O Google anunciou um investimento de mil milhões de dólares em África, mas será que vai beneficiar o continente a longo prazo?

My friend Lauren Sapala & I are both writers and writing coaches. We both happen to be creative introverts and INF personality types (Lauren is an INFJ, Jas is an INFP). In part 9 of our conversation series, we talked all about our *sensitivity* and how we can manage it. This one was prompted by someone asking me that very question whilst I was in Madeira over the Summer.

Olivia Scott Welch is having quite the year. Not only did she headline the Amazon series Panic, she's also part of the cast of one of the biggest releases of 2021, Netflix's Fear Street trilogy. Welch first appears in Fear Street 1994 as Sam, a high school student who finds herself right smack in the middle of the Shadyside curse. Then, in Fear Street 1666, Welch plays Hannah Miller, the local pastor's daughter who's accused of witchcraft alongside Sarah Fier (Kiana Madeira). It's a phenomenal trilogy that celebrates genre through the years while also delivering a powerful narrative about being labeled an outcast and introducing the world to a downright stellar ensemble of young stars that are bound to continue to deliver big in film and television - Welch included. With the expectation that Fear Street enthusiasm will remain sky high - yes, I'm one of the ones happy to call the films instant classics - having the two stars on Collider Ladies Night was an absolute must. We shared the conversation with Madeira a couple of weeks back and now it's time to put Welch in the Ladies Night spotlight. Hear all about Welch's experience working with Madeira and director Leigh Janiak on Fear Street, her earliest sources of inspiration, how it felt when her Nickelodeon pilot, The Dunes Club, didn't get picked up and so much more on this edition of Collider Ladies Night!

The retirement of Robert Parker marked a major change in the role of the wine critic that had been building over time. William Kelley, Reviewer of Burgundy, Champagne, English Sparkling, and Madeira for The Wine Advocate (“TWA”), gives us his thoughts on how the wine critic landscape is changing and why, the impact wine critics have on the market, and the role of TWA. Dig deep into the mind of a wine critic on this episode of XChateau. Detailed Show Notes: William's backgroundHe ran a tasting group at Oxford for 3 yearsHe was initially planning on becoming an academicHe ended up working a harvest in California in 2015Makes wine - Chenin Blanc in California (beginning in 2015), in Chambolle Musigny (beginning in 2018)Pitched a piece to Decanter and ended up becoming the North American and Burgundy editor2019 - got a call from The Wine Advocate (“TWA”) and became a reviewer thereCurrently researching a book on Burgundy that would not be an encyclopedia-style of bookThe evolving role of the wine criticTwo main trends changing the role of the wine criticThe scale of the wine world is bigger, and no one can taste everything anymore (which was possible when Robert Parker started) -> creates the need for more reviewers, more specialization, and critics living in the regions they coverThe explosion of the value of fine wine - most people can't afford luxury wines today, this makes reviewers of high-end wines dependent on the producers, whereas Parker used to buy the wines and retain the consumer perspectiveMore small niches are being created in wine mediaSubscription models are still doing well (including at TWA)Lifestyle writing is moving beyond the aspirational and anchored more in realityMost wine media jobs are occupied by people who've been doing it for a long time (little mobility, ability for new voices to come up)Many people in wine media don't make enough to make a livingPeople doing blogs are likely to go to mainstream media as people begin to retireCritic influenceConsumers spending a lot of money on wine still care which critics score the winesRetailers generally show the highest scores, regardless of who the critic isStrong/historic brands are “immune” to critic criticismHigh scores (e.g. - 100 points) still matterCedric Bouchard - gave a 2008 100 pointsHe wanted to show there's no glass ceiling for winesThis gave Bouchard feedback and recognition for his growing practices, which were counter the Champagne normEgly-Ouriet, already an established top grower Champagne, said his business increased 33% after getting 100 points100 point scores can be a disruptor of the traditional hierarchyThe business model issue with wine media - critics sell the wine but don't get a stake in the profitTWA's role in the wine worldScores are needed in the industry to sell wineTWA has become like the “Standard & Poor's” of the wine worldParker also sold a lifestyle - he had charisma, led a lifestyle of opening great wines and at well, including at events with clientsRecently launched new sustainability featuresA filter for organic and biodynamic wines (for all wines)Nominations for producers who work sustainably in an exemplary manner (a small set of producers)William reviews ~5,000 wines/year and gets to choose which wines to reviewPathways to becoming an iconic brand todayBizot never got 100 points, still an iconic, cult brandNeed the right confluence of market dynamicsScore inflationThere has been some score inflationScore compression is a bigger problem - scores are less differentiatedThis partly has to do with how people buy wine (e.g., they only buy 90+ point wines)New platforms that have an impact on the marketInstagram and WeChat are platforms that move the marketCellarTracker, Wine Berserkers are niche and don't move the market as much

Kiana Madeira's been mighty busy in this industry for a good while now, but her show stopping performance in the Fear Street trilogy feels like it's hitting a different level of notoriety — the level she deserves. With the full Fear Street trilogy available to stream on Netflix, Madeira took the time to join us for an episode of Collider Ladies Night. Yes, we go deep on those films, including getting Madeira's thoughts on the trilogy's big finish and that end credits tease, but she also looked back on her journey to those Fear Street films. We discussed how she made the move from the Canadian film industry to scoring her first Hollywood role, her run on Netflix's Trinkets, and what it was like working with one of the best casting directors in the business, Carmen Cuba. Catch what she had to say about all of that, why she knew Olivia Scott Welch was the perfect Sam during their very first chemistry read, who she thinks took the book at the end of the Fear Street trilogy and loads more in this edition of Collider Ladies Night!

