We used Susan's frequent flyer miles to fly 1st class on Lufthansa (thanks Susan!) to Munich for my cousin Guido's wedding, followed by a few days of romantic R&R in Venice!
We also visited my good friend Sandra and her family in nearby Leipheim.

A few notes from my journal:

Thankfully the heatwave was pretty much over.
Highlights include: visiting friends in and near Heidelberg, wine-tasting and castles on the romantic Rhine river, and more wine-tasting on the Mosel river.

Some handy links to more info:
The highly recommended winery with B&B in Wehlen on the Mosel river -- we had a fabulous room and the hosts were friendly.
The 140 wine tasting cellar in Bernkastel on the Mosel river.
Rick Steve's Germany info -- Rick is a popular Seattle-based guidebook author of the series "Europe Through The Back Door" and his recommendations are always great. His guidebooks cover the best parts of countries (usually to be seen in 3 weeks), not everything; and his lodging and food recommendations are almost always great!
For info on the 15-wine tasting carousel, see the "Eating in Bacharach" section.
