One of the eight specific wine growing areas in the Austrian province or generic wine growing area of Lower Austria. The Celts were already cultivating wine here before the birth of Christ. In the municipality of Stillfried, grape seeds of the cultivated grape Vitis vinifera were found, which were dated to 900 BC. This makes it one of the oldest winegrowing communities in Central Europe, alongside Zagersdorf in Burgenland. After an old trade route from Wien to the Czech city of Brno, the typical Weinviertler wine is named Brünnerstrasser. The gently hilly area north of the Danube borders on the Czech Republic in the north and stretches from the Manhartsberg in the west to the border of Slovakia in the east.
