The winery in the town of Klosterneuburg is one of the oldest and most traditional wineries in Austria. In 2014, renowned wineries from all over the world were invited to a gala wine tasting to celebrate the 900th anniversary. These included wineries from Germany(Schloss Johannisberg), Switzerland, Italy(Donnafugata), France, Portugal(Fonseca), Spain(Marqués de Riscal) and Oregon(HillCrest Winery). The foundation of the abbey Klosterneuburg goes back to the Babenberg Margrave Leopold III (1073-1136), who moved his residence to Klosterneuburg in 1113 and founded the abbey in 1114. In 1133, the ruler called the Augustinian canons to Klosterneuburg, who then developed the monastery into a centre for religion, science, culture and viticulture over the centuries. Wine was exported to many countries in the Middle Ages and was famous far and wide, and the monastery was given the name "Zum rinnenden Zapfen" ("To the running cone").

Serious sources on the internet are rare - and Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one such source. When researching for my articles, I regularly consult the wein.plus encyclopaedia. There I get reliable and detailed information.
