The Danube wine region in Lower Austria has won an international award. An American wine magazine wrote an article about the ten best wine travel destinations. The Austrian wine region won second place.
It could even overtake renowned wine growing areas such as Italy, Portugal or South Africa.
The wine area Rioja in Spain came first in the ranking, North and South Forks of Long Island in New York third.
The “Wine Enthusiast Magazine” was founded in 1988 and is currently the biggest magazine (one edition is 100,000 copies) that is dedicated to the subject of wine and spirits.
The reward emphazises how attractive the Lower Austrian wine regions at the Danube really are, said Tourism State Secretary Petra Bohuslav (ÖVP).
