This master's thesis deals with the impact which viticulture and the vegetation planted in the tractor lanes had on the quality of white wine in the year 2010. To achieve this end, three differing versions of soil cultivation in two different sites in Weiden am See in Burgenland were contrasted with each other. In both sites, the existing vegetation within the lanes was documented. The evaluation of this documentation made it clear that in both sites only a few species of the vegetation mixture originally sown into the lanes had been able to grow, however, several additional species had sprouted. In a further step, diggings of soil profiles were performed in order to determine the distinguishing features of the sites tested. Furthermore, soil density and soil moisture were recorded. The readings corroborated the existence of a certain degree of differences between the various versions of soil cultivation and also the fact that soil compressions could be found mainly in the soil beneath the tractor lanes. From samples of the soil profile diggings, the size of the grains was determined with the help of a sieve analysis. The evaluation of these analyses showed that the soil at the site ‘Alte Rain had an average percentage of silt and clay of more than 60%, whereas the site ‘Neuberg altogether exhibited a high percentage of sand and grit. In the course of this work further key soil characteristics were determined, such as the percentage of humus and carbonate, the pH factor and the amount of plant-disposable nitrogen. The results indicated that the soil in both sites contained a moderate degree of humus. The vineyard ‘Alte Rain can be characterised as moderately chalky with an average potential pH factor of 7.9, whereas the vineyard ‘Neuberg is not chalky at all and has an average potential pH factor of 6.1. In order to assess the impact on the quality of the wine, analyses of fruit wine and wine were taken and an undercover winetasting was done. The analyses of fruit wine and wine showed a distinction between the various versions of soil cultivation. The winetasting, however, due to deficiencies in the wine, did not yield any conclusive results with regards to soil cultivation.
