We’ll Fall for Pfalz, No Doubt!

The Crowning of the German Wine Queen, who could miss that?  We won’t.  ‘Cause we’ll celebrate the end of the growing season with vintners and locals at the Grape Harvest Festival in Neustadt, Germany.  Think mugs of wine and local food specialties and parades and…  Yeah, Day 3 of our upcoming Food & Wine tour will be a doozy.

In fact, we’re spending two nights in the Pfalz, Germany’s second-largest wine growing region – and home to our partners at Vines to Wine Academy!  Annemarie has again worked her magic, and our group will visit another of her family’s vineyards for picking and cellar work.  We’ll also whip up a gourmet meal with a cooking class at one of the area’s finest restaurants, co-hosted by Chef Nancy of Taste and Savor.  AND we’ll sample the goods at a gourmet vinegar producer.  Whew!

Coming Up: Colmar!

Colmar, Alsace

Colmar, Alsace, is also nicknamed “Little Venice.”

We’re getting too excited about Vino Hound’s first international food & wine tour, Germany/Alsace! Day 1 is the impossibly quaint town of Colmar in Alsace, France – the “capital of Alsatian wine.”  With its impeccably preserved old town and notable architecture, Colmar is a feast for the eyes – and the stomach.  Alsace has been traded between France and Germany seven times, so its food and wine traditions are a delicious blend of both.  With our partners, Vines to Wine Academy and Taste and Savor, we’ll hit the cobblestone streets for a walking tour before settling into a farm-to-table feast  – with wine pairings, of course – prepared by a local husband/wife chef team focused on modern renditions of Alsatian favorites.  Our guests should look forward to Alsatian Cremant, Riesling and Pinot Noir with our first dinner – a delightful start to the week!
