single vineyard in the municipality of Piesport (Bernkastel area) in the Moselle wine-growing region. It is located directly adjacent to Piesport in the middle of the single vineyard Goldtröpfchen. The south-facing vineyard at 120 to 150 metres above sea level with a slope of 30 to 70% covers five hectares of vines. The stony, deep clay-slate weathered soil is interspersed with quartz and has a high proportion of fine earth. Due to the extensive wooded areas above the steep vineyards, there is an excellent water balance. In the centre is a restored large wine press dating back to Roman times, which is used annually during a large wine festival. Here, mainly the Riesling variety is cultivated. Shares are held, for example, by the wineries Hain Kurt, Haart Johann, Haart Reinhold, Reichsgraf von Kesselstatt, Reuscher-Haart and Später-Veit.
The Wine lexicon helps me to stay up to date and refresh my knowledge. Thank you for this Lexicon that will never end in terms of topicality! That's what makes it so exciting to visit more often.Thorsten Rahn
