Sonoma's Sebastiani and Clos du Bois Wineries Shuttered

Two long-established Sonoma County wineries lost their homes this week as the parent companies of Sebastiani and Clos du Bois laid off workers and shifted production to other facilities. The brands will continue, but the wines will be made elsewhere.

In the case of Sebastiani, this marks an end of an era. The winery, located a mile east of Sonoma Plaza, has produced wine continuously since 1904, surviving even Prohibition and the Great Depression. Foley Family Wines bought the winery from the Sebastiani family in 2008. About 30 winemaking and production employees were let go.

E. & J. Gallo, which acquired Clos du Bois from Constellation in a $1.7 billion deal in January, laid off 36 employees, including the winemaking staff. The Geyserville winery and tasting room, built in the late 1990s, are currently shuttered.

Consolidation of winemaking facilities is not new in the California wine industry. Constellation and Jackson Family Wines have made similar moves over the years. The pandemic also accelerated changes in the marketplace, as consumer demand for cheap wines continues to slide. Clos du Bois in recent years has focused on wines priced $15 and under, while the bulk of Sebastiani's bottlings sell for $20-$40.

When Gallo purchased more than a dozen value-focused brands from Constellation, it was expected it would need to find cost savings to turn the brands around. "Given the changing market dynamics over the past two years, we are transitioning the bulk of our production from the Clos du Bois winery to our other wineries in Sonoma County," Lon Gallagher, senior manager of Gallo public relations, said. "We will maintain some operations at Clos du Bois moving forward, but the current staffing levels are not needed for future production."

Review: Wines of Landmark Vineyards, 2021 Releases

Review: Wines of Landmark Vineyards, 2021 Releases
2018 Landmark Vineyards Hop Kiln Estate Pinot Noir Russian River Valley

Christopher Null May 12, 2021

Three new offerings from our pals at Landmark Vineyards. No introduction needed:

2019 Landmark Vineyards Overlook Chardonnay Sonoma County – A textbook chardonnay, this wine blends bright apple fruit, figs, and baking spice into a slurry, before dumping them into a bucket of vanilla and gentle, buttery oak. Mellow and approachable on the seductive finish, where the spice notes meld with a punch of citrus to really kick things up. A- / $27

2018 Landmark Vineyards Overlook Pinot Noir – This pinot hits the tongue with quite a bit of toughness, with layers of allspice and clove muscling out the fruit that feels like it must be hiding out somewhere, albeit pretty far beneath the surface. Chewy and brambly, the wine never really arrives on the palate, culminating in a somewhat doughy, earthy experience that somehow completely misses out on providing the cherry- and cola-laden delights that Landmark’s pinots typically provide. The finish is particularly green, unripe, and scattered. This vintage just doesn’t have it. B- / $25

A smooth and tasty nutrient-dense yogurt, AYO sets itself apart from the vegan yogurt pack

DELANO, CA, USA, May 12, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Not allyogurtis created equal. Often touted as one of the healthiest food options, the reality is that most yogurts’ ingredients read more like a dessert than healthy food. Not AYO Almondmilk Yogurt. With an organic almond base, AYO Almondmilk Yogurt is lower-sugar and probiotic-rich with live active cultures. It satisfies even the pickiest eater with its light, creamy, smooth texture and delicious fruit and vanilla flavors.

“We set out to make a high-quality yogurt with our family-grown almonds as a base,” says AYO Almondmilk Yogurt Founder and third-generation organic almond farmer Matt Billings, “We’ve succeeded in creating a vegan yogurt that is nutrient-dense, with the health benefits of twenty almonds per cup and rich probiotics.”

Every cup of AYO Almondmilk Yogurt has three vegan live active cultures: lactobacillus delbrueckii subsp., bulgaricus streptococcus thermophilus, and bifidobacterium bb-12. This “good bacteria” includes benefits to the digestive tract and gut health.

Caring For Others Opening South Atlanta Food Bank

Caring For Others Opening South Atlanta Food Bank

Facility expects to distribute 80,000 pounds of food five days a week

Our goal is to eradicate food insecurity, which, in turn, helps end poverty once the stress and cost of food is removed from their plates.”

