–This is part of an ongoing series about the European Wine Bloggers’ Conference–
Pretty busy around the winery so I haven’t had time to write much about the EWBC. But here is some unedited video of an exclusive winery and vineyard tour we did at Iby in the Burgenland.
The Austrian Wine press trips had the great idea of splitting us all up into small groups and sending us off with different winemakers. We all had totally different experiences and we’ll all get to write about them differently. Very very fun. Plus I just love meeting the producer and tasting the wines with him or her. It’s the way wine was meant to be shared and it’s a welcome break from these long table tasting marathons of 50 different Blaufränkisch in 60 minutes. *gasp*
I also enjoyed the excellent company of three lovely ladies on this trip. Olga Mosina (a Russian wine blogger), Onneca (a Barcelona punk who I believe makes or represents a delicious cava), and Mariëlla Beukers who has already published her thoughts in Dutch. But there’s also a translate button for English.
More to come later when I have time to write write write type type type. For now, let it be known, the wines were delicious.Tags: austrian vineyard, austrian wine, Blaufränkisch, burgenland, iby, visit a vineyard, visit a winery
