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.

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.

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.
