WildSnow.com is doing quite well these days. Arlberg is fun. As a celebration, we bought a special bottle of backcountry wine at the Hospiz Alm and had a toast to our continued success. Far be it that the grape came dear, it was worth every euro cent.
Myself in full formal wine tasting rig, appropriate for St. Anton am Arlberg. The cellar does celebrity portraits for their hall walls; I was honored with this one. Honestly, I was still wearing ski boots when the photo was taken.
As they say, dress (or, drink?) for success, and what better place than the Hospiz Alm wine cellar at St. Christoph in the Arlberg, Alps?
Selecting something to have with dinner. The cheap 40,000 euro bottles were like a contamination.
Our choice for a table wine was easy. Chateau Chevel Blanc Grand Cru Classé year 2000, an optimally affordable 80,000 euros a bottle.
