Österreichische Traditionsweingüter: silent tasting of the new vintage

Premiere showing of Erste Lage wines


A silent tasting on the highest level, which has become a fixed date on the calendar of the international wine world: only the Österreichische Traditionsweingüter could bring that off!

The preview tasting – which will not only take place this year from 3–5 September, but also be given for the seventh time – will offer experts the unique opportunity to give themselves a taste and overview of all ÖTW Erste Lage wines from the new vintage. And the demand for these highly desirable seats is enormous: from all over the world, the most important journalists, merchants and sommeliers have responded to the invitation of the Österreichische Traditionsweingüter to come and experience the enchanting ambience of Grafenegg Castle along with the extraordinary wines.


So, seize the last opportunity, and register now for the 2019 ÖTW Erste Lage preview!

For three days you’ll have a chance to taste all Erste Lage wines from the sixty-four member estates of the Österreichische Traditionsweingüter in the format of a silent tasting. There will be a total of some 200 top-drawer wines from eighty-one Erste Lage sites – white wines from the 2018 vintage, along with winegrowing region Carnuntum’s red wines from 2017.

Places for the tasting can be booked from 9.00–13.00 and from 14.00–18.00. The huge advantage offered by the silent tasting format is that the wines can be sampled at the taster’s own pace and in their own chosen order. Thus, it is easier to concentrate on the depth and complexity of the wines, without having to be distracted by the necessities of organisation and logistics.

About the Österreichische Traditionsweingüter:

The association of Österreichische Traditionsweingüter was founded in the year 1992 under the aegis of Kamptal winegrower Willi Bründlmayer. The objective of the organisation was that of classifying the vineyard sites along the Danube River (Traisental, Kremstal, Kamptal & Wagram). The first Erste Lage sites were presented to the public in 2010, and since then the process has continued every year. In 2018 the regions Wien and Carnuntum became a part of the movement. Sixty- four wine estates currently hold membership in the Österreichische Traditionsweingüter, with a total of eighty-one Erste Lage sites.
