Weingut am Rosenburg

I have to interrupt Maverick rocking out..... tell you about a trip I took back in September with my friend Anna.  We went on a tour that included a stop at a vineyard in a German town called Osann.  I thought it was pretty funny that we left Osan AB and came to Germany where I found another place called Osann.  This town was surrounded by vineyards going up every hill.
The name of the vineyard was Weingut am Rosenberg, and has been in Herr Brösch's family for over three generations.
 This is the beautiful entrance.

 Herr Brösch took us out to the grapes and told us about their growing season, how they cultivate and harvest them, and how different wines are made.  It was really very cool and he seems to know everything there is to know about winemaking.  They make mostly Rieslings, but also a few others.  The amount and types of grapes they use are regulated very strictly.

 They harvest the grapes all the way to the top by hand!
We got unlimited tasting of whatever kind we wanted.  So, I did.
 This one is called a Dornfelder, which is a relatively new type of wine- developed about fifty years ago.  It is grown and produced primarily in our region of Germany, but is not as popular as the Riesling wines.
