Kellerberg, cellar buildings with several storeys

In many Austrian wine-growing regions, the traditional wine cellars are situated outside of the town centres. These villages without chimneys can be several storeys high, and are described in Austria as the Kellerberg, or cellar hill. They are made up of a press house, the so-called "Kellerhals" and the underground tunnels, that are often an interlinked labyrinth of passageways.
