Over 90 Austrian estates presented their wines to a record numbers from the wine trade and press, the hotel, restaurant and hospitality industry, and the Anglo-Austrian Business Community.

Austrian Trade Commissioner Georg Karabaczek said “Austrian wines were the wine world’s best-kept secret. Well, they are a secret no longer!”

Willy Klinger CEO of Austrian Wine reveals Austria’s usp: “Austria’s signature wines offer a genuine point of difference – Austria makes authentic, individual wines, hand-made by family estates.”

These wines are clearly in a different league to industrialised, uniform mass market wines, but also a match for top burgundies. It was Jancis Robinson, who delivered the decisive score (Austria 7, Burgundy O) at the famous blind tasting of top-quality white wines in London back in 2002.

On February 15th Jancis arrived at the tasting on a new mission: to taste the entire range of Austrian reds currently available in the UK - we await her verdict!
