  • About

The most commonly planted vine variety in austria is grown elsewhere in eastern Europe and is increasingly respected worldwide. This well-adapted variety is planted on 14,641 ha/36,163 acres of Austria, particularly in Lower Austria, where it represents more than half of total white grape production, and in the Vienna region, where it comprises about a third of all plantings. dna profiling in Austria has shown that Grüner Veltliner is not genetically related to roter veltliner or frühroter veltliner.
