Bluebird Tavern

"We're looking for the underdogs of wine," says general manager Laura Wade. For a dinner at Bluebird Tavern last spring, she collaborated with her husband, Bluebird chef Aaron Josinsky, to feature the little-known Austrian Steininger family, who make both still and sparkling versions of three different grapes: Riesling, Grüner Veltliner and Zweigelt. Josinsky paired the crisp wines with an assortment of house-made charcuterie, including Tuscan winemaker's salami made with Sangiovese, coppa (pork shoulder) and ham-and-parsley terrine.
