Wagram

 

The winegrowing region Wagram owes its name to a long hilly ridgeline lying north of the Danube, ranging some thirty kilometres from Tulln to the eastern border of the Kamptal. The vines are deeply rooted in historic soil: where waves of the primeval ocean once met the shore, loess deposits several metres in depth now shape the detailed landscape.

It is also the loess that gives Wagram’s wines their distinctive character: conspicuous minerality and assertive fruit, showing refined elegance and a subtly luxuriant texture. Here, predominantly south-facing slopes benefit from numerous hours of sunshine, followed by cool nights. The deep, loamy-sandy soil is ideal for the leading variety Grüner Veltliner, although the autochthonous Roter Veltliner also finds perfect conditions in Wagram. Among the red varieties, Pinot Noir shows enormous potential here.
