Klaus (single vineyard Germany)

single vineyard in the municipality of Geisenheim / Johannisberg in the German wine-growing region of Rheingau. The name is derived from the Sankt-Georgsklause at the foot of the Johannisberg, which was first mentioned around 1170 and existed until 1452. The site itself was first mentioned in 1248. The south-facing vineyard at 90 to 120 metres above sea level with a slope of up to 20% covers 2.1 hectares of vines. The deep soil consists of calcareous loess with some gravel and has an excellent water retention capacity. Riesling is cultivated here. The Ankermühle, Johannishof Eser, Prinz von Hessen and Schloss Schönborn wineries, for example, have shares.
