In 1999, the Austrian wine regulation was amended to create a new wine-growing region called “Weinland Austria." The advantage of this new appellation is that wines from Niederösterreich and Burgenland, a vast wine growing area, can be used for the production of Landwein or Vin de Pays.
Evolúció Blaufränkisch comes from the Burgenland region. The Burgenland region is located in the eastern side of the country by the Hungarian boarder and it is the oldest vine growing region in Austria. Burgenland covers 13,840 hectares of vineyards. The region is famous for producing some of the richest and best red wines in Austria, especially made from Blaufränkisch and St Laurent, both red varietals that thrive in Burgenland due to the hot, continental Pannonian climate. Some of the finest sweet wines from Austria are also produced in Burgenland.
