Summer Rosé,

The first day of summer is tomorrow, so keeping up with this weeks build up to summer theme I have created a poster of 10 rosés that you can drink now. None of them will break the bank and all of them are good choices for a hot summer afternoon. The list of wines is from Guyot’s rosé picks for 2013.

Prices range from 10 bucks to around 28. The rating scale from Guyot is pretty simple. 13-14/20 is a Good wine, 15-16/20 is a very good wine, 17-18/20 is excellent, anything above is outstanding.

In years past rosés have gotten a bad wrap, especially in the United States. These 10 will change any perception you have about the quality of rosé wines, and hopefully get you drinking rosés if you haven’t started already.

Monday Inspiration. Surfing Giants.

A couple of weeks ago there was a flurry of activity on the internet and TV news about a group of guys that had broken the record of surfing the largest waves in the world. The footage that I kept seeing was pretty much straight news footage of a guy shooting down the face of a wave that was around 10 stories tall.

The video below is quite different. This short film features some amazing footage of a group surfing monster waves off the coast of Portugal. What these guys are doing is insanely great, but the film is what I am digging. Great shooting and editing went into the final piece, and it does a magnificent job of really showing you just how large and powerful the waves these guys surf are. The Band Originale film features surfers Othmane Choufani, Jérôme Sahyoun and Axi Muniain, and was shot on January 28th at Nazare, Portugal.
