Backofen

single vineyard in the municipality of Kaub (Loreley area) in the German wine-growing region of the Middle Rhine. The name probably refers to a bakehouse. The south to southwest-facing vineyard at an altitude of 80 to 180 metres above sea level with a slope gradient of 50 to 70% covers three hectares of vineyards on clay-slate weathered soil with bedrock in the subsoil. The foot of the slope is only 70 metres from the Rhine. The Riesling variety is the main variety cultivated here. The Fetz Sonnenhang winery, for example, has a share in the site.
