Trapp Family Lodge Wine Cellar
Austria is gaining a well-deserved reputation for making some very good wines. Fifteen years ago you’d have been hard pressed to find their wines outside specialty wine shops and Austrian restaurants. Today Gruner Veltliner is becoming a staple in wine shops as well as non-Austrian restaurants.
Do you know the grape?
They also make a good deal of Riesling, typically drier than their German cousins to the north.
Austrian white wines are currently some of my favorite whites worldwide.
Come and see what the buzz is all about.
Price is $20. Please call or see the front desk to place reservations. 802 253-5742. Doors open @ 4:00. I suggest you arrive no later than 5:00 to avoid feeling rushed. People come and go during the tasting which is an informal walk around format. We end at 6:00
