Some people hold to the idea that only the white wines are any good in Austria.
If you haven't tried Austrian reds, you are missing out, big time! - and Zweigelt is a good place to start.
Zweigelt is the most planted red grape in Austria, the classic red for Austria. It makes very smooth, fruity, aromatic reds, often with a surprising touch of spice, but can be made to every style from light thirst quenchers to surprisingly big monsters.
Zweigelt is not only made into dry wine. It makes some wonderful strohwein and even Eiswein. As a result there is a growing amount in Canada where they make a superb icewine.
Our Zweigelts come from all over Austria to show a variety of styles and terroirs, but our reference is the fabulous Zweigelts made by Franz Netzl (and now daughter Christine) in Carnuntum. Other very popular Zweigelts would be the lovely smooth budget Altenriedererfrom Traisental and the Bisamberg by Rainer Christ in Vienna
