Lower Austrian Winemakers Support Tradition and Innovations

Wine has been grown in Lower Austria for over 4,000 years and a wine culture has emerged in many ways similar to the Czech or Slovak one, but in various respects it is unique in the world. Lower Austrian winemakers not only maintain old customs, but also innovate them. The wines are characterized by the interconnectedness of the region with traditions and the courage to introduce modern methods.

Many successful winemakers come from Lower Austria. They thrive here mainly due to their craftsmanship, relationship and respect for traditions and the extraordinary soil of this vast country. It is especially ideal for Veltlin Green, Riesling, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

And where can you find the most interesting wines? You will discover a local rarity in the form of Veltlin Red in Austria's oldest winery, the Stift Klosterneuburg Abbey. Thanks to conscious winemakers, you can also taste various indigenous varieties this year - that is, grape varieties that have been bred on their own without human intervention, such as Rotgipfler and Zierfandler in the Wienerwald region.

Magical Vineyards, Traditional Wine Streets and Modern Wine Architecture

Visit the most beautiful wine-growing villages, which look like from a romantic film or a gastronomic magazine. Lower Austria is the largest producer of wines from all regions of Austria and has a deep wine culture and history.

The Lower Austrian region is also characterized by the greatest contrast to wine architecture. In addition to the ancient cellars, the brick paths in Poysdorf or the beautiful colorful Holzapfel winery, there are also modern buildings, award-winning architectural works and square wine shops, such as the Loisium or Rosenberger. Tastings directly in the vine also have a long tradition.
