Vineyard

Weingut Josef Bauer - Weingarten

Loess soil in enormous layers of up to 15 m constitutes the basis for viticulture in the Wagram wine growing region. It is above all the Grüner Veltliner grape that shows optimum growth in this light soil with its capability to store water easily, resulting from a high lime content. The Riesling, on the contrary, prefers soils rich in minerals, e.g red tertiary gravel of the ancient Danube.

The existing microclimate is dominated by an interplay between cool air from the Manhartsberg hill and the hot air of the Pannonian climate, thus displaying the ideal combination for producing full and powerful wines, fruity and racy.

Climatically a region such as ours where precipitation is predominant, the work in the vineyards is orientated towards an optimum water management. Preferably soils without permanent green cover during the growing season, low vine-training systems and yield reduction mostly in extremely dry years are of considerable importance.
