Situated to the south of the Thaya river, between the Manhartsberg mountain to the west and the Marchauen to the east, the Weinviertel extends southwards right to the gates of Vienna. The fertile region with its rolling hills is Central Europe’s oldest agricultural site, as witnessed by archaeological finds dating back some 7,000 years.

The entire region derives its name from viticulture: Weinviertel, the winedistrict. Warm loess soils and a Pannonian climate with mild winters give the Weinviertel wines their typical fruit, while the difference between daytime and night time temperatures intensifies the aroma of the region’swines.

The Grüner Veltliner with its Pfefferl, its “kick” of peppery spice, is the characteristic wine of the region. 8,000 hectares are planted with Grüner Veltliner here, the world’s greatest concentration of the varietal.
