Live From The Candle Mercantile - Dinner Plus Drinks #92

9/26/2021

We hope you enjoy this slightly different episode that also visited a few other of our favorite places to hang out in downtown Lake Geneva. If you're a local, now is (arguably) the best time of the year to get out and enjoy our...

For this episode, we took on the challenge of finding German wines that you can drink for Oktoberfest. Most people immediately think of overly sweet Riesling when they think of German wine, but Germany makes a wide range of styles and grapes. Some are really good, some...well...you'll have to listen and here what we think. Here are the wines that we...
