Positively Cretan 

The coasts of Crete are famous for their beauty, but there is also great pleasure in spending time in the enticing inland adorned with stunning landscapes and green vineyards. We are heading to restaurant Bakaliko in the ancient wine village of Archanes for some fine food and wines. 

Flavorous

Flavour corresponds with certain perceptions. Flavour is linked to a distinctive taste, in wine made possible through existence of minerals. Comes in sapidity. When Italian tasters refer to ‘Sapidità’ or Sapidity they talk about savoury notes of salinity as a source of freshness.

Portfolio

Photos create visual journals of the wine world and its people. They are an abstraction from real life, yet the images look real. They recall and document foregone situations. That’s why they are a unique source of reflection & remembrance. View my growing collection of photographs from wine cellars to portraits to vinescapes.

I have a soft spot for sweet wines and Weingut Gebrüder Nittnaus in Gols on Lake Neusiedl ever since we visited their vineyards on a beautiful sunny October afternoon. You could not have asked for more. The already lowering sun was shining through the already yellowing leaves, with here and there a touch of red. It was almost magical. Weingut Nittnaus was first mentioned as owners of a vineyard in 1683, they have been cultivating wine for over 300 years. At #wineparis2024 I tasted their Excuisit Beerenauslese and Chardonnay TBA. #gebrüdernittnaus #nittauswine #wine #winetasting #winetastings #neusiedlerseewein #sweeteine #tbawine

Met Paulo Manzone from Serralunga, Piemonte at the portfolio tasting of #pootagenturen. Paulo is already a long time on my radar and I consider him a notable vintner from the commune of Serralunga D’Alba, one of the 11 production zones of Barolo. I tasted his signature wine Meriame Barolo, Manzone Barolo Reserva and Barolo Serralunga, all of excellent quality, besides the Manzone Barbera D’Alba Superiore Fiorenza. Paulo is not a great fan of dominant oak flavours. He mainly uses French oak foudres of 350 litres, 60% new, and 3000 litre barrels of Slovenian oak.

Every year, the 4th Friday of October honors Champagne!
I am aware that for a lot of people in different parts of the world there is no cause for celebrations. If you, despite, want to upload original content, and share it with friends, family, and the world on YouTube use hashtag #champagneday

Yesterday, during the Nederburg press lunch at restaurant Flora Batava, I was sitting to Samuel Viljoen, Nederburg’s cellarmaster, who explained about the different plots, grape varieties and Nederburg’s different ranges: the lines 56Hundred, The Winemasters, Manor House, Heritage Heros, Ingenuity, Il Centuries and 1791. These wines have been named in honor of someone or something that has made a specific impact on the owners or people working at the winery. Par example Motorcycle Marvel, a Rhône-style red blend honouring legendary winemaker Günter Brӧzel who was cellar-master at Nederburg from 1956 to 1989. Günter drove around Nederburg on a 250cc BSA motorcycle, hence the Motorcycle Marvel, to ensure that his high standards were met.

High in the mountains of Central Crete I found some wild grapes next to 40 beehives. I wonder if the bees use the technique of cross-pollination here. Not necessary for grapes, but maybe nice for the bees.

Also in the small family winery Silva Daskalaki (located in Siva, a tiny village about 17 km from Heraklion) one has to choose different type of bottle shapes for their different ranges of wines. Irini Daskalaki, the viticulturist, and the owner of the winery are here examining different shapes. The Daskalaki family primarily focuses on local indigenous varieties of Liatiko, Mandilari, Vidiano and Plyto, without forgetting international varieties. Their vineyards are located within the wine region of Dafnes. #daskalakiwinery #cretanwines #winesofcrete
