What John Zmirak Learned From His Brush With COVID
"It's John smirk as my guest on the program. We decided to have you on John, how are you? I understand that you've had some kind of COVID strain and it obviously killed you. It didn't put me on a commission. I tested positive for COVID a week ago today. And I slept for 22 hours a day for 6 consecutive days. I was near death. 24 hours a day could be considered death, but it's only 22. So between curling up with the beagles and listening to lots and lots of history podcasts to help sort of drifting in and out of sleep. I feel sort of kind of okay, of course I wasn't able to take the COVID medicine that I wanted Ivermectin on hydroxychloroquine because even though at a doctor willing to prescribe them, there are no pharmacies willing willing to fill those prescriptions. Okay, what do we make of this? What do you make of this? At the medical establishment has been completely conquered by big pharma and big pharma has conquered conquered the government or worked with the government to conquer us. So that they can force us to take experimental gene therapy rather than safe, well tested, well, well represented drugs like Kubernetes and I have dropped the cork when that have been used safely for decades for in animals and human beings. Instead, we all all have to take this weird immunogen therapy based on spike proteins that might infect your bodily organs indefinitely. We don't know it's never been tested for safety. It never will be tested for safety. It's being tested on the whole global population.
Citizen Oversight of Cleveland Police Already Failing
"But in Cleveland there is a ballot measure issued 24 which is a Black Lives Matter ballot measure Basically it puts citizen oversight over the police It's completely useless It passed they fought hard The people who opposed it fought hard including their outgoing mayor Frank Jackson who was a great advocate for the black community as a black man himself and also a guy who to quote him hates poverty pimps and saw a lot of poverty pimps coming into his city and saying we got to have this change We got to make this happen So the voters approved it because it was sold to them as some kind of police reform But the results are real time If we don't step in and help people save their cities they're going to get results like this So I've got a clip from a broadcaster out of Cleveland Darby tomorrow who hosts the outlaws radio show which is a local show there And he was talking about an incident that happened to his friend's grandmother just days after this measure passed Can you queue that up Jim This person has been unfortunately dealing with a relative who is a meth addict who has broken in her house numerous times to steal things And has already put their hands on her violently This woman today goes to the clerk of courts to file a restraining order against this man And guess what the cork of courts tells her That as a result of the new law they can't handle it anymore She has to call some social workers to have a media Mediate what This person has already been
AJ's Thoughts on Katie Couric's 500 Page Memoir 'Going There'
"That, the big story of the day, God almighty. The former today and CBS News host Katie cork, 11 city book tour to promote her book, which comes out October. Going there. I mean, I mean, look, she settled a lot of stuff in this book. I think a lot of it's couched a lot of it she can kind of squirm away from some things. She said, I gotta give her some credit because she really did tend to give it to some people. So I'm not gonna say she didn't really, you know, go to great lens to avoid hurting people's feelings. She told some truths, but, you know, she spared some criticism from others. She settled some scores from her four decades in TV. A 500 paid funding page book. I think it's in excess. I think that's the Barack Obama level of nauseous. But she tore into ex-boyfriends, some colleagues at NBC and CBS, she talked about prince Harry, she didn't have any love for Martha Stewart. Katie Couric roasted her at a roast in 1996, anything Stewart can do, I can do better kind of shit. And she said, look, prison, humbled her. That's not a big deal. We all know prison humbles people who do bad things. But she took some shots at prince Harry, people are up in arms because she said that she met him in a polo match in Brazil during his wild alt sewing phase. And she recalled him smelling of cigarettes and booze. And it oozed from every porn his body. It's not a big
Rep. Chip Roy Reacts to Biden Withholding Monoclonal Antibodies From Florida and Texas
"Is even more horrifying And we have the Montgomery County judge here in Texas, which is near Houston. Who posted on Facebook yesterday, the day before. I'm not sure if you saw it where he right. He wrote out the 2000 Texans that were benefiting from the treatment that they had put in place to have a clinic or set up there to run these mono monoclonal antibody treatment. And it was successful. And this is where the vaccinated and unvaccinated and then now you've got the Democratic leadership in Washington coming in and saying no, no, no. We're going to step in and interfere with the market and create a problem that didn't really exist. And I look, I wrote a letter to the HHS on Monday, lighting them on fire about this and raising this issue up the flagpole and then load the whole We get 24 hours later, they were gonna have a briefing on Friday. We had that briefing today, Mark And I asked twice. I got cut off. And then I got back in Q asking a second time. Hey, how many, Uh, doses do you currently have a supply? How many can be made per month and what's the demand? You tell me the numbers. You show me how there's some massive national shortage that you've got to interfere, and they would never answer the question. Literally, he said. Well, we'll just have to get back to you. The numbers to wait you're stepping in and rationing care. Rationing what Texas can get, and you can't even tell me what the numbers are its political. They started off of saying seven states have 70% of the demand on this stuff and get never mind in January. It'll be 10 different states Mark because we know how this virus works. And yet that's what they're doing. It's political. It's purposeful and people's lives at stake. And they're doing it because they don't want to talk about treatment. Not just this. But after cork wine back when that was more effective. Let me tell you something about, uh Hattrick chloroquine. I've been taking that for months. Have heart disease and asthma. Has an harm me in any way.
Marathoner Deirdre Keane on How She Has Added More Meaning to Her Running
"You say i'm gonna do one marathon in memory of my dad. Check it off. The bucket list spoiler. You're now a thirty plus time marathoner.

And find another one and i think a lot of people can relate to this depending how a race goes right. Sometimes we hit the wall and finished a race like never again but other times when we had a relatively good race endorphins. Kick in right. When do i sign up for another one. Oh my gosh. that was awesome. We forget mile full team to twenty two when Struggling and hated our lives. So i knew i had marathons future for. They also thought. I sleep. Good way to travel so i graduated from northeastern that may and i moved to ireland and i started running marathons in different spots in ireland. I did dial blend belfast cork. I moved back. i said okay like. Let's continue to utilize this traveling. Iran traveling iran multiple marathons across the you ask at edinburgh london paris berlin. It's a great way to see the world and it's a great way just to get releases then i don't feel more motivated when you know. There's a trip coming in with the marathon. Oh heck yeah. Run -cation if you will use that yeah yeah. I didn't make that up. I don't get credit for that your credit because you introduced the term to me. I'll take it of ega. You also shave.

A part of a running club in the bronze calling portland track club. And i love them. Because when you're running with a group of people especially competitive runners you had to push yourself more than you would when you're just running by yourself Unfortunately i scheduled to some permit me to join track workouts but it lets we see potential when i do joining so slowly.

The Abduction of Jody Plauche
"And as the placebo has got more and more involved re karate. Jeff became more and more of a fixture in the families orbit. You have to remember. Jeff is only twenty four. He's a young guy and he doesn't know anyone in baton rouge so we're sure. He's thrilled that his family is welcoming him in and he's getting the sense of community that most people crave jody's parents were thirty. Nine year olds. Gary in june and they really liked jeff in the boys saw him sort of like an uncle figure. One particular time jody's at gary brought jeff home with them for family dinner and gave him spare clothes to change into and after that jeff would start bringing the boys home from karate he would take them tournaments as well as other fun activities connected to the fight team. There was real trust built between jeff in that family but on february nineteenth nineteen eighty-four that trust would be shaken to the core was january nineteenth. Nineteen eighty-four it was a sunday morning. He asked my my little border. Cork this is how close this family had become far each other's cars and things like that jeff told jody's mom that he didn't have his car because his brother dropped him off and that he needed his car because of some business dealing with having to do with down with his brother. So jody's mom. June said sure or the car. Jeff said he'd have the car back soon and then he laughed but he brought jody with him. They did meet up with. Jeff's brother. Mike in port arthur but it definitely wasn't to conduct any business. We drove out to his brothers. Mike house grab some clothes and sleeping bag and other stuff and we took my mother's call from gonzales. Louisiana support arthur texas and. That's where his mother and sister live. That's where he was from. Okay so why. The hell is jody with jeff on this excursion. And what exactly is going on here. Here's jody on what happened next. We say we just sunday night. And then the next day we went to another port louisiana looking for money basically. We didn't have any money. Okay so let's unpacked. Some of what is going on here. Jeff borrowed the car belonging to the mom of a little boy. He teaches karate to he said little boy with him but they don't go where they said that they were going the grab clothes and camping equipment and then jeff takes jodi out of state and we assume that right now alarm bells are probably going off in your head and have been for some time. Now they're going off and ours too but remember it's nineteen eighty four and it's unclear at what point jody's parents would have realized that jodi was actually missing and it's not like jeff had a cell phone that they could call at anytime of the day so at this point. Just imagine the paralyzed state of jody's family. Who do you call. would you do. And how the hell do you track down your kid
A Heartbreaking Novel About Mothers, Daughters and Secrets
"Elizabeth egan joins us now to talk about her latest. Pick for group taxed. Hey liz hi pam i thanks for having me. What's the book. The book is called. I couldn't love you more. And it's by esther freud. This is her ninth novel. And it's a book about three generations of women kind of circulating between ireland and england and the first one is a woman named ika. We get to know her in the nineteen thirties than her daughter. Roseline in the nineteen fifties and then a woman who we find out. And i'm not giving anything away that you won't learn fairly early in the book is kate who and we meet her in. Nineteen ninety-one and roseline is the linchpin of the whole story. She becomes pregnant in her early twenties and winds up in a home in ireland outside of cork a mother and baby home. Run by nuns. Who force her to give up her daughter kate for adoption and so the book is the story of these three women. And how e phi is continuing to look for roseline who disappears and kate is looking for roseline. She's looking for birth mother. And it's this incredibly powerful story about mothers and daughters and also an interesting and really heartbreaking. Look at what was happening in ireland at the time that really went on for about one hundred years where the catholic church ran the. They were like prisons for women who were in trouble in some in some way and they forced women to change their names and to give up their babies. And it's an incredibly heartbreaking walk at that legacy of secrecy.

