The vineyards of the Austrian province of Tyrol belong (along with Carinthia, Upper Austria, Salzburg and Vorarlberg) to the smallest wine growing region in the Bergland region of Austria. This designation applies to regional wines, quality wines may be marketed under "Weinbaugebiet Tirol". A vineyard near Zirl in the Inn valley was named in the 14th century, at that time there were also more vineyards. Two dozen winegrowers cultivate five hectares of vineyards in the Gurgltal near Imst (Arnold Happacher), as well as in the communities of Haiming (Peter Zoller), Silz Thaur and the mentioned Zirl. Mainly the varieties Müller-Thurgau, Blauburgunder(Pinot Noir), Zweigelt, Weißburgunder(Pinot Blanc) and Chardonnay are cultivated. See also under Austria.
