Winebow Imports ‏@WinebowWine @Path2Wine Gr8 Q - Mainly Stainless steel BUT many producers R rediscovering the traditional large oak casks #SommChat

Winebow Imports ‏@WinebowWine @ormiga @KeeperColl yes broad range of #Gruner in #Austria but even the typical liter bottle of #Gruner can be very good #SommChat

Douglas Trapasso ‏@demilove @KeeperColl - Gruner V often fools us at our tasting group - any clues for how we can identify it? - #SommChat

Winebow Imports ‏@WinebowWine .@demilove @KeeperColl look 4 #gruner distinctive spiciness, however, it’s a lot less peppery than used 2 B lk 4 celery & radish R #SommChat

ConstanceChamberlain ‏@VinoCC @demilove @demilove .@demilove a glass of #gruner always helps with anything in life ;) especially food pairing #SommChat

Winebow Imports ‏@WinebowWine @AndyOnFarmWine famous dessert #wines R fr #Hungarian border, so furmint & Welschriesling makes some of #Austria best sweet wines #SommChat
