It’s a vague question, and I imagine the answer that they’re seeking is something along the anodyne lines of, “It’s a great wine industry with wonderful wines,” etc.
Vineyards In India But this question did get me to thinking about what I really think about Argentina’s wine industry. My first, knee-jerk, instinct was to focus on the domination of really big wine companies in both Chile and Argentina, such as Chilean giant Concha y Toro and, in Argentina, the likes of Peñaflor (Trapiche), which exports nearly 2.3 million 12-bottle cases annually, or Bodegas Esmeralda (Alamos, Catena), which exports more than 1.6 million cases. Mind you, those figures don’t even account for their almost equally substantial in-country sales.
Wineries In India Clearly, the big boys are present, and there’s no disputing their equally outsized influence—much of which is admirable, it should be noted. But living here in Argentina has made me realize something that had not previously coalesced in my mind: the importance of what might be called “exotic” wineries. The term is deliberately chosen and is, I recognize, an unusual one. Allow me to explain.

The Naramata Bench Wineries Association introduced its new wines in Vancouver and Victoria in April, anticipating the upcoming Okanagan Spring Wine Fest.
Winery In India Roll Out The Barrels! However the Naramata Bench Wineries Association, a collection of fifteen wineries on the eastern shore of Okanagan Lake above Penticton, jumped the gun a tad by having two new release events called "Afterglow" in Vancouver and Victoria, April 12-14.
Vineyards In India There are several plateaus or benches around the village of Naramata (2,000), perfect for fruit and viniculture. It is the cul-de-sac of the Okanagan wine growing community; most wineries being on the western side of the lake on the north-south run from Kelowna to Osoyoos. Although off the beaten track, Naramata must not be forgotten, as the release offerings proved. The summer afternoon sun reflecting off the lake means the fruit has long hot days and cool nights to ripen.

April 19, 2010, 8:50AM About four interviews and one trip through Virginia and North Carolina wineries behind in terms of posting.
Wines Of India Easier to simply post this weekend's notes from the New York Grape & Wine Foundation now, and then one by one post the interviews between my work schedule today.
Winery In India Three notes of interest in the weekly e-letter from New York foundation director Jim Trezise. One has to do with the number of new wineries opening in New York: now topping 280 across the state. The second relates to a new app on travel information related to the Finger Lakes that you'd like to think could be replicated elsewhere. And, finally, mention of more money for Virginia wineries and the passage of the Moderization Act in Maryland.
