"It ever happens. Exactly it's the only time in the year when the some sees both the are they see the sun both the north and the south pole. So it gives you an idea of what the equinox means. And it's very different from the solstice. Yes the solstice is is different. The salsas is where the sun appears to to move back down it. It gets higher and gets lower in the sky on in one hemisphere and higher in the sky the other as they see some progresses and then it stops and starts moving down. That's when the sun starts moving back towards the equator arsov is our our our june and december where the seasons the. Oh because we were all taught in school. And i blame. I blame sin bridge for this. We're all taught in school. That spring was february and awesome was august and november was. But when you pick up this as to astronomic detail it tells us that. September is awesome so astronomy says awesome. It's september yes but of course it's it's all to do with how we perceive it in how we experience at our traditional dates for the beginning of spring at the beginning of autumn are more agricultural. They have to do it. It takes a while so the effect of the sun. You know to change so your your your crops aren't going to be instantaneously different when they're lit by some differently so it does take a bit of time. There's a bit of lag. Does a bit of early nece. Each each area of the world is a slightly different perception of when spring and autumn start. And of course. Pj we could turn this entirely on. Its head. I'm pointed out that of course tomorrow evening tomorrow. Evening is the beginning of spring. If you're down in australia there is so all of our all of our friends and many relatives. Of course many people have relatives in australia. I mean australians would be enormously offended by hearing us describe this as as the autumn equinox for them. It's the vernal equinox. it's the spree. Say that that that is to leo. You know what's fascinating about. All of this is that it always happens the same time in the year you could literally you could set your watch by. You could set your clocks play this that this happens. This is the miracle of the great universal homelessness. Well just be. We need to be careful. Pj to remember when we talk about our clock by something. We're actually only going back to one thousand nine hundred sixteen. We're only going back to the beginning of the last century because before that there was no standardized time to china in galway was different than the time in cork. The time in cork was more or less the same time in dublin. Because you know they're on they're on a similar latitude but the or is it long your life. I get confused sometimes but but you know they're. They're equally spaced from say. Shall we say london the center of the empire whereas galway the sunsets. Quite a few minutes later so our perception of of of time both in terms of hours minutes and seconds and in terms of the seasons varies depending on where we are on the planet. But it's all. I think that's the best thing i learned today. A didn't know. What though is that. Today is a day when the sun shines at both the polls and it doesn't happen again until what we would call the springtime. Leo always a pleasure to speak with you. On the opinion land that is the endroits space correspondent for me. September is awesome. And i have the proof in front of me. I mean up to see there.

You watch what happens if someone gets frisky at a particular time of great bishop british bake off. Because it's the time your life is at its highest and then the problem is you're trying to watch great british bake off in your other half in the morning as is the other half has different ideas and then in the morning time. You're trying to listen to casey and ross and and your other half has different ideas to and it's all mismatched and it can cause problems in the relationship because guess what our sex drive's don't peek at the same time for everybody every day if we're very boring world if we did but after carolina west is host of the glow west podcast carolina. Good morning to you. Good i am. I am trivializing here. But there's a there's a question amount of mismatching out there. Turkey is nearly forty percent relationships. Their their sex drive's don't match up there their teams as should be saved. Their best times are not. The same answer looked into that. The interest of life especially during apartheid damage could work in kids the laundry. All that kind of thing so it's almost a wonder at all that we even managed to have sex in the first place let alone earlier gender differences as well so am. I think it's really important that it's something that people try and stay on top of because before you know it could be you know weeks or months that that's it by before you have sex on on the terms that everybody wants to have sex in so there's a lot of compromising communication to be heads you couple. That really no one of the will know that there's no point in even bringing the subject up right now whereas another time just the slightest suggestion and way which it's it's it it you know you you get to know your partner absolutely but again. It's resides in sex drive's can change over time especially for women. We have things like the menopause to deal with. You know a regular menstrual cycle as well so you know. Sometimes we might feel in the meta ten o'clock at night but maybe not the day before your periods star sore. All those kind of things as well so that a lot of men don't have to deal with third they're kinda ready to go a lot of time So it is important to to talk and compromise.

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.

