Gols and the Region

The JURIS Winery is located in Gols on Lake Neusiedl in Burgenland. Burgenland, and especially this region around the lake, is the warmest part of Austria counting the most hours of sunshine annually. The large, shallow Lake Neusiedl is the dominating aspect of the region’s climate. More water evaporates from the lake yearly than it holds at any one time. The autumn climate is greatly influenced by warm thermals rising from the lake.

GOLS is situated on the northeast shore of the lake on the edge of the Parndorfer Plateau that reaches to the Seewinkel area around Illmitz to the south. The wine growing district of Gols can be divided into two defined areas:

  • Sloped vineyards on the Parndorfer Platte: south-facing locations of predominantly diluvial quartz and gravel with occasional patches of Pannonian clay.
  • Locations in the Seewinkel area:
    this part of the Pannonian steppe becomes more exposed towards Lake Neusiedl. Over the ages, sedimentation has created various soils including quartz and gravel.
