Just your average Millennial American-German Vermonter in New York learning the ways of wine
I’m not celebrating my birthday until the weekend but it’s always nice to have something the actual day of - thank you @James Forsyth for sharing this!! It’s delicious, the black currant really makes this taste 😍 chef’s kiss, as we millennials say. Almost dangerously good, it really tastes like the black currant juice I drink in Germany.
Also thank you to @Shea Bove @Matthew Burgess @Claire Troussieux for making today fun 🥳 — 2 months ago
It’s the end of summer, I’m sitting by the campfire at a lakeside campground (I wish), roasting marshmallows, and munching on a Hot Dog (why does Apple cap that?). My friends are telling horror stories about Caroline Calloway and Anna Sorokin but we drown our fears in this delicious and fruity wine (which I personally think has a smoky undertone but that may just be from the campfire). This is the dream this bottle has given me.
In truth I’m just at the office (privileged to be drinking wine, of course) and have just consumed a lot of coffee which may be throwing that “smoky undertone” off. Still delicious, recommend. — a month ago
Made with apples from my hometown orchard (for some of their ciders, not all as I understand it). A perfectly made semi-dry with just a bit of tartness. Great for non-cider drinkers. I know I’ve said this about other ciders but it really applies here (I tried it on both of my parents who don’t like anything sweet and received good/surprised reactions all around). Would love to see this in more restaurants - getting pretty tired of Angry Orchard and other sweet ciders. I also really appreciate the “Get Excidered” pun. — 3 months ago
A WARM HAPPY WORK ANNIVERSARY TO @Shea Bove !!!!!!
Thought I’d bring this bottle in to celebrate 😍 somehow it managed to survive being forgotten in my father’s office for years and still tastes zingy (but probably towards the end of its life).

somehow worse than when I previously had it (I think drinking it in the Vermont countryside with a view of Lake Champlain eases the pain). I don’t mind some of their wines but this is a stretch. Mix with a bubbly to lessen the strangeness and bring out more of the peach flavor. — 3 months ago
Blend of Riesling, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris. The Riesling is definitely dominant, and it’s very dry. Acidic and honestly has a delicious gummy bear finish which I said out loud at dinner with my parents who both looked at me like I’d sprouted another head 😭🤷🏻♀️ (and I’m talking German-made gummies of course - not the strangely synthetic American kind). Went fairly well with Choucroute Garnie - couldn’t imagine a red wine with such a meat-heavy dish. — 3 months ago
