The wine-growing community in the Burgenland wine-growing region Mittelburgenland (Austria) is close to the lake Neusiedl and the Hungarian border. Winegrowing dates back to the Roman era around the turn of the age, excavations testify to an extensive Roman villa district. In 1245 the Hungarian king Béla IV (1235-1270) gave "Bujuslou" (today's Deutschkreutz) to two Hungarian nobles. The name "Kurustur" (Kreutz) first appeared in 1274. Under the name "Nemeth Kereztur" (Deutschkreutz), the settlement was first documented in 1619. The coat of arms of the community with a golden grape and leaf documents the attachment to winegrowing.
