This region extends from east of Vienna to the border with Slovakia and includes the rolling hills south of the Danube, notably the Leithagebirge. Warming influences from the east and from the nearby Neusiedlersee provide sufficient warmth to ripen red grapes fully and local varieties are sometimes blended with Cabernet and Merlot. Gerhard Markowitsch stands out in Carnuntum.
