110 Austrian Winemakers overlooking the New York Skyline

Austria Uncorked
May 12, 2010

The Austria Uncorked Wine Tastings held on May 3 in San Francisco and May 5 in New York City, attracted more than 1,000 visitors, making it the largest presentation of Austrian wines ever to take place in the United States.  


The Austrian Wine Marketing Board and the Austrian Trade Commission invited to experience Austria Uncorked, an unlimited Austrian wine tasting on May 5 at Tribeca Rooftop in New York City. Over 350 wine trade professionals tasted their way through the impressive wines from 110 Wine Estates, before 650 private consumers and wine enthusiasts paid the 55 dollar entry fee to not only enjoy the breathtaking views from the 24th floor of the Tribecca Rooftop building, but also to taste wines poured directly by the winemakers and their importers from all of Austria’s wine producing regions. Tasty canapé creations came from Star Chef Kurt Gutenbrunner, who had invited 12 top New York restaurants to treat the guests to their ‘signature dishes’. The proceeds of the fully booked event went in aid of ‘Grow NYC’ . Two days previously in San Fransisco, the first leg of the ‘Austria Uncorked’ presentation was held with great success in the magnificent Fort Mason building with 80 winemakers.
