One of the six specific wine-growing regions in the Austrian province or generic wine-growing region of Burgenland. It was restructured in 2016 with some changes to the names and area boundaries. Apart from that, the name remained the same. Some areas of the Neusiedlersee wine-growing region were assigned to the Leithaberg wine-growing region (formerly Neusiedlersee-Hügelland). These were the municipalities of Jois and Winden, as well as some vineyards in the municipality of Neusiedl am See. The area is named after the 320 km² large and 36 kilometre long steppe lake. In the vernacular, it is usually referred to as Seewinkel because it nestles at an angle to the lake. It stretches from the north of the province along the northern and the entire eastern shore of the lake to the border with Hungary.
