Ried Haidacker 1ÖTW
Ried Haidacker is the gentle foothills of the Danube gravel chain of hills in Göttlesbrunn. Around 10 million years ago, the very gently sloping north-eastern location was an extensive landscape of lakes and rivers with alluvial forests.
Very calcareous and deep soil from sandy partly silty-clayey and gravelly sediments.
