The small valley named after the community of the same name is located west of Haugsdorf in the north of the wine-growing region Weinviertel in Lower Austria. There was probably already winegrowing here at the beginning of the first millennium. This is documented for the year 1140, when the Order of Knights of Malta was given plots of land with vines in "Mourberg". Today, the Castle Winery of the Order of the Knights of Malta is run on this historic site. The area is formed as an island, so to speak, on the south-eastern slopes of the Buchberg. It has a very special microclimate that is excellently suited to viticulture, with intensive sunlight that also favours red wine production.
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
