Sip of the Day

Day #[wpdts-day-of-year start=”post-created”] of the year.

Zind-Humbrecht Gewurztraminer

Today is National Wiener Schnitzel Day! This delicious dish of breaded veal cutlet has a somewhat complicated history. Its name — when translated from German — means it’s from Vienna (that’s the “Wiener” part), yet, some insist that the preparation was brought to Austria from Italy, where it’s still known as “Veal Milanese.” In light of this controversy, I decided to keep you on your toes and choose a wine pairing that is from neither Austria nor Italy, yet has a German-sounding name BUT is from France! Utterly confused? I hope so — it’ll stop you from thinking about how great a pairing this is (and it IS!) and just sit back and enjoy your dinner. Because, you ARE making Wiener Schnitzel tonight, aren’t you?

Tasting Notes

Floral aromas with a hint of rose along with elegant spice. Elegant, approachable and long on the palate.
