Single location in the municipality of Ahrweiler in the German Ahr wine growing region. The name is said to derive from a former factory where staves (longitudinal boards) for wine barrels were produced. The south-southeast facing vineyards with 35% slope at 100 to 160 meters above sea level cover 35 hectares of vineyard area. The soils consist mainly of loess loam with some greywacke weathering. The varietiesPinot Noir, Blauer Portugieser, Dornfelder,Pinot Meunier andPinot Blanc are cultivated here. Members of the Ahrweiler Winzer-Verein eG, for example, as well as the wineries Bertram Julia, Deutzerhof, Maibachfarm and Weingut Sonnenberg have shares in the estate.
