With a Pannonian climate marked by cold winters, hot summers and warm temperatures in autumn, the Burgenland area, where lake Neusiedl with its surrounding hills is situated, provides Austria’s highest average temperatures. The lake’s micro-climate adds a mild touch and some welcome humidity during the
summer, a combination which guarantees ideal wine-growing conditions. Winemakers for five generations now, the Prielers are situated in Schützen, close to the Lake Neusiedl National Park. Their terroir covers 20 hectares of the high hill of the ‘Schützner Stein’, west of the lake, situated in the Leithaberg area.
