Danube Land

Former wine-growing region in Austria, renamed Wagram at the beginning of 2008, which underwent some changes in the 15 years of its existence. In 1993 the Donauland-Carnuntum wine region was separated and both parts became independent. Then in 1995 the district Traisental was separated from the wine region Donauland and became a separate wine region as well. The Danube Land wine-growing region, which was reduced as a result, consisted of the separate sub-regions Wagram (about 2,400 hectares, north of the Danube) and Klosterneuburg (about 350 hectares, south of the Danube). However, the name Donauland never really caught on. More and more winegrowers profiled themselves under the term Wagram, the name Donauland became an almost superfluous appendage. After long discussions it was therefore decided in mid-2007 to change the name to Wagram. For Klosterneuburg a large site within the Wagram wine-growing region has now been created. The new name became valid from the 2007 vintage.
