A single vineyard designation that occurs several times in Germany, derived from a former princely estate. There is a Kurfürstenberg in Waldrach (Mosel).
The east to south-southwest facing vineyards with 30 to 60% slopes cover 94 hectares of vines on shell limestone and Keuper soils. They are mainly planted with the varieties Silvaner, Riesling and Pinot Noir. Shares are held, for example, by the wineries Fröhlich Clemens, Fröhlich Michael, Sauer Horst, acid Rainer, Schäffer Egon, Weingut Am Lump and Zur Schwane.
As honorary chairman of the Domäne Wachau, it is the easiest and quickest way for me to access the wein.plus encyclopaedia when I have questions. The certainty of receiving well-founded and up-to-date information here makes it an indispensable guide.Hans-Georg Schwarz
