These are more acidic than the S6millon, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle, which are blended for Sauternes. The result is a lighter and grace- ful wine when young, and a fresh- er, crisper wine as it ages. Some of these wines are still vital after 80 years in the bottle. Vouvray is the best known of the Loire Val- ley wines. The best recent vintage was 1989; 1988, 1990 and 1996 are also terrific. Another nice dessert wine that is unique is Eiswein (ice wine). These wines achieve their concen- tration in a totally different way. Originally, Eiswein was produced in Germany. The story is a sur- prise killing frost swept through the German wine-growing region one night just before harvest. The grapes were frozen and split open. The following morning as the sun warmed the area, the grapes thawed and the water inside ran off. Some enterprising winemaker decided to go ahead and produce wine from these grapes. While the winemaker's name has been lost to history, his dis- covery became known wherever early frost is a danger. In fact, this process had concentrated the must, or grape juice, as botrytis would without the unpleasant task of removing the mold or the possi- bility of contamination of the wine. The only problem was getting the cooperation of the weather. As you realize, modem day freezing techniques have solved the prob- lem. I recommend Bonny Doon Vineyard Orange Muscat de Vin Glaciere by our old friend Randall Grahm, the original Rho'ne Ranger. Unfortunately, there is a prob- lem with these wines. The intense concentration of the must results in much lower yield and a resul- tant higher price. A first growth Vouvray Moelleux (moelleux dis- tinguishes sweet from dry) costs about $50 to $60 per bottle, and the Eiswein around $35 to $40. While I realize that may sound pricey to some, I truly believe it is worth the experience. Garden Gourmet, thanks to bar manager Tim Wood, has won the prestigious "Best of Awards for Excellence" from "Wine Specta- tor" magazine. This is the third straight year we have been chosen to have the best list in the state by this nationally recognized publi- cation. Thanks, Tim.

Please note that I am quoting someone off the Interact and I am not endorsing or suggesting this. Once again, were I so doing, I would request a social safety net. Finally, one of my best friend's daughter asked. Wait a minute. Sidebar. Marsha and I went to camp together. We went to school together. We shared each other's brothers as dates for "Senior Weekend" because we could not find "real dates." And I might add that both our brothers were younger brothers. But they were so tall that when asked what year they were and replied, "juniors" everyone assumed that was ju- niors as in college. Yes, this has something to do with food, but [ thought you should know we are real friends. Anyway, Hadley (Martha's daughter, whom I al- ways get confused with Beasley, her dog, because they all have the same sort of names. The other kid is named Mercer. Go fish.), walked into the living room the other night and was totally in- censed. She yelled, "Mother, why haven't you told me about..." Sidebar. That's the scariest way a 10-year-old can start a sentence as far as I'm concerned. Hadley yelled, "Mother, why haven't you told me about clarified butter?" Turns out Hadley is a Martha Stewart freak. That's worth noting since we are getting close to Hal- loween. Hey, Mark and Sammy - keep slugging them for the kids. beekeeping, honey is the one that captivates the interest of the gen- eral public. People prefer local honey, and the association will ex- amine ways to excite interest in Sussex honey to make more sales. Honey, like wine, varies in col- or, smell and taste from region to region and year to year. Most Sus- sex honey is somewhat wild and reflects the "bouquet" of the wild cherry, tulip poplar and maple - upon which the bees feed - rather than the mere "clover" of the gro- cery store honey brought in from the Midwest. The association is composed of everyone in between. The meeting is open to the public and refresh- ments will be offered. The loca- tion is at the University of Center, Route 9, six miles west of Georgetown. For detai!s, call Dean Burroughs at 410-543-6344.
