It is high time that I started channelling my inner Julie Andrews with a few of my favourite things discovered in the last twelve months.
Raindrops on roses and Macedon Chardonnay
Bright copper kettles and Lagrein on a bogged day
Dirty Three Pinot with pure fruit that sings
These are a few of my favourite things
The Tyrolese are a lovely and talented people who speak both German and Italian. However with the majority of the population being of Austro-Bavarian heritage, I believe you would hear more ‘Ja ja, das ist eine sehr gut wine‘ in your wine travels through the area. Recently Bibemus decided to pay homage to the wines of Trentino-Alto Adige on a chilly Melbourne evening in the warm confines of Bar Di Stasio. While the group did not dress up in Tyrolean costume, I did my best my playing ‘99 Luft Balloons‘ in the background and practicing my favourite Year 7 German phrase ‘Das ist meine hamburger’ and ‘Mein Leiblingsfach ist Deutsch‘ to the poor sod sitting next to me.
