Sarah Tavel Joins VC Firm Benchmark

Our favorite summer wines at Bistro Des Copains , the small French bistro I co-own in Occidental, California, are rosé wines from the South of France. These rosé wines are bone dry, vibrant, delicious and easy to drink. The drive from Avignon to Tain l’Hermitage takes about 1 ½ hours, so after breakfast at the hotel, we will leave Avignon at 9:30 and arrive at Tain l’Hermitage at about 11, where we have an appointment for a tour and tasting of the wines of M. Chaputier: one of the great producers of the Rhone valley. Chaputier produces wines from a great many of the Rhone appellations, including the great AOCs of the north. Chaputier farms the majority of acreage of the iconic hill of Hermitage as well as vineyards in Crozes Hermitage,Cote Rotie, Condrieu, Saint Joseph, Saint Peray, and Cornas.

The grape types are: Grenache, maximum of 15% Cinsault, Clairette white and Rosé, and 10% maximum of Picpoul, Calitor, Bourboulenc, Mourvèdre, Syrah and Carignan. Maceration is allowed typically for 12 to 24 hours. Minimum alcohol is 11%, and some sources indicate that there is a maximum alcohol level as well.

In ASEAN countries where we can usually enter without visas, the immigration officers of such countries usually look for proof of accommodation in their country and return ticket to Philippines or any onward flight to any other countries, and for some, they require show money.

She offered us tastings of 3 vintages of Chateau Trinquevedel traditional rosé wine. We started with the 2008 as it was the lightest of the wines, then moved to the 2009 which showed more red fruit and finished with the 2007 which had the most structure.

Note that the recent article about free tourist visa for Filipinos who wish to travel USA is not yet confirmed and absolutely not true (as of now). New Mexico, in fact, is the oldest wine producing region in the US, and Gruet makes some of the best and most affordable sparkling wines using the traditional method (the method used to produce Champagne) available anywhere.
