Celebrating Austria & Germany's Red Wines
Free Tasting this Thursday, 5:30-7:30pm:
Austrian & German Reds
RSVP today!

Austria and Germany are justly famous for their whites. But their reds can be incredibly exciting as well.

This Thursday we give the reds of Austria and Germany some much deserved spotlight.

Austria and Germany offer plenty to interest drinkers of red Burgundy, Rhone, New World Pinot and beyond.

They are fascinatingly varied wines. From elegant Spatburgunders (aka Pinot Noir) and St. Laurents to structured and spicy Blaufränkisch, we'll be exploring their diversity and food friendliness.

To begin with Austria, the line-up includes Moric's seriously structured and mineral 2010 Blaufrankisch. Moric's Blaufränkisch shows just how complex and terroir-saturated the grape can be. On the other side of the spectrum is Tinhof's Blau+ Red. It's a deliciously gulpable food friendly wine of dark fruit and spice.

From Germany, there's Becker's Pinot Noir Estate 2009, which is a gorgeous exercise in cherry fruit and discreet elegance. There's also Rebholz's Pinot Noir Tradition 08, a robust and complex with dark spicy cherry notes that have really good weight and punch. The energy behind this wine is really impressive.

Please join us THIS Thursday, October 25, for an extensive tasting of Austrian and German reds. Yes - it's free! - but we're asking everyone to RSVP to Please let us know how many people will be in your party.

We hope you can make it.

Please be sure to RSVP.
