Woodland Lizard

Woodland Lizard

The "zootoca vivipara pannonica", or Pannonian woodland lizard is found above all in the Hansag nature reserve located to the south of Andau. Being a cold-blooded animal, its preferred habitat is the warm, stony soil of the vineyards of Andau, a preference it shares with our foremost grape, the Zweigelt.

We have chosen this genus of lizard to be our symbol of origin and of our nature-friendly cultivation of the vineyards. An ecologically-sound approach to vineyard work not only stimulates the growth of the vines, it preserves the habitat of numerous animals and microorganisms.
