One of the eight specific wine-growing regions in the Austrian province or generic wine-growing region of Lower Austria. Viticulture was already practised here by the Celts before the birth of Christ. Grape seeds of the cultivated vine Vitis vinifera were found in the municipality of Stillfried, dating back to 900 BC. This makes it one of the oldest wine-growing communities in Central Europe, alongside Zagersdorf in Burgenland. The typical Weinviertel wine is named Brünnerstraßler after an old trade route from Vienna to Brno in the Czech Republic. The gently undulating region north of the Danube borders the Czech Republic in the north and stretches from the Manhartsberg in the west to the border with Slovakia in the east.
