20 something Alto Adige wineries come to Denver (Monday 22), Washington D.C (Wednesday 24) and finally New York (Thursday 25) in April for Alto Adige Wines 'Discover Italian Wines at Their Peak' Grand Tasting Tour 2013.
Since it is a trade and media only event, it takes place in the afternoon. It remains to be seen whether my concierge work schedule will allow me to attend.
Winery Line Up in New York is:
Abbazia di Novacella
Cantina Valle Isarco
Erste + Neue
Franz Haas Winery
San Michele Appiano
St. Pauls Winery
Viticoltori Alto Adige
I don't think a hay bath is part of the offerings.
I have to thank Ines Giovanett of Castelfeder, one of the wineries present, for sending me invitation to attend.
Among Castelfeder white wines is Kerner Lahn, 100 % Kerner (a cross between Trollinger and Riesling) produced in South Tyrol since 1970's.
If you are a red wine drinker, have you tried a Lagrein?
If I can make it to New York tasting, I will be happy to see Elena Walch and Peter Zemmer again.
