2020 was a difficult year in many ways. March brought us the first lockdown, spring was extremely dry, summer was hot and kept bringing modest rainfall to Carnuntum, while September let the grapes ripen in sunny and dry weather. Fortunately, Carnuntum had already finished its harvest before the heavy autumn rains hit the country further west. And a great vintage is upon us!
The speaker will be, the one and only, Stuart Pigott.

About Carnuntum Academy
The Carnuntum Academy is an initiative created by winegrowers from Carnuntum, designed to give wine industry professionals (hospitality, import, trade & press) the opportunity to continue their education in an uncomplicated and efficient manner. Distinguished speakers, together with winegrowers, will guide participants through the individual sessions, which will be held in German and English. In the first year of the Carnuntum Academy, a great deal of attention will be paid to Zweigelt, since it is celebrating two significant anniversaries in 2022. Exactly 100 years ago, the grape variety was first created with the name »Rotburger«. The eponymous wine Rubin Carnuntum – which was also bottled for the first time thirty years ago – can look back on a unique success story as a regional branded wine.
