Leopoldi wine

Name in common use in Austria (also Leopoldilese) for a wine harvested on "Leopolditag" (15 November). According to wine law, this wine may also be officially called Leopoldilese if the label contains information about the date of harvest. Naturally, this is mostly a Beerenauslese or Trockenbeerenauslese. The custom goes back to the Babenberg Margrave Leopold III the Saint (1073-1136), the patron saint of Austria, as well as the three federal states of Lower Austria, Upper Austria and Vienna. The day is celebrated with numerous events and old customs, for example the Leopoldi wine tasting with tasting of the young barrel wines or the barrel slide. Similar wines are Christmas wine, Epiphany wine, Martini wine, Nikolov wine, Stefani wine and Christmas wine. See also under special wines.
