    The Wine of New York's Finger Lakes

    in Entrepreneur

    According to Wine Enthusiast magazine, in 2014 New York State ranked as the third most important wine-growing region in the US, after California and Washington state.‎
     
    In this Interview, Rachel Bovard, a fellow upstate New Yorker and part-time employee at DCANTER, will share her  impressions of the wines of the Finger Lakes.  She is a Level 1 Sommelier through the Court of Master Sommeliers and a Diploma Candidate in the Wine and Spirits Educators Trust (the pre-requisite for Master of Wine).  During the discussion Rachel will make the case for cool climate grapes, stating that lighter tasting wines should merit no less consideration than warm climate wines in California and France.

    Some of the wines and wineries she will touch on include a Cabernet Franc from Ravines Wine Cellars on Seneca Lake,  a Cabernet Sauvignon from Casa Larga south of Lake Ontario, and a dry Gewurtztraminer from Herman J Wiemer.  Others include a Cabernet Franc made from Finger Lakes grapes at the Oenology Winery in Brooklyn.
     
    We will also note some of the tourist attractions in the area and the Finger Lakes Wine Festival July 10-12 where you can  taste these wines for yourself!  A good reference for the show is Evan Dawson's book on the region, "Summer in a Glass".  


    Questions discussed on Twitter at #toastdmvbrew.

    John Rubino--The Swiss Opt Out Of The Currency Wars #2465

    in Finance

    John recently wrote, Switzerland, as everyone knows by now, has slipped out the back door of the drunken orgy that is the modern financial system. And the other revelers are wondering if it’s time to find their own clothes and start tiptoeing towards the exit.


    Because the Swiss have such a big “mind share” in the world of finance, it’s easy to forget how tiny their country actually is: Eight million people, a landmass of 40,000 square kilometers (less than half that of Virginia, for instance), and a few interesting but by no means essential exports like watches, chocolate, and pharmaceuticals. But in banking it’s a behemoth. Traditionally the place where money ran to hide, whether gold stolen by Nazis, tax revenues stolen by kleptocrats or personal wealth stashed by reasonable individuals living in unreasonable countries, it has for centuries been as reassuringly — and purposefully — boring as an aging accountant.


    In other words, the Swiss are purveyors of financial stability, which requires a rock-solid currency and predictable behavior. The franc, as a result, has for long stretches been the only fiat currency to hold its value versus gold.
