Vines that produce velvety, creamy, well-rounded wines thrive in the clay-like loess terroir of Wagram, which streches along both banks of the Danube downstream of Krems. Connoisseurs often compare the region and its wines to Burgundy.

The soil of Wagram is characterized by marine deposits leftover from a prehistoric sea which covered the region at the time, before turning into what is now known as the original form of the Danube river.

The soft loess clay acts as a natural reservoir, so that the Wagram vineyards don’t even need to be watered at the height of summer.
