Sonoma Collection Wines Releases ‘Thinnings’

first_imgHome Industry News Releases Sonoma Collection Wines Releases ‘Thinnings’Industry News ReleasesWine BusinessSonoma Collection Wines Releases ‘Thinnings’By Press Release – May 28, 2021 68 0 AdvertisementLow Alcohol, Lower Calorie, Better for You!SONOMA, CA (May 28, 2021) — The family behind La Prenda Vineyards and Sonoma Collection wines has released an early harvest wine just in time for summer called ‘Thinnings’. The name ‘Thinnings’ refers to the practice of selectively removing grape clusters from the vines early in the season to manage quality and crop levels.When tasting Chardonnay grapes in 2018 the team found the grapes from our Sonoma Valley vineyards had an ideal balance of acidity and sugar early in the season. “We really enjoyed the clean flavors of these chardonnay grapes as they developed. The acid and sugar was in balance and we tasted tropical fruit flavors we really liked. We picked right away to capture the freshness of the early days of harvest,” said La Prenda Winemaker Michael Cox.If the quarantine has you looking for wine that is better for you, this light bodied, lower alcohol wine is it. The grapes are picked early when acid is high and sugar levels (Brix) are low, resulting in a naturally low alcohol wine. This is a pure expression of Chardonnay that is unencumbered by oak or buttery (malolactic) notes. Fresh and a bit shy in aromatics the wine opens up with a bit of time showing discreet hints of lime and green melon.  The wine is ultra-crisp and bright on the palate with notes of freshly sliced green apples. It truly encompasses our “Wines for Lunch” philosophy.Sonoma Collection is a family-owned venture featuring sustainably farmed wines honoring Sonoma Valley grape farmers. Sonoma Collection captured a top ten spot in Wine Business Monthly’s annual Hot Brands in 2015. Other labels include Fifth Hill, La Prenda, Happy Wife, Quarantine Wife and 95476. La Prenda Vineyards Management has been in business for 13 years and farms over 30 properties in the Sonoma Valley, Carneros, Sonoma Mountain and Bennett Valley appellations that are certified Fish Friendly Farming. They provide quality farming while increasingly incorporating mechanization in a changing farming environment.

NWC Moves to Improve Negril Water Supply

first_imgNWC Moves to Improve Negril Water Supply EnvironmentApril 4, 2013 FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail The National Water Commission (NWC) has embarked on several measures to improve water delivery in the Negril area during the short term, and to develop additional sources within 18 months.This was announced by Minister of Water, Land, Environment and Climate Change, Hon. Robert Pickersgill, while addressing hoteliers and other stakeholders at a function held at Breezes Negril, on April 3.The meeting was held by the Minister to outline strategies being employed by the NWC to alleviate the difficulties being experienced by residents and businesses during the drought affecting the island. One of the measures, the Minister said, is that the NWC is aggressively trying to deal with leaks as they are indentified on the system.Mr. Pickersgill said the NWC is also trying to ensure the effective implementation of a schedule, to ensure that all customers receive some water at least every other day for at least eight hours, and that the Commission is already paying $9 million monthly for the trucking of water, from which it recovers no revenue.“A new loading bay has been established along the Sheffield main road, to reduce the time, cost and difficulties involved in the legal trucking of water, and this is to be fully operational later this week,” the Minister informed.“We are appealing to persons not to support the illegal extraction of water from the system, as this practice is only making a bad situation worse. Furthermore, the quality of water delivered in trucks that are not known to have been sterilized, cannot be guaranteed,” he stated.Other measures to improve water supply in the Negril area are the addition of two Rapid Response trucks; and work currently taking place at the Great River Treatment Plant to get the facility to produce its maximum of 15 million gallons per day, to boost the Logwood system.The Minister said for the longer term, work will be done to expand the water production capacity of the Martha Brae Treatment Plant from 6 million gallons per day to 11 million, as part of the process of having more water on the North Coast to distribute westwards. “This project is scheduled to be completed in about 18 months,” he added.Mr. Pickersgill said that surveyors are currently working in the town of Lucea on preparatory works for an improved pipeline network through the town, to allow for water from the Great River Treatment Plant to come as far as Green Island, and for water from the Logwood Treatment Plant to be dedicated to serving Negril.By Garfield Angus, JIS reporter RelatedNWC Moves to Improve Negril Water Supply RelatedNWC Moves to Improve Negril Water Supplycenter_img RelatedNWC Moves to Improve Negril Water Supply Advertisementslast_img read more

At the time, OTE Group was said to be in talks to sell its controlling stake in Telkom Romania to Roussev, however it now appears the preferred route is to break it into business lines.The transactions would be subject to regulatory approval. In the mobile sector, selling to Orange would reduce the number of operators to three. Combining the two bases as they stood at the end of Q1 2019 (by GSMA Intelligence connection figures) would give Orange a market share of 53 per cent.Orange already leads the market by connections with 10 million, followed by Vodafone with 9.7 million. Telekom Romania had 4.9 million, with RCS & RDS on 3.4 million.

