Descripción

Tasked with a job of listing 5 things Austria gave to the world, many would mention Sacher Torte before Austrian wines, which is rather unfair and is in part remedied by the catchy yet revealing motto of the official Austrian wine website: "The art of wine. Down to earth" .

Best known for its excellent dry whites from Riesling or its own signature variety Grüner Veltliner, it is also home to some fantastic reds made from Zweigelt, Blaufränkisch and Sankt Laurent, the latter being dubbed as 'Austrian Pinot Noir'. Other idiosyncratic grape varieties are also being discovered by international experts and sommeliers, making Austria a darling on the best wine lists of the world.

Austrians have been making wine for at least a couple of millenia, which is easily appreciated in Roman cellars and medieval villages scattered around the country. However, despite paying all due respect to its ancient traditions, Austria has now become an exciting, modern wine country with an internationally recognised depth of quality and very dynamic natural wine scene. One of the reasons its wines have not been better known abroad is probably because the domestic market snaps up most of the good stuff, and this demand keeps the prices relatively high.

________________________

This time we'll be tasting our way through the diverse landscapes of Swarowski and Schrödinger's home country, and you shall expect to try

  • a welcome glass of Austrian Sekt

  • 2 very different styles of whites, followed by 2 contrasting reds

All wines will be paired with cheese and Heuriger ('wine tavern') influenced snacks.


PRACTICAL DETAILS

The tasting is likely to last for about 2 hours.

Always best to plan ahead, so for this and other tastings, I will be asking for 100% prepayments, in order for me to secure our very special wines & food.

Tickets are non-refundable.

Please let me know about your dietary requirements ahead of the event.



UPCOMING TASTINGS

The best place to find out about upcoming tastings is my new wine-focused Facebook and Instagram pages.

If you don't use either of them, I also send out a monthly newsletter - make sure to send me your e-mail to be put on the mailing list.
