This is the most commonly planted grape in Austria and can also be found in other parts of eastern Europe. It particularly enjoys climates and soils that are slightly damp.
Austria loves Grüner Veltliner and Grüner Veltliner loves Austria! It is the country’s most famous grape variety and this is as much about the growing conditions there than anything else. Needing damp conditions to thrive, it really is at home here, and it’s worth the trouble.
