What it is
Probably Austria's most significant white wine is Grüner Veltliner, a wine that grows in many Austrian wine regions and is a go-to choice in restaurants. Mostly known to be dry, peppery and high in acidity, there are also the highly ripe “Prädikat” variations.
Grüner Veltliner in its many regional varieties is a versatile companion to fine cuisine.
