This area is located on the other - western - side of the Neusiedler See lake, between the lakes of the plains and the Thermen-region. It is best known for its seductive sweet Austrian wines such as the famous Rüster Ausbruch.
The white Austrian wines are made from I Welsch Riesling, Weiss I Burgunder, Neuburger, Sauvignon, and Morillon (Chardonnay).
Excellent red Austrian wines are Neusiedler See-Hügelland made in the area around the picturesque village of Rust from Fränkisch, Zweigelt, and Cabernet Sauvignon. Most of the vineyards are sited on soils of clay, sand, chalk, and black loam.
