This seemingly complicated wine is a special blend Martin and Anna put together exclusively for New York: 'Gerne' is a word used in service or hospitality in Austria to mean, 'it's my pleasure,' just as it is our pleasure to give the Arndorfers' wines a home with us in NY. It's a blend that won't be repeated — a once-in-a-blue-moon special assemblage from the Arndorfers' cellar. IT'S OUR PLEASURE TO SERVE YOU!
