BisambergHill north of the Danube river in the Wien (Vienna) region of AustriaIt is separated by the Danube river from the Nussberg

Fritz Wieninger of Weingut Wieninger says ‘the soils of the Bisamberg comprise light sandy loess. This soil is highly water permeable and the sub-soil is extremely calcareous, over solid limestone, and are particularly chalky. The clay content is distinctly lower in Bisamberg than Nussberg, and Bisamberg gets more wind compared to Nussberg.’
