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.
