Famous vineyard (Lage) in the two municipalities of Baden and Bad Vöslau in the Lower Austrian wine-growing region Thermenregion. It was acquired by the Austrian winegrowing pioneer Robert Aldwin Schlumberger (1814-1879) in 1843. There he planted the French grape varieties Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot as well as Blauer Portugieser for the first time in Austria. From the latter he pressed his "Vöslauer white sparkling wine", which became famous worldwide and later became Austria's oldest protected wine brand as "Vöslauer Goldeck". In 1878 Schlumberger was awarded the title "Edler von Goldeck" for his services. Originally, the vineyard covered 120 hectares. In the 1930s, the vineyard was parcelled out and sold; today it is only ten hectares in size. The soil consists of calcareous gravel, on which the red wine varieties Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot are traditionally cultivated.

There is a vast number of sources on the web where one can acquire knowledge about wine. But none has the scope, timeliness and accuracy of the information in the encyclopaedia at wein.plus. I use it regularly and rely on it.
