Varietal: Gruner Veltliner
Grüner Veltliner is usually produced to be very dry with spicy, peppery notes and a beautiful minerality. It is often full-bodied and though it is generally consumed young, with age it can take on aromas and flavors similar to white Burgundies.

Country: Austria
Austria's reputation for its wine has progressively matched that of its great stem ware (Riedel and Schott Zwiesel, to name a couple) and is now offering some of the best values at all price points. Split up into three main regions, the majority of production occurs in the flat fertile plains of Niederösterreich, or Lower Austria, in the north east corner of the country. The sub-regions of Kamptal, Kremstal, and Wachau offer some of the finest Rieslings and national specialty, Gruner Veltiner, Austria's number one grape which accounts for a third of vines across the country. Burgenland is Austria's second largest and sunniest region. Known for its reds and sweet botrytized whites, red grapes Zweiglet and Blaufränkisch is increasing popularity producing light wines similar to intensity to Pinot Noir. Although most white wine varieties are diminishing in prominence Sauvignon Blanc and Muscat are on the up. Lastly, Seiermark or Styria, the country's most southerly and smallest region accounting for about 7% of output. A lot of which is consumed locally at Huerigen, or bars, set up by the winemakers. Welschriesling is the most popular however Sauvignon Blanc is quickly catching up.

Region: Wagram
The winegrowing region Wagram received its new name in 2007, previously known as Donauland. The 2,720 hectares of vines are planted in two distinct zones; one to the north and one to the south of the Danube River. The northern, actual Wagram part, is a striking terrain that stretches some 30km along the northern bank of the river as far as Kamptal, while the area toward the south encompasses the quaint villages around the Tullnerfeld region as well as the historic wine town of Klosterneuburg, just outside Vienna.

Sub-Region: NA

Type: White
White wine is a wine whose color can be pale-yellow, yellow-green, and yellow-gold colored. The wine is produced from a variety of grape varieties. The flavor and color comes from the juice of the grape and sometimes the skin of the grape as well. Interestingly, not all white wine comes from white grapes. Some select red grapes are used as in Champagne.