Hands up if you have seen Netflix's trilogy of horror movies, Fear Street, absolutely pooped yourself AND fallen into new levels of obsession with its star, Kiana Madeira who plays the central protagonist, Deena? I knew I wasn't the only one who was obsessed SO for this very special bonus episode of Make It Reign, I am joined by the new scream queen herself, Kiana! You may have seen Kiana before in the Netflix hit, Trinkets, which follows a group of High Schoolers who end up in a Shoplifters Anonymous Group. But now she is gathering new fans by creeping us out as Deena, a teenager living in the fictional town of Shadyside for the Netflix hit Fear Street based on the books by R.L STINE.The three movies follow a group of high schoolers across three very different periods in 1994, then 1978 and finally, 1666 attempting to not only solve a murder mystery but an ancient curse. Now that's a long to-do list for one gal! One of the things I loved about the three movies was that they centre around the queer love story between Deena and her high school lover, Samantha. Isn't it about time a trilogy of films celebrate a same sex relationship without making it heavily sexualised? HELL YES! As this bonus episode lands after our Make It Reign with Pride series - where we were joined by the likes of Cara Delevingne, Samira Wiley, Courtney Act and Paris Lees - we talk about the power of representing a queer love story. Kiana also talks powerfully about her relationship with religion, how acting affected her body image and how she has learnt to take pride in her mixed heritage and finally embrace her curly hair. I loved talking to Kiana so much as she has so many amazing words about learning to love your self and others - so I hope YOU listen to this episode and give yourselves a little bit of extra love. I am now taking a little break before we drop season four BUT there *may* be a very special surprise guest coming your way in August so make sure you follow me across social media @joshsmithhosts so you are the first to know about it. TRUST ME, you won't want to miss it as I am asked every single day when this person will appear on the podcast. Thank you for taking the time to listen to Make It Reign - it means the world to me. I really hope you continue to listen and find the power to Make It Reign in your own lives, too. Until next time, WEAR THOSE CROWNS WITH PRIDE and get in touch, I love hearing from you.

Zahlreiche YouTube-Stars sind in den vergangenen Jahren nach Dubai, Madeira und Co. ausgewandert. Ein Hauptargument dafür dürften die steuerlichen Vorteile gewesen sein.

*This is an episode I published under the podcast's old title: 'the INF Club podcast'. In August 2021, I renamed the podcast 'Diary of an indie writer' (see more below). — In this episode, I read my journal entries from the 'digital nomad village' in Madeira, since I arrived here in June. —
Trainiere dein Hörverstehen mit den Nachrichten der Deutschen Welle von Freitag – als Text und als verständlich gesprochene Audio-Datei.Deutschland besiegelt neues Klimaziel Der Bundestag hat das neue Klimaschutzgesetz mit schärferen Regelungen verabschiedet. Darin ist nun das nationale Ziel verankert, bis 2045 klimaneutral zu werden - also nur noch so viele Treibhausgase auszustoßen wie wieder gebunden werden können. Ursprünglich hatte sich Deutschland die Klimaneutralität erst bis 2050 vorgenommen. Auch das Emissionsziel bis 2030 wird hochgeschraubt. Die Bundesrepublik soll bis dahin ihren Treibhausgas-Ausstoß im Vergleich zu 1990 um mindestens 65 Prozent senken. Bis 2040 soll bereits ein Rückgang um 88 Prozent erreicht sein. Bundestag beendet Rekordsitzung um halb drei Uhr Nach 17 Stunden und 30 Minuten hat der Bundestag um halb drei Uhr in der Nacht die längste Sitzung der laufenden Legislaturperiode beendet. In der Mammutsitzung wurden unter anderem Beschlüsse zu folgenden Themen gefasst: Verfolgte des Nazi-Regimes und ihre Nachfahren haben künftig Anspruch auf einen deutschen