Precise blend which I have like. Some blends you know there, you can't tell one grape, the other you just tastes good but you don't really. Case, individual grapes this when you, I think you Kinda I. I quite honestly don't know taste like. A blending grape from the Rhone Valley. have before, but in a blend, so I couldn't tell you and there's all these different flavors coming in through there like each one even though there's two percent of this three percent of that in the main grape has thirty, three percent and twenty, seven percent.

Everything you add changes something you know they put it in there because they want it and there. And the OAK program the used A. Forty Percent New Oak sixty percent second and third Phil. Mostly French and American with some hung Gary O'Connor. Burian and French are pretty much the same species Americans. Different each give off different flavors. In. Every time you use Vero, the barreled gives off a little less oak. So it's forty percent new oak, which you get the full flavor, and then you get a little bit less and they do that to get the wine because this is basically a drink wine you take it home Newton, drink it. You can put it away for five or six years if you have the means to do that, but you don't have to do that. And they get the flavor exactly right where they wanted to be when it's ready to be released, which is two thousand, seventeen model. So that's what that is. This is a very good. What's at?

Pilot Calls Tower and Receives Instructions That Are All Greek to Him
"Again true pilots stories from the world of generally in this this episode a one seventy two pilot calls tower and receives an instruction. That's completely Greek to him. Of course he is flying in in Greece. This could be interesting. Bring Your Greek dictionary and ride along in say again by Carl Doorman as I entered the down wind leg of the Corfu Greece airport I contacted tower and I did not understand understand a word they said now what to do. It was nineteen eighty four and I was flying from Rhode Island to Israel in one thousand nine hundred sixty exte- Cessna one seventy two with my flight student Aria Rona the trip recently brought us through the beautiful Rhone Valley in France over the Mediterranean NC for three hundred and twenty five nautical miles in instrument conditions and route to Ciampino International Rome's secondary airport as we checked in with Roma approach at nine thousand feet requesting vectors to final at Ciampino. We could hear that the controllers were quite busy we we were assigned to holding pattern at nine thousand feet northeast over the Roma. VR which is adjacent to the Ciampino airport we were preparing to land on runway one four as advised by the Avis. So who do you think were the best air traffic controllers on the entire trip. I can tell you without hesitation. It was the Italians the controllers stepped us down a thousand feet at a time from holding pattern to holding pattern I two eight thousand feet then to seven thousand feet all the way down to one thousand feet and then vectored us to the final approach to runway one four for these controllers were so smooth and so professional as the handled us with kid gloves we switched over to one to zero point five Ciampino Tower and we're cleared to land and then guided to the runway exit where we switched to ground control and taxi to the F. B. over parking we stayed in Rome for two days to see some of the famous historical sites now it was Sunday we were ready to continue our trip the next destination Brindisi on the east coast of Italy just two hundred sixty nautical miles to the southeast we noticed that there was very little air air traffic along the way and at the airport after landing we'd taxi to the FBI to get fuel and we're surprised to find everything was closed at the Brindisi airport. We had forgotten it was Sunday. It did not occur to us that some places at the airport might be closed. We were lucky enough to meet some pilots from the local Brindisi Flying Club. WHO said they could help us? After we told them our plight their club did not usually sell fuel to pilots not members of the club but they graciously made an exception. Thank you Brindisi Flying Club. We then departed from Brindisi to the east one hundred ten nautical miles across another part of the Mediterranean Sea to Corfu an island in Greece also known as Kirk era after listening to the Kirk Avis and contacting Kirk your approach. We were advised to change to frequency one to zero point eight five and contact. Kirk here a tower. We checked in with tower on the downwind leg of runway three five asking for permission to land. I heard a clear response. That sounded to me. Something like Gorky. Mom Bit Blit Loiter. I asked the controller say again his reply. I again sounded similar to Gorky Moment Lipton. Loiter had absolutely no idea what this controller was saying to me. I thought it would be best just to broadcast my intentions and slow and clear English and proceed to runway three five which was a comforting seven thousand seven hundred hundred ninety two feet long as I continue down wind opposite might touchdown point. I again broadcast my intentions receiving again a similar undecipherable reply from the tower. I still understood nothing. I repeated my intentions again. Dan as I turned final received the same response and I landed after taxiing departing. I decided it would be a good idea to visit the tower her see the controller and find out what he said upon entering the tower as the controller began speaking to me here was the same sounding founding voice but now that I could see his lips moving. I had no problem understanding him. I discovered he understood me just fine and that he was telling telling me proceed as requested so much for English being the International Universal Aviation Language Eleven learned not understanding the tower controller is just as bad as lost come stay focused become all fly the airplane and continue your approach broadcasting your intention slowly in clear English look for any light signals from the tower our if no signals land and clear the runway as soon as possible

