austrian grapesWhile Austria may be more famous for its mountainous Alpine terrain, wine lovers may be surprised to learn that Austria has a winemaking industry dating back 1,000 years.

Today, Austrian wines are often overshadowed by the proximity to France and Germany with bigger reputations for being top wine producers.

That is beginning to change, however, as the world reacquaints itself to the wonders of the wines produced in the country's four major wine producing regions.

These include sunny Burgenland, the Styrian Wine Road (Steiermark), around Lower Austria (Niederösterreich, the country's biggest wine producer with 60% of the vines), and even in and around the capital city of Vienna (Wien).

While the Grüner Veltliner may be Austria's signature wine, glowing reviews of the whites and red of many varieties are capturing international attention and awards.
