Wachau Panorama

Outstanding results from Austrian publications

Under the close eye of our local wine critics: Falstaff, Vinaria and A la Carte are our country’s leading wine & lifestyle magazines and their praise for our wines is inspiring.

Austria has established itself in the hearts of international wine lovers and professionals as one of the world’s best white wine producing countries. And Domäne Wachau aspires to be one of the very best wineries in Austria. For this reason, we are particularly pleased over abundant praise under the close critical eye of Austria’s leading wine publications.

FALSTAFF: Our 2017 Riesling Federspiel Ried Steinriegl won this year’s Falstaff Federspiel Cup with 92 points. The annual Wineguide awarded 28 of our wines with 90 points or more.

Our two Kellerberg Smaragd (Grüner Veltliner and Riesling) wines and the 2017 Riesling Smaragd Ried Loibenberg took the highest score of five stars with the attribute “TOP” in the new guide. This puts us with the ten best wineries in Austria. Peter Schleimer, chief editor at Vinaria, also adored our oak-fermented 2017 Rosé 1805 Reserve (from the “Domäne Wachau Backstage”- series) describing it with these words: “Elegant-velvety fruit, creamy body, strawberry preserves, candied rose petals and rose jelly, coconut, depth and body, juiciness, woodruff, candied rhubarb and raspberry, lively acidity and complexity.”
