunning array of red and white wines including such famous labels as Coleraine and Awatea Cabernet/Merlots, Bullnose Syrah, Elston Chardonnay and Cape Crest Sauvignon Blanc. Not content to rest on its laurels, Te Mata has also developed a unique single vineyard from which it produces its Woodthorpe and Rymer’s Change wines. Te Mata Estate, in its centenary year, established the New Zealand Poet Laureate award to recognise outstanding contributions to New Zealand poetry. Each winning poet is appointed for a two year tenure and receives from Te Mata Estate, a grant of both money and wine, together with an individual tokotoko (a ceremonial carved walking stick) symbolising their achievement and status. In 2003 Te Mata joined forces with Victoria University’s International Institute of Modern Letters to enhance the public profile of New Zealand poetry through a range of Laureate visits to secondary schools and public engagements. At the end of each poets term Te Mata Estate combines with international publisher R (continues) ...
