Tootjaprofiil: Bergevin Lane Vineyards

Tootjaprofiil: Bergevin Lane Vineyards


2001. aasta alguskuudel asutasid Annette Bergevin ja Amber Lane kaasasutajad Bergevin Lane'i viinamarjaistandused koos Gary Bergeviniga (Annette isa). Annette ja Amberi eesmärk oli Californias "rotivõit maha jätta" ja jõuda tagasi selle juurde, mida nad igaüks elult tahtsid. Annette soovis olla oma pere ja kauaaegsete sõprade lähedal ning Amber soovis vastu võtta uusi väljakutseid ning jätkata oma isiklikku kasvu- ja haridusteed.

Veinikelder - 20 000 ruutjalga kaasaegne tööstushoone Walla Walla kesklinnas, Washingtonis - avas ametlikult uksed 2003. aasta mais. Kuigi viinamarjaistanduste toodang on 11 000 korpust, suudab see toota üle 22 000. Veinivalmistaja Steffan Jorgensen on pärit Taanist, kuid toob veinivalmistamise kogemuse Prantsusmaalt, Tšiilist ja Sonoma, Californias. Kõik igapäevased veinitootmistööd ja tootmine on tema järelevalve all. See sõpruskond on kokku ühendanud oma anded, et valmistada väga kvaliteetseid veine.

Hiljuti tegi Amber Lane Las Vegases peatuse, et näidata oma veine restoranis The Morezz French Steakhouse The Palazzo Resort and Casino. Kui veinirežissöör Alexandre Brard Morelsiga liitus, hakkas ta kohe välja töötama uusi viise, kuidas tutvustada külalistele butiikveine kogu maailmast. "Bergevin Lane pakub hämmastavaid kõrge skooriga veine," ütles Brard. "Meil on hea meel, et nad tulid Morelsi, et tutvustada oma külalistele oma silti."

Esimene vein, millest proovi võeti, oli nende oma 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia orus. Amber selgitas, et 2008. aasta oli veenev ja keeruline aasta - veenev tasakaalu tõttu, mida veinid juba väga varajases staadiumis näitasid, ja keeruline mõnevõrra jahedama hooaja tõttu. Jahedam temperatuur tegi väga tahtlikke ja läbimõeldud korjamisotsuseid ning see nõudis, et nad ootaksid viljade valmimist, enne kui pakane võimust võtab. Kõik viljad küpsevad tavapärasest hiljem, kuid pikem hangumisaeg võimaldas viinamarjadel saada keerukamaid maitseid.

See armas Cabernet on segu 75% Cabernet Sauvignonist, 16% Merlotist, 6% Petit Verdost ja 3% Malbecist. 2008. aastakäik laagerdus 20 kuud 87,5% prantsuse ja 12,5% Ameerika tammest ning selle toodang on ainult 769 juhtumit. Klaasis paistavad tumepunased kuni lillad värvid keskmise kehaga veini. Klassikalised noodid, suits ja mustad puuviljad viivad ninasse mineraalide, murakate ja kenasti tasakaalustatud tanniinide, mis annavad pika ja elegantse viimistluse. See väärib oma 92-punktilist Wine Advocate skoori.

Jah, jätke see hommik vahele vaid üheks nädalaks "iced latte grande 2/3 poolkohviku vabakaubandusega, 2 1/2 pumpa suhkruvaba kaneelipulbrit, 2 1/2 pumpa suhkruvaba vanilje, 1 pump suhkruvaba piparkooki, pool 2% piima, pool rasvata , prits soja, 2 toorsuhkrupaketti, 3 Splenda pakki ja 3 meepaketti (esmalt kuumal espressol loksutamata), jää ja piitsaga, šokolaadipritsmetega, kerge muskaatpähkliga ja ärge unustage keerd ja kaks oliivi. "

Mõelge vaid - kogu rahaga, mida kulutate kohevaks, maitsestamiseks, piitsaks ja jahvatamiseks, aitate saata veiniblogija Walla Wallale! Nüüd võin kihla vedada, et mõtlete: "Miks ma tahaksin saata veiniblogija Walla Wallale?" Sellepärast - et nad saaksid oma paljude lugejatega jagada kõike kasvava veinitööstuse ja Washingtoni osariigi paljude erinevate veininimetuste kohta, samuti Walla Walla ’s oma vapustavaid veine, toitu, põllumajandust ja ajaloolist kesklinna. Th-Th-That ’s miks!

