Unfortunately, Adam came down with a cold that weekend. I didn’t want to cancel so I asked my friends who have a little one if they could join me. “One of us will go with you, not sure who…” I was pretty excited that the last minute invite worked out.
The walk to the shop was not very pleasant. Down pour with winds up to 25mph. The umbrella was useless. I was a wet mess by the time I walked into the shop.
There were a total of 8 persons tasting. Guess what we tasted first? Moonshine! Moonshine from Tennessee. This was the best Moonshine that I have ever had. It was so smooth and tasted like a dessert. The first one was cinnamon apple. I said first one, because we had two more Moonshine tastings. After the Moonshine we started with wine. 3 white wines and 4 red wines. During our tasting we were given a plate of prosciutto, salami and bread. The employee would talk in French about the wines and then he would talk to Colleen and I in English. One of the wines we tasted reminded me of a Zinfandel. Nobody at the tasting including the employee new what a Zinfandel was. When I got home Adam and I were talking about Zinfandel. After I did some research I think people around here might know Zinfandel as a Primativo. Zinfandel has an interesting background.
The wines at the tasting were delicious. The wines we tasted ranged from 6.95 euro to 10.00 euro a bottle. The Moonshine was 29.95 euro. We started at 2:00pm and didn’t leave until 4:45pm. That was a great way to spend a rainy Sunday afternoon. We are going back for a Scotch tasting at the end of the month.
