Well-known city in the northeast of the Lower Austrian wine-growing region Weinviertel, only around 15 kilometers from the Czech border. The city lies on the southern slope of the Falkensteiner Hill country. It is located on the so-called "Brünner Straße", an old trade route from Wien to Brno. The designation is derived from this Brünnerstrassler for the typical acidic wine. Already mentioned in 1194 as "Poistorf", the documentary mention as a wine-growing community was first made in 1334. The city's coat of arms is on the plague column in the center. It shows two winegrowers carrying a huge bunch of grapes on a pole. Towards the end of the Thirty Years' War, in 1645 the Poysdorf residents were able to save the city from pillaging and arson by using 1,000 buckets of wine (56 liters each) and a feast. In the fall of 1814, Tsar Alexander I (1777-1825) traveled from Russia and King Friedrich-Wilhelm III. from Prussia (1770-1840) to the Vienna Congress and stopped in Poysdorf. The Resche Veltliner found the taste of the highest personalities and so it turned out that Poysdorfer wines were exported to Russia from this time.
