Austrian wine is one of the most interesting phenomena happening in the world right now. The wines are found on every good wine list, are appreciated by wine experts and highly acclaimed by journalists. It is not uncommon to talk of an Austrian wine wonder.
What is it, that makes Austrian wines so special?
A prime reason is a tradition of winemaking, and grapevines have been cultivated in the same viticultural regions to be found in today’s Austria for around 2000 years.
The Austrian vintners and producers have all comprehended how important it is to successfully combine traditional viticulture with modern vinification processes. The motto is, quality without compromise and the result was a very vibrant and active wine culture.
Another significance is the diversity of Austrian wine, from lively, light-bodied examples to monumental, opulent white wines, as well as charming, fruity to full-bodied, red wines with long cellaring potential. Last, but not least, a wide variety of enticing and elegant sweet wines, that are certainly amongst the world’s best.
