Burgberg (Riede Austria)

Name for the Spitzer Hausberg, around which the Lower Austrian municipality of Spitz a. d. Donau in the Wachau region was formed. The vineyard of the same name is located on the back side of the mountain, facing away from the Danube. The front side, visible from afar, is known as Subriede Tausendeimerberg. The northwest-facing, partly steeply terraced vineyards of the Burgberg vineyard have slopes of up to 65%. They lie between 218 and 286 metres above sea level and cover 23 hectares of vineyards. The two sides of the mountain are very different in terms of soil type. The heavy soil of the Burgberg consists of calcareous sandy-marly layers. Here, mainly Grüner Veltliner is cultivated. The Gebetsberger, Hofstätter, Lagler Karl and Nothnagl wineries, for example, have shares in the vineyard.
