Wilhelm Nest with guests
20 January 2014

To drive out the January Blues, Wilhelm Nest, the Austrian Commercial Counsellor in Ireland, held a New Year’s reception in his home high above the Dublin docklands.  

The assembled guests came from all the sectors with strong commercial links between Ireland and Austria. There were representatives from the travel, wine, renewables, sustainable building, medical devices and IT sectors as well as from government agencies.

As a special treat for the guests, Ben Mason and Barbara Boyle of Wicklow Wines conducted a wine tasting of top Austrian red and white wines. The guests were astounded by the variety and quality offered by Austrian boutique wine growers.

The wines were:
GRUNER VELTLINER from Schloss Gobelsberg, Kamptal
GEMISCHTER SATZ from Ingrid Groiss, Hollabrunn
RIESLING from Birgit Eichinger, Strass
ZWEIGELT and ST. LAURENT from Birgit Braunstein, Purbach am Neusiedlersee
