Riede (site) in the municipality of Joching in the Lower Austrian wine-growing region of Wachau. It should not be confused with the Kollmütz vineyard in neighbouring Wösendorf. The southeast-facing, terraced vineyards at an altitude of 249 to 361 metres above sea level have a slope of up to 51% and cover 18 hectares. The soils consist of loose sediments with brown slate and strong loess layers. The white wine varieties Grüner Veltliner and Riesling are cultivated here. Members of the Domäne Wachau winegrowers' cooperative and the Eigl Christian, Hirtzberger Franz, Holzapfel Karl, Jamek Josef, Machherndl, Pichler Franz and PAX wineries, for example, have shares in the vineyard.

There is a vast number of sources on the web where one can acquire knowledge about wine. But none has the scope, timeliness and accuracy of the information in the encyclopaedia at wein.plus. I use it regularly and rely on it.
