DescriptionThe result of an Austrian market filled with clutter and confusion, The Dot, created by winemaker Roman Pfaffl Jr., was introduced in 2008 to provide a clear message: Austrian wine is simple and delicious. The Dot is wholly supported by the team at Pfaffl Winery, who received a nomination for European Winery of the Year (2016) from Wine Enthusiast Magazine. This innovative, young and smart brand is a sensation on the Austrian and international wine market with focus on Gruner Veltliner, Zweigelt and St. Laurent -- the most important varieties of Lower Austria. The Dot consists of high quality, approachable, food-friendly wine combined with inventive packaging that calls out the primary fruit aroma and flavor in the wine.
