One of the eight specific ones wine regions in the Austrian state or generic wine-growing region Lower Austria, From 1995 to 2007 it was said Danubia, but this name never really prevailed. The new name Wagram came into force in 2007. The eponymous soil survey north of the Danube extends from Feuersbrunn in the west to Heldenberg in the northeast. The name (Wachrain) is derived from "Wogenrain" or "Wogenrand", that was the former edge of the Danube in the Tullner Feld in the last ice age. There is a source horizon made of sea sand on a plinth of primitive rock, above which the loess towers up to twelve meters high. The yellow floor is high Water storage capacity and ensures complex wines.
Wagram consists of two areas separated by the Danube. To the north and along the river, the much larger area mentioned above extends between the wine-growing regions Kamptal in the west and Wien in the East. It also gave the wine region its name and covers around 2,100 hectares. Well-known winegrowing communities are Fels am Wagram (with the vineyards Fumberg, Hammergraben, Mitterweg, Schafberg, Weelfel, Wora); Grafenwörth (On the mountain, cellar wine garden, Nussberg and Rosenberg ); Großriedenthal (Alter Weingarten, Eisenhut and Goldberg ); Großweikersdorf and Kirchberg am Wagram (Hundsberg, Schlossberg and Steinberg).

When Donauland was renamed Wagram, it was given the status of Great location, The vineyards of the much smaller part cover around 350 hectares of vineyards.
