Staff Pick Notes

This Zweigelt red wine from Austria is the the full package, beautiful award winning design and label, a delicious well balanced wine and it comes in a handy screw top liter sized bottle. Zweigelt is the most widely planted red wine grape in Austria. Even though you may have never heard of the grape, there is nothing weird or funky here. Easy to drink on its own or with a variety of foods from goat cheese to zesty salads and grilled sausage. Berry fruit, light-bodied with a clean mineral driven finish. Enjoy with a slight chill at your next picnic or rooftop party!
