Austria for the first time

This trip was a first for me and for Freddy Bulmer in his capacity as your new buyer of Austrian wine.

I hadn't visited the country before so was keen to learn all about it and its wines, and was wowed as much by its rich history and gothic charm as I was inspired by its new generation of forward-looking winemakers.
