VieVinum 2012

Wine festival par excellence in the Vienna Hofburg Palace

Wine lovers and anyone interested in wine have long had these dates marked in their calendars and have been awaiting the event in eager anticipation. The eighth VieVinum is taking place in Vienna’s Hofburg Palace between June 2 and 4, 2012.

Every other year, the wine country of Austria creates the perfect framework for the first-rate wine event. Variety is also on the agenda for 2012 – roughly 520 exhibitors and producers from Austria and the (wine) world over are expected, from Europe to Australia, from the USA to South America and South Africa. Will the public be similarly international? Based on 2010 figures, this question can be answered with a definite “yes” – around 14,300 visitors from nearly 30 countries attended the VieVinum that year.

Not just any “wine trade show”

What is so fascinating about the VieVinum? Why should you go to this particular wine festival? On the one hand, the number of vintners, dealers and exhibitors, as well as their international origins, is definitely impressive. On the other hand, the extremely professional presentation, the way visitors are optimally looked after and the comprehensive general program in the Vienna Hofburg Palace as a top location must be highlighted. The VieVinum is also energetically supported by the Austrian Wine Marketing Board (see http://www.vievinum.com/general/the-awmb-and-the-vievinum/) this year as well. 

The general program offers a broad spectrum, from special presentations on wine-growing regions to wine tastings, all the way to lectures and discussions (for details, please see http://www.vievinum.com/general/side-events/).

The collaboration between VieVinum and Genuss Region Österreich promises a culinary highlight as well. Region-specific, high-quality specialties from Austria’s 110 gastronomical regions can be discovered and tasted within the framework of the wine event.

For visitors from the federal provinces or outside of Austria, between June 1 and 5, 2012 there are attractive overnight stays and combination offers – thanks to the cooperation agreement with Mondial, the trade show travel specialist.
