Jutta Ambrositsch and Wachter-Wiesler This Thursday 5:30-8 PM

Jutta Ambrositsch Wiener Gemischter Satz Kosmopolit 2020 & Jutta Ambrositsch Gemischter Satz Ringelspiel 2018   These two white field blends from Vienna captured my heart and I can't wait for you to try them this Thursday along with truly great Austrian red at an unbelievable price point. There is a long tradition of residents going to the hillsides to have a glass of wine and snacks at a Heurigen or Buschenschank overlooking the city. Heurigen could roughly be translated as a wine bar. Buschenschank is similar, but they are only allowed to sell products that are made in-house, wine included.  Jutta Ambrositsch started her own Buschenschank in 2006 after leaving behind an office job as a graphic designer although she still...

Join us this Thursday 5:30 - 8 for some VDF wines (Vin de France).  So what is the VDF designation all about? We are working with Flow Wine Group to bring you these wines, and they do a great job of explaining it......

France is known for its individual appellations. For example, you don’t necessarily buy a Pinot Noir; you buy a Burgundy. You don’t necessarily buy a sparkling Chardonnay; you buy a blanc de blanc Champagne. This is how it’s always been done in the “Old World.”   The U.S is the “New World .” and the rules are different here. We buy wine by grape variety. We...
