Grüner Veltliner (GREW-ner VELT-leaner) is a light bodied white wine that has a reputation of being a particularly food-friendly wine and is a popular offering on restaurant wine lists. It is the leading variety of Austria and with little exception, it is not grown in any other place. The vineyards go along the Danube river and are planted on the west of Vienna. There are two different styles: Classic and Reserve. Like Riesling, it’s never blended with other grapes and the winemaking almost never involves new oak. Today it can be considered among the top 25 grape varieties. The variety is a grandchild of Pinot Noir.
