In this episode of Wine and Dime, I chat with the owner of Donalies Financial Planning, LLC, Chuck Donalies. We talk about his path to becoming a financial planner, his love of exercise, his family, and of course, our favorite wines. We take time to talk about his recent trip to China with his oldest daughter and some of the impressions that they came away with. It truly was a fascinating conversation that I’m sure you will enjoy. So pop open a bottle of your favorite wine and enjoy the episode!

The Wines

Chuck’s Pick

Aslina Chardonnay.jpg

Aslina Wines - Chardonnay

A complex fruity chardonnay, creamy and full. Partial wooding gives this wine the edge and to show the beautiful tropical fruit and limy character.  Good acidity balancing the fruit and wood.12% of the wine was in barrels for 12 months while the rest was on the lees in the tank.

Amy’s Pick

Belhurst Pinot Grigio.jpg

Belhurst Estate - Pinot Grigio

Pinot Grigio is the Italian name for Pinot Gris, a white mutation of the Pinot family which shares its genetic fingerprint with Pinot Noir, Pinot Blanc et al. The term Pinot Grigio has become strongly associated with lighter wines produced in great quantities, particularly in northern Italy.

The refreshing Pinot Grigio style has enjoyed great success in various countries, most recently the United States, (where it is fondly nicknamed "Greej") and Australia. The most common descriptors of the style are "light", "crisp" and "dry". These characteristics are complemented by aroma notes citing lemon, green apple and blossoms.

Wine and Dime Episode 32 - A Discussion Around Student Loans with Travis Hornsby

In this Episode of Wine and Dime I speak with Travis Hornsby. Travis is CEO & Chief student loan advisor for https://www.studentloanplanner.com/. If you’ve listened to this podcast for any amount of time, you already know how passionate I am about the Student Debt crisis that we have in the United States. During my conversation with Travis we talk about that and the some of the options you may have to pay down that debt. So sit back, pop open a bottle of your favorite wine and enjoy the episode!

HOW STUDENT LOAN PLANNER GOT STARTED

I should introduce myself. I’m Travis Hornsby, and I’m the chief student loan planner around here.

I started Student Loan Planner in October 2016 after helping my wife and her friends figure out their six figure student loans.

I used to be a bond trader, so I took my excel heavy skill set and built models for how to save money paying back student debt.

When my wife and I tackled her debt from med school, there were not a lot of resources out there for professionals like her. Most of the sites that did exist just wanted us to refinance so they could earn a commission.

All of our team members either hold the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) or Certified Financial Planner™ (CFP®) designations.

We all have a passion for conquering debt's hold on your life and mental energy.

Belhurst Castle.jpg

Belhurst Castle 

is a former private residence on the shores of Seneca Lake in Geneva, New York. It was designed by architects Fuller & Wheeler and built between 1885 and 1889. The three-story, nine bay wide Romanesque Revival style mansion is constructed of Medina sandstone. It has a slate gable roof, one-story solarium, and four rectangular stone chimneys. It features projecting porches, bays, towers with conical and pyramidal roofs, eyebrow windows, and a porte cochere with Syrian arch.

Supplemented by modern facilities, Belhurst Castle has been adapted for hotel and retail uses. It holds a hotel with three choices of lodging (Vinifera Inn, Chambers in the Castle, and White Springs Manor); two ballrooms to host weddings, two restaurants (Edgar's Restaurant and Stonecutters); spa, and a winery.

Pinot Noir.jpg

Belhurst Pinot Noir

Intense blueberry and blackberry notes penetrate through this fruity, forward Pinot Noir. Hints of savory herbs add elegance to an otherwise one-dimensional palate that finishes with big, coarse tannins.

The Elf in the Oak

Casual atmosphere with an outstanding view from the deck! This hidden gem is quite small, with only a few tables inside, and a few on the deck. Get a table on the deck for an outstanding view. The lunch selections were standard fare with a foodie twist...very tasty! There's an ice cream stand outside as well for those with a sweet tooth and if you have any room left after the big lunch.

