Wine & Spirits Names kukkula’s Aatto a Top 100 Wine of…

first_imgAdvertisementA tribute to Winemaker Kevin Jussila’s father, the 2015 Rhône-style blend is the only red wine from Paso Robles to make the magazine’s coveted list.October 16, 2018 (Paso Robles, Calif.) – kukkula is pleased to announce its 2015 Aatto was named one of the world’s Top 100 Wines in 2018 by Wine & Spirits Magazine. The accolade appears in the current (Winter) issue.Appearing under the list’s Best Rhône Blends category, Wine & Spirits’ editors note Jussila “ferments his wines without added yeasts and creates some unusual blends, like this one, which combines Counoise, Mourvedre, and Grenache in a muscular, lean, and deliciously red fruited wine. It has Paso’s effusive ripeness, but it’s tempered by a lean, mineral-inflected tannic structure that sustains and focuses the flavors.”   As is the case with a majority of his portfolio, Jussila pulled from his Finnish roots when naming this wine. Aatto means “eve” in Finnish, and was named for his father, who was born on Christmas Eve.  “My late dad was a dreamer like me. He was born in Finland in 1932, and jumped on a ship with one of his brothers to Canada and ultimately raised a family in Southern California,” says Jussila. “I feel totally privileged to be here today, and this wine gives a nod to him, acknowledging I’m here because of his dreams. My dad passed away in 2005 just as we began this project. So, this recognition is bittersweet, as he never tasted this wine named in his honor.” Linkedin About kukkula Winerykukkula Winery located in Adelaida District in West Paso Robles is the dream of co-owners Kevin and Paula Jussila to craft world-class Rhone wine blends. Paying tribute to his Finnish heritage, kukkula (kook-koo-luh), means “the hill, or high place.” The organically-farmed estate wines are a reflection of the place and the duo’s passion. www.kukkulawine.com. Advertisement Home Industry News Releases Wine & Spirits Names kukkula’s Aatto a Top 100 Wine of 2018Industry News ReleasesWine BusinessWine & Spirits Names kukkula’s Aatto a Top 100 Wine of 2018By Press Release – October 16, 2018 287 1 Facebook Previous articleGloria Rivera Joins Silverado Vineyards as Northeast District Sales Manager, Based in New YorkNext article2019 World of Pinot Noir Tickets Officially on Sale Press Release Twittercenter_img Share Pinterest ReddIt TAGSkukkula WineryWine & Spirits Magazine Emaillast_img read more

Lakes and Pains

first_imgPALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. – Thrills and spills defined Monday’s wild finish to the Honda Classic. The final thrill was Padraig Harrington’s, the final spill Daniel Berger’s. In a punishing conclusion at PGA National, where every contender seemed to need a life preserver in a sink-or-swim final round that extended over two grueling days, Harrington emerged the winner, beating Berger with a par at the second hole of their sudden-death playoff. Harrington, 43, survived a five-day marathon of weather-delayed golf to claim his first PGA Tour title since the PGA Championship in 2008. He did so after Berger’s tee shot at the 17th hole in the Bear Trap sailed right, splashing down in the moat guarding that hole. Harrington won with a two-putt after stiffing a 5-iron to 3 feet, becoming the first player to win a PGA Tour event on a sponsor exemption since Lee Westwood won the FedEx St. Jude Classic in 2010. Honda Classic: Articles, videos and photos There was something cruelly apropos about this all ending with one last splashdown, because all that water around the Champion Course was such a large factor in the finish. Ian Poulter took a share of the lead into the final round and then hit five balls in the water, still somehow managing to finish tied for third, a shot out of the playoff. “It makes you feel pretty sick,” Poulter said. “I’ve handed one away, and it hurts.” Patrick Reed held a share of the lead going to the 15th tee before – kerplunk – pushing his tee shot in the water there. “It was a rough day,” Reed said. Even Harrington was a bit waterlogged entering the playoff. He looked like he had this event won in regulation, taking a one-shot lead to the 71st hole before slicing his tee shot in the water. He needed to hole a clutch 15-foot birdie putt at the 72nd hole to go to extra holes with Berger, who closed hard and early with a 64. “It’s hard to be the leader on this golf course,” Harrington said. “Just like it’s hard to be the leader in a major.” How difficult did all the trouble make the Sunday/Monday finish? Harrington made two double bogeys in the final round and still won. He was five shots down with eight holes to play. Berger was nine shots back beginning the final round. Harrington resumed the suspended final round at the eighth tee. In the end, he hit the shots he needed to win. “I never have trouble hitting a big shot at a big time,” Harrington said. Harrington needed a big shot to regain some relevancy in the game. Once ranked No. 3 in the world, he entered this week No. 297. He wasn’t eligible for last year’s Masters, and wasn’t this year, not until this victory. His exempt PGA Tour status also ran out this year. He has been playing the Tour on sponsor invites and as a past champion. “There are no doubt low points in those years, because you know, in 2008, 2009, I’m very much in the penthouse,” Harrington said. “I wasn’t quite down to the doghouse, but not far away from it.” This was Harrington’s 30th worldwide title, his sixth PGA Tour victory, his second Honda Classic title, coming 10 years after his first. Berger, a 21-year-old rookie from nearby Jupiter, finished the final round brilliantly, closing with back-to-back birdies to shoot 64. He missed a 13-foot birdie chance to win on the first playoff hole at No. 18. “If you told me I was going to finish solo second when the week started, I’d probably take it,” Berger said. “Right now, not as happy as I wish I was. But it’s just a good learning experience.” Berger, the son of former tennis pro Jay Berger, a three-time ATP winner, saw a chance to play in his first Masters sink to the bottom of the lake along with his ball at No. 17 in the playoff. It was a disheartening finish for locals rooting for Berger, who grew up driving the range picker while working at Dye Preserve. “I think this week shows, with the depth of the field and how many great players there are, that I can compete with the best in the world,” Berger said. “I know this won’t be the last chance that I have to win, so just look at it like that.” While Harrington relishes regaining exempt status and returning to the Masters, he isn’t allowing himself to dwell on that quite yet. “A lot of things are being said about what this means going forward,” Harrington said. “The one thing you learn is you don’t win as often as you think. I’m just enjoying winning the Honda Classic.”last_img read more

