Saturdays with Skurnik: Dönnhoff + Wallner
February 24, 2018 3pm - 6pm
Dönnhoff + Wallner
Next in our "Saturdays with Skurnik" tasting series we will be visiting wines from two oft overlooked regions in the Teutonic wine world. First we will visit the compelling wines from Dönnhoff, a 200 year old family estate focused on cultivating Riesling from Erste Lage (Grand Cru) vineyard sites in the Nahe region of Germany.
Next we visit the tiny region of Sud-Burgenland in Austria. Gerhard Wallner makes earthy reds out of native varietals. He has the only St. Laurent vineyards in the region though Blaufrankisch makes up a significant amount of his production. His wines represent great value and expression of that little corner of Austria.
