Austria has become an increasingly important producer of quality wines and has lead the way in creating signature styles of wine.
The Grüner Veltliner grape is king in Austria producing spicy, aromatic white wines of great quality. Other white grapes used are Riesling, Chardonnay, Welschriesling, Weissburgunder and Sauvignon Blanc.
Red wines are produced from Blaufrankisch, Zweigelt, Pinot Noir (sometimes known as Blauburgunder) and Saint-Laurent grape varieties.
Austria has four main regions which are in order of the largest, Niederösterreich, Burgenland, Steiermark and Wien. There are sixteen sub regions within these regions.
