    “Before wine, there was no life.”

    This quote from Markus Schneider shows just how big a role wine plays in his life. And it’s no wonder – after all, he grew up in Ellerstadt, a small Palatinate community with vineyard after vineyard and winery after winery. And yet Markus Schneider has created something very special here: the vineyard he set up in 1994 with just one hectare of land has become an international brand. Today, he cultivates around 92 hectares of vines, and his wines appear on the lists of top international restaurants and hotels and the world’s best airlines and cruise ship fleets. The breadth of his wine-growing region offers Markus Schneider and his team some key advantages: when summer sends temperatures in the valley soaring to up to 38 °C and drives the grapes to physiological maturity, the early shade, cool ground and winds in the Haardtrand area keep the process moving nice and slowly. Schneider places particular value on a biological approach – no herbicides, insecticides or artificial fertilisers, but careful under-vine cultivation, purely organic fertilisers and sowing various grasses and herbs to strengthen the vineyard.

    He believes that to start life in a small wine-growing village and make it in the big wide world, you need to be hard-working and ambitious, have a strong vision and a good dose of Palatinate emotionality. The story of Weingut Markus Schneider shows that we live in the “land of ideas”. Courage, hard work and determination are indeed rewarded.

    The very survival and evolution of classical music within a fast-paced, cosmopolitan environment such as New York requires a dynamic balance of novelty, tradition, and hard work. It was with this vision in mind that the Salomé Chamber Orchestra, New York City’s new conductor-less string ensemble, was founded in September 2009 by the Carpenter siblings (violinists Sean and Lauren and violist David). As a 501c3 organization and one of the preeminent orchestras in the U.S., Salomé collaborates with other non-profit organizations in raising awareness for their philanthropy and broadening the audience of classical music. To date, the orchestra has performed at venues around Manhattan including Steinway Hall, Carnegie Hall, Barge Music, Christie’s, MILK Studios, and the MET Museum; on NPR's Performance Today; and on National Television. Salomé has collaborated with leading soloists, including guitarist Sharon Isbin and violist David Aaron Carpenter, with 2012-2013 performances slated with Alan Gilbert, Christoph Eschenbach, Joshua Bell, Philippe Quint, Daniel Hope, Karen Gomyo, Helene Grimaud, and Rufus Wainwright. Also, Salomé has partnered with notable non-profit organizations from around the world including The Trevor Project, FEED, Camfed, and The Somaly Mam Foundation. Salomé is based in Manhattan and consists of top-ranking graduates from The Curtis Institute of Music, The Julliard School, Manhattan School of Music, Princeton University, and Yale University.

    Golf - Exclusive golfing in South Africa

    Fri 19.01 Walvis Bay – Rossmund Golf Club
    Situated on the edge of the Namib Desert, this 18-hole course is a bizarre blend of desert landscape and golf course. The springbok and oryx are just as thrilled, and often head to the fairways for lunch. Nevertheless, the course is in very good condition, although the greens are not easy to read.

    Wed 24.01 Port Elizabeth – Humewood Golf Club
    Since 1929, the dunes of Algoa Bay have been home to a challenging links course layout. This 18-hole course played a significant role in establishing South Africa’s golfing tradition and has hosted many international tournaments.

    Fri 26.01 Durban – Durban Country Club
    Built in 1922, this course is embedded in the dunes directly by the beach of the Indian Ocean. The long, undulating fairways stretch out in a dreamlike manner through the once sandy landscape, which constantly offers view of the Durban skyline. This course has hosted the South African Open on several occasions.

    Sun 28.01 Mossel Bay – Pinnacle Point Golf Club
    Situated directly by the rugged cliffs of Mossel Bay, this championship course is a unique natural experience. Playing on this course, which opened in 2006, is like playing in a world of three colours: green terrain beneath your feet, light blue sky above and dark blue sea in the background. The wide fairways will suit golfers of all levels. And it is worth packing your camera along with your golf balls!
