Grüner Veltliner

Although the exact origins of the grape are unknown, records of its existence date as far back as Roman times. One parent is known to be Traminer, the other remains unknown. Gruener Veltiner is indigenous to Austria, though it is now being grown throughout the world including New Zealand and Oregon. Although Gruener Veltliner is grown throughout the country, it is predominantly known from the Wachau, Kamptal, Kremstal, Weinvertel and Wagram regions. Gruener Veltliner is extremely susceptible to its terroir taking on the soil and climate characteristics of each region dramatically.

  • I like all kinds of oysters.  But you can also have them with Gruner Veltliner, a nimble Viognier, Albarino, and (yes, it's from the Loire) lots of Muscadet.  Somebody here probably had them with a great dry Riesling from Oregon or Alsace and will chime in.  Read More

  • Yeah! It is oyster season in my town. Pick a peck in about 30 min. Best oysters in the world. No bias, no kidding. Wine = anything that is white, dry, French, and Loire or Champagne with an exceptional Chardonnay or Chablis admitted, meeting of course the French criteria. Notice the "spikes".  You will never see those on a restaurant oyster. The... Read More

  • They are now producing wonderful ones in the Finger Lakes region of upstate NY! Particularly the Dr. Konstantin Frank winery. I did a blind tasting of Gruners from Austria vs. the Finger Lakes ones, and the 2009 Dr. Frank was guessed to be from Austria by the wine savvy attendees!

Have a test planting of 50 vines in to s...
