Hailing from Austria’s Burgenland region, this white blend from Prieler is one the most unique and refreshing wines we’ve encountered from the area. The wine is Pinot Blanc-dominant and pairs perfectly with Arden’s Thai Red Curry Salmon

The Prieler estate, in Schützen on the western side of the Lake Neusiedl, is a historic old farm, once dedicated to many types of agriculture but now specializing in grape growing. Two generations of the Prieler family now run the estate: Engelbert and Irmgard, who in 1972 focused the estate on quality production of several grape varieties, mainly Blaufränkisch and Burgundian varieties. Their son, Georg, now heads the estate and continues working to best express the unique terroir of the Leithagebirge.
Prieler’s 20 hectares are currently cultivated in vineyards between the Leithagebirge, the last outpost of the eastern Alps that protect the vines from the western winds, and the Lake Neusiedl, which tempers the hot climate of the Pannonian plain. Basking in 2000 hours of sunshine annually, North Burgenland is the sunniest region in all of central Europe, with far below average rainfall. Soils vary dramatically in this area around the Schützen Stein. Seeberg and Sinner vineyards contain fossil bearing limestone and are best suited, to Prieler’s outstanding Chardonnay and Pinot Blanc. The iron-rich, brown loam of the Johanneshöhe on the slopes of the Leithaberg produces delicious Blaufränkisch, while the Goldberg vineyard, filled with ‘glimmerschiefer’, or mica-schist, flecked with gold, produces one of the most important, world-class wines in all of Austria.

The roots run deep with Vincent & Sophie Morey who both come from a long line of Burgundian winemakers. This classic white burgundy from the legendary husband & wife duo comes from 4 parcels in Puligny, Chassagne and Santenay.
Organic farming practices
Although not as well-known as Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio, if you tend to gravitate towards these refreshing, acid-forward wines, we can assure you that you’ll love this bottle of Arneis—think of it like the latter two’s slightly nutty, more mineral-driven cousin. Enjoy with our Blue Zones Inspired Minestrone with Pistachio Pesto.
Organic farming practices, native yeast fermentation, and woman-winemaker.
This Chardonnay is a total CA babe. It’s vibrant and fresh with a silky palate and touch of sea salt on the finish. In short, it’s an all-around crowd pleaser.

This Sauvy B is incredibly refreshing. It has bright citrus fruit and florals, but finishes off with a touch of salty ocean sea breeze that reminds you it’s from the Western Cape.
