Burggarten (single vineyard Germany)

A single-location designation that occurs several times in Germany and refers to a fortress that may no longer exist.

Heimersheim - Ahr

It owes its name to the castle complex that the German King Philip of Swabia (1177-1208) had built as his imperial seat. It is located on a former volcanic cone below the single vineyard Landskrone. The south-west to south-east facing vineyards at 80 to 200 metres above sea level with slopes of up to 50% cover almost 15 hectares of vines. The soils consist of greywacke, greywacke slate, loess, loess loam and hanging loam, as well as basalt in the upper area. The main varieties cultivated here are Pinot Noir, Domina and Riesling. The producers Adeneuer, Ahr Winzer eG, Bertram Julia, Burggarten, Maibachfarm, Meyer-Näkel and Nelles Thomas, for example, have shares in the site.
