In early 2020, the winery topped 600 individual 90+ ratings from top international wine critics since its founding in 1992.“Nick and Mari have been integral to the success of the winery, improving wine quality while supporting the growth of the brand and construction of our new facilities at Hollywood Station. These promotions bring their titles in line with their responsibilities and recognize their immense contributions to DeLille Cellars,” said Jason Gorski.DeLille Cellars moved its winemaking operations to the old Redhook facility in January of 2019.  The company recently opened its three-story retail tower in December 2019, which features seated tastings as well as elevated experiences such as library tastings and food and wine pairings.  The tasting room connects to the winemaking facility, where guests can peek into the barrel room to see the French oak barrels that are integral to DeLille’s traditional winemaking approach and philosophy.About DeLille CellarsBordeaux Inspired – Distinctly Washington – Uniquely DeLilleDeLille Cellars is the third oldest operating winery in Woodinville, WA, founded in 1992.

GAIL Seeking to Renew LNG Deal with Iran

first_imgIndia’s gas utility company GAIL is seeking to revive an LNG deal with Iran dating back from 2005 as steps on lifting of sanctions against Iran gain momentum.The agreement relates to a $ 22-billion LNG supply contract signed with National Iranian Gas Export Company (NIGEC) for the purchase of 5 million tonnes a year of LNG at a $3.215 per million British thermal unit.“Dialogue has been initiated with Iranian counterparts to revive the LNG supply longterm SPA,” the Economic Times writes citing GAIL’s business results.As informed, Iran has not yet officially responded to GAIL’s approaches and would need to first complete its LNG terminal under development at Tombak Port, before it moves ahead with the deal.The Bombay Stock Exchange informed today that it has also sought clarification from Gail (India) Ltd with respect to the talks and said it was still waiting a reply.World Maritime News Stafflast_img read more

Australian Open: Djokovic, Nadal, Williams Get Tricky Draws

first_imgMen’s champion Novak Djokovic will begin his quest for a record-extending eighth Australian Open title against Jan-Lennard Struff, while the man he beat in last year’s final, Rafa Nadal, will take the top seeding into a contest against Bolivian Hugo Dellien.Top seed and world number one Ash Barty’s bid to end the host nation’s long wait for a homegrown Australian Open champion will begin against Ukraine’s Lesia Tsurenko when the year’s first Grand Slam gets under way next week.Eighth seed Serena Williams, fresh from a title win in the warm-up tournament in Auckland begins her bid for an eighth Melbourne Park crown with a first-round tie against Russian Anastasia Potapova as she looks to finally match Margaret Court’s record of 24 Grand Slam titles.The draw, which took place in the evening in the arena named in honour of Australian Court, threw up an intriguing clash for Serena’s 39-year-old sister Venus, who will face fellow American Coco Gauff.Gauff, 15, exploded onto the tennis map at Wimbledon last year when, as a qualifier, she beat twice Australian Open champion Venus on her main draw Grand Slam debut.Japan’s Naomi Osaka has enjoyed an even more stratospheric rise over the last couple of seasons and won her second Grand Slam crown in Australia last year.The 22-year-old will start her title defence against Czech Marie Bouzkova, although she may not know it yet after vacating the stadium court before the draw was revealed.Another former champion, Maria Sharapova, needed a wild card to get into the tournament and could present quite a challenge for 19th seed Donna Vekic.Djokovic won a record seventh Melbourne Park crown last year to extend a still unbroken three-year dominance of the Grand Slam titles by the trio of the Serbian, Nadal and Roger Federer.With Djokovic and Nadal now in their 30s and Federer, who will open his quest for a 21st major title with a first-round match against Steve Johnson, heading towards his 40s, all eyes are on the young guns who might break their grip.“Daniil (Medvedev) is playing great tennis, he’s definitely in that small group of players who are getting closer to a Grand Slam title,” Djokovic said.“Alongside him is Dominic Thiem, who is knocking on the door, and (Stefanos) Tsitsipas, who won a big tournament at the (ATP) World Finals.“We are hoping this is not going to be the year they make the breakthrough, but it’s inevitable and that it makes it exciting.”Russian fourth seed Medvedev faces the toughest challenge of the trio in the first round against American Frances Tiafoe, who reached the Australian Open quarter-finals last year.Austrian Thiem, seeded fifth, plays France’s Adrian Mannarino, while Greek sixth seed Tsitsipas takes on Italian Salvatore Caruso.Nick Kyrgios looms as a tricky potential hurdle in Nadal and Thiem’s quarter of the draw but most Australian hopes of success will rest on the shoulders of Barty, who is out to end the 42-year wait since Chris O’Neill won the title at Kooyong in 1978.The Australian Open runs from 20 January to 2 February.Relatedlast_img read more