"I met the residents and their families it was actually this week was tuesday evening last beautiful evening we were down to the grounds of the center. I met a number of people including maureen whose sister is in our sorry. Her brother is in the centre with a number of years and she was the one who brought this to our attention in the first place and just a snatch of that particular interview as a response to this tape. We have in front of us now which talks about consultation consultation consultation. Let's have a listen. To what maureen had to say. Maureen was through new. We first heard about the closure of the planned closure here. Have you any more information than you had been. And no rate in us. I have been relentless. In my pursues of information and example i wrote to the t shirts office and That's letter was passed onto the decision. Makers they hit. You see who passed back saying you know. The residents deserved better than what they had here. there is no better bus. The point deposit is as well. You know there's been a continuous answer from the management of the hate to see that they are communicating with residents and relatives and that has not been the case at all to. You're saying they believe. Been talking to people in the last week or two. We all got a phone call last friday to set up meetings for this week so i've had the meeting in which i was told what we have no further information. So there you go. That's the response now. Admittedly that recording is a week old. Something else may have happened in the interim so we allow that possibility to be true but this statement is very similar to a statement we got in the summertime which effectively said the place wasn't fit for purpose we're following with interest eighteen fifty seven one five nine nine hundred sixty. Take a walk if you will through cork city next weekend and have a look at the derelict. Buildings that is the proposition from frank. O'connor frank has spoken to me many times before the program about the amount of dereliction in our city and about particularly the number two buildings laying there adl empty and derelict and cold and damp and disused with trees and bushes grope inside the that could actually be turned around and turned into housing and turned into places for people to live and raise their families. Frank good morning to you or gamonal jane. Thanks for having me on. Again i thought. Oh you're your full with interest because what happens is i go crikey that place. We have so dereliction inner-city absolutely absolutely really. I mean we suppose relieved at indian transforms cock city and also right across our. You know very much about. I suppose inviting people to take a fresh look city with us you know we. We talk beautiful. It's got wounded texture. It's got prices heritage and we wanted to celebrate. What's what the beauty of the city before it's too late. Call we news too much lower so this is an opportunity for people to come along and walk with us though. Be like portrayed become stations. There'll be music but look at the city refresh and home that people can then make their own judgment in terms of perhaps take feedback in today's city development plan which is due to response to do by the ford october. Your citizen education aspect as awareness aspect. And hopefully it will begin to see anything regenerate the historic core cock would really try again. Remember taking try around the north side of the city with a deputy thomas gould. We we drove around for an hour. So one day just pointed out buildings to me that were niamh empty and derelict for years. That could quite feasibly have been taken over. When they became empty and housing put in their lap harpen slats houses. whatever even for business premises. We've huge and it's being allowed. It's being allowed to fester year in euros absolutely paycheck. It's it's an equal dereliction. It's the juicy. I mean really. We have left is like you say gold for decades a lot of properties. The we've we've shared with jude over the last year he would have come back and said look up places. Sixty years is twenty years tortilla shocking tongue. Friends really an expose this freeze assistance. It's notable personalized agenda assistance. Your to break down the social contract where wasting resources would affected people's mental health safety when you walk down your street decaying heritage and like you say it's about providing homes for everyone. We walked simplifying. Look up everyone should have a hold everyone church so much playing craze. Evan should vaccinating for work if we turn these derelict. Vacant buildings around and provide spaces for people to have homes to walk into play. Uncork could really try. I mean we could brand not just in ireland but internationally it could attract so much investment talented people tourism. You're able to compete such a better level. You know in for us you know. It is shocking single hopper but there is still a possibility to turn around just walk The next as you know we're hoping many people could come along every means welcome. You know it's going to be a celebration what we have as much as about as delta dr next we'll talk about different buildings as we go along and talk about potential say what it could potentially be and and really suppose we'd like is for people to be able to move back to the cities and for families spent delivery again. Pj everyone communicates an eight year old city. We all really loved the city university. It's a beautiful place but it is sad. Think it's decayed so much but imagine if we did told up our own jay tourist starts in blarney street. And we'll finish at the former adams factory down on the docks one of the buildings you pass on the way. Look it's only been it's only been a year and a few months. Both the dams building is empty and and doesn't seem to be anywhere near being taken over anytime soon. Although we're open to correction on that. I think that's an illustration isn't it of dereliction in the middle of our main street absolutely absolute- in you know what we need to do it. Artem has been neat. Set a proactive bringing new measures. I notice talks. The moment vacancy taxes and stuff. But some of the You're looking at other measures as well. would not be a wonderful space for for creatives practice for communities to use it in the meanwhile in between what happens next. So we've got a. There's a concept called mean more use in his communist countries like the netherlands and denmark and stuff where buildings like that give to the community that time periods in between maybe developing face. You know it's sort of facts to bring life back again in your rights. Not just having him saturday when you walk down. Patrick st three so much vacancy. It's our breaking and it does make i suppose for people nighttime. It makes a safe as well as you said. He's a great example. And i think those required look. It's highly unlikely to be fair. The way business works. It's highly unlikely that that building will remain empty forever. There's going to be something into it if the matrix highstreet business but it's an example exactly exactly and there's a lot more of those around you know and it's like you say it's it's it's about a city that we all love and we all want to do better. I think recognizing that our historic foreign car is internationally significant and if if we did rejuvenate as reformers two buildings obviously waste. We're bringing back skills. They're needed creating jobs. The lower konami troy people will go to mo- cafes and restaurants. It's all that wonderful thing. I mean when we moved back here two years ago. Judy we were stroke with that. Rents specie in. I suppose really since status but that's been our mission trying shine a light on us when people look recognize what you have. Maximum potential uncertainty through your twitter. Feed the end the photographs. You put up. You've certainly got me thinking here. Every day of the week and places that are derelict.

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.

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.

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
Bourbon, Banter, and the Best of 2020!! - burst 02
"Welcome back everyone to the broken court. Podcast episode to who. I'm dan aaron jake and right. Now i'm gonna throw it over to my man aaron for our toast since it's real close to valentine's day.

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. They on the mississippi river in an o o h ingram. Born and so really. Yeah so they have Redone this barge completely rick house out of it and so what

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.

