With the introduction of the 3 DAC regions - Vulkanland Steiermark, Südsteiermark and Weststeiermark - the three-tier quality model of estate wine, local wine and site wine finally made its way into the Styrian wine regions. Since then, the names of the vineyards have only been used for the top quality wines

In practice, however, not too much has changed for most of the Rieden wines, since most of the producers have been using site names only for their top wines anyway. Above all the members of the association "Steirische Terroir- & Klassikweingüter" (Styrian Terroir & Classic Wineries) had agreed on a clear delimitation of the qualities for a long time and additionally divided the vineyards into Erste (1STK) and Große (GSTK) Ried.
