Riede (location) in the Austrian wine growing region Wachau. The vineyard is mentioned in a document as early as 1289, whereby the name refers to the geological formation of the vineyard, through which the border of the cadastral communities Dürnstein and Unterloiben runs. Therefore, a distinction is made between two areas. The "Dürnsteiner Schütt" vineyard in the west has a south-eastern orientation and consists of weathered soil with alluvial sand. Only the Riesling variety is cultivated here. In the east is the "Loibner Schütt" with stocks of Grüner Veltliner and Riesling. The partly terraced vineyards, facing south to south-east at 208 to 249 metres above sea level, have a slope gradient of up to 52% and comprise almost six hectares of vineyards. Deep gneiss weathering prevails, with sandy, stony soils with a low proportion of fine soil and therefore excellent drainage(water drainage). The Knoll Emmerich, Tegernseerhof and Urbanushof Paul Stierschneider wineries, for example, have shares in the reed.
