single vineyard in the municipality of Oestrich in the German wine-growing region of Rheingau. There are three versions for the origin of the name. On the one hand, the name could be derived from a hillside that bordered on the original location of Lenchen, and on the other hand, many words in the Oestrich dialect are diminutive with "sch". Thus a small fief is a Lehenschen, from which the present spelling Lenchen may have developed. According to the third version, the name is derived from the old name "Landflechterbrunnen". The inclusion of neighbouring sites resulted in a strong enlargement. The relatively flat south-facing vineyards at 120 to 150 metres above sea level with a slope of 3 to 15% cover 120 hectares of vines.
