lo·ca·pour

Locapour-dictionarylo·ca·pour (noun): One who drinks wine, beer, and spirits produced locally whenever possible.

Today's Washington Post features an article on the locapour movement in Virginia, along with some of the resistance of restaurants and chefs to regional wines:

As the "eat local" movement has taken root in restaurant kitchens across the country, a "drink local" movement has blossomed as well. It started, ironically enough, in California, where the San Francisco Chronicle reported last year that area vintners were complaining about locavore restaurants that glorified local farmers but stocked their lists with imported wines.

The article cites the example of German Broggi, beverage director at the Park Hyatt Hotel "and its fervently locavore restaurant, Blue Duck Tavern," who has embraced the drink local concept "with the idea of building Blue Duck Tavern's 'locapour' credentials."

Food critic Todd Kliman argued in favor of adapting the locavore ethos to wine in an article for The Daily Beast:

But if these are heady days for the local cheesemaker, butcher, and farmer, they're head-scratching days for the local vintner, who has been largely shut out of the feel-good foodie fad. If the wine lists at the country's most prominent locavore restaurants tell us anything, it's that "what grows together, goes together"—the mantra of the movement—is meant to refer to what's on the plate, not what's in the glass. Local and regional wines are seldom to be found.

Canada's Globe and Mail noted the existence of the drink local movement in a 2008 article on "The virtues and pleasures of being a 'locapour'":

Then there's the locavore movement - or, in this case, the locapour movement, as one might call it. Environmentally sensitive people are starting to see the virtue of drinking domestic product rather than transoceanic cargo, just as Europeans have done since the dawn of fermented fruit.

I am a big fan of the local foods movement. My mother especially enjoys her wine, and she always attempts to purchase local wines as opposed to imported wines. I think it must be more enjoyable to know specifically where your wines come from and to know the ingredients used. I think it would be a nice experience to actually set foot on the winery in which the wine you were enjoying came from. Also, this supports a more environmentally friendly way of life which is always a good idea.

 

i've never heard ths word before)) thanks a lot!

 

Very interesting read indeed. Thank you!

I have been looking for ways in upgrading my existing community (built in drupal) site into drupal commons. It seems to me that it can be only a fresh install of commons and not an upgrade from earlier drupal.

 

Makes smart use of Python generators, and comes with tools to run the resulting compiled code on Google App Engine.

 

Great story. I was there with you, as you well know, and am in the same boat. All I can add to your eloquent synopsis of the event is what might happen if the legislation goes too far.

 

This is a let a person feel very warm things. Because, the fate of the small animals can let a person think of man himself.In the us it seems some absurd reason,to make people see the human good light, let a person produce a warm impulse.

As much as three quarters of hospital staff are usually burdened with some sort of billing-related work in a traditional billing system. Opting for electronic medical billing solutions (ones that come with free EMR plans) that fit easily into the healthcare business' workflow are key to freeing up staff resources.

 

This is very informative " It started, ironically enough, in California, where the San Francisco Chronicle reported last year that area vintners were complaining about locavore restaurants that glorified local farmers but stocked their lists with imported wines."......Im sure more updates will be coming...

"Kliman argued in favor of adapting the locavore ethos to wine in an article"

Iremember perfectly the day that article from Todd Kliman was published, at first I couldn´t believe it, because honestly is very strange finding articles about him, about adapting the locavore ethos to wine, well it has been done for years now, is not new.
