SO  what happens when you combine one of the greatest Riesling-producing countries of all time with the likes of the Paul Greico, the Overlord of Riesling, and the gang of enthusiastic acidhounds that is the Summer of Riesling?

Simple: pure, electric bliss.

 This past summer Austrian wine has had the pleasure of working alongside the Summer of Riesling crew in search of a greater good: a higher appreciation of Riesling.

So far, we’ve done a lot of things – we rang in the summer with an all-out Riesling bash at Hearth, we chatted about Riesling on the internet in #WineChat Riesling in combination with Germany and Alsace, we’ve conducted tastings, dinners, and more… and, don’t worry, it’s not over yet!

Next week the Austrian Wine Queen will arrive which will set-off an additional series of events in a special Ode to Austria with events in both New York and Chicago… we can’t wait to wet our palates!

In typical Austrian-style, we couldn’t resist throwing one last bash of the summer to celebrate all things Austrian Riesling at one of our favorite Austrian hot spots, Edi & the Wolf!

Please join us Monday, August 20th, at 10pm for one last hoorah of this Riesling-soaked season before we set you on your own to enjoy Austrian Riesling for the rest of the summer and beyond.
