Carnuntum wine region is located in the east of Austria, near the border with Slovakia. Ever since the days of the celts in the area people were engaged in wine-making, and it reached its peak under the rule of the Romans. Heavy soil, climate with hot summers and cold winters as well as the proximity of Lake Neusiedl and the Danube provide excellent conditions for growing grapes.
Carnuntum is famous for its red wine from Blauer Zweigelt, which local winemakers sell under regional brand - Rubin Carnuntum. Also popular is white wine from Grüner Veltliner under the brand Primus Carnuntum. Manufacturers are proud of the historical past of the region, so there is the ancient gates Haydentor on the labels, once part of the magnificent buildings of the 4th century, the rest of the relic of the Roman Empire in the archaeological park Carnuntum.
