Ried Schreck

This is the steepest site in the Kremstal; it faces south toward the Frauenberg Church. In the past, vines were planted very densely here, and grape-thieves could easily hide between them. There was a lookout on the church tower, who yelled loudly from time to time during the harvest in order to scare away the thieves. (»Schreck« is a German word for fright, and the robbers fled!) Old vines grow here in the meagre blue schist of Ried Schreck, which is predestined for Riesling. The steepness of the site required construction of stone terraces to enable cultivation of the vineyard. And here all work must be done by hand.
