Market town in the wine-growing region of Mittelburgenland (Austria) with the cadastral municipality of Haschendorf. The Celts and Romans already cultivated vines here. Neckenmarkt was in the immediate vicinity of the Roman road that connected the towns of Scarbantia (Ödenburg) and Carnuntum. From the 15th century onwards, the "long-distance wine trade" was practised and wine was often exported to Bohemia, Moravia and Silesia in exchange for goods in kind. In 1620, the farmers of Neckenmarkt supported Nikolaus Count Esterházy (1583-1645) in his fight against rebellious Hungarians and Bohemians, which is the origin of the custom of flag-waving, after which a branded wine is named. An entry in the "Inventarium Vinorum" of 1639 documents that eight and a half buckets (433 litres) of "Außpruch"(outbreak) were harvested in Neckenmarkt in 1637.