Are Probiotics Ready for Practice?
"My first faculty position was a minority turkeys was introduced a college in dublin and was a gastroenterologist. They're not keeling was a very good friend of mine. He persuaded me that. The brain got access was relevant in relation to psychiatric illness at that time. Dopey really considered microbes within the got to be relevant in relation to the brain got access. And when i came back to cork seventeen or eighty years ago. A group of micro biologist and gastrologist decided that they're going to set up a new at brain got institute which we set up so i was involved in setting it up and at that stage. People thought michael might be important in relation to the brand. It wasn't at all clear so we begun researching the area. And i've been working in that area now for the past seventeen eighteen years. I'm a psychiatrist. And i decided at the very beginning that if we were going to engage in this research that we are going to publish the best journals out there because it's an emerging discipline. There's a certain degree of skepticism. About self our initial publications would have been been john peony s to the nineteen nineties. The general sense i got was that the brain is protected from the rest of the body by a tight web called the blood brain barrier other than stroke and a crane disorders and a few infections. There wasn't much that got in their back then. Psychopharmacology was all about synoptic festivals and neurotransmitters. But things have changed one landmark that stands out to me was two thousand thirteen. That was when dr trolls raisins group at emory published. The first randomized controlled trial of a medication that treats depression without even crossing the blood brain barrier. How did it work with saudi getting into the brain. The thought was that it treated depression. By reducing inflammation in the body. The medication was to the crisis factor antagonised inflexible and worked for treatment resistant depression but only in those who had elevated markers of inflammation like crp. You're probably not going to be using inflexible matt in everyday practice because it has to be given. Iv among other things but in this journal we featured a few articles lately on how to treat depression by reducing inflammation and dr dina's work on probiotics and the mind gut connection is one of them. But first let's hear from dr dean about what the gut microbiome is. The god microbiome is essentially the collection of micro organisms within the intestine. Now the majority of them are in the large in stein and the beat assed volume is carried bacteria. Now there are obviously viruses and fungi. There there are a variety of microbes. But we've largely focused on bacteria the golden microbial over navarine adult like you are. I is at least a kilo gram and weight. So it's it's quite a large wage. It's it's pretty much the same way. As the human brain really traditionally. We've always taken the view that their commencement. They don't do anything any harm there. There we feed them because we feed these bacteria as well but it really is only one in the last fifteen years that people have begun to realize that in fact there really is a synergistic relationship between these microbes and dos and was we might feed them that they in turn produce chemicals that our brain and other organs in our body absolutely choir how these gut bacteria influence the brain when i think they influence the brand in a variety of ways that be one of our database of boll is big areas of research over. The years is trying to anything. There are lots of unknown questions but the narva security very important majority. It's a long meandering nerve. It sends signals from brain. To got it sends signals from the brain we showed in taper in peony s their own twelve years ago. That sir microbes could only communicate with the brain. Is the vegas nerve was intact. So we did a gossipy in an animal. The microbe couldn't communicate with the brain. So the vegas nerve has very important author important.
An Excerpt from the book From Clutter to Clarity: Clean Up Your Mindset to Clear Out Your Clutter by Kerri Richardson
"From clutter to clarity cleanup your mindset to clear out your clutter by carry. Richardson clutter is a multifaceted multi-layered phenomenon. That has little to do with you. Being disorganized in everything to do with the important role it plays in your life if there are things thoughts or people in your life who don't contribute positively to what your health and happiness. Then you've got clutter. Dirty overarching categories of clutter. Simple which is easily cleared and stubborn. Which is stubborn stubborn. Clutter is comprised of symptomatic. Clutter in core clutter. Remember this difficult to clear clutter is never about the stuff is about what the stuff represents whatever clutter you struggle with the most is where you'll find the most poignant learning opportunities about yourself your values in your mindset the tactics. You used to distract yourself or procrastinate. Give a peek into the core causes of your clutter. What's really stopping you from. Clearing it unpacking the concept of clutter when you think of clutter stacks of paperwork piles of clothes or toys strewn about your family room. Probably come to mind but clutter comes in many forms. Despite the success with downsizing physical. Clutter that i shared earlier. I still have one hotspot. That troubles me again. And again i struggle to get rid of it for thirty years and while it had some success it seems to inevitably return my stubborn clutter. Hotspot my weight. Yes the pound my body. I realized thinking of clutter has more than just stuff is pretty revolutionary and clutter. Revolution is just what you need. Approaching the removal of all kinds of clutter from a truly holistic place helps remove the shame related to it allows you to see the intricacies in this multi-facetted process. There are three main categories of clutter and each one is defined by how challenging. It is to clear number one simple. Clutter if you're able to get rid of it without much effort than it simple. Clutter because there aren't it in layers compounding. The situation clearing simple clutter is just a matter of making the time committing to the task and getting it done for example with my stubborn weight. Clutter the simple clutter would be the pounds can lose with little or minimal effort. They're not hanging on because of any bigger issue by eating better and moving more. These pounds come off relatively easily number. Two symptomatic clutter if he struggled to make the time. Make decisions or let things go. You're dealing with symptomatic clutter. You're sure you're ready to let it go but you can't seem to finish the job. Something is holding back and you're not sure what this is. The most common kind of clutter and is an indication that something deeper and unrelated needs your attention number three core clutter. This represents those deeper issues that lie within or underneath to symptomatic clutter. This is the source of all other clutter and is the reason binder inability to make progress cork letters rarely if ever the i kind identify similar symptomatic. Clutter points you in this direction anytime. You're feeling stuck frustrated or lost. Their is core. Clutter in play while this may seem intimidating realizing that there is more going on is like picking up the shovel. You may not know what you're digging for and that's okay. Just start digging. When you dive into the core clutter. I guarantee you. They will positively impact all areas of your life when you sabotage your progress in any way. Some part of you is benefiting from that stumble if my expectations for weight. Loss are unrealistic. Then my resistance is going to win may be amusing. Wait as armor to protect my and vulnerability when what i really need to do is set some boundaries. Perhaps the pounds are validating a limiting belief that. It's not safe to be thin if any part of me believes. I don't deserve to be treated well. I could be proving myself right by eating healthy foods. The core clutter is the message in the mess this is. What is rumbling. Underneath stubborn clutter. And this is what your soul is asking you to work on to break free from the obstacles in your path. Pay attention to the chatter over the years. I've discovered that in my own life and in the lives of those i've worked with the source of core clutter is any combination of three things unrealistic expectations limiting or old beliefs and a lack of boundaries understanding. Which of these things is at the root of your struggles will help you. Better understand ultimately clear the clutter in your life as you investigate the message in your mess. You might find the cause to be one or a combination of the three because one 'cause often leads to another. You'll likely find more than one at work.
The link between wine corks and climate change
"If you open a bottle of champagne or wine this new year's eve take a look at the stopper in recent years. Plastic stoppers and screw tops. Have come on. The market as alternatives ten natural cork but court can be better for the climate cork is harvested in the mediterranean from the bark of cork oak trees. Process does not harm the tree and the bark regrows but the first harvest cannot begin until the tree is about twenty five years old. You can only harvest at oak every nine years. But because they live hundreds of years you actually get to harvest them. One thousand nine thousand nine hundred twenty two times. Carlos does use of amorim cork says cork forest store a great deal of carbon and manufacturing cork stoppers creates little carbon pollution to minimize waste and how power manufacturing production plants often burn cork dust and in the case of amran sixty five percent of our energy needs comes from the dust generated by the production of cork stoppers. Independent studies have found that there is far more carbon stored in a single natural cork than is emitted to the atmosphere by producing it so using cork instead of plastic or aluminum. Stoppers is not only traditional. It's more sustainable.
Scientists search for ways to lock more carbon in the soil
"Plants absorb carbon dioxide as they grow and store it in their roots stems and leaves but when plans decompose much of that carbon returns to the atmosphere joanne. Corey is a plant biologist and geneticist at the salk institute for biological studies. Her team is working to develop new plant varieties. That can lock more carbon in the soil long term. She says these new plants need to have more and deeper roots. In order to bury the carbon down deep where there are fewer microorganisms that can decompose the plant and made all the company go back up in the atmosphere correy says the ideal plants will also have high concentrations of a molecule called subaru which is found in cork it holds a lot of carbon and breaks down very slowly. The project is in its early stages right now trying to understand what those traits really mean in terms of jeans with that information. Researchers can selectively breed those traits or engineer them into widely grown plants such as corn and wheat. These owners of crop plants. Because you really need a lot of land you do. This corey hopes that in ten years. These climate-friendly crops will be growing in farm fields around the globe. Climate connections is produced by the center for environmental communication

