The interplay of climate and soil in the Danube region forms the basis for the character of our wines. Remnants of the Pannonian continental climate bring hot, dry days to the area. Cool air currents from the higher-lying Waldviertel mix and "spice" the up to 38°C hot air. The soils are just as unique and ideal for winegrowing: on the one hand, you will find Gföhler gneiss here, the primary rock, with brown soil layered on top. Sometimes there is also a layer of lime in between. On the other hand, there is loess, airborne dust from the Ice Age, which has compacted into fertile soil. And finally the clay and gravel soils.

mountain vineyards up to 380 m above sea level, windy and with extreme temperatures. Apart from the loess layers, which become thicker towards the south-east, and the local marble lenses, predominantly lime-free rock brown soils form here over siliceous crystalline rocks such as paragneiss, mica slate and amphibolite, which vary in narrow spaces.
