SEATTLE, Oct. 6, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Ackley Beverage Group announced today it has launched a new luxury wine brand called Landlines Estates.
The winery's inaugural release will include three Pinot Noirs and one Chardonnay crafted from Tidalstar Vineyard located in Oregon's Yamhill-Carlton AVA. Planted in 1999, the 30-acre vineyard boasts nutrient-rich maritime soils and is farmed using strict organic and biodynamic practices. Its elevation and east facing slope provide the first sunlight in the morning and cool winds at night, allowing for slow, deliberate grape growth.
"When we discovered Tidalstar Vineyard in 2016, we knew that its ideal terroir combined with the highest standards in sustainable farming would produce exceptional and unique Willamette Valley wines," said Rudy Marchesi, Head Viticulturist for Landlines Estates and Chairman of Demeter USA. "This first release of Landlines is a superb expression of what this very special vineyard can provide."
Ackley Beverage Group brought together a team of expert viticulturists, growers, and winemakers to show the full range of what this unique micro-site can produce. The thoughtful collaboration of wine producers offers decades of experience in biodynamic and organic viticulture and artful winemaking.
The inaugural Landlines Estates release is from the 2017 vintage and will be made available for the first time in December of this year. Each of the four wines reflect various expressions of the vineyard and are produced in extremely limited quantities. With the purchase of 12 bottles, three of each wine, individuals will join Landlines Estates' Founders Club and be guaranteed allocation of future vintages, along with other benefits. Due to the limited quantities produced, this initial allocation will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
The launch of Landlines Estates adds to Ackley Beverage Group's growing portfolio of wine brands. With professional and financial capital, they have helped Montinore Estate build upon their national notoriety and last year purchased 177 acres in Yamhill-Carlton to build a new state-of-the-art production facility, 100-acre vineyard, and multiple tasting rooms. The investment group is actively seeking acquisition opportunities to expand their winery partners in Washington and Oregon.
About Ackley Beverage Group
Ackley Beverage Group, a Seattle-based family investment company dedicated to supporting premium wine brands throughout the Northwest, brings financial and professional resources to partners in the wine industry. They are committed to the continuity and stewardship of a winery's unique legacy, while providing the necessary resources for partners to reach their greatest potential.

NEW YORK, Sept. 28, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- S3 Architecture revealed an innovative new creative residential collaboration in the high-end real estate market with British luxury car manufacturer Aston Martin. S3 Architecture has worked closely with Aston Martin Design to imagine and design an innovative residential compound in New York's Hudson Valley, Sylvan Rock.
Exclusively listed with Corcoran Country Living, Sylvan Rock is a modernist estate nestled in a magnificent 55-acre wooded plot, located just two hours from Manhattan. The compound will set new standards for a rural retreat, blending craft, health and wellness, multi-functional "pods" and sustainability with the true luxury of space, privacy, and self-contained living.
"The Sylvan Rock estate offers a reimagined modern lifestyle," says S3 Architecture partner Doug Maxwell. "At the core of the vision is a strong connection to nature, wellness, flexible use spaces and accommodation for extended stay guests." Reached via a winding 2000-foot driveway that makes its way through the contours, historic rock walls and ridges of the landscape, Sylvan Rock rises like the dramatic natural geological rock formation – its namesake.
"When designing, we always let the land speak first and respond to it," says S3 Architecture partner and Registered Architect Christopher Dierig. "The roofline mimics the jagged edges of the rock ledge reaching down into the earth, as if the home is born of and launching from the landscape. The resulting design blends our modernist aesthetic with the privacy and context of the rural location to create a unique luxury experience."
In collaboration with the Aston Martin Design team, Sylvan Rock is visually striking from 360 degrees. The exterior is defined by dramatic floor-to-ceiling glazing and blackened cedar façade with cantilevered owners' suite, set beneath a unique folded panel roof structure. The entrance from the lower level lair within the rock formation arrives into an automotive gallery garage, lounge, executive office suite – and alongside a sommelier's dream bespoke wine cellar, showcasing Aston Martin's signature cross-hatched lattice design. In total, the estate offers 8,430 square feet of accommodation.
"Sylvan Rock is a strong marriage of design sensibilities," says Cathal Loughnane, Head of Aston Martin Partnerships. "Creating a luxury residence with warm textures, bold forms and exceptional privacy is very aligned with Aston Martin's own vision. We also wanted the owner and their guests to experience the three-dimensional feel of the house in an organic way, just like you experience one of our cars – there is no single façade that dominates."
Sylvan Rock embodies top hospitality and the agrarian ethos of contemporary Hudson Valley. Three guest "pods" are designed as multi-functional spaces accommodating guests, remote office, home schooling or wellness. The architect designed tree house on property allows unparalleled connection with nature. The wellness pavilion features a spa and treatment rooms that can be serviced by a local spa with arrangements in place. A dedicated agricultural food garden, accessed via a separate service entrance, can supply both the owner and regional farm markets. This integration allows for the luxury of true self-sufficient privacy.
The project is exclusively listed with and marketed by Corcoran Country Living, with a list price of $7.7 million. For more information and inquiries, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Dressed in a reflective platinum hue, the INFINITI QX60 Monograph* previews a more upscale and commanding design for the brand’s popular family-focused SUV.
“We commenced the design of the Monograph knowing this was an opportune time to start a discussion about where we are planning to take the QX60 in the future and more broadly, where we are heading as a brand with our design language’” said Alfonso Albaisa, senior vice president, Global Design, Nissan Motor Co. Ltd.
More than a design study or concept, a “Monograph” provides a tangible insight into how INFINITI plans to transform a future model. The QX60 Monograph previews some of the proportions and design elements that will adorn the brand’s future three-row SUV.
Reimagining the future QX60 SUV
Focused solely on the exterior, INFINITI designers imagined the QX60 Monograph as a sophisticated yet functional solution for a busy, modern family. The proportions include a wide stance, sleek greenhouse, horizontal shoulder line and muscular wheel arches. The combination of which creates a commanding posture and defined SUV persona.
“In crafting this Monograph, we wanted to change the tonality of the QX60 and transform the nameplate from a sculptural and architectural point of view. We raised the visual center of gravity, giving it a strong, straight shoulder line that carries through to the hood, with a higher, more prominent grille, and longer-looking cabin to deliver a sense of muscularity and a commanding presence” Albaisa said.
The current QX60 is popular with families and is known for offering spacious packaging and comfortable, dedicated three-row seating. The proportions of the QX60 Monograph illustrate INFINITI’s intention to maintain these strengths while transforming the model with a more aerodynamic, muscular silhouette.
Viewed from the side, the Monograph shows off its powerful horizontal hood, muscular fenders and long wheelbase. Paired with the gentle rake of the A-pillar and tapered, teardrop-like glasshouse, the result is a long sweeping, sophisticated profile.
Embossed with the INFINITI name, QX60 Monograph features large alloy wheels that fill the pronounced fenders and reinforce the performance-inspired aesthetic.
At the rear, the wide body and track, paired with horizontal window line give QX60 Monograph a sense of poise and stability.
The high shoulder line raises its visual center of gravity. The roof flows into a subtly integrated rear roof spoiler — also in gloss black — to further enhance the car’s aerodynamic appearance. Each of these measures create QX60 Monograph’s strong, stable stance.
