    lovers there s not much else to do if you don t like wine Getting here from the north is a two hour train ride from Bilbao from the south it is a 3 5 hour drive from Madrid or accessible from the Ebro axis from the east via Logrono 53km which is where we stayed on our trip Tondonia is the most famous vineyard in Rioja having been acquired from the clergy in 1913 it is a beautiful vineyard over 247 acres at 1600 feet above sea level on the right bank of the Ebro with alluvial clay where all 4 red grapes Tempranillo the main grape Mazuelo Graciano and Garnarcha are grown A 1970 Tondonia Gran Reserva tasted on this trip was probably our wine of the trip spectacular secondary characteristics with leaf tea gravel wild mushrooms on the nose stellar acidity with no tannins sage and savory elements on the balanced palate extraordinary Hard to believe but the current release of the Gran Reserva is their 1981 that is how long they are prepared to wait to release their best When it was released it sold so quickly that the winery decided to put a hold on shipping until further notice the demand was so high It is mind boggling how much time and money are sitting in their cellars these wines are stored until the winemakers feel it is peaking before they are released Besides Tondonia the other single vineyards Bosconia Cubillo and Zaconia all have their own special traits that speak to the soil and terroir all beautifully expressive of the land Only estate bottled fruit is used in their wines which are legendary and renowned for their ageability and that includes the longaging white beautiful traditionally made style with elegance and complexity in abundance While the cellars are ancient there are modern elements as in the main entrance to the pavilion is a modern building in the shape of a decanter see above created by Dame Zaha Hadid the famous Iraqi British architect Its unique onion peel layers is distinctly neofuturistic with different presentations and multiple perspective points giving different impressions Stepping into the cellars themselves is like stepping back in time to the 1880 s There are barrels that are 140 years old still in use and then there is the cobwebby cellars If they leak they are repaired Those who don t like penicillin or webs or dampness better stay home but alas this micro climate takes decades to develop and gives the cellaring conditions that make these wines special They also employ their own cooper to make barrels as required Thus a definite hilite of our entire trip to one of the leading wineries in all of Spain You must all try these exceptional wines if you are at all interested in Rioja Here is a list of available Heredia wines at deVine s 2006 Lopez de Heredia Vina Cubillo Crianza 375mL 24 99 2006 Lopez de Heredia

Changes Filed under deVine s Daily Blog Article Dirk 1 13 pm Author Jim Phelan Liquor taxes have been in the news recently with the freshman Alberta NDP government introducing a new set of AGLC Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission mark up rates on October 27th To understand what that means for you the consumer we d like to explain where these changes have come from and what has changed Alberta s past couple years contained some dramatic political changes ousting a conservative Premier in March of 2014 before the Orange Crush booted Alberta Conservatives out of office and brought Rachel Notley s NDP into power on May 5th 2015 During this time many governance issues experienced some flip flopping including liquor mark ups The previous government introduced changes to the system in March and new NDP government just released changes again with the new budget Overall the changes are nothing too drastic and mostly affect the beer market It s worth keeping in mind that Alberta s rates are reflected in real dollars per litre rather than a percentage and as such they need to be re adjusted regularly This year was a bit irregular because there were two incremental inflationary increases within a year s timeframe On the face of things the most drastic changes are to the small brewer markup which now only applies to brewers from Alberta British Columbia and Saskatchewan Yet this protectionist system is not unprecedented it is in fact a reversion back to the system in place prior to March of this year Under the pre March system the low rates only applied to brewers within Alberta The biggest actual changes apply to smaller craft brewers from outside those three provinces Before March of this year the mark up for an American micro brewery producing less than 20 000 hectoliters annually paid 0 98 per litre At the same production rate the same brewery would have switched down to 0 20 per litre between March and October As of the new budget the current rate jumps to 1 25 per litre a change which consumers will notice affect prices on the shelf Low ABV alcohol per volume High production beers experienced the least change moving from 1 20 to 1 25 per litre High ABV markups jumped about 20 cents per litre in each category and ciders did the same going from 1 57 to 1 81 for lower ABV and from 4 27 to 4 51 for higher ABV All in all the changes give a significant advantage to local products particularly those from BC and
