Feuerlay

Single vineyard (also Feuerley) in the municipality of Boppard in the German Mittelrhein growing region. It is considered the best part of the Bopparder Hamm vineyard, which is also a district of Boppard of the same name. To the west is the Mandelstein site, to the east the Ohlenberg site and above it the Weingrube site. The foot of the Feuerlay is only 50 meters away from the heat reflecting Rhine. The south-facing vineyards at 70 to 200 metres above sea level cover 17 hectares of vineyard area. With a slope of 40 to 65% (33°), the site is one of the steepest vineyards in Germany. The soil consists of grey-greenish clay slate weathering with blue-black inclusions and portions of quartzite and lime. There is a high proportion of fine soil with good water storage capacity. Riesling and Pinot Gris are cultivated here. The Didinger, Heilig Grab, Königshof, Müller Matthias, Perll August and Weingart Florian wineries, for example, all have shares.
