Austria

The gorgeous rolling hills of Lower Austria (or Niederösterreich) run along the Danube River and are home to 27,128 hectares of vines. In modern times, this area of Austria has moved away from mass-produced wine and is now hailed as one of the country’s largest quality wine producing regions. 44% of the vineyards in Lower Austria are planted with its star grape variety, the zippy, fresh and savoury Gruner Veltliner, native to Austria. Riesling is also commonly grown here. While production focuses on dry, aromatic white wines, Austria is also producing mind-blowing noble rot dessert wines.
