Riede or location in the municipality of Großhöflein in the Burgenland wine-growing region Leithaberg (Austria). It was mentioned as a document in 1570. The south-east facing vineyards cover around 10 hectares of vineyards at 200 to 240 meters above sea level at the foot of the eponymous Leitha Mountains. They form a gently curved boiler that is protected from the wind by an adjacent forest. The topographical conditions ensure rapid warming in the morning and slow cooling in the late afternoon. The soil consists of sandy loam with a bit of lime and heavily weathered mica slate (Austrian name rock). All of this creates good conditions for acidic and bouquet-rich white wines. Here are mainly the white wines Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc cultured. The wineries, for example, have shares in the vineyard Esterházy, Kollwentz, Leberl Alexander and Scheiblhofer.
