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 country 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 vineyards cover seven hectares of vines on the Untersberg, on a vineyard belonging to the Benedictine Abbey of Michaelbeuern in the municipality of the same name, and on the Mönchsberg in the city of Salzburg. On the latter, the "Paris Lodron Zwinger" has been growing since 2008, a Frühroter Veltliner, which yields around 500 bottles from this vineyard.
