ProWein 2022: Austria in a perfect position in Hall 5

Around 280 Austrian winegrowers will present their top wines at the ProWein trade fair in Düsseldorf between 15 and 17 May. For the first time ever, Austria will be showcased in the well situated Hall 5, where twelve masterclasses organised by Austrian Wine will also bring in a high number of visitors.

Prime location in Hall 5

Austrian winegrowers will enjoy a good position at ProWein 2022. This is the first year that they have been given a spot in Hall 5 – a great location. “Being directly next door to the big German halls will bring us a strong influx of industry experts with whom our winegrowers can network!” says Chris Yorke, CEO of Austrian Wine. Wine experts from around the world will have plenty to discover in Hall 5. No less than 277 wineries will be showcasing their range and the outstanding quality of Austrian wine. There will be around 2,200 wines to taste, including not only the truly exceptional 2021 vintage but also reserve and aged wines.

Masterclasses ensure added value

In-depth insights into the fascinating world of Austrian wine will be provided by twelve masterclasses organised by Austrian Wine on Sunday 15 and Monday 16 May. For example, Stephan Reinhardt will be presenting the Austrian wines that were accorded the highest ratings by the Robert Parker Wine Advocate in 2021; Sascha Speicher from the Meininger publishing house will be demonstrating the ageing potential of Austrian wines using selected Sekts, red and white wines, and dessert wines; Willi Schlögl from the Freundschaft wine bar in Berlin and Florian Schütky (Austrian Wine) will both be explaining the practices adopted by Austrian winegrowers to ensure environmentally-friendly wine production; and the legendary sommelier Gerhard Retter will be guiding his audience through exciting alternatives to Grüner Veltliner, Blaufränkisch & Co.

Austrian charm provided by culinary delights

A warm Austrian welcome in an authentic atmosphere will be ensured by the coordinated design and style of the tasting stands, as well as by delicious Austrian specialities provided by Gruber’s Restaurant – a long-established culinary institution at the trade fair.
