Georgian wine impresses at Austrian wine fair

05.09.2014. The unique taste of Georgian wine tickled the taste buds of Austrian wine lovers at one of the country’s leading wine fairs.

The Georgian embassy in Austria ran a Georgian wine stall at the Austrian Wine Fair, dedicated to the 900th anniversary of the Klosterneuburg Monastery – one of the architectural jewels of Austria.

The Klosterneuburg Monastery has been the centre of spiritual, economic, social and cultural life in the region for almost a thousand years. It is also Austria’s oldest and largest winery and as the country’s first carbon neutral wine producer, it continues to be one of the most visionary, Austrian wine experts said.

Since its establishment in 1114, the Monastery has cultivated vineyards and produced wine from its 266 acres, which spread out over four different villages in the region.

Representatives of Georgia’s Alaverdi Monastery, which continued to use an 11th Century method to produce "Wine of Monks”, were invited to the wine festival alongside famous European wine producers.

The Brotherhood of the Alaverdy Monastery gifted 72 bottles of traditional wine to the Klosterneuburg Monastery to thank it for inviting them to the international wine fair.
