 Ribera del Duero is an important wine-producing area in Castilla y Leon, northern Spain. Its reputation is largely thanks to the high-quality of its red Tempranillo-based wines, the best examples of which are renowned throughout the world. The capital of Ribera del Duero is the historic town of Aranda de Duero, which boasts a series of antique underground cellars (bodegas) built to store wine. The interconnecting cellars reach a depth of 40ft (12m) in places. Despite a long history of winemaking, Ribera del Duero was not awarded DO status until 1982. A corresponding Consejo Regulador (wine-regulating authority) was then established to administer it. 

Ribera del Duero sits on the elevated northern plateau of the Iberian Peninsula at 2800ft (800m) above sea level. It is divided by the Duero River (as its name would suggest – Ribera del Duero means 'bank of the Duero'), which provides the local vineyards with a much-needed water supply.

The region's inland location, coupled with the sheltering effects of the nearby Sierra de la Demanda and Sierra de Guadarrama mountain ranges, creates an extreme climate in which hot and dry summers are followed by harsh winters. Temperatures can range from –0.4F to 104F (–18C to 40C) and winter and even spring frosts are a real threat here. In the growing season, the high daytime temperatures are combined with considerably cooler nights – a condition which assists in the optimum accumulation of aromas and other chemical compounds (phenolics) in the grapes.

Alternating layers of limestone, marl and chalk under silt and clay topsoil add complexity and character to Ribera del Duero wines.

The leading local producer is Bodegas Vega Sicilia, which took the wine world by storm with its 'Unico' wine. Tinto Pesquera is another renowned brand, created by the region's best-known winemaker, Alejandro Fernández. The success of Vega Sicilia and Pesquera quickly turned local producers away from bulk rosé and selling to co-operatives and focused their attentions on making quality reds. Other prominent producers include Dominio de Pingus and Emilio Moro.

Nowadays, Ribera del Duero is almost entirely devoted to red wine, with Tempranillo the most widely planted grape variety. It is known locally either as Tinto Fino or Tinta del Pais and produces wines which are deeply colored, with a firm tannin structure and complex aromas of mulberry and blackberry. Most of the top examples age gracefully for years. According to DO regulations, Tempranillo must make up a minimum of 75% of all vinos tintos (red wines). The balance is made up of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Malbec (varieties that were introduced by Vega Sicilia well over a century ago) or up to 5% of Albillo or Garnacha.

Garnacha is used for most rosé wines, and a few wineries employ small quantities of Bordeaux varieties in their red blends. Albillo is the only white grape grown in Ribera del Duero, producing wines for local consumption that don't qualify for the Ribera del Duero DO title, or in minor quantities as a softener for heavy reds.

Aroma Thyme has had a Wine Spectator Award-winning wine program since 2003.  It has been their mission to source independently produced wines from all over the world.
“I love wine” says Chef/Owner Marcus Guiliano. “I taste every single wine that I buy.  I want to make sure I know what we are representing.  I am constantly learning something new in the world of wine.

Chef Guiliano does not discriminate regions or varietals.  There is a strong focus on New York wines.  Everything from South Africa, France, Italy, France, Spain, Portugal, California, Austria, Germany, Australia and South America have a presence.  All prices ranges are represented.

Besides wine, Aroma Thyme has one of the best stocked bars period.  The craft beer menu spans over 250 independent craft beers from all over the world.  The list has many hard to find and aged verticals of beers. Plus there are over 300 independently produced spirits.  “The extensive bar selections shock everyone.  We take a lot of pride in hand picking our wines, beers and spirits,” exclaims Chef Guiliano.

John Wayne in “The Quiet Man” Kicks off 2015 Shadowland Film Series

ELLENVILLE, NY (March 8, 2015) – The Shadowland Theatre in Ellenville celebrates St. Patrick’s Day weekend with a screening of John Ford’s masterpiece “The Quiet Man.”

The 1952 comedy stars John Wayne, Maureen O’Hara and Victor McLaglen, and serves as the opening of the theatre’s 2015 Matinee at the Shadowland classic film series.

Photographed in Technicolor entirely on location in Ireland, “The Quiet Man” is a lyrical love story with a wonderful collection of characters played by Ford stalwarts such as Ward Bond, Mildred Natwick, Sean McClory, Francis Ford and Oscar-winning character actor Barry Fitzgerald. The brilliant musical score is by Victor Young.

Based on the 1933 Saturday Evening Post story by Maurice Walsh, “The Quiet Man” was written by Frank S. Nugent and tells the tale of an American boxer who returns to his birthplace in Ireland. There he meets and falls in love with Mary Kate Danaher. Unfortunately, standing in the way of their future is her elder brother, who refuses to bless their marriage and provide the customary dowry. The climax of the film is one of the great donnybrooks of screen history.

The March 14 Matinee at the Shadowland program (2 p.m.) will feature a full compliment of selected short subjects. Trailers will be shown for upcoming films in the series; there will be a Tex Avery cartoon classic “Symphony in Slang,” a 1952 review of the year’s events; and a Three Stooges comedy short “Scotched in Scotland.”

Matinee at the Shadowland, according to Brendan Burke, artistic director of the theatre, “gives audiences young and old a chance to experience what going to the movies during the golden age of cinema was all about.” The series will continue on Saturday, March 28 with “The Pearl of Death” starring Basil Rathbone as Sherlock Holmes and Nigel Bruce as Doctor Watson. Holmes and Watson match wits with a master criminal and cross the path of his brutal executioner.

On Saturday, April 11, Shadowland will present Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy in “Sons of the Desert,” the 1933 feature film that inspired a worldwide organization devoted to the two comedians. In the film, Stan and Ollie look for a way to circumvent their wives’ objections and attend a lodge convention in Chicago.

The series will conclude on Saturday, May 2, with a rare screening of the 1946 comic fantasy “Angel on My Shoulder” starring Paul Muni, Anne Baxter and Claude Rains. Muni plays a gangster who winds up in Hades, only to wind up being used as a tool of the Devil back on Earth. Claude Rains is delicious as the malicious Mephistopholes.

The “Matinee at The Shadowland” series is sponsored by local Ellenville-Wawarsing businesses Aroma Thyme Bistro, Bullseye Appraisals, Chelsea Rialto Studios, Collier & Berger, Gaby’s Cafe, Il Paradiso, Kalter, Kaplan & Zeiger, Matthews Pharmacy, The Publik House, Carl and Nancy Rosenstock and the Ellenville chapter of The Sons of the Desert.

Admission is only $10 for adults, $7 for children, and tickets are available at the Shadowland box office at 157 Canal Street, Ellenville, NY. For more information or to reserve seats, call 845-647-5511.