The Eddie Murphy Hall of Fame
"Are joined by van leith in the cost of higher learning and eddie murphy expert to break down the career. One of the greats. What what i what. I what i was going on with guys hanging in there excited to talk about eddie. We're gonna do a hall of fame here so for the folks out there who have never heard hall of fame episode very briefly. Break down what we do on these episodes. We have built halls of fame for tom. Hanks roger deakins. Nancy meyers toshiro buffoon. A monster movies and most recently george clooney. So it's time for eddie. What we doing we build. A hall is ten films from a career. No more no less. He's got forty movies so we got a lot to talk about here. I'm going to start with this. Amanda eddie murphy. What do you think. I think of multiple eddie. Murphy's i think of a lot of characters all in one movie. This is going to be interesting van. I'm really excited to talk to you about all of these because i've been listening to unsurprisingly. There are a lot of rewatch ables movies. Eddie murphy movies on rewatch bulls and i was listening to some of them in. You're on several of them. And you know i had that podcast thing where you want to respond to the person but you know it's a podcast so now you're here and it's a privilege to get to talk to you but for me eddie murphy is a little bit of. It's a generational cork for me. Because i am just. I think a little bit more than both of you and so i became kind of like movie aware movie sentient like mid nineties. Nine hundred ninety five nine hundred ninety six. And i've done a lot of catch up but if you become aware of movies in the mid nineties that means that the first eddie murphy. You get the nutty professor and then milan. And then shrek. I saw shrek in theaters. Not above it. So you know at that point. He's like the elder statesmen of comedy super established. Like i knew the beverly hills cop steam song and dance to it while before i saw it but kind of understanding him as like family eddie murphy and then catching up on everything else. Interesting chronological or not chronological murphy. Experience for me. Then you want to do your history with eddie. I know you are been living with him for a long time. Yes i have been So i hambur what year this was and i don't wanna insult my parents. Every time i mentioned my parents. I get some minor detail wrong and then i have to hear about it into along to our phone call. Your parents listen airpods today. Let's no your show's. I wish they wouldn't but that's nice. Yeah i wish they would but they My father was taking me to see a movie. We were all going to the movies but this time we were breaking it off like my father was taking me to see one of the superman movies. It's either three or four and my sister. My grandmother my mother went to see beverly hills cop two and this was my first experience with with with seeing people so jazz to see a movie because they went this way. Like we went to the superman franchise. I fell off by that point so we went this way and they go this way when they go this way. They're all of these people over there. And i'm like daddy i wanna go over here and he's i know that's too old for you. We're gonna go watch superman. And i say that because that's the moment that i actually became movie sentient by. That's the start of it. That's like what are these people into. Before that i can't tell you when i i kind of became aware of eddie murphy. Because he's like michael jackson in the sense that there was never a time. I wasn't aware of him. I was born in nineteen eighty so by the time. I start getting Information downloaded into me eddie. Murphy's a part of that he's like a part of that thing but the first time. I realized that this guy isn't just a do that. I see on tv or the guy that that he is. The biggest thing in the world is what i saw. People excited to go for it felt. So that's my that's my memory of him and it's not even necessarily what you might call one of his mega classics like beverly hills. Cop two was the event that you can remember that says a lot. And that's eighty seven net says a lot about where we were with. Eddie he was kind of in the middle of i. There are very few movie star runs in the history of movies like the one he had in the eighties. The rise to fame which starts on. Tv i guess tom hanks Robin williams maybe In terms of just successful movies maybe will in there but those movies weren't weren't quite the same as well. what is there were talking about. It's really remarkable when you think about it. There's no like they're not like high concepts with willa was like he needed to be punching an alien in the face to get to this level and like eddie movies are just like it's especially in the eighty s. Eddie is just running around doing stuff. That's that is what this movie is. He's he's being harassed whether he's a cop or he's a convict fresh outta jail or if he's a guy off the street who gets taken into financial institution like it's just it's entirely built around his persona and his sense of humor which is is unusual. We don't see that very much. These
White House narrows income limits for stimulus checks
"Of a threat from far right groups, including followers of the Cuban on conspiracy. Those extremists claim Donald Trump will retake the presidency today. This is not stopping the Senate from carrying on the House adjourned, but not before Democrats passed two major bills last night. One on voting rights, the other on police reform for more. We're joined by NPR congressional correspondent Susan Davis. And so Democrats have railed against bills passed in state houses across the country that would make it harder to vote curbing things like mail in voting and early voting that work expanded last year during the pandemic. So what would this federal voting rights bill do about that? Well, this legislation has been a top priority for the party. It's not new. It was introduced in passed in the house in the last Congress. So this vote this week was a bit of a do over. They've called it the most sweeping government reform bill since the post Watergate era. And what wouldn't do it would do things like allow for automatic voter registration, it would make Election day of federal holiday. It would restore voting rights to people with past felony convictions. It would also expand early voting that we saw you so much in the 2020 elections. It would also do things like create more independent redistricting commissions to sort of end party controlled drawing of congressional district. On campaign finance. It would require more disclosure of big donors. It would require transparency about those ads you see in your social media feeds, and it would create a new public financing system for congressional candidates. Would also do things like expand conflict of interest laws that would ban members of Congress from serving on corporate boards and require presidents by law to disclose their taxes. Okay, sweeping to say the least. Thea other bill passed last night is the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act. Police reform has been a democratic priority for a long time. What's in this one? This is another bill that passed in the previous congress. So they're doing it again. This'll legislation would do things that would ban choke holds, it would change so called qualified immunity protection so it would make it easier to pursue claims of misconduct against police officers. It would put restrictions on no knock warrants, and it would require new data collection on a police encounters. It would also direct more money to community based policing programs. This one is not. I mean, it's not as controversial as the voting reforms Bill, which has very strong Republican opposition. No Republicans supported it. There is a bit more support among Republicans for police reform, especially in the Senate. There's competing measure by Tim Scott, who's a Republican of South Carolina. So there's maybe a chance there could be more bipartisan effort to move that bill forward, But the other measure is purely a symbolic one of the stage. It's still a tall order in the House Democrats know based on previous failures that these bills don't have much hope of getting to 60 votes in the Senate, which, of course, is the magic number to break a filibuster, they would need 10 Republicans to vote with Democrats. So why are they so determined to pass them if the prospects looked in Part of this is just elections are making good on their promises. These issues are very important to the Democratic base, and I think it's about keeping that promise. But you're right. I mean, I think that's going to be one of the cork tensions, if not the court tension of this Congress. I think Democrats really sensitive this fact that they control Washington. Now they have Congress and the White House and they want to be able to run in 20 to 2022 on accomplishments. But they have these really narrow majorities in the House and Senate, which really limits what they're going to be able to do. You know, it's not just the filibuster to the parties are really divided right now. There's not much that they agree on. The bigger picture, though, is Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer just doesn't have the votes to change the filibuster, and it's not clear that he ever will in this Congress. One of the biggest opponents, a centrist Democrat, Joe Manchin, of West Virginia. He was asked last week if he could ever see changing his mind. And he literally yelled never at the reporters who asked him the question, Okay, digging in on the filibuster, So just in the moment we have left we have the Senate is still in session. They're debating that Cove in 19 relief package. What's the latest? You know they're making some tweaks to the bill. They've done things like reduced the income limits for people to get those $1400 stimulus checks. There was concerns among Senate Senate Democrats that too much money was going to people who didn't need it. Otherwise, The bill seems to be on a glide path. They don't expect to get any Republican support. But Democrats seem pretty unified behind it. If it passes this week, they gotta send it back over to the house to pass it back over there, but Right now. They're on track to meet a march 14th deadline that they've set, which is when current extended unemployment benefits run out, and they don't want to see those benefits lapsed. So there's a real pressure campaign to get it done by then. OK, that's NPR congressional correspondent Susan Davis with the latest thanks to your right welcome. Well, every
Physicist Daniel Whiteson Explains: What Is a Neutrino?
"In the universe. That's there. There's a lot of them out there, but it just doesn't feel the same forces. It doesn't speak the same language that you and I and all the particles that make us speak or use right. That's right. Yeah, it's like, you know, it's like it's a It's death for something I can walk through the loudest bar. You know, with thump, thump, thump music right and not even hear anything. Don't even notice. It's there, right? It's not purposely ignoring you. It just does not hear it interesting. I was thinking a good analogy could also be you know how in the Internet today people communicate using Facebook or Twitter, or instagram or email. These are all different ways that people interact with each other on the Internet. But what if there was somebody who said you know what? I'm not going to use Twitter or Instagram or Facebook? I'm just gonna Respond to people if they write me a handwritten letter. That's right. Yeah, those people are social media knew. Trina. Yes. Yeah, that's kind of what it is. It's like everybody else is talking to each other in one way. But this one particle just says You know what? I'm gonna ignore those different ways to interact. I'm just gonna do my thing. Yeah. And given the toxicity of social media, that probably means the neutrino is the happiest particle And, Yeah, you know, maybe that's the key way should all learn from the treatise. Yeah, eh, So let's remind people, though, what the forces are so there's the strong nuclear force that ties the nucleus together. There's electromagnetism that's responsible for electricity and magnetism and light and all that kind of stuff. And then there's the weak nuclear force as the weakest of of these forces, And then there's gravity. Everything with mass feels gravity right. But in the case of particles, we don't really think about gravity very much because particles have hardly any mass at all. And so gravity doesn't really affect them to really those other three. So the corks the courts, they feel the strong nuclear force and electromagnetism and the weak force. Okay, so they feel everything electrons. They feel electromagnetism, and they feel the weak nuclear force. Neutrinos on Lee feel the weak nuclear force, which is called the weak nuclear force, because it's super duper week, not because it takes a week to act or something like that. So it doesn't just ignore some of the forces that everybody else fields but it only it like they wanted chose to interact with the rest of the universe. Is like the week is one. It's like the most inconsequential one, right? Exactly. It's like, you know, if you could only interact with somebody by sending him a letter to the South Pole, and the letters only go every six months or something. Right? And you know if the neutrino didn't feel any forces at all, then we would have no way to even know it existed. Oh, there could be a whole set of particles that Speak, even maybe a told different set of forces. Yeah, like people think about dark matter, right? Dark matter. We don't know if it feels any of these forces and that's what makes it so difficult to look for and to understand dark matter as far as we know, only speaks gravity, which is why you can only study it when there's like a galaxy sized blob of it. Neutrinos. You feel one of these forces, which is why we can talk about them and study them. Well, let's talk about some of these properties that I was reading about the neutrino. I read that it has a mass that maybe one lesson one million of the mass of the electron. That's right. Neutrinos are super duper duper low mass. And we don't understand why at all, you know, we look at the mass of these particles, the electron, the courts, the other ones. We have no idea why these particles of different masses. We did a whole episode on how they get their masses, which is by interacting with the Higgs Bos on some of them interact a lot where the Higgs goes on, and so they get a lot of mass, and some of them don't interact hardly at all. So they get almost no mass. We don't know why. Like why does this one interact with the Higgs a lot in this one. Almost None of it was like a bunch of parameters in the control panel. The universe and we don't know if there's a pattern to it or if they just set randomly the beginning of the universe. We have no clue, but it seems like an important hint. The neutrinos are so close to zero mass, but not actually zero. Yes. So they are kind of tiny, right? I mean, I know everything's appoint mask mathematically, but thieves things. I mean, they're not disappoint master there. Appointments that are really, really, really, really, really almost no Mass. That's right. But if again it doesn't affect their size, their physical size is a different thing from their mass, their masters like a quantum mechanical label, like electrical charge, right? Sound like something with more masses more stuff to it, But, yeah, you're right. Neutrinos are weird because they have almost no mass, but not zero like they're not the lightest thing in the universe. All right, photons have no mass exactly zero. They travel the speed of light neutrinos just less than the speed of light because have just more than zero mass these

