Wagram

Wagram is a wine-growing region located in northeastern Austria on the banks of the Danube river and east from the famous regions of Wachau, Kamptal and Kremstal. The region was formerly known as Donauland and it is also home of the historic wine town Klosterneuburg. Wagram is known for the signature Grüner Veltliner grape as well as the local speciality the Roter Veltliner producing elegant and distinctive white wines, which are particularly age-worthy when yields are kept low. The region has a continental climate with warm breezes reaching from the warm Pannonian Plain, and to the east are tempered by cool Alpine influences from the north. The summers are hot and dry with big day and night temperature fluctuations helping to preserve the vital flavour profiles of the grapes. The dominant soil type is loess together with gravel and topsoil of sand and clay. The region is capable of producing wines with bright fruit, typical spiciness and unmistakably inviting texture. It is not only about the white wine there, but the red wines from Zweigelt and Pinot Noir also have exceptional quality as well as remarkable sweet wines. The region has the largest private wine estate Stift Klosterneuburg (Klosterneuburg Monastery) which is at the same time Federal College for Wine and Pomology - the first school of viticulture founded in 1860 in the world. The region offers great value and quality which needs to be popularised on an international level.
