Lake Neusiedl

One of the five specific wine regions in the Austrian state or generic wine-growing region Burgenland, In 2016, a restructuring took place, with some changes in terms and territorial boundaries. The name remained the same, but there were changes in the borders. Some areas of the Weinbaugebietes Neusiedlersee were the Weinbaugebiet Leithaberg (formerly Neusiedlersee-Hügelland). These were the churches Jois and winds, as well as some vineyards of the municipality Neusiedl on the lake, The area is named after the 320 km² and 36 km long steppe lake. In the vernacular, it is usually referred to as "Seewinkel", because it conforms angularly to the lake. From the north of the state, it extends to the north and along the entire eastern lakefront to the border Hungary,

Neusiedlersee - map with vineyards

Like everyone else waters The Lake Neusiedl exerts a positive regulating effect on viticulture. The climate is characterized by Pannonian and continental influences, the large Lake Neusiedl has a climate-regulating effect and acts in autumn in conjunction with the occurring mist as a heat storage. This also contributes to the formation of Botrytis (Noble rot) and thereby the production of very sweet Crying, which has a very long tradition in this area. The growth cycle is above average for up to 250 days a year. When soil types dominate loess, black earth, gravel and sand soils.
