The Viennese viticulture has a two and a half thousand-year history and is at least as old as the city itself, as this was still a small settlement. Already the Celts and before them the Illyrians had 500 BC. In this area, which they called "Vedunia", were already practicing viticulture before the Romans, which is the result of many finds such as wine barrels, pressing devices and prove grape seeds. Among other things, at the two vineyards Bisamberg and Nußberg where many vineyards are still created today. As Emperor Marcus Aurelius Probus (232-282) that of Emperor Domitian (51-96) adopted a ban, vines planting outside Italy, the legionaries in Vindobona began to grow wine and apply Roman methods. Today's big city with over 400 km² area is literally built on vineyards.