Something that's kind of Near and dear to my heart. Since i do work in the world fast food. They're doing something really cool for all of us New riff is putting out a fifteen year. Straight bourbon whiskey. they're calling. i believe it's called. Relief is bottled in bond. Just like all of their other products. Distilled in indiana. By what what we can only think is mvp. Because they're the only ones. I think are going to have the stocks that are up there in fifteen years and i think it is. Gp wouldn't surprise me. The barrels were purchased out of mvp and again that's all speculative but they were stored at their warehouse with the remainder of their time and this run is limited to just nine hundred if not less only to be distributed out of their distillery for the price of two hundred dollars. I think i tweeted about that. Too on the burkan broken corker twitter page to if you wanna if you wanna get in more in depth about it. I believe he did. But that two hundred dollars is going to go to benefit Restaurant workers around the ohio and kentucky area. I believe that release is going to benefit. Both the ohio restaurant employee relief fund and the northern kentucky chamber of commerce who's in charge of distributing the funds to people who need it the most for more on that you can check us out on facebook at the broken court crew is our facebook group or you can follow new riff on all of their social media for more information on that release. And i'm sure it's going to be amazing man. I think you know what a great especially this time of year. What a great a cinnamon for them to do. I mean cove is really hit. That service industry pretty hard. It's ruined a lot of people and you don't see a lot of people talking about i. Understand nurses and doctors are at the forefront of all of this kovin but they don't talk a lot about like like your fast food workers who have been working throughout the entire thing. I mean i've been fast food. I have not stopped working since covert started. Yeah and i mean. God bless all the frontline workers as far as medical is concerned because they are. They're in close contact. All that like i said are the forefront of all of this but you rarely hear about anyone else you know. Keeping america fed keeping america clothed. Everything like that. So big shout out to all our healthcare workers and big shoutout to all our fast food workers. Anyone who's working retail right now and all of our truckers keeping everyone delivered to and everyone stocked up so we can get through this together. Definitely a big shout to the truckers. So we have a new segment on the show. And i want mr jake over there to take it over. Oh yeah this is our new segment. It's called what's cracking so basically what it is. We give a shoutout to whatever we've had since last podcast. Something's good something you drink and right now something you wanna tell everybody about to me. It was new roof winter whiskey. I tried that a good friend at a bar. Bought that around for actually me and dan and you talk about unbelievable. That's one of the best new products i've had. It really really is. I haven't had very many and of what i've had it. It's up there. I really so good. It opened my eyes to new roof and made me wanna do a little bit more research into their products. And then i mean on top of all of that. We found out about this thing that you just talked about the fifteen year. Oh yeah what's cracking for you. So what's cracking for me. I've had a couple of new bottles. I'm gonna give a couple of honorable. Mentions i never had seventeen ninety. Two bottle in bonn. I know very very strange. But i had that and it's delicious. If you can get your hands on bottle relatively cheap. I paid forty five ninety nine for man. I think that's right around retail so also from french. Lick indiana lead w sinclair four grain. It's called the iconoclast It's a four product from them. What happened long story short. They had three barrels. That were of the league w sinclair that. We're just a little off. They didn't say whether it was a good offer a bad off. They just said it was often. So they mix those three bottles together and made the iconoclasts. But the one. I really really wanna talk about is the o. H ingram whiskey It is from brown water. Bourbon company out of nashville. Where the whisky comes from. What happens with it. It's really cool.

Apps to Make This Valentine's Day Your Best One Yet
"Friend and colleague mark saltzman tier and he has some recommendations to have technology. Help solve this. Valentine's day dilemma. Hey jen thanks for having me back on the show so you have a recent column that is appearing on tech dot usa today dot com about valentine's day. What did you find out you know. I know it's a dated expression that there's an app for that but there are so many apps that can help you prep and celebrate valentine's day for this weekend and that includes when you've got a partner already and you just want to spice up the weekend or if you're in search for one so part of the app ground up which we're not going to get to right now is a look at some dating apps like okay. Cupid and what they found with their members that a lot more open to long distance relationships in virtual dating as you might expect to keep up with the times at least to start which which i think is interesting. I wouldn't want to be single during a pandemic. So i feel for those looking for love at the wrong time but the app said i looked at include of course flour so there's a lot of different apps that you can use. Pro flowers for ios and android is one of the more popular because their prices aren't crazy. We all know you pay through the nose for flowers especially around this time of year including delivery and they throw in like a vase or vase depending on where you're listening to this or a pot if you decide to order a plant they throw that in and there's a lot to choose from and you just put in your zip code and they'll tell you how quickly can get teased. May not be too late if you're listening to this before february fourteenth but a good app to your phone anyways because you can be anywhere and within a couple of tops order something to your significant other and it doesn't have to be just valentine's day so pro flowers was one that i recommended acknowledging that we may not be going to restaurants this valentine's day to clink glasses over a restaurant table. You may be ordering in so at least you don't have to cook with services like uber eats and other food delivery services so suggesting to give that one a spin. Your mate may not love getting you know. Pop is or burger king. c may want to look for nicer option not to slam any potential sponsors of talking tech. But you know if you're going to cork some wine you'll you'll you'll even see where the driver is on their way so you can time everything and of course contactless delivery in twenty twenty. One is good. They've got your credit card information on file so they'll just leave it on the step. Notify you when it's available so those were a couple and then one more is to create a sentimental slide show with photo's as as a nice sort of virtual valentine's day card better than something you could buy at retail i'd argue and there are a lot of different apps that will take your photos and videos and auto magically make a slide show for you including narration if you want to add it or a lot music and i'm referring to one actually in the article called quick without the sea so q. u. i k. it's actually owned by gopro and it's a free download for android and it. Lets you select the photos and videos or you can let it do. Its thing and it will create a sentimental slide. Show for you as set to music. There's one hundred and free songs included or you can add your own music if you like and then send it to your a partner or you can do it privately or posted to social media. So that's that's great. Because it does a lot of the heavy lifting for you and exports it in ten eighty quality with sixty frames per second buttery smoothness so those are a couple of apps that i thought were great for valentine's day.

"The future is alberino We're the second in the state to an albanian actuary years and I would say that It's probably my favorite wine to make in the cellar. I love radio. I think that we will be successful with it in the future. The other one is petite man saying but we use petite man saying or are sparkling programs. That's the baseline for our our sparkling wine program We all let in a bit of grab a niche with our in our event and a bit of chartres and we actually made a cab franck as an aside admitted cab franck sparkling roseanne A few years ago. So could we have done number of different white varieties. And i will say that. White varieties are more consistent in the vineyard from year to year than our reds are retz. There's a station about rep never at grapes. In north carolina from our perspective. I would say that there are some that do well and the one that really excited about that. We planted that does really well is to not actually so not does incredibly well. It's pretty consistent and We really like it and the biggest thing that we like about it is the wine quality and at you can keep a really low ph and it can't get right even as such a subpar year as we had this past season which we went from one of the best seasons on record into of twenty nineteen to one of the worst in twenty twenty So i would say that In all of it Looking at every single grape. That tonight did really well on the white side We did lose our albania but we From our from a late season for us but we did really well with our petite man saying share and for sparkling based for the previous year. But actually this year. We did a petite man. Singh barrel fermented A barrel And a and then on the red side to not of course are hybrid stood amazingly well are trump was fantastic and are a sham. Version was really really really great. We had high yield champion so really really nice on the hybrid so what performs well in a subpar year while i do really well select There are a number of other different groups that we have retested trial We had Era mellow which was a hybrid variety. That we just recently actually did away with it. We're going to be planting it to something else. Sarah have not cited at might be yet but will show We're trying to figure out another another alberino. Trying to find something else that will do really well And then Yeah so we just have Let's see anything else added. Were trialing We find that the cheaper is is. Okay we find that merlot does okay. But it's nothing like nothing like to not nothing like to not so Overall we've got fifteen different varieties on. I think now six or eight. Different training systems Sarah is trialing And the best part about the vineyard is that the students are exposed to so many different things. Expose all these systems. They're spos- ought sobriety and could see what happens in a subpar year end in great year because they do have They get two years of experience writes their first year introduction second years actually reducing winds and so they get two years and this class Got to see nineteen bits and pieces of nineteen and did participate twenty and learned a lot. I think from working with both vintages so windy you begin the decision..

