Well-known wine-growing community in the Lower Austrian wine-growing region Thermenregion
. Until 1985 it was an independent wine-growing region next to Gumpoldskirchen
. Only in 1772 the production of red wine was started. The first red grape variety was Blauer Portugieser
, which became known here under the synonym Vöslauer (also Badener). Here is the winery of the Schlumberger
family with the famous and historically significant Goldeck
vineyard. This company is the birthplace of the first Austrian sparkling wine in 1850, white pressed from Blauer Portugieser. The winegrowing pioneer planted the first Austrian vineyards with Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Today 75% of the 300 hectares of vineyards in Bad Vöslau are planted with red grape varieties.
