Happy New Year

I wish you a happy and healthy 2011! May all your wishes come true and your choice of wines be good! Hopefully, you had wonderful holidays and got time to relax and 'just be'.


We celebrated Christmas at my parents-in-law's summer house in Sweden. About 2 hours west of Stockholm, this unbelievable cozy place lies in the middle of (almost) nowhere. Lots of fire wood was being burnt up to keep everyone warm. The temperatures went as low as -26 C one night... We sure did get into the winter mood!

This is how we keep our wines cool
My mother-in-law is an excellent cook and we enjoyed lots of good meals and tons of baked goodies. (Time to start working out!) Everyone in the family (over 18) likes to have a glass of wine, but no-one really fancies wine. So all wines we had during the days, were moderate in price and style. It seems, the favorite was Mugler's Riesling Kabinett trocken, Ruppertsberger Linsenbusch. Everyone liked the fruity style, with it's good acidity and some residual sugar. It was agreed upon that this is a good match for many different dishes.
