Wines from Austria
Austrian wine is produced under many different influences such as the unique climate, the land and soil, the grape varieties, the culture, the environment and the people. Sparkling sparkling wines, classic fresh to full white wines, rosé wines like the Schilcher, fruity to rich red wines and also noble sweet ice wines thrive.
The land and the grape varieties
Beautiful Austria is a world-famous tourist destination, especially the combination of hospitality, culinary delights and wine culture is incomparable. Its different geological conditions characterise the wine-growing regions, the 46,500 hectares of the country. Incomparable landscapes such as the classic wine-growing regions along the Danube, the rugged small-scale hilly landscapes in Styria and Burgenland with all its natural jewels - the lakes. Individual landscapes create special wines. The decisive factor for this, apart from the climate, is the condition of the soil: from loess layers, stone terraces to calcareous and volcanic subsoils.
Culture and wine
The Austrian culture is inevitably connected with the cultivation of wine, the knowledge of wine production was transferred by the Romans and further developed in monasteries.
Today Austria is one of the most modern wine-growing countries and this is reflected in the architecture of wine-growing regions and new wine creations. Nevertheless, tradition lives on in wine.
