WEIN & CO

Moderation: Willi Klinger

Do you love Pinot Noir, preferably from Burgundy, but despair at the prices? No need to panic, because there are alternatives to the big names. These arise mainly when there is a generational change in wineries with good sites, whose wines were previously supplied to the trade and where the youngsters are now bottling their own wines. In these cases, it is still possible to get hold of well-known Villages appellations or Premiers Crus at reasonable prices.
However, climate change is also increasingly favouring the formerly cooler sites: especially the Hautes Côtes above the Côte de Beaune or Nuits-St-Georges. Or the lesser-known places such as Santenay or St. Romain, but also those that are summarised under the name Côte de Nuits Villages. This also applies to Chablis and the Beaujolais Crus.
Willi Klinger shows you 10 of his most exciting finds.

Rudolf Steiner founded biodynamics with his agriculture course 100 years ago. How can we shape the next 100 years?
As we are all aware, viniculture is currently facing major challenges in the face of climate change. Can biodynamic viticulture alone be the solution - or will it come up against its limits at some point? Can the PIWI varieties, new cultivars, and adapted vineyard and water management stand up to the new adversities? Or will biodynamics also have to think outside the box and engage with completely new methods?
Biodynamics expert Romana Echensperger, together with the attending respekt winemakers, invites you to a tasting where she will discuss the "future of viniculture" with them and other guests on the basis of sixteen selected wines. Your comments are expressly requested!

In the 1990s, many believed that Brunello was an outdated relic that was being overtaken by the Supertuscans. 30 years later, Brunello is back at the top of the Italian wine hierarchy. Willi Klinger starts with a detour to Montepulciano, shines a spotlight on the still underrated Rosso di Montalcino and demonstrates the potential of the Italian cult wine Brunello di Montalcino with six examples from different sub-zones of the appellation.
The tasting shows the style-defining flavours and complexity of the Sangiovese grape variety in its stronghold, despite the differences between the respective vineyards and the individual styles of the producers. Eric Guido summed up the 2019 vintage in Antonio Galloni's online wine magazine "Vinous": “This is the vintage we've all been waiting for.”

Not for nothing was the Pulkautal mentioned in the imperial patent as a first-class wine region as early as 1646. Together with winegrowers from the Pulkautal, Ferdinand Mayr, lecturer at the Wine Academy, will present the specialities of the Pulkautal in this masterclass.
