Prowein 2016

I came to Düsseldorf to taste some wine, and that I did.  I didn’t realize I would be tasting wine from 6 of the 7 continents*.  That I would taste wine from Bulgaria (good), Moldova (ok), Kosovo (terrible, but please don’t tell them, I hear they have a temper).

We started out strong (it really could only go downhill from here) with some Port.  Yes that 50 year old port on the left did make into my face.

I thought it was sweet someone named a wine after my old schnauzer.

I learned here that there is such a thing as too much Amarone

Funny people at the convention.

I guess I liked this.  But then I generally do like this type of wine.

This guy is telling us  about the 40 year old Champagne we’re about to taste.
