Our very own Sean spent the summer traversing the vineyards and cellars of Austria and has returned to share his discoveries from one of Europe’s most innovative and under-appreciated wine regions. Reflecting a vinous tradition that extends far beyond the ubiquitous Grüner Veltliner and world-renowned Riesling, Sean will take us on a tour from the ancient stone terraces rising above the banks of the Danube to the rolling, verdant hills of Styria in the south, with pit stops in the emergent red wine regions of Burgenland along the way. With a dizzying array of wines made from scary sounding indigenous varieties like Blaufränkisch and Zweigelt, Austrian wine can sometimes seem like a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma. Our resident expert will pull back the curtains on one of the best kept secrets in the world of wine and prove that you should never let an umlaut get in the way of a good glass of wine.

Seats are limited, so buy your ticket(s) now to learn what many of the world’s most respected wine professionals have been saying for years–Austrian wine is indisputably world class and has never been better than it is today!
