Herb Mountain

Single location in the municipality of Walporzheim in the German growing region of Ahr. The name probably goes back to the Romans, who cultivated wine and herbs here. The location has been considered one of the best in the Ahr since ancient times. It largely encloses the small single vineyard fermentation chamber. The south-facing, terraced vineyard at an altitude of 110 to 180 metres above sea level with a slope of 15 to 60% comprises five hectares of vines. The stony soil consists of greywacke and slate weathering with fine sandy loam. Mainly the varietyPinot Noir, Dornfelder and Müller-Thurgau are cultivated here. The Adeneuer, Ahr Winzer eG, Kriechel Peter, Meyer-Näkel and Weingut Sonnenberg wineries, as well as winegrowers from the Mayschoß-Altenahr winegrowers' cooperative and the Walporzheim wine manufactory, for example, have shares in the site.
