The deep loess soils on the Wagram are up to 100,000 years old. Apart from the incredible height of up to 20 meters, they originate from the last ice age, which shaped the Wagram significantly. The striking Wagram ridge was created by blowing fine sand as the primeval sea became visibly smaller. If you look closely, you can still discover small shells and shellfish today.
On the way to us you drive past the so-called "Nine Mauna", a spectacular loess formation. This special loess profile is comparable to a history book, from which one can read the origin of our powerful terraces through the most diverse layers of earth and stone.