Pass; die Liste der nicht verjährenden schwersten Straftaten wurde erweitert; Internethandel mit Waffen, Drogen und Kinderpornografie sollen konsequenter bestraft werden, ebenso verhetzende Beleidigungen gegen Juden, Muslime, Homosexuelle und Behinderte. London lockert Corona-Reisebeschränkungen für Mallorca Für einige populäre Urlaubsziele werden bislang geltende Reisebeschränkungen für britische Touristen aufgehoben. Die Balearen sowie Malta und Madeira stünden ab dem 30. Juni auf der "grünen Liste", sagte Verkehrsminister Grant Shapps. Das gelte ebenso für einige britische Überseegebiete und karibische Inseln sowie Israel. - Die Ausbreitung der hochinfektiösen Delta-Variante des Coronavirus erhöht allerdings die Sorge vor reisenden Briten. Bundeskanzlerin Angela Merkel und Frankreichs Präsident Emmanuel Macron haben ihre EU-Kollegen deshalb auf dem EU-Gipfel im Brüssel zu einer harten Linie gegenüber Reisenden aus Großbritannien aufgefordert. Tote nach Tornado in Tschechien Im Südosten Tschechiens sind bei einem Tornado nach offiziellen Angaben mindestens drei Menschen ums Leben gekommen. Das Krankenhaus in Hodonin meldet zudem rund 200 Verletzte. Die Schäden in der Region sind erheblich. In der besonders betroffenen Gemeinde Hrusky sagte der stellvertretende Bürgermeister, der halbe Ort sei dem Erdboden gleichgemacht worden. Die Menschen hätten sich vor dem Unwetter nicht schützen können. Die Regierung in Prag hat alle verfügbaren Rettungskräfte ins Katastrophengebiet geschickt. Auch österreichische Krankenwagen und Rettungshubschrauber sind im Einsatz. Vermisste nach Hochhaus-Einsturz in Florida Im US-Bundesstaat Florida ist ein zwölfstöckiger Hochhauskomplex eingestürzt. Nach offiziellen Angaben kam dabei mindestens ein Mensch ums Leben, mindestens 99 werden noch vermisst. Die Bewohner der rund 130 Wohneinheiten in Surfside bei Miami Beach wurden von dem Einsturz im Schlaf überrascht. Der Gouverneur von Florida, Ron DeSantis, sagte, er erwarte "schlechte Nachrichten" von den Suchtrupps, die mit Spürhunden nach Verschütteten suchen. Der als "Champlain Tower" bekannte Hochhauskomplex wurde in den 1980er-Jahren gebaut. Über die Unglücksursache ist noch nichts bekannt. Biden verkündet Einigung mit US-Senatoren auf Infrastrukturpaket Im Ringen um ein Infrastrukturpaket von mehreren hundert Milliarden Dollar hat US-Präsident Joe Biden eine Einigung verkündet. "Wir haben einen Deal", sagte Biden nach einem Treffen mit Senatoren seiner Demokraten und der oppositionellen Republikaner im Weißen Haus. Das Infrastrukturpaket werde "Millionen amerikanischer Jobs" schaffen. - Mit seinem ursprünglich mehr als zwei Billionen Dollar schweren Infrastrukturpaket war Biden bei den Republikanern auf massiven Widerstand gestoßen. Und auch der nun gefundene Kompromiss hat noch keine sichere Mehrheit im Kongress. Trumps Anwalt verliert seine Zulassung Der Anwalt und ehemalige New Yorker Bürgermeister Rudy Giuliani hat bis auf weiteres seine Anwaltslizenz verloren. Hintergrund ist der Versuch des ehemaligen US-Präsidenten Donald Trump, den Ausgang der US-Präsidentenwahl 2020 anzugreifen. Giuliani hatte Trump dabei juristisch vertreten und "nachweislich falsche und irreführende Aussagen gegenüber Gerichten, Gesetzgebern und der Öffentlichkeit gemacht", wie ein Gericht nun feststellte. Dadurch sei der 77-Jährige eine "unmittelbare Bedrohung'' für die Öffentlichkeit.

Transmitido ao vivo em 8 de jun. de 2021 O voo 425 é o único acidente com mortes na história da companhia portuguesa TAP e o segundo mais mortal em território português. A insistência para pousar acabou ceifando a vida de 131 ocupantes no Boeing 727-200. A tragédia aconteceu no dia 19 de novembro de 1977, mas é um bom exemplo para que muitos pilotos não insistam em executar aproximações em condições marginais de meteorologia, ainda mais quando a infraestrutura é limitada. Participam do debate, os comandantes Ivan Carvalho, Amilton Camillo Ruas; e o engenheiro de voo, Edgard Santos.
