Definition:Regional single vineyard site classification

The Austrian Association of Traditional Vintners (Österreichischen Traditionsweingüter) announced the classification of their single vineyard sites in 2010. The classic single vineyards (klassifizierte Lagen) and the top single vineyards (Erste Lagen) were defined. The symbol of these wines is visible on the wine label as a name and image brand, and association members within the valley of the Danube are entitled to use it (Kamptal, Kremstal, Traisental and Wagram).
