It offers terroirs very much like the neighboring Wachau on its western end, and deeper soils on the other. Primary grape varieties are Grüner Veltliner and Riesling, both of which are well suited to conveying these specialized variations of soil to the taster.
The deeply carved Danube valley guarantees particularly good climatic conditions, and wine-culture has flourished in the area since even before the Benedictine monks started growing vines at the Stift Goettweig high above nearly one thousand years ago.
Some 5500 acres under vine spread themselves out on both sides of the Danube. There are more than a hundred individual wine estates, not to mention those many small growers with modest- to medium-sized holdings who deliver their wines to the co-op Winzer Krems.
