Our first trip to Austin, TX in October of 2016 left us excited and encouraged for the great passion of Austrian wines found there and in awe of the tight-knit sommelier community that has nestled in this southern tip of the United States.
Naturally, when Keeper Collection approached us with the opportunity to become a VIP sponsor of the upcoming Somms Under Fire competition, we just couldn’t resist!
Austrian Wine will present to 100+ VIPS at the competition in a mini-vertical series with special wines from across our most famous varieties presented by the winner of our Austria Uncorked: NY’s Best Somm 2016, Justin Timsit, now of Gramercy Tavern.
For more information on Somms Under Fire, please visit their website.
We will be live tweeting from the VIP tasting and the event so stay tuned to @AustrianWineUSA on Sunday, January 29th to learn more about what we’re tasting and what Justin has to say about our favorite winemaking country.
The fan favorite of the competition will also visit Austria in May of this year for the Austrian Wine Summit 2017.
May the best sommelier win!
