At one time, Vienna’s showcase single-vineyard – Nussberg – was called the “wine mountain“. The southerly exposed, sloping hill and the calcareous soils offer perfect conditions for growing Riesling, Gemischter Satz and Burgundy grapes.
The varietal diversity goes back to the tradition of the Heurigen and takes its root in the large geological differences encountered on Nussberg. The lime content varies between 25% and 65% and combines with loam, clay and sand.

Shells, once washed ashore from the sea, help the wines from Nussberg develop a multi-faceted minerality.
The influences of the Vienna Woods and the Danube River ensure a perfect microclimate with cooling effects to preserve the vital fruit aromas and flavors. Nussberg without doubt is counted among Austria’s top sites.