Is a lot of these insights are still planned today like the rhone valley in burgundy champagne like these areas that we associate with very very high quality wine. The romans found these two thousand years ago. We're still planning today like these rural areas at the at the army occupied and planted divine in order to supply the army with enough booze to keep going north or east or south or west or if they wanted to be because also the water was terror. Yes not express this enough. Everything was was filthy. Stank water was awful terrible dying of anthrax all the time it was a mess. It was a mess so wine beer course dying like senators in two thousand one. Oh man a two seat to make an anthrax joke anyway. There isn't that these that these areas area's still planted is because they're still special and the reason like vineyard survived for life for two thousand years because they have something to give all all. I'll talk about that later about viticulture and things like that so the roman empire adopted christianity as the official religion in about the fourth century century <hes> a c. n. Christian significance on wine is based on the earlier jewish beliefs which the viner the vineyard was us toward the favorite symbols of the nation of israel testament so they took this in just sort of ran with it so why became more heavily used in religious ceremonies tapis throughout like the height of the roman empire and when it fell the care of grapes and fines and things like that fell mostly to the care of like monasteries at urban than sort of setup <hes> it's argued that christian communities need for a great baseline was needed to celebrate the the eucharist which can union and it's one of the main factors of enabling viticulture to survive the fall that roman empire in four seventy six a._c.

"So there is something going on. And it's true. Well, we always used to say when I start letting about wine, but the white wine to the Rhone valley did this which is taken as acceptable. And now that it's on a much bigger scale white burgundy where so many more people chasing this white wine of choice to lay down and wait to ten integrate bottles. That's been such disappointment with the failures. That's even bottles which punks, but I some other fooled. All have naturally oxidized over fifteen or twenty years from a mine of image. They just get blamed as being post instantly. In that Roan, white example, some people not everyone have told me they think it's related to lease in the winemaking. And sometimes in burgundy I've heard people say, well, it's related to lease as well in terms of prime ox, and but how related to lease very clean pressing. And not a lot of solids, right? Was like leading perhaps the more crime oxen Berg related to the lack of lease. Yes. Absolutely. There are so many different theories about where it came from. I think there is one key aspect in general idea, which is with the huge success of red bag the being about the elegance of the grape. And how it's a about arena. And then people try to make shoddy in this really fine elegant way, but Chinese muscular wants to play American football bay or something like that is not a dancer, and you need to treat it as a muscular grape, the natural Britain's of the Vignon and the time in the Buttle bring me element of refinement to the table. So. This this word fanatic, which I'm not sure I compete the on this time because every time I told somebody about everybody seems to have a slightly different idea. What it means? But nowadays, it's often used pejoratively hate the fanatics in that wine or horrible fanatic bouquet or taste in the mouth, which is a sort of greenness, perhaps a bitterness stringency would be ready. The would. And I'm sure this is how the great majority white beg these used to be in that youth. So that picked not early, but less ripe. You didn't have the same rightness? They were often crushed which has died. I hope he's coming back a little bit before the pressing. They were pressed in the old vessel hydraulic presses which actually mashed up skins way more than the pneumatic presses. And then probably people get more of the Senate. But what is it that makes red wines? They are clearly it's the skins. Why would you not want to have some skins in you'll whites and for such a long time with the arrival of the pneumatic presses with this idea that you want to make really elegant lines. You really not using the skins soul is at all. So I'm sure that that is a key factor behind it. So I would like to see people going back to this rather more rustic almost aggressive style of making the wines. If you do that. However, you need to keep the wines quite a while before I could drink. But if you think of these ventures in the seventies, like nineteen Seventy-nine, it was huge crow people sometimes say that it's over production, which is one of the goes is of the parks, and I'm sure that's not right. But those big crops some three and seventy nine may binds concil beautiful today. Have you seen any instances where a white wine producer didn't change anything from the eighties into the nineties into the two thousand but still experienced prime ox? It's a good question because it's very hard to be show that neighbor these changed anything. Lovely story from the McKnight from police say from the super tobacco fritter Berea shuttered Barroga, and he was strongly advised by a very famous French wine critic to change from his hydraulic presses to pneumatic ones. And he didn't he's resisted he still uses the hydraulic presses today and said journalist is supposedly has been long there said onto please took my advice to keep the presses than stories true. But it has a nice ring to it. Your book is really known for talking about crews and villages of burgundy. And so I think we should spend some time doing net your book is also very good unto macaroni. But if we were to look primarily at the Cote door and start with a coat and a we around just south of Dijon. Okay. And kind of go south so from there. We'd see Marcin. Yes. Which is hoping to get some permit cruising yards..

