Glutton for Punishment

Hosted by Bob Blumer

RieslingHarvest

Bob is passionate about wine. He has toured many of the world’s renowned wine regions, tasted countless bottles, and earned the right to be considered a wine aficionado among his friends. But what happens when he is put to test by assisting in the harvest of 17 acres of precious grapes, for the maker of Germany’s finest Rieslings? Intense periods of backbreaking work will test Bob’s patience and skill, as well as his body. Prüm’s grapes are harvested late in the season, when the air has already turned crisp. While the physical efforts help warm the bodies of pickers, so does the Riesling – a late harvest desert wine. Bob’s reward: Delicious insight into the intimidating world of wine and the knowledge to back up his strong opinions. (Episode: GN0110)
