Opening Ceremony and Gala Dinner

After almost 20 years, Austria had the honor of hosting a major international event for the sommelier scene in 2017 again: the European Sommelier Championship. This provided the unique opportunity to bring the Wine Summit and the Championship in a fruitful symbiosis. The opening event of the European Championships on the 8th of May in the Orangerie Schönbrunn thus became the prelude to the Wine Summit.
