Weingut Steininger, Langenlois, Austria
Led by Eva Steininger
We are honored to host Eva Steininger, of Weingut Steininger, one of our favorite Austrian producers. We have so many good wines to show that we had to split the tasting into two. Steininger has won numerous awards for their sparkling wines, known as sekt, which they do as single varieties. They own vineyards in each of the Kamptal’s crus from which they also make still wines.
Friday evening’s tasting will start with a sekt, then focus on still wines. This is the area of Austria known for its Gruner Veltliners and Rieslings, all vinified dry. The Steiningers own small lots in each of the region’s grand crus. Eva will guide us from the entry levels to the crus.
Saturday’s morning event will be an informal brunch, with quiche and fruit, and several delicious and refreshing Steininger sekts. Eva collaborated with her father, Karl, making these wines when we met her eight years ago. These were the wines that captured our hearts when we first visited Austria. We are excited that Eva agreed to this second event that gives you the opportunity to taste the difference across grapes in sparklings. We are in for a treat.
