I actually laughed out loud at 17.21 – let’s face it, Gary is a funny guy

    I love wines from Alsace – nice show.

    QOTD – espresso with dark chocolate

  • Nik_B

    Alsace is right on the border of Germany and France – it has changed 'ownership' between the countries a few times. Beautiful place to visit!

  • criana

    I've had German Reislings but have not tried one from Alsace yet. Will have to add it to the shopping list.

    Black current tea with dark chocolate with a hint of mint.

    Gary. I'm glad to hear that the Colts fans were good to you after the win. I love my fans here in Indy. It was good have you in our city. Hopefully you can make your way back in the future.

    It is great to have you back on after some time off. I really was good to have to show us some dry riesling wines.

    QOTD: My favorite food non-wine beverage probably has more to do with the location that I'm enjoying it rather than the pairing, but there is nothing like an “Old-Style” and a Chicago-style Hot Dog at Wrigley Field. I know that Old-Style is TERRIBLE, but that pairing is like nothing else in that atmosphere!!

    Hi Richard, where did you try this JRH Riesling?

    Thanks a landlord it! I acquired yet some insight. Life is so colorful, we should be able to live in, such as Korea and honor the planet. Human life is like rivers, slowly flowing, flowing rivers, flowing through the snow, flows through the prairie and ultimately into the sea, return to the embrace of nature, start a new reincarnation. Allow us to feel the meaning of life will come only to those you have those memories http://www.cheap-nikeshox.com/nike-shox-TL3.html

  • Sutcher

    I've had maybe 40 alsatian rieslings, actually drinking one right now. One of my favorite things to drink.

    QOTD: Root Beer Float and a Hot summers day

  • Emilydisstoncoleman

    good shirt, a little color always cheers me up. Good move.

    Can’t wait for tomorrow! It’s Friday and I’ll be opening the Leon Beyer with a good friend and some good food!

    QOTD: Coffee and chocolate cake

    Not by what you’re doing. Your leaving comments with your website. Make your signature a link to your site. That’s called subtle…People will click….Your comments scream of “I’m here leaving a little comment but I’m really here to dump my website.” That’s not how it got stated. Sorry. With that, I hope you do well.
