Welcome to our next installment of #WinephabetStreet. In this series, Debbie Gioquindo and I will be working our way through the wine world by way of the alphabet. Each month we will take the next letter in the alphabet and learn the characteristics and history of the grape, as well as suggested wine pairings. So uncork, unscrew or saber that bottle and connect with us as we chat, laugh and drink wine all in a laid back atmosphere.
G is for Grüner Veltliner
Grüner Veltliner is a dry white wine that grows almost only in Austria. It is known for its flavors of green pepper and lime and can be considered an exotic alternative to Sauvignon Blanc.
In this episode we find out that the region the grape is named for is now actually part of Italy, that it adapts easily to many soil types and can tolerate higher crop levels and that it pairs with the typically difficult asparagus and artichoke!
