The Austrian Wine Marketing Board executes its first ever retail weeks promotion in wine and liquor stores this spring offering promotions, discounts, and more Austrian wine than ever before to consumers.

Austrian wine is taking a stand in US retail stores this year with the first ever Austrian Wine Retail Weeks occurring from May 8 – June 9, 2013 with a special kick-off period May 8 – 14th.

The promotion will involve over 100 top retail stores across the country; each store will carry at least six different Austrian wines. During this period, Austrian wine will be featured in tastings, promotions, and more in select stores in top markets across the country.

“We are very excited to be able to work with so many great stores across the country,” said Executive Director of the Austrian Wine Marketing Board, Willi Klinger. “A lot of customers don’t have access to taste a range of Austrian wines on a regular basis and this will be a great opportunity for both them and the stores to become better acquainted.”

Participating stores will receive additional training on Austrian wine including food and wine pairing seminars which will be valuable knowledge to pass on to consumers.
