Join us tonight, Friday March 4 from 6-8pm at the wine store as we waltz through a few bargain Austrian wines and sample some country pate from Brooklyn Cured. Scott Bridi, founder of Brooklyn Cured will also be sampling his charcuterie at Provisions from 6-8pm.
When renowned wine importers Paul Darcy & Carlo Huber (who were profiled in the NY Times a year ago for their “exquisite” Viennese wines) parted ways with their NY distributor, a lot of their wines went on sale. We were able to pick up a few of these wines and are happy to offer them at a third off their original prices. We have limited amounts of these wines so first come, first served.
Weingut Christ Weissburgunder der Vollmondwein 2007 ($19)
Available elsewhere for $28, this delicious white is pure and peachy with a stony finish. Weissburgunder, which is what Pinot Blanc is called in Austria and Germany, commands a premium price and develops ideally in the relatively cooler climes of northern Europe.
Zahel Komposition 2008 ($18)
Available elsewhere for $25, this delightful red blend of Blaufrankisch, Zweigelt and St. Laurent has a slightly violet tinge, intense cherry flavors and light tannins.
