Salzberg

Riede (location) in the municipality Gols in the Burgenland wine region Lake Neusiedl (Austria). Salzberg means vineyards that lie on “salty” ground, that is, valuable and good ground. An anecdote explains the name through a transmission error in old property lists. It is said that “Satzberg” was created by forgetting the small line at “t” “Salzberg”. It is a long, steep southwest slope on the edge of the Parndorfer Platte. The dark colored topsoil is slightly calcareous. The clearly delineated raw material underneath consists of approximately 600,000 year old Danube gravel. The reddish-brown color was caused by the weathering of iron oxides. The vineyard covers 32 hectares of vineyards, where mainly the local red wine varieties Zweigelt and Blaufränkisch such as Merlot be grown. The wineries, for example, have shares in the vineyard Beck Judith. Gsellmann Andreas. Gsellmann Siegfried. Heinrich Gernot. Leitner Gernot. Nittnau's brothers and Renner Helmuth,
