  • "Beginning of the week, trying to come back to earth from all that great Alsace wine so opened this fairly tame offering of Vidal Blanc from Virginia."Now that's a dash of cold water after the riesling luxury of recent days. How many bottles did you bring/ship back? Read More

  • Yesterday was Kientzheim day. I looked into renting a car for a day trip, went to the Avis web site and saw some fairly high rates for some very small cars $50-$70 for one day. Decided that the price was a bit steep but clicked a bit further in the booking process. When I got near the last step the "extra" charges showed up - more than doubling ... Read More

  • I'm starting this thread in order to drop a few notes and pics of the wine related portions of our Alsace trip. We're here with two other couples and although we have consumed a fair amount only a small portion of this trip is centered on wine. The first problem we encountered was the lack of rental cars due to the railway workers strike. We hir... Read More

  • Well it's 4:30 pm here in Colmar, Alsace so we popped this Wolfberger Grand Cru Riesling with some local cheese and a fresh baquette.  Neat city, a slight bit touristy but  not as much as Strasbourg. Heading to Ribeauville tomorrow and then to Kientzheim Friday for wine tastings.Our apartment is the two floors with the blue windows, a five minut... Read More

  • Just a quick update on tonight's activities.  I managed to squeeze in a ride on my Harley Fatboy this afternoon, after spending time with Sandra's parents walking around a grocery store.  Bob (Sandra's father) had some fun trying on a St. Patrick's Day hat, and I got a picture of him.  We had the grand kids again starting at 6:30 PM, and just dr...

  • Red, it's context:  Pinot is supposed to deliver a certain kind of flavor, aroma, mouthfeel, and, for me, none of that is there with Meiomi.  I wouldn't bash it if I didn't try it.  (I didn't really bash it so much, either, just said it wasn't much like PN to me and wasn't very enjoyable.)  Big commercial wines:  Well, define that.  A lot of goo...

  • Great story, JD!VV, here's how it usually works, as people who have been over have observed:  I keep about 24-36 bottles of daily drinkers in a wine tower I bought at World Market a bunch of years ago.  It was built for 24 bottles but I tricked it out for another dozen, including fatter bottles. That's about a month's supply of mostly $10-20 stu... Read More

  • I'll be in Germany next week, and once I arrive I plan to drag my jet-lagged self to Alsace, France to tour a few wineries there (a couple hours from Frankfurt). BUT- I'm not really into white wines as much as reds, though I don't mind Gewurtzraminer and Dry Riesling.But I am thinking of taking a day off toward the end of the week. I can get pre... Read More

  • Bumping this thread instead of starting a new one since we are only planning on two days of tasting this time around. First stop this morning was an 11 am appointment with Todd Hamina of Biggio Hamina. Todd is a frequent poster on WineBerserkers and gets a lot of just deserved praise. Interesting wine making facility in that he shares the front ... Read More

  • Mark, they fell from use as the CA wine industry (and then elsewhere in the States) fell into lust with the form of branding wines by their varietal. Riesling was used initially more as a style, like Burgundy, Chablis, Champagne, etc. What earlier Englishpersons would've called 'Hock' (in the era of 'Claret' for Bordeaux).Plenty of Sylvaner grow...
