Wine Festival -- The Good Stuff

1997 Domaines Schlumberger, Grand Cru Ketterle Pinot Gris -- Alsace. Elegant, complex weighty, very long finish. Stunning! This was one of the perks of having the Wine Festival in town last weekend, because the good stuff comes out of the cellars to impress the wine geeks in town. Late Saturday night at Aqua I enjoyed this wine with a local wine rep and a national wine importer. The owner and manager both enjoyed the sample I sent over. Can't wait to see what comes out of the cellar next year!

Hey Jens, thanks for checking out my blog site. Hopefully you can make it a regular stop. Looking forward to hearing about the wine festival. That is one thing I really do miss about Cincy - all the great wine shops and festivals.
Cannot say I miss the weather!
I'll be checking for your list!

The wine festival was great!
If you haven't been yet...check out the 17th Annual A Taste of Duveneck - the Cincinnati Art Museum's fundraiser for education programs. It's on Thursday, June 7, 6 p.m. You can sample signature dishes and international wines from Cincinnati's finest restaurants and wine distributors. This year, they've added a cool new outdoor Biergarten with premier beers and lagers. There's more on the website:
