Carnuntum is currently one of the most dynamic wine regions of Austria: the next generation takes over, many wineries went organic, it is the first region with red wine Erste Lage wines. So many reasons to explore the region – and to list its wines…

What is Carnuntum?
The winegrowing region in easternmost Austria has been the scene of brilliant development in recent years: from being an underdog to becoming one of the best red wine regions in Austria. In recent years, growers have invested a lot of work in the development of individual vineyards, especially accentuating the diversity of soils & microclimate; these efforts were crowned in 2018 with membership in the Österreichische Traditionsweingüter (ÖTW). And then in 2019, Carnuntum became a DAC region.

Why might this be interesting for you?
Despite numerous awards for their red & white wines, Carnuntum’s producers remain a real discovery, and most of the wines are still very reasonably priced.
