Believe it or not, Carinthia is well known for its wine production and quality wines. It has been part of the region’s tradition since the middle ages, but became virtually non-existent soon after the first world war. The wine revolution started after 1972 and by the turn of the century Carinthia was already producing some excellent wines.
