Riede (site) in the Lower Austrian wine-growing region of Kamptal, west of the municipality of Langenlois. The steeply terraced vineyard faces south and southeast. The soil consists of primary rock weathering with inclusions of crystalline slate (Gföhler Gneis) and clay, covered with a thin layer of humus. The roots must therefore penetrate deep into the rocky subsoil. The special climate of the Loiserberg is characterised by extreme solar heat flooding the terraces with incoming cold air from the Waldviertel. This mixture of warm and cool air enhances the fruit aromas. On the Loiserberg, the varieties Blaufränkisch and Pinot Blanc, which were rather exotic for this region at the time, were planted for the first time in 1935. The winegrower Willi Bründlmayer introduced the Lyra method of cultivation here for the first time in Austria in 1935. The main varieties cultivated are Riesling, Grüner Veltliner, Pinot Blanc and Muscat. The Bründlmayer Willi, Ehn Ludwig and Jurtschitsch wineries, for example, have shares in the vineyard. This is followed by the Vogelsang vineyard, which is often referred to as the Loiserberg sub-vineyard.
