The Carnuntum wine-growing region lies to the east of Vienna and extends to the border with Slovakia. This small wine-growing region has only around 900 hectares of vineyards and belonged to the Wagram wine-growing region until the end of the 2000s. Due to the cool but unusually dry climate, very unique wines are produced here, which are among the top in Austria. Therefore, the region has rightly been given its own status.
The most important white grape varieties in the region are Pinot Blanc, Chardonnay and Grüner Veltliner.
Probably the best winery in the region is that of Gerhard Markowitsch, who is equally proficient in the disciplines of white and red wine and has been listed as a top company with 5/5 stars by the Falstaff magazine for years. p>
