Golden Wagon

Single location in the municipality of Radebeul (Oberlößnitz) in the German growing region of Saxony. To the west of this is the Steinrücken site. A vineyard called Goldener Wagen west of the Spitzhaus stairs was first mentioned in 1710. However, this had already been terraced and developed at the beginning of the 17th century by Württemberg winegrowers under the leadership of winegrower Jacob Löffler by building dry stone walls. The name refers to the excellent quality of the wine, even with low yields. Today's location was created by combining the vineyards Albrechtsberg, Goldener Wagen, Hermannsberg, Ravensburg and Spitzhaus. The mainly south-facing vineyards cover 34 hectares of vineyard area. Here the varieties Müller-Thurgau, Riesling, Pinot Blanc, Ruländer, Traminer, Kerner, Scheurebe and Pinot Noir are cultivated. The Hoflößnitz, Schloss Wackerbarth and WG Oberlößnitz wineries, for example, have shares in the site.
