Did you know that Uruguay’s wine regions are often compared with those of Bordeaux and New Zealand as climate is quite similar. Here we have Albariño: wine with floral (jasmin) and stone fruits aromas. Wine has fresh acidity and flavors of peach and apricot, body is medium. Very nice wine for branch 😉
🎄🎁 Another New-World wonder but this time from the high-altitude vineyards in Mendoza, Argentina 🇦🇷 😀 This is their entry level stuff but it sure has set the bar high for the rest of their wines 🙈 It's rich and smooth with flavours of blackberries and blueberries. I actually got a few hints of chocolate 🍫 too which made the whole tasting experience very pleasant 😍🍷 And guess what? It's organic wine so it must be good for you right?! 😲 I mean wine is always good for you but when I know that pesticides, fungicides and all the other chemical products ☢ have been kept away from the vineyards I tend to feel better about pouring another glass on a Thursday evening 😎🍷
TIP: you know you should drink more water, right? Get a super pretty rose gold water-holder from #starbucks and I promise you’ll be more keen on getting it in ya. Or, bring it to your Christmas parties to hold your wine. Just saving the environment one giant sized cup at a time. You’re welcome. 💧 💦 #drinkwater#drinkwine#becausebalance#fitlife
We are SO excited to celebrate this incredible year and holiday season with you guys! We open at 1pm for our final tastings of the year. We will be offering small bites, live music and plenty of wine for drinking and to take home! See you soon!
Over the last 6 years, I have perfected my kourabiedes recipe so that they become so tender that they already crumble when taken out of the oven. But this year I wanted to try a new recipe for a change, so I decided to give Georgios‘ recipe a try. Baking is my specialty, so nobody should challenge me there. I have to say, his recipe is really good, so I’ll trial him as my sous chef ! He’s got strong arms, he could do the mixing when I get tired. And in the very unlikely event that he tuns out to be no good, at least he’ll look good doing it ! 😉
Über die letzten 6 Jahre habe ich mein Kourabiedes Rezept immer weiter perfektioniert, sodass sie so zart werden, dass sie bereits beim Rausmehmen aus dem Ofen zerbröseln. Aber dieses Jahr wollte ich zur Abwechlung mal ein anderes Rezept ausprobieren und so habe ich Georgios‘ Rezept ausprobiert. Backen ist meine Spezialität, also sollte mich besser niemand herausfordern. Ich muss sagen, sein Rezept ist richtig gut. Ich überlege ihn zu meinem Sous Chef zu machen ! Er hat starke Arme und kann das das Mixen übernehmen, wenn ich müde werde Und für den sehr unwahrscheinlichen Fall, dass er nicht gut ist, wird er gut dabei aussehen ! 😉
With 8 days to go there's still time to get your friends and family one of these beauties 🎁🎄No need to panic any longer, you've just found THE perfect present for anyone that likes wine! 🙈 A @coravin lets you pour wine from the bottle without even taking the cork out - MIRACLE! 🌟 Finished are the days when you poured wine down the sink because it had been left open for too long 😎 With Coravin you can have as much as you want whilst the bottle remains untouched❗⚠️ If you drink a glass per evening and live on your own you'd only need a bottle a week 😲 Buy 1 bottle instead of 2 and drink delicious wine!! Quality rather than quantity - why not make that your New Years Resolution⁉️😀🍷🎄

Now, we'll let you get back to your regularly scheduled coffee, mimosa, brunch, and the like. Peace. <3

So if you whant visit the archeological museum of Naples to see this shown and after contact me and I will suggest you a place were drink 🍷🧟♂️
O Marquês de Pombal e o Vinho do Porto
Por Marcelo Copello (trecho do livro “Os Sabores do Douro e do Minho” Editora Senac-SP)
Sebastião José de Carvalho e Melo, mais conhecido como Marquês de Pombal ou Conde de Oeiras, foi o secretário de Estado do Reino (o equivalente a primeiro-ministro) do Rei D. José I entre 1750 e 1777. Pombal é até hoje um dos personagens mais carismáticos e controversos da história de Portugal. Poderoso e autoritário, foi um grande impulsionador da indústria vinícola e responsável por várias reformas administrativas, econômicas e sociais que marcaram a história de Portugal e a história do vinho, como a criação da primeira região vinícola demarcada e regulamentada do mundo.
A criação da “Companhia”
“Eu el-rei, faço saber... que os principais lavradores de cima do Douro, e homens bons da cidade do Porto, nelas enunciados, fizeram e ordenaram com meu real consentimento [os cinqüenta e três capítulos e condições], para formarem uma Companhia, que sustentando competentemente a cultura das vinhas do Alto Douro, conserve ao mesmo tempo as produções delas na sua pureza natural, em benefício do comércio nacional e estrangeiro, e da saúde dos meus vassalos, sem alguma despesa da minha Fazenda, antes com benefício dela e do bem comum dos meus Reinos”. Trecho do alvará de D. José I, que instituía a “Companhia Geral da Agricultura das Vinhas do Alto Douro” em 1756 (do livro “Real Companhia Velha”, Fernando Souza, página 13).
