Castle dump

Single location in the municipalities of Schnait/Beutelsbach (Remstal-Stuttgart area) in the German Württemberg growing region. It was first mentioned in a document as early as 1600 and bore the name "Schnaiter Halde" until the consolidation of land in 1971. The vineyards, which face west to south-east at an altitude of 300 to 350 metres above sea level with a slope gradient of 5 to 40%, cover 76 hectares of vineyard area. They are very well protected from the wind by the surrounding Schurwald. The soil consists of keuper, sand and coloured marl. The Trollinger(Schiava Grossa) andPinot Noir varieties are cultivated here. The Ellwanger Jürgen, Haidle Karl and Schnaitmann wineries, for example, have a share in the site.
