It is not often we can confidently point to a country's "most famous" producer, but when it comes to Austria's F.X. Pichler, we're on pretty safe ground.
And if you haven't had the fortune to taste his wines yet, this weekend is your big chance.
Join us on Saturday from noon to 4pm for our weekly tasting and sale featuring the incomparable Wachau wines of F.X. Pichler—3 Rieslings and 3 Grüner Veltliners that take purity and terroir expressiveness to new heights.
Within the country's relatively small winemaking community, no single name is more synonymous with great Austrian wine than F.X. Pichler.
Best known for crafting wines that reflect the year, soil and special microclimate of the Wachau region, Pichler coaxes subtle nuances out of every vineyard so that the multi-layered uniqueness of his dry white wines can be experienced through taste and smell.
Better yet, Pichler's wines continue to develop in the bottle, even after a few years.
So while you can certainly savor these highly rated wines now, you can also stow them away in your cellar with the confidence that they'll be even better after a few years on the shelf.
This weekend, we'll pour 6 wines—3 Grüner Veltliners and 3 dry Rieslings—that display a cross-section of Pichler's best terroirs and showcase the heights of purity and expressiveness he consistently achieves.
