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.
