California wine people have a saying, it is said: " Napa is King. " Most often they are talking about the Cabernet Sauvignon wine from the Napa Valley. Long regarded as the best fruit area, grapes were planted as early as 1838. Affluent Traveler Jack Maraffi gives you the names of the very top vineyards. Comprising only 4% of wines grown in California, wine guru Robert Parker says that most of the wines there are "outstanding'.Watch The Complete Episodes of ArtTV on AppleTV, Roku, and Verizon ConnectedTV Devices.

Having been a XXXXXX, she learned of the “lifestyle” of wine and it was “Katie bar the door”. With both guns drawn, Paige set out to share her passion of wine through photography in the Napa Valley. Originally for no charge, she began re-imagining the social presence of Napa wineries. Thus a career was born. Now she not only handles social networking and photography for wineries and her own blog, she has created an on-line class on how to become a wine influencer (yes, you can become a wine influencer.)

“Civilizations die from suicide, not by murder.” Arnold Toynbee, Study of History “The tyranny of majorities may be as bad as the tyranny of kings.” Economist Arthur Balfour How To Insulate Yourself From The Orwellian Era with Doug Casey The nature of the US has been transformed. Many Americans have come to see the government as a cornucopia that can kiss everything and make it better. Millions in the US also believe that their beliefs should be forcefully pushed upon the masses. What kind of society will come from this change in beliefs? How can you attain maximum freedom in a world where so many willingly plead for their own enslavement? Best-selling author, world-renowned speculator, and brilliant libertarian philosopher Doug Casey returns to the Outer Limits of Inner Truth for the fifth time. Casey offers his latest worldview perspectives and shares a lot of great ideas on how to insulate yourself from the Orwellian Era. Doug Casey has garnered a well-earned reputation for his erudite (and often controversial) insights into politics, economics, and investment markets. Doug is widely respected as one of the preeminent authorities on “rational speculation,” especially in the high-potential natural resource sector. Doug wrote the book on profiting from periods of economic turmoil: his book Crisis Investing spent weeks as #1 on the New York Times bestseller list and became the best-selling financial book of 1980 with 438,640 copies sold; surpassing big-caliber names, like Free to Choose by Milton Friedman, The Real War by Richard Nixon, and Cosmos by Carl Sagan. He has been a featured guest on hundreds of radio and TV shows, including David Letterman, Merv Griffin, Charlie Rose, Phil Donahue, Regis Philbin, Maury Povich, NBC News, and CNN; has been the topic of numerous features in periodicals such as Time, Forbes, People, and the Washington Post; and is a regular keynote speaker at FreedomFest, the world's largest gathering of free minds. Doug has lived in 10 countries and visited over 175. He currently spends most of his time in Argentina and Uruguay, and traveling to various dysfunctional hellholes. Today you're most likely to find him at La Estancia de Cafayate, an oasis tucked away in the high red mountains outside Salta, Argentina. Cafayate most resembles the isolating beauty of Bryce Canyon, Utah combined with the lush vineyards of Napa Valley. Residents enjoy economic and social freedoms not found in the US and some of the best wine and golf on the planet. Website Link:

There's wine grapes being grown in San Francisco. In Part 2, Christopher tells us all about the 280 Project, a viticulture apprenticeship and wine school. He partnered with a winemaker from Napa, a professor at UC Davis, and others back at home to bring BIPOC, LGBTQIA, and people who feel marginalized and want to learn anything at all about wine together to do just that. The 280 Project is a very hands-on adventure, with apprentices taking frequent field trips, learning how grapes are grown from the ground-up. They also cover winemaking as well as the financial side of things. Then we take a walk through Alemany Farm, starting with their outdoor kitchen. Christopher talks about the importance of location for the farm and kitchen, situated as it is between a gentrifying and affluent neighborhood and a housing project. To the south and east, it's a virtual food desert, with corner stores and chain fast-food most abundant. Up the hill in Bernal Heights, it's quite a different story. We chat about the idea of using parts of Golden Gate Park to cultivate the land and grow food for the people. It's what some call "food parks," and it's not as radical an idea as you might think. Another project Christopher is working on is a Black indigenous seed bank, which he tells us about. Besides providing seeds, it would be a repository of people and their food stories and histories. Count us on board for that. Then our tour takes us up to the vines, appropriately. We end our little journey at the greenhouse. We want to thank Christopher for his time talking with us and showing us around. Shout out to Isaiah Powell of Dragonspunk GRO for introducing us to Christopher and the 280 Project.

