The Ried Burgstall is one of the eastern Loiben vineyards. It refers to a rock terrace that towers around 30 metres over its surroundings. The name comes from a small medieval fortification that was built for defence purposes. The site extends over a purely gneiss and granite soil with a drifted sand layer and is known for its many hours of sunshine.