"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. It must the nines and if you WANNA plant a new plant growth of new plenty of Pasta with highly suggest to get your. Winds from nursery. And not from your neighbor. and. Invest their lot that expensive there ten, ten, twelve dollars apiece if you..

"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. But you know there's always person that needs to hear it. No no shame. No judgment Those are not added in there from the..

"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.

"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..

No kidding were together all the time which I mean being in the wind industry for sure has had a huge impact on our family. Just because we've been able to integrate our kids in the business are we have a lot of family members back on the West Coast is that are in the business so it's really afforded us a lot of opportunities that having another type of job and so now I didn't ask. We're grateful for it but I would say that we. We are grateful for the wine industry in our part in it so thirty four to the future for yourselves. I think just that we continue. Can you to be able to do what we do. I mean we definitely don't take lightly that people buy our product and come to see us and our support of us us and the wine industry in general but we definitely like to see an increase in tourism and visitation. Good wines minds being made in this part of the state part of you know just more of the same this a lot of a lot of Nice people that come out to visit in wineries and encourage everybody to come out content. Keep it up so customers come to visit. I don't know if it's as much what we want them to know. But I I think what we would like for them to. Experience is like just real genuine desire on our part to provide them with an excellent Zlin experienced. What educational tasty? They find a wine that they really like and that they have a nice time here. We hope they're treated treated well that we always wanted to be a small winery. We have worked at large wineries but our stylists to be small and intimate and going forward in the future we like to do a lot of more intimate events. We kind of like the idea of hand selling selling a bottle of wine and you know helping people understand why what we do is important to us and having been part of it is important to us and so did that into question. I mean we we want. It's not our home on but we want people to feel like that there as welcome as it would be on this. You know. It's important to us so he wanted Komo today to share losers. It seems so self serving but now I mean. Where's the thank you for doing this? Being interested in our industry and heart of it and as well as the customer I think though is going to preach a little bit when you're a consumer in North Carolina and then you buy. He's an agriculture realize. What's happening now? You're you're keeping an hand open that's at culture. You're not a free something from where carbon footprints on the thing about you know you. I think some of the choices we make here to make. Wine are very very little consciously. Now that's the honest truth.

