single vineyard in the two municipalities of Dhron / Neumagen-Dhron and Piesport (Bernkastel area) in the German wine-growing region of Mosel. Alternatively, the designations "Hofberg" and "Dhronhofberger" may be used on bottle labels. In the Prussian classification of vineyards in 1868, the Kernanlage was described as one of the best vineyards of the Middle Moselle. The monks of the Benedictine Abbey of Tholey in Saarland already appreciated the high quality of this single vineyard. In the course of the land consolidation in 1971, the area was considerably extended to include land on the other side of the Moselle. The vineyards, which face east-southeast on the western bank and have slopes of 30 to 60%, cover 85 hectares of vineyards in a side valley of the Moselle along the Dhronbach. The proportions are inhomogeneous due to the size. The shallow, partly stony soils consist of weathered, blue-coloured clay slate with quartzite veins and iron oxide inclusions. The best plots are in the middle area. Here, the Riesling variety is cultivated above all. The wineries A. J. Adam, Eifel Christoph, Loersch-Eifel, Milz Josef and Staffelter Hof, for example, have shares in the site.
