The U.S. has experienced double-digit growth inretail sales of premium imported rosé wines for every year of the past decade, and exports of Provençal rosé to the US jumped 40% in 2013. No longer a bi-product of winemakers looking to make more concentrated red wines, Provençal rosés are created today with both intention and spirit—and Brad and Angelina aren’t the only ones in on the action.Mirabeau Wine began in the summer of 2009 when Stephen quit his job to pursue his dream of crafting beautiful wines. He moved his family from London to a small town called Cotignac in the heart of Provence, France and set about to create rosésthat would be enjoyed around the world. Just five years later, Mirabeau is sold in ten countries and has won international acclaim from some of the toughest critics.Not a winemaker himself, Stephen’s first order of business was to put together a world-class team. Bucking the tradition in the region (as only an expat Brit could), Stephen tapped a Master of Wine who was trained in the Barossa Valley in Australia and began scouring the region for the very bestgrapes. His game plan was simple: work with only the very best vineyards in the region, combine old world knowledge with new world winemaking, and never compromise on quality.The Pure Mirabeau Rosé ($21.99) is the newest wine from Mirabeau. This blend of classic Grenache, Syrah, and Vermentino uses grapes from the highest altitudes in the Côtes de Provence, taking advantage of optimal, cool growing temperatures. The result is plenty of fruity notes including grapefruit and white peach mingled withfloral hints of rose and orange blossom—ending with a long, green herby finish. Paler in hue than Classic, Pure is a refreshing before-meal aperitif—perhaps before lunch by the pool—and also pairs well with everything from salads in vinaigrettes to poached fish and sharp cheeses. Pure was a recentfavorite of Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate with a score of 90 points.Regarded as the more gastronomic of Stephen’s wines, the Mirabeau “Classic” Rosé 2013 ($15.99) is also an AOC Cotes de Provence blend of Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault, with a deeper salmon pink hue. Its more intense red fruit flavor of raspberry, strawberry, and redcurrant give Classic a robust mouth feel that pairs perfectly with nearly any meal, from Mediterranean to Asian, grilled fish to heavy roasted meat. Its creamy texture and strong presence earned an impressive 89 points from Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate.With his winemaking underway, Stephen decided to innovate in marketing, too. He took his message directly to the people on social media and hit gold with a viral video of himself opening wine with a shoe, amounting to more than 6 million views on YouTube. Mirabeau also enjoys a direct connection with its consumers online: in addition to wacky wine-opening tricks, Stephen shares recipes, photos and recounts the ups and downs of their great adventure in Provence. Follow them @mirabeauwine and on Facebook.And now, Stephen’s winemaking journey continues with you. Bring a bottle of Mirabeau home to your family and have your summer of dreams come true.

His goal: to craft a Provence rosé that perfectly reflected the world-renowned wine region. With an expert team—including a local Provence winemaker with three decades experience and a native Aix-en-Provence wine expert—Stephen debuted Mirabeau Classic Rosé to international acclaim in Time, The Telegraph, and the UK’s The Sunday Times. The winemaker chronicles his winemaking journey in a series of YouTube videos, including a viral hit of him opening a bottle of wine with a shoe that has amassed over 6 million views. This summer marks Mirabeau’s American launch and the arrival of the top of the range Pure Mirabeau Rosé.Advertisement TAGSMirabeau Wine Twitter Home Industry News Releases Mirabeau en Provence Debuts Acclaimed Rosé Wines in U.S.Industry News ReleasesWine BusinessMirabeau en Provence Debuts Acclaimed Rosé Wines in U.S.By Press Release – July 17, 2014 74 0 Share Linkedin Facebook ReddIt Email Pinterestlast_img read more

