Walter Glatzer farms 54 hectares of vineyards in the ancient Austrian region of Carnuntum, the largest border community of the Roman Empire. Celtics, Romans, and much later, monastic settlements have tended vines here for over 2000 years. Carnuntum has a unique combination of exposition, soil and microclimate, providing perfect conditions for viticulture. Vines benefit from the contrast between the warm Pannonian plane to the northeast, the cooling currents off the Danube, and wind protection from the Maria Ellend forest, to the north. This climate provides wide diurnal temperature variations, preserving acidity in the grapes, thereby giving the wines a freshness and brightness making them a pleasure to drink.

There are gently rolling hills of stony, dense loam and gravel soils, here, which are perfect for red grape varieties. The sands of the alluvial plane stretching to the Danube river are ideal soils for Grüner Veltliner and other white varieties. Red wines play a leading role here especially those made from Zweigelt and Blaufrankisch grapes.
