The Neusiedlersee DAC area is located in the Pannonian climate zone. Typical for this climate are hot, dry summers and cold snowless winters, as well as moderate precipitation. An important factor for the microclimate is the Neusiedler See, the largest steppe lake of Central Europe.
In summer the big water surface heats up and delivers the stored warmth slowly to its surroundings. The slight cooling at night, supports the formation of the fruit and the production of the necessary acid which distinguishes the wines.
