    I just had some Neuwein with friends in Frankfurt am Main two weeks ago on Reunification Day – the wine was dangerous stuff: easy to drink, easy to forget the alcohol content. Thanks for your post, Andrew!

      Yeah, the stuff is indeed deadly. I remember wandering around a market early in the morning with friends. So before breakfast, so it went straight to your head. Thanks for the comment, Henry.

    We loved the market in Freiburg – sad we missed out on these seasonal delicacies!

      I am glad you enjoyed your visit here. I am surprised you didn’t see it. I kind of thought that the new wine season is a few weeks old now. If you missed it, it was only by days I fear.
      Mean’s you will have to be back!

    I am nerdily psyched to hear there is another term for this stuff (which I love!). Around here it’s usually neuer Wein or, more rarely, Federweisser. I’ve never heard neuer Suesser. The combo with Zwiebelkuchen is famously wonderful to eat and less wonderful to digest. 😉 (We all do it every year anyway!! 😀 )

      I saw two even here. Kretzler or something like that, you can kind of see in one photo. I guess it shows how regional even the language is in Germany.

    Great post – and thank you for mentioning yours truly! I’m sorry I didn’t get the chance to try young wine with Zweibelkuchen this year, it sounds like a fab combination. And you’re right, the two drinks in our regions do sound similar – if there’s any left and I make it to Koeln perhaps we should each bring a bottle so we can do a taste test 🙂

      You are welcome for the mention. Do you get Zwiebelkuchen up there? I was asking my german roommate, and he thought it sort of hugged the areas against the French border, but we weren’t sure how close. It is in a lot of ways and ingredients similar to Elsäßer Flammkuchen. That is a good idea to bring a bottle to Köln. I do however hear from the twitter-vine that you won’t be joining us. 🙁

        Do you know what, I have actually got no idea if we have it, I was too busy eating Flammkuchen and pumpkins last year to think about it, and now I think of it I’ve only ever eaten it in London as cooked by German flatmates (when I brought home 3kg of sliced onions from the kitchen I was working in). I shall investigate and report back.

        The Koeln decision has not yet been taken, but it’s looking ever more like it that I’m not going to be able to come, which I’m gutted about.

          It was great to meet you at WEBMU. Glad it worked out for you to come.
