Wine Summit - Feedback

The Austrian Wine Marketing Board (AWMB) sponsored an international gathering of wine industry professionals, who came and toured Austria’s wine country from May 8th to May 11th. Some 80 wine journalists and critics, selected wine merchants and sommeliers – from a total of forty countries scattered all over the world – participated in the AWMB’s “Wine Summit” this year.

Da wurde noch einmal sehr, sehr klar, wie wir letzte Woche verwöhnt worden sind - organisatorisch, kulinarisch, weintechnisch, und auch was die angenehme Gesellschaft betrifft. Volle Punktzahl in allen Kategorien. Also Danke mit Verbeugung für alles

Hier noch mal ein großes Dankeschön für die exzellent organisierte Reise, die so wundervoll bunt und voller Vielfalt war. Ein Highlight nach dem Nächsten, es ist kaum zu toppen! Das Burgenland als besonderes Weinanbaugebiet ist mir ans Herz gewachsen. Danke für die vielen lehrreichen Stunden, von denen ich noch lange zehren werde.

Wir haben viele neue Eindrücke gewonnen und alte wiederaufgefrischt. Natürlich werden uns auch der Abend in der Orangerie von Schloss Schönbrunn, die gesetzte Blindverkostung „Österreich gegen den Rest der Welt“ mit Mittagessen im Steirereck und die Abendgala im Parkhotel Schönbrunn in allerbester Erinnerung bleiben. Wir haben sehr schöne Stunden in eurer Gesellschaft verbracht, die wir so schnell nicht vergessen werden.

Now safely back in California after the pleasure of Wine Summit events, I hasten to send my thanks for your fantastic organization and peerless hospitality. It is always a pleasure to work with OEWM, and this edition of Weingipfel was no exception. I am delighted to have discovered Styria, and such excellent producers as Wohlmuth, Schauer, Herrenhof Lamprecht, Ploder-Rosenberg, and Tement. The dinner at Steirawirt and lunch at Pfarrhof Sankt Andra were especially memorable. Thanks particularly to Willi for choosing some brilliant wines at the Magnothek, and for the cleverly-organized blind tasting at Steiereck, which was quite fun!

Thank you to all of you for another great Wine Summit and I am once again reminded how honored and blessed I am to work with such a great group of professionals and friends and an amazing wine country!
These trips always go by so fast, but it was a truly fantastic few days!

I would like to express my great gratitude for your warm hospitality and all the arrangements during my recent visit in Austria from you and your team. I had enjoyed my stay very much and was greatly appreciated the opportunity to exchange perspectives with all those attended the event. The gala was also splendid and memorably hosted. Plus, the arranged program was extremely beneficial and most impressed, particularly from the winery visit. I certainly gained such valued insights and understanding which would be very useful for future marketing program in Thailand. In this occasion, I would like to reassure that all the knowledge will be passed on among Thai sommeliers in order to provide them the better understanding and be able to leverage the preference of Austrian wine in Thai market.

Thanks once again for the opportunity to visit the Austrian Wine regions. It was a great learning experience. I will be most certainly writing an article in detail on the visit. I have also spoken about the wines and the event on my podcast (THE DRINKS & DESTINATIONS PODCAST) with an interview with Mr. Willi Klinger. Here is a link to the podcast episode. Please listen to it and share it on your social media pages.
