Jessica Altieri, Wine and Water Sommelier, meets with Günther Zimmel of Falkensteiner Balance Resort in Südburgenland, Austria. The Falkensteiner Balance Resort Stegersbach is located in the heart of the Burgenland spa region and borders the Styrian thermal spa country. This part of Austria is renowned for its vineyards and fruit orchards. The numerous vineyards and brandy distilleries testify to the long-established art of wine and brandy production of the area.

The Falkensteiner Balance Resort wows with inspiring architecture, an atmosphere of tranquility and relaxation, and is heralded as “one of the best spas in Austria,” with a perfect balance of lifestyle and wellness. The resort consists of 111 spacious rooms, 17 family apartments, and 13 designer suites surrounded by breathtaking gardens. Enjoy holistic acquapura, a “metabolic balance program,” yoga, meditation, Nordic walking, or golf. The resort’s vinotheque takes advantage of the southern Burgenland region’s infamous red wines with a strong character.

The vinotheque is home to the famous “uhudler”—a unique Austrian wine, originating in this Südburgenland region with a rosé color and intense flavor notes of strawberries and black currants. It can also be produced as a white wine. Beyond “uhudler,” the vinotheque offers the opportunity to sample many of the fine Austrian wines from the region. Enjoy an excursion with the resort to the South Styrian Wine Road, comparable to Italy’s Tuscany. The South Styrian Wine Road charms with exquisite wines, taverns with enchanting views, fine dining and rustic hiking trails.
