About this title:
Synopsis:
The recent dramatic rise in quality of Austria's wines has inspired Philipp Blom to fully revise and update his detailed exploration of this country's culture, history, wine laws, grapes, winemaking, and top producers into its second edition. The quality of Austrian wine has risen dramatically over the past twenty years, and especially in the last five as Gruner Veltliner has taken on the world's top Chardonnays in major blind tasting competitions. This completely revised and updated second edition explores the history of Austrian wine and provides in-depth reference to Austria's wine regions, including Burgenland, Wachau, Styria, Kremstal, and Kamptal. The leading estates and winemakers in each area are detailed, and the best wines of each are highlighted. The book also features twelve detailed maps of the wine-producing areas, and an explanation of grapes, winemaking techniques, and wine laws, as well as useful vintage information.
