The Hills Are Alive…with Gruner Veltliner!

OK yes, I am lame. As always. I had made this a number of months ago and each time I look at it I giggle. Yep. Giggle like a four-year old. I laugh at my own jokes only because nobody else will.

So the classic film ‘The Sound of Music’ was set in Austria. Therefore it is only appropriate that I adorn the lovely non-Austrian actress Julie Andrews with wines produced from the white grape variety grown predominantly in Austria: Gruner Veltliner.

Would be a pretty tacky marketing promotion, wouldn’t it?

Yet if it induces a giggle, then my work is done.
