This year’s annual VieVinum is sure to be a great success – in short, VieVinum is Austria’s largest wine festival offering hundreds of wine professionals from around the world the chance to sip, savor, and celebrate with the largest number of winemakers (and, therefore, wines) in one spot. This biennial wine fair is highly coveted among wine professionals worldwide and an invitation to this event is generally met with joyous celebration. The festival is open to the public, but unless you’re of German-speaking decent, are a hard-core wine enthusiast, and/or happen to know everything about Austrian wines, you’ll likely need a guide to navigate yourself through this palace full of wine. Even if you are (and perhaps, especially if you are) you should continue reading.

You’re in luck. Each year, importer, Klaus Wittauer, KW Selection offers US consumers a trip to get in on the action. Below, you’ll find the designated itinerary and the information you need to book your spot. Take it from those that have been to VieVinum and had the opportunity to travel through Austria – you do not want to miss this trip!
