Austria

"Due to more favourable climatic conditions most winegrowing regions are located in the eastern part of the country. You will however find winegrowing to a smaller extent all over the rest of Austria as well.

The federal states of Niederösterreich (28,145 ha), Burgenland (13,100 ha) and Steiermark (4,633 ha) are defined as distinct wine regions, there are also 17  other wine regions, including Wien (637 ha) and the area Bergland with five winegrowing regions (Kärnten, Oberösterreich, Salzburg, Tirol, Vorarlberg)....

Austria offers excellent sites for growing internationally known varieties such as Riesling, Weissburgunder, Chardonnay, Muskateller, Traminer, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. But even more important is the precious portfolio of domestic grape varieties, with Grüner Veltliner at the top of the list. This white variety alone accounts for almost one third of Austria’s plantings. In addition to Grüner Veltliner, other white varieties such as Neuburger, Rotgipfler, Ziefandler and Roter Veltliner – as well as the red varieties Zweigelt, Blaufränkisch, Sankt Laurent and Blauer Wildbacher – are highly respected and, in fact, treasured once again." - Austrian Wine
