Have metallic embossed label, will travel
Before you ask… yes, I am still not quite up to the full-on feature articles, and am woefully behind. Look, I’ve got major issues on the homestead, people, so you’re going to need to be patient (or, simply enthrall yourselves with any of the other billion English-language wine blogs out there for now).
The issues have not stopped me from imbibing wine, however (even after having mouth surgery – oh yeah, who’s your drinkin’ daddy?!??). Hey, this is me we’re talking about, here!
Fortunately for both of us, the sample pool gods hath been smilingly generous towards me in my time of personal woe. Thanks to them, I can throw the following wines and resulting frissons of gustatory excitement out at you, my friends.

The wines are excellent… almost as good as the views from the top of the vineyard, and almost as fun as horsing around with a Go Pro.
I hope that you’ve enjoyed the Furmint USA video series (if you enjoyed them a tenth as much as I did making them, we will have accomplished something!).
