Matthias Marchesani brings his wines to Toronto for a tasting at The Vintage Conservatory.

Dürnberg’s Matthias Marchesani brings his fascinating range of Austrian wines to Toronto for an informal tasting at The Vintage Conservatory.

While it would be fair criticism to say that almost every other week seems to be Austrian Wine Week at Good Food Revolution, there’s very good reason for our continual coverage of the wines from this part of the world. We feel that Austria is currently producing some of the very best value AND premium wines right now, and we just wish that the general wine-drinking populace had more exposure to so many of these excellent bottles.

Case in point, Dürnberg, a producer from Austria’s beautiful and much-underrated Weinviertel region. Having previously recommended their Rabenstein Grüner Veltliner, this time we sit down with Dürnberg’s Matthias Marchesani to find out a little more about what they get up to up there in northeastern Austria.

We highly recommend that you keep an eye out for more of this winery’s terrific wines.
