The best Rieden are oak (light loess soil with very high lime content), Kreimelberg (gravel soil up to 30 m deep) and Laa (sandy brown earth with very high lime content). 85% of the white varieties Grüner Veltliner, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Roter Veltliner, Pinot Blanc and Riesling, as well as the red varieties Zweigelt and Merlot are processed.
