Goldberg (Riede Austria)

Very frequent designation for vineyards (Lagen) in German-speaking countries. For the most part, it has nothing to do with the precious metal, but symbolically indicates the good quality of the wines grown there or high yields. In Austria there are at least nine with this name:

Deutschkreutz - Mittelburgenland (Burgenland)

The vineyard was already mentioned in documents in the 14th century. Like the Hochberg vineyard, it is part of the old "Biiri" vineyard. The west-facing vineyards with mostly lime-rich sand and clay soils are bordered to the north by the Gleißbach stream. Here, mainly red wine varieties such as Blaufränkisch and Cabernet Sauvignon are cultivated. The wineries Heinrich Johann, Igler Josef, K+K Kirnbauer, Pfneisl, Reumann Josef and Strehn Monika, for example, have shares in the vineyard.
