Frequent vineyard name (also Hochacker) in Austria. The name does not, as one might assume, indicate a higher location that stands out from the surroundings. Rather, it refers to farmland or vineyards with "high yields". In addition to the ones listed below, there is another vineyard of this name in Gols.

Horitschon - Central Burgenland

The vineyards cover about 100 hectares on mostly heavy loam and loess soils with some gravel and in the lower areas alluvial humus. The vine rows are mostly laid out in a north-south direction. Here, mainly the red wine varieties Blaufränkisch (80%), Zweigelt, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot are cultivated. Cabernet Sauvignon is cultivated in the small sub-vineyard "Hasler". Shares in the vineyard are held, for example, by the wineries Bauer-Pöltl, Gesellmann Albert, Iby Anton, Iby-Lehrner, Kerschbaum Maria, Kerschbaum Paul, Lehrner Paul, Moritz Alfred, vintners of the cooperative Vereinte Winzer Blaufränkischland and Weninger Franz.
