Riede (Lage) in the cadastral community of Pössnitz, municipality of Leutschach on the wine route in the Austrian wine growing region of southern Styria. However, only the southernmost part of this cadastral municipality is designated as Pössnitzberg, which is directly bordering Slovenia. The rocky and enormously steep vineyards, surrounded by meadows and forests, provide a sustainable habitat for the diversity of flora and fauna. Different climates come together, including warm up winds from the neighbouring Slovenian valleys and cool air currents from the western Koralpe. The great differences in temperature result in an enormous depth of fruit and a variety of aromas in the wines.
In the past, you needed a wealth of encyclopaedias and specialist literature to keep up to date in your vinophile professional life. Today, Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one of my best helpers and can rightly be called the "bible of wine knowledge".Prof. Dr. Walter Kutscher
