Carnuntum

 

The winegrowing region Carnuntum, south of the Danube in Weinland Niederösterreich, extends east of Vienna toward the Slovak border. The small winegrowing region enjoys special status within Niederösterreich due to its arid conditions. Wine grapes are cultivated here on two hilly landscapes: the Arbesthaler Hillsides and the Hundsheimer Range. Rocky limestone & loess soils, together with the Pannonian microclimate of the Danube and the moderating climatic influence of Lake Neusiedl, provide ideal conditions for viticulture.

Carnuntum’s vineyards are not laid out on steep slopes or in dramatic terrain; they grow on soft arcs of hills formed by the primordial sea and the meandering Danube millions of years ago. Each one of these hillsides brings its own geologic history, exposure and flavour profile to the wine.
