single vineyard in the municipality of Ahrweiler in the German wine-growing region of Ahr. The name is said to derive from a former business where staves (longitudinal boards) were made for wine barrels. The south to south-east facing vineyards with 35% slopes at 100 to 160 metres above sea level cover 35 hectares of vines. The soils consist mainly of loess loam with some greywacke weathering. The Pinot Noir, Blauer Portugieser, Dornfelder, Schwarzriesling (Pinot Meunier) and Weißburgunder (Pinot Blanc) varieties are cultivated here. Members of the Ahrweiler Winzer-Verein eG as well as the Bertram-Baltes, Deutzerhof, Maibachfarm and Weingut Sonnenberg wineries, for example, have shares in the site.

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.
