Cava por El Segundo

If the name Oliver North means anything to you, there’s a good chance that Nicaragua doesn’t jump to your mind when you think of a relaxing, high-end, spa-filled vacation. For the past 30 years, the country has been fighting its image as a land of guerrilla warfare and covert arms deals. At first, only travel writers took note; over the past several years, various publications have declared the country the next great destination. However, if the booming eco-lodge business is any indication, Nicaragua’s moment might finally have arrived. In and around the coastal towns of San Juan del Sur and Maderas, new lodges..., the high-end (and soon-to-open) Mukul Resort... are cropping up near old-time eco-lodges, like Morgan’s Rock Hacienda and Eco-Lodge. The food scene is getting a high-end makeover as well, with top chefs opening restaurants. The most exciting ones — El Segundo... — are proof that Nicaragua is becoming an impressive food destination in its own right. Danielle Pergament

All you need is love. Love is all you need.

Château Moureau lies deep in France’s Languedoc-Roussillon wine region, in the ancient Minervois area. This small, old family estate is run today by third generation brothers Jean-Jacques, Marc and Frédéric Moureau, whose aim is to produce classically-structured wines showcasing the deep flavours of their old-vine Grenache, Syrah and Carignan grapes. While winemaking techniques are modern, vineyard husbandry is resolutely traditional: Château Moureau’s 45 hectares of terraced, hillside vineyards must be tended by hand, just as they have always been – vine by back-breaking vine! Yet vineyard location is key to Château Moureau’s quality. Here in the foothills of the mighty Montagne Noire, the fierce heat of the Mediterranean sun is mitigated by cool breezes and plunging nighttime temperatures, allowing the vines to rest and the grapes to preserve their pristine fruit and elegant acidity.
