2 Wine-Centric Places to Visit in Austria

Austria has done a great job of protecting its wine industry and winemakers. There’s so many of them riddling the countryside and making superlative wines from red and white grapes. These dry and sweet wines have been sold by the winemakers for centuries, so believe us when we tell you they’ve perfected the art of winemaking.

You’re a wine lover too, are you not? Then it’s only logical you contact Roux Luxury Travels to get you to Austria. As a full-service travel agency in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, we can affirm Austria’s credibility as a haven for wine lovers and aficionados. Simply taking a trip to the 2 regions below should make your wine vacation as pleasant as you would want it to be.


· There Are Vineyards in Vienna

There are over 1,512 acres of potent vineyards in Vienna’s outer districts. You can access them via bus, metro or tram. These vineyards are great and easily Austria’s pride and joy. We say this because they are remnants of a tradition of winemaking that dates all the way back to the Middle Ages. Back then, they were often sold at wine taverns (heurigers).

Winemaking is now part and parcel of Austria’s culture and economy. So much so that there are strict measures taken to protect them against urban sprawl. All this is good news for you because it simply means you can go to the vineyards and treat yourself to wines like Pinot Noir, Pinot Blanc and Riesling, among others. But if you really want something special, try a glass of the Wiener Gemischter Satz; a wine that was even DAC-awarded!

· Wachau, Kremstal and Kamptal Offer You World-Class Whites

You might come across what seems like endless of people traveling along the Danube River as it snakes its way between the Baroque Abbey and the town of Krems; then through Wachau, a UNESCO world heritage site. Their destination is the historic vineyards growing along the river’s banks, and that’s where your destination should be too.

These vineyards dot every inch of the rocky hills and they produce some of the region’s most exceptional wines, despite the plots being fairly small and owned by families. This ownership has been passed down from one generation to another, so rest assured, the wines they produce for you will be the results of knowledge of wine-making that been perfected over the course of hundreds of years. Riesling and Grüner Veltliner are produced there too, and they are the favorite of many a wine lover. If you belong to this category, you need to visit thee regions before your vacation ends.
