I met Jim the Irish architect of flavors from the White Rose Winery one early morning, but for some of us it is just never to early to have a sip or 2 from 11 types of wine, Some say that the Irish breakfast is 3 parts alcohol and one part wheat or rye! Leek and Potato, Irish Onion, soup and Ballynacally chicken ( baked in Guinness and honey) accompanied with Irish Mash and Salad and to top it off is the Leftover Cake, before noon was a little to much but the first glass of the Marechal Foch changed things quickly 11 bottles opened and hundreds of stories flowed.
Ok when you arrive and walk up the long path to the dark house that appears in the distance don’t be alarmed once you get closer you can see the lights are all on.. Sunken back under huge awning / or roof that circles the house are all types of comfortable chairs and benches. The door is open and the welcome sign might greet you or Jim may pop up from winery just say hello from me and ask him to pour you a drink! Or A Proper Pot of Tea...
The endless things that catch my attention to and fro…….. The next is faces arms, hands and the positive vibe of the happy souls, working souls, the factory workers from St Louis The factory workers from Kansas City!
