Sensorist Climate Monitoring System
     
       



I recently tested and reviewed a novel climate monitoring system that is a terrific addition to a wine cellar...
It connects wirelessly to your WiFi network, and provides real-time temperature and humidity monitoring.

Sensorist has built an ingenious website that presents your data across several dimensions. You can also download your data to Excel, if you wish to do your own analysis.
The website enables you to set alarm thresholds that will send you alerts anytime a threshold is exceeded or goes back into range.

If that's not enough, there is an App for your smartPhone that gives you real-time and historic presentation of the data!

My review includes screen shots, and a sampling of data from my testing.

Links to the Vendor's website and on-line store are also in my review... Click this link to learn more:

Winemaker Dinner: Noelia de Paz of Bodegas Tampesta

 

In 2000, the very talented Noelia de Paz and her brothers started something quite unique when they sought help from one of Spain's most prestigious and venerable winemakers, Raúl Peréz.  Noelia, in collaboration with Raúl, planted some very special vines in northwest Spain's under-the-radar but oh-so-promising Tierra de León DO.  Over the course of the last fourteen years Noelia and Raúl have worked determinedly to handcraft some of Spain's most distinct, interesting, artisanal wines under the Bodegas Tampesta label.

We are thrilled to welcome winemaker Noelia de Paz to co-host this very special themed dinner featuring her unique wines.

Jazz Age Lawn Party

The Jazz Age Lawn Party is New York City’s original prohibition era inspired gathering. Hosted and conceived by Michael Arenella, the event started as a small gathering of perhaps fifty friends and fans. The event, initially produced by the island, was handed over to Michael in its third year to organize and grow. Under his watch, the event was carefully crafted and nurtured, becoming what is now referred to by The Wall Street Journal as, “the biggest (not to mention the cleanest and most family-oriented) regular event in the ‘Retro Noveau’ movement...” It was at this time that St-Germain joined forces with The Lawn Party, delightfully whetting the whistles of fops and flappers with their refreshing summer cocktails.

Selected by The New York Times as one of the most memorable events of 2011 and 2012, The Jazz Age Lawn Party offers a magical opportunity to travel back in time. Two weekends a year, guests are invited to discover and experience one of the most colorful and formative epochs in American history.
