Winning Wines: Go Austria!

Women’s Day magazine recently published an article by Kimberly Fusaro entitled, “Ten Winning Wines Under $15,” which can be found here.

The wines selected are described as Women’s Day’s “picks for the finest affordable sips,” and the article includes delicious food-pairing ideas for gourmet summer meals. Each wine spotlighted has a corresponding recipe or two, which is a neat addition to a wine review.

Of the ten wines featured, three are Austrian and of those three, two are widely-grown varietals in Austria: Grüner Veltliner and Zweigelt.

The Austrian picks were Grooner Grüner Veltliner (pictured here), Zull Lust & Laune Rosé, and Loimer Zweigelt Fred.

I noticed in the comments section of this article that two readers asked why Yellow Tail was not listed, especially considering most are value-priced. Personally, I welcome the fact no Yellow Tail was included on this list. For example, featuring those Austrian wines opens the door of an entirely new wine region to many people. Women’s Day reaches a huge audience. Inexpensive wines don’t always have to be Yellow Tail or similar. Believe me. I love their Cabernet-Merlot blend. But I think it’s more interesting to try something else occasionally and experience the beauty of another wine’s terroir.

What’s best about the Women’s Day article is that the wines presented are affordable, so readers might be more willing to step outside their Australian comfort zone and visit the the Austrian wine world of Grüner Veltliner, Zweigelt and other delightful varietals.
