During this project, Georges and Anja are traveling through 22 countries around the world, collecting wine bottles from participating wineries. All bottles will be shipped back to California where an auction will be held at the Mondavi Winery in 2011. All proceeds from the auction will be donated to the Lao Rehabilitation Foundation which works to improve the life of children, among other causes. The funds raised by the auction in 2011 will go to help rebuild a school destroyed by massive flooding of the Mekong River in 2008.
Wines From India ‘I hope you are doing well! I would like to inform you that we will be landing in India tomorrow and we were wondering if in the coming two weeks you will be by chance in Mumbai area. That would give us a great chance to meet with you, while we are there for our wine mission to gather wine bottles for charity and learn as much as possible on the Indian wine market!’ said an email from Anja to our editor, Mr. Subhash Arora last Friday.
Wine Club India Regrettably, Mr. Arora may not be able to meet them as he is away to Verona as one of the international judges for the Vinitaly Concorso being held from 29th March- 2nd April. But delWine will cover the Indian leg of the tour in detail and also the event organized by their media sponsors, Ambrosia on April 1 at the JW Marriott Hotel where several wine industry stalwarts will be present to interact with Anja and Georges. Although it is getting fairly warm in Mumbai, one hopes they will still be able to taste some of the fruit on the vines and catch the tail end of the harvest in Nashik. Members of the Delhi Wine Club (Mumbai) will also have an opportunity to meet them and understand from a closer distance how a wine appassionato can be driven in various ways.

Yarra Yering Winery, Yarra Valley, Australia: Current Releases The greatest wines of the world are undeniably a product of place, embodying the particular constellation of elements that can be captured by the seeking roots and waving leaves of a grapevine. But some very special wines are as much a product of intense passion and vision as they are of a specific terroir. Someone must choose the land, must drive the posts, must plant the vines, and of course, make the wine.
The Wine Society Of India These actions can be done with ordinary dedication or with extraordinary insight, and their results vary accordingly. As I journey through my adventure as a wine lover, I find increasingly that some of the most extraordinary wines on earth are also made by some of its most extraordinary individuals -- people whose sense of what they want from wine lies beyond the realm of common sense, tradition, or, occasionally, even sanity.
Wines From India Doctor Bailey Carrodus was, in the truest sense of the clichÃ©, a renaissance man. Both a biologist and oenologist by training, he earned his doctorate at Oxford studying plant physiology, and traveled around Europe exploring its greatest vineyards before returning home to Australia to make a life, and a life's work for himself. That work began with the search for a site to plant a vineyard and build a home.

Wineries are tapping into eco-friendly trends Because wine follows trends like other entertainment products, it's no surprise that savvy growers, as well as marketers, are picking up on eco-friendly practices to appeal to consumers. Among those leading the way: Badger Mountain vineyard in Washington state and Benziger in Sonoma, Calif.
Wineries In India A FEW YEARS ago, I was invited to deliver the keynote address to the annual meeting of Washington wine-grape growers. This is a group of more than 300 vineyard owners who oversee the roughly 35,000 acres of wine grapes in Washington state. More than a few of them also make and market wine.
The Wine Society Of India Although they obviously have an agricultural perspective, I set out to convince them that they were in the entertainment business, too. Even those who simply grow and sell grapes, without having to make or market the wines, are bound to the fortunes of the wines that result from their efforts. If a vineyard consistently produces grapes that end up in highly rated, award-winning wines, the prices and demand for those grapes will rise. If it goes the other way, well, that contract may not be renewed.

Wineries In India Wine is her passion, and she has turned what was once a hobby into a business called Travels in Wine Tours. They typically feature daylong, behind-the-scenes visits to three area wineries throughout Buncombe, Rutherford and Polk counties, complete with tours, tastings and a barbecue lunch.

Winery In India Winemaker Yaakov Berg has a recycled winery under his land. Hewn out of stone in the days of Jerusalem's Second Holy Temple, it holds an ancient wine press now flanked by oak barrels in which Mr. Berg's best wines are aging. Above ground stands the home vineyard of his Psagot Winery—a player in an unexpected wine reawakening, after a slumber since biblical times, as the Judean Hills become an Israeli wine region to reckon with.
Vineyards In India The 32-year-old Mr. Berg lives with his wife and two sons a few steps from this vineyard in a converted rail freight car, in the Israeli settlement of Psagot on the West Bank. During a visit to his vineyard among the stony hills near Ramallah, a muezzin's call to prayer sounded from a nearby minaret—a stark reminder of the struggle over this land, to which Mr. Berg believes he is rooted through wine.