Veiniblogijate konverentsi stipendiumifond loodi selleks, et sponsoreerida valitud saajaid, osaledes Washingtonis Walla Walla linnas kolmandal iga-aastasel Põhja-Ameerika veiniblogijate konverentsil, mis toimus 25. – 27. Juunil 2010 Marcus Whitmani hotellis.

Rahalised vahendid Veiniblogijate konverentsi stipendiumifond on saadud veinitehaste, avalike suhete ja turundusagentuuride, veinitööstuse liikmete ja üksikute veinisõprade annetustest. Komitee kaudu palutakse taotlejatel kirjeldada oma ajaveebi, oma rahalisi vajadusi seoses veiniblogijate konverentsiga ja miks nad väärivad sponsorlust. Raha eraldatakse komisjonide valimisprotsessi alusel ja raha koondatakse. Konkreetsele isikule ei anta ühtegi annetust, mis annab rohkem veiniblogijaid konverentsile. Oluline on teada, et komisjoni liikmed, kes määravad stipendiumi saajad, on konverentsil osalemise eest tasunud kõik oma isiklikud tasud.

Mis on põhjus, miks veiniblogija Walla Wallale uuesti saata? Esiteks kirjutab enamik sõltumatuid veiniblogijaid tasuta - viinamarja armastuse pärast. Vahepeal areneb veinitööstuse traditsiooniline meedia ning traditsiooniline trükk asendatakse sotsiaalmeedia ja ajaveebidega. Ja kui te seda ei usu, küsige traditsiooniliselt trükimeedialt, miks nad järsku Facebooki, Twitterisse ja ajaveebibändi hüppasid. Ja siin arvasite, et Facebook jt ja ajaveebi pidamine on mõeldud ainult nutikatele, armastusest näljastele ja vihastatud teismelistele.

Kolmas aasta Põhja -Ameerika veiniblogijate konverents pakub veiniblogijatele, veinitootjatele ning veini- ja meediaga seotud tööstusharudele erakordset võimalust selle põneva tööstuse kohta mullast pudelini rohkem teada saada ja ennekõike üksteise vajadusi paremini mõista. Veinisõbrad, veinitootjad ja ettevõtted, kes annetavad stipendiumifondi, tõstetakse esile Veiniblogijate stipendiumifond veebisaidil ja tehakse kõik endast olenev, et julgustada võitnud stipendiaate ka teie kohta blogi pidama.

Ja kui see kõik on öeldud ja tehtud, siis kes saab sellest kõige rohkem kasu? Sellest saavad kasu veinitarbijad, kes otsivad veebist ajakohast teavet ostetavate veinide kohta ja üldist teavet kogu maailmas kasvava veinitööstuse kohta.

Suur tänu Thea Dwelle'ile veiniblogijate stipendiumifondist ja tema komisjonile. Ütle neile, et ma saatsin sind.

Täieliku Washingtoni veinielamuse pakkumiseks lõi WineCHATr.com kampaania WBC-or-BUST: Road to Walla Walla, mis pakub 12 õnnelikule veiniblogijale Seattle'i ja Walla Walla vahelist tasulist reisi.

Washington on peamine veinipiirkond ja teekond tundus lihtsalt lõbus viis külastada blogijaid sinna, kuhu nad minema pidid, jagades laiemat Washingtoni kogemust, sealhulgas veini, toitu ja maastikku, ütleb Marcus. Pape, asutaja WineCHATr.com.

Alustades Seattle'ist ja reisides mitmete oluliste veinipiirkondade kaudu, saavad blogijad veinile, einestamisele ja koolitusele kolm päeva ja kaks ööd, kui nad konverentsile jõuavad. Sõidule tulevad videomeeskond, mõned peamised veinimeedia spetsialistid ja mitmed kohaliku tööstuse ikoonid, mis pakuvad kvaliteetset küsimuste ja vastuste jagamist ning piirkondlikku maitse jagamist. Kõik see on neile külastavatele blogijatele tasuta antud, sest nad teevad lihtsalt seda, mida nad kõige paremini oskavad, ja ajaveebi pidamist.