Which weird food and wine pairings should you add to your must-try list? What makes wines from Oregon and California's Sierra Foothills special? How can you make sure to do well at a wine auction? In this episode of the Unreserved Wine Talk podcast, I'm chatting with Scott Greenberg, host of both “The Vine Guy” podcast and the “Wine of the Week” show on WTOP radio in Washington, DC. You can find the wines we discussed at https://www.nataliemaclean.com/winepicks. Highlights What's Scott's go-to wine for pairing with lamb? Why are foie gras and Sauterne such a classic pairing? Which surprising and delicious Madeira pairing does Scott recommend? How did Scott end up almost trespassing on Domaine Romanée Conti? What did Scott find out on a hilarious cruise ship encounter? What distinguishing characteristics do you find in wines from the Sierra Foothills region? What do you need to know before entering a wine auction? Which aspects of Oregon Pinot Noir make it stand out among the best? Who has the pandemic inspired Scott to share a bottle of wine with? Key Takeaways I enjoyed the unusual food and wine pairings Scott suggested, and I can't wait to try several of them. I liked the way Scott differentiated the Pinot Noir from Oregon as well as reds from California's Sierra Foothills. He also reminds me of the versatility of Châteauneuf-du-Pape wines. His tips on how to prepare for a wine auction are terrific. About Scott Greenberg Scott Greenberg, also known as “The Vine Guy”, is the host of the “Wine of the Week” show on WTOP radio in Washington, DC and the Vine Guy Podcast.

El vino es una de las bebidas más antiguas y la que, sin duda, más han empleado las diferentes religiones, especialmente el cristianismo. Se elabora a partir de la uva y apareció por primera vez en el Cáucaso en torno al sexto milenio antes de Cristo. Desde ahí viajó hacia el sur y, especialmente, hacia el oeste. En el mundo Mediterráneo se convirtió pronto en un elemento central de la dieta y en la base de muchos rituales religiosos. En la Grecia antigua contaban con un dios propio del vino, se llamaba Dioniso y en torno a su figura se celebraban concurridas fiestas en las que se consumía en grandes cantidades. Los romanos adoptaron a Dioniso cambiando su nombre por Baco. Las celebraciones en su honor pasaron a denominarse bacanales. El Senado terminó restringiéndolas a unas fechas muy concretas del año como las fiestas saturnales o las lupercales. De esas celebraciones paganas debidamente regadas de vino derivan los carnavales del cristianismo. Pero no sólo el mundo grecorromano usó y abusó del vino. Los judíos también se valieron de él. Fue a través de la tradición judía como entró en el cristianismo. La sangre de Cristo se transubstancia en vino que luego es consumido por los fieles en la eucaristía. Eso permitió que, incluso en épocas en las que estuvo prohibido el consumo de alcohol como los años de la ley seca en Estados Unidos, se pudiese elaborar y vender vino legalmente. Pero mucho antes de eso los europeos lo habían llevado a los cinco continentes. Los portugueses y españoles fueron los primeros es sacar las vides de Europa y plantarlas primero en Madeira y las islas Canarias y luego en ciertas zonas de América donde arraigaron muy bien. A mediados del siglo XVI ya lo estaban cultivando en el norte de México, posteriormente se lo llevaron al cono sur donde se terminó convirtiendo en uno de los cultivos tradicionales. Los británicos harían lo propio en Australia y los holandeses en Sudáfrica. En el siglo XIX el vino ya era un producto global que se consumía en todo el mundo. Desde entonces su área cultivada no ha hecho más que crecer porque el apetito por el vino también ha ido a más. El vino se produce desde Centroeuropa hasta Nueva Zelanda y de Rusia a California, pero los principales productores -Italia, España y Francia- siguen siendo los mismos que hace dos milenios. Su historia va pareja a la de Occidente. Hoy es una industria global que mueve miles de millones de euros cada año y empuja la economía de comarcas enteras del viejo y del nuevo continente. Sin vino la historia de Europa y de los pueblos de la cuenca Mediterránea hubiera sido muy distinta, algo menos sabrosa y, seguramente, mucho más aburrida.

Para comemorar o Dia Mundial do Meio Ambiente, conversamos com o Márcio Santilli e a Adriana Ramos do Instituto Socioambiental (ISA). No contexto dos ataques criminosos das últimas semanas aos Yanomamis e Mundurukus, falamos sobre atividades garimpo ilegal em terras indígenas, de extração ilegal de madeira, e do desmonte e aparelhamento do Ministério do Meio Ambiente, Ibama e do ICMBio. The post Garimpo e madeira em terras indígenas appeared first on Chutando a Escada.
