An oldie but goodie. You betta WACHAU

The following blog is another old blog I am bringing back from Cueva Bar's vault. Timewise is not synchronized. I wrote this blog right before summer about two years ago before the world turned upside down. Also, this post reminds me of the delicious Austrian wines I can get from Tami Wong.


Today I am sharing details about a new Austrian wine I feel very excited about.

Summer is upon us but San Diego lingers in a mix of all the other seasons. Isn't it so? Today it seemed as though the sun was coming out. The warm rays of the sun were quickly cooled with a spring-like breeze that made the feeling of being alive quite comfortable, almost as if I was flying above Domäne Wachau (WARNING: fasten your seat belts before clicking on DOMÄNE WACHAU) in Austria where one of the wines we're featuring this coming Saturday comes from. Check out these cool picks that I didn't take but are available on google when you search for Domäne Wachau.

Have you been to one of Cueva Bar's Wine Club wine tastings? Whether you're a member or not, click here to reserve your spot for this coming Saturday, June 8th at 3 PM before we sell out. The tasting costs only $5 and it's good for 4, 2 oz tastings of the wines on the picture below (scroll left).

For the month of June we're featuring the following:

Domaine Wachau Grüner Veltliner Federspiel 2017 from Austria, a Grenache Rosé from Kitá Winery out of Santa Ynez Valley, Stefan Bauer Zweigelt also from Austria, and Eira Dos Mouros Red Blend from Ribeiro Spain.
