Another wine tasting tour, this time from Bernkastel. The first shot shows the typical vineyards int his area, on very steep slopes. In this case, the vines were planted only 2-feet away, and not connected together with cables. They just grew up a center post. All hand harvested.
The wine tasting was phenomenal. Literally giant cellars filled with thousands of bottles of wines. Each wine had its own cage, and a sample bottle to pour from. Unlimited pours, DIY style. Susan made sprinted to the sweet Riesling cellar, and we spent about 45 minutes in there sampling. I'm fairly certain I had three full glasses of wine by 10:30am. It was a good day. We left with a bottle of our favorite sweet Riesling we will open today, to go with our Turkey.
