Austria - Chardonnay

Austria - Chardonnay

Austria: You're exploring Austrian wines - enjoy!
Chardonnay is an international grape variety that originated in eastern central France, a natural cross between Pinot and Gouais Blanc. It is an immensely versatile and phenomenally popular variety. And for me it shines brightest in our cool climate.

Austria has a winegrowing heritage stretching back over three millennia and produces some of the best wines in the world, of unparalleled quality, from grape varieties not grown elsewhere.

Today you finally find a couple Austrian wines in most shops, and in restaurants. A good start, but not enough, as Austria has so much more to offer!

We offer wines from all the regions and have picked from the best growers in each winegrowing regions. All of these - except Stift Klosterneuburg - are family run - And Stift Klosterneuburg is in a class of its own. All offer wines of individuality, character, and outstanding quality

We wouldn't be the champions of Austrian Wines in the UK if we didn't cover all of its diverse regions. They are all here from the white wines of Wachau, Kamptal, Kremstal, Wagram and Weinviertel, through the magic of Vienna and the Viennese hills in Carnuntum and Thermenregion, all the way to Burgenland and Styria in the south. Enjoy!

Chardonnay is an international grape variety that originated in eastern central France although there have been claims that it comes from Lebanon. These claims can be disproved since DNA testing has identified Chardonnay’s parents and neither have ever been cultivated in Lebanon.

Chardonnay is a natural cross between Pinot and Gouais Blanc. It is therefore, the sibling of Melon, Gamay Noir, Aligoté and many others. The three named are significant because Chardonnay has been known under variations of their names at times in the past. In Switzerland, Chardonnay has been crossed with Chasselas to produce Doral.
