The Travelling Vineyard and Modern Concepts in the Wine Market

Ask anyone who knows anything about wine and you will soon understand that choosing good wine over time is a subtle art that takes time to perfect. Professional wine connoisseurs take years or even decades to master the art of identifying good wine while the rest of us simply stick to the old adage that the older the wine is then the better it is likely to be as well.

The Wine Vineyard presents a new concept that is gradually changing how people from all walks of life view wine and how well they understand it. Started on 1st November 2010, the idea behind the formation of The Travelling Vineyard was to facilitate and enable regular people to host and participate in wine tasking events within their own neighborhood. The wine tasting events were generally open to all members of the public and were based on free participation. Although the Travelling Vineyard still remains a staunch supporter of such wine tasting events, the overall concept behind the company has evolved significantly over the years.

The new business model adopted by the company takes the concepts a step further and now enables people to make good money by hosting the wine tasting events. Members who sign up with the company are trained in everything to do with wine and wine accessories. Once they have mastered the art of wine making and wine tasting they are then absorbed as wine guides by the company. The wine guides are essential just a simple extension of the company’s sales force and they basically market the wines and wine accessories that compose the core of Travelling Vineyard’s inventory.

As a wine guide, there are several benefits that you stand to enjoy. For starters, most people enjoy tasting quality wine and hosting an event like that is always good for bonding and having fun. And then there is the cash incentive which can amount to a comfortable income for the right people.

Jet Blue To Start Flights to Cuba In July

American airline carrier Jet Blue has announced that it will be the first U.S. airline to have regular flights to Cuba. The flights will start in July and will fly out of various hubs supported by Jet Blue including Miami, New York and other cities to be named later.Jet Blue Set to Fly to Cuba

Jet Blue routes to Cuba will be the first flights from American soil since President Obama has lifted restrictions regarding trade and travel to Cuba. Restrictions have been in place since the Eisenhower administration and Cuba was close to being the epicenter of a Third World War, as event almost spiraled out of control during the Cuban Missile Crisis during the Kennedy Administration.

The opening travel route is the first step for open trade between the countries and eases the tensions between the countries. Cuba is a dominate economic power in the Caribbean and many see the move by the President as needed to reduce the influence of China and Russia which have established significant trade footholds in the Caribbean as well as Cuba.

Additional flights are expected to follow Jet Blue as other airlines work out the logistic of making aircraft and pilots available for the routes. Ivan Ong can’t wait until this really clears up. Travel to Cuba has been ongoing in recent years by various groups on strict conditions that the trips be for educational purposes only. Airlines see this as a benefit as there is an established customer base for the airlines to tap into too.
