The call of the wild

The call of the wild | Grande Passione | Scoop.it
But now this desire for ever more obscure ferments seems to have taken hold across the Atlantic. Experienced restaurant-going friends just back from southern California reported recently that they didn't recognise anything on the wine lists of the smartest establishments there. Encouraged by the breadth of wines espoused by writers such as Eric Asimov of The New York Times, America's increasingly powerful sommeliers really do seem to be going further and further off piste when making their selections. Diners may search for classic bordeaux or full-blooded California Chardonnay in vain (on both sides of the Atlantic). They are more likely to be presented with offerings from the furthest byways of Europe or perhaps one from the latest convert to 'natural wine' operating out of an alpine cowshed. I exaggerate but you get the picture.

7 Qualities of Highly Effective Content Curators

7 Qualities of Highly Effective Content Curators | Grande Passione | Scoop.it
Every time I visit the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York City, I see something I’ve never seen before. In fact, t’s considered the most influential museum of modern art in the world. With that in mind, meet Klaus Biesenbach. Klaus holds the title “Chief Curator at Large” at MoMA. If you’ve visited the MoMA and walked away impressed (like I have), Klaus has a lot to do with that.

As content curators, we should all aspire to be like Klaus. After all, wouldn’t it be great if our content collections drew as much interest, respect and admiration as the collections at MoMA? In order to achieve this feat, we need to become highly effective content curators. In other words, we need to curate Internet content as we would fine art.

Let’s consider seven habits of content creation that would make Klaus Biesenbach proud. Continue reading →

Novelty at the expense of quality? — jamie goode's wine blog

Novelty at the expense of quality? — jamie goode's wine blog | Grande Passione | Scoop.it

One of the great things about the new-wave obscurist wines is that normal people who enjoy wine can afford them when they are eating out. With restaurant mark-ups, and the recent rapid price rises for the established fine wines, the classics are affordable only to the wealthy. If you are shopping in the £30-£50 bracket on a wine list, decent Bordeaux and Burgundy is pretty much out of the question. That’s a shame, but there are just so many great wines out there that are interesting and food friendly, if you are prepared to leave familiar ground and explore more adventurous wine lists.
