Summer wouldn’t be the same without Riesling #WineChat hosted in conjunction with the Wines of Germany and the Wines of Alsace.

Now in its third year, the three old-world countries of Riesling are strutting their stuff showcasing some of the best terroirs – ours being the Heilingenstein which has received a lot of special attention lately… and rightfully so.

Our wine, the Brandl Heilingenstein Erste Lage 2011 is a fantastic representation of what the Kamptal region of Austria is capable of… and what the coutnry of Austria is capable of, in general. We won’t spoil the surprise of what it tastes like … hopefully you can join in the fun and discover for yourself.
