Sipping Notes for the Season

Lacey Rozinksy, wine director of the Four Seasons' Garden Bar in NYC, recommends Austria's native Gruner Veltliner for the summer season!

Why drink Austrian wines?
Rozinsky: They're really popular, especially in the summer because they're not overpowering and they're really refreshing.

Describe the wines.
Rozinsky: Austrian wines are clean and crisp and have subtle flavors ranging from herbal to fruit forward. They're a relaxed kind of wine.

Do they pair well with particular foods?
Rozinsky: They're the perfect picnic wines. Your really don't need a lot of food - a salad Nicoise, sushi or a young, vibrant cheese.