New Z-Wave Long Range Spec Offers 4x Wireless Range and 10x Node Scalability for Larger Network Support

first_imgThe Z-Wave Alliance, a standards organization dedicated to developing and advancing the Z-Wave® wireless smart home protocol, announced the new Z-Wave Long Range (Z-Wave LR) specification.Engineered to provide significantly extended wireless range and support robust networks, Z-Wave LR extends Z-Wave connectivity beyond the interior boundaries of the home to improve wireless transmission range of peripheral Z-Wave devices such as door locks, garage door sensors, gate access solutions, and more, while increasing scalability to over 2000 nodes on a single smart home network.Developed and managed by the new Z-Wave Alliance Technical & Certifications workgroup, Z-Wave LR ushers in a new era of Z-Wave connectivity and brings expanded options for the smart home, multi-dwelling units and hospitality use cases.Increased Coverage To ensure complete home or building coverage, or to expand the network into the yard, most Z-Wave installations today leverage Z-Wave repeaters to strengthen and expand coverage. Z-Wave LR eliminates the need for a repeater within the network by increasing the transmission range found in Z-Wave. Increased range unlocks new potential for Z-Wave networks, making it easier than ever before to enroll smart home and IoT devices deployed at the end of the yard or beyond for enhanced functionality.Increased ScalabilityAs the average number of installed smart home devices continues to increase, so too does the strain on the network. To support the upward trend in the number of sensor and IoT devices within homes and MDU environments, Z-Wave LR also increases scalability on a single smart home network to over 2000 nodes – a 10x increase from Z-Wave.Optimized Battery Life With dynamic power control to optimize operation, Z-Wave LR increases typical sensor use cases on a coin cell battery up to ten years.Interoperability and Backwards Compatibility As with all certified Z-Wave devices, Z-Wave LR devices can be installed within any Z-Wave network and feature interoperability and backwards compatibility with any previously installed Z-Wave device.Certification   The Z-Wave LR specification will be managed and certified under the Z-Wave Plus V2 certification program, which currently mandates the inclusion of the enhanced S2 security framework as well as SmartStart, a setup feature that enables true plug and play for the consumer smart home. Mitchell Klein, Executive Director, Z-Wave Alliance stated that the Z-Wave LR specification is the first of many technical developments to come from within the new Alliance standards development organizational structure. As smart home networks continue to grow, mature, and add more complex devices, there is a need for more robust technology to support them. With Z-Wave LR, they are building upon Z-Wave’s legacy of strong networks by supporting more devices in a home or building with increased node counts and greater range. It’s more important than ever that IoT devices live on strong, reliable networks, and they are excited to support this with the latest Z-Wave specification.Technical details and an introduction to Z-Wave Long Range was highlighted in a session at Works With by Silicon Labs Virtual Conference on September 9-10, 2020.Click here to know about Z-Wave technologylast_img read more

City lose to second half strike by Scans

first_imgBangkok Casuals Football League 2013Pattaya City FC were on their travels to play another mid-table fixture last weekend against the Scans in Bangkok. City started well and in an open game there were chances created at both ends of the field but neither team could find the finishing touch in an entertaining half of football that remained goalless at the break.  City came closest to scoring when new signing Alex Caliskan’s volley hit the bar and was cleared to safety.City could count themselves unfortunate again at the start of the second half when the tireless Emery’s curling shot also hit the underside of the Scans bar and a further good scoring opportunity was missed by Paul Fox.With luck seemingly not on City’s side today, it appeared inevitable that their opponents would be the ones to make the breakthrough and they duly obliged from a direct free-kick that the City keeper got a hand to but could not prevent from crossing the goal line.City’s response was immediate with Bryant having a shot saved at the other end and they put the hosts on the back foot for sustained periods of play but just couldn’t buy a goal today.  The final score saw the Scans taking maximum points with a 1-0 win.last_img read more
