The vineyards of the Austrian province belong (along with Carinthia, Upper Austria, Tyrol and Vorarlberg) to the smallest wine-growing region Bergland Austria. This designation applies to Land wines, quality wines may be marketed under "Weinbaugebiet Salzburg". The first vines in modern times were planted in 2001 in Großgmain on the Untersberg, a massif in the Berchtesgaden Alps. The operation of a 7-hectare vineyard on the Untersberg of the Benedictine monastery of Michaelbeuern in the municipality of the same name has since been abandoned. At present, there is only a tiny vineyard on the Mönchsberg in the city of Salzburg with 100 m² (0.01 hectare). This yields 500 bottles of "Paris Lodron Zwinger" from the variety Frühroter Veltliner, which are sold for a charitable cause.
