“Wines in different regions of the World”

Wine is the fermented juice of grapes. There are three major types of wine : 1. Table wine (17-22%) 2. Sparkling wine (8-12% + CO2 ) and 3. Fortified wine (17-22%)
France is the leading country from the top 10 producers of wine in the world. Subsequently there are: Italy, USA, Spain, Argentina, Germany, South Africa, Australia, Chile and Portugal. Grapes are agricultural products that require specific growing conditions. There are limitations on where vines can be grown. Some of these limitations are: the growing season, the number of days of sunlight, angle of the sun, average temperature, and rainfall. Soil is of primary concern, and adequate drainage is a requisite. The right amount of sun ripens the grapes properly to give them the sugar/acid balance that makes the difference between fair, good, and great wine.
Each major wine-producing country has government-sponsored control agencies and laws that regulate all aspects of wine production and set certain minimum standards that must be observed. Some examples: * France : Appellation d’Origine Controlee (AOC) * Italy : Denominazione di Origine Controllata (DOC) * USA : Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau * Germany : Ministry of Agriculture * Spain : Denominacion de Origen (DO)

There are three major grapes from which white wine is produced: 1. Riesling 2. Sauvignon Blanc 3. Chardonnay
Regions where they grow best are: 1. Riesling : Germany, Alsace (France), New York State, Washington State 2. Sauvignon Blanc : Bordeaux-Loire Valley (France), New Zealand, California (Fume Blanc) 3. Chardonnay : Burgundy-Champagne (France), California, Australia
The common aromas of these grapes are: 1. Riesling : Fruity, Lychee nut, Sweet 2. Sauvignon Blanc : Grapefruit, Grass,…...

...The first one is the business and productive model implemented by the NW, which corresponds to a mass production of varietal wines, with quality consistency, obtained by large industrial enterprises with significant economies of scale. By contrast and as previously mentioned, the productive and business model implemented by the OW was characterized by a business network of cooperatives and enterprises (mostly familiar and of small and medium size). The second one is the commercial and marketing strategy implemented by the NW, leading to better consumer information of the product characteristics; i.e. wines are sold under brands with strong investments in marketing and advertising campaigns. By contrast, the commercial tradition of the OW involved an intricate system of denominations of origin, varietal and geographic areas that were difficult to understand by a novice consumer. The last potential reason is the emergence of strong governmental support in the NW during the '90s and the beginning of this century. This support, known in the specialized literature as the "National Brand Plans", had the primary aim of improving the wine export performance in the long Term. Australia was the pioneer in the development of such national scope plans in June1996, launching its celebrated plan called "Strategy 2025". Its aim was to reach an export turnover of 4.5 billion Australian dollars by the year 2025. The resounding success of the plan meant that in 2005, 20......

...November 20, 2013 Wine The creation of wine dates back prior to written history, earliest known production tools found in the ancient Middle East about 6000BC. Wine has influenced royalty, religion and wars throughout the ancient world, playing an important role in each culture. Today, wine has managed to maintain its luster in society, being produced and consumed in large amounts worldwide. The production of wine has proved lucrative business for many years, and for many reasons. From grape farming to creating different varieties to pricing the bottles, there is a good amount involved in the wine production process. For the world of “winos” (people addicted to wine), there could never be enough of this sweet nectar. While the wine making process was developed about 6000BC, many improvements and innovations have taken place over the past 8000 years. Today, the production of wine is worldwide, manufacturing nearly 6.5 billion gallons per year. According to the International Wine Guild, the United States consumes 762 million gallons per year, ranking third overall in wine consumption across the world. The top three innovations in wine production include Biodynamic Viticulture, micro-oxygentation, and fuel creation from the waste. Biodynamic Viticulture involves the process of using the farm and surrounding land’s eco-system to best determine ways to get the most yields along with controlling pests. Micro-oxygentation is used to improve the flavor of a wine by......

Dalat Wine

...Scientific Article DALAT WINE: CHALLENGES IN ESTABLISHING THE NATIONAL WINE BRAND POSITION IS STILL YEARS AHEAD -*Ngo Binh, MA. in Marketing Bui Thi Lan Huong, PhD. I. COMPANY HISTORY 1.1 Wine manufacturing traditional in Dalat (Vietnam) Dalat wine has been popular in Dalat, an attractive city located 1500 m above sea level on Langbian high lands. For long time ago, Dalat wine has been produced traditionally by local producers from blackberries (dau tam). Traditional wine makers in Dalat grow themselves dau tam at Bong Lai area. It is reportedly that the first wine producer was Lafaro, a local company founded by Nguyen Huu Duc in 1974. This company imported a new variety of dau tam to produce its wine. Unfortunately, the company stopped to operate in 1975. Nguyen Chi Man, a 80-year-old man, who did distribute this wine at that time, asked the company's owner this variety of mulberry' seeds to grow, then to make wine for his own consumption and later on for his small business in Dalat. Since then, other traditional wine makers follow him to open wine factories and mulberry plantations, especially in Bong Lai. Because of their small scale, they did not build up particular brand name for their wine. Dalat wine has been considered effectively as a “geographical indication”. Dalat wine has been consumed mostly by Dalat residents. The mind climate of Dalat is the favorable place for consuming red wine, especially in traditional holidays. According to Nguyen Trong Anh Dong,......

...they are reborn, with their new lives dependent upon deeds in the previous life, until we reach a state of perfection of mind (Numrich, 2001). This state of perfection is when they have achieved what is known as nirvana. Christians and Muslims belief living right by God will allow them to exist for eternity in Heaven. Even when looking at these faiths from a perspective of health, illness, and healing we see that they provide people with guidance and purpose in life. With Native American spirituality we again find a similar concept: positive actions lead to balance and health, whereas negative actions lead to imbalance and suffering. The Native American healing is intended to heal the person by restoring balance and harmony with the spirit of nature, which is sometimes referred to as God or the Great Mystery. Most of the Native American tribes believed in a higher power, whether this higher power is referred to as God, the Creator or the Great Mystery. They also see everything around us as sacred, often using symbolism with animals and nature. Again, despite the differences in each of these belief systems, we find within each a guidance to be a good person. Throughout each we find concepts that being a good person creates positive energy, or good health. Being a bad person and doing bad things creates negative energy which is responsible for illness. Whether it is by the hand of a divine entity or through the power of our own minds, the concepts exist in some shape......

... Wine In the story Wine the author Hayashi Mariko subtly sketches a modern Japanese career woman as a developing round character who is constantly evaluating her relationships with men. While in Quebec for a business trip Ms. Sone is being taken on a tour along with others through different areas within Quebec. They are they taken to a very exclusive and important wine cellar of Canada. “Oh, wine. Just hearing the word makes me tense.” As the reader can tell wine must not be a very strong subject to Ms. Sone. “But wine is my weak area,” she says. Knowing very little of the subject she offers to buy a bottle to take back as a souvenir of the trip. Picking one of extremely lavish quality just to splurge on the occasion Ms. Sone picks one thinking it is costing her forty-five dollars in reality ending up to have a final cost of one hundred forty-five dollars. In complete shock of the price she decides it is of too much importance to drink in a regular occasion with regular people and decides to save it for something or someone special to share it with. The wine now became of some importance to Ms. Sone due to the price tag which came with it. Like those who she mocked she guarded the bottle as it were a real life baby While thinking of those to share it with she immediately crosses out her boyfriend Kunihiko because she thought he had no appreciation for it. After saying “ Lets drink that expensive wine together to celebrate your......
