Austria

Austrian wines don't have an enormous presence in the British wine market, partly because most of the production is geared at the top end of the price scale, but also because two of the varieties it goes big on, Riesling and Chardonnay, are among the most competitive in the market. However, Austria has one secret weapon up its sleeve: its native grape variety, Gruner Veltliner. It doesn't sound very sexy, but it does make some fantastic dry whites that can compete with some of the best that Burgundy has to offer, and at the same time offer something different. Again, they're not always particularly cheap, but they are worth having a look at if you spot one on a shelf near you.

In terms of red there is a small production, mainly of Pinot Noir and the snappily named Blaufrankisch, but little if any makes it far out of the country, and it is usually gobbled up by the Austrians themselves. Austria does, however, make some fabulous sweet wine, which, though expensive, is worth every penny, if you can manage to lay your hands on some and have deep enough pockets.

Major white grape varieties: Chardonnay, Riesling, Gruner Veltliner.

Major red grape varieties: Blaufrankisch, Pinot Noir.

Key areas to watch: Wachau, Burgenland,Styria (or Steiermark).

Names to look out for: Briindlmayer, Freie Weingartner Wachau, Franz Hirtzberger, Emmerich Knoll, Alois Kracher, FX Pichler, Willi Opitz.
