The most peppery white wine in Austria is grown in the Weinviertel region and, typically for the land north east of Vienna, is made from Grüner Veltliner grapes. It makes both wine professionals and connoisseurs eager to spice up their lives.

Easily recognised by its light green gold colour and spicy but fruity flavour: Weinviertel DAC is a white wine which tastes of the endless rolling hills of the Weinviertel region, of sunshine and the flinty earth on which the vines flourish. DAC stands for controlled designation of origin and is a guarantee that Weinviertel DAC wine has passed several tests to maintain its high level of quality. Grüner Veltliner with its Pfefferl, or peppery kick can be bought in wine shops, but also directly from around six hundred vineyards along the 400 km long Wine Road and of course in the many “villages without chimneys” as the rows of wine taverns and cellars are known.