Where i did my degree In analogy viticulture and plant science originally thought that was gonna go into plant signs and thought that i was going to be landscape architect I didn't think i was going to get into the wine industry. Even though that's what. I grew up in Grew up in with my with my my dad who has winery And my mom. Who is a professor of hygiene. Actually so i kind of have a little bit of education background and i kind of have that hard knocks. Background is well. My dad is a is a heart i would.

"Atlanta stuck in traffic and and for us thirty miles was you know basically across the street if we were going somewhere and so we are seventeen miles from downtown. Downtown Asheville and That distance has been a bigger hurdle to overcome for tourists I had expected. Now that it's not impossible, but Ashville gets about ten million visitors annual. Biltmore sees about a million a half those folks. But Moore's the most visited winery in the US. And so for us it even just the traffic that visits bill we got. Half a percent three quarters of a percent of those folks to make that seventeen mile drive on out to visit with us. We're busier than, I know how to manage threatening and I've okay with that will figure it out. Host. Cova. Being clear here Under normal circumstances and so we can. We can figure that out but. Tapping into that tourist market has been a little more difficult than my business model would have.

It really isn't that far it's a gorgeous drive. He ask when you're done with it, you can head over you know keep going in the mountains of that. We are just really really scenic. And Ashville. It's almost like like it's feels like a little bit of a valley because you you have to drive out of Asheville to really see the mountains you have to get to Madison County and get out to Lester, and that's what you really see the beauty. But ashwell itself is you're there for for the scene for all the things that they are to do. But Yeah It is kind of Ashville is in. Its own little like metropolitan isolation if you will.

Able to share our story with everybody that walks through the door. We've always enjoyed all of our visits and. From the winds to the hospitality to the views it's a great place to visit and relax and kind of get away because I. Don't think I, have cell phone service they're Kinda Nice. Yeah that's what you know everything here What makes us unique is us I mean I don't mean that in A. Malignant narcissistic way. Just. this place means something to us and I want the folks that come here to visit with us to want it to mean something to them as well. I think that definitely comes through the passion and and you know. The dedication that you've had for for all these years and trying to. Do the. You do something with the farm and share it with others is really cool experience. So let's it's twenty twenty. So let's talk about covid. Let's talk about the impact. That code has had on. The business we've talked about the weather and how that's impacted the vineyard. But I know you guys because of a stay at home orders and that sort of thing where. Shut down for a little while and so I'm sure that's affected business throughout the year. But let's talk a little bit about what's going on right now and what folks would expect when they come to visit. So. Absolutely. Yeah. and we're not unique in what? I'm getting ready to say but. We were shut down for ninety days and we this industry were not unlike our restaurant rather than where we're cashflow Bissett the the sales we make today pay salaries, tomorrow or the electric bill or debt service or whatever it is. But when that cash flow goes to all but zero That's that's a terrifying moment What are how are we going to whether this and then as we have emerged as phase to? Restrictions allowed us to open We made the choice that we were GONNA go to a reservations model. Now, we're not turning boat away.

"So, what you can do, if you really like the Crepe, that is your great to keep it, and you can propagated take cuttings propagated than take those cuttings but that's a process which takes at least in year. So you'RE GONNA have to plan a little bit ahead. What you can do is take the fruit or you can but that's not that that's a very that's a game which I wouldn't play. So you can't take the food germinate seats, but that can get you everything. But but. Everything yeah. It will get. Exactly. And so that's something I would. So if you want to keep that why and you want to move it, you need to take cuttings and propagate those cuttings because then you can make sure that the same wine you had before. Okay. What you can do is if it's like a lion, just dig it out and put into the truck and put it somewhere else back into the ground is most likely going to fail. If you do that, you can't do that with winds. But I wouldn't I wouldn't recommend it to do with like a fifty year old must. And one thing you could do with Musket. Is the time of year that you want to do it, and if you know what in far enough in advance that actually just gig. A hole. And take one of the longer shoots. And put it down the hall and cover. The middle of that shoot up with soil. And leave it attached to the parent vine. Because going to get nutrients from the parent vine. Help the help that new shoot grow and it will route. You probably have to water. But Yeah Yeah. Interesting Yeah Yeah. That's that's that's what he can do.

"And take your time, and we're not super tasters by any means it's all a journey and part of it is just teasing lots of wines and different things and and. Working through that process and trying to get better identifying what your tasty and I think a big part of it is just thinking about it like a lot of times I feel like we eat and drink and don't think about what we're doing. So with wine, it's important to. Actually try to think about what you're smelling and tasting. Like when you first get a class that's like fresh from the bottle and then. You get a second glass later where it's had time to. Open up a little bit in the flavors and the smell have changed and that is pretty cool. Becomes much more of an experience rather than. A liquid you're exactly. well, I have a question for you guys. What's the weirdest slavery detected in the warning? Or. Most surprising. Unusual Taste that a friend of ours did. But. Yeah. That's not something I would wanNA taste. Not, really a Fan Collard Greens. For. I think maybe. The. Most surprising for me. And it's not necessarily like an oh my gosh wasn't expecting that, but it's when they're use either different types of oak or newer oak, and then it just like is like really really present especially like an young wine too. So like you either get like that blast of like a toasted coconut or really like warming and Bourbon Vanilla. Those I find pleasantly surprising for for the most part and after the point you brought up now that they're making wine whiskey barrels few there's another layer of yeezy yet. Whiskey. Flavors in your wine just from the big. How do you? How do you feel about those? Do you think they're just a trend that's going to? Go out soon or do you think they'll be here long term here to stay I think it fits some.

"So when people like drink wine and one of the common. Ways to describe a wine would be saying like it's very complex. By that is just kind of like there's a bunch of layer flavor. So there's a lot happening here and I'm not gonNA, unpack it all but. I do have to say when when writing up some of our, you know wind postings I guilty of saying the complex wine and it's just like I can't put my finger on it or my tongue on it, but it's there's something there, right? Yeah. Yeah. And a lot of times it's just there's a bunch of layers of labor and you can kind of pick out there's different like you can get great flavors you can get fermentation flavors, you can get different levels. So talk to US little bit more about the fermentation flavors. What might you expect from? Those says your fruit flavors develop some. You can also pick up some floral flavors. From the actual niece. Champagne any like maller lactic when it goes through the process of changing the acid, you can get some more creamy kind of flavors to without we all know Jesse loves her mouth. Like Okinawa that? It's Like one of those really geeky wine terms that are really really awesome. It's so good. Yeah. I've no I didn't mean to derail. You've. Yes. You coming from the winemaking process. And then lastly, we have flavors which comes from oak aging. So that may not be all winds, but if you're a red wine. Has Been. Okay. Jr. Then you're adding another layer of flavor. So that's where you get your. Would Carmel nutty. Vanilla. Yeah. Spaces and I guess we should add hopefully everyone knows that you're not actually tasting like vanilla and toast and all that you know it's it's just inherent to the wind making process.

And doing teams and building capacities that is. Something which I. Like to.

So there's a lot of opportunity for the industries well. In the state so I feel. That is a very positive thing in as professors research professors, not in my extension rule, but as a researcher.

