Best Pairings for Austrian Wines

At Seäsonal Restaurant and Weinbar in New York City, chef Wolfgang Ban pairs haute-Austrian dishes with a stellar list of wines. Here, his takes on comfort classics: schnitzel and goulash.

Great Wines



Northwest of Vienna, Wagram is a source for potent reds like spicy Zweigelts. Ban loves the rich 2006 Leth Gigama. Another good bottle: 2008 Fritsch Red Soil.

Grüner Veltliner

Although not well known in the US, Weinviertel is Austria's largest wine region. Try its 2008 Weingut Hum Hofer Freiberg or 2008 Martinshof Grüners.
