The Hundertpfunder site is a small vineyard in the larger site Hochbaumgarten. The name, which has been used for 300 years, probably refers to a historical area measure. The altitude is 130 to 155 metres above sea level, the average incline is 8 percent. The vineyard is divided into three parts, the upper and lower parts are very flat. The middle part is very steep and delivers the best qualities. Only from this part the Hundertpfunder is produced.
The orientation is east/northeast. This means that the first rays of sunlight reach the grapes in the early morning hours and are intensified by the light reflection of Lake Neusiedlersee. The old saying from Rust applies here that the best vineyards are those whose vines have a clear view of the lake. In the afternoon, the sunshine becomes much less intense. This means that the sensitive Pinot Noir vines are better protected from excessive heat.
The soil consists of brown earth on a layer of slate and gneiss. Individual limestone veins run through the site. The soil is therefore very heterogeneous from almost lime-free to highly calcareous. The different compositions lead to a higher complexity of aromas in the grapes.
