My wife brought something valuable into the relationship: friends. But, not only good friends, but ones with a wine estate that has been in their families for centuries. They own some of the best sites along the Rhine, an area first cultivated by the Romans to supply soldiers with their 5 liter per diem. They have passed on most daily work to their children, but it remains a family operation.
Today, we spent another pleasant day in their company and enjoyed a few of their fine wines. It is one of our favorite journeys. Fortunately, it is not a long drive to reach the Rhine. We could even take a boat down the Main, but have never tried. That might come when gasoline runs out or becomes prohibitively expensive. We will still want to make the journey.
They export their wines to many countries, which makes them available at better outlets and restaurants. If you notice the name, you could do worse than to order a bottle. It goes without saying that many of their wines have won prizes, which is an achievement in a field with so much competition and one which depends upon finicky palettes.
My drinking pleasure dances along with alive or vibrant wines.purity of wine making,healthy maturity of grapes, freshness.These two qualities imply that the wines good well with drinking..
