Klostersatz is the name for the vineyards beside the town of Oberloiben to the west.

Soil profile Klostersatz

Particularly in the eastern Wachau, in the bend in the Danube between Loiben and Dürnstein, large areas of the sand and rubble deposited by the Danube are planted in grapes.
The topsoil in the Klostersatz profile is characterised by well-sorted sands, which indicate that the river was flowing slowly during deposition. In contrast, the rubble underneath was deposited during faster flows. The high degree of rounding of the gravel bears witness to the long transport distance from the Alps."
