  • Bornheimer Trappenberg Silvaner White Grape Wine 2009


    I received this bottle as a gift from a friend. Tall blue & contoured with an abv of 10% The smell is highly misleading. After sniffing the bottle once opened I thought I wouldn't enjoy it but I was pleasantly surprised. There is nothing overbearing about this sweet little number. The full flavor of the late harvest really comes through nicely w... Read More

  • Blue Nun Qualitätswein Premier 2006


    Unfortunately, this wine often gets a bad rating because people are too embarrassed to admit they like it. It's just not sophisticated to say you like this wine. Well I think this wine tastes great and it goes well with poultry or fish. I've tasted Liebrraumilch wines that don't even compare at triple the price. Just get over yourself and tr... Read More

  • Now and Zen Silvaner Blend Alsace Aoc Alsace White 2008


    We were quite pleasantly surprised by this blend of 4 white wines. Having a spicy pork vindaloo, we knew we would need a cooling wine to have with it. This worked great! Not a great wine, but certainly tasty and cooling. Read More

  • Now and Zen Silvaner Blend Alsace Aoc Wasabi White 2006


    Soft with nice acidity. Had with some veggie sushi at Mio Sushi outside of Portland. I can definitely see this pairing well with something like spicy tuna. Decent value at $6 a glass. Read More

  • The Societys Vin Dalsace 2004


    This wasn't what I expected. I used it to make Greek Shrimp and I had to have it to taste. After the first glass it was not so bad but as far as cooking with it I was very disappointed. My better half enjoyed the the dish very much so I guess it is my opinion that I most likely would not venture to buy another bottle. Read More
