Documentary on the holiday

Burgenland is known far beyond the borders of Austria and Europe for the extraordinary variety and outstanding quality of its wines. The palette ranges from multi-layered white wines to fruity rosé and long-lasting red wines to the best sweet wines in the world. Where the grapes for these wines grow and how the Pannonian climate, the geological peculiarities and the commitment of the Burgenland winegrowers affect them is the subject of a TV documentary from the ORF Landesstudio Burgenland. On this wine tour through Burgenland, Nicole Aigner and cameraman Michael Ritter show the best vineyards in different seasons and also from a bird's eye view. The foray leads from the Seewinkel to the Leithagebirge and the Ruster Hügelland, the youngest DAC region Rosalia and the Mittelburgenland to the idyllic and rustic wine-growing areas in the Südburgenland, to the Csaterberg and Eisenberg. Where wine grows, a special breed of people is also at home. In the middle of the vineyards, well-known winegrowers talk about their life with nature and their passion for wine.
