Well-known wine-growing community in the Lower Austrian wine-growing region Thermenregion
. Until 1985, it was an independent wine-growing area alongside Gumpoldskirchen
. It was not until 1772 that the production of red wine began. The first red grape variety was Blauer Portugieser
, which became known here under the synonym Vöslauer (also Badener). The Schlumberger
winery is located here, 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 approximately 300 hectares of vineyards in Bad Vöslau with mostly limestone-rich soil are planted with red grape varieties.
