An Austrian Pairing Made in Heaven is Coming to Mount Salem Kitchen This Saturday

As the air continues to cool here in lush Hunterdon County, we’re reminded that much more of the ambiance of Austria, which happens to be our muse for both food and wine this Saturday.

We will be serving Wachau-style chicken, a dish from Austrian wine country with chicken browned in bacon fat alongside sauteed onions and bacon, as well as white wine, chopped potatoes, porcini mushrooms and thyme. This savory, earthy dish will be offered by the $9 bowl – alongside fresh rye bread, our Liptauer cheese spread and Austrian charcuterie – and can also be paired with our 2016 Gruner Vetliner.

You can get this pairing from 11 a.m.-5 p.m. at our 1811 Wine Barn Loft, a fitting setting for this elegant, five-year-mature Library wine that also hails from the Wachau wine region in Upper Austria, alongside the Danube River and up into the hills. We will offer it for $10 per glass and $50 per bottle.

Besides our 2016 Gruner Vetliner, about five more of our handcrafted wines are also available to taste in our Wine Barn, which recently reopened for guests with improved ventilation and reduced capacity limits to enable safe social distancing.

Or, bring this perfect pairing home with you

If you can’t make it to our charming Wine Barn Loft this Saturday, you can also enjoy this ideal pairing at your own kitchen table by placing an order to-go for the Wachau-style chicken. For $19 for two servings when served with an accompanying vegetable and starch (we recommend our spätzle, which are Central European noodles), take this satisfying dish home with you and easily reheat by simmering in a saucepan with a half-cup of water for about 15 minutes.
