Wine Summit

“If you take a journey, then you've got something to tell”, and accordingly, the Austrian Wine Marketing Board frequently organises trips and excursions into the Austrian wine-growing regions for international importers and merchants, sommeliers and journalists.

The cultural highlight is the 'Weingipfel', or Wine Summit, which is held every second year (in alternating years with the biennial VieVinum International Wine Festival), to which the AWMB invites some 200 wine professionals, predominantly journalists, from all over the world. During the different wine excursions, participants have ample opportunity to increase their knowledge of the regions and make new contacts along the way. One of the best parts of every Wine Summit is the magnificent 'Austrian Wine Party', that is always planned for the final evening.
