Cellar Craft Showcase Gewurztraminer-Riesling

Cellar Craft Today we are looking at Cellar Craft International's Showcase Gewurztraminer-Riesling wine. The grapes for this award winning wine are again from the Yakima Valley in Washington State.

The peach and melon undertones from the Riesling grapes meld perfectly with the spice, mango, grapefruit and lychee flavors of the Gewurztraminer.

This wine is absolutely elegant with a hint of sweetness coming from the Riesling flavor reserve pack which accompanies this wine. This full-bodied white wine can be enjoyed young or you can age this wine to let its rich flavors develop even more. Enjoy this wine just slightly chilled!

Hey! We're on the web at and we have a complete line of home wine making equipment, home winemaking supplies, wine making ingredient kits (Cellar Craft and WinExpert) plus all the winemaking ingredients necessary to make your own recipes from backyard fruit.

Anything else? You bet! We also have our store chock full of homebrewing ingredients, supplies, equipment and our very own BlueStem's Best home brew ingredient kits. These kits come complete with all the ingredients necessary (even the beer bottle caps) for you to make a five gallon batch of homemade beer. The best part is that it tastes as good or better as the upscale craft brews you purchase for much more in the store.

We want to put in a plug for our website people! We had a very bad experience with our first website builder and host provider out of Clear Lake, Iowa. After fighting a never ending battle to get things done on our site we finally contacted Impact Marketing out of Waterloo, Iowa to assist us in building our present website. In a few words, Impact Marketing has been everything to us that our first website provider was not! Thinking of building a website? I very strongly recommend that you contact Andy at You can also visit Andy's blog (there is information about our own website on Andy's blog) at

Another subject of great importance to me is racing and in particular racing Ford Mustangs. We are regulars at our local track (Cedar Falls Raceway) and also are known to frequent Cordova and Byron, Illinois on occasion to race and we make an annual trek to the World Ford Challenge whether it is in Indianapolis, Joliet or East St. Louis. We own several Mustangs (plus several other Fords) and we race a few of these at the track. We recently purchased parts on the internet from a company that thinks they are a big time Ford parts supplier (located in Elkton, Virginia). They won't be hard to find (Elkton is only about 2,000 people). We were treated to a shipment of low quality merchandise, excessive shipping expense and when we had the gall to ask the status of our purchase we were treated to a tirade of e-mail abuse. We have filed a complaint against the Ford aftermarket parts supplier with both the Better Business Bureau and the Chamber of Commerce. Buying Ford parts in Virginia? Beware of this one!!
