Austrian wine

The Austrian seal of approval. :-)

It's usually challenging to find Austrian wine here, so we felt like we hit the jackpot at a Matthews wine shop last week.


Typically, if you're lucky you might find one shelf of Austrian wine, but here we found a whole section!


Most of the wines were from Niederösterreich (Lower Austria, the state that surrounds Vienna), including several from Krems.


Of course, seeing all this wine makes me want to go back to Austria . . .  now!!!

Unfortunately, I won't be making any trips across the pond anytime soon. Guess I'll have to console myself with an occasional glass of Grüner Veltliner or maybe try something new (to me) like the Blauer Zweigelt. At least I know where I can find it now. :-)
