Manic doesn’t even begin to describe the last few weeks – a whirlwind of house moves, engagements, holidays and babies (not mine!) and I’m not complaining, just apologising for the radio silence…
Amidst the chaos, I squeezed in an incredible trip to the Nahe region of Germany as part of the German Wine Academy trip for wine educators. Below are some pics and highlights of the trip to show you why you MUST visit Germany and sample the country’s incredible wines!
