Stift Klosterneuberg is the largest privately owned winery in Austria, and is based in the Wagram region. Stift Klosterneuburg, has played a formative role in Austrian wine. With a modern management and a contemporary technological infrastructure, this example will be used as a role model for the future, along with the Bundeslehranstalt für Wein und Obstbau (Federal institute for viticulture and pomology), the world’s first viticultural and oenology school (founded in 1860), and today is a leading wine institution with internationally recognised standards for future winemaking generations. The wineries of Klosterneuburg cover a wide range of viticultural activities, from the small, family owned Heuriger to the large Sekt, or sparkling wine producers, all at the doorstep of Austria’s capital city Vienna.
