Autumn and wine in Burgenland

Red vine leaf

Autumn in Burgenland

Experience Burgenland wine in the Autumn intensive. We like wine and wine regions. Petar grew up in a wine region. He knows that. But for me our stay at Lake Neusiedl is in Burgenland something special. We are here in autumn and the grape leaves are turning more and more color every day. The winemakers decorate their wineries autumnal.

Burgenland wine

This time we are lucky. The sun is shining from the sky. Temperatures during the day are around the 18 degrees. The wind blows through the reed grass by the lake. At night it is already cool, so that the leaves begin to color. Every day a little more. The color red can be seen more and more often on the mountain slopes in Burgenland. On our journey to Lake Neusiedl, we pass the Leitha Mountains. There, the vines miss the mountains a striped pattern. Three rows glow deep red, the three next to them are still green, and followed by a few that reflect the sunlight in yellow. It looks as though a painter painted the slopes of the Leitha Mountains in strips. It reminds me of Impressionist paintings.

Experience Burgenland wine on your autumn trip

It is a festival for all autumn lovers. The vines stand in rows and line the green spaces that separate the rows. They all seem to have one goal. The ridge of the low range of hills, from which there is a view over the landscapes of the Pannonian lowlands. Again and again we observe swarms of crows pouncing on the leftover grapes. These are left over from the harvest. Other vines are waiting to be harvested after the first frosts. The winemakers process these grapes into ice wine. Flocks of starlings gather in dark clouds. They fly in droves over the vineyards and invade there. It almost looks as if threatening clouds are forming. The swarms dive between the vines and then fly up again as a dark mass. It's a good thing that most of the vines have already been harvested. An impressive spectacle!
