Our Vineyards

"Riede" is the Austrian word for a "single site", or a "cru", and must be mentioned on the label before the name of the vineyard, according to a new law. We think this sounds quite harmonious. Ried Mordthal, for example. Very Austrian and absolutely unmistakable.

Where are our vineyards located? All of them are historical sites in Wagram, a widely visible terrace of glacial loess. The soil therefore consists of loess, but also sandstone and tertiary gravel. You can read about them in detail here:

Ried Mordthal

The name "Mordthal" comes from the old name "am Ord", which in our usage means something like "at the end" or "the utmost". The A of "am Ord" is not pronounced, the M is contracted with the "Ord". Thus, the outermost and rearmost valley in the wine village of Ruppersthal is called "Mordthal", the valley on the Ord.

The Mordthal is a narrow valley with no exit that was used as a strategic hunting aid in the Stone Age. The hunters cornered and killed mammoths here, documented by many bone finds. The word "murder" was never used for hunting, as has always been wrongly assumed, so there is no connection.

Ried Himmelreich

Ried Himmelreich is the highest point in the village of Zaussenberg, where our winery is located. Many vineyards were given their old names based on their altitude: "Plafond (Ceiling)", "Gloria (Glory)", "Engelberg (Angel’s Mount)" and also "Himmelreich", which means "at the top".

Ried Schlossberg

The Schlossberg is a pure loess site, whose name refers to the mountain behind Winkelberg Castle in Mitterstockstall. It is the local mountain of the castle, so to speak. One of the best locations with an almost Pannonian influence, which makes the style of  Wagram Grüner Veltliner from loess, which is called baroque by some, so unique.

Ried Steinberg

Ried Steinberg is one of the largest, but also one of the best locations in Wagram.

Josef Fritz: "For me, it’s the ideal location for Roter Veltliner: dry and hot, just what this indigenous variety needs. Nowhere else does it thrive as well and as healthily as here."

The name comes from the stony sandy soil, which alternates with loess here. At the foot of the mountain, loess dominates and merges further up into sandy loess over a stony subsoil. Tertiary gravel dominates at the top, almost 370 metres above sea level. Steinberg is one of the very highest sites in Wagram.

Ried Schafberg

The Riede Schafberg is one of the highest single sites of the Wagram. The ground consists of fine sand crossed with gravel. The north-eastern orientation and the prevailing wind guarantee a long growing season of the grapes, moderate gradations and therefore predestined the Schafberg for light, fresh and very mineral wines.
