Before the wines from the ÖTW ERSTE LAGEN are put on the market, they are presented to trade visitors and private wine lovers at the beginning of September. At Schloss Grafenegg, the most important castle complex of romantic historicism in Austria, all Erste Lagen wines of the current vintage will be presented for the first time. These wines may only be sold in September - one year after the harvest for the white wines and two years later for the red wines.
This year again directly in the state rooms of Schloss Grafenegg, you have the unique opportunity to taste the current vintage of all around 240 1ÖTW wines. The wines are ranked according to "Erste Lagen", so that you have a direct comparison: How do the respective terroir and microclimate affect the wines? Can you detect any similarities? What influence does the winemaker's hand have? An exciting tasting is guaranteed!
Afterwards there will be a concert of the Orchestra e Coro Teatro alla Scala at the Grafenegger Wolkenturm. Verdi's opera choruses will be heard under the baton of Riccardo Chailly. You should not miss this, get tickets for it quickly! (Tickets: grafenegg.com)
Admission to the tasting is free with a concert ticket of the same day (lawn tickets are valid, too!).
Without a concert ticket, admission is EUR 25 (to be purchased on site, please pay in cash).
No registration is necessary.
