my holiday twittering  

18:45 Skipped Washington virtual meetup and the brunch, but went on the wine tour. Discovered I like Reisling, but amn't too keen on Sauv Blanc. #

Heehee! Don't know if I've ever had it before. I think Sauv Blanc may be the reason I used to say I didn't like white wine.

I haven't really paid much attention to the taste of wine before, especially white. I only had white (and port) on the tour - I'm never touching red again. I think the tanins in it are one of my migraine triggers.

I do indeed! I don't read German, but I'll take your word for it :-)

Also, if you like, I'm game for that one. ;-)
Sounds good!

If you like Riesling, you will probably like Gerwerstraminer. It's very fruity, quite sweet.

One of the vineyards we visited did have a "Gerwerts" to sample and is was very much sweeter than the Reisling.

Did you try the desert wine there? (Torlesse, yes?) I had the port.

Like you I tried the port which was very nice but there is only so much you can carry. I had enough mental agony with 5 bottles in my case. After Newk's experience with a wine soaked green suit (?) I was sure hoping my indulgences would arrive intact.

I didn't buy any. Would have been tempted by some reisling, but travelling, plus not really drinking anyway, made me sensible.

I never did get to see that green suit. Unless it was the mankini, but I didn't notice any red wine on that.

As far as I know the green suit did not emerge from Newk's suitcase after its dowsing in wine. The ginormous green hat first appeared at the Wednesday night dinner.

Mankini? What mankini? WHo was brave enough to appear in it? Did I miss something and was it worth seeing?

(go back through some forgotten holiday mail)

A mankini was produced, but not worn. Thank goodness.

That was on offer at at least one of the wineries, but as I pretty much don't drink, I only tried one or two at each one, so didn't taste it. I think nuteile did though.
