Nov. 12 (Bloomberg) -- Austria’s wine-grape harvest will be below average because of adverse weather during the summer, the Austrian Wine Marketing Board said.

The harvest, equating to an estimated 2.25 million hectoliters (59.4 million gallons), will be about 7 percent below the five-year average, the Vienna-based board said in a statement today. Cold and wet conditions that followed a drought in June had a negative effect, particularly along the Danube River, it said.

Grape quality is “very satisfying,” according to the board. “I’m specifically looking forward to an outstanding year for sweet wines,” said Willi Klinger, head of the organization.
