Langenstück

single vineyard in the municipality of Eltville-Rauenthal in the German wine-growing region of Rheingau. It was already mentioned in documents in the 15th century as "Langenstuck", the name being derived from the elongated shape of the terrain. The site begins at the western foot of the Rauenthaler Berg and encloses the two single vineyards Baiken and Gehrn in several terraces. The southwest-facing vineyards, with slopes ranging from 10 to 35%, cover 26 hectares of vines. The soils consist mainly of phyllite rock with volcanic components, as well as loess, clay and marl, which ensure a good water supply even in dry years. The Riesling and Pinot Noir varieties are cultivated here. The Albus, H. J. Ernst and Laquai Paul wineries, for example, have shares in the site. There is another single vineyard called Langenstück in the Rheingau municipality of Walluf.