Class acts: Fowler, Garcia display dignity

first_imgPONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. – The Players Championship delivered a class act as its champion early Sunday evening. The most boisterous of those fans at the TPC Sawgrass Stadium Course got a better winner than they deserved in Rickie Fowler. Those who heckled Sergio Garcia through the back nine couldn’t have been golf fans because they would have known a derisively aimed barb in this game isn’t the same as it is in a baseball, basketball or football game. A taunt in a golfer’s backswing is more like a fan running onto the football field and tripping a running back racing up a sideline. It can unfairly interfere with the final outcome. It can mar the competition. Most of us, I think, are tuning in to see the world’s best players decide who wins a championship, not some idiot fan with a belly full of booze. As is usually the case, it was an obnoxious minority standing out Sunday, but more than the usual few in that natural amphitheater around the 17th island hole. Both Fowler and Garcia handled the unique challenges this past week with a dignity that fans who care about the game’s special values appreciate. For all the grief Garcia has received for painting himself as a victim of bad fortune in the past, he navigated above the fray during and after his round. He may have learned the hard way, but he deserves credit. Garcia was a model of restraint and grace under fire. Sunday wasn’t just a day the world’s best players got to show off their tremendous skill on a larger stage than their niche sport is accustomed. It was a day they got to show off how their sport aspires to be admirably different, even with barbarians at the gate. No, this isn’t to say golfers are perfect. They’re as flawed and corruptible as athletes from other sports, but the honor is in how the game aspires to be different. It’s in how the game holds its participants to a higher standard. The sport aims for a standard of civility that matters more than ever. At a time when blow-hard chest thumping, taunting and deflating footballs are the growing norm in a world where sportsmanship seems to matter less and less, Fowler and Garcia reminded us what’s still possible. They didn’t just deliver high drama along with Kevin Kisner and others. They delivered it nobly. While there are sure to be folks rolling their eyes reading this, dismissing the message as naïve, prudish and even out of touch, the game’s line of civility moves when nobody cares to notice. Competition is based on the Latin word competere, which means to strive together. Michael Josephson of the Josephson Institute of Ethics once instructed this writer that sportsmanship is based on the ancient Olympic ideal that you honor your opponent because you’re striving for excellence together. Your opponent makes you better. Sportsmanship is civility’s first cousin. “Manners are more important than laws,” British statesman Edmund Burke once wrote. “Upon them in a great measure the laws depend. The law touches us but here and there, and now and then. Manners are what vex and soothe, corrupt or purify, exalt or debase, barbarize or refine us, by a constant, steady, uniform, insensible operation, like that of the air we breathe … They aid morals, they supply them, or they totally destroy them.” There was refinement in Fowler’s and Garcia’s efforts. Fowler might have been privately angry over learning his peers voted he and Ian Poulter the most overrated players on the PGA Tour in an anonymous survey last week, but he was old school in the way he handled it. There was no knee-jerk rebuke. He didn’t shut down with his fellow players or media. “Rickie doesn’t work that way,” Fowler’s mother, Lynn, said shortly after Sunday’s trophy presentation. “I don’t think he works like that, based on something negative, at all.” Fowler obviously relished proving he isn’t overrated. “I laughed at the poll, but, yeah, if there was any question, I think this right here answers anything you need to know,” Fowler said. That’s as close as Fowler got to sticking what his victory means in anyone’s face. Instead, Fowler let his clubs do the talking for him. And, wow, he couldn’t have designated more eloquent spokesmen. That’s old school. Fowler’s 3-wood at the 16th in regulation on Sunday – that was a statement. He carved a 240-yard shot over the edge of the lake to 2 feet to set up eagle. He made statements with all those wedges he hit in close making birdie three times at the 17th. He did again with those two 330-yard drives down the middle of the 18th fairway, maybe his best shots all week. Garcia endured heckling on the back nine. His caddie even asked for extra security after making the turn. Garcia had to step off his shot at the 17th tee because of the abuse. “Obviously, some guys there don’t deserve to be here watching golf,” Garcia said. Like Fowler, Garcia kept answering with his clubs. He was at his most eloquent holing a 40-footer for birdie at the 17th to help him get in the playoff with Fowler and Kisner. “We all three did some amazing things coming in,” Garcia said. “I thought it was a well-played championship.” It was more than that. It was well conducted. That matters, too.last_img read more

