Aaaat Laaaassssst…..

15 Dec

…my love has come along….

Exactly a year ago, one the VPs at my job threw an xmas party in her cottage.  I relunctantly went because as you all know, xmas is not exactly my thing.  As you also know, I avoid drinking during work related events because of …okay that’s another story.

Anyhue, while there, I spied a giant blue glass sticking out of an ice bucket.  It was a Johann Falkenburg Riesling.  I poured myself a small glass and I was transported to wine heaven.  The stuff was (STILL IS) good!  I asked my host where she got it and she gave me directions to some wine shop.  Later, after the holidays, i found the store but was unable to locate the wine.  The shop owners even called around trying to find this Falkeburg fellow.  I criss-crossed town like a woman possessed, checked online for wineries but could not locate this big blue beautiful bountiful  bottle (okay i am done with adjectives). 

Anyhue….so I was doing my monthly sam’s club shopping in the giant wharehouse a couple of weeks ago, when I turned my head to figure out where the bottled water section was and boooooom!  I ran smack into a huge…HUGE.. stack of …wait for it…..JOHANN FALKENBURGs!!!!!!  There must have been at least 150 cases piled in the middle of this warehouse.  I did a small victory dance… a little whoo whoo! … startled a bunch of shoppers and then proceeded to buy a bottles for my personal consumption, one for Turtle’s parents, and a whole case for…I don’t know…the entire year?  (Yeah, like that’s gonna last another month).  Turns out this actual German Reisling is a seasonal item and only comes out during the holidays…go figure. 

As I type this, I am getting ready to head to the VP’s cottage for another xmas party – where my love affair started.  I broke open the case and will be giving my host a bottle to thank her for finding me an alternative to Turtle.  Yep…I am telling Turtle that if he misbehaves, I am spending the evening with Mr. Falkenburg.

    Mr. Falkenburg, huh?

    If this is your way of distracting me from Turtle and sending me on a wild goose chase after Mr. Falkenburg, it is sooooo not working!!! Turtle is my first choice, and Turtle it is!

    That said, I might grab me a bottle from Sam’s Club – just for the heck of it. I might.

      I told Turtle about your request and he was like..”sure give her my number.” I was like, “she is too young for you old man.”

    Any bottle bigger than a microwave is definitely worth hunting for. Wishing you and Mr Falkenburg many happy times.

      We have about half a dozen cottages where I work. That’s what they are cottages…all built between 1870 and 1950. Most are historical buildings and registered with the national registry.

    I bought this bottle a couple of years ago at Sam’s club as well… That Riesling is like pure heaven… The only comparable and superior wine in this genre is IceWine but I digress…

    You just reminded me of what to add to my Xmas list of Secret Santa… Especially now that I am no longer part of Sam’s club. Lol!

      Gurrrl….it is like heaven. As for Sam’s Club, mooch of someone…I did it all the time until Turtle got me my own card.

      When you buy one, hold it like a baseball bat. People will stare. and you will get a good chuckle.
