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 Gneiss) 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 characterized by extreme solar heat flooding the terraces with incoming cold air from the Waldviertel.

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. The Vogelsang vineyard, which is often referred to as the Loiserberg sub-vineyard, follows.
