best-wine-movies-to-watch-during-self-isolation

What movies do you recommend?  What recipes are we preparing today?  What books are trending? What educational games do you develop with the little ones?  These are just some of the questions we ask ourselves daily in order to diversify the activities with which we want to fill the place of the hectic rhythm we had before.


Bemorepanda does not have the answer to all these questions, but proposes you to escape for 6 nights in the stories of the most beautiful movies with and about the world of wine.  The imaginary journey begins with the opening of the wine, suggested by the winery specialists for each scenario. Have you heard the sound of wine flowing in glasses? Then it's time to press PLAY.  Enjoy!


Sour Grapes

 An extraordinary chronicle of excess and untruth.  Not so much a story about wine, but an intriguing biography of a man, "Sour Grapes" is an incredible documentary that will leave you wondering if the story is fact or fiction.  The movie tells the shocking story of the wine counterfeiter Rudy Kurniawan, who generated the most shocking story of fraud in the wine industry.


Uncorked

 "This is a movie about fathers and sons", which presents the child who wants to achieve through his own strengths.  A young man, Elijah, feels caught between his dream of becoming a mastermind and his father's expectations of taking over the family restaurant.  "Uncorked" is a fun, exciting movie, a perfect introduction to the world of wine for all lovers of this field.


 You Will be My Son

 A drama in French, from the wine country, featuring Paul de Marseul, a prestigious wine producer and owner of a famous castle and vineyard in Saint-Emilion.  He does not want his son, Martin, to take over the family business. When Philippe, the son of his manager, appears at the vineyard, Paul has the chance to name him his successor, neglecting the wishes of his own son.


 Destination Wedding

 Keanu Reeves, wine and many tasty replicas.  Winona Rider and a wedding on a dream vineyard.  Love. Sarcasm. Venture. A movie that changes your perspective on romantic comedies.


 Wine Country 

 Lifelong friends meet on a wine-soaked birthday in the Napa Valley, but their carefully planned weekend turns out to be something other than what they expected.


 A good year

 Even if you are not a fan of romantic comedies, you have to watch this movie, perfect for lovers of the Provence region, but also for Russell Crowe fans.  Max (Russell) becomes the heir to his uncle's vineyard in Provence, where he had lived for 30 years. Thus begins the story, which shows the main character that "life is worth living."

spain-extends-quarantine-authorities-went-on-alert-after-the-number-of-cases-increased

The Spaniards were frightened and returned to harsh measures.  Spain decided on Wednesday (May 6th) to extend the state of emergency for another two weeks.  That was after it was given free to walks and physical activities.

 Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez called on the parliament, which approved the measure, after easing the restrictions, bringing the number of cases of illness to 3,121 on May 6.  This is after, after the end of April and the beginning of May, they had stabilized at 850 -1,200 new cases per day.  

Spain has registered 256,855 cases of COVID-19 disease and over 26,000 deaths.  The Sanchez government wants to gradually lift the measures of isolation at home and at the same time control the implementation of measures of social distancing and hygiene among the population.  


Home isolation was imposed on March 14 and the state of emergency was due to end on Saturday, May 9, but will be extended until May 24.  Although the opposition claimed that 60 days of state of emergency were illegal, it had to vote on the law for national security.

theres-a-test-that-tells-you-if-youre-immune-to-covid-19

Researchers at Oxford have made an important discovery: they have launched a test that can identify, in just 20 minutes, whether or not a person has antibodies to Covid-19.  Those who find out they are immune to coronavirus can return to work and resume their lives. The British government has already ordered 50 million tests that will be ready by June and says it is vital to saving the economy.


 A test costs 10 pounds and is done through a small sting that takes a drop of blood. It works on the principle of pregnancy test: if after 20 minutes two lines appear, it means that there are antibodies to Covid-19.  One line shows that the person is either vulnerable or the test has failed.


 The test was developed by researchers at Oxford in collaboration with a firm backed by the British government.  It wants to produce 1 million tests per week, by summer, and from next year to reach a production capacity of 50 million tests.  The plan is for people to take pictures of the test result and send them to a central unit, where they will be entered into a database.  Those who are immune to the virus will be able to return to work and thus the country's economy would have a chance.


 In the United Kingdom, Prime Minister Boris Johnson, recovered from a serious infection with the new coronavirus, resumes his activity on Monday. He was tested positive for the new coronavirus on March 26, he was hospitalized ten days later at St. John's Hospital from London, after which he was transferred the next day, April 6, to the intensive care unit, where he left after three days.

thats-what-freedom-looks-like-euphoria-in-wuhan-after-quarantine

Their relatives, friends, friends of their friends died.  In all families there is a tragic story: death, illness, poverty, bankruptcy.  After 11 weeks of severe quarantine, the "lock" was opened and Wuhan City, the "heart" of the pandemic that has plagued the world is trying to come back to life.


The city with 11 million inhabitants begins to fall asleep after more than two and a half months, it was like a ghost.  The new coronavirus started right here from an animal and bird market and spread uncontrolled across the globe. Today (April 8), a few days after China had no local transmission case, and just a day after the historic "no death of Covid-19" restrictions were lifted.  The quarantine imposed on January 23 ended at midnight Tuesday through Wednesday, and passengers began storming buses and stations, some wearing full-length suits.

But the over 80,000 cases and 3,300 deaths remain behind and the hope that one day the world will look exactly like before the coronavirus.  For now, it's just hope, because there's a long way to go.


Although some restrictions have been lifted by the authorities, many control measures remain in place.  The Chinese were warned not to travel unless absolutely necessary. Those who go to Beijing go through two rounds of tests, and in other provinces, those who come to Wuhan have to be quarantined for two weeks, the New York Times writes.


In addition, everyone is required to use a tracking application on their phone or tablet and to prove that they were not sick or did not come into contact with sick people of COVID-19.  The Chinese system records every place where people make payments and the network of hundreds of millions of surveillance video cameras is famous.

greece-has-opened-its-borders-without-a-mandatory-quarantine-only-for-eu-citizens

Greece has opened its borders and started receiving EU citizens without a mandatory quarantine after arrival starting Monday at 11:00 local time, Bulgarian police said.  The opening took place an hour earlier than initially announced, reports BTA from the Kulata crossing point between Bulgaria and Greece.


 The Greek border authorities distribute to persons entering Greece forms to be filled in with the full name of the person and the destination of the journey.  Coronavirus tests are performed randomly.  If the test is positive, the person will be quarantined for 14 days.


 A long line of vehicles waiting to cross the border formed early Monday morning, and by noon the queue was several kilometres long.  The cars waiting at Kulata came from Bulgaria, Romania, Germany and other European countries, according to BTA.

 Greece also reopened its two major airports, Athens and Thessaloniki, on Monday, while regional airports are set to reopen on July 1.


 As at the land borders, random tests for COVID-19 will be conducted at Athens and Thessaloniki airports by June 30.  "Those who will be tested will have to wait for the result - that is, one day - in a hotel of their choice.  If someone is tested positive, he will remain in quarantine for 14 days, "Greek government spokesman Stelios Petsas was quoted as saying in a press briefing on Monday.


 Greek authorities also reopened all museums in the country on Monday, after visitors were allowed to visit only a few archaeological sites in late May.  Visitors and leisure parks, hot springs, gyms and other places related to the tourist season have also been waiting for their visitors since Monday.
