The 2nd day of the annual meeting of the Wassersommelier Union e.V. is obligatorily characterized by the ordinary general meeting and the mineral water celebration day.
Ordinary General Meeting
The essential point of the ordinary general meeting 2023 was the accountability report of the board of directors for the period from October 2022 to October 2023. The response of our members and supporting members is steadily increasing! This year we had the pleasure to welcome members from 16 different countries (Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Great Britain, India, Latvia, Portugal, Singapore, Slovenia, Spain, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, USA) in Vienna! This is really great!
Mineral Water Celebration Day – Quellenland Österreich
Fresh, pure water! A wealth in which the Alpine Republic of Austria has been swimming since time immemorial. That is why the Alps are also called the water castle of Europe. According to experts, Austria could supply over 400 million people with drinking water. This year’s Mineral Water Celebration Day will highlight the history of Austria’s spring landscape, the history of Austria’s spa culture and the special features surrounding mineral and medicinal water legislation in Austria. There are 40 springs recognized as natural mineral water and 118 recognized medicinal springs in Austria, with Vöslauer being the number 1 on the mineral water market in Austria. With today’s day, the participants could not only refresh their cross-national knowledge, but also prove their sensory skills from some selected Austrian mineral and medicinal waters.
Many thanks at this point especially to Gerlinde and Peter for the extremely interesting contribution.
