Muskateller by the Danube

Sometimes, a perfect pairing isn't about wine and food at all, but rather wine and the environment in which you're enjoying it. During my trip to Austria two weeks ago, I experienced one of the best wine-and-environment pairings of my life at Restaurant Jamek in the Wachau.

As you can see in the video below, we enjoyed lunch outside at this absolutely spectacular restaurant. It was one of those picture-postcard springtime days: 75, sunny, and with just the slightest hint of a breeze to carry and mix the aromas of the food on the tables and the flowers surrounding them. This was the perfect place, and the perfect time, to sip such a charming, floral, springlike wine.
