Grandmas’s Dirty Secret

What’s it like to be the bell of the ball? Showered in sunshine? Loved by the masses? Despite what people tell you, I don’t have a clue. But, I’m certain, this wine does. Everyone loves the 2007 St. Urbans-Hof Ockfener Bockstein Riesling Spatlese. And, truly, what’s not to love? It opens with a spray of all things yellow – pineapple, grapefruit and lemony lime. It’s crisp and light and as beautiful on the inside as it is on the outside. Dependable and pleasing, this wine is the kind that’s happy to take grandma to the beauty parlor, to play Bridge or anywhere else grandma wants to go. On this day, grandma reveals a dirty little secret… “I don’t want to play cards with those biddies. It’s much more fun to go to Walgreens and steal things. ” And because this wine is just that kind, off they go on a drugstore shoplifting extravaganza.
