The Art of Winemaking at Its Best
At the heart of viticulture in Burgenland: world-class red wines. The wine regions in the north, around Lake Neusiedl, are famous for producing premium Zweigelt wines of outstanding quality.
The soils in Central Burgenland are thick with a high amount of clay. Ideal for growing Blaufränkisch (blue Frankish), a more challenging red variety. It’s the majorly grown grape here.
Furthermore, the wine regions in Burgenland also produce award-winning cuvees and excellent white wines. A speciality to be found only in Southern Burgenland: the Uhudler wine with its intense, fruity flavours.
Welcome to the “Land of Blaufränkisch”
The flagship grape variety on the 2,000 hectares of vineyards in Central Burgenland is Blaufränkisch. The designation “DAC” stands for wines of premium quality with distinctive notes that are characteristic of the terroir.
Four municipalities are the heart of the region: Deutschkreutz, Horitschon, Lutzmannsburg and Neckenmarkt.
Along the Eastern Shore of Lake Neusiedl
The wine region of Lake Neusiedl, on the eastern shore of the lake, extends from the hills and the town of Gols to the lowlands of Heideboden and the wetlands of Seewinkel. A range of different grape varieties grows on 6,000 hectares on the shores of Lake Neusiedl.
Founded in 2012, the new designation “Neusiedlersee DAC” highlights red wines of the Zweigelt variety that are fruity and well-balanced, reflecting the climate and soils of the region. Zweigelt and Welschriesling are the most important grape varieties in this wine region.
