After a long break, the great Austrian Tasting returns to Switzerland. The winemakers have the opportunity to present a wide range of Austrian wines to the professional audience in Switzerland.

In view of the global situation, the Austrian Tasting Switzerland is redesigning its concept. It will consist of a two-day event in Zurich, in the renovated and modernised Kongresshaus directly on Lake Zurich. An online tasting will follow a few weeks later. Thus, the entire event will become a hybrid event where guests from the wine industry can participate in both the tasting in Zurich and the online tasting in October.

A few weeks after the event in Zurich, there will be an additional online tasting as the second part of the Austrian Tastings Switzerland. This format is a tasting by winemaker portfolio, where guests can put together an individual tasting package consisting of 72 small bottles (100 ml). 

On the day of the online event, there will be a big virtual get-together. Wineries and participants will meet in the Brella online tool at the digital winemaker booths to taste and exchange ideas together. In addition, there will be an extensive supporting program with online master classes for the guests.

During the Real Live event, more than 100 wineries presented their portfolio to almost 400 trade visitors from the press, gastronomy and trade. The event was open to end consumers from 5 p.m. and so over 600 guests had the opportunity to enjoy the portfolio of the winemakers during this event. 
Exciting workshops and masterclasses were held as part of the Austrian tasting. The masterclasses were completely booked and were highly appreciated by the participants.

Extending the tasting to two days made it possible to better regulate the flow of visitors and thus comply with Covid rules and regulations in the best possible way. All guests were required to show a Covid certificate upon entry to ensure the safety of all participants.
