vineyard history

strict regulations

A brief history of the vineyard

Viticulture in Austria is millenary. It has flourished since ancient times and has truly left its mark on the landscapes and the culture.

Since the 1980s, Austrian governmental measures have gradually established strict regulations on wine production. This has led Austria to be among the most restrictive countries in Europe, in order to prevent the effects of globalization that could spoil the quality of Austrian production.


grape variety

Grüner Veltliner
and Riesling

The white grape varieties alone represent 80% of the grape varieties.

The emblematic grape varieties are Grüner Veltliner and Riesling.

Müller-Thurgau, Welschriesling (also used for sweet wines), Pinot blanc, Pinot gris, and Sauvignon blanc are also produced in a smaller amount.

For red wines, indigenous varieties such as Zweigelt, Blaufränkisch and Saint-Laurent prevail and are of great finesse. But international varieties such as Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Cabernet Franc are also cultivated under the Austrian latitudes.