"To get everything done What would you say has been you know some of the highlights? Some of the things that you've learned in the years of doing business my goodness. That's a loaded question. I I will say I was going to say you can make a stab at it right off the top of my head. I'd never had a clue how hard the business is until you get into it. A lot of people say the same thing it's like. Oh we're going to retire going to the wine business like you're really getting into a second career so that's not really retirement not A. It's not a it's not a retirement type business and it is. It's multifaceted from farming and having to deal with mother. Nature to marketing and label label designs and website designs to customer relations. To is just it's very multifaceted and then the whole hoskins hospitality and food and beverage with the restaurant. It's it's been It's been interesting. So what would you say has left the biggest impact on you? Then I would say for me is just Biggest impact for me is when when you look at Businesses like this that have so many components to the vineyard the retail customer experience. You also have the. You have the food and beverage side. You have the restaurant You have that experience and then you have the hotel and all the work you know all the things that go into that and in the experience that folks have when they're they're trying to mesh all that together with the group that really jails are. We have To me I. That's probably the biggest takeaway for me. Was You know when people drive in and see? Oh Hey here's a nice venue this is. This is cool. You know. There's so many people and work behind the scenes that go into that and having the right people Handling you know each aspect of that is huge. And I think you know as I've gotten more involved in the business that's the most important thing is Mandy said. Was that customer experience and either either have to have it right or you can't be in business long term so I think that's what we strive for. And that that's been the biggest impact on me is how much you depend on. Really good people which were lucky to have so. We're kind of wrapping up on the questions here. So one more question for all three of you then What is it you look forward to most in the future you can? Won't you jump on that one? I for me. I I feel like I'm making wine better every year. I mean that's every winemakers go search for me. You know my personal style of winemaking is is A very pragmatic approach You know very base very much based in the oenological sciences. I try to stay up to date with current biology and and and try to Really improve the product from year to year and I I can see that I'm doing that and I think that that that's that's the most exciting thing for me is. I always look at how to make wine Better and more efficiently to I think that's That's something that I wish I had known you know years ago and that I'm continuing to learn in that a lot of I think winemakers that are just starting out probably overlook. Is You know people talk about quality all the time and that's an obvious a goal. I mean we're always going to try to make the best one possible but we have to. We have to make the best one possible as efficiently as possible and You know work closely with all the other team members of the particular business to try to reach our goal. I mean this is a this is a business after all and you know we have to. We have to have that same goal. And and Get the line to the customer and And hopefully make some money while doing it so I feel like I'm I'm just learning more about the business con constantly and And producing better wine. I think that that's going to continue on into the future. I'm already I keep. I keep multiple notes on On my computer of things to look into for the next vintage and I have two pages single space of ideas that whenever I randomly come up with an idea I type it out and hopefully try to mark some of those off each antigen Page gets keeps keeps getting longer so that's always a good thing. I'd that's definitely a good thing because the one thing I'd like is when I look into the future as I get excited about where we're going to be twenty years from now. What are we going to be doing? Twenty years from now What winds will we be making? That will be different You know my biggest thing. I'm always about the as upset a couple of times. I'm about the customer experience. And so you know like like to see us do more weddings and more events that are you know where people are coming and bringing groups to the binion those kinds of things and I'd like you know there's there's interesting things Ethan. Not Talk about several times. What we what we can we do differently. And how can we do it better and that those are the things that I get excited about? How can we make what we're doing? Good now where do we take it to them to get it to the next level I would? I would say for me that you know one of the things. I'm excited about with teachers. Not only you know where the vineyard sits between Charlotte Greensboro Roanoke You know vineyard itself. Even though this in the foothills of the mountain sits in a huge you know development. Honeypot down the road and I think one of the cool things see and you know maybe not our lifetime but our kids or even their grandkids at when all those communities continue to grow which we expect North Carolina to that And we own you know close to a thousand acres around with the vineyard around just watching what develops around that and like Mandy said continuing to to build that customer experience and other things that we can add to it along the way and the development that takes place around the venue You know thirty years from now. Who knows what you see that You know the good thing is we're in the best state in the country from a development standpoint so I think that's going to be fun to sit back and watch Especially for know kids. That are you know like Ethan's age when he first came by the vineyard nine ten years old when they're when thirty it's GonNa be fun to see what that looks like it's awesome. I think those are all great things to be looking forward to. We share a lot of that because I think the more that the grows. That's the better for everyone who's involved in it and Ethan.

"That basically the consultants came back to us and said that we had excellent soil. We would have to do several different things that The California wineries do. We'd have to do them differently. we are challenged with the lovely humidity of the summer in North Carolina. And so they kind of told us that we need to plan. Our great done rose a little bit further. Apart so that there would be more movement for the Air We tried several different varieties When we first started I think the only one that we are not really able to grow to well North Carolina's the Pena Nawar We had that planted the very beginning but found that that was just very very difficult. Great to grow I think that there were lots of things that were interesting. At that time. We all had little children to at in the early nineties and said they were always loved to go to the farm and Kinda hang out. So did you have any idea when were going all throughout this is what you would be doing now at all. So what did you WanNa be when you grew up? I was an interior to figure that out that you were saying. I was an interior designer when I graduated from college and was working in that field and helped dad and led do most of the interior design for the properties that we have up there now And then it just kind morphed into me getting more involved in the business side and learning you know from the F. O. B. Market to marketing. I love to be Eat and cheap wine taster. I'm always good for tasting wine. It's it's just been it's been an interesting evolution of How the family Is this has grown. And it's been it's been an interesting twenty years and I'm looking forward to the next twenty years. A lot of our listeners may or may not be familiar with Shelton vineyards so talk to us a little bit about you know the experience of when they go to Shell. What is it like? What would they expect when they walk in the door where we really just want them to feel welcome? We want them to be at ease. We want them to you Be Open to try things that they might not have tried before. I think that's the fun part of a tasting experience That you you you may be somebody that's never try to. Cabernet franc versus tonight Grade and it's very. They're two totally different taste profiles We love to have people from all over. Come in and learn about what we do learn about our area there learn about what the North Carolina wine industry as a whole is doing. It's it truly has exploded over the last twenty years. I think when we got started we were one of twelve wineries in North Carolina. And now there's over eat them would have to help me out with that number but I wanna say there's close to two hundred and something I think to eleven to twelve. That's somewhere around that number. Yeah it's it's definitely exploded in the last Twenty years It's definitely growing and I think it's just it's a great place to just come relax and unwind a little bit. We all get kind of tad up in our own world in cities that we live in. We're truly in the far. You're truly on the farm when you come to Shelton vineyards we have lots of Walking past and we have a lake that you can walk around and actually have a lot of catfish in that lake that do catfish food for the kids to feed the fish In that lake. And that's that's quite an interesting so now they're they're pretty big. Yeah I never realized that I'll have to look for them the next time we come up. Let's talk about some of the early impacts that the family had within the wine industry so to that come to mind are the viticulture and analogy. Pergram at surry community college and then the other is the Yakin Valley. Aba and getting that started so Can we talk about both of those and the impact? How others sheltered family was was part of those and the impact that they've had on the state The process of getting the Aba region approved. And that's a federal government approval not a state government approval to be able to call a certain region an ABA. Like the ad can valley. And I believe the combat was the first Aba To be awarded in North Carolina. Even you'll have to help me out. I think we have Zik or seven. Aba's now North Carolina. I think it's six seventy six. Yes okay But they were they were very instrumental in getting together. All of the required information that you had to kind of tell about your terroir your soil conditions your climate conditions. What our region would play for the wine a certain way to be able to call it a region like the Napa Valley in this valley. SONOMA's area in California I think that was a big part of what they wanted to try to do. For North Carolina was to give the wine industry kind of a bump up to help compete with the California wineries because before we had the Yakima Valley. Aba You're only allowed put North Carolina on your label. And at that point in time there weren't a lot of North Carolina wineries and people are resistant to trying something new and so the biggest one of the biggest challenges we had was to be able to get people to taste the wine and try to wind and so then. They decided that they wanted to try to work with the VERSI store chains. And do some in-store tastings And that was. I think that was a big help for our industry to be able to be in the store. And you know let people sample the wine and try it because once you try it you kind of you know you'll like it let's talk a little bit about Surrey as well and getting that pergram started Your family was involved with with that. Initially Yeah my dad and my uncle decided that they they're they both have always been people that might to give back to the communities that have given so much to them. They've always been very charitable and trying to help help another A fellow winemaker fellow viticulturist. Or a knowledge Est. You know those kinds of things and so I think they really felt like there was nothing on east coast that really delved into the study and the practice of growing grapes and make wine and they really wanted to give back to that area to try to help the PEOP- fellow people of North Carolina. He wanted to start growing grapes. A forgive them a place that they can go and learn how to do that. And so they partnered up with the surry community college to start that program. And now there's the Shelton Badgett's Center for North Carolina Center for viticulture and analogy. That is a fantastic facility. Surrey provides a lot of good resources for the wine industry here in the state so it's quite impressive place. If you haven't been check out and I'll just add. Add to that too. I think from their out of their big business document from the real estate you know when they were in the real estate era they kind of brought that same business acumen to the one visits and tried to not only North Carolina but Surry county in particular and creating that Yakim Valley Should under raises awareness more from a business standpoint that you can now offer these vineyards and Truly make it a business and ultimately a destination point like a. You Know Down Road Map or somewhere that has the you know. All the notoriety. Go you know creating Appalachian creating the Atkin Valley is looking at it from you? Know like other businesses they ran. They wanted some you know think they wanted to see more structure around it where truly became a destination for You know putting our state on the map is a great Winegrowing region. So thank you know. That was one of their goals after deciding to go in this business was hey. How do we approach this from you? Know helping others The ease of opening other vineyards. You know trying to recruit other people to open vineyards to create that that US of. Hey we're here. We got a great industry and and You know welcome anybody that wants to you. Know come into the why. An Industry Open Vineyard Grow and sell grapes You have basically eight e in the wine business. Think they wanted to approach it more from a business standpoint That got you know more notice around the country that you know. We're we're kind.

"Perfumes it. It very much is and we are big supporters. We're not as active in the QA program as we were in terms of being palace in. That's strictly a matter of time it would just trying to have too many balls in. The air looks so many weeks into one day. She does pretty. Yes so we're kind of winding down on the question. So what is it that you want to know when they come to visit Carolina Heritage that? I guess what the message that I would like people to leave with Is that you know this. This journey that we've been on. Clyde myself was really It was an adventure man to help us grow and and it's so much accomplished that we talked about being a part of nature. But that it's possible to do things in a sustainable way. We talk organic but really what we're focused on a sustainable and that includes all aspects That includes not using petrochemicals but it also includes you know what is Your Business Model. What is your. How do you treat your customers? How do you treat your employees All of those things are important factors in being sustainable and You Know I. I hope they leave. Feeling good about their experience I hope they leave feeling positive about. We can do things without petrochemicals And that they think about that in terms of when they get home and they're planting their vegetable gardens and the little things those little things will add up on this planet and So I I don't I don't like to preach to people about about that but I'm hoping that they leave with that kind of that thought definitely a good takeaway anything we can do to make it better for everyone for sure. Cloudy quite comedy yeah you. It's great words patent. Clyde thank you so much for having us here at Carolina Heritage Vineyard moderate. We really appreciated the time of the conversation. Thank you so. Thank you Misha. That's it for this episode of Cork. Talk thanks again to Patent Clyde growing. You're producing organic. Wine is truly passionate.

