Tomorrow is #WineChat Reds and we couldn’t be more excited! This is our third #WineChat, but our first featuring the indigenous red grapes of Austria and that is certainly something to celebrate!

We will taste the varieties Zweigelt, Blaufränkisch, and some may even pull in a St. Laurent or two. Of course, the tasting is part of a larger Austrian Reds celebration going on this fall in honor of Zweigelt (the grape’s) 90th Birthday and the announcement of the newest DAC region, Neusiedlersee DAC, which was made earlier this year, as well as the visit by the Wines of Burgenland folks to NYC.