Life can be a sensual experience if you let it. Experience magic, live in line with your senses, and enjoy your life. After a week in Madeira, I’m overflowing with love for this human experience. About Allowing Life to Be a Sensual Experience I’ve been spending more and more time in my mystical and spiritual pursuits, exploring the Universe and the stars, and feeling more disconnected from this human experience. Last week, I went to Madeira with some friends I met online and had what I can only describe as a magical experience. Meeting kindred spirits and experiencing that soul growth and connection together is nothing short of magic. I felt my soul return home to my human body and it was needed. As amazing as it is to traverse the stars, we chose to have this human experience, so we should experience it. It’s so easy to get stuck in this “do do do” mentality, where we’re running on programming and autopilot. What happens after a while of this, though? We get stuck in the same old dull routines where we’re not experiencing magic, breathtaking moments, and deep presence of self. This go-go-go mentality is us stuck valuing our left brain. Bur accessing and nurturing our right brain is so important. Tapping into the creative process, the meditative states, and our senses is essential for our growth and our enjoyment of life. When we have access to our senses, we’re more in tune with the flow of the universe, too. This means we can actually use our senses to help us navigate life and live in closer alignment to our soul’s path. We need these reminders that we’re human. We need to spend time with other people. We need to go on holiday or spend time in nature or find some way to break out of the mundane routine of our daily life. Can you commit to one day a week where you spend a day in nature? Let me know in the comments, lovely! In This Episode How human connection can create magic [4:30] What happens when we stay stuck in a “do do do” mode [4:45] Why we should value the right brain more than we do [6:30] How to use your senses to navigate life [9:00] Why we need reminders that we’re human [14:45] Quotes “If all that we’re ever doing is running on programming and autopilot, everything very quickly becomes mundane, routine, very structured, and disciplined. As opposed to magical and breathtaking, and deep presence in different moments.” [5:40] “It’s up to us to choose to allow ourselves to receive the beauty of life through all of our senses.” [8:16] “Sensuality is truly the merging of both. The soul and the body. The soul and the physical. The sensory experience, but knowing that the senses are your navigation through this human, physical realm until we energetically transform and meet again in a different realm.” [17:13] Resources Mentioned Join The Soul Savvy Collective Facebook Group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/soulsavvytribe) Find Sarah Flynn Online (https://sarahjflynn.com/) Follow Sarah Flynn on Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/sarahxflynn/) | Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/sarahflynncoaching) | YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC1vmQ8rg-xfhHBLvqJ8qzcA) If you liked this episode, please check out some others: Episode 45: Following the Whispers of Your Heart (https://sarahjflynn.com/episode-45-following-the-whispers-of-your-heart/) Episode 43: Lessons from Glastonbury – Failure Cannot Exist in the Pursuit of Joy (https://sarahjflynn.com/episode-43-lessons-from-glastonbury-failure-cannot-exist-in-the-pursuit-of-joy/) Episode 41: How to Trust the Universe & Your Highest Soul Path (https://sarahjflynn.com/episode-41-how-to-trust-the-universe-your-highest-soul-path/)
Esto es BlitzoCast. No es HistoCast pero casi. Recorremos de Este a Oeste y terminamos en el norte de España para hablar de una villa de pescadores y el del destino de una de las principales familias reales europeas. Os lo cuenta @goyix_salduero.
Ubicadas en una posición estratégica en el mismo corazón del océano Atlántico a caballo entre tres continentes, las islas Canarias se convirtieron desde el descubrimiento de América en un punto de paso obligado de la flota de Indias en la ruta que comunicaba el puerto de Sevilla con el emporio americano. El archipiélago, conquistado por los españoles a lo largo del siglo XV, tuvo que resistir durante cientos de años numerosos ataques piráticos patrocinados por las potencias europeas de la época y por los Estados berberiscos del norte de África. Los principales piratas de los siglos XVI y XVII, corsarios como los británicos Francis Drake, John Hawkins o Walter Raleigh, franceses como Jean Fleury o François Le Clerc, y holandeses como Pieter van der Does atacaron las Canarias sembrando el terror entre la población de diferentes islas. Eso obligó a la corona española a tomarse en serio la protección de su archipiélago más preciado y, sin duda, del más estratégico de todos. Los sucesivos monarcas ordenaron fortificar las islas y convertir a algunos de sus puertos como Santa Cruz de Tenerife en plazas prácticamente inexpugnables desde el mar tal y como pudo comprobar el contralmirante Horatio Nelson en 1797 cuando trató de apoderarse de la isla. El inglés perdió el brazo y la Royal Navy toda esperanza de hacerse con Tenerife. Pero los piratas no sólo atacaban los puertos insulares, a menudo se limitaban a merodear en alta mar cerca de las Canarias como manadas de lobos en espera de que alguna flota española mal defendida proveniente de América cargada de tesoros enfilase el tramo final de su viaje antes de embocar el río Guadalquivir. Ese triángulo formado por las Canarias, Madeira y las Azores se transformó en un lugar infestado de piratas de todas las nacionalidades, también piratas españoles como Amaro Pargo, un canario con patente de corso concedida por Felipe V de España para que limpiase el Atlántico de corsarios ingleses y holandeses hostiles al comercio español. De Amaro Pargo y otros muchos piratas que hicieron de las aguas de Canarias un campo de batalla de todas las potencias europeas vamos a hablar hoy en La ContraHistoria. Lo vamos a hacer de la mano de Carlos Pérez Simancas, un gomero de armas tomar que conoce a fondo esta historia de piratas que en nada tiene que envidiar a la del Caribe.

