It is rather frightening to watch a robustly built, full-grown mountain man approach you brandishing a razor-sharp, foot-long blade. Only when you realize that the knife is destined for the large hunk of speck he wields in his other hand can you turn off your fight-or-flight instincts, settle down, and begin sniffing the crisp white wine that has appeared in front of you.
Manni Nössing has served you his latest vintage of Müller Thurgau, an exotically perfumed elixir with tropical nuances that races across the palate like meltwater rushing down a stony mountainside. This is exactly what you need to complement tender, savory, delicately smoky cuts of artisanally carved local ham.

Trust the great winemakers, trust the great vineyards. Your wine merchant might even be trustworthy. In the long run, that vintage strip may be the least important guide to quality on your bottle of wine.—Kermit Lynch