Do the book said You our marketing and take care of the team so in the events that for doing for thing very cool so now what interested you both in meet where one of those people that had needed Renaissance Fair for the first time. Yes it's like. Did we meet some friends years later. That were making their me. Relate to set super cody can make your own. Let's tell me this and so we got a way making kit e end. Basically mean for Stanton he'd and we had so much fun with it two weeks slavery were making their second batch in two weeks after that Indicate what can we throw took fruits spices. What else can we go in different honey and it was what fun we were making way more than we could trip seventy? We're giving away three to our friends at this. The best news ever debottling your and we don't so about two years in. We actually entered Iraq on the Internet sensation festival competition. Where two hundred? In twelve competition we entered three in one of our means took the gold medal in its category than the judge the nine gold medal winners against each other. It best in show at two hundred twelve. Meanwhile on her first competition and we were we were actually happened to be there and we were like an John's hit the floor and we could not believe that we were shocked. And we're like in the plane on the way home. What were you know we need to do this real job? This is. This is crazy and and we're both working in corporate America time there were layoffs doing both of our companies. And let's start working on a business plan to see what we have to they do. This also became home. We're on the business plan. Thanks and weekends and literally a month after we won the award at laid off for my corporate the job. And we're like okay designed for the universe that we need to you know create fuxin around on weekends and do it for real and so I started taking in classes I fell. LLC people were ready to go in and we had found location that we really liked and the the German contractor told us would be six months before it was ready for us to start our building and stuff like okay cool and so I saw actually a local winery. That hadn't add up for for somebody to work in their tasting room until I went in and told them what we were doing reading a job there and started working with them. I was real honest about it. Because you know I didn't want them to be surprised when I left and six months and six months the contractor said six months six warmer for two years it. It was interesting because at that point we decided to do location. We looked for another location and founded the building that we ended needed a police thing but what was funny about it is. I am positively convinced if we had opened when we I thought we were ready it would have been at the beginning Of the lost. The word could do socially in procession to designate recession. Yeah and we would be business now unsure of it but because we had back to your delay and then another bill out some things like that we ended up opening in two thousand ten in business and a half years now and growing so we kind of exciting awesome. So when is that first batch of that made you realize. Oh my gosh I have to do this. What was the first steps that when we work work? What was the first batch that we made? What was the first specially made said? Although it's funny 'cause we never made one like it was a traditional it but it was And it was made with clipper hunting and it was We boiled honey not boiling it but bringing it to one hundred sixty degrees the molding it there for twenty minutes to pasteurize it and and it's it's a process that a uh it yielded good results but we realized we don't like doing that and it didn't it ended up stripping flavors from Anita. I didn't want to do that now or ever sense but that was the first one when we tastes. Actually it was so much fun making it that we before even tasted it. We are making our next batch number expense enter very cool. What's funny about that is okay okay just a little bit? It was mediocre not three it was mediocre but we misplaced bottle of it in the bottom of our pantry entry which we found and so when we opened our new business in two thousand ten. We actually took that out and decided to toast host the new business with a bottle of the very first meet that Betas who meet makers and it was amazing after aging out pervert for years. uh-huh oh my gosh shows you meet Canadian very very cool. So let's talk about the name starlight. It seems obvious. Is it as obvious as it seems. It's not as obvious to everybody. Remember last name the so when when Becky was laid off from her job one of the packages which is that she got was to be able to take. Small businesses were different types of vocational classes. And one of the ones that she took was starting your own business and the recommendation wireless. If you're GonNa Start Your own business in order to avoid other people's business his name's use your name in Your Business and with the name star is just natural to to use that.

