Under the German sun…

We toured fabulous Oberwesel with friends then joined Dave’s mom and other friends for dinner. The restaurant was an adorable, 7th generation, family owned restaurant and winery. We sat outside amidst the vineyards, drank cold, sparklingly delicious house-made Rieslings, and enjoyed great conversation! After dinner, the vintner, Wilhelm, offered us a tour of the wine cellar. He approached our table with icy glasses of Riesling and asked if we would join him!?!?? YES! We descended into the cellar where Wilhelm told us about his family’s wine making history and explained the different types of Riesling. He opened another bottle for tasting- it was amazing! We were all raving about how fresh, spicy, and fruity it was. After dinner we were given “party favors”! A red bag with two bottles of our favorite Riesling- a generous gift from Dave’s mom. I’m so grateful for her generosity and our new friends’ hospitality. Thank you for my favorite day in Germany!
