Riesling and Grüner Veltliner thrive in the favourable microclimate of the slopes above the Danube. The weathered tertiary sandstone soil makes the great varietal character of the wines possible.
The red wine village of Tattendorf lies 25 kilometres southeast of Vienna. Stift Klosterneuburg’s largest vineyard area is found here. This southern part of the Thermenregion is one of the greatest origins for Austrian red wines, in particular the abbey’s flagship variety St. Laurent. Grapes dependably achieve full physiological ripeness thanks to the warm and sunny Pannonian climate. The calcareous cambisol is enriched with abundant heat-absorbing alluvial gravel over mineral-rich subsoil.
Vineyard area: 55 hectares
Varieties: St. Laurent, Blaufränkisch, Zweigelt, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc und Pinot Noir.
Vienna is the only capital city in the world with its own viticulture. In individual sites with legendary reputations flourish Weißburgunder, Chardonnay, Gewürztraminer and Pinot Noir.
