One of the eight specific wine-growing regions in the Austrian province or generic wine-growing region of Lower Austria. From 1995 to 2007 it was called Donauland, but this name never really caught on. The new name Wagram became valid from the 2007 vintage. The eponymous elevation north of the Danube stretches from Feuersbrunn in the west to Heldenberg in the northeast. The name (Wachrain) is derived from "Wogenrain" or "Wogenrand", which was the former edge of the Danube in the Tullner Feld during the last Ice Age. On a base of primary rock lies a spring horizon of marine sand, above which loess piles up to twelve metres high. The yellow soil has a high water storage capacity and produces multi-layered wines.
