Description to Traisental DAC
One of the eight specific wine-growing areas in the Austrian province or generic wine-growing region of Lower Austria. Incidentally, it is the only wine-growing region in the Mostviertel. It lies to the west of Wien, borders the Danube to the north and is bordered to the south by the Lower Austrian capital St. Pölten. The current extent was created in 1995 by separating it from the wine-growing region of Donauland (now Wagram). The name was given by the Traisen River, which flows through it from Herzogenburg in the south to Traismauer in the north and then flows into the Danube at Krems. The Traisen valley is an ancient wine-growing region. A grape seed find from the Bronze Age 2,000 B. C. and a Celtic bronze bucket from 450 B.C. with drinking scenes at a festival identify it as one of the oldest wine-growing areas in Austria. The town of Traismauer was an old Roman town; the Limes, the wall against the Germanic tribes invading from the north, ran through here. According to 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 gravelly-loamy layers. The climate and weather are subject to Pannonian and continental influences, the Danube has a thermoregulating effect. The largest wine-growing community is Traismauer with about 200 hectares of vineyards. In Inzersdorf, some monasteries such as Passau and Salzburg already owned vineyards around the year 1000. Other municipalities are Ambach, Angern, Atzenbrugg, Getzersdorf, Herzogenburg, Inzersdorf, Nasenberg, Nussdorf, Oberndorf, Oberwölbling, Reichersdorf, Sitzenberg-Reidling, Statzendorf, Waldlesberg and Würmla. The best-known vineyards are Engelreich, Gießgraben, Grillenbühel, Hausberg (first mentioned in 950), Händlgraben, Pletzengraben, Rafasetzen, Wöbling and Zwirch.
