Austrian red wine take over... 90 sips at a time 

December 7, 2012

This season marked the biggest celebration of Austrian red wines to date in the US! Beginning in October, the Austrian Wine Marketing Board held a plethora of tastings at wine shops, wine dinners at top restaurant accounts, wine events in conjunction with the 90th birthday of the most widely-planted red grape Zweigelt, our friends, online wine tastings, and so much more.  

The entire celebration concluded on November 29th with the much-anticipated Wein Burgenland Magnum Party at the soon-to-be-open The Third Man bar in Alphabet City, an Austrian cocktail bar owned and operated by the Michelin-starred team from Seasonal and Edi & the Wolf, Eduard Frauneder and Wolfgang Ban.

The party featured multiple bottles of over 40 wines and was attended by the industry-elite in an all-out celebration lasting to the wee hours of the morning! Special guests included a delegation from Wein Burgenland , Elisabeth Hirschbuechler, the Austrian Wine Queen, Franz Klammer, the Austrian Skilegend, Aldo Sohm, Best Sommelier of the World 2008, Paul Grieco, James Beard Award Winner 2012, and many more! In word: a big success!