When it’s more than a game

first_imgBy sports editor Russell Bennett But for now, there are much more pressing issues than the bounce of a ball.AFL Outer East region general manager Aaron Bailey spoke about the reality facing the game at a grassroots level at the moment, but was quick to emphasise that the health and wellbeing of the people involved are priority number one.“This is a horrible time for a lot of organisations and businesses, and certainly we’re being affected,” he said.“But we’re in a position to come through the other side, which is pleasing.“We’ll be able to resume – whether that’s in 2020, or 2021 – and come back in a good place.“We’ve had to put some staff on leave without pay in the interim, but it’s really pleasing we could find them some other work in the short-term and our intention is to bring all our staff back.”Of course, there’s so much conjecture about just when community football and netball will return, and there can be no guarantees it will be in 2020.“Our aim is to try and get back to competition this year – we’re going to release some options around returning to play later in the year,” Bailey explained.“We’re in the fortunate position where we have three grounds without cricket pitches, which does give us the option – if we have to – of going well into October.“We’re open to anything, but the key thing for us is that if we do come back in 2020, we have to make sure it’s financially viable for our clubs.“What we won’t be doing is coming back if it puts our clubs under pressure. We’d prefer to hold our position and trade through this period into 2021, if the alternative was putting our clubs under pressure by making them come back.”At the moment, AFL Outer East is working through various options with its clubs on just what the competition structure might look like if players are to return to the footy field and netball court in 2020.“Certainly there’s a lot of work being done around salary caps and getting them down to a level that’s sustainable,” Bailey said.“May 31 gives us a little bit of time to achieve this, but what we’ll present to our clubs is that if we’re coming back at date ‘A’ or date ‘B’, this is what it’d cost. Does this work for you? Is this achievable or viable?“We don’t want them to be worse off for coming back this year. That’s the last thing we want. That’s front of mind in our thinking, and our planning, as we look to come back.”While competition play in 2020 is anything but guaranteed, AFL Outer East is exhausting all its options to see what’s possible.“For us, I think there’s a wellbeing aspect to it – if we can get people back involved in the footy and back following their clubs at the back end of this, I think we’ve got a responsibility to try, but it has to be done sensibly,” Bailey said.“It’ll have to be done in a way that’s viable for clubs, and actually supports them.“We think there’s still hope, but who knows in this current landscape.“What we’re doing right now is calling all our clubs to understand where they are. Our primary focus will be the clubs that need our support most, and when we come out of this we’re going to help the clubs there too – whether there’s competition this season or not.”Sporting clubs provide so much more than just an outlet to play footy or netball. They provide a genuine sense of belonging – connectivity to friends, family, and the wider community – and the mental health battles currently facing many local club members are also front of mind for Bailey.“One of our biggest concerns moving forward is the mental health and well-being aspect of all of this,” he said.“There’ll be club members with potential issues around employment and housing, and one of our key responsibilities here – before football or netball – is to make sure that the welfare of our communities and their people come first.“If we can get back to competition at some stage this year we think it’ll help with that, but at the moment we’ve just got to be there for our clubs.“Our key message at the moment is that we want people to focus on their families and their welfare – to take care of themselves, and their immediate friends and family. Football and netball will be there when they’re ready, and once we get the opportunity to come back we’ll do everything in our power to support our clubs and our communities. At the moment though, we just want everyone to be safe, well, and healthy.” At a time when each passing day brings with it far more questions than answers for everyday Aussies, AFL Outer East has moved to assure its clubs and people that football and netball will always be there for them when the Covid-19 pandemic has eased.last_img read more

