Kittenberg

Reed and cadastral commune of the same name in the commune of Heimschuh in the Austrian wine-growing region of Southern Styria. It was first mentioned in the 15th century in a deed of donation by the Archbishop of Salzburg. The name goes back to the word Kuhenberg. Cows used to be mills and millstones were mined at Kuhenberg; the quarry is still visible today. The south-southwest-facing vineyards with up to 60% slope inclination are located in the eastern Sausal Mountains and range between 360 and 485 metres above sea level. In the upper area there is slate and shell limestone weathering, in the lower area loamy soils. The slopes are protected from frost. The white wine varieties Sauvignon Blanc,Pinot Blanc and Welschriesling are mainly cultivated here. The Gross Alois, Potzinger Stefan, Schauer, Schneeberger Johann and Tement Manfred wineries, for example, have shares in the vineyard.
