One of the eight specific wine growing areas in the Austrian province or generic wine growing area of Lower Austria. In 1993, the districts Donauland (since 2008 Wagram) and Carnuntum, which until then had formed a common wine-growing region, were separated. Already the Celts and later the Romans cultivated wine here. In the middle of the first century the former Celtic kingdom Noricum became a Roman province.

The red grape variety(breeding number Klosterneuburg 181-2-71) is a new variety between St. Laurent x Blaufränkisch (which was confirmed by DNA analyses carried out in 1997). Synonyms are Blauer Zweigeltrebe, Blauer Zweigelt, Cvaigelt, Cveigelt, Klosterneuburg 71, Rotburger, Semenac Cerni 71, Zweigelt 71, Zweigeltrebe and Zwiegelt.

The red grape variety comes from France. The name is probably derived from the French word for blackbird (merle), because these birds like to eat the berries, which are very sweet when fully ripe. However, the name can also be an allusion to the black-blue colouring of the berries similar to that of the bird. There are more than 60 synonyms, which testify the worldwide distribution. The most important are Alicante Noir, Bigney, Black Alicante, Blue Merlot, Bordò, Crabutet, Crabutet Noir, Hebigney, Médoc Noir, Merlau, Merlot Black, Merlot Blue, Merlot Crni, Merlot Nero, Merlot Noir, Merlott, Merlou, Picard, Pikard, Plant Médoc,...
