S2 E6: High On A Hill Was A Lonely Vineyard Lay-ee-odl-lay-ee-odl-lay-hee-hoo 🎶

 
 

The best thing about the cave at The Mount Edgcumbe is that the acoustics are perfect for singing. Singing The Sound of Music, to be precise. It's also great for drinking wine! And this week we're talking about Austrian wine. Prost!

WANKIEST WINE REVIEW OF THE WEEK

Simon had some very expensive wines in Boston and he very much wanted you to know about it. Aren't you impressed? We aren't. 

WINESUP

Kate's pretend bestie, Amy Poehler, is directing, producing, and starring in a film called Wine Country coming to a Netflix. We honestly can't wait and think we should have a BB viewing party. Kate will bring the popcorn! 


THE DRINKING

Whilst discussing the ins-and-outs (and ups-and-downs) of the Austrian wine trade, we drank a Sepp Zweigelt 2015 from Austria that we bought at Thind Wine Merchants in Sevenoaks for £10.99. We also enjoyed a RABL Pinot Blanc, also from Austria, that we purchased at The Secret Cellar for £13.50. 


 

BUYING AUSTRIAN WINE?

You may notice the red and white striped tops that indicate which DAC wine region the bottle comes from. Austria has very strict wine laws, but who can blame them after that antifreeze incident?! 😱
