Austria Gruner Veltliner Kremstal Kamptal

Archaeological evidence suggests that grapevines have been grown and cultivated in what is today modern Austria for over four thousand years, making it one of the oldest wine producing countries in the world. Over the centuries, relatively little has changed in Austrian wine, with the dominant grape varietals continuing to be Grüner Veltliner, Zweigelt, Pinot Noir and others. Austria is renowned for producing excellent and characterful dry white wines, although in the eastern part of the country, many wineries specialist in sweeter white wines made in a similar style to those of neighboring Hungary. Today, Austria has over fifty thousand hectares under vine, split over four key wine regions. The domestic wine industry remains strong, with Austrians drinking their local produce outside in the summer, and people around the world are beginning to once more rediscover this fascinating and ancient wine culture.

Gruner Veltliner is a pale skinned white wine grape varietal most closely associated with central European countries such as Austria, the Czech Republic and Slovakia. In recent years, it has spread somewhat to several New World countries, where it is becoming gradually more popular and regularly seen in wine stores. One of the main attractions of this grape varietal for winemakers is the fact that it is highly versatile, and can be used for the production of several different wine styles, including young, dry white wines, excellent sparkling wines, and it is also a grape varietal which is well suited for aging Gruner Veltliner has the ability to express much of its terroir, and the best examples are generally those which are full of delightfully mineral-rich flavors alongside the more usual notes of citrus fruits and peach.

The beautiful, airy and rolling landscape of Austria's Kremstal wine region is one of the most important and highly regarded in all of central Europe. Indeed, the three thousand hectares of vineyards which cover this stunning and special region are responsible for producing Austria's most characterful wines. The spicy, unique and vibrant Gruner Veltliner grapes which grow in abundance around Kremstal and Kamptal have made Austrian wines a favorite with European royalty for centuries, and the wine industry of this region is finding new fans and admirers across the world in the modern age. As well as the Gruner Veltliner wines made here, the region is also famous for its mineral rich Riesling wines, the grapes of which thrive in the cooler climate found across Kremstal and the banks of the mighty river Danube.
