#ZomatoBusiness thread!
1/ If you're not familiar with Zomato, it's an Indian food delivery and restaurant discovery company that's been making waves in the tech industry. They've expanded to over 10,000 cities in 24 countries and have become a household name in many regions.
2/ Zomato started out as a restaurant review and food delivery platform in 2008 and has since evolved into a multi-faceted company offering services such as online ordering, table reservations, and event ticketing. #onlineordering

If you’re looking for something a bit different on the #wine front this Xmas here are three of my favourite wines I have tried and tested over 2022. There all widely available in independent wine shops across the UK.
First stop is with either of these stunning white wines from Vino Verde in Portugal 🇵🇹. Simply put its like drinking mandarin juice! Delicious 😋
Next stop we head to Heathcote, Australia 🇦🇺 and @MunariWines for the best Shiraz I have ever tried. Despite having some amazing Rhône wines in our range this wine still comes out top for me.

Does the order of drinking wine and beer matter for hangover severity?

A thread 🧵👇

#beer #wine #hangover
It is well established that drinking too much alcohol will result in a hangover. It is commonly suggested that the hangover will be less if you stick to one type of alcoholic drink, rather than drinking different types of drinks.

In addition, there are several sayings such as: “Beer before wine and you’ll feel fine; wine before beer and you’ll feel queer”. This suggests that the order of drinks may impact the hangover.

I was asked to talk on "Working in a Male Dominated Profession" at the #EEAESEM22 women in economics retreat yesterday

In case they are useful for others, a thread on my advice 🧵👇
1/ First a disclaimer: I have a fundamental identification problem - I've not known anything different!!

So I'll likely be mixing up some general career advice & my own prefs - make sure you reflect on your own objective function
2/ There's work on average gender gaps in many dimensions: constraints, beliefs, negotiation styles = higher change women in the profession have diff views & needs from their male peers & seniors

Remember though that there's lots of overlap in distributions & many male allies

Ever notice that there's no ingredients list on a wine bottle?

That's because wine is just made from grapes right?

Thread ->
Before I got into making wine, I'd never even thought about what goes into the bottle, but the deeper I go into the wine industry, the shadier it seems.

Wine hides behind a sheen of romance, pleasure and class, when in actuality, it has a lot in common with other industries.
So what else goes into wine?

There are additives for color, aroma, mouthfeel, acidity, clarity, cold stability and heat stability.

Well exciting news folks! If you live in the Cardiff area something new is coming to town. Something that will hopefully change the dynamic of wine wholesale and retail in Cardiff for the good.
In July @direct_spanish is opening its new store on Penarth Road. This family business has been trading since 2001, and has built up quite a reputation for quality in both the food and wine it sells from Spain. The owners source most of their wares directly from source.
To give you an idea of the reputation, the fabulous @NeilCammies in his last last wine review ever today has selected one of the their wines and trust me Neil save the best for last!

I have actually taken the time to make a spreadsheet with the proposal for the excise reform proposal. My spreadsheet shows me that an average bottle based on 13.5% would cost the consumer £0.69 per bottle more based on all other costs remaining the same.
If that bottle has just 1% more ABV at 14.5% then the price increase per bottle is £1.03. Again with no other fix costs changing. Moreover the reduction on Fizz has almost no effect on the retail prices. There would be no benefit to the consumer.
So once again in the cold light of day this wonderful proposal from @RishiSunak is based on nothing but hot air. Higher prices for consumers, no gain on tax revenues, but an unworkable regime for the actual importers.

Hey @RishiSunak can you explain to the world how moving from 4 levels (bands) of wine taxation to 26 levels (your proposal) is simplifying the excise system. Would really like to know. Maybe I am missing something because seems more complicated. So don’t be shy guy, let us know.
Hey me again @RishiSunak. Looking like 112,000 people would like you to answer this question or do I have to get @CPJElmore to do it in Parliament. Be a good egg and answer the question.
When is duck not a duck? Below is the proposal from government for #wine excise reform. Read very carefully bullet point 3. Its very cleverly written and designed to confuse.

PT1 - A Brexit update you won’t be aware of when you’re enjoying a brilliant glass of European wine.

Here’s a photo from just 1 of several UK based shipping Freight Forwarders we work with, who collect / ship our wines from the EU & deliver to the UK, with the following message
PT2 - regarding the environmental impact Brexit has created by the UK Government with the newly introduced EX1 and C88 documents for UK Port Authorities, and the new VI1 documents are still yet to be introduced by the UK Government within months.
PT3 - “We all knew it would be bad and we haven’t been disappointed.
However I don’t think we realised the impact on the rainforests… see the picture below.

