KARAKTERRE is one of the world’s leading wine festivals, showcasing organic, biodynamic, and natural wines from Central and Eastern Europe over a two-day event. It takes place annually at historic locations in Austria (at the esterhazy castle in eisenstadt, the capital of burgenland winemaking region) and new york (at rockefeller center, in the heart of manhattan). with ecology at its core, KARAKTERRE festival PROMOTES WINERIES commited to values of sustainable living.

KARAKTERRE RETURNS EACH YEAR due to COLLECTIVE ENERGIES and, of course, THE SUPPORT OF both public organizations and private sponsors, including winemakers. AUSTRIAN WINE, IN PARTICULAR, IS OUR MAJOR PARTNER. our partners included companies such as rockefeller center management; voeslauer (europe) and rambler (us) waters; ravenscroft crystal; sum up technologies; korkindustrie trier; littlewine and the waves wine start-ups; alongwith raisin providing media support.

KARAKTERRE was born out of a passion for wine and sustainable farming. Festival organizers and team members have been integral members of the organic, biodynamic, and natural wine community for more than two decades. their relationships now extend beyond just wine and to the winemakers who consistently demonstrate their commitment to nature.

KARAKTERRE is run by a handful of individuals, but it is the wine professionals and amateurs of this community who support it, promote it, and grow with it. Thank you.
