Austria, a wine country

Wine culture is lived and celebrated with "Heurigen" and "Buschenschanken"

Small but mighty, quality before quantity. These words characterise the wine-growing regions in Austria. The origins of this traditional and historic wine country go back more than 2700 years, as vines were already cultivated here in Roman times. Most of the 46,000 hectares of Austrian vineyards are cultivated in the east and southeast of the country, in the regions of Burgenland and Lower Austria, but Styria and Vienna are also known for viticulture.

Besides Wiener Schnitzel, Austria is known in the culinary world above all for its autochthonous grape variety Grüner Veltliner, which accounts for over 1/3 of the total vineyard area. In addition, red wines are also made from typical grape varieties such as Blaufränkischer, Zweigelt or St. Laurent.
