Upper Austria

The vineyards of the Austrian province belong (along with Carinthia, Salzburg, Tyrol and Vorarlberg) to the smallest wine-growing region, Bergland. This designation applies to Land wines; the quality wines may be marketed under "Weinbaugebiet Oberösterreich". Upper Austria is best known for its cider, also known as "Landessäure". Viticulture has been a tradition here since the Celts and Romans. From the 14th to the 16th century there was a heyday. Climatic changes associated with the Little Ice Age caused a decline and therefore a boom in the production of beer, which is still true in this province today.

As honorary chairman of the Domäne Wachau, it is the easiest and quickest way for me to access the wein.plus encyclopaedia when I have questions. The certainty of receiving well-founded and up-to-date information here makes it an indispensable guide.
