It’s spring – finally!!! The grass is growing, and the Grüner is flowing! Or at least it should be.
The grassy, white peppery white wine from Austria is my spring go-to. Here are three good bottles to grab!
fred loimer lois 2015
Freshly cut, yo! This is where you can really get a handle on that Grüner grass. So light and frizzy, puts a little lift in your step – just like spring! We had this guys sparkling Grüner at Aldo Sohm’s bar a little while ago and it was awesome, so keep your eye out for Loimer when you’re looking for good Grüner. $18
laurenz v charming gruner 2014
Get another whiff of that green green grass! More grass, a little more body, and a hint of white pepper. Feels like the more mature version of Grüner. $30
weingut stadt krems 2015
Hints of lemon, yellow apple and generally deeper fruits here with more body but still lots of fizzy fun on the tongue. And fun fact: This winery was originally built to make money for the hospital in Krems in 1452. $15
