Stephan Pauly Bergweiler & Terri at BI On Monday, January 18th 2010 we hosted a wine luncheon with Stephan Pauly from Dr. Pauly Bergweiler wine estate in Germany.  Stephan's last name is Pauly, but Pauly in Germany is in comparison to the household name of Smith in the United States. To identify themselves, they added the name Bergweiler to the wine estate name. The wines here are all hand crafted from 15 different single vineyard sites. Everything is picked by hand due to the fact of steep slopes that are comprised of slate soil which makes it difficult for the pickers to keep their foot...

He is the type of guy you just want to hang out with to hear all the interesting stories he has to tell. We pour his Ramey Russian River Chardonnay by the glass, and without a doubt, a most popular Chardonnay that is Burgundian in style.

Tracey Mancini, our Senior Catering Sales Manager and myself have been long time co-workers and have always had a very close friendship. We are both very happy to have recently celebrated 17 years of service at the Bernards Inn. Tracey is like a wonderful sister to me, and I look forward to celebrating many more years working with her here at the beautiful Bernards Inn.

Michael
Halloween is one of my favorite times of the year, and I took this picture last year at an elaborate Halloween party held here at the Bernards Inn. Yes, I am a Michael Jackson fan. I thought it was magical the way he performed and danced, probably the best that ever performed. About once a year, I like to sip wine with cheese on a late Sunday afternoon and watch on DVD the live concert performances from Michael Jackson.  This picture is of course a great Michael Jackson impersonator.  Happy Halloween!
