– this is a vague guess, based on the size of each plot –
Seefeld – sandy soil – Seefeld is situated in the west of Neusiedl am See, at the last bits of solid land before the marshes of the lake start. The whole plot is flat, dry and very windy. Since Seefeld is hot and straight in the haze of lake Neusiedl, the grapes grow very intense aromas.
GRÜNER VELTLINER (3 plots – planted 1978+1980+1990)+ SAUVIGNON BLANC (1 plot – planted 1997)+ WEISSBURGUNDER (3 plots – planted 1980+1995+2018)
