Neusiedl am See

The winegrowing community in the Austrian state Burgenland lies at 133 meters above sea level on the north shore of Lake Neusiedl between the foothills of the Leithagebirge and the Parndorfer Platte (Wagram). The Hungarian Queen Maria (1505-1558) granted the place (next to Jois and Rust ) the right to mark their wine barrels with the first letter "N" due to their excellent quality.
