Centgrafenberg

Single location in the community of Bürgstadt (Mainviereck area) in the German wine growing region of Franconia. The term "Cent" means tithe, the Centgraf collected the "tenth part" for the Archbishop of Mainz in taxes in kind. The present extent of the vineyard was created during the land consolidation in 1971, when the six vineyards Bischof, Gries, Hohenlinde, Hunsrück, Vogelsberg and Walzrain were added. In 2011, however, the Hunsrück vineyard was officially re-registered as an independent vineyard in the Franconian vineyard register under the old name Hundsrück (with "d"). The southwest and south-southeast oriented vineyards at 150 to 250 meters above sea level with 10 to 40% slope inclination cover 46 hectares of vineyard area. The stony soils consist of coloured stone weathering interspersed with sand and clay with changing fine soils. There is a good water supply. The varieties cultivated here include Frühburgunder, Spätburgunder(Pinot Noir), Grauburgunder(Pinot Gris), Weißburgunder(Pinot Blanc), Müller-Thurgau, Silvaner and Riesling. Shares in the vineyard are held, for example, by the wineries Fürst Rudolf, Stich Gerhard, Stritzinger and Walter Josef.
