Weinviertel red wines
The Weinviertel is not only Gruner Veltliner! More and more notable dry red wines are coming from the tranquil and cozy region with the picturesque "Kellergassen" north of Vienna. The best example: the Zweigelt Reserve 2011 by Winzer Georg Weinwurm , who was not only awarded a gold medal at the Mundus Vini 2014, but also won the title "Best Red Wine of Austria".
About 25% of the cultivation area of the wine district is planted with red wine, dominated by the Zweigelt and the Blue Portugieser.
