Austria

Austrian wines are mostly dry white wines (often made from the Gruner Veltliner grape) with some luscious dessert wines made around the Neusiedler See. About 30% of the wines are red, made from Blaufrankisch ( also known as Lemberger, or as Kekfrankos in neighboring Hungary), Pinot Noir, and locally grown varieties such as Zweigelt. Austria is making a comeback as a producer of quality wines that stand comparison with the best in the world.

Weinviertel

The Weinviertel lies in the northeast corner of Austria, between the Danube and the Czech & Slovak borders. The biggest single wine region in Austria is home to half the Gruner Veltliner in the country ( subject of the first DAC), and considerable amounts of Welschrielsing, but most of Austria's varieties can be found here. Even sparkling wine is made from Riesling and Gruner Veltliner in the far northeast around Poysdorf, a particularly picturesque town in a country with more than her fair share of pretty wine country.
