For Americans, there are aspects of Europe that can be beautifully distracting such as the ceiling of the room in which a serious wine tasting happens at the Palais Niederösterreich. Prior to the start of the #vievinum fair, invitees of the #austrianwinemarketingboard are treated to a tasting featuring up to 20 flights of wine from #austria. This year’s theme was #sauvignonblanc and #Pinot varieties (Gris, Blanc, Noir). There were 18 flights in all with some spectacular examples especially from the 2015 Pinot Noir Reserve range. We managed to do some good research that day even though the surroundings were as delicious to the eyes as the wine was to the palate. #winetasting #austrianwine #wineflights
