Riede (site) in the municipality of Gols in the Burgenland wine-growing region of Neusiedlersee (Austria). It was created in the Middle Ages by enlarging the wine-growing area as an extension of the Altenberg vineyard, to which the name also refers. The vineyard, which faces gently southwest, covers about 14 hectares of vineyards with sandy-silty topsoil darkened by humus and with a low lime and gravel content. The parent material in the subsoil is sand and gravel with strongly calcareous layers. The varieties grown here are mainly Pinot Blanc (Pinot Noir), Neuburger, Chardonnay, Zweigelt and St. Laurent. The Nittnaus Gebrüder winery, for example, has a share in the vineyard.
The Wine lexicon helps me to stay up to date and refresh my knowledge. Thank you for this Lexicon that will never end in terms of topicality! That's what makes it so exciting to visit more often.Thorsten Rahn
