Have you had Austrian wine? The names of the wines and especially the regions can be challenging to pronounce, yet I’ve really come to enjoy wines. To quote a term from a Master Sommelier, they are wines you can really "geek out" about.
So if you are in NYC, you may be interested to know that on May 4th, from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., Austria Uncorked, will feature top Austrian wines paired with cuisine from NYC’s best restaurants on the Tribeca Rooftop, which has incredibly cool views of the Hudson, Empire State Building, SOHO and Tribeca.
Hundreds of Austrian wines will be available including several from the much-anticipated 2010 vintage along with older vintage wines from varietals such as Grüner Veltliner, Blaufränkisch and Riesling.
Proceeds from the event will benefit GrowNYC’s “Learn It, Grow It, Eat It” program, a local education program which empowers teens to take control of their health through hands-on gardening, nutrition education, outreach, and managing a community farm-stand.
