Austria’s Sweet Wine Specialties and Desserts

Mehlspeisen or “flour-dishes” in Austria are sweet creations that have flour as the main ingredient. This important (and very tempting) facet of Viennese cuisine is made even more alluring with the addition of two of the world-renowned sweet wine specialties produced here: Trockenbeerenauslese and Eiswein.

With Barbara’s expertise to guide you, you’ll make Seasonal Fruit Dumplings, Profiteroles, Brioche Soufflé and Topfenpalatschinken (Austrian-style Crépes with a sweetened fresh cheese filling) and then sit down to enjoy your creations with two very special sweet Austrian wines selected to pair beautifully by your own personal sommelier!

Barbara will teach you about how these wines are produced and about Austrian wines in general. You’ll learn about its regions, grape varieties and climate zones as well as quality level designations, tips on tasting and talking about wine and so much more. You’ll leave with a new understanding of what makes Austrian wines so special and memories you won’t soon forget!
