Gruener Veltiner is indigenous to Austria, though it is now being grown throughout the world including New Zealand and Oregon.

Gruener Veltliner is extremely susceptible to its terroir taking on the soil and climate characteristics of each region dramatically.

  • Hiller Simone I Gruner Veltiner 2017

    Snoothrank:

    Something of a strange wine. Lovely, fruity nose. On the tip of the tongue peach, apricot, green apple, which I get, a lot, in Gruners. Also, however, some spritziness. Under the rear palate I get minerality, and, on the finish, I get woodiness. Not a horrible wine, but it is weird, Read More

    Wine review by raindance


  • Austria is becoming well-known for Grüner Veltliner. This crisp white not only tastes good - the grape variety is on the label which makes life far easier as we wander down the wine aisle. That we can pronounce ‘Grü-ner Velt-liner’ also helps the Austrian cause!At a recent corporate event I included Loimer’s Grüner Veltliner 2016 to show the pot... Read More

  • Diwald Grossriedenthaler Loss Zweigelt Wagram 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Dark purple color with tart burnt aromas of spice and mixed berry, cranberry and fresh violet flowers. Zesty and bold with high acidity on the palate, a bit of medicine, concentrated cherry and cranberry fruit with a tingling, herbal finish. Read More

    Snoothrank:

    Medium light mineral notes of crisp lemon zest and wet slate. More minerality and sharp acidity on the palate, refreshing and quite tart with grapefruit and lemon notes and a finish smoldering with the aftershock of acidity. Read More

  • They are now producing wonderful ones in the Finger Lakes region of upstate NY! Particularly the Dr. Konstantin Frank winery. I did a blind tasting of Gruners from Austria vs. the Finger Lakes ones, and the 2009 Dr. Frank was guessed to be from Austria by the wine savvy attendees!
