song pairing: lazy crazy hazy days of summer” – nat king cole 

from: Niederösterreich, Austria

grapes: grüner veltliner

Uh, no disrespect intended to Nat King Cole but, in Houston, the title of this song should be “The Steamy Bad-Dreamy Ozone Days of Summer.”  Here’s how we’d rework the lyrics: “Roll out those steamy, bad-dreamy, ozone days of summer/ Those days of soda and pretzels and Veltliner/ Roll out those steamy, bad-dreamy, ozone days of summer/ Dust off the sun and moon and nap in your recliner.” Grüner Veltliner is the perfect antidote to the hellish summers we endure in Houston every year. It’s a dry white wine that grows almost exclusively in Austria and is a startlingly great alternative to Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Grigio due to its energetic character and ability to pair with a wide range of summer foods. And, more importantly, Barbara Öhlzelt is one of a growing cadre of amazing female winemakers from Austria who are dazzling the wine world with their grape juice!
