Austria's special geographic setting is the most important factor for the exceptional quality of its wines.

Although Austria is at the same latitude as Burgundy, it is much more centrally located within Europe. It is consequently in the transitional zone between the mild and damp Atlantic climate, and the continental Pannonian one, which has much wider variations in temperature. Warm, sunny summer and autumn days with northerly, cool nights are key to the development of fresharomatic wines with good body and fine character. There is simply no other place on earth where the refreshing wines are so concentrated, or where opulent wines exhibit such grace.
