Sparkling Wine Making: The Result

And this is the result of our Sparkling Wine/Sekt making presentation. Next step would be to label the bottles and polish them a bit, but instead we had a little tasting of the product ;).

I'm guessing that you know the owner of this winery or something to be able to take up-close-and-personal photos? ;-) or people are free to take photos in general? good job of step-by-step presentation, nicola...

So I guess you aim is to turn everyone into alcoholics with these series of shots. No moree :)

It really has been educative though.

Nice composition with two un-corked bottles. Having three blogs like you, I would also be sampling the fermentation.

Yeah, as interesting as labelling might be, I'm guessing drinking is a bit more enjoyable.

(BTW, you've been linked).

Thank you for this most informative and fun series.

As for turning us into alcoholics, we'd have to be pretty posh boozers to get up in the morning and open a bottle of fine Sekt! (It is 7 am here and I'm drinking espresso, no Sekt).

Alas we don't get many kinds here. Pretty much just Henkell Trocken, from the largest firm. I'll have to try one of the more artisanal products over there.

I was thinking about taking a pic of all the wine bottles in our house but I guess thats not really a hawaii daily photo thing :P

thanks for all that wine info - If I did not know better I'd think you own your own winery!

deji77, timmybomb - thanks for your comments. Glad you like the series!

maya - I actually don't know the winery very well. We went there for the tour since you don't get that opportunity too often and I was allowed to take photos.

suby - haha, somehow everything in the Rheingau seems to be wine/alcohol related... Sorry! :)

thegerman349 - thanks! Just checked out your blog - you have some interesting photos there from your training!

sedona - haha, at home I don't actually have much alcohol. I guess otherwise I wouldn't be able to work at all ;).

adam, micki - yup, we tasted 3 sorts of Sekt and they were all best quality.

g - thanks, I'll have to update my links as well....

rudygiron - welcome to Rheingau DP!

outdoorexposure - thanks! It's good (of course) ;)!

sidney - I'm afraid you'll have to be happy with the photos ;).

lagatta - yep, it's better to stick to Espresso at this time. Henkell Trocken comes from our region here as well.

nicholas - maybe one day... you'll never know... :)
