The climate at Lake Neusiedl is optimal for the locally grown varieties. Also the National Park Lake Neusiedl contributes a lot to the world champion wines. The unspoiled nature, the long Pannonian sunny days and temperature storing pools guarantee top wines from Illmitz year after year.

Finely spiced with a light, fruity acidity - is how one could describe the Pinot Blanc and Riesling. The full-bodied red on the other hand convinces with opulent fruit, elegance and power. Zweigelt and Blaufränkisch (Gamay) are the preferred varieties here.
