World Wine Festival
Palais Coburg, Vienna

Five free tickets to give away to wineanorak readers!

From April 19th to 22nd, 2006 there's a super event taking place at the wonderful Palais Coburg, and I've been given five free tickets to distribute to wineanorak readers. These will permit free entrance to the Forum on 20, 21 or 22 April. For more information on this, see the press release below, and if you are interested, contact me at jamie@wineanorak.co.uk - the first five readers to respond will get free tickets. (Please only reply if you are sure you will use the tickets.)

"More than 60 top culinary stars have a date at Vienna´s Palais Coburg in April 2006. For four days there, renowned wine makers, chefs, cheese affineurs, and other international culinary experts, will present their exquisite tastebud temptations and other fine delectables at numerous events taking place in the palace. Between April 19th and April 22nd, Vienna and the Palais Coburg will indeed be the center of the world of tasting pleasure and enjoyment.

The World Wine Festival was founded 10 years ago in Bad Ragaz, Switzerland, as a bi-annual summit held there to celebrate pleasure on the highest levels; as a unifying link between nationalities, world philosophies and wine ideologies. And now, the management of Palais Coburg in Vienna has succeeding in acquiring the license to hold the festival outside of Switzerland for the first time.

Along with a grand forum, at which nearly 60 international wineries will be present over three afternoons, a total of 20 culinary events will be featured during the four-day festival in Vienna. These range from an 'aroma experience' with Jean Lenoir (Le Nez du Vin), to a tasting of wines and chocolates; and from an 'East meets West' workshop (Austrian wines with Asian cuisine) to a wine auction and a tasting of the 'Best Wines of the Millennium' given by Serena Sutcliffe MW. The breadth and scale of the festival offers something for every palate and every pleasure-seeker's budget.

Besides Palais Coburg as the center of the event, other top Viennese restaurants such as the Steirereck, Meinl am Graben, Walter Bauer, the Schwarze Kameel and the Hotel Marriott will participate as festival sites as well.
