Malbec Madness and #MalbecWorldDay 2016…on this week’s radio show

TUNE IN Thursday, April 14th, 2016

Episode: WL 04-13-2016

In our first segment we will look at Argentina as a wine producing country, look at the history, its roots and where it is today. We’ll also explore not only the success story of Malbec but also Argentina’s other wines, we’ll also learn more about its culture, from the Argentine gaucho, to the asado, to the Argentine Tango.

Joining us to start the conversation Monica Ralphs, the Founder of  her PR company WineSpeak, Monica has been working with the wines of Argentina for almost 10 years, she is the authority on everything Argentinean,

Listen to Monica Ralphs at 5:00 minutes in the show.

 

  We shift our focus next to one wine producer in particular. This winery is one of the oldest and most prestigious wine producers in Argentina and is quickly becoming one of the leading quality wine brands from the country, with Robert Parkers Wine Advocate awarding 90 points to their most recent Limited Edition Malbec.The winery is Pasqual Toso, and our guest Julian Orti, Export Director to tell all in our second segment.

Listen to Julian Orti at 20:00 minutes in the show.

And finally, so many are seduced by and drawn to this beautiful country. To close off the show we’ll welcome back, he’s a favorite returning guest of ours, Dr. Gary Glassman. Dr Glassman @DrGaryGlassman is an endodontist to be specific, but also a wine lover and proud co-owner of a vineyard located in heart of the “Tiera de Malbec” Lujan de Cuyo,
in Mendoza. The winery is Los Flaneurs and Gary will join us to talk about his journey to fulfilling a dream in wine and also give us a few tips on wine and oral health, and it’s good news, so be sure to stay tuned.

Listen to Dr. Gary Glassman at 35:00 minutes in the show.

Passion turns to Purpose, Celebrity Endodontist turned winemaker!

And as a side note… This year, I Susanne  got to complete one of my “bucket list” dreams and learned the Argentine Tango. I performed it for charity raising almost $13,000 for the Community Foundation of Mississauga in their Dancing With Mississauga Stars event. What a thrill!!! Here is my Argentine Tango! Enjoy! Watch Susanne’s Tango here.

One of the most talked about local events, the third annual Dancing with Mississauga Stars gala was held on Friday November 6, 2015 at the Mississauga Convention Centre.

Dancing With Mississauga Stars 2015

We raised over $125,000 for The Community Foundation of Mississauga.

This year five stars have accepted the challenge to raise essential funds for the Foundation while learning one ballroom dance. They performed their chosen dance in front of the audience on gala night. These brave stars were Tim Beckett, Fire Chief of Mississauga; Lauren Bernardi, Principal, Bernardi Human Resource Law; Dorothy Guerra, Owner Birth Yoga Studio, Susanne Seelig-Mense, Partner The Wine Ladies; and Cliff Silveira, Director of Operations, Mississauga Convention Centre.

All Community Foundations share three roles. We;

  • bring donors to the table as community builders, and help them formulate and realize their philanthropic goals, matching their interests and concerns with community needs and organizations, and finding innovative and responsible ways to give their investments lasting impact.
  • take the broadest view of what a community is and what it needs to succeed. This is why our grants support everything from shelter, sustenance and care for those most in need, to recreation, the arts, and the environment.
  • take the long-term view for our communities: we identify long-term needs and opportunities and invest in sustainable solutions, helping our communities become resilient, resourceful, and ready for the future they want.

Community foundations work with donors to create their charitable legacy. No matter the gift size, our donors know they are helping to create a permanent endowment for the community, with the investment earnings distributed to the broadest range of charitable initiatives in the community.

A Community Foundation is not the object of a donor’s philanthropy but rather seeks to provide donors with the information, resources and tools to accomplish their charitable goals.

Each Community Foundation is autonomous and governed by a Board of Directors made up of community-minded leadership. Yet, they are linked and supported by Community Foundations of Canada’s strong national network; www.communityfoundations.ca.
