Long Devil

Riede in the Austrian wine-growing region Wien 19th district Döbling in the cadastral municipality Nußdorf. It belongs to the Großlage Nußberg. The vineyard was classified by the Winzervereinigung WienWein as 1 ÖTW (Erste Lage of Austria's traditional vineyards). The elongated vineyard, 900 metres long and 400 metres wide, tapers off at the end; the highest point is on the crest of the Nußberg. It was already cultivated in the 14th century. Workers at that time cursed the vineyard because it was "difficult to work because of its length". A document from 1384 mentions the name "Langtewel, gelegen am Nusperg". The south-facing vineyards, with slopes ranging from 0 to 14 degrees, lie between 289 and 340 metres above sea level and cover 10 hectares of vineyards. The common grape varieties such as Burgundian varieties for the Viennese Gemischter Satz are cultivated. The different soils consist of marine sediments with a particularly high lime content in the upper area and calcareous sandstone with a high quartz content in the lower area. Shares in the vineyard are held, for example, by the wineries Mayer am Pfarrplatz (80%), Mayer Vitikultur, Rotes Haus and Zahel.