Balsamic vinegar is a ubiquitous ingredient in restaurant kitchens and food markets around the world. But choosing the right balsamic vinegar can be overwhelming as there are dozens of varieties, each one coming from a different producer, bearing a different label and different bottle shape. Acclaimed Chef Marc Forgione of the iconic wood-fired destination Peasant, the eponymous Restaurant Marc Forgione, and the recently opened One Fifth, fell in love in balsamic vinegar at a young age and shares how, like a fine wine, the longer a balsamic vinegar is aged, the more deep and complex its flavors will be. He also opens up about his culinary career and the legacy of his father, Larry Forgione (known as “The Godfather” of American Cuisine). Sparrow Lane Vinegars is dedicated to producing premium, handcrafted vinegars from California's Napa Valley. Sparrow Lane's April Mesa and Walter Nicolau reveal the humble beginnings of the label and explain how the vinegars are carefully crafted.Follow @MarcForgione @restaurant_marc_forgione @peasantnyc @onefifthnycc @sparrowlanevinegar @vinegarchef @wherechefesshop @ingredientinsidersIn partnership with The Chefs' Warehouse, a specialty food distributor that has been purveying high-quality artisan ingredients to chefs for over 30 years @wherechefsshop https://www.chefswarehouse.com/Produced by Haynow Media @haynowmedia http://haynowmedia.com

It's Monday, Let's raise a glass to the beginning of another week. It's time to unscrew, uncork or saber a bottle and let's begin Exploring the Wine Glass! Today, I am bringing you something special for Halloween. There is a lot of history tied to wine and wineries and where there is history, there are stories of ghosts. I love ghost stories. I have been known to try to call out ghosts, much to the embarrassment of my husband and friends. I have requested specific rooms that ghosts have been reported to frequent. In the end, I have come to the conclusion that I am just too eager for the ghosts, because they never show themselves to me. But there is always another hotel or winery, so I'll keep trying!

A recent article by Colman Andrews titled Paradise Lost: The Flame Out of Napa Valley's Iconic Wine Country raised a number of eyebrows in Northern California. The article's main themes being that the Valley's growth has lessened its charm and that corporatization has made visits to Napa Wineries too expensive for most people.I just recently attended the 18th annual Wine & Spirits Top 100 tasting at the City View at Metreon in San Francisco. This was the first public wine tasting I have attended in several years (we all know why) and that reluctance to attend public events was the sentiment of so many other attendees that I met and talked with over the evening. I offer some observations of how public wine tastings are changing and for the most part for the better. Peg Melnik pens a nice piece highlighting pioneering Italian winegrowers in Sonoma County. Not everybody is selling out. It's refreshing to see these families holding onto their traditions and successfully passing the business of winemaking onto their descendants. Bill and I discuss these items and more in this week's addition of VinoWeek. Thanks to everyone for listening. Cheers! Our wine recommendation this week is the 2017 Vigneti Massa Derthona. Derthona is the age-old name of Tortona, a village in southeast Piedmont, in the northwest region of Italy. Derthona is Timorasso, a grape that had all but been abandoned until Walter Massa recognized its potential to make compelling wines. Up until the eighties Timarasso vines had been pulled and replanted with Cortese and Chardonnay which were easier to sell and more popular at the time. Massa began working with Timorasso vineyards he could find and also began planting new Timorasso vineyards in the eighties and nineties. This 100%Timorasso is a mix of several vineyards around the village of Monleale, although it should be noted that Massa also produces three vineyard designated Timorasso bottlings. It's fermented using indigenous yeast, receives skin contact for 48 to 60 hours beforehand and battonage after fermentation in stainless steel and concrete vats. He holds the wine for six months after bottling as Timorasso can be quite shy and unexpressive when young. With bottle age it comes around and begins to display its powerful and concentrated flavors. In the glass the color is a bright vibrant gold. The aromas show yellow fruit, honeyed almonds and beeswax. On the palate more of the afore mention flavors the wine is intensely rich and unctuous with surprising freshness and acidity and a medium length finish. Given the substantial structure of this wine I suggest you pair it with rich chicken and pork dishes or fondue. When Massa started this rediscovery of Timorasso there were just a handful of hectares planted. Today there are more than 150 hectares planted in the Colli Tortonesi DOC (Tortona hills). This is a wine you will probably have to hunt down. Unless you're working with a specialty wine retailer you'll have to source it over the internet. Having said that if your your looking for a new distinctive high quality wine to experience and learn about then don't miss out on Walter Massa's Derthona. 13.5% alc 5,000 cases $32 - $39

