Burgenland Wine

Burgenland is a major wine-producing region located in Austria’s southeast. It is Austria’s warmest region, guaranteeing ideal ripeness year after year. When Austria was a part of the Austro-Hugarian Empire, it was known primarily for its Ausbruch-style dessert wines, which are still made there. The influence of a large, shallow lake called Neusiedlersee creates an ideal environment for botrytis, encouraging the production of these dessert wines.

Today, Burgenland is best-known as Austria’s preeminent producer of quality dry red wines. The local red wines are produced mostly from Blaufrankisch, St-Laurent, and Zweigelt, though international varieties also make an appearance.

Burgenland’s subregions are Mittelburgenland, which produces mostly reds from Blaufrankisch and Zweigelt; Neusiedlersee, which is known for botrytized dessert wines; Neusiedlersee-Hugelland, the home of Ausbruch wines; and Sudburgenland, another region that produces mostly red wines.

  • Austria Sektkellerei Szigeti Pinot Noir Brut NV


    I believe each wine should be judged on its own merits and not in competition with others. In that regard, this wine is simply fabulous. For $4.99 you can't beat this with a stick. Not too sweet, not too dry, not too bubbly. At $4.99 it's cheaper than not drinking. Drank a bottle with some stir fry and the pairing was delightful. I'd keep a bott... Read More
