Lay (single vineyard Germany)

single vineyard in the municipality of Bernkastel-Kues (Bernkastel area) in the German Moselle wine-growing region. The west to southwest-facing vineyards with a 50% slope at 115 to 135 metres above sea level cover eight hectares of vines. The soils consist of medium-textured, stony, blue-coloured weathered clay slate. Here, mainly the Riesling variety is cultivated, for the most part in the traditional Moselle stake method of cultivation (single-pole training), which is still widespread here. The vineyards of Dr. Loosen, Dr. Pauly-Bergweiler, Geheimrat J. Wegeler Erben, Joh. Jos. Prüm, Molitor, S. A. Prüm, Wwe. Dr. H. Thanisch Erben Müller-Burggraef and Wwe. Dr. H. Thanisch Erben Thanisch all have shares in the site.

As honorary chairman of the Domäne Wachau, it is the easiest and quickest way for me to access the wein.plus encyclopaedia when I have questions. The certainty of receiving well-founded and up-to-date information here makes it an indispensable guide.
