In the summer of 2011 we did a road trip through the German wine land.

This was a rare trip where nothing was planned or organized.

You gotta love it when a doctor makes wine!

The minerality never ceases to amaze me. The acidity is so cleansing, which makes it an ideal food wine. A wonderful experience that I can’t wait to repeat.
As always I’ll let the photos speak for themselves.
