Ried BRÜNDLSTALL – Subried KIRCHENSTEIG
The vineyards of Ried Bründlstall lie at an elevation of between approximatlely 180 and 230 metres. with the majority facing south, although some face south-west to some extent. They are divided into terraces on the Wagram scarp, with those at the top, on the plateau, lying flat. Right at the bottom, the predominantly calcareous, approximately 17-million-year-old clayey silts and sands from the ancient seabed are exposed. These have been covered by lime-deficient to non-calcareous sandy gravels, indicating a former valley floor of the ancient Danube, and these are also found, covered by loess, in the substratum of the plateau. The vineyards are recorded under the name of “Wagram” in both the Franziszeische Kataster (Austrian cadastral survey) from 1823 and the Administrativkarte (administrative map, 1864–1881).
