Between the lake and mountains
Our wine making area in the hilly countryside around Lake Neusiedl is flanked to the south by Lake Neusiedl, providing warmth and moisture, and to the north by the Leitha range of mountains, which act as a weather divide.
Between Pannonian and continental
The Pannonian climate bestows the area with the highest amount of sunshine in Central Europe and the highest average temperature in Austria. The regional climate is not only determined by its east-facing position, but also by continental influences. This mixture has a very positive effect on winemaking. In the winter, it is cold and has little snow, in the summer hot and humid – and due to the blazing sun, the evaporation of Lake Neusiedl is extremely high. 2000 hours of sunshine, high humidity and an average of 500ml of rain per year provide climatically unique conditions for the production of premium wines.
