Asparagus Vinaigrette (serve lukewarm)

Asparagus with vinaigrette is the asparagus appetizer par excellence. If made with tomatoes, onions or herbs – then a firm but not too grassy Sauvignon blanc, around 1 or 2 years old, is an ideal choice. Also a classic Rotgipfler or a strong, spicy Veltliner with the typical peppery “Pfefferl” expression match very well - but the alcohol content should not be too high, as the main  courses are still to come.

Pairs nicely with

  • Sauvignon blanc with good body but no wood
  • Grüner Veltliner Classic with body
  • Grüner Veltliner Reserve that's not too heavy
  • Rotgipfler Classic
