Vogelsang (Riede Austria)

Common name for Rieden (sites) in German-speaking countries. The name indicates a diverse bird population. There are at least three of them in Austria

Community of Bockfließ in the wine-growing region of Weinviertel (Lower Austria): Here, mainly the two varieties Grüner Veltliner and Zweigelt are cultivated. Shares in the vineyard are held, for example, by the wineries H&B Haferl, H&M Hofer and Kaiser.

Community Langenlois in the wine-growing region of Kamptal (Lower Austria): The vineyard, also called "Berg Vogelsang", is located on the Loiserberg and is therefore often referred to as a subriede of the same. It curves towards the west and borders on a mixed forest. The soil consists of primary rock with garnet and mica slate. Here, mainly the Grüner Veltliner variety is cultivated. The Bründlmayer Willi winery, for example, has a share in the vineyard.

Community Rust (Burgenland): The part facing Lake Neusiedl consists of weathered mica schist with little lime and a lot of loam, while the western part is dominated by loess. Here the varieties Welschriesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Furmint, Merlot and Blaufränkisch are cultivated. The wineries Bachkönig, Esterházy, Kraft Harald, Schröck Heidi, Triebaumer Ernst and Wenzel Robert, for example, have shares.
