I’m Lawrence Francis, Host of Interpreting Wine, welcoming you to the Carnuntum Winemaker Special Series. Produced in collaboration with Wine & Partners. 

 The first regional series of the year is in many ways a return to the origins of Interpreting Wine. Recorded in-person at the winery  with respected local producers, who are themselves deeply rooted in the region.

Giving wine students and wine lovers alike access to the minds behind the wines. Literally the next best thing to visiting the region yourself. 

Here in episode 541 foreshadowing a tasting planned for Vievinum Wine Fair 2024, focusing on a tasting of Single vineyard wines from Carnuntum’s standout 2015 and 2019 vintages. Before in episode 542, focusing on Rubin Carnuntum and the work that continues to support the communication of zweigelt as a high quality red varietal.

We kick things off today in the company of Johanna Markowitsch and Christina Netzl of Weinguts Markowitsch and Netzl
