Mondiale – A Heuriger Style Dinner & Tasting

In 1784, Emperor Joseph II of Austria decreed that any Austrian could open an establishment to serve their own produced wines. These establishments, called “Heurigen” (short for “Heuriger Wein”, this year’s wine) were open only briefly during the fall, and sold the newly fermented wines of the season. People would bring food and happily consume the winemakers’ wares. Some years later, food was allowed to be sold as well. Today, people enjoy the Gemütlichkeit of the Heurigen with simple foods and delicious local wines, and, often, music as well.

The Garden State Bailliage, will be holding a Mondiale event featuring our own Heuriger-style dinner at Mount Salem Vineyard in Pittstown, NJ on Sunday, August 14.  This unique Mondiale event will be hosted by Owner & Winemaker Peter Leitner. Uniquely, Peter and his staff will also be preparing our Austrian Cuisine for the evening in true Heuriger style! There will be a reception in the vineyard where Peter will tell the story of the vineyard, how he came to choose the varietals he grows and background on all the wines we will be enjoying. The outdoor dinner will be family style at a “long-table”. Of course, he will be serving his own wines!

Mount Salem Vineyards is located on the Historic Abbott-Taylor Farmstead. The farmhouse and the wine barn date to 1811. Restoration of the farmhouse began in 2000. The barn was moved from its original location and restoration began in 2010. The vineyards grow mostly Austrian varietals: Blaufrankish, Zweigelt, St Laurent, and Gruner Veltliner. Cabernet Franc and Riesling are also grown on the dry-farmed property, and grapes are sourced from a few other nearby vineyards as well, managed by Peter and his staff.

Availability is limited so please submit payment quickly to secure your seat/s. Payment deadline is Tuesday, August 9. No refunds are available after this date. As always, your payment confirms your reservation. Attire is casual with Chaine décorations.

Reception: 4:00pm; Dinner: 4:45pm
