The origin of the winegrowers' association, founded in 1992, lay in regular meetings of ten winegrowers from the two Lower Austrian wine-growing regions Kamptal and Kremstal with an exchange of experience regarding sites and vineyards in connection with their soils, microclimate and grape varieties and their management. The 1992 statutes already defined the objective of establishing a vineyard site classification in the Danube region. The association was not understood as an elite, but as a community of values, in which the marketing of wines according to their origin has top priority.
Initially, these were sites from the four wine-growing regions Kamptal, Kremstal, Traisental and Wagram. In 2018, the two wine-growing regions Carnuntum and Vienna which increased the number of members to 62 wineries. With the addition of five more members, the number has grown to a total of 67 farms as of September 2020. Since June 2007 Michael Moosbrugger from Weingut Schloss Gobelsburg has been chairman of the association. His deputies are the winegrowers Philipp Grassl, Gerhard Lobner, Gerhard Markowitsch, Martin Nigl and Fritz Wieninger.
