Thermenregion

Thermenregion

South of Vienna is the district known as Thermenregion which takes its name from ancient thermal baths (Baden is today still a spa town). The district is often compared with the Côte d'Or in France due to similar soil formation and climate.

Thermenregion is centred around the wine villages of Gumpoldskirchen, Traiskirchen, Sooß, Guntramsdorf, Tattendorf and Perchtoldsdorf. It was only created as a wine region in 1985 combining Gumpoldskirchen and Bad Vöslau.

A particularity of the region are the white wines from the indigenous Rotgipfler and Zierfandler, which give exotic wines with quince and orange aromas. Zierfandler is indeed an endangered species with just a few hundred hectares in the whole world, most of it here.

We are pleased to offer a selection of reds and these obscure but excellent whites from a handful of really good makers. Our first choice has to be Christian Fischer in Sooß is one of Austria's top red wine artists.

We occasionally offer other wines from the region, from Stift Klosterneuburg, Weingut Gebeshuber in Gumpoldskirchen, sweet wines from Harald Zierer and the Freigut at Thallern, which has been making wine since 1141.

Terroir
Thermenregion’s warm summers and dry autumns make it the mildest of the Niederosterreich regions. Easterly breezes from the warm Pannonian Plain that covers much of Hungary blow through the vineyards in the afternoon. This, coupled with relatively prolonged periods of sunshine, creates a climate that is well suited to later-ripening varieties. Soils range from sandy loam to more pebbly, stony types that hold warmth and provide good drainage.