"Style here and seven total. And that's the fuel. He you get a challenge that I think, all wine regions, have east of the rocky mountains is that we have humidity pressure. If you look at the at the wife of the grape grape is born it's all as no sugar. And then it ripens this ripening curved, and you measure that this bricks or sugar wells. And then when it gets to twenty one twenty two on people don't really appreciate is that the ripening stops. So we get the twenty one twenty two with consistency in California, or other aired desert errors. They get the twenty one twenty two both get to the same ripening point. And it stops, but what happens is Linda stop, when the ripening stops skins, get very soft blood disease, crusher, and we have disease pressure in spades. We have all the, you know, on the apocalypse sites, whereas in the air air. Areas. Nothing happens. No. He doesn't right this mcleod's. So what happens is from twenty one twenty two bricks it just e hydrates on lines. So it doesn't get any riper it just the hydrates. So we both get to that into the writing cycle that we have to pick a twenty one twenty two and they say, you know what I'll come back in a month, and I'll pick a twenty seven twenty eight bricks. So what happens is, they're basically losing water. So they're wine is more, fruitful. It's more Dr it's structured whereas winds east of the Rockies they don't have the profile, but they're beautiful, but the more aerobatic and floral, and that's fine. But that's not the start line. I like again, you got to have a house style. So for me, this is disastrous problem because I want to drink. What I like. So I just researching tonight, stumbled upon the fact that my father's nor the part of Italy. And the area called the Benneteau with they make a wide called Amarone, if you had before system monsters, it's huge yet, darts, high alcohol, everything I love with there. And I said, how do you guys make this wind because you're, you're in the wettest part of Italy, whether like, we, we drier wines, and I go, what do you mean? And that's what I learned how dry their wide. So they pick a twenty one twenty two sugars just like me do because they have to. But that is huge drying rooms with the racks and put grapes, while Costa at times drying rooms close the door, and through dehydration, thirty days or some cases, longer, they opened the germ organ, grinder back, and they come in at twenty seven twenty six so they replicating what happens in nature of the hydrogen. So I went there. And I learned how to drive, the Mazi family may sl very famous fan. They've written a lot of papers and nutrition and the process is called opossums Gento in Italy, which means to make raisins, and drying rooms are called food tiles for fruit drying room so works as degrades commended twenty one twenty two the go into the tiles, you undergo the positive mental drying process, when they come out, they're grapes, are called casino, grapes, and dried grapes. And then they go to normal process of end an intermediate step before they get processed. We get the quad kind of west coast fruit. The, the disadvantages is. I'm sweating off twenty percent of the water. I was twenty percent lying down for a while. Okay. You're but members just water. So when you look at our wines, alcohol's much higher here and wine is darker, fruitful in. That's just not assist the Stein like so what are some things you have to look out for when you're taking that whole process? I know there's hazards of making wine throughout the entire process. But specifically with drying are there, any cautions, the to watch out, it'd be very careful because the grapes, are sort of sitting in a room drying out. So about two years ago, we bought an ozone machine and the thought process was, how do they dry fruit? How'd you dry pineapple or banana and what they do is they put him his drivers, and they shot? It was ozone and kills everything in their own kills people. I've only watched four or five guys. So, so be shocked room completely inert, and then we close the door. And what happens is, is the grits beautifully dry with no disease before we did that we would lose a lot of the net the natural environment. Now we have a hundred percent retention grapes machine was a huge huge thing us. So how much the crop easier do you drive? Yeah. So net depends upon the weather, so I two thousand seventeen which was probably the best weather, we've had ever, meaning dry and sunny. We turned down dehydration Tony about ten to fifteen percent where two thousand eighteen very wet rainy. We, we had the head Gracia up to twenty thirty percent reason why we do this is that we're trying to give our customers consistency of product. The worst thing is that you come on year two different from the next year. It's okay if some sort of very Asian. It'd be like McDonald's, either words uniform, but you wanna have some relative consistency. And so that the drying process Mazas to modulate with the environment given us and the last year was the eighteen was the worst weather. We've had ever and we pushed drying to the limit allow. Okay. Yeah, I know a lot of places throughout the rest of the state. They're not drawing their grape. So they're making focusing on rose as and things like that. So with pushing the drying to the limit for you, are you really focusing more on still developing your big reds, or are you doing lighter varietals, or lighter vintages? I hate white everything, right? A big monster. Red tapa guy. Okay. So it would something is, is not successful. I think what you do or just rather making a rose. AA is you can you can declare advantage and blended into dorms. I think sometimes if wise that up to standard I just dump it. Dump it. I think. Joan. I've talked about this before it's something that the state really needs to embrace a little bit more is focusing on that non vintage thing because you really wanna take the best of what you have instead of just putting out something that's a little less. In fact, we're going to have a couple of vintages to ten curtain on vintage for this engine say, because it just got absolutely hammered by the hurricane. So we're doing. Seventeen we were quite heavy with fruit and his great year. So I'm gonna put it. Seventeen eighteen word. Vintage remember nine hundred ten years, and champagne vintages suck. So we okay. And, you know, I make grind reserve only I only designate that certain years. Yeah. So eighteen was ground preserving so you mentioned on puck about that. And what how what makes that one special I wanted to plant a flag that just not a bunch of jokes in the backwoods trying to make red wine that we can make red wine. They can challenge some of the best lines. And so what I did was this some experimentation, which actually changed the course of the winery. So when I research, about my family and how the dried wines and stuff like that, I discovered also that a long time ago. They didn't end stainless steel for mentors. They wanted in oak. And so I bought some oak fermenters and love with this, and I think we're getting more by despond four olds from enters and because you're introducing would old. To grapes and finished one because most time. You see it as win. It's already been ours for minted introduce pre fermentation and then also discovered my studies that farmers were quite poor longtime ago and they basically only had one tank, so essentially Basie raise Ray Jonah went into same thing, same time. So that process is called coal from tation. So when the guardian reserve I said, let's co for mid segment Tino, Mark Pajaro. In oak, and see how it goes. So step was we took our best type Tino, best channel dried him to one third way loss. Co from into them to Saint time at oak, and this is probably the most exceptional that I've ever made in wanted to have a designation. So it's only one that doesn't have the same way -able away label was. And we put a bungled beyond heirs when you when you look, if you hookah bumblebees nature doesn't know how they fly on the Windsor, too small flap fast enough to the body, yet they fly through the sheer force of desire, just throw themselves defined nature. So I shouldn't make a winus good. I defined age. This is my bumble bee blind and wanted to price at fifty five dollars because this is the best of doing it, and I feel we can rival festive for Jinya, which is twice as much as by the way fifty five dollars. You're out of your mind. Never gonna so no one is above the value price point of Carolina. I made two hundred cases it west four months while so I think, you know, again have to fight the race the quality. The qualities dare race to the bottom, and that's a corpse Kirk, and nobody wins incomes, Kurds. You have to be massive mechanisation. So my thing is, is vineyard do just focus at the best and that will help your brand. Don't try to be everything to everyone thirty wives. Just five or six at the fine, who you are? Because people raffled any Senator southern reds, Dr wise, don't we have no sweet here tweets discussed being eight it, we have a very tight niche in that following we build our, our brand. So with the differences, you take with the ground reserve the oak from enter the co for mutation. What do you feel that does to the wine itself? How do you think that it's makes it stand out above the others? What the co from tation really does is the old one. Plus one three because you marry them as fruit and this is the this is the mystery here because because we also did experiment. District the same grapes. And permitted them separately, and is completely different taste. I can't explain why. But it was it was much more the Cobra mutation way more complex more things going on. So I tried to call from it everything now as much as possible, cool, not just for the grind. I think this is marrying his grapes, as it's old school. I mean we try to look for technology, but oak from Dacian things better than stainless Steel corP -tations better than singular permits. So I think when you look back in his you can learn more than looking forward sometimes try to extrapolate. A big fan of big fan of cultural tation nice kind of creates a more. Well, the negated final products much in the wind is, you know, it's because we push the drying to the very high levels. You're talking sixteen seventeen percent. He's big lines. Most people go home. Happy.

