Austrian Wine Makes Food Shine  Importers meeting and press dinner in Oslo .

7. October 2008

  
 

A meeting with Norwegian wine importers was arranged by the Austrian Trade Commission in cooperation with the Austrian Wine Marketing Board. The new trends in the Austrian wine production were presented and afterwards discussed.

Austrian wine is a success story in Norway. Wines like “Schilcher” and “Grüner Veltliner” helped to raise the export volume between 2000 and 2007 more than 600 percent. The aim is to keep this upward trend. The only restriction could be the given area of vineyards (51,000 ha).

In the evening the Austrian Wine Marketing Board sampled Austrian wines at a fabulous dinner for the press. 16 wines were presented by Arne Ronold, Norways only Master of wine and 2006 winner of the Austrian Bacchus prize.
