A glass of good conversation please - #recommandaria

A glass of good conversation please - #recommandaria | Cyprus Wine | Scoop.it

We live too fast. We need inspiration, time, quality of life, with what it implies, and of course, these wines, are not to take them on its own or by oneself, you can! do not misunderstand me! I'm proof of that! But really the best way, and if I write an article about it I would recommand(aría) it, it is that they are wines to take them after dinner, in good company where the protagonist is the good conversation.

Commandaria Wine - the best conversation in time.

Ted’s 355 succeeds with an overabundance of charm in Rockville Virginia. Ted Theodorou, a native of Cyprus, convenes all his diverse talents under one kitchen, and, man, does he micromanage. In the kitchen, over the dining room, he is the embodiment of service and oversight....can't wait to see the wine list.

Mother Vine Vindicated

Mother Vine Vindicated | Cyprus Wine | Scoop.it

The stakes are very high. The loss of grape biodiversity and the increasing marginalization of family farming tragically receives a helping hand by dogged international naïveté and indifference, both governmental and from within a wide segment of the wine profession itself, an attitude which holds, by default, that no more than 10 grape varieties need exist in the entire world. Indeed, without – perhaps equally naive – push-back, an insistence on diversity and difference, Portugal might yet come to suffer in the not-too-distant future a homogenized viticulture, sacrificing an august patrimony on the altar of Cabernet, Chardonnay and mass production.

What's great about The Rock's Rosés

What's great about The Rock's Rosés | Cyprus Wine | Scoop.it

The Rock's rosés is that wineries are crafting them with many different varieties, creating a wide array of distinct aromas, flavor profiles and vibrant hues. Meant to be drank young, these playful wines explode upon being uncorked with the scent of raspberries, cherries, cranberries, strawberries, pomegranate, red roses, violets and/or wild herbs, among others.
