In the sunshine

Single vineyard site in the municipality of Siebeldingen (area Südliche Weinstraße) in the German wine-growing region Pfalz. The south-facing vineyards are situated at an altitude of 160 to 225 metres above sea level with a slope gradient of 5 to 20% and comprise around hundreds of hectares of vineyards. The soils, which are quite different due to their size, consist of limestone weathered rock, gravel, mottled sandstone, sand, clay and clayey lime marl. Only a few plots can be considered particularly privileged. Before the land consolidation in 1971, individual areas of the site were known by different names depending on the grape varieties cultivated. The privileged Riesling parcel on gravel, clay, sand and red sandstone is the Gewann Ganshorn, which is now classified as a cadastral site. The area with the two varieties Spätburgunder and Weißburgunder on predominantly shell limestone soil was formerly known as the "Siebeldinger Berg". The Feitig-Richter, Gies-Düppel, Ökonomierat Rebholz, Schneider Eugen and SieneR - Wettstein wineries, for example, all have shares in the site.
