Discover Marche wines the wine-lover's way. Explore its unique characteristics through reviews, discussions, and one of the largest inventories of wine from Marche.

 

The Marche (or Marches) is a region in central Italy’s eastern coast, or in the middle of the back of the “boot” on the Adriatic Sea. The rivers that run through it are the Metauro, Potenza, Tronto and Nera. There are a diverse number of microclimates thanks to the rolling hills off the Adriatic Coast and the Apennines Mountains, the rivers and the lowland areas. This affords wine-makers many choices between cool and warm climate grape growing conditions.

Civilization and wine culture has been in the region since ancient times, starting with the Greeks, through the Etruscans, Romans, Byzantines and Lombards. In the 8th century, the Franks, including Charlemagne, began annexing the Marches to the papacy.

Tomgram: Mattea Kramer, A Recipe for American Decline That No One Will Be Debating | TomDispatch | The Rambling Epicure | Scoop.it
Five big things will decide what this country looks like next year and in the 20 years to follow, but here’s a guarantee for you: you’re not going to hear about them in the upcoming presidential debates. Yes, there will be questions and answers focused on deficits, taxes, Medicare, the Pentagon, and education, to which you already more or less know the responses each candidate will offer. What you won’t get from either Mitt Romney or Barack Obama is a little genuine tough talk about the actual state of reality in these United States of ours. And yet, on those five subjects, a little reality would go a long way, while too little reality (as in the debates to come) is a surefire recipe for American decline.

So here’s a brief guide to what you won’t hear this Wednesday or in the other presidential and vice-presidential debates later in the month. Think of these as five hard truths that will determine the future of this country.

The Future of Food at CGI 2012

The sustainability of the global food system - an issue of global, multisectoral proportions that engages individual responsibility - was discussed yesterday by a diverse panel of policy makers, business and NGO leaders at the Clinton Global Initiative...

"Rethinking agriculture with sustainability in mind

One of the important questions about the sustainability of the food system is linked to the emergence of a global middle classes. There are inherent tensions between the growing demand for protein and energy and the degradation of ecosystems. Clay spoke about the need to invest in crops that have a low impact on the soil and the environment. According to him, one of the central questions of agricultural sustainability is “which crops produce more calories by acre of land, by liter of water?”Adesina spoke about how sees seafood as a key alternative to traditional protein sources, because it has less environmental implications than other forms of protein. “Our view”, he explained, “is that it’s going to take protected wild fisheries and agriculture to deal with this. We are very aware of the need to partner with organizations to make sure we protect fisheries, and to make sure we take full advantage of agriculture and its potential.” He further noted that governments must also sett standards, monitor closely, and have the ability to sanction.