Next week should be exciting for a couple of reasons: First, I will be speaking at the Florida Restaurant and Lodging Association's Show in Orlando, Florida. For those of you that will be there, make sure you come see my session on November 3rd where I will explore how web3 is changing the landscape of restaurants. Don't know what #web3 is? Want to learn more about NFTs, cryptocurrency and actually see the metaverse in action? Most importantly, do you want to know how this is impacting the hospitality industry from the large chains down to the “mom and pops?” This is the session you DON'T want to miss! Now, for those of you not attending, that probably means, if you are an operator, you will be at the https://www.murtecsummit.com/ (MURTEC Executive Summit) in Napa Valley. Why, oh why, did these two events have to happen on the same exact days? I have been waiting to go to Napa for that show for a couple of years now, ever since it was first announced during COVID. Oh well, you will all have a great time without me, I am sure. Just make sure you don't have too much fun… you will make me even more jealous! The show today was recorded live at the https://www.menchesbros.com/ (Menches Bros.) NFT minting party in Green, Ohio. Yep, you heard me right. This is the mom and pop that I have been talking about quite a bit lately and you have seen in the industry news channels. If you want to hear my original podcast about this initiative, go back and listen to https://skipkimpel.com/tech-chef/mom-and-pop-launches-nft/ (Episode 58) where I have https://www.linkedin.com/in/daniellekimble/ (Dani Kimble), CMO for https://www.menchesbros.com/ (Menches Bros.) on the show. During that discussion, she talked about her Uncle John. Well, I was fortunate enough to sit down with John Menches, CEO of https://www.menchesbros.com/ (Menches Bros). to go into more depth about this project and why they felt that this little hamburger joint was the perfect concept for a NFT project. During this conversation, I learned a whole lot more about John, the family and other interesting facts other than being the originator and creator of the hamburger back in 1885.

“Farming,” according to poet Brett Brian, “is a profession of hope.” On this week's show, we introduce you to sons and daughters of the soil who are living their dreams on the land. We begin in St. Tammany Parish with Monica Bourgeois and Neil Gernon, founders of the small-batch wine company, Vending Machine Wines. The New Orleans couple has been making wine in Napa Valley since 2009, operating the business from their native Louisiana. Their newest venture, WIld Bush Farm & Vineyard finds the two overhauling 13 acres of a former winery in the rural Northshore town of Bush. There, Monica and Neil hope to create a perfect location for winemaking in our state. Then, we visit JD Farms in Poplarville, Mississippi, where Donald Van De Werken and Jeff Brown have been growing the biggest, sweetest, best blueberries in the region. Unsweetened blueberry juice is just one of a myriad of products they've created with their short but delicious annual crop. Finally, we speak with Philip Jones, sixth generation chairman and CEO of Jones Dairy Farm in Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin. The ingredients that make up their signature breakfast sausage are the same today as they were when his forebearer Milo C. Jones founded the company in 1889. It may surprise you to learn that their products have been a favorite on Louisiana breakfast tables for almost a century.
After attending business school at The University of Delaware and going to Grad school at the Culinary Institute of America, Aaron Ratner put his education and experience right to work. Immediately after graduating the CIA in Napa Valley, Aaron opened up The Blue Chicken based out of Smorgasburg in NYC. After a successful launch, Aaron continued to expand the brand until March of 2020. When the Pandemic hit, Aaron decided to shut down The Blue Chicken and take some time to regroup and find out what was next. After months of hard work, Aaron decided to launch a brand new burger joint called Paper Plate this past April. After a successful summer of a mobile business, Aaron is excited to be opening up Paper Plate's first permanent location inside Williamsburg Market in early November.

