Garganega is a variety of white Italian wine grape grown in the Veneto region of North East Italy in the provinces of Verona and Vicenza. It is Italy's 6th most planted white grape, it forms the basis of Venetian white wine Soave and is a major portion of the blend used to make Gambellara. DNA typing studies in 2003 and 2008 have confirmed that the Grecanico Dorato grape of Sicily is identical to Garganega. Before these studies, ampelographers believed the grapes to be related due to the similarities of clusters and leaf characteristics. In the Soave region, Garganega is the primary grape and can compose anywhere from 70 to 100% of the blend with Trebbiano and Chardonnay being its usual blending partners. In the Classico zone of Soave, where yields are most kept in check, the grape can produce a delicate wine with lemon and spicy notes. In addition to Soave, Garganega is widely grown in the Gambellara, Bianco di Custoza, Colli Berici and Colli Euganei DOCs. Outside of the Veneto, there are some plantings in the Friuli wine regions.
When grown in Sicily under the name Grecanico Dorato, the grapes ripens late and can produce a wine with tangy acidity. The Garganega vine has a tendency to ripen late and can be vigorous. In the fertile flatlands outside the Soave Classico zone, the grape can produce excessively high yields that lead to thin and neutral flavored wines; the acid levels in Garganega lends itself well to the production of sweet recioto wines that have the potential to improve with bottle age for a decade or more. An Italian study published in 2008 using DNA typing showed a close genetic relationship between Garganega on the one hand and several other Italian grape varieties on the other hand: Albana, Empibotte, Greco Bianco del Pollino, Malvasia di Candia a Sapore Semplice, Marzemina bianca, Montonico bianco and Trebbiano Toscano, it is possible. However, since the parents of Garganega have not been identified, the exact nature of the relationship in each case could not be conclusively established; the results were of particular interest, since these seven grape varieties are spread from north to south Italy, which indicates that Garganega is a key variety in the pedigree of white Italian grape varieties.
Garganega is known under the synonyms D'Oro, Dorana di Venetia, Garganega Comune, Garganega di Gambellara, Garganega Gentile, Garganega Grossa, Garganega Piramidale, Garganega Veronese, Gracanico Dorato, Grecanico, Grecanico Bianco, Grecanico Dorato, Grecanicu Biancu, Greccanico, Malvasia de Manresa, Oro, Ostesa and Recanicu.

Oro City, Colorado
Oro City, now a ghost town, was an early Colorado gold placer mining town located near Leadville in the California Gulch. Oro is the Spanish word for gold. Oro City was the site of one the single richest placer gold strikes in Colorado, with estimated gold production of 120,000 to 150,000 troy ounces, worth $2.5 to $3 million at the then-price of $20.67 per troy ounce. The site of Oro City is at 39°14′05″N 106°15′08″W, it is in California Gulch, about a mile northeast of Leadville in the Mosquito Range of Lake County, United States. Gold was discovered during the Pike's Peak Gold Rush; however the initial discovery, where California Gulch empties into the Arkansas River, was not rich enough to cause excitement. On 26 April 1860, Abe Lee made a rich discovery of placer gold on California Gulch six miles east of the Arkansas River, Oro City was founded at the new diggings. By July 1860, the town and surrounding area had a population of 10,000. An estimated $2 million in gold was taken out the first summer from California Gulch and nearby Iowa Gulch, but within a few years the richest part of the placers had been exhausted, the population of Oro City was several hundred.
Many claims were consolidated, worked by ground sluicing. A ditch was dug in 1877 to provide water for hydraulic mining, but the hydraulic mining was reported to be unsuccessful. Placer mining had always been hampered by a heavy brown sand; as early as 1874, one of the miners determined that the brown sand was the lead mineral cerussite, that the sand carried high values of silver. Some veins of gold ore had been found, but following the brown sand to its sources in the bedrock led to the discovery of large and rich silver deposits; the silver started a new and larger rush, Oro City filled with silver prospectors, but most people went instead to the new city of Leadville nearby. The 1890 census found the population of Oro to be 222. John J. Hoover, injured in a 65-foot fall in a mineshaft in Oro City in 1871.