How much more burden can our people bear?

first_imgDear Editor,The fragility of the Government failed local government policy, is being embarrassingly exposed by the elements. Many parts of Georgetown, Eccles-Ramsburg and several Neighbourhood Democratic Councils (NDC), are experiencing and have reported a significant accumulation of flood waters with the sprinkling rains. The reality is that the continued undemocratic parliamentary suppression and stifling of the elected councils in Local Government Areas (LGAs), will not camouflage the failures.The Communities Minister is talking up in the media, about his 2018 Budget, which provides $110 million for the functioning of the Local Government Commission (LGC). This is indeed shameful as the elusive Commission is still to get its footing, in contemplation of taking off functionally. The recent budget debates woefully exposed the amounts appropriated may be insufficient to pay the Commissioners at the salaries published in the Gazette, and certainly deficient to fund full operations. At the same time, the Commission’s members have been holding meetings at Parliament Building.It is of note that the new Property Value Assessments next year, is certainly a sneaky and clandestine operation of the Communities Minister. Minister Bulkan and the Finance Minister have spoken extensively regarding the A Partnership for National Unity/Alliance For Change’s (APNU/AFC) interest in ensuring property value is current, to improve LGAs rates and taxes. Concurrently, the former delays budgeted subventions for these areas; and without mentioning the impact these would have on Property Taxes payable to the Guyana Revenue Authority.How much more burden can our people bear and why is it that these people feel they have a right to treat citizens as idiots?It is very serious that the inability of the Commission to function properly will lead to more frustration and the numerous unsolved issues at the LGAs. Even before the approval of the LGC, several NDCs have complained bitterly about the role of some political stooges as administrative staff members to the councils that are being protected by the Minister for being disruptive.Recently, the overseer at the Soesdyke NDC bungled and one member of the Council was not invited to the annual election to elect the Chairman and Vice Chairman. As a result, there are serious problems and the elections held should be nullified. There are numerous issues to solve at the NDCs and the fact that the 2016 Local Government Elections was never completed is a matter of serious concern.Relevant to the completion of any elections it the fact that nothing much has come from the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) since President Granger imposition of his Government’s advisor as the new Chairman. Yet we have noticed that an APNU Commissioner of GECOM is now talking about a national integrated database. Is Commissioner Vincent Alexander the new mouthpiece of the institution?One may admit however, that every effort must be made to keep the list of registered voters current; and that integration with the Deaths and Births Division will be useful. It is however no panacea and his silence on the urgent need for a thorough house to house registration to produce an acceptable Register of Registrants could be construed with undercurrent motives.It is a fact that thousands of electors are not registered at the place where they are living as citizens continue to move housing wise and in search of jobs. As a result, the thousands of transfers that were never done must now be corrected with a genuine house to house registration to produce a proper voter list where these details can meaningfully represent the regional content.Importantly also, for many persons who have died, their information is often never properly documented at hospitals or reported to the Deaths and Births Division. The house to house approach is definitely an approach of absolute validation.In the context of databases, Commissioner Alexander must then tell this nation whether he is aware of, or why is it that the Information Technology Department at GECOM was not working since before the 2015 Regional and National Elections.The fact of the matter is that Guyanese must not be subjected to, nor must our people accept any form of rigged elections.Sincerely,Neil Kumarlast_img read more
