Austria and Wine
The history of Austrian winemaking dates back probably to 700 B.C. to the old Celts times. The real foundation of wine culture in Austria, however, was put by the Romans, at the beginning of A.D.
Austria has four main wine regions: Niederösterreich, Burgenland, Steierland (Styria) and Wien (Vienna). These wine-growing regions are divided into several wine areas, and one of these areas, belonging to the region Niederosterreich, is the area Weinviertel.
