It wasn't perfect, but there are worse things than being a multiethnic / multilingual empire with a widely trusted civil service and a world-class postal service. Honestly, that sounds pretty good right about now. Though they've now been carved up repeatedly by different borders in the intervening years (and one Iron Curtain), the wine regions of the former empire remain a fascinatingly diverse place to explore. Whether we're on the Danube or Lake Neusiedl, in a village in Moravia or Styria, Jois or Strekov, there are so many dynamic new things to drink! From welschriesling to olaszriesling, from kekfrankos to blaufrankisch, we'll unearth a few gems and tackle some complicated languages and diverse histories.