"Welcome Jesse Jessica. How are you today? Where great thank you for having us? So you're welcome to join us. What's the topic for this episode day? We're GONNA be diving into the anatomy of wine tasting wine. The best part. Yes sir. Who doesn't love tasting wine only terrible people that we don't want to be friends that tell us a little bit about that is it just as simple as You know sipping on it we thought. Would we started like wine? There's so much more to it. it's really an art science behind it and so we're going to talk a little bit with the Five S.'s which are not unique to us. this is kind of industry wide. But it's helpful helpful pneumonic for remembering what you should do when you drink wine. So the five S.'s are see sniff. Swirl Sniff set sail enough right now that five times fast wealth Miss Nelson there twice. Because it's a pretty important one Actually more important than sitting. But so we'll talk about each one of these a little bit so see you're gonNA to look at the wine and kind of get an initial impression of it. Obviously about color rim variation which is probably not something. We're going to get into now legs which we might get into a little bit too. There's no obvious sediment or court floating around in there if you're unlucky or lucky maybe Sec- you know. So you're holding it up to a white background or the light to get an initial impression so sniff you're gonNA stick your nose in there. Get acquainted with your wine. And you're doing before you swirl it because you WANNA see how it changes in opens up once. He swirled which is nest s And this is just airing the wind so getting oxygen in there to help open up the wine you preferred swirling method. Well I'd like to be able to swirl with one hand and wildly do it with my conversation just like Oh yeah. I can totally do this. I really more of a set. It on the table at splash around Kinda Gal. Because that's really hard for me to do it. Just holding the glass in the air right people that can do it make it look so easy you try just to hold the stem instead of like heating up the line with so very hard but yeah that's swirling step is a really important step so then you're stiff it again. You're getting your nose back in near and smelling seeing how it's going to open up. Hopefully you really wanna get your nose right into the glass right like hovering over the rim of the glass and and just there you want to get right in and do a big sniff like leftover food in the refrigerator and you're cautiously approaching it. Yeah and so. This is giving you an introduction to the nose of the wine which is how the wind smells and therefore how we perceive its taste. There's different flavors when you're thinking about the nose like so if you've ever been to a wine people are always like. Oh Yeah I gotTa hint of elderberry. Teri Garr and I'm like I don't know that I've ever had any of those things and good you for smelling that but I just don't get it but it helps if you kinda can categorize the nose into different areas. You know thinking about what fruits and herbs or maybe floral notes. You're smelling thinking if there's any like yeasty smells in there like a cheesy year. Nut smells or even like tonal errol yeah and then getting into the key like baking spices. That kind of thing. You're seeing if you can smell it. Anything like that in the nose because the large part of what we taste is actually what we smell. I is that true exactly. I can't remember the exact percentage of breakdown but yes smell and taste are directly correlated. Just why he can't taste anything if you plunder nece yeah. I had a sinus infection. Austere and I couldn't breathe your nose and I went to a wedding with an open bar and they had a great wine selection and it was so sad because everything just tastes the same and it was maybe the worst bottles. And maybe they'll be okay. What's the best descript or you guys have heard for a wind? Oh man well best as good or best as in bad like most outlandish or most accurate then ridiculous. There's no way that yeah bug spray is interesting. We had a we we we encountered someone who maybe had a sinus infection going on at that time but it was really more like a rosemary. But they said it was bug spray and we're like maybe listening. Maybe not believe names out of this one. Well you know. And that's the great part about wine tasting as it is very subjective. So you're not wrong. Maybe they smell dogs yeah rosemary flavored trading Terrell bugs. So when you go to taste wine most of the time the tasting room staff will will try to give you descriptors or maybe a tasting notes that they hand. You have descriptors of what you were expected to smell and taste on the sheet. Do you look at that before or do you try to not look at that until after you've done your initial five essence and then maybe Oh yeah. I think Tasting Spirit Guide Aka. Somebody WHO's working in tasting is doing a good job. They'RE GONNA. They're not gonNA lead you down that pass they're going to give you the information and set it up for you so that you can get there on your head and that so. I prefer not to have the tasting sheet necessarily in front of me. That says the cranberry raisins vanilla. Because it's very suggested. Says something in your brain clicks in you kind of force yourself to smell backpack klay the power. Yes I agree I I. If it's in front of me I I like seeing what the wind is. And if there's any details about how it was technically made so a it's French. Oh Gore stainless steel or surly or those types of things that seem formation. I I like to have but I don't necessarily like to have okay. You're going to get fig and honey whatever you know so I after the fact that's fine but before I tasted and it's hard 'cause wines kind of have their characteristic aromas so you never know if it's that specific bottle of wine that is that it's Oh this is a merlot and merlot typically smells like blackberries or what happy so we've gone through C. Sniff swirling sniff the last step yes. I'm so glad you've mentioned that. Yes that isn't I mean. I was saying that sniff is really important but SIP is the best us of the five so you finally after all that work of looking at it smelling it sloshing around smelling it again. You finally get to take a step if you haven't snuck one in. I'd like grandma. Hoops definitely throws See at this point you're sipping it but you and I who kind of hold it in your mouth for a little bit. Because you're you're checking for the body which is the texture or way of wine Used to house the mouth feel. And how does it taste at this point so with body you can think of it as a range from the difference between like skim milk versus milk so that this custody magnus of the liquid Thinking of it I think Utah Clicking credit at ourselves but we did learn at a wine conference once that someone presented on and so we did share that at the first blogger summit. Yeah I think it's a perfect way to describe what body is because most people burn variety of milk skim low fat and whole almond cashew soy rice yet. So I think that's a good way to get that into people's minds about how to how bodyworks so is there a fine art to sipping as there is rolling on guzzle? It one thing that can be difficult. Hit like beer. Yes we should explain Our Name. Wine mouths right comes from the fact that we would love to drink red wine and if you drink too much red wine or if you're you know if lips are dryer you're bad at sipping You're usually going to get left with that telltale wine mouth at red stain on your lower lip and maybe your teeth and so I have heard that a trick where you can put something on your teeth to prevent to. That's never worked but I've also heard that you can like we've been going on at the like stealthily. Lick the side of your wine glass so that it's not going to get on your mouth instead. I don't think that's GONNA work. I read it on the blog. One interesting I think. That's a good feature video baby. How to Licko s out? Yes Our name one. Mouse is because we sometimes have wine mouth if we drink too much red wine though. Also we've noticed if you drink a lot of wine you tend to like talk while wide or just in general a lot and now we have not been drinking today right yes. There definitely is an art to the sipping yet and sometimes if you're in a tasting room there could be somebody sipping vigorously like if you sip and try to breathe in air and the same time and Slosh it in your mouth You can has to help. But you look ridiculous. That's the other thing too is. If you have a stemmed glass you shouldn't be holding it by the glasses off. You should be holding by the stem big pet peeve of mine especially if these people on TV they always by yeah unless you're actually purposely trying to warm up a white C. There's always the R. Yes but how do you feel about air raiders for wine? So if something that hey you open it and you know that you probably should have decanted the wine. But you really don't have time for that then. I think it's good to have to pour it through an aerator to to help. Open it up a little bit more quickly. But typically we like to can't are winds obviously. Don't do that with sparkling wine but pretty much anything that we drink. Why don't read for at least a little bit Before we drink it because we think that helps get that oxygen in air in there and helps the one if it's something that is special like you're opening some really special board. Oh you're gonNA WANNA do that hours ahead. It seems but if it's a white wine you know fifteen minutes or so is usually enough to get it where it so. That's kind of our general. We don't use an error that often we're more and just using the CANTU. Joe Doesn't see sometimes if the wind needs to open up a little bit more I will take the wind from the cantor and put it into an aerator glass. Yeah and then the second glasses usually better so that they both held. Everyone needs a matinee behind the scenes as secret wine aerator. You'll never know why it tastes so good of it. Well JESSICA JESSICA. Thank you very much. You've taken us through the five ss of tasting. See Sniff Swirl sniff sip thank you very much for the segment. We look forward to tasting more wine with you in the future. You can find out more information about the wine mounts by going to their website wine.

