Riede or site (also Achspoint) in the municipality of Spitz a. d. Donau at the western end of the Lower Austrian wine-growing region of Wachau. The name was originally "Abtspoint" and refers to the former ownership. The first documented mention is in 1243 as "Akspevnt". The vineyard extends over the foot of the slope and the flat area between the Singerriedel and Pluris vineyards as well as the slope area of the Rote Tor. The southwest to south-facing, partly terraced vineyards at an altitude of 211 to 289 metres above sea level have a slope gradient of up to 50% and cover nine hectares. In the upper area, weathered soils prevail, in the plain brown earth and loamy sandy soils. More than 90% of the land is cultivated here Grüner Veltliner. Domäne Wachau, Gritsch Mauritiushof, Hirtzberger Franz, Lagler Karl have shares in the vineyard.
