We are honored to have Ben from Winemonger Imports to pour three absolutely delicious Austrian and German wines!

All wines featured at tastings are 10% off during the tasting session. Hopefully we will see you here! Please join us on Fri, March 17th from 6-8pm to explore these three beautiful beverages!

Franz Etz Gruner Veltliner


REGION: Kamptal, Niederösterreich, Austria

VARIETAL/BLEND: Gruner Veltliner

NOTES: Light Bodied, dry, medium acidity, light-moderate intensity, short-medium finish, citrus fruits. Franz and Karl Etz’s Kamptal bottling is Winemonger Imports latest offering in their super-fresh liter bottle Grüner series. The Etz’s are two 30ish brothers, representing the 4th generation of the family business, with holdings in some of the best vineyard sites (Gaisberg, Grub) in Kamptal. Their Grüner is as crisp and refreshing as an Alpine stream.


Feiler-Artinger Zweigelt


REGION: Austria


NOTES: Harvested from vineyards in the hills above Rust; vines 10-38 years of age grown in brown soil with a slight clay content and a bit of limestone, over subsoils of granite and gneiss. Fermented in stainless steel, then does malolactic fermentation in large wooden casks. Maturation in large wood as well. Zippy fruit with dark cherry aromatics, which follow smartly on to the palate. Soft and finely-woven tannins. Could be slightly chilled and be served similar to a good Beaujolais, but would also work with fairly hearty dishes as the acid cuts through meats with sauces. The 2011 vintage provided excellent ripeness, this Zweigelt turns out to be nicely structured as well.


Weingut Winter, Riesling


REGION: Rheinhessen, Germany


NOTES: A dry, full-flavored Riesling with a superb long finish and tasty earthy fruitiness. Rheinhessen wines at their best show soil rather than, say, the minerality that Mosels show. Here you get lovely fruit, good texture and a clean, snappy earthiness that is quite unique. Remarkable density for a liter wine.
