Traisental white wines
The Traisental is a small wine-growing region (770 ha) in Lower Austria with the typical grape varieties of the region, above all the Grüner Veltliner, which covers 65% of the vineyards. The name comes from the river Traisen, which flows westwards from Krems to the Danube. As the only wine-growing region in Austria, the Traisental has grown in surface over the last few years, a sign for the hidden potential of the region.
Since 2006 there is the Traisental DAC for wines from Grüner Veltliner and Riesling. Since it is drier in the Traisental than in neighboring cultivation areas, Botrytis is hardly found here, which makes the wines still very clear and fresh, even at high rpieness.
