It is undoubtedly the most demanding and exciting tasting that takes place in Austria: From September 4 - 8, around 500 wines exclusively from single vineyards will be offered in a tasting, for which trade press, importers, sommeliers and retailers will travel from all over the world.
The grounds of Grafenegg Castle, about 60 km west of Vienna, provide the picturesque setting for this high-quality tasting, which is organized by the Austrian Traditional Wine Estates. Almost 80 winegrowers along the Danube - from the Traisen Valley to Carnuntum - are the initiators of the event, which has been held annually since 2013. More and more wine-growing regions have joined in, so that in this year's event a good 500 wines from the Traditionsweingütern as well as from the guest regions Eisenberg, Leithaberg, Styria and Wachau can be tasted.
Bigger and better and still personal
For five days, the winemakers will serve their wines in person. The wines of the ÖTW can be tasted from Monday to Thursday. On Monday and Tuesday, the Styrian STK wineries will also be guests. On Thursday, wines from the Eisenberg and Leithaberg regions of Burgenland will be served. On Friday, the event moves to Dürnstein, where the wines of Vinea Wachau will be tasted.
Silent Tasting Format
Individual wine selection, your own tasting rhythm and personal winemaker contact: the Silent Tasting format of the ÖTW Single Vineyard Summit offers perfect tasting conditions. In the interest of undisturbed concentration, admission is granted only at the beginning of the pre-booked tasting slots (9 a.m. or 2 p.m.).