'Oro is a god of the Polynesian pantheon. The veneration of Oro, although practiced in varying intensity among the islands, was a major cult of the Society Islands in the 17th and 18th centuries Tahiti. Tahaa and Raiatea. On Tahiti'Oro was the god of war; the secret society of Arioi was linked because of its rites. On the Marquesas Islands,'Oro bore the name Mahui. Four main gods were venerated on the Society Islands: Ta'aroa the god of the sea and fishing, god of the forest and handicrafts, Tu, the old god of war and Ro'o, god of agricultural products and the weather; these main gods were venerated on the other Polynesian islands. The colonists who settled as part of the Polynesian expansion spread their religion amongst the various islands. Over the centuries the continual movement and developments of the original society groups brought about local differences and adaptations of the cult within the Polynesian Triangle. On the island of Raiatea the priests elevated the god Ta'aroa from the role of sea god - an important function in a maritime society - to the god responsible for creating the world.
A possible explanation for this is that the ariki, the hereditary chiefs and members of the highest noble ranks on Raiatea, could trace their lineage directly to Ta'aroa. A further development of this cult was the veneration of Oro, the son of Ta'aroa and Hina tu a uta, to whom the marae Taputapuatea in the Opoa valley on Raiatea is dedicated. According to tradition, Taputapuatea is the mythical birthplace of Oro; the cult of Ta'aroa spread to the Cook Islands, the Tuamotu Archipelago and Mangareva. Large islands, such as New Zealand and Hawaii, remained unaffected by the cult and its developments and Ta'aroa retains his original function there as god of the sea. On many of the other islands of the south Pacific Oro did not have the same superior function as on Tahiti and Raiatea. Due to the growing influence of Taputapuatea - one can characterize it as a type of central pilgrimage site - Oro gained more political power and religious influence within the Polynesian pantheon. On the neighboring island of Tahiti the veneration of Oro grew in importance during the late proto-historical or early historical period and can be seen as a clear step from Polytheism to Monotheism.
This development was driven by the influential secret society of Arioi, who were of great religious and political importance. From within their ranks came the upper echelons of the nobility and the priesthood; the Arioi could trace the foundation of their order back to the god Oro himself. On Tahiti Oro was the god of war, who in times of peace became the god of the fine arts. Not only pigs but humans were sacrificed to him. During his third voyage in 1777 James Cook was witness to such a human sacrifice; the prisoner was held securely on a platform. According to legend Oro lived with his sisters Teouri and Oaaoa on Mount Pahia on the island of Bora Bora, he asked his sisters for help in finding a suitable wife and descended to earth on a rainbow in the guise of a warrior. His search of the various islands at first proved futile, which saddened his sisters. In the course of their journey home to Pahia the sisters arrived in the village of Vaitape, near Vai'otaha marae on Bora Bora. There they spotted a beautiful young woman bathing in a pool of water.
The sisters told Oro of their encounter and he decided to make Vairaumati his wife. Vairaumati found this strong warrior attractive; every morning Oro would descend to earth to meet Vairaumati and leave again in the evening to return to Pahia.'Oro's brothers'Oro-tetefa and Uru-tetefa, transformed themselves into a bunch of red feathers and a pregnant sow as wedding gifts. Vairumati gave birth to a son. Oro made Vairaumati into a goddess; the rainbow is a symbol in Hawaiian mythology though the cult of Oro is a late creation, coming about sometime after the settlement of the Hawaiian Archipelago by Polynesians from the Society Islands. In Hawaii the god Lono descended to earth on a rainbow; the motif of the marriage of a human woman with a god descended from the sky is recurrent in Polynesian mythology, as well as being evident in numerous other mythologies from various cultures. Polynesian gods manifest themselves in two different ways: as "Ata" and as "To'o". Ata was a natural object or artefact sought after by humans that would symbolise the incarnation of the gods.
For the god Oro this was as either: Oro-i-te-maro-tea:, the manifestation of Oro as a light yellow thrush. Oro-i-te-maro-ura:, the manifestation of Oro as a red-green A'a-bird. To'o was a man-made object, for example a figure made of wood or stone, that presented a figurative image of the god. On Tahiti the god Oro was presented in an effigy wrapped in coconut fibers with a mace-shaped wooden "soul" in the middle. Red and yellow feathers—the symbols of the god—were placed within the layers of coconut fiber; the To'o was stored and kept safe on the ceremonial platform and would be re-clothed in tapa fiber during a complicated ceremony. This ritual has to do with the local burial cult where the body would be swathed in tapa. Robert D. Craig. "Oro". Dictionary of Polynesian mythology. Greenwood Publishing Group, p. 193-194

Jesús Javier Hernández Silva, was a known under the ring name Oro, a Mexican luchador enmascarado, or masked professional wrestler. Hernández died in 1993 as a direct result of a wrestling match, he was a second generation wrestler, several of his brothers and cousins were wrestlers. His nephew works for the Mexican professional wrestling promotion Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre as Oro, Jr. as an homage to his uncle. Born in Guadalajara, Jalisco, he and his brother Esteban Hernández Silva wanted to become professional luchadores like their father, Esteban Hernandez, who wrestled as Calavera II, forming a tag team known as Los Hermanos Calavera with his brother Calavera I, his father was reluctant to the idea of his sons becoming professional wrestlers, but agreed to teach them some basic moves before sending them to the Empresa Mexicana de Lucha Libre -run gym at Arena Mexico. There they received further training from Diablo Velasco before they were allowed to make their in-ring debut; the two brothers made the professional wrestling debut on November 23, 1990.
