I'm really excited about an upcoming event at Planet Wine in Del Ray and haven't seen anything posted on their website about it so thought I'd post here. The shop is hosting visiting Austrian winemaker Eva Steininger of Weingut Steininger and importer Klaus Wittauer for a special tasting event this Thursday at 7:30. Price is $25 for the tasting which will include hors d'oeuvres. I LOVE their wines...vibrant, fun whites...perfect for warm weather (which will eventually get here, right?). Check out their portfolio here.

Call the shop to RSVP at 703.549.3444. See you there?

Sorry, it was last month. I think they're having an Italian winemaker visit at the end of May. I don't work for them anymore, but the website should have all that info (www.planetwineshop.com).
