GRAPE: 100 % Riesling Riesling, the “queen of white wine”, came from the river Rhine to Austria. It is the second most important variety in Austria and widely spread. The late ripening grapes are highly demanding and need best soils and attention in the vineyard. Young Riesling wines are fruity with a sense of peach and apricots. In our vineyard Riesling plays an important role since it is also used for sparkling wines.
