I am doing a picture review of the big bottle wine event only. Cindy who invited me to join her has done a fantastic review which you can read here. Below is a photograph of Cindy, and the gardens of the Cellars Hohenhort Hotel. The venue was well suited to this event and there were only a few occasions where I felt there was not enough space for all of us.
these bottles represent just a few of the wines we tasted – I was impressed with most of them and I discovered a few new wine estates that we will visit this coming summer on our days off from work.
the next two photographs get a special mention! Notice my empty glass next to the champagne. The guy serving the champagne not only refused to give us a taste, he would not even speak to us. BAD FORM! I drink a lot of champagne, so you can all guess which one won’t be on my shopping list! The second photograph depicts Idiom wine, and their perfume. The perfume is made to match the notes of the wine and I loved it. I have a huge collection of essential oils and wish I could recreate the scent.
the last photograph collection is of the canapes we enjoyed. Taking center stage is the steak tartare which to my taste buds was the best taste of the day and I had more than one! The left corner is a sea urchin from which I sipped on a fish broth. The least favourite was the bottom right of fois gras mousse with vanilla. It was too sweet and nothing like the amazing fois gras I have tasted in France.
