Tasting Tuscan Wine – Part 2


Another 2 Tuscan vineyards worth mentioning: Azienda Agricolo San Michele Unfortunately, we cannot find the address of this winery, but we remember that it was not far from San Vincenzo. Not an inviting tasting area (it was very cold), but beautiful red wines and a grappa to die for! A big white dog keeps you company while you taste, choose…

Going back via the German Moselle – Cosy times at Walter J. Oster


It’s not only because of the very good wines that Walter J. Oster has stolen our hearts. The personnel is very friendly and helpful, also in English. And as I have mentioned in an earlier post, they offer a lot more than wines. First of all, there is an enormous choice of strong alcoholic drinks: Liqueur based on fruit, such…
