Surprise Dad with these clean, refreshing wines that will pair beautifully with summer's bounty of fresh flavors and even spicy BBQ dishes!


Gruner Veltliner is the signature grape of Austria and produces a dry white wine with savory aromas, spicy flavors, and good acidity. It’s bright acidity and savory character make it an ideal partner to mildly spiced Vietnamese, Thai, and Chinese dishes. Fish and shellfish are accented by its citrus and mineral profile while its acidity cuts the richness of pork or ham. Also works well with difficult to pair foods such as bitter greens and asparagus. 


Austria's signature red grape is Zweigelt, a spicy, full-bodied but elegant take on Pinot Noir, made as a Rosé as well!

Loimer, Grüner Veltliner, Langenloiser Kamptal, 2020 - $22.99

"Opens with a beautifully clear, fresh, herbal-spicy and coolish bouquet of white fruits and seeds. Lush and light yet intense on the palate, this is a juicy-crystalline, piquant and finely grippy Veltliner with remarkable vitality and elegance. The finish is intense, crisp and salty." ~ 93 pts, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate


Nigl, Gruner Veltliner, Kamptal, 2020 - $20.99 

Sourced from 3 vineyards in Krems. Fermented in stainless steel and bottled at night when the wine is cold, to preserve freshness. Shows pear and lime peel notes as well as floral and grassy components, with a clean mineral finish. Member of the Association "Österreichische Traditionsweingüter” "(Traditional Austrian Wineries). "The trick is to create a perfectly balanced wine, bringing everything from the vineyard unscathed to the bottle: fruit, finesse, elegance, density and minerality." - Martin Nigl


Christina, Gruner Veltliner, Carnuntum, , 2020 - $20.99

Christina Netzl began her path towards natural winemaking as a young girl of 5 years old, working on her family’s farm and vineyard. Her labels are a tribute to the beneficiary insects that inhabit the vineyards. Not all bugs are bad – these useful little critters help manage pests and build soil health and biodiversity, which is so important in natural winemaking! Organic.


Loimer, Rosé, Langenloiser Kamptal, 2020 - $19.99

This rosé comes from biodynamically-farmed vineyards near the village of Langenlois. Zweigelt gives this rosé a soft and fruity character with aromas and flavors of red cherries, plums, and Red Delicious apples. Pinot Noir contributes to the wine’s aromatics, lending floral and herbal aromas in addition to refreshing acidity. 


Juris, St. Laurent, Bergenland, 2017 - $21.99

The high quality "Sankt Laurent" belongs to the Pinot family and has experienced a revival in Austrian wine-producing regions. It is a wine that does not impress with power or opulence, but is appreciated for its delicate fruit, elegance, and fineness. Very dark garnet with purple reflections, a strong, full-bodied vintage, reminiscent of sour cherry and cherry fruit. Typical varietal character with well integrated tannins and a long finish with soft caramel notes and fine, toasty aromas.


Glatzer, Zweigelt, Carnuntum, 2018 - $17.99 

Austria’s most popular red grape! Carnuntum was recenty named the 14th Austrian DAC winegrowing region with specific protections in place for regionally typical wines! Rolling hills and a warm Continental climate characterize the terroir and give rise to modern, elegant red wines. Spicy and positively bursting with fruit!
