Austria & Hungary

discover Austria & Hungary

In the heart of continental Europe lies Austria, a reasonably small wine producing country that is enjoying a period of growth and higher standing amongst wine lovers around the world. The best examples of Austrian wines are found in the heartlands of Wachau, Wagram and Kremstal, all in Niederosterreich; the largest wine growing region in the country. It encompasses eight separate sub-regions that stretch from Wachau in the west to Carnuntum in the east.

In true continental style, winters are harsh and cold but summers are generally hot and dry. Most of the best white wine vineyards are moderated by proximity to the Danube river. In particular, Wachau is UNESCO world heritage approved, and famed for its beautiful steep terraced vineyards that flank the Danube valley. Here, as in Wagram and Kremstal, the top Rieslings (usually the most concentrated and intense) are designated “Smaragd” while the more moderate examples are called “Federspiel”, and the lightest “Steinfeder”.

Appellations of Austria & Hungary

The regions of Austria and Hungary have been producing wines for hundreds of years. Undoubtedly the most famous of these are the sweet wines of Tokaji, Hungary - although there are also delicious dry wines to be found here too. And Austria is producing wines of exceptional quality in Carnuntum.

Grape Varieties of Austria & Hungary

Austria's famous indigenous grape, Gruner Veltliner, has recently gained quite the reputation across the globe and is now spoken about in the same breath as its noble German neighbour Riesling. This white wine grape is now venturing out from that almighty Germanic shadow and is proving pivotal in making fine quality Austrian wines that are not only, young, fresh things suitable for consuming young but also fit, full-bodied wines that have proved well capable of ageing and enjoying in years to come. Also worth noting when it comes to Austria specifically is the red grape Blaufränkisch – it produces peppery, spicy wine that lends itself well to aging and is often blended with Cab. Sauvignon or Pinot Noir. Moving over to Hungary and there are several grapes that go into the production of its most famous wine – Tokaji – these include Furmint – the most commonly used, Hárslevelu (also known as Feuille de Tilleul) and Zéta.
