Hahn (single location Germany)

Single location in the municipality of Bacharach near the Loreley in the German Mittelrhein growing region. The name probably derives from "Hain", which describes a piece of land enclosed by a hedge or forest. The second version traces its origin back to the former Hane monastery, which once owned the vineyard. The vineyard, which is oriented to the south and south-south-east, at an altitude of 90 to 200 metres above sea level with a slope gradient of 55 to 65%, comprises just under six hectares of vines, which extend into a side valley directly on the banks of the Rhine. The heat-storing soils consist of dark, weathered Devonian slate with a high rock content. Roof slate was mined under the vineyard until 1936. Due to the low water storage capacity, artificial irrigation (drip irrigation) is necessary.Pinot Noir is cultivated in the lower area and Riesling above. The site is predominantly owned by the Toni Jost Hahnenhof winery.
