Producentprofil: Bergevin Lane Vineyards


I begyndelsen af ​​2001 var Annette Bergevin og Amber Lane medstifter Bergevin Lane Vineyards med Gary Bergevin (Annettes far). Annette og Ambers mål var at "efterlade rotteracet" i Californien og komme tilbage til, hvad de hver især ville have fra livet. Annette ønskede at være tæt på sin familie og mangeårige venner, og Amber ville tage nye udfordringer og fortsætte sin personlige vej til vækst og uddannelse.

Vingården - en moderne industribygning på 20.000 kvadratmeter i centrum af Walla Walla, Wash. - åbnede officielt sine døre i maj 2003. Selvom vinmarkernes produktion er på 11.000 kasser, har den kapacitet til at producere over 22.000. Vinmager Steffan Jorgensen er oprindeligt fra Danmark, men har erfaring med vinfremstilling fra Frankrig, Chile og Sonoma, Californien. Hele den daglige vinfremstilling og produktion er under hans tilsyn. Sammen har denne vennegruppe kombineret deres respektive talenter til at producere nogle vine af meget høj kvalitet.

For nylig stoppede Amber Lane i Las Vegas for at vise sine vine frem på Morels French Steakhouse i The Palazzo Resort and Casino. Da vinedirektør Alexandre Brard sluttede sig til Morels, begyndte han straks at udvikle nye måder at introducere gæster til boutique -vine fra hele verden. "Bergevin Lane byder på nogle fantastiske vine med høj score," sagde Brard. "Vi er glade for at få dem til at komme til Morels for at præsentere deres etiket for vores gæster."

Den første vin, der blev udtaget, var deres 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley. Amber forklarede, at 2008 var et overbevisende og kompliceret år - overbevisende på grund af balancen, vinene allerede viste sig på dette meget tidlige stadium, og kompliceret på grund af den noget køligere sæson. Den køligere temperatur gav meget bevidste og tankevækkende plukbeslutninger, og det krævede, at de ventede på, at frugten modnes, før frosten tog over. Al frugt modnet senere end normalt, men den længere hængetid tillod udvikling af mere komplekse smag i druerne.

Denne dejlige Cabernet er en blanding af 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdo og 3% Malbec for at afslutte den. Årgangen 2008 blev lagret i 20 måneder i 87,5% fransk og 12,5% amerikansk eg og har kun en produktion på 769 kasser. I glasset viser dyb rød til lilla farver den medium fyldige vin. På næsen fører klassiske noter af cassis, røg og sort frugt ind i en ganen af ​​mineral, brombær og pænt afbalancerede tanniner til en lang, elegant finish. Det fortjener sin 92-point Wine Advocate-score.


Send en vinblogger til Walla Walla!

Ja, spring den morgen over kun en uge "iced latte grande med 2/3 halvcafé fri handel, 2 1/2 pumper sukkerfri kaneldolce, 2 1/2 pumper sukkerfri vanilje, 1 pumpe sukkerfri honningkager, halv 2% mælk, halvt fedtfri , et stænk soja, 2 råsukkerpakker, 3 Splendapakker og 3 honningpakker (rystet ikke rørt i den varme espresso først) let med is og pisk, tungt på chokoladesprinklerne, lette muskatnødssprinkler, og glem ikke twist og to oliven. "

Tænk bare - med alle de penge, du bruger på fnug, smagsstoffer, pisk og grunde, kan du hjælpe med at sende en vinblogger til Walla Walla! Nu vedder jeg på, at du tænker: "Hvorfor vil jeg gerne sende en vinblogger til Walla Walla?" Her er hvorfor - så de kan dele med deres mange læsere alt om den voksende vinindustri og de mange forskellige vinappellationer i Washington State, samt Walla Wallas egne fabelagtige vine, mad, landbrug og historiske centrum. Th-Th-That ’s hvorfor!

Wine Bloggers Conference Scholarship Fund var designet til at sponsorere udvalgte modtagere ved at deltage i den tredje årlige nordamerikanske vinbloggerkonference i Walla Walla, Washington, der blev afholdt på Marcus Whitman Hotel, 25.-27. Juni 2010.

Midler til Wine Bloggers Conference Scholarship Fund genereres af donationer fra vingårde, PR- og marketingbureauer, vinindustriens medlemmer og individuelle vinelskere. Gennem et udvalg bliver ansøgere bedt om at beskrive deres blog, deres økonomiske behov i forbindelse med Wine Bloggers Conference, og hvorfor de fortjener et sponsorat. Midler tildeles baseret på udvalgets udvælgelsesproces, og der samles penge. Ingen donation vil blive givet til en bestemt person, hvilket giver flere vinbloggere mulighed for at deltage i konferencen. Det er vigtigt at vide, at udvalgets medlemmer, der bestemmer stipendiaterne, har betalt alle deres egne individuelle gebyrer for at deltage i konferencen.

Hvad er det nu for en grund til igen at sende en vinblogger til Walla Walla? Først og fremmest skriver størstedelen af ​​uafhængige vinbloggere gratis - af kærlighed til druen. I mellemtiden udvikler vinindustriens traditionelle medier sig, og traditionelt print erstattes med sociale medier og blogging. Og hvis du ikke tror det, så spørg de traditionelle trykte medier, hvorfor de pludselig er hoppet på Facebook, Twitter og blogging -vognen. Og her troede du, at Facebook et al, og blogging kun var for teknikere, kærlighedssultede, angstplagede teenagere.

Den tredje årlige Nordamerikansk vinbloggerkonference tilbyder en ekstraordinær mulighed for vinbloggere, vingårde og vin- og mediarelaterede industrier for at lære mere om denne spændende industri, fra jord til flaske, og mest af alt at få yderligere forståelse for hinandens behov. Vinelskere, vingårde og virksomheder, der donerer til stipendiefonden, vil blive fokuseret på Wine Bloggers Scholarship Fund websted, og der vil blive gjort alt for at tilskynde de vindende stipendiater til også at blogge om dig.

Og når dette er sagt og gjort, hvem vil have størst fordel af det? Det er vinforbrugeren, der vil drage fordel af det, når de søger opdateret information online om, hvilke vine der skal købes, og samlet information om den voksende vinindustri i verden.

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.
