„What are the most unique sweet wine regions of the world? The west and east shore of Lake Neusiedl – no doubt for me!“ says Dr. Josef Schuller MW, director of the Austrian Wine Academy, Master of Wine and host of this masterclass tasting. In the last 500 years of history the sweet wines of these regions were wines of Kings and kings of wines. The Freistadt Rust doing this with the longest tradition – at least until the 16th century. The east bank of Lake Neusiedl – here above all the protected sub-region Seewinkel – has become the „rising superstar“ among the major sweet wine appelations in the world over the past 50 years. Burgenland can truly be happy to have defined Ruster Ausbruch DAC and Neusiedlersee DAC as a protected origin for their world champion sweet wines. Don’t miss this masterclass tasting with some of the best sweet wines of this entire world.
