Day 178-Octoberfest by the Village Vintner in Carpentersville, Il for $14.99
This wine is a blend of 4 grapes-Riesling, Gewurtz, Moscato and I am unsure of the 4th one. Each year the vintner states that he makes a new Octoberfest wine in celebration of the German festival and some of the German grapes. I believed this Octoberfest was slightly sweeter than last year's Octoberfest and we liked this year's vintage better. We paired the wine with fish and it went very well. This wine is another crowd pleaser, it is very light with some sweetness, and minimal acidity. I know this wine comes out in October, but it would be a very good summer wine also. This wine became an instant favorite, and extremely versatile with a very cute label that would make it a great accompiament to any Thanksgiving feast.
