There he planted for the first time in Austria, the French grape varieties Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot and Blauer Portugieser. From the latter, he pressed his world famous "Vöslauer white sparkling wine", which later became the oldest protected wine brand in Austria as "Vöslauer Goldeck". In 1878 Schlumberger received for his merits the title "Noble of Goldeck". Originally the vineyard covered 120 hectares. In the 1930s, the vineyard was parceled out and sold, today it is only ten acres in size.
