NAPA, California, January 15, 2020 – The Sorting Table, LLC, the Napa-based importer of choice for unparalleled family-owned wines from across the globe, is pleased to share new acquisitions to its portfolio of boutique growers.
The Sorting Table is proud to announce its exciting foray into the wines of Austria. We will exclusively import wines from 3 award-winning producers: Ebner-Ebenauer in the Veinviertel, Leth in the Wagram, and Schauer in Südsteiermark. The Gruner Veltliners from Ebner-Ebenauer are the passionate collaboration between husband and wife Manfred and Marion Ebner-Ebenauer and are produced in a 400 year old cellar with the minimal interference. The extensive löess soil formations at Leth enable the family to create Gruner Veltliner, Riesling and Roter Veltliners that preserve the traditional methods and flavors of the great wines of the Wagram. Brothers Bernhard and Stefan Schauer grow Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling on some of the highest and steepest slopes in central Europe. The slate soils imbue flinty and spicy notes in their elegant, acidity-driven wines.
All four properties are owned and managed by the respective families, who will travel regularly to the U.S. in support their business.
The Ebner-Ebenauer, Leth and Schauer wines will be available across the U.S. in early February. For more information, please visit www.thesortingtable.com