— Caring For Others Founder and CEO Eslene Richmond-Shockley

ATLANTA, GA, UNITED STATES, May 12, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ --Caring For Others, a 501c3 working to eradicate poverty, is excited to open a South Atlanta Food Bank on Saturday, May 15. There will be a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 9:30 am. Several VIPs are expected to attend the event and will be announced closer to the event. Located in the south side of Atlanta (3501 Browns Mill Road, SE), the 25,000-square-foot facility will allow the organization to double its daily food distribution to approximately 80,000 pounds per day in an effort to remove food insecurity from the area.

Established to serve agency partners who distribute food and groceries to those facing hunger on a daily basis, the South Atlanta Food Bank will be open Monday through Friday from 9 am until noon. Some of the organization’s sponsors and supporters include The Perry Foundation, Life University, Porsche North America, Sister Diamonds, Nabaclis Partners, GCI Graphics, Harold Gerlitsch Feed The Needy Fund, Amazon Fresh and Regions Bank.

“Our goal is to eradicate food insecurity, which, in turn, helps end poverty once the stress and cost of food is removed from their plates,” said Caring For Others Founder and CEO Eslene Richmond-Shockley. “The pandemic exacerbated the need for basic necessities and shook us to our core. Through the goodness of humanity all around us, Caring For Others was able to persevere and expand our operations by opening the South Atlanta Food Bank.“

A health scare forced Richmond-Shockley to reconsider the meaning of her life, so she quit a 15-year corporate job to focus on helping others. In 2001, with $25 and a calling from above, she founded Caring For Others. She began by renting a portion of a warehouse for three months at the cost of $1. Since its humble beginnings, Caring For Others has grown to purchase the building and expand.

Warner's Gin launches £1m marketing campaign

Warner's Gin launches £1m marketing campaign

Craft gin brand Warner's is investing in its biggest marketing campaign yet to support the launch of its new-recipe London Dry Gin.

The campaign's slogan 'Real Tastes Better' comes from brand founders Tom Warner and Tina Warner-Keogh, who are firm believers in using natural ingredients and in promoting transparency in the gin category.

Named Craft Producer of the Year in the 2021 Icons of Gin, Warner's grows many of its botanicals at its Falls Farm distillery and is a champion of local ingredient sourcing. The new recipe for its London Dry Gin - released earlier this month - includes farm-grown ingredients including angelica, lavender and lemon verbena and discarded citrus peels.

To communicate its Real Tastes Better message Warner's is spending more than £1 million on marketing in the on- and off-trade. This will include: an offer for consumers to redeem a free Warner's glass with each purchase of a 700ml bottle of its London Dry or Rhubarb Gin in selected supermarkets; free-standing display units in 200 Waitrose stores; adverts through the press; a Warner's pub roadshow through the summer to support the recovering on-trade; outside activations and at-table interactive tasting sessions in on-trade venues; and live virtual tasting experiences.

Tina Warner-Keogh said: "We pride ourselves on making real handmade gin from real, farm-grown ingredients. We are that passionate that sometimes our language does get a bit colourful, which is how we came up with our Real Tastes Better campaign which includes some, shall we say, down-to-earth messages about why our gin tastes so bloody great.

Kentucky State University to kick off 135th anniversary celebration with giving campaign, new partnership with Ale-8-One

Kentucky State University to kick off 135th anniversary celebration with giving campaign, new partnership with Ale-8-One
image
WINCHESTER, KENTUCKY, UNITED STATES, May 12, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ -- After navigating the effects of a global pandemic for the last year to deliver access to education, Kentucky State University has more reasons than ever to celebrate its 135th anniversary as an institution of higher education.

Part of the 135th anniversary celebration is a new partnership with the iconic Kentucky soda brand, Ale-8-One Bottling Company. Ale-8-One, local producer of Kentucky’s original ginger and citrus soft drink sold in their signature green glass bottles, is also celebrating its 95th anniversary this year. Kentucky State and Ale-8-One will highlight the partnership with a series of collaborations throughout the year.

Through the partnership, a commemorative 135th anniversary Ale-8-One label will be released exclusively to Kentucky State to honor this historic moment. The partnership also includes expanding opportunities and support for Kentucky State University students through internships and scholarships, and an Ale-8-One presence on campus. Finally, Ale-8-One is making its first scholarship donation to the Together Thorobreds campaign and is encouraging others to do so as well.

