We’re happy to announce that November 2nd will mark our first ever virtual tasting event here in the US!

We’ll be teaming up with Marie Payton of Life of Vines and founder of #WineChat and taking a virtual tour through Lower Austria to showcase the fact that not all Grueners are not of the widely accepted profile of bright, crisp acidity, fresh green apple and white pepper spice. These are overlying characteristics, it’s true, but many styles also have a unique character that defines their sense of place.

The line-up:

Traisental DAC: Weingut Markus Huber Gruener Veltliner 2010 $16-18
Wagram: Weingut Leth Gruener Veltliner Steinagrund 2010 $18
Weinviertel DAC: Weingut Pfaffl Haidviertel 2010 $22
Kremstal DAC: Weingut Turk Kremser Weinberge 2009 $20-21
Kamptal DAC: Weingut Laurenz V Charming 2009 $25

Grab a bottle of Gruener Veltliner and take a virtual trip with us and some great wine blogging friends!
