A Midsummer's Picnic w/ Schlossadler Int'l Wines

Once upon a time, I was in a Virtual Wine Club.  Every month we would pick a varietal and then go about our days...working in as many different bottles throughout the month as we could.  Some months it was 2 or 3 bottles.  Other months it was upwards of 10.  I even started keeping a little wine journal with photos of and/or labels from each bottle I tried.  We had lots fun chatting and sharing our finds.  Maybe what we at with the wine or made from it.  Certain vineyards we really loved; others not so much.