ABOUT TAMERA MOWRY-HOUSLEY, AND YOU SHOULD SIT DOWN FOR THISEarly in her debut memoir, YOU SHOULD SIT DOWN FOR THIS: A Memoir about Life, Wine, + Cookies (Legacy Lit, 10/4/22), author Tamera Mowry-Housley invites readers to imagine themselves popping over to her Napa Valley home, sitting down in her kitchen after a welcoming hug, surrounded by the smell of freshly baked cookies and having a cup of tea. And that's precisely what reading You Should Sit Down for This feels like: catching up with an old friend over a lovely Earl Grey and too many cookies!Tamera Mowry-Housley broke onto the scene as the beloved TV star-one half of the memorable duo on the hit show Sister, Sister, and co-host of the FOX talk show The Real. Tamera's spunky Sister, Sister character stole the hearts of millions; however, the transition in the public eye from a teenage star to a grown woman with a family and thriving career wasn't easy. Being raised in Hawaii as an army brat instilled in her the discipline needed to succeed and conquer her dreams, but she felt secluded and sheltered and wondered if living on her terms would ever be her reality. Then, through gumption and grit, she decided it would. By harnessing her inner strength, Tamera stopped letting other people define her, tapped into her faith, and tossed away negativity to hone her own happiness and create a unique path forward for herself. She imparts her brand of wisdom-her Tameraisms-throughout the book and encourages readers to learn from her journey.In You Should Sit Down for This, Tamera opens up about:● exiling herself from the world of beauty pageants● the pressures of being a teenage star● her struggle with rejection● the craziness of dating later in life● the challenges of balancing family and career● why it's okay for women to hide out in their closets when they just need a few minutes of peace. and much more!In You Should Sit Down for This, Tamera is the fun-loving, wisdom-sharing girlfriend we all need in our lives-one who is always ready to top off your wine! A must-read for Tamera's millions of fans, whether they grew up watching her on Sister Sister and Tia & Tamera, or fell in love with her on The Real, the book is a lighthearted and delightful glimpse into the life of a much-loved actor. Tamera will leave readers feeling liberated and motivated to embrace the highs and lows of growing up in a book that celebrates cookies and the juicy parts of life. You Should Sit Down for This is a much-needed reminder of the magic that can happen when we open our minds and hearts to become the best versions of ourselves.ABOUT TAMERA MOWRY-HOUSLEYTamera Mowry-Housley is an Emmy award-winning host, actress, producer, and entrepreneur who has captivated audiences for over 20 years. Tamera started her career in Hollywood on the hit show Sister, Sister which earned her an NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Actress in a Comedy Series. As an adult, Tamera co-hosted the groundbreaking and Emmy-winning talk show, The Real, for six seasons. Together, the ladies won the "Outstanding Entertainment Talk Show Host" Emmy at the 45th Daytime Emmy Awards.

