Have we mentioned the menu looks as if it was created  by Besia, the Roman goddess of feasts and beverages herself? There’s a dreamy, romantic carriage ride in the mountains… and EH is skipping around the house at the prospect of a fabulously organic weekend…. we are booking our place!

The Grüner Baum hotel (www.hoteldorf.com) is situated in Bad Gastein, in Austria’s Salzburg province, and the two night, organic wine tasting weekend runs from Friday  June 26th – Sunday 28th 2015.

The oenological package costs 359 euros (approximately £260) per person and has been timed to coincide with Austria’s 13th annual organic wine awards, the ‘Best of Bio’ competition (www.bestof.bio), which the Grüner Baum hotel is hosting.

The package, which includes a gala dinner, a mountain hut dinner and four tasting sessions, has been created to showcase the best of Austria’s increasingly popular organic wines to guests and to allow them to experience  the 2015 ‘Best of Bio’ competition first-hand. Spaces are very limited, and EH is hoping to be there, as the only wine that passes our lips is organic or biodynamic as conventional wine contains lots of additives and pesticides that have no place in wine, and are not good for our health.
