Almond stone

Single location in the municipality of Boppard in the German Mittelrhein wine growing region. The name is probably due to the original vegetation of the mountain with pines (mhd. almond = pine). It is part of the vineyard Bopparder Hamm, which is also a district of Boppard of the same name. To the east is the Feuerlay site, above the Weingrube site. The foot of the slope is only 50 to 80 meters away from the Rhine. The south-south-east facing vineyards are situated at an altitude of 70 to 150 metres above sea level and cover 11 hectares on greenish clay slate weathered soil. With a gradient of up to 70% (35°), the site is one of the steepest vineyards in Germany and also in Europe. The Riesling in particular is cultivated here. The Didinger, Heilig Grab, Königshof, Müller Matthias and Perll August wineries, for example, have a share in the site.