"I imagine there was some reference points that were kind of key for you. I just wonder what they were. If you think the dodo so oldest market vision is we know, but for the still wines is the most difficult region to get a reference, I don't know what to look back to something. Like, the oldest one is about fifty to fifty seven in Albany New area. I know that the old white wines. They will made like I do today age in would Bothell much lighter. So never before my. So what I do today have similarities all the ones used to be done to drink locally there in the dough. If I want to go back in history, you really don't have anything that you can use as reference. And it's interesting because whenever you go and travel and visit the different wine regions. You really you really this make sense. And in the big mistake. He's who come to your area, and you Ripley do exactly the same soy never works. So it's interesting to see how people worked out people thought to get to certain destiny, and then that helps to find solution for your own situation your own region situations, very specific thing if you apply something from outside just straight in never works. So. Dodo for many years. The producers compare them selves with though any areas dodo region. It's much more similar to Rhone valley. The northern valid anything else. So if you want to use the reference without the that's Rhone valley. The elegant but elegant was certain point rone's like that rone's very elegant. But he's always Rhone never going to be burgundy, although it's a different region. So many of the things I do could be around verification open would vets which stems more or less long skin. Contact is exactly the same thing that win Roan even the aging in barrel. Similar not that I just doing because they do Ron just my Xidan tends to be like that. So it seems like you're already sort of on the knife edge of the challenges to bring in texture and freshness into a region, that's warm. So as climate change happens, what do you think's going to happen and twenty thirty forty fifty years. I don't know how he's going to be the future. I don't know. I was going to be the when I know that not only the the biggest change is not the climate is the viticulture once you pass from small canopy vignettes six thousand seven thousand pounds per actor to two three four thousand points per actors, high canopy Vejle the visas are more efficient, they can produce big a quantity of grapes. We the same amount of alkyl even more and with some acidity, but they lose much more any area. That is dry. The water is precious for many many as we made the effort to have more efficient, Vince, maybe the two good job and have to go back so less efficient Vince in warm areas, they would that much better to the climate change in the door valley. What will be really interesting? That is very difficult because of the slopes, it's to have tree dimensional viticulture. So when you from warm areas from three dimensional when the class is inside and you best for one dimension, only, again Vinas is more efficient, the closer more exposure, everything goes, ripe faster..