"Genius Lindsey Vineyard in welcome North Carolina Michael. Welcome to Cork Talk. Thanks a lot. Thank you guys for coming or excited to be here so Michael. Why don't you go ahead and tell us a little bit about yourself? Oh I started this place. The Vineyard in two thousand four I had lived overseas for sixteen years in the Foreign Service spent a lot of that time in France and Grew to love French wines in particular that of the Rhone Valley in southern France. So when I came back here settled on the homeplace which has been in the family for about one hundred fifty years so that was the ideal place to start and that was when a lot of places in North Carolina we're starting up with vineyards and made a natural transition for me to try to keep the farm in the family and maybe pass it on Sunday to at some point to my children very cool so what was. What was the farm before you plan to the vineyard the question we most often get is did you grow tobacco and the answer is no we did not never never tobacco So we didn't get any of the bright leaf money Which is a shame. But that's it it was We grew GRANDPA grew grains and hay and and sweet potatoes and then we migrated somehow into raising chickens. And that's that was what my my brother and I were. The were the main farmhands here at the time so I escaped when I was eighteen from went to school and then went right into the Foreign Service when I was twenty one so talk a little bit more about living in France for all year. Well we're stationed in Africa. Europe and a lot of the time never stationed in France per se. But when you're when you're over in Europe it's very easy to get to France and it's very easy to fall in love with a French wine and one thing led to another and that's how that all happened. In over a period of sixteen years you can spend a lot of vacation time in vineyards and drinking wine and getting to know what it's all about the French have two or three thousand years of experience at this and if you don't get it in that time he probably should give it up. Thank something right. They're doing something right and they probably know a good bit more about it than the rest of Astute. So that's that's that's that's my introduction to wine so directly French strictly oh world. Strictly southern France says they didn't visit Burgundy or whatever. Yeah you have to visit Burgundy and Bordeaux and you know. The wrongs very close to Provence. But I fell in love with Ron Wines. I mean there are reasons for that but I thought they were they were. They were a lot more varied than the other places in in France. And there's it's it's part of the same culture but it's it's it's different because there are many older families in the Rome. It's still do it and have been doing it for five or six or seven generations. Okay so let's talk. Maybe a little bit more about what varieties you find in the interim valley in France and how that's different than than other areas. That's pretty clear. Cut you in the north. You Find Sarah and be only in the south you find Roussin Grenache Move Adra and then some of the lesser known varietals that they use for blending in this out. So you in the north you get the The blend of red and white which is the only place I know in the world and blends red lights and that's the va which are actually entered planted and I worked for every once in a while and some of those vineyards which are located on forty five degree hillsides. So you do not mechanize that it is all. It's all hand labor and you you get a feeling for it but it's not like when you do it yourself because it changes that changes your perspective in every every way so before opening before planting the grapes here you actually had some experience over in France working with the goal research. Espn some people. Call it drinking. But it's really research and yeah I did work in some of the wineries some of some of the vineyards so. When did you get the idea that you wanted to do this here again? When I came back to North Carolina in the late ninety s and I got to know well by two thousand. Three children had started up. That was next door. Neighbors almost and children's had brought down one of the truly. Probably the best winemaker in the East Coast to run that winemaking operation there. I got to know him. I got to know the vineyard people and they were tremendous tremendously helpful. And with children's there is a as a destination that makes it possible for a lot of us to exist which we probably couldn't do on our own. You know the majority of people that we have visiting here are from the Charlotte Mecklenburg area. Because here and children's it's the closest place to Charlotte that you can come to be in the Atkin valley so that has made it very nice for us. That made that decision and I originally wanted to so to sell grapes to Children's and I saw the first vintage of Ada him and then the next year I said Oh we okay about You buying it'd be on you and a little bit and so forth Up until about three weeks to harvest the answer was We've got a lot of inventory and we don't need any more this year and I said okay. What's the next step? What'S PLAN B? So mark for his allow skiing. I worked it out and I said we just make the one and then we'll go from there and that's where the fifteen year sixteen year association began. That's been that's been a wonderful relationship. I rely on him. He when you when you have a lot of experience in France you understand that there are two people involved in this and the grower and winemaker and if the grower has a good year and does his part the role of the winemakers kind of stand out of the way and let the wind. Reflect the vineyard. When you've got problems that's when winemaker becomes critically important. I'm glad you brought that up. Because it really is very distinctive. You're the grower marks the winemaker. So what gave you the passion to be on the grower side again? That's a question of the of land reform. The the home place being able to save that rose sell it off into something you know Which is happening over a lot of North Carolina and South Carolina and Virginia where farms are being sold Just so that they can develop houses So I was hoping that this would work well. Enough to give my. I have twins that are now forty one years old and I was hoping that that would be enough that it would work out. One that wanted them would be interested in coming back here in and taking over the place at some point in the future so jury's still out on that as my father used to say to me you'll never come back here. Michael so you know and proved him wrong. So maybe they'll prove me wrong says here you are here. I am so. Let's talk a little bit more about the vineyard itself. So what varieties did you plant initially? Have there been any change in what was planted originally when you. That's a great question. Joe When when you start out it's it's a right after you start out you realize you've made the first or second or third mistake so we started with two acres of the way so you realize that that's probably not the best mix you could have. If you're GonNa make one let me back up a second because Once you get out of the great growing Do you realize that? The money's in the wine not in the grapes so therefore here. I am with two acres of white. Va and no reds mistake number one so the next year we planted four acres of Sarah so now we have an abundance of Sarah over beyond Yang. Which is okay and so it went from there that it was it was it was a three year project really to get to get nine acres planted and then in two thousand twelve we start. We reap we planted in an additional two acres of grenache because that was to make Rosaiah which which resented ascendancy at that point And we perpetually sell out of Rose as and we are only one of two producers in North Carolina that make their rose as from grenache which is the way it's done in provence in prevents it has to be by law sixty percent for nausea in the in the blend growing just for Rosa or for about well. Actually we do override which is very unusual because it's primarily a blending great. What I tell people here that it's it's the largest produced wine or largest produced great largest grown grape in the world even larger than than Cabernet Sauvignon Spain All over everywhere. Broker notch the other way. You have is resigned. Roussin says well we have petite CERON and Those are all again. Rhone varietals The the Roussin. We put in because it veers. Northern Roussin is southern. Run Sarah's northern-run Grenache move address southern-run. So if you have those covered you can produce almost anything that the wrong produces which again is mostly blending but you can't produce all of that With with four or five different grapes so we do A blend of The onion roussin which is close to a cult around blank or Chattanooga pop line and that's been one of our most popular want so let's talk a little bit more about the differences between your son and so typically recited something that's known to be much full-bodied in something that really can age. It's is a wide that can really age although we Had Our tenth anniversary of the tasting room Last summer and we pulled out some two thousand nine beyond. Yeah a which is drinking beautifully. Which is really shocking. Because you don't expect a white to last more than three or four years at best I went back to their own valley last October and was talking about Roussin which yes you can sell her. Lay Down or age for ten or fifteen years and they said no. No you can do it with the own you as well but they are different wines. You've got to be on your which is Peach and apricot primarily in in in the taste. Roussin is different in. It's more acidic. It's in many ways. More closely. Related to read. Grapevine is white and You'll get some tartness to that that that you don't find any other whites particularly the so. It's one of those different things it that you learn to live love and recognize what it's what it's what its potential is pizza. Ross which is often confused as a little. Sarah spelled it for me. It's an eye rice actually spell both ways. That's how it's supposed to be so spelled women high as the French dictate this kind of thing also call it..

I don't think this is necessarily unique to an urban winery but daytime business challenges I think our everybody's challenges but finding the hours that are appropriate when you're surrounded by bars and breweries stories that are open to midnight. I don't want to operate a bar said we're kind of in the middle while we open from four to eight on Thursday and Friday right and are Saturdays Eight and twelve to five so that we have a mix of hours there is starting to be more and more foot track traffic around us and we are looking to do more collaborations with our neighbors. We currently have one of the brewery helps us clean cakes which is super. I Super Nice of them. It's something that is a piece of equipment. We don't have here on the city and we wanted to start playing with the session me and and also with bringing cakes into the meteorologist for serving our needs how we're going to see them was definitely consideration that we had to figure out and perhaps in this case being an urban winery really helps because we've got lots of great neighbors nearby on willing to how very cool yet really adds to that vibrant scene so you you start getting growth. You start getting foot traffic annually attracting people to it. You mentioned wineries. The destination is really hard but it's almost like the Urban Center Center as a destination so you get everyone around. You have an interest in businesses start to grow. It's kind of just good for Durham in general absolutely what we've seen on our end of town. It's exactly that when we came over here it was really the edges of town in two thousand fourteen and now we have all his other businesses ince's around us and more to come. We're finally going to get a restaurant at the end of this week. The nominal that'd be great from Sam's bottle shop people so I'm Kinda. Greatly gray barely Greg's also so switching topics again talk about some of the advantages make me versus making wine grapes absolutely totally different outlook okay first full disclosure. I have not made wine from grapes but I have attended a lot of brand making short classes and I definitely drink wine so I have some familiarity with that. However when I think about course the differences in the key ingredients and we're working with honey as fermentable sugar as as opposed to grapes there are similarities in that we are also trying as need makers to bring out here law happens to be a slightly different multifaceted it is still soil and sign an air and earth but we're talking about bees now so when we're looking at terroir the need the billions of places that the bees went those seasons the differences that are there this is oh this. GonNa go into my sued and or honey and bees because where the bees forage different times of the year think about our spring ephemeral and the delicate spring wildflowers come out with at the delicate those notes coming during that part of the year all the way to the fall when we've got trees and poplars I and Goldenrod imparting some stronger older nets into the honey just says winemaker is trying to express the personality characteristics of specific great varietal. We sometimes are trying to work with a specific nick honey varietal. You know there are mono floral honeys where the honey has been gathered from a single source. I you think of Sarah would as one of those I know right. Alex delicious honey and starlight has played with that value due to flee and they're in their sour would lead or two below we use orange blossom as a varietal where the beehives are in orange robes and in that way we are trying to bring that the experience in the Orange Grove of them buzzing all over. It is beautiful little orange blossoms. They're such north blossomed characteristic to the nose of that mead and yet then it's followed up with honeyed. It has a hint of citrus. We don't add any citrus. Cell are awesome. It's awesome. It's just like crazy so that's that's our parallels to wanting to express what our ingredients where they came from all of it and says and then we're adding fruit of course begin even closer to the winemaking experience. We might be cold soaking. Are blueberries actually did do a little bit of that. We just started a cranberry. We need to do a pump over on that or do some pump a hunch down our fruit on that we have similar techniques meeks and similar tools to the winemaking world. I just and madly in love with honey and honeybees and flowers and getting the chance to express express those nuances just as you'll find that passion in a winemaker for great that they absolutely love. I just absolutely love on so we'd be remiss. We talked about your favorite mediums. Do you have a favorite honey. Honey exploration has really really just begun but I will say it's a favorite of a lot of people played with it yet but the Metro Pacific northwest it tastes like marshmallows and there's so much you can do a little a little bit of a heating of that honey the and caramelized some of those sugars gets toasted marshmallow there so I think it would be a really fun to play with. I knew that warrants exact green and Ben at starlight Jolie nailed it was the medicine I wouldn't say it's a favorite because I am really loving real earthy so guess from a taste perspective I lean towards some of those more earthy. Wildflower is a personal favorite and that is because because it changes all the time that really expresses the terror. He said wherever the bees were collecting so awesome so you know over the years of doing business what has left the biggest impact on you had some really thought provoking provoking questions on your list and this is definitely one of them for me. I have many touchstones to me and many things have influence inst- to be going into this business it. This is one of the things that leaves the biggest impact entering a business where other business owners are your collaborators and supporters. Don't think I would have become a need maker if it was more like a widget maker. Kirk and my competitors were my competitors as a doggy dog world where nobody wants to help anybody. I would not survive five and that I am an emotional warm person rights to connect with other people gain energy through being around other people and yet. I work done so at least I I have until this point in the making so what left a big impact on the eve was to be welcomed into this community. It's it's huge. It's the real reason here is because of how much fun it is to be with other makers to totally geek out on the we we know most makers in the US if another five hundred meter is in the US. We know a lot of we know a lot of other makers and we we are all very supportive of one another people say it's like the craft beer movement in the eighties when something's just getting started you really feel like if you're part of something all in it together and everyone's cheering everyone on that type of environment that I really want so that I can drive five and I really want to support. I couldn't help thinking as you were talking through that. It's another parallel to the honeybee because it's still like they're all doing their own individual digital work but they're all working together guy. I was just like the Honeybee. Let's so beautiful. So what are you most. Look forward to future. Okay the other thought wow that as fun about this one. I have so many layers to that and I am a glass half full person so I really want to stay positive but as a business owner I'm GonNa just mentioned the overwhelming part that this question brought up for me. What do you most look forward forward to in the future as a business owner. I feel come pulled in a million different directions and I wanted to answer that by saying some time. I'm on the beach. That's a fair answer very I look forward to that at this really stressful time of just making making making going going going trying to grow the business and all the things that go into it. I have been just full on uh-huh full on with this business so that was my honest what I'm asleep word to but also from business from a meter for honey girl on media on most look forward to the day when our space has attracted ever-growing audience. We have such a beautiful beautiful audience right. Now people come here are so nice. I love that about this business. Also they are can get engaged in me from a hunting perspective of perspective or just doesn't craft three per or person walking by the way the I love it for people to discover us and Dan. I want us to become a little jam little treasure here in downtown Durham so look forward to just really expanding that audience and I love when I come up to the Tori and the picnic tables outside are full and there's a bunch of dogs and babies and families and people just having a great time at the eatery. I'm this look forward to seeing a lot more that Lawson so we're winding down here. What's one thing that you want your customers to know when they come visit the metering want them to know that they will be welcome. They do not need to have any wine knowledge rich me knowledge come in as a blank slate..