“WBC-või-BUST-kampaania on kohutav aabits järgmise aasta konverentsi jaoks, "ütles Ryan Pennington, Washingtoni veinikomisjoni kommunikatsioonijuht. “ Võitnud blogijad kogevad meie tööstusharu tõelist laiust ja mitmekesisust ning jõuavad Walla Wallale, saades tõeliselt ainulaadse arusaama Washingtoni veinist. ”

Saada veiniblogija Walla Wallale!

Jah, jätke see hommik vahele vaid üheks nädalaks "iced latte grande 2/3 poolkohviku vabakaubandusega, 2 1/2 pumpa suhkruvaba kaneelipulbrit, 2 1/2 pumpa suhkruvaba vanilje, 1 pump suhkruvaba piparkooki, pool 2% piima, pool rasvata , prits soja, 2 toorsuhkrupaketti, 3 Splenda pakki ja 3 meepaketti (esmalt kuumal espressol loksutamata), jää ja piitsaga, šokolaadipritsmetega, kerge muskaatpähkliga ja ärge unustage keerd ja kaks oliivi. "

Mõelge vaid - kogu rahaga, mida kulutate kohevaks, maitsestamiseks, piitsaks ja jahvatamiseks, aitate saata veiniblogija Walla Wallale! Nüüd võin kihla vedada, et mõtlete: "Miks ma tahaksin saata veiniblogija Walla Wallale?" Sellepärast - et nad saaksid oma paljude lugejatega jagada kõike kasvava veinitööstuse ja Washingtoni osariigi paljude erinevate veininimetuste kohta, samuti Walla Walla ’s oma vapustavaid veine, toitu, põllumajandust ja ajaloolist kesklinna. Th-Th-That ’s miks!

Veiniblogijate konverentsi stipendiumifond loodi selleks, et sponsoreerida valitud saajaid, osaledes Washingtonis Walla Walla linnas kolmandal iga-aastasel Põhja-Ameerika veiniblogijate konverentsil, mis toimus 25. – 27. Juunil 2010 Marcus Whitmani hotellis.

Rahalised vahendid Veiniblogijate konverentsi stipendiumifond on saadud veinitehaste, avalike suhete ja turundusagentuuride, veinitööstuse liikmete ja üksikute veinisõprade annetustest. Komitee kaudu palutakse taotlejatel kirjeldada oma ajaveebi, oma rahalisi vajadusi seoses veiniblogijate konverentsiga ja miks nad väärivad sponsorlust. Raha eraldatakse komisjonide valimisprotsessi alusel ja raha koondatakse. Konkreetsele isikule ei anta ühtegi annetust, mis annab rohkem veiniblogijaid konverentsile. Oluline on teada, et komisjoni liikmed, kes määravad stipendiumi saajad, on konverentsil osalemise eest tasunud kõik oma isiklikud tasud.

Mis on põhjus, miks veiniblogija Walla Wallale uuesti saata? Esiteks kirjutab enamik sõltumatuid veiniblogijaid tasuta - viinamarja armastuse pärast. Vahepeal areneb veinitööstuse traditsiooniline meedia ning traditsiooniline trükk asendatakse sotsiaalmeedia ja ajaveebidega. Ja kui te seda ei usu, küsige traditsiooniliselt trükimeedialt, miks nad järsku Facebooki, Twitterisse ja ajaveebibändi hüppasid. Ja siin arvasite, et Facebook jt ja ajaveebi pidamine on mõeldud ainult nutikatele, armastusest näljastele ja vihastatud teismelistele.

Kolmas aasta Põhja -Ameerika veiniblogijate konverents pakub veiniblogijatele, veinitootjatele ning veini- ja meediaga seotud tööstusharudele erakordset võimalust selle põneva tööstuse kohta mullast pudelini rohkem teada saada ja ennekõike üksteise vajadusi paremini mõista. Veinisõbrad, veinitootjad ja ettevõtted, kes annetavad stipendiumifondi, tõstetakse esile Veiniblogijate stipendiumifond veebisaidil ja tehakse kõik endast olenev, et julgustada võitnud stipendiaate ka teie kohta blogi pidama.

