Jubiläum: 75. Buch bei KünzlerBachmann Medien AG erschienen.

Periodika mit hohem Nutzwert. „Ein Buch muss Leserwünschen entsprechen, die Lesertreue fördern und neue Leser
gewinnen“ – nach diesem Prinzip wurde 1983 bei der KünzlerBachmann Medien AG in St. Gallen das erste Fachbuch publiziert.

Denn seitdem wurden im St. Galler Medienhaus 75 Bücher zu verschiedenen Themenwelten veröffentlicht.

Australia welcomes reduced harvest

Tag: Ländersigi.hiss @ 06:30

By Rebecca Gibb – Australia is making ‚good progress‘ in reducing its wine glut and now needs to start rebuilding its reputation, a leading industry body says. Following the release of the Winemakers‘ Federation of Australia’s vintage report, which estimates that the size of the 2010 Australian grape harvest has fallen to 1.53m tonnes, the Federation’s chief executive Stephen Strachan told decanter.com, ‚We are pretty pleased.

‚It shows that the industry adjustment process is well underway. While the supply issues are still there, the industry focus is rebuilding confidence. We need to build our reputation internationally. We don’t want to be the country that is on promotion most often.‘

This year’s crush marks a 12% decrease on 2009 and represents a 300,000 tonne reduction compared with the 2008 vintage. Strachan said, ‚We are not adding to the surplus and that’s got to be a good thing. We need to have another reduced intake next year, then we may be able to say we have turned the corner.‘

It is estimated that 8-12,000ha of vines have been removed or abandoned in Australia in the past year. ‚We still have further to go but we never thought there would be such a large reduction in one year,‘ added Strachan.

Hailstorms hit Barolo zone

Tag: Regionensigi.hiss @ 06:27

Two violent hailstorms have hit parts of the Barolo zone, causing serious damage. The storms hit between 2am and 4am on Friday and were scattered among the territory’s communes. La Morra and Serralunga d’Alba were the hardest hit, though the communes of Barolo, Verduno and Roddi were largely unaffected.

Producers fear the damage will affect the quantity of Barolo production for 2010. Pietro Ratti confimed notable damage in his vineyards in La Morra, although the exact amount will not be known for a few days.
Danilo Drocco, winemaker at Fontanafredda in Serralunga, remarked that in the winery’s section of the Lazzarito cru in Serralunga, ‚50% of the crop is lost for the year.‘

Sergio Germano, winemaker of Serralunga’s Ettore Germano estate, also noted serious damage in his Lazzarito plot, although his rows in the nearby Prapo and Ceretta vineyards of Serralunga were only minimally harmed.

While production will be down, producers it is too early to write off the 2010 vintage yet. ‚If this is the worst we get,‘ Vaira said, ‚we will be alright.‘ www.decanter.com
