IT’S BEEN A BLAST!!!! TIME TO MOVE!!!!

 

Well it has been a long run here on the ol’ WordPress blog. HAd a lot of fun here at my second East Village Wine Geek home. But it is time to move once again. I have been doing this wine blog thing since 2004 and am still goin! Not only that but since I have started posting I have bought the restaurant/wine bar that I have worked at for so long and opened a neat little wine shop around the corner.

I love blogging and I will not stop.

And NOW:

You will be able to see all my videos going forward on our new

ALPHABET CITY WINE CO. WEBSITE!

Here I will be able to do videos about wine and actually be able to sell them to you instead of just rambling on.

So come on by and check us out. See what videos and geekiness we got going on!

GRUB CLUB PART II: A SPANISH FEAST IN BUSHWICK

I joined Chuck Webster for another of his Grub Clubs. He had asked me to pair wines with a spanish feast. It is always a blast doing an underground supper club with this artist/chef/all around righteous dude and the night went wonderfully! Chuck’s friend had caught a migrating sea bass that morning and donated it to Grub Club. Chuck proceeded to encrust the fish with salt and what you are about to witness is the result!

This was my firat attempt to shoot video on the ipad so the aspect ratio is a bit weird. But I will get it right next time!

Enjoy!

Five Days In Languedoc- Roussillon: Chateau De La Negly Part II

As we worked our way towards the Pyrenees and into Roussillon we made a stop in La Clape. We were fortunate enough to be able to visit one of the most renowned wine makers of the appellation as well as the entire region, Chateau De La Negly.

The story of this chateau is a love affair with land and vine. A man, Jean Paul Rosset who inherited this mediterranean wonderland from his parents and turned it into some of the most celebrated wine in the area.

The information in this video is so plentiful that I had to put it into three parts or else it would be the length of a short film. In this video Cyril Chamontin, Jean Pual Rosset’s passionate winemaker takes us into the winery to give a peek at the winemaking process. The diligence and focus of Cyril’s process is infectious!

Enjoy the tour and get ready for the next video when we meet the man who made it all happen!

Five Days In Languedoc- Roussillon: Chateau De La Negly

As we worked our way towards the Pyrenees and into Roussillon we made a stop in La Clape. We were fortunate enough to be able to visit one of the most renowned wine makers of the appellation as well as the entire region, Chateau De La Negly.

The story of this chateau is a love affair with land and vine. A man, Jean Paul Rosset who inherited this mediterranean wonderland from his parents and turned it into some of the most celebrated wine in the area.

The information in this video is so plentiful that I had to put it into two parts or else it would be the length of a short film. In this video Cyril Chamontin, Jean Pual Rosset’s passionate winemaker takes us on a tour of the many vineyards on their property. I have never seen so many different soil types and terroirs in one place and my wine geek brain was on excitement overload.

Enjoy the tour and get ready for the next video when we taste the wine and meet the man who it all happened.

Five Days In Languedoc- Roussillon: Lunch in Narbonne

We took a break from vineyards for lunch in the ancient town of Narbonne, the agreed upon birthplace of French wine culture. Join me as we take a tour of one of the most emmense food markets I have ever seen.

I can’t really explain how wonderful this lunch was. The images must speak for themselves. This wonder of a place is the definition of local food. and the restuarants and bars that populate it are serving up some of the most delicious dishes.

I took the flip cam in with me so as not to freak out the locals a bigger camera (it was their lunchtime) but got some great footage of the scale of Les Halles de Narbonne.

Oh and this one is only about 6mins or so.

Watch. Share. Love. Enjoy!

Five Days In Languedoc- Roussillon: Chateau Mas Neuf

I’M BACK!

Whoa! What an Easter week I had. Running two businesses while trying to celebrate the wonders of spring holidays took me for a ride!

But I am back in the saddle again and posting my new France video!

Our second visit in Costieres De Nimes was Chateau Mas Neuf to hang out with the incredibly passionate and refreshingly opinionated Luc Beaudet. His approach to wine is simple: let the wine make itself. he practices sustainable agriculture yet is not worried about certification. Here we have yet another winemaker coming from somewhere else and landing in the Languedoc to make the wines of his dreams. Join me as I pick his brain and get a really good look at his terroir.

Enjoy! Share! Love! Drink! Wine To The People!
