Vienna is the only world capital producing significant quantities of wine within its city limits and Zahel is the only Austrian winery that produces a wine composed of 100% OrangetraubeHow cool is that for off the beaten path? Orangetraube, which literally translates to "Orange Grape." This rare aromatic white grape gets this name from having skins that take on a slightly orange tint when fully ripe.

Zahel is an organic estate with 4th generation winemaker, Richard Zahel at the helm. Fermented in stainless steel, we taste mandarin, white peach, apricot, a touch of floral, a smidgeon of minerality, and zippy acidity that keeps it light and refreshing. Maybe think dry Riesling meets Pinot Gris?
