I REMEMBER WHEN, way back when Klaus and Toni started and they stopped by Cleveland Park Wines & Spirits and we were one of the very first stores to sell Toni's wines here in Washington D.C. with the ever-popular GMORK Gruner Veltliner ... we had to have it, IT was a Must-Have wine, especially like now in the summer with the intense heat, the slight breeze if any and humidity always knocking and blowing at us and on our skin and clothes and at our doors and windows, too ... forcing us to dive for cover and a bottle of the delicious Gmork Gruner.

WHEN I WENT TO AUSTRIA way back when- 2004 was it ?!? with Klaus and a group of perhaps 12-15 people I coined the phrase : Become a Crooner With Gruner ", I like it, kinda catchy, don't you?!?

I am still working on the list of wines and wineries and producers to add here really soon! Cheers, stay-tuned,  TONY Happy Friday, July 11th, 2014 ....

MORE WINES listed below that we will be tasting with Klaus ...

7) NETZL, we'll taste a 2013 dry Chardonnay from the Gottlesbrunn Carnuntumm go to : for more info on the whole selection ...   

Pictured above is Christophe that worked with the wines of Stieninger - their sparkling wines as well as their non-sparkling. 

And Klaus always brings his ' new ' owners and growers/ wineries to see us here first. I'd like to think it was just how special we are here at Cleveland Park Wines & Spirits, but I have to give full credit, also to the fact that the Austrian Embassy is just up the street from us here off of Connecticut Avenue, N.W. Washington D.C. ...

So much to look forward to, to learn from, to experience, and all at your tongue's tip this Tuesday night, July 15th, 2014 from 5-8PM ...

We just did a great event with Klaus  at the Austrian Embassy when he did a seminar and people raved about it that came by after attending and tasting, learning and buying, too : yes, the really bought because they really liked what they tasted from what I have gathered and continue to .

Klaus knows how to get our attention, and it's not only adults!
