A Touch of Luxury

Posted on November 13, 2012 at 7:05 PM

Marilyn and I drove to Traverse City, Michigan last week to purchase some gorgeous antique blue breganza bottles for this year's release of apple ice wine.  We certainly could have used cheaper bottles, because the cost of the trip and the German imported bottles make them a bit pricey.

But "oh my gosh!" are they beautiful bottles.  And something as tantalizing and smooth as ice wine deserves good presentation.  Here's what they look like:

The dark teal color is so unusual, reminds me of the bottom of icebergs and promises something special.  We hope you have an opportunity to try this occasional wine which we haven't released for two years.  We had our eyes on some crab apples that keep their apples well into winter, so Josh and I spend the past few early mornings picking while the apples were still frozen.  We'll post more on this delightful wine as we make it next week.
