Stuttgarter Weindorf

The Germans love food and drink festivals...and I admire them for that.

We spent a recent afternoon at the Stuttgarter Weindorf. Nothing like a festival where it's just booth after booth of fabulous local wine and food.

So many choices, I finally settled on a plate of mushrooms and spaetzle, followed by a glass of Bottwartal Kellerei Trollinger. Trollinger is a light red wine produced in our area of Germany, perfect for this mid-afternoon treat.

Sadly, I was so full after this that I had to pass on the waffle with raspberries and cream. Heaven help me when the beer festivals start at the end of this month.


  1. Now, that is a place that cries for a visit! :-)

    PS Thank you for the comments!

  2. Those mushrooms are mouth-watering!

  3. What's spaetzle? That sausage looks good, too - must be some kind of wurst. And the mushrooms - mouthwatering. Lovely shots.

  4. Thanks...it was fabulous.

    Wolynski: Spaetzle is a German noodle...like a thick egg pasta....and I think the sausages in the photo were Rotbratwurst.


Thank you for taking the time to comment.
