Description to Traisental DAC
One of the eight specific wine growing areas in the Austrian province or generic wine growing area of Lower Austria. It is, by the way, the only wine-growing area in the Mostviertel. It lies to the west of ViennaIt borders the Danube in the north and the capital of Lower Austria, St. Pölten, in the south. The current extent was created in 1995 by separating it from the Donauland wine-growing region (today Wagram). The name was given by the river Traisen, which flows through it from Herzogenburg in the south to Traismauer in the north and then flows into the Danube near Krems. The Traisen valley is an ancient wine-growing region. A grape seed find from the Bronze Age 2,000 BC and a Celtic bronze bucket from 450 BC with drinking scenes at a festival prove it to be one of the oldest wine-growing regions in Austria. The town of Traismauer was an old Roman town, this is where the Limes, the rampart against the Germanic tribes pressing in from the north, ran. According to a legend, the Nibelungs were served wine in Traismauer on their way to King Etzel. In 1673, at a wine tasting, Inzersdorf wines were rated higher than those from the Wachau.
The predominant soil type consists of dry, sandy and gravely-loamy layers. The climate or weather is subject to Pannonian and continental influence, the Danube has a heat-regulating effect. The largest wine-growing community is Traismauer with about 200 hectares of vineyards. In Inzersdorf some monasteries like Passau and Salzburg already owned vineyards around the year 1000. Other communities are Ambach, Angern, Atzenbrugg, Getzersdorf, Herzogenburg, Inzersdorf, Nasenberg, Nussdorf, Oberndorf, Oberwölbling, Reichersdorf, Sitzenberg-Reidling, Statzendorf, Waldlesberg and Würmla. The most famous vineyards are Engelreich, Gießgraben, Grillenbühel, Hausberg (first mentioned in 950), Händlgraben, Pletzengraben, Rafasetzen, Wöbling and Zwirch.
