..to join me on the Live Austrian Wine Adventure. LAWA (pron. " "laa-vaah" ") is coming your way this May 15th.
What is LAWA? I'm glad you asked. In partnership with the good folks at Winemonger and Wines from Austria, Basic Juice will broadcast live from Austria's wine country during May and June. And when I say broadcast, I mean broaaad-cast: I will be publishing my experiences with the unique & diverse wines of Austria on a daily basis. I'll also serve up the dish on Austrian cuisine, tales from Lake Neusiedl, reports from Vienna's Heurigen and snapshots of Styria - Austria's Tuscany. But wait, there's more. I plan to interview many of the unique personalities on the Austrian wine scene, such as Birgit Braunstein, Daniel Jaunegg and Father Denk the Wine Priest. These interviews will be podcast through the audio wizardry of Winecast. My goal is to make you feel as if you're sitting in the passenger seat with me as we explore the Austrian countryside.
You, dear reader, can help shape LAWA. Tell me what you want to learn about Austria and its wine. Tell me what would make this event of interest to you. And don't hesitate to tell me what would bore you silly. Drop you suggestions in the comments section and I'll do my best to make LAWA interesting. In fact, I guaran-damn-tee that LAWA will be the most fun and exciting wine road trip you've ever experienced vicariously.
Now if you're still not convinced that LAWA is this spring's must-see event, perhaps a Top Five list will sway you.
