Sunday's picture and a song - Red, red wine...
|It looks like it's going to be a good year for red wine!|
Small vineyard outside of Geneva
The grapes are plump and juicy. Soon they'll be harvested and villages will celebrate with festivals offering traditional food and vin nouveau, new wine that is only slightly fermented.
Even though Switzerland doesn't export much of their wine because the Swiss prefer to keep it for themselves, I love a crisp white wine from the vineyards around Vevey with fondue and other cheese dishes. My favorite pre-dinner drink during the summer is a glass of prosecco. But nothing beats a glass of good red wine like the one that I had last night.
Red or white? French, Italian, South African, Chilean, Australian or American - what's your favorite wine?
