Anniversary weekend

Basel is a good place to be at the moment. The annual two-week autumn fair is still on until Sunday - a unique event that comprises various sites around the centre of town and holds a place in many local hearts. This Monday past also marked one year since Jenny and I tied the knot. In celebration, we extended the weekend accordingly, taking in the fair and Basel's Paper Museum (where we made paper; it was our "paper anniversary" after all), as well as enjoying some culinary delights and a few drops of good wine.
"z'Basel isch Herbschtmäss!"

Weingut Pfeffingen, Scheurebe Auslese 2010

A notice at Basel's Paper Museum

Our wedding candle
The wines flanking the candle contained Weingut Ziereisen's Pinot Noir Jaspis 2007. It was our one and only bottle - and its time had come. A congenial partner to rack of lamb. No notes on this, nor on the Scheurebe, I'm afraid. Some wines are best left to sip and enjoy.
