Castle Ravensburger Fat Franz

single vineyard in the municipality of Sulzfeld (Kraichgau area) in the German wine-growing region of Baden. It is named after Baron Franz Göler von Ravensburg (1701-1765), who was very fond of culinary delights and went down in family annals as "Dicker Herr". The vineyard, which faces southeast and west-southwest respectively and is divided into two parcels with slopes ranging from 10 to 40%, covers seven hectares of vines. The deep soil consists of gypsum keuper. Here, mainly Lemberger and Schwarzriesling are cultivated. 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.
