#portland THIS IS HAPPENING TONIGHT! Don’t miss it! Repost from @divisionwines using @RepostRegramApp – Malat Wine Flight with Michael Malat tomorrow, Tuesday, July 23rd, from 6 to 9 pm ? Michael Malat’s family has farmed the vineyards in the Kremstal since the late 1700s. It’s a special place that benefits from the moderating influence of the Danube river, a rich variation in soil types along with warm days and cool nights which provide necessary ripening and the critical freshness of acidity. If you are to understand the quiet magic of Grüner Veltliner, the Kremstal is one of the places you must go. Michael took on the primary responsibilities of the winery in 2008 from his father, Gerald, after adding studies in Vienna and abroad to years in his family’s own vineyards and cellar. These are some of the great wines of Austria, and Michael is an energetic, charming ambassador for the region. We will be pouring three wines from Malat, including their skin contact wine, a Riesling, and a Grüner Veltliner sourced from a single vineyard site. The flight of three wines from Malat will be $15, and will be offered from 6 to 9 pm. The story behind Malat spans nine generations, with a keen eye on the future piloted by Michael. This is a unique opportunity to look into Austria’s wine culture, narrated by a dynamic, young leader in the region. Please join us if you can find the time..
