Vom Männerchor-Zwiebelkuchen zum Merdinger Bühl! Liz hat es genossen (Stefan auch).
… we drove over the Tuniberg to Merdingen for a wine and Zwiebelkuchen fest. Various clubs in town host food and drink stalls in the local vintners‘ courtyards. All the wine came from the Merdingen vintners‘ collective, and all the food was prepared by the clubs. We ended up buying an entire pan of Zwiebelkuchen–which in Baden means a very thin, crisp dough, with a sour-cream chopped-onion custard baked on top–in exchange for the men’s chorus club making us a vegetarian one (hold the ham). Stefan asked if the chorus was going to sing and was told that after the wine had flowed long enough, everyone would be singing. Add to that the poems posted on the tent walls about how a good Zwiebelkuchen helps with the wind music, and you can imagine what things must be like by the time folks drag themselves home at 4 a.m. We were happy to have made it to Merdingen’s fest, as the Merdinger Rot Spaetburgunder is our favorite so far.
