Riede (also Olm) in the Austrian wine-growing region Wien in the 19th district of Döbling in the cadastral municipality of Nußdorf, which belongs to Großlage Nußberg. The vineyard was classified by the WV WienWein as 1 ÖTW (Erste Lage of the Traditional Wine Estates of Austria). Ulm is the designation for a particularly favourable limestone soil, Olm for rotten tree mountain. The southeast-facing vineyard directly next to the Danube with a slope of 2 to 23 degrees at an altitude of 207 to 251 metres above sea level covers 3.5 hectares of vineyards. The soil consists of extremely calcareous shell limestone (Tertiary remains of a coral reef) with limestone in the subsoil and a small amount of clay. The typical varieties of the Wiener Gemischter Satz are cultivated, some of them with very old vines. Shares in the vineyard are held by the Hajszan-Neumann and Wieninger wineries.
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
