60 Second Wine Vacation – Falkensteiner Balance Resort
Wine Channel TV in Austria with Jessica Altieri
Falkensteiner Balance Resort in Südburgenland, Austria
Join Jessica Altieri, CEO of Wine Channel TV, for a preview of the “Sip Some Austria” video series on Wine Channel TV. Wine Channel TV toured the Austrian countryside, taking viewers on a wine lifestyle tour to one of the world’s most unique wine regions uncovering countless blends and varietals that you need to try in 2016 and beyond.
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.
Wine Channel TV will be bringing you exclusive interviews with winemakers, tastemakers, and more to take you “inside” the Austrian wine scene. Austrian vineyards charm tourists with breathtaking vistas and quaint “Buschenschanks”—Austrian wine taverns. Jessica Altieri meets with winemakers along the UNESCO World Heritage landscape of the Wachau Valley, one of the most beautiful and breathtaking stretches of river valley in Europe, and ventures inside the city walls of Vienna’s palatial wonders for a vineyard located inside the infamous Schönbrunn Palace. In addition, viewers are taken along the charming Austria’s South Styrian Wine Road with exquisite wines, taverns with enchanting views, a wine hotel, home-cooked traditional Austrian dishes, natural spa resorts, and an astounding Market Hall (Genussregal) with over 1 million wine bottles to choose from—earning southern Styria the nickname, “Tuscany of Austria.” Bonus: Wine Channel TV host Jessica Altieri receives a private serenade from world-renowned tenor, Michael Schade inside Vienna’s 19th century Ferris Wheel.
