The Best Kind of Neighbor

That's our building with the pale green paint and white shutters, and here's the Karcher Winery!
David has been sick with a cold and the trains are still on strike, so we've been sticking close to home.  But, oh, how sweet home is when there's a winery right across the street!

Nestled in a fertile valley between the Vosges Mountains and the Rhine River, the Alsace wine region is the third most famous in France.  The microclimate evidently produces some remarkable wines in addition to all the flowers!
 Hollyhocks grace the entry to the Karcher Winery and a little table invites imbibing. 
Thanks to our extraordinary pet sitter, Lorraine, retired airline pilot and oenophile (She has training beyond that of a sommelier.  Talk about a Renaissance woman!), who gave us suggestions before we left Tucson, we knew which wines to taste. 

And it's time to get that bottle of Riesling out of the frig.  It should be nicely chilled by now!
