Give Austrian wine

As the Advent season gets underway, we begin to think about appropriate presents for those closest to us. Thanks to its depth and stylistic wealth, the wide-ranging world of Austrian wine can offer the perfect gift on every occasion – an expansive and colourful palette of different vintages, appellations of origin and grape varieties.

In short: Austrian wine is the perfect Christmas present!

Parallel to our domestic poster campaign ‘Give Austrian Wine’, we have invited our community to post their personal ‘Gift of Wine’ moments on Social Media.

You can join us here in discovering the Christmas-y side of Austrian wine!
