Käferberg (Riede Austria)

A vineyard or site in the municipality of Langenlois in the Lower Austrian wine-growing region of Kamptal. The soils consist of primary rock (Gföhler gneiss with mica slate) with partial loess layers. The airy location allows a late harvest of fully ripe grapes without botrytis. Since 2005, there has been a seven-metre-high sculpture made of 130 iron balls in the shape of a grape, created by the artist Heimo Zobernig (the orange-coloured structure in the centre of the picture). Here, mainly the varieties Pinot Noir, Pinot Blanc and Grüner Veltliner are cultivated. The wineries Bründlmayer Willi, Grillmaier, Jurtschitsch, Loimer Fred, Rabl Rudolf and Summerer, for example, have shares in the vineyard.
