About Weissburgunder

Weissburgunder is produced under different names, and with different styles, in various European wine regions.

The grape can be used to produce full bodied wines, light and crisp wines, sparkling wines, and dessert wines.

Popular food pairings in Alsace are Omelet and Quiche.

In Italy Pinot Bianco is often blended with other grapes and used in the production of sparkling wines.

Germany and Austria

German Weissburgunder (White Burgundy) is usually light and crisp, much like the Italian variety.

In Austria Weissburgunder is used to make the luxurious and sweet Trockenbeerenauslese.

The Ideal Glass

A Tulip Shaped glass is the best choice for a dry white wine.

It guides the wine to the center of your mouth, avoiding the sides, where acidity is less pleasant.

A smaller bowl also helps to serve smaller quantities, and keep the wine cold.

Remember to hold the glass by the stem!

Alcohol can be addictive. Drink in moderation.
