Grüner veltliner is Austria’s most widely planted white wine grape variety. Its name is often abbreviated to grüner, GV, or grü-ve. The grape can be made in a fresh and easy-drinking style, but the best examples are complex, powerful, and ageworthy. Wines made from grüner are especially food-friendly and are often good values on restaurant wine lists.
First selection by hand from all my Veltlinervineyards situated on the southern side of the
Danube, where the western Wachau Valley opens up to smooth hills and large terraces.
