Specific quality wine: profile

Austria presently has 17 specific wine-growing regions:

All specific wine-growing regions work on strong profiling with origin-typical terroir wines. For the first step, focal varieties and region-typical wine styles are defined. When this process has been completed, the region can – via the regional and national committees of the Ministry of Agriculture – apply for DAC status. This becomes law through ministerial directive.
