Origin/Single vineyards

Our wine-growing areas – where our vines flourish…

The naming “Riede” (single vineyard), in former times known as “Lage”, is used to identify a wine-growing area.
Specifically, the term “Riede” (single vineyard) means a defined vineyard or vineyard area (single location) with the similar geographic, soil and micro-climatic conditions, or the combination of several adjacent areas within a growing area or within a municipality.

Various grape varieties growing within a single vineyard (“Ried”) demonstrate similar characteristics due to the vineyard location/-orientation and soil conditions of this particular single vineyard.

“Rieden” (single vineyards) are mandatory to mark with the prefix of the word “Ried”, in order to take the origin thoughts more into account.

To illustrate this and to bring it to life for you, we have provided all our single vineyards with new information boards. We invite you to a vineyard-round-trip called “SCHA(RRR)FE Rieden-Rund-Reise”, (meaning “SHEEP Single Vineyard-Round-Trip”)

As of now, all our single vineyards are equipped with new information boards. On these boards you can find relevant and topical information about our vineyards regarding location/orientation, history and their unique character.
