Eastern Europe, the historical birthplace of wine, is reemerging as a powerhouse region to watch. Offering everything from sparkling wines, to floral whites, to funky orange wines, to light reds, to dessert wines, there is something for everyone.

Join us as we taste through a flight of wines, focusing on the indigenous grapes and typical expressions in Austria, Georgia, Slovenia, Croatia, and Hungary. We’ll also explore the history of winemaking and the unusual techniques used in the production of these wines. You’ll walk away with a better understanding of how to select Eastern European wines, how to decipher their names and labels, and why they should have a permanent place in your drinking repertoire.
