8th Orange Wine Festival Vienna – 28. October 2019 at MQ

On Monday, October 28, 2019 from 14:00 to 20:30

we invite you to join us at one of the biggest orange wine exhibitions so far. Orange wines represent a relatively small, but very important niche in the global wine market, because respect for tradition combined with modern wine production insights have proven to be a winning formula for both producers and consumers. This year OWF introduces something new: winemakers will also be exhibiting red wines produced using the same method as orange wine.

Maceration or prolonged contact with grape skins is a traditional white wine production method to which more and more winemakers are returning, both in places where this was traditional and those where it is a new approach to the art of winemaking. To participate at the OrangeWineFestival with their wines , winemakers must confirm that their wines comply with the Festival’s standards including the use of natural procedures, prolonged maceration, spontaneous fermentation, as little intervention in the cellar as possible and low sulphite content.

Entrance fee (around € 30,–) can be paid at the welcome desk at MQ Oval Halle

Vor einigen Jahren machte ich das erste Mal Bekanntschaft mit den naturbelassenen Orange Wines. Die Stimmigkeit dieser naturbelassenen Weine und dieser besonderen Winzer, war für mich sofort spürbar! Als gebürtiges „Wirtshaus-Kind“ hatte ich schon immer viel Einblick in die Gastronomie- und Touristikbranche gehabt. Obgleich ich kein Weinexperte bin, bringe ich doch einiges an Praxiserfahrung mit. Ich habe mir in den letzten Jahren – in zahlreichen Gesprächen mit Winzern – viel Wissen über diese Art der Vinifizierung sowie den bio-dynamischen Weinbau angeeignet. Somit habe ich mir nunmehr das Ziel auferlegt, diese bio-dynamischen Weine einer interessierten, wertschätzenden und aufgeschlossenen Personenschicht zugänglich zu machen!
