Reed (location) in the municipality of Rohrendorf near Krems in the Lower Austrian wine growing region of Kremstal. It was already mentioned in a document in 1284. The name derives either from the colour of the soil or (as in the French Côte d'Or area) from the yellow autumn leaves. The south-facing vineyards have a slope gradient of up to 45%. The terraces are up to 700 metres long and mostly consist of four to eight rows of vines each. The soil consists of calcareous conglomerate weathered rock with a layer of loess. It is one of the largest continuous loess layers in Europe. The white wine varieties Grüner Veltliner, Riesling, Early red Veltliner and Chardonnay, as well as the red wine variety Blauburgunder(Pinot Noir). Shares in the vineyard are held by the Berger Erich, Bründlmayer Josef & Philipp, Buchegger Walter, Felsner Manfred, Moser Hermann, Moser Sepp, Thiery-Weber, Vorspannhof Mayr, Walzer Martin, Weingut Stadt Krems and Zöhrer Anton.
