It’s easy to see why Hai Tran is one of the most respected Sommeliers in the USA. We had the pleasure to meet him at #vievinum2018 in #vienna just a few weeks ago. If you want to learn about #austrianwine and get a credible, first-hand view of what was hot at the fair, check out his #instagramfeed as it is stocked with posts full of detailed info and insight like this one. Repost from @sommsayhai using @RepostRegramApp – THERMENREGION • Just south of Vienna lies this fascinating viticultural zone that is home to two of Austria’s fascinating indigenous varietals, Zierfandler (like a Sauvignon Blanc/Chardonnay hybrid) and Rotgipfler (think Gewurztraminer/Marsanne/Roussanne hybrid). I was excited to try wines from this area as it’s rare to find in the US. I hope to see more in the near future as we tasted some solid wines from the producers at @vievinum. Two standouts for me were Johanneshof Reinisch and Freigut Thallern, one of the oldest continuously operated wineries in Austria established in 1141. #GetSomm #austrianwine #vievinum #vievinum2018 #thermenregion #rotgipfler #zierfandler #reinisch #thallern
