Stefani wine

Name used in Austria to describe a wine whose grapes were harvested on 26 December (Saint Stephen's Day). This day is named after St. Stephen (1-36), who was the first of seven deacons of the early Christian community in Jerusalem and died a martyr. Naturally, this is mostly an ice wine or a Trockenbeerenauslese. In Austria, Stefaniwein or Stefanilese is an official wine law term. It may be used here if the date of harvest is noted on the label. Similar wines are Christwein, Dreikönigswein, Leopoldiwein, Martiniwein, Nikolowein and Weihnachtswein.
