Kaiserberg (reed Austria)

The vineyard is located in the community of Dürnstein in the Lower Austrian wine growing region Wachau. It is located between the municipalities of Dürnstein and Weißenkirchen between the vineyards Buschenberg and Liebenberg. According to an unverifiable legend, the name goes back to Emperor Charlemagne (742-814), who is said to have camped here with the Frankish army. Probably, however, a family name is the origin of this name.
