Tutored Artisan Wines Tasting
Artisan Wines Tasting with winemaker Franz Schneider
Tuesday 12th July 6.30pm sharp
Next Tuesday at the shop we host Franz Schneider, founder, owner and winemaker of Artisan Wines, who will lead a tutored tasting of his wines imported by SVS. Franz’s estate lies at Halbturn in the northern part of Burgenland just east of the Neusiedlersee, the huge shallow lake at the far eastern edge of Austria, south-east of Vienna and near the Hungarian border. Here, in the Pannonian climate zone, grapes benefit from lovely sunny conditions, but the summer heat is moderated by the expanse of the steppe lake. This is Austria’s premier region for red grapes, and Franz will be introducing three of his reds, plus his well-oaked blend of Grauburgunder (Pinot Gris) and Chardonnay; and the tasting will finish with his late harvest Weischriesling, a delectable example of the style for which the Neusiedlersee is rightly famed.
In addition there will be more Austrian whites from Sax Twins in the Kamptal open to taste.
This tutored tasting is free, but It’s vital to let us know if you plan to attend. All wines in the tasting will be discounted by at least 10%.
