Wine region of the month: Traisental
Traisental is the most recent addition to the viticultural map of Austria, and with a mere 790 hectares is amongst the smallest wine-growing regions. Big however, are the wines, particularly Grüner Veltliner. The quaint wine villages still contain the long-established tradition of Buschenschanken wine taverns, and the larger towns, such as Traismauer and Herzogenburg offer a fine glimpse into the region’s history. The Traisental DAC designation was introduced from the 2006 vintage, and is applicable for fruity and spicy Grüner Veltliners and impressive Rieslings with mineral characters.