"Really. So that was as one. And then we spent a year just kind of getting ready because it was overgrown, and it was a lot of was Cimber some timber needed. But it was just a needed to be sculpted. So I didn't go into ground in two thousand two and it says mentioned before because you didn't know what was going to work for your I decided to plant a lot of different varietals to see. So we planted about fifteen varietals northern Italian French, and that was thirty acres right off to shoot. Call experimental projects going on and then over the life of the next seventeen years, we, we went up to forty two acres planet and ripped out all forty two acres two times while, so the entire vendors been repaired twice. Okay. It's all really about finding the, the best grapes, that are going to work for what it is. You're trying to do exactly. And I think this also goes to the very first starting point that I had is your need to know what style of wine, you want to make. And that tells you where to where to put your vineyard, and then what grace to grow was kind of a three step process, and I like big structured, reds and therefore, needed have enough heat and need to be rocking in for it'll needed to figure out varietals. So the first mistake, I made with a lot of north at times, because I love Barbara Nebiolo, the promise is not a northern time. Climate, you know, it's more of a central to southern tank, so as they drifted through the south of my plantings did the send you the monthly jobless segment, Tino, they tasted like these grapes, are supposed to taste like so. That's what that was part of that shifts. I ripped out the French because I just hate anything. Nothing. Scientific than that. And then problem would also discovered is is that you might have the right great blinking light have the wrong Cologne short in, particularly with the thin skin. Great the coal variation is critically important. So even if we had the right Sanjay. Basically the wrong quote, we still ripped out. So we're at the point now where we still have only thirty three acre sparing because we're in the final stages of finishing up the point. Eight some people, you're mad roofing that out. But I think this is the outcome is that you have an average grape gives you an average wine in ripping on degrade this much cheaper than having nobody wants to bind. Sorry bottled exactly as a traitor. The first thing you weren't is to cut losses early. This will pull it out and try again, so and vines can succeed eighty years. So why not have something that can run the distance? And if you're going to be producing mediocre wine for sixty eight years. That's just that's not a good way to move forward. Exactly. And it's more expensive than ripping fines. Yeah. Absolutely. So what varietals do best and then you're the reds, the ones that do best are the Senju base ace edgy basic courses, the same grape used to go to county for county, mud Pacino, which unlike said you Basie, which comes from Tuscany mocked, the child of the province, Puzo woman mother is from and center. Tino comes to the province of Bloomberg. He's. East of Tuscany? So all of these different types of all deep depressed, send you more romantic China more fruitful segment, Tino, more Tanic industy, and dry. He's the main three reds that we have we do keep a widow of Petit for though, but I caught the euro so she because I'm not gonna keep adult and has blending purposes. And the terms of the white, we only make was light. And that's not Tino, which comes from Serbia, so I think, reason we only have for is we want to concentrate into weld north through with the old story of smucker's jellies. So it was very famous case study about thirty years ago where Safeway supermarkets divided their stores and fifty side and one of the fifty stores they had twelve different types of jellies that you could buy and the other fifty you have five. And to their surprise the one that had five outsold the one that had twice once choices because people over choices. So that's why would never make more than seven wines ever in this is I think they have more of that as too much of your customers aimed, frankly. How can you specialize thirty things as second? Four or five major drives me nuts in restaurants, when you go and you see this giant book of, like, hundreds of different dishes. It's like what's the best thing? You're trying to cater to much the cheesecake factory. It's insane. Yes. Definitely Beja, pasta afraid. Kill your spiral bound out. Yes. Pretty much saying. Yeah. Many to choice. So you mentioned that you're entering kind of the, the final phase or what you're thinking of being the final phase for the vineyard. So what else is left for the vineyard? Yeah. So is to plant more of what's working that we have Mike replace a couple thousand vines of segment Tino, over routine. Oh coming online. More montpe- channel, we're thinking about Barbaro, but I'm not sure do well here because it's Lord of thing that I think we're just planning for the same. So the goal is release to have seven wines right now we're about five thousand cases or goes to be about seven thousand thousand everything. Yeah, that's it. So our goal is to do it would have been better every year than custody. Introduce new widened, rather be know, for certain Senate wise and something new cutting out, let's talk a little bit about the winemaking style

