SCHAFBÜHL – CLAY SOIL
Schafbühl is in the northeast of Neusiedl am See. This site is a southwest sloping hill, rolling softly from the Wagram-plateau in the north towards the lake in the south. The soil is mostly CLAY, deriving from the alluvial soil of the Wagram plateau mixed with limestone from the Leithaberg. This site grows very intense grapes.
