    Really enjoyed this show. I have never had a Lagrein and had never heard of it before this show.
    I promise to try one in the near future!

    Hi there, we’re the producers of the Lagrein Prestige Kellerei Gries. We enjoyed this video very much! Most wine tastings in the “Old world” aren’t so entertaining and full of passion. Congratulations! Feel free to visit our web page http://www.kellereibozen.com

    As you would suspect, I have never heard of this wine, and hope to find one soon.

    Great show! I tried a Santa Maddalena Lagrein perl (2002) last year. It was fabulous and on the hunt for more…..Will give the Kellerei a whirl….

    I just drank a California Lagrein from Tobin James. 2005, Paso Robles. Delicious. I’m a convert. Have you tried this?

  • Purple Toothed Bandit

    Great show Gary! As chance would have it the local Santa Barbara Winery in my home town produces an excellent Lagrein varietal for $30…. I try to grab a bottle about once a month. It is the only one I have tried but I love it’s bigness and have merely been lazy about seeking out others. I will do so, however, and I’ll let you know if anything blows me away! Santa Barbara also produces a Negrette that is almost just as big and tasty…. have you done a show on this varietal?

    Lagrein is also produced in Australia, and has been comercially since 1998, firstly in the Macedon Ranges, at 610m elevation in granatic sand, by Cobaw Ridge. The wines are full bodied, rich, and true to variety.

    They are available in limited quantities in the U.S.

    O.m.g, I'm sooo late on this! Just finding out.. Great show! Love the passion and I love Alto Adige!!! My favorit Lagrein is Cantina Terlan Lagrein Porphyr… Great, complex, thick Red, with licorice, dark, dark chocolate and at the same time mineral and elegant… wow! B.t.w. love all the whites from A.A.! But check out another red, Elena Walch Merlot Kastelatz!! I had the 2004 and was blown away, a little edgy and not just round but very big wine, with lots of spices, it came in a box with Cab. Sauv. (very nice) and the white blend 'Beyond the clouds'!!! Which brings you right there!
