In this episode, there will be a slight Austrian wine focus, so you will learn about 3 of the main grape varieties. I am joined by Austrian Master Sommelier Stefan Neumann. He has worked in some incredible Michelin Star Restaurants in his time, and he takes us on a journey of these, including some of his favourite dishes, his disaster stories, and a little celebrity tale. He explains what is necessary to take a Master Sommelier exam and his experience. Then you will learn a few tricks to understand a wine list better and then you will hear of his 4 best value wine regions.
