Cool Wines by the Glass

Austrian Quality Wines come primarily from the four federal states Niederösterreich (Lower Austria), Burgenland, Steiermark (Styria) and Wien (Vienna), which produce a wide range of contrasting styles from 36 permitted grape varieties.

Within these states there are sub-regions ranging from Wachau to Südsteiermark, all of which feature their flagship regional specialties.

In today’s restaurant scene all over the world, wine directors and sommeliers have carefully selected wines for their by-the-glass programmes, to excite their customers and introduce them to those grape varieties which pair most effectively with the chef’s culinary stylings—bottlings which hit the appropriate price-points.