Throughout its 130-year-old history, the ukulele has often been underrated – for many, this tiny four stringed instrument is a musical joke, a plastic toy or a cheap airport souvenir, but in fact, some of the world's greatest musicians have played and admired it, and it has enduring associations with the struggle for Hawaiian independence since its arrival on the islands from Madeira in the late 19th century. The ukulele is also surprisingly versatile and musicians are forever involved in the challenge of expanding its repertoire, from Bach to ukulele concertos to jazz. Joining Bridget Kendall to find out more about this deceptively humble instrument is the award-winning musician Brittni Paiva, who's been described as Hawaii's pre-eminent ukulele artist; Jim Beloff, the co-founder of Flea Market Music, publishers of some of the first ukulele song books which played a key part in the modern ukulele revival, his forthcoming memoir is UKEtopia: Adventures in the Ukulele World; and Samantha Muir, a classical ukulele musician and composer, who's doing a PHD at the University of Surrey in the UK to create new works for the classical ukulele repertoire. Produced by Anne Khazam for the BBC World Service. [Image: A ukulele sitting on its side on a Hawaiian beach. Credit: McCaig via Getty Images]

Used to celebrate the drafting of the US Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, Madeira wines are the ultimate in American wines, though not made in America. Originating from shipping goods from Europe to America and being born from wines traveling that route, it became the most prominent wine in the US pre-prohibition. History, culture, and the wines' versatility benefited their relaunch in the 1990s by Bartholomew Broadbent, Owner of Broadbent Selections, which imports an array of wines from emerging regions and has its own line of Madeiras, Ports, and other wines. Learn more about the history and the journey of reintroducing a long-lost style of wine back to America in this episode of XChateau. This episode is sponsored by Repour, the simple, effective way to preserve your wine...without planning ahead. Extensively used by top sommeliers, wineries, and wine students, Repour prevents wasted wine and saves money. Please find out more at repour.com and listen to Episode 24, where CEO Tom Lutz gives us all the details on Repour. Detailed Show Notes: Bartholomew’s background in wineSon of Michael Broadbent (led wine auctions for Christie’s, Decanter Magazine writer for decades, & leading wine author)Went to Australia at 18 to work harvest, Cognac as a tour guide, worked in wine at Harrod’s in London and at Harvey’s Fine WinesHe moved to Toronto and met the Symington Family, where he spent 10 years teaching about Port & Madeira, based out of San FranciscoHe married a Virginia girl and now lives in VirginiaBroadbent SelectionsFounded in 1996The goal was to create their own brand of Port & MadeiraStarted an import company as well, which focused on emerging wine regions, including: Portugal (now just the Broadbent brands)South Africa (e.g., Eben Sadie)New Zealand (e.g., Spy Valley)Chateau Musar from LebanonGusbourne from EnglandBroadbent wines include Madeira, Port, Vinho Verde (single biggest selling wine), Douro, and Gruner Veltliner from AustriaMadeiraIt was the biggest selling wine in the US until ProhibitionInvented through shipping to America from Europe, ships stopped in Madeira (600 miles off the coast of Africa / Morocco) to re-stock; when wines accidentally made it back to Madeira and went through two journeys by sea, the wines tasted better through the heatingNow the wine style is a cooked and fortified wineLots of history around Madeira - the wine used to celebrate the Constitution and Declaration of Independence, was on the table w/ Betsy Ross sewed the American flagBenefited from a tax loophole, when the King taxed all European goods going to America, it did not cover MadeiraDestruction of the Madeira marketPhylloxera - destroyed lots of vinesProhibition - Prior, 95% of the wine was sent to the US, 5% to the UK and RussiaUpon appeal of Prohibition, shipping had improved and no longer needed to stop in Madeira for suppliesRe-launch of Madeira in the US - Bartholomew relaunched in 1989 with the SymingtonsProduction8 producers of Madeira on the island, who buy grapes from ~1,000 growersVines mostly grown on trellises with other crops underneath (there aren’t a lot of vineyards to see and visit)Two types of heating methodsEstufa - artificial heating in tanks, 3 months at 115F, mostly for the 3-5-year-old styles of winesCanteiro / Traditional - left in attics of buildings to heat; Broadbent ages in 3 locations - attic, ground