Visited German Wines Lately? No, Then We Have a Lot to Cover ($15)

Artist Showcase #3; The Amazing Art of Ursula Barton. Come Visit With Ursula Tonight!

With Ursula, we were talking at last week’s tasting (Eastern European Wines) about the incredible access we now have to wines from places just a few short years ago we never knew made wine! That’s certainly the case with the above mentioned tasting. Germany… that’s a whole other matter. Famous, world famous, wines have been made in Germany for centuries. In the not so distant past, the Germans used to send all of their sweeter wines to America, the home of Sugar Pops, Frosted Flakes, Cocoa Pebbles etc. Like they say, we Americans drink and eat sweet but talk dry.

The Germans themselves have always liked drier wines, so kept for themselves many of the wines in our flight. Well, it’s a way different world today! We are no longer of Germany or of The U.S., we are of the planet called Earth. Hopefully we don’t become one mind when it comes to food and wine. How boring would that be?!
