galena priorat.-In the time-honoured town hall hall - where a good two months ago, as every year, the old custom of "One, two, Geissebei" took place - the former town and municipal councillors are invited to dinner. I am there and put my nose into the glass expectantly - while drinking red wine. A drink of honour at a dinner of honour. An infinitely heavy, deep, fruity, young Bordeaux comes towards me, but it can't be a Bodeaux at all (but perhaps it would like to be, I don't know). I guess Spain and I'm right. The wine is good, but...

Why Spain, why not a local wine? A "Rosenstädter" - actually a historic city wine (vineyard below the castle) or - not quite as distinguished - a "Höcklisteiner", a "Lenggiser", "Meineberg", a country wine, Pinot Noir, as there are many around Lake Zurich. You can even - if the wine of the municipality (pardon: of the city) is not representative enough - it is a dinner of honour after all - you can - as with white wine at the aperitif - switch to Zurich: there are a few very good names: Schwarzenbach, Meier, Schipf or even on the Obersee: Bamert.IMG_0357
