Every two years the VieVinum wine fair in Vienna showcases the best wine that Austrian and international growers and producers have to offer. With over 500 exhibitors from all around the world, Austria’s biggest wine event is a must visit for all in the industry as well as those who simply know their Blaufränkisch from their Zweigelt.
Since 1998 the VieVinum has provided the perfect platform to showcase Austrian and international wine producers, importers and distributors and June 2012 will be no exception. From 2 to 4 June visitors have the opportunity in the dramatic Hofburg to personally meet the various wine growers, gain new insight into the industry from numerous experts and of course to get involved in some tasting.
Managing director of the Austrian Wine Marketing Board (ÖMW) Willi Klinger said, "Austria has succeeded in the last 10 years in taking a place in the international group of top wines. The high quality of our wine growers and the support of our specialist audience is therefore crucial. With such events we can greatly increase the emotional attachment to the wine-producing country of Austria."
High quality, Austrian food will also be celebrated at the fair. VieVinum have developed a strong relationship over the years with Viennese restaurants and pubs who, for a minimum of two weeks, nearer to the time of the fair, offer a special VieVinum Menu. Those who indulge at one of the specific restaurants will be able to enter the VieVinum event in June for 29 Euros instead of the normal 40 Euros.
The event will also provide sustenance after a long day of wine tasting in the Gourmet Lounge where visitors can sample food specialities from around Austria.