Wine and Dime Episode 29 - 13 and Life to Live with Donald Horack

In this episode of Wine and Dime, I had the pleasure of speaking a very astute 13 year old named Donald Horack.  In some ways, Donald isn't your 13 year old kid.  While he does enjoy many things a typical 13 year old enjoys, he also has interests that some adults don't have.  In this interview, our conversation takes us from the G7 summit to Ronald Reagan, to his favorite Root Beer!  (See below for that)  I had a great time talking to Donald and I think we can learn a lot about the generation from this young man.  Thank you for listening and enjoy the show!

The Wine!

Lakewood Logo.jpg

Lakewook vineyards History

In 1951, the Stamp family moved to Lakewood Farm, a run-down peach and apple orchard on the west side of Seneca Lake. The next spring, they started planting grapes. The original grapes were those favored by the large wineries and grape juice companies. In the mid-80’s the family diversified to add some new varieties, with the hope of someday using them to make their own wines.

In 1988, Monty and Beverly Stamp and their children pressed the grapes for their first vintage.

A Vision Realized

Lakewood Vineyards Winery opened to the public in June 1989 with 7 varieties of wine, made from estate-grown grapes from their 45 acres of vineyards.

Today, with 80 acres of vineyards and 3 Stamp family generations working together, the winery produces a diverse selection of wines. Their dedicated and talented team prides themselves on offering Finger Lakes wines of exceptional quality and value.

 
This diamond in the rough opens with aromas of cherry, plum and toast. The palate is soft with youthful tannins finishing warm with hints of stone fruit. Lakewood’s Pinot pairs beautifully with duck, wild game, salmon and other dishes that would ascend when matched with a beautifully crafted Pinot Noir. - Winery

OUR VALUES

Our goal is to be your financial coach, and enable you to focus on healing and finding joy in life again. We take a holistic approach, focusing on helping you navigate financial matters during the hardest times. Our seven values reflect our tailored approach.

 

The Wineries and Wine

John and Ann Martini moved to Anthony Road in 1973 at the urging of a friend that touted the joys of grape growing in the Finger Lakes. They loaded up 2 young children and left their home in Baltimore, where John worked for WR Grace to set up their farming life on the west side of Seneca Lake. Surprisingly neither Ann nor John had an agricultural background, unless you count John’s youthful summers at his grandparent’s farm in Melvin, Illinois. But together and with the help of family and friends they planted their first 5-acres, Foch, in the summer of 1973. The vineyard grew, to 30-acres, as did the Martini family, to 4 children, but it was quickly realized that an outside job was needed to support their endeavors. John joined the staff at the Cornell’s Experiment Station in Geneva and Ann took over the day to day operations and maintenance of both the household and the vineyard.

Devonian.png

Devonian Red

Sedimentary rock formed during the Devonian Period - a chapter of geological history in the Finger Lakes, is the foundation of the soils on which our grapes are grown. Year in and year out, our Devonian Red, a medium-bodied dry red, is quite delicious and a great value!

 

Caymus Cabernet

A dark, scarlet red color, with powerful aromas of sweet ripe cabernet grapes. Initial impressions are fantastically appealing, brooding to expansive textural sensations of finely grained cacao tannins. The whole of the wine is balanced, rich, expressive and impressively complex. The backbone of fine tannin and sweet ripeness is a carry-over from perfectly mature fruit.

Seneca Lake Wine Trail

 

New York State’s Largest and Most Active Wine Trail. 

In 1986, the Seneca Lake Wine Trail was formed in the heart of New York State’s Finger Lakes region to attract more visitors to experience its rich history, beauty, and production of world-class wines. Today, Seneca Lake Wine Trail is the largest and most active wine trail in New York State with a community of over 30 wineries, a distillery, several breweries and hard cider producers and a meadery.

Seneca Lake’s natural combination of deep water, at 632 feet it is the deepest of the Finger Lakes, and sloping hillsides provides the ideal microclimate for grape growing. Its unique geology and topography protect the growth of hardy native grapes and premium hybrids as well as more delicate varieties such as Riesling,Chardonnay, Cabernet Franc and Pinot Noir.

We have a lot to be proud of, here on the Seneca Lake Wine Trail. But, one of our finest characteristics is that we're at the heart of a greater Finger Lakes community. The Finger Lakes are an amazing place to visit and to live, with old world-charm, beautiful food, beautiful wine, beautiful people and a beautiful way of life.

