For a grape most of us had never heard of 10-15 years ago, Grüner Veltliner from Austria has become a fixture in many of our white wine rotations. And why not? Especially at “value” price points, “GV” delivers crisp, dry, whites that have more than enough fresh fruit to avoid austerity and just enough subtle spice and white pepper herbal notes to satisfy with complexity, too. 

But there’s even more to Grüner than you know – and no one is better than importer and Austrian native Klaus Wittauer to show you what you might have been missing.

We’ll also have seven great GVs open to taste, showcasing a range of styles and the unique differences Grüner expresses in famed sites in the Wachau, Wagram and Kamptal regions and beyond. You’ll find crisp, uncomplicated, “patio pounders” for sure, but also lusciously ripe, deeply mineral and even lightly oaked examples that are built to shine with sophisticated foods and even time in cellar. We’ll serve up light and wine-friendly snacks that let you see how each wine shines both solo and at table.

With a lifetime of experience in Austrian wine, a portfolio of top producers in each major region, and boatloads of enthusiasm and good humor, Klaus is the perfect guide to great Grüner. Join us!
