Karthäuser (single vineyard Germany)

Single vineyard name in Germany, also used as a name component such as Karthäuserhofberg (Eitelsbach/Mosel) and Karthäuser Klosterberg (Monz/Mosel). The name refers to an earlier property or cultivation by the wine-growing monastic order of the Carthusians (Karthäuser).

Volkach-Astheim - Franconia (Maindreieck)

The name goes back to the Carthusian monastery near the vineyard, which was founded in 1409 by the knight Erkinger von Seinsheim. The vineyards, which face southwest to southeast in the shape of a slight crescent at an altitude of 190 to 255 metres above sea level with a slope of 30 to 35%, cover 60 hectares of vineyards. The deep soils consist of alluvial sands from the Main River, weathered shell limestone and Lettenkeuper with good water storage capacity. The varieties cultivated here are mainly Pinot Blanc and Pinot Noir. Shares are held, for example, by the wineries Fröhlich Clemens, Fürst Rudolf, Juliusspital, Max Müller I and Rothe Manfred.
