Neusiedlersee - Map with vineyards

Like everyone waters Lake Neusiedl has a positive regulating effect on viticulture. The climate is influenced by Pannonian and continental influences, the large Lake Neusiedl has a climate-regulating effect and acts as a heat store in autumn in connection with the sea fog that occurs. This also contributes to the formation of Botrytis (Noble rot) and thereby the production of very sweet Weep with those who have a very long tradition in this area. The growth cycle is longer than average with up to 250 days a year. As soil types loess, black earth, gravel and sand soils predominate.
