What is the thought process behind evaluating wine in a new country?

Sure, we’ve had wine from Austria before. In the past few years more and more Austrian Grüner Veltliner (white wine) has made it’s way into the US market. But if we are looking for the gems that haven’t quite become popular in the US then the question is, does it makes sense for us to use our experience with Grüner Veltliner as a benchmark for evaluating the wine during an in-person tour of little vineyards?

For us it does not. Watch the video to get a sense of what we have to think about when arriving in a new country or region for the first time.
