Picturesque countryside: Small terraced vineyards interchange with expansive plains where fruit and vegetables flourish. In between are villages, lookout towers and cultural treasures such as Herzogenburg Abbey. Bike paths wind their way through the region. Welcoming heurige wine taverns beckon you to stop and stay for a while.
Windfalls have no chance here!
The fruit is picked when fully ripe and freshly pressed immediately. It is then heated and bottled. The juices contain absolutely no artificial coloring or flavoring and no concentrates. There are currently six manufacturers producing 40 different kinds of juice. The range includes about 15 different varietal apple juices but juices are also pressed from apricots, pears and grapes along with a host of other fruits.
Tip for wine enthusiasts: unfermented bottled wines. Have you ever tasted a varietal Veltliner or Muskateller grape juice? A number of other multi-fruit juices such as apple-elderberry or currant-carrot are available as well. Nectars have become increasingly popular in recent times, too, especially apricot nectar. Initial attempts at pure vegetable juices have been promising.
