Austrian Wine Experience 2013

Austrain Wine Experience

Matching wines to each dish that are strictly from a single country is a massive challenge even for the most experienced. Even more so for diners who have a stronger preference for the mainstream wines. In the landlocked country of Austria, the farmers grow a diverse range of grapes that are made into food-friendly wines for most, if not all, I dare say.

Our new look, our new team and our new sections

Pouring Champagne

We’re back! And I am sure you’ve already noticed, we’re back with a completely different look. I want to firstly thank every single person who gave us her or his feedback on which design template we should move to. In the end, we decided to use the Shaken Grid both because many of you preferred it over the other options, but also because Su-Lyn and I really liked its visual style and navigation system.  We also liked that it re-adjusts itself reasonably well for tablets and smartphones–necessities in making digital design choices these days.
