South of the Danube is a part of the Lower Austrian wine region Wagram. It is separated from the second part of Wagram north of the Danube. The part Klosterneuburg is separated from the area immediately north of the Austrian capital Vienna the name of the town. In addition to the vineyards of the municipality of Klosterneuburg, those of the municipality of Tulln are also included. Klosterneuburg is an ancient wine-growing area, because the Roman X. century A.D., which was settled in the 1st century A.D., was the most important period for the development of wine. Legion was already engaged in winegrowing at this time. The Augustinian canon monastery was founded by the Babenberg Margrave Leopold III the Saint (1073-1136), because according to legend, the veil of his wife Agnes, which had been blown away by the wind, was found here and the ruler kept his vow. Leopold is also the patron saint of Lower Austria.
In the past, you needed a wealth of encyclopaedias and specialist literature to keep up to date in your vinophile professional life. Today, Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one of my best helpers and can rightly be called the "bible of wine knowledge".Prof. Dr. Walter Kutscher
