Spitzen-Riede (location) in the municipality of Stetten near Korneuburg in the south of the Lower Austrian wine growing region Weinviertel. The south-facing steep vineyard has loess and loamy soils, which are partly interspersed with the remains of fossil shells and snails. The reed has a very high water storage capacity. Due to its location on the edge of a large forest, it is exposed to large temperature differences between day and night. Together with the strong autumn fog, this provides very good conditions for complex, aromatic white wines. Especially Grüner Veltliner, but also Zweigelt is cultivated here. The Pfaffl Roman vineyard, for example, has a share in the reed.
