Glamorous Anniversary with a Small Sensation

Once again, VieVinum attracted more than 15,000 visitors and transformed the Vienna
Hofburg Palace into a throbbing centre of superb wine culture. The importance of inimitable
origins and vintages was the central theme for lively exchanges with vintners from Austria
and neighbouring wine countries to the east and the west. A friendly competition staged by
Vinum wine magazine lead to a small triumph for Austrian red wines.

The tenth VieVienum: a chapter in Austrian wine history

The trade fair organizer M.A.C. Hoffmann and the Austrian Wine Marketing Board (AWMB) launched the VieVinum for the first time in 1998. This was the beginning of a new era for Austrian wine fairs.
The magnificent ambience of the Vienna Hofburg Palace has since become symbolic for the irresistible charisma that Austrian wine has for the international wine market. Grüner Veltliner and Blaufränkisch, exemplary for all Austrian grape varieties, are now firmly established as superlative wines that have become indispensible for wine lists of international calibre.