Happy Money: The Science of Smarter Spending

by elizabeth Dunn

Two professors combine their fascinating and cutting-edge research in behavioral science to explain how money can buy happiness—if you follow five core principles of smart spending.

Most people recognize that they need professional advice on how to earn, save, and invest their money. When it comes to spending that money, most people just follow their intuitions. But scientific research shows that those intuitions are often wrong.

Happy Money offers a tour of research on the science of spending, explaining how you can get more happiness for your money. Authors Elizabeth Dunn and Michael Norton have outlined five principles—from choosing experiences over stuff to spending money on others—to guide not only individuals looking for financial security, but also companies seeking to create happier employees and provide “happier products” to their customers. Dunn and Norton show how companies from Google to Pepsi to Charmin have put these ideas into action.

Along the way, Dunn and Norton explore fascinating research that reveals that luxury cars often provide no more pleasure than economy models, that commercials can actually enhance the enjoyment of watching television, and that residents of many cities frequently miss out on inexpensive pleasures in their hometowns. By the end of this “lively and engaging book” (Dan Gilbert, author of Stumbling on Happiness), you’ll be asking yourself one simple question every time you reach for your wallet: Am I getting the biggest happiness bang for my buck?

Honor Your Health: How to Use Holistic Healing to Create a Life of Clarity, Comfort, and Connection

Are today's doctors getting paid to heal us or to harm us?
You spend a ton of your hard-earned money to be told what to do by medical professionals who, in many cases, do not support your values and instincts. You're told that if you follow the rules, you'll feel better ... but why don't you feel better?
It's been said "The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and expecting different results."
Maybe it's time to find a new way--time to take back control and become a full partner in managing your health.
Author Karen Creamer understands. She suffered from health issues, but she found a powerful process to restore and maintain her health. Today she helps other people do the same.
Karen speaks with authority and compassion about holistic healing methods because she has been the beneficiary of them.

In Honor Your Health, you will
- Learn about a variety of holistic therapies so that you can explore options that may better align with your ideas of health and wellness
- Identify ways you can begin using holistic healing immediately for little or no cost
- Develop your own "self-care plan" to help navigate transitions in life
Create a life of clarity, comfort, and connection today!

michele-chiarlo-nivole-moscato-dasti-2012.jpg

Michele Chiarlo’s extensive vineyards stretch over more than 272 acres of Piedmont, including the hills surrounding Canelli, which offer an ideal microclimate for growing Moscato. Grapes are hand harvested from select vineyards with southern exposure and placed in pneumatic presses, followed by a slow fermentation using natural yeasts to a low level of alcohol. Unfermented Moscato grape must is then added to fine tune the sugar levels. Finally, the wine is immediately bottled in order to preserve the characteristically aromatic, sweet fruit fragrance of the Moscato Bianco grape. The result is a wine with such a delicate finesse that Michele Chiarlo named it Nivole after the Piedmontese word for clouds.

CABERNET FRANC

Cabernet Franc, one of the three pillars of the classic Bordeaux blend, has proven itself as a solid producer in the Finger Lakes wine region of New York.  A lot of wineries prefer this as their staple red vinifera due to the vines shorter ripening period and cold tolerance.  The key to making a fine Cab Franc starts in the vineyard.  Pick too early and the wine will have an unsavory green bell pepper characteristic; pick to late and the fruit will be unsound leaving the winemaker rushing to stabilize the wine from spoilage.  

Bully Hill makes a downright tasty Cab Franc with the grapes being sourced from Seneca Lake.  The current 2013 vintage was fermented in Redwood open top fermenters for maximum tannin and color extraction.  Once finished and pressed off, we fill up oak casks down in the cellar to bring this fine wine to fruition.   We do small lot production of 500 cases a year and thanks to our happy herd of customers this wine sells out annually!

