Eataly Elevates Food Retail, Tastes Success. What's Next? - Entrepreneur | Wine Geographic | Scoop.it
The New York City store is now a full-fledged tourist attraction, and the rest of the world is in the company's sights.

The 50,000-square-foot New York store transports the dizzying sensory delights of an old-world Italian marketplace to the largest central business district in the U.S., with a multitude of gourmet meats, cheeses, pastas, breads, produce and desserts, all artfully arranged and presented for maximum mouthwatering appeal.

The best wines from Portugal’s Alentejo region | Wine Geographic | Scoop.it
The Alentejo wine region is Portugal’s largest, producing about two fifths of the country’s wine. A tasting in Lisbon in late October revealed how good the quality has gotten in recent years.
WineGeographic's insight:

The Alentejo wine region has more than 260 are producers, 250 grape verietals....and it was the Romans, who introduced the idea of fermenting wine in clay jars known as “talhas de barro.”


It is only in the Alentejo that this practice continues. Some clay jars weigh up to a tonne, are two meters high and hold 2,000 liters.

Heidi Peterson Barrett – Queen of the California Cabernet |

Heidi Peterson Barrett – Queen of the California Cabernet | | Wine Geographic | Scoop.it

Robert Parker himself has dubbed her the first lady of wine...Time Magazine once called her “the wine diva of Napa,” and with a pedigree and resume as storied as Heidi Peterson Barrett’s, there’s little reason to wonder why.

WineGeographic's insight:

Her success can be easily attributed to her attitude: Barrett herself said it best, “It is important to have diverse knowledge in all aspects of winemaking. You can’t just step in and be the winemaker unless you have adequate experience in the cellar and the vineyards. I wanted to make sure that when I finally had the title of winemaker, I had earned it.”
