The Wines of Austria
Grüner Veltliner is Austria's flagship variety and covers 1/3 of Austria's total vineyard area. Around the globe, Grüner Veltliner is highly appreciated and it has great favor in the fine wine world. A leading American importer and wine expert put it into words: “The more you spend, the better the value!”. However, the climate and soil are suitable for a diversity of indigenous and international grape varieties as well as distinctive styles - from fresh and crisp to nobly sweet wines.
Austria’s go-to red wines made from Zweigelt, Blaufränkisch and St.Laurent are gaining popularity. And then there's Austria's Riesling - always dry, delicious and so food-friendly!
And with these outstanding wines, try the most classic Viennese recipe: Wiener Schnitzel.
Austrian wines are very versatile and boast one of the highest ratios for vineyard sustainability - over 14% are farmed organically.
