When you think of a typical Austrian wine, the first few things that come to mind are likely to be the gauche, slightly austere wines of the old Burgenland region. However, it is viticultural practices such as biodynamic farming and the use of organically grown grapes that make Austrian wine the world’s most unique. The Loess Grüner Veltliner is one of several unusual wines that come from the Wachau region, the most famous of which is the Grüner Veltliner.
It’s time for another (wine) review! This time: Domane Wachau Loess Grüner Veltliner 1L 2017.View

Small vineyards along the Danube riverbed and valley floor are the source of Loess Gruner Veltliner 1L.
