single vineyard in the municipality of Bürgstadt (Mainviereck area) in the German wine-growing region of Franconia. It is an old vineyard called "Hunsrück" (without "d"), which was incorporated into the Centgrafenberg vineyard along with several other vineyards in the course of land consolidation in 1972. In 2011, it was officially included in the Franconian vineyard register (with "d"). The vineyards cover around 12 hectares of vines. The 0.5 to 2 metre thick, red-coloured, stone-rich crumb above the rocky massif is the result of weathering of bundsandstein. The soil has good water drainage. The Pinot Noir variety is cultivated here. The Fürst Rudolf and Walter Josef 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
