Twenty-four producers from across Austria’s quality wine-growing regions – from the Weinviertel to Sudsteiermark- will be attending the first Vinexpo New York interested to find importing and distribution partners this March 5th and 6th at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center.
“We are excited to welcome these “New Faces” of Austrian wine to the US market”, said Willi Klinger, Managing Director of the Austrian Wine Marketing Board (AWMB), “this is the next step for Austrian wine in the USA and we are proud to introduce these great producers to our partners – old and new – here.”
During the Vinexpo New York there will be a “New Faces of Austrian Wine” seminar hosted on March 5th from 12:00pm -1:15pm in the River Pavillion. All attendees to the Vinexpo are welcome to attend. The seminar will focus on the wines and stories of the visiting producers.
“We welcome all press and trade to discover a new side of Austrian wine,” continued Klinger, “we are confident you will walk away impressed and reassured of Austria’s potential.”