"Glenn style method Glenn being old English for medicine so when you think about agent meads they were considered medicine medicine they were taking herbs and spices fermenting with honey also read that Jane austen made the so. There's this historical aspect. That's really nice and floral medicinal method. Glenn is another area of extreme interest for me but back to the size irs so incisors it's made of North Carolina fresh pressed Apple CIDER. Originally we got from Hendersonville North Carolina but the and we were working with was transitioning to celdor Jews to a natural juice maker so they didn't have any extra side or available for us so I called our friends at Bob. Oh City cider works who let me know that one of their local sources is Perry low or Jersey in North Wilkes borough so they are fantastic and I go and get my two of three hundred gallons of their fresh pressed apple cider different every year different bland for west growing. I tend to like the late season because they're a little bit speeder. Some of the pink ladies there often beautiful varietal that they grow but anyway different apples will be in that cider so that spider comes back to the military and pump it into a tank and that's that's the base for for the meat. I had honey to that and yeast so most of the building blocks of time of need our honey water and yeast but in this case of siser. There's no water. It's just the apple cider so you have this really strong apple back. In those needs we make our apple siser which is a dry Chris Apple cider. I consider that my lawnmower mead because it's so thirst quenching on a hot day like super chill that down for the summer and then we also make a slightly sweeter version of it are spiced apple cider more like apple pie very popular mead styled Alameda East do because it's delicious so I guess a technical question that on the size or so like with standard means you're you're adding water to the Hunting Takata salute it to the right sugar level that you want to make sure that it ferments to the right alcohol so when you're adding in just citre then do you find yourself adding less honey or do you find yourself the ratio being different great question and yes I do. There's when I have the CIDER literally brings in almost half of my fermentable sugar while it's a measure that cider and then see but it's about a hundred and ten dominate says slightly more honey than the CIDER are traditionalist it might have about a three pound of honey per gallon of me ratio with the size of my tile back to a couple of towns funny but what you get from that is we have a lot of fermentable in there a lot of poundage our premiums have a couple of pounds of fruit and a couple pounds of honey in every gallon uh of need so talk a little bit more about those local ingredients should process for our sourcing those ingredients and and that's fantastic we are at the Durham farmers market. We joined the farmers market in two thousand fifteen in our second year of operations because because we work with local flowers and herbs so it seemed like a really great fit for us and at that time I had a few relationships with farmers immerse and through my experience at the farmer's market had met several more I source some of our ingredients directly from the market are ginger comes from the markets cricket and this gives Rosales are coming from their the lemon time and I just got some carrots from a local farmer as well to work a test batch something coming up on very interested in savory avery side as well something to play with that I haven't played with before but our normal process for say strawberries are current strawberry farmer when we were at the Holly Springs Farmers Market one-season they were my neighbor vendor and I knew upon setting up once they got out there strawberries of smells delicious. What kind of strawberries do you grow and he grew the style called Chandler's here in North Carolina that are so automatic and they're very delicate and sweet they just melt in a mead and so through that meeting they now supply S. with our local strawberries. We bring in a couple of hundred pounds of strawberries at a time. We process them by hand here. Rinse them just like you would at known cut off the green top says we don't want that then we freeze them up on. Trae then we put that tray of frozen strawberries into a container and that's how we can build up our couple few hundred pounds of berries the batch of meat we'll keep those in the freezer just help intensify the sugar's a little bit and the strawberry great flavor plus. I want to release it. You know at the next strawberry season so each year. We're gathering the strawberries at the same time we're releasing the batch made from the prior year her kind of been that way we have been to just just like the wine role does kind of how I think about the needs to talk about capturing the field and you're capturing that different vary variables of sunlight how much rain all of that affects the needs so. I really love working with fruit from the local. Farmers definitely means a commitment of time and energy and space. It's a labor of love I'd have to say especially when I'm taking and several hundred pounds of things off site to roast them to bring them back to make the need we've just lovingly caressed all of that flew through its journey ready to become a me and it's all part of that drinking the field taking that experience of local fruit or flowers and and capturing capturing it in a bottle very cool so you had mentioned vintages and I know that's a great concept to make sure that you're really understanding the growing season of that year and really capturing after everything that happened. How would you say does meat age over time. Select your maybe making me ten years ago showed up a bottle today absolutely and and I have done that and they are delightful mead ages really beautifully and I quit that to all of those nectar sources that have have been fermented and are in their need can mellow and deepen. It's it's weird to say that sounds sounds like one is fading and one is deepening but that is what happens the flavors mellow and they also intensify so all those different floral oral. B. B. visits change over time with aging the traditional needs to me. Just beautifully age for years and years are our fruit needs. Also we have done some verticals since we now have almost five years of existence but we've tasted are twenty fourteen fifteen sixteen seventeen eighteen eighteen meats and they're different throughout the years some of that is just are growing her to in learning curve on the meads. I feel were there just getting better better but there's also the differences from year to year in the field the field differences so let's talk cocktails cocktails doing a lot of creative things. Other folks talk a little bit about that. How did it get started. Would you like to see it. Go sure absolutely need such a versatile beverage that just WANNA start playing around with it. When you think about edit space ingredients think this is part of the reason. It's so fun with cocktail. Since it's made from honey and free what would you do to make a cocktail often include a simple simple syrup and freely aspects so me just is a natural playing brown for cocktails. We got into it by meeting. Someone one at the farmer's market meeting actually meeting someone came into our tastes you and they started talking with their friend about I would make this with that. I would do this with that. Oh this would be fantastic gin. This would be so good with vodka and they just started riffing on them and we started talking to them and and developed a relationship where we invited them back said did you ever come play with us mix cocktails for us so they were a couple of cocktail aficionados autos came to play with us at the meeting and the we contacted a local bar to have an event where we could present as we. I don't have a liquor license here. We're winery so we we joined up with the local bar had an event there where we took these five recipes developed with the cocktail tale Aficionados and a little contest there and people came out to the bar voted on those and are winning need ended up being featured in a a book on the call the art of me tasting and caring fight Chrissy Ninian's airpor- fantastic book most meter. He's he's have it. You can come in reference it here at the meeting or via copy to take home and it's got that cocktail recipe as also. It's on our website but that's how it got started noted. We had that event at the local bar. People really loved it. A winning cocktails called all you need is love of the name and handed made with my all time favorite this time me so and it's pink so happy about he outcome of that experiment from there. It's been along with food and meat pairing kind of a growing hobby of mine. As I mentioned engine I love to cook hours have putting flavors together so intellectually weekend make pairings just by thinking about the four ingredients whether whether that's going for a cocktail whether it's going to be some sort of food pairing thinking about the ingredients that are there also since alley came on board as map rations nations manager. She's very good. She's a very skilled cook and she's very good at making terrorists piece so now I credit her with taking the evolution is not this forward. She's developed a ton of recipes that are on our website for different cocktails. She test batches them at home and she's also really good at tutoring. We had a lot of fun with that. Even get to kitchen cooks together flavors to cook and you're going to get some great results so I'm going to encourage people to play around not only cocktails with me but also with meat and preparing really fun event for someone to do at home you could start started simple as a meat and cheese pairing to says you might design a wine and cheese. Pairing meat is going to play in that round really well. I think as you mentioned maybe appearing for US earlier today putting Humboldt Faw cheese with our lavender grass absolutely I could totally see see that we are in our tasting notes food pairing suggestions. Were always looking to play with that. Whether it's a like with like pairing or whether it's a nice opposites contrasting pairing is awesome so I mean somebody places. We can go with this so let's stay on the food pairing for another couple of moments here. What's what's your favorite meat and food pairing.