Jesús Javier, at the age of 18, worked under the ring name Oro and his brother used the name Plata. The duo wore near-identical masks, the only difference being one had a gold pattern and the other had a silver pattern; the two were soon joined by a wrestler known as Platino to form a trio tag team known as Los Metalicos. The team was matched up against another trios team, a rudo trio known as Los Destructores, with whom they had a series of matches; the fans responded to the young team, supporting them and showing appreciation for the fact that Oro had an aerial wrestling style, unusual for the time and Plata and Platino were skilled high flying wrestlers. Oro's frequent and skilled execution of moves off the top rope helped usher in a style change in Lucha Libre as wrestlers started to incorporate more moves like planchas and topes, inspired by Oro's performances. Los Metalicos was given their first professional wrestling championship just over a year after their debut, defeating Los Destructores to win the Mexican National Tag Team Championship on December 4, 1991.
The following week a match between the two teams ended controversially and the championship was vacated. The following week Los Destructores regained the vacant title. Los Metalicos captured the Distrito Federal Trios Championship at some point in 1991, but lost the it to Los Guerreros del Futuro. Oro's popularity earned him an invitation to travel to Japan in 1992, to work for Gran Hamada's Universal Lucha Libre promotion, which showcases the Lucha Libre wrestling style in Japan, his skill and charisma made him an instant hit in Japan and upon his return Oro started to break away from the rest of Los Metalicos, being groomed for a top role in EMLL. He teamed with two of the biggest names in Lucha Libre, working with Mil Máscaras and Último Dragón; as Oro moved away from Los Metalicos EMLL replaced him with Bronce, a wrestling character patterned on Oro's image, but using bronze instead of gold. EMLL put Oro in a storyline feud with veteran wrestler Mano Negra. On May 23, 1993, Oro defeated Mano Negra to win the NWA World Middleweight Championship.
This was the only singles title Oro won during his career. Mano Negra regained the title three weeks on July 3. EMLL planned was to escalate the storyline, ending with the two wrestlers meeting in a Luchas de Apuestas where both wrestlers would wager their mask on the outcome. At the time however, Oro expressed a desire to spend more time with his family and travel less, wanting to retire no than 1994. On October 26, 1993, Oro teamed up with La Fiera and Brazo de Plata to face the team of Kahoz, Dr. Wagner, Jr. and Jaque Mate at Arena Coliseo in Mexico City. Before the match, while going over the plans for the match Oro said he wanted to take a "Kobashi bump" during the match, a reference to a head first backdrop driver which Kenta Kobashi took in a match in All Japan Pro Wrestling; that particular bump had a dramatic effect, as it looked like Kobashi had broken his neck and Oro wanted to use the shock effect to help build the drama for their match. During the match, Kahoz clotheslined Oro, who landed on his head as he had planned.
His opponent tried to pick him up. Oro was put on a stretcher at the start of the second fall while his brother screamed, "Don't fall asleep!", warning him to remain alert so that he would not lose consciousness. Oro died before being placed in a waiting ambulance, he was two months short of his 22nd birthday at the time of his death. Oro's family requested; the following day the news of Oro's death headlined every Lucha Libre publication in Mexico and the rival promotion Asistencia Asesoría y Administración paid a tribute to Oro during their show, something they had done for a worker of their rival promotion. In 1994 and 1995, close to the date of Oro's death, EMLL held a Copa de Oro tournament, a tag team tournament where the winners were presented a trophy by Oro II; the 1994 tournament winners were Apolo Dantés and El Dandy and the 1995 tournament was won by Chicago Express and Pierroth, Jr.. Each year, around the anniversary of Jesús Javier Hernández Silva's death the Lucha Libre community organizes a religious mass in memory of Jesús Hernández as well as other major
