KeeperCollection @keepercoll: @justintimsit How did you get your start working in #wine? #SommChat

Justin Timsit @justintimsit: @keepercoll #sommchat I took a huge chance moving the east coast, and decided to pursue something I was passionate about & never looked back

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: Q fr #SommChat #Somm @justintimsit What do you think makes #Austrian #GrunerVeltliner so #foodfriendly? #SommChat

Justin Timsit @justintimsit: @keepercoll #sommchat i think intensity of flavor, saline minerality and a bright freshness that complements various flavors in cooking

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: .@justintimsit Tell us about winning the #Austrian #Wine #Sommelier competition @AustrianwineUSA what was it like and Congrats #SommChat

Justin Timsit @justintimsit: @keepercoll @AustrianwineUSA #sommchat it was an incredible honor. Competing with some of NY's finest & my peers made it intense & special

Austrian Wine USA @AustrianwineUSA: And we were so honored to have you! (all the way from #Philly at the time!) #SommChat #AustriaUncorked

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: @demilove gr8 2 C you back on #SommChat drinking #Austrian #wine to honor our #SommsUF VIP Sponsor @AustrianwineUSA lk fwd 2 UR Qs

Stephanie Miskew CSW @StephanieMiskew: @justintimsit What did you do before #wine & what inspired you to get into the #wine business? #SommChat @keepercoll

@StephanieMiskew @keepercoll #sommchat I was in the fashion industry, and my father inspired me from a young age to learn about wine...

Justin Timsit @justintimsit: @StephanieMiskew @keepercoll #sommchat Saw my first vineyards in Napa while on a SF road trip selling dress shirts, and was hugely inspired

Douglas Trapasso @demilove: @justintimsit @StephanieMiskew @keepercoll - Do you see similarities between fashion and food/wine, I mean, just as businesses? - #SommChat

Justin Timsit @justintimsit: @demilove @StephanieMiskew @keepercoll #sommlife absolutely. Fashion is about confidence, making people feel comfortable about style...

Justin Timsit @justintimsit: @demilove @StephanieMiskew @keepercoll #sommchat ...& sharing wine with guests is about making them feel comfortable and confident tableside

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: .@justintimsit What makes #Austrian #wines distinct? #SommChat Cc: @AustrianwineUSA

Justin Timsit @justintimsit: @keepercoll @AustrianwineUSA #sommchat the ability of various grapes to show the transparency of their site, and distinct characteristics

Douglas Trapasso @demilove: @keepercoll - Were there a lot of Austrian wines on your restaurant list when you entered #AustriaUncorked ? - #SommChat

Justin Timsit @justintimsit: @demilove @keepercoll #sommchat yes I've always been a supporter of Austrian wine as one of the world's great wine regions @AustrianwineUSA

Laura Birnbaum @laurabirn: @justintimsit @keepercoll What do you think the most underrated Austrian grapes are for the US market? #SommChat #WW

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: @laurabirn great 2CU on #SommChat today and thanks for the questions on #Austrian #wine so all can learn - keep them coming 4 @justintimsit

Justin Timsit @justintimsit: @laurabirn @keepercoll #sommChat Gelber Muskateller and serious Sauvignon Blanc in Steiermark are 2 grapes to watch in an emerging region

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: Q fr #SommChat shy peep: when U google UR name a child actor pops up were you only in fashion or acting too @justintimsit

Justin Timsit @justintimsit: @keepercoll #sommchat yes it's true. I was a child actor in a past life. #mightymorphinpowerrangers

Barbara Waxenegger @bwaxenegger: .@justintimsit What do you enjoy most when being in Austria - especially in the winegrowing regions? #SommChat @keepercoll @AustrianwineUSA

Justin Timsit @justintimsit: @bwaxenegger @keepercoll @AustrianwineUSA #sommchat I really enjoy the country side, and putting on my lederhosen so I blend in ;)

Austrian Wine USA @AustrianwineUSA: You should join us on #sommchat right now @BirgittaSamavar ! #AustrianWine

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: .@corkhoarder thanks for #SommChat S/O to @keepercoll and @justintimsit what are some of UR fav #Austrian #wines?

Miranda Waldron @mirandawaldronc: @justintimsit As a #winenewbie, what is a good way to approach a #Sommelier conversation in a restaurant? #SommChat

Justin Timsit @justintimsit: @mirandawaldronc #sommchat Always feel comfortable asking questions to find something you like within your budget. As sommeliers the more…

Justin Timsit @justintimsit: @mirandawaldronc #sommchat ...we know about your tastes and interests, the better experience we can provide. Don't be afraid to put the…

Justin Timsit @justintimsit: @mirandawaldronc #sommchat ..and just have a conversation with the sommelier instead. Those experiences usually turn out best!

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: Q fr #SommChat #Somm @justintimsit What R major #terroir differences between #Wachau and #Kamptal for #GrunerVeltliner? #Austria #SommChat

Justin Timsit @justintimsit: @keepercoll #sommchat the Wachau and its proximity to the Danube tend to produce wines with fuller, richer flavors, where botrytis is common

Justin Timsit @justintimsit: @keepercoll #sommchat I always find the wines of Kamptal to show a leaner profile with a more saline finish (even the Reserve DAC versions)

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: Q fr #SommChat #Somm @justintimsit Pls describe taste profiles of #Austrian #Zweigelt & best #food #pairings? #wineandfoodpairings #SommChat

Justin Timsit @justintimsit: @keepercoll #sommchat Zweigelt tends to show bright red-fruited flavors, w/vibrant acidity & moderate tannins, producing juicy wines....

