The Riede (Lage) is situated on the Kreuzberg in the area of the city of Krems in the Austrian wine-growing region of Kremstal (but it must not be confused with the Riede Kogl, which is situated on the other bank of the Danube and is also called Hollenburger Kogl after the district of Hollenburg in Krems). The name is derived from the Latin "cuculla" (monk's hood) after the shape of the hill. The south-facing, terraced vineyards with up to 50% slope inclination comprise 20 hectares of vineyards. They consist of barren soils with crystalline slate with a thin, calcareous loess layer. They are very well suited for Riesling, which is mostly grown here. There are also small stocks of Neuburger. To the east is the well-known Wachtberg reed, which was already mentioned in 1137 as "Wartberg". Here the varieties Grüner Veltliner, Müller-Thurgau, Traminer and Early Red Veltliner cultivated. From both vineyards you can enjoy a beautiful view of the city of Krems. The Müllner Johann, Salomon Undhof and Stagård vineyards, for example, have shares in the vineyard.