"An extraordinarily interesting gift. A new wind discovery you talked a couple of times this last year about via via is a white grape type of the Rhone valley, and there's a outfit called LA forge that makes the best of the ever tasted. It's very very affordable. In fact, all the whites I'm gonna talk about her well under twenty dollars a bottle, and they make wonderful gifts. And like I say is made by LA forge is the co op that makes it, and it's simply the best I've ever tasted. If you're tired or you one of those people ABC anything, but Chardonnay try Avia gay. I tried as a gift to share with a friend. I don't think you'll make any enemies, and you might make a new friend and you'll find new friends in that bottle of a wonderful type of way Alsatian wines are overlooked, and you know, there's many of them give somebody a governor meter Gewurztraminer. Great is the spiciest grape in the world. It's very very easy identified because of the spiciness of adult converts to meter go. So well with Asian food or even Tex-Mex food nicely and diverged meter would make a pleasant discovery to share with somebody. Governor Velten from Austria, these winds, and Hungary are just wonderful their white wines from that part of the world. Governor is a grape type. It's a white wine again with a nice Christmas city goes very very well with any kind of pan-asian type of food or for that matter anything that's real spicy. And requires a nice wine with good high acidity to it governor Belcher not to be overlooked, believe me. Of course, Soviet block is so popular and the comes from so many places in the world is I've often said you want something really interesting in the Soviet blocks. Get us out there from France, and the Loire-valley it's Sovan unblock with a PHD retaliates degree for sure it's really a remarkable expression of Soviet unblock it in my opinion, the most complex expression of Soviet down blocking the world failing that you might want to try New Zealand sauvignon block. It's put New Zealand on the white map of the world. That's for sure. Sauvignon blocks are relatively new in New Zealand, get commercial wineries, there are only around thirty years old in New Zealand, and there's one called silver beach. That's a winter. It's very modestly priced. It's really really good. How about the origin of zinfandel? Get an Italian Primitivo Primitivo is nothing more than zinfandel in Italy. This had that name for years, and until they had DNA they couldn't understand where zinfandel came from. You've heard me talk about is often referred to by winemakers years ago as American we'd because they didn't know the history of it. Well, the history is actually comes from Croatia. And then it went to Italy where it was called prematurely. Vo in the came to the United States and was called zinfandel. So maybe give somebody a primitive. Oh Abbas infantile. Let them compare torchbearers in from the low day valley in California is remarkable incidelt full full-bodied, just a robust lovely berry knows a great great Simpson. Dell and speaking of Croatian wines. There's gracious vineyard. It happens to be owned by some Minnesota folks, the Andersons it's called quarter Katharina excuse me and Gortat gathering as too big reds, a white at Arosa and believe. Maybe you'll make a friend. If you share a bottle of quarter Katharina with one of them or how about getting a Tokai Tokai was the Viagra of every mother in the eighteenth century, they keep a bottle of Tokai on their nightstand. And claimed it like I said was Viagra of the time, but you can give somebody a bottle Tokai. Even don't have to go to Cynthia one or two petunias. It's a nice sweet way to make a wonderful nightcap or try some Minnesota wines. Bailey vineyards over in Hastings they've been producing wines there for I think almost forty years. It's a very worthwhile. Minnesota project. They make very interesting why. And it's something to share a Minnesota wine with your friends. We talked a couple of weeks ago about Amoco Amoco is a talion wide, which I like to call a poor man's Amaral AMRO, plus fifty sixty dollars a bottle. This is well under fifteen dollars a bottle and you'll make yourself a new friend. The way is got a deep deep impressionable tastes kind of a chocolate. He finished amicably is a wonderful line to share with somebody kind of a new discovery or how about this. Why not give people the mother of Chardonnay the father of Pedo Nawar gives them a burgundy even something simple like a boo shard Begonia, which is a hundred percent of the war. It's really a wonderful way. You know? Comes from burgundy and France, that's his birthplace also Chardonnay. That's it's berthli. So when you buy Bergonia, Chardonnay or Begonia Pinot Noir, you're buying the original there, and that kind interesting to say, the Oregon, Pinot words are fabulous. I love him and the same thing with California, particularly the Russian river. Pinot noirs are just marvelous wage to drink until love it. But giving them a burgundy where the white originally came from is a very interesting thing. And you know, you learn something from it. Bordeaux's are always a favorite. What am I favor is one called mill as a million a thousand angels and thousand angels was bought by the van kessel family? Oh about twenty years ago, then sold that company every kiss begins with Kay jewelers. And he took that fortune and put it into this Bordeaux property that his wife fell madly in love with.

"The roane movement amounted to an opportunity for winemakers to make something that didn't really amount to an establishment vibe and they could sort of do their own thing they could frequently bland which is of course a tradition in the rhone valley they could experiment with things like rose aaa which at the time it's hard to believe were virtually not drunk at all in california and they got to really stretch their wings and feel as creative as they were you make a point in a book that one of the appeals of their winds to people were drinking them especially in california was kind of an anti establishment vibeke i think of thackery for example is some observing hey you know people really gravitated to this guy partly because the winds but partly because he just sort of fit in with the mindset of the anti establishment absolutely and i think that is really what informed is going into wind in the first place he told me explicitly as if no one was planting mierlo and i made a maher lo i would have become a mere low producer but as it happens i mean he stumbled on some of the great older preserved vineyards that had ruined varieties in the soil and so he was really one of their great actors in the early going and actually the book itself originally than planet to be so much of a history as it turned out to be i mean that was sort of an evolution for you as well right absolutely when the university of california press and i first started discussing this work we had in mind a book that they had recently published pena nawar by john winthrop's hager very good very comprehensive book but dominated in in many respects by the notion of it's being a guidebook and as you probably know guidebooks are something of a dime a dozen in in the literature and um that's fine they have their purpose uh there's a inherent problem in that they're almost instantly obsolete the moment they at the shelves but beyond that it.
