By Dr. Elinor Garely | Mar 28, 2013 NEW YORK - The New York Wine Expo is an annual event at Javits. Attendees with stamina and fortitude taste 760 wines from such varied locations as New York, California, Italy, Greece, Portugal, Bulgaria, and South Africa. The program included 6 workshops to assist the uninformed and/or the ill-informed about the fine art of tastings and food pairings. Sadly the workshops were off-limits to this media person so I can only offer quantitative information. Maybe next year I will be invited to attend the programs and be in a position to offer both quantitative and qualitative information.
Vineyards In India Bummer The security people at the Javits event asked for more identification than the TSA at JFK (after a bomb scare). I do not know what lists the PR/promo people use to provide a “heads up” about the event – but they must be from the Rikers Island felon list. I could not believe the number of times I had to show ID and my media invitation. To add insult to injury, the people demanding the ID must have been former government employees as customer service was in short supply.
Wineries In India Remote The event is held in a remote part of Javits – usually reserved for exhibitors that are not ready for prime time. The space is miles long and austere. The wine tables are placed in the center of this space with little more than table cloths and small signs denoting the country of origin. Many signs were hidden by bottles and people – making it a challenge to match the table/wine with the Wine Exhibitor list.

Raj Parr pours his Sandhi wines for guests at the Rosso Wine Shop's after-hours supper club in Glendale.
Winery In India , the ebullient wine director for Michael Mina Restaurant Group, would be there pouring his Sandhi wines at a supper last night, I reserved a spot.
Vineyards In India "I've hosted many more wine dinners than given one of my own," he joked. "Still getting used to the idea." When talking about his wines, Parr is completely charming and engaged. He explained that he founded Sandhi with winemaker Sashi Moorman (and Charles Banks , former owner of Jonata and Screaming Eagle). Sandhi Wines is based in Lompoc, and right now purchase all its grapes, which are all from the Santa Rita Hills, with the exception of the Santa Barbara Chardonnay.

Decanter . She is a busy person, so she enlisted Murphy to travel the states and do the hands-on research. She goes so far as to write on her website, "Linda Murphy writes particularly engagingly on the wines, wineries, and winemakers of the world's fourth biggest wine producer" – so let's give creative credit to Robinson and writing credit to Murphy.
Wines Of India Several Texas grape growers and winemakers can attest to the fact that Murphy really did her research. She spent time traveling the state of Texas – having lunches with grape growers and tramping around vineyards with viticulturists. I can only assume she did the same in other states. I cover the Southwest United States for another major British publication, so I can attest that the work here is accurate, insightful, and directly on target. Murphy's prose is clear, unsnobby, and stimulating. For anyone interested in veering outside the normal California-only books, American Wine does a brilliant job of covering the entire scope of United States wines. I give American Wine my highest possible recommendation.

MONTGOMERY, Alabama --- Alabama’s state-owned liquor stores don’t normally sell wine, but are making an exception under a pilot program seen as a way to help Alabama wineries.
Wine From India Alcoholic Beverage Control Board Administrator Mac Gipson said the agency is selling wine from Whippoorwill Vineyards in 15 stores in Montgomery and other cities.
Wines Of India Like the dozen or so other wineries in the state, Whippoorwill can’t sell its wine directly to retailers or restaurants. A three-tier system is required for alcoholic beverages -- maker, distributor and seller. Alabama’s wine-makers can sell their products directly to consumers only at their wineries.

Ed Boyce and Sarah O’Herron planted their first vines in 2003 after a lengthy search looking for farms with the worst soil. They succeeded, buying a 142-acre farm on Black Ankle Road in the rolling hills of Carroll County near Mt. Airy.
Red Wine In India The meager 1 1/2 feet of soil is 60 percent rock with a solid layer of rock below. Although this soil environment would be a nightmare for a farmer planting traditional agricultural crops, it proved perfect for Ed and Sarah’s vision of a world-class vineyard growing vinifera grapes.
Wine From India We recently met with Ed Boyce at Black Ankle Vineyards and fellow grape grower Kevin Campbell of Baltimore County’s Harmony Farms to learn how in 10 short years Black Ankle has set the quality bar for making fine wine in Maryland.
