Wine Tasting in a Garage
The Rheingau region of Germany
has no shortage of wineries and sweet Rieslings, but this place, Garage Winery, and it's owner are little bit different. Anthony Hammond provides endless entertainment, as well as fascinating details about his wines and the winemaking process. His wines range from a sweet table Riesling, to a delicious Pinot Gris, to a very interesting brandy. Plus, his winery is in an old garage and it's beautiful. It felt like the perfect mix of Provence, Costa Rica, and America’s Southeast. Colored spot lights and a disco ball hang from the ceiling. The ultimate little nook for a summer’s eve party: doors thrown open, music playing, wine flowing, a cool breeze, fresh air, and summer love blooming. I am looking forward to returning for Hoffest in May.
