Riede vineyard in the municipality of Spitz a. d. Donau in the Lower Austrian wine-growing region of Wachau. It is the front side of Spitz's local mountain, Burgberg, which can be seen from afar. The main vineyard of the same name, Burgberg, is located on the back of the side of the mountain facing away from the Danube. The name "Tausendeimerberg" refers to the fact that a lot of wine is produced here in good years (1,000 buckets = 56,000 litres). The steeply terraced vineyards, which face south to south-east, lie at an altitude of 214 to 309 metres above sea level, have a slope of up to 84% and cover 12 hectares of vineyards. The two sides of the mountain are very different in terms of soil type.
