Skiing & Wine
Ski amadé ski huts have a reputation with guests for good quality and a convivial atmosphere. In Austria, skiing, good food and a nice glass of wine are inseparable. This winter, the combination has been perfected to heighten the enjoyable experience when skiing in Ski amadé. Selected, certified huts will be offering a diverse range of high-quality Austrian wines and the "Genuss-Partner" certification outside a hut will help to point skiers in the right direction. The landlords have to meet strict criteria in order to be awarded a certificate. They have to offer a specific number of Austrian wines which guests can enjoy by the glass. The wines must be served in suitable glasses and staff must be given training in Austrian wines. The landlords are assisted and certified by Austrian Wine Marketing (ÖWM) and the Salzburg Sommeliers' Association. By the start of the season many huts in the ski association will already be able to flaunt their signs (see below). Other ski huts are in the process of being certified.
This initiative will culminate in the ski and wine-tasting week, from 09 to 16 March 2013. In addition to events at the ski huts, selected regional hotels will offer many specialities associated with Austrian wine and wine growing during this period.
