"Julie - that is a good comment. A rose has to stand up to, or pair with the vinegar in a summer salad or a spicy gazpacho."

"There are so many fenomenal white wines coming to the market from all over the world that I cannot resist trying them. This means that I consume about 70% to 30% in favor of white varietals. Not only the SB's from South Africa are wonderful,…"

"I like dry meaty roses. Yes they can be sparkling but pls. not sweet. I love it with almost everything - it has to be able to pair up against vinegar in salads or gazpacho."

"Thank you Caolyn - You have a pretty clear idea about what you expect from a rose. I agree with you that roses from South Africa of Pinotage are wonderful. I will explore more of them."

About Me:
Here are a few highlights of my doings in the wine world. There are of course a lot more details to it, but that will be for another day.

I've always had a keen interest in wine, both professionally and as a consumer/collector.

1. Traveled by car throughout Europe during the summer months of 1966 and 1967 to explore various wine growing regions.

2. Spent time while at INSEAD (MBA Business School) in France in 1968 to visit and make contacts in Bourgogne and Loire.

3. Worked as brand manager for Ernest & Julio Gallo in Modesto, CA between 1972 and 1974 to prepare for an early introduction of their products in Europe.

4. Founded a beverage importing and exporting, marketing, and sales company in Westport, CT together with two partners in 1983. Products included wine from France, Spain and California, beer from England and Germany, and cognac/brandy from France and Spain.

5. Conducted individual guided tours throughout Napa and Sonoma Valleys in the late 1980's for European wine purchasing agents.

6. Provided strategic marketing and sales planning to small wine producers in Napa Valley and M&A bankers in San Francisco in the late 1980's, and a medium sized Medoc negociant in the 1990's.

7. Assisted a major Munich brewer in the early 1990's with reformulating and repositioning their brand in the United States, and to find a new importer/marketer.

My current consulting practice since many years has very little to do with wine except that when it takes me to places around the world where wine is made, I never miss the opportunity to go for a tour of the region.

I am looking ahead into the future, and I may consider a relocation to the wine country north of San Francisco within a couple of years, as long as I will have a chance to become reasonably active within the wine industry economy of the region.

Portugal has many autochthones grape varieties, red and whites.
White varieties are very interesting, with very different characters, but SYRIA also cold Códega do Larinho is fantastic, with citrons aromas of tangerine and orange.
Portugal Dão region has the most gastronomic wines: fresh, intense, elegant with very nice acidity, made with autochthonous grapes from very particularly varieties.
Just try.
I am a producer in Portuguese Dão region, and I suggest you to taste an old Dão.

Just see what Paul White Thinks about as:

“So far, Portugal has managed to remain true to its traditions, while at the same time offering up a huge range of distinctive grape varieties and unusual wine styles precisely when many of us are tiring of endless New World makeovers of French varietals.

Dao has a lot going for it in that respect: first rate grape varieties firmly rooted in granite-based ‘terroir’ that sparkles back like diamonds, all this shaped by a growing season that’s relatively gentler and longer than other Portuguese regions. Although relatively unknown and sometimes tricky to pronounce, Dao’s red wines offer consumers genuinely new and exciting tasting experiences.”

All the best
