One of the eight specific wine-growing areas in the Austrian province or generic wine-growing region of Lower Austria. From 1995 to 2007 it was called Donauland, but this confusing name never caught on because the Danube also flows through other wine-growing areas. The new name Wagram became valid from the 2007 vintage. The soil elevation north of the Danube that gives the area its name stretches from Feuersbrunn in the west to Heldenberg in the northeast.

Climate & Soils

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. The climate is different in the two sub-areas of Wagram and Klosterneuburg; see below.
