Maria Theresa

On the occasion of the birth of the Habsburg ruler Maria Theresa (1717-1780), a wine from Langenlois was served, which was very popular at the court of her father Charles VI (1685-1740) at that time. The Habsburgs had large estates in all the important wine-growing communities of what was then western Hungary (today's Burgenland) and Lower Austria and had viticulture and cellar management carried out according to the latest findings. Wines from Donnerskirchen, Großhöflein, Gumpoldskirchen, Jois, Neusiedl am See, Purbach, Rust and St. Georgen were mostly delivered to the Vienna Hofkeller. She promoted viticulture in Austria and Hungary through many decrees and laws and frequently visited her estates.
