We need to save the Mosel. As I've written earlier, a few misguided German politicians, led by Merkel, have decided that it's in the Mosel's best interest to build a behometh bridge, right over this beautiful valley. This highway apparently is meant to relieve congestion. This bridge is going right over some of the greatest vineyards of the Mosel, and will also irreparably destroy the delicate ecosystem and terroir of the wines that I, and many many others, love so much.
So here's what you have to do - sign this petition. It's a last effort to preserve this pristine part of the wine kingdom, and we need 10,000 signatures. I'm signature no. 5073 - we still have some way to go. The petition number is 10681, and the Hauptpetent is Reis, Elisabeth.
Please, especially for the friends I've opened bottles for.......this is the least you can do. Click the link, follow the idiot-proof instructions, and help save the Mosel. If this monster really gets built, and we lose some of the truly great wines of the world - I don't know what I'll do with myself.
Just to remind myself of what's at stake:
