Riede (site) in the municipality of Gols in the Burgenland wine-growing region of Neusiedlersee (Austria). The name comes from the right to clear part of the municipal forest around Gols and use it for agriculture. This was a "gift" and the tearing down of the trees the "Riss". The two terms then dialectically merged to form "Gabarinza". The vineyard is a south-western slope rising relatively steeply in two waves (Langer and Kurzer Gabarinza) towards the Parndorfer Platte. It is an old terrace of the Urdonau. The soils consist of magnesian sandy loam with topsoil darkened by humus. The parent material consists of approx. 600,000-year-old Danube gravels, whose reddish-brown colouring is the result of the weathering of iron oxides. The vineyard covers 23 hectares of vineyards, where the red wine varieties Zweigelt, Blaufränkisch, Merlot, St. Laur ent, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon, 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, Beck Judith, Gsellmann Andreas, Heinrich Gernot, Nittnaus Gebrüder and Wendelin Paul.
In the past, you needed a wealth of encyclopaedias and specialist literature to keep up to date in your vinophile professional life. Today, Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one of my best helpers and can rightly be called the "bible of wine knowledge".Prof. Dr. Walter Kutscher
