My "Grüner Veltliner"

Winery Türk "Edition Witzigmann" Austria-Kremstal

 Eckart Witzigmann and Franz Türk: 

„Mein Grüner Veltliner“ is a gourmand type! 

 For a long time, the chef of the century Eckart Witzigmann and top winemaker Franz Türk tinkered with it and tried it, now "Mein Grüner Veltliner" is filled and ready to please many wine lovers. 

Eckart Witzigmann and Franz Türk have realized together in this wine what they particularly like about a Grüner Veltliner. It combines everything that makes a versatile food companion. From fine starters to vegetables, pasta, risotto and fish to white meat such as poultry, pork or veal - "Mein Grüner Veltliner" offers perfect culinary enjoyment. A wine that is itself a gourmet. 

The work of two perfectionists: 

The 2015 vintage proved to be ideal for the start of this cooperation. Thanks to many hours of sunshine in connection with the foresighted care of the vines, fully ripe, healthy grapes could be harvested and selected for the special requirements of "Mein Grüner Veltliner". The wine also shows profile in terms of origin and could not be more typical of the grape variety. In a seductive way it combines the aromas of fragrant herbs, juicy fruits and spicy minerality. Freshness and drinking canimo are complemented by delicate fruit melt and complete this all-round harmonious wine experience - the work of two perfectionists. 

To the 75th Birthday:

For many years the chef of the century has been appreciating the wines of Franz Türk and in particular his Grüner Veltliner. Over time, the idea of "Mein Grüner Veltliner" matured in both of them. On the occasion of Eckart Witzigmann's 75th birthday, this delightful wine creation is available for the first time.