EHF prevents regional league! Red light from Vienna for the new project!

first_imgShareTweetShareShareEmailCommentsWomens’ regional WRHL was subject to laughter by all handball factors in the region and wider, due to the fact that it was led in very non-serious manner and non-serious management, failing to even do more than just collecting participation money from the clubs and following the schedule – for example some sort of final tournament would be success. No strategy, terrible schedule, cancelling the F4 tournament this season because of not enough clubs, however, were not a reason enough for the EHF to support a new project which was developed by the Russian businessman – Sergei Samsonenko, who managed to gather sponsors and offer conditions similar to the mens’ SEHA league.At the executive committee meeting of EHF in Umag at the end of June, the league has been cancelled until further notice, probably until next season. With the stopping of this idea, the possibility to see the players of Metalurg, Vardar, Lokomotiva, Podravka, Krim, Brasov and perhaps Hungarian teams, was stopped too.Whether the fear of EHF that the creation of serious league would challenge the EHF Champions League (W) or just solidarity with Slovenian Leopold Kajin, the president of the competition commission of EHF and first man of the non-existant WHRL league.. either way women’s handball is to lose next year.

Slavia tried, but bowed its head against the Albanian runner-up

first_imgSlavia became the second Bulgarian team after Ludogorets, which is eliminated in European club tournaments this season.The Whites lost 1-2 away to the Albanian Kukesi in a match of the first qualifying round of the Europa League and quickly said goodbye to their participation outside the home championship.Zlatomir Zagorcic’s men tried, but were outplayed by the opponent, who showed more technical football and reached the winning goal in the 85th minute, and shortly before that the Bulgarians had equalized the score. Ours played too timidly and tried to break the game with violations, in addition to making mistakes in defense in individual clashes.Friday opened for the hosts in the 56th minute from a penalty after his team played a stronger first half. Slavia managed to equalize in the 81st minute with a nice goal with a header by Filip Krastev, but the joy lasted only 4 minutes, after which the reserve Cooper scored the winning goal.Thus, Slavia failed to repeat its achievement from 2018, when it overcame this round with success over the Finnish Ilves. The second in Albania Kukesi eliminated a rival in Europe for the first time in 4 years and will deservedly play in the second round.Kukesi started the match stronger as expected and had the first real chance to score. It happened in the tenth minute, when Eduard Roha easily overcame Petar Patev and shot hard from a small angle, but Stergiakis saved.Slavia gradually recovered and began to control the ball longer. He answered with an inaccurate shot by Emil Stoev from a distance.Stergiakis had to make another impressive intervention in the 25th minute, when the German Wessel Limai made an insidious blow. The guard was back in place.Stergiakis’ third consecutive intervention came in the 37th minute, when Limai tried his reflex again, this time with a long shot, with which the ball insidiously hit the door.By the end of the half Kukesi looked more often at the opponent’s door, but Slavia definitely felt comfortable and waited for counterattacks.Unfortunately, the second half started very badly for the “whites” from Sofia. Petar Patev made a reckless split against Gashi and a penalty was awarded to the hosts. Patrick Eze took the lead and opened the scoring in the 56th minute.The first really good chance for Slavia came in the 61st minute. A long technical shot by Filip Krastev forced goalkeeper Jika to make a save under the crossbar. There was momentum in the Whites’ game in those minutes.Zlatomir Zagorcic’s men rushed to the attack in the next minutes and reached successive corners after their shots were blocked several times. However, the accumulation of players in “white” in the penalty area never brought results.This changed in the 81st minute, when Kaloyan Krastev scored a great goal with his head. He took advantage of a cross by Petar Patev, which deflected technically in the far corner to beat the goalkeeper – 1: 1 and deservedly.Unfortunately, the joy remained too short. In the 85th minute after an attack from the right flank Gavazai centered to the reserve Cooper, who acrobatically deflected the ball with his foot and sent it inescapably in the corner for 2: 1.In the 88th minute, Cooper was very close to deciding everything in the match, when he was brought out alone against the goalkeeper, but Stergiakis intervened wonderfully for another great reaction in the match.Slavia got their chance to equalize in the 92nd minute, but wasted it. The ball fell to the will of Andrea Hristov, but he sent it high in the empty stands. The final pressure did not materialize.last_img read more
