Neusiedl on the lake

The wine-growing community in the Austrian province of Burgenland lies 133 metres above sea level on the northern shore of Lake Neusiedl between the foothills of the Leitha Mountains and the Parndorfer Platte (Wagram). The Hungarian Queen Maria (1505-1558) granted the village (along with Jois and Rust) the right to mark her wine barrels with the initial letter "N" due to the excellent quality. The vineyards of the municipality of Neusiedl am See used to all belong to the Neusiedlersee wine-growing region. In 2016, a restructuring took place in Burgenland, in which the former wine-growing area Neusiedlersee-Hügelland was abandoned and replaced (not congruently) by the DAC area Leithaberg. Some vineyards of the municipality of Neusiedl am See were assigned to this; these are Fügler, Kurze & Untere Neuberg, Landstraße Hutweide, Lange & Mittlere Sauerbrunn, Lange Neuberg, Lange Ohn, Marthaläcker, Marthalwald, Obere & Untere Blindberg, Obere & Untere Froschau, Obere Wiesen, Stümpfl, Übermassen, Untere & Obere Gern, Zuckermantel I & II and Zwergäcker. The rest of the vineyards of the municipality of Neusiedl am See belong to the DAC area Neusiedlersee.
