Burg Ravensburger Husarenkappe

single vineyard in the municipality of Sulzfeld (Kraichgau area) in the German wine-growing region of Baden. The name goes back to Baron Benjamin Göler von Ravensburg (1782-1834), the commander of the Baden Hussar Regiment. According to legend, he received some Riesling seedlings as a gift from his supreme commander, Margrave Friedrich von Baden, brought them to the municipality of Sulzfeld in his uniform cap, planted them on the Burgberg and thus founded the Husarenkappe vineyard. The vineyard, which is oriented from southwest to south and has a slope of 10 to 25%, covers 5.5 hectares of vineyards. On the shallow soil of gypsum keuper and marl, only the Riesling variety is still cultivated today. The vineyard is solely owned by the Burg Ravensburg wine estate.

Serious sources on the internet are rare - and Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one such source. When researching for my articles, I regularly consult the wein.plus encyclopaedia. There I get reliable and detailed information.
