The Ried(Cru) Berg is located in the village of Getzersdorf and is a steep east-facing terraced slope with a gradient of more than 35%. The soil, which lies over calcareous conglomerate of the Hollenburg-Karlstetten formation, is very meager with only a thin layer of humus.The high iron and manganese content give the soil its reddish colour.
The Austrian meaning of ‘Berg’ is mountain, and as the name already suggests these vineyards lie somewhat higher than the others. A lengthier ripening process of the grapes on the vine is thus possible, and only the cream of the crop will subsequently be harvested. These wines prove that they belong among the best of its kind.
Altitude: 260 to 325m.
