The State Control Number (Prüfnummer) and the Red-White-Red Capsule

Austrian Qalitätswein, regionally typical wines (DAC) and Austrian Prädikatswein have undergone two rigourous inspections, firstly through a chemical analysis and additionally through a tasting commission by qualified and state authorised wine tasters.

The regionally typical DAC wines are examined further, to confirm their regional typicity. The state control number in conjunction with the red-white-red (representing the Austrian flag) capsule are proof of these arduous and rigourous quality control measures.
