Last day on the beach for the summer of 2012. Fort Tilden, New York.
6:15 am Sunrise. Richmond, Massachusetts.
Enjoyed a relaxing Berkshire style picnic, with Frank Cornelissen's Susucaru Etna Rosato... Wine made the old fashioned way. This is a bad mother fucker with heaps of gunk and unfiltered delicious juice. Mineral, full bodied with Notes of sour cherry, rhubarb, kombucha and thick juicy tannins.
The red and white grapes going into this wine co-ferment for 45 days on the skins. The result is an incredible rose' if your into this style. I like the way K&L wine merchants write, "This is the kind of wine that if you have to ask about you wont like it and shouldnt buy it, it's really different."
Staying in the Berkshires a few days before heading to Milano, and then on the Wine Trail in Germany...
