This week on In the Drink, Dorli Muhr will discuss her wines at Muhr-van der Niepoort and the state of the Austrian wine industry. She will also discuss Orange wines.
Carnuntum is a lesser-known Austrian wine region, east of Vienna, and this is where the Muhr-van der Niepoort winery is based. Dorli resuscitated her family vineyards here, taking advantage of the Spitzerberg’s distinctive terroir, together with the old Blaufränkisch vines and their tiny yields. The result are wines that reflect the tastes of the wine producers themselves: elegant and refined, with structure, length and plenty of floral freshness.
Also in the studio is Stetson Robbins of Blue Danube Wine, which is collaborating with Anfora to produce the event series Week of Orange Wine.
