We can’t travel right now, but wine can still take us places! And it will: thanks to our new Instagram Live Video series, you can discover the cellars and vineyards of our winemaking partners in crime around the world. Because we all want to catch up with our friends & enjoy their beautiful places, despite being momentarily grounded in our US homes. Take this, corona.
So, on Wednesday 4/22 at 8:30 pm EST (5:30 pm PST), jump on board of our Insta Live Virtual Wine Travel co. and relish the very special company & libations of Stephanie & Eduard Tscheppe-Esselböck, the impossibly talented & good-looking couple behind the Burgenland powerhouse Gut Oggau.
Steffi & Eddi will stay up late for your kind indulgence (Europe is 6 hours ahead of USA) and chat with our friend Lena Mattson, the GM & Wine Director of Brooklyn’s June Wine Bar who loves Austrian wine maybe even more than we do. Which is hard, btw. They’ll talk winemaking, biodynamics or what are S+E up to in those interesting times. They’ll show us their lovely Oggau HQ (warning: you’ll wanna move there) and some seriously picturesque vineyard sights, answer your questions and, obviously, also drink wine!
So make sure to join, preferably with a member of their congenial wine family – we’ll be tasting Atanasius, Theodora, Josephine and Mechtild, but it’s really up to you. You can enjoy wines from the current release that has just hit New York – list of stockists below. Or pop any older Gut Oggau bottle you’ve been hiding in your pantry for that special occasion ’cause this is one. Or just come as you are and enjoy beautiful people sharing their love for wine across the Atlantic. So close, no matter how far. (OK, time to end this blog post before it gets even heavier with 90’s lyrics references.)
Start your Gut Oggau bottle hunt and see you on Jenny&Francois Insta account, next Wednesday night!
Current Gut Oggau release available via (please shop responsibly):
If you are a shop/restaurant owner and would like to participate (it’s gonna be fun!) and get your hands on some Gut Oggau, reach out to your J&F rep now. Limited qty available, as always with those Burgenland darlings.
