Gösing am Wagram nestles at the crossways of two climatic zones. The pannonian climate from the southeast is responsible for sufficient ripeness; the continental climate from the north provides the necessary cool temperatures and freshness for our piquant wines with matured acidity.
Our vineyards(Vineyard map)
Annaguld // Loess with a higher content of red clay and intense lime activity, therefore, a more compact and rather heavy soil, planted with Chardonnay and Pinot Blanc. South-west facing, same elevation as Wilbling vineyard (appr. 330m), ideal for wines of the Pinot family.
Essenthal // Deep loess with a dark humus layer of about 50 cm, planted with Grüner Veltliner, the oldest vines at the moment. Thus already smaller, loose-berried grapes with a richer aroma potential and lower susceptibility to botrytis; south-east position, 280m altitude which is slightly lower, yields Veltliner wines with a lot of substance and crispness.
Fumberg // Deep yellow loess, terraces sloping down from about 300 m to Gmirk Vineyard on appr. 250 m; planted mainly with Zweigelt, Grüner Veltliner and marginally Cabernet Sauvignon; south-facing direction, optimal solar radiation and best micro-climatic conditions, ideal prerequisites for full-bodied wines.
Gmirk // Deep loess again with a thin humus layer, altitude about 250m, lowest in the winery, planted with Riesling, Chardonnay, Grüner Veltliner, Gelber Muskateller, Zweigelt and some Syrah. Southern exposure, early ripening, well-structured wines with clear fruit and noticeable influences of terroir.
Wilbling // Very pale-yellow loess, planted with Grüner Veltliner, south-east facing, highest elevation vineyard on appr. 350 m, biggest plot, therefore, offers the chance for experiments, wines are especially fruit-dominated.
Welfel // Loess in the middle and lower parts, with a higher content of clay and blue loam in the upper steps, terraced vineyard, orienting from south towards west; sloping down from about 300 to 250 m like the neighbouring Fumberg vineyard to the west; Planted with Grüner Veltliner, similar conditions as in Fumberg vineyard.
