The idyllic Südburgenland is the most rustic wine landscape of the Burgenland, and extends from Rechnitz ,in the north, to Güssing, in the south. The northern area is dominated by primary rock soils, and to the south, moderately heavy loam soils – some of which have a high iron content - prevail. The entire vineyard area totals approximately 500 hectares.
Eisenberg, which has significant historical importance, and the Weinberg of Deutsch-Schützen together form the region´s wine-growing center. The classic red wines of the Südburgenland are vinified from the Blaufränkisch variety. And beginning with the 2009 vintage, they can be marketed under the designation Eisenberg dac (the 2008 vintage for Eisenberg dac Reserve). In addition to Südburgenland - Mapthe classic fruity varietal wines are the intense, minerally Reserve wines – which are amongst Austria´s great region-typical red wines.
Around Rechnitz in the north and Moschendorf to the south, particularly crisp and fruity Welschriesling and Weißburgunder wines are created. Also on the Csaterberg, near Kohfidisch, and along the Pinkataler wine road - from the Wintener Weinberg over the Kulmer and Gaaser Weinberg - very elegant white wines are pressed in beautiful, idyllic surroundings that feature many quaint cellars. The lovely landscape is ideal also for relaxing walks and bike tours.
In the southern-most area, around Heiligenbrunn and Moschendorf, is the Uhudler, a wine speciality vinified from direct-producer hybrids. This wine has many fans because of its wild strawberry aroma.
