The best wines of the year

As every year, the best wines are crowned in Austria. The SALON is considered the national championship of domestic wine. Its judgement enjoys the highest trust among merchants, consumers and vintners. For more than three decades, the 270 best wines have been tasted and determined in a multi-stage process at the event.

Initially, several thousand wines are submitted through country awards (countries award prizes to the best wines from 7,000 establishments). The best of these then enter the so-called blind tasting. An additional 60 wines are nominated by the wine magazines. Quality sparkling wines can be submitted directly by producers for the final tasting. Thus, 500 wines enter the blind tasting, of which the best 270 are awarded prizes at the end. From classically fruity to full-bodied to noble sweet wines and sparkling wines, Austria's entire wine diversity can be found.

This year, the winning wines were presented at the event in mid-August in Vienna's Palais Coburg, at a press conference with a tasting of the winners. All wines were subjected to the judgement of a jury of experts. The members of the jury must have passed the official taster examination or be able to provide evidence of similar training. Wine consultants are also part of the tasting jury. In advance, there is also a separate tasting training for preparation.

The final results are wines and sparkling wines in 19 categories, whose high quality puts them at the top of the Austrian wine industry. In addition, a winner is crowned in each of 17 categories.

A few statistics

The origins of the 270 wines are distributed as follows: 137 wines from Lower Austria, 77 from Burgenland, 37 from Styria, 13 from Vienna and 6 from the Bergland. Some wines come from organically certified farms, as well as from farms with the "Sustainable Austria" label. Around a third of the wines were thus produced in a particularly environmentally conscious way.

The standard work for top wines, the Fallstaff Weinguide Austria 2021/2022, has also reissued its recommendation of the current top wines from all over Austria. 3,600 wines were professionally tasted and evaluated for this. Some wines are already available from 20€. Some can only be bought from 100€.

Premium living in unique real estate in Austria

A stressful day comes to its end. One appointment followed the next. You took important decisions; satisfied business partners and customers.

Now, finally, it’s time to come home. This is your moment – only yours. You navigate ... the car to your personal parking space, take the elevator from the garage directly to your apartment. As you open the door, you - once again - become aware of the difference between daily routine and quality of life. Some call it a luxury apartment. For you it is the best way to come home.

You open a window and enjoy the panoramic view of the surrounding nature. Or are you overlooking the moonlit roofs of Vienna from your penthouse? Enjoying the sight of your garden, your personal place of peace and freedom? Savouring the clear view of the stars from the roof terrace of your apartment? It is your decision alone.

The events of the day fall off of you. Barefoot you walk across the noble parquet floor, your fingers gently stroking the custom-made designer furniture. Delicate materials, worked with great skill and love. Quality of life – that is the combination of high standard and comfort. Pleased you drop unto the king-sized couch in the living room. Now that you have left the workday behind you, it is time for the infinite pleasures of life ….

Modern luxury residence or premium revitalised villa from the turn of the century: If you want to buy or rent exclusive real estate or property in Vienna or another state in Austria – this is the right site for you.
