Along the banks of the Danube River, Austria, lies the region of Niederösterreich, an area perfectly suited to producing Grüner Veltliner wines of the highest quality. Besas is a new project, formed in 2022, committed to producing wines of typicity, by way of precise and quality-focused winemaking, from sustainably farmed vineyards.  

The climate in the Traisental DAC (the Austrian version of AOC or DOC/G) is quite unique and there are several factors that make it perfect for the slow ripening of complex, aromatic grape varieties. Here, the cold air from the Pannonian Alps meets the warm air from the Danube Valley and the Adriatic Sea creating huge temperature swings from day to night in the ripening season, this helps the grapes stay on the vine for longer without losing acidity and developing strong, concentrated fruit aromas. 

Certified Organic and Vegan, Besas Grüner Veltliner is a cracking example of the grape variety, showcasing all of its Austrian power and freshness.
