Gruner Veltliner is the signature grape of Austria. Famed as one of the most versatile white wines in the world, it can match a wide range of foods from vegetables all the way up to grilled meats. The typical flavor profile of Gruner is plenty of citrus fruit, spice, and white pepper, backed with refreshing acidity. Gruner Veltliner is also known to be one of the only wines that can handle the sworn enemy of wine, Asparagus. Yes, that’s right, a wine to complement Asparagus.
The best region in Austria for growing Gruner Veltliner is a series of three adjoining small valleys, the Wachau, Kremstal, and Kamptal. We just brought in a new Gruner Veltliner from the Kamptal, produced by one from one of Austria's star producers, Birgit Eichinger, with fruit from thirty year old vines in the Wechselberg vineyard.
