Due to more favourable climatic conditions most wine-growing regions are located in the eastern part of the country. You will however find winegrowing to a smaller extent all over the rest of Austria as well.

Austria‘s wine-growing area comprises 44,537 ha. The federal states of Niederösterreich (26,968 ha), Burgenland (11,648 ha) and Steiermark (5,114 ha) are defined as generic wine-growing regions, there are also 17 specific wine-growing regions, including Wien (582 ha) and the area Bergland with five wine-growing regions (Kärnten, Oberösterreich, Salzburg, Tirol, Vorarlberg).

Niederösterreich


Niederösterreich

Niederösterreich (Lower Austria) is Austria’s largest Qualitätswein wine-growing region. This region is associated with a wealth of different origins and wine styles produced from unique domestic grapes, as well as international varieties. Niederösterreich is home to eight specific Qualitätswein wine-growing regions, ranging from Wachau in the west to Carnuntum in the east. It can be divided into three rough climate zones: the Weinviertel in the north, the Danube region and its tributary valleys to the west of Vienna, and Niederösterreich, with its Pannonian climate, in the south-east.
