Observed as an Austrian speciality, wines of the St. Laurent grape hail from uncertain origins with parentage linked to Burgundy’s Pinot Noir grape. St. Laurent grapes are named for the patron saint of the poor, St. Lawrence of Rome, whose feast day on August 10th coincides with the ripening of St. Laurent grapes. In Austria, this variety is usually paired with roasted meats and game birds, however, we find that it is a versatile partner with everything from babaghanoush to dim sum.
