In 1999 the Austrian wine regulation was amended to create a new wine-growing region called Weinland Austria, the advantage of this new appellation is that wines from Niedersterreich and Burgenland, a vast wine growing area, can be used for the production of Landwein or Vin de Pays.
Evolci Blaufrnkisch comes from the Burgenland region. The Burgenland region is located in the eastern side of the country by the Hungarian boarder and it is he oldest vine growing region in Austria.
Burgenland covers 13 840 hectares of vineyards. The region is famous for producing some of the richest and best red wines in Austria, especially made from Blaufrnkisch and St Laurent, red varietals strive in Burgenland due to the hot, Continental Pannonian climate. Some of the finest sweet wines from Austria are also produced in Burgenland.

Evolúció comes from the Tokaj region in Hungary. Tokaj is synonym of dessert wines and takes its name from the town of Tokaj-Hegyalja in the northern part of the country.
Evolúció is made from the white Furmint grape. The name Furmint is taken from the word 'Froment', for the wheat gold color of the wine it produces. It is widely believed that the grape originates from Hungary; however it seems most likely that it was brought in the area in the 13th century. In recent years, DNA profiling conducted at the University of Zagreb has shown that Furmint could have a parent-offspring relationship with the modest Gouais Blanc grape, which similar research elsewhere has shown to be a parent of numerous other varieties, including Chardonnay. Furmint has also been confirmed to be the same grape as the Croatian white variety Moslavac.
Furmint is mostly grown in the Tokaj region where it is used to produce dry wines as well as the famous sweet Tokaj wines. To make Aszú Furmint is blended with Hárslevelü and Muscat Lunel. It is also grown, to a much lesser extent, in the region of Somló, in the Great Central Plains of Hungary. Furmint is found in other countries such as Slovakia where it takes a similar role as in Tokaj, in Austria, where it is known as Mosler, in Slovenia, Croatia, Romania and the former republics of the Soviet Union.
Furmint is an early budding late ripening grape and particularly prone to botrytis. Its naturally high acidity level adds to its aging potential. Furmint can be produced in a variety of styles ranging from bone dry to extremely sweet wines.
