In the past, the sweet wine segment often featured only Welschriesling. Now, especially in the Seewinkel area of Burgenland, the variety spectrum is much broader.

Most of the vines cultivated in Austria are qualified for the production of sweet wines: from Chardonnay and Weißburgunder to Bouvier (a generous sugar producer) and aroma-rich varieties like Muskateller, Muskat- Ottonel, Traminer, Sauvignon Blanc and Sämling (Scheurebe). Aldo Riesling the Danube valley – even despite the small quantities – is quite exciting. Veltliner continues to demonstrate its impressive qualities even in the Eiswein style – with Großriedental am Wagram established as an important center of production.

Dessert wine lovers often prefer cuvées made from an assortment of grape varieties; this can provide for an excitingly harmonious and adventurous taste experience!
