Austrian Wines and Bangkok Wine Expo 2019 -
Interview with Gunther Sucher
Exclusive interview with Mr. Gunther Sucher, the
Commercial Counsellor of Advantage Austria at the Austrian Embassy
in Bangkok, Thailand.
In this interview, filmed on 15 February 2019,
Steven Howard asks Mr. Gunther what plans Austria has for the
upcoming Bangkok Wine Expo 2019 which will take place at the
Shangri-La Hotel on 22 February.
Mr. Sucher tells us how many wine
producers from Austria will be participating this year, how that
compares to last year and what they expect to get from the event.
We also discuss Austrian wine in general, how much of it is
exported, where most of the exported wine goes, and how important
the Thai market is to Austria's wine industry.
explains what varieties of wine the country produces, which are
most popular here in south east Asia, and how they differ not only
from other wines in Europe, but also to those wines that are now
being produced in Thailand.
We discuss how Advantage Austria
promotes wine in the Kingdom of Thailand and elsewhere in the
region, how it works with sommeliers so that they in turn can
better educate the end consumer at the point of sale, and
much, much more in the video and podcast below.
