A long-lasting tradition

The Neustifter Kirtag is based on a rite from the 18th century. The wine-growers went to the empress Maria Theresia to gift her a thanks-giving-crown and ask for a tax exemption due to a lack of profit. The empress left the crown to the wine growers and agreed to their propasal under the condition that the wine-growers host a wine gathering, the Neustifter Kirtag, annually.  Since then the Kirtag is hosted every year.
