Felseneck

This is a single vineyard name that occurs several times in the German Nahe wine-growing region. In addition to the three listed in detail below, there is a fourth site in the municipality of Gutenberg.

Municipality of Bad Münster am Stein-Ebernburg (Großlage Burgweg): The vineyard, which faces southwest to south and is embedded in a group of rocks, is 117 to 167 metres above sea level with a slope of 40 to 60% and covers only 0.7 hectares of vineyards. The soil consists of stony-gritty hanging loam over the volcanic rock rhyolite. Riesling is cultivated here. The Jung Eckard winery is the sole owner of the site.

Municipality of Bockenau (Großlage Rosengarten): The south to southwest facing vineyard at an altitude of 200 to 300 metres above sea level with a slope of 40 to 60% covers almost nine hectares of vineyards in the valley basin of the Ellerbach (side valley of the upper Nahe). The soil consists of a conglomerate of blue Devonian slate, white-grey quartzite and basalt rubble with loam over loess at the foot of the site. Forests above the site provide optimal protection from cold downdrafts. Riesling is the main variety cultivated here. The Schäfer-Fröhlich winery, for example, has a share in the site.
