Grape variety

Neuburger

Neuburger is Austria

This white wine is produced from a native Austrian grape variety, which most probably has its origin in the Wachau region, but nowadays is mainly found in the Thermenregion and on the Leithaberg in Burgenland. The natural cross of Red Veltliner x Silvaner has fallen into oblivion in recent decades and is no longer widespread across Austria, having given way to the highly popular Grüner Veltliner. It is a vigorously growing variety, which also thrives in barren, drier vineyards. It produces strong, fine spicy wines with lower acidity, which generates a yellowish aroma. Over time, the wines also develop nutty notes. Most Neuburger wines have great maturing potential and are reminiscent of a more rustic Pinot Blanc. In Burgenland, the Neuburger grape may be used in the production of the white Leithaberg DAC. Currently the area under cultivation in Austria amounts to 497 ha, which is barely 1.1% of the national total.

Burgenland: Reds, sweets and other wonders

Burgenland is often referred to in Austria as the new wine world. In fact, wines – with exceptions like the nobly sweet Ruster Ausbruch – were almost entirely unknown here 20 years ago. Today, the most substantial red wines in Austria mature here. And the sweet wine scene is also stronger than ever before. Even the whites – for instance, in the Leitha Mountains – are on the upswing. The basis for this wine wonder are the various terroirs that overlay the land in a complex patchwork.

Austria – Sumptuous culture, accessible to all

Austria is characterized by unbelievable topographical diversity. A flat steppe in the east, forests and hills in the Alpine regions, wetlands and Mediterranean landscapes in the south. This in addition to a rich tradition and even greater love. It’s no surprise that the Romans found joy on this patch of Earth and cultivated wine growing. Austrian wine is not abundant, but it is high quality.
