Some glimpses into the wine probe. When we reached Kallstadt it was dead,
there were 5 stalls of sweets, toys and dart and shooting games and a children's ferry wheel in the middle. There was a hall with a white and black banner called "Probe der 100 weine" and there were two security guards outside. Disappointed at the lack of fan fair, we decided to walk further into the vineyards when Vidya and I thought it would be a shame to walk away even without looking in. So we went in to be accousted by two security guards.
"Ausweis bitte". (Identity card, please)
"Oh.. I do not have it - fuhrerschein gehts?" (Will the driving license do?)
They flipped mine to the date of birth and smiled. They looked at Vidya's and the smile turned broader.
We walked in. 12 Euros entry fee but unlimited tasting for 100 wines. Some special ones will cost 1.5 Euros extra (for the Raritein) and the others 2.5 Euros (Eiswein).
We went out to a crowd which was more interested in cake and coffee. We shrugged - let us try on our way back. After the cake and coffee we walked back here. While Parmanu, a non drinker found a colleague to talk to and then went on a long walk in the vineyards, we wine lovers spent our time sampling the different ones. Here are some pictures.
