Live Austrian Wine Adventure This May

by Tim Elliott on April 5, 2006

Hot on the heels of Lenn’s announcement of tasting wines from all 50 States, Beau from Basic Juice is doing him one better by blogging his way through Austria this May and June. Better yet, Beau will be sending back audio for me to build special editions of Winecast around during his journey. Expect to uncover the secrets of Grüner Veltliner and other interesting, if not obscure, facts from this little explored Old World wine region. As Beau says in his press release, this is “not your father’s wine tour”:

“The Live Austrian Wine Adventure (LAWA) hits the Worldwide Web from May 15th, through June 21st, 2006. Basic Juice will broadcast daily from Austria’s wine country. Beau Jarvis, proprietor of Basic Juice, plans to publish his experiences across the diverse country of Austria. He will serve up the dish on Austria’s cuisine scene, pen tales from Lake Neusiedl, explore Vienna’s vibrant wine bars, scale the Wachau’s terraced slopes and post breathtaking photos of Styria – Austria’s Tuscany. But wait; there’s more! Jarvis will also podcast his interviews with some of the most interesting and eccentric personalities in Austria’s wine community; including wunderkind vintners and a wine priest.”