floor, and basement to blend and get more complexity8 producers make lots of different brands, Broadbent made by Justino’sIsland producers ~100,000 cases/year of drinking Madeira (vs. cooking Madeira), Justino’s ~55%, Henriques & Henriques ~20%Grape varieties3 red grapes (~80%) - Tinta Negra7 white grapes - incl Sercial (grown in hills, ripens less and more acidic), Verdelho, Boal, MalmseyBoth name of grapes and style of winesDrier Madeiras partly made by adding brandy later in fermentationRainwater - needs to be a lighter styleVintage or Frasqueira Madeira - needs to be aged for 20 years before release, at least 19 years in cask and 1 year in bottle, but bottles the word “Vintage” does not appear on the label as that is trademarked by PortColheita - min 5 years of ageSelling Madeira in the US~25k cases/year in the US, #2 or 3 market globallyEngland and Japan drink a lot of Madeira, Canada also a big marketThe slowdown of sales for Port in the late 1990’s - believes due to the rise of high alcohol wines and not leaving enough capacity for fortified wine at the end of dinnerMadeira appeals to the intellect, stories tied to US history, the beauty of island and tourism, and versatility of the wine due to acidity (pairs with anything)No specific demographics for MadeiraOlder, rarer wines sold mostly at restaurantsMannie Berk of Rare Wine Company also started a Madeira brand and has done a good job of educating consumersSherry market has improved due to mixology and cocktail culture, Spanish restaurants (e.g., tapas) have also helped support itPricing of rare Madeiras has increased a lot, especially in the auction markets, as sales have depleted the stock on the islandBroadbent vs. other MadeirasMore elegance, considered one of the top brands made by Justino’sNamed in Wine & Spirits Top 100 wineries of the worldGreat sales team, including 2 Master Sommeliers, who help to sell into restaurants and retail
Vins doux naturels (VDNs), translated to ‘naturally sweet wines’, are some of the most historic yet underestimated wines in France. These wines are made using the process of mutage – adding neutral grape spirit/alcohol – to fermenting wine in order to halt fermentation and leave sugar in the wine (they aren’t REALLY naturally sweet wine, although producers will say you are preserving the natural sweetness of the wine so that’s the counterpoint). Image of Rivesaltes: WinesoftheRoussillon.com The technique of mutage was created in Roussillon in 1285 by Arnaud de Villeneuve, physician of the Royal House of Barcelona from 1281 to 1310 and a professor of the University of Montpellier. It is the same process used to make Port. Here the wine must be around 6% alcohol by volume when grape spirit is added to kill the yeast and bring the alcohol in the wine to 15-18% ABV. Wines retain sugar and this base wine can go many different directions depending on what the producer wants to present in the bottle. Although these wines can be made with more than 20 different grape varieties, two take primacy: Muscat blanc à petit grains for the white and Grenache noir for the red. Grenache is great as a young wine but can also be good if aged for years in old oak barrels, sometimes large glass jars (called bonbonnes or demi-johns) developing complexity and tertiary aromas (tobacco, saddle, mocha) Muscat has fresh, grapey aromas, and naturally high acidity so the resulting sweet wines are very balanced. These grapes get more flavor and color if the producer wants to put the juice in contact with the skins and, like the reds, they can also be aged oxidatively Vins Doux Naturels of the Languedoc We begin the show in the Languedoc, which only produces white vins doux naturels (VDNs) of the Muscat grape. Each of these wines is made from Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains and made in a non oxidative style to show the ripe fruit flavors, honeyed notes and richness contrasting with the acidity of the grape. Here are the four VDN appellations of the Languedoc, all of which are fortified with neutral grape spirit to 15% - 18% alcohol and a minimum of 11% residual sugar (Saint Jean de Minervois has a minimum of 12.5% RS). These wines are all golden in color and made of white grapes: Muscat de Saint Jean de Minervois: Vineyards are at elevation so the wines have a better balance of acidity, more elegance, and are more complex Muscat de Frontignan: the biggest area for VdN in the Languedoc, these wines range in quality but Frontignan has great historic importance as it probably contains France’s earliest vineyard sites and was certainly the country’s first VdN appellation Muscat de Lunel is small and the local co-op makes many of the wines. The