ORGANIC AND SUSTAINABLE IN THE HEART OF CARNUNTUM
Our winery is located in the historic wine-growing region of Carnuntum, where the Romans planted the first vines more than 2000 years ago.
Probably the best red wines in Austria and wonderfully structured and expressive white wines are produced on 836 hectares in Carnuntum. Carnuntum stretches from the eastern edge of Vienna to the border with Slovakia, south of the Danube, which, with its surrounding alluvial forests, represents a cooling climate factor. The vineyards extend over three hilly landscapes: the Leithagebirge, the Arbesthaler Hügelland and the Hundsheimer Berge.
We filled our first bottles in 1988, today we cultivate 25 hectares of vineyards organically and sustainably. Our vineyards are located in and around the small wine-growing town of Göttlesbrunn, on the terraced terrain of the Arbesthal hill country.
They are exposed to the south and southeast. Our sites are dominated by loamy silt, sand and gravel. Loess deposits can also be found on some slopes. In combination with the nearby Ellender Forest, which provides cool air, the result is a juicy, spicy, close-meshed wine style. Red wines show a velvety fruitiness and unbelievable elegance.
Our wines are defined by a fine, dense and rich body without being overpowering and are always inspired by a touch of freshness.

The Riede Schüttenberg is located north of Göttlesbrunn. The vineyards are mainly oriented to the southwest but also to the south. At 284m, the Schüttenberg is the highest elevation in the Arbesthal hill country and is shaped by the gravel of the former Danube levels and their valley floors. The rock base under the gravel is made of clay, silt and sand. The soils on the rock base are deep and calcareous. The soils on the gravel are low in lime, barren and dry with rounded gravel and stones.

The Vineyards the Riede Bärnreiser look to the southwest and south. On the upper slope there is fine gravel made of quartz gravel, which in places also covers the fine-grained deposits of clay silt and sand from the former Pannon Lake. The soils are calcareous and mostly deep. The name is derived from the Middle High German "Reisern". It indicates that the natural vegetation on the barren, gravelly and hot location consisted only of undergrowth and brushwood.