“This milestone recognition represents a natural partnership between Ale-8-One and Kentucky State. Our shared commitment to agriculture, historic relevance, and of course, our shared colors, brings forth a commonality deserving celebration. We look forward to forming a substantive relationship with the Kentucky State community and strengthening our presence on campus,” said Chris Doyle, marketing director for Ale-8-One.

With a goal of raising more than $3.5 million, Kentucky State will launch its Together Thorobreds 135th Anniversary Giving Campaign. To benefit Kentucky State’s efforts to advance its mission to support the institution’s four pillars of success — academics, access, athletics and agriculture — gifts representing 1886, the University’s founding year, will be requested from constituents through a monthly giving day challenge, highlighting campaign fundraising champions on the 18th day of every month. Gifts ranging from $18 to $1886 are encouraged for this campaign.

The Together Thorobreds campaign also provides constituents with the opportunity to join the Thorobred Annual Giving Society. Members may join the President’s Society with gifts of $5,000 or above, the Onward and Upward Society with gifts ranging from $3,000 to $4,999, the 1886 Society with gifts ranging from $500 to $2,999 or the Green and Gold Society with gifts under $500. Inaugural members will receive an exclusive 135th anniversary pin and other gifts by designated society level.

This Is What Aperitivo Looks Like

“The food of aperitivo hour is the one thing that really transports me to Italy,” says Missy Robbins, chef and owner of Lilia, Misi and MP. “While I love so many things about Italian lifestyle, this ranks at the top of the list.”

As a tangible concept, aperitivo refers to both the occasion and the drink itself, which is often bittersweet and low-ABV, and sometimes even bubbly. But there’s also the intangible element: the laid-back atmosphere, the in-between moment of daytime proper and imminent evening.

“What I feel is special about it is that it’s very democratic,” says Sara Porro, a food and travel writer based in Milan, of the Italian cultural cornerstone that is aperitivo. “People of every age and social group do it. You can take Grandma out for aperitivo, unless she’s already there with her friends.”

“Aperitivo is the daily occasion for Italian people placed before dinner,” says Fabio Raffaelli, the North American brand ambassador for MARTINI & ROSSI®, who grew up in Milan. “And a kind of social occasion for us, too.” For him, the single rule of the occasion is quite simple: You should drink something with herbs and spices that will open your stomach; not a digestivo, but rather its opposite.

(The concept can confuse the uninitiated. Porro recalls an American friend who would propose going for an aperitivo after dinner. “That’s a nightcap, my friend—or what here in Italy we’d call a bicchiere della staffa, or the ‘stirrup cup.’”)

Review: Paul Sutton Bourbon

Review: Paul Sutton Bourbon
Paul Sutton Bourbon

Christopher Null May 12, 2021

Paul Sutton is a new bourbon brand, one which seemingly came out of nowhere, overnight. That might lead you to believe that the Kentucky-based operation is simply sourcing whiskey from elsewhere, but that’s not the case: Paul Sutton is making its own distillate, under the direction of Myra Barginear, a New York oncologist (and a former Miss Mississippi!) with deep roots in Kentucky whiskeydom.

The company got started in 2014 with the idea of reverse engineering the old family recipe, ultimately leading the crew to use a sweet mash of Alabama-grown corn, rye, and barley instead of the usual sour mash technique. What’s the difference? Sour mash is often equated to sourdough, with some of the mash from the last distillation held over as “starter” for the next batch. Sweet mash starts fresh with every batch and is less acidic due to its makeup, which some say makes it harder to work with and more prone to spoilage, so it requires more careful attention during production.

Either way, the operation produces a mere 20 barrels a day (which I presume is why the batch numbers are already so high despite this barely being on the market), and ages the whiskey in new #4 char oak barrels for four-plus years. (The whiskey has no formal age statement other than being labeled a Kentucky Straight Bourbon.)

The Coronation of Craft Beer

Beer-loving Homer Simpson may have thought “we elected the wrong Carter,” although, in actuality, Jimmy was more responsible for today’s culturally rich brew scene than his hard-drinking younger brother Billy and that eponymous beer. In 1978, the 39th president federally legalized homebrewing, allowing hobbyists to hone their skills and eventually, in some cases, turn professional. This law would open the floodgates for the first wave of craft brewers like Ken Grossman, the owner of a homebrew supply shop in Chico, California, who opened Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. in 1980.