Enología al microscopio: el mundo del vino como nunca antes lo viste

El mundo del vino es infinitamente atractivo e interesante. Cuando uno cree haber encontrado algo nuevo siempre aparece otro enfoque de una perspectiva que no conoce.

#Wine #Wines #Winelovers
Estas son células de levadura de Brettanomyces responsables del carácter «brett» de los vinos.

La percepción olfativa resulta controvertida ya que los descriptores sensoriales tipo animal (ratón, establo, cuadra, etc), que genera son considerados tradicionalmente un defecto.

Estas son partículas de azúcar natural flotando en vino tinto. Estas fotografías microscópicas realizadas por el Dr. Greenberg muestran cómo las partículas de azúcar disueltas en el vino se convierten en prismas frente a la luz del microscopio elect.

A pedido del público, ahora les enseño a identificar las variedades de UVA BLANCA en el viñedo por su FORMA Y TAMAÑO

#Wine #Wines #Winelovers
Ahora, es el turno de las uvas blancas. Cabe aclarar que el listado es enorme, y en esta oportunidad voy a enseñarles las más elaboradas en nuestro país.

Antes de empezar voy a compartir una infografía que nos va a ayudar a entender mejor las caracterizaciones de cada hoja

Racimo: pequeños, alcanzan una compacidad entre media y elevada, de forma cónica típica de la variedad.

Hoja: La adulta es mediana, con una baja densidad de pelo en y entre los nervios y está compuesta de 5 lóbulos confiriendo a la hoja una forma pentagonal.

Atentos que les voy a enseñar a identificar uvas tintas por su forma y tamaño

A pesar que la uva es uva, cabe destacar que cada varietal tiene su forma y tamaño, no solo del racimo, sino también de su hoja. Esto se llama “morfología y ampelografía”

Racimo: de tamaño pequeño, con una compacidad baja y largo pedúnculo
Hoja: la adulta tiene un tamaño medio, está compuesta de 3-5 lóbulos, siendo el central el más destacado. Los senos peciolares son profundos y tienen una forma de V estrecha.

Racimo: de pequeño tamaño con alto grado de compacidad. Bayas de tamaño pequeño-medio.
Hoja: la adulta es de tamaño medio y forma pentagonal, esta compuesta por 3-5 lóbulos ligeramente superpuestos.

En estos últimos días en #Mendoza hemos tenido muchas lluvias y es inevitable pensar en la botrytis. Si bien en algunas partes del mundo se la trabaja bajo el nombre de "podredumbre noble", aquí en Argentina mayormente es un problema Image
La botrytis es un hongo que puede atacar a todos los órganos verdes de la cepa. Image

Hoy es el Día Internacional del Syrah

#Wine #Wines #Winelovers Image
Caraterísticas del fruto y hoja

Racimo: cónico alargado, con tendencia a cilíndrico, mediano, compacto y bien lleno.

Hoja: adultas con lóbulo central plano o plegado asimétricamente con laterales doblados hacia arriba. Image
Origen del nombre:

Según la leyenda, viene de la deformación de «Darou é Shah» (el remedio del rey), calificativo dado al vino por el rey-semi-dios persa Djemchid. La Syrah es una de las uvas más viejas del mundo. Image

Treasury Wine Estates $TWE $TWE.AX is a global premium wine producer, owner of Penfolds Grange – a collector’s item. Recently it has been hit hard by Covid-19 and China-Australia trade wars. Earnings are down, but is there an asset play? Let’s take a deep dive. 👇
1. Investment Thesis: I prefer stalwarts, but this looks like a decent one-sided asset bet with significant optionality (takeovers, divestments, new markets, completion of trade wars, or return to earnings). The sum-of-its-parts valuation shows it’s may be heavily undervalued.
2. Macro: The earliest remnants of wine date back to the Neolithic period (c.8500BC) – arguably one of the most disruption-proof industries. People will continue to drink wine I suspect for another 10,000 years toboot.. Image

Les voy a contar brevemente sobre la madurez de la uva.

Es un fenómeno asincrónico. Maduran a destiempo las uvas de diferentes cepas del mismo cuartel, los racimos de una misma cepa y los granos de un mismo racimo. También son diferentes los momentos y mecanismos que llevan a la madurez de la pulpa, la piel o película y la semilla.
El seguimiento de la madurez es importantísimo y a su vez extremadamente complejo. En este período nos fijamos en tres tipos de sustancias:

Sustancias de acumulación
Sustancias de degradación
Sustancias formadoras de complejos
