Grüner Veltliner

Grüner Veltliner (spelled Gruener when the umlaut is not present and also known as Weissgipfler, Manhardsrebe Grüner Muskateller) is the most widely planted grape in Austria, making up for 1/3 of the country's wine production. 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.

  • Greg, don't even read this!Yesterday I hosted a pinot noir event.  It was a blind tasting of three BC and one California.  Talk about getting out of the box.  For me this is tantamount to cross-dressing.  It started because Chester introduced me to the Kettle Valley "Hayman" reserve Pinot last year.  I really liked it, so when I found one (83 ca...

  • Weingut Martinshof 'Zum Martin Sepp' Grüner Veltliner 2013


    Really like the nose on this wine. Melon, mikan, fresh cut grass, pear, cream soda and a hint of lychee. The palate, on the other hand, is less interesting but still nice if simple. Would be great on a warm summer day. 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...