Ja kui see kõik on öeldud ja tehtud, siis kes saab sellest kõige rohkem kasu? Sellest saavad kasu veinitarbijad, kes otsivad veebist ajakohast teavet ostetavate veinide kohta ja üldist teavet kogu maailmas kasvava veinitööstuse kohta.

Suur tänu Thea Dwelle'ile veiniblogijate stipendiumifondist ja tema komisjonile. Ütle neile, et ma saatsin sind.

Veiniblogijate konverents - või - Bust: tee Walla Walla!

Koos kolmanda iga -aastase Põhja -Ameerika veiniblogijate konverentsiga (WBC) pakub WineCHATr.com 12 kodanikule veinikirjanikule võimalust sõita läbi Washingtoni veiniriigi. WineCHATr.com on kasvava veinitööstuse veebikogukond, kus mõlemad populaarsed veiniblogijad ja ettevõtted tulevad kokku, et veini puudutavat teavet ühendada ja jagada.

Kaheksa kuu pärast kogunevad sajad veiniblogijad Walla Wallale, et WBC saaks lonksutada, proovida ja vaadata, mida Washingtoni veinitööstus pakub ning#8212 jagades samal ajal veebis oma kogemusi. The three-day event—taking place June 25-27, 2010—will attract over 250 wine bloggers as well as industry professionals from all over the country.

For many of the WBC attendees, this will be their first opportunity to visit Walla Walla, or even Washington State. As a way to provide a complete Washington wine experience, WineCHATr.com created the WBC-or-BUST: Road to Walla Walla campaign, which provides 12 lucky wine bloggers all-expenses paid travel between Seattle and Walla Walla.

“Washington is a premier wine region and a road trip just sounded like a fun way to get visiting bloggers where they needed to go, while sharing a broader Washington experience including it’s wine, food, and landscape,” says Marcus Pape, founder WineCHATr.com.

Starting in Seattle and traveling by way of several key wine regions, bloggers will be wined, dined, and educated for three days and two nights as they make their way to the conference. Along for the ride will be a video crew, a few key wine media professionals, and several local industry icons providing some quality Q&A and regional flavor sharing. All provided to these visiting bloggers at no cost for simply doing what they do best – blogging.

“The WBC-or-BUST campaign is a terrific primer for next year’s conference,” said Ryan Pennington, Senior Communications Manager Washington Wine Commission. “Winning bloggers will experience the true breadth and diversity of our industry first hand, arriving in Walla Walla with a truly unique understanding of what Washington wine is all about.”

For more information on the WBC-or-Bust: Road to Walla Walla campaign and how to qualify or get involved, contact WBC-or-BUST! If I didn't already live here or was an WBC Event Sponsor, I would sign up to catch a ride. This is going to be a very cool experience!


Send a Wine Blogger to Walla Walla!

Yup, for only one week skip that morning "iced latte grande with 2/3 half-caf free trade, 2 1/2 pumps of sugar-free cinnamon dolce, 2 1/2 pumps of sugar-free vanilla, 1 pump sugar-free gingerbread, half 2% milk, half nonfat, a splash of soy, 2 raw sugar packets, 3 Splenda packets and 3 honey packets (shaken not stirred in the hot espresso first) light with ice and whip, heavy on the chocolate sprinkles, light nutmeg sprinkles, and don't forget the twist and two olives."

Just think - with all the money you’re spending on fluff, flavoring, whip and grounds, you could help send a wine blogger to Walla Walla! Now, I bet you're thinking, "Why would I want to send a wine blogger to Walla Walla?" Here's why - so they can share with their many readers all about the growing wine industry and the many distinct wine appellations in Washington State, as well as Walla Walla’s own fabulous wines, food, agriculture, and historical downtown. Th-Th-That’s why!

The Wine Bloggers Conference Scholarship Fund was designed to sponsor selected recipients in attending the Third Annual North American Wine Bloggers Conference in Walla Walla, Washington held at the Marcus Whitman Hotel, June 25-27, 2010.

