AUSTRIA

Winemaking has been a part of Austria's legacy for more than 2,800 years. The diversity of the land, from rocky Danube terraces to volcanic basalt in the Kamptal, allows the country to produce exceptional wines from indigenous varietals such as Gr?ner Veltliner and Zweigelt, along with international plantings of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Austria's unique geographical location contributes to the dynamic flavors of its wines. Although the country's wine producing regions are along the same latitude as Burgundy in France, the variations in temperature are much more extreme. The hot days of summer followed by cool nights, play a major role in the production of crisp, aromatic whites that are elegant on the palate.

While Austrians respect the history and tradition of wine, they are at the forefront of contemporary wine culture. Their unwavering commitment to quality stems from the country's intrinsic love of nature. At this point in time, nearly all vineyards and wineries in Austria participate in minimum-intervention programs and/or organic farming. Currently, Austria holds the world record for organic practices in both their farmland and vineyards.
