Cherokee and Park Service Offer Incentives for Early Repair of US 441

The Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians and the National Park Service are offering up to a $500,000 incentive for early completion of landslide repairs to U.S. 441 through the Great Smoky Mountains National Park - indicating both entities' concerns about the road closure's effects on Cherokee's economy. A 200-foot section of U.S. 441 in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park collapsed in a landslide during a week of heavy rainfall last month, forcing the park service to close the road, which serves as the main artery for motorists traveling from Tennessee to Cherokee. The park estimated the 3 to 7 million repair job would likely take until mid- to late May.

To give the contractor incentive, the Eastern Band and National Park Service have announced that they will pay $18,000 for every day repairs are completed before May 15. Together, they will dole out up to $500,000. However, if the company does not finish the project on time, it will cost. The contract with the park service will charge the contractor $18,000 for every day repairs go past May 15. Business leaders in Cherokee were glad that both entities are taking a proactive approach to ensure that U.S. 441 reopens in time for the main tourist season.

Mountain Spirits: WIne Tasting today at Asheville's Appalachian Vintner

February 16 2013, 3 PM - 7 PM at  Appalachian Vintner, 745 Biltmore Avenue Suite 121 in Asheville NC,  welcomes Robert Kral, owner of Robert Walters Selections for "Asheville's Best Wine Taisting". Robert was the wine director of Bouchon  in Asheville for years prior to opening his own import company. The portfolio is comprised of a handful of mainly small growers from Europe. This Saturday's tasting  showcase the wines of Domain Rouge Bleu.

Domain Rouge Bleu is made from very old vines from Sainte Cécile les Vignes, near Cairanne, on a great terroir mainly composed of pebbles and gravels from a old river bed. The winery is located on a 400 year old farm with techniques based upon bio-dynamic principles, harvesting beautiful grapes at very low yields. Wine making happens with natural yeasts, with minimum sulfites with the whole in concrete porous tanks. The wine is aged in tanks and in neutral barrels, producing 32, 000 most of which are exported.

The wines to be tasted are:

Dentelle Rosé : The name (Dentelle) is a play on words as we are facing Dentelles de Montmirail and as “Dentelle”, which means lace in English is a good way to describe this smooth and light wine made from Grenache and Carignan.

Dentelle Red : In the same spirit of the rosé, this red is made to be a refreshing wine. Carignan has this natural ability to bring freshness and Grenache will bring the body of the wine. This wine can be drunk young, on the fruit side and even a bit cool. With a bit of aging, it turns into more minerality with some spices and gamy flavors.

Mistral Red : Just a couple days before the start of the first harvest in 07, a strong Mistral wind blew all night and eventually made a lot of very mature clusters fall on the ground, resulting in an earlier picking. The full body, rich and powerful wine made from these very old vines was eventually named after this famous wind which describes quite well the wine.

Lunatique Red : The grapes for this wine were processed  separately on a spur of the moment decision  to move some grapes in fermentation (which can be very dangerous) to get an empty tank. This “Lunatique” decision gave the name to the wine.

Mountain Spirits: Aheville Beer Tasting

February 7, 5 to 7 PM at Brusin Ales, 66 Broad Street in downtown Asheville NC - FREE Abita Beer Tasting.  Join Brusin Ales and Ralph from Abita Beer in NOLA for a sampling of pre-Mardi Gras liquid treats.

Mardi Gras Bock: "Mardi Gras Bock (January - March) is the first of our seasonal brews. Abita Bock is brewed with pale, pilsner and caramel malts and German Perle hops. Our bock is similar to German maibocks with its rich malt flavor and full body. A perfect choice during Carnival season in New Orleans. Gruyére, Emmental and Swiss are nice cheese choices with Bock. Great with roasted beef or pork. Try it with Mexican food, too." [6.5% abv]
SOS (Save Our Shores): "Abita S.O.S.® (Save Our Shore) - a charitable pilsner is a message in a bottle...a distress signal for the troubled waters of our Gulf Coast. For every bottle sold Abita donates 75¢ to the rescue and restoration of the environment, industry and individuals fighting to survive the disastrous gulf oil spill. This unfiltered Weizen Pils is made with pilsner and wheat malts. It is hopped and dry hopped with Sterling and German Perle hops. It has a brilliant gold color, a sweet malt flavor, and a pleasant bitterness and aroma." [7.0% abv]

Andygator: "Abita Andygator®, a creature of the swamp, is a unique, high-gravity brew made with pale malt, German lager yeast, and German Perle hops. Unlike other high-gravity brews, Andygator® is fermented to a dry finish with a slightly sweet flavor and subtle fruit aroma. Reaching an alcohol strength of 8% by volume, it is a Helles Dopplebock. You might find it goes well with fried foods. It pairs well with just about anything made with crawfish. Some like it with a robust sandwich. Andygator® is also a good aperitif and easily pairs with Gorgonzola and creamy blue cheeses. Because of the high alcohol content, be cautious - sip it for the most enjoyment." [8.0% abv]

Abbey Ale: "Abita Abbey Ale honors the ancient tradition of monks who perfected the art of brewing beer to support the monastery and their "liquid bread." We offer up our support and thank them with a 25-cent donation to St. Joseph's Abbey with every bottle sold of this heavenly brew. Dark amber in color, the aroma of caramel, fruits and cloves invites you to contemplate the creamy head of this "Dubbel" or double ale. Abita Abbey Ale is a malty brew, top-fermented and bottle aged to rapturous perfection. This ale pairs well with barbecue, meat stews or a nice thick steak. For dessert, try Abita Abbey Ale with milk chocolate or chocolate bread pudding." [8.0% abv]
