Traisental, named for the Traisen river that runs through its valley into the Danube, became in 1995 the most recently created growing district in Austria.

It claims pride of place as the region with the highest percentage of Grüner Veltliner planted.
Grapevines are typically planted on small terraces of earth that is commonly comprised of limestony or gravelly soils, depending on the individual village.

Although the days are long and warm, cool nighttime temperatures extend the growing season beyond what one would imagine.
This contributes to wines that not only offer plenty to chew upon, but also show excellent backbone and laudable finesse.

The town Traismauer offers ancient Roman architecture and excavations among its highlights, while Bronze-Age specimens provide evidence of nearly three millenia of wine-culture in the area.