The Wines

Nebbiolo Wines - Wines made from Nebbiolo are characterized by their ample amounts of acidity and tannin. Most examples are wines built for aging and some of the highest quality vintages need significant age (at least a decade or more) before they are palatable to many wine drinkers and can continue to improve in the bottle for upward of 30 years. As Nebbiolo ages, the bouquet becomes more complex and appealing with aromas of tar and roses being the two most common notes. Other aromas associated with Nebbiolo include dried fruit, damsons, leather, licorice, mulberries, spice as well dried and fresh herbs. While Barolo & Barbaresco tend to be the heaviest and most in need of aging, wines made in the modernist style are becoming more approachable at a young age. Lighter styles from Carema, Langhe and Gattinara tend to be ready drink within a few years of vintage. Nebbiolo from California and Australia will vary from producer and quality of vineyard.

Mexican Wine - La Santa comes from centenarian, own-rooted Rosa del Peru (Moscatel Negro) vines grown at 2,400 ft elevation on sandy loam and granite soils in Tecate. The grapes were hand-harvested, de-stemmed, and fermented without temperature control in 450 liter concrete tinajas with 45 days of macerationThe wine was then raised for 3 months in ½ stainless steel vats and ½ older barrels. A lively and vertical vin de soif, La Santa is almost rosé colored in the glass, delicately floral, with red and dark fruits and juicy acidity. A lovely red wine to serve chilled with charcuterie and cheeses.

Wine and Dime Special Edition - New York 23rd Candidate, Tracy Mitrano

In this special edition of Wine and Dime, I had the opportunity to speak with New York 23rd district candidate for Congress, Tracy Mitrano.  We talked about financial issues, such as student load debt and medical expenses.  Tracy shared with us her concern about these topics, and her plans to help New Yorkers in the 23rd District.  And this wouldn't be "Wine and Dime" if we didn't talk about or favorite wines and the foods that we like paired with them... so we did that too.  

It was a pleasure to speak with Tracy on a variety of topics and get a little insight on a few topics she is passionate about.  As with any election, I like to look at all the candidates and decide who is a right fit for me and my family.  I encourage everybody to take a look at all the candidates and decide on your own.  When people ask me my political affiliation I often respond with, "I'm not a Democrat... I'm not a Republican... I'm an American"

Anthony Road

John and Ann Martini moved to Anthony Road in 1973 at the urging of a friend that touted the joys of grape growing in the Finger Lakes. They loaded up 2 young children and left their home in Baltimore, where John worked for WR Grace to set up their farming life on the west side of Seneca Lake. Surprisingly neither Ann nor John had an agricultural background, unless you count John’s youthful summers at his grandparent’s farm in Melvin, Illinois. But together and with the help of family and friends they planted their first 5-acres, Foch, in the summer of 1973. The vineyard grew, to 30-acres, as did the Martini family, to 4 children, but it was quickly realized that an outside job was needed to support their endeavors. John joined the staff at the Cornell’s Experiment Station in Geneva and Ann took over the day to day operations and maintenance of both the household and the vineyard.

Chianti Classico

What Makes it Chianti?

Chianti Classico is a DOCG wine and shows unique peculiarities and characteristics. Simply said, it is not enough to be produced in within the Chianti region to be called a "Classico". In fact Classico wine has to respect specific rules. Its blend is 80% of Sangiovese, the red grape typical of this area, 20% of other grapes which include native grapes such as Canaiolo and Colorino, as well as other international varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

Its characteristics are a limpid ruby red color, floral notes for its odor and a harmonious, dry and sapid flavor with a good level of tannin. The minimum alcohol level should be 12 degrees.

In this episode of Wine and Dime, I pulled an old interview out of the archive.  I sat down with Jeff Ryan of The Ryan Agency, to chat about Insurance and the important roll it plays in our financial lives.  Jeff is the owner of The Ryan Agency located in Hornell NY, with offices also in Jasper and Wellsville, NY.  

The Ryan Agency is an Independent Insurance Agency that represents YOU. We don’t offer a product from just one insurance company. Rather we provide insurance programs from many top insurance companies and tailor an insurance package that fits your needs and budget. For Insurance Protection You Can Rely On, it’s The Ryan Agency.

You notice the Owl on the label?  This pen and ink was concocted by Walter S. himself, humorously illustrating his inability to use his last name during Bully Hill’s lawsuits with Coca-Cola.  Walter S. Whoooooo, do you know Whooo? I know Whoooo!  This wine truly is a hoot.