Funds for the Wine Bloggers Conference Scholarship Fund are generated by donations from wineries, PR and marketing agencies, wine industry members, and individual wine lovers. Through a committee, applicants are asked to describe their blog, their financial needs pertaining to the Wine Bloggers Conference, and why they are deserving of a sponsorship. Funds are awarded based on the committee selection process, and monies are pooled. No one donation will be given to a specific individual, which provides more wine bloggers to attend the conference. It is important to know that the committee members, who will determine the scholarship recipients, have paid all their own individual fees to attend the conference.

Now, what’s that reason again to send a wine blogger to Walla Walla? First of all, the majority of independent wine bloggers write for free - for the love of the grape. In the mean time, the wine industry's traditional media is evolving and traditional print is being replaced with social media and blogging. And if you don’t believe it, ask the traditional print media why they have suddenly hopped on the Facebook, Twitter, and the blogging bandwagon. And here you thought Facebook et al and blogging was just for techy, love starved, angst ridden teen-agers.

The Third Annual North American Wine Bloggers Conference offers an extraordinary opportunity for wine bloggers, wineries and wine and media related industries to learn more about this exciting industry, from soil to bottle, and most of all, gain further understanding of each other's needs. Wine lovers, wineries and companies that donate to the scholarship fund will be spotlighted on the Wine Bloggers Scholarship Fund website, and every effort will be made to encourage the winning scholarship recipients to blog about you as well.

And when this is all said and done, who will benefit most of all? It is the wine consumer who will benefit as they seek up-to-date information online about what wines to purchase and overall information about the growing world wide wine industry.

Many thanks to Thea Dwelle of the Wine Bloggers Scholarship Fund and her committee. Tell them I sent you.

And when this is all said and done, who will benefit most of all? It is the wine consumer who will benefit as they seek up-to-date information online about what wines to purchase and overall information about the growing world wide wine industry.

Many thanks to Thea Dwelle of the Wine Bloggers Scholarship Fund and her committee. Tell them I sent you.

Wine Bloggers Conference - or- Bust: Road to Walla Walla!

In conjunction with the third annual North American Wine Bloggers Conference (WBC), WineCHATr.com will provide 12 citizen wine writers the opportunity to catch a ride across Washington wine country. WineCHATr.com is an online community for the growing wine industry, where both popular wine bloggers and businesses come together to connect and share information on wine.

In eight months, hundreds of wine bloggers will converge on Walla Walla for the WBC to sip, sample and see what the Washington wine industry has to offer—while sharing their experiences online. The three-day event—taking place June 25-27, 2010—will attract over 250 wine bloggers as well as industry professionals from all over the country.

For many of the WBC attendees, this will be their first opportunity to visit Walla Walla, or even Washington State. As a way to provide a complete Washington wine experience, WineCHATr.com created the WBC-or-BUST: Road to Walla Walla campaign, which provides 12 lucky wine bloggers all-expenses paid travel between Seattle and Walla Walla.

“Washington is a premier wine region and a road trip just sounded like a fun way to get visiting bloggers where they needed to go, while sharing a broader Washington experience including it’s wine, food, and landscape,” says Marcus Pape, founder WineCHATr.com.

Starting in Seattle and traveling by way of several key wine regions, bloggers will be wined, dined, and educated for three days and two nights as they make their way to the conference. Along for the ride will be a video crew, a few key wine media professionals, and several local industry icons providing some quality Q&A and regional flavor sharing. All provided to these visiting bloggers at no cost for simply doing what they do best – blogging.

“The WBC-or-BUST campaign is a terrific primer for next year’s conference,” said Ryan Pennington, Senior Communications Manager Washington Wine Commission. “Winning bloggers will experience the true breadth and diversity of our industry first hand, arriving in Walla Walla with a truly unique understanding of what Washington wine is all about.”

For more information on the WBC-or-Bust: Road to Walla Walla campaign and how to qualify or get involved, contact WBC-or-BUST! If I didn't already live here or was an WBC Event Sponsor, I would sign up to catch a ride. This is going to be a very cool experience!