best have floral honeyed notes Muscat de Mireval is right next to the coast, immediately northeast of Frontignan and the wines, dominated by co-op production are rarely seen outside of France Vins Doux Naturels of Roussillon Roussillon was incorporated into France in 1659, but before that was part of Spain, which it borders. There is a very set Catalan influence in this area, which is a hybrid of Spanish and French culture in many ways. Roussillon is shaped like an amphitheater and borders the Mediterranean Sea, the Pyrenees & the Corbières Mountains. This sunniest region of France has rivers which shape the landscape and the terroir. Roussillon is the epicenter of vins doux naturels, making 80% of all VDN. It makes white, and more interestingly, reds whose flavors you will not find anywhere else. After mutage, the VdNs are made reductively (like regular wine where you try to avoid contact with oxygen to maintain fresh flavors) or oxidatively, with exposure to air for varying lengths of time. On the wines of the Roussillon you will see the following labels: Wines that are aged without oxygen (topped off barrels/reductive) and are fruity and strong: Blanc Rosé Rimage (used for Banyuls) Grenat (used for Maury, Rivesaltes) If they have a bit of age but are still reductive you will may see recolté or vendange on the bottle Wines that are aged oxidatively in barrels that are not topped off, thus concentrating flavors and giving the wines more character (similar to tawny Port, rosé is never aged this way, BTW) Ambré: Whites that are oxidatively aged Tuilé: Reds that are oxidatively aged Rancio: VERY rare category of wine. Either whites or reds aged for so long that they taste almost like Madeira. They are aged in glass bonbonnes/demi-Johns that are kept outside or in attics to gain exposure to the temperature extremes to intensify flavor Hors d’Age: Anything aged more than 5 years before release, normally oxidatively aged Vins Doux Naturel aging in bonbonnes Image Source: Vig'nette Roussillon Wines/Areas Muscat de Rivesaltes can be made two Muscat varieties blended in varying ratios: Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains (blend must be at least 50%) which contributes aromas of tropical, citrus fruits (lemon) Muscat of Alexandria which offers aromas and flavors of flowers, herbs (mint) and peaches The wine mellows over time to have honeyed, baked fruit flavors Rivesaltes is France's largest sweet-wine appellation, in terms of area and volume. Rivesaltes wines are blends or single varieties. Grenache Blanc, Grenache Gris, Grenache Noir and Macabeu are the main grapes used When made from white varieties they can be Rivesaltes Ambré (nutty and caramelized), rancio (Madeira-like, baked notes) or Hors d’Age (aged 5+ years) Rivesaltes Rosé is a fresh, fruity wine made mainly of Grenache Noir. It is aged reductively Rivesaltes Rouge is made mainly of Grenache Noir. It can be Grenat (reductive), Tuilé (oxidative) and for rare bottles, rancio and hors d’age when oxidatively aged Maury Doux is in northern Roussillon on steep limestone cliffs at the beginning of the Pyrenees foothills. Maury's vins doux naturels are produced mainly from the Grenache grape varieties. Maury Blanc is made with mainly Grenache Blanc and Grenache Gris and aged reductively. There are oxidative versions -- Maury Ambré and Hors d’Age Maury Rouge is made with a minimum of 75% Grenache noir with Grenache Blanc, Gris, Carignan, Syrah, Macabeu (max 10%). Similar to Rivesaltes, there are Grenat, Tuilé, hors d’age, and rancio versions. Wines labeled with récolte, vendangeor vintage must have aged a minimum of 12 months in an airtight environment, making them a nonoxidative style of VDN. Image of Maury: WinesoftheRoussillon.com Banyuls is one of the world's very few fortified red wines. Its best sites are on steep slopes or narrow terraces facing the sea. All Banyuls are made mainly from Grenache grapes of various colors. Banyuls Rouge is required to be at least 50% Grenache Noir. These wines are the best pairings with all manner of chocolate. These classifications are different from Rivesaltes and Maury Rimage is aged reductively and bottled early. It has black fruit and chocolate flavors Rimage Mis Tardive is Rimage that is aged for 1-3 years Banyuls Tuilé, rancio, and hors d’age are aged oxidatively Banyuls Blanc is made with Grenache blanc and Grenache Gris. It can be ambré, rancio, and hors d’age Banyuls Rosé is young and fresh, made of Grenache Noir and reductive Banyuls Grand Cru is at least 75% Grenache that is aged for a minimum of 30 months in oak – so all are slightly oxidized. They can be labeled dry/sec/brut (all are ok to use) as long as it has
