  1. Ben's Alpine Wines Austrian Tour Part 2

    Ben's Alpine Wines Austrian Tour Part 2
    On Tuesday we packed our bags and said goodbye to the little part of Vienna which had been our home. Waldschütz Our first stop was north of the city to the town of Sachsendorf where we visited the beautiful winery of Waldschütz. We have been importing Waldschütz wine for a few years and they keep getting better and winning multiple...
  2. ALPINE WINES AUSTRIAN TOUR PT1

    ALPINE WINES AUSTRIAN TOUR PT1
    It is a far, far better thing to sleep until the sun has risen than to crawl from bed at 3.30am to enable you to catch a flight to Vienna. Sleep aside, however, the end definitely justified the means. Joelle, Robb and the wine-dog, Ziro, had gone on ahead a few days earlier, by car. On this trip I was...
  3. RECIPE: CHERVIL SOUP

    RECIPE: CHERVIL SOUP
    Light soups are perfect in Spring when it's nowhere near as warm as we wish it were, but when cooking hearty winter fare would feel too much like defeat. This one is perfect with a Furmint or Sauvignon blanc. You can do the same with any other herb of your choice, rocket, wild garlic or nettle. Recipe translated from one shared...
  4. We love Schnitzel

    We love Schnitzel
    If you follow us on social media, you might have gotten the impression that we have a mad love for Schnitzel. Allow me to correct you: we're a lot crazier for Schnitzel than you think! And that's not counting Cordon Bleu, which we love possibly more! I mean, it is Schnitzel with ham and cheese added... We're pretty certain that fried, breaded...
  5. I'm not old!

    I'm not old!
    I fell in love with mature white wines with "old" Rhône whites. "they" often tell you viognier can't age much, but I have had extraordinary wine moments with wines people would tell you don't make sense. So I don't give up on wines - I taste them and if they are still good, they remain for sale. We regularly revisit...
  6. LIFE MUST GO ON

    LIFE MUST GO ON
    Beautiful Blaufrankisch lives on forever! Birth, taxes and death are the three constants in all our lives and the same applies to wine. We only let the last bottle of a fantastic wine sit awaiting a buyer for so long. Eventually, we decide it's your loss, our gain, and we drink it. Today we marked the end of a wonderful wine...
  7. AUSTRIAN RED RESERVE TASTING

    AUSTRIAN RED RESERVE TASTING
    Now that the March edition of Decanter has been released, we can congratulate those of our winemakers who had wines in the top 40 list for Reserve reds from indigenous grapes. The list gives the scores and the order of the wines and we were intrigued by the wines that made the top 40 and those that did not. These are...
  8. WELL DONE RALPH!

    WELL DONE RALPH!
    I told you it's all good at Weinhof Waldschütz. After getting a silver medal last year (with his first solo wine, the Grüner Veltliner Brunnthal) this year Ralph wins Gold at the Sommelier Wine Awards with his lovely Riesling Classic. This marks the wine as delicious, distinctive, and excellent value - all of which we knew of course, but it is always nice to have...
  9. AUSTRIAN WINE TASTING AT LEEDS UNIVERSITY

    AUSTRIAN WINE TASTING AT LEEDS UNIVERSITY
    Only rarely do you manage to have a wine tasting where all the people are pleased all of the time. This was one of them. Despite being a mainly 'red' group, the members of the LUUWS found a new appreciation for white wines thanks to the quality presented in this introduction to Austrian wines. Klostersekt Stift Klosterneuburg Cuvée comprising 60...
  10. IN CONVERSATION WITH ELISABETH HAUSGNOST

    IN CONVERSATION WITH ELISABETH HAUSGNOST
    Meet Elisabeth Wine is the great passion of Elisabeth Hausgnost. She grew up in a winery near Krems and studied viticulture in Klosterneuburg. After some years of international wine trading she decided to start her own business - Wein & Genuss (wine & relish). Every year she selects the best wines from Weinviertel and other regions in Austria and sells...
