Book “Wine in Austria: The History” EN

The long history of Austrian wine contains many facets: grape varieties, cultivation
and enology, viticulture through the ages, and the evolution of Austrian
winegrowing regions since the demarcation of the borders following the World
War I. What role is played by the trade and taxation of Austrian wine? What is
its ritualistic role in religion and traditional customs? This beautiful volume
represents the first in-depth, scholarly look at the historical and cultural
significance of wine, with its turbulent history, drinking culture, and depiction
in literature. In the process, problematic phases are brought to light as well,
such as the period from 1938 to 1945 and the wine scandal of 1985. Finally, the
book also documents the new role of Austrian wine in the global wine cosmos.
Along with a team of over forty authors, wine expert Willi Klinger and
historian Karl Vocelka reveal the intoxicating secrets of this unparalleled
cultural treasure.
