Rubin Carnuntum vineyards

Carnuntum is also the name of the wine-growing area situated east of Vienna, between the River Danube and the lake Neusiedlersee. It is one of the smallest wine-growing areas in Austria, but extremely dynamic.
Here the group of wine-growers known as “Rubin Carnuntum” are active. Once an insider’s tip, wines from Carnuntum are today a “must” on every sophisticated wine list! Thanks to ideal climate and soil conditions, red wines in particular from Carnuntum are now successfully established.  

Relax at the end of the day with wine tasting or a visit to a wine tavern in the region.
