Virtual Tasting – Entry-level Gruners from 3 DACS
May 20, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

We finish our winter-spring tasting season with an in-depth exploration of our most popular white variety: Gruner Veltliner.
Recently, Lettie Teague, wine writer for the Wall Street Journal, wrote that,
[t]wo decades ago, this white grape from Austria was an exotic novelty for most Americans and a fast sommelier favorite thanks to its food-friendly nature. This wine was seemingly everywhere—until it was not. I was among those who mostly forgot about it. But some stellar 2019 wines made me sit up and take notice once more.
At Windham Wines, we have not forgotten Gruner, because our customer-friends have not forgotten it and for good reason– it’s delicious and appeals across a range of palates.
Klaus Wittauer, Austrian wine broker and friend of Windham Wines, will be our guide for our guide as we taste three regions-three producers in each session: round one: entry-level Gruners; round 2: Single-vineyard Gruners.
