Although current circumstances are preventing us from physically traveling out of the country, we’re being creative about how we can learn about and experience other cultures all while staying safe at home. Let us picture ourselves in the German-speaking alpine country of Austria, a country with some seriously first-class wines. Rieslings and Grüner Veltliner are names you’ll recognize first, as these fresh, fruity whites are showing up on more and more prestigious wine lists. But, with 35 approved grape varieties there’s much more wine diversity than people realize in this country. Make a hearty meal of schnitzel and get ready to pour a glass of one of the following wines to accompany it.
