Austria is a small wine country with 4 wine growing regions and 16 wine growing areas. Austrian wine is associated with classical music. Its elegance brings to mind the finesse of the Lipizzaner stallions. Indeed, Austrian wine actually has been a part of this land's culture for thousands of years and is much more than an accompaniment to the music of Mozart, Schubert and Strauss.

<img align="center" src=http://www.vinarium.at/pics/austria.gif width=390 height=404 border=0></p>Yet, Austrian wine is not only for formal events and stylish places. Any time is the right time to raise a glass of crisp Grüner Veltliner, Welschriesling or a smooth, velvety red. How about a noble, sweet Trockenbeerenauslese for those moments when you are sitting alone in quiet reflection?

Austrian wine is a wine for all seasons. Such as when, after a rainy afternoon in the province of Styria, the sun breaks through and shines on the hills, trees and vines, all glistening with raindrops. Or when you are sitting outside on a bright summer day with the steep vineyards of the Wachau region behind you, the gently flowing Danube river in front of you, and a delicious "Sülzerl" - jellied pork in aspic - is on your plate. Then it's the perfect time for a Riesling "Federspiel", a not-too-light yet not-tooheavy, animated wine.
