Wine from Lower Austria
Lower Austria is home to the largest contiguous wine-growing region in Austria.
It covers an area of 28,100 hectares and is divided into eight wine regions: Carnuntum, Kamptal, Kremstal, Thermenregion, Traisental, Wachau, Wagram and Weinviertel.
Climatic conditions and wines
The climate can be divided into three categories: the north, the Danube region and the Pannonian region.
The Weinviertel, which is known above all for its Grüner Veltliner, is also a region of origin for other sparkling white wines, fruity red wines and sweet wines.
The Weinviertel DAC is available as a peppery Grüner Veltliner and also as a strong variant, called Reserve.
The wine villages are lined up along the Danube, also the Riesling is resident here. These two main grape varieties are marketed as Kremstal DAC, Kamptal DAC and Traisental DAC. Steep slopes give way to terraced cultivation and produce noble Pinot Blanc, Chardonnay but also exclusive red wines on lime-free soils.
Some of these specialities are St. Laurent, Pinot Noir, Zierfandler and Rotgipfler around Gumpoldskirchen.
