These days were celebrated and enjoyed in the Knappenwelt in Tarrenz, Tyrol's town with the most winegrowers, wines and vintners from the town, the region and the Via Claudia Augusta. The festival was a successful co-production of Imst Tourism and the Tarrenz Wine Growers' Association. The Tyrolean winegrowing scene is growing. About 10,000 bottles a year are pressed, a large part of them in Tarrenz. The quantity is still manageable, but the quality is remarkable. This was demonstrated, for example, at the international wine award "VINUM ANNI 2017" of the Via Claudia Augusta in Augsburg, where Tyrol held its own among the wine regions along the Roman road and brought home 3 medals. The certificates were officially handed over again at the festival - to the Zoller-Saumwald Winery from Haiming (gold) and to the Tagl Winery in Tarrenz and Terra Austriacus in Prutz (both silver). Also present at the festival were the 11 gold-winning wines from the other regions along the Via Claudia Augusta. They provided a worthy setting for the excellent Tyrolean wines, as did the successful festival around the fine wines and the interested, enthusiastic visitors who, in addition to the wine, enjoyed ham, cheese, Roman bread and barley soup made to an original recipe from 2000 years ago. It is already decided that the festival will be repeated next year - probably on 16 September 2018.
