Kupfergrube

Famous single vineyard in the municipality of Schloßböckelheim on the middle Nahe in the Großlage Burgweg in the German Nahe wine-growing region. It was built on a former prospecting site where copper was mined until the beginning of the 20th century. In 1914, an experimental vineyard of the Prussian State Domain (today Gut Hermannsberg) was planted here in thousands of painstaking hours of work. The vineyard became world-famous with the 1921 Riesling Trockenbeerenauslese, which had an incredible 308 °Oechsle (around 61 KMW). The terraced vineyards, which are mainly south-facing and partly also south-west and south-east facing, at an altitude of 140 to 265 metres above sea level with a slope of 35 to 65%, cover 13 hectares of vineyards.
