Feuerlay

single vineyard (also Feuerley) in the municipality of Boppard in the German wine-growing region of the Middle Rhine. It is considered the best part of the Bopparder Hamm vineyard, which is also a district of Boppard with the same name. To the west is the Mandelstein vineyard, to the east the Ohlenberg vineyard and above it the Weingrube vineyard. The foot of the Feuerlay slope is only 50 metres from the heat-reflecting Rhine. The south-facing vineyards at 70 to 200 metres above sea level cover 17 hectares of vines. 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 proportions of quartzite and limestone. There is a high proportion of fine soil with good water retention capacity. Riesling and Pinot Gris are cultivated here. Shares are held, for example, by the Didinger, Heilig Grab, Königshof, Müller Matthias, Perll August and Weingart Florian wineries.
