From across the pond

Just a quick hello from sunny England, where Kathy and I are visiting at the moment. Unfortunately wine has taken a back seat to lagers and ciders and hence no real insight and input into the world of wine. If you count plum, blueberry and elderberry as wine then we have a lot to talk about.

Instead we are visiting castles, touring dungeouns and the practices of the macabre, the English did go to town on their prisoners.

I am excited to be pouring our wine at the wedding of my brother on Saturday  [the reason for us being here] and may have something to say about that once that is done, it promises to be a smashing affair with lots of colors and saris, she is British, but of Indian decent. To say we are excited would be an understatement.

If nothing is posted about that, I promise to talk about German wines when we visit there on Sunday, and if not wine, then certainly beer.

Hoping the weather is cold and my vineyard has not broken just yet, no e mails to me, no news is good news, let’s hope it stays that way.

Regards from across the pond

    So how do those ciders compare in taste, viscosity, alcohol to the Virginia ciders we tasted a couple of weeks ago? Be sure to try Nyetimber Sparkling Wine (made there in the UK) – really nice.

    Safe Travels – cheers!

    Not to worry Stephen, the volunteer fire department put out the last of the flames and there was only partial damage from the flood, most of the Norton did survive the 25 inches of snow on Tuesday. Have fun ‘over there’.

    Perhaps a review of some clarets? 😉
