Austria

Austrian wines are mostly dry white wines (often made from the Grüner Veltliner grape), though some sweeter white wines (such as dessert wines made around the Neusiedler See) are also produced. About 30% of the wines are red, made from Blaufränkisch (also known as Lemberger, or as Kékfrankos in neighboring Hungary), Pinot Noir and locally bred varieties such as Zweigelt.

In 2005 Austria had 51,213 hectares of vineyards, almost all of it in the east of the country. Today Austria lies 18th in the list of wine producing countries by volume (2010), but the wines are now of a quality that can take on and beat the best in the world.
