One of the eight specific wine growing areas in the Austrian province or generic wine growing area 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 onwards. The soil elevation north of the Danube that gives the name extends 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 sea sand, above which the loess towers up to twelve metres high. The yellow soil has a high water storage capacity and provides for multi-layered wines.
