The Carnuntum wine-growing region stretches from the eastern outskirts of Vienna to Bratislava and is known above all for Zweigelt. But Blaufränkisch is also becoming increasingly important there - especially for those winegrowers who cultivate it on the Spitzerberg.

This unspectacular gentle ridge near Prellenkirchen towers over the plain by about 150 metres. It is geologically related to the Leithaberg, i.e. a foothill of the Alps. This is where the slate soils on the higher parts come from. The dominant limestone deposits are surf reefs of the primeval sea. The approximately 80 hectares of vineyards are interspersed with hedges and green strips, where beneficial insects cavort, but also game, which waits for the ripe grapes.
