Canon

Single location in the municipality of Piesport (Bernkastel area) in the Moselle growing region. It lies directly adjacent to Piesport in the middle of the Goldtröpfchen vineyard. The south-facing vineyard at an altitude of 120 to 150 metres above sea level with a slope gradient of 30 to 70% comprises five hectares of vineyards. The stony, deep clay slate weathered soil is interspersed with quartz and has a high proportion of fine earth. Due to the extensive forest areas above the steep vineyards, there is an excellent water balance. In the centre there is a restored grand-press facility dating back to Roman times, which is used annually during a large wine festival. Here mainly the Riesling variety is cultivated. Shares are held, for example, by the vineyards Hain Kurt, Haart Johann, Haart Reinhold, Reichsgraf von Kesselstatt, Reuscher-Haart and Später-Veit.
