Stillfried an der March in the wine-growing region of Weinviertel(Lower Austria) is one of the most important archaeological sites in Austria and, along with Zagersdorf in Burgenland, is considered the oldest wine-growing village in Central Europe. It was already inhabited by people 30,000 years ago. Stillfried was an important settlement and fortress on the Amber Road, the huge ramparts from the Bronze Age still testify to the former importance of the place. Some of the most important finds are on display in the Stillfried Museum. Among them is the so-called "Stillfried cup", which was found in the 19th century. The bronze cup was probably used as a ladle and drinking vessel in a wine set. Furthermore, there are grape seeds in the museum that could be clearly assigned to the cultivated vine Vitis vinifera and dated to the time around 900 BC. At that time, the Celts settled in this area.

The glossary is a monumental achievement and one of the most important contributions to wine knowledge. Of all the encyclopaedias I use on the subject of wine, it is by far the most important. That was the case ten years ago and it hasn't changed since.
