Neusiedlersee DAC becomes the 8th DAC appellation in Austria

Neusiedlersee is the latest addition to the Austrian “appellations”, DAC. On March 28 the Austrian agriculture ministry approved the promotion of Neusiedlersee to DAC. The Neusiedlersee DAC can be used already from the 2011 vintage so we will soon see bottles appearing on the market. Interestingly, this will be a DAC that is focussed mainly on red wines made from the zweigelt grape variety. Neusiedlersee DAC covers 7649 hectares This makes for eight DACs in Austria. The other are:

  • Weinviertel
  • Mittelburgenland
  • Traisental
  • Kremstal
  • Kamptal
  • Leithaberg and
  • Eisenber
