Conditions for producing great wines in CARNUNTUM are perfect.
The qualities of this southern climatic island in the heart of Central Europe were appreciated already by the Romans. Today the soil produces both excellent white wines, such as Sauvignon Blanc, and reds of international class and a unique terroir. For instance, Pinot Noir, which matures ideally in the Pannonian climate.

The major grape for us, however, has always been the domestic Zweigelt grape. Whether as a pure varietal, or spiced up with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot or Shiraz– this grape is a lead actor with strong character parts.
