Cheese 2013 Showcasing the Balkans
It’s happening in Bra (Piedmont, Italy) from September 20 to 23: The ninth edition of Cheese, the international biennial event organized by the City of Bra and Slow Food with the participation of the Italian Ministry for Agricultural Policy. The event dedicated to “milk in all its shapes and forms” has created an international network of cheesemakers and artisans who gather in Bra every two years to present their products, meet co-producers and discuss old and new challenges of the trade, existing laws and regulations and market prospects. Among the protagonists of this edition are seven Balkan countries (Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Republic of Macedonia, Romania and Serbia) and Turkey, all involved in the ESSEDRA project. Support will be given to identify and evaluate traditional local products, and to promote European policies in favor of small-scale food producers.

Mimolette Cheese banned in the USA PDF Print E-mail

 The mimolette cheese seen here is produced in Isigny-sur-Mer, north-western France

 

Indignation is growing among cheese-lovers in France and the US after Washington branded a type of French cheese as unfit for human consumption. read more here 

The US government slapped an import ban on mimolette cheese at the end of May, leaving 1.5 tonnes of the item impounded at a warehouse.

American food inspectors object to the use of mites to refine its flavour.

A producer called the ban "absurd" while fans have launched social media campaigns such as "Save the mimolette".

According to the US food and drug administration, the cheese "appears to consist in whole or in part of a filthy, putrid or decomposed substance or be otherwise unfit for food".

"This is absurd," a mimolette producers' spokesman said. "Changing the production process would change the flavour. No one has ever got ill from eating our cheese."

However, French junior minister for food Guillaume Garot suggested this week that mimolette makers would have no choice if they wanted to export to the US.

"Our only concern is to work with French cheese-makers towards a new production process for aged mimolette destined for export," he said.

Certificate of Registration advances Napa Valley brand protection PDF Print E-mail

Certificate of Registration advances Napa Valley brand protection
6/25/2013 - St. Helena, CA--Officials at the Napa Valley Vintners (NVV) trade association announced today another milestone in its effort to protect the Napa Valley brand name worldwide: receipt of Certificate of Trade Mark Registration from the Intellectual Property Office in New Zealand. The registration provides consumer protection against wines illegitimately labeled as being from Napa Valley in this significant wine producing region.
"Although New Zealand is not a major export market for Napa Valley wine, it is an important wine producer and there is potential for misuse of the Napa Valley name," declared Pat Stotesbery, proprietor of Ladera Vineyards, former NVV board president and current chair of the organization's Napa Name Protection committee. "This registration is another achievement in our ongoing effort to ensure consumer confidence that when a bottle of wine says 'Napa Valley' in the brand name, the wine in that bottle is indeed produced from Napa Valley grapes and reflects the consistent quality of our region."
The NVV had previously obtained protective status for the Napa Valley brand in Brazil, Canada, India and Thailand, was the first wine region in the world to obtain the related Geographic Indication (GI) status in China in 2012, and was the first non-European wine region to secure GI status from the European Union in 2007.
About the Napa Valley Vintners
The Napa Valley Vintners (NVV) is the non-profit trade association responsible for promoting and protecting the Napa Valley appellation as the premier winegrowing region. From seven founding members in 1944, today the association represents more than 450 Napa Valley wineries and collectively is a leader in the world-wide wine industry.

A chinese wine, Château Hansen, sells for 500 Euros PDF Print E-mail
Written by translated from voyages vins du monde   
Sunday, 09 June 2013 17:52
 
It was only a matter of time before China positioned its wines in the international market of expensive wines. But taking into account the quality of Chinese wines today, all indicated that it would take years before that country raised the bar.
However, Château Hansen, in Wuhai, in Inner Mongolia - a region best known for its coal mines rather than its wines - has just announced the release this summer  of Red Carmel, a 100% cabernet sauvignon varietal.
The grapes are sourced from a single vineyard in the northern province of Xingxia bordering Inner Mongolia.   The grapes are harvested twice: two third are harvested when they reach 12% alcohol and the rest are a late harvest when grapes are beginning to dry on the vines.  The wine is vinified under the supervision of Bruno Paumard, a sommelier, writer et former winemaker at the domaine de Bouvet-Ladubay in the Loire Valley. He has announced that 10,000 bottles of the  2010 vintage will be released.   Château Hansen has already released 2 million bottles of blends of cabernet gernischt, semillon et riesling, which are distributed and sold in China.