Justin Timsit @justintimsit: @keepercoll #sommchat I like to pair Zweigelt with dishes suited for Pinot Noir and Gamay. Lighter proteins, even fish when grilled skin-on

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: Q fr shy #SommChat peep: @justintimsit Can you recommend some affordable #Austrian #wines? #SommChat

Justin Timsit @justintimsit: @keepercoll #sommchat Domane Wachau produces consistent & affordable wines every vintage, always very classic expressions, Fred Loimer too

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: Q fr #SommChat #Somm @justintimsit What are main taste profile differences btw #Austrian & #German #Riesling? #SommChat

Justin Timsit @justintimsit: @keepercoll #sommchat different structure to start. Austrian Riesling at DAC level has emphasis on dry wines, German Riesling tends to…

Justin Timsit @justintimsitz: @keepercoll #sommchat ...show lighter body, lower alc even when fully dry. Mostly slate in Germany vs. primary rock/schist in Austria

Kaki Miller @kaki_miller: Hi @justintimsit! As a student on a budget, what are some good inexpensive white and red #wines you recommend? #SommChat

Justin Timsit @justintimsit: @kaki_miller #sommchat look to regions that have a lower cost of production. Greece has incredible wines at top level for under $20 retail.

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: @justintimsit Any unique #foodandwine pairings you’ve enjoyed recently with #Austrian #Wine? #SommChat

Justin Timsit @justintimsit: @keepercoll #sommchat yes! Ruster Ausbruch from Heidi Schrock & Moroccan Lamb Tagine w/ apricots, & honey sauce. Atypical but delicious!

Austrian Wine USA @AustrianwineUSA: Great example that #SweetWines aren’t just for dessert! #sommchat #liquidgold

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: Q fr #SommChat #Somm @justintimsit Please describe taste profiles of #Austrain #Blaufrankish @AustrianwineUSA

Justin Timsit @justintimsit: @keepercoll @AustrianwineUSA #sommchat I would compare it most closely to lighter versions Syrah. W/ age, it can drink like older Hermitage

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: Q fr #SommChat #Somm @justintimsit What do you think makes #Austrian #GrunerVeltliner so #foodfriendly?

Justin Timsit @justintimsit: @keepercoll #sommchat freshness and salinity, and intense flavor. I love the spice quality of GV & what it can add to a dish #asparaguswine

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: Q fr #SommChat #Somm how often do U chg Ur @GramercyTavern #wine list & what is biggest reason 2 chg @justintimsit

Justin Timsit @justintimsit: @keepercoll @GramercyTavern #sommchat as often as the menu changes, sometimes every day. Depends on what @chefmikeanthony is working on!

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: @justintimsit Are #Austrian #wines made to drink young or can they age? Can you give some guidelines? #SommChat

Justin Timsit @justintimsit: @keepercoll #sommchat they age brilliantly. '89 Alzinger Loibenberg Smaragd for 60 euros was one of the best I've ever had…

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: Q fr #SommChat #Somm can U tell us anything about the 2016 #Austrian #wine Vintage/harvest @justintimsit

Justin Timsit @justintimsit: @keepercoll #sommchat many producers had reduced yields from frost in 2016 unfortunately, but top producers will still make great wine

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: Q fr shy #SommChat peep Have you heard any of the #Austrian #winemakers talk abt being affected by Climate Chg and if so how @justintimsit

Justin Timsit @justintimsit: @keepercoll #sommchat yes many producers are having to pick earlier to maintain restraint and balance. Canopy & vineyard management critical

Lauren Harrison @13lharrison: #SommChat As a beginner where can I find easy to read material to learn about #Austrian #wine ?

Justin Timsit @justintimsit: @13lharrison #sommchat The Wines of Austria by Stephen Brook is a great one. @AustrianwineUSA has an incredible website too!

Austrian Wine USA @AustrianwineUSA: #SommChat @13lharrison Your best, free resource is bit.ly/2j9AZRc ! Also a great book by @StephenPBrook published last year

Barbara Waxenegger @bwaxenegger: @justintimsit @13lharrison @AustrianwineUSA austrianwine.com, you´ll find everything on Austrian quality grapes and wine regions

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: @justintimsit Any new #Austrian #wines you’ve tried recently to mention? #SommChat

Justin Timsit @justintimsit: @keepercoll #sommchat Martin Muthenthaler in Spitz (Wachau) is a producer to watch. Used to grow grapes for Domane Wachau, & was...

Justin Timsit @justintimsit: @keepercoll #sommchat ...encouraged by Peter Veyder Malberg to start making his own wines. They are brilliant! Also Manfred Tement in Styria

Lauren Harrison @13lharrison: #SommChat as a beginner should I start by tasting #austrian #grunerveltliner or #riesling and why?

Justin Timsit @justintimsit: @13lharrison #sommchat great question. Both are important to taste. I would start with Gruner since it is the most planted grape

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: q fr shy #SommChat peep: @justintimsit Any advice for someone trying to get into the #wine industry? #SommChat

Justin Timsit @justintimsit: @keepercoll #sommchat go for it. It's the one industry where "study time" can be highly enjoyable, if you know what i mean ;)
