www.winesensetv.com From the episode "So You Don't Like Chardonnay", Mark Davidson, host of Wine Sense Australia, speaks with Vanya Cullen about biodynamic winemaking and what makes Margaret River Australia a phenomenal place for Chardonnay.
Daniel chats with his main mentor, Jenny Dobson, over some coffee at her home near Rissington, in the hills of Hawkes Bay.

EPISODE SYNOPSIS: Today we speak with one of the importing pioneers of the the wine world, Alex Guarachi. Up to 20 years ago, Chilean wines were largely unheard of in the states, until the exporting business headed by Guarachi, TGIC Importers, began expanding the market for South American brands in America. Though Chile is now widely recognized as one of the greatest wine producers in the world, the road to get here has been full of hard work for Alex, and he shares some of his history with us. In addition to detailing the growing global market for Chilean wine, Alex shares about his own family imprint, Guarachi Family Wines. We also discuss other trends, upstarts, and unsung heroes in the wine world with an eye on the future and glass full of lovely wine. GUEST BIO: Alex Guarachi hails from Santiago, Chile. One of eight children, wine, some of the best from his homeland, was a staple on the dinner table. When Alex made the pilgrimage from Chile to the US, those wines were nowhere to be found. The entrepreneur vowed to change that and TGIC, Thank God It's Chilean, was born. America had not been formally introduced to Chilean wines, and Alex seized the opportunity of this virtually untapped market. In 1985, through resources of his own, he managed to purchase his first container of Chilean wine. TGIC Importers, Inc. was officially open for business. What began as a one-man show operating out of Alex's dimly lit garage has grown into a multi-million dollar company boasting ...
I think I'm letting a good secret out of the bag by letting the world know about The Fairfax at Embassy Row. I could have some serious gossip sessions in their lounge, huddled up in the little side banquettes, ordering $5 martinis and lamb appetizers off the Speak Easy menu. The Frugal Socialite, aka, Lucinda Hughes, attended the fifth dinner of the festival and has a new favorite wine to add to the palate. I loved meeting Maria Ponzi, the elegant, yet hip lady who's running things at Ponzi Vineyards, near Portland Oregon. For more about Ponzi, Pinot Noir and to find out why her father rates high on my list of trendsetters, see my blog at www. frugalsocialite.com. Reasons to get a ticket to the last few dinners of the Capital Wine Festival: 1. No lines, schlepping booth to booth, nor fighting crowds 2. Sip like a VIP in a small setting with really interesting wine lovers, hobnobbing with winemakers from Oregon, Italy, and California. 3. Four course dinner, choreographed to dance perfectly with a wine partner per course. Some of the dishes? The largest, sweetest jumbo shrimp I've ever had, stuffed with crab, colorful beet salad with a goat cheese mousse, striped bass sitting lovely atop a solid potato gratin---a few indulgences by Chef Mark Timms. 4. Hip, new and on trend winemakers who actually work the room and want to talk with you. 5. No Hassle Parking! Pull up, valet and get movin'. 6. Not stuffy 7. Rooms upstairs to ooh, la, la after the tipsy comes over you 8 ...
He has been called a restless genius; others have been less charitable in their characterizations of Angelo Gaja (pronounced GUY-YAH). Gaja is a fourth generation winegrower from Barbaresco, one of Italy's premier wine districts in Piedmont in northern Italy. As controversial as Angelo Gaja is, nobody disputes his great talents as a winemaker or his ability to generate interest in his wines. Gaja in his relatively short career has become the highest profile grower in Piedmont as well as Italy's most famous winemaker. He has accomplished this through consummate skill at both winemaking and public relations. He describes himself as "vain"; we translate that to mean that he is not the least bit reluctant to be an unabashed publicist for his own wines. Gaja has traveled extensively throughout the world hyping the Gaja name while also trying to learn more about how he might apply new technology in order to improve his own wines. He first visited California for this purpose in 1974, and it is presumed that it was there that he became fascinated with the "barrique" concept - the idea of aging his reds in small oak barrels. He has broken new ground in many areas, and even his critics begrudgingly admit that the results speak for themselves. Gaja is now regarded as Piedmont's leading producer of Barbaresco, and his wines command prices that rival those charged anywhere in the world.
Episode 1; Part 39: "Poetry in Retrospect" - 'Fables' some lightly-allegorical allusive darkness... - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - I. A seamstress fixed the whole town's clothes, but wore a tattered dress. The moral of this, I suppose - Prioritize thy mess. II. A winemaker's own vintage port was favored by the many, but he himself was not the sort to ever sample any. III. A Gypsy played at free and wise, while gazing at her sphere of rock, but saw therein her own demise and perished from the shock. IV. A swordsmith, in his fiery pit, forged one blade with a father's pride. He could not help but brandish it, and in that duel, he died. V. The poet struggles through disease, recording what his senses crown. His readers laugh at the un-ease which drags his spirit down. VI. To be, or not to be? presents a problem there's no answer to - be murdered by one's failed attempts, or seek no noble task to do? VII. You work these ironies, at length, to show that value's gone from life. I know your Love will give you strength, and shield you from your strife. My love is yours ( ...and your love, mine! ) though we love different Gods, and we don't love each other, and our families are at odds. I speak of your Love; ( bless her soul ) I have the boldness to. I seek to share her every goal. She's just a girl, to you. She said your spirit's never tamed, and mine's a tireless shrew. I just cursed heaven, cried and claimed: "I NEED HER ...

(While the tour is in Spanish, I have summarized it below. If you are interested in hearing it in Spanish and reading the CC, please hit the CC button in the video control bar.) In this video, Salvador talks about how, while Spain is second in production of wine worldwide behind France, it is one of least wine-consuming of the wine-producing countries in the world. He then moves on to discuss the type of terroir, the slate and quartz soil known as Llicorella, which we all were able to feel in our wine tasting. We also talked about "Poda en Verde," green pruning, which refers to removing canes before they have hardened, and which is done to better control production. At the end, Salvador speaks of his favorite tool as a winemaker, a tool which allows him to push down the cap in the fermentation tanks to help extract color and aromas from the grapes. Wonderful visit to Celler Burgos Porta of Poboleda, Priorat, Spain near Tarragona. Salvador, the owner and Conxita, his partner and wife have created an authentic experience full of passion and knowledge for their beautiful poppy covered vineyards and winery. They have great wines,under the name Massinen, all over 90+ pts. For more information, visit them at www.massinen.com or call for a reservation at +34 696 094 509.