Pulling Water From Thin Air? It's Materials Science, Not Magic. You've probably seen a magic trick in which a performer makes a playing card, coin, or even a rabbit appear out of thin air. Writing in the journal Nature Communications, researchers at UT Austin describe an experiment where they seem to pull water out of dry air—but it's not magic, and it's not a trick. Carefully applied materials science and engineering allows the team to extract as much as six liters of water per day from one kilogram of their polymer, even in areas with 15% humidity. That's drier than the Sahara Desert. The material itself contains two main ingredients. First, a konjac gum, which can be found in Asian cooking, rapidly absorbs water from the air. (In scientific terms, it's a “hygroscopic material.”) The second ingredient, hydroxypropyl cellulose, responds dramatically to changes in temperature. So at lower temperatures, the team's polymer film absorbs water, but can rapidly release that water when the film is heated by the sun or artificial heating. Dr. Guihua Yu, a professor of materials science and mechanical engineering at UT Austin and one of the authors of the report, joins Ira to talk about the material, its applications, and what challenges remain before it can be put into widespread use. An AI Partnership May Improve Breast Cancer Screenings Reading a mammogram is a specialized skill, and one that takes a lot of training. Even expertly-trained radiologists may miss up to 20% of breast cancers present in mammograms, especially if a patient is younger or has larger, denser breasts. Researchers have been working since the advent of artificial intelligence to find ways to assist radiologists in making more accurate diagnoses. This July, a German research team, publishing in The Lancet Digital Health, found that when AI is used to help sort mammograms into low, uncertain, and high risk categories, a partnership between the radiologist and the algorithm leads to more accurate results. To explain how this result may be translated into real clinical settings, Ira talks to Harvard's Constance Lehman, a longtime researcher in the field of breast imaging. She talks about the promise of AI in breast cancer screening, its limitations, and the work ahead to ensure it actually serves patients. A Smoky Aftertaste: Keeping Wildfires Out Of Your Wine Glass Readers who love wine: It's time to have a serious talk. California, Washington and Oregon are three of our largest wine-producing states. They're also some of the states most prone to wildfires. The West Coast is in the midst of its wildfire season, which makes us wonder: How does smoke impact the wines that come from this region? And what could this mean for those who enjoy a Napa Valley merlot, or an Oregon pinot noir? There's an area of food science research dedicated to answering these questions. Factors like the length of smoke exposure, the chemical composition of that smoke, and the type of wine being created all factor into how the final wine product tastes. The best side of a smoked wine spectrum is a mild campfire flavor. The bad side is burning tires. Joining Ira to talk about how scientists are working to better understand how wildfire smoke impacts wine is Dr. Cole Cerrato, assistant professor of food science at Oregon State University in Corvallis, Oregon. Artemis Update: What Will It Take To Make It Back To The Moon? Sixty years ago this week, President John F. Kennedy gave an historic address at Rice University, in which he laid down a challenge to the nation and the world. “But why, some say, the moon? Why choose this as our goal? And they may well ask why climb the highest mountain? Why, 35 years ago, fly the Atlantic? Why does Rice play Texas? We choose to go to the moon. We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too.” Six decades later, going to space is still hard. This week, a flight of Blue Origin's ‘New Shepard' rocket experienced ‘an anomaly' during a launch, triggering the escape system for the capsule (which, thankfully, was uncrewed.) And the Artemis 1 mission, the first test flight of America's planned return to the moon, is on hold while a leaking fuel line is addressed. Dr. John Blevins, the chief engineer for the Space Launch System, the massive rocket powering the Artemis 1 flight, joins Ira to provide an update on the mission, and why, after 60 years, the trip to the moon still contains so many challenges to be overcome. This Astrophysicist Holds Star Data In The Palm Of Her Hand When you look into the sky, the space between stars looks empty and void—but it isn't. That's where stars are born. And since astronomers and astrophysicists can't reach these stellar nurseries, they rely on data collected by telescopes to peer into space. But what if you could hold part of the galaxy in their hands? Or peer into an orb and see the birthplace of stars? By combining astrophysics and art, that's exactly what Dr. Nia Imara does. She's a visual artist and assistant professor of astronomy at UC Santa Cruz, based in Santa Cruz, California. Imara talks with Ira about studying stellar nurseries, how she creates stellar nursery spheres, and what she can learn from holding them in her hand. Transcripts for each segment will be available the week after the show airs on sciencefriday.com.
