Grooooooner! What a great way to teach consumers how to pronounce an otherwise intimidating grape name. Grooner is a collaboration of Monika Caha and Weingut Forstreiter - a delightfully crisp, inoffensive wine with crisp green apple and white pepper spice notes. One of the first wines to turn a lot of people on to Gruener Veltliner and at $11.99/bottle... who can blame them?
