Southeasternmost spur of the Manhartsberg near the municipality of Zöbing in the wine-growing region of Kamptal (Lower Austria). The elevation is only separated by the Grub vineyard and is in the vicinity of the famous Zöbing Heiligenstein. On the Gaisberg there is a south-southeast facing vineyard (Lage) of the same name. This consists largely of weathered rock with a brown earth layer. In the upper part there are terraces on predominantly mica-slate soils. In Austria this is often referred to as "Urgesteins-Boden". The lower, eastern area has a sandy loess layer and is partly at risk of frost and drought. The white wine varieties Grüner Veltliner, Riesling and Neuburger are cultivated on the Gaisberg.
For my many years of work as an editor with a wine and culinary focus, I always like to inform myself about special questions at Wine lexicon. Spontaneous reading and following links often leads to exciting discoveries in the wide world of wine.Dr. Christa Hanten
