One of the five specific wine-growing regions in the Austrian province or generic wine-growing region of Burgenland. In 2016, a restructuring took place with partial changes in the designations and area boundaries. Apart from that, the name remained the same. Some areas of the Neusiedlersee winegrowing region were assigned to the Leithaberg winegrowing region (formerly Neusiedlersee-Hügelland). These were the municipalities of Jois and Winden, as well as some vineyards of the municipality of Neusiedl am See. The area is named after the steppe lake, which is 320 km² in size and 36 kilometres long. In the vernacular it is mostly called Seewinkel because it nestles at an angle to the lake. It stretches from the north of the province along the northern and along the entire eastern shore of the lake to the border with Hungary.
