Expansive winegrowing region along the Danube
Spread over some 28,000 hectares, Lower Austria is the country’s largest winegrowing region. The history of viniculture in Lower Austria, where the vines shape the landscape, culture and everyday routines, stretches back several millennia. A rich selection of styles, rarities and international grape types are cultivated in the eight individual winegrowing districts. Characterful white wines are typical of Lower Austria, especially world-class Green Veltliners and Rieslings. The steep vineyard terraces lining Wachau valley and the narrow alleyways flanked by cellars in the Weinviertel area are certainly worth a visit.
