Luxury London food store, Fortnum & Mason, are hosting a wine tasting event dedicated exclusively to austrian wines. 

The focus for the September 2011 tasting hosted by Fortnum & Mason will be: The Outstanding Whites and Reds of Austria.

The tasting will be held at the luxury department store on: Thursday, 29th September, 6.15 – 8pm.

Fortnum & Mason has long been a supporter of Austrian wines. They have bottled Hirtzberger’s Gruner Veltiner, and Feiler-Artinger’s Ruster Ausbruch under their own label for the past 5 years, and these, along with some of their favourite wines from Wachau and Burgenland will be showcased on the evening.

Austria is now considered to be producing some of the world’s greatest wines from indigenous varieties such as Gruner Veltliner and Blaufränkisch that are beloved by sommeliers the world over.

Sylvia Prieler from Prieler will be attending to show her outstanding Pinot Blanc and Blaufränkischs,
Pittnauer will present their outstanding Blaufränkisch and St Laurent, and Weingut Schloss Gobelsberg
will unveil their exceptional Gruner Veltliners.

Additionally wines from Knoll, Prager, Polz, Moric and Hirtzberger will also be included for what will be a fascinating evening. The oustanding whites and reds of Austria will show that there is indeed more to life than Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Tickets cost £35 to attend which are refunded per 12 bottle purchase. To reserve your place, please contact the Fortnum and Mason Wine Team on 020 7973 4136 or email wineevents@fortnumandmason.co.uk.
