Austrian Wine shop online

With Supreme Court ruling this year and all the state legislation that has been or soon will be introduced about wine shipment we can expect plenty of new smaller wine business cropping up everywhere.  This week ushered in another new online wine shop – Winemonger.com.  But this one has an interesting twist – it specializes in Austrian wine. 

Winemonger is a boutique wine import and retail company based in Los Angeles, California. It imports and sells special wines that are an expression of their region: wines that reflect terroir, tradition and the winemaker’s personal philosophy. Winemonger currently offers a catalog of Austrian wines, with more varietals and regions to come.

Emily Wiessman, co-founder of Winemonger.com, notes that shoppers at Winemonger.com can also browse wine region maps , a grape varietal glossary , and vintner profiles to aid in their selection. For a limited time only, Winemonger is offering free shipping on select cases of wine.  Also, to stoke business, first time shoppers will get 10% off (for a limited time).

Riesling certainly makes a great BBQ wine for the summer and it also happens to be my in-laws’ favorite varietal so when they visit this summer I’ll be shopping for some and this looks like a pretty appropriate place.

I’ll be checking out the site and writing a some more in the near future but I thought I’d point it out for all the Austrian wine fans out there hoping to bag a few “hard to find” bottles.
