Wine-growing municipality near Eisenstadt in the Burgenland wine-growing region of Leithaberg in Austria. Like the whole of Burgenland, it belonged to Hungary until 1920/21 (Hungarian name Zárány, Croatian name Cogrstof). Here, after the Second World War, grape seeds of the species Vitis vinifera were discovered in a Celtic burial mound from the Hallstatt period around 700 BC. At that time, the Celts practised viticulture in this area. This makes the village, along with the municipality of Stillfried in the Weinviertel, one of the oldest wine-growing communities in Central Europe. The ancient tradition of viticulture is also reflected in the municipal coat of arms with stylised grapes. There is a bilingual wine hiking trail (German and Croatian) along a length of 3.5 kilometres with 35 stops along the vineyards. These cover 16 hectares of vineyards at 182 to 279 metres above sea level on sandy clay soils with gravel and loess loam. The vineyards are Großgebirg, Kleingebirg, Klingenbach, Krcsi, Mitterried, Repistye, Satzen, Schmaläcker, Stari Hutweid, Veliki and Zsbornye. The red wine varieties Zweigelt, Blaufränkisch and St. Laurent are cultivated to 85%. Well-known wineries are Pretterebner Rolf and Schuster Rosi.
