Altenberg (Riede Österreich)

Popular name for vineyards or sites in Austria; there are at least five with this name. There are also other spellings such as Altbergen or Altberg.

Gols - Lake Neusiedl (Burgenland)

The vineyard has a 600-year history and emerged from the historic Gols vineyard. It is a south-western slope on the edge of the Parndorfer Platte and covers a total of 52 hectares of vineyards. Due to its size, the soil conditions are therefore quite varied. On the crest of the slope the soil consists of loess with gravel and crushed stone directly in contact, on the middle slope of loess with sandy, clayey subsoil and pure loess at the foot. The subsoil is characterised by a high lime content. Above all, the red wine varieties Zweigelt, Blaufränkisch, St. Laurent and Merlot, as well as the white wine varieties Chardonnay and Pinot Blanc are cultivated. Shares in the vineyard are held, for example, by the wineries Achs Paul, Achs Werner, Beck Erwin, Beck Judith, Bernthaler + Bernthaler, Bruckner Helmut, Gsellmann Andreas, Gsellmann Siegfried, Lehner Erwin, Leitner Gernot, Nittnaus Anita & Hans, Pittnauer Gerhard, Preisinger Hel mut, Renner Helmuth, Rommer Michael, Schmelzer Horst and Georg and Wendelin Andreas.

Serious sources on the internet are rare - and Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one such source. When researching for my articles, I regularly consult the wein.plus encyclopaedia. There I get reliable and detailed information.
