Gaisberg

Southeasternmost foothills of the Manhartsberg near the community of Zöbing in the Kamptal (Lower Austria) wine growing region. The elevation lies, separated only by the Grub reed, in the vicinity of the famous Zöbing Heiligenstein. On the Gaisberg there is a south-southeast facing vineyard of the same name (Lage). It consists mainly 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 "primary rock soil". The lower, eastern part has a sandy loess layer and is partly prone to frost and drought. On the Gaisberg, the white wine varieties Grüner Veltliner, Riesling, and Neuburger are cultivated.

The Allram, Arndorfer, Dolle Peter, Eichinger Birgit, Hiedler Ludwig, Hirsch Johannes, Laurenz V. and others have shares in the Gaisberg. Schloss Gobelsburg, Schreibeis, Topf Johann, Weixelbaum Heinz and Zottlöderer. In the lower part of the Gaisberg there is the reed Ofenberg, which is characterized by a loess-covered soil and its microclimate. This is virtually predestined for the Grüner Veltliner. Worth seeing is a cellar lane here with many very old cellar vaults, some of which are now only used as show objects.
