Grauburgunder grapes come from the Turner and Kräften Riede vineyards in Rust. They are gathered by hand and fermented spontaneously using their own yeast. They then mature for 12 months on the fine yeast in small 300-liter oak barrels, some of them new.
It is cold and frosty, but a good day for a winter walk along the reed belt. The icy wind blows in our faces. Now is the right moment to light a small bonfire and warm up our clammy hands by the flames. Or to snuggle up in a blanket and look into an imaginary fire. A glass of Grauburgunder – not too cold and served in a round-bodied glass – warms you up from the inside out.
A warm and comforting, thick and creamy risotto suits the colder season. The art of making a good risotto is to work leisurely. Prepared slowly, the fine flavors of the onions sweated in butter, the steaming white wine and the tangy parmesan are truly appetizing. Please don’t forget to set aside a glass of Grauburgunder for the cook!
Why do I tend to think of Russian literature whenever I open a bottle of Grauburgunder? A glance at the book shelf reveals a comedy: Der falsche Revisor (The Inspector General in English) – a genre picture from the Russian province in the 19th century. Come to think of it, I haven’t been to the theater in some time…
