The Best of Austria – Masterclass in-a-box

The WineAlign Exchange Presents: An Austrian Wine Masterclass Six-Pack

THIS OFFER IS SOLD OUT

Have you ever experienced Austrian wine country? Admired the thousand-year-old terraced vineyards scratched out of the steep rocky banks while cruising the Danube Valley? Travelled over the rolling schist and limestone hills of the Burgenland, timidly peered down the precipitous double black diamond, vine-covered slopes of Styria, or created indelible memories while sipping still-frothy new vintages at a Viennese heurige to the accompaniment of a lilting waltz? Let us go and take a visit.

Austrian Masterclass

The WineAlign Exchange is über-thrilled to offer a trip to Austria in a box: six archetypal wines, selected by unanimous assent of the WineAlign team of critics out of literally hundreds of samples tasted in Austria and at our offices. It was no hardship – quality has never been better across the entire range of styles and colours produced in this multifaceted country, and tasting was a genuine pleasure. The greatest difficulty was limiting our picks to just six.

Austrian Button

To assemble this collection, the WineAlign team first identified the country’s classic regions, grapes varieties and wine styles – what Austria does best – to give as broad a perspective as possible. We then embarked on a search for the best wine to fill each slot. Tasting through these bottles, you’ll understand why quality Austrian wine exports have risen steadily over the past thirty years. You’ll see why no serious wine bar or wine-focused restaurant in North America is without at least a listing or two of Austrian wine, and why these are some of the most food-friendly, versatile wines on the planet.

Whether you’re already intimate with the rich, millennial wine history of this country in the heart of central Europe and want to go back for a virtual visit, or keen to embark on a new vinous journey, we have painstakingly curated this mixed six-pack for you – call it an Austrian wine masterclass, and adventure, delivered to you in a box.

As with all Exchange cases, each wine is accompanied by tasting notes, recommended drink dates and food pairings. We’ve also asked some prominent Austrian chefs to provide traditional recipes, should you wish to go all the way, and we’ll include a detailed exposé of each region represented. You’ll become the expert (and why not host your own Austrian wine tasting?).

These wines are not available in Ontario and quantities are limited (but if you really love one and want more, we’ll do our best to get it for you).

This one-time offer expires on October 15th. The total price for the six-pack will be around $230 plus delivery fees. These wines are scheduled for delivery in February 2019.
