The Wines of Austria
Stephen Brook’s The Wines of Austria introduces Austrian terroir and grape varieties and the rules and regulations that govern the production of Austrian wine before supplying a comprehensive guide to the 12 wine regions. A final chapter assesses vintages, with a star rating for each, and a separate rating for Niederoesterreich whites, Burgenland reds, and sweet wines. The most recent ten vintages are considered in detail.

Wein | Wine: Genesis
WINE GENESIS takes up where the wine book VINARIA left off. VINARIA has long been out of print and for this reason significant parts of the original book have been reproduced.
In this book, wine lovers will discover fresh features, like the descriptions of the work in the vineyard and the complete process of winemaking from month to month as the year unfolds. And one of its most important features is the "ampelography" - the study of grape varieties.
Willi Klinger, Managing Director of the Austrian Wine Marketing Board: "No one has ever produced such a fine photographic record of the genesis of wine from the vine to the glass as the Austrian Peter Oberleithner... Nor has the work of the grower ever been so completely and accurately observed as in this book."
