Gone are the days when you tasted sugary wines by the glass in a musty atmosphere and, with a bit of luck, got a dry slice of bread with herb butter.
The good old wine tasting experiences a new quality through the skillful combination with food. In doing so, we focus our full attention on the terroir around Cologne. The foothills, the Eifel or the Bergisches Land may not offer luxury products of worldwide renown, but a surprising abundance of delicious fruit and tasty vegetables, and all from the immediate vicinity. For this series of events, we are being supplied by the Bauernrunde.
Each month, we'll take a look at what's in season in the field, river and lake, or in the barn, and come up with a very regional pairing. What wine to pair with bush beans? Red wine or again Pinot Gris with trout?
In each case at 18.00 o'clock it goes off. But even when the moderated tasting is over after four hours, the glasses are still drunk empty.This content has been machine translated.
