Common name in Austria for a white wine from the east of the wine-growing region Weinviertel (Lower Austria). The name is derived from the old trade route "Brünner Straße", which leads from Wien to Brünn (Czech Republic). Many wine-growing communities, such as Kleinhadersdorf and Poysdorf, are located along this present-day federal road 7, which produce a typically acidic wine due to the rather harsh climate. In some cases, this is also used as a synonym for such a wine, regardless of its origin. However, the term by no means means a priori "acid" and is not to be understood in a pejorative way. See a list of special wine designations under special wines.
Serious sources on the internet are rare - and Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one such source. When researching for my articles, I regularly consult the wein.plus encyclopaedia. There I get reliable and detailed information.Thomas Götz
