SpringFest: Wolff Vineyards and Beda’s Biergarten pair great German food and Edna Valley wine*
*including the elusive Teroldego
On April 2, Wolff Vineyards and Beda’s Biergarten paired up for pairings of a deliciously different sort at SpringFest 2017.
Held at the lovely Wolff Vineyards, perched on the side of a hill with an unobstructed view of the Edna Valley, the event drew a good crowd. From young couples to groups of old friends and newcomers who happened to be driving by, everyone enjoyed food from Beda and Helga Schmidthues’ family recipes served in their SLO-based Beda’s Biergarten.

Goulasch, Beda’s Stew, and Spätzle paired well with winemaker Jean-Pierre Wolff’s top-notch Chardonnay, Dry Alsatian Style Reisling, Pinot Noir, Syrah, and Red Wolff blend.
Before I sat down with a bowl of just-right spicy and flavorful Gulasch (gluten-free, by the way), I stopped in the tasting room and surveyed the wine list.
For two years, I’d been wanting to try the elusive Wolff Vineyards’ Teroldego. And every time, it was sold out.
But today? The grape gods were smiling.
Mark Wolff, Assistant Winemaker, poured me a deep ruby glass of Teroldego and rang up my purchase of a bottle.
As I sat down at the green table in the cool shade of the awning, I smiled and gave a silent Prost! To a life filled with great flavors: new experiences, uplifting people, good health.
And to finally meeting Teroldego. After two years, would it be worth the wait?
And that, dear Flavor Tribe, is a story for another time….
What’s your Teroldego?
