Altärchen

single vineyard in the municipality of Trittenheim (Bernkastel area) in the German Moselle wine-growing region. To the north is the single vineyard pharmacy. The southeast to west-facing vineyards with slopes ranging from 10 to 55% cover 165 hectares of vines. They consist of weathered clay slate with gravel in places and alluvial soil at the foot. Due to the enormous size, the soils are very inhomogeneous; the best plots are in the middle area facing the banks of the Moselle. The Blees-Ferber, Clüsserath Ansgar, Clüsserath-Eifel, Clüsserath Ernst, Clüsserath-Hilt, Eifel Bernhard, Eifel Christoph, Eifel Franz-Josef, Loersch-Eifel, Lorenz Nikolaus, Milz Josef and Schmitt Heinz wineries, for example, have shares in the site. The picture shows the municipality of Trittenheim with the single vineyards Altärchen, Apotheke, Felsenkopf and Leiterchen.
