    Austria: New Wines from the Old World with Andreas Wickhoff MW

    Austria: New Wines from the Old World with Andreas Wickhoff MW

    While Austria in terms of volume only plays a minor role in the global wine context, the country’s wines have gained more and more fans around the world thanks to their high quality and unique elements. The diversity related to the size of Austria’s vineyards is immense, ranging from zesty Grüner Veltliners and vibrant Rieslings along the Danube valley over to Vienna’s field blends down to charming Sauvignon Blancs from Steiermark and up to crunchy Blaufränkisch and fruity Zweigelts from Burgenland. Discover the beautiful landscapes, demanding soils and the tension of opposites in this webinar about Austria’s wine country!

    Presenter: Andreas Wickhoff MW

    Commencing with vintage 2016, Andreas Wickhoff MW has been managing director for Weingut Bründlmayer in Austria's Kamptal and oversees, along with Willi Bründlmayer, all operations for this leading estate. Before that, he was general manager for a group of premium wineries from Austria for 12 years. Ahead of establishing this association in 2004, he worked as a sommelier and wine buyer in Corsica, France and Vail, CO, USA. Andreas is a graduate of the College of Tourism and Hotel Management in Bad Gleichenberg, Austria, and completed a degree in Food & Hospitality Management at Martin College in Brisbane, AUS. Upon receiving his Master of Wine title in 2012, Andreas won four awards for excellence in particular areas of the exam, including the much acclaimed Madame Bollinger medal for outstanding achievement in the practical paper. He also is a lecturer at the Austrian Wine Academy and judge at international wine competitions.
