Schüttenberg

A vineyard or site in the municipality of Göttlesbrunn and the cadastral municipality of Arbesthal in the Carnuntum wine-growing region of Lower Austria. The name comes from the word Schotter (gravel), which was "poured on" by the Danube over the course of time. At 278 metres, the Schüttenberg is the highest elevation in the Arbesthal hill country. The south-facing vineyards are bordered by a forest in the west. In addition to gravel, the soils also consist of a considerable amount of clay, as well as a limestone layer in the west.

Riede Schüttenberg in Göttlesbrunn (Carnuntum)

The vineyard is particularly suitable for red wine varieties such as Merlot, St. Laurent and Zweigelt, and in the west for white wine varieties such as Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Grüner Veltliner. A special feature is the largest Central European colony of the colourful bird species "bee-eater" (Merops apiaster), which has developed here in recent decades. The wineries Grassl Philipp, Markowitsch Gerhard, Markowitsch Lukas, Netzl Franz, Oppelmayer, Pimpel and Taferner Franz, for example, have shares in the vineyard.
