In addition to the overwhelmingly positive feedback from the sommelier association, the three world champion winemakers in attendance were also able to enjoy a very special honor: they were swiftly made members of the Brotherhood of St. Cristoph – in the truest sense of the word. With the words “According to old brotherhood custom, you belong in our midst with this stroke” and a 15.5 kilogram sword from the 14th century, Mario Weber, Roland Riegelnegg and Florian Lieleg were struck to become the newest members of the oldest charitable association in the Alps. The brotherhood, which has existed since 1386, is committed to helping people in need – especially families with children. The members of the Brotherhood meet weekly in the Wine Dome of the Hospiz Alm am Arlberg to discuss current affairs, welcome new members and enjoy selected wines together.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved for this great opportunity, the fantastic tasting and the impressive hospitality – it was a pleasure!