When Carter signed HR 1337, there were fewer than 100 breweries in America, all making industrial lagers under names you probably still know, like Schlitz, Old Style and Coors. This first wave of microbreweries (in the parlance of the day) countered those with European styles that burst with flavors unfamiliar to drinkers in the States. Jack McAuliffe’s New Albion Brewing, for example, became popular for its British-inspired ales, including a porter that was darker and richer than anything else on the market. (McAuliffe had railed against the American beer of the day as a “national disgrace.”)

But this new breed of microbrewery would also make distinctly American beer, capitalizing on the new breed of hops grown domestically in the rich soils of the Pacific Northwest. Notable among the hop varieties, Cascade lent a dank, citrusy aroma to pale ales like Sierra Nevada and Anchor Liberty Ale. These beers went on to inspire a generation of brewers that delivered to us the ubiquitous IPA factories of today, and crystallized a flavor profile that has become the calling card of American craft beer.

By 1983, brewpubs—breweries offering on-premise drinking—were legally allowed in Washington and California. Before long, Bert Grant’s Yakima Brewing & Malting Co. in Washington, and Mendocino Brewing and Buffalo Bill’s in California, were among the first to pop up in this model. Other states soon followed suit. With homebrewing and brewpubs both legal, the laws were finally in place to allow intrepid entrepreneurs to put their mark on this fledgling American beer scene. Here are the trends that set the foundation for the modern craft beer boom, from 1978 until the turn of the century.

A Brewpub in Every Mall

In late 1984, the East Coast welcomed its first brewpub when 37-year-old Brit Richard Wrigley—who had mocked American beers as tasting like “soft drinks”—opened Manhattan Brewing Company. Every night, a line of trendy yuppies snaked around its SoHo block trying to get in. A runaway success, the brewpub model began to look like a license to print money. By 1985, New Amsterdam Brewing opened a 110,000-square-foot tap room further uptown, in the neighborhood now known as NoMad; within a year, it was selling more beer in the United States than Sierra Nevada. That same year, Mike and Brian McMenamin opened the Hillsdale Brewery & Public House in Portland, Oregon. (They eventually expanded to 60 locations throughout Oregon and Washington.) In 1988, Gordon Biersch opened in the Palo Alto area, and by 1995 it had grown to chain status valued at $20 million, with dozens of locations. There was Rock Bottom Restaurant & Brewery and BJ’s Brewhouse, both of which seemed to exist in every mid-tier American city and several airports by the mid-1990s, as prevalent as a Chili’s or Ruby Tuesday. These places didn’t make “good” beer exactly, certainly not by today’s standards, but these brewpubs gave many Americans their first encounters with all sorts of never-before-tasted styles: amber ales, oatmeal stouts, and those de rigeur hefeweizens, almost always served with a lemon wedge perched on the fluted glass.

Tomatin unveils new French Collection

Tomatin unveils new French Collection

Tomatin Distillery is hoping to transport whisky drinkers across the English Channel with a new virtual experience.

Ahead of World Whisky Day (15 May), the Scotch distillery has announced the launch of its French Collection, a four-part release showing the influence of French wine and spirit casks on its liquid during maturation.

The whisky, distilled in 2008, began its maturation in traditional oak casks before being moved into Monbazillac, Sauternes, Rivesaltes and Cognac casks for the final stage of ageing.

The collection will be accompanied by a content series which Tomatin says will stimulate all the senses - but which can be enjoyed from the comfort of home. With content designed to explore the flavour profiles of each whisky in the French Collection, including visuals and sound effects, the series will roll out as each expression is released.

The Monbazillac, Sauternes and Rivesaltes editions (1-3) were released on 26 April and retail around £65 per bottle through the Tomatin website and selected specialist retailers. The Cognac edition (4) will launch later in 2021.

A project to preserve at-risk Atlantic salmon in the River Spey is underway as The Atlantic Salmon Trust embarks on the Moray Firth Tracking project, supported by a charitable partnership with The Macallan.

The River Spey is home to the largest Atlantic salmon population in Scotland, a key-stone species which is in sharp decline due to habitat destruction and overfishing. Winding through the North East of Scotland, nearly two miles of the river flow through The Macallan Estate, the birthplace of every bottle of The Macallan’s exceptional single-malt whisky since 1824.
