AUSTRIAN producers of food and gastronomic equipment, as well as winemakers from Burgenland, attended the 20th year of the international gastronomy fair Danubius Gastro. The event was part of the annual tourism fair held in Bratislava between January 24 and 27, the Austrian Embassy wrote on its website.
They exhibited their products at a joint booth, at which the Austrian Chamber of Commerce, represented in Slovakia by Advantage Austria, was present too.
Slovak President Ivan Gašparovič and Austrian Ambassador to Slovakia Markus Wuketisch sampled Burgenland wines.
Slovaks had another chance to taste Burgenland wines in mid April at the Radisson Blu Carlton Hotel. More than 70 winemakers presented more than 500 wines at the fifth Burgenland wine tasting.
2012 was a good year for Burgenland wines, which were distinguished by a fruity and full-bodied flavour.
