Grainger’s wine blog. The one and only wine blog for all you winos out there.

The centre of the universe when it comes to the wines of the Saumur appellation in the Loire valley. Puy Notre Dame is an historic hill top (small hill as in Puy) on the pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostella. It has been around since the middle ages and the church houses the belt of the Virgin Mary so the story goes. Anyway back to wine. We have all that is the best of the appellation in white and red including organic and also the best of the rest. ie those vignerons who work outside of the normal system and produce some absolutely stunning wines.

Wine  blog ing is fun with Grainger’s wine blog. Its the regular spot to catch up on the latest stuff on the wine scene or maybe something quite different.  You never know what might appear.

Cheers.

Californian winemakers tempted by weed…

Winemakers and grape growers in California are faced with an interesting conundrum. Carry on growing and planting vines to grow grapes to turn into wine. Or make a whole lot more money by ripping out their vines and replacing them with cannabis plants. That’s the choice that is now open to them following another potentially mind blowing result from last week’s US elections. They might not have personally voted to put Donald J Trump in the White House, but Californians voted to legalise the growing and sale of cannabis in their state. It is estimated grape growers could make six times more an acre if they switched to growing cannabis. US drinks giant Constellation Brands has already said it is considering making cannabis-based alcoholic drinks since the decision.

The evenings are now coming earlier and earlier and with the right combination we get some great sunsets as the photo. With the colder weather the choice of wine becomes as related to the food we eat as ever. Try some great Loire wines. Look at Saumur Champigny but don’t go recent vintage. It needs to be a good 5 years old so 2011 is a great vintage. Try Chateau de Chaintres cuveé Chateau. All deep compoted fruits and chocolate.

At the end of September the wine producers of the Loire valley were looking closely at the grapes growing on their vines. Maturity was fast approaching and it is the job of the winemaker to determine the right moment to pick the grapes. Here Brigitte van den Boom is checking the potential alcohol level of the juice using a refractometer that basically allows light to pass through the juice which is put on a glass plate. This gives a reading on a scale based on the amount of sugar in the juice.

A Brexit message to Nick Clegg. One of those arrogant, self-selecting, self-perpetuating liberal elite.

Subject:  How Many Cows

>A farmer named Sam was overseeing his herd in
> a remote hilly pasture in Hereford when suddenly a brand-new
> BMW advanced toward him out of a cloud of dust.
>
> The driver, a young man in a Brioni® suit, Gucci® shoes,
> RayBan® sunglasses and YSL® tie, leaned out the window and
> asked the farmer, “If I tell you exactly how many cows
> and calves you have in your herd, will you give me a
> calf?”
> Sam looks at the man, who obviously is a yuppie, then looks
> at his peacefully grazing animals and calmly answers,
> “Sure, why not?”
>
> The yuppie parks his car, whips out his Dell® notebook
> computer, connects it to his Cingular RAZR V3® cell phone,
> and surfs to a NASA page on the Internet, where he calls up
> a GPS satellite to get an exact fix on his location which he
> then feeds to another NASA satellite that scans the area in
> an ultra-high-resolution photo.
>
> The young man then opens the digital photo in Adobe
> Photoshop® and exports it to an image processing facility
> in Hamburg , Germany …
>
> Within seconds, he receives an email on his Palm Pilot®
> that the image has been processed and the data stored. He
> then accesses an MS-SQL®
> database through an ODBC connected Excel® spreadsheet with
> email on his Blackberry® and, after a few minutes, receives
> a response.
>
> Finally, he prints out a full-colour, 150-page report on his
> hi-tech, miniaturized HP LaserJet® printer, turns to the
> Farmer and says, “You have exactly 1,586 cows and
> calves.”
>
> “That’s right. Well, I guess you can take one of my
> calves,” says Sam.
>
> He watches the young man select one of the animals and looks
> on with amusement as the young man stuffs it into the trunk
> of his car.
> Then Sam says to the young man, “Hey, if I can tell you
> exactly what your business is, will you give me back my
> calf?”
>
> The young man thinks about it for a second and then says,
> “Okay, why not?”
> “You’re a Member of the European Parliament”,
> says Sam.
> “Wow! That’s correct,” says the yuppie,
> “but how did you guess that?”
>
> “No guessing required.” answered Sam. “You
> showed up here even though nobody called you; you want to
> get paid for an answer I already knew, to a question I never
> asked. You used millions of pounds worth of equipment trying
> to show me how much smarter than me you are; and you
> don’t know a thing about how working people make a
> living – or about cows, for that matter. This is a herd of
> sheep.
>
> Now give me back my dog.
