Wagram

Lower Austria

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 wine growing area. The soil - a loess outwash on the shores of the primeval sea, forms a unique landscape - is rich in fossils and minerals. It has been proven to give 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 texture. 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. Special quality ice wines in particular are pressed in the Wagram. The increase in quality in recent years has lifted the Wagram from the status of a hidden spot. Places such as Feuersbrunn, Fels, Kirchberg and Großriedenthal have long since established themselves as reference points for dedicated wineries. The Klosterneuburg region covers a broad spectrum of viticultural activities: it is home to tranquil 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 centre for young Austrian winemakers.
