Description to Liechtenstein

The small principality with the capital Vaduz covers 160.5 km² and lies between Switzerland and Austria. Viticulture has been practised there for 2,000 years, the first vines were brought to the country by the Romans. Around 1600, the climate deterioration known as the Little Ice Age led to severe losses. At that time, many vineyards were converted into orchards. At that time, mainly Weißer Elbling and, from the middle of the 17th century, Pinot Noir were cultivated.

The vineyards cover around 25 hectares in the municipalities of Balzers, Eschen, Gamprin-Bendern, Schaan, Schellenberg, Triesen and Vaduz on the southern slopes of the Rhine Valley. The main grape varieties grown are Chardonnay, Pinot Noir. Müller-Thurgau and Ruländer (Pinot Gris) are cultivated. Specialities include Beerliwein (Pinot Noir) and Kretzer (a sweet expression of Pinot Noir). Well-known wineries are Castellum, Hoop, Hofkellerei Stiftung Fürst Liechtenstein and Harry Zech.