"Uh-huh. Thing. And I'm at the NC wind. Guys, welcome to corporate up in this episode we sit down with Jay raffle, Dini abruptly vineyards in Ronda, North Carolina. Jay was a lot of fun to talk with we enjoyed his passion for making great wine and discussed how he's bringing that to life here in North Carolina planning a vineyard in North Carolina was a risk that Jay embraced head off. And as he tells us, you only learn from taking risks Jay has philosophy that life is meant to be slower. Everyone at raffled any puts a lot of effort into making the whole experience, as relaxing as possible, so that visitors can unwind get away from the stress of daily life, sit back and listen. All right. So we're here today with Jay raffle Dini of roughly vineyards, J, welcomed the cork talk. Thank you. So j tell us a little bit about yourself and how you got into the one industry. So that's a long and winding road. Born and raised, Eric city. Then my crew Wall Street effect is still working Wall Street in one of things weren't very early on, when I was on the trading floor was saying is their old traders, and their volt traitors, but no old end bowl traits veggies, he's going to go, so you need to have a second act in your life that many, oh, people that work on trading floors, and it always said, finito wine, not just from an appreciation standpoint, but. But really, the communal aspects of wine and what it brings to the, the family and the friends. So that was a natural draw from me in that figure out in my career in the late twenties. Thirties, how that was going to manifest itself, whether it was through just having a fancy wide. So are actually doing more with it. Halfway ended up doing more with it in the decision on North Carolina basically made in three step process. The first step is I've working in or ruled out to west coast is just too far problematic, and then really at the time twenty years ago when I was looking to start the endeavor North Carolina where we was a wine region at the time. So I really just had three things to focus on. You have thing have the finger lakes. Upstate New York, Long Island. And, and then you have Virginia. So what drove my thought process here is the style of one. Okay. I be structured reds, so that ruled out the finger lakes right away and it had some potential for Long Island, but absolutely detest kept from. If I was dying and a desert island, you couldn't give me to drink it. So that's the main graver Virginia. So. And particularly among island. So then as I did more research, I said, well, you know, west is kind of dig into there's more to do outside of this main great. And then I discovered Carolina can popping up in the same time history grapes, and more research, I did kill people and got to meet mostly because it's even hotter here and that will get the ripeness for the regroups that it wanted. So how did you decide on your specific vineyard site at self? So that was the another interesting part of the journey because we knew have windows. No establish wine region. You had endless choices, and that can be overwhelming. Sometimes like if you're not valley, you know, you have to grow gap, whereas origin- that's not known. You just don't know what to grow, where growing so highly consultant from Napa Valley, who's in charge of the vineyards for ravens wood and make the big infantile. Nls and he was charged with finding threaten -cation. So he looked at sixty two pieces of land with found this one. And what makes one special was several things had to be the right elevations. So we're about thirteen hundred feet elevation? It had the face north and east that way, it's colder aspects and more importantly, it had to be completely infertile. Okay, because when you look at all the great Vinny tights on the world, their rocky smoking, godforsaken things and another expression that I like is an actually attacks pression is the land that farmer. Rejects the vineyard accepts that the reason is that a grapevine loss to produce much Greg spousal as you know, this is the only business where quantity quality don't are, you know are not correlated. We want the vice struggle, and this is a very poor for tilde area. It's on the slope e rocky hillside. And that's why we've heard a very interesting store. Worry about when you first came here to the, the site, you wanna go through and tell us that story. Yeah. So we had to do once we know the site down, we had to do some soil analysis to make sure is proper for tilde or infertility. And so, I was walking with a consultant, and it was an abandoned farm at the time. So there was like three cows on it and nothing going over grown. So he had a shovel and I had a white bucket, and we were going to take soil samples around into it went to places and I'm carrying this white bucket. And I noticed that wherever direction, I went with this white bucket. The cows were following. I haven't seen the cower my way. I've seen cockroaches decides cows. I haven't seen a cow. In.
