Grüner Veltliner of Austria

Saturday, September 26, 2020

Virtual Wine Tasting: Grüner Veltliner of Austria with Jesse Becker, MS, 4:30pm to 5:30pm (MT), $75

If spicy Grüner Veltliner and powerfully dry Riesling are Austria’s great contributions to the world of wine, then Austria’s Danube River Valley is its apex. The tributary rivers of Krems, Traisen, and Kamp, lend their names by adding “-tal” (the German word for valley) and issue archetype Grüner and Riesling under their respective DACs. Kamptal’s
deep sediments of loess soil give especially textured Grüner Veltliner while the tiny Wachau yields powerful wines, especially those named Smaragd, a sun-loving lizard. Join Master Sommelier Jesse Becker for a deep dive into the wines of Austria’s Danube River Valley.
