Wine region Wagram

Wagram, the official name of this wine-growing region since 2007, refers to a mighty terrace that stretches along the left bank of the Danube downstream from Krems for 30 kilometers. About 2450 hectares of vineyards are located in this part. The remaining vineyard area can be found in the large Klosterneuburg site south of the Danube. The Wagram itself, in its geological and climatic uniformity, can be described as an ideal typical wine-growing area. The soil – a loess outwash on the shores of the primeval sea, forming a unique landscape – is rich in fossils and minerals. It demonstrably gives the wines their own unique characteristics.

The influence of the Pannonian climate with very warm sunny days interacts with the cool nights. The combination results in wines of accentuated fruitiness, elegance and melting. This “terroir” is expressed to perfection above all in the main variety of the area, the Grüner Veltliner. The autochthonous Red Veltliner also thrives excellently under these conditions. Full-bodied red wines – mainly from Blauem Zweigelt and Blauburgunder – can be found in the leading wineries, as well as sweet wines. Ice wines in particular are pressed on the Wagram in special quality. The increase in quality in recent years has relieved the Wagram of its status as an insider tip. Places such as Feuersbrunn, Fels, Kirchberg or Großriedenthal have long since established themselves as addresses of committed wineries. The Klosterneuburg region covers a broad spectrum of viticultural activities: it is home to tranquil wine taverns as well as extremely traditional wineries of impressive size, sparkling wine cellars and an institution of special value: the Höhere Bundeslehranstalt für Wein- und Obstbau, the world’s first viticultural school and today a renowned training center for young Austrian winemakers.
