Wine has been a part of Austria’'s culture for more than two millennia. Even today, there are Roman cellars, medieval villages and Baroque monasteries and estates found throughout our wine regions.

Of course, while we maintain a deep respect for our long-lived wine tradition, we are in the unique position of utilizing it as a foundation for a contemporary wine culture – one that is dened by dynamic winemakers and wineries taking Austrian wines to a new level of quality. But this “rebirth” is reected not only in the delicious wines themselves, but also through the new Austrian winery architecture boom that is capturing international attention - and accolades.
