Wine-growing municipality in the Eisenberg wine-growing region of Burgenland (Austria). The large municipality of Deutsch-Schützen-Eisenberg comprises the cadastral municipalities of Deutsch-Schützen, Edlitz in Burgenland, Eisenberg an der Pinka, Höll and Sankt Kathrein in Burgenland In 1221 Deutsch-Schützen was mentioned under the name "Perwolff", after which a brand wine from the village (Weingut Krutzler) was also named. The vineyards cover about 100 hectares on the Deutsch-Schützener Berg, the Radlingberg and on the southern slopes of the 415 m high Eisenberg. The latter is dominated by slate rock mixed with sand with a high iron content, which gives the red wines strong mineral tones and a strong colour. Well-known vineyards are Bründlgfangen, Fasching, Ratschen and Weinberg. Two thirds of the red wine varieties cultivated are Blaufränkisch, Zweigelt, Blauburger and Cabernet Sauvignon. The most common white wine varieties are Grüner Veltliner, Welschriesling and Weißburgunder (Pinot Blanc). Well-known producers in the municipality are Kopfensteiner, Körper Erich, Krutzler Reinhold, Schützenhof, Unger Gerald, Wachter-Wiesler, Wallner Gerhard and Weber Alfred.
The glossary is a monumental achievement and one of the most important contributions to wine knowledge. Of all the encyclopaedias I use on the subject of wine, it is by far the most important. That was the case ten years ago and it hasn't changed since.Andreas Essl