Connacht Senior Club Final Preview – Being the small man on the field is…

first_imgCorofin’s Ian Burke speaking ahead of the AIB GAA Munster Senior Football Club Championship Final BY SHANE STAPLETON For exclusive content throughout the AIB Club Championships follow @AIB_GAA and The Corofin star has just become the first Galway man to win an All Star in 15 years, proving that size doesn’t always matter.The darting forward was a crucial part of Kevin Walsh’s plans all season, and once more is leading the county champions on a wintertime run in the AIB club championship.Having beaten Mountbellew-Moylough in the Galway decider, and following that up with a whopping 28-point win over Clann na nGael in Connacht, their sights are now set on Ballintubber in the decider.Corofin, who are chasing a provincial three-in-a-row, have been an oppressive power in recent times, but the likes of Diarmuid and Cillian O’Connor will be hoping to stop them in their tracks.Should the Tribal County side claim the trophy once more, it will cap off what has been an exceptional year for Burke — who was also a key man in the AIB club final win over Nemo Rangers in March.“Yeah, it’s a busy schedule but it’s a good complaint in a way,” says Burke at the launch of the AIB GAA Connacht Senior Football Championship Final.“You’re playing high-quality games all-year round.“From the summer with Galway, onto a Connacht final with Corofin, it’s all championship games. That’s what every player wants and thankfully we’re doing well in it. So it’s easy enough to keep it going, you know.“2018 has been good personally, but I’m also happy to be involved with two successful teams, which is way more important,” he adds.“We had a brilliant campaign with Galway, a lot of positives and a lot of things to work on for 2019.“Then to come back with the club, we’re lucky here that we’re doing okay. Very lucky to get over Mountbellew-Moylough after a replay. We got over Clann na nGael but a big test again now coming against Ballintubber, and we’ll have our work cut out to beat them.“The two O’Connors, Jason Gibbons and Alan Dillon, all of these guys have huge experience in big games. It’s just a matter of trying to stop them guys playing, and hopefully we can play the kind of game we want. We’re under no illusions of what to expect when we go down to Castlebar, it will be a tough game.”Gaelic football is full of tall, powerful, athletic players who can get up and down the field. Burke can certainly move, as he showed in testing out Dublin’s Eoin Murchan in the All-Ireland semi-final, but he breaks the mould when it comes to the typical player profile.“Growing up, I was always smaller than everyone else, so it’s nothing new. I just try to go out and play my own game and fit into the system that we play as best I can. I’m happy to do that and happy that it has kind of been working the past while.“I always try to adapt my game, learn new tricks, and keep in games if you are being marked tight. Just get on ball, things like that.“There’s no such thing as a stereotypical Gaelic footballer. They all bring different attributes and skill sets, so it’s nice to have a blend of everything. It’s healthy for the team too.”Galway had an excellent start to 2018, narrowly losing the league final to Dublin, then going on to win Connacht, before coming up short against the Dubs once more in the All-Ireland semi-final. In 2019, the Tribe will be looking to claim a third provincial crown in four years, but the landscape has shifted noticeably ahead of the new season. James Horan has returned with Mayo, while Anthony Cunningham has been appointed as manager of Roscommon.“It’s obviously a huge challenge trying to win a Connacht title and we were lucky enough to win it this year. James Horan will make it interesting but we’re just focused on ourselves. We’ll try to get a few young lads in and hopefully they can make impacts like Sean Andy O Ceallaigh and Sean Kelly did, and other lads who got All Star nominations. So if we can find a few guys with similar impacts, Galway should be in a good place.”The challenge for Burke and Co, as it is for every other challenger, is to dislodge the dominant Dubs. Jim Gavin has honed his team year-on-year, and certainly it was proven this past season that Galway won’t oust the champions without progressing significantly.“We’re an evolving team,” says Burke.“At the end-of-year accounts, we would say we had a lot of boxes ticked. That being said, the way we ended the year was a bit disappointing. Maybe to just be more consistent… we had maybe one and a half bad games throughout the season, so maybe just be more consistent in the big games.“In the league final against the Dubs, we were there or thereabouts. In the championship (All-Ireland semi-final) second half, maybe we fell a bit away. Just to try to address that, and try to adapt some systems and processes, and try to evolve even more.” print WhatsApp Facebook Twitter Emaillast_img read more

In a virtual team, each person may develop their own processes and procedures that don’t mesh with the way other team members are working. It’s best to use a project management system to keep everyone in touch.Goals: Articulate project goals and objectives clearly.Help remote workers understand what they are working towards by setting the correct priorities and goals. In a virtual work setting, the importance of having clear project goals and objectives cannot be overstated. These goals should be clearly communicated during meetings, regular check-ins, and performance reviews, too.Communication: Keep communication lines open.Communication is key when you have a completely remote workforce. You have to get really good at deliberate, structured communication, making sure the team is checking in daily. Set aside time for your one on ones with your remote employees. Also, encouraging team members to keep in touch with each other can be invaluable for additional points of communication. Effective communication will help you build a team that is innovative, efficient, and results-driven.Trust: Trust is key.Recruiting remote workers you can trust can be a time-consuming process when you’re trying to run a business. And since not everyone can work in a remote environment, it’s important to find people you can trust to complete their tasks, and stay productive when working under their own steam. Hire doers, people you know they will get stuff done.Team building: Develop a happy and engaged team.Compensate for the fact that you are not bumping into each other by trying to create some social aspects with a remote team.

Google Calendar Gets Disappointing Offline Mode

first_imgTags:#Google#news#NYT#web Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Just last week, Google announced offline support for Gmail, and today, Google Calendar is also finally getting a similar upgrade. Google Apps users are the first to get access to this new feature, though we assume that Google will roll this out to all of its users soon. The offline feature was built on top of Google Gears, which is available for Firefox, Safari, and Internet Explorer on Windows, Mac, and Linux. Sadly, Google Calendar only allows for read-only access while you are offline, which is quite a disappointment. Gmail, on the other hand, features a ‘flaky connection‘ mode which gives you the option to compose new messages offline. Gmail then sends them automatically once you are back on the Internet. Without being able to enter new appointments or tasks into your calendar, or the ability to move appointments around, Google Calendar’s offline feature is not half as useful as it could have been.Earlier this year, we saw some leaked screenshots that showed the ability to edit your calendar in offline mode, but Google apparently did not make this available yet. This is quite a disappointment, because the ‘flaky connection’ mode works very well in Gmail. We can only assume that Google will add a more fully featured offline mode in the near future.center_img 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Related Posts frederic lardinoislast_img read more
