Burgenland

The province of Burgenland with the capital Eisenstadt is located in the very east of Austria. It borders Slovakia in the north, Hungary in the east, Slovenia in the south for a few kilometres and the two Austrian provinces of Lower Austria and Styria in the west. Wine-growing has been of great importance here for at least two and a half millennia, which is underlined by the regional variation of the historian Johannes Aventinus (1477-1534)'s saying "Extra Pannoniam non es vita; si est vita, non est ita" (You cannot live outside Pannonia; if you can live, you cannot live like here). The village of Zagersdorf is, along with Stillfried in the Weinviertel, one of the oldest winegrowing communities in Austria, because grape seeds of the cultivated grape Vitis vinifera were discovered in a Celtic burial mound from the Hallstatt period around 700 BC.
