Riede or location (also Loibner mountain) in the municipality Unterloiben (district of Dürnstein ) at the eastern end of the Lower Austrian winegrowing area Wachau, Due to the large extent and the large Höhenuntzerschiede there are the four Subrieden Langen Zung, Rauheneck, Rothenberg and Süßenberg. As one of the oldest vineyards in the Wachau, it was already documented in 1381 as "Weingarten Büns to Lewben on the Leubnerberg" documentary. The west to southeast aligned vineyards with up to 77% slope Tilt cover 31 hectares of vineyards on the 420 meter high Loibenberg in 213-396 meters above sea level. Geologically, the Loibenberg is characterized by the primeval soil, the so-called "Gföhler gneiss", which originated from granite. In some parts like Rothenberg there are massive loess plots. The sandy-stony soil favors the drainage and facilitates rooting. The vineyards are secured with dry stone walls.
Due to warm air currents, it is often very hot, the Loibenberg is therefore also referred to as "stove of the Wachau". That is why an artificial irrigation (Drip irrigation). Here are mainly the white wine varieties Riesling and Green Valtellina cultured. Shares in the vineyard, for example, have the wineries Alzinger. Bäuerl Wolfgang. Dinstlgut. Domain Wachau.
