Please join us to welcome two of Austria’s leading biodynamic wineries back to Toronto, and taste through a lineup of their wines. On Friday, November 11 from 5-8pm we are tasting with Wieninger and Hajszan Neumann export manager Alfons Wimmer, at Blue Door Wine Shop.

With a name like Fritz Wieninger, you have to trust wine/wein/Wien is in his blood. Fritz is a pioneer of the New Vienna wine movement, combining modernity and progress with the traditions of the region and of his family, who have been making wine for over 100 years. Fritz is the winemaker for two Viennese wineries: Wieninger, and Hajszan Neumann. Hajszan Neumann is Fritz’ natural project, where he has greater flexibility to experiment with low-to-no intervention winemaking techniques. Both wineries are certified biodynamic; Fritz is the co-president of RESPEKT with Fred Loimer, as well as a founding member and chairman of the Wien Wein growers association. The vineyards and wineries are in the heart of Vienna, Wien as the locals call it, and the only city in the world where vineyards flourish inside city limits. Steeped in history, the Nussberg vineyard sites house some of the oldest vines in Austria.

This drop-in tasting is open to the first 40 people, free of charge, with a suggested donation for Grapes for Humanity.

All wines will be available for purchase by the bottle.
