single vineyard in the municipality of Piesport (Bernkastel area) in the German Moselle wine-growing region. In the Prussian site classification of 1868, it was one of the highest classified sites on the Moselle. The southeast-facing vineyard at an altitude of 120 to 200 metres with a slope of 50 to 75% covers five hectares of vines on red slate soil with a high proportion of fine earth. A steep sandstone staircase with over 600 steps leads from the Moselle to the upper end. Here, mainly the Riesling variety is cultivated. The Haart Reinhold and Später-Veit wineries, for example, have shares in the site.
For my many years of work as an editor with a wine and culinary focus, I always like to inform myself about special questions at Wine lexicon. Spontaneous reading and following links often leads to exciting discoveries in the wide world of wine.Dr. Christa Hanten
