Arlberg Hospiz Saint Christoph

We just returned from the Arlberg Hospiz Saint Christoph, in Austria, where we were invited to participate to a tasting event with our wines for more than 120 people and for the prize-giving ceremony for the title of Best Maître d’Hôtel given by Falstaff to Mr. Mino Zaccaria from the Mörwald Ambassador in Vienna.
We tasted Valandraud 1999, 2002 et 2003, Virginie de Valandraud 1999, 2002 and 2003 and Clos Badon Thunevin 2001, 2002 and 2004.
The perfect organization and the pleasure people had in drinking our wines confirmed once more that there are no “American Parker taste” label given to our wines, but a “European Parker taste” label, given to wines produced with ripe fruits.
The wine cellar from this 5 stars hotel with a quality restaurant, in this beautiful “exclusive” ski resort, is mostly known for having one of the best collection of large formats of 12 liters of top wines (Cheval Blanc, etc…)
At the table, I could see customers drink such bottles, served in carafes of course.
